CHICAGO, Aug 16 (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 Tuesday.

WHEAT - Down 8 to 12 cents per bushel

* Wheat lower for a third straight session on a firmer U.S. dollar and spillover pressure from lower corn and soybeans. A steady stream of grain shipments from Ukraine under a safe-passage agreement has also tempered supply concerns.

* Ukraine's deputy infrastructure minister said the country could export 3 million tonnes of grain from its ports in September.

* Consultancy Sovecon raised its forecast for Russia's 2022 wheat crop to 94.7 million tonnes from 90.9 million tonnes on Tuesday.

CORN - Down 4 to 8 cents per bushel

* Corn lower on technical selling and profit taking, and as cooler, wetter near-term forecast for dry areas of the U.S. Midwest lessened concerns about eroding crop conditions.

* The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) said 57% of the U.S. corn crop was in good-to-excellent shape as of Sunday, down 1 percentage point from a week earlier. Analysts polled by Reuters expected a 2-point drop.

* CBOT December corn futures were 7 cents lower at $6.21-1/4 per bushel.

SOYBEANS - Down 12 to 20 cents per bushel

* Soybeans down on improved near-term weather in the U.S. Midwest that may help the crop set and fill pods.

* The actively traded November contract held technical chart support at its 200-day moving average in overnight trading.

* The USDA said 58% of the U.S. soybean crop was in good-to-excellent shape as of Sunday, in line with estimates and down 1 percentage point from a week earlier.

* The USDA on Tuesday confirmed private sales of 228,606 tonnes of U.S. soybeans to Mexico for shipment in the 2022/23 marketing year.
