VEGOILS-Market factors to watch March 21

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

FUNDAMENTALS
* Malaysian palm oil futures rose to their highest in nearly two years with dry weather expected
to limit output, resulting in falling inventories in Malaysia and as competing vegetable oils
moved higher.
* U.S. wheat futures edged higher on Friday, snapping a three-day losing streak on some
end-of-week short-covering, traders said.
* Crude oil slid for a second session on Monday, falling further from last week's 2016 highs on
concerns over a supply glut after the U.S rig count rose for the first time since December.

MARKET NEWS
* The S&P 500 closed in positive territory for the year for the first time in 2016, leading a
gauge of stocks across major markets to a fifth week of gains, its longest weekly run in more
than two years.
