Jan 5 (Reuters) - Stock futures pointed to a lower opening for Canada's main stock index on Tuesday as weakness in China's markets continued to weigh on investors' sentiment.

March futures on the S&P TSX index were down 0.48 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

Statistics Canada is scheduled to report producer prices data for November at 8:30 a.m. ET.

Canada's main stock index fell on Monday, weighed down by financial, consumer and industrial stocks as a slump in Chinese shares and weak economic data spooked investors in the first session of 2016.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were down 0.71 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were down 0.70 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.66 percent.
