Technical Snapshot
Lean Hogs
October lean hog futures gave back gains from the previous day's session after failing to get out above the 50 and 100 day moving averages. The pullback was disappointing for the Bulls, but it didn't do much in terms of changing the technical landscape. We know that the gap from July 6th remains open with the spring lows coming in below that. We like leaning on the bullish side of things so long as those support levels can hold. We've mentioned the bullish seasonal play in recent reports, that is for the June contract, which fared much better in yesterday's session.
