CNS Canada –– ICE Futures Canada canola contracts may have seen some weather-related strength over the past week, but technical signals remain relatively flat overall.
The November contract settled Friday at $469.80 per tonne, nearing the high end of a corkscrew pattern — a series of higher lows and lower highs — going back over two months, that ranges from about $445 to $475.
Beyond the outer edges of the well-established range, the November contract may see nearby support at $464 (50-day moving average) and $462 (20-day moving average).
On the other side, if the market manages to break above $475, the next target to the upside comes in at the 100-day average, around $480 per tonne.
