Seven-day forecasts in South America and the U.S. will continue to capture trader attention along with any news of changes in trade policy. Financial traders will check in on Friday's reports of U.S. industrial production, U.S. housing starts, and consumer sentiment.


A volatile weather mix in the central U.S. Friday will produce moderate to heavy snow and ice in the north-central Plains and portions of the western Midwest, while the Southern Plains will have very warm, windy and dry conditions. Rain is also in store for the southern Midwest and Delta, with heavy snow in the Far West and periods of snow in the Northeast.
