Cattle Futures: New Highs Reached, Monday

10 June 2014

US - Futures prices soared, reaching new highs yesterday, reports TheCattleSite analyst Jim Wyckoff.

August live cattle closed up $2.00 at $143.30 Monday. Prices closed near the session high and soared to another contract high.

Sharply higher cash cattle trade late last week and bullish cash market fundamentals continue to push the futures market higher.

The cattle bulls have the strong overall near-term technical advantage. This latest upmove could be the final, “blow-off-top” phase of this very mature bull market run.

Bulls’ next upside price objective is to push and close prices above solid resistance at $145.00. The next downside technical breakout objective for the bears is pushing and closing prices below solid technical support at $140.82.

First resistance is seen at today’s contract high of $143.30 and then at $144.00. First support is seen at $142.50 and then at $142.00. Wyckoff's Market Rating: 9.5

August feeder cattle closed up $2.87 at $203.40 Monday. Prices soared to another fresh contract and record high.

Bulls have the strong overall near-term technical advantage. Prices are in a four-month-old uptrend on the daily bar chart. However, this latest strong push higher in prices could well be the final “blow-off-top” phase of this very mature bull market run, meaning a market top could be coming sooner rather than later.

The next upside price breakout objective for the feeder bulls is to push and close prices above solid technical resistance at $205.00.

The next downside price breakout objective for the bears is to push and close prices below solid technical support at $200.00.

First resistance is seen at today’s contract high of $203.52 and then at $204.00. First support is seen at $203.00 and then at $202.50. Wyckoff's Market Rating: 10.0
