made here. we define hedging. that is reducing risks not increasing risks. as you heard from mr. diomo itself it was not a risk reducing activity they were engaged in, it increased their risk. we have to be careful the regulators are not undermine by this huge effort to weaken the rule by putting in a huge loophole which is called portfolio hedging. >> oo should banks be regulated? >> send your comments over. you can compete them to us or shoot us an e-mail to friends first at foxnews.com. we will read them later in the show. >> now it is time for your 5 at 5. no trace of a missing fbi agent from california. 35-year-old steven i've vens was

bombers. so the leak really did endanger sources and methods and the leak i think have to be prosecuted. if puts people's lives at risk and causes the operation to be cut short before it gets all of the information it could have gotten and sends a signal to countries that didn't work for us to be trusted to keep a see receipt. >> time for the first degree weather update with maria molina. you need the umbrella as we head into tomorrow. we have a change in the weather pattern. i hope everybody enjoys the beautiful weather from the northeast to the weather in the weekend. a frontal boundary is headed in and firing up showers early this
