(Reuters) - Futures for Canada's main stock index fell on Monday, dragged down by weakness in commodity prices and fears of aggressive policy tightening by the Federal Reserve after data suggested red-hot U.S. inflation was yet to peak.

June futures on the S&P/TSX index were down 1.5% at 6:45 a.m. ET.

Oil prices dropped as a flare-up in COVID-19 cases in Beijing dented hopes of a Chinese demand rebound, while gold retreated from a one-month high scaled earlier in the session as U.S. inflation data lifted Treasury yields and tempered demand for safe-haven bullion.[GOL/] [O/R]

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index ended down 1.4% on Friday at 20,274.82, its lowest closing level since May 20. [.TO]
