ICE Canada Review: Canola ekes out gains with help from soyoil

Winnipeg, MB, Mar 20, 2016 (CNS Canada), Mar 20, 2017 (Commodity News Service Canada, Inc. via COMTEX) --

THE ICE Futures Canada canola market recorded minor gains to start the week, following advances in Chicago Board of Trade soyoil.

The Canadian dollar was about a tenth of a cent weaker relative to its US counterpart, which helped support canola.

Farmer selling was slow and funds are thought to be short in the market.

"We could be stuck in this range-bound choppy action ahead of the (March 31 USDA planting intentions) report," a trader in Winnipeg said.

However, weakness in Malaysian palm oil limited the advances.

Large supplies from South America continue to stream onto the market which undermined values.

Around 16,813 canola contracts were traded on Monday, which compares with Friday when around 21,528 contracts changed hands. Spreading accounted for about 10,878 of the contracts traded.

Milling wheat, barley and durum were all untraded.

Settlement prices are in Canadian dollars per metric tonne.
