Crop markets inch higher as traders await Fed announcement: Podcast

First interest rate increase in a year expected on Wednesday.

Crop markets were a little higher in light trading on Tuesday as traders focused on Wednesday’s Federal Reserve Bank announcement; the central bank is expected then to announce its first interest rate increase in a year.

Cold weather is in the forecast for the U.S. late this week. Argentina's crop areas are dry this week but should see rain next week.
