francine: draghi delivers. stocks rally. hints at more stimulus before the end of the year. manus: negative yields, and the euro falls. with the euro area p.m.i. back his case for more q.e.? titanse: and tech triumph. amazon, microsoft, and google shares surge after hours after adding $100 billion in market value. welcome to "the pulse" live here in london. i am francine lacqua.
4:01 am
manus: i'm manus cranny. we have got the pmi. we have the composite -- that comes in better. germany slow down -- 54. francine: both manufacturing and services. we are better than expected. manufacturing unchanged, but the services rising from a year earlier. that is the pmi data. the top story this week being the ecb. let's take a look at the big market moves following draghi's press conference. ryan: interestingly have not seen the euro strengthen very much at all on the back of the pmi reading which beat expectations. this is the euro over the last two days. it was tanking. it tanked for 11.5 hours after mario draghi started speaking. everyone anticipating more helicopter money on the way. it's settles a bit now.
4:02 am
you look at the options market. increasingly sense draghi started speaking yesterday, traders are getting more and more bearish on the euro. let's go and look at the stoxx 600. a second day on fire. it rose 2% yesterday on the comments from mr. draghi. and it is up again today about 1%. finally, just because we can, i want to talk about italian yields, which are very interesting. where have they gone? they have disappeared. the whole story is with the italian -- yields you look at the two year, they have moved into negative territory. it is something like 500 to 1%. they moved out of negative territory. the italians will be delighted, or at least the government will be delighted that borrowing costs have dropped to a record low on the back of mr. draghi's comments. manus: ryan chilcote on the markets. we are joined by neptune investment manager and cio.
4:03 am
james, great to have you with us this morning. let's get your perspective. there is so much expectation now. what do you think will deliver the most bang for his verbal book? - buck? james: i do not think you will have any problem beating expectations in december. he knows he has to beat in order to get the effect. i think he will pull through. he always says. francine: i'm actually quite surprised because he has not spent a euro cent yet. once again he is moving currency. yields are lower. at what point, does he have to -- he has delivered so far. but the concern yesterday was actually at some point he is going to have to do something so massive to convince markets that he means business at the balance sheet may take a real hit. james: i think there will
4:04 am
certainly extend the period of the purchases. they might increase the size of the purchases on a monthly basis. he might lower the discount rate. when he speaks, he obviously delivers. he's sure to deliver in december as well. i think the bulkl of the market reaction to what ecb is going to do at this conjunction is still to come. i think euro is going to go beyond parity versus the dollar. manus: that's a heck of a call. the magnitude. 11 straight hours of decline. we have seen this level of verbal intervention on the euro. the euro is critical part of the story. you are: parity. what are the ramifications of that -- you are calling parity. of 2016 is when we can expect it to hit. the ramifications are huge.
4:05 am
this changes the outlook for the fed, because it strengthens the dollar against a very important trading currency. it alsoed's mind, changes the situation for the bank of japan. will they do more easing of their own? i think yes. francine: we are tracking euro, talking,ems they start which is some kind of the european intervention, at 1.14. this graphic. ecb meeting yesterday. will the fed hike interest rates this year? if you look at what draghi is overpromising, it makes no sense for the fed to move. james: i think the reason for the fed to go is a financial stability reason. draghi's move will find financial conditions in the u.s. because it will make the dollar that little bit stronger, but interest-rate still on the zero bounce, still dangerous for
4:06 am
risk-taking behavior. so fast over the last year, and you want to deal with this problem early on. manus: i have a little bit of time to think about this overnight. what i would say is that china, we've got through perhaps the biggest double the sears so far with china. we do not know what we are going to get the next couple months. is there some kind of stability going into the end of the year? you get the bank of japan doing more easing. and you get your cap counterbalance. i think it opens the gate for the fed to take that initiative and get that winter and get it done before the end the year. james: i think not so much the ecb part of the argument, but i am entirely with the china part. the fed. the fed is china-dependent today. in fed didn't hike
4:07 am
september because of the ramifications for china. the fed just has to wait until china is stable enough for the global markets and the economy to stomach a fed hike. the china data, that opens the door. the margin draghi promising -- a bit more against the fed. on balance, i think december is still the most likely date, which is not consensus in the markets. manus: you arein goldman sachs. you're ok. it may give them a window but it depends on dollar strength, right? manus: the market was so long into -- weakens, if the euro the dollar rises. that may make it more difficult for the fed to ask. that argument is absolutely right if what you care about is inflation. but if it's financial stability
4:08 am
that you care about, if you're worried about the bad effects of keeping interest rates on zero balance, you need to stop that, the exchanges helps you with that. you need to go on interest rates. that is the key point. manus: let's talk about markets because we have seen some syndicate moves. italian two year bonds a into negative territory for the first time ever. we've seen that in germany. ping, yields are moving. the momentum he punched into these markets. how do you look at it from a cio perspective? we have had quite a rebound in the first 20 days of this months alone, haven't we? james: yeah. i quite like on a short-term basis china exposure right now. manus: brave call. james: absolutely. why? life is very unfair. manus, your china, you sneeze and i catch a cold.
4:09 am
when it comes to the policy response, you're the only one with a handkerchief in the room. china slowdown has caused a knock on slow down across the global economy and we are seeing the ramifications of that in the team -- in the pmi data. caning market, gdp, we discuss how much -- but really and within the bounds of reality, too. china all of a sudden looks like a bastion of -- bastion of stability. wow, the world has changed in four weeks. he is staying with us. manus: let's take a look at what else is on our radar. microsoft shares rose to a 15 tradingh in extended after a beat estimates and first corning of a sprintnet income 4.62 billion. pr ceo focused on

manus: welcome back to "the pulse" l ive on bloomberg tv, radio, streaming on, your tablet and are from. atectrolux, third quarter be estimates. it expects appliance market in the u.s. to beat. very welcome to "the pulse."
4:14 am
when a look at the guidance you have given to the market, your upping global expectations for the u.s. flat in europe. you are warning on all of those emerging markets you are in. --question to you is this how robust is your 2016 outlook when you really see so much uncertainty in front of you in these emerging markets? >> yes. not actually given out 2016 expectations for market demand by region. but to your point, in general it is the opposite of what everybody was talking about a few years ago. right now the strength in demand for appliances is primarily in the large, developed markets. so, western europe, north america, australasia and the weakness, of course, is in those macro economic environments that are having difficulty like brazil, russia, china. so, it is actually the inverse of that now. when does results on around?
4:15 am
it does not look like a turns around soon to us. russia, they have low visibility in terms of what is happening there. china probably turns back sooner. theis not down as much as others and probably comes back sooner. but it is a different picture than a few years ago, as you know. manus: when i was reading through the various one-liners we printed on your report, what struck me was this -- the ecb is telling us that bank lending is getting better, things are getting better. we have more q.e. on the way. the consumer is not paying as much in oil prices. why am i not seeing a stronger read in terms of europe here in the lines in your report? >> so, that is a good question. the reason why you cannot see it is you have to separate western europe from eastern europe. so, when you look at total europe, it's trading flat and we are expecting 1% to 2%. western europe is up 5%, which
4:16 am
is very strong. in eastern europe is down 15%. so, that is why you do not see it when you look at total europe, but western europe is up quite a bit. manus: what is a chance of raising prices? if we look at the core of europe, things are better. everybody else has disinflation all over i t. >> we are in that same boat. appliances is still a deflationary market in western europe, in europe in total. so, i think, you know, it is coming off a 2006 peak down 20%. so, although there has been good improvement recently, in the last six of several quarters, we probably need another year or so before you get the asset utilization back to the point where you will not be in a deflationary market. manus: so, let's get to the big elephant in the room, then. you're trying to get g.e.
4:17 am
electronics and get this deal done before the end of the year. said you you -- you are prepared to sell certain assets to get this deal done. you have got to try to help me here. what are the assets? give us some indication of what is up for grabs to get the deal done. are in thee, we middle of litigation and remedy settlements with the department of justice. cannot answer i that question specifically, but we are in fact pursuing parallel paths. we are preparing to go to trial in november and to, we're quite confident that we will be successful on the merits of the case. at the same time, there is an opportunity to settle this thing with the doj out of court. where pursuing that passes well. so, we're confident we will get this deal done. exactly how it gets done --
4:18 am
manus: let me ask. i understand the restrictions. $1 billion you're prepared to sell? is it $1.5 billion? what size of revenue are you prepared to give away to get that size and scale that you need in the united states of america? >> what we're doing as we are talking to the doj about a settlement and the best assures that address the -- dives titures that address challenges they raced with their objection. that is a settlement offer we have on the table. that: the volkswagen saga theave been reporting on, issues raised at volkswagen have been about honesty, integrity, product, marketing, messaging. i'm curious, have you started an audit at electrolux? ar eyou looking at what you are
4:19 am
telling the consumer about your product? what has the volkswagen experience evoked for you as a ceo? you taking any actions internally as a result of the volkswagen debacle? have been andy continue to make sure that what we are reporting and what we are saying is correct. situation,lkswagen of course, i would guess that every manufacture, including us, is making sure that what they have out there can be supported 100%. of course, we are ensuring, but we have not found any situations there. the other thing we have in our industry is it is a little bit self policing because all of the competitors check all your claims. it's hard to be off for too long. of course, we are paying attention, of course we are ensuring that what we have and what we are communicating can be 100% substantiated.

4:26 am
your perspective in terms of the refugee crisis amid economics perspective? this is very complicated. but i think the big point we should not lose sight of is that this is a great economic opportunity for europe. what's one of the big challenges europe faces? it's the aging of the population, the shaking of the workforce. francine: as long as you can integrate them properly. james: 3/4 say will change society. of course it will change society. look at the united states, a rapidly changing society. the most successful society and economy in the world. manus: thank you very much. james is going to stay with us. we get into tech after the break. it is super thursday. francine: we had amazon, microsoft, google shares surging atter earnings need -- be expectations.

4:46 am
one, they could lose revenues based on what volkswagen sales do. and a lot of revenue comes in from corporate tax as well as land tax. two, if there are playoffs, they'll a, have to spend more for unemployment benefits, but b, they will have less receipts on the employee side of things. you take a look at a couple of these towns. there are three towns that are almost volkswagen central. 125,000, there they have about 60,000 employees in the town. million is trimming 19 and budget projects from an ice skating rink to building new roads. then you go down to the south and the very. an audio town -- in bavaria. they have got 40,000 employees that work at the audi factory. that could be affected. other towns as well affected. when you take a look at the numbers of employees that just
4:47 am
work on diesel engines, it is 75,000. they say, and this is from the label ministry, they say they don't expect job losses just yet. number wee time, the are getting is coming from the german economic research institute is a 3 billion euro shortfall based on tax receipts, and part of that is based on fewer cars being sold and potentially some flails -- some playoffs. -- layoffs. manus: let's talk about the proposition so far. we are waiting for exact details on how volkswagen is going to fix this. i have read everything from they are going to have pop-up mechanic shops. they are going to have to implement a program on a global basis. are we any further on in terms of the infrastructure that is going to be needed and the cost associated with that for volkswagen? hans: no. in some ways, we are further behind than where we thought we were a couple weeks ago. a couple weeks ago we thought
4:48 am
they could have a potential software fix for the 2 liter eng ine. it turns out you are going to have to reengineer them as new hardware. now volkswagen, this is what they announced yesterday they are going to look at another engines toatch of see whether or not there were software installed on them that could override or potentially affect performance or emissions readings. in some ways, volkswagen needs to get to the bottom and the depths of the scandal before they can come up with an accurate cost. they've always said the initial $6 billion they set aside a couple weeks ago is not going to be enough. guys? manus: thank you very much. hans nichols in berlin. francine: up next, growing in all categories. we will hear from -- a ceo and see who's losing in the battle of luxury brands. ♪

signaling thaty they will re-examine at the next meeting. when they really want to drive a point they use very particular language and they did. it is a bit of a double-edged sword. failure to deliver can create disappointed on the markets. generally, he has a good track record of not under delivering. it was a strong record. more qe is coming. and it opened the door to a rate cut, which is aggressive. francine: we have a great chart. if you speak to officials like we do on a regular basis, they never say they are targeting the euro, which is the only thing qe
5:06 am
can move on. it seems like every time it goes above 1.14, one of the councilmembers tries to talk it back. antonio: if you look at the , it has moved one by 9%. that is the one that worries them for real. that is the one that will get the inflation rate down. exports.urt their net they are naturally concerned. that is more of a bellwether. i think once they are heading above 1.15 or toward 1.2 zero, that is a reason for concern. , i look at all of the festivities yesterday with
5:07 am
the 3.8 standard deviation move and it still comes back to the real economy. what will get the european real economy going? antonio: that is the good question. monetary policy can help and it is helping. pmi became reasonably strong. the way monetary policy is helping is by putting money in the pockets of household firms. mortgages are posting close to zero. that is money that goes to the pocket. tom: lincoln the equity call to europe and what we witnessed -- link in the equity call to europe and what we witnessed yesterday? antonio: clearly, there is more
5:08 am
qe with the data we have seen in pmi's supports that. one has to distinguish by sectors, but for the euro more broadly, there is clearly upside. i don't know if it plays out in the united states, but the markets are a check and balance of what a politician can do. the fact that these yields keep on going down, the italian two-year yield touched negative yesterday. there is a concern that it does not put enough pressure on politicians to deliver. tom: i totally agree that the is that thee politicians can delay. francine: how much does that were you? that it will have to come through painful structural reforms.
5:09 am
this is clearly a concern. and'smeeting, mr. draghi sayingying -- ends with -- state public that is very high, growth is low, inflation is low. favorable is under monetary conditions, but long-term, there is a key condition. when the next shock comes, there will not be policy space to deal with it. francine: you say that the next shock will come. are we talking six months down the line and where will it come from? is it banking? is it yields? antonio: for now, not to be overly pessimistic, but domestic demand continues to drive the markets, it is net exports, and
5:10 am
it is china where there is a worry. we saw the data in china disappointing. tom: did barclays change their euro call yesterday? a number of houses notched down. antonio: we have been actually quite aggressive precisely on this call. we expect the ecb to do more before year end. by year end, we have the eurozone moving toward parity. by the next six months, we are at parity, actually. basically on the behavior of the ecb and the fed. tom: still quite a move. we have the markets adjusting to what we saw. on bloomberg radio this morning, daniel gergen will join us.

5:25 am
economies, difficult to understand whether it will be a net benefit or this is a concern because inflation is going nowhere. we have the output gap and high levels of unemployment. how do you insert the refugees? antonio: sure. the countries that are doing better offer a lot more scope. germany is key. they do have space. they are operating above potential gdp already. unemployment is over historical lows. they do have capacity. this has to be turned into an opportunity. the problem is if this is politically missed managed -- mismanaged. if you allow the populist parties to campaign against it, that hurt. tom: really to both of you, but let me start with you, antonio, which institution defines fair in europe?

that is a very good question. i would hope that the european commission would have a say in that. the heads of state should be the platform for that. finding an agreement. fairness is a subjective term. francine: it is angela merkel. angela merkel is trying to make this fair, i would argue. we will get back to antonio very shortly. tom: very good. coming up on republican politics, dr. ben carson and "all dueruz will join respect" this evening. stay with us. ♪

response was necessary to deal with the low inflation. quickly as a final question out of left field, how will the swiss national bank have to adapt to what we saw yesterday from the ecb? antonio: that is an important with really critical implications no doubt. it will very much depend on the negative to positive rates. if the ecb work to pull the trigger of a negative deposit rate, you will see real action and that will clearly get the currency going. tom: thank you so much. greatly appreciated. thisll continue here in next hour of "surveillance." alan ruskin will join us in the next hour. a bombshell from mario draghi. vonnie quinn and tom keene in new york. london. lacqua in
