May 24 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index was set to open modestly higher on Tuesday, with June futures on the S&P TSX index up 0.12 percent at 7:40 a.m. ET.

The market was closed for a holiday on Monday.

Canada's main stock index rose on Friday as financials and energy led broad-based gains, helped by a global rally in stocks as the negative impact of Federal Reserve rate hike speculation faded.

No major economic releases are scheduled.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were up 0.31 percent at 7:40 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were up 0.35 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were up 0.40 percent.
