New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine rings opening bell at New York Stock Exchange
New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine (R), who left Goldman Sachs for work in government, rings the opening bell with NYSE chief executive John Thain at the New York Stock Exchange January 23, 2006. U.S. stocks edged up on Monday at the opening, with slightly lower crude oil prices, higher-than-expected Ford Motor Co. earnings and corporate deal activity giving investors some relief after the market's drop on Friday to nearly three-year lows.
