CHICAGO, Sept 14 (Reuters) - Following are U.S. trade expectations for the resumption of grain and soy complex trading at the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) at 8:30 a.m. CDT (1330 GMT) on Wednesday.

* CBOT December corn futures were last down 6-1/2 cents at $6.86-1/4 per bushel.

SOYBEANS - Steady to down 3 cents per bushel
