Most market participants will be waiting for the kickoff of a long list of college football games Friday, while others will be looking for bargains in stores rather than in the marketplace. Still, markets will be open and lower volume could lead to increased volatility.


Light rain and snow are in store for the northern Plains and northern Midwest Friday. Other primary crop areas will be dry. Conditions will favor late-stage harvest in the eastern Corn Belt. Very warm and dry southern Plains conditions will extract more soil moisture.
