BEIJING - U.S. stocks opened higher Tuesday one day after the largest single-day sell-off since the 2008 financial crisis.

Three major U.S. indexes — the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the S&P 500 and  NASDAQ  — all opened more than 3-percent higher, after plummeting more than 7-percent on Monday.

Stock markets in Asia rebounded earlier Tuesday after a day in which investor worries about oil prices and a coronavirus outbreak led to a massive selloff.

Japan's Nikkei index rallied from an initial drop to a gain of about 1%, while Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index closed up 1.4% and China's Shanghai index rose about 2%.

European markets had similar gains in early trading, while U.S. futures signaled gains ahead of those markets opening.

Oil markets also advanced Tuesday, reversing Monday's huge losses that saw the price of Brent crude, the world benchmark, fall more than 24%.
