Live Cattle (February)
February live cattle finished today’s session under minor pressure with trading volume relatively thin. The trend has been sideways to slightly higher for the last two months and quite frankly has been a boring trade. We expect to see ranges expand as we get into 2020 and participation picks back up. Due to Christmas last week, the weekly Commitment of Traders report was delayed today, it showed funds holding a net long position of 86,458 contracts, little changed from the previous week.

Feeder Cattle (January)
January feeder cattle finished today’s session little changed, trading in a relatively tight range of .875.

A failure at resistance and break below support would market another round of lower highs and lower lows, which could trigger....Sign up for your FREE two-week trial!

February lean hogs managed to print and close at their highest price in a month and a half. The chart continues to look constructive and today’s higher leg could be the start of a bigger move. The 100-day moving average comes in at 72.075, a close above here could spark a run towards significant resistance and our objective of 73.95-74.35. This pocket represents a key retracement and the breakdown point from the first half of November. On the support side of things, the bulls need to continue to defend....Sign up for your FREE two-week trial!
