Marketline Report for Thursday, July 11th
McGATHEY ... "Cattle was easier. Cash prices are just not clearly defined yet and the futures breakout was a little bit short-lived as the boxed beef values declined and demand is really slowing. That being said, we're still in that area kind of above some of those big resistance indicators and it's very possible that this is just a slight pull back and we might start to work up again. And, I say that because today in the feeders, they slipped as well but they're just, in the feeders it looks more like a slight correction. And so, if the feeders are really leading the beef complex then that should give us a little bit of tell on the live cattle side."
