Cattle Commentary: A lack of new news led cattle futures to trad in a relatively tight range today, chopping around narrowly on both sides of unchanged. Some market participants may be sitting on their hands or tying up loose ends ahead of tomorrow’s Cattle on Feed report. Estimates for on feed range from 102.7-105.8, the average being 104.1. Placement estimates range from 95.5-106.6, the average being 101.3. Marketings range from 98.6-106.7, the average being 100.8. Cash trade this week has been fairly mute, we did get some 112 on the FCE (Fed Cattle Exchange) yesterday, with another pen at 111 passed on. On the technical side of things, the market is not in overbought territory but is towards the high end of the years RSI range. See the rest of the technicals by clicking the link below!
