ICE canola drops sharply to start week

By Phil Franz-Warkentin, MarketsFarm

WINNIPEG, Nov. 30 (MarketsFarm) – The ICE Futures canola market was sharply lower Monday morning, as investors booked profits on the recent multi-year highs on the last trading day of the month.

Losses in Chicago Board of Trade soybeans and soyoil accounted for some spillover selling pressure in canola, with much-needed rains falling in parts of South America over the weekend.

Expectations for large Australian canola production this year also weighed on values, with the country’s agriculture department forecasting a 3.7 million tonne crop. That would be up 59 per cent on the year, and the fifth-largest on record.

The Canadian dollar was stronger in early activity.

About 9,500 canola contracts had traded as of 8:48 CST.
