Dec 6 (Reuters) - Canadian stock index futures were little changed on Tuesday as investors awaited October trade balance data, due later in the day, and the Bank of Canada's policy meet on Wednesday.

December futures on the S&P TSX index were up 0.06 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

Canada's trade data will give analysts a chance to see how exports fared at the start of the fourth quarter. Trade deficit for October is expected to have halved to C$2 billion, from C$4.08 billion in September.

The data is expected to be released at 8:30 a.m. ET.

Canada's benchmark stock index rose on Monday as strength in commodity prices supported the energy and materials sectors, while a fresh record high for the Dow Jones industrials boosted investor confidence.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were up 0.01 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were up 0.03 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.01 percent.
