Palm oil/Vegoils: Market factors to watch May 12 (Monday)

KUALA LUMPUR: The following factors are likely to influence Malaysian palm oil futures and other vegetable oil markets Monday.
* Malaysian palm oil futures ended higher on Friday, following gains in overseas
soyoil markets, although a stronger ringgit and investor wariness ahead of
industry data capped the advance and kept prices in a tight range. 
*  U.S. corn futures fell 1.7 percent on Friday, retreating from a one-month
high after the U.S. Department of Agriculture raised its forecasts of global
inventories above trade expectations, traders said. 
* U.S. crude futures fell modestly in range-bound trade on Friday as the market
balanced support from a drawdown in domestic crude stockpiles against technical
sell points that have kept oil from rallying, while Brent was lower as traders
awaited developments in the Ukraine crisis. 
* Wall Street's blue chips set a record close in a lackluster session on Friday
while the U.S. dollar strengthened against the euro and Japanese yen after the
European Central Bank signaled it could deliver fresh monetary stimulus next
