CFTC data showed managed money was 77,960 contracts net long in lean hogs on 4/13. The weekly CoT report shows new buying interest pushed managed money’s net position to the most net long since 11/7 of 2017.

Pork cutout futures closed the Friday session with $0.30 to $2.57 losses. USDA’s National Pork Carcass Cutout Value was reported at $112.09 this afternoon down by $1.28.
