5:22 am
for the s&p and nasdaq, if we hold the declines, it's a ninth day in a row stocks have fallen. we haven't seen exactly a move above 1% to the downside on the sell offs. if you look at the s&p 500 and zoom out, we have done damage. s&p closing below a key technical level, 2100. we are going back to lows last seen in july. that was after brexit when you saw a lot more fear. this is more as the traders tell us, a move of caution. you are seeing currencies where the dollar sold off against the currencies like the euro and the pound beating to its own drum. the dollar has been safe all week, trading around the 103. no direction in the currency market this morning. as for oil, big move lower in the price of oil. wti losing 8% this week. a one-month low. a miniboost this morning, we'll

aren't we waiting for response to russia for what u.s. intelligence officials already called out as interfering in this election? >> reporter: they warned russia anticipating there might be interference. that has gone out to russia. in terms of preparing that, they are not going to talk publicly in detail. in terms of the systems they think may be affected, the government as put out some warnings and there are concerns. yeah, they are on top, they tell us they are on top of trying to protect those systems to be on the lookout for any interference in the systems. not only that, but things like social media. one thing they are concerned about is interference with social media or fake documents going out at the last minute when they can't be verified about one candidate or the other. those type of things might mess with minds of voters as they
5:25 am
head to the polls. >> in this final weekend, what is the latest on the polls? the last couple days, the momentum behind trump, is it e vated a little bit? >> reporter: not necessarily. we looked at red states, he is ahead in texas, as you might expect. he's ahead by five points in arizona where hillary clinton is really been making a pitch, especially for latino voters. looks like, according to the polls, she hasn't ellipsed donald trump there. the state of georgia, the deep south, traditionally a red state is statistically a tie. looking at the map, 66.2% for hillary clinton. 33.8% for donald trump. this has really changed what we have heard from donald trump on the campaign trail. he, himself, making fun of the fact advisers are telling him to stay on message. we are getting a different trump than what we saw a few weeks
5:26 am
ago. >> reporter: what's interesting about the 538 map, they are looking at a couple things. you have the actual percentages national and battleground states, which seem to be obviously much closer than that. then you have the likelihood of donald trump getting 270 electoral votes. remember, in u.s. elections, it's the electoral votes that count. hillary clinton, according to our projections, still likely to get more than 270. donald trump has closed that gab a bit, just in the last week or so. that's what makes this race really so nail biting, just with a few days to go. >> absolutely. nate silver gives a light red to georgia and north carolina. a light blue to new hampshire. they are going to be key. thank you for joining us this morning as always. now to sports, chicago cubs fans can't their celebration when they hold the victory parade for the world champions. it starts at 10:00 a.m. local

5:31 am
welcome back to "worldwide exchange" on cbs. i'm sarah. >> i'm will. i don't know who is singing this, but i hope the lyrics are right. >> dnce. >> that's what it says. i don't know who that is. it's new music friday. th that's the theme. i like that intro. it's going to be a good day. that's what the jobs people hope. that's the big data. let's look at what markets are doing ahead of that. they are, at the moment, suggesting they are not quite going to back what has been an eight-day losing streak for the s&p and nasdaq, a six-day losing streak for the dow. significant momentum behind the selling. we saw a percent of declines yesterday. it sums up with the nasdaq down
5:32 am
2.5. the dow down 1.3%. a pick up in volatility, not a spike in volatility. >> not a panicked sell off like we saw after brexit. >> increasing caution and uncertainty around the election with more money going into cash, really, than anything else. a bit of buying. >> it's off the table. a lot of traders saying people are derisking, waiting for the results to figure out what trades to put on. >> i would point out, as well, the other factor, year-to-date, a thin layer of leaders in the market. it's not widespread. that's a reason for caution. people, at the end of the year, want to lock in the gains they have made. let's look at the european trade. they are down 4% for the week as a whole in europe. the ftse 100 declining because of the rally in the pound. all in all, europe looking at
5:33 am
3.5% to 4% decline. asian trade, we saw a sell off in the nikkei. the yen is not strong, but hanover the last couple sessions. the nikkei was closed yesterday for culture day, i believe. we have hong kong and shanghai into the week softly, but not too softly. >> as for the broader markets, oil has been under pressure. wti setting below $45 a barrel, 44.66, unchanged at this hour. gas prices are low as well. there's buying safe haven treasuries. we have seen it in germany and all the sovereign safe haven bonds amid the global equity market sell off. it's put the ten-year yield back. we'll see if it lifts it above 180 or a weaker one.
5:34 am
78% odds in the fed funds future that is the fed raises interest rates in december. we'll watch the probability as well. >> what is more likely, a december hike or clinton victory? >> in terms of a betting market, a december hike. 538 has clinton in low 66%. >> amazing they changed. >> the u.s. dollar made a move weaker this week against the advanced currency like the euro and the yen. the dollar is a bit stronger against the yen, 103.02. the pound had a good week, the best in several months from the result of getting parliament reapproval, watering it down a bit. gold is strong and had a strong week, above the $1300 an ounce level, $1303, unchanged this morning.
5:35 am
>> jim cramer tweeting, he can't seibert options than putting money in cash. we have a fed on the table and the election. certainly, the short term, he's bearish and cautious is a better word. >> you have no better sign that the election is creating uncertainty and caution in main street than the starbucks call yeed. howard schultz saying everyone hopes post election, a natural state of affairs in terms of behavior. analysts wanted to see 5%. they have been outspoken as to how the uncertainty is impacting consumers. >> good morning and happy friday to jim, if he's watching. it is jobs friday. the forecasters say the economy likely added 170,000 payrolls. in the last month, unemployment is ticking lower, to 4.9%. joining us from new york is
5:36 am
kathy lien. good morning to you. it's sort of confusing toss up whether this is a very, very important jobs number or rather because we are closer to a fed meeting or whether because of the e lex, it loses importance at all. >> i think investors want to get past the jobs reports and focus solely on the presidential elections. you can see that by the moves in stocks today. you can see that by the relatively benign moves in currencies. unless payrolls grows by 200,000, 225,000 or more, investors are not going to be impressed. they were impressed by the statements, the federal reserve meeting, they are not going to be impressed by jobs. we had muted job growth. if we get a healthy one this month, i don't think it's going to guarantee a rate hike. plus, if trump becomes the next president and we see significant market volatility and a
5:37 am
potential slowdown in the u.s. economy, that will effect the fed's decision in december. either way, i think it's really the election outcome that investors want to focus on and i think, after the payrolls report, it will give a great opportunity to derisk, as sarah mentioned and square up, ahead of what will be the most dramatic election in history. >> what is your trade into the election? buying gold, the yen, u.s. treasury, shorting the peso? how do you head yourself? >> i think we have to wait for the payrolls passes. if we are lucky enough, we get a good number, that gives a great opportunity to sell into the u.s. dollar rally. there's three scenarios for the presidential election, one clinton wins, the other trump does. one is a victor, the other accepts defeat. it's dollar negative. i think the risk is going to keep the dollar lower.
5:38 am
>> is it dollar lower, but not treasury? we saw bond buying this week as risks around the election increase. if we compare it to brexit, huge buying of uk guilt after the brexit vote which did unwind. is that something we can expect here if we get a surprise result? >> i think so. this week gave us a good taste of the potential market we could have next week. a much more magnified degree. treasuries could perform well. the peso should perform terribly. the biggest winner, the euro and japanese yen. this week's q as a guide to next week. >> do you think investors have a good sense as to how to discount a trump presidency? how can you do that? >> not at all. that's why, as you said, using your words, derisking is the best bet. no one knows how the policies
5:39 am
are going to shape up. when there's uncertainty, investors sell first and ask questions later. i think the natural inclination is to sell u.s. dollars and sell stocks. while they haven't properly -- they don't understand how to discount a trump presidency, they want to be out of risky assets before they are able to assess the impact. >> can't let you go without asking about the pound. >> you know what i wanted to ask. a quick only a 1% rally. would we expect a bigger rally? >> i think so, since carney shifted to a neutral bias. sterling is prime to break the 125 level, it's waiting for nfps or next week, basically. i think the path of least resis tent is higher in the pound for the time being.
5:40 am
>> fighting back the british pound. >> pay my hotel in february. >> your shopping is 90% of the budget. >> thank you. stocks to watch today. fire eye reporting third quarter revenue 12% beating forecast on demand for cloud-based products. they are projecting a fourth quarter loss. i's not as bad as analysts feared and the stock is shooting higher, up 13%. lions gate, revenue rose 34%. earlier, they announced a deal to buy starz for $4 billion. weight watchers better than expected results. they plan to lean on oprah winfrey with marketing campaigns during the new year's resolution.

5:45 am
welcome back to this mornings must read. stories catching our attention, markets prepare for a vote that makes brexit look basic. julian writing this article, well worth the read. i'm picking up on one small part
5:46 am
of it that struck me. it relates to the similarities of the betting markets around the two events. two weeks ago, patty power, a betting company in great britain felt so confident that hillary clinton would win the u.s. presidential election, it started paying people with bets on her victory. big mistake. they did a turn around and reopened the books. odds 2-1 for the republican and 90% of bets on the election have been on trump. i think this is an interesting factor. before the election, the brexit -- so many members, we found out from the likes of others the volume of bets was going on exit but the magnitude was going on remain. that's why the odds were going that way. there were bigger amounts of money going that way. smaller bets are going on exit. that's similar with trump. >> a lot of people give us credit for pointing that out.
5:47 am
it's a good predictor. >> it's how betting markets work. i's not total change. people were surprised when we pointed that out and might be now. 91% of bets are going to trump. >> i wonder how much of that is people not expecting trump to have any traction at all in this complacency we have seen in the markets and from pundits that trump wasn't a threat. >> 5-1 to 2-1 in the space of six to seven days. huge move. >> it's nate silver's 538 blog and the piece why clinton's position is worse than obama's. this is a must read. it gets into the nitty gritty. mine is more so today, if we had to choose. >> surprised, that point of view. the differences stem from states with white voters without college degrees, in particular, ohio, iowa, inform nevada and m.
5:48 am
imagine if she were three or four points ahead in ohio instead of behind. that would make her a more robust map. losing new hampshire would not be a problem. she could afford to lose pennsylvania. she can't. new hampshire is important. pennsylvania is a must win for her. the state that is are usually more swing tied polling states like iowa and ohio are firmly suggesting a win for him, according to to polls. >> i suppose it doesn't matter how they get over the line. the comparison, if you are a democrat following a democratic president, how similar is the map compared to last time. >> especially with obama when he got 300 electoral votes. melissa lee joins us from new york with a look at what's
5:49 am
coming up? >> good morning, i keep thinking of sarah's ice cream from her hometown. >> have you ever had it? >> i haven't. do they call it frozen custard? >> no, that's dichbt. >> that sounds good. >> do a road trip. >> ask joe kernen if he's next to you. he's not. he's getting ready for the show we have coming up. andrew is live from the conference. we'll speak to the ceo of baron and speak to ron baron with interesting thoughts about the solar city deal. he's a long-timeshare holder of tesla. it is a critical investment for them. we have a count down to the final jobs report ahead of the u.s. election. the remaining few days on the campaign trail for both candidates. >> great stuff. we look forwards to that.

5:53 am
