This is Bob Larson with the Market Line Report for Friday May 5th. Mixed results in the cattle market Thursday continues a sting of upside trading. With more from the floor of the CME in Chicago, here’s Joe Vaclavik …

Vaclavik … “The live cattle market was mixed on Thursday. We’ve had an enormous amount of volatility this week. A limit up-trade for a couple of days in a row. As a matter of fact, I think we’ve seen higher closes in 19 of the last 21 trading sessions which is really just a phenomenal run here. So, a lot of volatility. We did see the market spike up into some new highs this morning. We then saw the market set back a little bit. So, maybe the markets just become exhausted here after what’s been a phenomenal bull run.”
