VEGOILS-Market factors to watch Oct 22

Reuters

The following factors are likely to influence Malaysian palm oil futures and

other vegetable oil markets.

FUNDAMENTALS

* Malaysian palm futures jumped on Monday to their highest in 1-1/2 months,

lifted by gains in the U.S. and Chinese soy markets after positive economic data

from the Asian giant signalled growing demand for food and fuel.

* Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) wheat futures retreated on profit-taking and

technical selling on Monday after rising to the highest since early June on last

week's report of a low official crop estimate in Argentina.

* U.S. crude oil prices on Monday tumbled below $100 a barrel for the first time

since July, while the discount versus European Brent hit its widest in six

months as diminished Midwest inventories began to grow.

MARKET NEWS

* Asian shares steadied at a five-month high and a recently battered dollar

stabilised ahead of a key U.S. jobs report later on Tuesday that will give clues

as to whether the Federal Reserve will start withdrawing stimulus this year.

* U.S. crude oil tumbled below $100 a barrel for the first time since July on

Monday amid fears of excessive near-term supplies, and most other commodities

closed lower too on uncertainties about demand.
