>> right. that is something a lot of investors have been talking about playing to earnings season. still talking about the currencies. here is the board of the euro gaining today. the pound is gaining as once again, the key to u.k. in the eurozone. investors are weighing the bank of japan potential action later this week as well. we are watching the dollar index, as we have been. we see a lot more investors get short on the u.s. dollar. down 1/10 of 1%. take a look, you can find this on mi chart. this is the hedge funds it short on the dollar for the first time in almost two years. here, you see we just crossed over into that. not only have they been bearish, but this indicates perhaps a level of future harish this as well.

bill to or hp two. he then carried 200 dozen cardboard boxes signatures into the capital delivered to the governor. in more than 150 news bureaus around the world. david, back to you. is in retreat 500 today but the index is still well above february lows. is this a bear market rally or the start of another bull run for stocks? my first guest was predicting the loss for the s&p dow, paul ramsey's chief investment officer joins me live from minneapolis. let me ask you, what led you to change or call here? >> i think it is a high risk market. the fact is, the internal strength of the rally that has
carried on for 2.5 months is carried just far enough and has exhibited leadership that is really inconsistent with a bear market rally. anything could happen. in the last two weeks, we have seen a broadening out for the high data groups. whichand brokerage firms have been lagging badly throughout the rally, have finally broken out. at an internal statistics. you had 73% of stocks in the new york stock exchange trading above the 30 week moving average. almost a figure that never occurs in the contest of a cyclical fair market. i still think this is probably a better fort speculators than investors. i say that primarily because of where valuations are. the s&p 500 trailing 12 months of earnings or about 8650. that puts the s&p here at 2080 and 24 times trailing earnings.
yes, earningsn is on the s&p are down but they're not really depressed. obviously, energy and materials margins in earnings have been down, but margins for the entire s&p are still historically quite high. it is actually a pretty good one. we think stocks are still quite expensive. >> your flying by her instruments now. how has your portfolio changed since you were last on the show? have got a lot of latitude in the two tactical funds to shift equity exposure between 30% and 70%. the major trend index, i alluded to find by the instruments, that is one of the instruments, it is now mildly bullish. when that is the configuration,
indicators. is too high. in terms of the earnings impact, i think it is greatly overrated. i think it is also greatly overrated in terms of stock market leadership here at a lot of people will say, a weaker dollar, they will tend to favor the large cap multinationals relative to the small. one of the greatest -- greatest runs of all time in the late 1990's were the dollar is very strong. a lot of times, perceived economic impacts of a stronger or weaker in this case dollar can be overstated on market action. that is our belief. >> how is oil? we are seeing energy down on the s&p. setting the table -- setting the table today. how big of a weight is that, still? >> we think oil has bottomed.
the cyclical low in oil has bottomed. some may say we're stepping to a pullback. and not just oil. thee is a lot to say commodities have been one by one. industrial commodities started a bottom earlier than the stock market. it looks like it is for real. there is still a lot of that is a pretty good sign from a contrary in perspective. a lot of industry groups work has started to confirm the move in part -- in prices. we have not yet bought any groups and we refer to the models there. i think you probably will later in the year. in oil, 55 or $60 as a negative to the stock market by any means. david: thank you very much, doug. coming up, saudi arabia and

excessive governing and the can and will press ahead. the news sent stocks up the most in seven weeks. now is a former u.s. ambassador in saudi arabia and he joins me from washington. just to react to the proposal, how big a deal this is, how radically changes being proposed? >> it is radical but you have to understand this has been many years in the planning. when i was there in 2013, i knew that he started to put together a team of consultants to plan for what his brain would be. . , sopublic sector economy even though the oil prices had accelerated the need for change, the understanding of that was a parent many years ago and the
work of three to four years of work moving toward the development of a private sector economy. the man whous about celebrated the plan and proposes implementing it here? old, noted, 30 years the youngest son, but actively and i firstbusiness met him in 2011 when his father , in ae governor of riyadh -- he had many mentors in the government is clearly, the king is using him as an outreach to the youth of the country and 60% of the population, 30% or
younger, and to focus on the economy of the country and a move toward a private sector economy. >> bloomberg had about eight hours worth of interviews with the deputy and one thing that emerged was the interest in technology and the interest in the future of the country. how much of an outlier is he among the ruling >> in saudi does hes you see it? stand out as somebody different, pushing the country in a new direction? >> i think several things are going on here. i am reminded of the book, the kingdom, or you talk about the dealings inside the royal families. those who know don't talk in those who talk don't know. he was pressed to drive the economic changes within the country. there is some angst about the power as a young man that he has. it is very atypical for saudi arabia.
having said that, the other countries have shifted to a younger generation for leadership, notably the united -- and qatar. i have seen the shift happening in saudi arabia. does that mean the prince will leave that, but he will certainly be the centerpiece of the evolution toward the next generation. about theit more plan, i want to pull up a chart. you are seeing a juxtaposition of the price of brent crude. you see that going down in crude oilties of interest rate, going down, so clearly there have been motivating factors for this. can it be in a committed, the move away from oil? >> i do not think i can oversee the challenges associated with it. having said that, they had been modern economy.
as you know, they are adjusting, many of the subsidies, gasoline, focused on sets of these and electricity and water. in developing a private sector economy is, how do you affect and empower a young and highly educated class of young people to become entrepreneurs? you have a culture that does not celebrate failure like we do. there is no small business administration, no small business in government contracts. focused on entity entrepreneurs, and you do not yet have a culture of entrepreneurship. those of the challenges to deal through an money will not solve the problem. news that 200some plus troops will be sent to syria. here is a question about the region more broadly. we have seen isis with setbacks.
put this in context, the decision to send those troops, what decision could they make? >> in the near term, you will roll back isis. clearly from the president's statement, saying that the losses isis has not heard suggest that with a more robust footprint, we can accelerate that. it is only the first start. element, one is a rollback of isis in syria and iraq and the second one, reestablishing border security and internal security, these are for countries like kenya and nigeria and jordan, who face threats from isis, boko haram, al-shabaab. the other pieces you have got to win the war of ideas. that is where the countries of

have challenges. because we had a crisis in the eurozone and we are still working on stopping some of those. nevertheless, it really depends on what your business motives. if you have a large overhang of rateits, these interest environments not really help so the more deposits to have on your books, that is the case the moren banks, there are challenges that you have. would it be better if some of the post crisis rules were loosened? is this a contradiction, and why can't some of the post crisis rules be loosened, he goes banks are saying they are finding it difficult to make money in this environment?
>> it is actually difficult to make money in this environment, no doubt about that. --o not think these policies they are targeting different policy fields. -- we have asible supervisionbank and we keep this organizationally they separate. we also have different instruments. in the long run i would argue these policy fields are complementry goes monetary policy is profiting from banks and banks are profiting from stability. let me say that i believe that the present monetary policy stand is justified, even where we are with regard to inflation.
at the same time i would argue that we need to maintain strong supervisory approach for the banks. there are so many empirical studies out there which, rightly i think, state that the better capitalized the bank is, the more loans they give and the higher quality of loans they give and the crotch area is also true. theave these -- and contrary is also true. it truly is difficult for european banks. there is a disagreement brewing between the single resolution board and the european commission on the level capitals and lenders need to protect against failure, otherwise known as mrel.
necessary.is the european commission, the total loss absorbing capacity. where do you stand on this? >> i know both positions and at in end of the day, banks europe need to follow both standards. we need to find a way how these can work together in a non-contradictory measure. that, let's remind ourselves that you can only go after 8%solution funds of total liabilities have been dealt in. sufficient loss of capacity and i would stand for the argument of the single resolution board that at least we need a percent of total liabilities.
8% of total liabilities. >> some say the eu ruled for contingent that here -- debt. they're asking for legislation that is less ambiguous. what would you advise banks rainout? -- banks right now? we do advise them not to sell the securities before there's clarification on them? >> this debate is as difficult as the structures themselves and i hear a lot of confusing things in these discussions. one thing is very clear, at least to meet. -- at least to me. they need to be explained. the intention of everything that will be done is it is clear that they have a very special rules which need to be understood and need to be explained properly.
this is not for the normal investor, but purely for professional investors. nevertheless, we do like the idea of them because it does absorb loss absorbing capacity and banks. so it is a helpful instrument to have, depending on how you sell it and distribute it. sting the central banks, the fed meets this week to discuss the state of the u.s. economy. up next we'll take a closer look at what economist do not expect them to raise interest rates this time a lot. ♪

situated.eeting -- you canis a view always find an excuse not to hike. it does seem that the fed looks for those excuses. the vote is right around that if the u.k. stays in it will be a nonevent for world market. but if this mental financial center votes to leave the eu, then it could be systemic concerns, increase in market volatility, and there is this argument that the fed, if it were a coin flip, why not delay it for another few months ahead of that vote? david: the boj is more interesting. joe: i think that is the story. we have seen this impressive surge in the yen, although it that has come back up a little bit.
