Livestock Roundup

Live Cattle (June)

June live cattle made new contract highs yesterday which opens the door for another wave higher. How high? TBD. We look at previous interactions between buyers and sellers to find support and resistance levels. With prices at new highs, there is no previous interaction to go off, so it becomes a momentum and money flow trade. Previous resistance now becomes support, that comes in from 123.00-123.50. The Bulls want to defend this going forward to keep the momentum in their court. A failure to defend it would not mean that the top is in, it would just start to neutralize the short-term technical outlook. Asking prices to have jumped to 122 to start the week.


Support: 123.00-123.50***, 119.00-119.525**, 116.425-116.80***

Feeder Cattle (May)

May feeder cattle managed to get out above technical resistance which bodes well for the technical landscape. Grains are firm in the overnight, which may put a little headwind in the market, but we would not expect anything significant.

Resistance: 153.175-153.475**

Pivot: 151.275

Support: 149.475-149.60**, 147.35**

Lean Hogs (June)

June lean hogs made new contract highs and reversed off the highs to finish in negative territory. We have been spectators for the last push higher but are starting to look at various options strategies to the short side for some clients who want to wade into those waters.

Resistance: 106.725-107.40**

Support: 103.00-103.875***
