The Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDEXDJX:DJI) is positioned modestly higher this morning, in the wake of Tuesday's triple-digit drop. In today's session, traders will have the chance to digest the latest durable goods orders, as well as the final estimate for first-quarter gross domestic product (GDP).
