What DTN Is Watching


Grains see the release of holiday-delayed weekly export inspections (for the week ending Thursday, January 12) Tuesday morning, though traders will mostly be weighing in on Argentina's weekend weather. Financial traders will continue to watch the meltdown of the U.S. dollar index and the corresponding rally in gold.


Light to moderate rain is in store from the Deep South through eastern Midwest Tuesday. We'll also see a wintry mix of precipitation in the interior Northwest. Other primary U.S. and Canadian Prairies crop regions will be dry. Temperatures will be seasonal in northern areas and very warm for the season in the southern and eastern sectors. This combination will favor recovery in the central U.S. following the weekend ice storm. In South America, moderate to heavy rain fell over the weekend in north-central Argentina, adding to fears of possibly several million acres being flooded out and lost to production this year.
