In a light trading session February Live Cattle continued its break out to the upside, trading to a new high at 122.55 just below resistance at 122.825. Continued upward pressure could see price test resistance at 124.30. A pullback from the high could see price fall back into the 121.625 – 118.575 trading range. January Feeder Cattle continued its recovery after yesterday’s new low and test of the 143.50 support level. It treaded past resistance at 145.05 today, making the high at 145.675. The next test is the 146.20 resistance level and then the 200 DMA at 147.60. Support is at 144.20 and then 143.50. February Lean Hogs tested support at the 200 DMA (65.175) early in the trading session, making the low at 65.125. A strong bounce took price past resistance at 67.80 to the session high at 68.10. It settled right at resistance (67.75) and could be the key level for trade on Thursday. A break out above here could see price test the Monday high at 68.825. Resistance then comes in at the November 20 high at 69.50 and then 70.125. A pullback has support at 66.55 and then the 200 DMA.
