Livestock Roundup (2.14.18)

Feb 14, 2018

Cattle Commentary:  Cattle futures were relatively quiet again in today’s session.  We wouldn’t be surprised to see that continue in the near term, but at some point, it will break one way or the other.  We continue to feel that the opportunity is o the buy side and would welcome a pull back to get more aggressive (see technical below).  Cash trade has essentially been non-existent this week.  124 was passed on today’s Fed Cattle Exchange which yielded zero sales.  Last week’s trade was 126 live and 200 dressed.  April live cattle finished the day up .725 at 125.50, trading in a range of .90.  March feeder cattle finished the day up 1.075 at 148.35, trading in a range of 1.70 on the session.

Feeder Cattle (March)

 

March feeders held yesterdays lows which is constructive for prices.  The market finished the session in our first resistance pocket from 148.35-148.65.  This pocket represents the recent highs and the 100-day moving…
