After the fourth straight day of losses Monday, stocks rebounded slightly on Tuesday morning in anticipation of a speech to be given this afternoon by Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke at the International Monetary Conference in Atlanta.

Bernanke is expected to address the Federal Reserve's monetary policy as QE2, a $600 billion bond-buying program designed to increase the money supply, ends this month.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 54 this morning, while the S&P 500 is up 6.
