The live cattle markets should start out steady to better as traders will want to evaluate this week's showlist. Today an open above $87.35 will be friendly allowing the market to push up to $87.85 with stronger resistance at $88.17. If the market trades back below $87.35 then look for $87.12 to be initial support. Below $87.12 the market could turn bearish dropping to $86.60 fairly quick.

Support: 87.12 & 86.60 Resistance: 87.35 & 87.85

Long Term Trend: Up above 86.90 Short Term Trend: Up above 86.95


Oct feeders are straddling the fence at $99.35. An open below this area could foster light selling down just below $99.00 early. An open above this area keeps the market supportive with the possibility of a rally up to $100.07. A daily close below $99.00 would look a little bearish the market.

Support: 99.30 & 98.95 Resistance: 99.55 & 100.02

Long Term Trend: Up above 98.50 Short Term Trend: Up above 99.00

Hogs: Dec

The Dec hogs are caught in between support of $49.50 and resistance at $50.90. To start the week the market will be supportive above $49.50 and if it is able to break through resistance then could again test last week's highs. The $52.00 area will be good resistance as the market could initially struggle at this level. Below $49.50 the market will be defensive and will likely see selling back down to $47.20.

Support: 50.20 & 49.50 Resistance: 51.20 & 52.05

Long Term Trend: Up above 49.50 Short Term Trend: Up above 50.20
