Markets Slightly Up At Opening
Wall Street has opened slightly up but largely is hovering around even as the focus again is on Washington, as the heads of the first eight bailout banks are set to appear before Congress at 10 a.m.
In the first 15 minutes of trading, the Dow is up about 79 points, or about 1 percent.
The S&P 500 is up about 1.1 percent and the Nasdaq is up .8 percent.
Wall Street, after expressing disappointment yesterday over the lack of details in Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner's new bailout plan, appears to be cutting him a little slack today.
