Markets Indifferent At Opening

Wall Street is hovering around even at the opening today, despite Citibank's positive first-quarter earnings.

In the first 15 minutes of trading, the Dow is up about 12 points, a percentage gain of little substance.

The broader S&P 500 is down by about the same amount. The only mover so far is the tech-heavy Nasdaq, which is down about .7 percent, probably driven south by Google's earnings, which saw flat ad revenue.

In other market-related news, CNBC is celebrating its 20-year anniversary today and several veterans, such as Maria Bartiromo, rang the NYSE's opening bell today.

It was the first time TV cameras were allowed on the floor of the exchange.

The Dow is up 248 percent since CNBC went on the air in 1989.
