2:02 pm
earnings and stocks are looks expensive. melissa: you're saying a rising stock market is killing economy? >> no. i think the fed trying to keep interest rates low -- melissa: would thrive the economy and it has not worked at all. so they're not connected. >> reverse relationship. melissa: what do you guys think? >> think have is no relation. main street is not back in this market. we slowly started to hear retirement plans were starting to put money back into this market but for the most part people are trying to make ends meet. you see it in retail sales. if you're not shopping at walmart and target, what are you doing? you're trying to pay bills and put food on table. melissa: file under things you can't make up. hundreder biden, son of vice president joe biden, joined the holdings of ukraine's private gas producer. put all the connections together, spencer. the vice president's son has an economic interest in the energy independence of ukraine. problem there?

2:04 pm
job at same caliber than son the vice president. >> can't be easy being joe biden's son. just kidding, moving on, beats music service has only 111,000 registered accounts. we have been celebrating potential deal with apple. apple hasn't even confirmed. this is subscriber base of beats. tough compare this to spotify which currently has 24 million active users globally. >> i was scratching my head even before these name members came out. i'm scratching my head even more. this deal does not make complete sense. may not even happen first of all. if they do announce it would be great to see what apple's rationale. melissa: bought tom and gisele's house. has to be happening. $20 million yesterday. >> you snow what they're competing against? pandora has 250 million registered users. spotify has 25 million registered users. the gap there is enormous. >> i haven't heard anyone say, thank god apple is buying this. >> they have jimmy ivy and dr. dre.

2:06 pm
have too many relationships going. melissa: so you're cruel, you're mean. you want to cut them off? >> unfollow. >> natural life cycle with a relationship. melissa: cow, what do you guys think. >> i think spencer, i'm cutting you off, i think it is quite amazing twitter created an etiquette. now polite to follow people but unpolite to unfollow them. in a matter of what? only 2008 we first heard of twitter. >> can't wait until this gets hacked and everyone find out -- it will be really bad. >> wow. melissa: it is. when you unfollow someone, finding out later you were muted is not great but less hurtful than you were just unfollowed. i had a friend who unfollowed me. it hurt my feelings. like, what did i do that annoys you? >> too sensitive. melissa: i don't know. it hurt my feelings. i shouldn't have admitted that. let's move on. i can't believe i admitted that. l.a. clippers owner donald sterling speaking out making the whole thing a whole lot worse. >> what has he done? can you tell me? big magic johnson, what was hed?
2:07 pm
he has got aids. did he do any business? i would like, did he help anybody in south l.a.? is that someone we want to respect and, tell our kids about? i think he should be ashamed of himself. melissa: yikes! >> does he need that many buttons undone on shirt? >> that was least of his troubles but i appreciate that. >> in that interview donald sterling says magic johnson needs to go into the background. i think donald sterling needs to go into the background after that interview. >> the man is not even worth talking about. he is disgusting. melissa: does he have dementia? this is one of the things his wife said watching afterwards, he really seems -- >> try that on my kid tonight. i will try that. i have dementia. this is why i can't remember. honest to god. melissa: like he didn't know whether to interrupt to inject some sense or let it roll. so unbelievable. >> that's what he did. >> try not to reoffend while
2:08 pm
you're apologizing is takeaway. >> good point. melissa: he offended a whole new crowd of people with his apology. >> when you say i shouldn't go any further, don't go any further. melissa: anyway. thanks you guys were fabulous. congress wants answer. the first but certainly not the last hearing on high frequency trading on capitol hill. we'll hear from a man who defended it. cme executive chairman terry duffy is next. if you're looking for love in all the wrong places there is an app for that. move over tinder. we'll tell you how linkedin can land you a job and a hot date. more "money" coming up. ♪ 20.

2:11 pm
melissa: the debate over high frequency trade something speeding into washington today. the senate holding a hearing to look at how this affects the derivatives markets. joining me fresh off the senate testimony is cme group executive chairman and president terry duffy. thank you so much for joining us. what do you think of the testimony? >> well, i mean i thought it was good. i think that it's good congress
2:12 pm
is taking an interest in a topic that the american public obviously has a big interest in after the "60 minutes" interview and the book. melissa: yeah. >> when someone makes a very profound statement that the markets are rigged, that is pretty damaging statements to be saying on "60 minutes." not surprised that congress is looking into it and rightfully so. my point to show the differences between equity markets and markets that we at cme run which is vertical silo markets, no the a fragmented equity market. the big issue i'm trying to accomplish here that to make sure this town doesn't come up with something where they pull out one brush to try to paint the whole industry. that there are two brushes. they understand the difference between the regular futures market and securities world. >> do you think high frequency trade something good for bad for the market? >> i think all trade something good for the market as long as it is policed properly. that is the most important thing. think there is ecosystem in the marketplace where more participants are better than less. it helps price discovery.
2:13 pm
help keep bid offer spreads tighter. there are people that call high frequency trading all bad types of names. melissa: yeah. >> there is a lot of high frequency traders. melissa: cftc economist carol link co, is high frequency trade something preventing competition. >> no, that is not true. no one is preventing competition. everyone can come in with computer to trade the markets as long as you go by the regulations. i don't believe they're preventing competition whatsoever. melissa: is it unfair someone can get their quicker? does there need to be more regulation? should washington do anything in your opinion? >> what is important that you draw the distinction between our world and securities world. when you place an order into cme systems, melissa, the only one that knows you placed the order is you. there is nobody else including every other high frequency trader. melissa: terry, i'm not sure that is answering the question. is there anything that you government should do to regulate high frequency trading more? >> the government needs to look at fragmentation in the
2:14 pm
marketplace. needs to look at dark pools. needs to look at things like that. needs people trading high frequency one moment and trading strategy the next. they should focus more on market structure. melissa: do you think dark pools are a big problem? >> i believe anytime you do not have the true price discovery of any product is a problem. and when you have it so fragmented and 40% of the u.s. equity market is dark, hard to determine exactly what that price could be. in our world that doesn't operate that way. melissa: did you suggest to them they should look into that? have you said it privately, do you think it will happen? >> i said it publicly and privately to members of the congress. i think there should be looked into dark pools and public should have the best possible price and have transparency that leads into the price. when who% of the market is dark hard to give them confidence -- 40% of the market is dark. melissa: thank you, terry, appreciate your time. >> thank you, melissa, for more on the debate on high frequency trading. charlie gasparino is on the phone. charlie what do you think of just you heard?
2:15 pm
>> for a change someone talk as little sense. terry duffy was being diplomatic in his answers but he is right on the money. one of the things that michael lewis, the reason why his book was such a disservice it took the debate away from the real problem. the real problem is not that someone could trade faster. the real problem isn't that some people cheat. because they do and they always have. the real problem, you don't have one market anymore. you have 50 markets. when you have 50 markets you have a dysfunctional system. and that's the problem. we have -- by the way when you have 50 markets, makes it easier for some people to cheat. does that mean, our system, our markets are rigged? no. but there's a degree of dysfunction that occurs here. that is why you have "flash crashes." there is no, the price discovery is funky, okay? you could have a print in one market and it may show someplace else and you know, during a brief period of time. and then, at some points when the computers don't work, right, it call comes crashing down. that is what happened.
2:16 pm
that is what terry said. that is the most important thing here. could you end this debate tomorrow if the sec ever got the brains or the cajones, i don't know what it is, i don't know what is preventing them from doing this maybe they're afraid of messing with goldman sachs because goldman sachs own as dark pool and get the dark pools under control. very interesting goldman sachs attacked not the problem because it would hurt them to attack the problem which is the dark pools and attacked this side issue of high frequency trading. if you notice, gary cohn in that "wall street journal" op-ed attacked high frequency trading without talking about the fact that goldman sachs makes a lot of money operating one of these markets. it also serves them very well to have price discovery in other markets so they can hide trades. melissa: charlie gasparino. we've got breaking news. we've got to go. thank you so much. we vick brag news out of chicago. flights have been stopped going in and out of midway and o'hare airports. the faa says it is because of smoke in a radar facility.
2:17 pm
workers have been evacuated from that facility. there is a ground stop in effect that means no flights are going in and out of the city. we'll keep watching this for more developments. this is breaking news out of chicago. there is a ground stop in effect as you can see from the video. no one is going in and out. they are sitting tight. speaking of vermont, a few things come to mind. maple syrup, ben & jerry's. now it will be known as having the highest minimum wage in the land. what is going on up there! we're fired up about this one. plus you may be pretty proud of yourself for drinking a glass of red wine at night. after all it is good for your health, right? wrong! new research blows that old theory way out of the water. i think this is a case for dr. manny. i don't like this one. did you ever have too much money? ♪.

2:24 pm
the chemical compound in wine or things like that, prevents heart disease, prevents cancer. according to the study, 700 of people out of italy the answer might be no. they looked at survey of people in village. they ask how much wine do you drink and measure by-products of wine. clearly there was no difference when it comes to heart disease and cancer. the biggest story, whether or not in the supplement side of the equation -- melissa: so a lot of people are taking supplements? how do you say this particular whatever it is? >> res vary troll. that is the chemical, it is the compound that is commercial, oh, my god we found a cure for everything. a lot of people take it in pill forms. that clearly not shown to be of any benefit. would i say every longevity study we look at, alcohol moderation, consumption is important.
2:25 pm
so i am very bullish on wine and exercise and everything else in conjunction with a very positive lifestyle. if you're a wine drinker, don't stop it. it might not prevent disease but certainly won't hurt you. melissa: if you ease back on thl activity is any less important. a new study find a woman over 30, lack of exercise is bigger cause of heart disease than smoking. what? what? >> absolutely. melissa: lack of exercise is worse -- >> worse than smoking. absolutely, one of the worst contributing factors. smoking is bad for at love reasons. if you stop smoking you get your health back in many ways. if you don't exercise at all ever, then you're doomed. doesn't matter at what age. you can start exercising at age of 30, age of 40. even a little bit afterwards. if you start exercising you get the same dynamic changes in your heart. that is exactly what these studies are showing. melissa: smoking is supposed to kill you? >> i know. i know but far more people, fewer people smoke than
2:26 pm
exercise, believe it or not. melissa: okay. >> actually one of the key factors in living longer. so you to the the one and got exercise. what else? melissa: for all my foulmouthed friends out there, a new study said cursing could be good for you. did you hear this one? it is positive and seemingly harmless emotional release. try telling that to your bottom. even better news, the more loose the word more noise you reap. can you bleeping believe that. >> i love to curse. i. melissa: do you? >> i do. melissa: i never hear you out in the hallways. >> i do. ask people that work with me. i have it very bad. but look, appears from a psychological, yes, you relief a lost inner tension. good, positive energy. the flip side of it is, that if you use the wrong words or if you use it to hurt somebody it is really not positive, it is really negative. that is the difference people
2:27 pm
have to pay attention. if you hurt somebody on purpose -- melissa: if i get really angry and in my office scream at top of my lungs, all kinds of words in it? but i get more tense because i'm screaming. that doesn't raise your blood pressure. >> good stuff. positive stress. melissa: all right. so i'm going to drink the wine, in moderation, work out and going to curse. got it. perfect. dr. manny. >> thank you, $30 co-pay for that. melissa: thieves targeting range rovers but not for reasons you might think. we'll tell you why it is really headlights that the bad guys are after. hmmm. maxing out the minimum wage. the faceoff as vermont blows past the president's 10.10 per hour. push to have highest minimum wage in the country. how long till other states follow suit. tweet me. more "money" coming up. ♪.

2:30 pm
2:31 pm
maria: the dow on track for another record close. let's go to market at the stock exchange. let me start with you. what do you think of this market? >> not surprised. we are in a raging bull market, three ways to play this marketing, aggressively long, or basically flat, you have to have the right stocks. linkedin, google, the nasdaq looks like short candidates but the market keeps chugging along and there has been a shift in rotation out of high growth names and the boring stocks into chevron, and chesapeake another one. all the oil and natural-gas
2:32 pm
plays are on fire. >> the dow and the s&p, not to get too excited about the nasdaq. a little bit of a move, a lot of underperformance, $0.08 below the highs from this year and this remains a markets of large cats that are rallying, you have 10% right now, the s&p actually hit new 52 week highs and the socks and the nyse, about 169 total stocks that hit new highs versus newly 500 last year, the market is a select few that are rallying, and the trend is bullish, the dow indians in the back to new highs but want to see more sustained ability here in this advance and more things participating. melissa: one thing, the minimum wage increase, too rich for president obama's blood, vt. minimum-wage $10.50 in the next four years leaving the other 49
2:33 pm
states in the dust. the first time a state has pushed beyond a $10.10 rate endorsed by the president but how long before the rest of the country follows suit? peter morris -- peter morici is here to do get out. >> it is good, we need a raise in the minimum-wage. when we don't raise it to keep up with the rate of inflation it is like a pay cut for the poor. we had a minimum rage with 1938, how has the economy done, i would characterize it as the greatest expansion in prosperity in the history of human civilization. melissa: peter morici, what do you thing? >> that economy we had of the last 56 years can't be attributed to the minimum wage but if we adjusted for inflation than after it has been raised last time about $8 and a quarter would be about right, $10.40 is not and will cause some unemployment in vermont. >> we have four forecasts, there
2:34 pm
will be some unemployment and also higher income for people but we have a reality we had a minimum wage that has worked well for along time. there is discussion about how high is too high, $10, $9, and it is a gradual increase. melissa: will people lose their job? >> i don't know over the long term if it is that clear. the porche spend -- skip give the more money they spend it under the economy. >> it is clear will cost more jobs because if we adjust the minimum-wage for how much inflation since 2009 would be between 8-1/4 an hour. it was a substantial real increase by 20%. and -- >> we had decades that kept up with inflation. >> that is not what we are talking about. let's stick with the fact. if you don't like the fact it is
2:35 pm
hard to have a discussion. the minimum wage was set at its present level in 2009 and since that time the amount of inflation -- >> why is that the right number? melissa: one at a time. what is your question? >> why is that the right number? the minimum wage was falling before that. >> when the president first came out of the box for minimum-wage 15 months ago, he had a much higher number and a much lower number would be consistent with the trend in inflation and minimum-wage going back 30, 40 years. $10.10 is not, there was a political ploy to get the republicans to vote no to make points in november. melissa: we had the ceo on yesterday who owns five stores and he was saying in order to pay a higher wage he would weigh a higher price. people pay more money to buy stuff. he is saying they won't get anything more because the price of everything is going. >> of course he will say that there are problems with raising
2:36 pm
the minimum wage. when we pay workers a wage they can't live on what do they do? melissa: a can't live on $10.10. >> what do they do when wages are slow? we have other social programs? who pays for that? we do. i am paying on my payroll and i would like to see walmart and others pay workers more. melissa: income inequality results may surprise, 32 of 35 district in the u.s. with the most income any quality happen to be represented by democrats. take a look at the top five and you will see districts from new york, pennsylvania, illinois and connecticut, all of those democratic and one in florida is represented by a republican. there was one of the republican district in that one. what do you think? >> these are largely incidental or coincidental correlations. you could also say the
2:37 pm
jurisdictions that have democrats have the highest growth. the reality is when you have a lot of growth in this economy in places like manhattan, chicago and so forth there is a lot of income inequality i really think these are coincidences. i don't attribute growth or inequality. >> new york will have more equally than mississippi. i will visit mississippi but staying in new york. melissa: a lot of mississippi lovers and i don't want to upset them. have to leave it there. and oscar-winning take on the value of perseverance. bill courtney mastered the art of the come back as inner-city football coach, here with a surprising lesson. his players taught him on the dignity of hard work. and cure the costar of entitlement. at an end of the day it is all about money. ♪ [ bell ringing, applause ]
