Chart Analysis

IFC Markets Tech Analysis

On the daily timeframe, FCATTLE: D1 is trying to break out of the long-term neutral trend. It broke through its upper limit for the 2nd time. A number of technical analysis indicators formed signals for further growth. We do not rule out a bullish move if FCATTLE rises above the last high and upper Bollinger band: 144.6. This level can be used as an entry point. We can place a stop loss below the last lower fractal and the Parabolic signal: 132.4. After opening a pending order, we move the stop loss to the next fractal low following the Bollinger and Parabolic signals. Thus, we change the potential profit/loss ratio in our favor. After the transaction, the most risk-averse traders can switch to the four-hour chart and set a stop loss, moving it in the direction of the bias. If the price meets the stop loss (132.4) without activating the order (144.6), it is recommended to delete the order: the market sustains internal changes that have not been taken into account.

Fundamental Analysis

Rising grain prices in the US could raise the price of combined feed in animal breeding. Will the FCATTLE quotes rise?

Soybean prices have soared nearly 60% since the beginning of August last year, reaching a 6-year high. Not only did the price of beef not increase, but it also dropped by 2%. The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) published its "Livestock and Dairy Outlook for 2021" for the meat and dairy market. Despite a slight increase in beef production due to population growth, US beef consumption is expected to decline by 1% to 111 pounds (50.4 kg) in 2021. The main reason for this may be an increase in US beef exports and a decrease in imports from other countries. As of November 2020, US beef imports are down 4% and exports are up 13% on strong demand from China and Mexico. The resumption of lockdowns due to the 2nd wave of coronavirus may lead to the possible rise in beef prices. Last year, the epidemic led American meat processing plants to a standstill.
