KUALA LUMPUR: The following factors are likely to influence Malaysian palm oil futures and other vegetable oil markets on Friday May 8.
* Malaysian palm oil futures fell on Thursday as comparative soy markets weakened and investors
fretted about a build-up in stocks in the world's No.2 producer, cutting short a rally that had
lifted prices up 6 percent in the past week.
* U.S. corn and soybean futures fell on Thursday, pressured by forecasts for wet and warm
weather in the Midwest that will foster early development of both crops in the coming weeks,
* Oil prices tumbled 3 percent on Thursday as a resurgent dollar erased gains from the past two
sessions, setting the market up for its first weekly loss in five.
* The global bond market rout slowed on Thursday as long-term borrowing costs retreated from
their highest levels in more than five months, helping to stabilize European stocks and kindle a
mild recovery on Wall Street.
