nails to demos with one image. down to the closing bell stars right now. cheryl: hello back everyone. i'm in for liz claman today. persona follow-up on breaking news we had last hour and give you a shot of what is happening with the markets. the beige book really not moving the markets, but a couple things are coming out of it and some commentary is coming out of the beige book that market participant's are certainly watching treated let me give you a shot of the doubt. 1,612,729 and the market has been trading at a tight range over the last two weeks, but here's a story, it is about money pumping into the system and money come from governments, not just in the united states, but overseas and the commentary we have been getting in and the last hour on fox business is that basically without central banks pushing and money and moving money into the
economy and again europe in the united states you don't have market right now, you have nothing, but of course we are following the markets and right now, we are also getting other breaking news into foxbusiness. this is someone that basically if you get involved and you need to well move some money in the hedge fund industry you would call the sky. steve cohen, but steve cohen has called someone else, someone so important so big that i don't know if you are al gore and you want to contest the presidential election you call him. charlie gasparino just i walked onto the set with this breaking news. >> i'm just going to read the headlines. we know this fox news has learned cohen has secretly hired high-profile attorney david boyce to represent him in regulatory. if you're going to back is that why does he need this? he needs him for the simple reason that the regulatory probes are not over and he wants to fight the fcc charge that is seeking to
bar him from the securities and also it seems to be an indication that criminal charges against him and a lot of people think they are over and they didn't bring charges against him and they indicted the firm. is essentially family office disband, renamed that the criminal probes are not quite over and that's why you hire someone like him. this is big news. this is the first time this news has been disclosed. this has not been disclosed and they do this very quietly. when you talk to people close to:, what they are telling fox business at work boyce is primarily there to fight these sec charges with threat to brand him. i talk to other people that have said it's not just that. he's worried about a host of potential litigation and still his criminal charges are not quite done yet. that's why he brings in someone as high profile to read we should point out that cohen has declined to comment. they would not deny the story. this is a pretty big
indication and it shows you that he is still worried and you don't hire him-- what has he done? cheryl: microsoft, tobacco, the us election with gore. what has he done? >> he currently represents hank greenberg in a host of litigation. this is a big movie. cheryl: stay still has more than $2 billion in net worth and he is worried about his future. he may have to sell more artwork if he gets pulled back into the court system. thank you. charlie gasparino at the latest on steve cohen series we are going to move on to another story we are following. i guess you could call this this note in effect. a technology company-- do you remember edward snowden, but contractor releasing us secrets? chinese media has been lashing out us cubbies for spine on chinese data to read that has caused the chinese government to dispense with services from companies like ibm, oracle, intel, what will this cost
tech giants? like google and facebook? let's bring in rich edson from washington and our very own joint can't. rich, what is the reaction in washington? what is the verbal attack from the chinese on us cubbies? >> this is the public cyber fighting between the united states and china and it continues to actually. us officials have complained to us-- chinese counterpart's for years espionage. they're infiltrating american companies in on this latest episode that obama and ministration has failed to respond to repeated questions or comments. the one cyber security expert in town says escalation between the us and china will continue. >> i would expect to see more finger-pointing and mortality reaction and perhaps a more protection as to controls on what type of technology can be purchased and moving to exclude some
american businesses or limit their ability to do business in china or with chinese companies. i think you'll see sort of this escalating trade war if you will. >> weeks ago the federal government for the first time charged five chinese government officials with hacking into us companies. china call the charges a sham as is the chinese officials are presumably in china the charges did little more than serve as a public shaming. the cyber rhetoric began with us national security agency spine as a result. china has begun turning down services from us company's and the obama administration says cracks of united states have applied a double standard as other countries by and the us government and private sector and do so to benefit their businesses over american firms. senior intelligence officials have denied that the us engages in economic intelligence gathering to benefit american businesses to. cheryl: once again they are on the defensive. these comedies in a course with the chinese in general.
joe, what do you think this will mean for the business relationship because this is a very crucial relationship frankie to our overall economy. jo ling: absolutely and is rich said the relationship with us and china has been a rocky time. it's just widening and applications are costing american company's money in the chinese market. comedies like microsoft, google and facebook threaten them because they coordinate with the program from the nsa and . take a look at what we have here on their microblog overnight they bowed to retaliate saying quote to resist the naked internet high gemini we will drop international relation and strengthen technology safeguards, but we will also severely punish the ponds of the villain". the strong language comes after windows eight was banned in china two weeks ago and last month the doj announced those charges against the five chinese military officers that which mentioned. google has denied it works
with nsa and is denying us government has any access to its servers and they do hand over information according to the law, but companies like cisco and ibm have actually seen a major drop in china sales, which some alice are calling that snowden affect in china. we have to remember that today is the 25th anniversary of the andaman square massacre which means the chinese internet has been highly restricted over the past couple weeks, we more so than usual. cheryl: before that you go, the ponds of the villain, are they saying that the villain is president obama? jo ling: it seems to mean they are implying that that villain is the us government and their actions into cyber security including the charging of the five chinese officials, but they are basically using stronger language than usual. of course, with remember they are also trying to support their nationalistic streak within the country to increase stability during a pretty tense time. cheryl: no whalley to do that but steal our patents. thank you.
thank you very much. let's move on to what is happening in the us economy. investors scratching their heads after today's disappointing adp jobs report for the month of may. it was their weakest reading on the private sector since january. this report coming two days for the anticipated monthly them out of limit rating which will come out friday morning. keep in mind many investors consider adp to be a leading indicator for the nonfarm payroll numbers. is this just a blip? is the labor market really headed for trouble? let's bring in for a foxbusiness exclusive interview david, chief market strategist. this was a big miss. >> it was and to that end there has been in a lot of
mixed data in the first half of this year. we had a negative 1% gdp report and attend down to the pmi data, we have seen weakness out of europe that will probably bring some ecb action tomorrow, the inflation data as well as the pmi in the real economic data. it's not a one-way ticket, but the good news is we are sitting here with record highs in the s&p and we are seeing the benefits-- cheryl: if the stock market fueled by central bank whether it's the fed or now the ecb that we are talking about they are cutting interest rates. i mean, this is crazy. >> i guess-- i guess what i would say the baton hasn't necessarily been passed yet from the policymakers to the real economy. we are incentivizing people to take risk. where time to get this economy that going in the us. cheryl: we have done this for years. >> we have, but we took a now, we are backup. cheryl: there has to be something that can grow
economy and markets besides basically printing. >> i think most normal people would agree central banks create nothing. they don't invent. they don't change technology. they don't solve the human genome are any of that. what they do do is they change our incentive. they change our sentiments to want to go home and hide in a corner with just our cash in on invest like we all wanted to do in 2009 when the world is going to an end. cheryl: people are still doing that. >> yes, they have lost out on the last five years. with the central banks have done is try to get people to not do that and incentivize risk-taking. so, we always get too optimistic and the highs into pessimistic at the lowe's and we have natural incorporator which is our central bank and i honestly say they did a great job at getting us back to these -- cheryl: i understand you're bullish on the us market, but at the same time we are looking at euro zone inflation right now there's one issue that is not being hit certainly, but if you
are going to be looking at a positive market if you look at something like 80p where you are not getting-- know it has a java no one wants to spend money. how do you still say bullish? >> i stay bullish because we had 10% unemployment and now, we have 6.3%. we are moving through the ecb is one central bank that has been most like the central bank of japan. they stopped before they started. it was a pathetic attempt at easing. may be mario will come through, but the chances are he will disappoint us again and i don't get that excited about the european economy. i really have to admire a lot of what the fed did. i think they still continue to do the right thing and if you look back and this could be very controversial for you on short. if you look back for what we learn from two e1, qe2, three, qe infinity is what we learned was a probably didn't do enough in the beginning. we just had to inject more
medicine into the system. cheryl: we need more medicine because we are not taking proper care of ourselves. you have debate about corporate tax rates i mean about regulation? >> what i will say is that our fiscal policy has largely failed us throughout most of this recovery and it wasn't just for lack of trying it was balanced budget amendments at the state local levels of a lot of craziness at the federal level, but the private sector economy in the private sector portion of gdp has actually done pre-well and i remain optimistic. i did bring you one of our jeffries no hater hats. cheryl: i think i needed at this point. >> stocks are for lovers. cheryl: i like real estate. nice hat. appreciate it. thank you for coming on the show. closing bell will bring and we have 40 minutes to go.

followers just hours out there it was posted online. he tweeted, nike football #risk everything. that's what he had to say that everything trade which sports a pharaoh do you think will win the advertising shoot out? if you play soccer you got that joe. paul argenti, professor at tuck school of business joins us now. thank you for being here. this is fascinating. releasing this basically on the web and this tweet. do you think they kind of stole the thunder from anita? >> absolutely. i think they are moving in that direction of realizing that online will outpace tv. i think it's 68 million to-- the amount of advertising dollars spent is very close today and by the next world cup it will outpace tv advertising, but where will you get 78 million people in four days before you put it on tv? they definitely trumped
adidas. cheryl: nike will be running ads , correct? they are not the of official sponsor, but will they have any advertising the world cup? >> no, adidas actually has a interesting ad and it was directed by the city of god director in their campaign is all or nothing versus risk everything for nike, but it looks suspiciously like a nike had. i can imagine someone watching it and thinking they're watching a nike ad, but you have to had it to kennedy. the job they knew under advertising is world-class. cheryl: let's talk about the specific audience. many americans they don't know is that world cup and i thank you just alluded to this, the viewership if you compare it to the super bowl versus the daily viewership for world cup it's equal meaning that world cup is a much better payoff where if you are adidas or if you are nike, but is the strategy changing do you think of
hobbies companies especially sports marketing players put these ads out there? is the strategy totally changing because of the web? >> i think it has to. think about it, every single day it's equal to a super bowl and the last day is 400 million viewers, so you don't want to lose that audience either. that's not a small audience, so you want to do both. you want to get the excitement before the odd, which they definitely have done. then on the days when the actual matches are taking place you have a month of super bowl essentially then you hit really hard. i think nike is one the first-- first part of the battle just by getting it out there to summary people. cheryl: i think that we should show our viewers again the rinaldo commercial because he is horrible to look at, such an unattractive man. let me ask you this, at the end of the nike ad they
basically have like-- in the risk everything series there is like a school and bones image, what are they doing with that? are they going for the older grateful dead fans or kind of like the young 20-year old school candy kids? >> it's not the grateful dead fans they are looking for here and if you have actually looked into the-- what they are doing online is getting people to create their own ads using this. it's a play for the younger soccer fans throughout the world. and getting people to create their own versions of what they do. it's very exciting. cheryl: so they really are going for the younger demo? >> no question. i think as grateful dead they have not the target audience. cheryl: well, i like soccer and the dead. there you go, paul argenti. thank you very much, paul. good to have you here. >> thank you. cheryl: closing bell will ring and we have 30 minutes to go.

written a markets against the small investors. his words, not mine. to you really believe that? >> the markets are systematically on fair. you can call it whatever you want. he used it, i've used before. the focus on the word to my thing, the challenge really is that it allowed our critics and a lot of people that are part of the problem to start answering the different question. they're not answering or addressing the real issues, the systematic and fairness. >> you believe it's not what the structure of the markets. let's see. i'm sitting home. have some money and need to put in the markets. i should not worry that ongoing begin screw their return. >> i'm an investor in the market i own the mutual fund. i have not changed my ownership
based on the things that we have discovered. a lot of people say it's pennies. i'm inve dollars all that is right. the reaction you have seen is it the principle based reaction. it's not about saying it's not fair. >> commented it as intentional. and it's hard to determine whether it would be intentional or not. a case to be made with say that it was intentional. >> high-frequency traders do this bad stuff on purpose. >> barley is the influence they have that on the market. fundamentally what has happened is that markets have designed themselves in a way to give certain players an advantage to trade on that particular market. >> he would say that advantage has led to the tightening of spreads and cheaper costs for the average investor. >> i'll agree that the market,
is cheaper to trade now. it's faster the trade. i would argue with giving credit to high-frequency trading. i give credit for technology. it is inevitable that technology will have a positive gloss on financial markets and was gone to deliver these benefits no matter what. the difference is that as good as it could be, not nearly. people are keeping a lot for themselves. >> and going it this one more time. you were a small investor, of the things you have to worry about where would you place high-frequency trading? >> that's a great one. i would hope if i was an individual investor would place it toward the middle. i would hope that the market's sort this out. i think a necessary tactic. should not have to think about it. but the fact that it exists does not make it right believable.
>> your viewpoint differs a little bit from michael lewis's. how onerous amount promises the says. >> i think he would agree in terms of saying -- he is an investor in the market. he owns stocks. he allocate his portfolio. so i think he would agree with me. the fact exists. it creates a systematic and fairness. and part of the big risk, by picture, big picture is that you are introducing complexity into the market by encouraging them to go faster, but to whose benefit. are we destabilizing the market to satisfy someone who is just a renter? >> there are investigations going on. eric schneiderman. i have done some research on this committee the most aggressive, the new york attorney general. i'm assuming he has spent some time with mr. snyder.
>> i can't comment. >> you know what they're talking about? today understand the complexities of what they're doing in terms of going after high-frequency trading? >> i listened to the things that were said. jack johnson who works for attorney general has spoken. and when they speak a sound bite people ingrained and market structure. >> they're going after it. as with south like to me. >> i think when you look at the types of things that they're discussing and the questions they're asking to my think the markets themselves, i think that they're asking some very fundamental, important questions that need to be asked. >> to questions. number one, one of the unfortunate outcome of michael lewis's book is that it destroys some degree of wealth. a high frequency trading firm which no one i know, whoever runs the selling, doing bad stuff, he may never be able to
come public. that was not a good thing. >> i think they got caught up and everything that was happening. you know, virtue is -- chino, i was just on a panel. there are a good partner and a participant of our market, not the largest. >> private market. >> they trade. they're big in atf, in real estate and stocks. what they do is make markets. and it differs dramatically from people who are more of the predators'. you know, you heard him say on the panel that they get stopped. i think that from that standpoint they get caught. >> one last question, how will the market look in five years? will there be 50 different dark rules? >> there will not be 50. there will be less markets. >> why? >> , smoothies should not exist. >> and regulators will put them
on. >> increased transparency about what happens in the markets will put them out of business. >> and high regulatory pressure. >> i think transparency is one of the best lovers of the regulators can pull. the reason -- demint, just a couple of days ago there were published metric some different markets. that's a great lover for regulators to pull. it does not impact the actual market structure and naturally what happens is different markets don't want to expose themselves to regulatory pressure. >> that's great. thank you for joining us. i appreciate it. to take away from this. investors should know if you saw any backing away from the historical notion that the markets are rigged, i asked him top-10, the top ten things you have to worry about where would you put high-frequency trading, and this is a guy that is in the book. he says about metal. he didn't say at the top. that should tell you something else. and the other thing, he
believes. these are the private exchanges. there high-frequency traders. a lot of people said that the root of the market structure problem. there will be 50, as there are now. the regulatory pros will force less and less of these things. cheryl: a lot of great stuff. thank you. closing bell 25 match away. we will be right back. ♪
