CBOT futures closed widely mixed and nearer the day’s lows than the highs, the latter were set Sunday night. CBOT futures gapped higher Sunday evening on hot, dry forecasts through July. However, prices drifted lower overnight and then accelerated downward after the market reopened at 830 a.m. Some reasons for the rally not holding included the surging U.S. Dollar, lower energy futures, U.S. recession risk, new lockdowns in China, and positioning ahead of Tuesday’s USDA WASDE Report. Today’s chart damage is most apparent in wheat futures with significant bearish price reversals.

Cattle futures closed strongly higher after opening this morning in the red due to the sharp CBOT gains. As corn and soybean prices drifted lower, cattle futures trended higher. Technically, cattle posted friendly outside-UP days. The key is to see follow-through buying tomorrow. Choice beef edged up .25 to 268.14 and Select gained 1.15 to 243.00. Beef movement was moderate with 113 loads. Negotiated cash trade was at a standstill today according to USDA. Last week’s cash trade was wide-ranging. Southern Plains @ $137/cwt; Nebraska @ $144-149/cwt live and $232/cwt dressed; Western Cornbelt @ $145-150 live and $232 dressed.

Lean hog futures closed lower after testing Friday’s highs at the top of the recent trading range. LH was pressured by the rising U.S. Dollar (negative exports) and ideas a seasonal cash top may be in or near. FOB Plant Pork rose .40 at 115.07. Movement was a strong 330 loads.
