2:08 pm
the biggest number is not growing in terms of users. it does have over 300 million users. growth has slowed down quite a bit. but the pace of growth for users is anemic at best for this company. users in the last quarter were at 1%. is seeing it shrink to quarters before that. that is a week number. asnie: it is not as unuseful some of the other numbers. what can they find some way to monetize their user base? corey: they do. that is one of the bright signs. even if they are -- you grow the business two ways. you add more users and chad -- charge more for the ads. doing, whileem they are unable to add users which is a bad sign where the numbers are anemic you can see

2:11 pm
corey: this is a company where some of the metrics are getting better. but itfast as they were is an expensive stock even before these prices were out there in the news. it is hard to imagine this deal happening at a much higher price. hash out who is taking the underpants. thank you both. littletune in for live coverage of the most influential markets. we're talking some of the biggest names in including the ceo of credit suisse and the ceo of heiress management. this is rumored. ♪

bonnie: the federal reserve announced it is opposing tighter regulation on commodity holdings. it would boost capital. under the changes from say goldman and morgan stanley could see their lucrative romances with coal, middle, and oil become a more expensive. why is the federal reserve doing this? >> it has been a long concern that a bank could have a catastrophe dealing with the powerplant or some other thatcal commodity holding blows a massive hole in the balance sheet. the fed is concerned about safety and soundness of banks. they have been more concerned after the financial crisis. the main reason they are doing this. there is a concern that it is not appropriate for banks to be owning big chunks of physical commodities while also having huge trading debts that are -- desks that are buying and selling derivatives. it is an unfair trading

2:34 pm
have seen a lot of inflow into the broader commodity space. we have not seen positive this should the broad commodity indices in the last three years. assuming the numbers hold as they are going into the end of the year, this would be the first time that has happened. the appetite for commodities is picking up a little bit and the fundamentals that underpin gold give buyers a reason to buy gold. bonnie: goaltends to trade tends toly -- gold trade differently. how will that play out for the rest of the year especially if are looking for december rate increase? >> this dynamic is why i am so bullish on gold. the psychology of the market begins where we start looking at here comes another fed rate hike. what is the market going to do when the fed moves forward?
