CBOT soybeans touch one-month low, end firm as market awaits USDA data

CHICAGO, Sept 8 (Reuters) - Chicago Board of Trade soybean futures traded on either side of the prior day's close on Thursday and ended mostly firm as traders took positions ahead of a U.S. government crop report due on Monday, traders said. * The benchmark Chicago Board of Trade November contract ended 2-1/2 cents higher at $13.86 a bushel. * November futures touched a one-month low during the session as signs of weakening global demand and expectations for a big U.S. crop hung over the market. The contract hit overhead technical resistance at its 50-day moving average. * CBOT December soyoil was up 1.13 cents at 63.23 cents per lb. CBOT December soymeal ended down $5.60 at $405.90 a ton. * Analysts expect the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to lower soybean production in a monthly report on Monday. The average trade estimate forecast a 35-million-bushel drop from the agency's August outlook, to 4.496 billion bushels. * Brazil's 2021/22 total soybean crop is seen at 125.552 million tonnes, according to agriculture agency CONAB, up from the previous forecast of 124.048 million tonnes, but down from the previous year's harvest of 139.385 million tonnes. Soybean exports are estimated at 77.19 million tonnes, up from CONAB's previous estimate of 75.232 million tonnes. (Reporting by Karl Plume;)
