Financials: June Bonds are currently 19 lower at 143'28 and the 10 Yr. Notes 8 lower at 132'21. The market may be topping out. At least it now has a level of resistance at yesterday's highs of 145'08 in the Bonds and 133'08.5 in the 10 Yr. Notes. We remain short in the money call spreads. I am now willing to trade from the short side with protective buy stops just above yesterday's highs.
Grains: This mornings Supply/Demand Report showed the following: U.S. carryout for Beans 0.145 billion bushels vs. pre report estimates of 0.170 billion bushels. Corn 1.881 BB vs. 1.704BB. Wheat 0.735BB vs. 0.805BB. World carryover showed similar results. Less Beans and more Corn than expected. The early calls are 30 cents higher in beans and 5-10 cents lower in corn. I am on the sidelines coming in this morning. I will be looking for July Corrn to support in the 580'0 area.
Cattle: June LC are currently 50 higher at 117.10 and May FC 35 higher at 151.00. If you remain long either take profits or raise your sell stops to 50 points below the market.
