Friday's Rotterdam vegetable oil prices at 1600 GMT.

Malaysian palm oil futures edged up to their highest in over two weeks on Friday to record their biggest weekly gain in four months, buoyed by a weak ringgit and firm overseas soy markets. Benchmark prices hit three-week lows on Monday before reversing course to follow a surge in Chinese and US soy markets, with robust export demand and a weakening Malaysian currency fuelling the rally. Prices have risen 3.8 percent this week, the strongest weekly rise since early February.
ICE Canadian canola futures dropped on Thursday, snapping the longest winning streak for a nearby contract in one month, under pressure from profit-taking and forecasts for much-needed rain. Central Saskatchewan and Alberta are dry and a trader said the chance of rain during the weekend and early next week would help plant development.
Wheat futures on the Chicago Board of Trade settled modestly higher on Thursday following a choppy, technical session, with short-covering and a softer dollar lending support. CBOT July wheat settled up 1 cent at $4.88-3/4 per bushel after dipping lower at the closing bell. The contract stayed inside the previous day's trading range. K.C. hard red winter wheat futures closed lower, with spot July posting a two-week low at $5.05-1/2. MGEX spring wheat closed higher.
Wheat prices in western Europe were higher on Thursday as the market edged away from the prior day's one-week low, with traders awaiting fresh indications on crops in the United States and Russia after adverse weather. The market showed little reaction to a purchase by Egypt of Russian and Romanian wheat in an international tender, which as expected showed Russian offers well below French rates following the lifting of a Russian export tax.
Export premiums for wheat shipped from the US Gulf Coast held steady on Thursday amid sluggish demand and some concerns about rain damage to southern crops, traders said. Demand for US wheat was light as less expensive supplies were available from several rival exporters, traders said. Egypt's GASC bought 240,000 tonnes of Russian and Romanian wheat in a snap tender for July 1-10 shipment. No US wheat was offered in the tender.
Spot basis bids for hard red winter wheat were mostly steady on Thursday in the southern US Plains as farmer selling remained slow, dealers said. But protein premiums for railcar wheat to and through Kansas City firmed late Wednesday, especially for the highest grades, reflecting concerns about low protein in the new-crop harvest amid heavy rains in recent weeks in Texas, Oklahoma and parts of Kansas. Wet conditions tend to boost yields but reduce protein levels in wheat.
