KUALA LUMPUR: The following factors are likely to influence Malaysian palm oil futures and other vegetable oil markets on Wednesday.
* Malaysian palm oil futures rose on Tuesday after the ringgit slumped to a
four-year low and on expectations of a drop in output of the commodity in the
No.2 producer this month, traders said. 
* U.S. soybean futures surged nearly 4 percent on Tuesday on strength in the
cash market as slow country movement and heavy export commitments left soy
processors scrambling for supplies, despite a record U.S. harvest. 
* Benchmark Brent crude closed down on Tuesday after setting a four-year low and
coming close to testing the psychologically important $80 a barrel support, as
traders continued to seek a bottom to a selloff that began in June. 
* U.S. stock prices held steady on Tuesday after the Dow and Standard & Poor's
500 hit record intraday highs for a fifth straight session, while the dollar
rose against the yen on the prospect of a delay in a planned sales tax hike in
