MARKET INTELLIGENCE AVERAGE MONTHLY EMI COMPARISON RECORD PERFORMANCE FOR FINER AND MID MICRONS EMI’S RECORD RUN CONTINUES The chart opposite provides a snapshot of how well the AWEX monthly Eastern Market Indicator (EMI) and a range of microns have performed for the past three months (February 2018 – April 2018) in Australian dollar terms compared with the previous five years February 2013 to January 2018 (circles) and the decade previous to that, February 2003 – January 2013 (squares). For the past three months, the monthly EMI averaged at $17.93, tracking at the 100th percentile against the previous five- year monthly EMI. This means that in the previous five years the monthly EMI has never recorded a price higher than the current $17.93 (February 2018 – April 2018). As well as tracking at the 100th percentile over the previous five years, the EMI is also at the 100th percentile when compared to the decade February 2003 – January 2013. This means the current EMI of $17.93 (February 2018 – April 2018) is higher now than it was for all that decade. The mid and finer microns and Merino Cardings (MC) have continued to perform particularly well recently. For the past three months Merino Cardings averaged at $13.40, operating at the 97th 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 $23.48 (100th percentile for the previous five years and 100th percentile for the previous decade), 21 micron averaged at $19.01 (also 100th percentile for the previous five years and 100th percentile for the previous decade), and 28 micron averaged at $8.50 (88th percentile and 100th percentile respectively).
