June 19 (Reuters) - Canadian stocks looked set to open flat on Thursday, with June futures on the S&P TSX index <0#SXF:> up 0.01 percent at 0715 ET.

The index reached its highest level in six years on Wednesday and came within striking distance of its all-time high after the U.S. Federal Reserve shed some light on its plans to raise interest rates.

No major Canadian economic data is scheduled for release on Thursday.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were up 0.01 percent at 0715 ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were down 0.01 percent. Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were up 0.07 percent.
