VEGOILS-Market factors to watch June 24(Monday)

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 a one-week low on Friday, tracking a selloff in global markets, although rising demand and a weak ringgit provided support and capped losses.

* Oil slid for a second day in choppy trade on Friday, with Brent posting its biggest two-day drop since September as the U.S. dollar rallied and traders feared slower oil demand in China and diminished investor demand in the United States. MARKET NEWS

* U.S. equities stabilized in choppy trading on Friday, while Treasury yields were on track for their biggest weekly jump in a decade as investors reassessed their positions in the wake of the Federal Reserve's plans to withdraw its economic stimulus.

* U.S. corn and soybean futures fell for a second straight session on Friday on forecasts for optimal crop weather in the Midwest along with softening cash values for corn, traders said.

* Crude oil extended its drop on Friday and copper and gold rebounded, but most commodities posted sharp weekly losses after tumbling in the previous session on bleak Chinese data and plans by the U.S. Federal Reserve to cut stimulus efforts. RELATED NEWS
