Updated 6/24/22

Tuesday June 21st:

  • Cattle Trade - Buyers are showing strong interest in buying calves early. Lower numbers will incite more competition among feeder buyers. Contact us if you are looking to get calves sold!
  • Corn - $7.30 is an important level to maintain for both sides. This could create some choppy action around this level. Feels top heavy to me, be prepared for another breakdown. I expect corn production to be strong but worldwide demand is anticipated to be strong as well.
  • Feeder Futures - Be prepared for the $172-$178 (Sep) & $174-$180 (Oct) range to stay intact. Bulls could get a win by posting some bids in the 180s to start the new uptrend.
  • Live Futures - Bulls can keep the momentum going above last weeks highs $152.75/155.75 (Feb/Apr). Anticipating more upside but bulls could reload on a dip. Support remains at last weeks level of $151/$154 Feb/Apr.
