What DTN Is Watching


The day has already started with news that President Trump wants to move forward with tariffs against all $505 billion of China's goods. As far as reports go, Friday is livestock day with USDA's semi-annual cattle inventory and July 1 on-feed reports due out after the close. CFTC's Commitments of Traders report follows the livestock reports and weather continues to be a primary interest.


Showers and thunderstorms are in store for the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley Friday. Showers will also be noted in the Southeast. Other areas will be dry. Conditions remain highly variable for crops while allowing for high water receding and storm damage cleanup in South Dakota and Iowa. Dangerous heat covers the Southern Plains with more wildfire danger in the western U.S.
