as we saw asian stocks down. european stocks are down, and ftse and dax also down 1 1/2% each. >> check out how commodities are reacting. oil is down to $46.34 a barrel concerned about slowing economic growth. gold unchanged. >> let's check the u.s. dollar. euro is stronger against the u.s. dollar as is the japanese yen at moment. >> yields on japanese treasury bond are ahead of the news. welcome to "fbn:am" this friday morning. your first look what is moving in today markets. first look at breaking news and what to expect in the day ahead. >> it is all about stocks for investors when the government does release its august jobs report. the report is always closely watched but this one is particularly important. now that the federal reserve is
on track to raise interest rates, they said they wanted to do so perhaps as early as this month in their 16th, 17th meeting with the unemployment rate ticking down to 5.2%. investors watch the labor participation rate. we're down near 30, 40 year lows. that is terrible. attracts number of people employed or actively looking for work. that number has held steady 62.6%. that is the lowest since 1977. wages also in focus. the fed has been concerned about a slow rise in wages despite steady increase in number of jobs. that is another key factor. people are mixed whether or not they will raise these rates now inn september. >> our next guest will know a lot about this. we have the steven richhiuto at mizuho securities is thinking. good morning.
>> good morning. >> should we take the jobs report with a gain of salt because likely revised higher as it usually is with the month of august? >> the problem with august, preliminary numbers tend to be on weaker side. the market is kind of expecting that. even though consensus numbers are up in the 220ish type area, some numbers being revised down last couple days. whisper number steps to be below that. anything above that people take sort of consensus type number and not really respond off it. but i do like the comments you made earlier about the labor force participation rate because i think that's very critical component as hourly earnings number that will come out in this morning's report. >> really quickly before i give
it to nicole, steve, if the number is above 175,000 the fed hikes this month or next year? >> no. i think it is still next year. i think market remains unchanged if the number comes in as low as 175. even though a consensus is 220, a number from 175 to 225 will be perceived as consensus number. that is somewhat expected by the marketplace and will not have too much impact on monetary policy on the long end of the curve. >> big picture can we get the labor force participation rate back up anyway? at this point it seems far away and distant. i would love to see everybody employed. a lot of people are part-timers or can't work at all because they have the jobs they need? >> you bring up a great point that getting to the whole idea this is global economy. we're clearly not one of the most competitive nations in the world. you have seen a job transferring overseas. a change of jobs into
technology. >> what about birth and death rate, isn't that part of it as well. >> 100% correct. that is why you're looking in numbers in the 200 area as opposed to previous expansion you were looking numbers at this point in the cycle of close to 300,000 per month. that's a big difference. that is one of the things showing up in the lower participation rate because we're just not creating those jobs. >> steve, thank you so much for your time, chief economist at mizuho securities. stay tuned for "mornings with maria" for complete coverage jobs report as well as market reaction. that starts 6:00 a.m. here on fox business. >> turning to politics, vice president joe biden speaking about his potential run for the white house. he says he sun sure he will mount a campaign only months after his son's death. >> i will be straightforward with you. the most relevant factor in my decision is whether my family and i have an emotional energy

they're sliding down a bit. 46.48 is your quote. on concerns about a slowing global economy and gold prices essentially flat. nicole: check the u.s. dollar ahead of jobs data. euro and japanese yen showing strength against green back. >> for your yield on the 10-year treasury, yields are at 2.13% this morning nicole. nicole: just a quick talk about what the fed funds futures are betting. this is all about the jobs report today. right now we're seeing 27% for september rate hike. 40% for october. and 60% are betting that it is going to be december. >> so by end of the year it will likely happen. nicole: you can count on it almost, almost right? welcome to "fbn:am," your first look here the latest breaking news and what to expect for day ahead. we got you covered. >> it is with about job, jobs and more jobs. investors get government release.
the data always closely watched, particularly important now that the federal reserve is absolutely on track to raise interest rates. the imf said no. key fed officials have said no. but we'll see. this is expectations. 220,000 jobs added. unemployment down to 5.2%. investors also watching what is called the labor force participation rate. it tracks number of people who either have jobs or actively looking for them. that number did hold steady at 62.6% back in july. but that was lowest since 1977. wages, a big deal, the fed has been concerned about the slow rise in wages, despite steady increase in number of jobs. you have to pay people more to go out to spend the money. nicole: right. that labor force participation rate is so frustrating. will today's jobs report seal the deal for fed on rate move? we have gary b. smith, kadina group. president and fox news contributor. joins us on the telephone.
gary, i will kick it off what jpmorgan and bank of america are saying, then you tell me what you're thinking. jpmorgan thinks the fed stands pat and bank of america think they actually raise. both put the hedge if one way or another and they can change their stance. jpmorgan says the fed doesn't raise this round and bank of america says yes. what do you say, gary. >> just in response to what banks said, basically saying they're going to raise unless they don't raise and we can go really either way and we'll see what happens so. they have certainly walked a fine line of never being completely wrong. i'll tell you what i think has happened, is going to happen. always interesting, first of all when you look at jobs number because it is never really jobs number per se because that gets revised up or down in coming months. what is really, i think fed is going to look at, how the market reacts to the jobs number. say the jobs number is 220,000.
if the market foes shooting up, everyone thinks oh, my gosh, that's great. i think that actually gives fed more impetus to raise rates. they will think okay, it is okay out there. the psyche of the investing public is okay. now is probably a food -- good time to raise rates. >> if the fed raises rates two weeks time what message does that send to other central banks, imf? look at global environment we're in. it would be daring for our central bank to hike. >> totally agree but now i'm wondering if other economies are looking at the u.s. as an isolated example because, you know, as well as we're doing, and gdp growth, at least we're chugging along, it could be a little bit better, you got flip side. some european economies, even australia, might be sinking into recession. china of course we talked about many times. i'm not sure they view a fed raise as something, oh, okay,
well, it is okay overall. i think now everyone is operating independently. nicole: gary, i'm not sure that the fed watches the markets, and to your point, i get what you're saying, unless it's a big move. unless it's 500 points or a thousand points. if it is a few hundred points, understanding psyche of investors, investors have become very accustomed to volatility of late. i thought we were talking on tight wire trying to guess one of those things which way we will fall. big picture, nouriel roubini saying that the fed won't because he is worried about global growth story slowing, china being a big factor that that in fact could factor in. what do you think about that? >> i don't often agree with roubini because he operates at fringe. in this case i do. i think the fed is worried about the volatility. i think they're worried about the psyche out there. i think they're going to make a conclusion, you know what? things are so wild out there, we
can do this in object. so we don't have to do it in september. we can wait a month and see if things calm down in that case- nicole: gary, 10 seconds left, 25 basis points or 50 basis points if they dot hike? >> 25 basis points in october. >> he actually did a real change. >> unless they don't. nicole: you want us to rewind in case. gary b. smith, thanks so much. >> you're welcome. nicole: appreciate you got up with us. be sure to watch "mornings with maria." maria bartiromo complete coverage of august jobs report, market reaction, starting 6:00 a.m. eastern time right here on the fox business network. >> all right. looking forward, let do politics. vice president joe biden speaking about his potential run for the white house but he says he is unsure if he will mount a campaign only months after his son's death. >> i will be straightforward with you. the most relevant factor in my
