CHICAGO, Nov 10 (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 7 to 8 cents per bushel
* Wheat seen higher on bargain buying after the CBOT December contract dipped to a two-monthly low of $8.02-3/4 in early moves, just above psychological support at the $8 mark. A drop in the dollar after U.S. inflation data lent support ahead of the daily pause in trade.

* The Rosario grains exchange on Wednesday lowered its estimate of Argentina's 2022/23 wheat harvest to 11.8 million tonnes, from 13.7 million previously, warning it could fall further amid a protracted drought.

CORN - Down 1 to 2 cents per bushel
* Corn drifted lower in early moves one day after the USDA raised its estimates of U.S. 2022/23 corn yield and production. But a downturn in the dollar and fresh export sales to Mexico could lend support.
