June 13 (Reuters) - Stock futures pointed to a lower opening for Canada's main stock index on Monday as oil prices fell, weighed down by gloomy economic prospects in Europe and Asia and a related strengthening in the U.S. dollar.

June futures on the S&P TSX index were down 0.18 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

No major economic events are scheduled for the day.

Canada's main stock index posted its largest drop since February on Friday, falling to a one-week low as energy stocks tumbled with oil prices and global equity markets broadly moved lower.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were down 0.35 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were down 0.37 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.45 percent.
