bit but not the kind of destructive selloff you would associate with record yields on the 30 year and the 10 year, what does that tell you about the shape of cash? theot just a story about u.s. economy, about the global growth outlook, in japan, yields less than 0.1% all the way across the curve, sparking a dash for the next highest yields, in europe, record lows, the european central bank buying are bonds, people looking for field, where will they find the yield, the u.s. market offering a significant premium for those investors. alix:, dover, 1.4%. good to see you -- come on over, 1.4%. good to see you. jon: the london papers in the u.k., boris johnson, brexit acuted.

the way to get credit into the economy and deal with the downside from the brexit story, i suspect we will see a basket, easing, fairly general, easing is on the table, we do not know which form it will take. jon: bank of england meeting andy results get more interesting. david weston, one month ago, no one knew about article 50 outside of the eu, now this document is the most famous 250 word document in the world. david: i carry around a copy with me. in case i have to refer to it. we have another look at the state of the chinese economy. to that we turn to jeff kearns in beijing. tmi manufacturing numbers came out, what did they show us? >> good evening from beijing, i wrote article 50 today, the manufacturing pmi came in on the nose of 50, the dividing line
between contraction and expansion, hitting estimates on the nose, that is a little bit of weakening, a little bit higher in the past couple of months, services look stronger, the newer economy was much from 53.p towards 54 that is what we look at any personal official look into the economy in june. , itlso got a private report showed more weakening, this is a -- smaller firms came down below 49, more weakness in that survey, the -- the old economy, factories are weaker and the services and the consumer economy are seeing a little bit more strength. david: thank you. alix: it is the start of the third quarter, a lot of movers

1962, thego back to lowest yields in history, we cannot go back farther but michael hartnett of bank of america put together a yield chart that goes back to 1790, it it shows that we had never had anything like this, even if borrowing to finance your education, i know you're an 1790, if abc news in you were using it to finance your education, you would take more than you would now. david: alexander hamilton was running the show. 1.4, 1.37? 1.3784. david: compared to what? of thisan explain all in one chart, you look at government bonds around the world, a question for investors, what will you buy -- the highest yield -- if you have indifference to where you are looking, yields low in other places you suggest people are
doing most of the by, the german yield, the ecb buying up, . jon: breaking news in the u.k.. planningof england easing the bank capital demands on the brexit vote, the decision set to encourage lending in a potential downturn, the bank of england said to announce this as early as next week, reversing a decision to boost the countercyclical buffer. in march of this year, the bank toengland raised the buffer 0.5 percent, for anyone not from the your with this, the concern at the bank of england that when there is a downturn, banks pull back on lending and when there is a boom the increased lending and the introduced a countercyclical buffer, in the good times, the banks caps on back and in the bad times they would be able to loosen the strings so to speak. it looks like the bank of england will ease that demand and reverse a decision that was
brought in in march of this year , the bank of england said to plan easing the banks capital demands after the brexit vote, therefore bringing down the countercyclical buffer over the bank of england, did i do that right? >> beautifully done. jon: a little bit of credit easing coming from the bank of england in the near future. david: it what i am curious about, this is a concession by a central banker that capital requirements do affect lending? we have had regulators from the fed saying it does not have any impact but if they are saying we want to give a buffer, are they saying implicitly, by reducing some capital demand, it will increase? >> possible, more psychological 70 levels of what we are talking about. capital held back is not capital you cannot lend. just the description of how you raise the money, you are lending out money from equity or from deposits as opposed to money
that you have raised from the bond market. alix: to the u.s., extraordinary measures around the world, it is not necessarily we are in a recessionary world in the u.s. which would be implied by the flattening of the yield curve, it is more a function of all of these other central-bank policies? problem, the st. louis fed chair was telling us the same thing, so must a man, -- so much demand which distorts thing, if you are savor or a pension fund manager, you have real problems, you there are others that say this could be a tailwind for the global economy and make it much easier for you to buy a house. david: thank you for being here. our economics editor. jon: coming up, much more on the bloomberg scoop and for digital easing at the bank of england and the big question -- post brexit playbook, the snp biggest three-day rally in more than four months, now down less than 1% since the uk's decision to
jon: from london and new york, this is bloomberg, the chart, barclays, up by 2.24%, the bank of england set to start easing banks capital demand following the brexit vote on friday, the stock higher, the bank of england looking to ease capital demands, potentially as early as next week, look out for that decision, the stock has moved in barclays, bank stocks moving in europe. pulling back some capital marks on the uk's lenders. joining is adam parker, morgan stanley chief equity strategist from new york, is this what you would expect from central banks, to pull back regulatory authority to ease some demands
around banks at a time like this? do not think that is surprising, there is a debate among u.s. investors about how the head will react, a couple of weeks ago, are you dovish or hawkish, now the consensus is the fed is on hold indefinitely, to million or 3 million in the u.k. deciding to leave has changed the fed tap, i think that is not the case, i think the fed will raise rates but we will see how things go over the next months. jon: looking at this from london and over to york with the financials in the united states and the way have they been hit come in make sense in the u.k. if there is a growth risk with uk's based lenders to be hit in terms of the lease, were you surprised that some of the reductions in bank stocks over in the u.s.? adam: i was heartened by
yesterday, yields going lower, you still saw financials react pretty well and finally people are saying, some of the positive results from sea car with the huge growth of shareholder, there are fundamentals back and mitigate some of the issues with the level of the curve. the financials are not pricing in a whole lot in the way of economic growth. if they go yields -- lower it will put a pressure on the financial but there are positives for u.s. banks which are clearly way better capitalized than european ones. david: on june 23, you came up with a note that you thought by the end of the year -- one year from now we would be at 2050 at the s&p, are you still there and have you get there? adam: i will logic, we think earnings can grow 4% this year and 4% next year, we have not changed that number, on february 10, we thought -- people that we
were stupid at 4% growth by the market went up and we have not this it, it if you go 4% year and next year and you trade at 16 times those earnings 12 months from now, that gives you around 2050 plus or minus where we have been trading recently. has ak the u.s. relatively better market than other places in the world any challenges on the year you want to pay for those earnings but i think earnings will grow as a best case in the u.s. david: what are the fundamentals, nothing close to that in recent quarters in terms of earnings growth. --adam: earnings growth it is unlikely the energy drag will be as substantial this year as last year, we should have some still went -- we should have some tailwind. at 105 and march of 2015.
rates, oil is the wildcard, likely that you will see some modest earnings growth against the backdrop of low expectations, part of the formula will be earnings could maybe grow in the next couple of quarters. alix: where you want to pay up for that safety, utilities in the snp are trading almost 20 times price to earnings, one argument is that they are expensive but i will pay up, bonding rise who are probably coming into the equity market because of the volatility or i have to look for value, which side are you on? adam: if you phrase it that way and have a choice between buying expensive or value, i think if those are your two choices, what you mean by value only works of rates back up, you can sit there and say, i do not buy expensive defenses, i wrote a note in 2012
call our expensive defenses offensive, this has been happening for four years or five years, still going on and rates are lower. the way you underperform is by being all high and mighty about valuations. and owning no defenses. you will only be right if rates back up, to go over utilities because when i look at what people are paying for when they want to buy defensive stocks, pay for low volatility are a we, low volatility earnings growth, bandate dispersion, narrow is good, paying for low stock volatility, when you compare the defensive industries, food, household project -- products, utilities, they are five, 6, 7 turns cheaper with the underlying fundamentals the same. i think i have to have some exposure to expensive defensive as a pm or i will underperform

banks a little more flexibility so they don't feel like they have to stop lending to avoid any potential losses. to --willhe reverse it make that much of a difference? >> the stocks indicate it will help a little bit. three month ago, the u.k. economy must looking a little bit better. the bank of england did say in march, when it raised this, it said, one of the risks out there was brexit. in brexit were to happen, it could endanger them. this is straight out of the playbook. they saw this as a potential threat and now they are reacting. be announced as early as next week, as we sit here, i reflect on the bank of england conference. there was a quote about the risk to bank profitability. do you think the focus is on credit easing? is that the direction we are
going? >> it certainly seems that way. he said they will do whatever it takes to support financial stability, to support the economy. this is one mechanism they have. the other mechanism is rate cuts and other things they can do. through the banking sector, this is how they encourage them to continue lending. yesterday you were on radio with me. talk about the ftse recovery. the banks have not. when you and i have a discussion, we were down 30% since the vote. story is about profits in the u.k., or something more sinister. what are you gauging from that? is it them trying to reprice potential profit in the u.k.? be abouts seem to that. said, we are not getting
questions about capital, but questions about earnings and other bankers have said the same. it does seem to be an earning story. earnings were challenged to begin with. you have a low rates. you have deals that coming through. now the fed come one more headwind -- now the fed, one were headwind. you have them lowering estimates for earnings. when you have that kind of long-term downturn, it can certainly weigh on bank stocks. jon: so big moves. on the bloomberg scoop. the potential that the bank of england could announce capital easing for some of the lending -- lenders as soon as his weekend. alix: does it actually work? michael hansen, bank of america, merrill lynch, senior economist joins us on the new york office. the potential easing that we may
see, does that make a difference? is this the potential to use? michael: it is one of several tools you will get out of the bank of england? if nothing else, it is positive from a sentiment perspective. giving the uncertainty around brexit, that is an important contribution. if you put it in the context and of tools, bringing rates close to zero and possibly additional qe from the bank of england, that suite will be beneficial. i don't think the bank of england has the full set of tools to offset brexit. alix: we heard from our party yesterday. the markets -- we heard from mark carney yesterday. have the boe has to certain of the kinds of stimulus. there is obviously, the main
discussion is both monetary and fiscal. the boe only has control over the monetary side. i think thatd, ultimately, we are going to see rate cuts. my reading was that carney opened the door to that and the markets reacted. a little less certain is whether we get qe. we will probably get that. could be what the bank of england could bring to their. on the fiscal side, there is an extremely large amount of uncertainty given the political situation in the u.k. it will be hard to imagine any fiscal action. david: michael, it is david weston. as a percentage of worldwide gdp is relatively modest. europe is another thing. what is the effect on europe and how more difficult as mario draghi's job to get those growth rates up to 2%?
>> it is more challenging. we do think that the net effect of brexit in our current estimate is to take .5% off your pain growth next year. instead of a slight pickup to 16, we will see a discoloration -- deceleration. this makes the job for mario draghi and the ecb more challenging. you will get more easing into the early fall. there will be extension of qe at the very minimum. we are in an environment where they have limited tools. it is probably not going to be able to stop the shock to the european economy an and it will have an effect. david: what kind of tools does mario draghi have at this point? are there more bonds he can buy? more classes of bonds? they areit is our view
not going to pursue further interest rate cuts. for the first round of easing. -- cuts for the first round of easing. that is been a less effective channel. more focus on qe. there has been discussion overnight on some using of the standards around qe to allow a broader bond purchase program beyond the t. -- beyond the capital key. it won't happen right away. but the view of the firm and european strategist, that is a likely outcome going forward for the ecb. alix: moving it lower so it can buy bonds as heavy yields. what does that do? ecb can buy more german bonds. what is the efficacy there?
michael: we think it will not be that channel, as it is a loosening. you will have the bank effectively buying super substitutes, meaning buying bonds from countries that really could benefit, for example, italy. that is the first route you go if that is easing the capital key. david: what about greece? bonds from greece possible? michael: i suspect it is possible. that is a separate set of considerations. isave not heard what the ecb having on that front. that may very well include find on the periphery, with a shock will be felt more acutely. stressoes that potential from a brexit, due to these kind
of actions, do they have the ability to mitigate it? michael: they don't have the ability to completely offset it. it will not resolve very quickly. central banks to have tools, but the set of tools is more limited than it would have been 5, 10 years ago now. that obviously is a concern. i don't think central bankers will sit on their hands. they will do with a. can -- they will do with they can. central bankers have shown to be innovative. i do think that gives hope for an offset. we do think the net effect, in terms of both the european and u.k. economies, will be immeasurable slowdown. alix: michael, great to have you. senior global economist. unbelievable mose and central banks getting creative.

let's start right there. how did this work, brexit, and the aftermath? >> i am standing on the floor and there are a few traders as you may be able to tell from the shot behind me. ago, thinking about a week this place was packed and buzzing with nervous anticipation. many pulled the plug's and took the day off. industry didchange hold up. the open that day went there he do, very smooth and wasn't half as volatile. i am a little bit surprised that trading all around the world has , and volatility has come back and is rapidly as it has. overall, it is a success for capital market infrastructure, but creating difficulties for
not just american companies, but companies and citizens all of the world. david: why do you think it worked relatively well? you said it was surprised at how well it worked. are we doing a better job? are you doing a better job? was this not quite the big shock some people thought in the beginning? >> my surprise was about volatility coming in. it wasn't that the exchange infrastructure has held up the does it his very resilient in the u.s. there was volatile trading last august. that crisis came at us in the dead of night. no one was anticipating. it everyone knew the brexit vote was coming. weren't preparing -- we certainly were preparing or it. everyone at the new york stock exchange and competitor exchanges were ready and done appropriately planning. -- did appropriate planning. david: one of the things that
struck me is it spiked on monday. it came down somewhat and then it came back up yesterday. what do you think account for that? is he getting ready for a long weekend, or something else going on in the markets? very interesting and there has not been one prediction. it was also the russell rebalance day. we knew that would be a big volume day. this week, we have been trying to predict which would be the big days. i got it wrong most of the time. but in a period like this, it is one of those that i am very appreciative that we don't have to cicada technology, but we have really good human beings over sink stocks prepared for witholume -- human beings stocks preparing for the volume. alix: one of the characteristics has been the asset prices.
what is the effect of that volatility in the market? >> there has been a whipsaw. many indices are right back with a were pre-brexit. in the u.s., volatility has come in dramatically. volatility is lower now than before the brexit vote. for my part, i am concerned about the u.s. ipo market, and that is a very at sign that we have seen volatility come in 40%. david: tom, do people thinking about ipo's not remember the sudden surge? >> they will get over it quickly if it comes in rapidly and stays there. what we have seen with volatility spikes are two forms. one, you see a volatility spike and it does not return to pre-spike levels. that happened in august and in
january and february. this one feels like a sudden surprise shock. up very, veryn much. speaking to ceos of companies that want to go public, we had a couple looking at launching roadshows next week and we will see if they pull the trigger. a july many hopeful of -- tom, today marks the second in the first half of 2016. as you look for it with your crystal ball, we have an ongoing issue with brexit. that is not over by a long shot. they have to go back and forth. we have a looming presidential election here. do you anticipate more volatility for the second half of 2016? tom: it depends on, certainty there is of those eventualities. it is that simple. if we get out of august, which is a slow period, and there is
great uncertainty about which president in which vision will be running the country, that will-volatility. it will slow down the ipo market at the new york stock exchange. if we come out of august and there is a great deal of certainty about the eventual winner will be, it could be a very active year and a less volatile trading environment. alix: what is the effect of investors? when they are worried about volatility, i was struck by e*trade and charles schwab getting hit earlier in the week. what is your take on that? investor, they care about, when i log on to my e*trade account, or swap -- four charles schwab, they want to see prices. they want to know with the bid and the offer is. that is price formation. the single most important thing we can do for the retail investor is motivate and incentive eight public pricing

game of thrones." jon: here in london, the real game of thrones and three characters, the leading campaigner is michael go in to andme -- michael gove theresa may being the front runners. what is the difference? what i hear from then -- >> gove was trying to differentiate himself from theresa may. interesting was what he said about the financial services industry. he was asked why he provided a scathing assessment. he said it was a critique of the financial services that are not working. he was critical of high executive pay. he says m&a creates no value.
he was talking about some practices today discredit apitalism and asked by bloomberg reporter, why would financial services to go around in london right now? gove is talking about more regulations. jon: we talked about what stories would be read. i said about the borst johnson story yesterday, maybe the title cuted. be brexita david: i love that headline. i would buy that book. i would like to read it actually. iswe know, jonathan, this july 1, the beginning of the second half of 2016. we thought we would go to julie hyman. julie: i wanted to look year-to-date cross profits. this is a chart that london did earlier looking cross asset,
what we have seen thus far this year. the big winner has been, commodities. the index up 13% this year. that is the white line, the one that is the highest this year thus far. and then the bond market, not surprisingly. everything has driven the bond down. this is global, by the way, not just in the u.s. and the developed world, but across the board. it is up 9% year to date. citigroup index of currencies is down .5% and globally, stocks, very little change the first half of the year. those of the peak and purple lines. getting back to today and the movers we are watching -- i wanted to bring it back to tesla and the story we have been watching this morning. this report there was a fatal accident involving tesla sedan, autopilotand the software that did not detect a
tractor-trailer and did not apply the brakes resulting in that locality. there are questions about this driverless technology and what it means, not just for tesla, but more broadly. then we are looking at european automakers. an index growing at the fastest pace in six months with a reading of 52.8 in june. that is one of the things feeling the rally here in european stocks. we will be getting the number for the u.s. later this morning. we got vw, porsche, fiat chrysler all trading higher. sales also will get auto for the month of june in the u.s. david: i am looking for to that. i love cars. thank you, julie. now it is time for an update on news outside of the globe. >> loretta lynch has moved to defuse a controversy over hillary clinton and her private e-mail server.

10 year treasury yield will go to 1.5%. were around 2.2%. 1.4% -- weing now i are trading now at 1.4%. steve major joins us around the table. you are very, very modest. call oneasuries -- that treasuries was spot on. we always say are you going to adjust the call? have you seen anything this past week suggesting that you will do that? was 3.25%.consensus it was quite a dramatic forecast. i never believed the fed was going to hike in a conventional manner. the rate hikes did not stick, did they? we're not talking about rate
cuts. i don't think it is time to chase the yield much lower. sorry about that if you thought i would come on and give you a new number. [laughter] stephen: let's be realistic. the yield in the u.k. are at comfortably 1%. 80 basis points this morning. the treasury is below 1.5%. a lot of this is a knee-jerk reaction. i am of the opinion that looks at the median implications of brexit and everything else. blamingveryone is everything on brexit. weather is bad because of brexit. people are kitchen sinking. every excusest has to downgrade their growth forecast. many companies are downgrading their earnings. you can't blame it all on brexit.
so, we have not had any data yet. i am thinking that yields could go of it lower, but realistically at the end of this year, are we going to be much lower? probably not. jon: four our audience, your framework, if you look at the components of bond yields and say, here is the inflation component and here is the term premium. you did it turface amount of work on the term. premium. premium. are you thinking the world more structurally? premium ise term, gone and will not come back any time soon. for the term premium to be priced back in, we need a change of things like central-bank buying bonds. it central banks were to stop buying bonds, and even stop reinvesting, then that might impact it. but that is not want to happen. or something else we cannot expect. someone pulling a trick
somewhere, canceling debt. that is the kind of thing can do it. it will not be term premium. in the u.k., it will be inflation. playbook comes true, if your currency. percent, maybe 50%, there will be important implosion. the bank of england will be helping with this increased inflation. the forwards looking close to 3%. we are forecasting it could be nearer to 4%. what does it mean for bond markets? it does not necessarily mean that the yield testicle up. necessarilypoint -- mean that the yield will go up. it probably points upward. it is more than that. inflation.

♪ david: this is "bloomberg ." i'm david weston. steven major in london. we want to move across the channel to europe. what the people of great britain last thursday did not make mario draghi's job any easier. if you are sitting in his chair, what do you anticipate the are looking at? steve: well, further easing in some form or another. we have looked at the idea that they could cut the rate of it further.
that is the -40% rate. they could alter the pattern of the purchases and has been speculation about that this morning. but ultimately, they will have to do more because they will look across at the u.k. easing and look at the sterling move versus the euro. there has to be an economic impact on the u.s. economy on what is happening in the u.k., and it is not a good one. it requires a policy response. alix: it requires a policy response. what does it mean for a refill spread -- what does that mean for peripheral spread? should portugal be at 3%? you have to take into account that the circumstances are special. the ecb is by a large portion of these bond each month. early this morning, there was talk in the markets about the capital key purchases being
adjusted, so there would be more buying of italy, and less line of germany. there was a dramatic move in the italian bond market. not as if the italian bond market is being driven directly by the economic data in italy, or even the wider eurozone. it is been driven by the expectations of the unconventional policy that is being deployed by the ecb. bondsi know you are a guy, but you mentioned a 1.5% on the 10 year did not mean a wipeout and stocks. do you feel stocks are reflecting what the bond market is telling us? steve: well, yes. stocks are really being influenced by the outlook for reach -- for rates. and how the stock markets have done so well after the shock of last week's vote. it is more about the outlook for rates than it is about the
outlook for the economy. how sustainable that is, is a completely different question. logical witheem yield being squeezed out of the fixed rate markets, that investors will go somewhere else. typically, they are going -- jon: i want to get your final thoughts on what could happen with the ecb and bring the bond curve. i have two lines -- 10. lines, one is zero. you see it out about seven years. anything below that line, the ecb under current roles cannot by. what adjustments do you expect them to make to loosen those rules? steve: strictly speaking, that -40 is the deposit rate. what was said in the document back in march 2015, the ecb permits buying down to the
deposit rate level. it permits buying. it is not prohibited buying below. it does not take very much to imagine how we might move to a world where buying bonds through their. the other thing they could do is change the quantum the purchases compared to gdp. jon: steve major of hsbc, global head of fixed research. he is a happy man the summer. i won't tell you why. sterling, a week on from the biggest drop ever. ♪

global news 24 hours a day, powered by our 2400 journalists in more than 150 news bureaus around the world. i'm shery ahn. this is bloomberg. from theweek on historic decision to leave the european union. wasfall in the fx market the biggest one-day drop ever for sterling. here's how the pound has performed over the last week. a recent drop up in the last 24 hours. mark carney suggested the central bank may need to need -- may need to ease monetary policy in the coming months. running me now is hans redeker from morgan stanley. -- joining me now. the boe is set to do more. the consensus is downward adjustment. where does morgan stanley stand on these things right now? hans: we called sterling running limitedrofile that is
upside and significant downside. that had to do with the deficit of 7% of gdp, most caused by the balance -- all of this has been further emphasized by the decision to leave the market. next is the cyclical acc aspect. we have a situation where the market is now expecting for the next 55 months the interest rate level tuesday at current levels. that implies that sterling does not offer any yield nor nominal yield. there is something in addition to that. currency markets are driven by real return and real return differentials.
inflation expectations are rising in the u.k. that means you have two aspects on the cyclical side which are negative for sterling. rising inflation expectation and that actually means the real yield differential is becoming very destructive. how do you trade that? ,'ve heard people who said ok we see the euro as a surrogate may substitute for sterling, a quiet sigh sterling short. -- quasi-sterling short. is anou have in europe haveonment where banks lost the capability to export capital. that means the euro is getting higher because we are not having
a situation where we can create a counterbalance. point, iustrate that love that call, you are long in a short-term euro pound bi. european minus u.s. real five here,ield, the white line that is moving higher. the euro-dollar currency continues to grind o a little lower. what snapback will we see to close that gap? we have to understand why real yields are going higher. it has nothing to do with better european prospects or better productivity gains in the euro zone. it has to do with inflation expectations falling at the inflation rates.
it is pushing the currency higher. where is the pressure going to come out? i think it may be the equity market. it puts the monetary authorities in a difficult position. monetary authority tries to weaken the balance sheet but does not have the instrument anymore. david: the aftermath of the brexit really affected the fx market. what puzzled me was the emerging-market currencies. they did not react as violently as most of the developed markets. why is that? hans: the answer is relatively simple. what we have seen so far is the absence of trade affecting the cost of brexit. activities, global ,hey will be centered in europe
making the u.s. fed a bit more cautious, but it does not do anything to the emerging-market .orld in the emerging-market world come you still have real yields. going higher, silver going higher, commodities going higher, equities going higher. you see bond yields going lower. that means bonds are higher, too. is it sustainable and how long will this take? normally the financial contagion is frontrunning the trade aspect. yields staying low for a prolonged period? how much does it undermine the european bank business model? what does it mean for
repatriation of assets back into the eurozone? which makes the euro unpleasantly strong. response, that happened with the g20 meeting in shanghai. we had an emphasis on monetary that fiscalearned policy is not burdening too much the, that may have impacted way of putting everything on the shoulders of central bankers. at negative interest rates. that means you are looking for the alternative. i wouldn't be surprised if this talk about coordination of activity that we are talking about a bit more fiscal and a combination with monetary, does that do the trick? i doubt it. in japan, it did not work. jon: good point. hans redeker, thank you very much for joining this program. a lot to think about.
alix: now to today's morning meeting. from jefferies joins us from london with his outlook on oil. you have barclays looking at $40 oil in the third quarter. in part because of some brexit risk. what you see? jason: there is some brexit risk here but it is containable. oil is well supported around the $50 level based on the fundamentals. exit that puts a moderation and demand growth, but europe is not an energy intensive economy and the slow down there only moderates growth. alix: demand growth was waning a bit. prices now, prices in the future were coming down a bit. was there already some weakness in the market before the systemic risk of brexit?
jason: one thing that had been playing out in the market, there was production shut in canada as a result the wildfires. that is coming back online. that was putting small negative pressure on prices. we have seen a tremendous flattening in the curve over the course of the last couple of months. islatter futures curve telling us the market is coming into much better balance and the expectations are for tighter conditions as we move forward. alix: that is a supply story. surprised me was the demand story. the buyers of oil rest in asia and china. 's impact onfx path oil demand in china? a strongere is negative correlation between u.s. dollar and the price of oil. we are expecting demand growth of 350,000 barrels a
day in china. emerging-market risk from a strong u.s. dollar could be 200,000-300,000 barrels a day lower demand growth. david: we always focus on china. rightfully so. but what about india? how fast are they growing? could that take up some of the slack? jason glenn india is growing leaps and bounds right now. they could generate more demand growth this year than china. there is a 9% growth level. china is growing at a 4% rate. india is taking over leadership in terms of demand growth.
this also extends to other southeast asian economies. tremendous strength and demand growth in places like indonesia, malaysia, the philippines and vietnam. alix: you touched on non-opec supply coming down. nigeria and canada -- we are seeing some of that oil come back online. nigeria might have a cease-fire. what is the downside potential? give us the target. jason: we look at the non-opec supply being driven more by the u.s. and some latin american countries. if you have the combination in non-opec supply coming back online and demand weakness, you get a $43 type of level. event --a transitory you have a strong support for crude oil prices by the fourth quarter at two dollars a barrel.
to plan easing capital man's after u.k. decision to leave the european union. bank stocks here in the u.k. rallying on the potential of some capital easing. has come back down, trading 1.5% higher. rbs is to lower on the session, down by 1.86% here in london. chris, from what you hear from our story today, give me the calculus there. back in march, they lifted the buffer to 0.5%. dropping it down to zero, does that change anything to these fish for these banks -- does that change anything for these banks? chris: i been impressed with what he's doing. here's another move to makes her the banks are able to continue to look after the real
economy regardless of what happens in the next 12 months. jon: what he suggests today really fascinated me. potentially negative rates damaged bank profitability. became from him at a time when people expected rate cuts. from what you heard, will there be much more emphasis on credit easing? will the emphasis be helping banks? chris: it will be a cocktail at measures. pushing down to be to get growth going but will have inflation coming with the decline in the sterling. he has to think about how he balances that. he will hurt bank earnings by --hing rates into negative he's giving more capacity to be active in the real economy.
it's about balancing earnings with the real economy. the: take a look at bloomberg, looking at park place that versus barclays stock. .he white line is the debt -- looking at barclays debt versus barclays stock. chris: these stocks are down 30%. if you think earnings will go down that amount, i would be really shocked given the kind of recession we like to go into. it builds insubstantial problems in the mortgage market, the consumer lending market. quite frankly, i don't think that is the case. it is a profitability issue. banks have been facing, it's difficult to generate revenue. david: before brexit, the banks
were not having an easy go of it. there was limited growth come interest rates were locomotor's a challenging time for them. low, itest rates were was a challenging time for them. who are the people in position to take market share and take advantage right now. chris: i spent most of my time looking at u.s. banks these days . there are some winners. in the u.k., there's been talks of challenger banks taking share. the challenger banks were the market is most concerned, the traditional mortgage market, which is making people uncomfortable. whether they can take share or whether there will be share for them to take is another question. david: what about the swiss banks? chris: good point.
credit suisse is going through the kind of turmoil that barclays is in rethinking their investment banks. in terms of capital rules and the week capital market revenues ak capital market revenues. they are facing those problems. still strongre players. capital position will enable them to continue to take share in the above management industry. people will probably take a lower risk -- jon: deutsche bank down 19%. on the back of that brexit vote. the peripheral banks taking a beating. the italian government set to step in and get a waiver over eu state aid rules so they can
inject cap into the system. are they using the crisis as an excuse or are they very concerned about the state of their financial system right now in italy? chris: the one thing we've governmentsulators, learned a lot in 2007. all of them are trained to be proactive. -- trying to be proactive. nobody wants to go back down that road. they are going to take that bazooka. who has the hardest job right now? regulators in the u.k. or the eurozone? chris: the eurozone. jon: great to have you with us on the program. next up, battle of the charts.

which brings into question the rally we've seen in the s&p over the last few days. the same thing happened with the ftse 100. brings into question the rally there as well. --ie: even when the s&p 500 usually, the s&p would be up and would be down. -- jon: ill vote for will vote for hillary clark. i found the chart. for julie.voting julie wins. ♪

abigail doolittle at the nasdaq. julie: i want to bring you some breaking news on fiat chrysler which has just come out with its june sales. they rose by 6.5%, lower than the 8.9% estimated by analysts. shares are hanging onto gains for the moment. we will keep track of them. nissan missed estimates. we should be hearing from ford and general motors within the hour. i want to get some perspective here. take a look at the bloomberg and what we have seen over the past six sessions here for the s&p 500. i'm looking at the intraday movement we have seen here. we had that rally last thursday going into the u.k. vote, then the tumble, than the
increase this week, 6%, setting up to be the best week for the s&p 500 going back to november. we are .7% below last thursday's close. futures.k at the in the u.s., we saw some weakness in futures overnight. since then, we have seen them strengthen back to little changed at this point. a tossup as to where we will be at the open. we've been talking about tesla all morning. this crash that occurred in florida on may 7 involving the autopilot feature. the driverless feature of a model s sedan. not detect a did tractor-trailer.
shares not taking much of a hit, down .8% this morning. netflix stands out this money. shares nicely higher come international -- nicely higher, international subscriber growth. international subscriber growth could be strong. this is important because the international growth could offset the more modest growth domestically. the company has put up a couple sloppy quarters in a row. netflix come of the previous in the pudding when they report on july 18. netflix, the proof is in the pudding when they report on july 18. apple is said to be looking to streaming service, tidal.
analysts looking for a big turnaround in micron. the company reported their second quarter mixed quarter ,/guidance for the full year -- slashed guidance for the full year. we will have to see what happens here for last year's worst stock in the nasdaq. let's head over to europe. mark: stocks in europe rising for the fourth consecutive day. the european benchmark is up by 7.6%. that is the most since february. by a cumulative 10.8% -- the biggest four-day rally since 2008. we are at an august high after the biggest two-day drop since august. come up by ftse
3.3%. the best-performing developed market in august as well. we have mark carney suggesting we will get a rate cut in the next few months. that is pushing the pound lower, that is boosting those companies, those big benchmarkers who derive a big portion of their earnings from abroad. put the 250 down by 5.6% since friday. -- ftse 250. this is the british pound index. we still have not recovered those losses. the six-day decline of 10.5%. on sunday, sitting on today losses of 11%. losses of 11%. we've got new lows in london, new lows in paris. year at a record low.
is the ecb going to change the way it buys its bonds? look at outstanding debt. spain and italy have a lot of debt. alix: it has been an unbelievable story. that rally in global bond yields. joining us is the deutsche bank chief mobile strategist. the main driver of this enormous rally -- there is one catalyst, market expectations for what central banks are going to do. if you start with the u.k., we've got the shock, the bank of england singh yesterday they will use over the summer. -- saying yesterday they will ease over the summer. look at what the banks have done in japan, the ecb, the fed, they are all correlated. the main reason yields have gone
down is the market is internalizing the central bank reaction function. we are talking about rates premiums aree risk on the wrong side. alix: the bond risk premium is actually negative. you are paying for the right to hold bonds over the longer term. without any compensation for that risk. david: going back to 2002, they were way up and now, negative. what i would point out is if you think about the 10 year treasury yield as market expectations of short rates come in the u.s., the market has priced out any rate hikes over the next three years. think about the 10 year yield as a short rate and the risk
premium, the risk premium is now -90 basis points. that is a historic low. if you were to be buying the u.s. 10 year yields here, you are buying that the fed is not going to raise rates for three years, maybe longer. that seems very extreme to me. jon: is the market view right now that central banks are successful and that is why yields are so low or that it is a failure? stimulus has not generated any inflation expectations. >> i am definitely in the latter camp. notral-bank easing of rates always but certainly over the last few years has not really been stimulus, it has been a tax. that is a longer discussion we could have at another time. the simple fact why bond yields
have fallen, the markets are internalizing with the central banks are going to do. move, theother curve and the s&p. you had people adding on hedges right before the brexit. spiked while the s&p was around record highs. what kind of juice do we feel now? david: the sudden bounceback. i want to talk about this. how much of the correction is simply technical? people saying it is not as bad as we thought. >> it is largely technical. it is important to keep in mind those go things. -- two things. , the equityto shock
market is pretty quick to price it in. you get a steep drop and it comes back gradually. wehave a situation where think medium term beyond the transition, there will be a slowing of growth in the pound, but it's not as big a deal as the market action. as -- to come back just it is usually the second leg is much flatter. this time, it is symmetric. that is largely technical. , peopleas a tail risk take positions in the options market when the tail risk is realized to make money. to cash in on the option. that requires buying and going the other direction. let's get beyond the technical and fundamental -- we
are at the midpoint of the year and the fundamentals, what do you project, what will they look like? and given where we are, it is back to the u.s. macro data and most importantly, i would say earnings in a couple of weeks. comes outtor that this morning, the manufacturing pmi, we're looking for a continued turn off the bottom in december. all the negative data surprises we saw in the u.s. with manufacturing turning down, bottoming in december, my expectation is it will be a leading indicator in the u.s. our thesis has been the earnings recession we've had four four quarters of negative growth is largely reflecting the macro drivers of the dollar, oil

people getting into the back of their car as the car continued to drive down the street. they may changes in early january to make it a little less reckless. the driver is in charge of the vehicle, supposed to keep his or her hands on the wheel. if they take them off, the car will start beeping and eventually slow. they are still responsible. this is not full autonomous. this is not the google car or robot car of the future that does all the work. this is like advanced cruise control. it allows the car to break or slow or speed up depending upon the setting. alix: why isn't the stock down more? tim: the details are still coming out. i looked through the accident report come at one of the interesting things is that tractor-trailer did not yield.
the investigation will be into who is responsible. at fault hereely if this was just a normal accident but with the driver have been able to stop -- would the driver have been able to stop? , whatas been the debate would happen after the first fatality? it was inevitable. look at normal driving, people die on a routine basis. this technology would be at least safer and maybe reduce those accidents. david: all the auto companies that cadillacing is supposed to come up with a similar sort of modified autonomous driving early next year. what possible ramifications will this have for gm, ford, other auto companies? tim: tesla surprised the market where sgm has been working on it

specifics rather than talking generalities and talk about a specific drug. keytruda is in the immuno oncology area. explain what in the is, what it can meet people with cancer, and what the drug is. immuno oncology is something that people have been looking at for many years. body'sgents allow the own defenses to attack and defeat tumors. we have been studying keytruda across 30 different tumor types. it is one of the first agents that has the promise of being a broad-spectrum agents across many different kinds of cancers. does this have the potential to replace chemotherapy as a replacement -- therapy? >> it certainly does. in andied keytruda
important subset of lung cancer patients. chemotherapy, while it has benefits, also has tremendous side effects. what the study showed is if you compared a population on keytruda to a standard care of chemotherapy, keytruda did better providing protection against progression of cancer and overall survival. now you have a drug that has fewer side effects that is much more effective for an important subset of lung cancer patients. that is revolutionary. david: give us a sense of an arc of a drug like this. 30 different tumors you are testing on. when did you start, and how long are you in the process? >> we have gotten to market three and a half years after we first dosed a patient with keytruda. we could immediately see the impact on tumors, so we are rushing to try to get this drug to as many people. we have to study tumor by toomer. david: vucevic on clearance for
so far? >> melanoma, and second line and non-cell lung cancer. we are looking at head and neck, classical non-hodgkin's lymphoma. we are looking at a number of important different cancer types. we will have many filings over the next year. david: how big could this be in terms of number of people affected? >> it is hard to say how high the ceiling is because, in many ways, we are trying to figure out which tumors it does not working right now. we are very excited by the possibility that this could be a broad-spectrum agent against many different malignancies. david: give us a rough sense of the investment required. how much do you invest in order to get to market with a drug like this? >> every year we spent about $7
billion worth of research in all of our categories. billionocket, about 2 dollars for keytruda. david: that is quite the investment. it really is, and it gets to the point that we have to have a serious conversation in this country about the health care system. david: how much would a does it approved, for a customer or health insurance company? year melanoma, $125,000 a for keytruda. if you actually have it administered in a hospital, it will cost more because it has to be infused, and have to pay for the hospital charges. of course, then there are rebates negotiated by the payers that we work with. david: how can our society deal with that issue? a promising drug that could save lives, transform lives. on the other hand, we have 17%
of our gdp going to health care. trees cannot grow to the sky. at one point do we need to say we cannot afford that? >> let me make a point about health care expenditures. everyone realizes there is a significant amount of waste in the system, and we have to figure out how to get the waste out of the system. keytruda does not fall into that category. i think the debate about health care today is polarizing. i think it falsely picks up pharmaceutical companies against society. society needs these drugs. the reality of the world is, if we don't have a sufficient return on investment, we will not get a significant capital we need that we have to put up for a significant risk for a significant period of time to continue research. david: is that message getting through to the populous overall?
you look at the political race for president and it does not appear that either candidate particularly loves the pharmaceutical industry. why is it that people and politicians do not have an appreciation for the contributions? >> i think most people who i encounter really do think what we do is important. i think there is a legitimate conversation that needs to be had about how we make health care more affordable. unfortunately, in the heat of the political season, the discourse around pharmaceutical pricing, just like a number of issues, becomes overheated. i hope that when we finally select a president, we can focus on what works for our society. david: i will not ask you to pick a president today. >> thank you. david: david: from what you know, would it make a difference which candidate wins? >> both candidates have very of -- various parts of the platform which are not good or
competition and patient access. david: let me go back to keytruda and how this fits in with merck. potential upside, but there are also some competitors in the marketplace. there is an alternative the drug out there. how much of a limit could that put on the rise and revenues for merck from keytruda? of it that way. there are a lot of patience out there that need these medicines. i do not see as being in competition with these companies . we are competing against this horrible disease. cancer takes too many people too young. there is anpective, opportunity for these companies to contribute to society. that sounds terrific, but at the same time, you must feel pressure. s go off on your drugs, so you need a certain amount of new drugs coming on board.
what is the swing between success and failure? that gets back to what i was trying to say before. our business is primarily about failure, in that we are trying to invent new matter. let's talk about alzheimer's. david: i know that is close to you personally. >> absolutely. my father has the condition. many people in the u.s. do. if you get to be 85, which most of us hoped to be, you have a one in three chance. in 2050, this will cost our society north of $1 trillion. this is an important area that has been replete with failure. 200 failed studies. david: why is that? there has been a lot of money and effort put into this yet we do not seem to be making progress. >> i think we are advancing the state of knowledge about the human brain. it is a tough area but we feel good about the hypothesis we are
testing with our drug. david: most people, i think, amyloid, producing the the plaque on brain cells. there is some question whether that is the wrong route to go down. if it turns out that is not right, will that have a chilling effect on overall alzheimer's reacher's -- research? that this is the dominant hypothesis right now, and if this is not in the disease process, it may be many years before we discover an agent which will be disease modifying. david: i wonder about potential acquisitions. are you looking at other companies that you might acquire that would fit within your portfolio to give you some help on those new medicines? >> we are. as good as the research has been historically at merck, and we are 125 this year, no one company can produce
enough import drugs to support themselves. we have to look at to scientific innovation. we are looking at companies across various therapeutic areas, sizes, but we are looking for value creating opportunities. david: when you look at your dashboard running merck, what is the most sensitive thing you look at to determine whether you are succeeding or failing? >> the environment in our laboratories. can we recruit and retain the very best in scientific talent? i just want to close by saying this is an exciting, unprecedented time in human biology and medicine. i think it is really important from the standpoint of society that we have sensible conversations about how we can have affordability for today's medicines and access to tomorrow's medicines. david: thank you so much, ken frazier, chairman and ceo of merck.
, but a test of monday's low would not surprise. looking forward to chatting with him. and we have somebody from moody's on puerto rico. rules, chairman of formulae, and the latest political news. 25 seconds. jon: looking forward to that. in the u.s., stocks in positive territory. abigail: the nasdaq is slightly higher. weak performance in chip stocks including qorvo and qualcomm. appear that apple is the reason for the decline. skyworks and qorvo were looking at a downgrade. one analyst said that he thinks the second half will be muted. on qualcomm, another downgrade at a record.
the analyst downgraded the share to a hold. half --s the second there will be a lack of catalyst in the second half. interestingly, we had a week quarter from micron. they slashed their full-year guidance. isloomberg analyst says it apples to oranges and the dram pricing at micron is actually turning around. alix: it was quite a week since britain is historical to leave the european union. the unexpected decision through markets into chaos. let's take a look at the week that was. >> we are waking up to a whole new reality. >> these guys have been here trading since 8:00 p.m. >> financials will be front and center. >> the british people have made a different decision -- made a clear decision to take a
different path. is the 10 are seeing year guilt moving below the 1% level. we have not seen that ever. >> we are meeting just a few days after a very painful and regrettable decision from the citizens of great written -- great britain to leave the european union. we do respect his decision, of course, but it will have to be sorted through and its consequences. >> if we do not come to a grown-up trade deal between the united kingdom and the eurozone, it will hurt the eurozone. the ftse has just erased is post brexit losses. >> there will be no negotiations u.k. until under the it notifies its intention to withdraw. we ought to seize this moment
and stand tall in the world. that is the agenda for the next prime minister of this country. i have concluded that person cannot be me. tuesday morning. what is the asset classes you will be watching to show you what the world is thinking? >> i would be a little bit cautious over the next couple of weeks. we are basically about two weeks away from earnings season. i would argue the s&p 500 is still the key barometer of risk appetizing the world. a littleng to be unsteady up until we get earnings. key driver of the u.s. equity market the last few years has been u.s. corporate buybacks.
as we are now in the earnings blackout period, they tend to go into low gear. i would be a little bit cautious, i would watch u.s. equities. as we talked about earlier, a sharp bounce back to where we are. if you look at other indicators of how the market is positioned, we have the overlay of even lower rates. that has had a big impact basically on how the different sectors have performed. 500 looks like it is back to where it was, one level below, it tells a different story. the rates are reflected in there, and that performance has not really been pleasant for active equity fund managers. world hard to remember a before we were all consumed with brexit, but there was such a world. in that world, the topic was global growth.
as you look out to the second half of the year, what are the likely sources of global growth? >> the answer to that is simple and short, the u.s. the u.s. was the key contributor and driver of the global growth up until 18 months ago when we got hit in the prior six months with a very large and severe shock of the dollar going up at the fastest pace ever and the consequent collapse in oil prices. i believe we are the tail end of that risk. i am not a great believer in secular stagnation, so i think growth comes back and a narrative changes. david: looking at the increase in the dollar, is that all the fed? >> not at all, it was the ecb and boj, and i do not believe they have taken the responsibility yet. alix: a few weeks before earnings season comes out, we still have brexit uncertainty and the buyout blackout.
what is the best way to hedge your risk or the next few weeks? >> i don't think you want to hedge risk. alix: you do not want to buy the yen, gold? >> being long on the yen is a good trade tactically and strategically. i would not think of it just as a hedge for risk appetite or a done move. it would help, but i would argue , if you look at the japanese yen, it is being driven by lower gdp yield, contrary to the bank of japan's intentions. --is the banks intentions actions that are actually driving the yen higher. if you look at where fair value of the yen is, we should be in the mid-80's. a you have a driver, committed driver, the bank of japan, and evaluation, i would argue it happens. i am long on the yen anyway. i do not think of it as a hedge.
jon: from london and new york, this is bloomberg . forward to ang long weekend stateside but it is jobs next week. to jim bullard earlier and he said there were two big things for the head, one was brexit and the jobs report. the last time around, it was terrible. no one expected brexit to happen and it did. the question remains, what does it mean for the fed? any significance in the near term? david: last time we thought the jobs number was so important.
this time it is even more important to see whether it was a blip or a trend. alix: last week we had initial jobless claims going down, which is a good thing. how does that jive with the job market? that will be key definitely. can see what is happening over there with the conservative party. let's have a look at what is coming up later today. usign ceo will be speaking to us. david: see you on tuesday. we have a long weekend. ♪
