December Live Cattle struggled on Monday, October 29, 2018. With cash trading as high as 115.00 on Friday, traders were hoping for price to challenge the higher end of the trading range. When it couldn’t trade above the Friday 118.80 high, sellers were able to put pressure on price.  It couldn’t take advantage of Friday’s strong trade in both the …

The month of October is about in the books. The weather has improved and the harvest is rolling along. Today’s progress numbers should confirm that.  The next large fundamental to watch will be the Nov crop report. It is possible to see a further increase in yield. Slight as it may be.

Don’t Try to Find The Bottom, But Try to Buy the Dip

Brendan Sears General Commentary, Stocks Leave a Comment

MACRO BACKDROP: Welcome back, readers. Domestic equities markets have been posting negative closes nearly all month. Losses have appeared broad and wide across nearly all sectors. Selling has been rampant, obviously. In the underlying S& P 500, defensive sectors appear to be the only sectors with gains as scared money may have found a place to hide, in my view. …

Crude Oil Strategy

Peter Ori Energy Leave a Comment

Crude Oil fundamentals are pointing lower in my opinion, the Hurricane season is close to ending. Gulf platforms are back online, shale production remains strong, and data from the EIA per yesterday’s gov’t data is showing strong builds of crude oil. Also providing stability to the oil outlook in my view is both OPEC and non OPEC areas possibly promising …

Sean Lusk General Commentary Leave a Comment

It was getting ugly in the wheat complex with spec longs among others getting run out well below 5.00 amid yesterday’s rout. Both KC and Chicago contracts were staring at the 4.60 level should we have fallen hard below the last bastions of key support at 4.87 (Chicago) and 4.82 (KC). We have been bemoaning the lack of demand for …

AG TIME – Crush it All

John Walsh Grains Leave a Comment

The markets are rebounding today led by meal. It is my belief we are potentially on the verge of a large shift in the oilseeds in general. The slow down in Chinese imports is a large story. The ramifications larger. The demand growth for beans and consequentially meal has been unprecedented year after year. This is stalled. Actually predicted to …
