WINNIPEG, Manitoba--As November came to a close, the ICE Futures canola market was under pressure by weaknesses in most comparable oils.

While Malaysian palm oil was stronger, Chicago soyoil and European rapeseed were down. Crude oil was also in decline as OPEC+ met today to discuss possible supply cuts.

The Canadian dollar was up one-tenth of a United States cent compared to Wednesday's close.

Statistics Canada will release its principal field crop production report on Dec. 4.

There were 34,595 canola contracts traded on Thursday, which compares with Wednesday when 47,477 contracts changed hands. Spreading accounted for 28,288 of the contracts traded.

Settlement prices are in Canadian dollars per metric ton.
