count them. i'm anna edwards live in london. it is 6:00 in the morning. the broader equity picture in asia is quite stable. they posted stimulus from a central bank, entering into the market psyche. let's have a look at what is happening with the pound. the pound catching his breath -- its breath after the dreadful selloff we have seen over the last couple of days or so. down to 1985 levels. the relative index perhaps signaling the plunge may slow. let's bring up our risk radar justin at you -- just to show you where the markets are. it is up around half a percent in the asian session. the yen fairly flat at 102.02. pause for thought. abe will be watching foreign-exchange and stock markets closely.

1:04 am
recession may be as high as 50% following the u.k. decision. the 10-year yields may fold which may drive up the value of a dollar. britain represents a small part of the global economy, a brexit would slow trade, immigration and trade around the world. as the brexit was not shocking enough, england's stock exchange is also out of europe. it was beaten by iceland. fans went wild after the 2-1 win with . iceland is the smallest nation to qualify for an international tournament. for england resigned immediately after the loss. on can find more stories bloomberg. anna: thank you.
1:05 am
futbol, but ih could feel the nation sighing. let's check in on the asian markets. a fairly stable session in current trading environments. juliette: yes, absolutely. it also comes on the back that yesterday they managed to stave off the brexit shot but if you want to see how they are feeling, you only have to look at the japanese bond market. all yields on the two-year, five-year, 20, 30 and 40-year japanese yields have dropped to record lows and we are seeing these brexit concerns get the investors flying to safety. can see the yield on the two-year japanese bond is down. they are all down below 1%. we have seen a turnaround in
1:06 am
japan. up 6/10 of 1%. the yen weaker at the moment. we could see some stimulus coming back through from the bank of japan. there has been stimulus in south korea today to the tune of $17 billion to really cushion that economy from any affects of the fallout coming through from the global economy. we are seeing some flat movement in shanghai. the hang seng, the asian economy most closely exposed to britain, and that is the market coming under pressure. hong kong is down 8/10 of 1%. kong's richest man has a large holding tied to britain and that share price is down by 2.5%. elsewhere, mixed across southeast asia. australia being hit by the downturn in commodity prices. overall, the regional index is
1:07 am
in the black so we are seeing some support coming through from asian equities today. anna: thank you very much. of a busy day with post brexit meetings, mario draghi talked about the uk's decision to leave the european union. setdraghi: let's aside the questions we have for our british friends. for all of us in europe, the european union and indeed for the world at large. try to findide -- i the word that describes our feelings. i was talking about this a moment ago. wordnk, probably the best would be sadness. anna: the ecb president made the comments at the opening of the central banks annual forum in portugal. draghi will meet with eu
1:08 am
leaders in brussels as policy makers scramble to map the way ahead. elliot joins us now. he is in portugal. mario draghi is still expected to make a keynote speech. what is he expected to say? one what imagine that when he speaks at 9 a.m. local time, which is the same as 9:00 a.m. london time, he would not be able to get away from the impact. the speech he originally had planned may have changed somewhat since the vote on june 23. going what he is presumed to outline is what the european central bank is doing about it. he said in the past that the ecb would do whatever it takes to make sure everything the eurozone remains intact and everything is ok. we know they have said they
1:09 am
stand ready to provide additional liquidity. the coulds reckon reduce its purchases of corporate bonds. it made about 5 billion euros worth since the start of it earlier this month. they may be compelled to cut interest rates. obviously, he will not tell us precisely if the ecb will cut or do anything else in that regard, but he will try to reassure markets that the european central bank and other central bankers here as well i very much on the case. anna: what else is on the agenda at the central bank? some of the scripting may change since last thursday. what else are they going to be talking about? so, there are plenty of things on the agenda for the ecb. some of them have taken a
1:10 am
backseat in the wake of the british vote to leave the union. things like a eurozone wide protection scheme. that is something they may want to try to kickstart into the right direction. longer-term plans, for example, for a eurozone-wide treasury, finance ministry. things like that will not happen until countries have made the necessary structural reforms, deficits have come down to within the levels of 3% that is prescribed by the european central bank and the likes. there will be other internal housekeeping things on the agenda and other central bankers are here from around the world. they will be discussing the way forward and what to do in the event that the volatility and the turmoil we have seen in the financial markets translate into something more worrying, perhaps recession in britain where the eurozone or globally. anna: thank you very much,
1:11 am
elliott. greenspan predicts scotland will leave the u.k. following the referendum. in an interview, he called the vote a terrible outcome in all respects. >> i think they obviously made a terrible mistake. closedmed it would be a issue very quickly and the alitical problems is consequence of the minority which would be pushed aside. they were mistaken. the prime minister has lost his job and the cabinet will lose their job. it's a terrible outcome in all respects. anna: alan greenspan there. joining us now is the director of phantom financial consulting. we start with the big picture.
1:12 am
your experience of the bank of england and what you saw, talking about the big picture. hours, over the last 12 expectations coming through in markets about what central banks can do to support the current environment. are we expecting too much? >> from central banks, i think so. what they can do is very limited. monetary policy has come to the end of the road. very is roles of the dice in terms of interest rates, applying the kiwi two different assets whether it be government bonds were corporate bonds and none of those make a great deal of difference to economic outcomes. where we are now with brexit and the impact on sterling, we're in the beginnings of a kind of currency war situation where every currency is trying to be the force.
1:13 am
the ones markets are selling first. the race yesterday but others would want to prevail. some coordination to try to management process, but i don't see it having a significant impact. there is a 20%e chance of a rate cut from the u.s., this is from the fed, built into markets from the end of the year. it has come from off the floor. zero expectation of a rate cut. is that overdone in the u.s.? erik: i think so, unless they are concerned to keep the value of the dollar low which would be a mistake in the current environment. they should allow the dollar to appreciate because everyone else is trying to sell off. i think the impact that the world brexit has on the
1:14 am
in a macro sense is not that great. as long as it holds politically, the way it falls apart is if the politicians do not get their act together rapidly enough. prevent, for example, a fesurgence, reigniting o questions about the long-term viability of the euro would cause this to turn into something much more pronounced long-term. anna: it is amazing how the normal politics can seem interesting but a very little consequence to markets on your average tuesday. yet, we find yourselves in a very different situation. markets were reassured by draghi's comments back in 2012 -- whatever it takes. the push in the market which has meant people have worried too much, but that is all for nothing if the eurozone were to fall apart. erik: absolutely.
1:15 am
the idea is holding portuguese corporate bonds, or shares from the bank that holds those bonds. i'm concerned about the long-term risk on the possibility. i don't worry about that in terms of the current pricing for those. i know if anything goes wrong, the ecb and mario draghi will step in like he promised. that has put doubt in my mind that maybe there will not be an ecb. maybe britain leaving is the start of unraveling of the whole project. chance that5% outcome comes to pass. anna: when i'm looking at the banking stocks, especially the u.k. focus, is this about weakness in the u.k. economy. is this about eurozone debt? the difficulty making money. all of those things together?
1:16 am
erik: all of those things. when we think about the european peripherals the that matter into the banking system with respect if they hold that debt. there is a structural problem and one that would come to fruition ifif it -- this is the unraveling. there are concerns about their ability to access the european markets. suggests the fundamental probability down the line will be a consequence of that. issues on top of that to deal with negative interest rates being a possibility. anna: thank you very much, erik. he used to run the bank of england's macro mottos. dels. plenty of brexit events today.
1:17 am
at 9:00 this morning, addressing the european parliament at the start of the exit. half an hour later, angela merkel will deliver a speech to the german parliament on the same subject. eu leaders are scheduled to meet officially in brussels later and then the european commission will also discuss brexit. a lot of talking going on today. later this morning, a bloomberg explosive --exclusive. ervyn king will be with us. jonathan hill stepped away from the commission. that is here on countdown at 7:00 u.k. time. up next, british prime minister david cameron goes to brussels for what promises to be an uncomfortable dinner with eu leaders. ♪
1:18 am
1:19 am
1:20 am
1:21 am
♪ anna: welcome back. 7:30 in brussels. the summit to address the brexit fallout will get underway today with eu leaders. yesterday, the leaders of the euro area's biggest economies say they are keen to living for quickly to eliminate market uncertainty. meeting just a few days after a very painful and regrettable -- the citizens of great britain to leave the european union. we do respect this decision, of course, but it will have to be sorted through in its consequences. anna: good morning, ryan. given that article 50 is yet to be filed, we heard from the eu there could be no talks until that is filed.
1:22 am
what can we expect from the summit? ryan: look, i think if we go back to the divorce analogy -- britain has effectively announced it wants a divorce. it has not filed for divorce yet and it is the first time sitting down with his counterparty and it is going to air his feelings while the other side does the same. we have 28 you leaders coming together. they will be talking about britain, what to do about britain but they will also be talking about how to save the union. this is a very big meeting. when they listen to the british prime minister over dinner tonight, i think it is going to be just that. i think there will be in exchange of views. we have said the british prime minister will not invoke article 50. the germans will not start negotiations until britain has. this will be about why did you do that? here is what i'm upset about. you need to do this.
1:23 am
i don't think we should expect a lot more than that from this meeting tonight, though that will be probably interesting when you get 28 politicians in a room and they say what they think. anna: you mentioned the divorce. i think sleeping on the sofa is the same kind of analogy being used. john kerry wrapped up his visit to brussels and london. did he have anything to offer. ryan: he is the marriage counselor, or maybe the divorce counselor. he came here to brussels, said a bunch of nice things about the european union, its significance to the united states. he then flew to the u.k. and that the foreign secretary and said the same thing. he said he regretted brexit but what can we do? i think that is the big question. what can the u.s. do? they are concerned about the playbook for rules and geopolitics in europe which has been thrown open. the u.s. and john kerry simply
1:24 am
wanted to make sure that he was having the ear of both sides and said keep it civil. what we have that unites us as opposed to what separates us, the u.s. is concerned about containing russia, trade, the financial market. there is a lot at play. anna: thank you very much. not easy for the u.s. to answer. erik is still with us. what do you expect the bank of england to do? erik: one things they are doing right now which is very important is remaining calm, at least somebody is. it is not completely imploding. there is something about that air of stability, especially from carney and others of the bank which is a good thing no matter what they do. i know that calmness is external and internally they are under intense pressure.
1:25 am
they are working extremely hard to get around this problem and come up with a strategy. anna: what does the strategy look like? they are getting the monetary policy together but what does the strategy look like? will they raise more quantitative easing? what are we talking? erik: i will go to the last one of those. i don't think it will make a difference if they cut rates. they may do more qe. i think the key thing they should do is stand by to provide liquidity. they have made those statements. contingency funds available for the liquidity. prevent them from having a credit crunch. that is priorities one third 10. it looks like he has done it and a lesson learned when we did not quite do that fast enough in 2009. that is good.
1:26 am
remain unflappable. somebody give the impression that somebody here has a plan. the helicopter money is another issue. things that actually have a chance of improving in the economy or changing it, improves it or makes it worse. there will be unintended consequences. the helicopter money is possibly what is coming, whether it is in the u.k. or other countries like japan. anna: do they wait for the data first? they will i suppose based on the value of sterling, the status of the markets. or may be there hand is forced by the political chaos. anna: big bank stocks can false out. thank you very much, erik, spending the last half hour with us.

endure an awkward dinner later toer his failed efforts t stop the pound from slumping again yesterday. s&p has stripped the u.k. of its aaa rating, lowering it to aa because of what he calls a less predictable policy framework. fitch cut its rating as well. >> we do no longer think that the institutional strength of the u.k. is what we have been used to before. this regards the predictability, the stability and the effectiveness of policymaking. that has been greatly weakened. there is no longer a strength. we also think the funding risk for u.k. entities have increased which is important because the u.k. is extremely dependent on

1:34 am
seeing commodities rise. the bloomberg commodity index which tracks returns rather than spot prices rebounded from its lowest level in more than three weeks. we are seeing wti at about $47 a barrel which is rising along with copper. what i want to show you, just do end, is the bond market because we have been talking about this new abnormal bond market. bond yields continue to tumble globally. futures are now indicating the next move from the fed will likely be a rate cut. there is the probability dropping of a rate rise. 10 year yields have dropped in to record lows in japan, australia and other countries today. japan benchmark yields have dipped below 1% for the first time. the u.k. 10 year yield dropped below 1% for the first time yesterday. anna: thank you.

sterling has bounceback for the first time since the brexit vote in today's session but it is far off where it was a week ago. we now have a chart of the hour. good morning. yousef: it has been an 11% tumble over two days. that is a serious knock and we will put this into perspective. traders and investors are trying to put some certainty in the uncertainty. this is the relative strength indicator, 14 days against the u.s. dollar. notice the drop and leveling off. i tried to highlighted with the two circles. it helps us measure velocity, if it is oversold or overbought. anything under 30 is an indicator that it is oversold. currently at levels of 28. the chart would suggest the pound is due for a

reversal and strategists are scrambling to adjust. we saw what happened with goldman sachs where there three months target has fallen through. we will see were this goes from here. anna: thank you. let's get back to the u.k. political scene as david cameron is set to face his fellow european union leaders in brussels later for the first time since the brexit. back in britain, the political situation is in a state of extreme flux. jeremy corbyn will face a no-confidence valid today after several have resigned in the wake of the results. no one has put their name forward for the race to be the next prime minister. george osborne has brought himself out. speaking in the house of commons yesterday, david cameron said while the u.k. was exiting the eu, it was not turning its back on the world. mr. cameron: we must not turn our backs on europe or the rest
1:37 am
of the world. the nature of the relationship we secure with the eu will be determined by the next government, but i think everyone has agreed we want the strongest possible economic links with our european neighbors and with our close friends in north america. important partners like india and china. anna: britain will have to make new trade agreements with the european union and with other countries as well. our next guest will help us understand. he is the former ceo of u.k. trade and investment. he joins us now in the studio. very good to see you this morning. speaking to the topic of trade, one of note, where did you start? what kind of trade relationship is what the bonds are talking about. boris johnson is still talking about access to the foreign markets. >> we need to be in agreement
1:38 am
with the european union. we cannot stop negotiating with america or china until we have some clarity, or until we have left and then had some clarity about the nature of the relationship with europe and we have had none. the european union has not decided what their position will be. we don't know who will be prime minister and we don't know what are negotiating position will be. until we have some political clarity, we really don't know where our policy will go. anna: if we can put aside the political chaos for just a moment and we focus on the exact trading relationship, it would be in the uk's best interest and brussels, are we talking about a norway model or a new u.k. model? andrew: it depends whose interests you were talking about. if you are talking about london, it is clear that no way model is going to be the best thing
1:39 am
because that will retain the passport right of institutions. if you are talking about the votedst of the man who leave because he wanted to restrict immigration or thought he would protect his manufacturing industry, then there will be other interests. if you voted to say i want sovereignty, you want as distant as a relationship as you can. that is why we need a prime minister and government which sets out its objectives, policies so we know what interests they are defending. i would argue the closest possible trading relationship with europe, as close a relationship to what we have now would be in the city's best interest. anna: you have a great deal of experience. you have worked before this, despite denials coming from
1:40 am
various services. no reparations being made for brexit. you thought preparations must be made behind the scenes. are you sure now? andrew: i hope so. one of the oddities is how little preparation so many of the brexiteers did not do. it was a shocking decision of the prime minister to instruct civil-service not to do any preparation. i don't understand that. they have not been doing any detailed preparations and they are scrambling to do it. yesterday, the prime minister announced the establishment of a task force with treasury, business department, staff to start planning. of course, we cannot really do detailed planning on so we know what the government -- until we know what the government of the day wants, its priorities and objectives are.
1:41 am
anna: do we need a new election to establish that? do we need to seek a new mandate? andrew: i don't think they need to let all. there is a majority. i think it will be a decision of politics taken entirely on the question can they win a large majority? can they stick it to the opposition? i don't think we need that for policymaking. anna: we have this standoff over article 50 where various forces have seen we can have talks before we trigger article 50 and the eu said that will not work. you have to trigger article 50 if you want to talk. how does that get resolved? andrew: both sides are sitting out the negotiations. one thing that is little formalood is the
1:42 am
legal position has britain must enact article 50. britain has to leave the european union and then and only can, according to the law, britain start negotiating a new trading relationship. if that were to be followed, and that is a hardball position for the european union, that means we would have a gap, quite a long gap before we find out what the relationship was and we will be trading on wto rules. i don't think that will happen. it could be waived. in europe, everything is possible. it shows you how uncertain it is and both sides are sitting out tough negotiations. anna: we are talking about article 50, the way we leave the union. there has been some signs that have talked about other ways of leaving. we have not heard about that
1:43 am
since the vote. they were talking about bill cash, if we just rejected european rules, we could just reject it and that is how we can exit. andrew: one of the most shocking things in this whole episode was the see the justice secretary who is responsible for upholding the rule of law advocating in an interview that we should break up international law. i'm flabbergasted by that. i understand that taking back control means you can do whatever you want, but if you do that, what law with the judges in force? with the civil-service be able, be proper for them to obey a government telling them to act illegally? if in theory we could say to europe we are off, but the
1:44 am
ourct upon business, upon image in the world is so great. i think in the end, we have to use the article 50 route. when heayling is right says we can delay in voting truele 50 and it is always that in dealing, negotiating with europe, you could go around the legal realities. will have, both sides a sensible negotiation. anna: david cameron saying this is going to happen, there will not be a second referendum, but there are many ways you can see something getting in the way of this. whether it is from the scottish parliament, a general election being called. you're assuming this happens? andrew: one must. i think the only way i could see it not happening is a general
1:45 am
election where the labour party and the liberal democrats put in their manifestoes we don't think we should leave europe. if by that time, remorse has set in and the financial markets are in meltdown and the impact to britain was so bad the public sentiment has changed, you could see labour winning the election on that platform. that would trump the referendum results and we would not leave. i would not put much money on it. anna: thank you for joining us. andrew cahn. up next on the program, as u.k. financial stocks either biggest three days and currency since 2009, we see what mark carney is doing. ♪

1:52 am
move. there is some talk in the market that possibly brexit could still be avoided. that is supporting the calls we are seeing this morning, but i think most scenarios are too concern for investors to cancel the move. we think we break below 1.30 and go anywhere between 1.20 and 1.2 5. that is what we're looking at. anna: there seems to be a general call in markets and some of the thinking is maybe this might not really happen, although political voices say it will happen. the other thing in the markets seems to be increased expectations from stimulus. and the ecb or the fed, the bank of england. what is your expectation around any kind of extra stimulus?
1:53 am
ancent: let me say it is not even moment. it is a slow-moving train. it will create negative shock on the economy at a time where already the global economy was quite weak. it is going to sink more slowly. we have seen some tensions, but it is quite limited compared to what we saw in the past. crisis.liquidity i think the central banks know that they have been there before and know how to manage such a situation. eurozone,in the excess liquidity. i think from that front it is different from questions we had in the past. i would not expect a massive policy response and that is something that actually worries investors. the central banks do not have a lot of room from here to act. some of them had room like the bank of england via the fed.
1:54 am
whether they will use that quickly is not clear. i'm also worried by the fact governments do not have a lot of high.ecause the deck was in europe, we have quite a busy election season in 15 months. i think governments will not be very keen to make a move towards the different -- in germany, i don't think we are getting to see from them the acceptance of much more risk sharing between nations. that is a concern that will keep the mood quite subdued and negative. anna: we have elections coming up in the coming year or two in many places. talking about the bank of england, what is your expectation? some people say they will cut rates maybe not until next year once the data is really on the table. other people say it could be as
1:55 am
soon as next month. what is your expectation? vincent: the official line from the chief u.k. economist is the bank of england will cut only next year once all has settled a little bit. personally, i think the risks are very heavily skewed to a quicker move. it will not be easy to cut when sterling is falling fast. that will create inflation and the bank of england does not want to feed that trend but overall, given the extent of the economy shock, how shocked the banks have been, i think the risk of a fairly quick move is significant. anna: does that show up quite quickly in the data? vincent: i think so. the economy is all about confidence. when you have such a huge political inconsistency, we don't know what the future of
1:56 am
the partnership between the u.k. and europe is going to be. what we saw yesterday is the brexiters did not quite have a clean plan. that creates a lot of uncertainty. it is not a very conducive environment for investment, for corporations to invest in the u.k. anna: at the moves you have seen in currencies, does any of this look overdone? you are expecting the pound to but have some, other things been excessive? vincent: the yen has been the big winner. japan is the big loser. the government, the bank of japan will not be comfortable. what can they do? the doj meet a lot of internal resistance against cuts. i think the yen strength will fail. i will look for the dollar strength. anna: thank you very much,
