What DTN Is Watching


Trade news continues to take more turns that are hostile to investor concerns. The final week in June begins with U.S. new home sales and weekly export inspections reports, followed by USDA's Crop Progress in the afternoon. Weather remains a constant interest with more rain expected this week.


Light to moderate rain is in store Monday in large portions of the central Plains, Midwest, and mid-South. Other areas will be dry. Temperatures will be mild in northern and central areas and hot south. Conditions remain generally favorable for row crops, with some disruptions in wheat harvest.
