investors are unimpressed. it's thursday, july 11th and you're watching "world wide exchange" on cnbc. features are indicating a higher open the dow jones industrial average now indicated to open higher by about 86 points. nasdaq higher by 84 and s&p higher by 9 and a half it did cross over 3,000er infirst time yesterday but fail close there. take a look at the treasury market
let's take a look at over sees trading. you can see the japanese nikkei higher and the south korean kospi up all eyes on chairman powell. they looked what he had to say green arrows across the board and the italian index holding up the best but again green all around europe. now you're looking live at new orleans are a major tropical storm is taking aim. forecasters say it could make land fall as a hurricane by this weekend. oil prices are higher today. they were higher yesterday by about 4 and a half%. near $61 a barrel. we're going to continue to monitor the storm and bring you any new developments as they
come they're already taking precautions in the gulf of mexico switching gears, jay powell is testifying before the senate banking committee this time. yesterday he went before the house and signalled a rate hike could be coming at the end of the month. let's bring in chief market strategist at ameritrade powell had a bit more off a dovish tone than i think some were expecting pricing in 25. and now there's 33%er chance we could go 50 basis points where are you right now? what did jay powell say that may be informing the way you're looking at this market >> i think given the fact the fed in general tends to be a bit more conservative.
i would lean to a 25% basis as you said after his testimony i think people got a bit excited that maybe we'll get a 50 given the past record, i would expect them to take it slowly as they lean on every time. and almost in a little bit off a trap here in the fact that the market has prused in a 25 basis points kbrg over 70 is usually a surety it's going to get done when it comes to probability it's something wie don't see at all. s you see that's been the juice that had the market rallied over the last few weeks i think as soon as this is done, the market is going to say what's next? and maybe with that though we have earnings coming up so maybe
that will help reinforce the market needs it. again we have slowed doup but it seems awfully hard to believe when you have a stock market, the economy is terrible. i find it funny when the market is doing well and yet people come on and say this a terrible situation. >> that's sotrue and that was the conversation i was having earlier in the hour. it feels like you could look at this glass half full orrer empty, depending on what your purview is the market is record highs sure there's are weak poibts but look at the jobs report we just had. is powell being appropriately cautious or otaking in almost too inside and the slowdown we're seeing outside >> and that's why i lean tortsz
a kpievr basis cut and let's face it we still have the major tariff story hanging over us. it's nice to have it not on the front page we get great insight on how things are going with the banks coming up with earning and it's going to be very interesting because as you and i both know rates getting cut the anticipation are the worst things that can happen they've done a good job imagining into this. weal are see what they can do when their money -- and you would think that in this environment, a bank like wells fargo omight benefit because the average 30-year loan in a year has gone from 5 foit 52% to
3.7% so i don't know that you would see that kind of demand in a 30 hch year mortgage. wie needs to look at when they can come out with rate cuts, they seem to demand our servess and i dent see that professionally or internationally. and it made me reinforce what chairman powell said we are slowing down maybe more than people think. >> you make good point there, j.j. now that we've heard from powell at least one day how are you putting this all the 92 play when you're utilizing a strategy infor the market? >> we see what our clienlts and release what they actually did
interesting data was for had first siej since 2016, they are sellersff assed pup. that's very unique it could be because we had such an amazing first half, no matteder how much people worry, our clients were taking profits and one of the ones they sold were ams it's the number one sold stock on the month of june so the investor, how they're looking at the market, maybe ea this wall of worry is coming and with that they want to take profits ahead off the slowering of summer or all the otherer news that's kinds ofute there i think we forget there's brexit on the horizon because we forget he's going to be in the it day >> makes sense
we're going to put it all together >> thank you, j.j. crossing now goldwin putting holds on costco, target and bed, bath, and beyond shares moving lower this morning. the cops well more than 6% last quarter. and recognizes the team for fund smtal points joining me is alex --. i thik we need a minute if we can. what is going on betted, bralgt, and paurn if we can be fair about that >> i don't know if we want to say it's falling aparted yet but 7 billion in sales plus or minus in a thousand stores. it's a having a difficult time.
ilities are reflective off a retailer that stood still while the industry was changing round them and recently they had some outside investors come in, create an activist campaign and you have to give them credit for curening wut they rick nugged a few of the it signals, which is a reluctance to think about somebody may attract a new consurer that's really the key number you want to look for with retail businesses this is a business that conti e continued to hemorrhage sales. in a category thatute to be cell pvly sable. and you look at all the outside influences and you say in this particular case
unexpected and they were reluctant to change the business model that had been working for them for 20 plus years. dwlb kboent go if everyone knows but they 1 buy bye baby, world market, cost plus and others. wlauts do you think? your turn around artist. you help them fix and change things what do you suggest sest they do first on the deck snp >> so two things need to happen simultaneously the it first is really to get your hansds around the operation and one, two, three at most. operational priorities and going back to the nex off a business
and think about how you can leverage those noncore assets to improve the balance sheet or generate a little flexibility to invest back on the operate side. interesting thing also you hear about the struggling retailers. they've taken on a lot of can debt, many through private equity transactions. so for them it's improving their financial leverage and focus there's an advantage and disadvantage to being a full on brick and mortar like bed and bath is. they with create an environment where the can customer is at the center of the universe and this motion of customer sen tristy and the ways the customer may want to interact with your business is critical in retail today. if they create flexibility to
invest by improving their balance sheet and c balance reducing the number of things you're working on could be a win for the vestors from an outside in, really ratchet down the number of things they're working on. and not to forgo the fact that their can competitive advantages, their thousand brick and mortar stores around the country. there's still plus or minus $3 trillion of retail sales inside of brick and mortar stores it's not as if the store is going way. but the new thinking is how the retailer puts the customer that incenter of the universe and then levage the ats that they have and try to copy amazon or
somebody else. >> i hope they're listening to your prescription. we'll see if they can make improvement and turn this thing around >> my pleasure can coming up? big battle brewing with france we'll take you live with the latest and now bad blood here 185 reason why she celebrated today. ♪ you should be mad they gave this guy a promotion. you should be mad at forced camaraderie. and you should be mad at tech that makes things worse. but you're not mad, because you have e*trade, who's tech makes life easier by automatically adding technical patterns on charts and helping you understand what they mean. don't get mad. get e*trade's simplified technical analysis.

second derivative is starting to turn it. i'm looking at things like manufacturering and of course chairman powell did point to the global mulaces that is everywhere this is a theme we've been looking at for many haengss. and you can see the deal starting to roll over. i think door is open to 50 but hats rr a very unlikely saur >> i think the bigger worry is it the benefits from tax cuts are wearing off. and the trade war is likely to be somewhat prolonged because those issues are so complex. if i may just on markets for a moment we were over sold in december. so we've been standing by the tale off two halves narrative
which is markets were over sold and we felt they would rally we're obviously north off there, making new highs the situation this late cycle is a bit precarious a when the fed is forced to cut after hiking nine times, it means that a recession is not far behind >> and it's been a very long time since we've had a recession but that doesn't mean it has to be coming. that sort of changed the game on monetary policy and you think quantitative easing is not out of the realm of possibility to happen again >> number un the business cycle can't be defeated. right now we have this classic push and pull between the cost off capitol and growth
people aren't assessing, in my view, the downturn in growth that will likely come being born overseas and that is typical if the fed can't kill the business cycle, it shouldn't try to boss that's a natural part of capitol markets and free markets. then we should expect a slow down to come and this idea that the feds' job is to sustain a recovey forever doesn't seem to square with history or really what the feds mandate is longer term business cycles in my view are necessary and should be embraced as what mocks markets work well. >> tl >> there's a lot to digest futures are higher at this moment but who knows.
we've got a big day ahead. year also going to watch oil prices as it gains strength in the gulf of mexico "squawk box" begins right now. the rally goes op. we'll have a full run down today's big market drivers plus we'll show you what the fed chair said yesterday and a big battle betwine the u.s. and france under taxing companies like facebook and google now considering retaliatory measures on french cars or wine. who would notice it's thursday, july 11th, 2019 and "squawk box" begins right now.
