is happening with our first word headlines. vonnie quinn has more. vonnie: thank you. the start of voting is 17 days away. paul's are tightening. front-runners hug the spotlight in the debate. areles -- poles tightening. is raising concerns about the texas senators eligibility. trump: the democrats are going to bring a lawsuit. you have to have certainty. you cannot have a question. i can't agree with you. you cannot have a question. vonnie: ted cruz was born in canada. trump is pushing the issue because they are now and net. --neck and neck. the government wants to resume whether taxpayers will get fees based on mining companies.
chicago activists are calling for a protest starting today after the release of another video showing a fatal shooting by police. the video was released after a court order. it shows a black teenager suspected of a carjacking in 2013. -- it shows a white office or tiny black teenager. officerows a white shooting a black teenager. global news 24 hours a day, powered by our 2500 journalists and 150 news bureaus around the world. betty: thank you. let's get to the markets. crude is tanking again. hitting a 12 year low. the dow is down 400 points. it might be time to make a new call. goldman sachs said they are going for a market rally. jeff curry is saying the key thing for 2016 will be fundamental adjustments that can
re-ballot markets to create the birth of a bull market that we still see happening in late 2016. for a closer look at where oil is heading, i want to bring in a critic of oil predictions, daniel yergin. of thed -- the chairman ihs research. join me from washington. are you a critic? think it is difficult because people are trying to say what will happen to the chinese economy? how much oil will be ran put into the market? -- how much oil put into the market? right now, you know, it is striking. we are in an oil price range. that is where the great takeoff
of china and the emerging markets were heard we back to 2003. betty: we are. we are wondering will we experience 2003 all over again? daniel: we are close to it in terms of oil price. people know, they follow the thist -- they knew that friday the ran would get -- irna would get certified. they are going in the context of this global market panic. betty: it does seem like a panic. have known about this is rainy and news for quite some time. i understand it is becoming a reality. daniel: it has been clear that this is going to happen. the irani and government wanted it to get done more quickly. the united states government
wants them to do well. the united states was cooperating. it does mean that it is coming into a market of greater weakness. it was thinking it would happen in march or april. betty: if i can read into what you are saying, you think what we are seeing is prompted by irani and supply. daniel: yes, and china. there are two debates going on. number one is that they are making policy mistakes. the other is that this is signaling fundamental weakness. the markets are voting that this is fundamental weakness. you have a weaker demand outlook. although, we're looking at 1.2 million barrels a day in demand growth. 2014, butgher than lower than 2015. it is the downside for china. by the way, is the u.s. in vulnerable to this? betty: do you think we are
vulnerable to this? daniel: yes. the shocks contagion that come from problems of debts and emerging markets, a weikel -- a weaker global market and trade. there is one other factor which is the strength of the dollar. you get to the inverse movement between the dollar and oil prices. particularly, at times of change. that is another factor hammering oil prices. betty: there are a lot of factors. thent to go further into goldman sachs report. it is getting a lot of headlines. daniel: a while ago they said $20. it is interesting. betty: i agree. it sounds like they are walking backwards on that. on that headline that came out saying -- now, they are that is an outline number. we are not saying it will go
down to $20. daniel: the thing about the witness of oil prices is that it weighs on the overall stock market. we have had the view for some time that we will see a rebalancing in the oil market in the second half of the year, because basically, not just the united states but around the world oil companies are slamming the brakes in terms of investment. and your notws having new supplies come in, then you get a market that does not rebalance in 2016 or 2017. betty: it does not? daniel: it does rebalance, because it is cutting projects. they're being postponed, delayed or canceled. betty: that is what goldman sachs is saying. once you hit oil and the $20 range you will see a rebound. they believe the shale boom in the united states will reverse.
quality demand continues to stay at these levels, that is where you'll see prices rebound. they are hoping it will hit $40. daniel: actually, at this point we are using a price for the average of the year in the midrange 40's. --re are certainties uncertainties about china. one thing we are watching is what happens with u.s. production. united states production is down half a million barrels per day. we certainly think it will progress over the next several months. producers, their access to money, simply the pain they are under -- we will see the united states down about one million barrels per day. that might happen around the second quarter. betty: we keep piling up the oil. we are at the top of storage tanks. daniel: yes.
you point to something that is a critical factor. if we go back to 1998 -- people are saying $10 per barrel. that is when you run out of storage. we have been watching our numbers carefully. we followed shipping numbers. we do not think we are at the point of running out of storage. if we did, then you would see much lower prices. when you do not have any place to put the oil, it is cheap very cheap. it has somewhere to go. how far off would you give us before we do fill them up? is that at this point we do not believe we will run out of storage. aerial -- area does not hold true. if the world economy was much weaker, and demand was much weaker, then problems are greater. the other thing that complicates
the picture, in terms of geopolitics in the gulf region, between saudi arabia and you ran ran, there is such an intense rivalry. these people are in a proxy war. they see very little side that gulf countries want to sit down and make room for irna, right now. betty: we also have the peripheral oil producers in europe. they are getting caught in the instance of -- middle of this. norway and their economy. we look at how quickly and methodically their currency has been tracking. it has basically been in line with where crude has gone. as the price of oil has gone norwegian currency. an official came out and said we are in a crisis mode.
our currency is devalued. we are in an emergency situation. how does that play out? daniel: that is not only in norway, canada, australia, the emerging markets, they are in a currency crisis. this is a real shock for their economy. that is a reverberation running through the whole world economy. that werussia saying were charging $82 per barrel. now, maybe they should plan on $30 per barrel. half of their budget comes from oil. there are a lot of countries that will be hit. i think that we will probably --ounter surprises somewhere, it often happens, you will see it were something comes from left peeled -- field where people do not expected. you have to keep your radar up. betty: you have to be prepared. before i go, you mentioned the
gulf countries. nothing happens that saudi arabia. i am curious with the saudi arabia and ipo, you think given the timing, is this saudi arabia signaling to the world that oil prices will be look -- lower? daniel: i think it has to do with the drive of the crowned prince wanting to reform the economy. they have looked at other economies in seeing that this is a way to raise money. i think there is a shift in view , which was originally that we need to save oil for our grandchildren. the view now is that maybe we need to modify faster. betty: hedge our bets a little bit. thank you for joining me. dan yergin. let's also check in on the equity market. in particular, the dow which has just plunged 400 points. now, coming off a low.
♪ betty: good morning and welcome to "bloomberg markets." the markets we are closely following. i want to go to the market desk with julie hyman. julie: energy, i want to get to that. i want to start broad and look at what we are seeing. forave not hit these lows an early session. we have a long holiday weekend. short or longw investors want to beef. we are seeing oil selloff.
thiscontinued selloff morning. it is below $30 per barrel. it is down 5.5%. we see money flowing into treasuries. that is characteristic of the risk option. below 2%.touch now, it is below 2%. ares a very big move we seeing in the 10 year. in terms of individual stocks, the oil majors are selling off, not the most, but we are seeking death scene big declines. the energy group is the worst performer. but we are seeing big declines. the energy group is the worst performer. the strategy to migrate away from chips for pcs and server processors, that has had some success. now, the companies are talking about slowing growth.
apple is declining, microsoft is declining. citigroup and wells fargo both came out with earnings that beat estimates. revenue was higher for wells fargo. citigroup saw increases with revenue with asset sales. those shares are lower as well. jpmorgan is getting tracked down. so, the earnings season, that for some investors they were looking to come in and help matters. i believe adam parker from morgan stanley said earnings season should help. it is still on the very beginning. it is not helping. betty: not yet. it is overshadowed by the selling. julie hyman at the market desk. is a big day for banks. the second worst decline are on the s&p. we will break down those numbers from wells fargo and citigroup. ♪
citigroup and wells fargo are off and early trade after they beat earnings estimates this morning. onigroup revenue was higher the scale of more unwanted assets. however, wells fargo jumped ahead of citigroup to make it to the nation's third largest lender by assets value. citigroup continues to split. to break this down, i want to bring in christine harper. our executive editor for finance. it is hard to read much into this, given the broad-based selloff. you know, were investors cheered by what they saw? christine: what i would read is that citigroup was hurt more than wells fargo. relative play a that people are not happy with citigroup. we have a story out saying that people view the revenue as soft.
they like that it is up, but when you dig down, some of it is just from selling assets. that is not really moving forward in a way that they will be able to repeat. another thing, to the point of how city has fallen behind wells fargo. citigroup is shrinking in business. the valuation that the market is putting on what they are doing is very low. they are trading at a faction -- fraction of book value. investors are looking at what they have and saying it is not worth what they say it is worth. wells fargo is growing. even though wells fargo is facing a challenging environment , they are growing in revenue. they are able to keep cost. they have a future that is more positive from investor's point of view. with citigroup it is shrinking. for a long time, people have been helping that they could get expensive under control -- expenses under control. betty: do they need to do more
with expenses? christine: i think the general view is that everybody needs to be better with expenses. there have been a number of announcements at job cuts at morgan stanley. obviously other banks have been aggressive. we have reported that goldman sachs, which has been a leader in trading, is looking at cutting off their trading business. more and more likely, i will say and groups like citigroup, others that have a lower evaluation as opposed to wells fargo, they are under more pressure to show their investors that they are getting a grip on expenses. they will improve their return on equity. that is more for citigroup than others. betty: you mentioned wells fargo has a better outlook, is that part of the fed rate hike cycle? christine: partially. they are also very u.s. centric,
they have a very contained business. they are a commercial lender. it is not a big investment banker. things like wild swing in the market -- swings in the market do not impact them as much. so, wells fargo is benefiting in some sense from the fact that they are more streamlined. citigroup is struggling from the fact that they do semi-things. you.: thank christine harper, our executive editor of finance. as we go to the break, we will look at how treasuries are trading. they are the safe haven at this point. the yield is coming down for the 10 year. ♪
session the dow is down 350 points. if we can stay on this track of decline, we will see the biggest loss in the dow since february of 2009. let's turn to oil, because that is what is driving the losses. you can see nymex crude below the $30 per barrel level. you heard dan yergin say that is partially due to iranian oil supply hitting the market. crude is trying to post -- is going to post the third straight month of decline. we putting this in context. it does not look good. let's get first word news with vonnie quinn. vonnie: thank you. rescuers are searching for 12 after two marine helicopters collided near hawaii. they went down last night, two miles off the north shore of a wahoo. --oahu.
the coast guard is helping with the search. in jakarta today, there is grief and defiance. hundreds chanted and saying during a vigil after yesterday's attack. there is an explosion killing two people and a busy shopping area. demonstrators say they will not given to extremists. -- give in to extremists. jeb bush received an endorsement by lindsey graham. astronauts, including britain's first space walker are working to restore full power to the international space station. there was an electronic box that failed. the spacewalkers will make the switch in darkness to prevent electricity to flow through the
solar power system and shock them. global news 24 hours a day, powered by our 2500 journalists and 150 news bureaus around the world. betty: thank you. on the campaign trail, candidates have been sounding the alarm warning of a trade war between china and the u.s.. deallandmark trade congress is now considering. david set down with the trade representative and ask them what it means for trade relations. david: what is the relationship like today? when you're talking to your counterpart in china? >> we have a good dialogue. they raised concerns about u.s. policy, we raise concerns about china. right now, there is an amount of overcapacity in steel and aluminum, largely coming from china. it is having a serious impact. over a year ago, we launched a
dialogue about how to deal capacity. because, they are doing with the problem from their own perspective. we will press them to make those kinds of changes to move towards more market determined policies. to move towards domestic growth, rather than export led growth. these are all policies that the trade department is engaged with china to help encourage them to reform their economy. we think it will create more balanced growth for them. and a better relationship for us. david: the first blueprints of the deal predate you. china is not in disagreement. is that a point to you that they were not brought in in the beginning? mike: there were 12 countries willing and eager to sign up to a high level agreement. they have strong intellectual property rights.
it puts disciplines on state enterprise for the first time in any agreement. it to make sure the internet stays open and free. -- it wants to make sure the internet stays open and free. they will sign up for that. countries will do that as well. we do not want to compromise our standards. the goal was to create rules of the road for the region. they will reflect our interests and values. david: is there a possibility china could join the agreement? it is intended to be an open platform that companies can join. if they are willing to meet the standards, and all full of us agree, and we go through the approval process -- our focus with china right now is on bilateral investment. it is similar to the investment chapter, and it is a good test
to see if they could sign up for high standards. it will help them fundamentally improve the relationship between the government and the economy. taiwan,n indonesia and how do you expect -- how do you accept the readiness of a country? mike: we have an ongoing dialogue with the countries. now that it is public, they can analyze it for themselves. identify where the gaps are. we have a conversation with them about the gaps. whether they can bridge the gaps. they have other outstanding issues in the trade relationship to determine readiness. so, some will be closer than others. right now, our focus is on readiness passed between the 12 of us. that is our priority. that was ambassador mike froman, the u.s. trade representative. david joins us with this. david, where are we with the
approval process by congress? david: we are in the domestic states. lawmakers are looking at this. paul ryan had a message a week ago. he is still working to the documents. there are nearly 30 chapters. there is a lot. congress has 90 days to vote for or against this. once that happens it moves into ratification. i asked him when you look at how different it is to ratify this agreement, is it difficult in the u.s.? betty: there's a lot of disagreement about jobs. david: when people think about nafta and what happened after the deal was passed, you can ask what came first the chicken or the big? -- egg? people worry about that. is there enough intellectual property protection. you have those concerns, then you have lawmakers with specific concerns. for some lawmakers in the south tobacco is a big issue.
when you have such a huge document and sony cutouts, there are people who will disagreement -- disagree with specific elements. betty: this is part of the president's political equity. he thinks this is a chance for the united states to lead. david: absolutely. in the state of the union he called for congress to pass this. he used that language. saying let's lead through trade. that is novel to me. i think he state so much on trade. he has the traveling back-and-forth to asia. as it became very clear, i think anybody watching the speech, there is not a lot of time left in the administration. there is the appetite for these deals, but if they have time is an open question. betty: who else might join? david: china is not, south korea is in the wings. costa rica as well.
we'll see what happens. i asked him, i said seeing and what is happening in europe and china with the political climate, did he feel lucky the deal was going into negotiation? he said yes. it is an ideal time. betty: david, thank you so much. we will be back in a few moments. let's look at how some other markets are trading. including, how currency markets are trading. the dollar is taking a big dip after resale sales numbers -- retail sales numbers. they are dipping right before. we are climbing back up in the u.s. currency. we will be back. ♪
this is "bloomberg markets." let's go to europe where mark barton is seen stocks fall to the lowest level in more than a year. that is following what happened in asia and europe. is like a domino effect. mark: we were down 3.4%. this is the most significant action of the day. check this out. ,ooking at the 12 month chart because, from there to their -- that is -20%. betty: i can read this. best -20%. not the it is a bear market. marketse, china's bear happened from behind in december. hours happened from the record high in april. money moving into a fixed point. it has not been a good 2016.

2016. it will be monday in geneva. we will be finding out in 2016 will be a rough year for the luxury watch industry as it was in 2015. i have not worn a watch since i was eight years old. betty: really? that makes sense. you do everything differently. i love my watches. anyway, i am looking forward to that. ,or a look at the u.s. market abigail doolittle has the latest. live from the nasdaq are we have seen the nasdaq taking it on the chin. abigail: that is correct. a big down day in the u.s.. -- u.s. they are dealing with the biotech. taking a look there, we have been reporting on the bear market index for more than a week. island is -- big
is below estimates. we are getting a bit of a negative tone. along with the big tech plunging shares today. they are dropping to the lowest level since october of 2014 after the company posted a mixed fourth quarter on pc demand. the company is saying the new year is off to a difficult start, especially relative to china. this makes it a negative tone for big tech. apple -- this is their worst point decline. now, that is another big tech name dealing with the news out of china. also, there is news that the company may go $8 billion in back taxes. $8 billion ine
back taxes in europe. the timing of this news, considering that the stock is down 20% since early november, is not great for apple shareholders. betty: indeed. a lot of the shareholders are nervous. thank you. let's check in on other averages. let's check in on the dow and s&p. the dow recently hit a low. we are coming off slightly off of our low of the session. pace fornp we are on our biggest month of decline since may of 2010. the biggest loss since february of 2009. we have already lost 1400 points on the dow. that is just the first part of the year. as chinese stocks enter a bear market, what will this mean for u.s. equities? howard marks talked with us and gives his 47 year career perspective on the big swing and
what he calls a manic-depressive market. why investors need to have a reality in their vision. howard: the market is manic-depressive. it goes from seen on positive to seeing only negative. and from interpreting everly positive to interpreting everything negatively. -- from interpreting everything positively to everything negatively. >> help us make sense. the news out of china from the beginning of the year was not a big surprise. what is your take on china? howard: i think they have a serious problem. they have a serious set of challenges to convert from exports and construction stimulated by easy money to reserves. they need to moderate the growth rate. move to athey need to
free-flowing economy. have aone which will recession. that is like the rest of us. they have not had one for the last 20-30 years. it is a series problem. -- serious problem. is it easily mounted or serious disaster? people moved from the first to the second. psychology,market slipping back into a bear market, you and i can understand it is interesting to what is happening in china, but for retail markets it is complex. here's my question. we are set for another round of earning seasons, is analyst anything to go by? returns the surround? around? rns this howard: people are not able to say now, the market is 1% undervalued, maybe it needs to
get dramatically undervalued. that could mean it swings too far into the negative. thing, youis the have made a good living being a contrarian. take advantage of other people's fear. being fearful when others are greedy. how do you know when they are appropriately fearful, and when your pendulum is overshot to one side? howard: you have a sense. that is all i can say. be fearfulnough to when they are greedy, and greedy when they are fearful. you have to know what the market is doing and why. david: a lot of people's concerns over china are unjustified. know when they are overshooting the limits of justification. know --the key is to you have to know -- you have to
have a bedrock of reality. when you see an asset stock going like this. that is not enough. you have to know what it is worth. there is an intrinsic value. you cannot be an investor unless you understand intrinsic value. only if you know the intrinsic value, that is why you have to be a fundamental investor. andou do not have the time intellectual preparation to know these things, then you have to turn your money over to somebody who does. betty: that was oaktree chairman howard marks on bloomberg. he was given in -- giving perspective on the volatility in the market. still ahead on "bloomberg markets." stocks are declining, so did consumer spending. what is that mean for retailers? we have retail veteran steve

retail, overall, some of it falls on retailers. what is new in the market that will make you want to spend your money on something different. i just went to the show in las vegas. i was like a kid in a candy store. i could not believe that this was something this is something the business is redoing down the line. what is new? the problem for me. macy's is closing stores. where does it end for me? they are often trying to do it with the retail thing. macy's is driving it. betty: yes. shotn: why would you ever at amazing's without a discount coupon? -- -- shop at a macy's without a
