5:15 am
the dow and the s&p, the nasdaq fractionally higher up about 3 points look at european trade last week it was positive, at least for those with euro as their currency the euro slipped and that allowed germany and france to close up more than 2%. the ftse 100 was low and a similar theme albeit small moves. france and germany slightly higher and we'll bring in spain as well, up 1.46%, a little bit of a bounce back from spain. hundreds of thousands of people taking to the sfreetreets of barcelona over the weekend in a show of unity. willem marx is here with us. >> more than 300,000 people according to police marching in the center of the city yesterday more than a million and some of the pro-union used it as a rally for the elections.
5:16 am
prime minister rajoy is calling for elections in december. we'll see from some of the separatists decide to boycott. we've heard from one of the three, the cep the smallest one in the ousted government coalition said they will boycott the vote i'm outside one of the head are the qua equarters for the erc, t independence party and ask them whether they will be participating in the vote. of course the real dilemma for them if they boycott that vote which we've heard will be happening december 21st they'll be shut out of the local parliament we're waiting to hear what the latest fate is of carles puisdemont lot of questions whether the civil servants running the government in catalonia will be taking their orders happily from
5:17 am
madrid >> willem it's not been a great couple of days mr. puigemont but he had good news from soccer >> an unexpected victory, clearly something he's hoping will be reflected in his politics and the real question whether he will participate in the selection. he's eligible to so long as "he's not in jail. >> mr. rajoy supports real madrid, added soccer we'll discuss it further on the cnbc news line, michael, good morning to you as we look at things right now, it's this whole process, is it going to prove to be a big mistake by mr. puigemont
5:18 am
>> well i don't think so when you speak to people in the pro-independence people in his government, they say listen, this is always going to be a first step and how can we possibly ever win independence if we don't recognize ourselves as independents first and it was never going to come overnight. they were never just going to become a free state. to become a free state you need international recognition, your own borders and army, it was never going to happen instantly. they feel this is the beginning of a process and it's going to be a stuttering process, but they feel they've made a big step so i don't think it's necessarily a colossal miscalculation >> michael, many people feared if madrid were forced to declare direct rule over catalonia, which of course they have done, that that could make matters worse for the rest of spain, that that could push the kacat n catalans to wanting independence
5:19 am
harder the response suggests that's not the case particularly elections will come soon >> absolutely right. the big fear was a catalan spring turning the home rule or the direct rule from spain into a horrible quagmire of a daily dog fight with separatists on the ground it seems like that now is not going to happen. the mood music although it's too early to tell definitively is there isn't going to be widespread resistance. we had one minister, one sack minister turned up for work this morning but five minutes ago he left again the big protests on the streets were as you said for pro-union supporters again the mood music is that the pro-independence parties are probably going to end up fighting or most of them are probably going to end up
5:20 am
fighting in this election, which is, in a way, a kind of tacit acknowledgment that madrid has the power to call an election and they are not yet an independent state because they worry if they boycott it, they end up with no power at all. so they seem to be outflanked by rajoy in the short term. >> what about brussels' world view will they be pleased with developments that mr. rajoy seems to have calmed things down >> absolutely, i think they'll be breathing a sigh of relief that this doesn't look like it's going to turn into a violent or betracted conflict on the ground, that rajoy has control, that they don't have to make any kind of decision on trying to put pressure on rajoy to act differently, if he has the situation under control, that is absolutely great the only fly in the european ointment is the belgians who
5:21 am
have been quite sympathetic to the catalans and indeed over the weekend offered puigdemont political asylum in belgium, which was to the fury of the spanish. >> in brussels of all places potentially. michael thank you very much, the spanish index was up 1.6% rallying today up next a possible turning point in the sweeping investigation into russia's role in the 2016 election we're live in washington with althdeill e tas. it naturally begins to change, causing a lack of sharpness, or even trouble with recall. thankfully, the breakthrough in prevagen helps your brain and actually improves memory. the secret is an ingredient originally discovered... in jellyfish. in clinical trials, prevagen has been shown to improve short-term memory. prevagen. the name to remember.

welcome back to "worldwide ex-change. investigators looking into russian interference with the 2016 presidential election are expected to announce one indictment today tracie potts is live in washington with all the details. >> good morning, everyone. we are waiting to see what the details are. not a lot of leaks coming out of the grand jury but that's how it's supposed to be. it's supposed to be a secret process to protect the integrity of that process. within a few hours we could have a much better idea where this fbi investigation is headed. two sources tell nbc fbi special counsel robert mueller will announce a federal grand jury indictment, charges against someone in the russia investigation, and most of washington is in the dark.
5:25 am
>> make no mistake, disclosing grand jury material is a violation of the law >> we have to have the public have confidence in the fact that the grand jury system is secret and as a result fair >> reporter: previously law enforcement sources named former national security adviser mike flynn and former trump campaign chair paul manafort as targets of this investigation into alleged russian interference and possible collusion in the presidential election. both deny it the president exploded on twitter calling this a witch hunt >> this has been much hesitation whether donald trump would hesitate to use his pardon power. >> reporter: an indictment could provide more information for congressional committees conducting their own investigations >> we continue the hard work of getting to the bottom of what happened >> i have not yet seen any definitive evidence of collusion. >> reporter: the president's pleading, "do something. today, the special counsel will.
5:26 am
now lawmakers are concerned that what's happening here is going to distract from what's happening here, the fact they're trying to get tax reform done and the president tweeted about that saying he doesn't think it's a coincidence at all. >> tracie, the president tweete a lot of things over the weekend, the assumption it's linked to the timing potentially of this indictment >> sure. >> is he aware of the indictment, even possibly aware who it is? >> not likely, unlike it's him, and that would be unusual, but sometimes certainly if there's going to be, i mean this would be highly unusual here but if there's going to be some sort of situation where a person is going to turn themselves in, then they'll be made aware and those arrangements will be made, but to indict a sitting president, all the legal experts out there say is highly unlikely if it's someone that worked for him, someone in his administration, it's very likely he doesn't know and we'll find
5:27 am
out when everyone else does. >> tracie, thank you very much for that preview up next the other big story on the washington front, who will be the next fed chair the president says el' announce his pick this week we'll break down the likely candidates with politico's ben white. first as we head to break a check in on futures which are pointing to a negative open for the s&p and the dow, fractionallyigr r hhefothe nasdaq we're back in a couple minutes looking from a fresh perspective can make all the difference. it can provide what we call an unlock: a realization that often reveals a better path forward. at wells fargo, it's our expertise in finding this kind of insight that has lead us to become one of the largest investment and wealth management firms in the country. discover how we can help find your unlock.

5:30 am
the fed, the jobs report earnings from facebook and apple, all of it coming your way as we close out october. >> the search is over, president trump will announce his pick for fed chair this week. we'll break down who is still in play and one booze maker just made a big bet on marijuana. the details of that coming up, it is monday, october 30th, 2017 you're watching "worldwide exchange" on cnbc. ♪ very good morning and a warm welcome to "worldwide exchange" on cnbc. i am a wilfred frost we had seven straight weeks of gains for the dow and the s&p, although the nasdaq was the best performer last week it was up just over 1% the dow up about half of 1% and the nasdaq though really only getting into that lead position on friday. it closed up 2% for friday itself, after some blowout numbers from the likes of amazon, microsoft and alphabet
5:31 am
as we said already facebook and apple on the docket this week reporting their own numbers. this morning we are a little bit mixed. the dow and s&p slightly lower, the nasdaq slightly holding on to gains ten-year treasury note moved above 2.4% last week but slipped back down and in the last half hour dipped to 2.397% on the ten-year note. asian equities the nikkei coming another stellar performance last week, up 2.6%, a record close on friday but this morning in and around that level still, record intraday on friday but not a record close still nicely above 22,000, it's been a great set of numbers. recently shanghai was up 1% last week hong kong lower and both markets slightly soft this morning. european trade we saw the euro names do well the likes of france and germany up 2% after the euro softened during the course of the week the ftse ended the week sligh y
5:32 am
ly lower and slight gains for spain. oil prices had a decent jump on friday taking the gains for the week to 4.5% this morning not doing too much. wti lowered the price 53.9 switching focus to the dollar board which we did see a nice gain up 1.2% last week against the euro after a dovish mario draghi on thursday the euro lost about 1.5% this morning the pound and the euro are bouncing back a little bit against the dollar but the dollar essentially a little bit weaker against the yen gold prices just to round things off down 0.7% last week and are a little bit unchanged, flat today, 1272. president trump will announce his pick for the next fed chair sometime this week joining us is ben white, chief executive correspondent at politico good morning to you. >> good morning to you >> let's talk about this
5:33 am
are we pretty certain we know who it is? of course he said on friday on instagram he's made his pick, and we think we know who it is >> we're pretty certain it's jay powell, current fed governor and that was locked in to me by several sources at the white house over the weekend who said, barring some surprise late change that jay powell will be offered the fed chairmanship, he'll be nominated and sent to the sthatenate. as we know with president trump nothing is set until he's said it >> is this a continuation of dovish policy but he gets to anoint his new own person and hopefully he gets loyalty? >> that's the idea, jay powell is dovish on rates, fairly well aligned with current chair janet yellen, also allows trump to put his stamp on the fed, not have somebody anointed as chair by barack obama, former president obama, something trump likes to do is change course. he wasn't completely sold on powell throughout the time trump likes splashy names and
5:34 am
there's conservatives in the senate on the hill who don't think powell is conservative enough it wasn't a slam dunk. that's why john taylor was considered, others were considered because conservatives want somebody more conservative and traditionally hawkish. >> does that mean gary kohn was not considered >> he was in the mix, trump in an interview with the "wall street journal" said i'm considering gary kohn for the fed. couple things happened, one, he was critical of the. the on the charlottesville incident, trump doesn't like criticism particularly from within his own circle so there was a cooling of relations between gary kohn and president trump. i'm told that's warmed up and trump feels better about him but he wants kohn to put the tax reform on hill he said he's too important to move him over to the fed and gary was on the fence whether he wanted to be fed chair >> talk about tax reform, where do we stand now?
5:35 am
there's a lot of impetus behind it but the same debates and questions about how we get something that balances the books a little bit >> right we're going to get a bill this wednesday from the house ways and means committee which is where the rubber hits the road we'll cut the corporate individual rates to these levels but offset the costs doing a, b, c and d. may not be popular with a lot of people getting rid of the state and local tax deduction impacting the mortgage interest deduction, all of the interests will come out and attack them. republicans sore desperate to get a win, to get taxes lower on corporations and individuals that they'll find a way to get there. it's going to be messy and going to be messy for several weeks after this bill comes out. >> some of the interests that might have issues are things like the national association of home builders. >> correct, yes. >> and their issues are strong enough to derail things? >> i think they're probably not strong enough to derail things but that's a lot of money that was going to be spent in favor of this bill which will not be opposed to it. they're basically saying we think the way you've designed
5:36 am
this will make the mortgage interest deduction moot for most people, they won't take it, that is less bullish for home builders for the entire real estate industry so there will be people like the home builders who will say look, we want lower corporate tax rates but not at the expense of losing the deductions that are helpful to our business >> in terms of where this can get us, gdp growth going forward, on friday we got better gdp growth anyway regardless does the 3% growth target or higher become realistic in. >> it's hard to say. it could be realistic over the short term you get 2018, maybe 2019 you get a stimulative boost from this, from lower corporate rates, more investment until you get to 3%, trans a little above it's the longer term the ten-year window they expect it every year which seems unrealistic given we're at close to full employment, wages are rising, it's not clear there's a huge amount to grow from there maybe 3% for two years and we're back to the twos again >> let's talk about the mueller investigation, if we do see an indictment of a former senior or
5:37 am
current administration official or campaign member, how damaging is that? >> i think it's quite damaging it certainly throws if we get any sort of indictment from mueller, whether it's somebody we all have heard of or somebody obscure will show us that the investigation is moving forward and building and will take the focus off of what the white house wants it to be on, new fed chair, tax cuts, all of those things i think republicans on the hill can kind of move forward on taxes, despite the noise, but anything sort of knocks the white house off track in promoting these things is damaging to the cause and certainly we've seen trump an approval rating of only 38% that can go lower not helpful to have a wounded president when you're trying to sell a legislative package >> contextualize 38% for us? >> quite low in his term and if you look at the macro numbers on joble joblessness, the stock market rocking. you'd think the white house would have a higher approval rating but he's very low
5:38 am
if you start seeing people indicted and americans focus more on the russia story it could go lower >> ben great to have you with us >> sure. some stocks to work, hsbc seeing pre-tax profit jump 448% year over year europe's largest bank completing 71% of the $2 billion buyback share plan it announced in july. down 0.t9% it opened up but softened during the course of the morning. nintendo raising its full year operating profit forecast thanks to strong demand for its switch gaming console and smartphone games, it slipped a little bit at the close in the nikkei of course has been up well year-to-date axzo nobel in talks to buy u.s. rival axalta the deal could create a $30 billion. can. axalta up 2.5% novartis is offering to buy

throughout the day in new york city we'll dry out eventually in boston as well but the winds continue all day long gusting up to 60 miles per hour certainly could impact travel throughout the day today much quieter across the midwest, temperatures in the 40s in chicago, some light snow possible in northern minnesota, beautiful day in the southeast with temperatures in the 60s and 70s, also looking good in the southwest, 86 in phoenix, 69 degrees in loss acle angeles more "worldwide exchange" when we come back i love you, couch. you give us comfort. and we give you bare feet, backsweat,

5:44 am
everyone will be able to can of coke thanks very much. >> that's the big question with this does weed and beer go hand in hand or cannabis cannibalize beer rob sands betting on this says a lot for the market they're known for imports and for him to say i'm betting o the legalization of marijuana nationwide so much we want to be the if, in this. it's going to be interesting to see. we've seen some players get into this but no real big beer distributors so for them to do this >> it's a 10% stake and $2 billion company so significant investment we'll see. also some food for thought for google ceo over the weekend, someone tweeted a screen shot of apple and google's cheeseburger emojis highlighting the different cheese placement google places it underneath the burger and apple puts it on top. the tweet went viral and google said we'll drop everything else we are doing and address it on monday, if folks can agree on the correct way to do this

number consumer spending was light, business spending was very strong and inventories contributed a decent amount. what that's a big move in nomina and everybody's kind of paid in nominal wages and companies make money in nominal earnings so that's an important element n a
5:53 am
notwithstanding theadjustment for real inflation >> with the fed meeting this week no one is expecting a hike until next meeting >> i think it's a low probability of anything getting done in press conference, no update to the dot plots inflation still continues to somewhat disappoint for all of 2017, we're starting to see a little more inflation pressure at the producer level and also at the wage level. we'll watch closely this friday for the jobs report on another stronger potentially average hourly earnings for some wage growth >> on the fed front we focused on who don trump will nominate to be the next fed chair, if it is the market's expected choice at the moment in terms of mr. powell, does that mean more of the same >> yes, i think so if you get jay powell which i think would be the best choice and what the market is looking for you're going to get a continuation of yellen-esque policies with a little more
5:54 am
hawkish tint jay powell will sail through both chambers of approval, he'll get bipartisan support which will be a good win for the administration and the president wants a good win john taylor very smart individual would probably make a good fed chair but much more hawkish path and face challenges >> what this means for the dollar from here, it was on a weakening path much of the year but enjoyed a strong rebound of late >> yes, you're right, will last week alone up 1.2%. now rallied back almost 4% it was down 10%, 11% at its low point earlier this year. i think you see more strength of the dollar into year end, as we wind through kind of this tax reform and people get more comfortable that it could get done or something could get done, and then just stronger earnings and stronger growth all probably put a bid in the dollar into year end. >> in terms what have this means for your stock selection sector
5:55 am
selection, which sectors are you most encouraged by hard not to be impressed by tech after late last week >> i think you still have to stay overweight. the cyclical sectors here, companies and sectors that can drive their own growth notwithstanding what happens in the broader economy. to us that looks like financials, industrials are having a really good earnings season as well health care still poses some really nice value, and we would stay overweight consumer discretionary not within withstanding some of the weakness in the connell sumer sector >> we've seen better gdp figures but the last couple of weeks the markets are reliant on the central bank suggesting they'll keep policy relatively loose >> we still favor international markets over domestic markets right now. think europe, japan, emerging markets over the u.s interestingly tomorrow, will, if we close october down with a positive month, we're up about 2.5% on the s&p right now, that
5:56 am
will be the 12th consecutive month of positive returns in the s&p, so we're talking earlier about the seven consecutive weeks. this is 12 consecutive months of positive returns the s&p has only done that twice since 1928 1935 and 36, 1949 and '50. long streak where the domestic markets outperformed for some time we think there's better valuations and europe and japan are earlier in the cycle than maybe the u.s. happens to be at this point >> daryl thank you for joining us this morning. quick check in on apple suppliers this morning, largely higher on strong preorders for the new iphone 10. up some 6% for catcher tech, largan up 3%, decent moves whether that bodes well for apple's numbers this thursday we'll wait and see the iphone 10 will be playing into the numbers yet but guidance on how sales are going will be important as will about a month or so or three weeks or
