tv   Countdown to the Closing Bell With Liz Claman  FOX Business  November 10, 2016 3:00pm-4:01pm EST

3:00 pm
january 20 is the day so the transition process begins. there are a lot of positions that need to be deal -- filled and a lot that needs to be done. we have the dow up to an and 67 points and right at the second donald trump is on capitol hill meeting with senate majority leader mitch mcconnell. he has been making the rounds all throughout the halls of congress. with a lunch at the speaker of the house. after talking about how they can hit the ground running. the two discussing a host of issues in a very cordial manner.
3:01 pm
every step he makearound the nation's capital. in the final hour of trade. and as the resumes role in who will he hire. ernie fletcher has been there the day after election day. which job will go first and fast. former director sending up a warning flare. on wall street no sign of that right now. a record closed today. as you see it's dropping about 22 points. they help to support the candidacy. were looking at a lot of breaking news. let's start the countdown.
3:02 pm
>> we need to show you what is a fascinating timeline that played out just as at meeting happened a few years ago. -- four hours ago. here it is. we made this for you as you can see. it was at exactly 12:38 p.m. at the end fbn and other networks were given the short clip to air. before we saw that you can see that the dow was up about a hundred 34 points. as it he began to play the dow started to spike and by the end when president obama said we must all support the new president and donald trump capped off by calling the president a good man the markets took off. the gains about one and half percent. 266 points right now. it's also on track to end the day in record territory.
3:03 pm
the s&p is very close. for the dow is 18,000. while above it. but folks, it is the nasdaq that happens to be missing the party. the low of the session was a loss of more than 100 points. you can blame this on a tech stocks. some of it is a fact that the tech stocks are rattled. take a look at the big names. in the first half of the year they saw record highs over and over. all of them tumbling right now. netflix found five and a third%. peter barnes on capitol hill with the stop right now. with the next step in the trump transition. with wall street's reactions. but first they could actually
3:04 pm
be making an unlikely partnership to help trump achieve parts of his economic agenda. at this this according to breaking reports. they have both backed issues like massive investment. it has previously been a donor this should not be a surprise that these two could possibly get along. stock 730. it is now on its way to a four straight gain of a streak. what they already received from members of congress. his can have to get a lot of calls already. it certainly getting a lot of calls they feel with that republicans now in charge of
3:05 pm
the white house in the house and the senate the president-elect and congress could move pretty quickly on some major measures and pieces of legislations. they have some good prospects for passing. first is tax relief and tax reform. providing a tax cut of about a third for middle-class families. including cutting taxes on overseas profits of u.s. companies. to 10% to bring back that item could help to fund the infrastructure investment plan in the big plan is supported by many democrats as well as
3:06 pm
republicans. they might also get some help from some democrats on the third item. they have it to build a lot of changes. they have done it before. he also proposed an immigration security plan. that includes building the wall. we will talk about all that more. these two had never met before. not face-to-face but one-on-one. they put the disc to differences aside.
3:07 pm
let's go to blake burman at the white house. we are watching a market that is responding very positively to that development. go ahead and then dig a little bit deeper for us. there are three different things i would like two-point out. in the west wing. no one else in the room. no campaign aides just the current leader of the united states. this meeting lasted for 90 minutes. he thought it was only going to be about ten or 15 minutes long. these two had never met before. and thirdly the president saying they discussed for the most part three different things. domestic issues internationally.
3:08 pm
the transition. making sure that there is a smooth transition from now until the next 70 days. here he was speaking earlier this afternoon. >> my number one priority in the coming months is to try to facilitate a transition that ensures our president-elect is successful. this was a meeting that was the last for ten or 15 men -- minutes. i great respect. it lasted for almost an hour and a half. >> they also hosted the next first lady as well at the white house and i believe just wrapping up potentially as i'm watching reporters to speak over my shoulder the vice
3:09 pm
president elect mike pence is here at the white house as well with a meeting with vice president biden. nonetheless it's happening here at the white house this afternoon. liz: blake, thank you very much. just about 52 minutes before the closing bell rings we are watching like a hawk for any new records that could break today on wall street. the dow is right there already. the s&p is more of a squeaker here. a little bit of a nailbiter level to watch is 2190. is this the beginning of an extension of the bull market we had been in or is a rally a big had fake. i cannot say that enough.
3:10 pm
but at the moment they are seeming a few feet higher. since the election if you look back since we set the all-time highs back in august we clearly have been in a consolidating pattern and we had broken out of that to the upside. the catalyst was the election. if you look at what is ahead of the doubt for sure there is really nothing that i can see to stop it from hitting 20,000 particularly when you consider that we are now in the seasonally strongest that we have during the year for equities. liz: i just want to let people know that this is a live picture of donald trump and his wife just exiting a meeting that he have with mitch mcconnell. let stand by to see if we can hear what he said.
3:11 pm
[indiscernible] liz: donald trump is speaking in his third or fourth appearance before the cameras with not really answering a lot of questions but he did just say they are very much focused on creating jobs so keith, i was marking the -- watching the markets. they were now it just about the same for the moment. >> when you consider we are in a very strong. in the market and what we've done to break out. over the last two days you're absolutely right. it's going to continue on. certainly until we get to the fed meeting. we're already priced in. liz: luke is an oil trader.
3:12 pm
it is down. because people wake up still see oversupply. what else does it play as we are trading at $44.59 cents in the aftermarket. there is some really important step in oil right now. the reason for that was that for was the belt 50. we been right around $45 i sigh came right back down. i don't like the way the oil is reacting right now. i know the dollar is a little bit stronger if it's can gonna be economic expansion i don't see that. what donald trump says about what he's gonna do about isis' can be really important. the only thing that they can
3:13 pm
agree on is that they don't want isis around. if he does something that shakes the market you will see an oil spike. and third, i definitely think no matter what happens to oil prices that spread is a difference between how much it costs and to distill or redefine products. i think those are really important points to imagine. >> before the selection you said go long stock. how many ways can i say that. do you take some profits at this point because we are at epic highs at the moment? >> what about today. nothing wrong with it. look for the pullback in the market and step back in. these are the johnny-come-lately.
3:14 pm
jimmy diamond. i can go on with the names. and i will keep it going. you have the buying power. don't just stick in. understand that it pulls back. this is where that cycles kick in. use them on the brakes and try to come in at that point. don't be scared of the s&p and dow. everybody is balancing portfolios because trump is in and that means coal and railroads. i can go on and on. >> we don't want anyone to be caught flat footed. good to see all of you. keith, as always. the closing bell ringing in 45 minutes. look at pfizer. as a leader on the dow right behind goldman sachs and jp morgan as it evaluates the idea of the 14 billion-dollar

3:21 pm
i'm glad you got it right on foxbusiness. i had two points of the night. i was a little bit early calling it. the national nightmare starts wednesday morning it is not trump. he got the voters of america to fire the washington wall street ruling elites in the establishment. the problem is that there is nothing to replace it. he doesn't have a program or image geordie. washington is going to immediately i believe fall into acrimony paralysis confrontation for a reason that no one is mentioning to date with all of the excitement about stimulus. the reason is the debt ceiling is going to expire early in march it's like a giant stink bomb that the outgoing president and being her left on the doorstep last march.
3:22 pm
to get them to vote on it 20 trillion-dollar debt ceiling will be difficult. it will dominate the first hundred days. they will not do anything. liz: he has a plan that most republicans like. and individual tax cuts for the individual out there. does that pay for itself. this is the point that we learned in the 1980s. this is white why the reagan deficits explode. i would get rid of the corporate tax not just cut it. yet the ups -- offset it with huge spending cuts and he's basically said social security not touching medicare. it would be a fiscal nightmare if we even attempted half of
3:23 pm
what we are talking about. let's get that solutions though. i didn't even get the fancy heart attack. you are out with ten great deals for the donald in this book. let's start with a the number one deal. that they should get done. i think he can't get it unless we radically rethink our taxes. we need to eliminate entirely the payroll tax. that is what is killing jobs in this country. we lay on top of it 15% and on the margin jobs drift apart -- abroad. they are taking on pates checks that are shrinking. replace them with a consumption tax we need to do something when i can solve
3:24 pm
this problem with an income tax cut. i do want to get to a chapter deep in the book. for our audience that has a portfolio. they lock -- like stocks. the coming crash. they have multiple time highs. why did you say that was a crash that was coming. it is just the leading edge of the stock market. it is hideously overvalued. what we have today going on is the suckers rally like never before. there's can be no a fiscal stimulus for the reasons i mentioned. they are trading at 25 times s&p earnings. if you get there. it as the year 2000. and once they realize that it
3:25 pm
is out of dry powder they at least understand that it is a menace. note handoff of the baton to the fiscal policy or infrastructure were to be out of business. i have the one that has a draft on every page. thank you so much. they trump the nation on the brink of ruin. i still have the junkie draft. much more ahead. the microsoft cloud helps us stay connected.

you mentioned rudy giuliani earlier. rudy giuliani has been floated for a lot of positions. here is where i think trump wants him in as ag. there is no doubt. he wants to be -- liz: not as homeland secretary which a lot of other networks are reporting. >> he wants to be secretary of state. he wants to be maybe defense secretary. but donald really wants him as ag. another leading ag candidate is trey gowdy, congressman head of benghazi committee that investigated benghazi raid. huge critic of hillary clinton. be interesting if they go for trey, trey gowdy, notion that they're going to pardon hillary clinton or stop investigations into hillary clinton, you would seem counter if trey dowd he did i in there he thought she was guilty on email scandal. that is where we are now. chief of staff, two names very interesting. campaign manager steve bannon. i hear he in the poll position, the lead position. liz: a little controversial.
3:42 pm
