CHICAGO: Following are US trade expectations for the opening of grain and soy complex trading at the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) 8:30 a.m. CST (1430 GMT) on Thursday.

NOTE: First notice day for deliveries against CBOT March futures contracts is Friday.

WHEAT - Down 7 to 9 cents per bushel

Wheat futures fell to session lows on disappointing weekly US export sales. Traders also booking profits a day after the CBOT May contract hit a one-month high.

The US Department of Agriculture reported export sales of US old-crop wheat at 167,800 tonnes, a marketing year low that fell below a range of trade expectations, while new-crop sales totaled 14,800 tonnes.

CBOT May soft red winter wheat last traded down 9 cents at $6.76-1/2 per bushel. K.C. May hard red winter wheat was last down 9-1/4 cents at $6.53-3/4 a bushel and MGEX May spring wheat was last down 6-1/4 cents at $6.51-1/4.

CORN - Down 5 to 10 cents per bushel

Corn futures slid to session lows after the USDA's weekly export sales data fell below trade expectations.

The USDA reported export sales of US old-crop corn at 453,200 tonnes, a marketing year low that fell below a range of trade expectations; new-crop corn sales totaled 145,900 tonnes.

CBOT May corn was last down 10 cents at $5.47 per bushel, with new-crop December last down 3-3/4 cents at $4.73.

SOYBEANS - Down 3 to 5 cents per bushel

Soybeans turned lower, retreating from early advances, on disappointing weekly US export sales data. Life-of-contract highs were set across the board in early moves. Market underpinned by worries about South American weather, including rains slowing the harvest in Brazil.
