VEGOILS-Market factors to watch December 8

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

other vegetable oil markets.

FUNDAMENTALS

* Malaysian palm oil futures extended falls into a fourth session on Thursday,

hitting their lowest in nearly five months in the evening, tracking weakness in

related edible oils.

* Chicago Board of Trade wheat futures slid to contract lows on Thursday, their

fourth straight day of declines, on continued pressure from a Canadian report

that showed harvest in that country was bigger than expected.


* Oil prices climbed more than 1 percent on Thursday due to a threatened strike

in Nigeria and as traders cover shorts after sharp losses the previous day

brought on by an unexpectedly large rise in U.S. stocks of refined fuels.

MARKET NEWS

* Asian shares rallied for a second session on Friday as investors awaited

major economic data from China and the United States while marvelling at the

meteoric ascent of the market's new crypto-star, bitcoin.
