Feb 16 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index was set to open lower on Thursday, after closing at a record high a day earlier, as investors assessed results of companies, including Bombardier and Encana.

March futures on the S&P TSX index were down 0.14 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index rose on Wednesday, led by gains for its financial services group after strong economic data from both Canada and the United States.

No major Canadian economic releases are scheduled.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were down 0.15 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were down 0.16 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.01 percent.
