CHICAGO Jan 29 (Reuters) - IntercontinentalExchange on Tuesday said it will keep its U.S. grain and oilseed markets open during major agricultural reports, dousing traders' hopes for a pause to digest the data.

Rival exchange CME Group said it would support a halt in grain trading during U.S. Department of Agriculture reports if all exchanges did the same.
