yankees catcher spent 18 years in the majors and played in more than world series -- in more world series games than anyone. decades after his last game, he was celebrated for his way with words. he coined the phrase, "it ain't over until it is over." tom: we talked earlier about this. i had the clearest memories in fenway of mickey mantle stealing second base, whitey ford pitching, and a guy named yogi berra catching the ball. there will be baseball statistics, but what we do not understand is these were the rock stars of their age. there was no other competition. first -- football was an afterthought, hockey was an afterthought. the scope and scale of the new york yankees -- i cannot really think of an equivalency. vonnie: no wonder they were rock stars. tom: it was a separate time.
6:04 am
yogi berra was the most basic of the basic. his parents were basically very poor st. louis immigrants. eighth grade education. he fought world war ii -- he fought in world war ii off a boat in normandy on d-day. he was a star on a team with joe dimaggio and mickey mantle. you are looking at me like what you are you talking about? vonnie: no, i'm not, i was reading about this today. tom: we remember from our youth, it is not just about little cute yogi phrases. we have a quote from --" in the next hour. let's do a data check. equities, bonds, currencies, commodities. the markets are exceptionally nuanced. euro-dollar 1.1130.
6:05 am
on to the next screen, if you would. , 22.44.he vix it is stronger yen, weaker euro. that there's close watching. but the number one focus right now is the agent -- the asian currencies. brazilian real making history yesterday with weakness. this is the chart of the moment. ofe is the asian crisis 1997-1998. a week asia taking out abenomics in japan. here is the strength of the asian currencies. what an elegant chart. just a beautiful, beautiful chart. this is the tension where we have new asian weakness. you wonder when the currency war cuts in. some of that as well as the 2% appreciation from china. we will see if it takes a turn upward again.
6:06 am
tom: some of the other smaller four daysof asia -- on from an historic fed meeting, global markets are riveted to the dynamics of foreign exchange. the litmus paper of the system, currency pairs -- they say all. whether brazil or indonesia, fx signals the tension of the moment. part of the tension is in europe. jon ferro is in vienna, austria, after an important ecb interview. first of all, on these interesting markets, four days on, what do you glean from foreign exchange right now? jon: i think the basic question is what we saw after the fed a week ago what was that the federal reserve was not going to move. a lot of people shifting perhaps into 2016. a lot of people are asking the question, a weak dollar, stronger euro, story -- does the ecb need to do more? the conversation i had today did
6:07 am
not take that box at all. i know you are going to talk with me about it later. today,versation i had then maybe the emphasis is shifting away from the fx channel. that will be a subject of debate for months to come. tom: jon ferro will join us in moments with this interview with mr. novotny. paper, four-your paper, negative yield. and the euro is down to 1.1134. it was at 1.14 a day or two ago. again,at i would state globally, the nuances of this market are fascinating. part of that is it is a time of cheap money. we will adjust the initial public offering market later, confidence out there right now -- i go to the weather's first oil announcement
6:08 am
yesterday. they were going to do this, do this, do this, and shareholders go maybe not. our shareholders in charge of the thanking, the m&a, and the ipo process right now? >> that is a really good question, because if they are, why are there no deals in the tech market? we see almost no volume on the ipo market on the public side. decidinge shareholders when to go, or the bankers? are the other market makers deciding where to go? ceo's, why go public when you can get as much money as you want? rett: public markets are for liquidity, not for fundraising. tom: is this harmful to the american system? on the broader theme of american capitalism, if this environment
6:09 am
has changed because of central banks, do you deem it harmful to america? the last quarter, we saw $7 million go -- $7 billion go into private markets. no problem raising money in the private markets, and these companies are funded. the question is, now that these billions are coming from black where is itel going to come from? tom: have you seen more empty floors? rett: people are coming out of the systems. this is the promise of tech. it is really bad for overpaid people. vonnie: so these companies have no problem getting private money, but how much debt are they carrying? little.ry most of the capital flowing into these markets is equity.
6:10 am
tom: i want to show this. this is 336 pages. the kkr deal. wallace has rett done -- he reads the documents involved. today, does anybody read this stuff anymore? rett: we read these documents, and sometimes they are good and sometimes they are not. this one, you cannot model it. we score for obfuscation and for transparency, and we also score for jargon. tom: are you scoring this tv show? rett: i cannot disclose that, and we introduce a new metric for this one which is gobbledygook. different from the gobbledygook of 1999. us --it is more volume in inous than theume in u
6:11 am
gobbledygook of 1999. when they are done, we can here from first data. vonnie: where is that particular phrase on your gobbledygook? rett: unicorn is jargon. tom: we are going to come back, but, rett wallace, i want to come back and talk about this unicorn, and a deck accord? dekacorn? what is that? rett: at a million range, there privately traded and not talking about going public anytime soon. tom: we will talk about ipo's later in the hour, maybe after that groupon announcement yesterday.

6:15 am
clues for ecb policy echo jon: he did not, and i think that is the news. the series of ecb officials march out, act -- late, and -- dovishly -- yes, there are downside risks. this is what he had to say on some of the downside risks. ewald: it is not about being that bad, but one has to have a realistic perspective, and weeed what we see is that had increasing risks to emerging markets. it is not just china. perhaps china is not even the number one element. about the rest, the other
6:16 am
emerging markets. the situation in brazil, the situation in russia and other emerging markets. that is something that is clearly a downside risk. jon, we have mario draghi speaking as well or it is ewald nowotny going against what mario draghi is telling the markets? jon: very possibly. the core of the ecb, they have talked up the need to do more. what i thought was really interesting about today, tom and i will go back and forth and talk about the fx market and how the stronger euro or the stronger yen pushes the ecb or the boj to do more. gauge ofto use it as a whether the ecb is willing to do more. and put the question to governor nowotny about whether the ecb does more. listen to what he has to say about the importance of the fx channel. ewald nowotny: we do have the feeling that the tests have
6:17 am
diminished, that the effects on the exports side, between movements and exports, it is not as close as it has been. we also know that a large part of the fx is because ethics changes has to be in the medium to short-term. answeroo early to get an , but there is a lowering, or a weakening of this commission. ferro, it always comes back to the real economy. give our american viewers an update on the strength of the european economy. is this a europe teetering on recession? jon: not right now, tom. the pmi toss out this morning do not show that at all. we are seeing a slowdown in china, which is important.
6:18 am
we are not seeing that feedthrough into the headline numbers in europe. inflation is low, just above zero, but we had not seen it show up in data in a big, big way. we are way off from falling into the next recession. jon ferro, thank you very much. look for his interview with mr. nowotny across all of bloomberg media this morning. i look at europe and the predictions made, the article out this morning on bloomberg about dollar strong, dollar weak. four days on, we still have no clue. there: and it is obvious are problems in central banks around the world in deciding what to do next, based on what the fed has done. you heard him say that an prolongation of the asset program will have an indirect effect on the market. tom: the biggest quantitative easing is in japan as a percentage of gdp.
6:19 am

6:24 am
vonnie: rett wallace, i want to bring you in here. this is precisely the point. growth,-3% revenue versus alibaba's 8% positive revenue growth. get amazon can do no wrong. what is wrong with our markets? rett: we love this. as far as alibaba is concerned, how could they not disappoint after they totally destroyed their market debut here. perfect execution. the stock is off by half, which makes sense given what chinese stocks are doing right now. but as a company, it is really unsafe to say that alibaba is going anywhere. totallyng they do is so commending. it will be difficult to see them losing their shares versus amazon or anybody else. vonnie: is it unsafe to say that
6:25 am
alibaba is going anywhere, but also that amazon is going anywhere? guy: now the amazon actually comes into my apartment. they are all the way down on the ground now. what started out as virtual is no very real, and they have trucks on the road and the people are in my house and in my office. tom: you are so good at roadshow analysis. institutional shareholders felt that they had to buy jack ma, that they had to buy alibaba. do they sell those shares three minutes after it goes public? using bloomberg terminal charts. rett: that's right. more sellers and buyers. the market counties off by more than half of what it was. tom: is it still 30 or 40 years ago that people felt like they had to buy shares to launch to the next deal? rett: i do not think jack ma had to seal the deal to be invited
6:26 am
to his roadshow because they were huge on the road. the deal is exciting, and now we are settling into a huge chinese correction that nobody was talking about when alibaba was on the road. the the question is, did game change? here is kkr first data, 336 pages. we have to go. we have to come back. i am all wound up about ipo's this morning. it is large. there it is. coming up, a conversation on pope francis. he is in washington. ♪

6:29 am
, beforehington, d.c. the pageantry that we will see this morning. some 15,000 scheduled to be at the white house, on the lawn, as the president and mrs. obama greet pope francis.
6:30 am
his first visit ever to the united states. right now to our top headlines this morning. here is vonnie quinn. vonnie: thank you so much, tom. as you said, the pope is in washington. he will have a meeting with president obama today. the president and his family met with the pope yesterday when he arrived from cuba. fending offlready conservative criticism on economic news. president, decision china signed a deal to build a 737 completion center in china, the first of its kind outside the u.s. china has ordered 300 boeing jets, all of this according to china's official news agency.
6:31 am
a meeting may decide the fate of vw ceo martin winterkorn. the scandal could cost vw billions in penalties and repairs. martin winterkorn will have to convince a few key players. one is the head of the porsche family that controls the w. vw.hat controls bloomberg news reports the fbi has uncovered work-related and personal e-mails that hillary clinton said was deleted from her server. the device housed her personal account while she was secretary of state. howfbi is investigating classified information was. and a baseball legend is that. you'll give era's mixed up sayings made some forget that he was one of the greatest catchers ever.
6:32 am
he was a three-time m.v.p. and led 10 championship teams. he was 90 years old. he died yesterday in new jersey. tom: he essentially invented the modern catching game. i want to know what johnny bench and others think of him. yogi berra, simply a catcher. tough: he said once it is to make predations, especially about the future. tom: that covers our entire week last week. thank you, you'll be berra, for that -- thank you, yogi berra, for that analysis of janet yellen. sara's and the slums, -- thellas of misery confronted social justice and inequality with his face.
6:33 am
our guest will attend white house ceremonies this morning, "thee is the author of francis effect," which goes over the gloss of the moment of media coverage. what upsets you about the media frenzy over the visit of the pope. what do we get wrong? >> i think some of the focus tends to be on the spectacle of the visit. pope francis is a man of substance. he brings a powerful message to this country. his critique of markets and his desire to put the human person at the center of the economy is a challenging message. to power truth wherever we go we sometimes forget that. the pope certainly has his critics. the movie last night, "francisco," the argentinian movie on pope francis, long before he was pope. and wasuches down greeted by the president, how will he be greeted by the more conservative cardinals of america?
6:34 am
is no doubt that this poll is shaking up the internal politics of the church. he wants a debate in the church. he welcomes that. he is getting it in spades. you are right, there is certainly -- there are certainly conservative cardinals who do not like what he is doing. i think the american people will embrace him. he is someone who wants to be out on the streets with the people. he brings energy and joy, and it makes people look at the catholic church again. vonnie: there are a significant portion of catholics in the u.s. is there a candidate running for president right now, republican party or not, that will speak to these congregations? john: i think pope francis transcends partisan divisions. his message does not fit neatly into our political or ideological boxes in this country. you see bernie sanders talking about the pope a lot. he cannot stop tweeting about pope francis. i think that is because both of them -- and they obviously have a lot of differences -- they
6:35 am
understand the structural causes of injustice in this country, and they want to address that. that is not always an easy thing. again, i think he transcends politics. bernie sanders finds alignment with this pope in terms of his economic critique. vonnie: so bernie sanders is the closest thing, you think. anticipate encyclicals with this pope? john: pope francis put out a very powerful and cyclical in june about the environment. -- he links the economic inequality with the environmental degradation of the planet. i think it is a wake-up call. tom: john, we all remember, those of us who were old enough period from the
6:36 am
1962 to 1965 when the catholic church entered the modern era. john: this pope really wants to bring back that vision of the council engagement with the world. this pope rejects sort of a fortress mentality of catholicism, where we hunkered down. i do not think there will be an official vatican iii, so to speak. this is a reform papacy, no doubt, and that agenda is very clear for this pope. i think a lot of people welcome it and embrace it, and it also causes some tension among conservative cardinals. tom: as one volume on european capitalism, define the appropriate capitalism for pope francis. speaks fromrancis the heart of the church's social tradition when he challenges markets, so this does not make pope francis anti-capitalist,
6:37 am
but it puts the human person at the center of the economy. going way back to 1891, the church had spoken out clearly on living wages and the need to have prudent oversight of markets. the pope wants to humanize capitalism. i do not think he wants to toss it out. i think he understands the benefit of markets, but he also understands limitations of markets from a street-level perspective. this is a pope had his most formative is. since in the barrio's of buenos aires. he will bring that message to washington. vonnie: will this message in washington be about inequality? john: i think that will be a big one. he will connect the dots and lift up the issues of the common good and hopefully elevate our political discourse in this country, which has been pretty ugly in american politics of late. us. john gehring with he has to leave us right now and get through the four-hour security line at the white house. vonnie: there will be some

policy for some of these parties, particularly in northern europe area that makes this issue over immigration that much more important. if you get it wrong, it fuels those kinds of parties that do want to break up the uni. vonnie shows us the polarities, really anywhere. you see it in the united states as well. do you have the same polarities in ireland as well? lingus four times a week, it seems. ireland has the same polarity as austria, doesn't ? vonnie: everybody does. ireland has exports and -- tom: their economy is still doing very well. vonnie: what i want to know from jon ferro, is that flattening to of gdp per capita -- the poorer countries benefit from this rebalancing? jon: that

strong dollar, good news for the like of europe and japan, bad news for the rest. notpick out a point, you do know if it is good or bad. you look at the federal reserve, for instance, let's call it federal confusion because for some people, no move is great, good for risk, but at the same time, no moves, we are sitting here thinking, "is that bad? do they think the global economy is too weak to sustain a rate hike?" tom: i would link it to the policy outcomes. jon ferro, thank you so much for your assistance from vienna. mike, you see the currency markets. i know you do not focus that much on it. what else are you see in? the bond market? michael: the bond market is drifting sideways. prices are a little lower, yields a little higher, but not really telling us anything at the moment. what is interesting is the euro has been falling even this point the fed is doing nothing. tom: i would agree with that.
7:05 am
the dollar dynamics, i would say, like, we are finally there where we have some similes of a redux of the late 1990's. we have a new leg up in trade weighted dollar strength. really gets my attention here to do you sense a tension point of the dollar drives higher? michael: there seems to be. deutsche bank have come across our desk suggesting that the dollar is going to fall back now. it has gone too far, too fast. good news fore the united states but not necessarily good news for mario draghi and the ecb. tom: the new parlor game is guess the dollar. there is no waiting for volkswagen. chief executive officers -- they must delegate to underlings, and it is the underlings that will kill you. vw and 60 years of repetition, it is flat out logan. -- broken.

the credibility, the consumer complaint -- it is overwhelming. tom: is it fair to mr. that he exits if he did not know of these details? starts at theit top. mary went through this at gm. you have to create a culture of compliance. if there was a complicity where i think he had to know that this took place. it is hard to believe that someone in the position -- it is to thing to make an error, make mistakes. if it is true, this was a conscious decision to circumvent the regulations here in the u.s. have you seen this and any -- i will step back -- enron, obviously, criminal fraud, but would it be unique to a particular company, or is that the evo's these days in business -- to stretch the rules as far as you can? robert: what we have here not
7:08 am
only on the epa thing, mike, but we have another major collision in regards to the standards here in the u.s. consumers are voting with their dollars for large trucks, suv's. car companies love it. greater margins. totally against the compliance with the new gasoline standards. tom: are you suggesting that mark feels at ford motor will adapt now? robert: there has to be because they will not be able to meet haveap standards on miles -- of the cap a standards on miles per gallon. that is why you are seeing most of the cars going to electric controls, in other words the old manual hydraulics. earring,got electric everything to reduce the drag on the engine, to reduce the rpm to get better efficiency going forward.

[laughter] plugremember the spark cap? we are going to rip up the script. how could chrysler build a they recruit it with a distributor where you knew they were going to drop the screw in the distributor and ruin the rotation? why do we do that? robert: because we wanted to get you back to the dealers. [laughter] michael: car companies are going to make electric cars. are people going to buy electric cars? are they going to sell enough to bring the fuel standards up? robert: we certainly do not see we?oday, do with oil prices down, therefore gas prices are down, consumers are flocking back to the larger vehicles, and they do not see
7:10 am
the need to buy the electric car. the only thing that is going to aalthy cap -- to help the cap standards is if they put a quota, you can only make so many trucks must so many suv's. tom: we will continue to look across the bloomberg terminal for breaking news on vw as one boards meets today. coming up, the vice president surges in a new bloomberg poll. we will have many details on the most interesting polls, he is not a candidate, pope francis. stay with us.

7:20 am
-- is always the economy, stupid. our survey director joins us now. i was really struck by some of the numbers in here because there have been some real deterioration in people's views on the economy, not just the economy, but income inequality. people feel it is getting worse. overall financial security, people feel it is any worse. people feel the value of their homes is going down. what is happening here? ann: let me clarify -- when we ask is a getting better, worse, or staying the same, there are more people who say it is getting better than getting that proportion is so high purity tracking is going down, so it's a little bittersweet, but it is still a sense that the economy is getting better among more people saying it is getting worse, but that margin is declining, so that is the move. people are so worried. michael: using the survey every month, and you are looking at the changes in people's attitudes. is this telling us about something about the change in
7:21 am
the economy, that people are picking up perhaps for the economic data, or is it because the stock market let down and people like tom keene and michael mckee have been telling people the i sky is falling. this is a political poll, so the extent of the economy is politicized, then there is a right answer. if it is getting better, that would say support from economic policies in place, but if it is worth, you are unhappy about things and really, so it is a little bit about the mood of a nation a little bit better than the economic indicators. i would go to the hard data for economic indicators. michael: we are still a long way away from the election, but is it beginning to shape up as an election about the economy even though we are in -- it is not a poster session election. is about the economy? ann: i do not knows it is about the economy yet. at the end of the preseason where some candidates are deciding that they are not into this game and they are being
7:22 am
benched, however he wants talk about it, but i think if the sense of being ready to take a look at candidates, and what is that they are going to be doing in terms of the economy, there has been very little conversation about that. soul told me the small players could stay in longer because of the big money helping the small players. do you observe that in the polls? do you see a change? ann: scott walker would say "not so much." polls inok at the january, february, march, april, and then it looked like he lost it. why did he lose it? because he was not able to keep the cycle going of having good performances that bentley able to want to support you with their dollars. tom: what about bob nardelli? robert: even hillary is going that way to all of a sudden she is against the xl hartline -- the xl pipeline. why?
7:23 am
because major dollars will support her. tom: tell us about rob nardelli's eastern ohio? ann: eastern ohio. [laughs] tom: i am serious. hillary clinton has to win. ann: it is a must win. tom: what you observe there now? drill downlls cannot as finally as eastern ohio. to be a keyng battleground, as it always is a they have got a candidate on the republican side from that. if he ends up with the nomination, that puts it in play. tom: you guys have got your republican poll coming out tomorrow. ann: we do. michael: the poll has a move up for joe biden. is that because he is getting media attention because we are bored with the hillary coronation in the press and people are writing about him, or is there a genuine groundswell of support for joe biden?
7:24 am
or are the american people just not sold on hillary? ann: there are a couple of things going on. it is more complicated than that. if polla bit of a what because there is no national election that will pit joe biden against hillary clinton, but we wanted to see how that would be out. the fact that he comes in second over bernie sanders, that is meaningful. his national favorability has increased. it has only increased 3 points, but everybody else decreased, including the pope from the last time we measured. tom: what did you learn about pope? ann: he is very popular, including among people who are not catholic and including among people who have no religion, i called in the "nones." tom: very cute. ann: they like his issues when it colors inside the lines of the catholic church, when he steps out to other issues, that gets more risky if he gets political. michael: unfortunately, he cannot run for president in the

this. they are getting ready at the white house, and the uproar in washington. michael: nobody brings up the crowds like the pope, whether you are catholic or not. people want to see the religious leader of the catholic church. the pope every time comes to the united states, people not just gathering around the white house by the vatican embassy in washington where the pope is staying attracting huge crowds. people jockeying for position along the motorcade route just to see him. here in central park, they have to block out and give away tickets to be in the park to line the roads to watch and just drive through when he comes through on friday. tom: and of course at madison square garden as well here in two days. notourse, the pope does wear any branding. he is not premier league in the united kingdom or formula one racing, but he can still do some branding. it will help, among others, a small car company called fiat.

this was a home run yesterday for fiat. robert hurt l.a. is with us and knows a thing or two about branding -- robert nardelli is with us and knows a thing or two about branding. is the remember, fiat brand of choice in italy, so if you are not driving a fiat, you are not patriotic. if you look at e.g. grand cherokee that he customize for the -- if you look at the jeep grand cherokee that was customize for the pope, he got a twofer. tom: is it more chrysler or more fiats that was a success? robert: look at the numbers. it was not for chrysler, fiat what have gone bankrupt. coming out of the economic recession we had in 2007, 2008, and 2009, it was chrysler and the jeep grand cherokee and all the things they did during that period was to reestablish that
7:31 am
brand to keep fiat alive. tom: what i'm learning about the pope pulls up to the white house this morning, you want the canvas top, the jeep safari. [laughter] david: the popemobile is riding on one of those. tom: very good. ann selzer with us now. polling with the pope. ann: what i think is interesting is this is a pope popular with people who are not catholic. veryous support for the specific things that he is changing inside the catholic church, so including more women, saying who am i to judge if a ,ay person is seeking the lord welcoming immigrants, making marriage and all miss easier -- annulmentsiage
7:32 am
easier. very much strong support and heading in a good direction. only 4% of people who are not currently or formerly applix say they are becoming -- catholic say they are becoming catholics. so he is not expanding his flock. david: he is only the fourth pope to visit the united states. ofs is the enormous to a lot us, catholics and non-catholics, it is a very special event. michael: there was a survey that almost as many last catholics, people who identify as such, as you have catholics. how important are catholics in the presidential race anymore? it is not like 1960. not like 1960. that has changed quite a bit. there are ways in which the catholics tend to be of more of a democratic leaning, sort of religion that we as we think about evangelicals being more republican-leaning.
7:33 am
i will say that even evangelicals in our national survey say they feel very good about this pope. tom: how is the evangelical polling now versus four years ago? is there a nuance in the evangelical thrust of american politics? ann: there is a lack of nuance. it is not a growing population. they are looking, and turns of their politics, at a huge field of people were coming up to court exactly them, so they have not landed on anyone just yet. tom: i look at all of this, and mike, you go back to the pageantry of it and the moment of it and it goes back to the economy, and the fact is even if it is a good american economy, it is not the economy we need. the pope comes to america with a subpar economy from where we were. michael: the thing that stood oll is thein ann's p people who think their children will do better.

7:36 am
under the markets there? julia: i think it is the first piece of good news we've had in a while, so at least that has stopped getting worse. we still need to see what will come out of that, and we still do not have dates set for those votes that are so very important votes. things are that quieter, but i do not think we can call a floor yet. tom: i think, julia, the budget is extraordinary. the budget deficit nears very much the explosive weakness we've seen in the brazilian real. thea, if we can move from fiscal policy, you take the news isvolkswagen, petrobras maybe right behind volkswagen as the corporate screw above the moment. give us the update on his giant oil company. what you look for in the rest of september and into october? from: we are waiting oakland to cut more of its investment plan given how the

to have it every day -- unbelievable. did you spendtime with your controller worrying about foreign-exchange dynamics? i'm going to guess you spend a little time. robert: a little bit, but mostly it was from a hedging standpoint. brazil, it is not a hedging standpoint, it is salvation. robert: even in china, if you look at what happened to the there, we used to monitor -- my was growing up in ge, japan was always the barometer on how we looked at the exchange rate. now what is a global economic market. tom: and complex. is this good for america? when you see this complexity, does it think about what better america? robert: what it shows is the dependency the u.s. market has on the global economy and the exchange, not only the exchange rate but the exchange of goods. it is a very, very challenging period because you do not have stability in the market anywhere , so the ceo today has to have a much broader view every day.

7:53 am
block and you see miles per gallon, who here has ever gotten the miles per gallon that has been advertised for both city and highway? because i have never been able to.

[laughter] michael: how realistic are those numbers to begin with? there has been some findings relative to also the state epa or miles per gallon alsod. again, it is a very standard test, rigorous under certain conditions that are governed by the government relative to how you comply. and again, in everyday driving, different factors -- road wear,ions, tyeire weather -- all come into play on that. again, you have a set of standards by which he tests and comply to it i would tell you at chrysler, we did not fudge on that. david: what does this standard say that regulation?
7:54 am
are the standards too ambitious? the way in which this unfolded, what does that say about regulation? look, you know, it is like apple pie and mother, you want to reduce emissions, you want to get better gas mileage, but we have got to make sure that the technology is there, able to comply, and the cost thern benefit is there for manufacturer. possibly what happened with the vw case as they could not come up with the technology, they found a workaround to be determined, and it was only within the u.s. market because the epa requirements in europe are more lax than a are here in the u.s. tom: hans, you agree with that, that volkswagen was almost lulle intod this by being in europe and having more lax regulation? hans: they wanted to play in the european clean fuel area. instead of going electric light we'll do an auto companies it, they went diesel and not quite make it.
7:55 am
-- instead of going electric auto companies did, they went diesel and did not quite make it. they have a lot more pollutants. i mean, paris has a small problem now, in part because they have been so heavily subsidized, diesel technology has been heavily subsidize, and they admit a lot of carcinogens. michael: hans, you said it would be a big problem for the investment in diesel, particularly in europe. i am asking bob nardelli here is diesel goes away in the united states, does anybody care? robert: it is not be few and the engine of choice over here, which was one of the challenges we had. do we spend billions of dollars to be compliant on a very small market? if you look at the ability to get diesel fuel, it is not as readily available in the u.s. as it is in europe. it is the fuel of choice over there, so we thought it was a very small market when we were looking at it. i'm nichols, thank you so

>> good morning it is 8:00 on wall street. the dog that did not bark. china gets bad news on its economy. at this point, and looks like the rest of the world is not paying a lot of attention. let's take a look at what is happening in the markets. a pessimistic read on chinese manufacturing. a private report falls to its lowest since 2009. the financial crisis. you can imagine what happened. the stock market falls 2% on the day. the hang seng gets hammered, 2.3%. carmakers including volkswagen rebounding today helping push european stocks higher. the dax is up by 69 point 7/10 of a percent -- 69.7 tenths of a percent. in the united states, the era of good feeling continues although
8:01 am
feeling is not as strong as they were an hour or so ago. futures are up -- s&p futures are up by a point. nasdaq futures are higher by seven. today, are watching still volkswagen. martin winterkorn gets a chance to make his case before the executive committee of the automaker's supervisory board. what did he know and when did he know it? the answers to those questions may decide whether he will stay on the job. , the popeo the u.s. in washington driving around in his fiat. he will be pulling up in that car at the white house in about an hour. gather ceremony, crowds around the white house now. he will address congress before
8:02 am
coming to new york and shutting down the city completely. xi jinping in seattle yesterday. he is announcing china will buy 300 boeing jets. no doubt there will roll out the red carpet when he visits the plane manufacturer in the northwest today. , thetory of the day passing of lawrence peter be rra. 15 all-star game appearances, more world series games than anyone and known for his malapropisms as he once said ain't what it used to be." joining us, jeff degraaf, ceo and one of the cofounders -- he gives and i all things in the markets and like to look at charts and things that make tom keene very excited.
8:03 am
let be get your general view before we get into some of the charts that you follow. on the economy, on the markets there has been a lot of question about whether or not we have run the course in this bull market and whether china is signaling that there are a lot of bubbles out there. this one taking down the rest of the world and bursting. is that your view? is this just an air pocket? jeff: that is the $1 million question. it seems to be an air pocket. i would say there is a contraction in global growth that is hitting u.s. markets. as you would expect. it is hitting those areas that have a high exposure to the international markets. those that are domestic look very good. together andit all
8:04 am
you look at things like the credit default swaps in u.s. banks, they are actually tighter than any other sector. . think this is an adjustment i think there is a liquidity adjustment taking place. in terms of turning into a full-fledged air market, that seems premature at this point. michael: yesterday we had bob shiller on. he adjusts price earnings over a 10 year period. he suggests we are still overvalued. what do you see? jeff: valuation is tricky because the us valuation is a function of liquidity. from that standpoint, liquidity conditions are tightening, not loosening. you see that in the styles that are working so growth is outperforming value. are very things tt
8:05 am
consistent with a contraction in the liquidity environment and when you have a contraction, you generally have a suppression in multiples. the vicks is up 16% for the year and yet you say low vol is better. jeff: low volatility stocks that have less beta. quality is another measure we look at. in this business it is great to think i'm going to buy high quality assets. one of the best things you can do when the liquidity is expanding in the marketplace is to find the lowest quality assets and own them. i know that might seem counterintuitive against the grain. we have shown time and time again that is where you need to be. michael: jeff has been named institutional investors number one technical analyst for the last 10 years. since you are the number one

8:07 am
do you buy so-called head and shoulder mythology? if i have a shoulder and i have a head up and another shoulder, the world will come to an end? jeff: no. we do buy into trends. i think with the head and shoulders represents is the definition of trend, particularly when you have a neck line violation. a trend is defined by a sequence of lower lows and lower highs. the head and shoulder helps to represent that. tom: isn't and violation -- what is a neck line by laois and? -- a violation? why i can't dos technical analysis. tom: your point is well taken. analysis of technical
8:08 am
on head and shoulders, on onport, on resistance consolidation and distribution. his technical analysis about knowing where we have been? or is the jeff degraaf world about guessing where we are headed? jeff: it is about taking the information of today and yesterday and projecting a continuation of that behavior. if you think about it in math terms, think about a regression line. you're taking data points around the distribution and projecting where you think the next one will be. tom: do you extrapolate with a new humility after what you put up with for the last eight years? jeff: we always try to be as humble as we can. , we pride ourselves on quantifying as much of the
8:09 am
process as we can. instead of the guesswork of head and shoulders it is difficult to go back in time in an unbiased way and look at those formations and come up with something. -- we havento developed statistical methods to help us sort through it. michael: the great thing about the show, tom is so smart, i get to be a dumb sidekick. ,f you are projecting forward how does that square with the safe harbor statements we get in every note from every analyst about how past performance has nothing to do with the future? jeff: that is a copout. that is what they are doing, right? we are taking the information and we are looking at it as it is applied in the past and seeing if it has relevance. if it does -- michael: you are saying never mind the statements come a sometimes it does? jeff: absolutely. a company's earnings are

8:22 am
that and tell us what this most looks like. if you look at the similarities, , beforelly stands out we had this explosion in volatility and this drawdown off the highs, our trend work had turned negative. instead of the head and shoulder formation we used other methods and our trend work turned bearish neutral two weeks prior to that swoon we had on that monday back in august. telling because it said that the internal structure of the market was weaker. that was similar to what happened in 2011. over 90% oversold come of the s&p constituents made a 20 day low simultaneously. that does not happen often. 1997,pened in 2011, 2008,
8:23 am
and prior to that it happened in 1978. what it does historically is it gives you a sense of the severity of the oversold condition which is extreme here. i think what is most interesting or telling is that in every one of those instances the market went on to make another undercut low. from our standpoint, it was the beginning of something, not the end. itselfppens to associate from a quantitative standpoint very well with the most recent price action. our real messages, that was a warning shot. at a minimum, we have got a retest that will take place and likely and undercut low four to six weeks past that point. tom: the retest will go below the previous low. does it signal a bear market? jeff: not necessarily. 2011 was the best -- tom: look at the gold chart.

a sense of what is attractive about vice president biden? >> it could be that he is the one not running so he has not been in the spotlight and all of that. was interesting is that there is not that much difference between republicans and democrats in their wish for him to get in. between 40% and 50% saying they wish he would run. they are saying you'd be good for the race. republicans might think he could beat hillary clinton and think she is more formidable. democrats might think he is a good guy. david: a crowded field of republicans with 15. it could be a crowded field of democrats with three. when you look at the basis for these candidates, hillary clinton still polling well with women voters. dr. selzer: her base with women is actually eroding. she isequal -- ethnic

8:50 am
balance sheets to flow at a strong pace in the post lehman environment. you have this combination of overcapacity and debt. let's say if return of investment is falling and the funding cost for debt being stable, at one point you get to a situation where the return of investment is inadequate for the funding cost. then you are forced to do leverage. when you deleverage, you become an exporter of capital because savings have to go somewhere. been -- you have declining currency result. tom: what you just heard was textbook hans redeker. a balance sheet analysis in foreign exchange and economics today -- to die for.

it is about what will happen or must happen because of the movable economic forces. michael: that leads me to my next question about what will happen, must happen with the chinese yen. it has gotten stronger over the last few days. we can numbers of china -- week numbers of china. what is the trend for the u.n. -- for the yen? hans: i think the chinese have provided themselves with increasing a flexibility. when you look at the forecast, we think -- because we are bullish on the u.s. dollar, we think the dollar could -- the most important message is that the trade rated index was stay stable for the time being. china aiming for stability in the forex market.
8:52 am
a number of reasons can be brought forward. the past have seen three to four years that short-term past currency liabilities went from something like 3% of gdp to 9.5%. if you are now weakening the exchange rate, you have an impact on the asset liability ratios domestically in china. when the economy is weak, you do not want that. we have to think about the policy response to this economic weakness. under certain circle -- under current circumstances, a fiscal response would be more far-reaching compared to monetary policy response. thatn, we are expecting the train rate -- the trade rated is going to stay stable.
8:53 am
that means the dollar is going to work higher. michael: does that mean because the dollar is going higher that other currencies are going to have to adjust lower? hans: we think the adjustment pressure is more outside of china. that is where you have bigger flexibility in capital accounts, more openness in capital accounts. here we are going to see in the region, potentially weakness of currencies that includes korea, .hailand, taiwan, singapore this is going to be an important thing going forward. if we are right, that the region has overcapacity and has to deal with debt levels, at the same time, the region does not offer structured capital markets.
