Wall Street Opens Up Slightly

In contrast to recent days, the financial markets opened up this morning, albeit slightly.

On the one hand, October wholesale prices dropped by their largest margin in history. On the other, computer-maker Hewlett-Packard said it expects fourth-quarter and 2009 earnings to beat Wall Street estimates.

In the first 20 minutes of trading, the Dow is up about 45 points, or less than 1 percent.

The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq are also both up, though less than 1 percent each.
