ICE Canola Continues Higher

WINNIPEG, MB, Feb. 7, 2018 (CNS Canada), Feb 07, 2018 (Commodity News Service Canada, Inc. via COMTEX) --

ICE Futures Canada canola contracts were steady to mostly higher Wednesday morning, seeing some follow-through buying interest after Tuesday's rally.

A move above the psychological C$500 per tonne level in the nearby March contract was supportive from a chart standpoint, helping underpin the futures.

Ongoing weakness in the Canadian dollar, which was down about a fifth of a cent in early activity, contributed to the firmer tone in canola.

However, a slightly softer tone in Chicago Board of Trade soybeans and soyoil tempered the upside potential in canola. Ample old crop supplies and expectations for large Canadian seedings this spring also put some pressure on values.

About 7,500 canola contracts had traded as of 8:53 CST.

Prices in Canadian dollars per metric ton at 8:53 CST:

                          Price      Change
Canola            Mar     500.60    up  0.80
                  May     506.20    up  0.70
                  Jul     511.10    up  0.50
                  Nov     508.00    up  0.30
