ICE Review : Canola Posts Solid Gains

09/23/2021 | 03:29pm

WINNIPEG, Manitoba--The ICE Futures canola market was stronger on Thursday, underpinned by solid demand and gains in outside markets.

European rapeseed and Malaysian palm oil futures both set fresh contract highs overnight. Chicago Board of Trade soyoil futures were also stronger.

Seasonal harvest pressure did temper the upside, with relatively favorable weather conditions across the Prairies allowing farmers to make quick progress. However, the continued dryness was already leading to concerns over the 2022 crop after the drought of 2021 cut into yields.

Strength in the Canadian dollar and ideas that canola remains overpriced compared to other oilseeds also weighed on values.

About 19,134 canola contracts traded on Thursday, which compares with Wednesday when 26,769 contracts changed hands.

Spreading was a feature, accounting for 13,412 of the contracts traded.

Settlement prices are in Canadian dollars per metric tonne.
