Markets Flat At Opening

Wall Street opened flat this morning, as it digested new economic data and held its breath waiting for news on General Motors dealer closings to come today.

In the first 15 minutes of trading, the Dow is essentially flat.

The same is true of the broader S&P 500 and the tech-heavy Nasdaq.

This morning, the Labor Department said that consumer prices were flat from March to April of this year. Compared to last year, consumer prices have dropped the steepest amount since 1955.
