Trading Cattle and Hogs 101

Discussion in 'Commodity Futures' started by trainee2006, Jan 10, 2008.

  1. Dear all:

    According to the textbooks, this is supposed to be a bullish season for cattle and hogs but all I see is a downward trend. Why is this happening. People are NOT eating less meat (Thank God!)

    - I thought seasonality was supposed to be strong in meats?

    - Can I get some recommendations on commentators, websites, newsletters, books, who are worth reading about meats?


  2. they are killing a tremendous amount of pigs right now, expect to see pigs go lower. For cattle there are several reasons, there is a lot of bear spreading going on, buying aug selling april etc etc and there is not alot of cash and confidence. Feed costs are sky high as well
