July 12 (Reuters) - Futures pointed to a higher opening for Canada's main stock index on Tuesday as easing political tensions in Britain and higher oil prices boosted the appetite for risk.

September futures on the S&P TSX index were up 0.58 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index rose on Monday, led by banking and consumer shares as investors cheered U.S. economic strength, Japan's latest fiscal stimulus, and Britain settling on a new leader following last month's vote to leave the European Union.

No major Canadian economic releases are scheduled.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were up 0.41 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were up 0.46 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were up 0.49 percent.
