ICE canola correcting higher early Thursday

By Phil Franz-Warkentin, MarketsFarm

WINNIPEG, Jan. 21 (MarketsFarm) – The ICE Futures canola market was stronger Thursday morning, seeing a modest bounce after posting heavy losses earlier in the week.

While canola had been due for a profit-taking correction from a chart standpoint, the underlying fundamentals remain supportive. As a result, concerns over tight supplies and the need to ration demand were back providing support.

Gains in Chicago Board of Trade soybeans and soyoil added to the firmer tone in canola.

However, recent strength in the Canadian dollar tempered the upside, as the currency held well above 79 U.S. cents in early activity.

About 10,200 canola contracts had traded as of 8:44 CST.
