Toddo On TV: Fed Still In Control?


Markets, movers and more.

A surge in unemployment demonstrates real weakness in the labor market. Toddo considers what weapons, if any, the Federal Reserve has left.

Lukoil's vice president says it costs $4.31 to draw a barrel of oil from the ground, which begs the question: How did crude prices get in striking distance of $150? Toddo weighs in.

Now watch this! Toddo's eyeing the Market Volatility Index (VXO) (this angst measure is half of where it's been during previous pain fulcrums) and Paul Volcker (the former "Fed head" said the financial crisis is the most complicated he's ever seen). Also, the improving margins of consumer non-durables like General Mills (GIS), Pepsi (PEP) and Procter & Gamble (PG).

Position in GIS.
