August 18 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index futures pointed to a flat opening on Thursday, a day after minutes of the U.S. Federal Reserve's latest meeting showed policymakers were divided over whether to raise interest rates soon.

The minutes, released on Wednesday afternoon, helped the index pare losses to end barely lower on Wednesday.

September futures on the S&P TSX index were down 0.02 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were up 0.04 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET. The S&P 500 e-mini futures were down 0.01 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.07 percent.
