VEGOILS-Market Factors to Watch October 12
12/10/2017 (Reuters) - The following factors are likely to influence Malaysian palm oil futures and other vegetable oil markets.


* Malaysian palm oil futures ended slightly higher on Wednesday, supported by a stronger export outlook and technical buying, though gains were capped by expectations of rising production in October.

* U.S. corn and wheat futures fell to one-month lows on Wednesday, a day ahead of monthly U.S.Department of Agriculture reports that are expected to confirm big crops and plentiful global grain supplies, analysts said.

* Oil prices eased on Thursday as U.S. fuel inventories rose despite efforts by OPEC to cut production and tighten the market.


* Wall Street stocks rose on Wednesday as the minutes from the Federal Reserve's September policy meeting merely confirmed expectations that interest rates would rise, while the euro gained on the dollar after Catalonia held off on moving to independence.
