ICE Canola Midday: Prices weaker midday Thursday

By Marlo Glass, MarketsFarm

WINNIPEG, Sept. 24 (MarketsFarm) – ICE Futures canola contracts were sharply lower at midday Thursday, walking back previous gains made last week.

Weakness in comparable vegetable oils spurred losses for canola, as nearby soyoil contracts were down by about half of penny in early morning trade after losing about two cents earlier in the week. Chicago soymeal was also lower after holding on to some gains earlier in the week.

Harvest activity across the Canadian Prairies also kept pressure on canola prices.

The Canadian dollar was slightly weaker at midday, preventing further losses for canola. The dollar was around 74.6 U.S. cents due to comparable strength in the U.S. dollar index.

Approximately 20,000 canola contracts were traded as of 10:40 CDT.
