May 30 (Reuters) - Stock futures pointed to a flat opening for Canada's main stock index on Tuesday as investors await economic data to assess the health of the economy.

Canada's current account deficit is expected to have increased to C$12 bln in the first quarter from C$10.73 bln in the previous quarter. The report is due at 8:30 a.m. ET.

Producer prices data for April is also scheduled to be released at the same time.

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

Canada's main stock index edged higher on Monday in light trading volume, as gains for several big banks that reported earnings last week offset losses for resource stocks.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were down 0.16 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET. S&P 500 e-mini futures were down 0.19 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.12 percent.
