Cattle Commentary: Risk off in the ag sector was the theme today with pressure continuing in the grain and livestock markets. There were talks of a light cash trade at 110 this morning which likely led to that midday selloff. First significant support from 102.20-102.40 gave way which opened the door for a run at our next level from 100.80-101.225. That pull back provided what we felt was a great opportunity to start dipping the toes back into the market. We still feel confident that we could see cash work higher into the weekend, and if we dont get cash before the close shorts may want to cover into the weekend. We do expect to hear more definitive statements surrounding trade with China over the next 24 hours which could lead to retaliatory actions over the weekend.
