ICE Review: Canola Sets Fresh Contract Highs

WINNIPEG--The ICE Futures canola market was stronger Tuesday, setting fresh contract highs as bullish chart signals provided support.

Canola had started the day on the defensive, but the early profit-taking quickly faded and speculators returned to the buy side.

Tight supplies and the need to ration demand contributed to the firmer tone in canola.

However, choppy activity in the Chicago Board of Trade soy complex kept some caution in the market. Soyoil was weaker at the close while soybeans held within a narrow range. Ideas that canola is looking overpriced at current levels also tempered the advances.

About 29,642 canola contracts traded on Tuesday, which compares with Monday, when 25,547 contracts changed hands. Spreading accounted for 21,636 of the contracts traded.

Settlement prices are in Canadian dollars per metric ton.
