4:01 am
i am guy johnson. >> and i am olivia sterns. giants arete, how ad sinking their teeth into the suarez incident. >> and alibaba picks its new -- picks the new york stock exchange to host its ipo. the name, baba. the eu has signed a trade deal with the ukraine. that country is very much now at risk of seeing retaliation from russia. hans nichols is at that you summit in brussels, where leaders are meeting this morning. first, the details of the deal. >> well, this is an association agreement, which basically lois -- lowers tariffs between 300, angola, moldova, and ukraine. this is the approximate cause which irritated russia and started this entire crisis. here is what happens next. one, we wait for a response from moscow.
4:02 am
poroshenko has that he plans to ratify this as soon as possible. once it is ratified, you start harmonizing all of the different agreements and languages. what does this do to a potential ?xtension for a cease-fire the cease-fire expires later tonight. we must say it what -- it has not been much of a cease-fire. angela merkel acknowledged that. about the divisions between the u.s. and the eu in terms of a third round of sanctions. but there is another wrinkle. eu, the within the divisions seem to be that germany is pushing stronger for preparing additional sanctions. italy is on the other side. they want to put the brakes on further sanctions. it looks less likely that we will have more sanctions coming out of this. we have to see what will happen from moscow's response. also, what is the response of the ground in ukraine? will the cease-fire be extended for additional days?
4:03 am
>> it also looks like it is shaping up to be something of a coronation. what is the latest you are hearing on juncker? -- aght coronation coronation, but with plenty of intrigue and backstabbing. prime minister rajoy has said that he is basically through. there is not much opposition. it looks like cameron will be increasingly alone. losts lost holland, swedish support. the question is, at what damage? the british papers are full of some personal charges that juncker, and this was raised at the meeting, that he has problems perhaps with drinking. perhaps he is not the right man for this. what is interesting about these allegations, and they are just allegations, is that they mark a shift in tone from the united kingdom. before, it was always about the policy of having a federalist, a strong eu advocate in the job.
4:04 am
now it is getting a little personal. we will see if there is much space for david cameron to climb down from this position. angela merkel, of course, wants to offer policy concessions. that may be how the conversation will turn, away from personality. when you are talking about someone's drinking, hard to make a pivot that quickly. >> it certainly is. it will be interesting to see if they start talking a little bit about the makeup of the theission and which job u.k. gets. that will be fascinating to watch in the next few days. thank you very much indeed. top companyn to our story now. barclays back in the spotlight today. the ceo is promising an urgent investigation after new york attorney general alleged deceit in barclays dark cool trades. manus cranny is here with more. ceo anthony jenkins looks like he has to act quickly here. some real delivery.
4:05 am
business is beginning to move away from barclays. deutsche bank, a lot of the big names apparently draining liquidity from the old. to me, the interesting part of that story is they had not been doing business. goldman sachs, j.p. morgan, and morgan stanley were not doing business with lx. that tells me a great story. did they know? eric schneiderman, the attorney general, caught up with us. >> one of the things barclays was doing was changing the data and misleading clients about how many of the trades were actually filled in barclays own dark cool. they had all of this elaborate propaganda saying that they go with whatever market is best for the client. fact, the data that this director was repairing for a big
4:06 am
institutional investors showed that 75% of all trades were filled in barclays are cool. that thet on to say immediate aftermath is going to tie up with a potential fine. these allegations have been made. what anthony jenkins does from the top is going to directly impact in terms of how they are treated. what they do not want to see is a lack of cooperation. for me, you are breaking the trust. you break the trust once, it is hard to win that back in terms of other mandates of business. that is what jenkins is selling. >> let's talk about culture, reputation, how you take the business forward from here. he is already in the process of significantly changing the investment bank. this is only going to make it harder. british politicians are going to be looking at this. regulators are going to be looking at this. how hard it is to change a culture within an organization like barclays.
4:07 am
>> culture at barclays -- anthony sullivan did a review. incapable of justification. that is what people within barclays, in terms of their view of what they should be renamed -- remunerated. some seemed to lose humility. this is a whole culture of you that -- a culture of remuneration, particularly in the united states and with the emphasis of this dark cool. it takes years to build up these equity trading relationships, both on the underwriting side, the ipo side, and on the equity trading side. your customers begin to understand that you have been tolicitous and they begin question the whole relationship. >> in that interview had with eric seidman, -- we had with eric schneiderman, he said it is the fact that they were self-dealing. >> yes, and this is the point.
4:08 am
in other words, barclays had business. they did it in their own dark pools. i understand somewhere in the neighborhood of 70%. ,hey were telling their clients come to our dark cool because we do a much smaller percentage. that was not the fact. the individual change that presentation, refused, and was fired. >> so many people in the office had to know what was going on. --i do not know that one can i mean, you have got to say to yourself, if this was a great part of the business, why did jenkins not no more? is this the hangover from bob diamond? this goes back to around 2010, 2011. it is not as it jenkins has not been in the seat since 2012. he has been in the business as ceo. he has a certain amount of
4:09 am
responsibility to know what is going on. business is equity what he wants to do. this is a real slap for anthony jenkins in terms of client relationships and trust. >> alibaba lance to list shares on the new york stock exchange. of course, a blow to the tech-heavy nasdaq. alibaba's ipo is expected to be the largest ever in the united states. the company will trade under the ticker baba, which is apparently good luck because ba sound like prosperity, which is -- >> fa. and it also is eight, which some people think is really lucky. this is the third biggest tech company listed on the nyse, coming after nyse won the twitter ipo. why are people leaving nasdaq? look at what happened with the facebook ipo.
4:10 am
they botched that, basically. in august, there was a three-our trading hold because of a technical glitch and it seems like nobody clearly understood. if you are alibaba, you are trying to figure out what exchange to list on. you want to guarantee that this will run smoothly. down to an entertaining e-mail earlier on saying what else a baba is. it is a cake with rome-flavored syrup. >> he is lucky. one of our tops warning stories this morning. nike reporting numbers last night. this comes as the world cup battle in brazil continues. nike will be hoping its sponsorship of some key teams and players will continue to drive its growth in its football unit, or soccer unit, as some call it. >> football for the rest of the world. >> we are here with more with nike's ambitions and caroline hyde, who has been digging into
4:11 am
this. how is nike doing? >> they are getting there. their football unit is growing by 20%. they are only .5 billion left. nike just started to get serious about football back in 1994. adidas has been sponsoring fifa since 1970. if we look at the numbers first, sales up 11%. profit beating by 5%. interestingly, women fueling demand. the females out there and the runners out there as well. it is about jogging. huge in northis america. north america was the bright part of the sales. it has not really caught on in europe as much. athletic gear in america all day long. everybody is in leggings and running close regardless of whether or not they were exercising. >> it is fashionable to look fit. >> but you have got to be fit to look good in these voting -- cl
4:12 am
tohing. >> not really. all across america, women are wearing athletic loathing all day long. >> look at the revolution back to nike air max as well. a massive fashion icon at the moment, to be back in the nike hightops. women on the street have also got u.s. china where. they are seeing a resurgence. problems with too much old year not selling -- gear not selling. we are looking at football and how they are doing versus adidas. they are pretty and neck now. if -- neck and neck now. both have five teams. >> spain was a bit of a disaster. >> result, france, greece, netherlands, usa. nike sponsored england as well, but nevermind. adidas, you have five as well.
4:13 am
have 50% of the boots out there and social media is where nike is really dominant. they have double the amount of his book likes compared to a d this and four times the amount of twitter followers. -- compared to adidas. >> huge in social media and still big and software even though they are not making the fuel band anymore. >> there were talks that they hat, but they are keeping the software. maybe they will team with other fit makers of the wearables. >> we now know what olivia sterns wears on a saturday to lunch, brunch, whatever it is. >> 100% and i am not alone. if you go to brunch in manhattan, every single woman has jogging pants.
4:14 am
>> let's just leave that one alone. let's change gears completely. coming up, is juncker the right man for the eu commission's top job? david cameron says absolutely not. more on this story when we come back. ♪
4:15 am
4:16 am
>> welcome back to "the pulse."
4:17 am
david cameron's eu isolation appears to be deepening. he is digging in his heels against jean-claude juncker even though eu leaders are set to confirm him as the next president of the european commission agreed we are joined seniorete generale's economist. they are said to be discussing fiscal reforms over breakfast. what else would you discuss over breakfast? is there anything that david cameron could get that would more palatable? >> i think so. there is a general understanding in the eu that you need to reform and come up with reforms that create future growth. tapeis a red liberalization, more free trade, etc. there is the potential the potential that cameron can come out with something out of the meeting. >> what is a win for cameron now? is it the internal market
4:18 am
commissioner? what kind of role does he need to see to bring back to london and say, we are making progress here? in thes difficult short-term. the big win would be if you could steer the discussion towards more growth. and exactly how to do that. we are having, at the moment, a bit of discussion about whether fiscal rules should be loosened or not. that is relevant discussion, but it also risks to dilute from the real challenges. >> that is not the kind of structural reform that cameron is talking about. of, let's blunt the pain for countries like italy. >> exactly. that would be a bad thing if this is perceived as ane asing of the fiscal conflict. i think there is a push back on that as well. we will see how it is interpreted at the end of the day. i think the big topics for europe in the future is growth. how do you get growth?
4:19 am
we are talking about the fiscal rules. there is also debt reduction. public debt levels are just stabilizing at the moment. italy is a country which will have a massive challenge over the coming 20 years. is really where the question comes. how do you get growth to support that reduction? be a problem today, but the next time we have a crisis, that is going to be a huge problem. >> do you think the fear is juncker is not the right person to push through progrowth reforms? >> we do not know is the simple answer. the commission does not have a lot of executive powers apart from competition. >> maybe we should not be so afraid of juncker. >> he might be a good deal breaker. he has that background, so he can perform that. the worry is that he is representing -- he has been around for a long time. he is representing the old eu
4:20 am
and maybe that is why cameron has a problem with him. personalities need to be put aside and we have to look at the challenges that the eu is facing in the coming years. >> from an economic point of unionwould political change the game for europe? -- youextend the juncker put him in place and he had been in favor of a closer europe read if you were to extend that argument, is there an economic upside to him pursuing the agenda that he has pursued in the past? >> that is the long-term outstanding question. do we need more fiscal union to make the monetary union more stable? there are a lot of reasons to look at it. we need a stronger banking union. these are the questions we have dealt with so far. fiscal union becomes very
4:21 am
closely entangled with the bureaucratic procedures, how you vote, etc. that is much more difficult. from an economic point of view, i think the monetary union would be stronger if we had the fiscal union, the eurobond, a single instrument in europe that would support -- , would be inroadly favor of that? >> he is a federalist, so he would like to see more and more integrated europe and -- integrated europe. has asion has the limp -- limited role. commission facilitates what the government want. >> thank you. >> still to come, israel does not have much water and it has even less snow. how does it manage to become an industry leader in making both? we are going to find out why and how when we come back. ♪

>> good morning, everybody. welcome back. you are watching "the pulse." let's find out how the markets are trading. >> we are actually paring losses on the equity markets. volumes are about 30% of what they would normally be over the past early days. a couple of different things going on. house prices, according to a new
4:25 am
survey, the slowest pace in five months in the u.k. that is good news for the bank of england. here in the heart of europe, in rising tou are seeing a record. you are also seeing consumer missing estimates. germany, we are waiting for a little more inflation data. the other areas have all beaten estimates. consumer confidence , michigan consumer confidence, in the united states of america. that is going to be important because you have the yin and yang. bullard saying rate hike in q1 of 2015. consumerher side, spending this estimates and called a little bit of a disturbance in the market. we will keep an eye on those. that will be the driving force as we go to the close of the week. it will dictate how much of the losses we actually begin to pare
4:26 am
on the european board. as far as europe is concerned, business confidence rising. a little bit better than the market's estimated. bnp paribas have written a note this morning. saying it will be a good deal and have raised the stock to neutral from sell. getting together with al jazeera could perhaps fray some of that. as for the positive nike effect that we had in the first instance of trading this morning, it has dissipated a little bit. puma brand. that adidas had a nice jump off the open, but overall, retail rising .25%. >> thank you. >> coming up next, a bloomberg exclusive. we will be live with andrew sentance. we will round up what has been
4:27 am
another big week from mark carney and why he thinks we will see a rate hike by the end of this year. >> we will also talk about clean energy. ♪ . .

4:30 am
>> good morning. you are watching "the pulse." we are live from bloomberg's european headquarters. i am guy johnson. >> i am olivia sterns. british prime minister david cameron is in brussels today. eu leaders are set to confirm juncker as the next president later on today. >> he is the wrong person. he will increase the power of
4:31 am
brussels and reduce the power of nationstates. meanwhile, eu leaders in brussels have signed a historic agreement with ukraine. the creation of a free-trade area. the pact strongly opposed by russia. >> rebekah brooks meets the press. the former head of the u.k. unit says she feels vindicated by a jury's decision to acquit her of all charges related to phone hacking. assent of the crimes that i was charged with and i feel vindicated by the unanimous verdict. >> staying in the u.k., let me bring you the latest data in line with expectations. gdp final read came out. 0.8% as anticipated. no change. that makes britain still the fastest-growing g7 economy. the recovery faces a number of
4:32 am
risks including potential bubbles and productivity puzzles. on thursday, mark carney unveiled tools to tackle surging house prices. has he done and off? let's find out. andrew joins us now, a former member of the boe's monetary policy committee. good morning. macro prudential tools sound great, but carney made it for a clear that they are designed to prevent the housing bubble really spinning out. not going to have much meaningful impact now. would you agree that at the moment monetary policy and macro prudential policy is in the right face or do you think we should be further forward? can object to what the financial policy committee came up with yesterday. mark carney announced precautionary measures. i do think what the economy is telling us, we just had the
4:33 am
confirmation of that 0.8% growth figure. gdp is consistent with what is going on in the housing market. the level of interest rates seems to the too low. i think the mpc needs to start addressing that issue and start raising interest rates like they said they would like to do. findey don't do that, they themselves behind the curve. >> when do you think we are going to see an interest rate hike? >> i think we will see the first rise later this year. if we continue to see good numbers, the labor market looks relative or strong, so i think that all points to the economy continuing to grow. when a 14 on average will be the strongest g7 economy in the calendar year. i think this -- we have come to the point where we need to stop talking about raising interest
4:34 am
rates and do something. >> it seems to be a great vindication of george osborne's austerity package. you say the labor market appears to be relatively strong. it sounded to me like carney didn't approve that much. he started talking about pockets of weakness because there is no wage growth. >> wage growth has been worse but if you look at what surveys are saying, they are saying employers are finding it harder to get the skills they want. that is often a leading indicator that wage growth is about to grow. if they want to have this gradual rise in interest rates, they do need to make the first moves when wage growth is subdued. if they wait until inflation is a danger, they will have to move rates more sharply. >> when did you start calling for a rate hike? in 2010.arguing for it when the euro crisis kicked in, it was clear that we needed to
4:35 am
get through that. when we got towards 2013, i thought that was when the bank of england should have started debating a gradual rise in interest rates. >> where his inflation 18 months out? >> i think inflation is going to stay around the target. the risks for inflation are twofold. one is that wage growth picks up with low productivity. secondly, if the world economy picks up we could well see another surge energy and, that he prices. the oil price has already been quite responsive to the situation in iraq. interesting little bath, they -- once economic ropes economic growth tops 2%, which side will you be on? >> i don't think there is such a linear relationship tween growth and inflation. even in a subdued growth environment. i do think there will be upward
4:36 am
pressure in the medium-term if economic growth continues at the current rate. the mpc should head off that. not wait until it happens. >> it sounds like you disagree that macro prudential tools were the way to cool off the housing crisis. you think interest rates should be higher up in the toolbox. >> i think the tools you used it and on the whole picture. you shouldn't just look at the housing market in isolation. if the housing market was bubbling away and the economy was subdued, macro prudential tools might be the more appropriate thing to do. what we have got is a strong economy, falling unemployment, alongside an improving housing market. the economy and the housing market are both pointing in the same direction. this growth rate is clearly unsustainable? where do you think potential growth in the u.k. is?
4:37 am
>> i think 2014 will turn out to be as good as it gets. an average rate of growth so far in the recovery including the recent orders, just over 1.5%. i think we can do better than that. in the second half of this decade, we can grow it over 2%. ,omewhere between 2% and 2.5% we should be looking for growth to settle down at. >> carney has been getting a lot of flak for supposedly having a communication problem. people say the bank of england is acting as an unreliable boyfriend. what do you think of that? do you think arnie is ms. communicating? >> it is proof of the old adage --when the facts change, i change my mind. the economy has changed over the last year. guidance gotorward off on the wrong foot by
4:38 am
suggesting that rates wouldn't rise until 2016. they should have made more of a conditional nature of the guidance. they should have reflected what they said then, once unemployment is down, there should be a debate about raising interest rates. so far, no single member of the interesto did for an rate rise -- has voted for an interest rate rise since 2011. even david is beginning to sound like he is changing his course. is do you think the debate pc the right path within the m at the moment. if people like david are beginning to change direction, clearly we are close to a rate hike. beyond that, once they have got the first one in the place, how do you think the dovish people are going to think about where we go from there? seekingnk we should be
4:39 am
to achieve a gradual rise in interest rates. it doesn't give a big shock to me. all the staples of npc members have been consistent with that view. members may of the be thinking that we should be having the first rise in the second half of this year, which would be my view. there might be others who want to wait until 2015. >> what is the gap between the first and second one? >> i don't think the mpc will have a definitive timing. they will see how the economy responds. i don't think they will see month on month -- >> a lag of what, 12, 18 months? you are not going to see the reaction -- you may see indications but you will not see a full-blown reaction to the first hike for an extremely long period of time. you have to get a judgment. >> the tradition has been to use
4:40 am
the inflation forecast as an opportunity to reassess. i think at each inflation report forecast, we have the next one coming up. do we need to start raising rates? i think that will be on the agenda in august. there might not be a strong enough opinion. will probably be acting roughly in line with the inflation report. >> it has been a pleasure as always. thank you very much indeed. andrew joining us, former bank of england policymaker. come, sinking their teeth into suarez. how at giants are cashing in on the biting incidents. ♪
