Live cattle futures continue to shock the world, rallying off last week’s lows despite weaker cash market trades. The market is now approaching trendline resistance, we have defined this pocket as 113.90-114.025. The Bears MUST defend this pocket. A break and close above here could spark a wave of enthusiasm.
