KUALA LUMPUR: The following factors are likely to influence Malaysian palm oil futures and other vegetable oil markets on Tuesday Sept 5..
* Malaysian palm oil futures fell for a fourth straight session on Wednesday (Aug 30), ahead of a long weekend in Malaysia, due to expectations of a rise in inventories.
* U.S. corn futures fell on Friday on rising expectations of plentiful supplies from what should be a bumper Midwest harvest beginning later this month, analysts said.
* U.S. oil prices edged up on Tuesday as the gradual restart of Gulf of Mexico refineries following forced shutdowns due to Hurricane Harvey raised demand for crude, their most important feedstock.
MARKET NEWS * Stocks and the dollar fell on Monday while the Japanese yen, gold and sovereign bonds rose after North Korea's most powerful nuclear test to date dampened investor appetite for risk.
