Live Cattle (February)
February live cattle broke lower on the first trading day of the year, erasing weeks of work from the Bull camp. First support was broken easily, which triggered a wave of selling to our next pocket, 112.125-112.70. A break and close below this pocket could extend the retracement back to the December 8th lows, 110.55-111.00. Previous support will now act as first resistance, 113.90-114.025.
Resistance: 113.90-114.025***, 116.25-116.60***
Feeder Cattle (March)
January feeder cattle rolled out of bed, which we were looking for in the past several weeks, apparently, they just took notice of the corn rally. 134.65 held on a closing basis, a break and close below here opens the door for another whoosh lower, with some minor support near 133, but the more significant support does not come in until 130.00-130.70.
Resistance: 140.70141.225****, 143.475****
Support: 134.65**, 133.00***, 130.00-130.70***
Lean Hogs (February)
February lean hogs rallied to our 4-star resistance pocket and ran into a brick wall, we had that defined in the previous reports as 72.00-72.60. Our pivot pocket comes in from 70.35-70.675. A break and close below here could trigger some brief consolidation, but we remain upbeat on prices over an extended time frame.
Resistance: 72.00-72.60****, 77.00**
Support: 68.00-68.50***, 62.7-63.70****, 58.25-59.65**
