Dollar and stock market divergence as Dow Jones opens in the red

The USD/JPY has managed to rebound back above 157.00, but the dollar versus Europe is a little less ebullient. At the same time there is rotation and divergence amongst the US stock indexes in early trading. The Nasdaq 100 opened higher and has mostly held all of those gains.

The index is currently trading at 38,540
