GDP Fuels Solid Market Opening

A better-than-expected report this morning on GDP fueled a strong opening by Wall Street, which is solidly in the green across the board.

In the first 20 minutes of trading, the Dow was up 52 points, or about 0.6 percent.

The S&P 500 and the tech-heavy Nasdaq were both up about half of 1 percent.

Thanks to yesterday's big rally, the markets are on pace to have the best July since 1939. So take that for what it's worth.
