tv On the Move With Rishaad Salamat Bloomberg November 16, 2014 8:00pm-10:01pm EST
>> good morning, everybody. we are live in hong kong. i am rishaad salamat and this is "on the move." 30 minutes to go, the hong kong-shanghai connected ready for launch. into recession, japan's economy shrinks again. the odds rise of a snap election. g-20 leaders promising to create growth and jobs. news, thet breaking opening ceremony for the hong
kong-shanghai connect. from the just pictures trading room floor. that is what we have at the moment. we seemingly are finally there. it is just half an hour away. market swinging open to foreign investors in a limited way. it is the hong kong-shanghai connect. we have dave watching the action from the credit suisse trading floor. what is the mood like there? >> good morning. as you can hear from the guys behind me, the decibel level is getting louder. we are entering 30 minutes before the open. that being said, a lot of focus today will be on the backend. a lot of investment and a lot of time, not only from the exchange, from brokerages, all
throughout the industry, they have gone into making sure this open will be very smooth. i just want to mention as well, when we talk about these daily quotas, a lot of chat has surrounded that, is it big enough, i want to focus more on the overall. billion.oking at $3.8 just to give you a statistic here, if we use up the daily quota for the next 23 days, nearly into christmas, we will basically be using the entire quota for this program. we will see how much the appetite is based on our survey. 81% of brokers think that we will hit $3.8 billion. rish? >> david, we thought some of these issues would have been dealt with by now but we still
have some of them. louink it is charles speaking at the hong kong exchange. is -- >> we are witnessing -- [inaudible] this would not have been possible without the massive fromt of effort and help everybody involved. on the hong kong stock exchange, i would like to thank the central government, the hong kong government, our regulators and our exchange. thank all the bodies who have worked on this project, and
participants working for us. without all of these efforts, we would not be here today. as we can see on the screen, our friends in shanghai are beginning their ceremony as well. shanghai-hong kong connect represents a new opportunity of investment. the beginning of a new era. it is a privilege for us to all be here together celebrating this great occasion. [speaking chinese] >> the shanghai-hong kong exchange their, a string a new hering a new era
as he put it. just got some outstanding issues, david. let's get back to david at credit suisse. they are starting to be a bit more tedious than buying. >> not exactly a lot more work but a lot more preparation has to go into selling. when you place a buy order in hong kong, all you need is a hong kong brokerage account. when we talk about selling, we talk about predelivery. the day before or a small window before the trading day starts. that has been brought up as one of the sticking points here. risk, justunterparty in case your brokerage goes underwater. there is also the issue of front running. that said, there is a fix that some of the brokerages and banks have put in place. a good example of that is adding
clearing and custodian services in order for your clients to be able to place sell orders the whole day. it is the first day, rish, and because of the odds of that sticking point that you have to place your shares with your starts,e before the day today will only be about buying shares. that is all going to be buying at least for today. let me also mention, there is still no clarity on shortselling in shanghai. let's not take anything away from it. it is a breakthrough on a lot of fronts. we are counting down to the open for the hong kong-shanghai exchanges which happens in about 20 minutes from now. >> david, thanks for that. david ingles in the credit suisse trading room as he shanghai-hong kong connect gets underway. let's get more from the shanghai perspective. stephen engle is on standby for us.
steve? >> time of the roof off international finance center, in the center of the financial district in shanghai, the rooftop of the ritz-carlton. it is a momentous day for shanghai, of course. for the international investors, this is unprecedented access into the mainland markets. the report is, the individual brokerage accounts and interest in the market here. for the chinese side, this is a further opening up of the capital account in china. further proxy for the reform process in china. also, there is a reason i am here in shanghai. china has ambitious goals to make shanghai by 2020 and international finance center. not to diminish the role of hong kong but to complement it. they have been touting this as a very important step. there is a quota and that will
probably be used up quickly. it is a first step in the whole process. bringing institutional investors and individual investors into , of market has its risks course. this is a highly speculative -- retail-driven market. i talked to the chief economist with j.p. morgan chase and he said this, along with other programs in place are baby steps and should help lessen the speculative volatile nature of the shanghai-asia market. that is why the government is highlighting that importance of bringing institutional investors and the hong kong-shanghai stock connect program. thefully, that will reshape investment base in the stock market. for the global investor, this opens up more opportunities for
different sectors to invest in here in the chinese market. if you look at the index in hong eighting off the wie that index is financial-related companies. they will now be able to invest in mid-cap, small to medium sized enterprises in various industries including consumer-related goods and industrials. consumer trend is the big one here. this gives international investors a broader avenue into this market. >> steve, thank you very much indeed. joining us from shanghai as we get the hong kong-shanghai connect underway. let's find out more on the story which is dominating headlines.
>> hong kong bracing for legal action at any moment. papers published over the weekend confirm those blockades can be removed. andrew davis is here with us now. what are we looking for? published inwas the newspapers to enforce this injunction. >> the students lost their appeal to block these injunctions. they only focused on three parts of the protest area. little sliver of the admiralty protest. this doesn't mean they are going to clear out the whole thing. ,hat if they take down mongkok which the protesters are blocking some key intersections that are disrupting travel and commerce in a bustling commercial district, that will probably be the first step of bringing this to an end. police are assigned to help the court bailiffs come in and
remove the barricades. >> pictures are coming through of the action in admiralty. you were saying this is to areas. >> the part of the admiralty area that can be taken down is just near one office building. that big a space. as you can see from these images, there are hundreds of tents out there. i don't think this initial clearing is going to affect that. once they start taking people off under threat of arrest, it is probably going to be the beginning of the end. -- it is just losing momentum. we do see -- no doubt, we will get something when it comes to the hong kong market as well. andrew, thank you very much indeed.
another red flag from china, bad loads jumping this quarter, up by nearly $12 billion. sources telling us senior governor figures have discussed lowering next year's growth ofget on its current level 7.5 percent. japan's biggest banks are out with results. decline dueosting a to overseas lending. quite a different picture for smaller rhizome -- rival mizuho. you also had a decline in lending taking place. japan is back and recession. the economy contracted for a second consecutive quarter. annualized gdp or should i say contracting 1.6%. what does this do? it raises the odds that the prime minister will delay april's planned sales tax hike and call for a snap general election.
john has been gearing up for the shanghai-hong kong open. about that japan story, the growth story, the yen falling on the back of that. john dawson is here with a look at that and more. >> japan right now is in recession. two quarters of negative growth equals recession. the economics means that the ricochet affect is -- prime minister abe will hold a press conference and delay the tax rise. this year, it went from 5% to 8%. clearly you see the reaction has been negative. only nine gainers, the rest are decliners. all exporters, engineering companies, all these are falling. the biggest gainer, toray
industry, has confirmed that it won a one trillion order from boeing. it also makes cycles for the tour de france. australia is falling 0.5%. japan is falling the most with 2%. we look forward to excitement and a bit of caution, hong kong and china when it comes open in about 10 minutes time. we look forward to reaction to that. backed of these live pictures, this is the ongoing ceremony. that is the hong kong chief executive. the hong kong-shanghai connect is now underway. leung very much part and parcel of this opening ceremony.
thanks for joining us. what did you make of this promise? what did you make over of this summit? >> from a economic perspective, i think it was a great bit of policymaking. we got a strong commitment from those leaders to try to lift global growth. the interesting thing from a macro perspective is the recognition that demand is weak. there is a lot of detail in here around structural reforms and infrastructure. that is important. a recommendation -- recognition that demand is weak. that monetarye policy would be easier for longer, but this talk of alcreased fisc flexibility may see more consolidation over the next few years. of the actual policy recommendations and propositions growththe $2 trillion of
, that really is a political issue in the sense that the policies have to be implemented. here in australia, a number of oppositions are still trying to get through parliament. variousds whether the countries can implement the policies to get that growth. my assessment is that this is a good, strong policy announcement for the world economy for the next few years. >> many people have pointed to it being woefully short on some of the structures they are proposing. what is your view? the detail is obviously always important. the political ability to execute the policies -- each country has its own agenda and policies it has to implement. there is going to be this recognition that they have all
committed to try to do something. >> one of the things which could boost credit in australia is this possibility of a china-australia free trade pact. we could get this this afternoon. what is your view? we are expecting it this afternoon, in a few hours time. i think the word in the last day or so is that it will pleasantly surprise. for australia, the opportunities in china's markets around financial services, particularly around agriculture, we will have to wait and see. this could be a strong, positive announcement for australia. for china, it is all about the investment opportunity. the ability to deploy capital into australia and lift some of the restrictions we have seen in place. it is looking good area -- good. >> great walking to you. we have to take a break.
unexpected contraction. -dollar, retail sales rising 1.5%. the finance minister saying that the qe price in the mid to high 70's is now sustainable. in brazil, the real fell to a etroglasr low after pt postponed its report on corruption and money laundering. those are the headlines this monday morning. chineseext opening, stocks. -- thehe show hong kong hong kong-shanghai connect. it is just moments away. ♪

[applause]
distinguished guests, please stay on the stage so we have some photo opportunities. >> a bit early for champagne but that is what they are drinking at the moment. a historiclling it day for hong kong and shanghai. the two bosses get closer together with foreign investors having less fettered entrance to the chinese market. the retail class in china being able to buy hong kong shares as well. let's get to the markets. offhang seng was on a fly the back of the positivity surrounding all this.
japan is taking a thumping because of worse than expected growth. john dawson has been looking at it all. >> very positive for the hong kong-shanghai connect, which was just launching. up by a percent already, way past the level of 2500. that is a good start. that is the hong kong-shanghai connect. what is that, doing? similar story. also seeing gains. the best-performing indices across asia happen to be hong kong and shanghai. question mark is the tax. there is a temporary relief of the capital gains tax for the overseas financial institution. also temporary relief for the asian investor.
clearly, no capital gains from shanghai buying into hong kong. will that change? how will it change? how long is temporary? these are the question marks that maybe rattle a few nerves. let's go with the positives. both indices seeing gains. the picture so far for asia. if i add in the opening for hong kong and shanghai, there is china with gains now. hong kong is here, up by 0.2 thirds percent -- 0.6%. these three, you can see, the best performers of the day. performers, they are really benefiting. in china, we are seeing with significant
gains. a few decliners but it is a positive day overall. the next-door story is, shenzhen. when will that connect? ,he tax question mark temporary, how long is temporary? >> absolutely. temporary is something we are watching for as well. john was saying there that they would temporarily forgive tax on of thismade on the back connect program. credit suisse is in the mix. david is there at the moment. and us about the atmosphere how that is evolving and whether we have seen any size of relief? to start innt october. many thought it wouldn't get off the ground. >> exactly. i was just speaking early on with the chair of greater china
equities. she said that clarification that haven't play on friday when chinese policymakers basically said there's will not have to pay capital gains tax, that was a big relief for a lot of people. that is providing of a closed across the markets right now. with the atmosphere behind me, i can barely hear. the method will increasing. i am not going to tell you what the orders are not i am hearing a lot of corporate names. that just get some numbers for you very quickly. we did a survey. are expecting northbound activity, money flowing from hong kong to shanghai. you can't sell today. expectbrokerages northbound activity to be filled up. 50% think southbound, the bethbound daily quota will
filled up. just to give you a sense of what is happening behind me, perhaps you can hear some of the traits that are going on -- for lack of a better word, very active. >> david, you are talking to some of the sales traders and the equity team. what are they talking about? >> just to give you some context, the guys behind me -- credit suisse came out with a few names that they mentioned. typical ones. ncent,ong stocks, te lenovo and other interesting targets for mainland investors. , and the hongda
kong exchange which is up over 1%. that seems to be a fairly common theme. you look at the picks from other brokerages as well. bnp, you are also looking at tencent in there. automaker,ing at the dairy, i could go through the list but we would be here all morning. we will continue to watch what is happening across the markets. a fairly momentous moment in hong kong. >> the stock connect together's momentum. latest growth figures out of japan, not such good news. contraction taking place in the third quarter. we were looking for 2% plus growth and we got 1.6% contraction. >> we are in a recession, basically. expected gdp to
move into positive territory. >> in the previous quarter, they had to revise the contraction even worse. >> it was -1.6% the previous -1.4%. and now annualized, that would be -1.4%. it was a rebound from that 7% contraction. >> that was actually revise even worse. does this mean we get a snap election? >> also questions there. basically, we had heard top government officials saying that if gdp comes in lower than 3.8%, there was no way they would raise the consumption tax next year in october. we have to wait what happens for that. we have local media saying that abe will hold a news conference tomorrow on the tax hike and about dissolving parliament. he is seeking a new mandate to boost abenomics.
>> thank you very much indeed for that. we will get more on this and bring in our bloomberg view asia columnist in tokyo. technically back in recession in japan. sherry has been talking about this tax increase debate. how is that shaping given the news we have this morning? >> the tax increase is dead. i don't see any scenario where the prime minister can go ahead with this. what i find surprising this morning is that people are surprised. 1997, the last time japan raised the consumption tax, we had a recession. a lot of economists a year ago were arguing that raising taxes was economic suicide. here we are. this recession is a totally self-inflicted wound. here we are. the question is what steps we need to take to get out of it. it worries me that we are
talking about having a snap election. has thenister abe public mandate to accelerate abenomics. he just has to do it. he has the public mandate to avoid raising consumption taxes. >> this is all about their snap election. is this not election for the reasons of getting -- or is it it only bece or what done because he wants to shore up his position within the party? certainly he is trying to shore up his position but he is a prime minister who has been around for almost two years. majorities in both houses of parliament. he has some public mandate. the japanese people want him to get on with abenomics. the reason they are not supportive is because they haven't felt it. abenomics is all central bank liquidity. they haven't seen the steps
taken by the government to loosen labor markets, make the economy more competitive. needs thethat abe public mandate, he just needs to do something. he needs to act on his plan. this election, i think, is a waste of time. nexte going to spend the four weeks campaigning and looking to hold an election for a mandate he already has. >> what about the prime minister himself, and mr. cu roda -- kuroda. it raises all these questions about whether they will get back to sustainable growth. what are people saying about that? >> japan is not going to get back to sustainable growth unless abe does his part. central bank liquidity is not enough. the boj has probably done more than it can at this point. what does abe do?
kuroda was saying to the prime minister, it is your move. if abenomics all goes bad, kuroda will be the fall guy. that dayda was doing was passing the baton and saying, i've done as much as i can without crashing the market. does have a public mandate to shake up the economy and make things more competitive. he is just not doing it yet. >> great talking to you as ever. mr. shinzo abe in the mix. up next, we have been talking about it all day. it is this historic moment for traders. the shanghai-hong kong connect is up and running. "on the move" returns in a couple minutes. ♪

joined byontext, i am the head of china research at credit suisse. thanks for joining us. when we found out this time last week that today was going to be the start, what was the most asked question from clients? what are the clients going to do? everybody asked this question. >> what did you advise them? what is the best advice leading up to today? --you should consider [inaudible] i understand that quite a lot of people are concerned about issues. some settlement issues. >> do we expect more activity northbound, more activity southbound? what is your general feel? expect that there
will be more northbound activity than southbound. the major reason being that institutional investor base in china is much bigger. >> i think the general agreement right now is we'll see this narrow. kong moremake hong like shanghai, more a traders market? or will it make shanghai more like hong kong, more and investors market? >> in the near term, both. the bigger cap stocks will be increasing more like hong kong in both markets. smaller cap stocks in hong kong, i think there will be more trading money coming here. very comes at a interesting time for the chinese economy.
we are looking at the largest challenges and problems for the macro economy that we have seen in at least a decade. for those looking to increase ,llocation to the mainland northbound, what do you suggest? as far as industries. >> we like household appliances, auto and traditional medicine. these three sectors. generally speaking, they are more geared towards the consumer. not so geared towards the overinvestment. >> why traditional chinese medicine? >> actually, this is a great exposure. financials,at their their returns are very high. they have a very loyal consumer base. faith in chinese medicine. >> i also use it.
>> if you are a long-distance runner, what is good to prevent cramps? >> [indiscernible] >> ok. , top three best plays, top three to avoid? three -- some top of the regional brands. some very unique financial and consumer brands. >> what do you avoid? >> what to avoid in hong kong, i isnk -- retail in hong kong probably difficult. >> so we have to wait and see how this all goes. it is very early. there you have it. the head of china research here at credit suisse. back to you. >> thanks, david.

right.nglis is i want to draw down into the bigger picture. forget about the fluctuations we are seeing, the biggest feature is the opening of the capital account is another step after institutional investment program in the widening of the quote is. and now, we have the shanghai exchange link which is going to broaden the investment a's and the market. it is another step in the opening, even though the quotas are fairly limited. a 4.2 trillion dollar u.s. stock market in the world's second-biggest economy. economist,, goldman is telling us it is very critical for the global investor to diversify to a market like this that is not necessarily asked tied to be fed or the u.s. or what is happening in europe.
he said it dances to its own domestic agenda. it'll be interesting to see how it plays out. i spoke to the jpmorgan chase chief china economist as said many global investors are looking at this direct connect as a proxy to the reform agenda in china. markets are acting positively not only because you have a more broader set of choices but also we see it is chinese reform. these are very important sentiment behind it. you have -- [indiscernible] they do not care as much where china goes, but wants to see the stress reform is happening. he also tells me that the cost of the limited overs here, this is the first step and we'll see how much of the quote is taken up and how much interest
there is. this is what china likes to do in their reform process and opening up throughout history as they been opening up for the past 30 years. the a baby step in see reaction and expand or pull back. >> we have been hearing the institutional money coming from hong kong and that will be on the northbound train." we are hearing about the retail in china. what does it mean if anything? change as significant there are limited investment opportunities in china especially with the property market curbs. the stock market is like a gambling casino. a retail heavily driven market and highly speculative and information traits pretty freely and openly. that is a lot of disclosure issues in this market. you will get more institutional funds in an broader-based and
how potentially as well domestic chinese fonts coming in and stabilizing. does it offer more opportunities for the mailing investors? perhaps, yes. perhaps more stability. we'll have to see over time. >> steve in shanghai. we have to take a break. technology is changing the way you connect with your customers. we will tell you after this break. ♪

flexibility. we were able to work with them to deliver a seamless interaction whether a call center or in branch visit. really changing the way they were undressing the customers' needs. at allowing them to tailor. we think that is exciting. it changes the conversation at the bank. ok. i want to talk about the airport. have you worked with them as well? it has been voted the top international airport. what have you done? >> is a great story. and organization that focus on putting the passenger back in the middle of the experience. and if they were looking for a central platform to bring on the feedback in touch question data,
