Cattle Commentary: Cattle futures tried to roll over mid-morning, but the bears could not break through our technical support pocket which we have defined as 107.55-107.775 in previous reports (see full technical breakdown below). New news was hard to come by today, early bids at 110 continue to be ignored with offers resting at 115 as we head into the back half of the week. This would lead us to believe steady cash is in the cards. The only action in today’s Fed Cattle Exchange was at 111, which was eventually passed on; there were 0/1,249 head sold. We continue to welcome a pull back, for clients who want to play the short side, we are using the December and October contract.

Lean Hog Commentary and Technicals (August)
August lean hogs finished positive!!!! For the first time in two weeks, August lean hogs finished green, finishing the day up .675 at 66.225, trading in a range of 1.175. The positive close is a sigh of relief for the bulls but is a pathetic print after an enormous wave of selling. We have been very happy watching this from the sidelines, we may start fishing to the buy side. If you want to be long this market, consider using call options, a tool that gives you great exposure with limited risk.
