The pig consumption season is coming to an end, and the price is becoming more difficult |

Original title: The pig consumption season is coming to a close

1. Market review

The hog futures were basically in line with market expectations in the first month of listing. The volatility fell below 25,000, and then the volatility rebounded. The spot price was once firm and upward. Due to the peak season of terminal demand, the early hog prices gradually increased, and the consumer terminal gradually decreased as the weather warmed. With the demand for high-priced meat, the southern curing season is almost over. The sales of white strips in slaughterhouses have slowed down, and even losses have occurred, which has lowered the price of upstream pigs. On the other hand, in the initial stage of listing, the price of live pig futures fell successively. Market investors’ expectations for the long-term month became consistent. Spot premiums continued to increase, making it more difficult for spot prices to rise. When the price fell to the 25,000 yuan/ton mark, a short cycle The moving averages have begun to stick together, and the market’s long and short forces have tended to be balanced. It is expected that the live pig futures will likely show a trend of shock adjustment in the short term.

Terminal demand was still more sensitive to price marginal reactions during peak seasons, and consumption of substitutes also improved. Beef and mutton prices also gradually climbed. The sales of white striped pigs slowed down, and the willingness to sell pigs at the breeding end increased near the Spring Festival, and the slaughter end reduced prices to increase profits. At present, the occurrence of African swine fever in China is mainly scattered, and many small and medium-sized free-range households have retryed to start production. In the second half of December, the affected areas of African swine fever in the country did not spread significantly, and the overall situation was stable compared with the first half of the month.
