Nasdaq 100 leads US stocks higher again but futures slip in Asian trading

On Friday it was once again the big tech sector and the Nasdaq 100 that led the gains on Wall Street. All the usual suspects (AAPL, MSFT, AMZN, META, GOOGL) closed higher on the day, ensuring the index set its highest daily and weekly close since the very beginning of August. The Nasdaq 100 closed 341 points higher, at 15,529. That 2.25% rise on the day compared to gains of 1.56% for the S+P 500 and 1.15% for the Dow Jones. Overnight the Asian markets have not taken advantage and followed those US gains, as they have dropped back and that has undermined the Nasdaq futures. This might change, but as things currently stand the Nasdaq 100 is priced to reopen lower later today, currently at around 15,450
