ICE Canola Follows Soybeans Up

WINNIPEG – Canola  contracts on the ICE Futures Canada platform were trading at  stronger price levels at 10:40 CST Monday, following the  advances seen in the CBOT soybean complex, analysts said.
Much of the strength in the CBOT soybean complex was  linked to talk of fresh export sales, according to traders.
Slow farmer selling, as they’re holding out for higher  prices, also helped canola values move to higher ground.
Sentiment that the market is oversold and needed a  correction to the upside also helped to lift canola values,  participants said.
However, the upswing in the value of the Canadian dollar,  as it soared above parity with its US counterpart, limited the  advances.
Expectations for a large South American soybean crop due  to beneficial weather for the development of the crop there  also undermined values.
Activity was on the lighter side at midday Monday, as  funds were on the sidelines due to neutral chart signals,  brokers noted.
As of 10:40 CDT, about 4,810 canola contracts had traded.
Milling wheat, barley and durum were untraded and  unchanged.
