The LFEX Norwegian Exporters Index for Week 27 2023 was up + 3.18%, +3.06 NOK to stand at 99.24 NOK FCA Oslo Week ending Thursday vs previous Thursday.

The NOK rate was down at 11.64 to the Euro over the period Thursday to Thursday -0.11 NOK or -0.94%. The Fish Pool future July was reported higher at 88.7 NOK up +0.7 NOK or +0.80%.

The index price opened lower last Friday at 94.08 NOK -2.1 from the previous week partly accounted for by cheaper smaller sized fish. 5/6s went up as expected and the spread between 3/4s and 5/6 gapped to 18.46 NOK reflecting volumes and demand. Average prices nudged up Monday driven by larger fish (106.24), although 3/4s were further down at 82.77, with the spread further widening to 23.46 NOK. The index moved up each day Tue/Wed/Thu 95.71, 97.70 and 99.24. Although the 5/6s peaked on Wednesday at 111.06 NOK before coming down to 108 on Thursday – and it was the smaller fish that rallied which brought the index up. The spread still large but less at 19. As a comparison volume in week 26 was 17,238, the same week in 2022 was lower 16,407, with higher average prices in 2022 (98 NOK vs 91.5 NOK). Next week is a bit of a guess and will be volume dependent. It could be that Q3 saw some contracts start reducing spot availability which helped prices up last week. No initial expectation of a lot more volume however.

David Nye’s technical analysis report will be published on Monday.
