Market Closes - November 11, 2015

Posted on Nov 12, 2015
CBOT futures closed slightly higher, recovering from yesterday’s losses resulting from the bearish USDA reports. There wasn’t any real news driving the market today. Price ranges were fairly narrow except for December OATS.

Cattle futures closed sharply higher with some contracts up the daily limit. It wasn’t surprising to see this short-covering (profit-taking) rally given the extended sharp selloff that’s been occurring. Futures and the beef market aren’t in sync as Choice dropped 1.76 to 214.81; Select down 2.75 at 204.19. Price volatility isn’t likely to subside.

Lean Hog futures also closed strongly higher on spillover support from cattle futures and the LH market’s “oversold” condition. The cash markets continue to weaken. FOB Plant Pork dropped .66 to 74.85 (was up .20 at midday).
