Mar 4 (Reuters) - Stock futures pointed to a marginally higher start for Canada's main stock index on Wednesday, with March futures on the S&P TSX index up 0.02 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

No major economic events are scheduled.

Canadian stocks retreated on Tuesday in a broad decline led by financial stocks including Bank of Nova Scotia, which reported a lower-than-expected quarterly profit.

At 7:15 ET, Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were down 0.31 percent, S&P 500 e-mini futures were down 0.33 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.29 percent.
