Markets Open Flat

Wall Street opened flat this morning, as the markets continue to digest first-quarter earnings.

In the first 20 minutes of trading, the Dow is down about 15 points, or essentially flat.

The S&P 500 is up by an equally irrelevant amount. The tech-heavy Nasdaq is the day's only mover so far, up about half of 1 percent.

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner testifies on bailout oversight this morning on the Hill, beginning at 10 a.m.

Here's a copy of Geithner's letter to Congress on the topic.

Check back for updates.
