Markets Flat At Opening

Wall Street opened flat this morning, as banks await the results of the federal government's "stress test" due to be released today, as The Post's Binya Appelbaum reports.

In the first 15 minutes of trading, the Dow is down 13 points, or a meaningless amount below neutral.

The broader S&P 500 is down about the same but the tech-heavy Nasdaq is down about half of 1 percent.

Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke testifies before Congress's joint economic committee beginning at 10 a.m. today.
