The Star Online (04/02/2019) - KUALA LUMPUR: The following factors are likely to influence Malaysian palm oil futures and other vegetable oil markets on Monday Feb 4.
* Malaysian palm oil futures fell on Thursday, after data from a cargo surveyor showed exports grew more slowly than expected in January.
* The most-active U.S. soybean futures contract Sv1 reached its highest level since June on Friday on news of fresh U.S. soy sales to China, but the market pared gains as traders considered plentiful global supplies.
* Oil prices rose about 3 percent on Friday on upbeat U.S. jobs data and signs that U.S. sanctions on Venezuelan exports have helped tighten supply, then extending gains after weekly data showed U.S. drillers cut the number of oil rigs.
* Asia stocks were barely moved on Monday, staying near a four-month high after Wall Street's tepid pre-weekend performance, while the dollar was supported against the yen following strong U.S. jobs and manufacturing data.
