After the close Friday the USDA will release the All Important Quarterly All Hogs and Pig Crop Report.
A majority of Traders are expecting a neutral to bullish report. Expecting little change from a year ago in the USDA's report for: all hogs, marketing's and kept for breeding figures, according to a Dow Jones Newswires' survey of analysts.
However considering the recent action , it appears traders are more bullish than neutral....and personally I would not mind seeing a report that is in line with expectations but causes a bit of a sell off that we would construe as a buying chance..
These quarterly reports can contain surprises that could cause the Pork markets to move up or down limit
With Monday being: a short day , before a holiday and the end of the year / end of the month,
we prefer to keep positions rather light going into the report.
As of now FuturesCom has no open recommended Hog positions and is short a small number of Feb Bellies
for our premier service from Thursday..
Stay tuned for Updates during the trading session on Friday.
FuturesCom's estimates as a percentage VS. Last year for the USDA Report :
All hogs and Pigs 101.0
Kept for Breeding 100.0
Kept for marketing 101
The Street has it this way according to a Dow Jones Newswire survey :
All hogs and pigs on Dec 1 99.9 98.9-101.0
Kept for breeding 99.3 98.5-101.5
Kept for marketing 100.1 99.0-101.0
Happy Trading !
