US stocks open higher following gains in Asia, Europe

By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) -- U.S. stocks are opening solidly higher as investors take their cue from big gains in Asia and Europe.

The Dow Jones industrial average rose 147 points, or 0.9 percent, to 16,646 as of 9:35 a.m. Eastern time Wednesday.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index climbed 17 points, or 0.9 percent, to 1,986. The Nasdaq composite rose 46 points, or 1 percent, to 4,857.

Japan's market jumped the most in almost seven years as investors hoped for more stimulus measures. Markets in China and Europe also rose sharply.

Netflix gained 2.6 percent, breaking a seven-day losing streak, after the company said it would bring its service to four more Asian countries next year.

Bond prices fell. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note rose to 2.25 percent.

Trump lawyers blast election probe after grand juror speaks
Former President Donald Trump’s lawyers in Georgia are criticizing the Fulton County investigation into potential illegal election meddling after the foreperson of the special grand jury seated to help the probe went public. Trump attorneys Drew Findling and Jennifer Little say they kept quiet until now out of respect for the process. But they tell The Associated Press that comments by special grand jury foreperson Emily Kohrs in media interviews seemed to implicate Trump. And they insist he has broken no laws. However, Kohrs hasn't publicly named Trump in response to questions about unidentified people the grand jury recommended for possible indictment. Trump himself has denounced the investigation as a “witch hunt.”
