SYDNEY, Feb 8 (Reuters) - U.S. soybean futures held steady on Friday, but were poised to record their second consecutive weekly loss amid concerns over a prolonged trade war between Washington and Beijing.
* The most active soybean futures on the Chicago Board Of Trade were down nearly 0.5 percent for the week.
* The most active corn futures were little changed this week after two consecutive weekly declines.
* The most active wheat futures were down 2 percent for the week, the biggest weekly fall in seven weeks.
* Soybeans were under pressure as U.S. President Donald Trump and China's Xi Jinping are unlikely to meet, dashing hopes that the two sides were progressing on a deal to end a bitter trade fight.
* Market participants were waiting for a long list of U.S. Department of Agriculture crop forecasts and estimates due on Friday after key reports were delayed due to the 35-day partial government shutdown.
* The soy harvest in Brazil's second-largest producing state of Parana is well ahead of last season, with limited damage to the fields from drought, state agricultural research body Deral said on Tuesday.
* The dollar held near a two-week high on Friday, as investors rushed to the safety of the greenback following a setback in U.S.-China trade negotiations and broader worries about slowing global growth.
* Oil markets dipped on Friday, dragged down by concerns over a global economic slowdown although supply cuts led by producer club OPEC and U.S. sanctions against Venezuela provided crude with some support.
* Wall Street stocks sank on Thursday as worries that the United States and China would not be able to reach a trade deal increased concerns about slowing global economic growth.
