April 25 (Reuters) - Canadian stock futures were little changed on Monday after crude oil prices slipped as traders took profits while gold steadied.

Moves were muted ahead of a two-day U.S. Federal Reserve policy that starts on Tuesday.

June futures on the S&P TSX index were down 0.01 percent at 7:30 a.m. ET.

No major economic events are scheduled for the day.

Canada's main stock index edged lower on Friday, slightly reducing this week's gains as gold stocks dragged, while higher oil prices supported energy stocks.

Gold steadied on Monday as a retreat in the dollar helped arrest the previous session's 1.3 percent slide.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were down 0.11 percent at 7:30 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were down 0.08 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.13 percent.
