CBOT Trends-Wheat up 12-13 cents, corn up 8-9 cents, soy up 3-4 cents

CHICAGO, Oct 3 (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 - Up 12 to 13 cents per bushel

* Wheat firms overnight after Ukraine advanced on Russian occupied regions, escalating conflict following Russia's official annexation of four territories, raising doubts about continuing grain exports through the Black Sea.

* The CBOT's most-active wheat contract found support at the 200-day moving average overnight after climbing to its highest since June 29 on Friday.

* Farmers in Russia have accelerated winter wheat sowing after recent rain eased dry soil conditions in some regions, the Russia-focused Sovecon consultancy said.

* A fifth vessel chartered by the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), has arrived at Ukraine's Black Sea port of Chornomorsk and will deliver Ukrainian wheat to Somalia, Ukraine's infrastructure ministry said.

* India is likely to receive above-average rainfall in October, posing risks for wheat plantings, an official with the state-run weather office said.

* CBOT December soft red winter wheat ended the overnight trading session up 12-1/4 cents at $9.33-3/4 a bushel. K.C. December hard red winter wheat added 14-1/4 cents to $10.05-3/4 a bushel, and MGEX December spring wheat firmed 11-1/4 cents to $9.93-1/4 a bushel.

CORN - Up 8 to 9 cents per bushel

* Corn follows wheat higher overnight, supported by uncertainty in the Black Sea region and Friday's grain stocks assessment by the U.S. Agriculture Department that showed smaller U.S. corn stockpiles than expected.

* The CBOT's most-active corn contract climbed to its 200-day moving average overnight.

* Strength in corn is tempered by harvest activity across the U.S. Midwest, as analysts expect the USDA to report increased progress in its weekly report, due at 4:00 p.m. ET.

* CBOT December corn futures last added 8-1/2 cents to $6.86 per bushel.

SOYBEANS - Up 3 to 4 cents a bushel

* Soybeans trade just above even overnight, after diving on Friday when the USDA reported higher-than-expected U.S. stockpiles of soybeans.

* Gains were muted by expectations that the USDA's weekly report will show that harvest has progressed across the U.S. Midwest after a week of ideal weather for field work.

* U.S. exporters sold 110,000 tonnes of soybeans for delivery to unknown destinations during the 2022/2023 marketing year, the USDA said.

* The European Union's 2022 rapeseed crop is expected to reach 19.46 million tonnes, according to consultancy Strategie Grains, up from its forecast of 19.15 million last month and 14.5% above 2021.

* CBOT November soybeans last traded 3-1/2 cents higher at $13.68-1/4 a bushel. (Reporting by Christopher Walljasper; Editing by Andrea Ricci)
