Jan 26 (Reuters) - Stock futures pointed to a lower start for Canada's main stock index on Monday as prices of metals, including gold and copper, fell after an anti-austerity party won elections in Greece, raising concerns over economic stability in Europe.

March futures on the S&P TSX index were down 0.15 percent at 7.15 a.m. ET.

No economic data is due on Monday.

Canada's main stock index edged higher on Friday and recorded a sharp weekly gain as investors welcomed moves by the Bank of Canada and the European Central Bank earlier this week.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were down 0.35 percent at 7.15 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were down 0.29 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.13 percent. (Morning News Call newsletter link.reuters.com/nex49s; The Day Ahead newsletter link.reuters.com/mex49s)
