Dow plunges nearly 600 points at opening bell before turning positive

The Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged more than 500 points at the opening bell on Tuesday after a tumultuous Monday that saw the single biggest daily points loss in history. At Tuesday's opening, the Dow was down 10 percent since its record high on Jan. 26, "putting it in correction territory," The Wall Street Journal reports.

By 10 a.m., though, the Dow had reversed its course and was up more than 150 points.
