Nov 4 (Reuters) - Canada stock futures edged lower on Friday as uncertainty increased about the outcome of the U.S. presidential election.

December futures on the S&P TSX index were down 0.06 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

Unemployment, trade balance, export, import data are scheduled for release at 8:30 a.m. ET.

Canada's main stock index fell on Thursday to a three-week low as weaker oil prices sparked a sell-off in energy shares, but the financials and materials groups gained ground.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were down 0.1 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were down 0.04 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.07 percent.
