The US exchange rate has stayed steady at round 89 to just over 90¢ this week, after a more volatile period last week.

The market opened on a good note on Wednesday with the EMI up by 4¢ in US currency on Wednesday, but easing by the same amount on Thursday. It was a week in which the Superfine sellers had a better week, with gains of 3.0% plus in the average 17.0 and 17.5 AWEX Micron Price Guides (MPGs). The gains eased with the broader microns, with small falls in the Average MPGs from 20 to 23 microns.

Demand for skirting types was very keen on Wednesday, particularly in the North and the South. The gains were generally maintained on Thursday.
