I said "Bracket line is now support; weekly numbers give me the resistances.  Gaps and uptrend line (green) are longer term supports". Bulls are in control above the line.

 Notice how I use the open outcry chart to locate gaps, but I do my numbers for the electronic market as always. Open outcry is where I find the major players doing business. 

In my daily numbers on Thursday; my pivot acted as resistance and was .30 from the actual high, my support was .30 from the actual low.    

April Cattle (elec.) for 2/12/10: 

Cattle: Helpful numbers. Same thoughts as yesterday and I want to take the trade idea to sell.

April Cattle (elec.) for 2/11/10: 

Cattle: Spot on numbers. Chart is bullish and taking a breather to generate enough energy to push higher. Charts like this like to back and fill and that means to test the bracket line (but hold it), but this one has been on both sides and takes away from the bullish performance. Only positive is that it has managed to close above the line the last 2 days.

I am skeptical of this chart from here, but I would not risk much if I take the sell against 92.25 using a buy stop at 92.42 to protect. This market might be going much higher, the sell is for a day trade because it is extremely overbought and made a bracket line to bracket line move in just 5 days.

USDA updated on Tuesday its monthly supply and demand estimates and overall the release contained few surprises.

April Cattle (elec.) for 2/10/10: 

Cattle: Accurate numbers. My trade idea would have been stopped out for a small loss. Bulls need to hold that bracket line that will surely be tested even if they want to go higher (most of the time in a day or two after being violated). Chart is bullish now though. Close below that line would be considered a failure and more corrective action should follow.

April Cattle (elec.) for 2/9/10: 

Cattle: Helpful numbers at best. Bulls are trying to cheerlead the market through the bracket line resistance but since it is in extremely overbought condition it will be harder to do so. I would try and sell near the bracket risking little with a buy stop just above to protect. (A bracket line trade)

April Cattle (elec.) for 2/8/10: 

Cattle: Spot on support and resistance was off .40. Since 1/13/10 we had 3 bracket line to bracket line moves in this market. Patience to wait for these trades pays off. What took 3 weeks might have taken 3 months in another market, and sometimes we do not see this at all.  Now you can again see the value of bracket to bracket trading. When wrong you lose little, when right you can really be rewarded. When you lose .50 to 1.00 when wrong and you make 2.00 to 4.00 when right, you become a casino. Think about it, if you are wrong 2 out of 3 times you lose 1.50 to 3.00 on the 2 times wrong, and made 2.00 to 4.00 when right the one time, and are profitable being wrong 2 of 3 trades. But when right 2 out of 3 trades, you lose .50 to 1.00 on the loser, 4.00 to 8.00 on the two that worked. When wrong you make money, and when right you get paid handsomely. Money management coupled with risk reward is a big part of successful trading.

April Cattle (elec.) for 2/5/10: 

Cattle: Accurate numbers. Bulls have struggled but are managing to test strong resistance; I would look to sell resistance with a buy stop just above the gap to protect.
