RIO DE JANEIRO Oct 29 (Reuters) - Brazil's Usiminas expects domestic steel demand to fall slightly in the fourth quarter, Commercial Vice President Sergio Leite said on a conference call on Wednesday.

"Our expectation is for a slight drop in the volumes for the domestic market compared to the third quarter," Leite said, attributing the fall to the holiday season in December.
