CBOT Trends-Wheat up 10-11 cents, corn up 1-2 cents, soy down 3-4 cents

CHICAGO, Oct 7 (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 Friday.

WHEAT - Up 10 to 11 cents per bushel

* Wheat regains overnight, rebounding after its biggest drop in nearly two weeks on Thursday.

* The CBOT's most-active wheat contract lifted above its 20-day moving average.

* For the week, the most-active wheat contract is poised to lose nearly 4%, its biggest weekly decline since the week ended Aug. 19.

* Ukrainian farmers have completed the 2022 wheat harvest, threshing 19.2 million tonnes respectively, the country's agriculture ministry said, down from 32.2 million tonnes in 2021. Farmers harvested 4.7 million hectares of wheat and the yield averaged 4.1 tonnes per hectares.

* A fifth vessel chartered by the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has left Ukraine's Black Sea port of Chornomorsk and will deliver 30,000 tonnes of Ukrainian wheat to Ethiopia, Ukraine's infrastructure ministry said. Ukraine has already shipped around 150,000 tonnes of wheat to Ethiopia, Yemen and Afghanistan under the programme.

* CBOT December soft red winter wheat was last up 10-1/4 cents to $8.89-1/4 a bushel. K.C. December hard red winter wheat firmed 10-1/2 cents to $9.75-1/2 a bushel, and MGEX December spring wheat climbed 11 cents to $9.73-1/2 a bushel.

CORN - Up 1 to 2 cents per bushel

* Corn rises overnight, after erasing most of the week's gains on Thursday, as harvest pressure competes with crop quality concerns in parts of the U.S. corn belt that could erode production.

* The CBOT's most-active corn contract found support above its 100-day moving average overnight.

* The most-active corn contract is poised to end the week flat, the fourth consecutive week of mostly sideways trade.

* U.S. 2022 corn production could fall to 13.839 billion bushels, according to IHS Markit, down from its previous prediction of 13.944 billion, with an average yield of 171.2 bushels per acre, down from 172.5 in its previous analysis, traders said.

* CBOT December corn futures were last up 1-1/2 cents to $6.77 per bushel.

SOYBEANS - Down 3 to 4 cents a bushel

* Soybeans eased overnight, weighed by harvest pressure and promising early yields across the U.S. Midwest.

* For the week, the CBOT's most-active soybean contract is poised for a decline of nearly half a percent, its third straight week of easing.

* U.S. 2022 soybean production could fall to 4.327 billion bushels, according to IHS Markit, down from its previous prediction of 4.378 billion, with an average yield of 49.9 bushels per acre, down from 50.5 in its previous analysis, traders said.
