April 27 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index futures were little changed on Thursday amid concerns about Canada's trade relationship with the United States.

U.S. President Donald Trump said a renegotiated trade deal with neighboring Canada and Mexico was "very possible" but that if a "fair deal for all" could not be reached, the NAFTA treaty would be terminated.

June futures on the S&P TSX index were up 0.04 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

Canada's main stock index pulled back on Wednesday from a two-month high the day before, pressured by a plunge in the shares of Home Capital Group Inc and investor worries about Canada's trade relationship with the United States.

No major economic releases are scheduled for release in Canada.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were up 0.1 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were up 0.07 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were up 0.14 percent.
