Pool Price Matrices - 2019 Season

As at 30 August 2019 

The matrices below provide an indication of the potential impact changes in the ICE 11 and AUD/USD exchange rate could have on the QSL-managed pools listed.

These matrices should be read with caution and should not be interpreted as being a forecast by Queensland Sugar Limited. Please see the disclaimer at the end of this page for more details.

The world market price indicator for each pool represents the weighted average market valuation of unpriced sugar, based on our current expectation of the tonnages yet to be priced against particular future delivery months for the pool. The prices for each pool differ due to the different amount tonnages that may be unpriced in each pool respectively.

These gross prices are prior to the allocation from the Shared Pool. The final pool return will be net of the Shared Pool element.
