The stock market got off to a tentative start this morning, but managed to firm up as the session progressed. Of note, news that the government would resume its activities likely aided sentiment and encouraged the bulls. At the close of trading, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was ahead roughly 143 points; the broader S&P 500 Index was up 23 points; and the NASDAQ was higher by 72 points.
