Frank Holmes joins CNBC Asia’s Squawk Box to discuss the effects of declining oil prices, and more importantly, how this impacts other areas of the market. Frank says as we see lower gas prices throughout the country, we’ll start to notice a boom in consumer spending which directly benefits retailers. Noting Walmart’s recent positive earnings release as an example, Frank thinks this type of spending sentiment could expand even further into luxury companies such as Tiffany’s.

Watch the full interview here to see if Frank thinks we’ve hit a bottom in oil pricing yet and also to get his thoughts on the upcoming G20 Summit in Brisbane, Australia.
