Daily Price Limits

Regular Limits

1. Trading is prohibited during any Trading Day in canola futures contracts at a price which exceeds the settlement price of the previous Trading Day session by an amount higher or lower than Thirty dollars Cdn. ($30.00 Cdn.) per tonne.

2. Provided that in the case of trading in a contract that is eligible for delivery in that month, there shall be no daily limit on price movement on the last Trading Day.

3. Provided further that, under certain market conditions, system- priced legs of spread trades may be priced outside the aforementioned Daily Limits.

Expanded Limits

If the settlement price of any two (2) contract months in the Canola futures contract is at the regular daily limits, the limits shall be expanded on the following day to Forty Five dollars Cdn. ($45 ) per tonne.

If, while the daily limits are expanded to $45 per tonne, the settlement price of any two (2) contract months in the Canola futures contract is at the expanded limit, the limits shall be further expanded on the following day to Sixty dollars Cdn ($60) per tonne.

If price limits are expanded to either $45 or $60, and no contract month settles at the expanded limit that day, the limits shall move to the next-lowest level the following day.

Settlement Price

The settlement price shall be determined in the following manner:

a. Immediately following the closing bell, all brokers and traders in the pit shall report to the pit reporter and the Wheat Pit Committee all outright trades, bids and offers and all spread trades, bids and offers made in the closing period that are relevant in determining settlement prices in accordance with Sections (b), (c) & (d) below.

b. The settlement price of the lead contract month (determined by the Wheat Pit Committee based on criteria such as volume, open interest and historical experience) shall be determined by the weighted average method of the trades in the closing period as reflected in the information reported to the pit reporter and Committee in accordance with subpart "a" of this Rule.

c. The remaining contract months shall be settled based on spread price relationships, considering spread trades reported during the close. If individual spreads trade at multiple prices during the close, the Committee shall use the weighted average of spread prices in determining the settlement. The lead contract month settlement price shall serve as the initial spread relationship basing point for adjacent contract months, whose settlement can then be used in chronology to determine deferred month settlements.

d. If no spreads involving a particular contract month traded during the close, the Committee shall take into consideration other market information available to the Committee that is pertinent to such contract month, including but not limited to, spread bids and offers, the latest quoted spread trade, the latest outright trades, bids or offers and the settlement price differentials that existed on the previous day in order to determine a settlement price that most accurately reflects the relationship between such month and surrounding contract months.

e. If any settlement price is not consistent with market information known to the Wheat Pit Committee supervising the closing, or if trading is terminated without a closing period, then the Committee may establish a settlement price at a level consistent with such market information and shall cause to be prepared a written record setting forth the basis for such settlement price.

Note: It is possible that the settlement prices established as a result of spread price relationships could result in settlement prices that violate either open outright contract month or spread orders. No such orders shall be elected and brokers shall not be held liable on orders violated as a result of such settlement price procedure.

Last Trading Day

Trading shall cease on the Trading Day preceding the 15 calendar day of the delivery month.
