May 12 (Reuters) - Stock futures pointed to a lower opening for Canada's main stock index on Friday as oil prices slipped on concerns over global oversupply.

June futures on the S&P TSX index were down 0.08 percent at 7:20 a.m. ET.

Canada's main stock index fell on Thursday, as a Moody's downgrade of Canadian banks struck financials, and frequent-flyer points operator Aimia Inc plunged on news its program would be dropped by the country's largest airline.

No major economic releases are scheduled in Canada.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were down 0.1 percent at 7:20 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were down 0.17 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.07 percent.
