Malaysian palm oil/Vegoils: Market factors to watch Tuesday May 5

KUALA LUMPUR: The following factors are likely to influence Malaysian palm oil futures and other vegetable oil markets on Tuesday May 5.

FUNDAMENTALS
* Malaysian palm oil futures rose for the first time in a week on Thursday as investors squared positions ahead of a long holiday weekend, but the gains were not enough to prevent the contract from recording its second straight monthly drop. 
* U.S. soybean futures rose 1.3 percent on Monday, following a sharp rally in soyoil that stemmed from talk of rising demand on the export market. 
* Brent oil hit a 2015 high before settling down with U.S. crude on Monday as Saudi Arabia’s plan to halt bombing in Yemen eased tensions over the security of oil Middle East supplies. 

MARKET NEWS
* Global equity markets rose on Monday, lifted by the biggest gain in U.S. factory orders in eight months and solid manufacturing data in Germany, while German bund yields gained as investors shook off deflation fears.
