Nov 27 (Reuters) - Stock futures pointed to a lower opening for Canada's main stock index on Friday as oil prices fell on disappointing economic data from China and supply concerns.

December futures on the S&P TSX index were down 0.08 percent at 7:10 a.m. ET.

Producer prices and raw materials prices data for October are due at 08:30 a.m. ET

Canada's main stock index rose marginally on Thursday, helped by gains for some heavyweight bank stocks ahead of their earnings next week and rising materials stocks, while energy names slipped in line with a fall in crude oil prices.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were up 0.01 percent at 7:10 a.m. ET, S&P 500 e-mini futures 0.08 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures 0.25 percent.
