The following factors are likely to influence Malaysian palm oil futures and
other vegetable oil markets.
* Malaysian palm oil futures fell on Wednesday to the lowest in three weeks,
weighed down by concerns of rising production pushing stocks higher this month.
* U.S. soybean futures crawled higher on Wednesday as hot weather in the U.S.
Midwest encouraged traders to expect a lower harvest outlook in a government
report due on Thursday.
* Crude oil prices edged up in choppy trading on Wednesday as investors worried
about whether diplomatic efforts to eliminate Syria's chemical weapons would
avert military action that could disrupt oil supplies from the Middle East.
* Fixed-income investors gobbled up $49 billion in notes sold by Verizon on
Wednesday, the largest-ever corporate bond sale in history, while global stocks
rose as tensions over a possible military strike on Syria eased, and the dollar
fell to a two-week low.
* Most commodities were little changed on Wednesday with benchmark crude oil
above $111 a barrel and copper holding steady too, as investors worried about
whether diplomatic efforts would avert a proposed U.S. strike on Syria.
