Friday's Rotterdam vegetable oil prices at 1600 GMT:

US soyabean futures jumped to a one-week high on Friday after the US Department of Agriculture lowered its domestic production estimate more than analysts had expected. Corn futures dropped to their lowest level in more than a week on bigger-than-expected US production and inventory estimates in the agency's monthly crop reports. The USDA surprised traders in both markets by making larger than expected cuts to its estimates for the number of acres of corn and soyabeans that will be harvested this year. Wet weather early in the summer reduced the number of acres.
Malaysian palm oil futures fell further on Friday as the ringgit firmed against the dollar, pushing palm prices to fresh two-and-a-half week lows. The benchmark December palm oil contract on the Bursa Malaysia Derivatives exchange lost 2.6 percent at the end of the trading day, reaching 2,217 ringgit ($537.45) a tonne. "The market fell more or less because of the ringgit," said a Kuala Lumpur based trader. "People have also become concerned about the production side, and palm's closing stocks seem to be very high."
Spot basis offers for hard red winter wheat were steady to weak across the southern US Plains on Wednesday, with dealers easing bids following a light round of farmer sales on Tuesday. Additionally, light demand on the export market cast a bearish tone over basis levels. Farmers booked some deals to sell hard red winter wheat being held in storage bins when futures prices rallied to a 2-1/2 month high on Tuesday, a dealer in Oklahoma said. But marketing interest dried up as prices retreated from their peaks.
European wheat prices fell on Wednesday after hitting seven-week highs in morning trade as US wheat markets dropped and strength in other commodity markets including crude oil slackened, traders said. December milling wheat, the benchmark on the Paris-based Euronext market, closed (settled) down 1 euro or 0.5 percent at 178.25 euros a tonne, after hitting 182.00 euros earlier on Wednesday, its highest since August 14.
Wheat futures on the Chicago Board of Trade fell on Wednesday on technical selling, including profit-taking, after the spot December contract reached its highest in eight weeks, traders said. Fundamental news was lacking, although traders continue to monitor dry conditions in the Black Sea region and parts of the southern US Plains that could hamper winter wheat germination.
US grain futures on Thursday extended a setback from 10-week highs reached a session earlier, pressured by an influx of fresh supplies from US harvests and profit taking ahead of the release of highly anticipated crop data. Soyabeans also fell, snapping a three-day rally before the US Department of Agriculture issues monthly crop reports on Friday. Earlier in the week, prices rallied on expectations the USDA will cut its corn and soyabean production estimates.
