Watch CNBC's full interview with legendary investor Paul Tudor Jones at Davos

Paul Tudor Jones, chairman of JUST Capital and chief investment officer of Tudor Investment Corporation, joins "Squawk Box" to discuss the markets, interest rates, the world economy and more.
Billionaire investor Paul Tudor Jones said the stock market today is reminiscent of the latter stages of the bull market in 1999 that saw a giant surge that ultimately ended with the popping of the dot-com bubble.
“We are just again in this craziest monetary and fiscal mix in history. It’s so explosive. It defies imagination,” Jones said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” on Tuesday at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. “It reminds me a lot of the early ’99. In early ’99 we had 1.6% PCE, 2.3% CPI. We have the exact same metrics today.”
“The difference is fed funds were 4.75%; today it’s 1.62%. And back then we had budget surplus and we’ve got a 5% budget deficit,” Jones added. “Crazy times.”
Asked if investors should sell now to avoid a blow-up like the one that took place in March of 2000, Jones said, “Not really. The train has got a long, long way to go if you think about it.”
The legendary hedge fund manager and trader noted that the Nasdaq Composite more than doubled from a similar stage to the dot-com bubble top. “That’s a long way from now. At the top theoretically, rates [would] be substantially higher.”
The stock market hit a peak in 2000 before the dot-com bubble burst. The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite approached 5,000 in early 2000 then dove thousands of points, crushing investors.
Jones, founder and chief investment officer of Tudor Investment Corporation, warned that the new “curveball” to derail the bull market could be the outbreak of the coronavirus.
“That’s a big deal. If you look at what happened in 2003 ... stock markets sold off double digits. If you look at the escalation of the reported cases, it feels a lot like that,” Jones said. “There’s no vaccination. There’s no cure. ... If I was an investor, I’d be really nervous.”
The virus, stemming from Wuhan, China, has killed six people with confirmed cases in China totaling nearly 300 as of Monday, less than a week before Lunar New Year, when millions of Chinese travel at home and abroad.
The Centers for Disease Control told Reuters Tuesday that a traveler from China was diagnosed with the first U.S. case of coronavirus in Seattle.

    Sorry Mr Jones I know you're legend, but I tudi stock mkt to understnd & this is the mist evil industry excrpt for real estate. There arr mny of us thatferl this is evil. We couldcnge our od so all hve enough, but the mkt gsmes hsve captured msny people's lifr. Money is phoney fiat, but this playing with it vs using it to help the needy. You tslk freedo, but mny of us tt worked all our lives are hojeless due to mkt tinting RE eg ( the big short ). I feel all of you are sick & the Robin Hood gsme doesn't give people dignity, but our systrm lso does nt let them feel success as our ide of success is not making a crsp lod of money. Our idea of sccess is seeing sll penjoy life, hsve enough, helping othes, not collecting homes, cars, & all trpping. As Eschler paintings show, you ladder to success isnot ours, but we must live inflated houses with high rent whe n we k litte money. It is thd real estste cbsl mnopolh fter thd dtovk mkg mknopllh. All of yoj hvd inddr perks so it like chetjng= fstef comuterd, a tes , quik ngofmaion you ysd OPM- other people's money. We don't want tk play these games get hurt /destroy others' lives . But we should be allowed to earn enough to live. It's a sad world you helped carve for all of us. Perhaps we can get back to being human being now vs slaves- since fist is phoney anyway, don't you think it's time to end our suffering from your inflation ue to so much money printing ( part of which paid yoj big wage, bnuses, stock options). I would go on but the top thinks we don't understsnd (we do, e knkw it's all lies , cheating, greed etc ). We know a lot, too much as we've lived in countries yo horted, decimated.

    Waiting and waiting for Joe to chime in with some good old-fashioned "profits at any cost" rhetoric. Sorry Joe: very encouraging comments about CEOs now willing to refocus business practices. It suggests to me that many more players in corporate America would embrace bottom up reform, and that, among the Democratic field, Michael Bloomberg would be the ideal Presidential candidate to bring that about.

    LOL… I do find all these “analysis” by that pathetic muppet with delusions of adequacy, alonf with so-called “financial experts” and presstitutes really entertaining sometimes - especially as they are now also blaming the corona virus for the "downturn in the markets". Meanwhile, back in the real world, the more they keep pumping up the ponzi bubble - again - the bigger the pop, it will make the criminal insanity of 2007 look like a fart in a bathtub… FFS, if the “united” states GDP is nearly 3/4 mindless, debt fuelled consummer spending and they are already maxed out in surging credit card and other forms of debt because they already have 3 or 4 or more TVs, phones etc. - and are also getting screwed on health care, student, car and now AGAIN on home loans - at the end of the day they can NOT afford to buy any more crap! And NO amount of absurd inflation or “employment” and “income” figures can change that! Therefore China WILL slowdown as their mindless consumption and increased debt won’t pick up the slack, which means they will be needing less raw materials which will affect many countries - especially Australia and Canada! And THAT “virus” will definitely spread around the world! Now add to that the fucking FED with Wall st. and the cesspit of London playing silly buggers with more “QE” (which makes other similar insanity look like small change in comparison) as well as the REPO fiasco and the parasites re-buy and trying to re-package - AGAIN - their grossly over valued crap, anyone really paying attention can see that the fan is now spinning out of control - AGAIN! So yeah, with many major players in recent years also grabbing as much gold as they can lay their hands on, what could possibly go wrong with the dollar?

      noIMspartacus Right now I would say that we are in risk off, that is why you see JPY, CHF and gold continuing to appreciate, and the high beta currencies continue to fall. And why are we in risk off, because of the coronavirus. I get what you are saying BUT right now the market is focused on the coronavirus, every time there is negative news regarding the virus the safe haven's continue to appreciate. Of course all of that can change depending on the progress made or lack of progress. The market isn't focused on what you are saying, and it clearly shows that by the way it's acting....... I rarely listen to people but when I do I listen to what Paul Tudor has to say, because he knows a LOT more than me and you! And why do I say that? Look at his accomplishments as a trader....... and being able to predict the outcome, enough said
