Looking ahead to Thursday by reflecting back on Wednesday’s trading

SEE HOW TOPPY THE MEATS COMPLEX LOOKS
MEATS: 12/15/11 Higher for live cattle but lower for the feeder cattle and lean hogs. The charts below show, in my opinion, how toppy the meat complex looks. Cattle has little resistance up to the 12250 area while the feeders also look very weak overall with little support down to the 140 area. There is very good support for the January contract below 140 and heavy resistance above 145 which could help define the feeders trading range for a while. Also, they did rally today to end up near their session’s high. Hogs are near a very critical 8500 area after making their worst close since September 6th and looking like they’re in a BEAR PENNANT. SIGNALS FOR LIVE AND FEEDER CATTLE ALONG WITH LEAN HOGS. CALL FOR DETAILS!
