The Lean Hogs instrument encountered firm support at the top side of the mid-June/mid-September base formation during Thursday's session. The price is now probing potential resistance from the 200-day Moving Average. We watch to buy in the event of a sustained breakout, currently requiring a move through 66.40, for the upside scope towards the 70 region.
In the Grains sector, Wheat instruments have paused their recovery. In the case of the LIFFE contract resistance is apparently being offered by the 50-day Moving Average, sending the price back under the previous recovery high. This could present 'bull trap' scope back towards the floor near 110. We continue to hold a short trade in the issue.
Also in this grouping, the Soybean Oil contract has generated a bullish P&F Breakout signal on the automated scanner. This follows Thursday's move through 26.8. The Candlestick chart printed here shows the price stabilizing near the oversold August floor. However, a breach of the resistance at 28.3; near the 50-day MA, would be needed to provide further proof of basing.
In Softs, the Orange Juice contract suffered a further slide. However, as pointed out in yesterday's report, acceleration is a trend-ending feature; and the RSI is oversold. The 'thin lower tail' on the last candle indicates that intraday support arrived at the new contract low, 105.95. A fall under that level would counteract the current prospect for some further recovery over the short term.
Also in this grouping, the NYBOT Coffee instrument fell to a new contract low, at 14.55, before staging a small bounce. That action triggered the profitable stop on the short trade, making 2.94%.
In Precious Metals, the Gold issue has renewed the short-term rally towards the late-August high (1169.8). Note that that barrier is reinforced by the presence of the 200-day MA. However, in the event of a breakout, the next important chart target is the June high at 1207.3. A short while ago, this contract was changing hands at 1142.3 in the out of hours session.
The Platinum instrument was also trading down. At 946.6, the price is back under the prior floor around 950, and could be reasserting the downward tendency following yesterday's small bounce. We remain short.
