and join this conversation, so please reach out to me on twitter trish reggen as well as my facebook page, all right here we go one hour ill the close of trading liz claman is over all over it. >> watching big rally as has warren buffett funnelly had enough? ceo jordan has fell abruptly stepping down as he loses two year battle to come to a agreement with a fox business union. following both sides since involving buffett ownership company that celebrity and sports stars love to use. what is next for buffett's baby. just make america less safe or is he right on track? the national security agency suspending the controversial phone records surveillance program but did our government just trade or security for our freedom? just so that we can speak on the stone? we're going to dive deeply into this issue and five year ago some called this man crazy
betting on what many consider the bad news bears of basketball. now peter and his business apartmenter in jay cons has the last laugh in decades. on plans to win it all. it is the last hour of trade, the folder on the charts so let's start the count down. here we go with breaking news witnesses major market turn arpd that started 12:17 p.m. eastern time but why indecisivenesses dow crossed unchanged line 36 times before breaking outs to upside. rights to the floor show. the group right off the bat joe, i need to know from you what happened to 12:17 and saw the
shift. >> going on in the global economy. everybody this week has been focuses on europe and greece and lack of information we're getting there is adding good fuel to this fire that we're seeing here. yes there's been a lot of volatility on markets up 150 down 150. but in a week like this, where we've got a large economic calendar especially ending off with unemployment number at the end of the week investors waiting for something to give them a reason to get into this market. two cases that are here if they get that information they're going to come in and no information that is pretty good news. so we're seeing that right now. we're seeing those close to the market but not the too far ahead of ourselves market is 2100, 25 trading but this week should be an interesting week with a lot of catalysts here. >> a lot of cat list not much right now for crude oil. the reason we bring up crude is because it affects a lot of s&p 500 large cap stop and it is
charging hade today. >> listen i was impressed by the move today down for a while. and market with the stock market came back nicely at the end of the day i'm waiting to show you truth that will come out later in the week. >> what do we need to see? >> we need gasoline. gas is leader now and finally reflect memorial day weekend and that gives us overall a tone for the driving season. a little early to bank on entire season, of course. but i have a feeling that is beginning to at least set the tone for next couple of weeks. >> john we have 20 seconds here when we have thin volume as we do today swings are a little bit wider but on top of that, we're lookings at a market that jumps ahead on a as you said no news is good news at the moment. >> right beginning of the month we spoke a month ago selling may go away. that didn't work. new month now waiting for new
money to come in not until next week. >> john an our phone senator rand paul doing his best or worst to get the companies that run these firms, the telecom but jeopardize your privacy. paul is blocking patriot act from extended in hopes of ending and business and surprise citizens but general michael joined neil cavuto on the show "cavuto: coast to coast" and he said nothing senator paul does will derail from the customer. >> the companies will gather it anyway. they did is it before this program started. they're going to do it after this program ends if it ends some time in the future because they need these records for their own business purposes. >> what is not just blame government here. nation first director of national intelligence, and five time ambassador john joins us now. welcome ambassador thank you so much for being here.
>> let's leave the argument over if government or businesses are diagnostic anything wrong. big question is right off the bat is our nation less safe without the patriot act that lacked overnight? >> i think we are, if it is just a few days who can -- you know who knows. but if it is suspended for a prolonged period of time, i think that would not be good for our national security. >> are we naked, unprotected did the terrorist watch c-span overnights or fox business and say okay now is our chance -- >> no. no, not completely. we're not completely naked by any means, and i know that some form of this law is likely to pass. important point is nobody's human rites or freedoms have been violated by this program and past years. i mean, that is sort of a myth. this is a metadata informs if you wish that appears on the outside of an envelope, and a
that is not private confidential information where there are court cases that have supported that. so in my view what we're doing, though, is putting at risk what has been a very useful tool in the past for intelligence purposes, and i think we'll continue to be in the future. >> is it fair to demonize big business you know senator paul has said verizon, at&t, amazon they're part of well he makes it sound a little -- but i understand where he's coming from. ambassador we don't want to give up our privacy and our freedoms and let terrorists win, so to speak. but we also don't want to let the terrorists have freedom to reign. >> i mean, i think it is unfair. and i think again the important point to make is -- on the senate floor in the colloquy on saturday, some were saying well this program is never intercepted aplot when it was carried out or when the
danger was eminent. but that is -- that's maybe just part of the story. it has been extremely useful in various investigations it is a tremendous analytic intelligence tool, and i don't think by any means we should give it up and i certainly wouldn't demonize phone companies. i think they're going to basically do whatever government asked them to do. >> you would not demonize phone companies. usa freedom act will end sort of bulk collection but it does allow agency to search a bunch of i would imagine all of the telephone number, senate voted for it. do you vote for it and think it is an acceptable opportunity here? >> wing we are to vote for what is at hand in the hand is worth two in fact bush but i wouldn't modify it any more than it has been modified. >> great to have you ambassador as ambassador to honduras to mexico, iraq a appreciate you being here. >> thank you. much more on the nsa on fox

competitive and agreement at the end. : my dad used to say and he was a doctor two people in your life you don't want to short are your surgery and pilot so you want happy pilots don't you? >> question of to make sure that they're within the competitive range. >> fox business have been leading coverage of this story and we did speak to the pilots union just last week. here on counts down and today union gave us this statement. shared aircraft pilot who is represent the 2,700 use the leadership transition announced earlier this morning as an opportunity for the company to restore the trust of all employees unionize it had in nonunion alike. so here's who is in charge. a guy named adam johnson and bill noe will be the new coo both have been at the company both recently but wowed back in the past couple days. yitd also reach out to warren buffett and brook shire hathaway. warren buffett unavailable but
my sources are telling me that he and he said this too to fox business he never wanted to be viewed as antiunion this battle dragging on for two entire years not a lot of communication from the company. net jet to the pilots. pilots wanted to communicate, but it just dragged on for too long. we'll see how quickly they get a deal on that. fox report ited in serious talko buy wealth management union has the deal been sealed. charlie gasparino has exclusively. >> not sealed with sources close to the seal is that amid a bunch of snags you know, problems with getting the deal done, it is still -- still no deal between stifle and barclays may happen later this week. trying to get it done but lots of snags what could snags be signing up brokerage teams we hear has become more difficult to at first. a lot of people see barclays old
lee command wealth management thought barclays would be people there returning to but they have some problems signing guys up getting them to stay at the prm. some people are balking out. >> pocket was trading teams and then broker -- >> when you -- a lot of viewers they have a few bucks they want to invest. what do they go to a broker that broker is part of a team and stays at a certain firm when they leave that firm, you know, they go for an upfront bonus and they want to stay. they try to get can be keep them retaining bonus that is what is beginning on right now. those brokeers may leave may not leave in the end i think it will get this. that is my opinion. >> dollar secure on how much they pay? >> we don't know until they can sign up brokerage teams and then figure it out. that is a pretty good issue to
sign them up 250 brokers something like $50 billion and sign all of those up, that will be one number. and i don't know what that number is. but only sign u up half of those that will be a far different number that is what ron ceo is saying, stefle dropped the nicholas point out that ron who is a frequent guest of fox buzz is one of the more dynamic guys on wall street built into a fairly significant brokerage firm through acquisition he wants to do barclays. buts there's a bunch of snags that is what i heard of the wortd used a lot of bams up in the air. moving parts here. these moving parts are making it difficult to close the deal. so it is not a done deal yet. it probably will be. you can never say -- it is definitely going to be one. bauds these moving involve people and people walk out the door. if too many rest assured that
ron is not going to buy it. >> feel energized today and brantd brand new day lineup on fox business. feel great? >> see me and gary today. >> former lehman cnbcer talking about how we actually break news while the other guys you know what do they do there across -- that was funny my tweet i heard they weren't happy about this at cnbc. last time i did with tv ugly guy named joe sitting entwine us. at fox business the power to process purr and gary got a bunch of -- >> he replied. >> is that necessary children? >> it is true. i love joe he's a good guy. friend of mine. but it is true. they obsess about the stupid thing we have been all in front of this story last month, and

on trigger when the federal reserve finally tightens interest rates we don't know when that is going to be millions of traders and investors ready to make their own move. what will that move be? we can only guess with all of the unsernght how does world large fest trading operation prepare for that joining me right now in a position business exclusive is terry duffy president of the cme group great to see you terry, and right off the bat we asked because over the weekend we've heard a lot of fed heads making comments and they were coming out to say we're not there yet. we don't have confirmation of a better economy that is what we need. you know terry that the minute it is time, there will be lots of trades. what are you doing to prepare for that volume wave and tsunami of trade? >> so liz, well first of all thanks for having me. but what is really important to note -- important to note here is that our interest rate business in 2014 was up 20% in a zero
interest rate environment so we still saw you know incredible volumes into our complex. so if and when the fed does move and we see some additional trades coming in, the cme we've built system over years to handle enormous volumes, we did one day last year 39.6 million contracts in a single day. that is more than we used to do in years around here, liz so we built the system. we have the system safeguards in place we have the wrist management tools, of course, the lick liquidity provider to make sure when it does or does not november. >> you need to give your tech guys a raise. 39 million but terry let's be honest. when the trade eventually comes to pass, is it many futures shorting s&p. what do you people think they'll be doing with treasury huge treasury business. >> yeah treasury business is up
roughly 20% and and options are might have that inverted but up significantly, and people will continue to do that. liz, as you know it is critically important what we do here is we do manage this. so the wrist transfer is what we do. whether markets go up or down need to be there for different sides of the market that is what we need to do is provide that liquidity. >> what is pricing in near a june rate, september rate, a december rate when you look at the numbers what are you seeing? >> so if you look at the fed funds future contract, liz historically over last several years keeps pricing at a rate, you know, for three, six months down the road that has not come to pass. everybody is on wrong side of that trade. some on the right side of that trade but right now later part of this year is where that trade looks to be, you know, pricing in rate increase maybe sepght, october time period. >> sepght or october at least for now but that changes. but -- >> but the market liz, as i said
you know it has been pricing that way for last couple of years and have been wrong we have to wait and see. : you have to wait and see how well the stock has been doing up 32% compare that to s&p up 9%. but it is a nice, nice split there to see how well you've been doing. i have to ask because political landscape is so interesting right now. you're a registered republican but supported hillary clinton in the past. will you continue to do so for this presidential election? >> liz, liz, liz -- oh, liz you know i think there's a lot of candidates that there are potentially running for president in 2016. what is really important is you know we support one that understands the benefits of this country derives around the world with the investment that cools in to here to create jobs that is important to me with a deep understanding when you look at our government it is stilt best place to be in the world. when you travel around and come
home job thank god i'm here. so a good stable -- good, stable government is where other countries other people invest and that creates jobs we need a president that continues to understand that and follow along with that practice and has been going on for so many years. whoever that maybe. >> xeangt. exactly i agree. i would be remiss if i didn't ask because former speaker of the house had to resign because he's facing an indictment on all kienldz of hush money charges. have you spoken to him? what is your stand on is that >> you know, liz i'll be really frank with you. i did speak to denny on thursday he kaled me and told me that he was going to have a problem and have to resign from our board. he did not tell me what the problem was so i read it in the indictment luke everybody else but he did call and had the resignation on that day. that is the last i've spoken to speaker. >> terry i appreciate you coming in. thank you so much.

differential, it's a great buy. >> i see the rail cars carrying your product to market. a lot of people say it's not a free market. the government mandates that we blend in ethanol. >> well, it hasn't been a free market for 100 years because the oil market had a monopoly on the fuel business. ethanol is 10% of the fuel supply and should be more. given that it's cleaner burning and cheaper. >> a lot of people would rather pay the american farmer than some folks half a world away, liz. i can tell you, you can see this plant out here will be the largest in the world here in the us. >> for every action there's an equal and opposite reaction. you have the corn situation. look, you have good intentions of people trying to find an alternative. >> love the corn-colored dress, by the way. liz: worked perfectly, yeah. i did it for you and the gang and mark .
