Dennis Smith from Archer Financial Services., Upside Breakout in December Lean Hogs? October 17th 2017

Upside Breakout in December Lean Hogs?   Follow me on Twitter @denniscattle   Tuesday October 17, 2017   LEAN HOGS I can’t find anything fancy to report in hogs after they staged a possible upside break out yesterday.

Dennis Smith from Archer Financial Services, Relief Rally in Hogs a Hedging Opportunity, October 5 2017

LEAN HOGS It appears to be a quiet morning regarding news that may impact livestock trading. Compared to Tuesday’s super high volume rally affair, yesterday’s rally in hogs occurred on light volume reported at only 37,900 cars. Open interest increased by 634 with open interest declining by just over 2,000 in the soon to expire

Dennis Smith from Archer Financial Services, New Record Slaughter Number, September 26 2017

LEAN HOGS Lean hogs staged outside day higher settlements yesterday in the first three contracts. Such a chart pattern may not want to be ignored. Certainly the supply side fundamentals remain/appear as bearish as ever. Yesterday’s kill was a new record at 460,000. Wow that’s scary but its confirmation of expanded capacity. There won’t be

Dennis Smith of Archer Financial Services, Daily Volume Surges Higher in Feeders, September 21 2017

  LEAN HOGS Cash will be called lower today because packers will continue to throttle the cash in an uncompetitive environment until it no longer works. My assumption is that eventually numbers will drop off in some kind of hole? Or perhaps a bullish surprise will surface in the hog & pig report? Or possibly

    LEAN HOGS Monthly cold storage comes out Friday afternoon at 2:00. It likely will show a very small belly frozen stock figure. Since Sep 1st, however, we believe bellies have been placed into the freezer at breakneck speed. Eventually, despite record large production, this activity will force a bottom in the fresh belly

Dennis Smith from Archer Financial Services, Pork Commentary, September 14 2017

Follow me on Twitter @denniscattle LEAN HOGS Today is the last day of the Goldman Roll. Yesterday the Oct/Dec hog spread appeared to bottom. This occurred despite the fact that cash hog prices continue to decline with additional pressure expected again today. Lean hog futures are sharply discount. In the face of huge, in fact
