"worldwide exchang exchange". u.s. equity futures set up for today's trade. as you can see, we are higher across the board but albeit fractionally nasdaq up 9 points dow jones higher by 1 point. oil certainly got a lot of attention last week. wti settling down 4.6% for the first negative week in five and the worst week since may 5th you can see wti crude trading. ice brent, the international gauge trading at 55.42, lower by .4 of a percent let's stick with the oil trade. energy operations in the gulf of
5:14 am
mexico are coming back online following hurricane nate the storm which made landfall over the weekend caught off more than 90% of oil output from the gulf that output is expected to quickly come back online with nate a tropical depression outside of the region. let's bring in john kilduf at again capital. there are a lot of dynamics driving the oil trade. it's been front and center since the beginning of september is that really the driving force behind oil prices? it was fleeting, it seems like, given the fallout we saw last week >> yeah, it was fleeting we're starting to sort out the inventory situation. crude oil dropped last week. we saw refined products, gasoline in particular come back online and rise. big question now we're watching for the markets, i guess there are two, distill late or diesel fuel inventories terrific global demand for the product over the past pretty much this year things have gotten a little tight there.
5:15 am
that's the first time we can use tight or tightness in referring to any energy commodity in quite some time. that is a source of support for prices at the moment this is a time of year though when that demand drops off and that's why you saw the prices start to come down last week only to get supported by the hurricane nate here. the big thing to watch though for me is just the middle east as always is a cauldron like never before to me in a way. i'm surprised the situation with turkey and the u.s. not getting really more attention or more reaction in the broader markets, but also, too, you had saudi king meet with president putin last week. >> right i was going to ask you about that that was an historic meeting the first time the saudi king had gone to moscow and in a way it seemed like the leaders had reaffirmed their commitment to global oil production to scale back of course, as part of that opec agreement, oil prices moved higher on thursday but on friday they gave back. >> sort of a new found friendship there
5:16 am
also, too, you have a number of interests against the cukurdist people you have turkey, iran, saudi arabia, russians, even the u.s. to a degree clamping down or pushing down against that movement where there's a significant amount of oil involved as well obviously we all just went through moving the islamic state out of that same region. the middle east is really a bubbling cauldron at the moment that needs to be watched, but the bottom line is that everybody is focused on one thing at the same time, which is pushing out more, not less oil. >> we talked about the idea that perhaps the hurricanes, as tragic as they were, provided temporary moves and factors influencing oil. what is the next big catalyst and what are the targets you had specifically with wti given that we have supply/demand being worked out and other fundamental factors being played out. >> the fundamentals going
5:17 am
forward here, assuming there's no more storms of any significance, should help to push prices lower. we peaked a week ago thursday. we hit almost $53 a barrel, $52.86 on the chart. that was an outside day with a lower close. technically that's a nightmare for the bulls and key reversal day. we've been coming down since we've broken below $50 i see oil prices going back down to $42 a barrel here over the course of the next several weeks before we see better what the setup is for next year and demand overall. some of those analysts in early january, john, were calling for mid 60s when looking at oil is that just not a target that can be reached at this point >> it's going to be very difficult. you have to have a string of hurricanes you have to have a supply disruption event the economy has come through globally to support prices from a demand perspective for the first time in a while, but the production situation is just more oil, not less more refined product, not less.
5:18 am
>> lower for longer. john kilduff, thank you for your time. >> thank you so much, john. coming up on the show, it's being called the worst political crisis to hit spain in decades thousands of people spilling into the streets of catalonia calling for unity. we are live in barcelona. here's today's national weather forecast from nbc's bonnie schneider. >> good morning, seema and don we are looking at nate bringing about travel troubles to parts of the northeast we may see some airport delays due to rain. and in denver it's not rain we're talking about, it's snow temperatures are cold enough in colorado that we're looking at a 30 degree temperature drop if your business travel takes you to denver, i would say pack for a winter experience. just 32 degrees in one day of a change snow is in the forecast as well. a winter storm warning with temperatures that will be cold enough for it. watch out for power outages as well we could see 3 to 6 inches of snow so depending on where you're

5:23 am
the march to talk to the catalan authorities. we asked him what his message was, how concerned was he? here's what he had to say. >> we have been trying to have that dialogue to engage ourselves to that dialogue with the spanish government unfortunately we are along that table. in order to have it you need a counterpart. so far we had that you need two to tangle anything that would help our spanish counterpart i think is going to be for us absolutely acknowledged >> reporter: and this is really what we've heard repeatedly from catalan leaders. since 2012 they've sought negotiations with madrid, the spanish government with increased fiscal independence. they feel they've never had time to talk to the government. he says he will take any

5:25 am
tomorrow afternoon rajoy said he would do whatever it took within legal means that could include suspending catalonia's autonomy, dissolving the parliament and calling for fresh local elections. >> we saw that, willem france is saying they will not recognize a unilateral catalan declaration. what has the response been not just from france but other european countries >> reporter: well, we've seen that across the continent, including the european commission they said this is an internal spanish matter to deal with. the foreign spokesperson for catalonia, he refused to answer that question whether he had had discussions. of course, the catalan is very pro eu they would like to stay inside the european union that's what's frightening businesses there is an independence declaration. it will automatically mean these companies, these organizations whether they're banks or anything else will be outside the eurozone

5:31 am
the hang seng and hong kong off and the australia asx 200 off by half a percent we're resuming normal operations there. as for the european session so far, just like our futures, it's relatively mixed and quiet the dax and germany and the cac in frans and the fatse up everybody eyes what's happening with the catalonia independence situation, seema. >> we'll keep an eye on the uk as well. the fifth round of brexit talks between the uk and the european union is set to commence in brussels today right now let's take a look at oil and see where it is trading. as i said, wt if crude closing down 4% on friday on these renewed tensions between saudi arabia and russia. here on monday we're higher for wti crude, 49.34 ice brent crude down by half a
5:32 am
percent. natural gas is rounding up fractionally on the day. take a look at gold. we're higher by around $6 last time i checked we're higher by $9 at 1,284. if we take a look at the dollar board you'll see that the dollar has been mostly weaker throughout the day here we go the euro stronger against the u.s. dollar at 1.17 and against the yen it is weaker as i just said let's check out what's happening with the turkish lira. the currency falling hard after the u.s. embassy and ankara suspending all u.s. visas. the turkish lira was down. right now lower than 2 1/2%. it's getting a hit because of the fed interest rate issues all of the currencies do as well >> emerging marked stocks have been a bright spot so far in 2017 one of the best performing asset
5:33 am
classes. >> turning to this wall street agenda for the week, there are no reports today with the bond market and federal government closed for columbus day, but on wednesday we're going to get the minutes from last month's fed meeting. thursday look for jobless claims in the producer price index. on friday its retail sales, the consumer price index cpi and consumer sentiment as well earnings season officially kicks off this week with results from the major banks. you have jpmorgan and citigroup reporting on thursday and bank of america and wells fargo report on friday we'll hear from black rock and nine earnings reports slated for this jeek bob dole, senior assets manager what do you think? can earnings season help markets move even higher than we are trading at right now >> they certainly have been the catalyst for the market so far this year. i don't see why that should
5:34 am
stop earnings should be reasonably good along with economic statistics you've just mentioned. we've got that, of course, hurricane effect that we saw in the jobs report last friday. that could affect some earnings. it could be the right excuse when companies don't make it it could be a convenient excuse if companies don't, but the underlying trend for business is pretty good. you saw it in the isms last week. >> bob, it's dom if we talk about the markets at record highs right now, there is no doubt that the path of least resistance has been to the up side, has been for quite some time, but are there things that you look out for as potential signs that we may be due for that long awaited correction or pull back that we just don't ever seem to get >> you're right. the market is at all time high of course, earnings are as well so they go hand in hand. that doesn't mean we won't get pull backs my view is corrections are nonpredictable and random, but after the fact we always know why. look, catalysts could be maybe
5:35 am
earnings aren't as good as we think. maybe some adults leave the trump administration maybe inflation as we saw a hint of in the friday employment report in wages begins to move higher there are lots of things that could be, if you will, the fly in the ointment that cause a pull back. as long as earnings are doing okay, which they are, the path of least resistance is higher. >> bob, one more thing here. if we talk about this idea that the sectors that have been leading the way higher have been technology, some of the financials have been doing pretty well so far, are there places in the marketplace that still represent pockets of opportunity, stuff that maybe isn't as well-valued as other parts of the overall stock market >> well, i would stick with the areas that are doing best because of earnings. we're seeing improvement in financials selected tech i don't think is a blanket. health care still has good tail wind in terms of earnings and valuations are not horribly stretched.
5:36 am
i guess underneath your question is there a lagging area? telecommunication offers some companies with some big, fat yields fundamentals are mixed the stocks relative to the rest of the market are pretty cheap. >> bob, we've seen this increasingly strained relation 147 between turkey and the united states. this new news of this travel ban in terms of the visas between the two countries. how do you think investors are going to react to this news? >> it's never good news when you start fighting, even if it's with words i didn't put on my list, i should have, things that worry me, the geopolitical environment. iran, north korea, the list goes on this recent development with turkey is not good news. turkey's, of course, been a neutral/friend from time to time we don't need a barrier there. >> two nato allies of course when we're talking about the united states and turkey bob, we'll leave the conversation there thank you for joining us this morning. bob doll
5:37 am
>> have a good week. >> you as well. news out of washington this morning. president trump laying out his demands for immigration reform, and topping the list is the border wall. the white house is calling for full funding and complete construction of the wall it also wants to crack down on sanctuary cities and move to a merit based immigration system in a letter to congress the administration said these priorities must be reflected in any bill that addresses the children of undocumented immigrants or the so called d.r.e.a.m.ers. democrats are firing back. they released a joint statement saying we were open to reasonable border security measures but this list goes so far beyond what is reasonable. this fails to have any attempt at compromise. schumer and pelosi thought they had a droo.r.e.a.m.e.r. deal.
5:38 am
dove is dropping the latest ad campaign. the company posted a three second gif, whatever you want to call it, to facebook showing a black woman removing her brown shirt to reveal a white woman in a white shirt. now many were outraged by the ad calling it racist. the company has since apologized saying it's committed to representing the beauty of dye voers city adding that it missed the mark in terms of its overall message. so this is something where you can -- a lot of people are becoming much more sensitive, i guess. >> yeah. >> to what's happening with advertising campaigns. it just goes to show that marketing managers and ad spend managers have to be that much more vigilant about the many layers of the onion that have to go towards some of these. >> it's controversial to say the least especially when you see that gif you have social media, that instant reaction you know right away. >> it can spread so quickly. >> exactly speaking of social media,
5:39 am
snl has also come under criticism for how it handled the harvey weinstein controversy the late night show did not mention the sexual harassment allegations that ultimately got the hollywood mogul fired from the company he co-founded. they said the snl dress rehearsal included weinstein jokes but they were dropped because they fell flat he left it out of the show because, quote, it's a new york thing. that prompted donald trump jr. to tweet, out of curiosity, where is @realdonaldtrump from seems like there could be more to that pass than this nonsense. >> it is a fairly controversial topic. >> there's always next saturday. >> there is always next saturday. mcdonald's is feeling the heat after its szechuan sauce disappointed fans. it debuted back in 1998 when the
5:40 am
disney film "mulan" was released mcdonald's only brought back the sau sauce at select locations and it severely underestimated the statement for it long lines formed all around the country with the police being called to at least one location to deal with angry crowds. mcdonald's responding to the tons of social media scrutiny. we hear you and we're sorry not everyone could get super limited szechuan this winter it will bring it back for a longer period of time. >> i want to try it, too. >> mcdonald's version of general tso's chicken. the farm ma bro penned a letter to a friend detailing his time behind bars as he awaits his skensing shkreli says, quote, things are not that awful here.

he's reading "shooting hoops" and playing chess. he's adding, i'm teaching these prisoners new things and hopefully ways to change their lives. his cell mate snores and his bed is cramped and uncomfortable. >> those are probably some of the worries. >> yes if a martin shkreli and sports the new york yankees had their backs against the wall facing elimination in the american league division series versus the cleveland indians. the game was scoreless going into the seventh inning when greg bird connected for a long home run into the second deck at yankees stadium. the yankees held on to win 1-0 they had to gain four against the indians. it's a big deal here red sox facing elimination the yankees facing elimination it may not be great for the a.l. east but they got some love. >> big win for new york. >> boston and new york move on.

welcome back to "worldwide exchange." i'm dominic chu. time for the must reads. stories in the op eds catching our attention. my pick is in the u.s.a. todd, misplaced priorities behind pence's performance at the colts game he's writing, quote, so like a
5:46 am
terrell owens celebration, pence's walkout was core rio graphed and rehearsed. it was also a distraction from what should be the administration's view. the nuclear standoff with north korea still simmers yet mike pence took time to travel at taxpayer expense at indy solely to score a win for president trump. come on, get your priorities straight it is on the front page now of the wall street journal. this message that's getting out there. tim swarens who is the op ed editor says people should always stand for the national anthem, but this is really becoming a little bit more of a political stump than anything else the taxpayer issue, the cost of doing so is a little bit more than -- >> especially when there are so many other things happening around the world, other legislative priorities surprising that he took this
5:47 am
