What DTN Is Watching


Heading into Wednesday's session there isn't much to watch marketwise. Grains and oilseeds are expected to trade quietly, with traders keeping an eye on global weather developments. Financial markets have December industrial production and capacity utilization as well as the latest Beige Book.


A swath of moderate to heavy snow is in store for the entire East Coast area of the U.S. Wednesday. Dry conditions will cover all other areas except for a rain/snow mix in the Pacific Northwest. Temperatures in central and eastern areas will show some moderation from bitter-cold values; however, far southern and southeastern locales will still be unseasonably cold.
