Jan 6 (Reuters) - Stock futures pointed to a lower opening for Canada’s main stock index on Tuesday as the slide in oil prices showed no sign of easing.
March futures on the S&P TSX index were down 0.36 percent at 8.45 a.m. ET.
Lower prices for energy helped push Canadian industrial product prices down 0.4 percent in November from October and raw materials prices down 5.8 percent, Statistics Canada said on Tuesday.
Canada’s main stock index recorded its biggest single-day percentage drop in about 20 months, tumbling nearly 2.5 percent on Monday, as a deepening selloff in oil prices hit shares of energy companies.
Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were up 0.01 percent at 8.45 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were up 0.01 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.01 percent. (Morning News Call newsletter link.reuters.com/nex49s; The Day Ahead newsletter link.reuters.com/mex49s)
