5:34 pm
the lowest prices since 2004. amid concerns of a slowdown in major economies like china. so, what does all of that mean for you? well, the average 401(k) of $92,000 has already lost nearly $7,000 in value since the beginning of the year. and david, there's an old saying here on wall street, as january goes, so goes the year for stocks. 70% of the time, that old sayingg is true. and we're already nearly halfway through januy. david? >> gio benitez, thank you. americans desperate from an escape for an uncertain economy are getting in line for powewerball. we are hours away from the drawing. $1.5 billion and counting now. and just look at the les across this country. from the border of nevada and california ther lines stretching for bcks tonight. out the door of so many gas stations and grocery stores. and after multiple drawings and no winner, tonight, there isn 85% chance that the winning ticket has already been sold. but to whom?

5:46 pm
tonight, very important tips coming up here, and the three biggest regrets about questions not asked.when i lay in my tempur pedic contour then i slowly feel it start to kind of wrap itself around me. my mind just kind of gs blank. then the next thing i know it's morning. with tempur-flex you've got the spring and boue of a traditional mattress then it al adjusts to my body. my cloud feels so comfortable. it feels like somebody's hugging you. how can a bed dodo that? this is the best investment of your life becaus this is where dreams are made. (vo) this year, change your life with your best night's sleep. change to tempur-pedic. i accept i'm not 22. i accept i'm not the rower i used to be. i even accept i have a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat
5:47 pm
but i won't accept is getting g t there with less than my best. so if i can go for something better than warfarin, i will. eliquis. eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin, plus it had significantly less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis had both. that really mattered to me. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you mabruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquimay increase your bleeding risk if you take certaimedicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i accept i don't have to set records. but i'm still going for my personal best. and for eliquis. reduced risk of stroke plus less major bleeding.

5:49 pm
getting a low monthly payment. it sounds good, but to do it, you need a longer loan with a higher interest rate, costing you thousands more in the long run. instead, go for the lowest price possible. >> you have to empower yourself to be a smart shopper. >> reporter: finally, a new car depreciates by about 11%, just as soon as you drive it off the lot. so, consider buying used here's apparently what's not a mistake, buying a car in a bright or unusual color. the experts tell us, they're cheaper and they hold their value longer. david? >> w knew. claytoton sdell with us tonight. clayton, thank you. when we come back here, one l team is on the move tonight. leaving its hometown and headed to l.a. new leadsn the mystery house explosion we told you about. with the family found inside. what investigators are now revealing tonight. and the incredible story, theoung woman coming out of her coma. what she said, what she wrote after waking up that is going viral tonight. we'll be right back. we came up with a plan to help
