ICE canola strengthens with outside vegoil markets at midday

By Phil Franz-Warkentin, MarketsFarm

WINNIPEG, Oct. 13 (MarketsFarm) The ICE Futures canola market was stronger at midday Wednesday, taking back some of Tuesday’s losses.
Malaysian palm oil climbed to fresh contract highs in overnight activity, which was supportive for vegetable oil markets in general – including canola. Chicago soyoil futures were also up at midday, although soybeans were softer.
While seasonal harvest pressure contributed to the losses in soybeans, the Canadian canola harvest is complete and a lack of significant farmer selling was supportive, according to a trader.
However, strength in the Canadian dollar did temper the advances in canola.
About 14,500 canola contracts traded as of 10:47 CDT. Intermonth spreading was a feature as participants roll out of the nearby November contract and into January.
