Nov 3 (Reuters) - Futures on Canada's main stock index edged higher on Thursday as oil prices climbed after an attack on a Nigerian oil pipeline helped ease global supply glut concerns.

December futures on the S&P TSX index were up 0.21 percent at 7:35 a.m. ET.

No economic data is scheduled for release.

Canada's main stock index fell sharply on Wednesday as tumbling oil prices weighed on energy shares and investors worried about disappointing earnings and a tightening U.S. presidential race.
