Markets Down Slightly at Opening
Wall Street opened slightly down this morning after some mixed economic news, as traders continue to digest what President Obama's health-care reform speech means to the markets.
In the first 15 minutes of trading, the Dow is off about 0.2 percent.
The broader S&P 500 is down about 0.3 percent and the tech-heavy Nasdaq is essentially flat.
Last week's new jobless claims dropped but the trade gap widened, according to data out this morning, sending mixed signals on the economy.
Tonight at 7 p.m., CNBC will hold a town hall meeting with Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, taking questions from CNBC's Erin Burnett and Steve Liesman, as well as viewers.
