Thursday's Rotterdam vegetable oil prices at 1700 GMT.

ICE Canadian canola futures fell on Wednesday, with the benchmark May contract hitting a three-week low on spillover pressure from allied US soy markets coupled with a stronger Canadian dollar, traders said. May canola ended down $12.70, or 2.7 percent, at $455.00 per tonne on volume of 11,002 contracts.
US soyabean futures fell for a third straight session on Wednesday as the end of a truckers' strike in Brazil and easing concerns about a farmers' protest in Argentina reduced fears of major South American export disruptions.
Malaysian palm oil futures dropped to their lowest in nearly a week on Thursday, backtracking from a rally that had lifted the contract to an eight-month top, after top industry analysts painted a gloomy outlook for the second half of the year. Leading edible oil analysts at the closely-followed Palm and Lauric Oils Price Outlook Conference in Kuala Lumpur say palm is set for a "year of two halves" - prices may rise over the next few months on tightening supplies, but could plumb six-year lows later in 2015 as output overwhelms demand.
Spot basis bids for hard red winter wheat were steady to firm in the southern US Plains on Tuesday, supported by thin farmer selling and scattered demand from flour mills, grain dealers said. Most merchandisers have rolled their bids to the K.C. May hard red winter wheat contract from the March contract, which is in delivery. Several locations made no change to their basis as they rolled to the May, in effect raising their bid because May is trading at a premium to March.
Chicago wheat futures fell to their lowest nearby price in five months on Thursday, pressured by the stronger dollar and huge global supplies. Soyabeans dipped after three straight losing sessions.
Arabica coffee eased on technical selling on Thursday after a rally in the previous session, while raw sugar edged up from around its lowest levels in nearly five years, pressured by expectations of a bumper crop in Brazil. Cocoa dipped, pressured by a stronger dollar and underpinned by concerns over supplies in second-biggest grower Ghana.
