CHICAGO, Nov 17 (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. CST (1430 GMT) on Thursday.

WHEAT - Down 6 to 16 cents per bushel

* Wheat sliding after the United Nations announced an agreement to maintain a Black Sea export corridor for Ukraine's grain, which will cut into already light overseas demand for U.S. supplies.

* On a continuous basis, the most-active CBOT soft red winter wheat contract fell to its lowest since Sept. 1 during the overnight trading session.

* The U.S. Agriculture Department on Thursday morning said that export sales of wheat totaled 290,300 tonnes in the week ended Nov. 10. That was near the low end of analysts' estimates that ranged from 250,000 to 550,000 tonnes.

CORN - Down 7 to 8 cents per bushel

* Black Sea export corridor deal also viewed as bearish to corn market.

* Weekly corn export sales totaled 1.170 million tonnes, topping market expectations for 700,000 to 1.5 million tonnes.

SOYBEANS - Down 10 to 12 cents per bushel

* Soybeans seen falling for the third time in the last four sessions on weakness in the crude oil market. Forecasts for crop-boosting rain in Brazil add pressure.
