Markets Slightly Off at Opening

Wall Street is trading down slightly across the board this morning, as the markets express disappointment that Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner's comprehensive bailout plan -- which they were expected today -- has been delayed a day.

In the first 20 minutes of trading, the Dow is down about 32 points, or less than half of 1 percent.

The S&P is essentially flat and the Nasdaq is down less than half of one percent.
