April 2 (Reuters) - Stock futures pointed to a flat to slightly higher opening for Canada's main stock index on Wednesday, after previous session's strong U.S. economic data boosted investor sentiment.

June futures on the S&P TSX index <0#SXF:> were up 0.05 percent at 0715 ET.

The index climbed on Tuesday on positive U.S. economic data and the U.S. Federal Reserve's defense of its stimulative monetary policy.

Dow Jones Industrial Average futures were unchanged, S&P 500 futures were up 0.10 percent and Nasdaq 100 futures were up 0.29 percent at 0715 ET.
