VEGOILS-Market factors to watch April 24

KUALA LUMPUR, April 24 (Reuters) - The following factors are likely to

influence Malaysian palm oil futures and other vegetable oil markets.


* Malaysian palm oil futures fell to their lowest in a week on Tuesday, their

second straight day of losses as concerns persisted over high inventory levels

in the world's second largest producer.

* U.S. soybean futures fell to a seven-month low on Tuesday as traders focused

on demand destruction resulting from the ongoing U.S. trade war with top global

soy buyer China as well as the effects of a devastating disease in China's hog


* Oil prices hit their highest in about six months on Tuesday as sources said

Gulf OPEC members were ready to raise output only if there was demand before

offsetting any shortfall following a U.S. decision to end waivers for buyers of

Iranian crude.


* Global equity markets rallied on Tuesday, with the Nasdaq and S&P 500 indexes

setting record closing highs on Wall Street, while European energy shares posted

their biggest daily gain since January as crude prices surged.


> Russia tightens grip over grain exports with state-led association

> Brazil grain growers launch hotline to report Bayer's market
