Cattle Commentary:  Cattle futures traded both sides of unchanged, testing significant resistance and support levels within the matter of a few hours.  As mentioned in previous reports this week, we were looking for a pullback, it just happened to take little longer than expected and today was a “do or die” day for decision making.  The market ran stops and cleared the market above our resistance pocket and recent highs which came in from 110.175-110.50.  The inability to feed off of the momentum triggered a round of long liquidation.  The market came back near our trendline support pocket which we had laid out as 106.25-106.35.  Click this link to watch our weekly “2 Minute Drill”. On the fundamental side of things, bids remain near 110-111 with most offers hanging at 115.
