(Open): US shares marked time at Friday's open, trading in a narrow band around last night's closing high.

The Dow Jones was down 23.34 in early trading at 17,754.81, while the S&P 500 was up 5.42 at 2,066.65 and the Nasdaq was down 7.09 at 4,741.3 points.

The biggest Dow faller was Nike, where shares were knocked back 2.6% on fears the stronger dollar would hurt orders.

The Nasdaq had handset business Blackberry as its biggest faller, down by 6% after poor results.

Its main winner was Cerus Corp, which rose 10% on news the powerful US Food and Drug Administration approved its blood transfusion device for platelets.

The dollar was up against both the euro and the pound, at 81 cents and 63.9 pence, or $1.56.35.
