US stock future still holding gains after US jobs data-check out the Nasdaq 100

The reaction in the FX and bond markets to the US jobs data seems rather at odds with stocks. You see the US equity futures are attempting to buck a rise in the dollar and right now they are all still in the green this afternoon. It is very unclear, as to whether that will be the case, when live trading resumes in around 30 minutes. The Nasdaq 100 future did make it back to price a reopening at 18k earlier, but it is off that level now and closer to 17,950. The index closed last night at 17,878. Personally speaking, it will do well to brush all this aside, when live trading resumes, given the increased risk outlook ahead of the weekend and what got the index back to below 18k last night.
