from bloomberg headquarters in new york, i'm david guerra and here is that we are watching this hour. shares of one core rallied after the company is south -- company is solvent. how should the west react to rush' strike in syria? and apple pay has failed to catch on with consumers one year after it was introduced. marketset's head to the were julie hyman has the latest. julie: we are watching a rally that has remained intact. andee stocks on the rise they are gaining steam as we had throughout the day. the continuation of the rally from friday when we got worse than estimated jobs data followed by worse than estimated
data on the services sector this morning. rates are not going to be going up anytime soon. that could help the snap back and the dismal third-quarter that was for stock. we have some important stocks doing well with general electric rising on that investment. rising,t and cisco also so it is a cyclical rebound, but a lot of different groups are participating. david: i have to ask about the bond market. julie: we saw a significant move below 2%, reflecting the perception the fed will remain on hold for the rest of the year. we are seeing that come up with the buying of stocks and selling in bonds driving yields higher but still close to 2%.
take a look at my bloomberg terminal at what the expectations are for what the fed is going to do. 10%t now, we only see a chance that we would see an interest rate increase. it only goes to more than 50% at the march meeting and the expectation continues to come .ower and lower that is the chart you see at the bottom of your screen, the diminishing expectations there. chart and how it is being posted into the swap market. the bottomslice it, line is the fed says rates are going to be going on at a certain trajectory and market participants are not buying it. david: thank you very much.
it was only a week or so ago that we avoided a government shutdown and here we go again -- our next guest says there's a 50% chance there will be a shutdown in december. expert and aget bureaucratic bookie. why are you placing the odds that 50%? and: i'm starting at 50% could go up from here. all of the decisions will be much more difficult. we will have a new leadership team, and untested new leadership team that may not know where the coffee machines are. just a few hours ago, they said it's not part of his vernacular. planned parenthood is still around -- in other words, we have not solved anything.
it will be much more difficult for everybody. david: you have speaker boehner was something nobody could have predicted. i'm curious what kind of vacuum that creates. having speaker boehner say he is out. for a sort of more cohesive environment. was a weekboehner and still is a week speaker. look at what has happened -- there's a challenge that the leadership has opposed. i know boehner and mcconnell would like to cut a deal with and democratse and the white house are saying no. it's not clear that the
republicans are going to follow. david: i want to ask about the debt limit and the debt ceiling. how fraught do you think that part of the argument is going to be? stan: i'm one of the few people who doesn't think that's going to be a big deal. that's the bill that keeps the government-funded, so it is possible they will have to deal with that if they don't do a temporary short-term extension. republicans have come under a lot of pressure -- if you want to mess with something, it should be the continuing resolution to shut down the government. i'm one of those people who think that the debt ceiling will be punted and they will fix it for a year or two. david: i used to live in washington and i've -- what do
people in washington make of how quickly this happens and how cyclical it seems to be? not even cyclical anymore. one thing i hear from our clients is this has become business as usual and they are discounting some of it because it hasn't happened. the i try to tell them is situation is significantly different and the republican caucus is two or three parties working together in a parliamentary system. has come before should be taken as an indication of what will come. david: it seems like the lost art is the business of governing on the hill. when you look at that, is there interest in that? it's a tool he sees in his toolbox. >> it's also a significant part
-- am republican caucus going to argue with the premise -- it's not as if it is a lost art. reason for being in washington. making government work that are or work at all is not what a significant part of washington is trying to do. republicans feel that to the extent voters don't like the way washington is going, they tend to vote against government. that's a vote against republicans, they think. david: what are we looking forward to? on october 8, we may have a vote for republican leadership. that's the next big thing to
happen. david: thank you very much. we have a first look at what's coming up with mark crumpton. mark: an american airlines violet dyed midflight after a medical emergency. the flight left the next certainly after midnight. it was diverted after the pilot's death and the copilot landed the flight safely. there were 140 passengers on board. no word on what caused his death. the rain keeps pounding south carolina after three days of historic flooding. rescue teams are going door to in swampheck on people neighborhoods. at least nine deaths have been blamed on storms into states. more than a foot of rain fell across south carolina and drenched the other states. joaquin is hurricane

attempted acquisition of a german company. it was an $8.8 billion acquisition and potash has been pursuing them for about a year's time. finally giving up on that and that's sending its shares up to some degree. disappointment that deal was not going to go through. i guess the question is what now will happen within the industry and will there be other companies trying to acquire them? largest of these companies. i'm also looking at alcoa. it's a big week for the company and they report earnings after the close. it is usually seen as the leading edge in terms of
companies reporting their numbers. a fastenings contract. this is a large contract for the recognizes theo transition they have been trying to make some raw aluminum to a maker of finished project -- finished products. of aluminum itself has not been very strong. david: thank you very much. what is -- what does the future of finance look like? tomorrow, some of the most lauded leaders will come together at the most influential summit and they will share their perspective. erik schatzker will be in the middle of it all and he joins us with a preview of the event. who will you be talking with? erik: i'm very fortunate because i get to conduct two conversations.

at first wordook -- mark crumpton has more from the news desk. mark: an amtrak train headed from vermont to washington, d.c. has derailed and central vermont. late word from the associated press quotes amtrak officials as saying at least seven people were hurt, one seriously. theak says the rate -- train struck a rockslide about 20 miles southwest of mount hillier. outgoing house speaker, john boehner, says his replacement will be elected october 29 with other leadership posts decided later. the republican conference is still meeting to elect a speaker nominee by secret ballot. kevin mccarthy of california is considered his likely a successor. but jason j fits is mounted and unexpected challenge. the u.s. and 11 other pacific rim nations have agreed on the landmark free trade deal and already, ford is calling on congress to reject it, saying the deal fails to address

what has been driving all of this? i think what is going on is that it's a company that wants to be a private company but it is a public company. you will have thousands of analysts converge for an event called metals week. i will be there and bloomberg will have a huge conference. we asked glencore to speak and they are still thinking about it but i have a feeling they may not do it because it is not their style. the problem that hurt them this year is that by being a bit of a private company and not really going out and telling their story, some analysts decided they would tell the story and they started to tell a very negative story and that started the stock down. then we had the news last thursday that really crushed the stock. barclays met some investor groups and started to tell their side of the story, that they better learn how to
tell their story to this street. the chairman of bloomberg nonexecutive and just bearing that in mind, i know they have been trying to reconfigure itself and has done away with its dividend. what kind of shape is this company in? ken: glencore is the creme de la creme of metal traders. a lot of people thought they would go back private again. it's the premier company in the space in terms of trading. it has left them with some debt and they are trying to recognize -- trying to reconcile that. how do they move metal and oil and make money from it? what are they going to do with the cash flows since the merger? have madelysts
comparisons to lehman and say they have the lehman moment and have debated that comparison. one analyst says the company has leverage but it is not near an x essential threat to the company. after the 2008 financial crisis, regulators have forced big banks to get out of the commodities lending business. the risk is if all of the banks stop lending to these companies come a would be a major problem to the marketplace. i think what they became comfortable with is there is stuff backing a lot of their trades and it's a bit of a risk that regulators have foisted it again, glencore
is the biggest and most stable out there but it is public. this: you mentioned company has not been a great job telling its story what is going on here. have they gotten better? are you finding when the market moves that it's able to make a convincing case? ken: i think they are thinking about that strategy more. they really need to do that a bit more and become a bit more out there with the financial media. i think they are being forced to do so whether they like to or not. to be a bigntinues story. thank you for taking the time. up, tensions continue to escalate in syria as russia steps up its airstrikes and nato calls an emergency meeting over what it calls an unacceptable intrusion.

david: welcome back to the bloomberg market day. i'm david gora. let's turn to the tent situation syria where the russian military continues to construct -- continues to conduct airstrikes. the british premise or says it's not helping the fight against terrorism. mr. cameron: the tragedy is most of the russian airstrikes have that imparts of syria not l, but by othersi opponents of the regime. so they are backing the butcher, i thought, which is a terrible mistake for them and the world. it is going to make the region more unstable. david: joining us now is
nicholas burns, the former u.s. ambassador to nato. what approach do you think the u.s. should be taking in light of what we have seen russia do in the last few days? burns: the u.s. has to decide how it's going to respond to this major russian strategic move over the last week. the russians have completely repositioned themselves in syria and built up their military apparatus. they have lighter aircraft and they are conducting major bombing campaigns against groups that are friendly to the united states, britain, and other western countries. it is a policy that needs a response and perhaps putin has bitten off more than he can chew. in a way, they are going to let
and it is essential to make sure we do not collide both air forces. but if you have not seen the kind of strategic counter move from the united states a lot of critics have called for, which would be for the u.s. and its allies to arm the moderate and intensify our own air campaign against islamic state. president putin is the one with the initiatives. david: a lot of people have floated the idea with the u.s. enforcing a no-fly zone. what would make that difficult? theburns: i think administration has exaggerated the degree of difficulty. we have a lot of experience setting up no-fly zones. we've done it in a rack to great effect. there is an obvious need for it.
the syrian government is using barrel bombs and firing them indiscriminately to kill thousands of civilians and terrorize them. they are creating a refugee stream blasting into civilian neighborhoods in aleppo and the mask to the -- and damascus. to create refugees owns where they could go for support and safety and have the protection of the no-fly zone is something we know how to do well. turkey is now part of the u.s. alliance after many years of not doing so. the arab countries are with thed to working united states and the european allies in nato, this is what we do as a matter of course. if the obama administration wishes to do it, the administration does not want to be pushed into any kind of more pronounced role in syria. is the a no-fly zone
best way to protect civilians and limit the ability of the syrian government to extend its power. david: i want to ask about the diplomatic channels between the u.s. and russia. a chilly meeting between president putin and president obama and a warm relationship the o-matichey have equivalent of a friendship. what does that mean for the diplomatic relationship between the two countries? thaturns: it is important we have talks between the government. theye sanctioning government and trying to isolate russia. to be realistic, russia has a major impact and influence in syria and russia was a major part of iran negotiations.
afghanistan and counter narcotics and north korea, russia is a factor in the world. servingn in diplomacy both republican and democratic administrations that you most often have to work with governments you might not like very much. you have to work with it, if you are looking for nonmilitary solutions. is going toat war end, maybe years from now, unfortunately, at the negotiating table. that would mean the united states and russia have to talk. i don't think president putin and president obama have an effective relationship, but seems to be ay bull communicate clearly and i
think that is a positive. david: you mentioned the huge .nflux of migrants into europe at some point in your career, you were ambassador to greece. what has been going on in that country and how are they dealing with it when it comes to its relationship with the european union starting to go through a jet assess? mr. burns: it has been a horrible set of circumstances in greece. this for the half-year time of economic uncertainty and collapse. greece has been experiencing a depression, their economy having with used over 25%, unemployment levels at 50%. experienced a much deeper crisis than the united states and canada and now, to be hit by this refugee crisis, some of these tiny greek islands, you
15,000ave 10,000 or refugees and it's the capacity of the government to handle an influx of people. it is quite evident. i think the greeks are in a difficult time of testing on the economic front. they have this agreement with the european union and other creditors. can the greek government regain their economic footing and be in a position to repay those loans? that is the question. on the refugee front, they are getting help on the european union, but they need more. it is a country under assault and the government's ability to just be effective on a daily basis is being tested by both of these crises. nicholas burns, former ambassador to nato, thank you for your time today. switching gears, vanity fair's annual power list of the leading
innovators and disruptors is coming up. emily chang joins me now from san francisco with more. what can we expect to hear from this conference? what are you looking forward to? it is a very exciting conference and last year was the inaugural conference. this year, they have mark zuckerberg joining them. he is number one on the new establishment list. the head of design at apple will be on stage and we will be catching up with a lot of great people on the sidelines. oaks, the fair creators of "silicon valley" on hbo. opportunity to get some time and talk to them about what they see as the future of technology. this is the one-year
anniversary of the release of apple pay. since the release one year ago, we have seen lackluster adoption. of retailor just 1% transactions. has it been a failing of apple to push this out and make it something consumers would be interested in? that is something merchants are telling us. for example, panera pay says it's in the low single digits right now. another retailer we spoke to said apple is not doing a very good job promoting it. ishink one of the problems some people don't know how to use apple pay and don't understand why they should. it decreases the time it takes at checkout but it's not difficult to take out your credit card. apple is saying they are only looking at more growth going forward.
they are looking for more growth down the line. one thing that is happening is there's a huge shift to chip and pin cards. that could increase the amount of time transactions take it you have to leave your card there a little longer which might and send people to use apple pay. david: i'm curious to what degree this space is competitive. do you have -- is it a pretty slow space overall? emily: google has been trying to do this for many years. it was called google wallet and nobody used it. google is trying to rebrand with android wallet and samsung has its own version. it seems very few people are using these competing services. if you look at the broader landscape, they are leading in the sense they have the most fairly so far, but it is
lackluster. it is something that will take time to get them place if indeed it does. i have apple pay on my phone and my watch. i don't really use it that often -- that often. david: let me ask you what has come up on your show. talk to me about what you have coming up. i'm so excited -- we have one of the characters portrayed in the film, he is portrayed by jeff daniels in the movie. michael fassbender plays steve jobs. this is a role a number of actors turned down, including leonardo dicaprio and even aaron sorkin did not want michael fassbender to play this role, but now they are talking about oscars.
a number of people who have seen the film are positive about it, so we will talk about the portrayal and you can expect more coverage of this movie. david: have you seen the movie yet? but i didave not, interview aaron sorkin last year and he told me t was the most proud of any script ever -- he felt so good about the way he wrote this movie, that he could wait for it to come out. david: thank you very much. , theg up, deepak chopra author and motivational speaker is teaming up with paul tudor jones. find out what the unlikely partners are working on. ♪
