6:02 am
last week thing people need to know as it relates to interest rates and credit the united states and individual consumer at the lowest level of interest they pay on their credit. mortgages, consumer loans, student loans in the last decade. all of these things do very well for the u.s. economy. this happened in 1998 as we all remember. i don't do gets permit for the united states. nicole: it certainly is a contagion for asia, jobs hilsenrath. why is china so important. >> china is the world's second-largest economy driving assets we watch carefully. why has oil prices fall below $40 a barrel? the thesis a few months ago was because we are fracturing so much in the u.s. and increasing supply. important factors to demand from china is down. what is the news that is
6:03 am
important. this is an external threat in u.s. markets. look at the domestic economy. the data have been getting better. we get a report later this week which are biased as the estimate for growth in the second quarter and a number of things right now. interest rate down, oil prices down. they don't hurt the american consumer. >> this got been meeting for the federal reserve this week among other economic force. a window does size the u.s. economy is isolated from all of this and this is an overreaction to put so much importance into chinese stocks and the economy. dagen: do we need to sign for the federal reserve that they are taking note of the action and maybe won't move as soon as some people are thinking? janet yellen will not be at jackson hole. when you have a fellow flight as
6:04 am
they continues to pick up steam, you have business owners and operators become so rattled it can become an economic slowdown in the united states. it can become a recession as people are afraid and unwilling to make commitments and continue hiring. >> a big issue is how do people like anthony respond to the markets. if the selling bill thomas golf, you can hurt household sentiment. if people commented that this is a buying opportunity. maria: maybe. when is the buying opportunity, anthony? everybody continues to say we are in the middle of this. we have not had a pki. >> okay, in six to 12 months this is a time to way he had because what we know is that reverse very quickly. if john's right about the
6:05 am
economic data and wages better than expect it, earnings are better than expected. we haven't put the federal reserve on the table but if the fed raises rates, that's a the bottom for the current market. if they don't raise rates then it just signifies they don't know anything more than the three of us were four of us know. >> everyone is saying are they going to move in september or a day. what they are thinking about is what groundwork to daylight for the outlook for rates over the next one, two, three years. one of the shifts we could see is a downward shift in their own projections of where we are not in september but the end of 2016 and 2017. the fed's own projections out of line with the market. the market saying you can't do this much is even telling us for the next few years. we could see some downward drift
6:06 am
with the fed aligns itself with the market. maria: this is an important conversation because it's not just about the slowdown in china. it's about the federal reserve in september. if in fact the fed moves rate, do they stop a recovery just gaining traction. >> this is the debate they are having right now. what you see -- maria: larry summers was exactly the argument is the argument to say wait a minute, the data is telling us something different than the expectations. >> larry summers is really interesting. he is getting on janet yellen's shoulder. the two leading contenders for the job a couple years ago. summers is acting like he got it. they want to look at the numbers. an important jobs report coming out next week. we have more data on inflation coming and in how the domestic
6:07 am
is holding up. the conversation right now it's even though the domestic economy looks stronger, the dollar is getting stronger. that is a head wind for the economy. the economy can't afford many headwinds. >> if the shanghai didn't do this, what they have raised rates? with a 5% to 8% higher, do you think they have the data to raise rates in september? >> we've been reporting a close call before all this happened. the snake said a harder call. dagen: is that the federal reserve's job to rescue market. is this a bubble, markets fueled. >> it is the job to respond the markets behave in a way that tells them economic outlook. dagen: there hadn't been the rush to buy which a knife type
6:08 am
about. >> we keep talking about how resilient the u.s. economy is. what if we are wrong? often times market no better. market has a certain message. >> let's say we are wrong and now you are janet yellen. do you sit tight? maria: no, that could be perceived as a big negative. >> i am in the camp and maria coming notice i said on your show and i will admit being wrong but rates would rise until 2016. three weeks ago i course corrected based on the data. there are these markets enough because it's a fluid job. enough to not do it question or >> futures markets are pricing in march 2016. he changed or call a little too

6:16 am
breakout commodity show a lot of fear that is reflective of what we see in the global marketplace right now. when it comes to oil, being below $40 is not a good sign. maria: gap, it is not a good sign. i wonder if it triggers another cup tax scheme within the energy sector. then you see how the ramifications are deep and wide for the u.s. economy. >> you will see that quite a bit. we've heard calls from opec members for an emergency opec meeting. when you see this price drop in the past couple those cutbacks will come swiftly and quickly and that will lot of the big oil companies. maria: will check in again throughout the morning. phil flynn is in chicago. commodities that dow futures point to an open. 22 of the 32 dow stocks down.

6:32 am
two trends how do you take advantage of the drop in long term interest rates and possibility that the dollar is going to keep strengthening where does money go as a result of that? >> well, i think money goes, to the u.s., if the dollar is going to continue to strength, obviously, we had been for sometime gots of international equities since valuations in europe and japan cheap on hedge basis we promote visa international equity investments on hedge basis to offset dollar strength as relates to the lower of interest rates, obviously, costs of capital cheap as a consequence you are going to see haten does mand a activity at the end of the day what it means for bond investors that they are going to continue to get squeezed out of income investments assource of cash flow and, therefore, i think we will have to look to dividend paying stocks strategy dividend spaying

6:34 am
weekend, in terms of of the types of calls, that you were getting? >> yeah, dagen, important, because the chirping getting louder interesting closer to turning points where you start to from contrarian standpoint, tune your area to what you might hear relative to the pain they are beginning to feel as a convention of decline in the equity market clearly the noise has o gotten a little bit louder, not quite to the point that panic not quite to the point where we are actually seeing clients repaper statements to say get me out of stocks but at the same time getting more anxiety a little bit of a kind of a punch in stomach relative to what we hear from investors in terms of of how far is this going to go, and should i be 70s contemplating whether or not to do anything, relative to my equity position at this juncture, obviously our advice is stay the course, for the time being, but at the same time, we are looking for signs around the corner as much as anybody, as to whether this could get significantly worse or not which is not our best
6:35 am

6:44 am
when goal is to reduce risk through central banking monetary policies -- the price come back one day, and this is what may happen now. i believe the markets oversold. what you should do with the money is where as most investors were buying the dip, i would consider on any rebound, reducing position, because the slowdown in china began more than two years ago. and it began to accelerate on the downside last year, while the stock market was -- we have hit in chinese economy kind of a brick wall, and this will have a big impact on the world. on multinationals in case

6:47 am
so we life in a very leveraged world zero interest rates since 2009, in 1999-199, 2000 green span could reduce fed funds rate from 6 1/2% to one percent in 2003 but that is no longer possible. >> marc where would rated be out the federal reserve as you presentation of rates if in other marshall where do you think overnight rates would be right now? >> well -- the rule would suggest that effect rates are on 1 1/2, 2%. >> do you think this changes the fed course next month? on the phone: i believe, if that the weakness that is now obvious even to professors -- never been the china never

6:49 am
that is going to be the question not that they laced but in this gets worse then what do they do. >> i told dagen i got lucky with that story written a month or two ago sitting there -- >> no time i got lucky. >> not about what fed raises, but -- >> the fed if we go back into recession, what do they do, you know, they don't have a lot of tools left so they have already expanded balance sheet to 4 1/2 trillion dollars long term interest rates very low. qe programs easternmost getting you very far we talked about negative interest rates, if we go back into recession, they are trying in europe, but boy, talk be uncertainty about about central banks going too far. >> you have to way swis national bank 57 basis points you pay them --. >> pay your bank to take your money. >> propriety. >> i don't think it will happen but your article does a great job for the fed by

shares how do i think value has very much merging trading 1.2 times, to book basically back to the level, people peripheraling in a dire situation already the current level. maria: i know that you are invested largely, in china, do you think its warned the rest of the world soefells off? >> well i think, different parts of the world in different situation, clearly, i think for parts of emerging market people are quite worded about china picture as well as any kind of risk, of further you currency weakness in a meeshthsdz markets in he swepd markets some exposure, but we are looking at markets that have gone up a lot more over the last couple years versus the local equities here, so, i think oekt resisting premium increases uncertainty we're starting to see profit taking perhaps. >> helen. >> i want to ask you about the
7:03 am
economics backdrop the government wants % growth at the same time,the data we are seeing in particular, last week, set off the sell-off suggests manufacturing sector is conattracting how does an economy built for manufacturing where manufacturing sector is conattracting get anything near 7% growth? >> that is a very good question, and i think indeed that is what we'll are worded about despite the headlined -- sticking to 7% i think china is very proud of the fact that consumption side has been growing at high single digital half of the economy at the moment, so -- gone to close to breakeven, but that said as you mentioned, about if the other half of economy is actually, stable, or maybe even potentially declining in some portions, then it is probably harder to get to anywhere close to that chief total growth rate, i think what are china is trying to do now is pull at the levers at disposal unfortunately going to be very difficult to stimulate examine culmination
7:04 am
to move significant way in near term so what you have to do is pull at the lever in terms of infrastructure, fixed asset investment the government spending very important, also potentially in terms of of the property market where policies last few years have been quite tight. >> charlie gasparino here, i know markets are interrelated but why are we seeing this what i think is an insane overaction u.s. equities, yes chinese big trading partner, but we're down this could be the third day, of 300 point declines, is there so something else going on besides china, and -- you know, a possible 25 basis point increase in the fed funds rate sounds like given those two factors seems like a wild overreaction. . on the phone: i think, you know you ignition are probably experts on u.s. oekt market but my guess would be since u.s. equities has massively outperformed most asset classes last 3 to 5 years as
7:05 am
you see the valuations for meeshldz markets in china other asset classes, really collapse over last couple months, maybe a little bit of kind of taking risk off the table he overall that is leading to bait of correction in the u.s. side. maria: are you expecting more into evenings from the chinese government? intervention. >> i think it depends what kind intervention you are talking about after probing in asian markets early july i am hoping they are not going to take major action specific out to the a-share oekt markets do i hope there will be a much bigger more about broad policy response in terms of stabilizing confidence stimulateing critical side of the economy as well restoring confidence policy makers commitment to pushing through the central reforms really what got valuation expansion in the market we have seen second quarter this year, but i think those two things are actually much more important, than any kind of direct intervention, into the onshore
7:06 am
domestic equity market. >> a bit about chinese consumer, what the market down 0%, from its high -- 60% from high that is going to impact consumer in china. >> a great question. >> i think that is something is that people have been quite worded about for a while, but actual impact i think is probably not nearly as big as people would think. if you actually look at what most sensitive in terms of discretionary luxury goods demand there has been examine demolished in 2013 by anticorrection campaign if you look at exposure to oekts less than 10%, of household wealth most of it, is actually probably in the did he positivesists cash as well as property, so 9% or 10%, at most in equities, probably does not make for a significant amount of negative wealth effect particularly given most of the people who enter on leverage later in the game were actually playing in the market, sme narcotic as i mentioned earlier is up
7:07 am
substantially year to date be despite correction up 55%, i think the overall impact in terms of consumption is probability not nearly as bad as it might be in other economies where household wealth drrgs equities is greater. >> you say a lot of the rest is in real estate consumers could not feel accountable about real estate holdings in china. >> well, i think prices have not actually gone down if you think about fact many people real estate property halthsdz granted dhoufrg reform, even if it is coming down a little bit recently, there is still up substantially not seeing a huge you know, wiping out of real household value there. maria: good to have you on the show thanks so much. on the phone: thanks. maria: see you soon helen zhu, take away you think this is an overreaction. >> yeah and i think, what is going on here, is that two bubbles are bursting the chinese stock market the chinese economy was a bubble, we don't know about they don't have an accounting system in
7:08 am
china. >> the commodity double. >> commodities and u.s. stock market why i think, going to raise rates -- >> sell-off on main street as well live to i colleague at "fox & friends" on fox nice channel, steve doucy, and bryan kilmeade is there, let's listen to them right now they are live. >> right now let's bring in maria bartiromo host of "mornings with maria". live right now on fox business, and fox news channel, maria, on friday a wild ride in the united states, it has been a wild ride overnight in asia now looks like wall street is heading straight into the dumper gave in. >> a sharp sell-off the opening of trading, we are having a debate this morning, on weather or not, even though we are going to see sharp decline at the open if that is actually going to be the case at the close it starting really because of worries over china, chinese economy longest time the jewel of the world where growth in the world was
7:09 am
now we see the reality of it is that weaving from an economy that was growing 11% at the peak, all the way down to 6 or 5%, the numbers are debatable but that is the crux of the problem there is intervention by chinese government, communist crunch not to mention a federal reserve meeting next month debate whether this economy in u.s. is strong enough to warrant higher interest rates. >> jon from "the wall street journal" here you are not sure if the fed is able to raise rates. >> in part because of what is going on overseas,and the interesting thing is that the u.s. economy, is actually doing a bit better i mean kind of tortoise in global race for growth yanking out slow steady 2% growth is not exciting for anybody but compared to china, where it is slowing so sharply we are leading the race. >> deductible the debate whether or not this economy is in fact that strong, the
7:10 am
employment numbers pro bonoed a gdp report guys out this week, out on wednesday, and we will see, or thursday that we will see if that shows -- >> the question let's say china doesn't come back say corruption and a communism combine to bring them down what can we do less dependent long run short run into key of a chip to play. >> at this point u.s. has been the strength of the world where you see growth in terms of stability certainly so i think that the uas it has to continue to see you know, sea strengthening economy we will see if federal reserve raising rates takes is a -- crimp out of that puts recovery in jeopardy. >> we have a chip bryan called skwlt policy cutting taxes. >> would be good what you don't have is a president willing to -- inaction because of the divided government, and you know if you get one party running, you get the republicans running going to get tax reform rollback of regulations, you look at larry
7:11 am
summers op-ed i think interesting read between lines. >> financial times read between plienz he is the architect of some nonsense going on talks about too much regulation, regulation holding back the economy. >> financial system, and i tell you that is the problem. >> -- the catalyst could be election, sort of anticipation that we're getting new leadership on fiscal policy. >> other chip that is in play here which is more, maybe the chp that china is playing a weaker currency for them sand stronger currency for us they might come out of this turmoil try to sell even more of cheap stuff to the united states. >> said to us last week trump came on show said if china continues devaluing currency when i am inoffal office i am huting heavy tar i was on chinese goods so their products are not going to -- american goods. >> actually, maria -- donald trump on this program 20 minutes we will ask about that, thank you very much. >> thank you.
7:12 am
>> fun. >> -- fair share that is what he would say. >> great to talk to you thanks very much. >> have a great day you too eye on gratuities take a look where we stand as we expect sharply lower opening dow industrial down 400 points in premarketing down 150 we are going to see a tough opening, crude oil hitting fresh 6 1/2 year lows prices breaking below 45 dollars a barrel this morning moving as low as 3869. live in chicago cme group good morning to you phil. >> good morning, maria one thing you don't normally see dollar tanking in oil tanking at the same time. and that is what you are seeing in that is very disturbing to see. the reason why that is, is because this is not about you know, oversupply right now it is about concerns about global demand that fear is being applied out, throughout the commodity complex we're seeing that same type of risk aversion you look at gold market usually gold canaveral
7:13 am
in times of crisis, not so today. they are concerned about deflation that is moving it away from the gold, and into the safe heaven of the treasurys right now even if you look cross commodity copper, those markets are crashing right now because of the concerns of china demand is going to dry up that may be overstating the case a little bit but that is where the market is moving, and even if you look into the grain complex they are getting hit as well. you know not just weather story it is a global demand story all commodities back to you. maria: absolutely that is why we're seeing a sharp weakness anywheron, ore, copper industrial metals right phil so these things are used no -- >> build a hours make a car, and so is it clearer indication of weak demand. >> absolutely, you are seeing that, of course, china, of course, the main driver of the demand for most commodities, they were building cities will billed five chicagos every
7:14 am
three years, now if that slows down they don't have capital to do that, capital trying to save their banks, that is going to dramatically impact, that demand for commodities, that is where the fear is being played right now. >> thank you for connecting the dots on that flil, jon, connect dots further for us that is the reason you are seeing the iron, ore, copper where it is a direct indication, of the demand coming out of the largest buyer china. >> right. and what we see is weak global demon one thing i think, we all have to remember as it relates to the chinese economy, in u.s. economy, we don't have a lot of direct exposure to china we have exposure through 70s commodity prices, but only 7% of our exports go to china, and we only have 14% of our over all economic growth driven by exports. >> what about imports. >> huge importer to united states we import their deflation could you take out.
7:15 am
>> -- china takes away 2% -- >> that is -- i think the things overblown. >> overblown, i am not saying is that we are in good shape, because we're not, i mean, that doesn't maintain can't be corrected we've had absence of coherent i guess best way to put it fiscal policy 8 years right into a great right after great recession, president obama wanted to raise taxes, increase regulations, i think that is the that is what has to change here, fiscal policy changes this economy will get back in shape, by the way, they have to raise rates. >> i don't think they can -- >> that was bernard mcguirk frustration remember conference no help from congress, or president. the current administration, not doing anything. and so they got to raise rates a credibility issue. >> you are absolutely right. >> we're not getting a change in fiscal policy at least until 2017 going into election no way -- >> markets will eep, that there is a change coming, and -- >> a bubble. >> that is done enough, now time to raise rates a little
7:16 am
bit i actually think market will rally into a rate -- >> i want to put out 10 year below 2% once again markets are telling you, that they are nervous what do you think about if 10 year below 2% once again. >> another signal to the fed fed wants 2% inflation the market is saying you are not going to get 2% inflation for next 10 years, unless negative rates right now then actually, that 2% is actually reflected. >> coming up in the program going to -- be on the show load bloody day on wall street dow industrial in correction territory from high, chairman wilbur ross vechg all he over the world telling us his next move. back in a minute.

. maria: welcome back a global rout this morning, we are looking at global market sell-off dow jones industrial average in correction tether down 10% from the high, futures indicating a sell-off at openly of more than 400 points, as you can see there, right now on phone to weigh in on all this w. l. are you going to company chairman wilbur roth thank you for weighing in on day we see this kind of damage what do you do as a long term investor as you are? >> well, i think we will be -- on day like day is look for the fundamental value that get really smacked -- as all markets whether on this morning, but that is what we will be doing. >> where is the value right now from your standpoint wilbur. >> i think that some names have been, far too hard tech stocks, gotten very badly
7:21 am
smashed. and i think people are perha exaggerating the problems of china. china is not falling apart it is true had been contributing about half recent global growth, so slow down a bit but not the end of the earth, since people are panicking, overraking, especially neither conte context, volume a lot of people on holiday right now. maria: right. >> selling -- exaggerates. >> here is dagen mcdowell. >> you did see seems like fear took ahold in a shocking way, in the last week or two. why is that is it because people have been burned not just from financial crises but go back to technology bubble. >> i think it has become all those things the markets especially chinese market, have had a tremendous run and
7:22 am
tremendous run with -- in the june corridor many times as many brokerage accounts eepd in china has has been true in the whole prior year so you had a lot of unsophisticated people coming in accounts opened by people without high school degrees so just -- panicking in, thinking that the government make sure the market always went up but found out that markets go in two directions. >> right wilbur charlie gasparino here i guess you are at odds with me, you might want to buy apple at these levels, any u.s. stock is -- over fees are of china it is apple. >> 21%, charlie, the 1% from high i believe. >> is that a good bet right now a lot of viewers are thinking that.
7:23 am
on the phone: i don't want to get into individual stocks reasonabli recommendation, apple is -- >> not everybody is wildly excited about new watch, it will be designed -- people did like, so wouldn't get too frightened because of one product is not as exciting as -- >> what is your sense of the commodities complex, here, i mean obviously that is also where the heavy selling has been, you have been a long time investor, things like coal, energy related businesses, is now a opportunity within energy or do you think we are still in the middle. >> i think we will get to the point where energy at least oil probably makes some sense. as you probably know, we sold our coal interests some several years ago, because it
7:24 am
was quite clear the obama administration is determined to put the coal people out of business. >> you were smart to get ahead of that one. >> wilbur a lot of people out there this morning, asking themselves is this at a repeat of 2008. is this time to get out while i still can? >> talk to us about how this moment for you compares to what happened in 2008. what are the parallels how is it different? on the phone: i think it is vastly different. in 2008, you had the this whole prime thing collapsing you had a real meltdown in the financial system. the fact that stocks going down a bit, does not constitute a meltdown of the whole financial system, so the totally different thing, this is simply a change in psychological the 2008 meltdown is a change in reality. you had banks failing, you had
7:25 am
the government having to step in, you had a huge financial crisis. not just a stock market phenomena, i don't think this is comparable. >> would you be a buyer here when do you think, what is going to be the catalyst for you to say okay i am ready to start finding opportunities here wilbur? on the phone: i am getting serious lots of things now, as i think you are aware, from our over the last year or so he we've been a seller of five times as much as we have been a buyer. not so much because we thought the end of the world was coming, but we just felt things are starting to get a bit high. >> you think the fed is going to raise rates, right. >> pardon. >> you think the fed is going to raise rates in september. >> i doubt it will -- in view of what is going on rights now i don't think that they want
7:26 am
to be add to the confusion so i think it is more likely they will wait for things to came down a bit. maria: we thank you so much for joining us we so appreciate it. on the phone: thank you maria good to talk to you -- >> see you soon wilbur, more coverage of the expected moteldown coming up stay with us. can a business have a mind? 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?

visit today. maria: welcome back. continuing to cover breaking news. coverage of the markets on the brink. monday, august 20 or 37:38 on the east coast. correspondent john hilsenrath. dagen mcdowell and wall street host anthony scaramucci and fox business senior correspondent charlie gasparino. what to get on selloff mode after a shed. here's it looks like for the u.s. public and 9400 plus points
7:30 am
off at the opening of trading this morning. a lot of economic data this week will certainly set the tone for markets later in the week like the gdp, consumer confidence tomorrow. wells fargo investment institute strategist paul christopher. good to have you on the program. what are your takeaways about today's current environment? >> well, if you're a long-term investor, someone looking ahead, you have to look back and say as the economy still solid. the answer we think is still yes. traded to you want to look for opportunities to get into the market at the south of beards in the market hasn't finished all enough but frankly speaking his not unusual for market to have parents for their 5% to 10% down. we haven't had one in a while. maria: we have one now. down 10% from the high.
7:31 am
how much more blood is out there? how sizable a decline which you expect? >> that's difficult to say. when it does consolidate, long-term investors have a good buying opportunity. i don't think it's months. and maybe a few weeks. >> dagen mcdowell. if i'm an individual and i call you on the phone, i want to do some reading. don't tell me to do nothing with my money. what portfolio changes could i make, should i make right now? give me some sense of calm and peace in a market that you see futures picking up steam. >> right, you make a good point. there's no reason to put all the chips back into the market now. but there's a reason why investors couldn't take profits in boston began moving them slowly into stocks. we like large-cap stocks.
7:32 am
maria: even though the dollar has been so strong. >> yes, the dollar is going to take a pause, continuous pause as we think the fed will most likely wait until december to make its first move. >> when you look at the economy in 22016, do you see it getting better than the two to 2.5% gdp growth? >> the economy will be about 2% growth, much closer to three. even if the price reading for the second quarter when it comes out this coming friday. >> why? the markets are telling us the economy is not very good or is slowing down. you really think we had a great second quarter? >> i don't think wait a great second quarter. with a better second quarter than last month in the month before and things are getting
7:33 am
better for the third quarter, especially on the consumer side with a pickup in business spending. >> first you don't think they'll raise rates in september. at the same time, talking about the second quarter that wasn't so bad. when i look at the corporate earnings story i think it stinks. we were expecting to see corporate earnings down 4.5%. they came in showing growth of .04%. better than it. there's no no growth in corporate earnings. >> no change in the second half of this year. looking in the 2016, we think that will get better going forward. surprises on the upside to come. >> the counter argument to the bullish case is we have a global economy built on debt, that the chinese far too much money to build those big megacities and even the united states, even
7:34 am
though consumers have delivered and corporate balance sheets are in good shape, government debt as high as we haven't seen since world war ii. the worry is theorized in crisis moments in the markets because investors are finding reckoning with the debt going to be holding back. what do you say to people worried about the debt problem? >> that's a question make it quite frequently. it's not the level of debt although that will be ahead when. it's more whether you can pay it off in the chunks you have to pay off on obligations come due. budget deficit by low, interest rates low, companies have a lot of cash. tax revenues will be adequate to pay off the debt as it comes due. if they had written but not a crisis. paul, i share your view. the data looks like it's getting stronger. wire the market disconnected from the gdp data and what looks
7:35 am
like a positive economic future for the u.s.? >> that's a good question. probably a question of sentiment. maybe not even one single thing, but a week or two to the devaluation. that made people wonder whether this was some canary in the coal mine about whether growth would be sustainable. dallas and misread on the global economy. china had other reasons to devalue its currency to you could've thought it as a trigger for profit-taking and the broader follow-on selling. >> you talk about big cap stocks. it seems to me they are exposing anyone to china. the american economy doesn't export a lot, but a lot of big companies, gm, the hotels, all the manufacturers have invested a lot in the accord me and they stand to lose it to slow down. if you look at earnings reports,
7:36 am
expecting fast growth out of china and flatlining mayor. >> china's retail sales growth still runs 10% to 11% year-over-year growth. foreign direct investment in china still increasing as it did last month. it is not really a slowdown story as he was seated in europe or japan. china slowdown is going from 10% to 8% for a percent to 7%. maria: paul, what is your favorite international market? >> we like the prospects for growth. not strong growth, but from where we are right now in terms of earnings expectations, more big surprises on the earnings side than we do here. good to have you on the program. >> cannot quote george bernard. if you let all the economists end to end, they would not reach the conclusion.
7:37 am
>> he's trying to say with a british accent. it's not working. >> this is like if you are the average investor at home. your head has got to be spinning. no consensus about interest rates and neck she were in the economy. i would say one thing. you don't sell everything right now. dagen: it's too late to sell. >> that's the bottom line. >> is a very nice guy but clearly -- they are all reading this talking points. the >> i love you to death. let me tell you something. site about the economy. look at the data, charlie. the data is way stronger than people suggest. maria may be right about corporate earnings. wages are up.
7:38 am
>> it is like it dead cat bounce. >> let me just say one last thing before break. housing recovery. we have a housing recovery. 60% of small businesses are tied to housing. you will see job growth there. the fed has to be looking at that. maria: everybody is pushing this out to december. i know you were not expecting a big move anyways and some of our guests as well. we still love our same dunkin september. >> it was not a slam dunk. it was 50/50 before this happened last week. we are talking too much about september. the important thing that comes out is the fed expectations for where rates are going to be at the end of 2017 come down. it's more in line with what the market what the market is saying which is the fed has been saying biblical gradually.
7:39 am
>> the basis points on the overnight by election day. dagen: everybody just got a tax cut. long-term interest rates going down. >> is looking for three rate hikes by the election. [inaudible] >> that is perfectly reasonable. dagen: don't worry about the feds. worry about what your tank cause when you fill up the next time. >> we talk about inequality and the wealth gap. old mickey mouse wealthy investors get it in the stock market that the average guy is getting again at the gas pump. conversely, we are in a situation helping the little guy. >> i would like to hear what trump has to say about this. maria: he will be on fox and
7:40 am
friends anymore but. we are looking at a sharp selloff. the selling is continuing on wall street and we are expecting an ugly opening. back in a moment with the futures lows of the moment.

7:47 am
if you give me a lego, i will crack the box and put together. maria: this company has never changed his stripes that is just lego blocks. >> a branded themselves with all the superheroes. dagen: the mass return is on this thing called the café said. the café corner is like a hotel that has almost 2100 paces. the return was 2200. legos aren't going anywhere. i'm the one in stock and lego set. >> the fact we had this conversation speaks to how lousy the rest of the investment is. speak trained to looking at a market selloff. china sold off overnight 8.5% and you also have a selloff in the price of oil. there's the futures rate now down three and one 3%. the nasdaq smashed out nasdaq

maria: a weekday this morning for stock prices or global selloff. features that allow the morning right now with 520-point. the nasdaq down 4.5%, almost 200 points we expect at the opening of trading. we spoke with jim rogers earlier and he said now we pay for the price of multiple cash injections and historically low interest rates. he blames the fed. >> we've been floating on a gigantic ocean is that the,
7:52 am
british and americans staggering amounts of money. the artificially low interest rates and only pay the price and we haven't started paying the price for because markets are naming them down 10% yet. maria: now we move into a series of. are we expect rates to come change and that is what is behind this. >> one of these points about the artificially low level of interest rates. over the world look like as an alternative. the european central bank tried to raise interest rates back in 2010. what a daycare? they got another recession. they got an economy in so much trouble that they had to turn around and push interest rates into negative territory. japanese tried to raise interest rates in 2006, 2007. they've had three recessions since then. interest rates are low for reasons that don't connect.
7:53 am
>> there's two players here. monetary policy, fiscal policy. we had obama and all macs. the fed was the only game in town. >> charlie, there is the third player here. what is the market telling us? but that doesn't control the 10 year yield. maria: it is now up 1.97%. if the fed raises rates, what would happen? they would go down because people would say were going back into a recession. >> there's other reasons why people buy u.s. treasury including a global flight. maria: at some point while the structures rates had a lack of fiscal policy. >> if you look if you look at what happened, the stock market crash of 1929. the fed did not in a sustained break into the business of
7:54 am
raising interest rates until the 1950s. >> we are forgetting one thing happening right now that's never happened before. i'm porting 2.5 billion people into the western capital experience. bottled the india china does south africa southeast asia. that is creating excess labor, access products and a specter of global deflation with the central banking. dagen: it had a bubble in commodities in a way. you have a bubble field are cheap and easy money. cheap and easy access. >> i'm not saying they're going to do it becauss. >> i'm not saying they're going to do it because now my opinion is our economy is a lot stronger than it was in 2008. dagen: the nasdaq and s&p --

8:02 am
stocks that might be holding wellness market and also remember every time there's a negative by gas prices declining, that's a positive for some other industries. if you look at low interest rates, people say that's great to spur industry but bad for people on fixed income. every negative has a positive and our job is to find them. maria: here is charlie gasparino. >> hello, foster. in the late 90s to an 90% into cash during the stockmarket bubble. you obviously got crushed. was that a learning experience for you as this is going on right here? >> it taught me to stick to principles because what we did when the earnings are deteriorating and people are not meeting expectations, we stick to principles and don't invest in companies that now is the
8:03 am
situation. stocks on that because people were going to american stocks even though earnings were deteriorating. i learned because we were heralded by "the wall street journal" for our success in one of the best performers two years later as he don't look at the short term so much. you look at principles of buying companies well managed, this season's growing well and doing ratings. if you look at the gyrations of the last 20 years it didn't affect the real starring. >> what makes you pull the trigger right then. he pulled the trigger pretty radically. you look good, but you went through to rough years. what made you pull the trigger right then? >> i think we only went through one bad quarter. we were up 3%. we didn't lose money. that is the key point. we did not perform the internet
8:04 am
stocks which went crazy. what caused me to pull the trigger is just to have a disciplined investment theory by companies growing rapidly well managed and selling p.e. ratios. if you don't find opportunities, stay in cash. i missed 76% cash. companies were deteriorating earnings and people didn't see it coming. it didn't matter because i people sell stocks somewhat irrationally. maria: we've been talking about monetary policy versus fiscal policy. you know you are backer of rick santorum. why do you think he is the one to bring onto the stage fiscal policy and get the economy strengthening and sustained growth? >> is very much a champion as you may remember a blue-collar conservatives that 74% the americans have not originated

8:06 am
the taliban and al qaeda. i must've put the dots together that we have a huge opportunity to confront. we are in world war iii. this generation's pearl harbor and we are in denial. maria: dataset the selloff is about this morning in terms of growth in the economy. do you think the federal reserve will raise rates next month? >> our philosophy was to ignore those kinds of interest rate challenges and the overall economy. if i call the company and they say 12% as well, we would say thank you and go on to another because we want a company 12% despite the economy. maria: you are saying it doesn't raise rates, what are you saying? >> or see if you can find companies that made a lot of money and you will find them.
8:07 am
i'm not the one to talk to about interest rate because we tried to make that irrelevant. >> foster, let me ask a question about global growth. why hasn't the world grown faster coming out at the last financial crisis? >> i'm not the guy to ask that but i'm very confident you asked me such a high-powered question. i'm just a little stockbroker that had a good theory. >> you say you look for companies that grow 12%. are you finding companies growing 12% and tell us what some of them are. >> i was using it as a figure of speech. if a company with cells that grow at any rate, 5%, 10%. the point is we tried to find companies were dependent on interest rates.
8:08 am
>> are you fighting this company is a potential to grow fast? are they there? >> i'm 75 years old. i left the market 12 years ago and i've got a little money in a mattress but i'm not following stocks on a day-to-day basis. that is for you to give senator smart hedge fund guys to answer. maria: we will be watching the market. foster, we love your insight. thanks for stopping by. >> thank you for inviting me. it's an honor to be asked. maria: fosters friess joining us at the lows of the morning. a rough opening. for 6.5 year lows on oil. we'll take you to the florida cb group. looking at the dow jones industrial average expected to open 700 points. we are done better than 4%. nasdaq 200 points. looking at a global route. the u.s. market under severe pressure right now.

selloff a day before. oil taking a hit again falling to a new 6.5 year low. phil flynn standing by right now with the indication how much lawyer can oil go in what is the connection string oil and stock. >> right now oil is coming into the major support area around $38 a barrel. that area tried to hold it in the last financial crisis when it fell they really made the fed move towards quantitative easing. that's an important area. we see demand destruction right before our very eyes. the selloff in global stock markets of freezer and also slow down demand. obviously, china is ground zero when it comes to the economic slowdown. china was ground zero for global commodity growth. put those two together and we have the worst possible outcome and now we see a lot of pressure

in prices but it is not just oil. it is across the commodity spectrum. i saw a headline from across the soybeans had a six-year low. farmers look to export grains in china and they are concerned the numbers will fall as well. industrial metals as well across the board. itu. >> this is across the board. what would you attribute the sharp selloff in the commodities complex? is that all china or something else? >> the fear of contagion. if you go back to the beginning of the crisis is targeted in europe when greece decided to vote out of the euro zone. they flow down from china that we start to rebound. exports took a tumble and that's when the chinese government moved the value in the current the and now it is a concern that what happens in china will impact your up and get back to the united states. >> phil flynn with the latest.

charlie gasparino. >> when we talked about contagion in oa, we had a correction in housing. the banks ballad sheets were contingent. they owned a lot of mortgage-backed securities that reflected housing prices. you don't have that now. we have a contagion of a different sort. this is not 2008. the banking system fundamentally in a much stronger state. you can make a case that this is really good. it corrects a man may raise rates. there's no long-term capital out there either. >> that's was so interesting about the conversation this morning as we say the u.s. economy is in pretty good shape. you typecast after guessing we are not in bad shape and yet every 15 minutes dow futures are
8:16 am
going. >> that's absolutely right. that's why i'm thinking it's a lot weaker than what you are saying. i don't think it is so strong. >> the fundamental underpinnings is not in horrible shape. >> the fear and panic and weakness could create an economy that weekend, could create an economy in recession. you see this kind of fear-based selling. we been through a lot in no way can a lot to the year 2000 we are conditioned to behave -- >> we close up in the air slightly. maria: what you were talking about is the u.s. relative to the rest of the world. but when you look at the u.s. economy straight out, we just haven't moved. sell tens of millions of people unemployed. >> the stock market rallied under those conditions.

8:30 am
stock exchange on a day like this. they put out a note about the circuit breakers. they do not step in until a 7% selloff. what are you expecting? >> before we get to the intercassies of the market mechanisms. the viewers have got to step away from this irrational depression that seems to be going around the globe. we have to remember, the u.s. economy and anthony spoke about this, as have your other panelists, the u.s. economy is strong, we've got low energy costs and relatively low interest rates, a strong housing market. time productivity. banks in a strong financial position and consumer stronger than they've been in the last 15 years, so, you know, i think you have to take a little bit of a step back and separate traders from investors.
8:31 am
>> right, dick? >> traders, charlie, you nailed it a little white ago. traders are there to trade, okay? the trend is their friend. if it's going down, they're going down with it, okay? they're selling into it. step away from that. remember, up until the late spending of this year, this has been the most hated bull market since world war ii. and people were complaining about how many people, because of the march '09 meltdown, you know. the '08, '09 meltdown, how many people missed a 7 plus thousand point appreciation in the dow. so, i think this creates a very normal correction to an upward secular bull market and those investors out there who are investing for retirement or for college funding for their 8-year-olds or buying an em who down the road, have a
8:32 am
tremendous opportunity and look what were we thinking, what was the market thinking? >> to the market mechanisms, maria, yes, there are, you know, call them shock absorbers that the markets have to cushion the volatility, both on the down side and the up side, but look, as china is learning the lesson, you don't manage the market artificially. you know, what a lot of people forget is that shanghai doubled in 12 months, it's given that back or giving a lot of that back, you've got to let the market find its on level. >> it's charlie gasparino, your good friend. >> hey, charles. >> and irritant for your entire career. who do you like in the presidential election? your buddy langone put on line for you to support christie or do something brave like support donald trump?
8:33 am
>> well, ken has not been out there raising money, but as you well know, chris has been a favorite of mine for a long time. but look, with 17 candidates in the race, anything can happen. and while donald has, i think, a very impressive lead at this point, you know, i'll call it-- he's polling between 25 and 30%, that means you still have somewhere between 70 and 75% for someone else. >> you had a close personal relationship with hillary clinton over the years. do you still have that? did that ever translate into you supporting her? >> well, you know, when she was in the senate she was a fabulous representative of the people of new york and i have to say this, all right. she took the time to understand the financial markets. she took the time to appreciate how important the new york
8:34 am
stock exchange was. not just to the state of new york, but to the united states being the capital of capital of the world. she was a real student and supporter of ours and you know, i think the world of her from that perspective. look, there are lots of things i wouldn't agree with with respect to what she's currently talking about, but you know, i'm at heart an independent and always have been, charlie, i'm going to look at whoever the two nominees are and frankly, you know, at this point i think it's very hard to predict that. anthony was saying, you know, a few minutes ago that, you know, this time the life cycle, herman cain looked like a shoo-in. you can't predict what's going to happen given the volatility. >> do you expect a worsening of the market as interest rates go higher? we've been talking with jon hilsenrath. >> maria, when you say interest
8:35 am
rates going higher. interest rates are zero. you're not talking about interest rates looking like they did in '80 and '81 when the government borrowed money at 15 3/4% long. you're talking maybe 1%, you know, rate. that doesn't hurt economic growth. maria: all right. >> and that doesn't in any way depress the entrepreneurial spirit we have in this country. we're in a great position. you know, one of the things-- i'm a great follower of the writings writings brian wellski bmo, over the last five years it's china, china, china, and i think the next five years it's going to be u.s. and the u.s. economy leading, look, 2% can't remain. we've got to get people into office and people into the both houses of congress that want to do something. maria: which is why this election is so important.
8:36 am
here is jon hilsenrath. >> i want to talk about retirees and this market. and my dad, retirees and they wake up hearing that the economy is fine and their stock portfolios are going to open down 600 points. what's a retiree supposed to do when they've pushed into stocks and stocks are tanking and fixed incomes are no place to sit. >> well, hopefully they haven't been pushed into stocks that are on the extreme edge of the risk curve, jon. there is a very strong case that's been made over the last few years that you want an equity portfolio that looks more like a fixed income portfolio. you know, i think that fixed income, by the way, your he a going to lose more money in fixed income than you've ever lost in the stock market over
8:37 am
the next five years. >> in treasuries, dick? it's dagen mcdowell. >> dagen, whatever the instrument, the longer the duration, given the propensity that rates are going to rise, not to flatten or go down, you're going to lose a lot of money. dagen: let me finish. dick, that's what the people have been saying since the financial crisis of '08, that bonds are in a bubble, bonds are in a bubble and if you bought anytime there was an up tick in yield, you are making money in treasuries and individual investors have been selling wholesale domestic equity funds for years and right now, they look smart. >> dagen, just remember one thing, whether it's the fixed income market or the equity market, you don't lose money until are you make a sale, okay? and i think that's a very important discipline, periods like this one and--
8:38 am
>> one more political question mayor, are you running as mayor against bill deblasio and-- >> charlie, do i take from your question that you are still angling to become press secretary? >> i want-- i want commissioner and restaurant association, and work for the new york city sanitation department. i love the idea charles gasparino, deputy mayor for economic development. maria: what are you saying, dick, you don't want to enter the mayoral fray? >> i think there's a portfolio of great potential candidates for mayor of the city of new york. maria: dick, great to talk to you, we proosh appreciate you with the market. a mechanical breakdown at a bp plant near chicago putting a strain on gasoline prices and

oil prices another part of the story taking a huge hit today. now below $39 a barrel to fresh six and a half year lows. jeff flo being-- flock right now is down from bp refinery in whiting, indiana. jeff, good morning to you. >> largely shut down, maria. indeed. that would typically be good news at the refineries not in one. the bp refinery behind me, the largest in the midwest and consequently with a huge impact on prices shut down. bp won't say exactly what the problem is, but it has to do with their biggest disstilllation unit which apparently has leaky pipes and some people say it could be bigger than that, months before this is back on-line. take a look what that has meant in terms of oil versus prices. typically when oil comes down, so does gasoline. the retail gas chart versus the price of oil, they're not in tandem at all. if you take at a look at the midwest and similar problem out

the likelihood of them raising in september is iffy unless the markets rally back and i think it's an overblown selling reaction so my guess is they're going to raise rates. >> do you think they'll raise in september? >> keep in mind where larry summers mind is at, he penned the term secular-- >> and that's his narrative. >> and he believes that we're in a sort of long-term secular, very low growth economy that not even expansionary fiscal policy can address. he's talking his book, because, remember, he was on president obama's-- >> i sort of see stagnation. >> well, yeah, because you have-- of course, there's stagnation because they didn't do anything for eight years, but he's saying even if they did stuff, this is at the basis of his theory and really to flesh this out, he said because of the global trends, you know, like china and all of this cheap labor and blah, blah, blah,
8:51 am
we're going to have stagnant growth in the u.s. maria: i think we are having stagnant growth is it my point, not just talking about the fed not doing anything. i'm on that camp, it's just okay. do you think that there's no way to address it? don: don:. maria: no, what you said earlier, fiscal policy. >> he would agree with a lot of what you said about the last part no way to address it. what he wants to do, he wants to see more government spending which he would call investment. maria: infrastructure. >> infrastructure and education, but you're making the important point here right now, which is that the economy is growing very slowly and it's already growing slowly in the u.s. and now we have the headwinds coming from overseas and now is not the time for tightening and raising the cost of credit. >> and he would never raise rates. just remember that. >> and what's interesting here is that there was a race between larry summers and janet yellen to become fed chair and
8:52 am
he wanted a job. he was seeing the hawk and he was seeing the dove and now we have larry summers the hawk saying, no, no, no, don't raise interest rates and janet yellen has been talking about pulling the trigger. >> what is he seeing? >> he's seeing potentially the next head of the federal reserve after the term is up. the issue is like when you're in a market down turn like this and when the fed is in such a precarious position on the precipice of the beginning to raise interest rates, who do you want communicating with the rest of the world and investing in public. mr., blow hard, and points his finger at people or somebody like your grand-- janet yellen, i get the optics, mr. hair trigger temper point your finger. >> just to look forward, the fed has the and ul retreat. maria: jackson hole. >> the person who keep our high
8:53 am
on isn't janet yellen or larry summers, it's a guy, stan fisher speaking on saturday. the next clue about the fed comes from stan fisher. >> he said we're raising rates. dagen: is it a good thing that yellen isn't there this week? >> we haven't seen much of yellen lately. if the fed is doing anything, she needs to be making a case for it, one of the arguments why-- >> oh, interesting element there that you bring up. wall street braces for a brutal opening with futures sinking down 650 points right here on the fox business network. more coverage. these two oil rigs look the same.
8:54 am
can you tell what makes them so different? did you hear that sound? of course you didn't. you're not using ge software like the rig on the right. it's listening and learning how to prevent equipment failures, predict maintenance needs, and avoid problems before they happen. you don't even need a cerebral cortex to understand which is better. now, two things that are exactly the same have never been more different. ge software. get connected. get insights. get optimized.

8:57 am
three market major in correction territory as soon as the opening bell rings. maria: jon. >> every guest we've had on is talking about the underlying fundamentals in the u.s. aren't so bad and every hour the market ticked lower and pre-opening of the market ticked lower and lower. there's a fundamental disconnect between what the market sees and what the experts say they're seeing in the economy. maria: which is why i think we have to study i what we're going to get the rest of the week. consumer confidence and. >> the market will be 3 to 8% higher than we are now by the end of the year. maria: 3 to 8%? >> where it opens, if it opens 600 down. maria: in four months? >> a lot like what happened last year, the fundamentals are intact and you can bring me back and dunk me here if-- >> and right there. don't forget the hair, you can dunk me up to my eyeballs.
8:58 am
dagen: no, dunking is getting the hair wet. >> i would say the market, and you'll agree with that. >> the markets are fine here. >> the markets are the heroin addict the fed is the heroin dealer, when you come off heroin, you go into withdrawals. >> we've had that. >> and it's a good thing long-term. >> got 2000 points. maria: so you're happy about a correction? >> we haven't had a correction in how long. >> the idea of the coming off the heroin is, everything that's happening is making the fed less inclined to go ahead. >> we're going on-- >> that means the addiction continues. >> the thing we haven't talked about enough, i think, today is the possibility that we're headed not towards a crash, but towards another bubble. if interest rates are going to stay very low, i think we see inflated asset prices in commercial real estate and-- >> and this is what you're seeing. >> the market is only down a couple of points on the year and it's very likely that it
8:59 am
will end higher in december. dagen: this is what you're seeing the collapse of a commodity bubble. you watch the currencies of these emerging nations, brazil, russia, that's what is going on here. >> long-term. maria: and that's why the chinese just devalued their currency that sparked all of this. the markets are telling us one story though, guys, got to sell off 600 points in equities and have the 10-year yield below 2%. 1.9%. >> what am i missing? if i think the fundamentals are-- the underlying fundamentals of the economy is okay? listen, sometimes the market is irrational and the market telling me something. >> the markets were going crazy the last couple of years and the average u.s. investor was buying gold, a lot of them. >> buying bonds and selling u.s. stocks. what's shocking here is the way that our psychology as individual investors change since 2008, how did that play out in this. maria: that's the bottom line,
9:00 am
dagen mcdowell, jon hilsenrath. anthony scaramucci. we have coverage all day long on fox business. "varney & company" begins now, stuart, have a good show. over to you. stuart: thanks, maria. when there's a big market selloff, mondays are often the darkest of days, and today is no exception. good morning, everyone, it's a tough day. if you have money in the stock market, watch out below. the dow may be down 670-odd points when trading starts. it dropped over a thousand last week. this ranks up there with 1987 and 2009. china is the trigger, another drop there and fear that beijing may have lost control of the market and any economy that relies on oil revenues is in deep, deep trouble.
