burman will break down how much the baltimore riots are costing the city of baltimore. nasdaq adviser -- break down all the important market data coming out this week. and also, mark newton standing by on the floor of the new york stock exchange. what traders are talking about ahead of the big close today. chris has the biggest action from the pits of the cme. and allen is monitoring energy markets down at the imex. our top story right now, businesses in baltimore are still recovering from the riot that shook that city earlier this week. retail shops and smalls were looted and closed while the 45,000 seats at camden yards left completely empty. orioles win over the white sox yesterday. riots have been extremely coste. 1992 riots in los angeles cost an estimated $770 million in insurance losses. how are businesses in
3:03 pm
baltimore faring? as you look at those numbers. 1967. detroit, 42 million. now 295 million in $2,015. again, la hit once again in 1965. so this is a big impact for the budgets of cities. and we don't know the numbers yet for baltimore. but blake burman joins us to give us a sense of what the city is facing today. obviously, there's a lot of rebuilding. it will take time, blake. blake: that is exactly right, cheryl. we've been speaking to employers throughout the day here. one of the patterns we've heard is how the week long 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. curfew has impacted them already. a barbies owne barbusiness owned his bar that seats many people is projected to lose 14,000 a week. because they asked to close early, his
3:04 pm
bartenders aren't taking home as much. a couple hundred dollars a month. another manager of a restaurant who we spoke to on tuesday told us then his worry was the week long curfew and how that would impact late night food orders. now we called them back earlier today, they told us indeed business has been slow. the empty camden yards ballpark during the baltimore orioles game has been well-documented. this will impact the baltimore ravens who aren't in season. they will refund those who bought tickets for the game they canceled. governor hogan was asked on tuesday how baltimore businesses would be impacted in the long-term. he said it would not be easy to get businesses back. the property casualty insurance association of america. how much will this cost? they said way too early to tell.
3:05 pm
cheryl: you're talking about wages. you have no idea what that will be. aren't the kids coming out of school and coming to look at the nation's capitol. isn't that starting? >> certainly a beautiful time in this part of the country. when we were there in baltimore on tuesday, going into a lot of restaurants. they told us their capacity was about at 50% on tuesday. and that was, of course, the day after monday night when a lot of rioting took place. this was specifically in downtown baltimore where we were. those were just a couple of examples that's throughout the city in parts. cheryl: great stuff covering that story. blake burman out of our washington, dc, bureau. let's get to these markets right now. rough day for the markets. the numbers are heading sharply lower. second day in a row that we've seen this type of action in the last hour of trading. there was data showing a sharp slowdown in the pace of economic growth in the first quarter. not a good gdp number.
3:06 pm
crude oil hitting higher. touching a new 2015 high. that's the highest level since december 12th. what's the trade as we head into the month of may? you know the old saying -- i never really bought it. let's get to our floor show. traders at the new york stock exchange. the cme group. the imex. and nasdaq director. i want to start with you. that gdp number was a rough number. i'm seeing some estimates that the second quarter is starting to look negative as well. >> yes, the first quarter gdp number was very, very soft. came in way below expectations. there is a fear that perhaps it wasn't all weather-related, which was the blame. but that we may see spiller effect into this next predicted number. cheryl: we hope not. you can't blame the weather. that's what i hate to
3:07 pm
hear. here's the thing that i was looking at. in particular with regards to the dow, we're in the middle of earnings season, the question is, if you don't have growth, how do you have earnings? if you don't have strong earnings? how do you hit market highs? it will go the other way. we're seeing that today. >> we've seen a revenue recession earnings. revenues have been disappointing. it's been going straight down. that's troubling. markets are somewhat resilient. slowly, but surely, you see these groups fall by the wayside. the biotech stocks. the semiconductors. we're at pretty critical numbers. health care which has led the entire year will be one of the worst performing sectors for the month of april. whereas energy has been the best. energy which had underperformed dramatically is now showing signs of strength. part of this is normal. the indices are still in
3:08 pm
good technical shape. we've seen the biggest decline in the dollar index in almost four years. since april 2011. this month however has been one of the worst months for the us dollar. now the us ten-year back over 205. cheryl: that could help us companies. not for this earnings reporting season. maybe the next one. chris, we were just showing the s&p right now. we're pushing session lows right now. the low 285 or below that on the s&p. >> yes, we actually have a target back at the key support level of 2040 for taking off much of our position. we think it will be range-bound. we will be adding to the short if it dips below that level. the key action is just the action of the futures and how previously last quarter, going into the close, you would have a series of higher lows, higher highs.
3:09 pm
you would have strength going into the close. the most recent trading sessions, lower lows and continuing lower highs. and so all these failed rallies going into the close makes for a week sort of culture. a bias on the floor. a lot of these traders are starting to finally shift the reverse. they're not getting run over at the close by going short. so look for a 2040, 2050 range by end of next week. cheryl: wow. another bearish call. allen standing by. oil prices. we've been ticking up. tick up. here we go with oil. right in the summer driving season. how do you feel about the trade? >> i'll be bearish on crude oil also. i don't think we have much upside left. a lot of news in the marketplace. bullish news. gotten us to this level. overbought territory. 6157 as a top for crude oil. after that, down it goes. i think we'll show below $50 again.
3:10 pm
cheryl: miles, you're with me on set. one of the things you had been looking at had been oil. we're still at historically low levels. a lot of people are scratching their heads. but we have stability in oil right now. >> it's been the last rebound off the session lows. we're living in this different new paradime. you know, the million dollar question is, are we going to continue to trend higher? or will we move around current levels which would have big implications, as we've seen in europe with the deflationary environment they're dealing with. and also while it could be seen as a positive for the consumer here in the us, we'd like to see more of that. it also has negative respects from capex on the corporate side. cheryl: we would like to see the consumer get back in the game. we're not seeing that. the markets are in part reflecting that. we're sitting at session lows. in particular for the dow jones industrial average. i mentioned this a few
3:11 pm
moments ago, the s&p as well. 17,785 on the dow. again, as we move into the close. fifty minutes in trading, guys. here we go, another rough hour for all of us. thank you so much. my floor show was wonderful today. i wish the markets were wonderful. see you back here tomorrow. closing bell, don't go anywhere. forty-nine minutes to go. a lot is happening. we'll be looking at other stories. if you're thinking about a last-minute trip to vegas. you don't want to look at the markets right now. i get you. i hear it. you better have deep pockets. hotel tickets. the mayweather pacquiao fight costing a lot of cash. we'll ask the mayor of las vegas what the fight of the century means to sin city's bottom line. and san francisco gaming company glue mobile known for its ties with kim kardashian and katy perry. big boost today. it has nothing to do with a celebrity either.

(?) over the years, the build-up, five, six years. and having an undefeated champion in floyd. the greatest of the greatest. there's a passion in the world for manny pacquiao. how he's so popular because he's a legislator in the philippines. we love having them both here. we've had great fighters here. muhammad ali. sugar ray. this is just something

3:28 pm
slammed into the back of the baltimore police van. that broke his neck. this is the abc local affiliate. reuters is coming out with this headline. no evidence that freddie gray was injured during the videotaped arrest. you've likely seen that video on fox business. while also sources are saying the medical examiner found that gray's fatal injuries was when he slammed himself into the back of the police van. that broke his neck. we're getting more details. the local police investigation has been turned over to the state attorney general, the state of maryland. follow any breaking news and development we get out of baltimore, maryland. thirty-two minutes away. as we get into the market close. shares of glu mobile. gluu. the stock is soaring. that's a 24% gain. this is the san francisco celebrity-themed game

>> right. charlie: most of it -- half of it has been implemented. right? >> at the sec it's only about half. charlie: every banker i know, ceo would love it to be replaced with something more manageable so they don't to have comply with so many rules. really that have nothing to do with the financial crisis, by the way. >> right. charlie: what do you say? >> there's always political change in washington. i think we should take a hard look at whether the whole statute should be eliminated. you know, the narratives that underlie dodd-frank, wall street greed regulatory failures, of course, some of that in the crisis. but it wasn't the cause of the crisis. we know it was failed federal housing policy. charlie: super low interest rates. >> monetary policy. these things cause the bubble. we've never had a searching inquiry to the actual causes. charlie: so let's break it down. we would need both houses of congress to be republican.
3:31 pm
>> right. charlie: and you would need a republican president. >> you would, absolutely. charlie: if that happens, which a good chance of that, you think it goes? >> i think they'll look hard at it. and they should. this is a fatally flawed statute. charlie: so paul ryan and the powers that be want to let it go? >> they should. i hope they're watching today. charlie: when you drill down to the regulatory apparatus in the banks right now, it's causing job losses. you don't see it with waves of layoffs. let me give you an example. barclays is shopping its brokerage department. maybe 1,000 people total. 200 brokers. barbarclays is coming under a lot of pressure. there's another layer of hoops they have to jump through. >> that's right.
3:32 pm
charlie: clearly they need to eliminate costs. will we see this keep going on for the next five years, where banks, these foreign subsidiaries squeeze down the balance sheet? >> there's a rule that mandates new holding companies for the subsidiaries of the holding banks. the fed wants to treat them like bank holding companies. it doesn't make a lot of sense because they're not. they're brokerage firms. not banks. they're not taking deposits and making loans. they want to be treated like banks. when you add bank-like legislation, you know, you can't afford to run it. cheryl: they had the protection back in the day. good thing at the time. the financial crisis, now it's not. it's not working anymore. >> yeah, it's apples and oranges. charlie: you think they'll contract more, the deutsche banks, the barclays. >> they will. they will. when the fed implements the rule under

dodd-frank, they don't do a cost-benefit analysis. they don't do it. very clear about it. charlie: has the vocal rule -- now, that's the thing that says you can't do proprietary trading. using your balance sheet to take a trade. has that been implemented totally yet? >> i believe july is the implementation date. charlie: the last time you were here? how long ago? >> a year or two. charlie: you said within months of that it wouldn't be implemented. it still -- >> i'm here to say, i'm correct. cheryl: victory lap here on the show. >> i believe the fed is given another extension of another year. not prop trading, but other funds. some speculation there will be more. it's up to the fed. it's not a multi-agency vote on the extension. charlie: but it's still not -- >> it's still not in place. the impact has been felt tremendously. it hasn't been formerly felt. >> volcker is talking about a new way to
3:34 pm
regulate the markets. can you explain that a little bit? >> he has a plan to rethink the regulatory structure. dodd-frank said it would think the regulatory structure. and alphabetize -- >> we should throw up a chart. of what banks -- how it's regulated. it looks like. if you see it. and i have it here. cheryl: we don't have the chart. charlie: if you look at this -- cheryl: look at charlie's notes. >> raw shock test. charlie: that's what they have to supply with it. >> i if you the put it on the sc website. cheryl: thank you so much for coming. really the voice -- i feel like i had the voice of reason in front of me. which balances out -- all right. thank you very much. great interview. >> all right, the closing bell, 26 minutes to go.

why he's shrugging off the latest gdp numbers. nicole let's start with you. >> it's earning season. big sell-off 200 points. very heavy volume. which is notable. movers, which is taser. multi year high. 7.5%. particularly with all the news we've been hearing about watching police and the like. yelp under pressure. that's down 24%. and the big behemoth, the 60 billion-dollar company, that's colgate palmolive down 2%. they did see profit on the rise. revenue was troublesome. and concerns about the dollar going forward. strong currency headwinds to be specific. cheryl: the dollar in the headlines. woulwe'll see you in 11 minutes. todd, what is the most important you're looking at? >> we're absorbing what happened after the fed. stocks a little bit lower. gold getting crushed. yields higher, and treasuries. all of them leaning towards the fed that may
3:50 pm
tighten or hike rates sometime this year. i'm not sold on it. and if you look at the shortened fed fund futures which tell the whole story, they aren't moving either. right now, the market is reacting to some liquidity issues. also acting in accordance with what the fed says and not what the fed does. ultimately, i think these prices will reverse themselves as we head down the line and into the summer. cheryl: almost like we're getting into the reality that the fed can't keep the interest rates lower forever. thank you so much, todd. well, the latest gdp estimates fell way below estimations. the fed says the economy needs improvement. my next guest says don't worry about it. the market looks to be in great shape. he may regret saying it. the consumers are going to step their spending. brian perry. okay, brian, you said this to our producers before today's big sell-off. so, you know, fair and balanced here. what do you say about the sell-off in particular today?
3:51 pm
>> you know, honestly i like days like today. this gives us an opportunity to really find some things that we like at discounted prices. like, if you can kind of get away from the headlines of the day and take a little bit longer focus. things are getting much better. the consumer spending is going to start to tick up as the year progresses. with that, q1 is kind of behind us. and we think q2. q3 gets significantly better as we go down the road. days like today, if you can pick up stocks on a discount, it's a great way to do it. cheryl: this has surprised me. not just the gdp numbers. also the fact that we've had low gas prices. oil prices. et cetera. it didn't really translate to the consumer. people are nervous about spending. they're still nervous about their own net worth, their home, et cetera. what do you say to the concern of the consumer? >> i think it's justified to a certain extent. i think the job picture
3:52 pm
