Palm/Vegoils: Market factors to watch on Monday Jan 12


KUALA LUMPUR: The following factors are likely to influence Malaysian palm oil futures and other vegetable oil markets on Monday Jan 12.
    
FUNDAMENTALS
* Malaysian palm oil futures dipped for the first time in four days on Friday as
the ringgit steadied and investors took profits, but worries that more rain
could curb output helped the contract notch its third straight weekly gain.
 
* U.S. corn and soybean futures firmed on Friday, supported by strong export
demand, while wheat weakened slightly as traders evened up positions ahead of a
key U.S. government report on crop production and supplies, traders said. 
* U.S. crude oil prices slid in opening trade on Sunday evening while diesel
futures rose after refineries in Philadelphia and Ohio were hit hard by fires
over the weekend, curtailing production of fuels and demand for crude. 
    
MARKET NEWS
*  The U.S. dollar took an early dip on Monday as Asian investors caught up with
a benign payrolls report and the subsequent slide in Treasury yields, though
turnover was light with Tokyo on holiday.
