GENERAL COMMENTS:

Livestock futures are expected mixed to moderately lower early Monday. With just one day of trade and then another holiday break, trade interest and overall volume is expected to remain extremely light. The focus in the hog complex is likely to be placed on the increased inventory levels from Friday's report. This could limit additional support through the entire complex, given the expected lack of trader interest Monday. Corn futures are trading lower in early electronic trade. Stock markets are trading mixed, with Dow Jones posting a 13-point loss, while Nasdaq is up 9 points.
