WINNIPEG, February 14 (CNS) – Canola contracts on the ICE Futures Canada platform were lower Wednesday morning, tracking weakness in U.S. soyoil.
Farmer selling has ramped up in recent days, which was bearish for the market.
China’s decision to refuse some recent shipments of U.S. soybeans weighed on values.
However, gains in U.S. soybeans and soymeal limited the losses.
The Canadian dollar was slightly weaker relative to its U.S. counterpart, which made canola more attractive to out-of-country buyers.
