KUALA LUMPUR, March 21 (Reuters) - Malaysian palm oil
futures rebounded on Tuesday from a three-day low to chart their
strongest daily gain in a week, tracking stronger soyoil prices
and supported by forecasts of weaker output.
Benchmark palm oil futures for June delivery on
the Bursa Malaysia Derivatives Exchange rose 1 percent to 2,809
ringgit ($635) a tonne at the end of the trading day, the
biggest daily gain since March 15.
The contract earlier fell to an intraday low of 2,754
ringgit, its lowest in three days.

supportive soyoil on the Chicago Board of Trade, said a futures
trader from Kuala Lumpur.
Malaysian output fell 1.4 percent in February from January,
while end-stocks declined 5.3 percent to 1.46 million tonnes.
Palm was earlier trading in a range and was down at the
midday break as related edible oils weakened and demand slowed.
Palm oil exports from Malaysia, the world's second largest
producer of the tropical oil, fell between March 1-20 compared
with the same period a month ago.
Cargo surveyor Intertek Testing Services reported a 3

percent, while the September soybean oil contract on the Dalian
Commodity Exchange fell 0.2 percent.
The September contract for palm olein on the Dalian
