ICE Closing Review : The Inevitable End to Canola Rally Strikes

10/21/2021 | 01:37pm EST

WINNIPEG, Manitoba--Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) canola futures dropped back on Thursday, most likely due to profit-taking according to a trader.

Canola prices rallied for several days after they had been in a trading range for a number of weeks. The trader stressed the Canadian oilseed will need to remain expensive when going through the upcoming winter.

There were also sharp downturns in the Chicago soy complex, European rapeseed and Malaysian palm oil. The latter two retreated from recent contract highs.

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada issued its monthly supply and demand estimates and the trader suggested that exports of 6.5 million tonnes are too high, while domestic use of 7.7 million tonnes is too low. He said AAFC's estimate of almost 12.8 million tonnes of canola produced this year is probably quite close to what came off of the Prairie fields.

Statistics Canada will issues its survey-based production report on Dec. 3.

The trader noted that Australia is set to export a record 4.5 million tonnes of canola this year. However, he said the extra 1.5 million the country is to put on the global market will have little impact on prices.

At mid-afternoon the Canadian dollar was lower with the loonie at 80.78 U.S. cents, compared to Wednesday's close of 81.11.

There were 31,106 contracts traded on Thursday, which compares with Wednesday when 36,030 contracts changed hands.

Spreading accounted for 23,342 contracts traded.

Settlement prices are in Canadian dollars per metric tonne.
