KUALA LUMPUR: The following factors are likely to influence Malaysian palm oil futures and other vegetable oil markets on Thursday April 9.
    
FUNDAMENTALS
* Malaysian palm oil futures inched down on Wednesday, retreating further from sharp gains made
earlier in the week as a firm ringgit and concerns over rising palm supplies stifled buying
interest. 
*  U.S. corn futures fell for the third day in a row on Wednesday as traders staked out
positions ahead of a government report that was expected to boost projections for supplies of
the grain at the end of the crop year, traders said. 
* Oil prices dived 6 percent on Wednesday after closing at their highest this year, as a mammoth
rise in U.S. crude stockpiles and news of record Saudi oil production scuttled talk of a
sustained recovery. 
    
MARKET NEWS
* Global equity markets rose on Wednesday and European shares hit eight-year highs on a $70
billion takeover bid by Royal Dutch Shell RDSa.L, while U.S. shares pared gains after the
largest U.S. crude inventory build in 14 years slammed oil prices.
