Markets Open Down but Try to Claw Back

Wall Street is trying to make a recovery from its dreadful performance last week, which saw the Dow lose 6 percent of its value.

The Dow continued its plunge at the opening but is now rising back toward even.

In the first 15 minutes of trading, the Dow was down about 14 points, or nearly even on the day.

The broader S&P 500 is essentially even and the tech-heavy Nasdaq is up almost half of 1 percent.
