CANADA STOCKS-TSX futures fall ahead of Bank of Canada rate decision

Sept 6 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index futures fell on Wednesday as investors awaited the interest rate decision from Bank of Canada and on concerns about Hurricane Irma, a powerful Atlantic storm, en route to a possible Florida landfall at the weekend.

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

Bank of Canada’s rate decision is expected at 10:00 a.m. ET. Trade balance data for July and labor productivity rate for the second-quarter are also scheduled for release at 08:30 a.m. ET.

Canada’s main stock index fell on Tuesday as investors pulled back amid tensions over North Korea’s nuclear program and Hurricane Irma.

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 up 0.02 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were up 0.16 percent.

Canada, Mexico and the United States made progress in talks to update the NAFTA trade pact, top officials said on Tuesday, a relief after repeated criticism by U.S. President Donald Trump, although the round did not delve deeply into the toughest issues.

Department store operator Hudson’s Bay Co reported on Tuesday a steeper-than-forecast quarterly loss but retail sales slightly topped expectations as new store openings and a favorable foreign exchange impact offset fewer shoppers and more sales promotions.
