ICE canola futures rise on short covering, halt skid

Manitoba (Reuters) – ICE canola futures rose on Friday, halting a four-day skid on short-covering and strength in soyoil.

Funds covered part of their short position after the November contract bounced off the support level of $440 on Thursday, a trader said.

Lack of export demand, with China not buying Canadian canola, overhangs the market, a trader said. Supplies are ample, with a crop tour on Thursday reporting that canola yields look to rebound from earlier dry conditions.

November canola gained $2.80 to $444.80 per tonne.

Seventy percent of canola in Alberta was rated good or excellent, the Canadian provincial government said.

November-January canola spread traded 2,286 times.

Chicago August soybeans rose in a rebound from the previous day’s two-month low.

Paris Matif November rapeseed futures and Malaysian October palm oil futures eased.

The Canadian dollar weakened to a six-week low against its U.S. counterpart after domestic data showed a decrease in exports and as investors weighed the prospect of additional U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods.
