(Reuters) - Canadian stocks looked set to open modestly higher on Tuesday, with September futures on the S&P TSX index up 0.1 percent at 0715 ET.

The index was little changed on Monday as a decline in shares of energy producers, as oil prices dropped, neutralized strength in mining shares.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were up 0.12 percent at 0715 ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were up 0.09 percent. Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were up 0.13 percent.

No major Canadian economic data is due for release on Tuesday.
