(Adds data on producer prices)

Nov 27 (Reuters) - Stock futures pointed to a lower opening for Canada's main stock index on Friday as oil prices fell on disappointing economic data from China and supply concerns.

December futures on the S&P TSX index were down 0.14 percent at 8:30 a.m. ET.

Canadian producer prices in October fell for the third consecutive month, dropping 0.5 percent from September on lower prices for motorized and recreational vehicles, Statistics Canada said.

Canada's main stock index rose marginally on Thursday, helped by gains for some heavyweight bank stocks ahead of their earnings next week and rising materials stocks, while energy names slipped in line with a fall in crude oil prices.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were down 0.01 percent at 8:30 a.m. ET, S&P 500 e-mini futures were up 0.07 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were up 0.25 percent.
