i'm dominic chu in for brian sullivan we're looking at a live shot where we're following a big developing story wrish prime minister theresa may under increasing pressure to step down in her role as prime minister some reports say it auto could happen within the next 24 hours. we'll take you to rond with more in just a little bit here. we are seeing yields fall for a little bit here. on the u.s. ten-year note side of things, we are currently at 2.37%. the two-year note around 2.2% as
well in the asian trade, we also saw specks of red there going as well a good amount of it. the nikkei and japan off a half a percent. the hang seng in hong kong 1.5% to the down side the shanghai composite 1 .5%, and the south korean kospi to the down side. in the european trading that negativity also carrying through today. the da & in germ ann off by over 1.5% same with the cac in france and the ftse 100 off by a little over 1% as well. wr also watching and keeping a close eye on the british pound calls are growing louder for theresa may to step down let's get right oit to steve sej we can live in london with the latest, and are her days or day numbered, steve? >> a lot of people have called
the demise of theresa may many times over the last couple of years since the middle of 2016 when she took over from david cameron as prime minister. it appears this time that they may be right as well she had a pretty disastrous day in and out of the building behind me yesterday in westminster as well where she got off the prime minister's question time and thereafter tried to explain her latest moves on breck it with her withdrawal agreement teal deal. at the same time we also had back benches conspiring to work out how they could potentially create another leadership challenge against mrs. may now, we understand that tomorrow things could really move today, by the way, is a bit of a dark period in terms of reporting here in europe as
well you have the european parliamentary elections. it looks like mrs. may is going to meet the leader of her back bench tomorrow sir graham brady why >> i just want to kind of show our viewers some of the media coverage that's happening right now with this particular election if you take a look at some of the tabloid covers, you take a look at some of the news magazine front pages today, we're showing the daily mail right now. the sun. theresa, tearesa how much more can they take, says the daily express this is very much a dramatic move here.
the daily mirror says tears in the back seat, and they're showing a picture of theresa may there for those who are listening on radio right now whasz the sense among the population in the u.k. with regard to whether this is a move that theresa may should make to step down from that role >> it's question of trust, dom, as well. whether people within her own cabinet, within her own party trust that she is the person who can lead the country through what is a bit of a political quagmire at the moment as wrshl there's a lot of trust lost, including the likes of the home secretary. he just didn't know what she was going to be in her withdrawal
agreement bill as well it's a trust issue in parliament, and apparently she has lost the trust much loofr allies as well the process going forward, though, is going to be absolutely fascinating as well sflo the pressure is mounting on theresa may to step down as the u.k. prime minister and, of course, the polls are open in the e.u. parliamentary elections today later on joining me now is news editor matthew, and, matthew, steve laid out an interesting scenario for what's happening with regard to sent meant in the u.k. >> the european elections, british people don't typically pay a lot of taepgz, but this
year it's been front of mind for everybody because we're not supposed to be in europe anymore. the vote to leave the e.u. was three years ago. britain was supposed to have been on its way out, and it's sought an extension, and because we sought an extension, we can negotiate our way out properly . >> the brexit party, who is the biggest proponent for brexit has surnled ahead in polls before today, and it's going to widely predicted to do very, very well. at the expense of th conservative party led by theresa may, who is trying to negotiate this torturous exit europe is still no closer to being resolved >> it amz as though right now
across europe and not just, you know, continental europe, but also u.k. as well, there is a sense of negativity in the markets. how exactly are these elections and the anticipated outcomes going to effect those markets both on the continent and across the u.k. as well? big employer employing to liquidation based on 5,000 jobs blaming brexit uncertainty companies business, markets want certainty about brexit and about the brexit outcome, and they're not getting it because three years on we still don't know the tones of the u.k. departure and the sort of brexit that we're
going to have, if any. there are other parts across europe and the u.k. in particular turb pushing for a second referendum. theresa may offered this in her latest withdrawal bill in an attempt to bring the u.k. parliament together, and it blew up in her face because supporters in her own party have ditched her, and as you report, there's a strong likely hoord that she resteins as early as tomorrow we won't get the results of the european election until monday, even though polls in the u.k. have opened today. we have another few more days of uncertainty. it's a muddled picture, and waiting in the wings boris johnst johnston, the former foreign secretary. a lot of your viewers will know him. he is the lead candidate to take over he favors a hard exit and a hard withdrawal from the e.u. that will spook markets further because they want some certainty.

not reality. the strategy that is are working are all things digital in the case of a 42% increase with target, it's click and pick they're doing a great job. now, they've also put capital in the 400 stores that they've remodeled. >> anything dick every digital is working it's where your mall-based and you're getting hit by the traffic declining from a mall standpoint, and at the don't have the digital strategies. that's where the retailers are getting killed >> steve, does this just mean then that every single bricks and plort ar mall-based non-big box retailer is doomed to failure? what exactly can they do to get

the high end, and so the high end retailers, you know be i'm talking really high end are going to have to get into the rental business. there's no question about it whether it's from fashion to jewelry to everything else have you to get into that. then there's mall-based. that's structure arl what do you do if you are in a mall there's all restranding retailers and they're getting hit on this thing. you have to continue to work your store base. finally, the large box retailers are all downsizing they're downpour sizing in footprint in terms of number of locations, and also the size of the box realizing the convenience of shop that on-line presence and aare the soment through on-line, and then delivered through click and pick is the winning strategy. >> all right some great thoughts on real estate tail. steve, thank you so much for those. we appreciate it this morning here still to come on the show, a done deal. avon sold nearly $2 billion. that stock popping again this morning.

first of all, judging by polls, it looks like change is coming as parties are poised to make significant gains in the european parliament. >> that's if they want to advance their progress >> so take us through the story here the euro zone economy is not exactly the bastion of strength right now. earlier this morning we got some slightly worse than expected data coming out of germany as well what exactly does this mean about the health of the overall economy in europe and how closely are they tied? the u.k. economy to that with the continental europe given all that's happening with these
elections right now. >> you can identify the second half of 2018 earlier this year there were scenes of this, but basically service in the mmi in between the last reading we got this morning. basically suggesting that the underlying trend for economic activity is still pointing down. >> such as an anticipation of, say, tensions and also brexit could really derail the economic situation in the euro zone, and the problem is at the moment in the euro zone, the political state looks constrained, so monetary policy is quite
stretched. >> well, as i said, i think the that populist parties will make some significant gains however, populist parties are also highly fermented, and actually, if we focus on right wing political parties at the moment, they are over three different european parliamentary groups, which means that their action or impact is -- well see after the elections if they will manage to really bank on the gains and pull together all
their votes and form a single group. i think that's unlikely. nonetheless, their way will be able -- they will be able to disrupt, to some extent, the effectiveness of european institutions from the inside >> all right sylvia, thank you for those insights we really appreciate them on those european elections taking place today. well, let's turn back to the broader markets. wall street is pointing to a big drop at the open joining me now is killburg founder and -- he is also a c northbound contributor i just want to point out, we just showed viewers and listeners out there, if you didn't see them, the dow is indicated to open down by 230 points at this stage.
>> don't spill your coffee because at the end of the day we are not seeing the vix not even above 17 that's really reflected in the fact that, question yes, this is part of the process. these are escalating tensions that you have to work out as they negotiate this deal >> is it fair to say, jeff, that this market latest leg lower has been orderly in your mind. we haven't seen 70 point drops in the s&p 500 this has been in many cases what some would consider an orderly decline. is this just a revaluation of asset prices given the ongoing
trade concerns or is it the beginning of something much worse sf. >> we're not seeing overwhelming volume to the down side. that's really helping us better understand what is the emotion in the market. as we see these sectors rebalance, as we see tech and even the leading sector for quite some time, as we see emotion come in there, i think there are people taking profits, but it's all going back to the uncertainty. the one thing i really want to quell all the emotion out there is that we have all the emotion coming in with this trade deal situation, but, remember, dom, we have four fed speakers talking. the fed always has a way to make everyone feel better by the end of the day i think the fed will prop up margts >> you are a trader, and you like to look at stocks often are there any places in particular that you are finding opportuni
opportunity. >> i think you have to look at the proxies to china even the cac, which is flat on the year, and lastly, look at apple, which is up about 90% on the year, but all are the proxies to chooirn how much pain can rocky balboa take before he beats mr. t the u.s. administration is going to take a little more pain because at the end of the day i think china needs to come to the table, so expect a little bit more escalation, but look at some of the discounts out there specifically in the chinese proxy stocks >> all right jeff killburg, thank you very much for that. appreciate it. always great to get your thoughts on the morning on these markets. well, coming up on the show, breaking this morning. india's stock market surging to, yes, a record high as india's prime minister modi looks set to win re-election. we'll break down the results and why this election matters for your money plus, elan musk is making a very big bet on vegas why he is hoping to turn sin
