ICE Canada Review: Canola pressured by USDA report

Winnipeg, MB, November 9, 2017 (CNS Canada), Nov 09, 2017 (Commodity News Service Canada, Inc. via COMTEX) --

The ICE Futures Canada canola market suffered losses on Thursday, weighed down by a USDA report that was deemed bearish for oilseeds.

In its monthly supply and demand report, the USDA left its estimate for the US soybean yield untouched, which surprised many analysts who had expected it to fall. As a result, a technical selloff occurred which eventually impacted canola.

Meantime the Canadian dollar was about a third of a cent stronger relative to its US counterpart, which weighed on the market.

Rain has fallen in northern Brazil, helping improve growing conditions for the country's soybean crop.

However, global demand for oilseeds remains strong and canola seemed to find a bit of technical support around the C$515 mark.

Around 18,500 canola contracts were traded on Thursday, which compares with Wednesday when around 18,242 contracts changed hands. Spreading accounted for 8,332 of the contracts traded.

Settlement prices are in Canadian dollars per metric tonne.
