Allenale Wake Up Call Oct 11

Oct 11, 2013


Good Morning! Paul is out of the office this week, celebrating his 40th anniversary. In place of his usual morning notes, Paul thought it would be a good idea to give our non-subscribers a taste of some of our other reports. Have a great week!

Corn 10/10/13: Once again the day session traders started today by moving in the opposite direction of the overnight trade. There was some early talk about potentially reducing the amount of ethanol produced by the mandate but follow up news was quick to disregard that talk right now.

Lean Hogs 10/10/13: During normal times the trade is able to evaluate cash hogs, cash pork, futures, and slaughter levels in order to gauge how well the market is dealing with various supply changes. In the initial days of the government shutdown the lack of information on three of those four categories was not too much of a problem as there was little new news to digest. Now we are seeing..More Hog Comments

Live Cattle 10/10/13: With bids posted at prices equal with last week’s $126 the trade now expects cash to trade at $127 tomorrow. That was good news, and prices did react today but it is not yet enough to justify…More Cattle Commentary
