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. 


Learning Lessons

The Liv-ex Fine Wine 50 has pushed on once more beyond the September monthly close [Fig 1] and now currently stands at 330, indicating that trading in Bordeaux First Growth remains strong as we progress through the final quarter of 2016. 

Here and in other reports, there has been much commentary relating to the currency influence on the fine wine market.  It should be stressed that this is n...

A Changing Market

The Liv-ex 50 reported another strong week now standing at 327.68 ahead of the September monthly close  [Fig 1].  Clearly the weaker Sterling is continuing to exert an influence and Bordeaux seems to be a major beneficiary. Indeed, there seems to be a lot of good news surrounding Bordeaux currently with early indications suggesting a positive 2016 harvest is underway in terms of both quality and quantity...

Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose….

September continues to be characterised by a higher than normal volume of
trade. While the Liv-ex 50 (First Growths) has not pushed ahead of the monthly
close, currently standing at 317.38, it was widely expected that the move in prices
would have to settle down [Fig 1]. After all, just under 20% growth in value in nine
months is quite remarkable.he most encouraging aspect is that, while vo...
