ICE canola turns lower at midday

By Phil Franz-Warkentin, MarketsFarm

WINNIPEG, Oct. 26 (MarketsFarm) – The ICE Futures canola market was posting losses in the most active contracts at midday Monday, seeing some consolidation just below their recently-hit multi-year highs.

Chart-based selling was a feature, amid ideas canola was looking overbought from a technical standpoint.

Losses in Chicago Board of Trade soybeans and ample supplies in the commercial pipeline contributed to the declines.

However, gains in CBOT soyoil and a softer tone in the Canadian dollar provided underlying support.

A lack of significant farmer selling pressure, as harvest operations have wrapped up across the Prairies, also helped temper the declines.

About 14,300 canola contracts traded as of 10:33 CDT.
