April 13 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index looked set to extend losses from previous session on Thursday, with June futures on the S&P TSX index down 0.15 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

Weakness in financial and natural resource sectors weighed on Canada's main stock index on Wednesday, offsetting a sharp boost in BlackBerry Ltd's shares after it won an arbitration ruling against chipmaker Qualcomm Inc.

New home prices index and data on manufacturing sales is due at 8:30 a.m. ET.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were down 0.19 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were down 0.29 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were up/down 0.27 percent.
