I’m KayDee Gilkey the Market Line Report for Thursday, May 11th. From the floor of the CME Group here is Todd Horwitz with comments on Wednesday’s fat cattle markets.

Horwitz: “We’re talking about fat cattle here. Of course the first thing we are going to talk about is the squeeze. We had this big squeeze for months where we had April over June — and of course we had a cash squeeze. Cash kept running and mounting over the markets — squeezing the futures, squeezing everybody — forcing the markets to go higher. So when we look at what happens with the cash — now the cash market is starting to collapse or coming in a little bit. Of course that has created some pressure on the fat cattle. I believe they have run too far, too fast.”
