VEGOILS-Market factors to watch August 17

The following factors are likely to influence Malaysian palm oil futures and other vegetable oil



* Malaysian palm oil futures rose for a second day on Friday, tracking overnight trading of

comparative oils higher, as a falling ringgit offered some support to the commodity.

* U.S. soybean futures dropped on Friday as favorable rains were expected to move into the U.S.

Midwest, finishing with a big weekly loss.

* U.S. crude oil edged higher after falling to a fresh 6-1/2-year low on Friday, posting a

seventh weekly loss amid concerns over global oversupply, while Brent futures slipped as the

front-month September contract approached expiration.


* Equities on world bourses ended the week lower on Friday after China’s currency devaluation on

Tuesday shook investors, though volatility declined late in the week, suggesting markets had

absorbed Beijing’s surprising actions.
