August Feeder Cattle:
Buying on a hold of strong support and a test of the 50% retracement. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicator is also showing the market to be oversold at this point.
August Feeder Cattle has found a strong support level of 150.25. This is also a 50% retracement of the low of 136.00 in September and the high of 164.40 in mid-March. I look for a bit of retracement to get long this market through the remainder of the summer.
I look to get involved at this level of old resistance and now new support.
BUYING the August Feeder Cattle contract at 150.25 on a limit (Good Til Cancelled) …last trade 151.20

For those who prefer option trades:
Consider buying the August Feeder Cattle 158.00 call with 145 days until expiration for roughly 200 points or $1,000.00.
Risk would be the cost of the option plus fees
