ICE Review : Canola Up Sharply Ahead of Weekend

09/24/2021 | 03:57pm

WINNIPEG--The ICE Futures canola market was up sharply Friday, finding spillover support from outside vegetable oil markets.

European rapeseed and Malaysian palm oil futures both set fresh contract highs overnight, with Chicago soyoil also posting solid gains.

Tight supplies and drought concerns were also supportive, although seasonal harvest pressure did temper those gains. Ideas that canola remains overpriced also weighed on prices.

Weekly data from the Canadian Grain Commission showed total canola exports through the first seven weeks of the 2021/22 crop year of 387,900 metric tons running nearly a million metric tons behind the previous year's pace.

About 22,772 canola contracts traded on Friday, which compares with Thursday when 19,134 contracts changed hands.

Spreading accounted for 14,752 of the contracts traded.

Settlement prices are in Canadian dollars per metric ton.
