Markets Flat At Opening

The markets opened flat this morning in the first day following an all-April rally.

In the first 15 minutes of trading, the Dow is down about 35 points, or less than half of 1 percent.

The broader S&P 500 and the tech-heavy Nasdaq are both down less than half of 1 percent.

The S&P enjoyed its best month in years, climbing 9.4 percent in April. The S&P has soared 29 percent since hitting its most recent low on March 9.

Automakers report April vehicle sales one at a time throughout the day today; check back here on The Ticker as they trickle out.
