LIVE CATTLE: Oct

The Oct cattle closed higher again yesterday, as continued hopes of higher cash technical buying kept support underneath. Today dips down to $87.35 should hold. There is a slight chance that if broken a quick dip to $86.95 would be reached before the market recovers. At this time only a daily close below $86.95 would start to look technically bearish. On the upside if the market can get through $87.65 then expect $88.02. A daily close above $88.02 will allow follow through up to $89.00 in the days ahead.

Support: 87.35 & 86.95 Resistance: 87.55 & 88.02

Long Term Trend: Up above 86.80 Short Term Trend: Up above 86.95

FEEDER CATTLE: Oct


Oct feeders close above near term resistance. The market will now have close in support at $99.92. As long as trade stays above this level the next upside target will be $101.27. A break of support will drop the feeders back to $98.87, in which a daily close below this area would be bearish.

Support: 99.92 & 99.40 Resistance: 100.27 & 100.77

Long Term Trend: Up above 98.70 Short Term Trend: Up above 99.27

CORN: Dec


Not much change in to corn market. Although the market has not made new lows it continues to struggle to find significant strength. Today the market is defensive below 311, but a push above this could allow a jump to 316. Below 311 the market could slip back to 305.

Support: 309, 305 & 303 Resistance: 311, 314 & 316

Long Term Trend: Down below 312 Short Term Trend: Down below 320

Hogs: Dec


The hogs are acting well. I still expect the Dec market to get to $51.20 in the near term. Above $49.60 the market is stable keeping rally chances viable. A break of $49.60 could allow the market to slide to $48.60, in which only a daily close below this area would start to turn the market negative.

Support: 49.60 & 48.60 Resistance: 50.37 & 51.00

Long Term Trend: Up above 48.60 Short Term Trend: Up above 48.60
