CBOT Trends-Wheat up 5-6 cents, corn down 4 cents, soy down 1 cent

CHICAGO, Sept 8 (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 - Up 5 to 6 cents per bushel

* Wheat moved higher overnight, poised for a fourth consecutive daily gain as traders weighed tensions over terms of the Black Sea grain corridor that has allowed Ukraine to resume shipments stifled since February.

* Too few ships are arriving in Ukraine to quickly clear mountains of grain built up over months of war despite a U.N.-backed sea corridor, threatening to drive up global food prices and leave the country's cash-strapped farmers struggling to plant crops, according to a Reuters report.

* Russian President Vladimir Putin warned of a looming global food crisis and said he would discuss amending a landmark grain deal with Ukraine to limit the countries that can receive cargo shipments.

* CBOT December soft red winter wheat futures last traded up 5 cents at $8.49-1/4 a bushel. K.C. December hard red winter wheat last added 5-3/4 cents to $9.07-1/4 a bushel, and MGEX December spring wheat lifted 11-1/2 cents to $9.11-1/2 a bushel.

CORN - Down 4 cents per bushel

* Corn eased overnight as traders position ahead of the U.S. Agriculture Department's monthly supply and demand assessment, due out on Monday.

* Analysts expect the USDA to cut corn production, with the average trade estimate dropping by 271 million bushels versus the agency's August report, to 14.088 billion bushels.

* Brazil's 2021/2022 total corn crop is seen at 113.272 million tonnes, according to agriculture agency CONAB, down from the previous forecast of 114.691 million tonnes, but up from the previous year's harvest of 87.097 million tonnes.

* CBOT December corn futures were last down 4 cents at $6.67 per bushel.

SOYBEANS - Down 1 cent per bushel

* Soybeans inched lower overnight as traders anticipated a trim to U.S. soybean production when the USDA makes its monthly report on U.S. production and global supply and demand.

* The CBOT's most-active November soybean contract found resistance at its 50-day moving average overnight.

* Analysts expect the USDA to lower soybean production, with the average trade estimate dropping 35 million bushels versus the agency's August report, to 4.496 billion bushels.

* Brazil's 2021/2022 total soybean crop is seen at 125.552 million tonnes, according to agriculture agency CONAB, up from the previous forecast of 124.048 million tonnes, but down from the previous year's harvest of 139.385 million tonnes.
