always short lived when the 60 minute close doesn't give me positive feelings. Even more so when thinking about holding a position over the weekend and the Damage Monday's open can throw at me. I didn't intend to grab my short June cattle leg until they were in the 118.00 range but the opportunity to deal with weekend anxiety with a $40 spread for my cattle/hog spread-----I decided to manage my weekend risk better and grabbed a short June cattle @ 117.10.
I really had my eye on a $42 spread but knowing my courage doesn't last long, I took what appeared to be the easy way out to deal with the weekend anxiety. I may feel differently by the close but for now I made the right choice.
