VEGOILS-Market factors to watch April 10(Wednesday)

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

* Malaysian palm oil futures ended slightly lower after hitting a near two-week high on Tuesday as fears over the bird flu outbreak in China and its impact on soybean prices outweighed hopes for lower palm inventory in the Southeast Asian nation, the world's No.2 producer.

* U.S. corn futures rose 1.7 percent on Tuesday as traders unwound bearish bets on the market ahead of a key government supply report, traders said. Soybean futures also rose in pre-report positioning, while wheat futures were mixed.

* Brent crude oil futures rose on Tuesday, posting their biggest gain since late December as a weak dollar and tame Chinese inflation data drew investors to commodities. MARKET NEWS

* Asian shares edged higher on Wednesday after a strong session on Wall Street overnight while the yen remained under pressure, with tensions on the Korean peninsula seen capping gains for riskier assets.

* Most commodities rallied on Tuesday as the dollar fell and China released data showing tame inflation, suggesting Beijing could maintain an easy monetary policy. RELATED NEWS

> Argentine soy price pulled up for second day by Chicago

> Bunge names new head for North American arm

> Canada ready for C$1 billion sanctions against US over labels

> Paraguay election hopeful plans to issue debt for infrastructure DATA/EVENTS
