Where Are Cattle Prices Going ?

Bookmark and Share

Live Cattle Futures---Cattle futures in the December contract are unchanged at 116.80 this Tuesday afternoon in Chicago as I am not involved in this market as I was looking at a possible bullish position but this market remains choppy as I will sit on the sidelines & wait for better chart structure to develop.

If you are short a futures contract my recommendation would be to place your stop loss or exit strategy at about the 119.17 level and if your long a futures contract I would place my stop loss below 114.65 as this market remains choppy despite the fact that we are right near a 10 week high.

Cattle prices are still trading above their 20 and 100 day moving average telling you that the shorter-term trend is to the upside as major major resistance is between 118/119 as we need some fresh fundamental news to push prices in either direction in my opinion as the agricultural sector continues to be stagnant over the last several weeks across the board.

Volatility in cattle is relatively low at the present time as hog prices also rallied over the last several weeks helping support cattle, however for the true breakout to occur prices need to bust 119.17 in my opinion for the bullish momentum to accelerate.TREND: HIGHER---CHART STRUCTURE: IMPROVING
