Market Closes - November 28, 2016

Posted on Nov 28, 2016

CBOT futures closed mixed with corn and wheat closing near the day’s lows. Corn traded higher Sunday evening in sympathy with a strong soybean complex rally. Soybean meal was the strongest market, but soybean futures backed down from weakness in soybean oil. Soybean futures have closed higher for 7 straight trading days. January Soybean is over a dollar/bushel higher than its October low. Corn futures traded wide “outside day” ranges and closed lower, which is a negative chart signal. MGEX Wheat outperformed KC and Chicago due to relatively stronger export demand.

Cattle futures closed mostly lower, pressured by profit-taking following last Friday’s strong price action where futures “gapped higher”. Last week’s cash cattle averaged $111.05/cwt, but some late sales went reportedly $113-115 in the South.  Choice beef closed up .36 at 188.00 and Select gained 1.45 to 172.75. Feeder Cattle futures didn’t drop as much as Live Cattle and the FC charts maintained their upward gaps.

Lean Hog futures rallied for less than an hour after opening at 830 am CT, then weakened and sold off sharply in the final 15 minutes of trading. Technically, this price action charted bearish key reversals. The sell-off occurred despite a very strong midday pork market. At midday, FOB Plant Pork was up a huge 3.57/cwt to 77.60.  However, FOB Plant closed only .78 higher at 74.81.
