"Street Signs" is an American television business news program that airs on CNBC at 2:00pm ET.

About the show

It was originally a two-hour program that aired on CNBC from 1996 to 2002-02-01. It was cancelled effective 2002-02-04 and "Power Lunch" occupied its vacated slot as a result of CNBC's revamped programming line-up. On 2003-12-08, former "Business Center" co-anchor and original host Ron Insana revived "Street Signs". And on March 2006, "Squawk on the Street" co-anchor Erin Burnett replaced Insana as the program's new host.

This program focuses on the day's market action. In addition, prominent Wall Street analysts, investors and executives regularly appear on the program to offer their perspective.

"Street Signs" anchors

*Erin Burnett (2006-present)
*Maria Bartiromo (2pm ET, 1999-2002)
*Ron Insana (1996-2002 (3pm ET, 1999-2002); 2003-2006)

"Stop Trading!"

At 2:40pm ET, Jim Cramer (host of another CNBC program, "Mad Money") presents the "Stop Trading!" segment. In this segment, which formerly aired on "Closing Bell" prior to 2006-09-11, Burnett asks Cramer about the stocks making news, and also asks him for his take on the day's markets. After the segment, a full-screen disclaimer is shown as "Street Signs" go to a commercial break.


Jim Cramer's on-air tirade about the weakening economy, which was seen during the "Stop Trading!" segment of this program on 2007-08-03, garnered widespread attention and helped galvanize the Federal Reserve Board to cut interest rates.

CNBC Asia's Amanda Drury was a guest anchor on three editions of "Street Signs", all during the holiday-shortened week of June 30-July 2, 2008. This program didn't air on July 3, 2008 due to the early close of the US stock markets.
