Markets Open Slightly Up
Wall Street opened up slightly this morning, possibly bolstered by the not-as-bad-as-expected April housing prices report out this morning.
In the first 15 minutes of trading, the Dow was up about 20 points.
The broader S&P 500 was up about one-quarter of 1 percent and the tech-heavy Nasdaq was up about half of 1 percent.
April home prices in 20 key cities were down 18.1 percent compared with April 2008, but that was not as much of a drop as predicted, indicating the housing market might be bottoming.
