NFX Reports Metrics Through July 2019 Trading Events

Starting with the inaugural Natural Fibre Exchange (NFX) trading event in May 2018, 31 trading events have occurred fortnightly through July 2019.

Since the inception of NFX, eight sellers have offered lots, ten buyers have submitted bids, and nine buyers have won lots. Volume sold has totalled 5.4 million nett kg in 1,581 lots.

Per trading event, the number of lots offered has ranged from 27 to 102, with offered nett kg ranging from 82,063 to 378,611 kg (the latter offered most recently in trading event TE-031). Across all trading events, 83 percent of the offered lots and 82 percent of the offered nett kg have sold

The three trading events in July averaged only 52 minutes in duration, reflecting increased familiarization of the NFX platform for buyers as well as ongoing enhancements that improve convenience and time efficiency for participants.

About the Natural Fibre Exchange
Natural Fibre Exchange is an online platform established to connect buyers and sellers, providing trusted and transparent market-based reference prices through effective price discovery, as well as an efficient selling and buying mechanism for wool and other natural fibre products sourced from New Zealand and other supply markets longer term. Other NFX founding principles include enabling a competitive and fair marketplace, with wool sold in an orderly and timely fashion and facilitating efficiencies in the supply chain and bringing down industry costs.

How NFX works
All products in a trading event are on offer simultaneously over multiple rounds of bidding and continuing until there is a round with no new bids. NFX is open to all industry parties and service providers who meet the requirements of the NFX Participation Agreement to be a seller and/or a buyer. As a buyer you also must have pre-approval from a seller to bid on that seller′s products. For more information or to register go to the NFX information site at www.naturalfibreexchange.com.
