Markets Open Higher

Wall Street opened higher this morning despite some more dismal news on the economy, including some eye-popping losses from General Motors.

In the first 15 minutes of trading, the Dow is up about 65 points, or a little less than 1 percent.

The broader S&P 500 is up just more than 1 percent and the tech-heavy Nasdaq is just above water, up less than half of 1 percent.
