7:11 am
senator, ted cruz. you've got the establishment seeming to choose trump over cruz right roblem for cruz or an opportunity? >> reporter: well, look, the establishment attacks have not hurt at all throughout this campaign. but i think this may bet helps trump make an argument that he is more electable. that's been the biggest challenge for trump is whether or not he can win in november. so if you haves like the governor of iowa, like bob dole saying that he is more electable than ted cruz i think that actually helps trump and hurts other dynamics you're seeing with all this focus on trump and cruz all the other candidates getting drownedr: absolutely. marco rubio, should be a great opportunity for him, the two front-runners are beating it out but he can't get a word in nks very much. i'll have an exclusive interview with ted cruz in new hampshire tomorrow. we'll turn to wall street and that roller coaster, stocks

7:13 am
but that good news foris also a significant blow to the energy industry which lost 100,000 jobs last year and now risks losing even more if oil prices stay this low. >> thee bad news but it can't handle uncertainty so not knowing where the bottom is in oil causes a lot of angst even among the real professional moneyeporter: investors also concerned that a slowdown in china, the world's second largest economy could hit industries here like construction, technology and the turbulence sending u.s. stocks down almost 10% for the year. wiping out more than $2 trillion in value. for the typical retirement that's a loss of nearly $8,300. and as hard as that is to see what we know from previoushe hardest thing to do is the very best thing you can do for your money, those who stay the course are the ones who come out on top. the people who sell in the worst
