CANADA STOCKS-Futures gain as oil prices steady

Aug 8 (Reuters) - Futures pointed to a higher opening for Canada's main stock index on Tuesday as oil prices steadied after news of lower crude supplies from Saudi Arabia.

September futures on the S&P TSX index were up 0.21 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

Canada's main stock index rose on Friday to extend this week's gains, helped by higher oil prices, which boosted energy shares, and a lift to bond yields after data showed stronger-than-expected jobs growth in the United States.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were down 0.04 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were down 0.09 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.06 percent.
