Market Factors

Some factors in the current market situation for wild furs:

1)  Weather: Cold weather in Russia helps improve movement of raccoon garments.

2)  Weather:  Cold weather in China will help move the large volume of mink skins.

3) Copenhagen Auction Results in September:  Steady or increasing mink prices could represent a stabilization in the fur market versus uncertainty if there are downward prices.

4)  China import practices:  How will China adjust to the higher taxes for importing and will China have security in the new methods of clearing goods.

5)  2014 – 2015 Ranch Fur Production:  How will the already saturated fur market consume the coming season’s new production.

6)  Russia – Ukraine:  Will the Russian – Ukrainian standoff cause consumers in these regions to be hesitant to spend money.
