LIVE CATTLE: Oct

The live cattle saw a small bounce yesterday. Today above $85.45 the market has the possibility of bouncing to $86.30, which should stall rallies for the week. Below $85.20 the market will turn slightly bearish dipping down to $84.70. A close below this area of support would allow continuation to $83.90 before weeks end.

Support: 85.20 & 84.70 Resistance: 85.47 & 86.30

Long Term Trend: Down below 86.50 Short Term Trend: Down below 85.47

FEEDER CATTLE: Oct


Feeder cattle are holding in an area of prior lows from the first of September and back in mid June. This is a critical area of support for the complex. A solid daily close below this area could signal that a high is in place for the remainder of the year. Today $96.55 should be decent support. If trade pushes back above the $97.00 price then a larger correction back to $98.30 is going to be possible. Closing below $96.55 and especially $96.10 will extend the feeder decline down to $95.30.

Support: 96.55 & 96.10 Resistance: 97.00 & 97.47

Long Term Trend: Down below 98.27 Short Term Trend: Down below 97.00

CORN: Dec


Not much change across the corn complex for today. The market may be trying to consolidate between 327 and 318 over the next few days. A close outside of either of these ranges will signal the next direction. Today's action above 324 would be slightly friendly up to 330, below 320 the market fades back to 314.

Support: 322, 320 & 314 Resistance: 323, 324 & 330

Long Term Trend: Up above 322 Short Term Trend: Down below 326

Hogs: Dec


The close below $49.10 yesterday rolls the market back to bearish trade. Rallies that fail to push back above this area will most likely attract secondary selling down to $46.00 area over the next few days. A reversal and close back above this area would be bullish for extended rallies back into the $56.00 area.

Support: 48.77 & 47.95 Resistance: 49.10 & 49.90

Long Term Trend: Down below 51.00 Short Term Trend: Down below 50.30
