Dec 20 (Reuters) - Canada stock futures were higher on Tuesday as investors appeared to have shrugged off the impact of increased political tensions following Monday's deadly attacks in Germany and Turkey.

Investors will also assess wholesale trade data, which is forecast to have risen 0.6 percent in October after unexpectedly falling in the previous month. The data is due at 8:30 a.m. ET.

March futures on the S&P TSX index were up 0.17 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

Canada's main stock index gained for the third straight session on Monday, with gold miners and telecom shares climbing as political tensions rose and bond yields declined.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were up 0.19 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were up 0.21 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were up 0.16 percent.
