The cattle complex was under pressure through most of the sessions. The market is bearish this morning below $87.80 with dips reaching down to $87.02 likely. If trade reaches back above $87.85 then follow through buying could take the market back to $88.30. A reversing close above this area would take the bearishness out of the market.

Long Term Trend: Down Below 87.72 Short Term Trend: Down below 88.30

On the downside below $99.60 the market slips to $99.10, which should be good support for today.

Support: 326, 324 & 321 Resistance: 328, 333 & 337
