5:01 am
lacqua in london with tom keene in new york. theave to talk about sadness of international terrorism and then we look at the referendum and the fallout. tom: we will go to is been bill -- istanbul later and speak to an expert. if you did not know it was about brexit and the eu, you would think it is about someone arguing about the summerhouse. francine: we talked about metaphors with the divorce but there has been quite a bit of anger especially in london where 70% of the people voted to stay in. emotions are changing and we saw an emotional david cameron yesterday. let's get to the bloomberg first word news. blaming islamic state for the suicide bombing at the airport and istanbul. three bombers opened fire and blew themselves up after police
5:02 am
started -- saw them. 40 people wounded -- killed, 200 wounded. recent months, islamic and kurdish militants carried out bomb attacks in turkey. david cameron used his final european union summit to express regret over the brexit vote, telling final desk telling leaders you could have won the referendum if they have not refused to reduce immigration to the u.k.. the eu leaders said there could be no turning back for the u.k. get ready for a recession in the u.k. according to a bloomberg survey three quarters of economists polled say the british economy will fall into a recession since -- for the first time since 2009 and they believe the bank of england will add more stimulus and cut interest rates in the third quarter.
5:03 am
believe money market derivatives we are a long way off from the next fed interest rate hike. there is a greater probability the fed will cut rates. they do not have more than a 50% chance of a rate increase until 2018. in a speech in pennsylvania, donald trump ripped the pending transpacific trade agreement and --vowed to renegotiate deals with canada and mexico. global news 24 hours a day powered by more than 20 600 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. tom: let me get to the data. a new wants -- a nuance in the market, lower euro.
5:04 am
the vix showing an odd 17.81 in the volume list. sterling stronger, yen does not know where to go, and there is the headline. odd curve flattening off of without questioning safe haven moves into paper worldwide. francine: when you look at stocks we see the relief rally that was started yesterday continuing. the european stocks gaining. banks are gaining some 2.5%. let me get specific onto the banks. cut barclays, hsbc and others after the brexit vote but they fell by so much they are regaining a little bit of ground. tom: let's go to the bloomberg. surface of famed ovd sterling. what this shows on busy axis is
5:05 am
axis isty and time -- z volatility and time. there is a massive bet toward weaker sterling. it is rare to see this much of a curve, a smile, or a smirk right here on this bet. the message here is a huge bet, a one-way bet toward weaker sterling. francine: interesting because i chose something similar. basically this is the correlation. britain is grappling with its exit from the eu and the 30 day correlation between the pound-euro exchange and the europe stock 60 has reached the strongest since before the introduction of the single currency in 1999. tom: we have done too much mathematics in the last minute and a half. can we all go home? francine: let's, we have not had
5:06 am
enough sleep. is -- when you look at these currencies and the easingity that they are a little bit on the expectation how uglyl-bank policy ?s it going to get vasileios: i am not sure this easing is coming on the back of the central bank policy because there is a gradual easing. u.k.is much more a specific idiosyncratic event rather than an event that is happening, ramifications on a global scale. to see we are going gradually some normalization in risk assets. as far as sterling, i expect volatility pressure will
5:07 am
increase. francine: are the markets completely getting it wrong? certainly we are not expecting ,nything for almost 2018 now from the fed. >> you are referring to a situation where it has to do with monetary policy being on hold compared to being a big tighten where it is now. , i doot really believe not buy to the argument that the market is expecting a lot. tom: to summarize all of this mumbo-jumbo, there is a thing called epsilon. you arepsilon so great under the table doing nothing until things settle down, or can investors be opportunistic here given all the systemic risks and oddities? sony: it is a very binary that.
5:08 am
depending on how much confidence your understanding and reading of what is essentially a political risk situation, you can enter the market or not. given how leave and -- how little even insiders know and what the timeline is going to be, the safest assumption is to be on the sidelines. also going back to the earlier point that you were making about the markets normalizing slightly, i think that is partly due to the fact that the realization has dawned that nothing is going to happen really soon and that there is a reasonable chance, i would say even as high as 50%, that we may not actually see a brexit. the market is digesting that information that there is no particular prime minister candidate in the united kingdom.
5:09 am
not david cameron and possibly not yours johnson, who will likely pull the plug on article 50 and trigger a brexit, knowing certainly that it will trigger a , financial market turmoil, and a breakup of the united kingdom. tom: when you take the oddities of the market right now, how do you express a believe in sterling? do you use cable, do you use euro sterling, or do you have to use a basket trade if you are going to bet strong or weak sterling? vasileios: going back to what i have heard and then i will elaborate on that. the only issue i see with whether or not the article 50 will be triggered, regardless of what happens down the road, this injects a lot of uncertainty into the market and postpones
5:10 am
investment plans and consumer spending. the argument for a u.k. recession, even if the article 50 is not invoked, is not disappearing. from that respect i remain quite bearish on sterling. i think euro-sterling has plenty of upside largely because we are going to see a lot of reversal of this safe haven flow that we have seen during the eurozone debt crisis years. francine: thank you so much. both stay with us. we have a special interview later on bloomberg markets, erik schatzker speaks to blackrock ceo larry fink. and live from the aspen ideas forum. ♪

francine: welcome back to bloomberg "surveillance." francine lacqua in london, tom keene in new york. what's get straight to the bloomberg business flash. inra: economic confidence the euro area fell slightly on the eve of the brexit vote. economists had forecasted that consumer sentiment would remain -- same and conference confidence improved in the industrial sector. verizon will sell bonds backed by customer payments for mobile phones. bank of america is the lead underwriter for the $1.2 billion bond offering.
5:14 am
fidelio investors want to inject more money into passive investment so they are cutting fees on 26 index funds. their average ratio will go from about 11 and a half basis points to 10. investors are putting money into passive funds. that is the bloomberg business flash. francine: in brussels last night, david cameron used his last eu summit to express regret as european leaders said there was no turning back from brexit. >> britain should seek and europe should seek the closest possible relations over trade, over cooperation, over security. while britain is leaving the european union it will not and should not, and in my view it will not turn its back on europe. francine: there was renewed pressure to maintain article 50 and cameron maintains that is a
5:15 am
job for his successor. is the first time they talk without david cameron and the room. sony: that is exactly -- ryan: that is exactly correct. doing, theyhey are are sorting out what the role of the european commission, the executive arm of the eu that carries out the collective will of the 27 liters is going to be in the negotiations with the u.k.. that sounds technical but it is political. what the u.k. wants to say is this is a political matter and the politicians, not the bureaucrats will handle it. they are having a big think about the future of their own union and how to keep it together. tom: the cliche is everybody is on the same page. i do not buy it. how many pages are there to ?tand by
5:16 am
how many divisions are there within the continental eu? ryan: i think there are at least a few. there are some countries that would like to see the eu expand, some that think it is too big, some that would like to see deeper financial integration. who seem to germans be pushing for more of a political club. you have the eastern european countries that are more anderned about federalism they want to restrict the power of people so there is a lot of division. francine: ryan chilcote in brussels. he will be there throughout the day to bring us any updates. we are back with our guests. when you look at the eu, what kind of message, what kind of political leader -- and i'm thinking of angela merkel --
5:17 am
what could she do to make sure the u.k. comes back in? sony: what she has done so far is played her cards really well. she made it clear there would be no access to the single market, no u.k. being part of the single market without free movement of people. what it has essentially done is underneathed the rug the leave campaign because their promise of essentially was that we would be able to cherry pick, keep all of the good parts and the city will not be harmed while stopping immigration from the continent. a new prime need minister because nothing will happen before. i know there are rules and regulations. why can it not be accelerated? i think within the candidacy of the tory party they need to figure out, one thing
5:18 am
that became very clear after the leave campaign one was that there was no plan. to the extent they have been removed from the website, or absolutely pod in the sky. they need time to figure out what they want and there is a division where the conservative party within the parliament is pro-remain that membership is maybe more skeptical. there is a conflict that needs to be resolved and they need to figure out a position. tom: i know when you were in the london school of economics you took an introduction to the game of thrones. nicola sturgeon does not have three dragons. what is the lead bridge she had that leverage she has to advocate for scotland and brussels? i do not see it. ofy: the vision, the optics
5:19 am
her having meetings in brussels and starting preliminary negotiations whether they have any legal authority or not, is more than enough to essentially send the signal to the whole of the u.k. that a brexit is equivalent to a breakup of the united kingdom, and i think that is the best thing she can be doing for scotland as well as the u.k., and she will continue to press with ever greater urgency. hopefully this more than anything else will be the one thing that will still likely keep the u.k. in the eu because no prime minister, no british prime minister wants to press the red button when he or she knows that they will go down in history as the prime minister who elected the breakup of the united kingdom. tom: maybe it is a blue and white button in honor of scotland.

5:24 am
letter we all got yesterday. the managing director talked about the downgrade on the outlook for the 12 u.k. banks, writing, we expect lower economic growth and heightened insecurity over the uk's future trade relationship with the eu to lead to reduced demand for credit, higher credit losses, and more volatile wholesale funding conditions for u.k. financial institutions. when you look at the city of , i'm not sure if he is pitching his own and trying to get the business to go to france but he said the clearinghouses will be in trouble and financial transport is also in jeopardy. there is very little doubt in my mind the european union will play hardball with the u.k. in every conceivable dimension. as far as the clearinghouses,
5:25 am
that has been there for quite some time. the ecb has complained about some clearinghouses doing heavy work. vote do get the article 50 , that is going to give a lot of leverage to the ecb to say basically you guys are out of merger restrictions so i cannot allow you to do that. francine: what is attractive for a banker? with a move to frankfurt or paris? vasileios: i do not think it is an easy answer. think itget a brexit i is a process that will likely take a significant number of years. it could be split evenly or unevenly between all of these major cities, dublin, frankfurt, and paris. one thing to remember is that where we stand right now london still has significant competitive edge. tom: mervyn king was with us
5:26 am
yesterday. are you telling me erik nielsen is going to move to some place back on the continent? that is not going to happen, right? vasileios: that depends if there is a cafe nero. tom: i do not buy it. vasileios: about cafe nero? erik moving back to the comp does continent. -- continent. francine: we will be back in a couple of minutes talking about the stock market, and these are the banks year to date. ♪

5:33 am
state is losing ground in parts of the middle east. is there a correlation train what seems to be more and more attacks abroad and then losing ground? although you could situate this attack on a continue on with things that have been going on in turkey, it bears a resemblance to the tragic events of brussels earlier this year where in a similar fashion isis militants detonated suicide vests. the difference is that the istanbul airport has extremely there are checks going into the airport and another set after that. these attacks court made it, so it, --court made coordinated. tom: will this spring the nation together? is turkey so divided that an event like this cannot bring them together, or will it
5:34 am
actually coalesce political support in turkey? right: you are absolutely . one of the many sad things about this spate of terror attacks is they have only increased division in what has already -- is already a divided nation. in the wake of h-bomb, you will note that twitter and facebook gets locked as is the case at the moment, leading to a climate where it is a lack of information that breeds mistrust . that seems to be the case here, although there is some degree of consensus about who is responsible, which has not been the case before. there was finger-pointing at isis, the islamic state, and homegrown kurdish militants. francine: thank you so much for

5:36 am
and russia was a sign of this. as much as he has been trying to play a strong hand and sometimes being obstreperous in relation with neighbors, i think this will further consolidate his decision to try and make amends in a way that tourism, investment, and other forms of economic benefit that turkey can enjoy from partnerships will increase. that inudes also dealing with the eu. i think his willingness to compromise to get the deal going would actually have increased following the attacks. francine: i know you also look at security within the eurozone and eu. is there anything we can do? this looks like a copycat attack of brussels. this happened outside security and i have flown through istanbul many times. it is really like the airport of

even into negative interest rates, which has had very mixed results at this point, there is not much less there. francine: are you concerned that central banks will fail? peter: will fail in terms of -- francine: if we see a recession, let's see their -- let's say there is a recession brought on by brexit -- do they have the means to deal with it? peter: certainly not at the level they had before the last recession began. way below that. there is a little bit left, but clearly this is going to be a crisis that will have to be dealt with by legislatures, by fiscal policy. tom: you have a weak sterling call. i want to go back to your work at princeton a billion years ago as an undergraduate. on the current account deficit of the united kingdom, purple line, goods and services. then you add investment income dynamics.
6:08 am
this is an ugly line that the gloom crew put out there. how does a current account adjust, and does it adjust only through currency? peter: if there is anybody smiling right now, it has to be u.k. exporters. this drop in the town is going to pay off in terms of shifting the u.k. external balance back toward surplus eventually. it is obviously painful in terms of standard of living for the average u.k. citizen, but we are going to get the account moving the other way. tom: you and i learned that our oftbook currency is a form weaker destruction for the united nations. the queen is watching. peter: certainly in dollar terms, no question. tom: these are big adjustments. francine: the problem is that when you look at manufacturing, i would struggle to tell you what huge big manufacturers the u.k. has. it is only 20% of the national

economy. it is services they need to focus on. even with the lower pound, i am not sure how much that adds to gdp. any majort is true of developed economy at this point. services have become more important. more than., it is 80%. but there is clearly leverage in the manufacturing sector, in the goods sector, when you get this big of a shift in the currency. if it is going to adjust the external balance, it may not be enough to cool an economy if it goes seriously into recession. it may not be enough to pull it out. tom: let's come back on the u.s. economy. peter hooper with us for the entire hour, from deutsche bank. also coming up, michael mail will join us -- michael mayo will join us.

6:15 am
number one. i think cameron's message that had there been more flexibility on this we might not have had this outcome -- pretty clearly, a long sequence, but particularly in recent years, and very recently with what is happening in the middle east, etc. -- but this is issue number one. tom: and point number one on education in immigration, it helps potential gdp. is the united kingdom on a relative basis doing better because of marginal immigration into the nation? peter: the u.k. has been one of the stars of economic performance in europe, more broadly, and i think the growth of labor force due to immigration has been a factor there. certainly, yes, the u.k. does depend on immigration for part of its growth, so that side of things cannot be discarded either. francine: peter, can you see any
6:16 am
you that will benefit from -- an eu that will benefit? peter: it has been argued that the u.k. has been throwing sand in the gears here and there, but the u.k. has been a force for innovation, it has been one of the economic leaders in that sense. so this is a loss for the eu. francine: will angela merkel survive this? she seems to be the only leader with any kind of leadership sills -- with any kind of leadership skills? peter: i am not expecting any negative outcome on that side. but no question -- she said to herself, this is a loss for europe. tom: how would you mark down your estimates? what have you done, tweaks within the american economy? brexit,exit, brexit,
6:17 am
and yet have you tweaked your u.s. model? peter: we would love to be able to give you a number, but any number you come up with is going to be pick it and it will be changed anyway. people are calling for recession in the u.k. yesterday,om draghi half a percent of gdp over there. so our sense is this is counted in tenths of a percent of gdp for the u.s. it is not a major deal at this point. yes, there are risks. anything could happen in europe at this point. there are reasons for wanting to wait to see a little bit more. tom: there you go, francine. heater hooper dropping the crystal ball -- peter hooper dropping the rest of all this morning. peter: to give you a qualitative answer, it is going to be on the downside. francine: peter hooper there from deutsche bank.

6:32 am
it all ties into this issue of pass porting and whether london can remain part of the single market. that will determine how many .obs are moved to the continent that is why the banks are taking approach because a lot of it is not in their hands. it comes down to negotiation. francine: should they not move quickly? francois hollande was the last one saying that it would be unfair for london to keep this right. we heard from a german regulator, and i spoke to a german lawmaker early on saying this will not be a free lunch for the u.k. europe does seem to be taking a hard line here. that factors into the calculus if you are a banker of, what is the cost of waiting, what are the implications for passporting if rex it does happen. moving partsot of here. what is the demand and the
6:33 am
supply for office space and people in those cities? how easy is it going to be to move people? that is why i think even though some of the banks had contingency plans, it can be challenging to follow through with them. ofncine: there are plenty moving parts, but for the moment it is not looking great. for some of those passporting rights. michael moore, our head of finance in the u.k. tom: ira jersery of oppenheimer funds. many moons ago -- we like to start conversations with ira jersery sort of in a folk way. many moons ago, he looked for you lower -- for lower yields per he has gotten them. what does a distinguished by side firm do when full faith in credit is priced to perfection? ira: i do not know if it is necessarily priced to perfection. i think the low yield you're seeing in u.s. treasuries are a
6:34 am
byproduct of what is going on in europe. there was a concern by some that as you got to ever lower yields that u.s. treasury securities would no longer have the ability to be that safe haven in times of market turmoil. clearly, that is not the case. now with central banks likely not to hike, you said earlier in the show that they were priced to january of 2018, if memory serves, for the first funds hike. you are going to wind up with low yields, and 10-year treasuries are back to the lowest yields you have seen ever. tom: push against the gloom crew that say the world is coming to an end. we break through 100 basis points on the two-stem -- i call it the thin villa spread. ira calls it -- it screams doom and gloom. ira: the curve flattening is
6:35 am
seen as gloom and doom, but we have to know the context of that. when curves get flat, it is usually because central banks are hiking because interest rates are selling off. that is what we call a bear flatten her. you wind up with a -- a bear flattener. oftentimes a recession because of policy mistake. there is low yield because of already slow growth. an inflation outlook that is deteriorating now and we had been hoping for higher inflation and a more stable economy. that is perhaps not going to happen because of slowing growth globally. tom: dr. hooper, please, a comment. i was -- peter: i was going to add to ira's good summary, lower rates abroad are close to zero. negative in some cases, but out almostapan going

50 years, the government bonds, six, eight basis points, germany with maybe 40 basis points -- this is a shift to a country where there is still some slow -- tom: there is a pulse, at least. francine, jump in here. francine: i have a chart looking at global yields. the u.k. yields, below 1% for the first time ever. germany, the rate is the same. japan, we know the story there. it keeps going ever lower. my question for ira -- who knows how low they can go, or is it just a guessing game? ira: the limit ends up being whatever the monetary policy rate is. in places like japan and germany and europe as a whole, where policy rates are negative, i think long-term rates like 10-year rates may be bounded by that. that still means it can go lower. if they are really concerned about growth in europe, and
6:37 am
growth -- and growth in places like japan, there is no reason central banks cannot lower rates even further. tom: do you see negative rates transmitting through to the public, or are they still an institutional effect? peter: i think it is backfiring. look at the personal savings rate in the u.s. it has been going up in the face of an increase in wealth. this is because the average baby boomer looking ahead to retirement is saying, oh, my gosh, i was counting on 2%, 3%, maybe 4% on my investment now what is it going to be? i have to save more. so negative interest rates not only are creating uncertainty, but also i think backfiring in terms of going the wrong way. tom: peter hooper and ira jersey with us on a most interestingly gige of finance to economics. we are going to take it over to banking. joining us next, mike mayo. we will talk with him about the

i love your comment, "i love you, i hate you, i love you, i hate you." michael mayo, the u.s. banks -- are they going to lose jobs because of this crisis in london? michael: the u.s. banks have the worst revenue growth in 80 years before brexit, so there is no question banks need to control costs. you are going to be reducing jobs, compensation, and the fallout from brexit for the large u.s. banks would be the cost of doing business goes up, there are capital market headwinds, increased complexity, currency risk, and lastly, central banks for longer interest rates. tom: you're the only one i know who actually understands the derivation of the modern bank of america. 85 mergers since 1910. within that is the idea in the u.s. we can do m&a activity in banking. would you suggest europe is going to learn how to do that? michael: u.s. banks have taken
6:42 am
their medicine, after the financial crisis raising hundreds of billions of dollars of common equity. thehad the stress tests entire decade, so in comparison the european banks did not take their full medicine and now they have this issue. with me, "i love you, i hate you." we get the part 2 results tonight. that shows the banks have the wherewithal to absorb many brexits. francine: it seems here in europe that we are not ready to consolidate, not because there is no appetite for it, but because of one regulator that will not allow for it because it becomes a bigger risk. the fed stress tests their banks individually. should they not do it as a whole? michael: the fed aggregated the stress test data last week.
6:43 am
last week you had part one of the stress test, if you will. on that asus, the aggregate data --icated that banks, after a on that basis, the aggregate data indicated that banks, after a severe recession with 10% on appointment, -6% gdp, stock prices declined by half. that is severe. after that the u.s. banks collectively would still have $400 billion of excess capital left over. that is resiliency. tom: ira jersery, give a briefing to -- ira jersey, give a briefing to michael mayo and peter hooper. will michael mayo's banks make any money? that because of the stress test and the regulatory environment, they cannot take as much risk as they used to it because they cannot take as much risk, they wind up with lower margins and lower

profits. message that it is a resilient bank of europe. if they go out and do a cash call under duress, can deutsche bank raise capital? michael: these are tough times for global banks, but the resiliency of the global financial system is better than it was a decade ago. does that mean everybody is safe? does that mean everybody made it? we are getting to the end of a quarter. we do not know where the damage lies yet. for the big global banks, we will find out at the end of the month. so far things seem ok. tom: francine, jump in here. francine: michael, what does that mean? where do you see deutsche bank? i know we need to wait and see and we need to say that about everything. but what kind of deutsche bank would you like to see?
6:45 am
not specifically covered deutsche bank. i have covered global banks for a few decades. these are jittery markets. there are a lot of unknowns out there right now. the moral is, raise capital when you can do it more easily. for goldman sachs -- goldman sachs had that fantastic year in 2009 after other banks were pulling back, and we thought the european banks would follow suit and raise capital when they could. storm,the heat of the raising capital, anything is possible for a price. overall, you are absolutely certain given the stress test that there is no severe, perverse linkage between the banks? that if something were to happen with one bank that we do not for see, it would not take the sector of the industry down with it? billion excess capital for u.s. banks after a
6:46 am
situation like the global financial crisis. as part of the fed stress test, they do assume the failure of a very large counterparty, so that is the model. the other thing for u.s. banks, the situation in europe is not a new one. the u.s. banks have been having fire drills the last five years, so they had better be prepared. if any u.s. bank really blows up, it becomes not just in earnings event, but it becomes a major balance sheet event. when the banks disclose that information, they sure the ceo submits his resignation at the same time. , peter hooper,s is the view from 35,000 feet. all of this discussion revolves around tepid nominal gdp. i do not know the conversation you have had with john cryan, but to a broader audience, do you just assume the animal spirit comes down with all we have seen in the last nine days, and makes it harder?
6:47 am
peter: no question we are in an uncertain period. tom: i just heard that from him, i do not need to hear it from you. peter: let's look beyond the near term for a little bit. let's look at what is happening in the u.s. economy. we are concerned because of a employment,down in but the labor market is doing pretty well. underlying growth is picking up. 2%,consensus seems to be 2.5% growth in the second quarter, and fundamentals say absent a surprising major problem in europe, we are going to continue to see growth in the u.s., improving labor market. we are already close to full employment. we are seeing signs of wage inflation beginning to pick up. price inflation is not too far away. the fed is on hold for now, but not until the end of 2017, early

2018. i think you will start to see movement in the curve, and that will be a better environment for banks going forward. aboutne: we were talking sub linkage between gdp and brexit, but i want to go back to mike. what does it mean for banks that are based in london, being a broad, or u.k. banks that may be affected by this financing passport system? michael: well, i could not catch the first part, but u.s. banks headquartered in the u.s. that do business in london will be moving jobs to other cities. you have seen that 4000 jobs might leave jpmorgan in london to other places, whether that is frank for or paris. -- whether that is frankfurt or paris. this will certainly be a loss. tom: let's come back. let me tell you, folks, this is
