stability in italy, this italian governors say state intervention cannot be ruled out. >> and tragedy in texas. five police officers are killed after snipers opened fire on law enforcement in the heart of allas. [captioning performed by the national captioning institute, which is responsible for its caption content and accuracy. visit] jonathan: from the city of london and new york, a warm welcome to "bloomberg go." i'm jonathan ferro alongside david westin and alex steele. another big show ahead of us. equity set for their biggest weekly drop from february. the attention shifts to the u.s. for that jobs report. david: and after those numbers come out, we'll have janice capital's bill gross on the program and telling us what he hinks the data means for
7:01 am
alex: markets are relatively calm. jonathan: and have been throughout the season. the ftse 100 down but about .1%. the d'backs in frankfurt, germany, performing pretty solidly on the continent. across the continent, the futures firmer by about five points. i went through the other boards for you. dollar yen, 149. close to breaking 100 as we did on june 24. four-day losing streak. a much stronger japanese currency. ahead of this jobs report, unchanged. 1.39% is your yield. alex: no one really taking any big nothings the next hour and a half. let's check in with our team of our top stories. julie hyman is in washington
7:02 am
counting down to the jobs report. guy johnson in london with the pound heading for its third weekly decline. and javier with oil taking a big plunge. david: a little less than 90 minutes, we'll have the jobs numbers. julie is joining us from our washington bureau. what are we expecting? what's the consensus on what the number might be? >> so the consensus right now of the economists we surveyed is for an additional 180,000 jobs last month. the big question was was may an aberration. does this signal a broader trend? we are seeing something of a slowdown in the three month average. if you don't include that may jobs report, you get an average 181,000. so we'll see what today does to that average but comes in line the average would remain a relatively in line as well. private payroll additions, 170,000 is thest mat here.
7:03 am
.8%, the average estimate for unemployment. .2%.ourly wages, a gain of all of these numbers going to be important for the fefment as we learn from the federal reserve minutes from the last meeting this week, federal reserve officials were concerned about that may jobs report. it really gave them pause. and that was before the u.k. vote and some of the other global concerns that have come back to the fore. so this number will be important for the market and the fefment all of these jobs report seem to be the most important jobs report of anyone. this one will be key for the arkets and for the feds. the key number there is 37,000. that's how many workers that verizon strike took away from that non-farm pay rolls number. you can subtract that 37,000.
7:04 am
in other words, if you're keeping it all even month over month. that's the effect of that in particular. the other sort of factors that we're looking for, i mean, the verizon strike was the big one. if you're looking for any potential effect from the u.k. vote, for example, that's not something where we will see. and as part of the management survey, they asked employers how important is the u.k. vote? they said it would be negligible. in the coming months, we'll see if that proves to be the case. david: thanks, julie. that's julie hyman reporting for us from washington today. jonathan: in london, guy johnson joins me. the story of the year has been the softer dollar with the exception of one currency pair standing out to capture this moose this year. it's been a big year for argentina. >> the british pound is
7:05 am
underperforming the peso. jonathan: remarkable. >> a lot of people are talking about it going even lower from here. the market is not there yet. there are signs of instability. and the t.a. guys giving a little excited that maybe we're in the early stages. and i emphasize early stages. maybe that's a move back up. i think the big story will be when we get a big pop back up. sterling hasn't hung around these levels back yet but people are positioning for that. not now, maybe not tomorrow or next week but it will come over some point. the currency pay as the cable rate but in the equity market, it's been italian banks. and the story continues today. have we made any progress this week as far as the position of the italians are concerned versus the position of the e.u. with germany at the core? >> this is how to europe makes
7:06 am
policy. they communicate. they argue their points in public and in private. you can't necessarily draw lines. talking about state intervention. now sticking to the rules are sticking to the rules can mean very different things to different people. the rules do allow for that to happen. so you can stick by the rules into the italian banks. you have to listen carefully to new york of what is being said here. as ever, europe will find a fudge. that's how to european policy is made. jonathan: that is very true. big moves in this market. the cable rate and your favorite crude. what a week. alex: oils -- oil's worst week since february. joining is javier from london. we're seeing oil up but what led the massive decline this week? >> it is a lot to do not with oil but with the gasoline
7:07 am
market. we were expecting strong consumption in the united states the summer and the consumption that first half of the year has been very good. but two things are happening the demand growth has zphrode refinery has been able to make a lot of gasoline. we are entering the driving season for the summer holidays with too much gasoline. refiners have to start cutting back on production rate. and that means they are consuming less croyle -- crude oil and that's why the whole complex on oil has come down. and we have seen the -- we have seen now in the wholesale market in new york for gasoline. we have not seen gasoline prices this time of the year peak driving season demand that low in 10 years. alex: great perspective. wow, 10 years. feel like the markets also hering bullish news. the biggest decline since 2013. you still have problems in
7:08 am
nigeria and libya despite any kind of peace talks. what does it say that ignores the bullish factors? >> they have been very bullish factors. nigeria with lots of production problems. the middle east is not peaceful at all. if you look at that kind of development, the main problem is iran is a very bearish factor. there's a lot of oil from iran. nigeria remarks we have seen recovery production. the u.s. production is coming down but we have too much inventory and this is the time of the year where those bullish factors are really drawing down inventories. we have seen stocks draw. we are not seeing anything extraordinary and the market really needs to see extraordinary stock draws to really rally above these levels. and beginning to be a bit of a consensus in the market. maybe the rally is over and we are going to end 2016 around
7:09 am
current levels between $45 and $50 a barrel. alex: thank you so much, javier, joining us in london. for the latest on the developing situation out of dallas, texas, and other world and national news, here is emma. >> thank you, alex. snipers have killed five police officers and wound six others in dallas, texas. the attacks took place during a demonstration against recent police shootings of black men. the shooters coordinated their attacks. dallas chief called this an ambush. >> the suspects were positioning themselves to triangulate from the police officers from two different purchase in garages in the downtown area. and planned to injure and kill as many law enforcement officers as they could. >> three suspects have been arrested. a fourth was hold up in a parking garage in downtown dallas exchanging gunfire with
7:10 am
police. president obama spoke about the attack in warsaw. >> we still don't know all the facts. what we do know is that there has been a vicious, calculated and despicable attack on law enforcement. >> police are searching the downtown area for explosives. meanwhile, david cameron will make a show at the nato meeting. he will make the argument that britain is still relevant on its allies even though it is leave the european union. he will pledge more than 3,500 roops. and south korea and the u.s. have agreed to deploy a missile system. it is in response to a growing missile threat to north korea. china is urging the two countries to reconsider. global news. 24 hours a days, powered by more

7:12 am
ahead on "go." this is bloomberg.
7:13 am
7:14 am
jonathan: futures in the u.s. ahead of the payrolls support a little bit firmer. the london, ftse 100 is unchanged. guy johnson saying sterling now the worst performing currency so far this year, beating the argentine peso. dollar yen close to the 100 market. 144. a fourth straight day of declines for that currency pair. and yields unchanged in a week
7:15 am
where we saw an all-time yield on the u.s. 10-year. david? david: thanks very much, john thafpblet as everyone knows, you certainly should by now if you're watching the program, today is u.s. jobs day. here to preview the numbers is david roseberg, the chief from est -- economist toronto. what are you expecting? >> i don't think the a.d.p. is going to miss two months in a row. the consistence somewhere around 170, 180. i think that is a reasonable estimate. as far as june is concerned, but the real kicker here and the real surprise could be an upward revision in may. keep your eyes on that because we didn't get much of the
7:16 am
revision to the a.d.p. today. and my sense is that we're going to see that gap close. so no matter what june does, keep your eyes on may because the chances we see an upper revision of size is very high. david: we have to take 37,000 and 38,000 out of the 170 because of the verizon strike. but if your analysis, you pointed some other factors that you think are reasonably positive. for example, a shift in attitude on an analyst part about corporate profits in the united states earnings. tell us what else you think are pointing in a positive direction. >> earnings estimates were starting to go up ahead of the brexit. and either you believe that you have a break in the series or you don't and time will tell. but we started to see some of the effects of the improvement in the commodity complex having a big influence on materials, energy prices going up, having a
7:17 am
ripple impact not just through the oil and gas industry but the financials. it's broadly paced. and the -- based. and the u.s. dollar acting as a strangle homeland on the industrial sector the question is whether or not the analysts -- given the fact that we're in a much more macro environment than we were previously. janet yellen uttered the word uncertainty no fewer than 39 times. the earning estimates have started to go up. the big question is brexit, whether or not the analysts start to taken a eraser out for some of the recent increases. back to the employment situation, i wouldn't say i'm bullish. this is one monthly number. i call it noise. the two things that i would actually pay attention to today in the june number, not the may revision, that's fine. even if you count the may revision and you get a consensus number in june, it's nothing to
7:18 am
hide the fact than the trend basis. employment is slowing. that's a fact. goods producing employment, yesterday in the a.d.p. number is 30,000. we are going to repeat in payroll. that's five months in a roll of negative and that leads overall employment. and keep an eye on transportation services. in april, that was down negative year on year. it went negative year on year in may at transports were leading indicators. those are the segments in the report that people have to pay attention to. alix: if you tie in corporate profits and jobs, that leads us to wages. it's the atlanta wage tracker. wages were supposed to come in 2.7% you're on year but atlanta showing higher at 3.5%. is that kind of rise sustainable? >> well it is showing that over time with the lags, the tighter labor market is finally belately
7:19 am
led to a moderate increase in wages. no matter what measure you look at, or even if you look at average early earnings, the increase is less pronounced but it's moving up gingerly. and we saw the evidence that they were seeing some poddest increase in wages. and when you take a look at nominal income in the united states, it's slowing down. nominal income in the u.s. is barely more than 3%. and there's two next -- incomes. when i take a look and i see last 15 years over year is running 4.3 effect. today it's running barely 3%. those are the numbers went to look at. and the wages are hooking up. it's coming to be the spence of -- expense of profit margin
7:20 am
which in the past was the nominal income growth that was squint the economy. no matter what number we get to april or june, the economy is fundamentally weak. and there's nothing in the tea leaves that will reaccelerate. david: higher wages do cut into corporate profits and it can also put more money in the pockets of consumers and the u.s. consumer is such a large portion of the u.s. economy. might that be a positive sign for the future if terms of growth? >> well, you know, it's a fair point. the u.s. consumer is certainly pulling its weight. if you take a look at the various components of g.d.p. and if you look at what has been the real shortfall this cycle, nobody talks about well, this is the weakest expansion of all time. it's not really the consumer. and it's not housing and believe it or not, it's not even
7:21 am
exports, notwithstanding how soft the global economy is. the big gap this cycle is business capital spending. and so that's been really the big gap. you're quite right about the consumer. i wouldn't say it's robust. and what goes into g.d.p. is spending. not income spending. the question is how much of that income is in the economy? so it's happening at the same time that you're getting this personal income growth from wages is a savings rate is on the rising trend for a variety of reasons. and that's one of the reasons why consumer itself is not doing great. but we're here talking about, you know, employment for the month of june. the question is, really, it's a lagging indicator what is the outlook for the second half of the year? and what's really caught my eye is core capital goods order. it's down four of the past six months. core durable goods orders are
7:22 am
down at a 9.5% annual rate. so companies are cut back on capital spending. that's been the case all cycle long. they felt more comfortable buying back stock and boosting the dividend payouts but this has been an anemic, the worst capital spending cycle of all time. and if they're cutting back, how far are they going to go in terms of adding their payroll over the past several months or quarters? david: david, thank you for being here. i keep looking for some good news but it's always mixed. it's always a little confusing. jonathan: coming up, we'll continue our jobs coverage with fresh immediate reaction to the jobs numbers from bill gross. and later, rick reeder, black rock's c.i.o. of global fixed income. this is bloomberg.

7:25 am
jonathan: one hour five minutes away from the payroll reports in the united states. let's get some premarket movers. >> here's something that you don't say every day. we have the italian banks trading sharply higher. u --includes unicredit and the company is not reporting though on the euro wide test duty in july 29. and these banks are saddled with a lot of underperforming debts and investors are weighing on in a pretty negative way. ugly charts. let's see what happens on july 29. sticking with europe, the european car makers were seeing a rally here after the chinese auto sales numbers for the month of june came up strong. up 19% on s.u.v. strength. looking at daimler, and -- v.w. all higher.
7:26 am
the european stocks overall sharply. we have the index for the automobile offers the last year that heads down sharply showing that underperformance. another wait and see. lastly here in the u.s., a.m.g. getting hit in the market. analysts went underperform but he has missed the big a.m.d. rally this year. let's take this call with a grain of salt, alix. alix: coming up, we have the latest on the breaking news out of dallas where five police officers were killed. and then back to markets. our job day coverage. how will wage growth be impacted? this is bloomberg. ♪ you guy's be good. i'll see you later

7:31 am
officers and wounded six others. the attack took place as demonstrators demonstrated recent police shooting in black men. david brown called it an ambush. >> these suspects were positioning themselves to triangulate on these officers from two different purchase in garages in the downtown area. and planned to injure and kill as many law enforcement officers as they could. >> three suspects have been arrested. a fourth was hold up in a parking garage in downtown dallas exchanging gunfire with police. the suspect shot himself but that couldn't be confirmed. president obama discussed the attack while attending a nato conference in warsaw. >> there's no possible justification for these kinds of attacks or any violence against law enforcement. the f.b.i. is already in touch with the dallas police and anyone involved in these

7:33 am
david? david: thanks. this morning's must-read is a must watch. tom keene joins us from bloomberg radio. we're waiting for jobs to come out an hour from now because of what it might tell the fed and what it might do. take a look at what mark had to say about the fed. >> we think the fed will be on hold for several more months. we do think they want to get off zero the probability of them hiking as higher than what the market's priced in. right now, the market is price in at 10%. chance they'll raise rate this career and doesn't have the fed moving until 2018. we think that's a little bit too pessimistic that the economy is doing better than that. david: so tom, i think that's probably consensus in the look at wirf the terminal, it doesn't anticipate much of a rise and the fed coming up any time soon. tom: it's total chaos here right
7:34 am
now. and he nails it. they're the idea of where the market is, where the experts are, where the fed is is one big jumble. david: if you go over the last few months when the fed has disagreed with the markets, the fed has come to the market. he's now saying nonetheless, that the market may be wrong. tom: but the key thing is a time function out to 2017 and 2018. most pros and this has happen oferede the last 10 years, david, people used to make grand 18-months projections. that's ancient history in the game. the game is what's going to happen in the next meeting or maybe what's going to happen the september meeting and then you go on year end. most pros are not looking out no an analysis of 2018. david: it's too far to look. but you had someone on "surveillance." you had the mark gilbert piece which was fascinating saying maybe a rise in the rates would
7:35 am
help growth. tom: seth masters said it to this important conversation which is brilliant. i really emphasize to people to read mark gilbert's piece out today. i'll put it out on social. and the idea is if everybody raises rates together, what would be the outcome? is is the ring fisher who considered the giants. and the believe in it is a belief based on very little experiment and very little data. and as professor boweder said, there's a real question of whether it would be effective if we all raised rates because of capital investment was stopped. david: although it had to do with demographics and the extent-to-which the grades -- tom: you put me in there. david: they would have more money to spend if you raised
7:36 am
rates. tom: yes. the favors do better and it works both ways but there's this word, ambiguous. there's a lot of ambiguous questions about the microeconomics of these kinds of theories. here's the theory. the numbers come at 8:30 and the markets will react. it's a live jobs report. david: we'll know soon enough. thanks very much, tom keene for joining us from "surveillance" radio. you'll want to tune in every morning for "bloomberg surveillance" radio with tom keene and mike mckee. alix: we are an hour away from that all important jobs number. how about 175,000 jobs to be created in june? that's the number that standish is expecting. vincent reinhart joins us. ere's 175k put the rate hike back in play? vincent: probably.
7:37 am
so remember two things about the job number. there's going to be a little bit of a sticker shock because 35,000 workers are going to be coming back from the verizon strike. we knew it was subtracting from the may total but people still got impressed at how low that number was. the second thing is the reaction probably going to be asymmetric. it's hard to imagine a strong enough number that puts the fed back immediately into play. 175,000 in that vicinity will get people to price out policy easing this year and start talking about the september meeting. but only be talk. alix: but the problem seems to be that would put the fed hike not on the table was a bad may jobs number. o we get a good june job number. how does the fed not being behind the curve? vincent: three things. the first, they were worried about the u.k. referendum. that's passed.
7:38 am
so it wasn't just jobs that kept them off the table. and the worst case eventuated. so they might say there is a lot of uncertainity. second, remember what janet yellen said and that is don't overcount one number. people will say this is a backward looking reading on where we were in june. lots of things have happened since. now, they're going to need a couple more readings to establish that there's a momentum in the economy. third, go back to what janet yellen was talking about all the way back into her philadelphia speech and her press conference. she likes to see job creation on the order of what we saw earlier this year and in 2015. that was 200,000 net jobs created per month. that's a pretty high hurdle. it's going to take a bit to be convinced that the economy has momentum. jonathan: i want to go all the way back to the previous tightening cycle where we saw the 50,000 and yet the feds went
7:39 am
ahead and hiked rates. why the overwhelming bias to view these small job numbers as bad at a time when we should be reaching full employment and jobs growth should be shifting? why is this the best thing? vincent: so i don't get it either, but you don't really care about my opinion and what they should do. it's what i think they'll do. and more than anything it's the con junk cher being this close o the lower bound. and keep the expansion going than overtighten too soon because you don't really have policy instruments you're confident in if you tighten too quickly. jonathan: i caught up with the president in london and he's worried about fresh credibility. a market that's priced out any fed action for the next two years. they tell us that we still
7:40 am
debate which data it is and we do that month after month after month. do you think there is a big credibility problem down in d.c. at the fed? vincent: there is a problem. it goes back to the deep waters that tom keene and company were talking about. i'm not sure it's chaos yet but it's concerning. and that is we're seeing the end of policy guidance as an effective tool, i.e.,, conveying the whole path of future policy over the next couple of years and using that as an instrument. why? because the world's too uncertain to make credible commitments. six months in advance, let alone a year and a half in advance. so they are going meeting by meeting in their policy decisions. problem is they're still publicing a summary of economic projections that tells you the whole future path for interest rate, conditional as it is. and the bottom line is we don't really know what the terminal federal funds rate is, however
7:41 am
this tightening cycle will end. nd those sorts of things are damaging to the credibility, the fed. that's why they keep on emphasizing data. problem is the dot chart, the summary of economic projection is haunting them. it was a good idea at the time. it's less good now. david: mr. bullard put out there that we should stop making projections too far up because they couldn't know it. has anyone picked up on that? i was surprised there's not more of a reaction. vincent: if you go back to the transcripts, one thing you'll see every time the f1c talked about a communications policy and it was involved in a number of those subcommittees and secretary economists, and they always say if we do something to enhance communication, we can never go back. and so they're going to feel that they've raise third bar on what they released and taking
7:42 am
something back seems undemocratic. it seems, you know, to change the direction of progress and transparency. so they're not going to be able to take that away unless they figure out some other way to do. alix: seems to be like you want to kill the dot. vincent reinhart, great to see you. standish chief economist. lots of job day coverage coming up. jonathan: absolutely. we'll continue that coverage right here on bloomberg. ahead, rick reed err breaking own the -- rid rieder breaking down thea and bill gross will join bloomberg tv and bloomberg radio from london and new york. this is bloomberg. ♪

'm david westin. council economic advisors jason furman joining us from the white house live. ♪ >> london and new york, this is bloomberg. about one hour 45 minutes away from the cash opening in new york city. this is how futures are trading ahead of the jobs reports. futures firm for the u.s. equities rallying as well. with economists forecasting a strong bounceback from an ugly may jobs report. june set to come in at 180k. joining me is ken. to set the scene, we've got a fed and a market that says no,
7:46 am
no, no for the next two years. we live in this post-brexit world where yields are low. and you sit there witnessing the funds flow. and i want you to tell us what the money has been moving in the last three weeks. >> money has been moving somewhat out of the european quities. but not a ton. u.s. equities has been stable. jonathan: what do the bond funds flow look like? are they trying to get some pickup? ken: they're going more to the yield to get some credit spread in there. so they're going into the corporate funds, investment grade funds. it's more of what we're seeing than the government funds. jonathan: you look at european peripheral data. but with treasuries in mind on a job where we get the latest payroll report, do you find it hashed to reconcile yields with
7:47 am
pay growth less and unemployment south of five? ken: a lot of what's causing yields is the yields in the rest of the world are so low. there's constant move towards yields and the u.s. is looking fairly attractive to a lot of global investors. jonathan: for global investors look into your funds, the passive story, a lot of people have painted a picture that it's all about cost. is it all about cost? ken: it's a big part of the move towards passive is about cost but what we're seeing, the flow has been strong and at vanguard, we're seeing a pickup in active flows, especially in fixed income. and even on the active side t about cost. it's about the money is moving into the lower cost active funds, no the higher cost or moderately cost active funds. jonathan: the story over the last five, six years has been
7:48 am
passive overactive. do you see that changing fundamentally in any way as the years progressed? ken: i don't see that changing. i think the flow has continue to move towards the passive but the active flow tend to move towards the lower cost active. and that's the interesting story going forward is really investors looking at what is the average expense ratios on the active funds that those investors who believe in active and having a lower hurdle rate to overcome by actually looking at the lower cost active funds. jonathan: have they changed their convictions to where they see the world since the referendum in the u.k.? ken: there's still a lot of uncertainty going forward, how the e.u. is going to work with the u.k. in terms of negotiating the exit. so there's still so much uncertainty going forward and what that does is it causes businesses to reduce their investment spending, causes consumers to pull back and be
7:49 am
cautious, real estate prices have taken a little bit of a hit. and that creates that kind of uncertainty that is going to be hurtful to the u.k. economy and the european economy. jonathan: someone in london told me don't bother watching because it doesn't matter now that we've had this post-brexit move. would you agree with that? ken: i think the fed is probably priced out until the end of the year, december, or maybe the first quarter of 2017. investors do need to news these kinds of opportunities especially in europe and in the u.k. to rebalance their portfolio to the longer term mix. one of the things you don't want to do after the market has dropped considerably is to leave the market because the market has priced in a lot of that news. it's a great time like in the u.k. and in europe, equities have underperformed bonds. it's a great time to rebalance

dollar yen, close to 100 mark. it's the stronger japanese yen story. the cable rate stable around 12979. and yields all-time low yields earlier this week. we trade at 1.39%. unchanged today ahead of that payrolls report. alix? alix: one of the big stories out of the u.k. this week had to be what happened with the u.k. property funds seizing up and halting some redemption. credit suisse says there is more downside for the open-ended funds. close-end funds limit amount of shares. this is the difference between the two. preredemption. this blue line are close-ended funds. they had about 20% decline. this orange line are open-ended funds. those are the guys that hatted the redemptions and they had about a 5% decline before the suspensions. point bigs in order for the open ended to catch up with their
7:54 am
peers, there has to be a lot more downsize. and the 15% more downside to get to that level. in addition, come of the closed-end funds that we have been seeing are trading at severe discounts to their net asset value. we can pull this other chart. so this white line here is u.k. commercial property trust fund. it is a closed end fund and this blue line is commercial property trust, also a closed-end fund. this is zero. when they wind up closing above that level, it means they're trading a premium, meaning a premium to the assets that they have in that fund. now below zero, they're looking at a discount where are they showing now? a pretty severe discount to the underlying asset. so john, credit suisse's point is open-ended funds have a lot more potential downside if they're going to match the downside we've seen in the close-ended funds. a topic we've been talking about all week.
7:55 am
jonathan: one of the big appearingle is the differing approaches from individual funds about how the handling the redemption story. aberdeen for instance, telling investors there could be 24 hours i'm going let you decide whether you want to take the write-off or realize the loss and pull your money out and that's fine. other funds saying 28 days and then reconsider. so all these different funds with different strategies in terms of how they handle the redemptions. alix: imaccumulations for investers and for banks who might hold these underlying loans as well. david, we saw a lot of this in 2008 and 2009 when the mortgage crisis hit. the trickle down was selling gets selling. you sell celski what you can, not what you want to. david: we have not seen is actual prices for real estate going down. the question is whether this trickles through the actual amount of money people are paying in a real estate in the u.k. which we have not seen yet.
7:56 am
alix: we have estimates from 20% decline in those underlying real estate assets. david: for office rents. 20% down. alix: yeah. definitely something we're going to be keeping our eye on as the brexit fallout continues. david: thanks. that's really good. the latest on the breaking news out of dallas where five police officers were killed. plus, we are awaiting the pay rolls number. we get reaction from the june jobs report from bill gross. and later, rick rieder, blackrock c.i.o. will be with us in new york. this is bloomberg. ♪ e

8:02 am
radio surveillance michael mckee. first of all, the numbers, prediction? >> the forecast is 180,000. wall street is leading a little stronger. if you look at this, this is -- if you look at the skew of the forecast. towards a belief among economists we might be stronger. just part of that not potential paybacks but verizon workers coming back from strike. you have to count just discounted 35,000 from that number. >> we should have added 35 numbers to get a cleaner reader, but it is still a lousy number for may. he said subtract 35,000 from the june result. i am concerned we could be on the softer side of things. ,he bls could be very seasonal and the more typical seasonal in
8:03 am
may, we would've had weaker numbers. there is a penchant for weaker numbers to pervade the labor data, not only injured with david: the next couple of months. david:do numbers tend to be weak. >> there is a mild mop bias. it is our to adjust for the back-to-school season when people move in and out. alix: the other part is wages, expectations of 2.7%. this looks tax withholding receipts. you pay more money to the -- thankt, thinking you for making this chart. if i can zoom in over the last few months, you see it increase. is that sustainable? >> it is if we continue to see people get jobs. on the basis, the numbers are worried -- running weaker. the numbers are met matching up.
8:04 am
just not matching up. are we really seen people get hired or not? it is not a perfect correlation, but it does tell you something. alix: if the wage increases and the tax withholding are the minimum wages, at some point, that juice is going to wear out. it is happening across the spectrum, as we are seeing labor scarcity in an array of fields, especially higher skilled openings. so i think that will beget more wage pressures. wage pressures are critical to the interpretation of the jobs report. we always joke, this is important, but this one really is. i would think the most important data point in the last six months, because we have seen the pace of hiring dwindling not just in may but over a sustained time. this is real questions, is
8:05 am
due to economic weakness or a more mature economy? if it is the economy, you need to see wage pressure accompanying it. david: funny up the average number of hours worked or week, we talk about this every time in you note a .1% variance the average number of hours worked would be the same as how many jobs? >> over 300,000. gainve to take the payroll into broader context of what it means for hours worked and aggregate income. it tells us about gdp growth for the quarter and household income. david: michael, what are you looking at? >> the headline number for all the reasons we have been talking about. janet yellen made it a big deal about minority unemployment and minority earnings. she let off her testimony last month with that. employment doubled the

8:07 am
earnings have been stubbornly high. they have not gone higher, or lower in the last 18, 21 months. you wonder why the stock market is near all-time highs, because earnings are near all-time highs. it there is a strong correlation between the two factors. if you start to believe there is a better economy, you ought understand better earnings and there is a positive trend. market iseems the pricing an ok job number, and then a diminished fed. if we want a killer number, does that for the rate hike back on the table? but aate interrupting, single data point will not change the fed's mind, and i don't think anyone should -- i gets the ultimate very nervous just focusing on a single number. it becomes very topical, on the given day, we had a very poor number reported for the may jobs. deviationhe standard

8:09 am
2000 phd's who work in the fed. i can't sit there and say they are making costly mistakes. the fed structure, or you have these different presidents in different cities who have the ability to speak their mind, and they are not speaking for the fed, but themselves, they create caution and communication. different voices are heard in the foc meetings as well, the chairman and vice chair get a consensus message out. one thing is really confusing when the fed talks about data is this idea of market dependency, also. it is part of the data they watch because they have to worry about feedback loops. let me give you one example. in january, one of the worst points, early february, 40% of the s&p 500 names, 200 out of 500, more down -- were down 45%.
8:10 am
imagine your stock is down 35% to 45%, you think the world is ending, you cut back investment, don't hire as many people. you worry about the stock market. the fed says we understand feedback loops. we have to be conscious of markets, not just the labor data point. alix: citigroup u.s. equity strategist, speaking with us. we'll be breaking that down next. for the latest on breaking news out of dallas, texas, other headlines. here is, chandra. reporter: downtown zealots is a war zone. police chiefire on during protests of shooting black man. seven officers were wounded and five were killed. it was an ambush. wereese suspects participating in a way to triangulate on these officers from two different perches in

8:17 am
concerns, but people will try to price a higher probability of it late -- rate hike later this year. one product will not get you there. the federal want to see other things. we look at the brexit vote or the italian banks, the fed will take a harsher posture. one data point does not change that. jonathan: the labor president here last week said the brexit decision should have pretty much nothing to zero impact on the u.s. economy. why is there a concern for u.s. equities. i understand foreign earnings are a big makeup of the s&p 500, but when we woke up under 24 and saw the s&p 500 and constituents down, was that overdone? tobias: i am not sure it has no impact with respect to the earlier comment. i think it has modest impact.
8:18 am
europe is probably a percent of the s&h -- essen it p5 hundred sales. -- s&p 500 sales. tobacco am ae, they are still taking the drugs they have to take with respect to the brexit vote. so the last one present might be cyclically sensitive areas let's point 02%.s 20%, so it is not zero. a domino effect. and then, is there a vote in france, italy, spain? everybody freezes. it would not say no impact, but it is a secondary effect. that was what my point was. david: you were talking about the psychology of the ceo and whether it is brexit or what the fed might do or what the economy, or their stock prices. there is a lot of uncertainty facing the ceos we need to get
8:19 am
past. the biggest determinant on determining whether they will hire people or invest? side,: on the investment we did a study looking at 700 companies in the u.s., and energy, we all know energy is down. but ask energy, the aggregate capital spending plan for 2015 is up 25%. that is higher than we thought the study back in february, up 4%. the biggest drivers, technology, media, companies that have to invest in the media industry, responding to or cutting and things like that, or in technology, you are talking about cyber security, things like that. david: it is often the pretty low base. in the last 20, 30 years -- tobias: no. capital spending has been growing. growing ever single
8:20 am
year we hit records in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014. 2015, was a pullback because of energy. ask energy was up. and it is just inaccurate. head ofspending at the buybacks everything a year since 2009, and the record year was 2007. we are this drumbeat -- here this drumbeat of inaccurate data being spouted. david: so i was wrong, and i'm glad to be corrected. tobias: everybody is wrong on this one. david: why is a productivity coming out? tobias: i talked to the protesters -- professors in the u.s., and they think it is being measured correctly for the most part. you take an uber car ride for instance. you get out of the car. behind the scenes, you are getting billed, right? there is a billing process happening in the cloud, but you
8:21 am
walk off the to your next meeting or whatever. that is productivity. there was a process of a bill payment being generated. it goes to your e-mails, this is what you spend, etc. something is going on, but we don't measure it that way in terms of hours. kind of academic groups that look at this believe there is a measurement issue. alix: so you have 3% earnings growth for 2016 for the s&p. you are looking for some kind of organic growth. and in citigroup says the brexit--- heightened the risk. how do you even this? for phil,eat respect so if i say anything bad, it will come back to me. the context is the same, it uses the term a growth recession. it means we are going to have modest growth, the u.s. being
8:22 am
one of the better elements of that growth. there was a big disappointment over the last double years. it is not even europe or the u.s., it is emerging markets. that had been the engine of growth globally and the slowdown for a variety of reasons. monti's and countries, for example. let's go to the u.s.. sales are north american. we are more dominated by what is going on here. the growth is slower than we anticipated before. you put that together, you need something more devastating to her the earnings of the u.s.. we had a couple of things hurting us, energy. that was 80%, but he percent was the trawler -- dollar -- 20% was the dollar. isnif you look at the manufacturing new orders, they have been out five months in a row, which has been harbinger for industrial trends.

a huge beach. other cyber security stocks could be sought soaring. let's look at what key things are looking up. director ofnaging foreign exchange is looking at the impact of today's job report on the dollar. great to have you. because of this tug-of-war between safe haven bid for the dollar on one side and rapidly declining expectations of activity on the fed on the other , which side wins? when we get the breakout? big number in enough combined with average 0.3% or 0.4% month over month, that would be big and the dollar would rally significantly. he would havto reprice the fed. the summer 2016 comes back on the cards.
8:28 am
-- december 2016 comes back on the cards. it would not do much on the dollar story. we remain in the same tug-of-war we are in now. if we get a big miss, there is a asymmetric set up. if we get a big miss lower, that will be bad for markets. we might have to pass global recession. if the dollar gets hit initially , and then probably comes back on a safe haven bid. dollar-yen it will be the one that suffers the most in that regard. the tug-of-war is in place. looking for number outside of the consensus and the comfortable range. jonathan: talking about asymmetric risk, look about the dollar. if we could capture this, the dollar is underperformed everything bar the cable rate against sterling. move either way, surely the potential for the upside is bigger, given we have a lot of stock movement and talking from the fed.
8:29 am
>> that is correct. we have seen the dollar weakening against commodity currencies and the yen. it did rally against emerging markets and the pound, but not against the euro. there is potential for the dollar to rally. any meaningful shift in u.s. will give that into the dollar. is not in the best interest of -- fed to have an excited extended dollar rally, and that will be key. very much.hank you 40 seconds away from the payroll report. let's check in on the markets. the scorecard ahead of that, this is how we trade. futures are firm in the united states. equities are up in europe, the dax up 1.35%, the ftse 0.3%. this is all the fx market is positioned. dollar-yen, 149.49.
8:30 am
a stronger pound story in today's session. yields have not changed on the 10 year. 1.39% is how we trade on the u.s. 10 year. the june payroll report is right here with julie hyman. 287,000 jobs added in june, that is the best gain since october 2015. better than 180,000 estimated by economists. 4.9% versusomy -- 4.7% as unemployed rose. 0.1%, half ofng what was estimated. the other important number, may ofise is down from a gain 38,000. april revised higher to 144,000 123,000. that means the three-month average gain is 147,000 versus
8:31 am
the 12 month average gain of 129,000. so they came from gains in leisure, hospitality, social assistance, and financial activities. private sector grows 25,000. in may, the gains that it happened, happened because of government hiring. this fell by 6000 in may. it was the first decline since february 2010. effect onthe verizon the information category. the biggest drop in private sector and hurrying in the month of may -- hiring was in temporary agencies. 62.7%. the average work week at 74 .4%. the headline, 287,000 jobs added in june, and may revise down to 11,000. jonathan: thank you very much. markets trading on the upside.
8:32 am
a big beat for the month of june. the two-year yields going up five basis points, to 63. 10 year yields up for basis points, zero point -- 1.43. a stronger dollar story. the cable rate is putting back down to 129. the dollar index up 0.1%. the initial react in the market is up. with every deep that remains to be seen, but we are trading on the upside surprise. two hundred 87,000 jobs added in june. much more even if you back out 37,000 for the verizon workers. you are looking at a gain of 250,000 workers. david: it seems like it was going to be half of that. how all overed by the place the numbers were. from 11,000 jobs down
8:33 am
38,000. and you are seeing the market sort of move higher on that. let's go to tom keene and michael on bloomberg radio. ony are speaking with janet the much better than expected jobs report. tom: we welcome bloomberg television with the radio audience. we have jp morgan here. bill gross of janet's capital. this is a point where you smooth things out. i'm looking at a three month moving average of 147,000. that is stabilizing the shot that we saw last month. yeah, i think so. the fed's statement last month suggested unemployment, uncertainty. straight- as you things out, that does it. the unemployment rate went up to 0.2.ages increased
8:34 am
things are not as hunky-dory as 287,000 might suggest. but it is maybe a normal 150,000. it is nothing to get excited about. but doesn't get anybody interested in what janet yellen and company are going to do? does that change the calculation of when they might move at all for you? bill: i don't think so. into is the brexit to look the eyes of brexit, i guess. they have problems with italian .anks does with the ecb and the eu do, problems with u.k. the property, mutual funds. there is a sense of liquidity in markets, and the fed is upset and concerned with markets. to the extent that there is
8:35 am
discord around the world. i think the fed stays where it is. they want to raise interest rates. they did it once. if they want to have us believe they will raise several times and therefore have a pretty positive yield curve, which will help banks and insurance companies, for the most part, i don't think this change is much. michael: your calls for how many rate moves this year? for athe market calls half in the 12 months beyond that, another half. 12 basis points each. that is the market. that is, i think they raise once and try to get employment numbers like this, and if they get those wages up, then perhaps they will have their chance later in the year. they really do want to raise rates, some of them like bullard and evans have a sense they need higher interest rates in a to
8:36 am
balance out their savings versus the investment element in the economy. tom: in the market come back, it is stronger yen and then weaker yen on the report. and then we have the yen coming back again. in our question lifetimes, this is the most prized to perfection bond market we've ever seen. is your day to day life changed when you see yields? the yield goes from 139 to 131. these are shocking yields, shocking bond evaluations. what are you doing day-to-day within this? hit is priced to perfection, i will change that if you permit may. -- i don't think it is priced to perfection. space.ed negative yield in germany, the ecb cannot provide 40% of german bonds
8:37 am
because they are yielding less than 40 basis points, almost everything including the 40 year jgb. so it is on third that it is absurd. so you don't buy those bonds. the german banks and insurance companies have to buy because they have got to put their money somewhere. so you substitute some kind of certainty. the trick in this business is to buy the highest return relative to risk. i would say every asset class is at risk. the question is, which is at less risk. is, centralpremise banks will do what they do despite the fact i disagree with it. if that is the case, volatility itions, thebanks' pos volatility of the policy rates around the world will stay
8:38 am
relatively constant. so you want to take advantage of that by selling personality around it. that would include buying more, selling outright options. that would include basically staying in your in zone summing like 1.4% on a 10 year like 5% or 6%. gross shells mr. options, those derivatives, those bring in the income stream. bill gross, if i look into the into thend into july, second half, is bill gross looking at janet yellen's american world and for that matter, a troubled europe as an equilibrium or disequilibrium so great that you need to be vigilant for the shocks? bill: one must be prepared. .t is hard to say
8:39 am
it does not approach a black swan, baby a grace want. y swan. ybe a grace we are not quite sure what is going on with china, but i observed the chinese stock markets basically stay level throughout the entire night, each and every night. one half is suspected, something is going on there. problem a potential almost everywhere, and i, that is the key. a highly livered world, anything can set it off. tom: let me ask one more question before we go to my colleague. there was a brilliant article written overnight in the telegraph about china exporting their deflation over to us.
8:40 am
is janet yellen running a non-orthodox policy that she has got to accept the disinflation from china and the rest of a troubled economic world? bill: i think she does, and if she continues to talk about raising interest rates, that would make it even worse. china has been devalued the 6% or 7% over the last seven or eight months, 10% annual exporting deflation. experts don't understand how that could be the case. we can buy chinese goods much cheaper. that erodes the manufacturing bases, it becomes is competitive. china exports deflation to the rest of the world. , not with as that stronger dollar or an interest rate hike. behavior doeser
8:41 am
to some extent. tom: we are so europe, europe, europe. guess what? china and a little bit to do with it. tom: china will come back into the news. to ask you about the price action today. it is similar to what we have been seeing in recent weeks. does the new curve tell us any much about this point? moreeory, we should see signs of inflation and not go down as much as going up. i think we, the old standard, that is the possible problem with the old-time 72 --ors, not that i am but i think the old standard is when the 10-to curve is on zero. it has come down from 250 two now i think it is a read on 78 or 80.
8:42 am
78 orhink it is around 80. the process of flattening, the momentum of flattening will make the difference, and one has to adjust to the highly levered world. it is a different world with the yelled flat -- yield curve is flat at zero. i think the fed basically has been tightening for the last two years. they have taken off things. curveave watched the between two and 10, 30 flattening. financial with profitability, regulation, all of that in combination. the flattening yield curve is not good. even where it is, it suggests a potential for slower growth in the session down the road, especially alongside a very strong dollar. 20%can see an increase by to 25% in the rest of the world. a very provocative
8:43 am
piece in the last 24 hours, got a lot of comment. the banks are keeping rates too low. if they were to rise, thanks for profitabilitynks will have demographic shifts. ugly people, not you -- tom: watch yourself or you will never come on again. michael: they are not making any money right now, because they can earn anything on their savings. you get more bang for the buck that way than trying to influence the spending behavior of millennials. , but thatink so too is not the problem. the central banks work off of 20, 30 year models. i think it is commonsensical. that is where common sense enters the equation. it would be negative in terms of mortgage rates. certainly in terms of stock
8:44 am
toces at discount relative the gordon dividend discount model. to basically lower its prices, everything else being equal. the real problem going forward is savings and the ability to earn savings. executive companies, profitability and margins, citizen incomes, education and retirement. it was time to raise interest rates, 12 to 18 months ago. i still think it is, but i don't think is going to happen. mentioned pension funds. what is happening now is going to be a disaster. what do you do if you are going to be a pension fund manager? bill: it is a disaster. you try to change the rules a bit. they do that, they change the rate and make the relevant a little bit different in order
8:45 am
to stretch out the inevitable. but you try to cut benefits. that does not work very well. we have seen that happen into troy and chicago. the begich's -- budgets get hung up as you try to reduce benefits. a long, dry doubt battle in terms of reducing the marginal profitability over the marginal survivability of a pension fund. most of them are like 80% funded because of lower interest rates and their durations have not matched the durations of liability. it is a long problem going forward. one of the ways to do it is to raise interest rates. there are other ways. michael: will this unleashed a wave of buying as fundamental as capitulate? is this a fight over 30? bill: that is the buzz in the
8:46 am
paper. i don't know whether that is true or not. it is hard to immunize your portfolio. a 10 year at 1.4%. you will question your sanity because a few years ago, it was 3%. before that, 5%. annual immunize at 1.4%. immunize atill 1.4%. so all he is in germany, their portfolio was negative space. thereiance and germany, portfolio is negative space. rusheal problem would be a to all you risk your assets to provide a semblance of return, relative to liabilities. profitu mentioned companies in the editing them. they have got to stop reductions
8:47 am
from the various funds because of the gain. i think what all of our viewers and listeners want to learn from bill gross, including the institutional lead like madame lagarde warning yesterday with the imf is when this alice in wonderland world underlines. will it unwind along smooth, predictable, dampened reaction funds, or will it unwind with ugly jump conditions where there is real damage? which way do you go? bill: policy makers are trying to make it through there. in the last five or six years, monetary stimulation, changing and rules at the last minute. basicallyt germany in could be aail bail out for italian banks under special circumstances.
8:48 am
we'll get the u.k. property mutual funds basically changing their unit value. the worth of the fund by 15 overnight to prevent money coming out, which is incredible. say, whatn investor is my money worth? tom: there is a smalltime bond manager on the west coast. remember him? his name is gun lock, and he focuses on deutsche bank as a proxy for the european banks. when you consider the position deutsche bank is in or if they have to structure cocoa hybrids for the italian banks to be the kind of jump condition that leads to real instability? bill: it could be. we have known deutsche bank is a weak link in the banking system for a long time. with the stock prices, it sinks
8:49 am
to 11, 10. there must be a hole somewhere. deutsche bank is over hundreds of trillions of dollars of derivatives, some of which then closed out, but we don't know what is left. was theeutsche bank bastion of german banking versus a long time, but it got caught in the rush to derivative mess. now is the problem. certain italian banks, deutsche bank, the lack of confidence for the policymakers as they change the rules in order to support them, all of these things, reduced confidence in markets is investors know the artificial prices are the theme of the day. tom: one thing you have been comfortable with in recent quarters has been mexico. if i see a brexit knock on effect with the contagion in
8:50 am
europe going over to a mexican peso from 18 to a weaker 19, who knows where it is going, does even bill gross have to stop doing normal procedures because of the butterfly effect of brexit in europe over to an emerging market proxy like mexico? bill: i think that is a fair impression. mexico is a proxy for emerging markets. abreast of the art emerging markets. it has half the ddp of the united states, but mexico and the peso are taken on the chin when things go wrong. what does that mean in terms of policy? we saw last week the central bank raised interest rates to support the peso to some extent. so you can expect volatility. i will point out the mexican ten-year tip, the linker, the inflation in the bond, it yields
8:51 am
3% real as opposed to 35 basis points in the united states. it is huge spread. you can adjust for credit quality, but it is a value absent, a rush to safety. michael: we have seen a lot of people rushing into corporate bonds as anybody tries to get some sort of yield here. his that a smart move? are people taking too much of a risk and using it as a proxy for sovereigns? a quick you figure out what the spread is, you pay high yield at 450 basis points to figure of the annualized defaults on the recovery. of 50%.e recovery that takes two points off the 4.5, so that leaves you 2.5%. you have treasuries.
8:52 am
that is not a bad deal, but it is not the deal investors think we are going to get. and we have problems like we are talking about, those spreads are going to widen out. it is obvious when interest rates are zero and negative but everything is tied together. the knee bone and the hip bone and junk bonds and negative are tiedbonds together. you must think the high-yield bond area is artificially priced and underwritten his and circumstances. -- in certain circumstances. across all categories of corporate, or just high-yield? there are cd x, an index of high-yield bonds. ig cdx, investment-grade bonds.
8:53 am
they are easily traded. are about 125. so when you buy protection versus selling, that you are that carry. but you are looking for a widening of spreads. that is what happens in both of those markets. michael: the cost of market money, effectively 37 basis points, or corporate bonds the channel for monetary policy now? bill: they certainly are beginning to be with the ecb. stocks of the asset class of the day with the swiss national bank, we found up. they have $500 billion worth of stocks around the world, including johnson & johnson. it is staggering. we have known the japanese buy
8:54 am
stocks, but i never knew the swiss national bank bought stocks. it is like a sovereign wealth fund. market iss entire distorted by cash flows that never have been. tom: i look at the swiss franc has a safe haven proxy for this united kingdom stuff. all of the world would like to know the bloomberg surveillance world would like to know what you are thinking in the drama of the brexit vote. what were you thinking as you saw the united kingdom shift to leave versus the presumed remain? bill:bill: i was watching that overnight. what i was watching, i had some options in u.s. treasuries, calls and puts. initially, the u.s. treasuries
8:55 am
were declining in price, declining to much. then all of a sudden, as the brexit was winning, treasuries went and we are going up too much. so you don't want to sell as much volatility as happened on that night. it was a long night for me. it turned out very well, but that is the problem with a sudden change. there are so many positions, so much leverage, currency wise as you point out every five minutes on your program. i think that is good. there are huge currency positions that have to be allowed and rebalanced. there are huge positions in terms of credit and treasuries. huge positions across the u.s. treasury. lots of volatility.

9:03 am
disappointing number. it cannot be explained away by the verizon worker strike. private payrolls contracted, fell by 6000 in may. that was the first since february 2010. if you three-month average pace of 147,000, a slowdown of the prior 12 months, but not as poor as some folks had been fearing for june. alix: julie hyman joining us from washington. acute wrap up. everything down. , operator ofmoney oppenheimer funds. is from stanford university evelyn. is this the green light to sell bonds? >> i hate looking at a single data point and making a choice like that. investors will react that way today, believing the fears they had going back to last month.

9:05 am
medium-term outlook for the u.s. economy or world economy. the drawdown expectation is driven by the fact look at economy was slowed down. this is not supported, but it is braque were looking data. -- backward looking data. seeill be a while before we the full data come through. to answer the question you asked tobias earlier, is this the right time to be selling bonds, mike answer would be, no. the driver of a bond is not really the u.s. cyclical environment. it is really the global .eflationary micra shocks brexit is with us and will be with us for quite some time. it is not going away anytime soon. i would say the markets would react somewhat to this, but it looks relatively modest and will
9:06 am
fade relatively quickly as well. back up andgoing yields. we saw a little bit. a couple of basis points. those in three positions, are you tactical about that? bonde battle you in the market is really government -- value in the bond market is really in government bonds. we were better doing high-grade bonds. at least you own some income. it is better than what you can get in government bonds, where half the world is negative. david: i want to go to stanford university. one thing we have not talked about is, we had the irony of both the jobs number going up, number of people employed, but also unemployment going up. what accounts for that? >> those numbers are volatile for one thing. you get month-to-month variations. the most important lesson we take from this particular report is these things bounce around a
9:07 am
lot. you are not going to have jobs tong from 11,000 one month 287 thousand and having appealed real reflection -- and having that be a real reflection of a number. 147, theto think about three month moving average. that is a good number. it is just about consistent with where we want to be to keep up with politics it -- population growth. so just to stay even, it is about 129,000 a month. that would keep us constant in terms of adding enough jobs to keep up with the population growth. that is where we are. the slight uptake in employment is not significant. to me, those numbers still suggest that we are looking at an economy that is near peak employment. and so, if that were the case, if we turn to these numbers and we believe these numbers, we
9:08 am
say, we are near the peak. we have basically recovered. wage growth picked up a little bit, our estimate is 34.4%. that is kind of high when your new the top of the business cycle. everything looks right. one problem, unemployment is very low. that is a significant issue. alix: so how far away are we from full employment? >> using the employment rate, we are down 4 million or 5 million jobs. a lot, obviously. how much of that is demographic, how much is reflecting things that are real in the economy? my calculations suggest that even if we correct for demographics, if you look at the current hiring rate, the on employment rate, rather than being 4.8%, 4.9%, which is -- five.hide more like 5.8%.
9:09 am
that feels more consistent with the kind of economy we have right now with growth rates we have seen, wage growth, and employment. that is probably the correct on implement rate, but -- unemployment rate, but we have come a long way from 10% unemployment. no doubt we recovered on the ground we had lost. david: picking up on what ed is talking about, that underemployment number, account for the fact we are not seeing robust wage growth? even 0.2% is not very robust. >> absolutely, and that is why the fed is focused on wage growth far more than on implement number itself. unemployment number is very contingent on participation rates and a lot of other factors. the proof of the pudding is going to be in wage growth. if it is not there, we are not

9:17 am
mckay. he said to bill gross, what would it take to watch the next bad news conference, given the market is set to do anything for two years? is enough to pay more attention? economic,lly, the backward economic data has been steady. but that is not the driver. the driver a bond markets and what the fed is going to do is what happens on a global basis. , we arenews is clear still full of brexit related uncertainty, and that will be the driver of conditions in the u.s.. david: so professor from stanford university, as we look at his jobs in a larger context of where the economy is now where it is heading, do you see growth? i always use the market as my best indicator of growth. the market is telling us that we are looking at the next four
9:18 am
to 2.5s of about 2% percent. if you believe market numbers, what is going on, that is kind of where we are. will be consistent where we stand throughout the whole recovery. picking up on christians point about the fed and their situation, they are in a bind right now. the reason is if you believe these numbers, the job numbers, growth numbers, everything going on in the economy, it looks like the recovery has kind of played itself out. a peak.t hopefully it is the plateau and we are not going back down. the fed raise rates? they do not raise the map a peak . they raise rates during the recovery. if that is essentially over, and the numbers look like the recovery is over and we are in an unsure phase, the fed is in a bind. this is not the right time to be raising rates. they should have done it two to three years ago, and now they
9:19 am
are stuck and have to figure out how to remedy that situation. that is the problem that janet and other fed governors face right now. we will see how they handle it. unfortunately, they are kind of behind the curve on this one. david: so this was the fiscal stimulus, and we always want that. it never happens. is it possible with tax reform? is possible. the real question is, is it likely? it is probably less likely that people would like it to be. the fiscal policy is something we talk about a lot, but given the political environment, it is unlikely we have seen much of it. alix: what turns more, credit or equities? >> credit. growth slows down and valuations are rich. credit can be carried. when rates are low, spread
9:20 am
widening potential goes down because of this slower thing. credit is the best choice. alix: we want to go to the new york stock exchange. they are taking a moment of silence for the police killed. [bell rings once]
9:21 am
[bell rings once] alix: that was a moment of thought exchange silence. -- stock exchange silence. five police's were killed by snipers, others wounded, including civilians. ed lozier is still with us from stanford. when we do continue to get these stronger job numbers, does there come a point when the fed is behind in the curve, if they said it was may, they would take that rate hike off the table? at the history of the fed, that is the best indicator.
9:22 am
what should they have been doing, when should they have been doing it? in retrospect, in hindsight, they should have been raising before. the question is, why didn't they do that? it comes back to what we were talking about at the beginning of the hour. while a number of the indicators look pretty good and seemed to the peak is peak, not where we should be. the implement the -- the unemployment rate is below where it should be. the labor market is 59.6%. rosemeans the labor people to the working age population is 59.6 percent. it should be 61.5%, and that is correcting for demographics. if you look at the previous session number, of couple percentage points even above that. correcting for demographics, we should have another two percentage points. the fed knows that.
9:23 am
they have known that all along. it has been that number more than any other that has kept them from raising rates. they look for this thing to move back to where it needs to be, and it has not gotten their. we arebe recovering, but still not back to where we need to be. that reason they have been reluctant to raise rates. as a result, now they are in a fix. jon: thank you very much for joining this program and giving us your insight on the job report and the federal reserve. and christian of oppenheimer funds still with us. looking at the conversation of the last hour, this is how it is expressing itself over the treasury curve. it is flat. just drop below 250 basis points. the buyers, they still by the long end, and the bias is a much fodder yield curve. -- flatter yield curve. how much longer does this play out? christian:
9:24 am
i think this will be with us for a long time. the driver of the story is effectively the fifth asset shortage we had on a global basis. is not just coming from u.s. it is coming from japan, most of all, u.k. and other parts of the world. that is not going away anytime soon. that does not say nothing about the jobs number in the eu on any particular day. jon: how flat can it get? christian: it can get still a lot flatter. historically, the curve is reasonably steep. it is a flat, or it seems flat because [indiscernible] but i think it can get a lot flatter. jon: christian, great to have you with us. david, with some breaking news. david: to keep you updated on
9:25 am
the story out of the capital building, we have report from a representative of congress, dennis ross, who is saying what happened was a staff member from the hill try to enter the premises with a gun and was apprehended presumably. they have it on lockdown. they were scheduled for a house vote at 9:15 eastern, 10 minutes ago, which has been postponed. we will continue to bring you up-to-date from new developments from the capital as they cooker. joining us now is jonas prizing of manus. he provides consulting around the globe. we have numbers coming out. you have a wonderful survey from employers. if you make of these numbers? jonas: we think the are consistent with a slow growth economy, a good labor market that still has some slack. can see the bouncing around
9:26 am
between may and june. we look at the three-month average, a solid number, almost 150,000. there is wage inflation, we expect more wage inflation going forward. all of that is consistent with a good labor market. there is still is room to go because of the work force rate at a historical low. david: ticky behind the scenes of this survey you did. 11,000 employers, tell us what you found when you talked to employers. we surveyed 11,000 employers, we asked a simple question. nextng ahead to the quarter, what are your hiring functions? a light you going to increase or decrease or hold it stable? so with response the third quarter, employers are still optimistic. if you look at your after year outlook, it is slightly softer, but overall at a good level.
9:27 am
employers look ahead to the fourth quarter, they are looking asa stable situation as far their business outlook is concerned and they will buy higher.d david: take us below the numbers. break them out. do you see variations region to region? jonas: we see this is notable. we see strength on the east coast. then it moves over to the west coast. it headed into the middle of the country. this time it is well just should be did. you can see differences between various sectors. the energy outlook is different, mining, anything related to the consumer is much stronger. as well as health care and retail, those are sectors where the employment outlook is stronger. david: you do this regularly.
9:28 am
you have not really seen an upward trend in this. is that correct? this is reasonably stable over time? this will improve going out? jonas: it is something we have done for more than 50 years, surveyed employers in this way in the u.s. and you are right, outlook for the third quarter is stable, so there is not an anticipated increase, but also not decrease. it is consistent what you would expect in a slow growth economy where a number of parts of the economy are still doing well, and the consumer is driving good economic growth as well as labor market stability and improvement. david: you also do a survey similar to this worldwide. compared the united states with what you have found overseas. jonas: we surveyed 60,000 employers worldwide in over 50 countries. what we are seeing is a chalky environment.
9:29 am
if you look at europe, the outcome on the whole is slightly softer. and then you have regional differences. germany is strong, ireland is strong, spain and greece are week. u.k. stable, but at a lower rate. it is a mixed picture. isia is very strong, japan holding steady with china slightly negative. it is a mixed picture. overall, i would say the employment outlook in the third quarter is stable to finally softer. breezing,t is jonas ceo of manus group. jon: thank you. 287 k is the job number. we approachscene as the cash open in new york city. let's go to the board. futures remain firm, s&p 500 teachers up. 20 seconds away from the open.
9:30 am
the ftse up 0.5%. the european equities had a week of losses. you hear the bell, so switch up the board. quickly. 1 -- 100 point 49. we came back again, the cable rate pushing up to 129.74, approaching 130. dollar-yen 100.46. or five basis points around the curve, now we are unchanged at 4.9%. wti, the biggest week of losses since february. almost seven percentage points. section across it since become a lesley at the market and get the movers he. here is ramy inocencio. ramy: initial reaction after stellar job numbers came out at 8:30 a.m. 0.8%, s&p up 0.7%.
9:31 am
the nasdaq, up as well. estimates the highest , 287,000. interesting stuff. let's take a look at what was happening with s&p 500 futures as well. you can see 8:30 a.m., when we get this leg up, numbers came up. we saw numbers with the esa as well. let's see where we are in term of the s&p 500 based on the post brexit vote back on june 24. coming back from june 23, all the way until today, less than 0.1%, the 2113 numbers while recouping all of the losses ever since then. let's look at safe havens, particularly gold. as you might expect, we do see a thatown just at 8:30, but
9:32 am
was a short-lived little event. gold is no climbing just a hair above on the positive line, $1371 is where we pop up. now $3063. -- $1363. the blackrock cio of fixed income joins us. he manages to $.3 trillion in fixed income assets. use selling short end of the buying the long end of the curve? >> i think that is longer than the trade of the day. i think that curve will keep flattening. that dynamic when the demand for the long interest rates and growth where there is not enough yield is a sturdy very. that keeps pressure in the back and the front is too high. we were pricing in a cut. markets are pricing in a cut if you go back a few days, that is crazy. the fed is not in any mood to cut rates. they have more room to go.
9:33 am
we see flattening. headline, get a red doubt reached 4.8%. looking at the curve, flat, flat. i wonder how flat. we are around 200 basis points, how flat really go? -- will it go? in history, go back we are at a reasonably steep yield curve for an economy operating at a decent level. can we get another 20, 25 basis points to flatten? it is incredible. one end of the curve is not cheap, but organically cheap for the inflation rates. the front end is too high, there could be back up in the other end, get 20, 25 out of it. jon: talk to me about duration risk and how things are getting a little bit overdone in some ways?
9:34 am
take away what is fair value of the 10 year, it is well back, 50 to 75 back of where these levels are. but we are not getting back to fair value anytime soon. the pressure in terms of the need for yield. think about post brexit. you took one country, the other major economy that was in the eu, a tightening mode, has suggested easing. so now it is easy to get yields, so the 10 year stays in this range. any negative news on the economy or political will push down a bit. the key of what we think about a lot is, how do you get income out of fixed income? the number was good for kerry assets, credit markets, emerging markets. this is what i would argue, close to a good number for emerging markets. emerging markets to not react terribly to brexit.
9:35 am
they held up all right. given the fact there was no yield to be found in the rest of the world, it seems like, is that a point to make now for the emerging markets? >> the hard thing about emerging markets is a moniker. you feelverage yield, good about investing. you get into the individual names. there are some tough stories. you have an economy operating at a decent level, which the u.s. is, and we are seeing growth in the emerging world stabilizing at levels, that is good. not overheating growth. you go in and think about which parts of the emerging markets, asia, india we have liked quite a bit. we've been adding to brazil a couple of months ago and argentina. said,nerically, has you you can get yield and real rates. some of these countries will have to ease and where they are. david: mexico, what is going on
9:36 am
with mexico? rick: a tricky dynamic. we talked about a month ago or so, it is a name we have liked. that being said, we reduced exposure over time, for no other reason than getting to a stable economy, growth and inflation ready good. certainly some challenges around the currency, but technicals in the market are not terrific. it has been a tricky one. the outset's are reasonable. that is one of the cheaper places to go. there may be a lot of time before return is positive in terms of mexico going forward. david: we want to go now to jason froemming, the council economic chairman. welcome dr. fuhrman. >> good to be here. we were surprised by these jobs number. were you surprised? >> i don't think you should be surprised.

these number is bounce around a lot. we are not good at measuring the economy as we would like to be, so we should do pretend we can do that really well. we are adding jobs at the pace of 150,000 jobs a month. that is mild decline in the unemployment rate. it is a good place to be given where we are in the economy right now. david: south is the participation rate and concerns concerned, people are it is two or three points below where it ought to be. are you concerned? jason: the largest thing that is going on is the aging of the population. above and beyond the aging, i think we need to be concerned that the participation rate has been falling for 60 years, adjusted for age for men, and 15 years adjusted for age for women. there is a long-term issue in terms of functioning of the labor market. you are that we have seen recently.
9:38 am
,e participation rate stabilize and that is because demography is dragging in one direction. the strength of the economy is pulling people back, and they are canceling out. in the short run, i feel good about it, but we need a bigger conversation about the long-run trends. about what something we were talking about today -- i want to ask you about something we were talking about today. the numbers have been low, which is indicative of a very good labor market. the dispersion between may and june was bigger than anything. any thoughts on that? jason: it is hard to believe the economy was really terrible in may and really great in jim. -- everythinggeos there was insistent with into gators. the -- other indicators.

9:40 am
the recovery. we simply don't need to add as many jobs to get the unemployment rate where it is or from trending down. the reason we are adding is because the in employment rate was so high. it was a system of how much work we needed to do. buttill have work to do, not as much. it is quite natural, expected, and i feel good. david: this is a different subject, but on all of our minds. that is the tragic shooting of the police officers in dallas overnight. would you give us your thoughts of the white house on this subject. the president said it was a vicious calculated and despicable attack. he is being updated on it while he is overseas, and that reflects the thoughts of all of us here at the white house. david: thank you very much. that is jason furman, council of

9:48 am
some parts of the high-yield market. rich in some parts of it. it would still do its job. it will create the carry in your portfolio that you want to create. i disagree on the fundamentals side, people talk about leverage that goes on. what is happening is terms come out. the thing that deals companies in high-yield is if liquidity is a problem. if you term your debt out, you don't have anything in front of you the next two to three years. or your debt service, your cost of interest. in that comes down, people talk debt toat equity, revenue, that is growth. if your debt service is not high because of where your rate is, i would argue high-yield is not a lot of industry time. we talked about the industry sector how commodities moved around. it is something to argue. let's look at debt servicing costs.

bgp is looking at what is happening with italian debt. 1.2% is the yield on the italian 10 year, but the story has been all-time record low yields and concern about italian thanks. you sit at blackrock. does blackrock think you have to build in a risk premium to spread, if the italian state steps in to do something with the banks? rick: that is equipped tough question. we could talk about all the ramifications, but the talent you banking system, you have -- the italian banking system, there are banks that are well capitalized in italy. have what is the dynamic situation, idiosyncratic situation. how that plays out. you have an election coming up in october. italy will be volatile. you have an insured airily supportive ecb -- extraordinary
9:50 am
supportive ecb. we think it is 120 going lower because of the incredible amount that mr. draghi has combined. we think we will have support of dynamics around italy. we think there is a positive coming around the banking system, capitalization with the banking system, about that will continue to play out. there is value in some of those banks, in europe broadly. or you take it with senior risk or equity, but there is value because of the syncretic nature. alix: so where? that gap is huge. --ior debt is pretty do see juicy. where do you see it? rick: we spent time looking at the places we like is, i think there is an earnings dynamic that is difficult.
9:51 am
the u.k. dynamic has to play out, there is near-term softening. softern dynamic is a bit , but we have got to watch other things. [speaking simultaneously] so that being said, some of the sub debts, subordinated debt has become attractive. we look at some of that, i looked at individual names. they have gotten overdone, in particular subordinated debt. equities is better, there is value. the banks are better regulated, better capitalized, no doubt, earnings are tougher, but i think there is value on the debt side of some of these banks. we have a report about home bias. explain what that is and where there is opportunity and the risk to it. rick: people in the u.s. like to invest in fixed income. that is what are they have known for 25 or 30 years. it is a consistent lower rate
9:52 am
dynamic. you can discuss the federal number, the u.s. is better than the rest of the world. u.s. fixed income, the first part of the rolled that will raise rates very slowly will be the u.s. some of the global funds are doing extremely well because of exposure to other parts of the world that are going to keep reducing rates. japan will be easing, ecb will be easing. emerging markets are going to be easier to get their economies require it. so people should think about interest rates in the u.s. are low. if you think about the trajectory of where the rates are going to go, where they go higher first, it is the u.s.. look at what is worked for me, and the u.s.. alix: what keeps you up at night? rick: everything. we need to follow data in the europe and u.k., but i don't think that will create problems.
