Palm oil/Vegoils: Market factors to watch Sept 17 Wednesday

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

FUNDAMENTALS
* Malaysian palm oil futures rose to a one-month high on Monday, lifted by gains
in U.S. and China soyoil markets and a surge in exports of the tropical oil in
the first half of the month. 
* U.S. soybean and wheat futures fell on Tuesday, with soy pressured by
technical selling and forecasts for good harvest weather, while U.S. wheat
supplies struggled to find traction on the export market despite trading at
four-year lows. 
* U.S. crude futures rose by almost $2 and Brent by more than $1 on Tuesday on
the prospect of a production cut by OPEC as well as on a weakening dollar and
news that Libya had curbed output after rockets hit an area near a
refinery. 
    
MARKET NEWS
* Stock markets around the world rose on Tuesday, ending near session highs as
investors bet that the U.S. Federal Reserve wouldn’t adjust its guidance about
how soon it would raise interest rates.
