What DTN Is Watching

The U.S. Commerce Department will release new home sales for May at 9 a.m. CDT, followed by the Energy Department's weekly inventory report at 9:30 a.m. U.S. ethanol production has a chance of exceeding one million barrels per day for a sixth consecutive week. Traders will continue to watch the latest forecasts and if Tuesday's rumors were correct, there may be a soybean export sale announced at 8 a.m. Wednesday.


Some isolated showers will be possible across the Northern and Central Plains as well as the Gulf Coast Wednesday. This comes ahead of a cold front pushing into the northern U.S. overnight. Ahead of the front, temperatures will be quite warm for at least a day in the Plains, but with good conditions for winter wheat harvest.
