What DTN Is Watching


USDA's weekly report of export sales is due out at 7:30 a.m. CDT, followed by the Conference Board's index of leading indicators at 9 a.m. As usual, weather forecasts will be watched for harvest opportunities with more rain expected in the central Corn Belt Monday. Any comments of trade with China also remain of interest.


Friday will be dry in all primary crop areas. Conditions favor harvest progress outside of the northwestern Corn Belt areas affected by last week's snowstorm.
