(Reuters) - Canada stock futures edged higher on Tuesday, along with oil prices after Iraqi forces took control of oil fields in Kirkuk and U.S.-Iran political tension heightened.

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

Canada’s benchmark stock index edged lower on Monday, giving up earlier gains, as profit-taking by investors in gold pressured shares of companies that mine the precious metal.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were up 0.04 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were down 0.04 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.09 percent. [.N]
