CBOT Trends-Wheat, soy seen down 10 to 15 cents, corn down 5 to 10 cents

CHICAGO, Oct 13 (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 Thursday.

WHEAT - Down 10 to 15 cents

* Futures extend losses after tumbling on Wednesday, when the U.S. government estimated domestic wheat ending stocks above analysts' estimates in a monthly report. The government's forecast put stocks at the lowest level in 15 years.

* Iraq's state grains buyer is believed to have canceled an international tender to buy at least 50,000 tonnes of wheat with no purchase made, European traders said.

* CBOT December soft red winter wheat ended the overnight session down 14-1/2 cents at $8.67-3/4 a bushel. K.C. December hard red winter wheat dropped 13 cents to $9.57 a bushel, and MGEX December spring wheat was down 6-1/4 cents to $9.60-1/2 a bushel.

CORN - Down 5 to 10 cents bushel

* Futures weaken amid concerns about cutbacks in demand due to lofty prices and limited supplies, analysts said.

* Grain traders are watching outside markets after U.S. stock index futures fell after data showed a bigger-than-expected rise in consumer prices last month.

* CBOT December corn futures were last down 7-1/2 cents at $6.85-1/2 per bushel.

SOYBEANS - Down 10 to 15 cents

* Futures retreat after rising to a two-week high on Wednesday due to a surprise cut to USDA's monthly yield estimate, traders said.

* Profit-taking weighs on prices, along with U.S. harvesting and forecasts for a record-large Brazilian soy crop, analysts said.

* The U.S. Department of Agriculture, in a daily reporting system, said exporters sold 264,000 tonnes of U.S. soybeans to China and 242,000 tonnes to unknown destinations.

* CBOT November soybeans last traded 13-1/4 cents lower at $13.82-3/4 a bushel. (Reporting by Tom Polansek; editing by Jonathan Oatis)
