Marketline Report for Friday, April 26th
ROGGENSACK ... "We're seeing a major correction, fund long liquidations selling very active the last two days. Cattle On Feed Report late last week showed a steady flow of market-ready cattle into the summer plus this managed money fund trader net long position a record large 152,634 contracts. Beef cutout value is well above last year and well above two years ago. The economy is very strong and improving employment numbers and this is all helping to keep the demand numbers quite strong. With the loss in pork out of China, we could end up with beef demand being very strong and exports may be a benefit."
