ICE Closing Review : Sharp Gains for Old Crop Canola

12/02/2021 | 03:44pm EST

WINNIPEG, Manitoba--Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) canola futures closed higher on Thursday, with the strongest gains in the front months.

The rolling out of the January contract was a feature.

There was ample support from significant upticks in European rapeseed and the Chicago soy complex. Moderate declines in Malaysian palm oil attempted to cool further increases.

Spillover from global crude oil prices underpinned edible oil values, including canola. However, crude was especially swingy in trading today, which affected edible oils.

Canadian National Rail said it will reopen its Kamloops to Vancouver corridor over the weekend. Another round of heavy rains for southern British Columbia forced CN to close its line a second time. Also, the railway began diverting some of its trains to Prince Rupert to help alleviate its backlog.

Statistics Canada is set to issue its principal field crops report on Friday morning. The trade largely expects to see declines in production for canola, wheat and other major grains.

Regardless of the report, canola supplies will remain tight and continue to underpin values for the foreseeable future.

At mid-afternoon the Canadian dollar was lower, with the loonie at 78.04 U.S. cents, compared to Wednesday's close of 78.27.

There were 18,282 contracts traded on Thursday, which compares with Wednesday when 19,346 contracts changed hands.

Spreading accounted for 10,758 contracts traded.

Settlement prices are in Canadian dollars per metric tonne.
