CANADA STOCKS-Futures little changed as investors await big bank earnings

July 14 (Reuters) - Canadian stock futures were little changed on Friday as investors awaited second-quarter results from major U.S. banks.

September futures on the S&P TSX index were down 0.02 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

Canada’s benchmark stock index was near flat on Thursday for a second straight session, as gains by Manulife Financial Corp offset losses for interest-rate-sensitive shares a day after the Bank of Canada raised rates.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were down at 0.01 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were down 0.03 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.01 percent.
