Tuesday's Rotterdam vegetable oil prices at 1600 GMT.

Malaysian palm oil prices sank to their lowest levels in almost five years on Tuesday as declining crude and soybean oil prices pushed them down. By Tuesday's close, the benchmark November contract on the Bursa Malaysia Derivatives Exchange had shed 1.05 percent to 2,066 ringgit ($655) per tonne, its lowest since October 2009. Total traded volume stood at 40,824 lots of 25 tonnes, above the daily traded average of 35,000 lots.
US FOB Gulf soyabean basis offers firmed late on Monday as exporters pushed their bids to entice farmers to sell any remaining old-crop beans and book new-crop sales out of the South to help meet nearby commitments, traders said. FOB corn and wheat basis values were steady with exporters comfortable with letting lower futures uncover fresh business.
US wheat futures slid on Monday, giving back some of the strong gains made in the previous two sessions as fears of potential supply disruptions from the Black Sea region eased. New-crop corn futures dropped as a private US crop tour reported large yield potential, while soyabeans inched higher. Tensions between Russia and Ukraine influence the grain markets because the countries are major exporters of wheat and corn. Their conflict was viewed as less heated following talks among Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine on Sunday.
US corn and soya futures slipped on Tuesday as a widely watched crop tour projected bumper US harvests and traders expected more reports of robust crops, while wheat jumped on concerns about reduced supplies from Ukraine. Markets came under pressure as participants on the Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour were expected to find big yields on their second day of surveying fields.
Sugar futures dropped to multi-month lows on Tuesday as slow demand on the physical market and building world stocks weighed on prices, while ICE cocoa made its biggest tumble in 3-1/2 months on currency pressure. Coffee on ICE Futures US and Liffe were also lower. Soft commodities fell in line with the 19-commodity Thomson Reuters/CoreCommodity CRB Index, which dropped 0.5 percent to a 6-1/2-month low as the strong US dollar
Guar seed futures rose on Tuesday and are likely to extend gains in the next session as well due to concerns about production and on export demand amid thin local supplies. The August contract closed 3.55 percent higher at 5,830 rupees per 100 kg on the National Commodity & Derivatives Exchange.
