Malaysian palm oil/Vegoils: Market factors to watch on Wednesday June 10

KUALA LUMPUR: The following factors are likely to influence Malaysian palm oil futures and other vegetable oil markets on Wednesday June 10.

FUNDAMENTALS
* Malaysian palm oil futures inched down on Tuesday as investors booked profits ahead of key industry data on monthly inventories and output in the No.2 producer, with prices facing pressure as the ringgit clawed back gains from nine-year lows. 
* U.S. wheat futures jumped as much as 1 percent on Tuesday, extending gains from the previous session to a two-month high as investors bet that heavy rains would hit yields of the winter wheat crop in the southern U.S. Plains. 
* Prices for crude oil, gasoline and diesel jumped more than 3 percent on Tuesday, as bullish investors made bets across the oil complex for another weekly drop in U.S. stockpiles.

MARKET NEWS
* U.S. stocks ended Tuesday virtually unchanged after a choppy trading day with investors hesitant to make bets while a sharp increase in oil prices failed to boost energy stocks.
