VEGOILS-Market factors to watch Mar 30

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

markets.

FUNDAMENTALS

* Malaysian palm oil futures rose for a second consecutive session on Wednesday, supported by

strength in soyoil on the Chicago Board of Trade and a weaker ringgit.

* U.S. soybean futures closed lower on Wednesday, while corn and wheat prices edged higher as

investors squared positions ahead of U.S. Department of Agriculture plantings and grain stocks

data on Friday, traders and analysts said.


* Oil prices rose more than 2 percent on Wednesday as U.S. crude inventories grew less than

expected, supply disruptions continued in Libya and the OPEC-led output cut by producing

countries looked likely to be extended.

MARKET NEWS

* Stocks rose slightly on Wall Street on Wednesday and a global equities index ticked lower,

while crude futures hit a nine-day high after a smaller-than-expected build in U.S. inventories.
