What DTN Is Watching

As usual, traders will be checking the latest weather forecasts and watching for a possible export sale announcement at 8 a.m. CDT. A report on U.S. new homes sales in August is due out at 9 a.m. At 2 p.m. CDT, USDA releases a quarterly Hogs and Pigs report and a monthly Cattle On-Feed report.


A cold front will bring some isolated showers to northern areas of the country Friday with mild and dry conditions across the rest of the country's growing regions. Despite the showers, harvest conditions should still be good for most of the country, though the eastern Midwest may need several days to dry out from this week's heavy rainfall.
