What DTN Is Watching


After Thursday's excitement over a trade-related rumor, Friday could see more active trading in grains than usual. The Federal Reserve will release a report on industrial production at 8:15 a.m. CST, followed later by a consumer sentiment index. Otherwise, traders remain interested in South American weather, any news of trade progress with China or the reopening of the U.S. government.


Snow, strong winds, and cold conditions are in store for the Northern Plains and northern Midwest Friday. Other primary crop areas will be dry. Snow and rain will move into central and south-central crop areas Saturday. A cold wave is still indicated for northern and central areas during the next seven days.
