The Wool Trade. (Windeler et Bowes. Circular 8 Oct. 68)

Improvement in sales of October. Must have beneficial effect upon trade in interior up to the opening of next sales, on or after 19. November [.] Demand for manufactured goods for export continues limited. So lange not to be expected – as this continues – higher quotations of wool. But we think prices have passed the lowest price point. For the November sales 56,400 bales are here or afloat; further arrivals, chiefly Capes, zusammen mit 35 or 40,000 Bales, held back or withdrawn from last series, will bring total quantity to come forward to nearly 110,000 bales, about same as the corresponding series 1867. Well conditioned, staply wools will be scarce as the selection of Australian includes much of the excessively faulty wool, found unsaleable during August. Capes will form the chief feature, and a large proportion again extra scoured. These lately in better demand. The proportion of medium clothing wool will be large.
