LONDON, Jan 17 (Reuters) - European stock index futures pointed to a weaker start on Thursday, with investors avoiding strong bets before results from major U.S. companies and a slew of economic data from China on Friday.

At 0702 GMT, futures for the Euro STOXX 50, Germany's DAX and France's CAC were 0.1 to 0.2 percent lower.
