ICE Canada Review: Canola dips in follow-through selling

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

Canola contracts on the ICE Futures Canada platform recorded losses on Thursday, as traders engaged in follow-through selling on the heels of a bearish report from Statistics Canada.

The canola market was also undermined by losses in U.S. soybeans.

Technical selling was a feature of the day's activity.

Weakness in Malaysian palm oil futures added to the downside.

However, gains in U.S. soyoil limited the losses.

"Demand is good," said a trader in Winnipeg. "I think it's one of the main things underpinning this bigger canola crop."

Around 17,212 canola contracts were traded on Thursday, which compares with Wednesday when around 21,814 contracts changed hands. Spreading accounted for 11,020 of the contracts traded.

Settlement prices are in Canadian dollars per metric tonne.
