Markets Open Solidly Up

Wall Street opened up strong today, possibly riding the enthusiasm of the surprise jump in February durable-goods orders reported by Commerce this morning.

In the first 15 minutes of trading, the Dow is up about 88 points, or a little more than 1 percent.

The broader S&P 500 and the tech-heavy Nasdaq are both up more than 1 percent.

Today's gains are so far offsetting yesterday's sell-off.
