into the green. once again, another reason that piling intoe european stocks now. joe: very popular theme we've show.many times on this julia: as long as you're specific about what stocks you're talking about. it's interesting to look at what there.d particularly you're looking at the yield curve. you looking at the fatness of the curve. curve narrowness it's been thatve months heading into ecb meeting. that's going to be okay bondholders. not so great if you're talking about the banks. when you're talking about europe.ng curves in you can see what this chart is showing, you got two ten spread there in blue. financials index in white. they've tracked each other closely. flatter curve, not so great for banks. is, of course,on

there's 65 financial companies in the s&p 500, 60 of them gained and only five of them declined. that give you a sense of really how broad this advance was within this sector. shares which have been on fire helping to power the nasdaq. climbing by a third of one percent. we should mention as well, there are a lot of individual names including a bit, nordstrom. best dates since may of 2014. family is considering taking it private. trouble across retail is one reason why. nordstrom has been struggling foot traffic.g high.a is trading record after forecasting sales growth, that topped every analyst estimate. defying expectations that growth ist go down because china kind of consolidating at 6.5% growth. nvidia record high for 7.3%.

probably didn't miss james comey testimony, which seem to everyone was talking about today. other events on this so called super thursday. decision, the u.k. general election, which will legally be able to cover the 5:00 p.m. to talk about all of this now, editor ofexecutive inbal economics dan moss and san francisco, investment officer of merck investment. to start with you. not much interest in financial markets. >> it depends on where you are. moving.g is always let's start with the ecb. lot of expectations going into it. profit taking there after. for today, he's succeeded.
i doubt he'll succeeded in media term. it does suggest that trump's agenda is being stalled left and right. what that means he'll ruled more by executive order. did.like what obama the implication of that is, people are not going to make long term investments. reasons why real rates are not higher. in broad stroke. scarlet: what you do make -- start ofis is normalization. [indiscernible] necessarily have the committee with him. joe referred earlier to a debate in the ecb. that's true the debate is happening. don't let that thate obscure directionally. way.really only going one
he did recalculate that. ourearned in japan through reporting that within the boj, there are some deliberations recalibrate the way they talk about the exit. different, theis conditions are different. directionally, we're probably closer to going the same way major central banks. --rlet: axel >> another way looking at it. itsfed might be near end of hiking cycle. i say that, if you look at the in fund future, pricing about two rate hikes by end of the year. maybe 2.5. three. whereas in the euro zone, we learned they will not lower rates. tapering.is clearlyre improving and
the next step would have to be .apering term --edium [indiscernible] >> he talked about tapering for happened.re it the dollar rallied. one of the reason the dollar is weak it's not that things are u.s., it's so much in.been priced [indiscernible] wonder to what extent will the fed feel compel to on risk. along given that consumer spending slowed down and the inflation on isn't there? >> i happen to think the fed is hostage of the market. this year, the market delivered silver platter. now it wants to continue through. here.s a calendar event
yellen will retire. just like bar nar key wanted to result, the thing happened that happens. the central bank, the fed in into slowinghiking economy. i don't think anything will stop it. dependent.o be data they aren't going to notice it until they're way into a cyclical down trend. joe: look at 2015 and 2016. way ahead of the fed in terms of what they will do. in this year redicting between two and three three. they are pushing through their for unemployment poised to -- they're not going to boast it, poised to push through what most people consider to be definitions of full employment. i wish the conversation wasn't glass half empty. let's give the fed some credit we've been andre
compared where the other major central banks are. i wouldn't completely rule out the yellen exit. presidents have this habit of reappointing people first by predecessors. reagan thought about graduating it.of volcker, he didn't do reappointed greenspan. obama reappointed bernanke. not sure i'm convinced. uniformthere's less sentiment about this. joe: i want to wrap up here with you. you mentioned the fed possibly an economymuch into that doesn't necessarily justify. what does it mean for their trading environment if we're seeing this. shiftial bit of regime here. >> we've seen a yield curve. that.continue to see
it means they'll sell off part of their balance sheet. taking miniature steps. tighterhat means financial conditions. all of this -- all these things work in theory and the fed folks can talk about all the time. will tell youcial that they're not going to change the path if the mark tumbles. that happens when the gaps areds also, the widening and financial deteriorating. that means the fed will react to. the financial market will take stop whatever and the fed is planning in their tracks. joe: thank you very much to both you. executive dan moss and merck. julia: coming up, the house

democrat. i believe evidence keeps piling up there's been real presidential abuse of power. lindsay graham republican from south carolina that the -- he said, being crude, rude and bold is a would get the death penalty. it's not. that is a political state of affairs. of serious stuff questioning about the president did tell former fbi director doors including questions of whether he asked he triedty, whether squelch the investigation into michael flynn. investigators will be looking at that. partisan split in the reactions, makes important point. the law or what's criminal or not. it really is about politics and go the two sides want to from here. >> that's right. there's no -- comey testified has notresident trump personally under investigation,
evidence of direct collusion between him and russian government. that, thato know removes the issue at least for the moment, if evidence comes up it's ae legal arena, political question. the idea what he did wrong, the chatter about impeachment coming democrats. that's a political question. congress has to decide if what to level of high crimes and misdemeanors. i think that debate will continue. are not quite ready to go there yet. there's a trickle of suggestions. much.t: thank you so fired fbi director james comey testimony not outen thing on the agenda. the house voting on a dodd-frank currently under way. are- hr10 is what they voting on. elizabeth dex heimer . there's a big question

like repealing the volcker rule or making changes on the volcker rule. that is something wall street .ould like to see julia: you mentioned the limits risk taking, obviously politically sensitive. it's important the too big to fail. large financial institutions that get into trouble. how likely are we to see amendments pass the senate on those two things? >> sure. yous take the last one that mentioned. somethingn, which is that republicans has called a did not end too big to fail. it would allow bank regulators to step and unwind institutions. that is something that could technically could go through a budget process that doesn't require democratic support. that is something that does have
legs. republicansng that in the senate as well as the white house have expressed support for. the volcker rule ban, the other something full repeal of the rule that is seen not likely. bipartisanme discussion on both house and senate around making other minor tweaks. remains to be seen. i think any significant overhaul uphill battle. dexheimer,izabeth thank you so much. you can see the house voting is now. way talking about different amendments, they're talking hr10.passage of which is the dodd-frank roll back bill. ♪
