The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) is ripping higher at midday -- and has closed its week-to-date deficit -- as Chinese stocks staged another impressive rally. Further adding to the bullish bias is optimism over Greece's recently submitted debt proposal, which Eurogroup President Jeroen Dijsselbloem described as "thorough." The Greek parliament is expected to vote on the deal today, ahead of Sunday's deadline with creditors. Finally, on the domestic front, wholesale inventories rose at their briskest clip in six months, oil and the dollar are lower, and traders are awaiting a speech from Fed Chair Janet Yellen.

Among the stocks with notable call volume is software firm Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADSK), where the contracts are running at 17 times the normal intraday rate. According to Trade-Alert, traders are buying to open the stock's out-of-the-money July 52.50 and 55 calls. At last check, ADSK has tacked on 0.1% at $52.51.


One of the top advancers on the Big Board is Yingli Green Energy Hold. Co. Ltd. (ADR) (NYSE:YGE), which up 11% at $1.01 -- but still down 57% year-to-date.
