Markets keep March rally alive

Traders try to digest heavy news day to end week. (Video report)

Grain futures are steady to higher this morning, keeping their March rally going while trying to absorb a lot of news to end the week. Trade talks with China heat up again next week, but no quick fix is expected with Chinese buying of U.S. soybeans easing recently. Farm Futures releases results of its latest grower survey at 7 a.m. CDT Friday, although there’s plenty of uncertainty over weather and economics in play. More storms are due over the weekend, and forecasts through spring call for above normal precipitation as well.
