CANADA STOCKS--TSX futures near flat after oil prices drop

Oct 3 (Reuters) - Futures at Canada’s main stock exchange were little changed on Tuesday after oil prices dipped as investors took profits on some large positions that have built up in the last couple of weeks.

Brent notched up a third-quarter gain of about 20 percent, the biggest increase for the quarter since 2004, and traded as high as $59.49 last week, but has since fallen about 6 percent.

December futures on the S&P TSX index were down 0.02 percent at 7:31 a.m. ET.

Canada’s main stock index rose modestly on Monday as broad gains supported by the heavyweight financial sector offset the drag of energy stocks’ retreat with lower oil prices.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were up 0.12 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were up 0.05 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were up 0.08 percent.
