U.S. stocks opened higher Monday, as investors shrug off market expectations that the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates by 0.75 percentage point in September after Friday's surprisingly strong labor-market report. The Dow Jones Industrial Average /zigman2/quotes/210598065/realtime DJIA -0.43% rose 0.5% soon after the opening bell, while the S&P 500 /zigman2/quotes/210599714/realtime SPX -0.21% gained 0.4% and the Nasdaq Composite /zigman2/quotes/210598365/realtime COMP +0.25% advanced 0.3%, according to FactSet data, at last check. Investors are looking ahead to Wednesday's reading on the consumer-price index for a gauge of inflation in July, as they seek to assess how aggressive the Fed may hike rates to curb the soaring cost of living.
