ICE Canola Corrects Higher

Winnipeg – ICE Canada canola futures were higher  Wednesday morning, seeing a corrective bounce after Tuesday’s sharp  declines.

Gains in CBOT soybeans and Malaysian palm oil in overnight  activity contributed to the firmer tone in canola, according to  participants.

With Canadian canola supplies expected to be tight by the end  of the current crop year, the losses likely uncovered some  bargain-hunting from end users as well, said traders.

However, the technical bias is said to have shifted to the  downside. As a result, any attempts at correcting higher will likely  be seen as good selling opportunities.

Expectations for large South American soybean production this  year were also overhanging the oilseed markets.

About 2,000 canola contracts had traded as of 8:38 CST.

Milling wheat, durum, and barley futures were all untraded and  unchanged Wednesday morning.
