KUALA LUMPUR, April 9 (Reuters) - The following factors are likely to influence Malaysian palm oil futures and other vegetable oil markets.
FUNDAMENTALS * Malaysian palm oil futures edged up to more than one-week highs in thin trade on Monday as investors pinned their hopes on stockpiles having eased further in March, signalling stronger demand for the tropical oil, although the ringgit's recent rise capped gains. * U.S. soybean futures rose on Monday, snapping a streak of three straight negative sessions, on technical buying and worries that delays in the South American harvest will further slow delivery of supplies from Argentina and Brazil, traders said. * Oil prices edged higher on Monday, lifted by gains in gasoline futures and strong selling of the spread between Brent crude and U.S. crude.
