ICE Review: Nearby Canola Contracts Are Either Side of Steady

08/18/2022 | 03:43pm EDT

WINNIPEG, Manitoba--Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) canola futures were narrowly mixed at the close on Thursday, in an attempt to recover from double-digit losses earlier in the session.

Support for the Canadian oilseed came from strong upticks in Chicago soybeans and soymeal, however weakness in soyoil weighed on values.

Additional pressure came from losses in European rapeseed and Malaysian palm oil. Increases in global crude oil prices tempered the declines in vegetable oils.

A trader predicted the coming canola harvest will be under 19 million tonnes. He said that's due to excessive moisture in some parts of the Prairies and too little in other areas of the region. He added those conditions have eliminated any chance of output in 2022/23 reaching 20 million tonnes.

The trader also warned canola prices will most likely drop as fall approaches. He also said crushers are experiencing some of the best margins he's ever seen.

Saskatchewan reported that the province's harvest was at five percent complete overall, with winter cereals leading the way.

The Canadian dollar was lower at mid-afternoon, with the loonie at 77.25 U.S. cents, compared to Wednesday's close 77.45.

There were 27,724 contracts traded on Thursday, which compares with Wednesday when 24,978 contracts changed hands.

Spreading accounted 16,436 contracts traded.

Settlement prices are in Canadian dollars per metric tonne.
