Aug 30 (Reuters) - Stock futures pointed to a flat opening for Canada's main stock index on Tuesday, as investors turn cautious a day before second-quarter GDP data is due.

The data is expected at 8:30 a.m. ET on Wednesday, and is likely to show a contraction of 1.5 percent.

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

Producer prices data for July is due at 8:30 a.m. ET

Canada's main stock index rose on Monday, but by less than its U.S. peers, as investors bet on rate hikes sooner south of the border and lower oil prices weighed on the commodity-rich TSX.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were up 0.01 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET. S&P 500 e-mini futures were down 0.01 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.18 percent.
