Looking Ahead to Today By Reflecting back at Monday’s price action


Higher close yesterday for live and feeder cattle, unchanged to higher for lean hogs while lower for pork bellies. The live and feeder cattle both gave me buy signals after today’s action while lean hogs made a new low close. Bellies made a new contract low and close. I remain bullish on Cattle and would like to share my specific buy signals.
