VEGOILS-Market factors to watch Oct 23

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

FUNDAMENTALS

* Malaysian palm oil futures rose to their highest in more than three weeks on Monday, boosted by rising exports which investors said may help ease record stocks in the world's No.2 palm oil producer.

* U.S. wheat edged lower on Tuesday, snapping a four session rising streak which was triggered by concerns over shrinking supplies in the Black Sea region and dryness hurting crops in top exporters the United States and Australia.

* Oil prices fell on Monday as economic concerns and expected production and pipeline restarts weighed on crude futures and offset support from fears the turmoil in the Middle East may threaten the region's supply.

MARKET NEWS

* Shares falter, but U.S. stocks, euro gain

* Oil, copper slide on economic worries; wheat up
