Cattle and Hog markets continue to trade within their trading ranges. Cattle markets traded back to the middle of their trading ranges while Hogs made a new high then fell back into its range. January Feeder Cattle held its 200 DMA (147.70) and bounced. It traded up to resistance at 149.975, making the high just above it at 150.40 and it settled at 150.125. A rally above settlement could take price to the upper end of the 152.425 – 147.575 trading range. Failure from settlement, you know the drill…. Back down towards the 200 DMA and the lower end of the trading range. Live Cattle traded down to support at 116.55, making the low at 116.70 and traded up to resistance at 117.725, which was the high for the day. It settled at 116.95. A failure from here could see price test support at 114.65. If settlement holds price could move towards resistance at 117.725 and the 118.425. December Hogs took out the October 1st high at 59.95, reaching 60.20 for the session high. It failed from here and traded to the low at 58.20. It settled near the low at 58.45. A break out above resistance could see price move toward resistance at 61.80. A break down from the low could see price test support at 57.025.
