5:04 am
francine: this is the european market, so there is a little bit of pressure. we are trying to figure out what it means for the federal bank action and for a lot of stocks in europe. and the portuguese is the one that i am most interested in. i want to show you that because david cameron did finally put out his points to renegotiate. this was after the left-wingers tried to overthrow the government. tom: we will show a couple of important charts on the terminal there. let's go over to the bloomberg terminal. portugal is way back without the german heels. we have a long-term yields here of economic stability. the prices up 12%. the real news here is that we have come in with a week real has kept thet yields below where it was during the good times.

5:06 am
to ease, they have done six rate cuts so far. more to come. there is a big fiscal push and there is more to come. that thisi have seen can be a parallel to what the fed is doing. are we going to see a zero bound on interest rates? donald: that is not new. they have been on this for a long time. the economy has been no good this year, as everybody knows. at the age word summary of china is, economic reform is out and economic reef -- economic rescue is in. nickel, i gotk at this off the hd news flow this morning. how do you measure the commodity temperature within china? do you do it through data? were you looking at the
5:07 am
bloomberg terminal? [laughter] guess the politically correct answer is to look at the bloomberg terminal. andlook at commodity prices supply and demand factors. we look at the export-import factors. tom: will they continue disinflation with commodities? donald: it does not look good. it is important for people to distinguish between steel, copper and aluminum. within this, does this link into the finance and banking sector like we assume with oil now? does that go into their financial system or are commodities discrete because of the discrete government? donald: they are discrete in that sense. the big commodity producers are not profit maximizers.
5:08 am
they continue to produce and they don't watch market signals. they have a different agenda. that is why in steel it is so serious. francine: they have huge that debt. is it likely that we see a credit crunch? donald: we are already seeing the beginnings of something that is getting sinister, at least. it is getting worse. i don't believe this is going to end up as something that is systemic in china. francine: why? donald: because the state still has lots of maneuvering room, more so than the u.s. or europe or japan. how do you handle deflation risks? do, in they can and will some ways, exactly what the rest of the world is doing. they will push hard, and how
5:09 am
effective that will be, we don't know. it hasn't been that effective in my view in the rest of the world. currency,ok at the how does -- play into this? to their advantage given to the commodity implosion or a weak economy? a pipe dreamis not and the devaluation that occurred on august 11 had nothing to do with the imf. that issue has been put to bed, this is all about trade and the last thing i will say about this is that the euro is too strong for half of the country in euro land and now the dollar is too strong for the yuan. withwe will talk that donald straszheim. and coming up, david bloom. is an exceptionally
5:10 am

euro nearing a six-month high. a raise from the fed is looking likely. joining us from london is david bloom. it is great to have you on the program, as always. fed, you say we are going to see u.s. dollar weakness ahead. look, i going to tell me that you think they are going to raise rates? and thethree years ago euro is going down? really, they are going to cut rates? we know that is going to happen. francine: so why are we not going to see parity? is priced in. it
5:15 am
we are not that down in financial markets. oh, it is so obvious that the euro is going lower. we know that, that is why we have gone from 142 105. what about next year? it is all priced in. francine: whatever it takes. mario draghi it was in london, he showed up and said, whatever it takes. why can he not move the euro? you few keep pulling a rabbit out of a hat, eventually it gets boring. two whenne from 140 under five. now he is going to drive it down? no way. i think you will find out that the u.s. economy that is normalizing isn't as strong as you think it is. itre going to find out that
5:16 am
is savage, this tightening. these are obvious things that will raise rates. you see where the euro is the idea is 107, that david bloom is that the outlier. everyone else is looking for the euro. within that is the 10 year yields. saying with steve major that we will not see a fed rate increase in december? david: of course we will. we have been forecasting that for six months. we know they're going to raise rates in december. but once they said raises rates, we will go to 75 or maybe 1%. you will find out that the u.s. economy isn't -- tom: one of our themes is china.
5:17 am
soggy that oil may be this morning. is janet affected by the commodity disinflation and does that get you to a strong euro? i think you had a previous speaker on inflation and deflation at the next thing you're saying, everything is all right in the united states. we could find out that we are in the deflation world and that means we will not raise rates that high. everything affects the u.s. so we will let get the massive tightening. the tightening will be cutting rates. the ecb will be loosening freights. so we select one side loosening and a very dovish tightening. the dollar rail is over. david bloom in good form there.
5:18 am
actually, we talked about divergence. what is your killer play? if you think the market is pricing is in, what is the killer trade? david: some of the killer trades soundsrling, that interesting because we think it is going down because we have a referendum which is going to be harmful for sterling. and wehero is going up are having a reversal of sterling. that will be very bad for the u.k.. tom: thank you so much. that was david bloom with hsbc. donald straszheim, you have seen people go down in flames -- is this the time to be bold and make outlier calls? i think it is a matter of whether you are trying to find a limb to jump to work it out on.
5:19 am
me like there is a lot of issues in the global economy. every major economy in the world -- and i am not looking for that limb. francine: i like that. when of the things we have been trying to figure out, is that actually there is a concern that the fed could delay the hike in if they doch something in december and so they will have to hike much sooner. donald: maybe. they have been thinking about this for a long time. we all have. nobody knows, quite frankly, if they are going to raise or not. nobody knows what will happen in march or june. everybody has a perspective and the guy who you just had on here, he has a strong view that couldn't possibly be wrong. come on. tom: that is what we like on aloomberg surveillance,"

risen above 3000 pounds. the storm clouds were gathering. how did this affect his day-to-day life in the crucible of the 1930's when they were worried about the small matter of hitler in germany? how did the money thing fold into the day-to-day? david: he seemed to be able to come heart analyze -- to compartmentalize it. in the 1930's, the politics comes back into his life. he had to step back from politics to try and write and get money into keep the bank and. they-- bank at bay. as hitler rises, he has to spend more time on politics but he did takes like crazy. his books. he entertains at lunch and dinner. tom: let me ask you the top decision -- the tough decision. i say this with respect for his contributions at yalta and before that. was winston churchill an alcoholic? the amount of liquor consumed in the jurgen analysis. it is stunning. david: but everybody who worked

it was a blunder. it is mission misguided. i think he met a colossal mistake to have made this initiative -- an issue. to have promised this referendum by the end of 2017. it is not clear he is going to win it. the stakes are enormous, if he loses, it did does not just have tremendous contribution -- effects for britain. i think then scotland leaves. scotland is not stay in the united kingdom kingdoms. the stakes are colossal. francine: why did he get it so wrong in your eyes? did he not have enough confidence to say i can win the may elections without calling for our referendum? ambassador haass: he overpaid the price to keep party unity. the process of marginalizing itself by going to the extreme left under mr. corbyn. what's bizarre is what he is not worthrope is it.

pretty good. this government is immune from popular views. there is a lot of strategic cooperation going on between over terrorism. egypt's future is in doubt. this is a top-heavy government. they arrested one of the leading -- activists. it is an all or nothing political system. what worries me about egypt is whether at some point there is enough pushback against the government that you see growing amounts of instability. understand that he is not necessarily in control of his own government? that arrest came tangentially to his office. ambassador haass: i think he is control --- in control. you have things going on on the sinai that isis. arab world. of the there are elements beyond the capacity of this government to control. the government is politically brittle. that worries the israelis down the road. francine: talking about the
