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.

Traded volumes stood at 49,508 lots of 25 tonnes each on

Tuesday evening.

The market rose due to forecasts of weaker output and

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 drop, while Societe Generale de Surveillance saw a 7.9

percent decline.

Palm also tracks the movement of other related vegetable

oils, as they compete for a share in the global edible oils


Soybean oil on the Chicago Board of Trade was up 0.5

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

Commodity Exchange was up 0.1 percent.

Palm oil remained within a range of 2,767-2,810 ringgit per

tonne, said Wang Tao, a Reuters market analyst for commodities

and energy technicals.
