April 4 (Reuters) - Stock futures pointed to a higher opening for Canada's main stock index on Monday as oil prices reversed earlier losses.

June futures on the S&P TSX index were up 0.53 percent at 7:35 a.m. ET.

No major economic events are scheduled for the day.

Canada's main stock index fell on Friday, dragged down by a 7.6 percent drop in BlackBerry Ltd shares on disappointing earnings and a slump in oil prices that hurt energy companies.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were up 0.20 percent at 7:35 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were up 0.30 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were up 0.26 percent.
