Market Closes - November 28, 2012

Posted on Nov 28, 2012
  CBOT futures closed about where they were at midday.  The news today was minimal and balanced with bearish outside markets with energy and precious metals lower.

  CME Cattle futures were lower again today, further correcting some of last week’s large gains. Choice UP 0.39 at 195.73; Select UP 0.93 at 175.73; the Choice-Select price spread has narrowed this week, now at $20.00/cwt.

  Lean Hog futures closed sharply higher as bullish momentum carries the market. The December contract closed above the April high, so the next resistance may be $86.00, but cash continues to lag the run in futures. The Pork Cutout jumped again today, gaining 74 cents to $84.71/cwt, up $3.00 from a week ago.

  US equities closed at the day’s highs after traders became optimistic that a “fiscal cliff” deal will be made.
