Wall Street opens up, on track for strong week

August 15, 2014

NEW YORK (Reuters) – U.S. stocks opened higher on Friday, with major indexes on track for a second week of gains, as traders bet there would be no immediate escalation in the tense situations in Ukraine or Iraq.

The Dow Jones industrial average rose 31.14 points, or 0.19 percent, to 16,744.72, the S&P 500 gained 4.81 points, or 0.25 percent, to 1,959.99 and the Nasdaq Composite added 26.83 points, or 0.6 percent, to 4,479.83.
