VEGOILS-Market factors to watch June 25(Tuesday)

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

* Malaysian palm oil futures fell to their lowest in almost three weeks on Monday as they tracked weaker soybean oil markets, but losses were limited by expectations of robust export data on Tuesday.

* Brent and U.S. crude prices rose on Monday, rebounding off a three-week low as record flooding in Canada's main oil-producing province threatened exports to the United States. MARKET NEWS

* U.S. Treasuries and global equities managed to claw back from steep losses on Monday, with the price of the 30-year bond turning higher late in the day, though Wall Street stocks still finished lower as investors remained nervous that the U.S. Federal Reserve could soon pare back its bond purchase program.

* U.S. new-crop corn prices fell for a third straight session on Monday as favorable growing weather across the midwestern United States reinforced the prospect of a record-large harvest this year.

* Copper and gold prices fell on Monday on fears of a liquidity crunch in China, while oil rebounded from a nearly slide to finish higher after record flooding in Canada's main oil-producing province threatened exports to the United States. RELATED NEWS
