What DTN Is Watching


Rain in the forecast has taken on new attention after flooding concerns appeared around northern Iowa Thursday. Otherwise, news may be light Friday with USDA's monthly cattle on-feed report due out at 2 p.m. CDT. Stock traders will be aware of multiple expirations, known as quadruple witching day.


Friday features moderate to heavy rain in the Southern Plains and light rain in the northern and southern Midwest. Other crop areas will be dry. Northern and western Midwest harvest will be delayed because of heavy rain this week. Conditions remain more favorable for harvest in the eastern Midwest. A notably cooler pattern is forming as well.
