News Summary: US market reopens after 2-day close
WALL STREET BACK: The New York Stock Exchange opened trading without a hitch Wednesday after a historic two-day shutdown caused by Superstorm Sandy.

LITTLE CHANGE: Stocks barely budged for the day, with the Dow Jones industrial average and the S&P 500 each moving less than a tenth of percentage point.
