Nasdaq 100 opening gap-fill potentially stymied by US payroll report

Earlier this afternoon, it looked like a slam dunk; that the Nasdaq 100 would fill the price gap it left on Wednesday at 17,443. That prospect was mentioned in an earlier update here, before the latest US jobs report was released. In that update I did offer a caveat on that though and just as well it seems, because the Nasdaq 100 are now paring back their outlook for the opening and the Dow Jones has gone well into reverse too. The Dow is now set to open lower this afternoon. The Nasdaq 100 futures are still holding gains though, but it remains to be seen if the index can fill that price gap. The index is currently priced to reopen at around 17,415
