5:02 am
japan the last 24 hours or so continuing into the u.s., 1.53. some selling pushing yields higher. see how we go. big government job's report on friday. >> absolutely. at least with the european side of things, the germ dax off t. the cac in france off half a percent. the ftse 100. the ftse mib in italy up by a quarter of a percent. little bit of strength in the banks kribtding to that. ibex in spain off by about.10 of a percent as well. as for what's happening in asia in overnight session you can see there. the nikkei in japan off by nearly 2%. the shen zen composite, mainland china ones up fractionally in
5:03 am
this trade. >> japanese stock market you can explain with the move higher. let's show you the broader markets asset check here. oil has been a pressure point for the markets lately and there we are, below $40 a barrel on crude. even though we're higher this morning, we're still stuck here at 39.75. >> remember yesterday when we talked about we saw strength in energy on this show yesterday morning and we saw it didn't last. >> we'll see if it lasts today as well. >> people have been saying it's because of the strong dollar. dxy is a broader look at the dollar against major trading partners including the euro heavily in there. it's at a six-week low. it has been declining. there's the euro. it's strengthening a bit against the euro this morning. strengthening against the yen this morning. that's a little better field what we saw yesterday. the dollar is also strengthening
5:04 am
against the british pound. coming up, but off of low levels. gold has been on the other side of the dollar trade. higher in the last few sessions coming off by about two bucks. >> breaking overnight, another executive joining the anti-trump list, meg whitman throwing her support by hillary clinton. whitman ran for governor of california in 2010 as a republican urging other republicans to reject trump who she says is, quote, unquote, reckless and uninformed on critical issues. she rals added trump has exploitexploit anger, grievance, xenophobia, including trump refusing to endorse paul ray yan in the gop primary and our own john harwood reporting on strange relations inside of the donald trump camp. >> that brings us to our twitter question of the day. we want to hear from you on
5:05 am
this. long time republican now backing clinton, so which candidate will be better for business, donald trump who is a businessman himself or hillary clinton? weigh in and we'll bring you the results later in the show. not to ruin things, but hillary clinton has a pretty sizable lead in the early going. >> we'll say that so go in, go to facebook, go to twitter. vote. let us know what you think. right now it seems as though donald trump is falling behind in the early parts of our very unscientific poll. >> the only thing i would point out on the meg whitman story, potentially not a surprise. she came out several months ago calling donald trump a demagogue. in the "new york times" piece that says she's backing her, it does say clinton specifically courted her, went after her, made a phone call. you have to wonder who else hillary clinton is going after. any prominent republicans using the trump opportunity that could be a story.
5:06 am
>> absolutely. how much times have we reported on this idea that silicon valley executives generally speaking many silicon valley execs comes out on the side of hillary clinton. we'll see if anybody can sway that particular scale. >> absolutely. on economic frontings news to tell you about here, atlanta fed president dennis lockhart saying he will not rule out an increase. speaking exclusively with the closing bell. >> at this point, i don't rule out a rate increase at the next mee meeting or later in the year. we'll have to wait and see how the data come in. the situation is maybe a little bit ambiguous, but i think i can imagine conditions in which we could have a rate hike. >> he added he would like to see stronger economic conditions. that would justify an increase. he's not a voting member on the
5:07 am
fed this year, but he is inside the meetings and inside the discussions. it gives you another sense and flavor that the fed is going data independent. >> you have at the new york fed saying things should be live going forward. you have lockhart saying the same kind of thing. >> market doesn't believe them. look at the dollar. >> you get the idea the policymakers are saying this to convey some resemblance of it. keeps their option there. and then they can say -- you can't say we didn't warn you. >> it will be data. we'll watch the jo cbs report. >> speaking of those agenda type items let's move to today's wall street agenda. on the of earnings coming up here. the july report like sar have a said out. forecast call for increase of 178,000 in private payrolls. 10:00 a.m. eastern we get the

5:32 am
composite up by quarter of 1%. as one the shang zen composite. however as you keep pointing out a yen a huge part of the story. the nikkei in japan that benchmark stock index off 2%. >> they hate the stronger yen surged 1.5%. as for the broader markets you want to know why the mood has changed. wti crude is back below $40 a barrel. oil has been steadily falling. stocks held up, now we break below $40 a barrel. it is stronger this morning. still holding below 40. brent the international benchmark above 42.06. 10-year treasury note yield. into heavy three days of data. we'll get a read on services this morning. also on the private sector employment ahead of the big jobs report on friday. the 10-year treasury yield at 1.53. barely moving.
5:33 am

weakness. >> it has been a big mover in both directions. now to financials. we have a cnbc exclusive this morning with j.p. morgan consumer and community banking ceo. here's wilfred with gordon smith. >> reporter: gordon, great to have you with us. >> thank you. >> let's get into your area of experti expertise. the last set of results blow out growth. are you taking more risks than normal. >> not really. we're operating completely within our prescribed credit range, but the economy, i'm just much more optimistic about the economy than some of the rhetoric you hear. home values are progressively improving across the country which is really a positive for the consumer. as we look across the various income segments you see employments improving. it's a much more positive picture than you would typically get if you listened to the tv.
5:37 am
>> to cnbc every day. if we look across the whole year, has that been true throughout because there's been big macro concerns. has the consumer flickered in line with those or does it plow on regardless. >> actually if we go back into the first half of last year, we've seen a very steady gradual improvement in the consumer. and yes the events people are bay ware of them, but if you've got strong job growth and home values improving, that tends to be the biggest driver of consumer sentiment here. >> if we talk about low interest rates, we know low interest rates are not ideal for the bank's bottom line if you outline it's not in fact that bad because the volume shoots up even if the pricing doesn't. >> in a way we try to think about this is we can't impact rates. and almost everyone who trying to predict where rates are going has been wrong over the last
5:38 am
number of years. i would say everyone. so what we tried to do is just really focus on the strategy of being the best bank for customers to do business with. focus on the customer experience. and you can see that in all of our metrics. when we look at retention levels of customers, they're the best we've ever seen since we began measuring them a decade and half ago. >> how many branches have you gotten today across the country. >> today we're about 5400, plus or minus, very hard to say where we'll be in ten years. it's something we monitor closely. we tell people we have 154 branches because it's what our customers want. we have fabulous people. you'll meet some of them here over the course of the afternoon. amazing people serving our customers. 98% of checking accounts are open in bank branches today. >> a bigger question about the way your part of the business fits in. mr. dimon is very clear about
5:39 am
the benefits of being a big bank. i can see the links. corporate clients. if necessary the consumer part of the business would operate fine on its own, would it not? the chase part particularly. >> we reconstructed the environment. if we look at where we've been over the last eight or ten years. the configuration we have served us extremely well during the worst economic downturn in three generations and here we are in a much better economy and the model we have is working extremely well. the relationships that we have with the asset management business and the commercial bank, all of which you see is -- is that his harley davidson i hear starting up behind me. >> if we look at the relationship of their customers and their transactions in the branches it's a very powerful energy. >> thank you for joining us.
5:40 am
>> shares of j.p. morgan down 7% over the last year, but up 4% in the last month. time for the top trending stories of the morning. instagram now taking on snapchat. did you see this? the social platform rolling out a stories feature like snapchat stories. instagram stories will allow users to string together mul multiple videos. after 24 houshsz the story disappear sgls sounds so familiar. wonder where that came from. >> certainly a snapchat feature. >> you're a snapper. >> you're a snapchater. >> i'm ls an instagramer. so instagram photos are ones that are meant to the last in time. they're great. you can't criticize them that much. >> you produce your instagram photos very well. they're always very well staged. it's for commentary. snapchat is just whatever. >> it disappeared. >> so instagram is using did 100
5:41 am
of millions of users to try to tap into that. >> you are a social media queen. >> i'm trying. >> sticking on that theme, look at this one, italian prime minster matteo renzi who julia just spoke to is taking to twitter against turkish parking light erdogan, coming after lashing out at the justice system for targeting his son. calling the italian judges to focus the attention on the mafia there instead. erdogan saying the issue with his son could tarnish italy and turkey's relationship, but then renzi shooting back in twitter in italian saying in this country, judges respond to laws and the italian constitution, not to the turkish president. it's called the rule of law. so an interesting battle on social media over what's happening with italy and tuturk >> it's not just leaders in this
5:42 am
can country. >> bit coin plunging after being hacked. hackers stealing more than 119 bit coins. that's worth 172 million doll s dollars. announcing the breach and freezing all customers counts yesterday. reacted and slid 26% that's a to month low for bit coin continues to get plagued by hacking its electronic digital currency. the backers would say is part of the growing pains. this is what happens. it's part of the deal when you move into something so transformation that will. >> it's a krip toe computerized currency. obviously hacking is going be a part of the story. >> coming up, today's must reads. first as we head to break, check out what's happening with european trading. that's the picture you can see right there. we are seeing a little bit of red across the board in europe.
5:43 am
we'll see if it stays that way. stay tuned, you're watching cnbc first in business worldwide.
5:44 am
5:45 am
you won't see these folks at the post office. they have businesses to run. they have passions to pursue. how do they avoid trips to the post office? mail letters, ship packages, all the services of the post office right on your computer. get a 4 week trial, plus $100 in extras including postage and a digital scale. go to and never go to the post office again. welcome back to "world wide exchange." now to this morning's must read stories. my pick in the wall street journal. too many politicians tried to hide the problem. writing, incredibly neertd candidate from the major parties
5:46 am
is addressing the nation's staggering debt. the looming crisis hangs over my evaluation of every other problem america must confront. thought it was interesting he took to the journal to write this. he didn't endorse any candidate. didn't propose any solution. i think it speaks to the larger problem in the republican party right now is a lot of their traditional adeals and debt is among them. the conservative principles they stand for is getting lost. >> economic conservatism is something we haven't heard a lot about. they're so busy trying to fight with each other on hot bottomen issues that perhaps one of the issues you don't talk about is the economy. it's interesting. >> debt is not -- os terrety is not in right now. it's all infrastructure. they just passed it in japan. >> look what happened in japan.
5:47 am
i was going to say. it's a huge deal. economic story we may see play out more as the presidential debate starts to kick off this fall. huge one to watch. speaking about that political side of the equation, i went to facebook, yes, facebook for my must read. it comes from hewlett-packard ceo megawit man who is throwing her support behind hillary clinton. ran for governor of california in 2010 as a republican is urging other republicans to reject donald trump. meg whitman writing here on facebook to vote republican out of party loyalty alone would be to endorse a candidacy i believe has exploited anger, grievance, sen phobia, racial division. this has always been a point of contention for many moderate republicans, sara, about whether or not they want to support either candidate. we know the coke brothers are not supporting either candidate.
5:48 am
that i have said so during their big retreat the past week. again the political story in the economic one is going to intertwine a lot more i think as we approach those debates in the fall. >> it's good you picked that specifically after the johnson one because a lot of these republican lawmakers are not going as far as meg whitman to back hillary clinton for that line because they just want to go for the republican party and they want anyone except for hillary clinton. it will be interesting to see if any of the lay mawmakers start follow hillary clinton. he called on republicans not to endorse trump if they're going to call him out for certain behaviors. >> what i find intriguing is the idea when we talk about business people. many people who appear on our air, billionaire business people, we're talking like the karl icons of the world. >> they are backing donald trump. >> yes. >> so as much as we talk about this idea that business leaders like meg whitman are supporting hillary clinton, there are those
5:49 am
out there, business leaders, people who have made a lot of money and built up a lot of businesses who said donald trump is the right person for the job. >> peter thiel smoke. >> correct. >> harold ham, continental resources. he does have business members on his side. >> that's going to be a huge point that plays out as we again talk about this idea that polling is going to get contested as we approach what happens in septd when the election debates kick off. with them one-on-one with each other. then you start to see whether we have business leaders or economic thought leaders. >> we need a debate on the economy. >> we do. absolutely right. >> that brings us to our twitter and facebook question. which candidate is better for business. weigh in and we'll bring you the results later in the show. when we come back t dow and ts& dropping to lows. first as we head to break, check out the price of oil this
5:50 am
morning. this has been a pain point and while wti is higher this morning and almost 1% higher, it's still trading below $40 a barrel. stay tuned you're watching cnbc first in business worldwide. and 3% back on gas. which helped him give his players something extra. the cash rewards credit card from bank of america. more cash back for the things you buy most.
5:51 am
the cash rewards credit card from bank of america. hey, honey? yes, dear? you're washing that baked-on alfredo by hand, right? (loudly) yes, dear. dish issues? cascade platinum powers through... your toughest stuck-on food... so let your dishwasher be the dishwasher. this turned out great. cascade.
5:52 am
welcome back to "world wide exchange." the dow now down for seven straight days. the longest losing streak in a year and extending those losses in the premarket action. it is worth noting the index is down 1.4% during that 7 day period thachlt is the smallest decline in 75 years. joining frus boston is director of global macro infidelity investments. how do you explain this losing streak? it's not major in terms of the selloff, but it is lasting a long time. >> seven days may be a long time for a trader, but the typical investors, seven days is not a long time. the market broke out so right

after brexit, the market fell. it fell less than people thought and then it turned around which nobody really expected and then before we knew it. we were at finally at new all-time highs above that 31.20 level on the s&p. we went all it will way to 21.75 which is a 40 point rally thachlt was a stealthy rally as well. now we're giving some back. typically when a market breaks out, it will retest the breakout point which will be 21.30. it doesn't surprise me that we're kind of giving back some here. i think the true test will be what happens when we get back down, if we get back down towards that 21, 30, 35 area. >> cross asset price moves are something you watch constantly. sara and i kind of tagged and really hit the idea we are seeing weakness both in stocks and in bonds at the same time rising treasury yielding, falling stock prices, but none of it is out there in a

panic-type situation. how do you read that? what is to say about kbloebl marke markets? is this a repricing? >> well, that's a great question. that's really the thing that sort of i'm looking at right now in that when the stock market broke out, it was on falling yields, the 10-year treasury went to 1.32 or so. those types of extremes creates a rating in equities. if you look at valuationuati, t earnings side is important of that. interest rate side, if interest rates gone down to these types of levels, it is sort of no alternative scenario and so equities were pushed higher on lower rates and now they're coming down on slightly higher rates, although again i should emphasis a move in the 10-year treasury from 1.3 to 1.5 after an enormous decline maybe no

more than just trading notice. >> can you add in what's going on with oil and the dollar to some of those cross asset moves and the breakdown of correlations here now with oil back below $40 a barrel and the dollar index as a six-week low. >> so the move in oil is very interesting. i think it's mostly technical, but oil has gone down from 51 to briefly 39 yesterday. and without any confirmation from, let's say, credit spreads in energy high-yield bonds or even the energy equities or oil volatility or the oil forward strip so it is kind of an odd duck here and as we know, the oil producers in the u.s. need about $50 a barrel to break even and so we briefly went to 50 and now we're at 40. below 35 and i'm thinking we're going there, but below 35 i think fears of credit events start to reemerge so the move
5:56 am
down in oil is scaring a few people, but so nar it seems to be more technical than anything. >> just a couple of seconds left here. in your opinion, what's the biggest factor affecting markets right now. just a couple of seconds here. >> the key thing is the second derivative or rate of change in earnings growth seems to be bottoming. so q the is becoming a pivotal earnings season. the rate of growth against q1 is higher. we're starting to make higher lows. the growth rate for q2 has just flipped positive as of last week so plus 1%. so there's a green statuchute hn the earnings side. >> thank you so much for joining us this morning. always good to see you from position with on the this morning. now to the results of facebook and twitter question. so far 61% of you say hillary clinton. >> interesting. we'll see how the votes play
