ICE Canola Drifts Lower

Winnipeg – ICE Canada canola futures were mostly  weaker Tuesday morning, as a softer tone in CBOT soybeans and a lack  of any major surprises in the updated USDA supply/demand projections  weighed on prices.
Ending stocks of US soybeans at the end of the current crop year  were revised down to 130 million bushels by the USDA, from 140 million  in the previous report. While the tighter US stocks were a little  supportive for the oilseed markets in general, global supply  projections were left relatively unchanged and soybeans drifted  lower.
Overnight losses in Malaysian palm oil contributed to the  declines in canola, as palm oil prices were testing chart support.
Uncertain South American production prospects did keep some  caution in the markets, according to participants, although current  conditions look relatively favourable for crop development.
Ongoing concerns over tightening canola supplies in western  Canada, and the need to ration demand going forward, did provide some  underlying support for canola, according to traders.
About 2,100 canola contracts had traded as of 8:41 CST.
Milling wheat, durum, and barley futures were all untraded and  unchanged Tuesday morning.
