What DTN Is Watching


The grain and oilseed complex has nothing new to keep track of, really, unless winter wheat contracts fall to new lows. Otherwise look for it to be another long, low volatility session. Equity traders will be cheering a decisive move about 23,000 by the DJIA when (not if) it happens. Meanwhile, financial markets will take note of September housing starts, building permits, and the release of the Beige Book.


Dry and warm conditions remain in effect over all major crop regions Wednesday, again favorable for harvest.
