good morning. time to face the music. volatility hits a four-month high as we're just one week from britain's brexit vote. central banks in focus. what to expect from today's fed announcement and the bank of japan which is under pressure to step up stimulus. hey, mr. deejay, is apple eyeing music production to stem its problem? it's wednesday, june 15th, 2016. ♪ >> good song.
5:01 am
did you -- >> you got to clarify that. >> it wasn't just banging it out. >> right, we made the band learn how to play this. >> and they played it very well. i didn't pick up on it, i very much enjoyed it either way. a wonderful service. i wanted to get a chance to pause and say that. long time. >> i know, i've been married two weeks. feels exactly the same. >> and i'm wilfred frost. >> u.s. equity futures showing a bit of a respite from the sell. keep in mind, we're coming off that. dow futures up 60. s&p up 4.5. and note yield preparing for janet yellen coming off a two-day fed meeting. remember, it's a press conference day.
5:02 am
we're going to get the predictions from interest rate hikes from the fed. as you can see, we're looking at lower yield, 153 on the ten-year. >> we're following on sara's words. let's have a look at europe right now, bouncing strongly today. somewhat of a relief rally. there was one poll overnight that gave a one-point lead, contrasting the leave polls that we've seen, albeit that poll last month was an 11-point lead. either way, european markets have sold off sharply that recent days there. bouncing today. you can see the german dax up 1.4%. illustrating this is a bounce. and the german dax down 1.37%. and the yen is weaker to delay the inclusion in the key marketing index. we'll have a live report from
5:03 am
shanghai despite that market doing well. again, a bit of a bounceback from the strong selling off in the last couple days. >> the only thing i would caution, the five-year against the u.s. dollar. we'll get to eunice in a bit. let's take a look at markets. oil has been under pressure. this has been a concern. wti dipping below $47 this morning. brent also looking at a 1% decline. we did get that build in terms of crude stocks. we'll get the official government report. about 1 million barrel build. the pressure has been on oil. >> yeah, four days in a row on oil declines. gains that we saw last week very much in the rear view mirror. we're close to 50. >> true. not super dramatic but under pressure. part of the story, a stronger u.s. dollar, at least has been in the past few sessions. let's look at the currency board.
5:04 am
the pound is higher after 1% moves to the downside over the past sessions, a bit of relief. a theme today. nothing extreme but half a point gain for the pound as it pushes towards 1.42. we've gotten several polls showing the leave camp. >> the pound certainly in focus. the broader dollar index at 0.6% yesterday. that's more on fears around the world, as opposed to expecting any hawkishness from the fed today. safe haven days. let's get back to the story that china where the markets are higher despite news that the msci does not believe that local chinese chairs are ready to be included in the bench mac. eunice yoon joins us. eunice. >> thanks so much, wilfred. the stock markets here have brushed off a surprise decision by the msc i.
5:05 am
even though many investors here were sorely disappointed. in a runup, the chinese union was building up expectations that china's stocks would be included in the premier market. but they decided that the stock markets over here weren't transparent enough to warrant inclusion. this is what the msci had to say. >> there has been a great pickup in changes being implemented by the chinese authorities. if we count on continued momentum in terms of changes, the issue could be resolved relatively quickly and if they are to the satisfaction of individual market participants then nothing would hold back the inclusion of the a-shares into our emerging market index. >> reporter: and in the past couple of weeks, the chinese regulators have been really trying to address many of the concerns of the msci. curbing trading suspensions, for
5:06 am
example. or widening market access for u.s. investors. but still, foreign investors have just not been feeling very comfortable with the level of access they've been getting to the market. and also many of them have expressed concerns about the government policy and approach towards the stock market especial after the heavy-handed access that authorities took last year in the stock market turmoil. now, the government has been trying to manage the fallout after the decision. the news ran editorials saying because of this decision, it's only a matter of time that stocks are including in the msci emerging markets index. the stoxx regulator the csrc weighed in saying any global index that doesn't include chinese stocks is incomplete. guys. >> eunice, thank you very much for that report.
5:07 am
eunice yoon live in shanghai. there's a good writeup on the website applauding msci for delaying once again because it's going to urge china to continue with reforms. meantime, jeffrey gundlach didn't hold back. saying central banks are losing control. comparing them to the republican establishment and donald trump. he says the fed is confused and that the confusion is spilling into investor psychology. gundlach also saying that a summer selloff is coming and it will be triggered around rhetoric around donald trump's election win. on brexit, double line ceo said that it will prevail. i think the common thread is we've got a lot of near term
5:08 am
risks and you can see that highlighted by the vix which we call the fear or nervous index. we're at a four-month high. we've seen a spike in a rapid move that people are paying attention to, almost more rapid than what is actually seen in the stock market. in declines in the stock market. so this is something to pay attention to. but it speaks to the short-term risks around brexit. we've got a fed meeting. a boj meeting. the question is, will it be device to be a long-term buyer and steer through volatility are those game-changing events. >> you saw the massive spike in the vix, you saw currencies react sharply. european equities reacted sharply last week. by haven't seen u.s. equities
5:09 am
respond. we've seen 1.5% decline for european equities. the dow was down and the nasdaq flat. it's not really happening. people believe there will be a immediate contagion across markets with the eurozone collapse the uk not in single currency or global financial crisis. so there's certain stocks that you have to watch out for in the u.s. but that hasn't so far sparked u.s. equity selling to the point we've seen in europe. >> but there are unknowns there. if we do see, for instance, the brexit vote going into the leave camp, what is the immediate impact on europe? everyone is going to wonder as gundlach hinted is this the beginning of the end? with u.s. equity markets. >> i think it can be political contagion from a brexit.
5:10 am
that probably takes a year, two years, three years. it's not immediate financial collapse of a single currency. let's have a look at what's on the agenda today. we get a pair of economic reports before the fed decision this afternoon. price index how at 8:30 eastern. prices expected to rise 0.3%. and call rate seen rising 0.1%. 9:15 a.m., look for may industrial production which is expected to decline on continued weakness. the fed announces at 2:00 p.m. amid projections. that's followed by janet general's news conference at 3:30 p.m. apple tech giant marching to a whole new beat. landon dowdy joins us. >> apple intending on creating its own content in-house. there's no limit, quote, to what

the company is willing to do with music, video and tv shows. and he joined apple in 2014 when the company bought beatz electronics. and it gave apple the resources to produce its own record label. apple created music with itunes, but the rise of streaming services such as spotify weighs on sales of individual songs. spotify has 30 million subscribers, apple music launched just last year has 15 million. the company is rumored to be looking at acquisitions such as time warner or netflix. sara, not all songs can be as echo as ben clad. >> i'm glad you liked that. i was going for a surprise fact 34. landon, thank you. it just says to me what we
5:12 am
learned about the big conference, apple wants to be seen as a services company. it's increasingly generating new revenues there. or landon's report, when it's working on siri. >> it continues to be seen more agency a hardware company. >> jury's still out on that one. more news in the world of music. twitter has made an investment in soundcloud. it allows users to upload music. the site has invested $17 million into the firm. soon, you'll be able to buy a tesla at nordstrom. tesla will display it's model in 2017. summer redstone making his first rare appearance in years.
5:13 am
the 93-year-old mogul and his daughter visited the cbs quarters. this comes as viacom chairman red stone was claimed to not being able to make decisions about the future. when we come back, hard stance on immigration and blonde hair? hard to tell whether we're talking about trump or brexit there? find out why political head liners here and across the pond may not be so different after all. that brings us to our twitter and facebook question, should u.s. equity investors fear a brexit? a crucial question. so far, u.s. equities not responding as european equities. get involved here on "worldwide exchange." we'll bring you results later in the show. much more discussion around that and the fed, coming up.

5:16 am
it is time for today's trade of the day. and it is fed-related, of course, many believe that fed chair janet yellen will dismiss may's very weak job report and stay on track when it comes to the plan to hike interest rates at some point. which shares should investors own if yellen maintains that hawkish interest rate, turns out telecoms and financials and
5:17 am
energy performed above second and third rate hikes. by haven't even had a second one yet. go to and check out pro. clearly, it makes sense if we're transitioning into an interest rate hiking, different markets and sectors can outperform. >> continued to smash recently. "the sun" is reporting that the latest brexit poll has remain 1.25% in favor of staying. the last poll published in may showing "in"camp has an 11.5% lead. this comes after the british vote to stay in the eu at 62%, a slight recovery from the lows yesterday, just below 60%. >> and on that note, uk finance
5:18 am
minister george osborne alongside labor chancellor alistair darling vowing that the hit to the british economy would be so great if britain votes to leave that he's holding a budget with cuts almost immediately. some saying the natural response a negative shock like it was in 2008, would be easing, not tightening up the budget. big banks including citi and goldman sachs plan to bring in traders to work through the night. reporting that they will have staff working or on call in london if results come in after polls close. jamie dimon of britain said if the vote was to leave the eu, the vote would be to have teams of people. of course, everyone trying to figure that out.
5:19 am
we're seeing policy numbers on call if banks go into a meltdown. that's a big question, wilfred, whether banks would respond, whether they'd hold an emergency meeting if the vote is to leave. >> now a different perspective on this. trump versus brexit. there have been lots of comparisons, not just because of the shared crazy blonde hair of the donald and the boris. let's explore the similarities. the first one does stem from donald and boris. both have a straight-talking nature. celebrity status. that endears them to voters far more than other politicians. second, their supporters tend to be older. also part of smaller businesses or self-employed. and third, there's a definite connection on the issue of immigration, albeit with some important nuances -- differences, excuse me. but i would argue there are some crucial factors that differentiate brexit and the
5:20 am
rise of trump. first up, free trade. brexiteers do seek free trade just as much as the remain camp does, they just seek it in a different way. different, too, trump's rise stems with elected political insiders. brexit is about unelected outers. brexit is about sovereignty, american sovereignty, when in doubt whether a clinton presidency or trump presidency. finally, trump's rise is new and recent. before the first incarnation of the eu back in 1951 there's even been an in/out referendum in 1975, and that was delivered by a labor government highlighting the extent and alongevity. lots of fun observations to make between the two.
5:21 am
if my eyes, no conclusions to draw from the uk vote. >> if britain votes to leave and the u.s. votes for trump, the common thread there is we're plunging into a world of the unknowns, versus the status quo, correct? >> i think that would be a fair conclusion to make if both events happen. my argument is i don't think there's any causality to the two happening. i think there's different factors in play in the upcoming elections. when we come back today, top political stories and trump's call to band immigrants. you're watching cnbc. 2% back at grocery stores and now at wholesale clubs. and 3% back on gas. kenny used his bankamericard cash rewards credit card to join the wednesday night league. because he loves to play hoops. not jump through them. that's the excitement

fed today. the vix, or fear index, is a way to buy protection against wild swings and volatility of stocks has shot higher. if you look at a chart of visa , you see there are short-term fears out there. >> u.s. equities have been quite resilient. certainly when compared to european equities. that's a question, we'll have to see if that reacts next week as we get closer to that brexit vote. as for summer fears, we'll have another fed meeting in july. nothing is going to happen today. if we just delay a month later, will they, won't they-type questions. >> and the cash-in from the stock exchange from ubs saying it could be an important signal if janet yellen does hint that the july meeting would include a press conference, which it
5:36 am
doesn't on the schedule. but if she does signal that perhaps it might that could signal that it's a live meeting inching towards raising rates. either way, the message is going to be key in terms of messaging, how cautious they really is. should be a big trade for the financials and the bond market. >> she might be talking about holiday plans? >> not so much that. i wonder what she'll say about brexit. we're a few days into it. there's clearly risk impact on the market. is it slowing volatility in the uk? unclear. >> interesting. that last speech she gave ten or 11 days now, she did mention brexit. saying it was one of the fears. she mentioned in a short sentence and didn't give the markets ammunition that perhaps they'd be looking for. right, as well as the fed today, we've got a pair of economic reports. the main producer price index is out at 8:30 eastern.

5:44 am
5:45 am
welcome back to "worldwide exchange." now to this morning's "must read" stories catching our attention. my pick of the financial times by martin wolf entitled "brexit imperils the confidence of strangers." he writes, brexit in sum might a big economic shock and not just for the uk. this is largely because of the fragility that precedes it. usually, he folk discussed on
5:46 am
one important technical factor which i think is worth noting. the uk current account deficit reached 7% of gdp this quarter. mark carney has always said before that our standard of living requires on capital inflows from outsiders. the brexit could immediately spot fear in terms of those wanting to invest abroad. if your currency starts falling. and its something that could be might immediate. you can get in a vicious cycle with a big cycle and currency falling. >> a tough one to sell to the electorate. >> a tough one to sell to the electorate. absolutely right. it's an interesting read from martin wolf, it's quite technical, quite opinionated.
5:47 am
>> i went to "the new york times." "why do terrorists commit terrorism?" it's by peter bergen, a national analyst at cnn. he's looked at more than 300 case of charged jihadist terrorism in the united states. he wrote that the easy explanation that jihadist terrorists are mad or bad prove simply wrong. around 1 in 10 have mental health problems, below the incidence in the general population. nor were they typically career criminals. 12% have served time in prison, compared with about 11% of the american male population." he didn't give any delusion, it's probably difficult to find out but he said they're generally motivated by militant ideology. they need to attach them to an
5:48 am
ideology to give them a sense of purpose. all of it is interesting to try to grapple with some kind of an understanding which you can't possibly do. but as the fbi tries to tackle this new threat of homegrown. >> a huge amount on this in the last interesting days. an interesting comment i saw if your twitter feed is saul about guns then you need more exposure. there hasn't been common ground to see serious action on both issues. we're approaching the top of the hour. that means the team is getting ready for "squawk box" in new york. joe kernin joins us with mawhat dumbing up. >> he's got something to say. >> i tried so hard to not read "the new york times." when i do the tease, i end up knowing from you, sara, anyway. >> i don't always go with "the new york times." >> i leave it on the very

bottom. so there's the "times," the daily news and then the f.t. >> i do always go with the financial times. >> that's third from left. >> we mix it up. >> i don't know, maybe i catch you on the wrong day. anyway, i don't know what janet yellen is going to say. i was thinking about something, i'm told that her comments are very important. her comments, again, and it just made me think, so for how many years now we've had to listen to those comments about the potential for a future rate hike, and we've had a grand total of one. i've listened to a lot of commentary from her and all of these fed guys, parsing every word. sometimes, they add a word. sometimes, they leave out a word. sometimes, they change a word. what's it mean? i don't know. it's meant one rate hike. it's probably not july.
5:50 am
now i hear it's not going to be september. maybe it's december. we're waiting for it and it's a commentary. >> it's even better, joe, than parsing words because you also get to parse dots today. >> i know, the dots may move. and we've had one. we've had one after all of this. you know what, it's kind of a sad commentary on just how weak everything has been. deflation is back. i thought we conjured that demon, but obviously, we didn't or we wouldn't have the negative rates. that begs the question how much of this slowdown of this malaise is due to central bankers in the first place. is it self-fulfilling? so, i don't know. >> or is it britain's fault. >> it's britain's fault. blame me. blame me. >> no i like you, i like faraug and boris. it's weird that the right in this country seem to be
5:51 am
pro-exit. i'm not reading what they say and deciding what to do. i don't know why. the whole idea of unelected bureaucrats in this country. >> i will see new about an hour and 20 minutes time. >> that's going to be the highlight of the show. >> i doubt that very much. dan rather is pretty cool you got him coming on.
