GRAINS-Corn rebounds from 1-month low as U.S. harvest pace lags

SYDNEY, Nov 19 (Reuters) - U.S. corn futures on Tuesday rebounded from a one-month low touched in the previous session, after the U.S. Department of Agriculture pegged the harvest pace below market expectations.


* The most active corn futures on the Chicago Board Of Trade were up 0.2% at $3.68-1/2 a bushel, as of 0145 GMT, after settling down 0.9% on Monday when prices hit a Sept. 18 low of $3.67-1/2 a bushel.

* The most active soybean futures were up 0.1% at $9.11-1/2 a bushel. In the previous session, soybean futures closed down 0.9%, when prices hit an Oct. 4 low of $9.10 a bushel.

* The most active wheat futures were down 0.1% at $5.06-3/4 a bushel, having closed up 0.9% on Monday.

* The USDA said the U.S. corn harvest was 76% complete, slightly behind market forecasts.

* The U.S soybean harvest was pegged at 91% complete, matching market forecasts.

* A CNBC report cited that the mood in Beijing was pessimistic due to U.S. President Donald Trump's reluctance to roll back tariffs, dampening sentiment among global investors.

* Chinese state media had said Washington and Beijing held "constructive talks" on trade in a high-level phone call on Saturday that included Vice Premier Liu He, U.S. trade representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.


* The dollar nursed losses against major currencies on Tuesday as receding hopes for a preliminary trade deal between the United States and China hurt demand for the greenback.

* Oil prices fell more than 1% on Monday, erasing much of last week's gains and tumbling alongside U.S. stocks on uncertainty over a trade deal.

* Wall Street's three main indexes on Monday barely extended the previous session's closing records as investors waited for concrete progress on U.S.-China trade relations after mixed headlines.
