half, more than all of last year. law from thew regulator and china that for bids money market managers from buying corporate debt rated below aa plus, but no such limit on cds, so they have been piling into the cds on the perception that they are perceived to be safer. corporate bond defaults have tripled this year. corporate's of old as well more than 3 billion yuan of planned bond sales. parking it in short-term paper right now. >> i don't get it, why aren't these smaller banks considered risky in this economy? >> you would think that. their nonperforming loans are rising. i will get to that in a minute. they also have a similar threat their corporate
clients, but you have to keep in mind that there has not been a bank failure in china since 1998 . the banks are generally pretty sound and backed by the government. a senior analyst at china merchants holdings to say about why fund managers are looking at the certificates of deposit as less risky than corporate bonds. see banks astors the last entity that will default. as safe assidered policy banks financial bonds, which are omar is close to the sovereign. it is about these implicit guarantees. not necessarily being attached to the bank, that they are waning when it comes to corporate bonds. >> thank you. in the u.s., it is said to be one of the most-watched party conventions in years. republicans are gathering in cleveland to formally appoint donald trump is next presidential nominee.

other polls have showed him further behind. he needs to make this cap right behind me starting tomorrow. picked his running mate on friday, hoping to close that gap, but some of the reactions have then mike pence who? there are not a lot of people who know who he is, so tell us about the choice of mike pence. pence who is almost emphasized by donald trump, spending 29 minutes talking about himself big -- before getting to the indiana governor. he is not a nationally known figure, but he is a stalwart conservative, advancing the case on not only less a government tea party style government, but also on the social end of things, issues like abortion, planned parenthood, gay marriage. the question of mike pence can -- can he bring in undecideds and voters on the fence.
that is what people are not too sure about. donald trump these to grow his voters to have any chance of competing with her given how poorly he does among latinos, african-americans. a huges to turn out portion of the white vote and the undecided vote. it is unclear whether mike pence will turn the needle on that. security obviously will be tight, but what has the mood been like after these baton rouge shootings? deftly an issue. you can feel the edge in the city. we have talked to a lot of police who are not sure if they are well-equipped to handle something major. there is an open carry law with guns, so protesters will be allowed to have guns on them even when they are protesting. that is a big issue for the police. we expect a big biker presence here. there is no question the police are on edge, but they're doing everything they can to keep it secure. >> we hope it will be a safe convention. >> indeed, thank you so much.

lending facilities. >> why is that? rrr is a broad-based stimulus measure. that it is not hit what it needs for some time. in february, they started looking at the midterm lending facility to allow banks to help companies. they started serving banks back then and looking at ways to ease corporate debt through these type of facilities, so it is a signal that the pboc is becoming more sophisticated in the way they are looking at markets and managing the economy. >> windy think we will get stimulus out of japan? think we will get stimulus out of japan? go big or goy is a home moment for japan. it was a real disappointment, voters coming out of the
elections last week, 56% said they believe in abenomics, but with the stimulus package this small compared to what was expected, it really is a disappointment. they need to double down or triple down on abenomics. the inflation expectation down below 1% last year, and one of the big benchmarks of success for abenomics was a 2% cpi. >> europe is skeptical, why? we haven't really seen fiscal stimulus work in japan. and 2000s, we saw a lot of fiscal stimulus move out, but inevitably this stuff gets siphoned off into inefficient projects or it does not go where it is intended to go. the finance ministry is going to invest in things that look at
productivity, things like total , that'sproductivity where it really needs to go, but those are longer-term investments. this is not a short-term activity. is a quick bump, it would be misplaced. issuehas the demographic that is not in your story, but they are eking out to gdp growth they're there should not be any. if they want to have long-term sustainable gdp growth, they have to invest in tfp. thean you mention what is one key figure to be watching this week? i would be watching indonesia, central-bank there. i don't think they will change. i think they will stand pat, but with global risks coming around, we have to look at current is like the dollar, the yen, and how that will affect emerging
markets. i think it is a good indicator of where other markets may go. >> all right, we will leave it there. thank you so much. tony nash from complete intelligence. ahead, singapore bondholders bracing for defaults after to energy companies ask for an extension of repayments. we will have details next. this is bloomberg. ♪

butter exports does that -- declined by 90%, apple exports 86 runs in 1975, but a few years later, it was down. young lad in new zealand, i remember the profound impact the plunge the country into a recession, brought on a lot of pain for the reform. so it is welcome back, britain. betty: welcome back, britain. what happens next? how do we get things moving? reporter: malcolm turnbull observed they will not be out for several years, but he is eager to work on a new trade deal right away. at next time they meet in person, that will be at the g-20 in china in september. betty: one down possibly 11 more to go. thank you so much. joining us live from sydney. talking about china's property prices, it will give us indication on the health of the

and february when the dominant commentary was there is some sort of apocalyptic hard landing coming for china. whatever the numbers, that clearly has not happened. in a market, in an investing environment, awash with brexit, attempted coups, if china's gdp lives to fight another day, maybe it is not a bad thing. yvonne: it is kind of ironic. we look at china as a bastion of instability a year ago, and now we are kind of saying, we had another economist saying, they might be kind of stable. looks like it is all sort of go for the second half. dan: they seem to have settled range. 6.5% to 7% growth it is down from 10%, but look, that is not a bad thing. everyone says it has slowed. also, the transition to a
service and consumption-driven economy, which is what everyone said they wanted, that appears to be more or less on track. the number that stood out on friday among other things in the world was the increase in aggregate financing, lending, we will have to see how that plays out. betty: it absolutely doesn't. that is the big risk factor for china. but mentioning the consumption-driven economy, i believe some of the numbers show 70% of the expansion we saw in the last quarter came from consumption. that is good news, right? dan: it is the rebalancing that everyone from the imf to , apexus g-20, g7 governments said they wanted. it happened. what is the problem? betty: exactly. we havet note, because got to look at other parts of the world, particularly in
turkey, do you expect in the of the weekend, to affect the global economy at all? dan: to affect the global economy, probably not. there is a sense that, we thought this era of coups in major european markets was behind us. there has not been a successful one since the 1920's. this is a surprise, but as the weekend ends and the trading day starts, there is no safer control. it is president erdogan's government. betty: we seem to be pointing back the clock on a lot of things on what happened here come a brexit, so many factors. thank you so much. executive editor for global economics. much more ahead. gold posted its first weekly drop since may.

but location wise, it is straddled the middle east and europe, so a crucial pipeline. is this development actually bullish for oil? reporter: i think it extended into this week, and clearly the coup gave it some traction. it could be positive for oil prices. it looks as though it has been a one-day event. control seems to have been brought back by the government. things are settling down. i guess oil prices are higher because of the broader uncertainty across the middle east, but at least from this particular event, is concerned, a bit of a shot in the pan. the two but did not happen, people are saying. when it comes to oil prices, there is a solid advance above the $50 mark for two months now. is it more of demand concerns or supply disruption?
of thewe are seeing some supply disruption start to moderate. clearly nigeria is turning to pump again, canada, the wildfires there, clearly canada's production is certain to recover. as we come out of the back end of the driving season in the u.s., we are left with high stocks of gasoline. expect oil prices to slip back over the next three months, potentially back to $40. it has got a bit of a downside here. betty: let's turn to gold. gold has been a real winner. ever since brexit happened in late june, and continuing the rally. we have a chart showing investors are finally for the first time in six weeks, they are pulling back, they are cutting back on their gold holdings. either hedge funds they are looking at. -- these are hedge funds we are looking at. does that mean the rally and gold will come to an end?
wayne: gold is trading two things, uncertainty, all that sort of type of approach. it is also trading interest rates in the u.s. the better u.s. data on friday clearly got people starting to think the fed would actually do this. -- hike this year. it would be a negative event for gold. if you look at the medium-term, we are still holding gold as an insurance asset, if you will. if there is anything you pick up in uncertainty with u.s. etc., evenr brexit, things in the middle east, you see people trust us back to gold -- trespass back to gold. if we moderate on the sixth to 12 month view, we think very well supported by negative rates in the u.s., even if the fed is
behind the curve. rates will state negative for a while. betty: so when the fed has been pretty much a nonfactor in gold. so you are saying these two tracks are why we are seeing the rally. but whatever the fed does, it doesn't matter. wayne: what the fed does will matter in the short term. if they decide to move on rates in december like we think they will with ubs, yes, you will see a downside to gold in the short term. as markets readjust. we have to remember interest rates are only seeking the first hike in 2018 or late 2017. so there is a lot of repricing to go in the interest rate market. that will be short-term negatives for gold. nonetheless, the uncertainty in the world continues. that is what happens with china growing up in the second
quarter, the u.s. election, and how the brexit negotiations continue. we think that uncertainty will hold the gold price higher to what ordinarily it would be. on a 12 month horizon, we see 1002 under $75. -- $1275. betty: we will talk more about other metals in the second half of the year. we will have more with the wealth management wayne worden. ♪
our viewers that shows think and the reality, -- rally -- that upws zinc and the rally, over 50% since earlier this year. some are saying this rally sets the tone for other metals, that in fact where zinc goes, other metals go. do you agree? wayne: i think it will be a mixed performance across the middle. generally, we expect the middle -- metals index to rise. and the data in china signals stability in china is good for metals. but like your earlier discussion eluded to, -- alluded to, china is becoming a consumer driven economy. we have seen the private side continued to sink while the public side is calling up the balance sheet. that tells us housing will
continue to cool in china in the second half of the year. that is not great for copper and things like iron ore. on the consumer side, it is holding up very well. we can expect to see cyclical upturn in, consumption in the u.s. as well. this means it will improve across asia. that is good for nickel and think. . zinc they have supply side that are tighter than they were years ago. it is a mixed performance, but definitely zinc and nickel going to be out performers. yvonne: looking at your allocation, you have a 50% draft on palladium, 10% platinum, 10% gold. why no silver? it had quite a leg up against gold. wayne: we really like pgm because nobody else likes it. and we have seen improvement in
the industrial economy over the second half. silver is very well loved. silver has had a much better rally them what gold has this year. largely because it was lagging goal during the periods of uncertainty. it is starting to catch up. having said that, positioning in so over, positioning of etf or other finance investors is sitting at record levels. even the volatility of silver, we actually prefer those more to the industrial cyclical upturns we are experiencing at the moment. that is why ptm is the favored. gold is more of a risk hedge, i few will. as we spoke about earlier. insurance intle that basket. yvonne: real quick in terms of iron ore, seeing china turn out a record amount of steel in june. what does that mean for prices? wayne: certainly prices have
responded. nonetheless, we still think they attract lower into the fourth quarter. we will see the impact on iron ore prices, it should be there as a has been another years. expect prices to track down, a touch below at $50, sort of $45 a pound is he going to the fourth quarter of this year. yvonne: thank you so much. coming up from ubs wealth management, economies. betty: plenty more ahead on bloomberg television. on monday, tom shields is speaking exclusively to it imf management. don't miss that interview at 1:30 p.m. new york time, 6:30 in london. you have a lot ahead on this asian trading session as we kick off the week. yvonne: thanks for coming in on a sunday evening. we are going back on concerns over what happened in turkey. the yen is weakening.

let's get straight to the markets in the asia-pacific. investors not as concerned about what happened in turkey overnight after the military coup has failed. are seeing the aussie stocks flat, shrugging off concerns. the aussie dollar extending gains to a fifth of 1%. in korea, the kospi just getting underway. japan is closed today for marine day. well,spi looking flat as but the korean currency seeing sizable moves, weakening. two closed markets, including japan as well as thailand. no trading there, but the yen weakening on the back foot of what happened in turkey overnight.
it looks like the impact of that failed coup in turkey could be contained as president recep tayyip erdogan makes a show of strength. we are looking at all this. concerns fromthe investors are easing a bit. rosalind: for example, friday, the turkish lira fell. bounceback.eeing a at last look, just under 2%. it had fallen by the most in more than eight years on friday, so it is making a bit of a recovery. goldman sachs, its forecast for dollar, and0 to the 325 to the dollar in 12 months. it's previous forecast had been for 295 and 325 in 12 months.
