4:02 am
bieping out the massive rally from yesterday after the federal reserve ruled out rate hikes bigger than half a percentage point at least for now today, the dow had its worst day instant since 2020, plunged by more than a thousand points after dropping by nearly 1 thoiz 400 at one point the session. this dcomes a day after the dow surged 900 points but those gains had all been erased by noon s&p dropped more than 150 points, breaking a three-day win streak but the biggest loser -- the nasdaq -- plunged more than 600 closing out its worst day in almost two years as tech stocks got clobbered. dominic chu now, tom, what happened and why >> so, what happened was a lot of oh volatility caused by a plethora of different things you mention all the geopolitical risks in the world you mention the problems the economy is facing. runaway inflation. employment that may be still
4:03 am
good but teetering a little on edge but the central focal point for many traders and investors is going to be what is happening with interest rates, overall if you take a look at yields, interest traits rates on ten hef year treasury note right now 3.03%. the reason why it doesn't seem that intense but if you look at the way the chart stacks up, over here is where we are at this is the high et level for interest rates we have seen going all the way back to 2018 and this sharp move higher last couple months really precipitated that sharp move lower. inflation is one of the big, big, big at least enemies of the bond market overall. when people fear inflation, they sell off bonds because bonds pay a fixed ramt now, the interesting part about this is it also changes the call cue laws for how you value many stocks out there, especially, grogt-oriented ones like technology
4:04 am
take look at this. nasdaq composite and by the way, anyway from the record-highs that we have seen we have now drawn down nearly a quarter of its value lost because of fears rising ratings will change, shep, the calculus for how you value some of those big-technology and growth-oriented stocks. >> i understand the dsht concern there are, dom, but why did these same fears hit tech so hard, harder than any other sector looks like? >> that is a great question. for investors invest in technology stocks and they are willing to pay a premium for them because they are willing to wait for some of the profit and growth proten shl and revenue potential to materialize over years. when interest rates are zero, there is little that you can do with the money, besides put no interest-yielding treasury securities so why not put it in growth stocks ask why no pay a little more for that growth down the line the problem with rising rates is if you have interest rates higher, it changes an investor's
4:05 am
calculus they now have to say, hey, shep, if i can get risk-free money from the government at 3%, do i really want to invest in some of these tech stocks and by the way, shep, look at these stocks like amazon, apple, and microsoft if there are profits to be add since pandemic lows, they can still lock in profits right now. >> dom, these wild swings from yesterday to today is dizzying is that other near future? >> it could be but right now, trach a look at this this is something the traders look at. the cbo voluntarily index it tells you the relative amount of unease in the marketplace. back during the pandemic, we got above 60 right now, we are about 31.20. so we are a far cry from the depths of the pandemic back in march of 2020 but keep this in perspective. over the longer-term, the average value of this volatility is closer to 20. so any time you spike significantly, it may show more
4:06 am
pain ahead or we could trend back toward that line 20 at some point so again this is very much a picture about investors and traiders wanting to avoid risk right now, and revalue how all those profits they have had can be treated going forward. >> before we move on, dom, is there a port in this storm, a safe place for snoin. >> so treasuries of course because it is full faith and credit of the u.s. government, but on the stock-market side, this is typically the time, shep, where you find people going toward noneconomicly companies and sectors companies like utill is and talking about consumer staples companies like prosec procter & gamble if you can make toilet paper, processed food, laundry detergent. some tend to hold up better to volatility look at procter & gamble, walmart. two consumer staples, one energy company. they are down, yes, but not down nearly as much as 4 to 8% that companies like apple, tesla, were down in trading today. >> dom, thanks and programming
4:07 am

4:11 am
buried military complex built to survive even a nuclear attack. there is no way the russians are equipped, trained, or even motivated enough to go underground and get those fighters -- hundreds of ukrainian fighters so they had the advantage even when the horrible things we are seeing. they can make the russians pay by thousands to get them out. >> we are told this could be for months or even much longer ho how should ukrainians prepare for battles over future cities >> block the roads, blow the bridges. it turn every bin dough into a sniper possibly and make it little rally a sniet nightmare and so scary, they won't even go into it. >> when it finished in mariupol, the fear has been the russian troops there would redeploy to other areas. handling that is going to be a very difficult task? >> shep, that he is already happened so they had like 20 btg there is, now, they only have two. which again goes gs to the
