ICE Canada Review: Canola rises with CDN currency issues

Winnipeg, MB, November 7, 2017 (CNS Canada), Nov 07, 2017 (Commodity News Service Canada, Inc. via COMTEX) --

The ICE Futures Canada canola market posted modest gains on Tuesday, taking support from action in the Canadian currency.

"We are still in an up-trending channel," said a trader in Winnipeg. "With the dollar going back down the canola market has popped back up."

Advances in U.S. soybeans and soyoil underpinned canola.

The crush margins improved which was bullish for the market.

However, rains have been alleviating dryness problems in Brazilian soybean fields, which was bearish.

The most-active January contract has run into technical resistance.

Around 22,211 canola contracts were traded on Tuesday, which compares with Monday when around 9,384 contracts changed hands. Spreading accounted for 14,954 of the contracts traded.

Settlement prices are in Canadian dollars per metric tonne.
