>> what we look not right now from our security team that the fbi is considering whether to release video and pictures of what they believe could possibly believe one or two suspects. there is video of at least one of the devices being placed that is an internal process as to whether or not release that to the public. also from fox news officials are examining batteries many sold in the united states. the type they found as part of the device however it seems the bomber to the extra step not to purchase the regular battery but taking another to insert into the bomb. also significant social media footprint the fbi is examining and an apology on house says this investigation will take time >> they are proceeding apace
this is not the end cis episode sometimes you have to take time to properly put the chain together to identify the perpetrators everybody is committed to see that gets done. >> obama has landed in boston he will also meet with first responders and those who were injured. president obama also the target of the ricin mailing. remember the fbi needed a day or two to confirm if the letters sent word ricin they certainly absolutely filled with ricin. they never made it to capitol hill or the white house and intercepted but there is an arrest kevin curtis has been arrested with the mailing of the ricin letters to u.s. officials including president obama and the senate majority leader

all of us. do any of the events have any impact on how you look at the economy right now? are are you focused on other factors? >> at this point* i don't see them has any impact it is the actions going forward but it will not have an economic impact worries about people not wanting to go to a large sporting event and fortunately we have had these kinds of episodes before an economic impact has been negligent with so one of the event. but at this point* we did see an increase with the weekly consumer confidence numbers we get out from one survey.
quite honestly it is said difficult and challenging period of time. i again, i step back but we are selling back into a realization it is a tough month for the economy. connell: to that point* to get away with the leading economic indicators came in looking at the dow and the generations the leading indicators declined does that tell you anything what was the message of that? >> of course, it doesn't tell us anything we don't know but it is amazing that shift in sentiment people have in the marketplace about the economy with the last four or eight weeks with the turn of the year and through march we had so much optimism that this was
it breaking to the upside and we would see the pattern but lo and behold starting with that report we had consistently soft economic data. connell: is it just a repeat then? i know these projections are pointless but how do you see the rest of the year? a relatively optimistic to say we may be in trouble? >> you have to save the extremes with periods of real optimism was like the turn of the year you have to step back to say the economy faces challenges we can sustain three or 4% growth but on the of their hand we have a down period now, or early summer last year and then have to step back there are things happening. housing is a big part in the

explosion in texas in the town of west we have seen that the weather is the bigger issue. dagen: so now we go to our meteorologist has the latest from fox weather center. we did have strong thunderstorms that rolled through the city of west texas and just to give you a frame of reference if you don't know where it is it is 20 miles north of like a texas 80 miles south of dallas. the strong storms rolled through this morning and with a significant drop in temperature ready for the thunderstorm hit it was 74 degrees right afterwards it was about 53. 21 degrees temperature drop within the span of one hour to bring the infrared image from the satellite out in
space that was able to detect the heat signature from the city yesterday 8:00 p.m. central time in the state of texas. that massive explosion was so massive and devastating and powerful it was actually detected in space by a satellite. this is incredible and also triggered an earth league signals picked up in amarillo there is a report that it was the 2.5 earthquake but it shook a the ground hard enough sending a wave out to amarillo over 400 miles away so that travel over 400 miles and was picked up and this did trigger an earthquake. here is the line moving through earlier today. still dealing with patches of heavy rain and of wind has been an issue up to 30 miles per hour and a

pay toe chips. back to you. connell: exactly, thank you. dagen: home made terror thrust back into the spotlight. one of the devices used in the attack was a pressure cooker bomb. the late radical cleric who was responsible for the al-qaeda supported magazine "inspire," and the publication's goal is to attract home grown terrorists. connell: a lot of people are talking about that magazine, and while it seems to have died with alawki, youtube is a form for the extremist groups m one example, producers viewed a bomb making tutorial that was on youtube posted by an islamic extremist group. easy to find. it's been removed, but it was there. joining us to talk about it is former nypd analysis
directorment thank you, sam, for coming in. appreciate it. what role do you think the companies play in this? youtube owned by google and other companies and social media getting attention this week because it is easy for quote-on-quote for a lone wolf to operate, isn't it? >> it is. companies have taken a responsible position about this making it a key priority to censor material ensuring there's nothing out there. they are up against vast quantities of data, the likes google can't get out ahead. dagen: does the information continue to spread? is there a proliferation of this type of information and these guides, if you will? >> absolutely. face it, in the world we live in, it's impossible to eradicate the december mages of this information. we can, you know, put a dike in the dam, but the fact is the information is going to get out there whether it's from yemen or ideas the united states. connell: i asked about the role
of companies, but what about law enforcement? say, for example, in the video referenced, just one example, but producers find a how-to video yesterday; right? it's gone today. what is law enforcement doing? monitoring videos and help to be out there, law enforcement get them clues about what people watch and are doing? >> may well be. first of all, we have a generalceps of what's out there to be consumed. more specifically, i expect intelligence agencies have the capacity to know who is hitting which sites and when, and that could be valuable in terms of trying to solve the mystery of who done it. dagen: in terms of these more crude devices, as an example of this, what we've seen from the pressure cooker bomb in boston, is it easier than, though, to track down the possibly -- potential suspects? do you have more evidence because these are not as sophisticated devices? >> well, yes and no.
the less sophisticated the device, the more likely it could have been brought off by hymn. if there's any indication by himself, it's harder for law enforcement to track. where law enforcement excels and intelligence services excel is when individuals come together because that means they are talking, talking by phone, talking by chat, talking by e-mail. if that's the case, then intelligence agencies get a read on it. connell: do they do less of that, guys being suspected terrorists or groups nope to be terror groups, do they do less of that chatting or texting or any kind of communication than a few years back? are they getting smarter? how do they communicate now? >> they are getting smarter. it's an ironclad rule of counterterrorism. the bad guys follow us it rating against the defenses. we can't just have a posture we had five years ago, but reiterate our game as they do against ours. dagen: it might be simplistic,
but i was surprised when you see what is left of the bomb, the battery, even, like, pieces of the deeper left from this. it dawned on me that you do not have these devices that vaporize when they go off. investigators have a great deal of evidence to work with. >> there's evidence, and a lot of the evidence comes from the individuals who have been killed or maimed in the event as well. there's a lot to go on in the way of physical evidence, and right know, i guess it's the case that intelligence and lawn mower guys are zooming in on video phones, connecting the physical with the people out there. connell: if it's so easy to look up and it's really -- if you really want to do it, easy to carry out as we talked about and we talked about the roles and companies can't do much to stay ahead of it, takes ad view down, another pops up. why don't you think more things happened like they did in boston 1234 >> i don't want to suggest social security -- it's easy. it's easier than with a nuclear
device, but it's not simple. it requires some amount of coordination, and i guess what we're going to find out over the next couple days is just how that took place, but the answer to your million dollar question is, i don't know. no one knows why it has not happened thus far and hope and pray this is not the change. dagen: diligence by your average citizen, people in the street, is so crate call in preventing attacks, is it not? you saw that before; right? >> absolutely. in this case, in boston, it came too late. they kind of activation of the community, but absolutely in a times square attempt a couple years ago, it was heads up baseball by guys on the street that prevented the attack. this is exactly how israeli counterterrorism operated for generations now. increasingly, we'll see that here as well. connell: a street vendor said, there's something going on in that van, and that's the same thing, see something, say something. >> absolutely.

they are watching 1550 as i sneak a peek, we're at 1544. at 1550, we have seen buyers step in to this market. we're not so much seeing that today. we're looking for possibly a close above there today if we were to see bullish signs for the market, close below 1550 is not good. why? when stocks peaked in 2007 and in the year 2000, this was a key level watched. it's a key level watched right now, and, by the way, closed at 1552 yesterday. again, we're watching that 1550 level, possibly a close there today. another floor would be at 1500, 1480, but 1550 is a key level with the red flags in the stock market. back to you. dagen: thank you for that. connell: so sandra's talking about the idea when people step in and buy, and as we munged, people think about that with apple. look at that stock chart. down more than 40% as a matter of fact from its september highs.

december 201 # 1, and, yet, you have a price target of dlrks 600 -- 600 bucks, why the faith? >> yeah, it's been painful to keep without question, especially as you reference since september of last year. i mean, look, it's obvious that people don't really seem to very much care about evaluation or balance sheets or cash allocation. really, as you rengsed, people wonder what's next, where the outside growth is going to come from, and if apple kind of amazingly has a bright future at this point. we think a lot of the questions are almost kind of silly when you consider the fact that, you know, the iphone and ipad continue to do quite well. looking for double digit revenue growth the next couple years at least, and, you know, hopefully apple provides us with updates that get people more excited about the stock at this point. dennis: we have the ipad mini, reports out yesterday that maybe that little 359 item is not selling, and, of course, when
you sell something for $350 against the kindle fire for only 200, you have to wonder why apple priced it that high. you have no apple tv which we hoped for, but is it a bigger problem? product cycles, i have an iphone 4, i'm not going to upgrade to the 5 even though a button is broken. already, there's rumors of the 6. >> yeah, that's been a problem for apple over the last, say, year or so. they did -- we thought, a good job of coordinating product launches in september and october ahead of the holiday shopping season, and if you look at revenue gains, iphone 28%, ipad 21% for the december quarter. that is pretty substantial growth, we think. it's just that sense then, apple basically went radio silent as we've seen. new blackberry introduced a new samsung galaxy announcement coming to markets near you so they really kind of have been
hurt not only by the lack of new products, but products from competitors as well. dennis: i always worrieded that a certain amount, 30% of apple's great stock was just pure love. separate that from growth and pe ratios was love, and now it's like they are out of love. what can apple do to bring back the love? >> yeah, honestly, it's to the next extreme that the love turned to hate. i think people at this point are abhorrent when they think about investing in apple at this point. what do they need to do? i think they need to do three things, first thing is they need to make sure that people understand it's a growth story that continues for the next couple of quarters and years at least. number two, they have to get people excited about the notion of innovation and risk taking. you know, google glasses got a lot of attention, but is that really going to move the needle for the company? no, but it gives people a sense that they are doing things to
kind of move forward when it comes to new products, and then, third, that cash distribution strategy that people have been waiting on, what are you going to do with the $137 billion in cash? people hope for dividends and buy backs. dennis: wow. i didn't hear apple watch in all of that. the iwatch, as a savior for the company. not a lot of hope in the watch? >> no, you know, in talking with apple, i agree with the sensement that a lot of people have made a lot of incorrect assumptions and predictions when it comes to new products the company is working on and deploying. i'll sit back and wait for the company to kind of surprise us with what they are doing. i think a watch definitely is more possible than other things that we've heard about. i also think the notion of a streaming radio service of some sort, that makes a lot of sense, but we're not incorporating those into our forecast at this point. dennis: okay. all right. given the price target, you watch with a knot in your stomach. thank you. >> thank you, knot in stomach
and all. dennis: okay. cheryl: looking at a market that's again seeing a sea of red. the dow right now down by 63 points. s&p and nasdaq under pressure. 14555 there, and our next guest says that at this point, this week's action, shows a significant top is building in these marketses. one of our favorite bears with me. you are seeing something different now? you say it's easy for the 10% to 12% gabeed this year to evaporate in two weeks, that would be now? >> absolutely. this is a bouncing ball, 200 up, a hundred down, down 50 so far today, who knows, you can lose 3% a couple days in a row, and there's the gains for the year. cheryl: volatility, the vix, the fear gauge, that's been gaining by double digit percentage points just this week, and that's something else you watch as well. >> rocketing. we own the sx which is not 1100%
with vix, but etf to play volatility. we own that trending up in the last couple days. cheryl: the s&p and nasdaq, you look at stock movements, the top 100 stocks get 80% of the volume. the retail, institutional money is chasing the same 100 stocks issue and that's dangerous, you say? >> yes, well, everybody's looking for yields, cheryl. no place to go, worried about fixed income, rates can go up. what do you do for fixed income? you don't want long duration because of the move up. you can lose 10% and no way of replacing that until rates come back. cheryl: you have a protection play for the viewers, you have two, one goes to bond yields, and proshares short 20-year treasury. this is the woman that shorted the market three years ago for her clients and made money. you say this particular tbs is good if bond yields rise?
>> yes, absolutely. play it a couple ways. hedge your portfolio, play it if you want to trade it. you can trade it. rates are going to go up, it's a matter of when. it's bottomed out, trending up, it's not going to go straight up, but opposite of the price of the 20-year treasury. cheryl: the rangers equity bear, etf, a peer protection play. you move into this as well? >> we have offset risk. we try to miss the downside. you don't have to capture the whole sup provide. if you lose 0%, you need 25% to get even. if you lose 10, you need 12 to get even. if you lose 10, miss the upside, you're ahead of the person who has to get 25 to be even. cheryl: diversification, but not traditionally. like, watch yourself on the bottom. if there's a falling knife, and you tell the clients do not try to catch the falling knife that's gold right now. you are absolutely saying stay
away from it. >> love it long term, but short term, the stock's broken, resistance is gone, bounces here, but i don't know that you want to jump in whole heartedly here, take a small position. cheryl: you have gold names you like, this is interesting because you're saying stay away from the contracts overall, but you've got the ishares gold trust you like, and you also got aiu and dgsj. you have secondary plays. >> yes, for awhile. we're okay on that. we can average into it in here, possibly for a bounce, and then we'll work around that position, but i think long term, the miners are a good place to go. there's inflation in the world, and the hgde is a great play because they short evaluation bases, short individual companies. they had great hits here. cheryl: your strategies are fascinating, and you protected your clients. thank you very much. >> great to be here. cheryl: bearish, but i like you. >> thanks. dennis: president obama speaking
now in an interfaith church service in boston for the victims. the church a mile from the site of the bombings. rich edson is live at the white house with the latest, rich? >> good afternoon, dennis. the president has been speaking for a couple minutes now, been in boston for a couple hours, and eel visit with first responders as well as the victims of the bombing earlier this week. president obama in boston where the investigation continues. the fbi, according to fox's security team, considering, perhaps, releasing video showing one, possibly two suspects and perhaps a video of someone placing a bomb at one of the sites or a bag at one of the sites. there's an internal deliberation ongoing now as to whether the fbiments to make the images public. there's app investigation examining a battery used, perhaps in the bomb. it's a common battery sold in the united states, but sources telling fox news the battery was, tracted from another device and possibly placed in the bomb.
the investigation there continues. meanwhile down here, the department of homeland security secretary updated the investigation's progress. >> we have been collecting video from a variety of sources, as you might imagine, at the finish line of the boston marathon. there's lots and lots of video. there is some video that has raised the question of those that the fbi would like to speak with. i wouldn't characterize them as suspects under the sec any call term, but we need the public's help in locating individuals. >> in washington, update on letters mailed to president obama and republican senator roger wicker that contained ricin. the letters increased ricin, and now the final analysis, according to sources to fox, absolutely unequivocally contained ricin. authorities made an arrest last night. neither letter reached their
destination in the white house or u.s. senate. back to you. dennis: thank you. nevermind tax pain, but what gout tax gain? thank you to the tax man. cheryl: tax pain is easy to think of the irs, but coming up, how 24 agency employees scammed the government and taxpayers out of big bucks, and they did it under the boss' nose. that would be uncle sam. looking at the oil contracts before break. we are, again, blow $90 a barrel, 87.52 on oil. take a look at that. ♪ , and save your money. joe doesn't know it yet, but he'll work his way up from busser to waiter to chef bere opening a restaurant specializing in fish and game from the great northwest. he'll start investing early,
he'll finde good people to help guide him, and he'll set money aside from his first day of work to his last, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. it's just common sense. trust your instincts to make the call. to treat my low testosterone, my doctor and i went with axiron, the only underarm low t treatment. axiron can restore t levels to normal in about 2 weeks in most men. axiron is not for use in women or anyone younger than 18 or men with prostate or breast cancer. women, especially those who are or who may become pregnant and children should avoid contact where axiron is applied as unexpected signs of puberty in children or changes in body hair or increased acne in women may occur. report these symptoms to your doctor. tell your doctor about all medical conditions and medications. serious side effects could include increased risk of prostate cancer; worsening prostate symptoms; decreased sperm count; ankle, feet or body swelling; enlarged or painful breasts; problems breathing while sleeping; and blood clots in the legs.
watching on the dow jones industrial average, and a few more movers, quarter after the hour, and stocks every 15 minutes with nicole on the floor of the new york stock exchange. strong wireless profits at verizon, a good quarter. >> that's right. that helped verizon wireless along the family overall. verizon, the wireless is part of the strong bises, and they also saw improved growth in verizon fios and their internet television service helping to push verizon, the one name here with an up arrow, three and a quarter percent, hitting highs not seen since 2001, 2000, 2001, those are the levels where last time we saw verizon. on the other hand, nokia is under significant pressure, down 11.5%. they saw sales plummet, they had revenue plunge, apple, below $400. then i pulled up other names in the tech realm hitting 50 5* 2 -- 52-week lows like mec.
technology is under pressure. you know, we're seeing that mimicked by major averages. the nasdaq, the tech heavy nasdaq down a percent while the dow jones industrials are down nearly a half of is 1%. back to you. cheryl: thank you very much. the s&p breaking through technical levels, a lot of floors dropped out today. dennis: s&p up 16% since november. i'm not worried. either is charles payne here to tell you how to make money this hour following up on auto nation and the new world cyberonics. >> the key for s&p is 1540 on a closing basis for me. the medical device implanted inside you and it stimulates the brain, and they use it for epilepsy and to treat depression. they had great numbers. last quarter, beat the street by 24%. last i talked to you, up three and a half bucks, it's down
three bucks. get into it. any day, the center more fed cad and medicare reimbursement will say whether they reimburse this treatment for depression. it could be a big deal. the guidance is huge, but if they get it, the stock will take off. reported earnings, we know people buy cars. the stock has not really moved a lot though. i mentioned a month ago, it's a buy. i can't believe how cheap the stock is. pe is 13. some insider selling. that's not problematic. few buy recommendations on the stock. a lot of times i like that, where does wall street go? at some appointment, golly, the stock is a buy. looking forward to finally breaking out through 48 and off to the races when that happens. cheryl: what's a driver for auto nation to break out? we are seeing a shift to the
newer car. >> well, you know, we are seeing somewhat of a shift, but i think they've benefited from both to be honest with you, and it's one of the value plays that they keep coming out with numbers like this, at some point, the street says, okay, it's a buy. this is what happens. the street stays resis tent, and everyone jumps on. dennis: the big fear is obamacare raises taxes on medical gear, not other stuff, but the new treatment was never covered by medicare, just upside for them. >> they do, glad you brought it up, they mentioned the medical device tax, still able, most recently, to still be able to move the operating income gyps up from the previous guidance, but you're absolutely right, it doesn't help any of these companies. dennis: thank you. cheryl: on the road, we have an inside look at this year's summer travel hot spots, and who stands to make the biggest bucks? dennis: and how two dozen irs
>> 233 # minutes past the hour, this is your fox news minute. in boston, the interfaith memorial service for the victims of monday's bomb attack continues. president obama just finishing his speaking there telling the city of boston you will run again. the first lady's in attendance as well as former massachusetts governor g.o.p. nominee, mitt romney. the pentagon says a suspicious substance found in a u.s. naval mail room. all personnel has been evacuated from the building as a precaution. in west, texas, waco police says a law enforcement officer feared dead has been found alive with serious injuries after last night's massive plant explosion. police say three or four other volunteer firefighters remain missing, between five and 15 people believed dead, and more than 160 people were injured in
this plays. those are the headlines, back to cheryl and dennis. cheryl: thank you very much. such a rough story. well, our tax pain series comets, and this takes the cake for it. two dozen irs workers charged with stealing government benefits, those workers who are to protect the system. liz, talk about the story. i mean, this really takes the cake of stealing from the government. >> more than a quarter million dollars in jobless benefits, food stamps, housing vouchers, irs workers stealing, accused of stealing from the government. we have the u.s. attorney general saying that they are brazen about it. here's the quote, braise brazen ningly stealing from the u.s. taxpayers. saying irs free loaders game the system, doubly frustrating because they are the inside guys
who work the system and milk the government. we should be expecting better from an irs agent. here's the deal. the u.s. trash ricin department and ig's office launched what's called being called operation double dip to stop irs from doing this. cheryl: they were irs employees, furloughed, started collecting unemployment benefits, food stamps, you know, any kind of welfare benefits, and then they go back to work, but they still keep clerking benefits, the double dipping. >> that's right. this is a key problem with the cuts and furlough of government workers is that these workers are basically saying to the government, hey, i deserve these jobless benefits, i'm furloughed, i don't have a job. i deserve food stamps and housing vouchers, but when they are rehiredded, back on the job, they are accused of lying to the government to continue to get the benefits, and, in fact -- cheryl: where did it happen? >> tennessee, 13 workers accused
of lying saying they were out of a job when they were not. cheryl: they'll be prosecuted? >> that's right. each of the ones who lied face five years of prison maximum each for lying to the government. cheryl: good, good, try not to, like, work for the irs and steal our money. the irs is painful enough without taking the money. >> exactly. you may see more cases pop up across the country. cheryl: i hope not, but probably. liz, good stuff. >> sure. dennis: violence in venezuela continues following the presidential election. will instability jack up the price of oil? katherine from bulltick capital markets joins melissa and lori in the 1 p.m. hour of "markets now" to discuss. cheryl: all right, mgm spending a million bucks to bring a new york vibe to vegas. that's up in the "west coast minute." dennis: amazon jumping into the tv game. first, a look at today's s&p's

sit below $400 a share. nicole: so many people love apple, love the technology, love all their products and yet this is a stock over $700 and right now at $3.94, a couple things to know. we start with what is that over this period of time. this is the yearly, all you see is green and red. 2003 it was green, 49%, 201%, 123%. in 2007 you got 133%. all these years over the last since 2003 were green arrows and even last year and gain of 31%. apple shareholders had a nice run. just with jason wiseburg, this is a great buy at this level. and a back up the truck and buy a lot of that. the interesting part is they
have things coming out, new iphones, the watch, really out of favor with wall street. cheryl: jason back of the truck and loaded up the stock. thank you. dennis: call this a tax game. at least for car dealers. car sales hitting their highest monthly total since august of 2007. the extra cash from tax refunds could be a reason for the bomb and joining me is kelly, senior analyst, thank you for joining us. how is it tax deadline is april 15th usually but car sales might have been helped by o cfo refunds in march? >> we typically see the average fund is $3,000 and with the average price of a new vehicle at $30,000 that accounts for a nice chunk of a down payment. most folks that expect to refund tends to file early and don't wait for the deadline. they know they have many new coming for an head to the
dealership and we expect those refunds a little earlier and take advantage of low-interest finance rates. dennis: for laggers like me who filed a last-minute you could see a bump in car sales by may. >> exactly right. on average the irs expects you expect to get your refund within 21 days or so and typically what we see is in terms of new vehicles seals seasonal peaks are in march when they get the refund and in may when those who wait for the deadline get their refund. we saw a boost in march and we will see again in may. dennis: we are held by pent-up demand because we stop buying cars and we are sixteen million sell rate annually in a boom and in a bus we went below 12 which is the chart on that. i am wondering did you see this tax refund this happened even during the slump or did not work then and now it is working well?
>> the bottom of the market in 2009 told ten million vehicles. in that period we saw a boost in the month of march and again in the month of may. that is something you can set your watch to, you will see of bit of a boost. calfs dennis: is this a sale of new cars versus use? new cars easy to get and i can get my tax refund as a down payment. >> exactly right. we see more of a boost in car sales with low-interest finance rates and longer terms available in the fourth quarter, the average term was 65 months or so, and to buy a car and those with the average $3,000 on a tax refund. dennis: carmakers' stocks down today. dennis: cheryl: how much is a car going to cost you to keep the car running.
$12,000 a year according to aaa's driving cost study, close to $7,000 a year, as you began cost 12,000. because driving has gone up 2% as a result of changes in maintenance, fuel and insurance prices. do not include car payments. and drive and suv, a lot more per year, how drivers think on that. dennis: caffeine is the biggest thing in the study. cheryl: insurance rates are going. 30 years in new york, cost 2 years and was a disaster. let's talk amazon. in my medium and how you could be the big winner in that game. cheryl: 80% of americans planning a summer vacation. it is good for the economy. joining me with which hotels and cruise lines benefit the most from that spending but as we go to break we take a look at the

and interesting dynamic going on in the hotel business in that they are not only offering aggressive room only rates but also doing a lot of value add. bundling things in like breakfast, three course dinners, additional value adds to create an entire user experience. cheryl: we saw this graphic, and in las vegas. and in las vegas the hotel rates were down substantially. and $79, i thought the accuracy rates in vegas were higher. this tells me something different. >> las vegas has been hit exceptionally hard. the especially the influx they have seen over the past few
years. there are other destinations like mattel that's from up that kept travelers over on that site of the ocean. and travelers being pulled other than las vegas to get the casino fix. the rise of indian casinos pull from the local market. cheryl: lots of money on your vegas business, that is stuff. >> the prediction is vegas coming up and slow the inventory. and the room only -- cheryl: you have any mobile apps, the mobile apps gets you
deals when they get there and that is the beauty about iphones and everything else. >> exactly. as soon as you land you pull up your apps and show you all the restaurants and entertainment available. and landing. cheryl: thank you very much. dennis: copper traded at an 18 month low and gold bounced back after hitting a low earlier this week. was good to the trading pits of the cme and phil flynn. >> they are scratching back here, both higher on the day, something i haven't seen for a few days but if you look at what is going on in the metals right now we have a good option in spain easing some concerns and the weak data out of the u.s. driving down the dollar a little
bit, but make no mistake, this is an uneasy rally. this market is far from turning around at this point, there's a lot of nervousness, global central bankers talking about concerns that prices are falling too fast and we could be getting into a situation where ideas about stimulus going forward and scaled back. the big news natural gas, highest level since 2001, natural gas the new safe-haven based on the inventory report being a little bit. coming in at 31 versus 34. it entered a new high, natural gas a safe place to be. back to you. dennis: thank you very much, phil flynn. cheryl: chicago to the stock exchange, a quarter till the first talks right now and jason weinberg standing by, nicole was just telling me you were saying to her back of the truck, and apple, because it is below $400 so that is a good one.
what else the you watching? >> the financial sector, pushing us to the highs by the end of the year, we need to get out of the hole, temporary hole, a huge run, healthy pull back, markets reacted surprisingly well with thoughts earlier in the week. and they get to higher highs and they don't participate and is going to languish for a while. cheryl: morgan stanley is leading financial lower right now and it is all about earnings and the investment banking so we shall see so definitely going to use the truck apple comment. thank you. dennis: in today's media minute amazon versus netflix. 14 new tv pilots for online viewing, follow up as though the only b.c. on amazon prime and pay $79 a year.

sandra smith has today's trade from the pits of the cme. sandra: technical levels can get wonky but it is important, technical levels especially when talking to the broader stock market. the s&p 500 put together a start that shows 50 day moving average. when you fall above or below a 50 day moving average on any given day it can indicate a change in friends in a market. we traded on an intraday basis below the 50 day moving average on the s&p 500. this is enough to mention because it can indicate possibly that we are going to fall further from here and as jason weisberg said this is a healthy direction. others are looking at this as a red flag that stocks could sell off further. the last time the s&p closed below its moving average we are above the rate right now. last time that happens it was october of 2012 and after that
