CANADA STOCKS-Futures gain ahead of Fed meeting

Sept 20 Stock futures pointed to a higher opening for Canada's main stock index ahead of a two-day U.S. Federal Reserve meeting starting on Tuesday that investors are betting will leave interest rates unchanged.

December futures on the S&P TSX index were up 0.35 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

Canada's main stock index rose on Monday, led by financials and resource stocks as commodity prices climbed and amid uncertainty around the Fed's decision on interest rates.

No major economic releases are scheduled on Tuesday.
