7:02 am
nejra cehic begins team coverage with a shift in the polls. a shift in the polls -- break it down for me. nejra: we had a couple of polls out over the weekend. the main one the markets are focusing on is this poll showing a three percentage point lead for remain. there was also another poll from the sunday times, showing a one percentage point lead for remaining. now this shift toward remain has come with the campaigning resuming because that was suspended for a couple of days after the murder of the mp. david cameron will become the july zynga -- will be capitulating on this -- capitalizing on this, when he accused his opponents of turkey joining the eu, one being the cost of membership. what's hear more from david cameron. david cameron: as we choose to leave, we can leave.
7:03 am
but if we do, that is it. we are walking out the door, quitting, giving up on this organization, which, even if we leave, will have a huge effect on our lives, on our children, on opportunities, our businesses. britain in the end is a quitter. we stay and we fight. -- on theid cameron flipside, you have boris johnson, the former mayor of london, who said they remain cap has nothing to offer voters and he said they should change the whole course of european history by voting to leave. jon: a lot of people have said that the tone has changed. the tone has not shifted that much. david cameron is still passionate about remaining in the european union. i do not think the message has changed at all. they are still beating the same drum on either side of the campaign. nejra: david cameron was
7:04 am
impassioned in his speech, particularly when he was emphasizing the fact that they were what he called lies from the leave side. but the debate stay very much the same with the remain cap pushing the idea that a brexit would be bad for the economy, and with the league camp -- with the leave cap focusing on the economy. to bring in the market angle -- jon: to bring in the market angle, why former tv coanchor guy johnson. what a rally we are seeing. since 2008.gest that puts it into context. a lot of this has people going a little bit long, and a lot of it is market positioning as well. they are taking profits on cash shorts, doing that on pound-yen. they have also taken profits on the dollar swisse as well. jon: you mentioned profit-taking. i wonder how much of it is
7:05 am
-- and howng off as much is trades coming on. guy: the market has to be hedging heavily against sterling. people put on a lot of positions. maybe those are the positions that are coming on. on the 17th there was a high. those moves are being reflected a number of different assets. appositeou look at the -- at the absolute position? the absolute position has levels going all the way back to 2008. guy: you are going to get a big movie either side. today highlights that you will get a big move in sterling if the remain camp wins out. remember as well, the risk is asymmetric. you have a bigger move on the downside and you will on the upside. saying --le are still
7:06 am
today makes it even more important because sterling is now up, so the move could be even bigger. jon: i was listening to comments from one of the big investment banks of the city, and the trade for them was to keep the options where they are to keep them from the downside. i think the uncertainty has come up a little bit. , i think theyyone would say no. is: you look at what happening with the symmetry of the risk, you can take some of those cash positions off, but you have to have that protection out there. aside from the move on the downside, jpmorgan still believes that if we get a brexit 1.32,, target on cable, euro-sterling at 83. some massive moves. jon: what are you looking for in the next couple of days?
7:07 am
guy: i think it will be what the undecideds do. some of these people will not make up their minds until they walk into the voting booth. nevertheless, over the next few days, they have to figure out what they want to do. if they get a vote, how they get a vote. polling will become a lot more interesting over the next few days you may get some big swings in that number. indicator -- we have been pointing out this all morning. come back here, and it rallies. jon: i am blaming this one on tom keene's shopping habits. he really went long cable when he got into heathrow. the pound continues to move against me. david? david: we will turn away from tom keene's shopping habits and go to india. newsupee is falling on that the governor will leave his post in september when his turn -- when his term expires.
7:08 am
was this an unexpected move? what caused this? definitely, this came as a everyone, andto you can see that it was invisible on the market. all other emerging markets rallied on optimism that there may be the possibility that the united kingdom may stay in the european union. the rupee was the only currency in emerging markets that was in the negative, and it is also because of -- clearly, this is a worry. worried about the policies that he had implemented and a result in keeping the rupee very stable. so with a 5% downturn in the
7:09 am
rupee, it shows the position of investors. david: as if an indian central bank change in brexit was not enough, we will hear from fed chair janet yellen. our bloomberg columnist. what do you expect janet yellen to testify to tomorrow and wednesday? >> the tone of her testimony will probably be almost the fo l to that after meeting last week. followingill be will the election after the testimony. take: does she have to into account the brexit vote on thursday, in toning down whatever she says? na: she said that it will
7:10 am
be one of the factors after the june meeting. definitely this is one of the factors, and we might hear a couple of questions on that as well. david: thank you very much. now let's get an update on what is making headlines outside of business world. investigators are hoping to move a step closer to solving the mystery of the egyptair plane that crashed into the mediterranean. test the keyd to memory units of the flight data and black box voice recorders. they were recovered from the ocean last week. in kabul, afghanistan, at least 14 people were killed when a suicide bomber targeted a minibus. has recently increased its attacks on civilians and afghan security. in pro basketball, cleveland completed a historic comeback by beating golden state in the game 7.

7:16 am
david: all we need are druids. tell us how you are positioning yourself up for thursday and for after the vote. david: on the weakness after last week, we bought u.s. small caps. we owned small caps in europe and japan, the cheapest of the major markets in the world being japan. because brexit is about a trade union. in the end, if a trade union comes apart, it is tough. if it does not, it is a huge turn in sentiment. we are seeing that this morning. caps: is the buy of small evaluation issue? david: yes, and they are outperforming mid-caps, which are outperforming large caps since the february bottom. there is a message in the market . after all this turmoil and worry underneath, investors are selectively looking for spaces and taking risk because they see it as being attractive. david: do you have a view of
7:17 am
whether brexit will happen or not? david: i don't know. this is a rapidly changing world when it comes to brexit polls. david: what happens to your investments if there is brexit? have cash reserves. it is prudent to have some and wait this out. 85%, 90% in the market. the cash reserve waits until after the vote. your positioning in european equities -- how do you hedge with fx around that? david: that is a tough one. if you have to hedge, you have to do with currency risk. etf's. etf's can have hedges. we hedge to the weight of the index around the world, and above the index weight, we do not hedge. jon: you have seen investors seek out down sally -- seek out down side protection.
7:18 am
will they take advantage of the potential birth of volatility if there is a vote to leave the european union? david: there is a second derivative here. brexit, drove money into the yen and japan, and those markets went down. japan is the cheapest of the three major markets of the world -- u.s., germany, japan. i am ignoring the u.k. because of all the turmoil. jon: in terms of japan, you seem theeasingly exposed to japanese yen moving against the central bank. is your positioning on japanese equities -- you cannot ignore what is happening in the fx market. is that the downside risk that the yen keeps appreciating? david: there is a second part here. the forward earnings in japan are up 14 pe, a seven earnings
7:19 am
yield. the interest rate is 0 -- actually minus. when do you ever see the sovereign risk that yield below the earnings yield? 7% for incredible, little companies like toyota and mitsubishi. it is cheap, cheap, cheap in japan. jon: i have heard this so many times over the years, and the only time we have had a push higher is off the back of aggressive central-bank policy. if we wake up friday and the u.k. is still part of the european union, does anything really change? does the market than focus on the next risk event? if we witness a fundamental change in markets and receive risk? witnessingre political change around the world. in this election in the united states, look at the mix we have. what happens in scotland? what happens in spain? is the newurmoil

7:24 am
is still with us. if you were on the panel asking questions of janet yellen, what would you ask her? david: i would go right to a technical question right away. the liquidity coverage ratio has changed the use of bank reserves . two years ago it did not exist. the high-quality liquid asset has changed the alternatives for banks. chair yellen, what is this doing to monetary policy? longer access? how are banks changing decisions? does that change your credit multiplier? that is a very technical question for general listeners. david: implicit in your question is, it is changing -- how is it changing decisions? david: they now have to hold liquid assets to me to test. do they hold them with reserves at the central bank?
7:25 am
that is no caps off, 100% counts, 100% safe, or do they take risk and have haircuts? we see behavioral changes. we see large banks selling fannie mae and freddie mac because there is a haircut. david: because they are too risky, ironically. david: from a liquidity test point of view. this whole notion of the size of a balance sheet is independent now of whether the interest rate goes up and down. people are not grasping that yet. david: and what is that doing to yields? david: it drives yields to a flatter yield curve. we see it all over the world. but it also suggests something else. maybe the central bank balance sheet is too small. maybe there is a need around the world for more dollars in reserves that we presently stash than we presently see.

half reserves in the united states are there, through the u.s. subsidiary of foreign banks. why? look at the choices they are making. david: that is david kotok. thank you very much for being here, david. jon: coming up, the brexit follow. thursday posco is sure to have an impact on u.s. markets and global markets and beyond. the stronger pound and a global risk rally. ♪ you guy's be good. i'll see you later

7:38 am
ing,have been say rightly so, sterling is rich. what we're focusing on is mainly looking at the euro, because we believe the negative implication of a brexit on the euro area will be meaningful. we looked at the euro swiss franc as a cross and that is something i think we hedge a portfolio. that make sense you are protected against the decision on thursday. how do you make sure you will are not missing out? assuming the votes stay in. a great question. if you agree with me that the starting point needs to be slightly less risky, you reduce the overall risk of your portfolio. that puts you in a better

position to look at upside potential. as we have seen today across the boards, there are many of those upside potential's out there. what we have looked at is clearly high cyclical albeit risky assets that have underperformed recently. we focus on the euro stocks. we think we put on upside option strategies on the euro stocks end of the same time, we look at the nikkei index, and the effect of the yen dynamics. there is clearly a light positioning from investors. that is where we think we would see the biggest move higher in a case of remain. david: with respect to the nikkei and european stocks, what is --

terms of economics. where does brexit fit? mohamed: we already have fluid conditions, the yen at 104, and now you start putting a big? on the institutional structure, particularly in europe. all of this is an indication -- when you want an economy at slow time, strangeong things happen and strange risks occur. brexit is one of them and the antiestablishment movement that gave rise to it. defensivethis a decision or offense of? ? they stay in the eu, do they go to the rights and growth? mohamed: it avoids the left, but
8:08 am
does not take us to the right. he still don't solve the fundamental issue. lost an ability to generate high inclusive growth and until the west figures this out -- it can't, it is not an engineering problem, it is political -- unless the politics to up up, we are going to have uncertainty and it is going to stay with us for quite a while. david: if you are a european leader, i'm glimmer go, mr. toeron,, what would take you the right to get inclusive growth going? mohamed: invest in infrastructure, labor market reform. to theetter the will wallet to spend. complete to the european structure. 1.5cannot run a eurozone on legs of a stool. you have to complete that,

fiscal and political integration. of the brilliant things you do is portfolio construction. bring in your experience from the imf on political risk, event risk, and put that together for us and explain how you would construct a portfolio around what is quite clearly a huge event risk. mohamed: this is a key question and a hard one. any committee meeting stay has to start with the simple question, what portfolio construction results in a mistake we cannot afford to make? we are living in such an -- uncertain times. what the six can we afford to make -- what mistakes can we afford to make? fromtions are starting artificial levels. you have uncertainty on top. response to that,

8:12 am
coming up on this program, we have more with mohamed el-erian. just three days until the brexit referendum. janet yellen gives her statement to congress, that starts tomorrow. will we hear anything new? ♪
8:13 am
8:14 am
jonathan: good day, this is "bloomberg ." the pound is a much stronger pound dominating the fx market, the biggest upward move on a daily basis since 2008. let's go to the board as the polls start to slip away from brexit odds.
8:15 am
positive, up 217 points on the session so far. a global equity market rally. the pound is much stronger. switch up the boards and i will show you what is happening. the yield shifting higher on a u.s. 10 year yield. risk goes to commodities. extended gains from a one-month low. it is the fx market and volatility i want to discuss now. still with us.n i want to put a chart on the screen and talk to viewers about the elevated levels of volatility we have seen. this is the implied volatility, the red dot is where we are now. the one inside that is the in scotland in 2014.
8:16 am
it shows, even with the retracement, we are in extremely elevated levels, devils we did not see in the depth of the financial crisis. what is your take away? mohamed: it is a specific issue, brexit fundamentally addresses the uk's trading relationships and therefore fx prospects. that is understandable. let's remember this is happening in an incredibly fluid interest rate world. the fed is giving different guidance on where it thinks rates are going to be, depending the week it of is. janet yellen is going to have a hard time in congress. is the fed inconsistent, or, in my view, is it overly data dependent? you are going to get fx volatility in a big way.
8:17 am
the question is if that then imparts lots of genuine volatility on to other market segments that have their own implications for price action. jonathan: there has been massive discussion about liquidity in a market, specifically more so the bond market rate the fx market is highly liquid. you are looking at the pound versus the dollar. the expectations if the u.k. eu, you could see a seismic move in and fx market. talk to me about market structure and the ships we have seen. it is something you have spent a lot of time on. mohamed: the main thing to remember is the structure of the markets. in the old days, the dealers were big and the end users were relatively small. with a change in the paradigm, -- the middle has shrunk by regulation and market
8:18 am
forces and the outside has grown as more money has gone to asset managers. when the paradigm changes and everybody looks to go to the cope., the pipes cannot that is why small events can cause such large movements. most professional traders understand that and add a liquidity premium to this. i don't know if the retail investor does. david: in response to jonathan's question, you said that the fed is to data dependent. focusing on janet yellen, is it with theg that ability markets and congress? if so, what could she do to regain that? to maintainis hard credibility if the signals to give to the market changed so much. i have sympathy for the fed. as fed is trying to be honest and transparent as
8:19 am
possible and because of that, it is being accused of not just inconsistency, but a slave to the market. for the fed tois have conviction in their vision and start guiding the markets rather than overreacting to short-term data. the continues to react to short-term data, it risks becoming japan. you are the reverse of looking far? mohamed: we know we are stuck in the low growth equilibrium and the pressure and tensions produced are becoming quite noticeable. a range ofks live in being effective, ineffective and counterproductive. a key issue is credibility. i think the fed has a difficult
8:20 am
time. it is better off than the bank of japan. at the bank of japan has become either ineffective or counterproductive jonathan:. that is a big statement. we will continue that conversation. later on the program, brad katsuyama sits down with "bloomberg ." it is an interview you see first on bloomberg. plus, volatility surging to the highest level in four years. how the market looks following the brexit referendum. kit jukes joins us for what he sees in the fx market. ♪
8:21 am
8:22 am
david: this is "bloomberg ." we are back with mohamed we went to pick up on the last point you made, a powerful point. he said you are concerned the
8:23 am
bank of japan is somewhere between ineffective and counterproductive. explain why that is and what they could t due to improve their situation. mohamed: with the bank of japan already in negative territory when it comes to policy rates, you have to ask the question, how has it gotten here. i don't think the bank of japan ever envisaged such a stronger yen when it took interest rates negative. now, it does not know what to do. been basically paralyzed and sidelined after such a counterintuitive outcome. the critical issue, david, is not the central banks's fault. they are caring a huge burden. it is the politicians that are not delivering. they not delivering the third arrow. david: if they called you up and said give me advice, what would you tell them? mohamed: what i would tell mr.
8:24 am
draghi, chair yellen, you have to get the other elements of policymaking in place. whether you look at japan, the u.s., exit, what happened in india with the the pressure of the governor, this is messy politics getting in the way of the economic policy. messyall about politics and economic policy finds it hard to be coherent. jonathan: there has been a conversation about what central banks should and should not do. they will keep pushing stimulus busts. they're going to corporate debt. do you see anything, a catalyst for change, in japan? real catalystnly would be structural reform. in terms of what the bank of japan will do, i suspect they will try to do qe. i do not know if they will go more negative. they will try to do more qe and i do not think it is going to
8:25 am
make any fundamental difference to the outlook. jonathan: looking at the global bond market, david was looking at flat yield curves. are is the message you taking away currently from a flat treasury curve? mohamed: the messages, don't take out the usual method. anthe u.s., it is usually indication of recession. i do not think that is the case this time. u.s. rates are influenced in a major way by what is happening in europe and europe is a completely different outlook, andeen a very active ecb rather sluggish economic outlook. i can explain europe on the basis of european development. in the case of the u.s., you cannot explain it, you have to speak to europe as well. in frontnet yellen is of congress, willis make a difference? mohamed: yes. is there a likelihood the fed will flip again if the next
8:26 am
employment report is strong? people want to know how deep is the conviction of this fed. thank mohamed el-erian, you so much for being here. coming up, brad katsuyama joins us to explain how his newly approved exchange will slow down trading and much more. it is an interview you will see here first on bloomberg next. ♪ okay, ready?

27 points. global news, 24 hours a day, powered by 2,400 journalists in 150 news bureaus around the i am a much andre. david? david: a big win for the heroes of flash boys. the ie x group gained approval to become the 13th official stock exchange, one that hopes to shield the risks in high-frequency trading. bloomberg's editor at large is live with the ceo of ie x group and you will see him first here on bloomberg. >> i am here with brad mohamed el-erian -- brad katsuyama. x receiveid ie approval from securities and exchange commission to operate and exchange, it received unconditional approval. why is the unconditional part important? >> there was a lot of speculation about how we would
8:33 am
be approved. having an additional approval means that it is much harder to get people to buy into the model. they are not sure if it will exist in the future. having it on the way it was done, we couldn't be happier about that. teams a big moment for our and the people who support us. >> part of getting unconditional approval is the protected quote. what does that mean? >> we are part of the national market system. we have the best price, it is mandatory to trade with us. people are forced to connect. >> they have to trade with you as opposed to choosing to trade with you. even the firms among your critics. >> we are a fair access market so it is their decision to connect and from the very beginning, we have been fair access.
8:34 am
it is entirely the industry's choice whether to connect or not. we have grown to the second-largest nonexchange and this is the next step for us to grow. >> explained to people what you can do now as an exchange. why is it important to be an exchange as opposed to what you were before? >> part of it is scale. there are limits to how big dark pools can grow and we no longer have a limit to how large we can grow. the other part is competing at the highest level. we are focused on serving multiple constituents, so we look at -- our best relationships are with the brokers and asset managers but there have been a number of trading companies that have expressed interest in working with ie x. >> you have about 2%. you account for 2% of all equity
8:35 am
trading in the united states. where should that number be a year from now? >> it is hard to predict. we don't offer the same incentives as other exchanges. we are not paying people to send us orders. we have to earn those a different way. part of those is people understanding the execution quality on ie x. a lot of large asset managers have expressed higher execution quality, so it takes time for that message to sink in. it will take some time but we are confident that we can become one of the largest markets. your critics are vocal, powerful, and deep-pocketed. they include citadel, nasdaq, and others. how do you expect them to respond? >> we have seen a lot of the strategy and the strategy was to aggressively oppose.
8:36 am
public investors, which forces the opposition to be public about why they didn't support idx despite us being backed by some of the larger investors. part of this was about misinformation. we read a lot of things that weren't true and we expect that to continue. outcome, influence the which was iex getting approval to become an exchange. >> nasdaq and others have threatened to file a lawsuit challenging this decision by the sec. -- the fcc. how are you preparing for it? >> it is hard for us to comment in particular. from our standpoint, it is is a companyasdaq that actively pitches the fact that they are a technology company -- they pitched disruptors in silicon valley and
8:37 am
this is their response to facing disruption themselves. we would be surprised if it took that pass but at the end of the day -- >> an empty threat in other words? >> it is clearly a threat. whether it is empty or not we will see. it is an interesting response. >> how about this other potential response that other exchanges -- there are 12 of them -- might set up their own speed bumps. you have the bump of your own, which will draw to your exchange. what do you think they will do the same thing? >> nasdaq owns three, that's owns four. it is odd to set up a speed bump competeand i think to in a genuine way, you have to look at what they do principally overall.
8:38 am
it is about investor protection or the things that we have done? the order types and these other things? doing it in one of your three or four markets, that is not an approach they would like. when you look at the way they make money, maker-taker is a huge part of the exchange model but they earn more money from selling speed than from actually trading. to set up a speed bump means that is not your priority. be, again, we will see how it all plays out but we hope people can see through lipservice. >> now that you have this approval, you are going to get your exchange up and running in mid-august. what is your next ambition? >> we are focused very much on u.s. equities.
8:39 am
we will make sure we are ready for a long and drawnout out battle because that continues to be our primary aim. we have looked at other asset classes and geographies but our goal from day one was to get it done right here. expansion is a possibility that we really don't want to. >> what would be the next logical step? >> this is all for us to look at in the coming months. there are other marketplaces and other things that have popped up. devoid ofhe market is trust in different markets. >> where? >> i don't know if i could say exactly where right now but there are some things in the works. >> i would look forward to when the time is right. are you going to go public? >> there is no plan on that in the near future.
8:40 am
it is about being focused. we will have to think about in the future but it is definitely nowhere on our radar in the near future. we are focused on watching the exchange and working with our partners to continue to grow. >> great to have the opportunity to talk to you. .avid, that is brad katsuyama he is trying hard not to get too far ahead of themselves. david: thanks very much. facebook is holding its annual shareholder meeting today. let's bring in tom giles, executive editor of global technology. a lot of news has been about this new class of shares. explain what that is. >> what this does is this gives facebook the opportunity to issue 5.7 million shares in a 3-1 shot -- stocks chair.
8:41 am
what this does is this ensures mark zuckerberg doesn't lose his control of the company as they issue stock, let's say for acquisition or compensation. those new shareholders -- that doesn't dilute his stake. >> so you get economic interest? >> absolutely. proportionally you get some say in proxy votes, which is important, but you are never going to be able to kick him out of his job. david: this is mark zuckerberg saying "trust me, let me run the company." >> so far, when you look at the performance of the company, they turned it around in mobile. they said we haven't quite mailed our noble -- our mobile strategy but we understand how it works and they delivered
8:42 am
results. ever since that didn't, you have seen stock perform really really well. david: timing is everything. tell us what else we might expect out of a shareholder meeting. >> there could be some debate around this, some question about the long-term. what facebook wants to deliver, whether they talk about it today or in future calls, he issued his 10 year plan for the company . very ambitious. they are monetizing advertising and social media. in the future they have more they want to do. they are already working on this messenger bot, this ai fueled tool that will help you interact people.ebook and other they've got instagram. , they aret what's app delving into virtual reality.

david: this is bloomberg go. hour, up in the next capitalist mark mahaney was tell us what he expects out of the facebook shareholder meeting. plus which tech stocks he likes. to the fx market we go. volatility and currencies reaching the highest level since 2011 last week on brexit concerns. .oining us is kit juckes still, i have set up for the last few hours, we are at incredibly elevated levels still. various things going on, thoughts that the dollar was giving up the ghost and yen buying, but the brexit story of the u.k. referendum
8:47 am
generally has ceased to be solely about the u.k.. it has been a much wider risk. in amsterdam and regret, the impact on spanish government bonds and eastern european pharisees and yen -- european currencies and yen. jonathan: i am reminded of a phrase of yours, trades coming off rather than coming on. it is hard to gauge the nature of the traits that are going on today. the positions are rolling over quite fast. a lot of people got very frightened last week that it was very big in the market and you can see that at the end of last week, the pound was stabilizing. in that sense, when the market couldn't get more short or the
8:48 am
shorts couldn't get more traction out of the polls favoring the leave campaign, those are the positions coming off. jonathan: "they think it is all over. it isn't yet." it isn't over yet, is it? it is not as dramatic as the price action we have seen today. >> the polls are dead level. and neck.k for the last few days, it was people's wallets who spoke over their hearts. the wallet often has the last word in many people's decisions. people betting on remain are concerned with. 95% of the bets that have been taken by book makers are on remaining so that is what is pushing in of people to think this could happen.
8:49 am
we've never done one of these before. the margin of error is big and they are dead level. jonathan: the conversation i've had over the last few weeks is asymmetric risk. the downside are potentially a lot bigger than the moves to the upside. with that in mind, even with the polls, what you see is risks to the downside much bigger than upside potential. >> i thought the near-term risk had become more symmetric because once i got bond yield solo, -- we will put that asymmetric risk back because as soon as those bearish or negative bets came this morning, i agree. there are a lot of people buying yen on the back of this. there are a lot of positions that i see where the euro is growing, the yen is growing.
8:50 am
euro-yen is going to be bought in sage markets. i think people are trying to have trades of that nature, possibly some buying in the old market that looks like it would be an ok that either way. big that there so idea that there is anything that is fine either way, -- jonathan: from one of the major banks, "take the cash shorts off but leave the options on." is that when you would prescribe? if you've got bets on, take some off and if you've got your options on, then you are winning already. bet now,now -- to there is not an easy volatility trade. jonathan: what is the stockton
8:51 am
guide to getting thursday night? dribsre going to get drabs of results. some of the voting comes out early from areas and we will know age groups. -- i am going to infer with tiny confidence -- that i would very much like to get some sleep before i find out something more solid. jonathan: one thing i can guarantee is kit juckes will be getting no sleep. the global stock markets rallying on recent polls pointing to the u.k. remaining in the european union. we show you what is happening next on bloomberg go.
8:52 am
8:53 am
8:54 am
david: this is bloomberg go. time now for the battle of the charts. this is the first time we have had judges on two continents. julie hyman? julie: i was determined to not talk about brexit this morning, so this is a brief shining moment of non-brexit related talk. i'm talking about the s&p 500 bond yield. this is what sean darby pointed to this morning. year rollinge basis and it looks at percentage changes and correlation between them. it goes back to the mid-70's here. it is a negative correlation most of the time. bondu saw stocks go up and yields go down or vice versa, in the 2000s we saw that turnaround.
8:55 am
we are near highs at this point in terms of the correlation. he thinks that is not necessarily going to last. this is one of the reasons he said investors should be concerned about long-term equity returns. what's that correlation. david: money is not coming out of stocks and bonds or vice versa anymore. >> i am looking at brexit odds. the market moves were so drastic this morning even though we get ready to open here. looking at the s&p, euro stocks, and the nikkei, looking over the s&p futures, the brexit odds -- you can find this on the terminal -- you can see this huge move down here. it makes me wonder what we are going to see over the next couple of days if they remain in the eu. are going toat we
8:56 am
see everyday, this is huge. david: that suggests it wasn't just a poll over the weekend. it started before that. i am voting for julie because i like this idea of correlation of bonds and stocks. so john? brexit chart did a without realizing it. julie with awith little asterisk. coming up in the next hour ago, mark mahaney joins us to reveal his expectations from facebook's shareholder meeting. a global risk rally. we continue the coverage right here.

>> a shift in u.k. voter sentiment to remain in the eu is driving markets higher, sending the pound up the most since 2008. jonathan: oil is searching for a
9:00 am
second day in a row rising from a one-month low last week. facebook ceo mark zuckerberg meets with shareholders today at the company's annual meeting. up for a vote? a new class of shares. we are now just a little under 30 minutes away from the opening bell in new york. i am david westin and jonathan ferro is joining from london. jonathan: what a week we have lined up. we count you down to the u.k. referendum and what a way to kick off the week. futures firmer, much much firmer. approaching the cash open in new york city, dow futures up 216 points.
9:01 am
s&p 500 positive 1.29%. the ftse up three percentage points. if you want to see a one-day pop, go to the fx market and pull up the pound against the dollar. 1.46, 52. the biggest one-day gain for sterling on a percentage basis against the dollar since 2008. 10 year yield up five basis points. there are the big market moves. here are the three stories right here and right now, beginning with number one. brexit driving markets higher and all highs on the yellen testimony -- all eyes on the yellen testimony. with us to discuss it all is oppenheimer fund portfolio manager alessio. our first story is in the u.k..
9:02 am
the remain vote is swinging three points ahead of the leave camp in a battle for britain's future in the european union. that shift is driving markets higher with the pound jumping the most since 2008. a lot of people, yourself included, have constructed portfolios for the risk averse. has the story changed your mind? story isekend highlighting that the market reaction is in line with what he would have expected. you are seeing a percent of historical volatility. the fx markets are the ones that are supposed to react the most. have structured our portfolio to be resilient to either outcome in the near-term by buying some hedges on either direction. the reality is we didn't see brexit to be immediately in the short run a systemic event because even in the event of a leave, it would just begin a two
9:03 am
year-long process between the u.k. and eu. we have structured the portfolio to be fairly resilient and focus on fundamentals but the reaction today is what you would expect. david: we are already seeing a reaction going towards risk. would vote is to remain, you expect that to be a further pop in the riskier assets. >> we will continue to see a pop in risk assets? friday, we have seen a generalized improvement in global growth momentum going into this referendum. reg's it was holding back the ability of financial assets to rally to reflect that medium-term sentiment. on the currency side, we know has the shift from the fed the potential to weaken the dollar in the coming weeks. so a remain vote would probably
9:04 am
fuel more dollar weakness, more emerging-market fx than equities outperformance. the question i would ask is a question i asked the guest earlier in the day. a 2001 cash allocation high -- i would wonder whether post breaks it changes anything at all? >> at the end of the day you will remain an environment where valuations are fairly expensive everywhere. cost stands on a global allocation for you. all to remain in the event of a remain vote. david: what is your immediate toction if there is a vote remain and risk assets will continue to grow? my first desire would be to
9:05 am
probably reduce the long dollar exposure. having -- we have already expressed an over emerging market equity as the beginning of a long-term trade versus developed markets. what we would do is look for tactical opportunities to add to that risk on trade between aem ndm. -- between e.m. and dm. tomorrow, janet yellen has to capitol hill for the first of those two days of testimony. investors are going to be playing -- be paying close attention to what she has to say about the u.s. economy. looking at this, one of the what -- she this is would respond if these numbers pop back up?
9:06 am
what do you think she will be saying? >> i think she will hint the need for more than just one pop in the unemployment peril number but regardless, i think she would try to communicate to reiterate this dovish into -- iteration. from the five-year forward metric in the market to the consumer surveys, the long-term michigan expeditions, everything is coming in by half a percent. this is not supposed to happen at a time when the unemployment rate continues to fall and oil prices are rising. already, the way these relationships are working is not intuitive. i think she will reiterate that we remain in a hiking bias but that these will be extremely
9:07 am
gradual and it is going to be a tangle with the market. as the dollar weakens, they will be no room to hike one more time but the market will respond and the tangle will continue for a long time. jonathan: much has been made call,usly of the bernanke the yellen call, the idea of what you are talking about. the markets rally and the federal reserve may then step in and tighten. ?e make it too much >> unfortunately, we are in this reality and the fed is ox in this reality and that would make complicated.more low, that rates remain when the market will take when the economy will roll over and the market will follow there is not much we
9:08 am
can do to offset that unless we talk about unconventional policy measures. david: if you got to ask a question of janet yellen, what is the one thing you would like to know from her? >> how is the fed thinking about this disconnect between folding -- falling inflation expectations and a time when all the easy to grasp indicators such as the unemployment rate are suggesting we should be heading -- at least stable inflation expectations if not rising. that is what i would ask. yellen to the politics of d.c., the race for the white house. rough couple of weeks for the trump campaign, he is meeting with top lieutenants to plot his path forward. a recent number of missteps has staff and donors complaining they aren't organized enough at a critical moment in the race. the politics of the u.k. is one
9:09 am
thing, the united states is the next event risk on the horizon. we spent the morning talking about high implied volatility and the question of whether this goes away with or without a brexit. is the u.s. the next thing we spend too much time worrying about? election is less of a clear-cut driver of markets than something binary like exit or the greek referendum. if you were to come towards that election with a very close somewhatyou would have of a risk premium. no politician really follows the script of the campaign but if we were to take prompt at his word, we would be going into this trade,n with train -- protectionism, the threat of renegotiating trade deals with
9:10 am
