Marketline Report Friday, July 28th
Horwitz ... "Today we're taking a look at live cattle, or fat cattle. And of course, the way we look at it, we think the bottoms are in here. We had the big sell-off down into the 90's, then we had the big rally and we got a little sidewards pattern, and we got a little squeeze. And now, I think, if you look out to October, October fat or October live cattle is now something I think you want to be a buyer of. I think the $112 level or so, anywhere in there, even a little bit lower, is okay. I think, when you look at the Contango pattern that we're now starting to reverse to, we were in Backwardation, which is you remember back in April, we saw that August cattle was trading at $106 when April was trading at $130. Well that pattern is now starting to rotate over to the other side bringing us into a more bullish type of pattern here."
