CANADA STOCKS-TSX futures lifted by oil prices

Oct 11 (Reuters) - Stock futures pointed to a higher opening for Canada’s main stock index on Wednesday as oil prices continued to rally on signs that markets are gradually tightening.

December futures on the S&P TSX index were up 0.10 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

Canada’s main stock index rose on Tuesday as the financial shares group, which accounts for about a third of the TSX’s weight, posted a record high close.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were down 0.02 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were down 0.05 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.08 percent. (Morning News Call newsletter link.reuters.com/nex49s; The Day Ahead newsletter link.reuters.com/mex49s)
