A sharp rebound in Chinese stocks also helped boost sentiment. The main indexes were on track to finish the week roughly where they started. The S&P 500 opened 22 points, or 1.1%, higher at 2,074. The Dow Jones Industrial Average jumped 214 points, or 1.2%, to 17,758. The Nasdaq Composite began the day up 60 points, or 1.2% at 4,981.
