Financials: Dec. Bonds are currently 17 lower at 152’13, 10 Yr. Notes 5 lower at 125’09 and 5 Yr. Notes 0’01.7 lower at 117’15.7. Bonds broke nearly 2’00+ over the last couple of sessions in response to Fed comment “that it would be imprudent to wait for inflation to reach 2.0% to raise rates”. This could confirm a rate hike by the Dec. FOMC meeting. After recommending covering short positions last week I now feel we are in support at 151’25 for the Bonds and 124’30 in the 10 Yr. Notes. I will be a buyer on breaks for short term trades (1-3 days) with protective sell stops 12 points below the stated levels.
Grains: Dec. Corn is currently 1’2 lower at 352’6, Nov. Beans 6’0 lower at 659’4 and Dec. Wheat 2’0 lower at 459’4. The prevailing trend remains sideways to down. I remain on the sidelines, not finding a reason to be involved at the moment.
Cattle: Live and Feeder Cattle have had a fractious week, closing sharply lower to limit down early in the week as a result of a large placement number on last Friday’s Cattle on Feed Report. LC and FC have since rallied back about 50%. Late last week Oct. LC traded above 111.70 (see last week’s report) prompting us to raise our sell stop to 110.30 of which was executed early in the week taking us out of net long positions. We are going to bite the bullet and take the loss on long Oct./short Feb. spreads before first notice day for Oct. LC.
Silver: Dec. Silver is currently up 2 cents at 16.85, down 1 cents since last Thur. Report. A strong Dollar as a result of rising interest rates has kept pressure on the market pushing it down to a low of 16.705. I feel this market is showing resilience by closing above the 16.80 level. I am long from the 17.28 area.
S&P’s: Dec. S&P’s are currently 4.50 lower at 2500.00. I am currently on the sidelines.
Currencies: As of this writing the Dec. Euro is currently 17 higher 118.17, the Yen 9 higher at 0.89135, the Pound 19 higher at 1.3457 and the Dollar Index 5 lower at 93.121. Over the last week the Pound gave ample opportunity to go short above 1.3600. If you remain short either take profits or use a buy stop at 1.3515.
