Israel under fire for doctoring flotilla recordings

Filed in gld by on June 5, 2010 0 Comments

Bloggers soon picked up on discrepancies between the two. Ma’an also investigated, approaching the army early Saturday and confirming with Huwaida Arraf, a Palestinian activist and chair of the Free Gaza Movement, that her voice was used in the recording. She is heard speaking normally via radio. Saturday’s version supposedly came from the Marmara, at least according to the military. But Arraf was actually a passenger on another of the flotilla’s boats, the Challenger 1. WRH permalink

Expanded Saturday hog kill should support cash bids today.

Filed in Gold, Gold Bullion prices, silver by on June 2, 2010 0 Comments

LEAN HOGS Good morning. Cash hog prices were down hard yesterday as the pork packer continues to work the cash bids lower while enjoying relative stability in the product. Margins have improved and remain profitable in processing hogs. I’m hearing that packers will be expanding the size of the Saturday kill effort. If correct, I would anticipate a firming tone in the cash hog market, likely starting today…we’ll see. Lean hog futures closed mostly higher yesterday despite some negative influence from the outside markets. Today, futures are lower in the early electronic trade but I’ve noticed a firm tone in the hog spreads. This tends to support my outlook for a firming cash market. We did some buying in the July hogs yesterday to assume some new speculative length. Look for a rally once the pit session opens. LIVE CATTLE Live cattle futures closed higher across the board on Tuesday despite a lower start early yesterday in reaction to the negative outside market influences. The higher close tends to confirm that we’ve reached price levels that are beginning to attract buyers. While the near term beef fundamentals are expected to remain sluggish, I consider the long term beef fundamental situation as bullish. Typically the basis tends to weaken at this time of year with the cash market edging under the board. June live cattle options expire on Friday. There are large numbers of calls outstanding. I’d expect the June contract to be capped off on rally attempts into Friday. However, the cash market appears like it could be closer to steady money this week rather than outright lower as most expected late last week. I also noticed that the beef firmed slightly during the afternoon on Tuesday. Look for a two-sided trade today. If you’re not satisfied with your brokerage relationship give me a call or send me an email. dennis.smith@archerfinancials.com 877.377.7905

Israel, which has branded the operation illegal, has warned that its navy will intercept the vessels. “We are more determined than ever. These actions can be frustrating but in the end they are not going to stop us,” Elize Ernshire of the Free Gaza Movement which organised the flotilla said. WRH permalink
