CANADA STOCKS-TSX futures flat amid mixed signals on U.S.-China trade dispute

Nov 19 (Reuters) - Futures for Canada's main stock index was little changed on Monday amid conflicting signals of a potential truce in the U.S.-China trade dispute.

Last week, U.S. President Donald Trump said he might not impose more tariffs on Chinese goods after Beijing sent a list of measures it was willing to take to resolve trade tensions.

However, over the weekend, deep divisions between the United States and China over trade and investment stymied cooperation among Asia-Pacific leaders, who failed to agree on a communique at a summit in Papua New Guinea.

December futures on the S&P/TSX index were down 0.03 percent at 7:00 a.m. ET.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX rose 10.62 points, or 0.07 percent, to 15,155.50, on Friday.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were down 0.42 percent at 7:00 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were down 0.43 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.48 percent.
