World & Policy Perspectives

What DTN Is Watching


Weather remains a focus of traders this time of year, but an end-of-week rally in European wheat is providing early excitement for U.S. wheat prices. Any news pertaining to the new trade meeting with China or developments in Turkey will be of interest. There are no major reports other than U.S. consumer sentiment and the index of leading economic indicators.


Moderate to heavy rain is in store for the eastern and southern Midwest, interior Northeast, and northern Delta Friday. Light to moderate rain will cover much of the Southeast. Other crop areas will be dry. Stressful heat returns to southern areas and remains in place over northern areas.
