Cattle Commentary:  Cattle futures rolled over hard today on the back of a technical breakdown (see our full technical analysis below).  We often say that volatility invites volatility, we expect to see that hold true again this week as market participants brace for the potential impacts of this week’s elections.  Trade with China has worked its way back into talking points, we are not putting much weight into that at this point in time.  The bulk of cash trade last week came in near 115.  The market is not concerned with what we traded last week, hence the name “futures”.
