November canola bounced from the $485 level this week, which is the 75% retracement of the move from the November contract's August low to May high. The contract realized a modest loss of $1.20 per metric ton over the week in higher-volume trade with signs of light commercial selling, given the Nov/Jan spread ending $0.10 weaker over the week at minus $6.80/mt (second study).
