All of these technical levels have been calculated from both volume-based continuation and contract specific weekly bar charts.
Live Cattle (AUG): the 109.72 -110.20 can absorb selling through July (assuming we open Monday above this important support region), above which 123.87 is attainable within 3-5 weeks where the August contract can top out into expiration, and the broader complex into later year. Overall, the ultra-long-term dynamic remains heavy through 2016 while trading below 123.87-125.30, the 100.95 region remaining a 5-8 month target. With that said, a weekly settlement Friday below 109.72 should yield the targeted 100.95 within 5-8 weeks.
Lean Hogs (AUG): The 85.42 level can contain selling into July, above which the 91.60-92.55 region remains a 2-3 week target able to contain buying into contract expiration. A weekly settlement above 92.55 maintains a decidedly bullish dynamic into later contract life, 102.55 then expected by August expiration. Downside, a weekly settlement below 85.42 indicates a good contract high, 77.27 then anticipated over the following 3-5 weeks.
Corn (JUL): The 419.25 level can contain weekly selling pressures, above which long-term resistance at 448.00 remains a 2-3 week target able to contain strength through summer trade.

Soybeans (NOV): The 1067.25 – 1080.75 region can absorb selling through summer trade, above which 1316.50 remains a 5-8 week target, 1417.00 expected within 3-5 months. On the other hand, a weekly settlement below 1067.25 indicates a good high through July, 998.50 then becoming a 2-3 week target able to contain selling into August trade and the level to settle below for indicating a good 2016 high. Upside this week, 1205.00 can contain weekly buying pressures, with a settlement above 1205.00 indicating the targeted 1316.50 within 2-3 weeks, able to contain strength through July trade.

On the other hand, a weekly settlement Friday below 44.72 would be considered a failed long-term buy signal, essentially a valid sign of weakness into later year, then expecting 35.84 within 3-5 weeks, last February’s 26.05 below attainable again within 3-5 months.
SP-500 E-Mini (SEP): The 2023.75 level can contain selling through July activity, once tested 2125.50 attainable within 3-5 weeks, higher trade expected into later Q3.
