    HAZELTON, N.D. (Reuters) - As the 2018 harvest approached, North Dakota farmer Mike Appert had a problem - too many soybeans and nowhere to put them. Selling was a bad option. Prices were near decade lows as U.S. President Donald Trump’s trade war with China weighed heavily on the market. Temporary storage would only buy him a little bit of time, particularly in an area where cold weather can damage crops stored in plastic bags.

    He sold half of the 456,000 bushels stored on his farm throughout the following summer, earning about $1 more per bushel and avoiding storage at nearby CHS elevators or an Archer Daniels Midland Co. (ADM.N) processor in the area.

    But most farmers do not have $800,000 to spend on steel bins, and many are going under....

    BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Euro zone inflation was stable in August at its lowest level in nearly three years, the European Union’s statistics agency said on Wednesday, confirming its earlier estimates.

    Eurostat said inflation in the 19 countries sharing the euro was at 1% on the year in August, unchanged from the July reading and in line with expectations in a Reuters poll.

    On the month, inflation went up 0.1%, below market expectations of a 0.2% rise, new monthly data released by Eurostat showed.

    The rates of yearly price increases in July and August are the lowest since November 2016, well below the ECB’s inflation target of below but close to 2% despite years of unprecedented monetary stimulus through rate cuts and trillions of euros of bond purchases.
