part. the fed is taking a longer view in terms of inflation. manus: our next guest says the central banks are right to be restrained. he is the global head of being priebus strategy. our last guest said it was a dovish statement. i like the statement that it was a soft backpedal. they are worried. >> which central bankers do, if the markets are jittery, they say calming things. what we had is another poor performance from stock markets. is, is this is a
2:10 am
signal for a slowdown or just what you would expect at the start of a tightening cycle? all financial assets reprice because the discount rate is going up? why would that be unusual? that is perfectly reasonable. veryfore the price is sensitive. >> it has been a global story. the way the u.s. story has influenced all kinds of asset classes. we are seeing some of that unwind. >> that is absolutely right. that is why the selloff can be so severe. they have spent the last number of years pumping cash into the

system. are to take a complacent they have been pumped up. the question for the fed, if that is going on, it may still affect the economy. doingthe markets might be the job for them. >> they have changed their view from three to two. the worst month for stocks according to the papers.

too concerned about. aboute through the story sovereign yields. there has been a flight to quality. the whole world is flocking to bonds. rotation outbeen a of risky assets. last five years when rates have been locked down at zero, that has been the only story. there is a sector rotation. the idea that rates might be on the move, dynamically, means this is not the only game in town. if i may. preparedre is one i earlier. >> this is the real yield. we have had aad collapse in nominal bond yields. movedal yield has not
2:14 am
that much. that is because yes, the market is worried. it is worried about inflation. oil is going down. the real yield is still well above what it has been since the end of the taper. in 2013.at is back you saw how low those real yields went in 2012. since then, we had the taper tantrum. we came back down. that has not yet altered. the worry for me is the market goes, you know what? we the fed would be on course. the bond market can change but the market, they

warning of a slowdown in 2016. h&m missed analyst estimates. pretaxpresta missed4 -- estimates -- unseasonably mild weather in germany also contributed to the weaker profit performance. bloomberg business splash. manus: with oil hovering around a 12 year low, let's speak exclusively to the ceo of one of the owners of an oil supertanker. welcome to bloomberg. great to have you with us. tell us about your numbers. you are one of the few people we get to speak to that say, i love cheap oil. >> it is absolutely true. essentially we sell freight as a
2:21 am
commodity. we sell oil in the largest units. the way we do it, negotiating a lump sum. the cost of the fuel in moving the cargo from the loading pointed to the discharge point is our cost. as that cost has fallen, we have been able to net back to a better net result. anna: you have achieved your highest quarterly cents 2008. oil prices helps your business. is one of your risks that we see the volume fouled away? if the oil majors start to cut back on the amount they are shipping, that it would undermine the business? >> yes. undoubtedly, that is absolutely right. at the moment, we are not seeing that. surprise, despite all the addictions. when you make oil cheaper, it gets used more. oil became an alternative asset
2:22 am
class during the low interest rates and qe. it drove oil to $100 a barrel when there was low demand. that was very destructive for our business. when quantitative easing ended, oil price fell in 2014. demand went up. it went back to its right position. that was really important for us. it drove demand significantly. the iea said there would be no material impact as a result of the price fall. anna: it does --'s demand close to what gets shipped? >> sometimes you are close to a field or you move it by pipeline. they predicted that 900,000 barrels a day would be consumed additionally. they ended up completing the number at 1.6 billion barrels a day of growth. they revised the figure six
2:23 am
times. the prediction this year, oil prices come off another 30% in the last two or three weeks and they have not affected that in. they are predicting 1.2 million barrels of growth for this year and we think it is higher. anus: that gives us independent assessment of the demand side in terms of the price. help us with the other story. storeds oil being offshore. we heard it in the iranian story. what demand have you seen for that? help us with that story. in a number comes of different parts. completely story is separate. this is about sanctions. they have a fleet of about 40 seat partakers -- supertankers. have alwaysips, 17
2:24 am
been in service. a number of countries are not covered by sanctions. china, japan, south korea, have been able to trade for oil. 17 of the ships have been active. the rest have been in storage. that is the iranian story. for our story, a year ago, the talk was how you could do a carry trade just by buying the oil, and then closing out on the paper trade when your time came. a lot of people took ships during that time to read 30-40 ships were taken with the anticipation be read by the time they got them, the structure had fallen out. the ships never went into storage. the story of the year has been all ships move slowly at the moment. there is a hugely just ask problem. oil is everywhere. people want it off the field so they can carry on producing. they seal the ships relatively speaking slowly. 8-90% slower than in a normal
2:25 am
market. oftenhey arrive, they find port congestion. that is unusual for oil. we might find in china and the middle east, we are waiting a week at ports. that is settling down the volume is. getting the space to unload. manus: going back to the demand equation, we have been told. history is china will pick up and excess supply. they will store in tough times. where does that buying come through? they are going to get it wrong again? who is buying? parks everywhere. europe went up with 300,000 barrels of daily consumption. at this price, people always said it was linked to gdp. it is not. it is linked to price. it is a consumer product.
2:26 am
people drive more. that has been the impact in europe and the u.s.. china has been important. it is not economic opportunism. they are playing catch-up, not having enough storage in the system for the amount of demand growth they have had. that is a dangerous situation. anna: briefly, weight in on where you think the oil price go. taxi drivers are never short of an opinion. where do you think oil will go? -- i think the sensible view is, there was always a risk but it cannot he more than a few dollars. muchntage falls cannot get greater when you are this low. the risk must be to the upside to read you could regain $10 in no time. it is not a threat to our business unless we were to break out.
