Nasdaq 100 opens lower ahead of data releases due out shortly

As priced into the futures markets beforehand, all the major US indexes opened lower today and that are still holding those losses ahead of some reasonably important US economic data due out at 2pm GMT. That is the latest JOLTS job openings number for August. This data certainly can have an impact on the stock markets and the dollar, if it is well wide of forecasts. Of course anything in line with expectations and that might not be the case. The Nasdaq 100 did reopen lower, commencing live trade at 14,744. The index closed yesterday at 14,837. The low seen so far has been set at 14,723. It is currently trading at 14,785
