WINNIPEG, (Manitoba): ICE canola futures dropped on Wednesday, caught in a sell-off of oilseeds. Canola prices have traded more firmly than soybean prices of late, and a re-adjustment factored into canola’s weakness, a trader said, adding that he expects choppy, sideways trading in upcoming sessions.
May canola lost $13.60 to settle at $763.70 per tonne. May-July canola spread, the most active inter-month spread, traded 7,299 times.
