ICE Canada Review: Canola Weakens With Soybeans, Strong C$

Winnipeg, MB, April 16, 2018 (CNS Canada), Apr 16, 2018 (Commodity News Service Canada, Inc. via COMTEX) --

ICE Futures Canada canola contracts were weaker on Monday, taking some direction from declines in the Chicago Board of Trade soy complex.

tone, as the rising currency cuts into crush margins.

The poor weather has producers holding out for better prices, while
spring road bans were also hampering country movement, said a broker.
About 16,225 canola contracts traded on Monday, which compares with
Friday when 22,567 contracts changed hands. Spreading was a feature,
accounting for 10,448 of the contracts traded.
Settlement prices are in Canadian dollars per metric tonne.
