The stock market reopened, apparently without a hitch, after Hurricane Sandy forced a two-day shutdown of Wall Street.
Major U.S. indexes had a mixed opening on what exchange officials said could be a cautious trading day, perhaps marked by early volatility.
The Dow Jones industrial average rose 63 points, or 0.5%, to 13,170 shortly after the opening bell. The broader Standard & Poor's 500 index was up 5 points, or 0.4%, to 1,417. The Nasdaq was down 6 points, or 0.2%, to 2,981.
Investors have not bought or sold stocks since Friday. Aside from Sandy, which affected industries like insurance, investors have not been able to digest a host of corporate earnings releases or economic data. On Friday, the U.S. Department of Labor will release October's employment report, the last major jobs report ahead of November's presidential election.
