"worldwide exchange" begins right now. ♪ good morning welcome to "worldwide exchange" on cnbc.
5:01 am
i'm sara eisen >> i'm wilfred frost, very good morning to you from me as well good to be back. >> good to have you back after a crazy week in the uk and we thought the comey testimony would take the week -- >> theresa may managed to shoot herself in the foot and the uk delivered another surprise june vote >> looks like she will forge ahead. >> just about. she will be able to continue for now. the question is for how long we'll discuss that later >> let's check in on the markets. after another big tech selloff dominated the trading day yesterday on wall street futures pointing to a bit of a rebound this morning dow futures up 45. s&p 500 up 6 nasdaq futures are up 21 so maybe a reprieve from the tech selling check out the nasdaq two-day chart. we're talking friday and monday. brutal day for tech. monday not as bad as friday. the nasdaq 100, which tracks these big cap tech stocks having the worst two-day session since
5:02 am
back in september. names like facebook, amazon, apple, netflix and google, the big winners and still are for 2017, suffering big heavy selling. they're up in the premarket. we should mention because this is "worldwide exchange," it's actually been a global phenomenon the tech selloff. ten cent in china, samsung in korea selling off on friday and into yesterday having a bit of a reprieve this morning. >> i think important to see the futures are up today this time yesterday those names were down about 2% this is already looking like the rot has been stopped another sign of that is the asian market yesterday asian tech, particularly in japan and korea, some names in china like ten cent they were down sharply. today asian markets showing signs of reprieve. korea up 0.7%. shanghai up a half percent japan basically flat hong kong itself is up today european trade for you as well
5:03 am
we are seeing some rebound th e there. yesterday, again that selloff infected european markets and germany and france were down some 1% yesterday. all markets in europe are up a bit on the note of the uk, we should mention, we had cpi, 2.9%, expected to be 2.7%. well above the target range of 2% for the bank of england the highest since june 2013. the pound has risen off the back of that. a look at broader markets. ten-year treasury note 2.22%. we are treading water ahead of that fed meeting due today very much a 25 basis point rate hike priced in already the question, of course, what happens going forward and how they do it, continue using interest rates or balance sheet reduction. >> we will get cpi numbers and
5:04 am
retail sales over the next two days the data as a whole could dictate the tone of the fed rate hike into tomorrow what they say about balance sheet reduction. how aggressive they want to be when it comes to rates let's check on oil oil prices back above $46 a barrel for wti 46.27, up 0.4% higher again this morning. higher yesterday, too. brent, 48.48, up 0.4%. nat gas popping about a quarter of a percent as for the u.s. dollar, little changed into the fed meeting it's been sort of quiet after the turmoil of last week with the british pound weakening on the back -- >> kind of rebounding. it was doing that any way this morning. cpi helped it more just back to 1.27. recovering a bit but unlikely to see a strong recovery from here until we get that agreement between theresa may and the dup and the government is able to govern
5:05 am
at the moment a little uncertainty, an outside small chance you could have another election theresa may held off the -- >> another election? aren't they sick of elections over there >> definitely. everyone is. why is theresa may able to hold a government and not been ous d ed yet is because conservative mps like boris johnson realize if you had another leadership change you would likely have to follow it with another election. that's why she's surviving now but in the short-term she needs an agreement with the dup so she can govern >> the key is whether selling continues, buyers step in and whether there's fundamental reason, whether the fed gives it or not one thing about the selloff, we talked to a number of portfolio managers about this yesterday and tech strategists, not one fundamental reason that they can pinpoint some people look at the goldman sachs cio note last week saying the tech stocks have had outsized gains it doesn't make sense.
5:06 am
valuations are high. generally chocked up to healthy profit taking after a nice run the question is does it become more violent and worrisome to drag down the market for the summer this morning a bit of a reprieve >> either way, a bit of reprieve in tech stocks and asian tech names. but even before that the encouraging thing was that the rest of the market wasn't dragged down too much. two sectors were focused on. oil prices stopped their slide, so friday and monday we saw the energy sector perform. >> and the banks >> banks is interesting. banks had their selloff a month before now tech is having its profit taking banks on the other side have been able to rally off the back of that and had a great week last weekend and all eyes on the next couple of weeks for the banks. first of all we get stress test results on the 18th of june. that's a huge moment for all of them less than a week after, we get reported earnings. >> we also got last night the
5:07 am
treasury recommendation for regulation. the day ahead, another important one in washington. attorney general jeff sessions heads to capitol hill today to testify before congress. he will be appearing before the senate select committee on intelligence sessions will likely face questions about the firing of former fib fbi chief james comed his relationship to the russian ambassador to the u.s. during the election his testimony gets underway at 2:30 a.m., it is unknown how much he will answer or whether he will invoke executive privilege. a close friend of president trump says he is considering whether to fire robert mueller, the man leading the special investigation. appearing last night on pbs, chris ruddy, the ceo of news max media says trump is weighing up
5:08 am
that option. >> mueller is a man of integr y integrity, but we all know in the history of special investigations they go far and wide they go well beyond what the original jurisdiction was. he's bringing in some of the top prosecutors that have worked in the justice department this is not going to be rosy for the white house. >> in a statement sean spicer said while ruddy was at the white house yesterday he never spoke to the president about mueller. in other news out of washington, the treasury department unveiled a plan to overturn rules for banks and finlt fi financial firms put in place after the financial crisis it takes power away from independent regulators, gives political leaders more influence over the process the changes would eliminate rules that affect smaller banks. separa separately steven mnuchin
5:09 am

5:10 am
forward. that's why we focus on june 18th this is a different tone from regulators moving forward, and it could lead to big banks having a billion or so of capital which they can use differently. something that people have been focusing on a lot with bank share prices a simple win for them. >> used differently to buy back stock or -- >> we don't know if they'll be using it for buybacks, dividends or reinvesting it. it doesn't need to be on the sidelines. president trump is hitting the road to talk jobs. the president and his daughter are traveling to wisconsin where they'll visit a technical college to promote skills based education. this is part of president trump's push to expand aprenstiesshapren apprenticesh apprenticeships. later today he will speak at a fund-raiser for governor scott walker uber is expected to release the findings of that highly anticipated investigation into

welcome back to "worldwide exchange." i'm sara eisen along with wilfred frost. time for our must-read stories my pick is in the "wall street journal" from the ed board, "tru "trump's new sugar high. i picked this because the "wall street journal" has wavered in terms of support on president trump's economic policies, but one that they have consistently disapproved of is the trade policies, renegotiation, protectionist impulses this deal was made between the u.s. and mexico. basically the journal ed board says it results in higher prices for consumers. the new minimum price for raw sugar is 23 cents per pound, up from 22.5 cents. the world market price is 14

5:45 am
that the markets have built in a risk premium for the dollar, to account for uncertainties that trump's presidency has introduced it's an interesting factor in terms of the reasons why we've seen the dollar selloff. quite a big amount of it, he says, is down to this wildcard factor that people are not sure which way the u.s. is headed >> which goes back to the point we were making several times last week when you were in the uk, the political risk, for those who say it's not showing up in the markets, it's in the currency market. you have seen the volatility there, the movement every time there's a disappointment or bigger uncertainty hole that has opened up. that sounds like what o'neill is arguing. >> on the flip side, one of the reasons that euro has rallied is more uncertainty around the political front. the pound weak against all currencies it trades with because of political
5:46 am
uncertaint uncertainty. >> the question is, you know,vos destructive for economies. it impacts economies, and can be unstable the question is will it impact the equity markets on that view. so far not yet >> we'll have to wait and see. what goes up must come down. why one market pro says this recent downturn in tech was a long time coming he'll explain when "worldwide exan" mes ghchgecorit back i love you, couch.
