(Open): US stocks opened higher on Tuesday, with the S&P 500 set to have a second straight day of gains.

The Dow Jones opened up 45.18 points or 0.27% at 16,883.92, and the tech-heavy Nasdaq also fared well, rising 50.17 points or 1.12% to reach 4,515.10.

Markets were lifted by positive data on US inflation and the housing market, and solid earnings from DIY store Home Depot.

Shares in the DIY chain rose over 4%.

US construction firms Lennar and KB Home each rose 3% after a rise in home construction in July.
