Dec 23 (Reuters) - Stock futures pointed to a higher opening for Canada's main stock index on Tuesday, ahead of the country's GDP data due at 8.30 am ET.

March futures on the S&P TSX index were up 0.08 percent at 7.15 a.m. ET.

Canada's main stock index slipped on Monday as most energy companies fell on oil's downward march, with the retreat muted by gains for some of the country's biggest banks and its main railways.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were up 0.16 percent, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were up 0.12 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were up 0.16 percent. (Morning News Call newsletter link.reuters.com/nex49s; The Day Ahead newsletter link.reuters.com/mex49s)
