Markets Open Slightly Up
Wall Street is trying feebly to extend yesterday's vigorous rally but has been unable to match yesterday's out-of-the-gate roar.
In the first 15 minutes of trading, the Dow is up about 28 points, or well less than half of 1 percent. Yesterday, the Dow surged nearly 6 percent.
The broader S&P 500 and the Nasdaq are both up less than half of 1 percent.
The odds are against a two-day rally: Major indices have not risen for two straight days since last month.
However, overseas markets jumped in response to yesterday's Wall Street rally and the momentum may carry over to the American markets today.
