The following were Tuesday's Rotterdam vegetable oil prices at 1600 GMT:

Malaysian palm oil futures rose for a third day in strong trading on Tuesday after a jump in crude oil prices overnight and gains in competing vegetable oil markets. A stronger ringgit had little impact. By Tuesday's close, the benchmark November palm oil contract on the Bursa Malaysia Derivatives exchange was up 1.1 percent at 2,009 ringgit ($482), after trading in a range between 1,973 and 2,019 ringgit.
Palm and coconut oil prices on the European vegetable oil market were generally lower on Monday, in a market which was quiet due to Malaysian trading being closed for the National Day holiday. Many products were unquoted in Europe for most of the day.
Export premiums for US soyabeans were higher on Monday, rebounding after declining for much of last week amid better international demand and following gains in the CIF barge market, traders said. The US Department of Agriculture earlier on Monday said 125,000 tonnes of soyabeans were sold to unknown destinations - the fourth sale of at least 100,000 of soyabeans in a week.
European wheat prices dipped on Monday in the wake of a fall on US markets, pressured by a strong euro versus the dollar which hampers competitiveness on world markets. Benchmark December milling wheat on Euronext unofficially closed 0.1 percent lower at 173.00 euros a tonne after falling as low as 170.75 euros, equalling a 11-month low hit last week. In Chicago, wheat futures fell for a fifth straight session to hit their lowest in nearly four months, on low demand for US supplies on the export market.
Wheat futures on the Chicago Board of Trade settled mixed on Monday, with the most-active December contract gaining on a late round of technical buying and strength in other markets including crude oil, traders said. Spot September wheat, which is in delivery, posted the biggest advance in CBOT wheat. September deliveries on first notice day were within a range of trade expectations at 310 contracts, but the total was smaller than some had feared.
Chicago Board of Trade corn and soyabean futures dropped on Tuesday on concerns that commodity purchases from China will slow as the country's economy softens, traders said. Wheat futures firmed despite worries about the viability of US exports as investment funds covered short positions following a decline to the lowest in nearly four months on Monday.
