KUALA LUMPUR: The following factors are likely to influence Malaysian palm oil futures and other vegetable oil markets on Monday.
* Malaysian palm oil futures fell to their lowest in more than five weeks on
Friday and recorded their biggest weekly drop in three, dragged down by steep
losses in crude oil after OPEC decided against curbing output. 
* U.S. wheat futures climbed to their highest in nearly five months on Friday,
supported by news that Russia, a major global wheat supplier, was tightening its
grain export rules, traders said.GRA/]
* U.S. crude fell more than $2 to a five-year low in Asian trade on Monday,
while Brent futures touched a fresh four-year low, extending a steep sell-off
after OPEC decided not to cut production last week, keeping markets well
* Gold prices fell the most in more than three weeks and the Swiss franc dipped
slightly on Monday after Swiss voters overwhelmingly rejected proposals to boost
gold reserves in a referendum.
