Sept 27 (Reuters) - Stock futures pointed to a higher opening for Canada's main stock index on Tuesday as investors awarded the first U.S. presidential debate to Democrat Hillary Clinton over Republican Donald Trump.

Markets have tended to see Clinton as the candidate of the status quo, while few are sure what a Trump presidency might mean for U.S. foreign policy, international trade deals or the domestic economy.

December futures on the S&P TSX index were up 0.09 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

Canada's benchmark stock index fell in a broad retreat on Monday, tracking U.S. indexes lower as investors took a cautious turn ahead of the presidential debate and as energy shares failed to move higher with a bounce in crude oil prices.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were up 0.24 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET. S&P 500 e-mini futures were up 0.28 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were up 0.28 percent.
