Howard Leaman                                                     Mch 19/18

     Canola was mainly on the defensive on Monday, ending lower. The
weakness was attributed to spillover selling from the soy complex, palm oil
and European rapeseed, and a bounce in the Canadian dollar. The Canadian
dollar fell sharply last Friday against the U.S. dollar, but recovered
about a fifth of a cent on Monday. Much of the weakness in the vegetable
oils was attributed to a shift in traders' focus away from drought concerns
in Argentina to the prospects of potentially large production in the
northern hemisphere in 2018/19. 

     The selling in canola was curbed by a reluctancy to drive prices too
lower too fast. Prices often rally going into the North American growing
season as traders "kill" the crop at least once.
