(Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index futures inched up on Thursday, supported by oil prices after a report showed U.S. crude inventories fell last week.
The American Petroleum Institute, an oil industry group, said late on Tuesday that U.S. crude stocks fell by 7.9 million barrels last week, much more than the decline forecast by analysts.
March futures on the S&P/TSX index SXFc1 were up 0.06% at 7:00 a.m. ET (1200 GMT).
The Toronto Stock Exchange's TSX index .GSPTSE ended 0.30% higher at 17,180.15 on Tuesday.
