* Malaysian palm oil futures hit a near four-month high in early trade on Monday, tracking overnight gains in soyoil on the Chicago Board of Trade and on forecasts of lower-than-expected output increases and end-stocks.
* U.S. corn and soybean futures weakened on Monday on forecasts for beneficial weather for crop development, traders said.
* Oil prices rose to two-month highs on Monday, ending the strongest month of the year for crude futures, boosted in part by expectations of U.S. sanctions against Venezuela’s oil sector and as supply concerns have waned in recent weeks.
* Retreating U.S. technology shares and soft European markets capped world equity gains on Monday, while the U.S. dollar fell to its lowest level in over a year against a basket of major currencies.
