VEGOILS-Market factors to watch April 9
The following factors are likely to influence Malaysian palm oil futures and other vegetable oil markets. FUNDAMENTALS * Malaysian palm oil futures fell to a two-month low on Tuesday after the ringgit climbed to a nearly four-month high, with prices further weighed by estimates showing production in the second-largest grower jumped last month. * U.S. corn and soybean futures rose on Tuesday as traders squared positions a day ahead of a monthly U.S. Department of Agriculture report in which the government is expected to pare its stocks forecasts for both crops, traders said. * U.S. crude oil prices rose more than 2 percent on Tuesday in a technical-driven rally boosted by a weaker U.S. dollar and forecasts for a draw on stockpiles of domestic oil products. MARKET NEWS * The dollar and euro fell sharply against the yen on Tuesday as hopes for additional stimulus out of Japan faded, while bargain-hunting on Wall Street lifted stock prices after three days of losses. * RELATED > CME trading outage sends business back to the pits > The boy is back?
