ICE Canola Lower, Following Soybeans

WINNIPEG – Canola contracts on the ICE  Futures Canada platform were trading at slightly lower price  levels at 10:44 CST Wednesday, following the losses in the CBOT  soybean complex, analysts said.
Much of the selling that took soybeans to lower ground was  linked to good growing conditions for the South American soybean  crop.
The strong Canadian dollar, as it remained above parity with  its US counterpart, also undermined canola values, as it made the  commodity more expensive for foreign buyers.
However, a pickup in commercial buying by domestic crushers  at the lows helped to slow the declines, according to market  watchers.
Slow farmer selling, as they’re waiting for higher prices,  also underpinned canola values.
As of 10:44 CST, about 6,895 canola contracts had traded.
Milling wheat, durum and barley were untraded and unchanged.
