CBOT Trends-Soybeans down 6-7 cents, wheat up 2-4 cents, corn mixed

CHICAGO, Sept 21 (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.

WHEAT - Up 2 to 4 cents per bushel

* Wheat hit its highest in 2-1/2 months, supported by fears of an escalation in the Ukraine war that could further slow Black Sea shipments after Russia announced a mobilization of reservists.

* The benchmark CBOT December soft red winter wheat futures contract rose above the high end of its 20-day Bollinger range during the overnight trading session. The contract also briefly topped its 200-day moving average for the first time since July 11 but failed to hold support above that level.

* CBOT December soft red winter wheat futures last traded 4-3/4 cents higher at $8.98-1/2 a bushel. K.C. December hard red winter wheat gained 4 cents to $9.67 a bushel, and MGEX December spring wheat was up 3-3/4 cents at $9.63 a bushel.

CORN - Mixed, up 2 cents to down 2 cents per bushel

* Corn steadying after rising 2.0% on Tuesday. Gains in wheat add support but market under pressure from expanding harvest in the United States.

* Resistance noted at the high end of the benchmark December contract's Bollinger range.

* CBOT December corn futures were last off 1/2 cent at $6.91-1/2 per bushel.

SOYBEANS - Down 6 to 7 cents per bushel

* Soybeans easing after hitting one-week high overnight. Signs of weakness in the cash market pressuring soybean futures but strength in crude oil limits the declines.

* CBOT November soybeans last traded 6-1/2 cents lower at $14.72-1/4 a bushel. (Reporting by Mark Weinraub; Editing by Kirsten Donovan)
