VEGOILS-Market factors to watch Nov 14(Wednesday)
KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 14 (Reuters) - The following factors are likely to influence Malaysian palm oil futures and other vegetable oil markets on Wednesday.
* Malaysian palm oil futures recovered after falling to their lowest in three years on Monday, as a rise in Malaysian palm oil stocks in October missed market expectations and signalled a slowdown in inventory buildup.
* U.S.soybean futures rebounded from a 4-1/2-month low on Tuesday as bargain buying snapped a four-session slide that nearly erased gains from this summer's crippling drought.
* Brent crude oil fell for a second day on Tuesday over concerns about lower demand in a well-supplied market and as the United States and Europe grappled with fragile economies.
* World stocks fell on Tuesday, extending losses as U.S. stocks reversed gains on worries that the United States could fall back into recession due to looming spending cuts and tax rises if Congress does not act, and the euro weakened as Greece faced delays in winning more aid.
* U.S. natural gas hit a near one-year high on Tuesday, stoked by colder weather in the eastern part of the country which relies on gas heat, and palladium also rallied on fears of a supply deficit.
