For the past three months, the monthly EMI averaged at $13.67, tracking at the 98th percentile against the previous five-year monthly EMI. The percentile value (98th) indicates that the five-year monthly EMI recorded a price lower than $13.67 for 98% of the time. Or to put it another way, in the previous five years the monthly EMI has recorded a price higher than the current $13.67 (November 2016 – January 2017) for only 2% of the time. While the EMI is tracking at the 98th percentile over the previous five years, it is at the 100th percentile when compared to the decade November 2001 – October 2011. This means the current EMI of $13.67 (November 2016 – January 2017) is higher now than it was for all that decade. The mid and finer microns and Merino Cardings (MC) have performed particularly well recently. For the past three months Merino Cardings averaged at $11.38, operating at the 98th percentile for the previous five years and the 100th percentile for the previous decade. For the same period, 18 micron averaged at a monthly value of $17.49 (100th percentile and 97th percentile respectively), 21 micron averaged at $14.23 (95th percentile and 100th percentile), and 28 micron averaged at $6.73 (36th percentile and 91st percentile).
