Wall Street Up Modestly

Wall Street moved modestly higher at opening this morning, slightly goosed by not-so-bad news on home prices.

In the first 20 minutes of trading, the Dow is up two-tenths of 1 percent.

The broader S&P 500 is up about four-tenths of 1 percent and the tech-heavy Nasdaq is up a little less than that.

Futures were flat until the Case-Shiller home price report for July came out at 9 a.m., moving them higher. We'll see how the markets respond to the most recent consumer confidence numbers, which are due out at 10 a.m.
