that is where the market story is today. we're still talking about expectations. maybe coming out with the next spending program. we do not know how large it will be. he does not know how big it will be but in any case i think the latest here is that a lot of these cabinet ministers have said they are there to start considering how to fund that when they get the details. standing by for that one. up one thousand points. in fact, north of that. that from friday, so talk about great expectations. the dollar yen continues to go up. setting ourselves up for disappointment? that said, asia is looking solid. it is another good handover we're giving you. have a look at what is happening

big figures below where it was on the eve of the boat. so it is higher than a few days ago and yes it is good to get the political uncertainty in one dimension over. the prime minister will be out of the way and there will be follow-through as she names the cabin and and proceeds. brexit may mean brexit but that also means a great deal of challenge, uncertainty, and the pause on inward investment which is the fundamental source of pound weakness is unlikely to be reversed very soon. this point make about this. up in certainty we're about to go through and for you, politics will jump -- trump. have a look at this. the market is already building up short positions again in sterling. what carneys trump potentially does? >> i think the large underway
positions in sterling have to be to some extent scaled back. i can see a bit of a followthrough here but when we come to thursday's decision it is pretty clear right now from the anecdotal evidence and the first read that evidence does matter on the economy. it was slow going into the brexit vote. the probable thing is the bank will act. whether it chooses to do so thursday or not is a closer call somebeen suggested by easing is required. some point, some easing in the fiscal policy. expecting action in august when they get the new inflation report. on the point about slowing inward investments, how convinced are you we're thing that already is that something still to come. i asked the question because yesterday someone said the investors have been putting money out of the real estate
fund, one of which is managing the overall in charge of, that is not the international investors brings bit and getting out of the u.k. asked the, he says that is retail and they said national investors are queuing up to buy property. larry: for sure. in some cases, the market might on thestorted and flat basis of price action when seen, but the reality is is the n-word and investment story must be what is driving the pound lower and that is not so much about pulling money out. a deficit which requires financing and steady inflows. these slowing of those inflows, not reversals, not capital outflows or flight, but these slowing in my opinion counts for the 20 big-figure drop in the pound against the dollar and a fairly large move against other currencies as well. manus: one argument would be the
control under the property or the ftse 100. for thehe volatility mid-caps. in the u.k. midcap versus 5100 and we have this sort of exponential spike it is at an all-time high relative to the large cap. does i continue? do we find the base levels? does the 130 band with these support level or under the mid-caps to a certain extent or is it just a large-cap story. it is mostly a large cap story. i would argue it will not make that much different for export. currencies of depreciated and exports have remained lackluster. it does not build out additional capacity when firms gain that competitiveness so it is second round affects and the economy is right. the midcap spike in volatility had to do with tremendous
selling and luke biddy pressure in the markets of the seven bated now but i think it will come back and it will take longer for the stocks to recover. >> at hathaway. thank you. in leslie and one hour's time, they eu prime minister will brussels. governor mark carney is due to testify to the u.k. parliament treasury committee. just two days of course before his first post-brexit policy initiative. international court is due to rule on the challenge brought to the philippines on the claim to more than 80% of this side of the china sees. >> can sheet negotiate a clean brexit? this is bloomberg. ♪
manus: welcome back. business flash. >> at maine is, first career lands to release fanfare's of models made by volkswagen and audi. that is due to an investigation widening. july 22. a banker has revealed it is in talks to buy almost $2 million in property from blackstone. the investor says it will put in around $582 million with other partners. -- thenot identify them
company will split into by the end of the year. that is bloomberg's business flash. anna? and: eu finance ministers meeting for the first time since the brexit vote. become the said to uk's next prime minister said they now know who they will deal leaves they prepare to the european union. ryan is there. good morning. what are we expecting today?
ryan: look, i am sure we are going to get more discussion of brexit. it was interesting yesterday, they were supposed to talk about brexit into it was on the agenda. but they intended to talk about how is going to affect their in economies, the european commission came out and said they thought it could cost as much as one half of 1% to the eurozone economies. it could cost the british economy as much as 2% in 2017, but nobody was anticipating they were actually going to know they were dealing with as they went into the future of the underscore prime minister when they went into yesterday's meeting. yet, they all had the news and seemed to be briefed about it and when it to be talk about it. sit andooner we can sort this out diplomatically, the better. >> the position of the commission is the same as the position of the council which remains unchanged.
it is that we should open the negotiations as far in this quickly as possible because we need to have limits on the uncertainty which is not good for the economy. >> the first major step we are taking. --least now we know the very that's a very shortly there will be a government in the u.k. hand we can talk to them about the u.k. endncerning that northern ireland. anchor: just because a timeline has been moved up by two monster is not mean theresa may would be sitting down here anytime soon because she wants to have preliminary talks with the eu and they said she has to invoke article 50 and she said she may wait until next year to do that. it gives them something to talk to with large osborne today and i am sure they will want to ask him about that.
suppose we will find out more over the next 48 hours. sanctions.about the potentially for spain in and portugal. ryan, where are we in terms of i suppose levying punishment on those two countries? so, i think we can expect punishment. maybe not today, what they are going to do is recommend that spain and portugal be punished. that goes back to the commission and then the commission has to decide what the punishment is. but the feeling seems to be, yes we have to punish some because we just came up with these deficit roles and if we do not punish them what was the point of coming up the rules? at the same time, they don't want to punish because they do not want to encourage the antiestablishment parties and they want the union itself to be
popular. so, the formula seems to be, yes we will sanction but no, we will not find. in other words, a slap on the wrist. anna: metaphorically. is the italian banking system on the agenda? it is an area of concern for many investors. ryan: it no. in fact that was the first question i asked when i spoke with the prime minister and he was emphatic it was never on the agenda, it will not read, it won't be today. he was quite annoyed. he said every media outlet in the world seems we're going to talk about italian banks and we are not. so, quite clearly all that movement was on the italian banking sector yesterday on the market, with the italian finance minister and other finance ministers for that minute wanted to say yesterday was don't expect any deliverables or results when it comes to the italian banking sector at this
meeting. dummy row road, perhaps, but not here. manus: thank you. larry hathaway is still here. he is the head of multi-asset portfolio solutions. should we be more worried? we have a host of things to talk about but should they be more worried about a tyra banks? the imf this morning saying they are concerned about urgent action in terms of bailing. not just a blind run 80 percent. just stabilizing around 18 percent. there is a huge weight of bad debt. larry: if we think about brexit and sanctions against digital in spain and think about the italian banks, by the way not just a tyra banks, others as well, i far and away the biggest challenge is the banking sector. indeed, if they do not fix the next six months that will be the
biggest challenge thereafter. thorny really a big issue in the sense it will not go away. too many bad debts and too little capital to support the sector and yet the resolution mechanism, they banking union couldadopted by the eu, potentially be destabilizing for italy politically but potentially destabilizing for the banking sector in being economies and the rest of europe including france and germany and being able to resolve this banks without creating those sorts of destabilizing issues is, it seems to me, paramount for the eu to address and i am shocked they are not addressing it. anna: you were shaking your head and a number of things being discussed and brussels. why would this be destabilizing to other countries because some of the countries we have had around the banking sect there in italy has been around the sort of self-contained nature of italian finance and it doesn't necessarily spell out to the rest of the eurozone as other
crises may have done. larry: look at deutsche bank on this as an example. which is to say if you go through a resolution you'll have to have some bail-and from editors. in italy the problem is those creditors tend to be retail and and hence the political challenge. europe is trying to engineer a stable recovery which requires credit formation. the last thing it needs is an adverse shock of uncertainty in particularly impairments to the credit story. it is round that they need to address this issue in a much more pragmatic way into the roles they have adopted -- >> it will be roles in this situation? larry: unfortunately not. the eu itself is a roles-based institution and the lead voice on these issues, germany, is a very much roles-based approach to things. this is where the rubber meets the road and it is grossly underestimated in many respects.
euphoric that brexit has been pushing the side, the japan will stimulate the world economy and it is all rosy for major equities. if use of thist of the s&p at a new record high. story and bnp context, this is a bond issued in 2008. trading at $.49. 10 billion euros worth of bonds to reach the mom and pop bond. 180 billion. a cannot -- they cannot. can't. larry: that is the case that shows his party trailing the five-star movement. of course, given the importance of the referendum, because additional referendum for october, about a different issue but nevertheless could be portrayed within italy as a policy.um on anna: larry, thank you. still to come on countdown, airbus plans multibillion
nbcuniversal's coverage of the rio olympic games. call or go online today to switch to x1. manus: it is 6:30 a.m. in london, 7:30 a.m. and paris. main dig into some of the stories making today's edition. who is this man? anna: carney. do i get a prize? manus: i don't know if he is going to get a prize from the select committee. anna: in connection with the june 28 financial policy meeting where they announced the take-up of their liquidity or relations. this will be the first time he
is said to come face-to-face with law markers. -- lawmakers. run-up to the referendum. it will be interesting to see the dynamics. as many people pointed out yesterday, a lot of the leaders have been quick to praise mark carney as being the stable institution at a time of crisis. manus: the other thing will be the focus on teresa may. 48 hours to go. you will be in the cabinet? george osborne setting out in a two-week trip. will he still be in the post? there was a great article talking about is theresa may challenging margaret thatcher? the odds are, probably not. she is talking about workers being on board. she is talking away from tax cuts being the only answer. 15% beingvocating what he might look for. is that what theresa may will go for in terms of the vocabulary
she used? to me it was a little bit more inclusive. >> a number of commentators pointing out a number of thing she talked about is quite similar to what ed miliband to the about in 2010 elections. also the oil market. the first feature trading more than five dollars a barrel. forw contracts for delivery the first time a year. the price gap has doubled in month, the recovery will be messy. another of the stories that daybreak is picking up. manus: the price today is much less than in a years time and that says, look, it over saturated, overcapacity. is $51 in top of this market benchmark their short daybreak. and the yen gains after aend -- weekend fresh round of stimulus.
>> good morning. good morning, manus and anna. the s&p closed at a record high for the first time in more than a year yesterday. the ftse 100 entering a will market. asian shares of crime to levels last seen in april. looking at the index, up 1.2% at the moment. japanese shares driving those gains in asia. headed for their steep two-day climb since february. announcing that fresh round of stimulus. take a look at what is happening with the yen as well. one of three spot 08 on dollar yen at the moment after it had octoberest loss since 2014. very much risk on today. partly to do with stimulus out of japan. partly to do with strong u.s. momentum. are lead do with some certainty forhe u.k. and sterling up
a third day with u.k. getting closer to having a prime minister of course in the fold of secretary theresa may. 176 on sterling right now. one it to show you crude oil. brent over two days. oil has halted that drop near a two-month low. this is ahead of data forecast to show that u.s. inventory fell for nathan week so we are at wti and juston about $46 a barrel on brent. manus: it is day two of the air show. one of the biggest events of the year for the industry. course to dominate conversations. guy johnson is on the ground. he spoke to the qatar. here's what he had to say about the impact of brexit on his business. >> other than the foreign exchange of peoples due to this brexit, we are not affected. we still have the numbers.
we still have passengers traveling in and out of europe. as a matter fact, more and more people are flowing into the u.k. because of the lower pound. anna: talking about brexit.ities around die joins us on the ground. are other voices talking about opportunities variant tuned with treason may who is called on everyone to look on the bright side, to paraphrase. terrible sensea of relief at the show yesterday when it was confirmed theresa may was likely to become the next prime minister. i think people were concerned about the insecurity of a couple of months of and inventory fight to see who would be the next pm. a probable sense of relief. thes trying to look at bright side but interestingly, here is a bit of the hole. just over a 15% stake in iag, the owner of british airways and
iberia. we have had a story of bloomberg talking about the idea he may be looking to raise that stake up to around 20%. now, i ask you about this. this is what he had to say. are 15.24moment we and we went to stay at that level. we are long-term investment so thise confident that relationship between us and iag will continue growing and we will keep on an offending from each other's purchasing power. this was ad him if brexit affect. there is considerable concern that the north atlantic routes will slow down as a result of the uncertainty surrounding brexit. he was very clear in dismissing that but i think a lot of people will be looking at the story and thinking maybe it is wise to bite his time and see what happens. but given the foreign exchange story he mentioned in the first
sound by talking about sterling lower, maybe there is an opportunity. he does not feel comfortable thisg that decision at stage. manus: i need to know what happened yesterday. we have gone from a very summary guy johnson to a very dark, sober, navy blue. what is the tone from yesterday until today? guy: that jacket is drying out, maine is. at around 1:00 yesterday the cameramanened and my paid to show the carport behind the stand. there was a river running through it. they ended up having to shut the our office so the entire site was evacuated. so basically, it was a boat show yesterday. everyone went home early except around and managed to get our cars out. that is a nice way of putting it, maine is.
back to you. manus: i want the cream-colored jacket back. that is what i want. anna: we talked about floating, and in a we? brexit. went into the vote with little momentum and off-inspiring race. the lobby group says businesses eud clear leadership on negotiation. joining us, acting director at multi-assetd of portfolios and adam, great to have you on the program as always. obviously your report is necessarily a little backward-looking but makes the broadpoint i suppose that things did not look brilliant going into the referendum for the u.k. economy, at least the momentum was not great. >> to go back to that segment where we said the economy was in a holding pattern during the time right before the referendum, what you saw was
growth flacking for lots and lots of firms in both service and manufacturing set her. seeing that slackening since 2014, this is a two-year pattern. the economy was already slowing down. was alreadyiment slowing down well before the referendum. you andt them, what do they know about this. three some may. -- theresa may. 126 people want to know more about the prospective head of the united kingdom in terms of her background. what do you know about her? is she the woman to lead brexit? what does brexit mean for the bbc? >> stability, clarity, and action. whoever's going to be prime , you need stability on the market. clarity over the timetable. and, action on those things within westminster's sphere.
what we really want is to get on with governing. many things the u.k. government can and must get on with to promote business confidence and lucas -- in addition to negotiating. anna: some commenters have suggested that when she talked about getting employees on board, limiting executive pay, taking action against predatory takeovers, some commentators like 2010 thised is just a start with theresa may, but what does that sound like to the business community? i represent,sses some of those measures will be attractive. particularly the ones on corporate takeovers and applying stricter competition tests to make sure they deliver real economic value to the united kingdom. they have been questions in the past. doesn't mean the corporate takeover and m&a should not
happen, but they need more scrutiny. when it comes to theresa may's other proposals, i do not think they would want to see extension government intervention and pay ratios but that is in matter for boards and shareholders. if they want to strengthen that, that is a different story. manus: from a political point of view, there is a operable sigh of relief you say. there is a global businesses. showcasing their wares. from a global perspective, does he u.k. just turn itself into the bahamas? do we just turn ourselves into a tax haven of anonymous kind of thing? went down defenses. get onward investment going. i do not think theresa may is a woman to do that. x i do not think she has expressed a preference. probables to be the outgoing chance then perhaps a probable incoming prime minister's preference.
deficit ahead. that was initially planned for the end of this parliament in 2020, now it does not look like that will happen. you cannot really be aggressive on tax reduction if you have debt reduction at the top of your agenda. they have to raise productivity, not just about tax cuts but also public investment. infrastructure is something this country needs to focus on and that means some trade-offs between new expenditures and the potential attacks cuts. so the picture will be much more nuanced. aboutshe is talked infrastructure. i know you have been lobbying for some clarity about the liver.of eu to the theresa may was one of the contenders in the leadership battle who would not commit to allow them to stay. the reason, a logical one, is
you need to have reciprocity from the rest of the eu on the state of the u.k. nationals iving outside of the u.k. but what are your thoughts on theresa may? many of them make a contribution to the businesses i represent. they need to know those people making a contribution do not have uncertainty hanging over their lives. it is fair and right. we would like to see a swift confirmation those people will be able to stay long-term regardless of the outcome of negotiations because we need their skills to propel the productivity improvements larry is talking about in addition to the skulls of the u.k. nationals. when it comes to infrastructure versus tax cuts, we are very clear as to where we would sit as a business community. the infrastructure is much more part. corporation tax cuts, most of my businesses are looking for that. they say it is the cost of doing business first place. hiring people, energy, and so on
me more than paying tax on profits. manus: will talk about the japanese in a moment. ¥10 billion. i have heard different figures. what would drive, what would compensate that shock to gdp? what do we need? think it is something that is probably an ongoing exercise rather than a one-up. it is not just building a high-speed rail and being done with them. it has to do with education and moving the u.k. forward in the newly digitalized world. others brick-and-mortar, things also. it is continuous. anna: any preference for chancellor if george osborne won't keep the job? >> i don't care her it is, i want them to invest. i can start with digital. move onto to energy and transport. anna: thank you, adam marshall
♪ anna: perhaps still in shock over the strong gains at yesterday. vista for bailey, his role of ceo. industry veteran. meanwhile, he says despite brexit results not being what hoped-for, the company will move on into the weaker pound might be held. manus: he spoke with bloombergs francine look why and an exclusive interview.
>> it is certainly not a decision i wanted or believed in but it is what it is a end am always a glass half full and we now need to move on. it was done, the referendum was the in the right way and decision was made. now we need to find the right path to what brexit might mean. the important thing is getting stability and clarity on the future that affects people's everyday lives and businesses. francine: you're probably the sot famous british expert, he will compound helps? >> it helps in certain ways. we have always done business globally. we trade all around the world. any trading agreement is something we will always work with no matter, you know, where, you know, what happens throughout this process. francine: this is the first time people will be able to look at
the catwalk and buy directly from the runway. >> the september show is a change in the way we are treating and thinking about the show. historically, the shows have been very much and insider event media in ofd the course, all of our buyers. the way we flipped it is we have been doing very intimate, private previews with our buyers and with some of the press. and in september, it will be much more customer-focused and we will be able to -- you will be able to buy the collection immediately as soon as we do that show but i am very excited and going back to our earlier conversation, change is good. it is interesting. on founder was sitting there his knife, which in latin means to move forward in and i have
always been a big believer in moving forward and excited both on in executive level and otherwise. anna: christopher at burberry there. need to reduce the base of their record effort as it approaches the limits of the bond market. the central bank is aware of this and based on common sense should start reducing the pace of bond buying in the future. the governor has said he will expand stimulus if it is needed to reach the 2% inflation target. .arry hathaway is with us the end is coming. the end of quantitative easing is running. bonds toruns out of buy eventually. >> i think that comment slightly misses the point. of course they are buying a great number of bonds and they
cannot forever increase that amount. however, the government can. it is clear the government will pursue further fiscal stimulus and while those bonds will be sold in the primary market to investors, they will be scooped up by the bank of japan in the secondary market. there will be no impact on the gop due to fiscal stimulus. industry the bank of japan has reached the limits on a even unconventional monetary policy. further deep cuts in the negative interest rates are untenable in japan and further, outright purchases of assets bring very little as they know. what is happening is a shift toward fiscal policy. by the way, we see that in the united kingdom as well. physical policy will be more expansionary. perhaps europe will lag, but we will not expect if early from a german-led europe that they would use a different policy. this might play a fairly interesting role in bond
markets. if we are going to see an expectation monetary policy can no longer provide unlimited purchases or interest rates, does it begin to signal the end rallyt now multi-decade in government bonds because without central tank further support, you could begin to argue the bottom is not far away. my suspicion is that is in fact the case. to us abouttalk your investment strategy of that is the case. what is the time horizon on that kind of fall? people been saying for many years this cannot go any further. yields cannot continue to keep going lower. you seem to be suggesting we will see that turning point. >> in a number of markets. u.s. 10-year with treasuries. we're playing it from the short side. we do not like duration fixed income in the run bonds and that is kind of because it was over q1 andleration
evidence by the most recent survey data but it is probably around the idea some of these changes in global monetary conditions probably reached their peak. idea that the bank of england was having strong easing following brexit's may be slightly overdone. brexit may not prove to be the big calamity like some such as the imf that it would be full's -- would be. brexit was a big negative shock. the ecb may have to start thinking about when it will end quantitative easing. the paper tantrum took place against simply stopping purchases, not the monetary policy so i think in some sense bond that yields are too low and should move higher and that is how we are position. manus: you a masonic a man who was convinced that of that was the scenario and physical liftoff, the ineptitude of monetary policy, where'd we go than with the fed?
is that sounds as if it could be a fed more in place than the bond market anticipating. we are not anticipating major hikes in the u.s. until 2017 or 2018. >> that last point is the relative one. it seems to be against economic data, notwithstanding certain around the exit that the market is underestimating when normalization will return in the united states. i think it is entirely possible the fed will lift rates by the end of this year which is the far cry from the forward curve. the repricing of the possibility whether it helps or not, just moving the probabilities back towards that becoming a realistic policy will become enough to push up interest rates, probably more the front-end of the curve. towards the two-year note or maybe at the backend the distal surprised by these global monetary conditions but nevertheless the path of least resistance is for somewhat higher rates not a further rally of the bond market we've seen over the last six weeks or so
will some anna: to think the bond market will come with you, larry? what easy for capitalists down the road to catch up with your view? >> as someone who would expect that and would, as it were, be the beneficiary, you would want the market to move with you but beyond that trivial comment comment seems to me what will drive this process is a story of improved u.s. economic performance recognized be the federal reserve upcoming statements around the next meeting. less of the risks we are already seeing manifest in markets around political uncertainty in the u.k. or japan and what is also important is china does not represent the next source of instability. anna: thank you for joining us. manus:athaway will stop up next, when it rains it literally pours. the s&p 500 hits an all-time .igh after a 285 day
