The July Lean Hogs contract continued its breakdown on Tuesday, May 28, 2019. It blew past support at the 85.375 level making the session low at 84.325. It recovered and settled just above support at 85.70. This is a new low for the down move. If support holds, consolidation within the Tuesday range is likely. A breakdown below the low could see price test support at the 83.325 level. The Lean Hog Index is at 84.02 as of May 23rd and the pork cutout index dipped to 84.89 as of May 24th.
