CHICAGO, May 8 (Reuters) - Following are U.S. trade
expectations for the reopening of the Chicago Board of Trade
grain and soy complex trading at 8:30 a.m. CDT (1330 GMT) on
   WHEAT - Down 1 to 2 cents per bushel.
   Better winter wheat growing weather in the Midwest SRW region
and Plains HRW region lending some pressure in addition to
weight from improved weather prospects for spring wheat
plantings in the north. Consolidation trade ahead of the release

supply/demand reports. CBOT July last down 1/2 cent per
bushel. KCBT July last down 1/2. MGEX July last down 3/4. CORN - Down 2 to 4 cents per bushel. Improved U.S. corn planting weather seen over the next week to 10 days lending pressure, led by a decline in new-crop December. Positioning surfacing ahead of the release on Friday of USDA's May supply/demand report. July corn last down 1-3/4 cents. New-crop December down 4-1/2. SOYBEANS - Up 2 to 10 cents per bushel. Led higher by old-crop contracts due to shrinking supplies of U.S. soy, strong cash markets, slow farmer selling and continued strong demand for soy. Improved crop seeding weather in the U.S. slowing gains in new-crop November. July soybeans were last up 5 cents. November up 3/4 cent. Dalian July soybeans higher, soymeal higher and soyoil higher.
