Markets Roar Out At Opening

In the first 15 minutes of trading, Wall Street is rising strongly following a world rally overnight.

Also, Treasury said the first $125 billion of the $700 billion Wall Street bailout/rescue plan will be heading out the doors this week, no doubt cheering traders.

The Dow is trading up more than 290 points, or 3.5 percent.

The S&P and Nasdaq are both up about 3.5 percent.
