Canola up, while cereals fall on good weather

November canola finished up 80 cents to $448.10 per tonne on the ICE futures market. January improved 90 cents to finish $454.90  and reaching out to May 2020 things improved $1.90 on the day, pushing it to $468.

Wheat and corn took a hit to prices as those futures felt the pressure of a wide variety of weather forecasts that call for heat, rain, cooler weather and the possibility of a big low forming up in the American Gulf Coast region that might flick some moisture as far north as the Midwest.

All that uncertainty appeared to weigh heavily on the American grain trade, which has been largely supportive of poorer crop conditions across the corn belt and in big parts of the Great Plains.

An American crop condition report yesterday also showed improvement for both corn and soybeans, with warm weather and limited rainfall over the recent five days. U.S. wheat crops have not been helped with the wet conditions, with the first harvests underway in the southern states.

While corn prices were lower on the day, soybeans were more optimistic, as the same crop condition report showed slower planting and diminishing yields. Last week’s inventory report from the USDA put ending stocks 100 million bushels lower than the previous report.

August soybean futures finished the day on Chicago 7 U.S. cents higher at $8.86 per bushel and November at $9.04-25.

The next major USDA report will be out on Thursday and that should put some more numbers behind inventory and crop condition.
