12:02 pm
if you look at the bloomberg, energy shares are leading declines down more than 2%. stocks, tobacco stocks, for example, are doing better. pepsi is helping to mitigate the losses as people rotate into what they see as more economically resistant. we see the buying of treasuries. that means record low yields. the 10-year yield going down to the lowest ever. matching some of the record lows we have seen in the bond market. shery: what about the biggest damages? julie: oil and energy stocks are poorly. as we see more of that risk off sentiment coming back into the market. oil is down 4.5%, $46.80 a barrel. matt: thank you. bloomberg to the

first word news, taylor with more from the newsroom. taylor: the director of the fbi says they will not recommend charges against clinton or her aides over violations of e-mail protocols that occurred during her tenure as secretary of state. james comey criticized the likely presidential nominee. not findgh we did clear evidence that secretary clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws regarding classified information, there is evidence they were extremely careless in their handling of highly sensitive classified information. mey said it was the bureau's judgment that no reasonable prosecutor would bring a case against mrs. clinton. saudi arabia has been rocked by three terrorist attacks in one day. blew himself up near the prophets mosque.

against hillary clinton over her use of a private e-mail server as secretary of state. james comey said that clinton and her aides were careless with the e-mails. our managing co-editor joins us from the duke energy center for the performing arts in raleigh, north carolina where there will be a donald trump event later today. mark, how do you think trump will react? he did not get with his camp would have liked. dark: he has reacted on twitter saying that the system is corrupt. not addressing one of the problems for republicans that the system is personified in the decision by james comey, who is respected by republicans. other places are now criticizing directly for engaging in a verbal indictment of hillary clinton, not a legal indictment. to suggests plan is
12:06 pm
hillary clinton did something wrong and should have been indicted given the evidence laid out by comey. was critical talking about the sloppiness in the handling of the e-mails. how do you defend against that. should you or or should you just move past? her: the things he charged with rhetorically, not legally, go beyond some of the things expected. there is almost nothing people thought about her conduct and how it was irresponsible and against the rules, perhaps against the law, that he did not lay out today. what is baffling to some critics comey decision is that did not say she did not do all of these things that were expected, she did something less . he alleged something more than what we knew about her conduct. yet he reached the conclusion that was something that would
12:07 pm
not constitute under past standards and indictments. republicans will face this choice. in the end, because of comey's standing, they will likely say she showed bad judgment. it might be something that she did not get indicted for, but she showed bad judgment. they do have comey's words to back them up. matt: how will this affect her campaign? mark: she had an event in washington and chose not to address it. she is coming to north carolina tonight.

that is comey's boss, the guy who gave him his job, at least, and mrs. clinton. the next time reporters are able to question her, this will come up. although the headline is that she will not be indicted, the fbi is not recommending that, there is plenty to chew over regarding her conduct. matt: how does the chain of command work? the president is his ultimate loss, but isn't justice in charge of the if ei directly? a 10 the fbi director has year term to bridge across administrations. they have a fair amount of independence. president obama is the one that comey in this position, and his widely respected. general,he attorney to, saying shets

12:26 pm
exposure to the u.k. and more broadly to the european union -- the outlook is somewhat clouded. the result of that vote, you can probably anticipate that will embolden many euro-skeptic parties in other countries, like rants and italy. we will proceed with caution with companies that have exposure to those geographies. all until the and uncertainty will cause opportunity. more companies with domestic u.s. influence, they stand to benefit. matt: thank you. iman brivanlou from tcw. this is bloomberg. ♪

from lisainsight abramowicz. yields,these record low some strategists are still thinking they might increase. we cycle and you've had this pretty progressively. for a bunch of years, strategists have been saying watch out commingled yields are going to rise, you have to go into unconstrained bond funds and benchmark yields went down and they went down and even this year, a lot of strategists were saying now, they are really going to rise, the fed will start increasing benchmark rates and they've fallen to all-time record lows. what could make them rise at this point and why exactly are they going down so low? isn't brexit come is it because people are thinking the fed will not hike again and told desk will not hike again until 2018?
1:09 pm
what exactly is the trigger? it's all these things. where is the good news here? matt: i heard a guest on surveillance this morning say the reason interest rates don't rises because interest rates don't work. it's just not working. central-bank policy is not working, so people flood into these safety assets. lisa: the rate that banks are trying to lend to each other, you've gotten $10 trillion of debt with negative yields come it is shocking and it defies investing logic. given where 10 year yields are 10japan and germany, u.s. year at 1.3% look pretty great. we've heard anecdotal evidence that the buying is coming from japanese investors, from overseas.
