Market Updates

We are pleased to introduce our new Weekly Market Update.  Rather than focus on our larger, more in-depth market reports, we have decided to concentrate on bringing you more timely commentary on a more regular basis via these refreshingly short, one page documents. As ever, you can respond to this email or call any member of the Atlas Team with questions or comments. 


 

A Tale of Two Vintages?

The Liv-ex Fine Wine 50 finished the week on 340.20 so no real change there. Indeed, it feels like a slow run-up to the next en primeur campaign, with UK merchants lining up their visits to Bordeaux for early April. Discussion  has, in fact, turned to two Bordeaux vintages, namely 2014 and 2016.

Bordeaux no longer has the monopoly on liquidity

The monthly close for the major Liv-ex Indices [Fig.1] shows modest growth across the piece in January.  It would appear that Bordeaux trade has held up well despite the UK trade’s focus being almost exclusively devoted to Burgundy 2015 en primeur.

major Bordeaux-driven Liv-ex Indices [Fig 1 and Fig 2]. Such seasonal calm is not uncommon and, perhaps given value growth in Sterling Year-to-Date, it is necessary for the market to pause for reflection.

The Truth in the Numbers

The major Liv-ex indices inched ahead in November, with all of those featured now showing
over 20% increases Year-to-Date [Fig 1]. What is most noteworthy is the fact that the Liv-ex 100 has risen for 12 consecutive months and now stands at its highest level for five years.
