for the broader averages after what has been clearly an incredibly volatile month. bill stone, let's talk about these wild swings. >> is trying to tell people some of it should've been expected in the sense that the fed coming up, franka we always do the lower oil is a good thing that tends to the volatility of global divergence in the economies but the biggest names in china feeding into that. as much as you can make it that's a little bit normal and you do have to get through this to get better returns than we think will happen is kind of how to play it. train to the backdrop is really bothering people. we look at bar evidence of how these have been on the u.s. when they get the jobs numbers tomorrow. >> absolutely. and how soon the federal reserve moves. i've been pointing to this for about this for a while to lower gasoline prices tripling or to the economy and how people feel and how much money they are
6:02 am

6:03 am
would you be believing in this rally? >> i do think the worst on at this moment. i'm hoping it is because i don't think we get the 20% down because i do think the economy and the u.s. is strong enough to support our names and globally as well. global is a little weaker than the u.s. maria: do with a sickly of a mentor is maybe we are close to the bottom. >> i do think so. it's wild to watch these markets. dagen: now we have to watch asian markets, mario draghi, what he says to paraphrase the keith mccullough would say do you get more cowbell. what are they going to do with the program? are they going to ramp up the amount of money they are buying, extend what they are buying. that is the speculators and investors look for. they just want more from central bank. you will not get it from arafat
6:04 am
but around the world and this other harder hit commodities to my. maria: we will see if we get it. turning to washington, two former aides for hillary clinton will be questioned by the house today. the hospitality committee. blake burman in washington. reporter: hi there, maria. lots of questions mainly because they will be behind closed doors. this is the first to back to back days of testimony but it has benghazi committee involving two of hillary clinton's top aides during her tenure as secretary of state. armor chief of staff cheryl mills will testify today. former deputy chief of staff jacob sullivan tomorrow. depositions like we framed by committee attorneys expected to take several hours. clinton confidant expected to face tough questions regarding what happened the night to end the days following september 11,
6:05 am
2012 when four americans including chris stevens were killed along with potential questions about their bosses e-mail part is this. clinton will testify before the same committee later next month. maria: we will be watching that. it's a biggie. donald trump making headlines this morning. he's set to hold a news conference at 2:00 p.m. today. what are you expecting? do you think he will say he wants to sign a pledge that he won't do a third run? reporter: they sent out a press release last night about 7:30, 7:45, giving a heads up. there wasn't an exact reason giving, but as you just mentioned, the backdrop quite interesting because he will meet privately with the head of the national committee who has been recently pushing candidates to sign a pledge that they won't make a third-party run should they lose the nomination. trump refused to make a pledge last month. the timing could be
6:06 am
coincidental. either way it is something trump will be asked about again by the media later today. maria: blake, thank you very much. blake burman in d.c. trump is facing growing pressure to advance his loyalty to the gop. dagen, your reaction to this. the debate. we remember what he said. he couldn't do it. dagen: he is leaning in that event he had last week in south carolina. south carolina republican party to be in the primary requires you to sign a pledge to basically back the eventual -- he said we will make a decision about that shortly. i don't know. i am getting the feeling he's backing away from the whole third-party candidacy. he can fight with everybody, but
6:07 am
it takes the fun out of the fight. maria: if he were to go into a third-party, that would be very negative for the republicans. >> you so. it's kind of difficult being the front runner to go independent. it's different if you were backing the pack. it's a little odd. dagen: any reason for him to call it press conference. jeb is getting tougher with them in terms of what the campaign put together. there is a poll they had on the jeb bush website. it was like would you rather and you had to make one of two choices and do as they reference to which you got there back a candidate who wants to shake everyone's hand or a german folk who doesn't like shaking hands. they are not quite trump style, but in their own way. maria: it is all politics.
6:08 am
though, does it matter to markets? >> i don't think so yet. you can kind of it or what they say. later on when we get onto the nominees nominees it gets more interesting because you have to start saving this person could actually win and these policies will impact this business. dagen: everywhere i go, liberal, conservative, republican, democrat or green party member, when they find out on the media, the only thing they ask is can trump when, can trump win. maria: people feel at trump can be the gop nominee. he's been handling himself in many ways resonating with the people. i would not have said that a few months ago. but now people are saying this could actually -- dagen: i sat on the curb with osha yesterday that your words bounce off me and stick to you.
6:09 am
nothing can touch him. maria: oil prices surge in the oil prices searching this morning after a 2% gain should loss during embrace another roller coaster section there. take a look at other headlines we are watching today. apple's latest challenge topping its own success. analysts predicting that a growth for the latest iphone model throughout next week. obama secures the iran deal guaranteeing that can advance despite opposition in congress. china sent on the military reducing the number of trips by 300,000. we will be right back. ♪ can a business have a mind?
6:10 am
a subconscious. a knack for predicting the future. reflexes faster than the speed of thought. can a business have a spirit? can a business have a soul? can a business be...alive? is it the insightful strategies and analytical capabilities that make edward jones one of the biggest financial services firms in the country? or is it 13,000 financial advisors who take the time to say thank you? 'night jim. gonna be a while? i am liz got a little writing to do. ♪ it's why edward jones is the big company that doesn't act that way.
6:11 am
6:12 am
6:13 am
maria: welcome back. what a wild ride for oil. 49 barrels a barrel earlier this week before bottoming out at around 46 and change. prices for gasoline still going down 10 cents for a week ago. right now looking to 43-gallon of regular going into the holiday weekend. phil flynn in chicago with more. if we break $50 a barrel? what is the reason for the discrepancy between crude oil and gasoline? >> no doubt it has proven resilient, especially yesterday's stories you think would be bearish. u.s. inventories and ed are high for this time of year. also reports of course that president obama sealed the deal to overcome the veto of the iranian nuclear deal.
6:14 am
usually that would be very bearish. what we see inside the number is the demand for u.s. gasoline remains resilient. global demand continues to stay strong and that brought us back up. the geopolitical story about the chinese ships in the bering sea showing that as well. the good news if you look at wholesale gasoline prices continuing to plunge and you will see labor day weekend prices continue to fall. this is the best labor day in almost five years. get out there and enjoy it this weekend. maria: maybe people have a bit of a vacation after the wild week. we got into a great debate yesterday about what this brings to the broader economy and there is a real feeling that the energy markets represent the real wild card here. if we see bankruptcies and prices dropping, leading to new credit facilities, that would be a major negative to the economy.
6:15 am
do you think this is a wildcard? >> you have to get through the short-term to see the consumer. just every number we run, the fact is a net positive for the u.s. cover for china, europe and japan. the problem is in pockets. you and i talked about cap from time to time. take apart cap from the last two quarters in the u.s. the only reason to discount that much is excessive oil and gas has just plunged. you can see that coming out. we look through financials around exposure to oil. most of the specific ones with more exposure are not overly exposed to oil. i guess we are not worried about it causing a bigger crisis here. >> what i'm worried about his cutbacks.
6:16 am
when oil prices dropped a couple months ago, was i the company shedding jobs, cutting ip budgets, r&d budgets and as a result the impact of the broader job story. has some of these guys go bankrupt, that is going to be a big negative for the job. i'm looking at a different angle because i know you're looking at the todd. dagen: i don't have the answer to that question, but how many more jobs are coming down the road because of the continued drop down in oil prices and the companies that are financially shaky due to the larger players coming to snap them up and save those jobs. to what extent do those jobs get wiped out and he did wind up in bankruptcy. that's a question hard to answer. the benefit would be you have a healthier economy outside of oil and gas. industrial firms get head and
6:17 am
anybody that has supplies. maria: i don't know. i feel there's an effect that could be a negative. dagen: at every negative thing about the economy and market earnings, job losses, regional weakness has been simply because of oil and gas business. maria: chinese markets closed today and tomorrow. the military showing the massive parade. nicole petallides here at the details. >> good morning. that's absolutely right. the house to commemorate the event river japan in world war ii 72 years ago and during the event chinese president, xi jinping, an ounce and a reduction by about 300,000 troops. that brings the size of the army down to 2 million people, so really huge. the migrant crisis in europe with officials from countries across the region pushing for a faster and united response to the crisis. would the past train station did
6:18 am
open overnight. refugees flooded the station but trains are running to than the destination. a manhunt for a cop killer widening in northern illinois. officer joseph gliniewicz from the 30 year police veteran was gunned down tuesday while chasing three men. a woman called in with the late this year since been charged with falsifying police reports. she reported to them in a cornfield by detectives later learned she lied about the entire account after authorities sent out dozens of law-enforcement officials to the scene. trade to thank you so much. we will have repercussions that stretch far outside of wall street. the insurance industry race he would not move. a fox business exclusiveness arpanet. -- up next
6:19 am
6:20 am
6:21 am
6:22 am
maria: welcome back. we are looking at a pretty good market this morning. market higher in the volatility. features indicate the data will be 70 points. s&p 500 also stronger. i spoke with tom wilson in a fox business exclusive. we begin with the underwhelming quarterly earnings report and reasons behind it. >> second quarter we didn't earn as much money as they wanted. dallas and focus on our auto insurance business. the rest of businesses are doing great. the added insurance business started all of last year, people started driving more. more accidents, the customer to fix them because the cars marks ensued. as a result, we are raising prices of auto insurance. maria: it is interesting you say that he has the auto claims arising of people scratching
6:23 am
heads. and we have foreseen that the issue would see that on the road and that would mean an increase in claims? what are you doing about that? >> well, what we are doing about it is improving pricing, increasing prices. if you look out in your life so far, it would annualized a little over 5% increase in prices over the course of the year. we will see how much the regulators allow us to increase prices. as it relates to competitors, you see to competitors come the cmx back there. a number of large competitors have the exact same results. we think it is environmentally driven. we still need to raise prices to cover the increased costs. maria: where does the growth comes from next? you've got a solid market position in the auto business is so important. tell us where the growth comes
6:24 am
from in the coming years. >> first and foremost we can grow the businesses we are ready. in terms of auto insurance, home insurance, we ensure 10% of the market depending which state you look at. an average of growth and we intend to grow there. on a longer-term basis we do a lot with the connected car. people spend a bunch of time in the car. they are the reasons we have accidents. they spend an hour a day versus three hours a day watching tv. we can help them be safer, to a cheaper and have a better experience of their connected car operation. maria: i'm so glad you mentioned that. this has consumers and watchers of your connected car created in a debate. the same debate throughout technology. when you do with all of the information? is allstate now spying on me because you have sensors telling me who was in my car, driving habits in all of this report are you trying to ascertain with
6:25 am
sensors that are telling so much information about the car in who is in it. >> it's a really good question. we try to give people the right price for them. you're obviously trying to determine how good is some of the driver, will they have an accident. we have to estimate whether you will have the next thing and we charge you the appropriate price. if you are a good driver you save a lot of money. about 60% of people and with lower insurance premiums as a result. what we find this while initially some people say a noninterest didn't have any know how i drive, if we say we think you can save or $2 to $50 every six months, people say i'm interested. maria: you will know a whole list of things about people driving cars we didn't know before. where does the data go? what do you plan on doing with the data other than creating a
6:26 am
pricing strategy? >> in addition, we try to help people a safer, better driving experience. for example, we tell you where there's traffic alerts, places with more accidents or you should try to avoid those are paid more attention if you get the particular intersection. we also find ways to help people have a better experience. you can compete with family members to see who is a better driver. we can tell you how your teenagers driving. we use the data for a better customer experience. maria: tom, great to have you on the show. thank you so much. donald trump under pressure to declare his loyalty to the gop. though he finally trumped the third-party rumors. our all-star panel is with us next. stay with us.
6:27 am
6:28 am
6:29 am
welcome back, it is there's a,
6:30 am
september 3rd. joining me is dagen mcdowell jeff: asset management's built stone. 6:30 a.m. on the east coast, a futures point to the day of gains on wall street, looking at a firm market after an incredibly volatile were, dow industrials expect open up the points, nasdaq, s&p 500 firmer. later this morning a weekly reading on jobless claims leading to tomorrow's jobs report. mario draghi will get questions about the ripple effect from slut china. the slowdown in china could threaten the overall economy. we will see if mario draghi says anything about it quantitative easing program. in asia, markets in china and hong kong, closed for holiday but the nikkei average in japan was up 1/2%.
6:31 am
firmness there as well. more trouble brewing for hillary clinton. two of her top aides are said to testify today before the house panel investigating the 2012 benghazi attack but the worker who helped set up a private e-mail server says he will plead the fifth amendment is some committee members are returning early from recess to participate in a closed-door meeting. pressure mounting this morning on donald trump who pledged to run as a republican. the gop is circling the loyalty pledge to insure trump does not attempt a third-party run. john kasich and george pataki will sign the pledge. elon musk in the spotlight revealing a price tag for 10 laps long awaited mass-market car, the model 3. he tweeted out the $35,000 price tag but also said production will not begin for another two years. tell us stock up 3%, take a look, expecting some gains.
6:32 am
on the campaign trail republican national committee reaching out to gop candidates to ask if they will sign a pledge not to run as an independent in 2016. fox news reporting donald trump will meet in new york eastern today, no word whether trump will sign a pledge. want to bring in political consultant basil michael landon washington, wba and research's lease a boost. let me begin with you. the press conference. >> we shouldn't expect anything from donald trump because we will be disappointed. that said there is going to the mounting pressure to sign this pledge because as long as he is in the race republicans have great messageing it may appeal to large swaths of voters and different set of them. they will have to tiptoe around his message so the key is to force him into position where if he is not gaining any more in the polls he looks like he is
6:33 am
losing steam you'll get out. maria: how damaging would it be it from port to go and do a third-party run? >> it would be damaging to the republican party. the rnc is doing their job which is to try to get republican candidates to commit to the party and not run as a a third-party candidate because the reality is if hillary clinton is the nominee we have our third-party candidate on the ballot, that could be incredibly damaging to the republican party. b r n c is doing their job. donald trump, he is not the golden to anyone, not the golden to special interests or donors or any one. i don't know if i see him signing a pledge. i think it is to be seen what he does. we certainly know he will play out for the cameras and headlines. maria: it seems he has softened up on this. dagen: it does. we talk about him being
6:34 am
bulletproof, he went after jeb bush again and that is the focus of his verbal war at this point. jeb is trying to give some punch is back. cheese said in injured yesterday the dead should set the example by speaking english in the united states. i am waiting for trump to start asking for jeb bush's wife's papers to make sure she is in this country because -- that is how far he is pushing it. people don't care until they go to the polls and the republican party whether he is the nominee or not get so little of the latino vote. they can't win next year without a good chunk of the latino vote. has he driven them away? >> are you talking ideology? they want to win in 2016? from the democratic side we love this.
6:35 am
>> here is the thing. i find it a little bit ironic that democrats talk about hurting the republican rant, but they -- their presumed nominee is facing a federal criminal investigation and the other data is a socialist. let's be honest about that, the democrat brent isn't troubled. >> i would push back and say there is no criminal investigation here. number 2 hillary clinton and her husband bill clinton have been with the democratic party last 20 or 30 years. i don't think that is the problem. anybody could get in this race. what is appealing -- >> democrats have zero bench. hillary clinton, martin o'malley and bernie salinger's, let's talk about a diversity in the country. republicans are the ones that have a diverse bench, we have
6:36 am
two hispanics running, african-american running and the women that are all running, they're all young so we have an incredibly diverse -- >> can i interject? of black man, we are incredibly diverse, this is nothing about democratic talking points that appears in the wake of a community or latinos or folk of, nothing is doing that the delay airing only that from the republican party. >> you're not an inclusive party because all you want to do is it -- all you want to do is say it women voters are single issue voters and hispanics are single issue voters. when you look at the polls the number one issue of hispanic voters care about are the same as every other american, they care about jobs, the economy, they care about education, health care. what democrats want to do is say women are single issue voters and his success in the issue voters and economic is. >> as wrong as republicans talk
6:37 am
about the funding planned parenthood and saying her babies and using that sort of authoritarian language led by donald trump, as long as you talked-about issues that way all you do is put people off. you want to win a general election you have to be more inclusive. i don't see that happening. >> let slip an issue like abortion. if you look at this, the hillary clinton is not in favor of the 20 week then that 80% of americans are. i think hillary clinton is a little extreme on the issue of abortion. >> use in favor of the 97% of the work that planned parenthood does do. immunization, prenatal care, all the things republicans for period of time have been talking about the funding. maria: those videos were damning, don't you think? from planned parenthood and that has shifted. >> it changed the debate. but i don't think you fix the problem by defending a
6:38 am
organization that is providing support for women. >> joe biden enters the race? >> 75% that he actually gets into this race. i am 75%. maria: does the party get divided the way trump would divide the party if he went for our third run? >> i think it makes a fantastic contest. you have hillary and joe biden pushing to the top of the ticket, bernie sanders is going to be up there also. but you are talking about ideas. dagen: he can connect to, quote, what frank luntz said yesterday, this would be the best announcement speech ever if he touches on what he has been through as a man, an individual, in a father and a husband and he has the ability to tapping to demotion and his real self which hillary clinton is struggling with. >> i do agree with that.
6:39 am
there's an authenticity about joe biden. i wouldn't discount hillary clinton. last week in minneapolis she had one of the best speeches of all time, talking about mass incarceration, black lives matter. we talked about that a lot in the last few days and she is talking about opportunity and she pushed against the republicans. she internalize a lot. dagen: the red light goes on on the camera, she had read cindy brady moment and turned into a parody of herself. >> hillary clinton is incredibly, look at the issue of the economy. hillary clinton, nothing differentiating hillary clinton's economic policies from those of president obama. what have we seen? food stamps increased exponentially, the middle class families making less than they were before president obama took office and the problem hillary clinton will find is the number
6:40 am
one word associated to her is liable majority of americans did not trust hillary clinton and you get critical swing states not only is she losing to republican candidate but folks like joe biden and bernie sanders i gaining ground on her. >> flyer, and trust worthy of the words. >> that is tough but i would argue when you talk about what the president has done, brought unemployment down, i like the economic message the democrats put forward. >> even though the african-american community -- >> that is a horrendous. >> your comfortable with obama's policies. >> he presents today the best argument for opportunity and education. >> we have not seen -- maria: kept business sitting on cash and unwilling to hire. >> it has happened and that is upsetting to me as well.
6:41 am
i want to hear more from the republicans that democrats have the best policies. >> we have always work force participation rate since the 1970s, people are not working and president obama has done everything he can to stand in the way of economic growth and punish businesses across the country. maria: we will get a latest numbers, the jobless claims and tomorrow we get the labor department report, good to have you both on the show. please come back soon. see you, up next with 32 weeks of wild market swings and no end insight what does this vacation time, where investors want to shake, peter kaufman will be with us talking markets. (vo) rush hour around here
6:42 am
starts at 6:30 a.m. - on the nose. but for me, it starts with the opening bell. and the rush i get, lasts way more than an hour. (announcer) at scottrade, we share your passion for trading. that's why we've built powerful technology to alert you to your next opportunity. because at scottrade, our passion is to power yours.
6:43 am
so you're a small business expert from at&t? yeah, give me a problem and i've got the solution. well, we have 30 years of customer records. our cloud can keep them safe and accessible anywhere. my drivers don't have time to fill out forms. tablets. keep it all digital. we're looking to double our deliveries. our fleet apps will find the fastest route. oh, and your boysenberry apple scones smell about done. ahh, you're good. i like to bake. add new business services with at&t and get up to $500 in total savings.
6:44 am
6:45 am
has taken this is joy during the pyjamas report, this is a crucial data point for the federal reserve as it mulls over the timing of an interest-rate increase. joining the conversation now is peter hoffman. good to see. thanks for joining us. think the fed raises rates? >> i think it should. i don't know if it will. >> what you think it should come into is to get off zero? >> it has to get off zero. there hasn't been an interest-rate rise in nine years. the economy is being
6:46 am
artificially clampdown because of the interest rates. i don't think the fed should be in the business of providing crack cocaine to the stock market and if your doctor prescribes an antibiotic every time you had a cold or cool muscle by the time you really had an infection the antibiotic wouldn't work so there is no gas left in a tank, no bullets left in the gun. however you want to phrase it the economy is doing at least okay. everyone can agree is at least okay and it has to come up. lower rates, you hear a lot about the bogyman of inflation which hasn't happened yet but lower rates have been hammering seth shippers and no incentive to save, hammering pensioners and those on fixed incomes and you don't hear a lot about i think a real contributor to income inequality. people get to speculate and that further divides things and there is an incredible irony because
6:47 am
those who praise this administration for the economy turning around and unemployment going lull, maybe it is time to rest of this economy is fragile, and employment is illusory, they tried to have it both ways. it needs to rise. >> we are on record we think it will be september all the law will say a it is probably still may be a little over 50% even though futures are significantly lower in terms of that. we do think the economy is strong enough to take it and it makes sense to move. it is hard to know because some of the academic studies would save the fed does consider the volatility of the market as part of their decision. it matters what is going on. in one since you would think they wouldn't because the numbers seem to me good enough to move the it makes sense to
6:48 am
get off of zero, and to set the precedent they're going to be slow in going up so come september, don't do anything for the rest of the year. dagen: peter is an emergency room doctor for a company in bad financial straits. talk about hot topic, the energy companies, the ones that are highly levered. how much of the danger are they to the financial system and broader economy? >> start with the big picture. to me there has been a conspiracy going of is 60 years, the middle east raises prices, raises prices on oil until the country gets an edge about maybe we should explore alternative energy and is in is that gets ahead, prices lower, the alternative energy goes away. >> solar and wind are taking market share. >> they are not ready should have been or where they could have been. conversely now that prices are
6:49 am
so low they will keep those prices artificially low, they're going to drive a lot of u.s. oil companies out of business and so the problem for a lot of oil companies icy the we work with, banks are reviving collateral twice a year and that is a problem. their hedges for most of them have run off or are running off and the fed is basically telling regulated financial institutions i don't want to see any more loans and highly leveraged oil companies. they want money to drill, but they don't have any and that leads to the opportunities. maria: these oil companies are leveraged and as we see oil prices continue to come down economics will not make sense, some by big issues i think this is sort of the really and talked not talked about in of the issues that could be a much bigger issue for the economy. how many oil companies do you estimate? >> a lot.
6:50 am
we talked to them, we are hired by some of them, the opportunities that are here are for stronger, better yield companies to buy -- i think you will see deals, makes a lot more sense for them to buy reserves rather than to drill for them, and i think there's a lot of private equity money on the sidelines ready to come in to try to take a vantage of this as well. oil is a commodity at the end of the day and there are opportunities. winners and losers. it is an incredibly cyclical business. nobody should be surprised that it is a cyclical business. to your point you made a minute ago when companies were making money at $100 a barrel now that it is $50 a barrel, they have to do twice as much to do what they were doing before. >> which is why i think this is a dangerous story and quite troubling. we will talk more about it.
6:51 am
please come back soon. peter kaufman joining us, star wars fans all over the world going nuts today, first-ever "star wars: the force awakens" toy extravaganza has begun. more on that coming up, stay with us.
6:52 am
6:53 am
6:54 am
maria: caller read our alert, disney hoping to drive more height for its upcoming star wars film, star wars of force awakens, and boxing toys around the world, they go on sale friday at midnight. give a is your expectation, disney building up the hype, but still three months away. >> exactly. the premier of the film is december 18th the star wars fans are rapid and coming out in
6:55 am
droves for this massive and boxing. disney started releasing some wednesday with the global live streaming in australia but retailers in the united states are selling some starting midnight tonight. toys r us, wal-mart, target call open at midnight for all the fans to coming, times square in new york city, having a big party in times square. dagen: if you are doing this you later on a dating apps, near disney nerd some it is okay to be nearly 40s losing your brain -- >> is this going to be enough to break media sites out of the fund, they have gone smashed this summer. a whole host of reasons. >> you would think i would think disney is hoping it drives those theme park action.
6:56 am
certainly the film itself, maybe to accompanies -- >> star wars is major and this is the first star wars film disney is doing since purchasing lucas films so that is a big moment for them to come, the bank. >> good to have you on a program. great to see you today, come home. we will be right back.

7:33 am
upcoming meeting with trump and his potential third party run? >> well, i doubt trump will sign this if for no other reason it would appear backing down one thing trump doesn't do is back down i think reince priebus is under pressure from donors to at least draw attention to the issue as in first dean i think what is what is going on wants to make it clear to all other republican voters, 70, 80% have not backed trump so far he is not sure if he is going to support the eventually republican nominee not about degrading it is about telling the rest of the party this guy might not be serious about backing a republican candidate. >> trump is not going to do anything anybody asks him to do. he is not maria he is going to continue to muddy the republican nomination that is have a he what those been doing whole time this is further proof of that. maria: wow. >> the idea donors telling them, this is exactly the point that he needs to be -- >> you know make himself a party to, either.

7:35 am
we've got matching issues. >> hillary -- >> i think that the issue would be very significant, in the race with hillary especially given other thingsing that on in the race with hillary right now who knows what is possibly predictions what is possible in politics turn out silly as predictions about by these by these not possibly having peel in the democratic party. >> what about john the clinton staffer who signaled that he wants to plead the fifth amendment rather than answer about his role in installing her personal server in west chester. >> i think a lot questions he doesn't want to answer why exactly did hillary clinton ask him to do this what security did he put in place staekt asked him to set this up i think all sorts of technical questions this guy doesn't want to answer maybe concerns about getting himself in -- former secretary's life you don't know the one not willing to testify a few others are willing to do so. >> i think the other question for him is there a second server.

for calling in have you set a date for dinner with donald trump. >> going to do it as soon as we possibly can, maria we have known each other for years, our policies, our positions on immigration particularly across the southern board obviously must different but i think in some ways trump because of his own bellicose nature may be being demonized i think, with an soften his rugs accomplish same results in terms of boarded security to like mexican people to know him as i know him vice versa i want him to speak to some ordinary, latins who work in mexican restaurant while enjoying the polly. >> where are you going for the food. >> i got a couple of ideas, audible as soon as the story broke yesterday "the wall street journal," they mexican restaurant starting you know giving me a call, why not why not me, but there are a couple of places it will either be in los angeles or right here in new york.

8:10 am
frustration vis-a-vis chooifrn specifically is that we're not using leverage to make best possible deal scooping up as many inexpensive products as we possibly can putting our manufacturer you know, our own people i think he wants to level that playing field, i do not believe and just -- a place again i go back to that he caveat that i am a dow jones stay-at-home investor, i do not believe that he wants to use carrots onerous that he styles stifles international trade. >> to a, honey. >> he talked about putting, talks about tuting tariffs on comortsdz products from china "the wall street journal" called him would be worst president since her bert hoover on trade, so -- his my issue about when -- said about protects the border immigrants in this country and about trade. you say he needs to son of it
8:11 am
but he doesn't son of once committed to something he is committed to deporting all illegal immigrations, including children not backing off on that regardless of your beautiful voice and your power of influence. >> you know i am not so sure of that again i am not going to speak for the candidate, i believe that his harshness toward immigrants i believe that announcement off handidly rapist drug dealer comment in same sentence it was unconsistented i am giving him the benefit of the doubt the problem the statement resonated amongst a portion of the republican tloshth very harsh on this issue, and helped propel trump ironically this accidental antiimmigrant campaigner, to forefront of the republican ranks.
8:12 am
now, that he is, i think that he will continue to gain that momentum and that strength i think he can moderate can afford to moderate that power tends to moderate historically you mentioned hoover all the rest you know wishy-washy presidents one thing all of us can agree this will not be a wishy-washy candidate i think that it is intriguing third-party business i don't think it will come to that i am hoping i may be wrong it may be guy i have known all these years is -- as has changed in, some meaningful or substantive way i don't think so i think there is still room for him to reach out, to the left, and asian grant community send your best and brightest strongest energetic i think this guaymas roy guy ha to moderate. >> oil prices searching for

8:28 am

8:30 am
>> welcome back. breaking news, the latest reports on jobless claims, expectations call for jobless claims at 275,000. that mome number momentarily. 282,000 is the number for jobless claims for the last week, that's higher than you would expect. and the market, actually, has been strengthening. >> and you wonder if this number leads people to believe that the fed may not raise in september. we're tracking the numbers and we're up 80 points on the dow industrial average and s&p higher on the heels of a 300 point rally yesterday. scott martin? >> hey, it looks good.
8:31 am
and interesting thing about the jobs number. this was clearly a handicap on the jobs number. the risk tomorrow, the jobs number is going to be decent and the risk-- . dagen: that's on the low side. >> that's not terrible considering where we had been. you mentioned earlier, about the wage growth and let's just say it's 0.3%, 0.4%. that's putting the rate hike back on the table. >> i don't think that's bad news, i do not think that's bad news. go ahead. [laughter] >> and the direction right now, after diving to the lowest level in years, and keeping investors on edge and what is triggering these wild swings is john who hahofmeister, formerly shell. >> thank you.
8:32 am
maria: what's going on in terms of the price and impact? because we've been talking about this and i find that this is going to be a worrisome trend for the broader economy because you've got a lot of shale companies, oil companies that are highly leveraged ap as prices go down, are we going to see bankruptcies and see, they're going to have to redo the credit lines and does that mean that this is going to have an impact on the broad landscape? what do you think? >> i think there's going to be a lot of negative planning for next year, it starts in september, october, in the industry here this houston. we'll see a lot of companies cutting back their expectations for next year if we continue to see these lower oil prices. and the consequence of that is, yes, i believe there will be an increase in bankruptcy, an increase in companies merging together. there's been a lot of value destruction, maria, over the last eight, nine months in in industry and when i mean value destruction, people have cut costs dramatically and when they set down a drill set, there's a lot of damage to the
8:33 am
tools, a lot of things get lost, cannibalization of parts. anything you can do to not spend money is what the industry is doing, many of them, during this period. when you come back from that, you've got to eat that cost somehow and still find the money to come back. we're in for a rough time, the fourth quarter, first, second quarter of next year, until we see some kind of signal, some kind of trend that says there's an upward swing on the oil price. it's the only way to come back. maria: wow. are you worried that that impacts the broad economy? >> yes, i am. 200,000 people have lost their jobs in this industry and imagine if detroit announced 200,000 job losses. you'd have everybody from the white house to the congress, you'd have everybody saying, what's going on in the auto industry? how can we help them? well, 200,000 real people are out of work in the oil and gas
8:34 am
industry, not a word. the industry is doing the best it can under the circumstances, but inle we see an increase in the price level it's not a good outlook for the economy, as well as for the industry itself. >> john, we've talked about the industry and the companies that borrowed, what about the lenders. maria: bingo. >> what kind of risk lies there as companies that lent the guys the money and they not get paid back? >> well, these are pretty smart people and i think the texas banks and the kind of-- the comeback from 2008-2009 i don't think-- we may see bad loans and write-offs, i haven't seen any signals from any banks that they're overly troubled or worried. it may have that they had liens against the equipment and that equipment may be valueless. if there's serious damage to the financial industry, remains to be scene.
8:35 am
i don't hear anyone talking about it. dagen: you're talking about a need for higher oil prices, but lower prices benefit the individual and any business that's a big consumer of fuel. >> you're absolutely right. and so, what the industry cares about is what's the sweet spot where the consumer feels a fair price, an affordable price and the industry feels a price that returns on investment? i think we have to keep in mind that a lot of the economic growth in in country is that 11, 12, 13, 14 even, came from the massive spending that was taking place in the oil and gas industry. nobody has really recognizan recognizance-- recognized publicly, even though it was anemic growth, were it not for the oil industry. >> and we recognize that on this program. >> and richard fisher was the president of the dallas federal reserve, told us a year and a
8:36 am
half ago that much of the jobs created in the last several years in 2007 have been around energy and not talking shale projects, but manufacturing, a lot of, you know, sort of second tri -- seconda secondary industries attached to the oil industry. >> if we get back to 60, 70, $80 a barrel oil, we are not going to crash the economiment, but what you would think from the oil price, it has impact on capital spending overall. and-- >> go ahead, and tell me. >> i'm worried about 2016, 17, and 18 because of the drop in capital spending and what that will do to the oil price when
8:37 am
demand actually exceeds suppliment that could be a problem for us. maria: you're talking about 60, 70, $80 a barrel oil, we're at 46. do you think it's soon? >> probably next year. i think we're bottoming out now, but we'll be down half a million barrels of production in the u.s. i frankly think that the saudies will let their production let it go down because they're spending an awful lot of money to maintain the status quo and if the production was down a million barrels a day and the u.s. was down half a million barrels a day, there goes the is your mr. us and-- surplus and we're back in e equilibrium. maria: and thank you, john. not calling it the every-man
8:38 am
car, $35,000 in more colors than black. it's no model t. stay with us. >> welcome back to another tennis channel court report, a special presentation for fox business network. i'm jennifer williams. the reigning u.s. open champion took center stage in new york and both sailed into the third round. serena williams is on court for her 22nd major title and the elusive counter slam as she got past a big hitter in straight sets moving on to face an american in the third round. and there was a good day at the ocean. the croatian coming through the russian to book his place in round three. downtown forget tennis channel's extensive coverage of the u.s. open at 8:30 eastern with u.s. open tonight wrapping
8:39 am
up the day's action at 11 p.m. i asked my dentist
8:40 am
if an electric toothbrush was going to clean better than a manual. he said sure... but don't get just any one. get one inspired by dentists. with a round brush head. go pro with oral-b. oral-b's rounded brush head cups your teeth to break up plaque, and rotates to sweep it away. and oral-b delivers a clinically proven superior clean vs. sonicare diamond clean. my mouth feels super clean. oral-b. know you're getting a superior clean. i'm never going back to a manual brush.
8:41 am
8:42 am
>> welcome back. want to take a look at the markets. we're expecting a big rally in the markets and believe it has to do with what we're seeing coming out of europe. earlier, the ecb president mario draghi held a news conference and the bond buying program could extend beyond september, 2016. the ecb cut the growth forecast across the board and premature, mario draghi says it's
8:43 am
premature whether the recent events could have a lasting impacts, opening the door to what the markets wanted and renewed down side risk. nobody wanted to hear the words. >> read between the lines, i think that's china. i think he's talking about major trading partner, which is china, which is weak and something they count on for growth. china is weakening and that's the weak outlook for europe. maria: dagen, it has to be the reason that the dollar. dagen: yes, we'll see it's critical to what they do here. mario draghi and everybody in europe wants the euro lower because it helps with exports. but in terms here, do we start importing inflation? that would keep the fed on hold. and also the bond buying program in europe did get expanded in a way that it's not
8:44 am
expanded, but the rules were changed at that the ecb can now buy one third of any-- that's the limit on any issue up from 25%. so that gives them more leeway to buy certain issues. >> it certainly is moving markets and the qe is going smoothly and that it could extend beyond. >> the more stimulus, draghi would come at some and maybe not admit to more qe, but they're ready to pump the stimulus over there. that's why you're seeing the rallies in the european markets, they've doubled in the last hour or so on the heels of this draghi press conference and that's stoking gains in the u.s. as well. dagen: that's what investors are saying, we want more.
8:45 am
>> who is your dealer today? mario draghi. maria: that's going on. and big rally for stock prices and the dollar as the euro goes down out of the headlines. they're lowering their inflation forecast, actually, that's another headline here, no inflation to speak of in europe or the u.s. >> you see more of it, starting to see more of it here. you're starting to see upward weight. basically all of the central bankers have been in bed together. does janet yellen get out, take off her jam-jams, and put on her work clothes and-- >> no longer a pajama party. >> it shows the fred-- fed has no pressure on it to tighten the currency or straighten the currency because
8:46 am
