VEGOILS-Market factors to watch Feb 22

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



* Malaysian palm oil futures retreated on Friday evening to give up gains made earlier in the

day as traders expected to see weaker February export demand data in a report on Saturday.

* U.S. grain and soybeans were roughly flat on Friday, stabilizing amid a lack of fresh

fundamental news following steep gains earlier this week tied mostly to investor short-covering,

traders and analysts said.

* Oil prices fell 4 percent on Friday, with Brent down a third straight week, as record high

U.S. crude stockpiles intensified worries that a plan to freeze world output will do little or

nothing to reduce massive oil supplies already in the market.


* Asian share markets got off to a cautious start on Monday as investors await a rush of

February industry surveys to take the pulse of the global economy, while sterling suffered on

concerns the UK might yet vote to leave the European Union.
