1:01 am
let's get straight to the pound story. we have seen a great deal of volatility which we need to communicate to you. one month volatility getting a seven-week high. the panel itself hitting a three-week low. ,his is implied volatility bracing for the eu referendum which will take place on june 23. we have had a couple of polls over the weekend that seem to have put some moves into currency markets. 45% leave, 41% remain. poll, 41% believe, 41% remain. we have to be a bit careful of the polls were the field work was done during periods of school holidays. thought people who were younger and more affluent could be away during that period.
1:02 am
it doesn't change the fact that the currency markets have been reacting to these polls. let's move on to all risk radar. the nonfarm payrolls number the lowest in almost six years. we have got the malaysian ringgit surging the most in nine weeks. a move of more than 1% against the u.s. dollar. have the dollar against the chinese currency as well. jack lew is in china. 6.56 is where we are for the chinese yuan. dollar at the lowest it has since 2013 versus a basket of peers. we will talk about the conversations between the u.s. and china in a moment.
1:03 am
crude.saying macy's $60 it jumped 2.7%. stocks continue to move gently away from their loads. let's get our first look news. debate is heating up with the former mayor of london they are johnson -- london boris johnson. said there was something worryingly undemocratic about the eu. they both spoke to bbc. >> they have begun campaigning and tried to feed out to the british people a whole galaxy of inaccurate and frankly untrue information. is telly have not done
1:04 am
us what would be the position if we were to vote to leave. i think it would be chaotic and damaging and the people who would suffer the most would be the ordinary everyday man and woman in the street. lives arepects of our now controlled through the eu from brussels in a way that i think is anti-democratic. for me, this is a question of democracy. it is about public consent and explaining to people. the moment we don't have -- at the moment, we don't have any power to control our immigration. germany takes on an increasingly large role in the communicatet policies. the -- jack lew added that
1:05 am
china's economy is in a much better place than what it appears to be. robust andcrude is state-owned saudi aramco has raised prices to asia and the u.s.. prices could hit $60 per barrel. todayelieve the oil price -- i think $60 could happen but it will all depend on going forward. rosalind: hillary clinton has won puerto rico's democratic primary. few votes short of achieving the nomination, something she could achieve tomorrow when voters go to the polls. the chinese retail giant expected to announce later today that it is buying italian football club into a line.
1:06 am

1:07 am
of the issuesall around foreign exchange. anna: let's see him and times we can use it between now and june 23. manus: let's get out to david english. he has the asian market reaction. david: today is one of those days were the bond and currency markets are very much in focus. the picture across asia, much better when it comes down to this rally. japan still leaving the losses, down .7%. a better graphic that i think sums up better what we're seeing across the region. this is asia-pacific. you take japan out and things look much better.
1:08 am
they tend to do better than developed markets. shockingly low. it begs the question, is this trade still alive and kicking. answer, a resounding yes. emerging across markets in southeast asia. ,ustralian gold-mining stocks gold obviously leaving the game across the entire space. with that being said, double-digit percentage gains. just to show you how extreme these moves are. let me move on to currency. rupiah, have a look at this extreme move. againstn, the dollar
1:09 am
the indonesian currency. it is also reflective of the extreme moves we're seeing, especially across southeast asia , like the malaysian ringgit. let me just wrapped things up with a quick look at the bond markets. australia, 2.16%. david, thank you. as we have heard, markets have been hit by friday's nonfarm payrolls. it added a few is john's last month it almost six years. hadmberg economists surveyed 160,000 as we discussed on friday. the data all but eliminated the possibility that fed officials will raise interest rates this month, with futures pricing in the chance of a hike.
1:10 am
now doesn't only get above -- now don't get above 50% until december. simon french joins us on set. good morning to you. recalibrating at warp speed it seems. we had a quick read think of where we go this summer. simon: those had rebounded the previous week following comments from fed members, all pointing to a rate rise. the caveat to all of that was that the fed remains in data dependent mode. friday's data was sufficient, i think, certainly to put june off the table. july looks deeply uncertain, especially with the rising of a brexit vote, or the remain vote, the opportunity for a lot of turbulence. i think there is no real reason. think,a was, i
1:11 am
fascinating from the perspective that it came after the beige book data. increase in the amount of people who are part-time workers. simon, a very good morning to you. global bond markets are reaching record lows. the word is nervous. when i look at this, there are a lot of dollar traders who are very nervous. we were so ready for this june and july hike. if the dollar rally in tatters? surely, that is good news for the fed, because they were preoccupied by a strong dollar. you look at the u.s. dollar. in a way, it has been locked up following comments from fed members. it almost becomes
1:12 am
self-fulfilling in doing exactly the opposite. it will provide some relief to those people who are on the wrong side of that dollar trade, but i don't think it is the end upwards trajectory. it is the u.s. economy in the context of a world economy that remains weaker than the u.s.. underlying resilience rather than strength of the u.s. economy that i think will push the dollar higher. anna: janet yellen set to speak later today. what are we looking for?what can she tell us ? first, the information from fed officials and now this week data on the jobless front. what can she say to explain all of this? simon: i expected janet yellen
1:13 am
to look through friday's data and look through something that doesn't fit their core narrative. probably improving over the last 30 days. fly in thehe ointment was the nonfarm payroll numbers. i think she would still want to keep consistent with previous comments. just over 10 days ago about something being eminent. anna: even before the jobs report, the beige book was moderate. the language wasn't about an economy that was really inflating. simon: the challenge of the is on the was that it basis of rate rises in the u.s. economy. she rolled a long way back, trying to recalibrate expectations.
1:14 am
lews funny to hear jack talking about the chinese being sort of more transparent with their forward guidance. i think there are a lot of chinese commentators who would look with a raised eyebrow. we are going to talk a little bit more about china later on. the bloomberg sovereign bond index record low. japan is at a record low. how close are we? one more bad set of farm payrolls, how close are we to quantitative easing from the u.s. or a recession from the u.s.? are perhapsnk you searching the headlines at the moment. qed, we know when there is a developing consensus that we are reaching the extent of qe.
1:15 am
in those jockeys were qe is going and only the game in town, i think the u.s. is not going to add to -- there is a problem with lack of confidence in growth. if wek what we will see saw a response to a market payrolls,in nonfarm let's say july's are poor, we would get those noises we have heard from draghi, from janet yellen about the role of fiscal policy, they will just be ramped up a couple of notches. that will have to be the response. anna: simon, thank you. here are some highlights for your week ahead. fed chair janet yellen addresses the world affairs council of philadelphia. there are primaries tomorrow in
1:16 am
new jersey, new mexico, south dakota. thursday, ecb president mario draghi opens the brussels economic forum. we round off the week with german chancellor angela merkel speaking in berlin on the eu future. ,anus: up next on countdown jack lew says the pboc needs to be clearer. talk kick off in beijing.

1:19 am
manus: you are looking at a little bit of a gray skies line across pictorial harbor in hong kong. harbour. victoria let's talk about china's president, she jinping. he said the country and the u.s. should talk more often in order
1:20 am
to reduce tensions and build trust. being at the opening of the annual meeting of top officials of the world's two biggest economies, he went on to say that the pacific should not be a battlefield. tom mackenzie is at the talks. many positive messages from the president. tom: it was conciliatory words xim she jinping -- from jinping. obviously, there are some big economic issues that the u.s. and china want to address. the tension in the south china sea and some of their most heightened levels we have seen in many years. paying --changing president xi saying that peaceful development was key for him.
1:21 am
>> china and the u.s. need to increase communication and cooperation over the asia-pacific. the vast pacific should be a stage for inclusive cooperation, not an arena for competition. the tone of president xi jinping's speech will be welcomed by the u.s. and allies in the region. some close calls in may. chinese fighter jets came close to a u.s. surveillance plane. over the weekend, u.s. defense secretary ashton carter said that china risked erecting a great wall with the south china sea policies. they hope the focus will shift to some of the economic issues on the table. anna: that really underlines the u.s. priorities here, i suppose. we heard from jack lew about
1:22 am
what china needs to do in terms of communicating economic policy. tom: we had a fascinating conversation with the u.s. treasury secretary yesterday, laying out u.s. priorities during this talks. mitigation is key. he said that back in august, he was on location, and he picked up his phone to his chinese counterpart asking what happened with the depreciation of the renminbi. that shows the closed as the relationship to some degree. other priorities of the u.s. are opening chinese markets to u.s. firms who are very much closed off in areas like finance, telecoms, logistics. he wants some answers from the chinese as to the progress of the reform agenda. particularly concerned about overcapacity in industries like steel and aluminium. a distortedays that
1:23 am
global market would erode china's future growth potential. in thent some terrorists u.s. imposed on their steel exports remove. they also want the market economy status they think they owed. -- are that is some progress that the chinese are looking for. anna: tom mackenzie joining us from beijing. let's get simon french back into the conversation. lots of themes coming out of china this week. jack lew said the focus steeltedly will be on industry but also on the currency market. what are you expecting to be the take away from these meetings? simon: cooperation or attempted cooperation regarding the path of the u.s. dollar and the yuan.
1:24 am
what you are looking for is some guidance toward a strategy which markets can be confident on. you have the weakness of the yuan against a broader basket of currencies, but it doesn't always move the u.s. dollar. i think the key take away from this will be whether the political tensions in the south china sea can be put to one side , the issues of the steel side, and ifo one they can come up with something more workable. to reflectst want back on the chart that and has on her touchscreen and i have here. this is the basket of currencies we have. the market was hysterical in january when the renminbi moved.
1:25 am
there was this real sense of global concern. here we are. near that level, the lowest level since 2014, and there is no sense of panic or urgency or global concern. what has changed? simon: i think very little has fatigue with than current competitive devaluations going on. the people who will be most concerned by that chart, they will be sitting in tokyo, they will be sitting in frankfurt, they will be worried about the implications a week or -- a has, which is an export related recovery. goes againstan other baskets and maintain strength against the dollar, that just tightens the vices. anna: how weak or strong is it?
1:26 am
jack lew suggesting that the lack of communication last year led people to conclude that the chinese growth picture was actually weaker than it was. we had those moments of markets associated with china. of conclusivece data on the strength of the chinese economy led to speculation which isn't really matched by the underlying data regarding world trade volumes, that in termsnk of the underlying performance of the chinese economy, significantly weaker than what we got. but of course, there is big stimulus going into the economy. manus: we have a lot more to get through. simon french, chief economist at penn your gordon.

1:37 am
the sanctions have been lifted. they are aiming to lift that almost 5n quota up to million barrels per day over the next five years. that in itself is a huge regional tailwind. manus: talk to me about the share producers. -$60 per share the risk-report is shale comes back on board. is there a shift in the index? a shift in what we are seeing in the u.s.? that's exactly right. we have already seen some oil analyst saying now that oil is rrel, itat $50 per ba will test shale. will we see a lot of oil rigs come back online? the idea is with the new shale technology you can turn them off and on relatively quickly. we saw some signs of that last week.
1:38 am
oil rig data was up for only the second time this year, something like nine rigs added. we have morgan stanley analyst saying you should not look at prices to see if it's coming online. they say actually if you look at the most oil-rich areas in the the -- midland, texas, in odessa permian basin -- it's coming back online much faster which suggests the biggest producers are coming back online relatively quickly. manus: it's all about going under the skin of the headline numbers. tracy, thank you. tracy alloway for us in abu dhabi. let's get back to the eu referendum story. the pound has fallen to a three-week low as new polls suggest more britons favor leaving the european union. votersy found 45% of

would choose to leave and 41% would remain. another poll show the leave .ampaign ahead 43% to 41% the race has tightened spooking some investors who bet that the remaining camp what eventually win. meanwhile, the former british prime minister john major and former mayor of boris johnson have traded blows on the issue. they both spoke with andrew mott. is feedthey have done out to the british people a whole galaxy of an accurate and, frankly, untrue information. what they have not done is tell us what would be the position if we were to vote to leave. i think it would be chaotic and damaging. i think the people who would suffer most would see the ordinary, everyday man and woman on the street. invisibly, many aspects of
1:40 am
our life are now controlled from the eu -- from brussels -- and a way that i think is anti-democratic. coming to the second big charge against us, that we are talking too much about immigration and all of that, this is a push of democracy, about public consent, that weng to people have no power. let's bring back in our guest, simon french. you look at these polls day by day on the markets move. do these polls convince you of a different outcome? are you looking at the polls from a few weeks ago that had the remaining camp ahead? can you just not say it? aren: the recent polls driving the pound on a daily basis. it's almost the single factor of short-term volatility.
1:41 am
outcome, i the final think there are two factors that will not be playing out in any of these opinion polls that we need to look at -- the likelihood of turnout among younger voters who are much more but we're also looking for indications that in the last couple of weeks the small conservative british voters, on mainstream and social media who do not make a lot of noise but who are inherently anti-big change in the u.k. economy, we saw this with the scottish referendum and the 2015 general election. we do not sense the revolutionary mood is really out there. see indications that they started to swing back to the status quote which, in this case, is remain. the one thing the bank of england and all of us are trying to do is to define how much of first quarter and second quarter growth is expected to drop.
1:42 am
a lot of people are trying to work out how much of the slowdown is a global story, how much is supposed to do with brexit? these are some of the weakest numbers in three years. one in three businesses believe .hat brexit simon: brexit is a side issue with pmi projections into q2. and hasreally peaked been declining ever since. there are a number of factors driving slower growth in the u.k. and its continuing to embark on the most aggressive fiscal consolidation anywhere in the g7 looking to balance its budget from a current deficit of more than 4% of gdp. you also have a series of policy initiatives in the u.k. designed to increase the burden on
1:43 am
employers to fund some of the government priorities on apprenticeships, low pay elements through the national living wage, and you are also seeing in the housing market specific taxation measures which has been a key driver with the wealth affected and transactions into that sector. they are all cooling. story, in that context, is a sideshow. anna: looking at some of the charts this morning, it is something that stands out. the other pmi is bouncing a little bit but construction pmi has been very negative throughout 2016 so far. after june results 23, what happens then? simon: looking specifically at construction, that will be the one to bounce should we get a remain vote.
1:44 am
the commercial real estate sector has been very weak. weighedwhere brexit has on sentiment. you see that in the commercial development and the pmi, therefore there is some pent-up capacity with people just deferring programs and projects until after the 23rd of june. you expect those to come through in the second half, but it is such a small component to the u.k. gdp that it will not change the projection of growth. simon, let's try to circle this back to a market conversation. we are well acquainted with silver volatility. it's one of the most read stories on bloomberg terminal. these are comparing the stock volatility, significantly lower, with the white line versus the sterling volatility. i get it. i understand it absolutely. do you think equity markets are underpricing the rest? these all rolled up, but
1:45 am
markets from inequity perspective are much more laissez-faire. it is also an indicative effect that they are much more diversified in terms of trade of u.k. risk. it is sometimes difficult particularly when you are based in london to look yonder the borders to see the other stories impacting global markets and potential for earnings growth in the second half of the year and next year which ultimately will drive valuation on equities. be broadly will vote.cted by the brexit it's just not simply reflective of the much bigger issues going on the global stage. thank youn french, for joining us. he is staying with us a little bit longer. stay with bloomberg for more on the brexit debate. nigel wilson and labor mp

--think is anti democratic. for me, this is a question of democracy. public consent and explaining to people. the moment we have absolutely no power to control our immigration. salind: china must improve the monetary policy communication as it takes on an increasingly large role in the economy. so says jack lew. he said the decision to devalue was confusing. china's economy is in a much weaker place than it appears to be. saudi arabia says demand for c rude is robust. they have raise prices on most oil grades to the u.s. the chairman of economic development has told bloomberg that prices could hit $60 a barrel. >> i believe the oil price today
2:07 am
is not the equilibrium. i think we will raise the price from $55 to $60. rosalind: hillary clinton has won puerto rico's democratic primary. people go to the polls in california, new jersey, montana, north dakota, south dakota, and new mexico tomorrow. the first female mayor. she is leading against her closest rival. the two will fight a run of conest on june 19. her win will be a blow to the prime minister. global news 24 hours a day, powered by 2400 journalists in more than 150 news bureaus around the world. you can find more stories on the bloomberg at top .

anna, manus? manus: thank you very much, rosalind. let's check in on the markets. the number is stamped on my mind. asia is reacting 48 hours. y.vid, take it awa david: let me get started with the overall picture. three benchmarks i am going to point out, the overall asian metric, you have the one that excludes japan, and then you have southeast asia, which is reflective of the move across the emerging markets. as you can see, we are well into the green at the moment. well off the lows of the day certainly. a much better picture from where we started out our monday. japan is one of the few markets underwater. of course, emerging markets.
2:09 am
that is the story across equity markets right now. i guess come along story short, that awesomely bads job number points of view. emerging markets have a bit more time before we get the second rate hike of the fed. let me break this down across individual markets. in asia, that is the picture across the asian pacific this monday. you can see fairly clearly that the gains are across emerging markets. here is southeast asia and australia. australia, it is about commodities. you have gold-mining leading the game. gold is trading at $40 to $45 u.s. dollars higher. in australia, that is where you have all of the mining spots up 5%.
2:10 am
again broadly speaking, it is about money getting back into emerging markets. it is not only equities. have a look at some of these currencies we were talking about earlier. anna was pointing out these currencies in southeast asia. indonesia will be up about 1.5% against the u.s. dollar. the biggest jump there in several months. this is the same picture you can see across other currencies in southeast asia. if he did have to pick a sort of "how did asia react to the horribly low number of 38,000" it is emerging markets. anna: thank you very much, david. as we have heard, markets have been reacting to the u.s. payrolls. employers adding the fewest jobs last month in all six years, 38,000. economists had been for a gain of 160,000. the debt all but eliminates the possibility that fed officials
2:11 am
will raise interest rates this month. of a hike is just about 40% now. let's speak with the director of citifinancial. give us your wise words around the payrolls number from friday. markets have to adjust really quickly. they are thinking, what happens over the summer? >> number one, the verizon strike. that was about 40,000 jobs that should have been included that were not. of made ay, as i sort general observation. the employment rate did come down and that is because employers continue to leave the marketplace. participation has been declining for about seven years and he continues to fall. we keep getting these low unemployment number, but actually, a lot of people have left the market. we have a lot of slack in the
2:12 am
labor market. we don't think we have, but we do. we have this wonderful conundrum. it is specifically shortages in tehe skilled area. interest rate rises found entertaining, but i doubt they will happen. manus: there is a lot of slack. maybe that is a message janet yellen will try to reset the table with when she speaks today. global bond markets are reacting and we are hitting record lows in bonds. quite a significant shift in terms of how the u.s. yield curve actually thinks about where rates are going to be by the end of this journey. the market is pricing in only two rate hikes between now and two years out? is the market completely deluded in terms of, in two years time, only two fed hikes? >> it is very difficult to know if the market is deluded or not.
2:13 am
in japan, the bank of japan owns about 40% of the market. there is no price discovery. it is very difficult to say, is there value in bonds? hopefully, there is not. elds, real yi obviously, they are close to negative, depending on your the way you are looking at it. the problem is the entire world wanting the same direction. the entire world wants lower currencies and wants growth to go from outside. of thing has really changed. -- nothing has really changed. bonds are reacting to that. it is a highly deflationary environment. we have skill shortages. profits peaked over a year ago in the u.s. now. as night follows day, when profits peak, eventually employment gains fade. that is what we are suffering there now. and not just there, but here.
2:14 am
it is a weak cycle. seven years in, that is what happens. everybody is looking for interest rates to kill it. if i hear one more economist say, the event needs to kill the economy, that is just not true. the cycle can still peak. anna: in the midst of this global experiment with negative interest rates we also have this big unknown hanging over the u.k. economy, which is the eu referendum that takes place june 23. i have a chart showing the ugly monday for the pound. a couple of polls over the weekend suggested a bigger amount of people int h the "leave" campaign. any thoughts going into this week, peter? >> how boring the referendum is. i cannot believe the eu would go this way, it is horrific.
2:15 am
we on the latest ridiculous -- we all know it is ridiculous to ask anybody this question. do you know the answer? based on what, and what we will all see in two terms time. women 10 to be much more cautious. we hope you are all when you tick the box. number two, the migrants have been very strong care and will vote to stay. number three, the population overseas will vote to stay in. referendum, itsh looked like the s&p were going to win, but when push came to shove, absolutely not. it is like being in a golf club. it'll like all of the men, but that is the way it is. anna: i don't know your club. thank you very much.
2:16 am
manus? manus: i got the tickets, anna. you and i can go and have a little bit of fun. next, we are going to talk about china and communications. jack lew says the pboc needs to be clearer about their policy is talks kickoff in beijing. ♪

anna: welcome back. it is 7:19 in london. we've only been up for a few hours. 1.43, the pound against the dollar right now. let's go over to china right now. china's president says his country and the u.s. should talk more often to reduce tension and build trust. speaking at the open of an annual meeting of top officials, he went on to say that the pacific should not be a battlefield for competing views. corp correspondent
2:20 am
joins us now and he is that the talks for us. great to have you on the program. this am play a positiv message. -- this sounds like a positive message coming through. flesh that out a bit. >> the chinese president gave his open remarks here in beijing. earlier this morning, they said that peaceful cooperation is key and certainly, a more conciliatory tone from him. take a listen to what he had to say about this issue earlier today in beijing. >> china and the u.s. need to increase communication over the asian pacific. the vast pacific should be a stage for the inclusive corporation, not an arena for competition. >> those were important
2:21 am
comments because many people were concerned that the south china sea tensions would overshadow important topics to get through over the next few days.l in terms of the south china say with kissing ash carter -- we have heard ash carter say that china is at risk of building a wall and secretin's including -- and a secludeing themselves. but certainly, the focus here should be on the economy. that is where the delegates want to be focused, and not on these tensions over the south cina sea. anna: so, there is the geopolitics. prioritiesrica's
2:22 am
during this meeting, tom? tom: as you know, we sat down with the u.s. secretary of the treasury, jack lew, yesterday and he went to the priorities for the u.s. in these talks, the economic priorities. and obviously, a big focus is the reform agenda. the u.s. wants to know what is happening with the reform particularly when it comes to overcapacity within sectors like steel and aluminum. take a listen to what jack lew had to say. >> the reason the jury is out is these thiese decisions are not always made by economic advisers. these decisions are highly political decisions in any country. and we have less of a sense of whether there is the commitment to follow through. tom: other priorities that jack
2:23 am
lew mentioned were opening the market her ein china so western firms, particularly in sectors like finance, logistics. also, he wants to get more clarity on the exchange rate and clearer communication on beha lf of the pomc. they also want to draw up an investment treaty. those are the u.s. priorities as they enter these talks. manus: thank you very much, tom mckenzie with the latest in patient. -- in beijing. this is all about what jack lew is talking to the leadership about. in other words, make it clear to the world. we have the bloomberg replica. these of the lowest levels since 2014. the question i asked around 6:00
2:24 am
was, but went into this global meltdown earlier over the past year, why every not more reactive now and does it just drift lower? >> well, the answer is, it probably has to. one of the issues remains the flowing of the chinese economy. there is a deep manufacturing recession in china. the release mechanisms remains the currency. i think you are right. it is like a markets. they absorb information and get used to it. this places enormous pressure on everybody else competitively. back to my thesis earlier. competitive devaluation is the name of the game and nobody wants a strong currency. this is one of the biggest concerns to most of the people i talk to. if that process continues and makes them more competitive. it is obvious this will be a
2:25 am
struggle. they are going to break away. the chinese economy is not strong. it is changing, but it is not strong and that is obvious at this stage. so, yeah, it is a nervousness that resonates with a lot of people i speak to. if that continues to weaken, that is a problem. anna: we had the german manufacturing numbers out. they were weak, down 2%. the weakness was in the global picture, not the domestic german picture. this is symptomatic of the slowdown in china. >> everything of coming into play here. it is significant. i am not surprised there isn't some domestic strength. strong currency. nobody wants this and that is the problem you have got. the pressure on bond yields
2:26 am
lower, the pressure on interest rates to stay lower, and then the final one you have is currency depreciation. it is a very challenging environment and china is in the heart of that. manus: let's flip it around and talk about the dollar. rally continues or not, that plays into oil and commodities. we have got oil on the move, gold on the move. i caught up with the abu dhabi team and they are talking about oil around $50. >> the miners have not come back to play yet. the message is, absolutely not. oil, no either. in the long-term, i would not go near oil. the world will de carbonize in the next 20 years. anna: just be aware, the fed
