CBOT Trends-Wheat down 1-4 cents, soybeans up 8-14, corn mixed

CHICAGO, Aug 22 (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 Monday:

WHEAT - Down 1 to 4 cents per bushel

* Wheat futures ease on firmer U.S. dollar and a limited U.S. export sales pace. Continued grain shipments from Ukraine's Black Sea ports and news that India would not import wheat also tempering concerns about global supplies.

* Two more ships carrying grain have left Ukraine's Chornomorsk port, Turkey's defence ministry said on Saturday, bringing the total number of vessels to leave Ukraine's Black Sea ports under a U.N.-brokered grain export deal to 27.

* India has sufficient stocks of wheat and there is no plan to import the grain, the government said on Sunday.

* CBOT September soft red winter wheat futures last traded down 3 cents at $7.50-1/4 a bushel. K.C. September hard red winter wheat was last 2-1/2 cents lower at $8.42-1/4 a bushel, and MGEX September spring wheat was last 2-1/4 cents lower at $8.72-1/2 a bushel.

CORN - Up 2 cents to down 2 cents per bushel

* Corn mixed in cautious trade as a large U.S. Midwest crop tour surveys yields in major producing states this week. A firmer dollar and recent favorable crop weather capping gains.

* The actively traded December contract held technical chart support at its 20-day moving average in overnight trading but hit overhead resistance at its 50- and 200-day moving averages.

* CBOT December corn futures were up 1/4 cent at $6.23-1/2 per bushel.

SOYBEANS - Up 8 to 14 cents per bushel

* Soybeans firm on technical buying and concerns about late-season crop weather in the U.S. Midwest. Traders monitoring news from a Midwest crop tour this week that will report pod counts and gauge yield potential.

* The actively traded November contract broke through technical chart resistance at its 200-day moving average in overnight trading but hit overhead resistance at its 20- and 50-day averages.

* China's soybean imports from Brazil dropped in July from a year ago, while shipments from the United States increased, customs data showed on Saturday, as high prices curbed demand for South American cargoes.

* CBOT November soybeans were last up 8-3/4 cents at $14.12-3/4 a bushel. (Reporting by Karl Plume; Editing by Paul Simao)
