WINNIPEG, Manitoba--The ICE Futures canola market continued its slide downwards for the fifth time over the past six sessions, being pressured from vegetable oils.

Chicago soyoil lost more than two United States cents per pound, while European rapeseed was also down. However, Malaysian palm oil was up, bringing support to canola. Crude oil moved lower on Monday, but China's Golden Week, which attracts millions of tourists, is expected to drive up demand.

At mid-afternoon, the Canadian dollar was unchanged compared to Friday's close.

High temperatures in the Prairies will range from the mid-teens to low-20 degrees Celsius later today with the warmest temperatures in Saskatchewan.

About 44,449 canola contracts were traded on Monday, which compares with Friday when 31,262 contracts changed hands.

Spreading accounted for 31,906 of the contracts traded.

Settlement prices are in Canadian dollars per metric tonne.
