8:01 pm
the openingaight to market in asia. david: let's get a really quick rehab -- recap of what happened overnight, not a big one. you have an overlap of constituents, but have a look at mexico and brazil. that is the emerging markets, so we had goldman joined by jpmorgan. seeing the funds will continue. the e.m. weibo continue whether it is equity or incomes. equity, goldman says in india, that is where e.m. equity managers -- manages income in both countries. let's move over to asia. four markets open at this point. when you talk about australia, of course, you were looking at a fairly large drop this morning. we are basically getting hold
8:02 pm
back sharp and signaling some pullback in the equities market with some relations there. no major data is due today, so we are not going to be expecting , hopefully not in a bad way. fx markets, a few things to know. the dollar-yen pushing the tides overnight, little bit about that at the moment, 106-11 handles. that being said, we're not really getting a bid you would expect when it comes to japan. the aussie dollar, let's talk about this. and ite drop yesterday started this time yesterday, a little bit about that. rebound. off, 9/10ny cut that the dollar. above
8:03 pm
nintendo, i want to talk about that. i want to share what it is doing right now. they basically doubled. 230 times earnings, imagine that. yes, let's wait for that to get underway. it might take a while. i think we have a full screen chart to show you where we are right now for nintendo. we get 5%, 10% more on this pokemon go rally in that takes nintendo's market cap above general motors. imagine that. it is not apples to apples, but, nintendo go and under bloomberg the 7974 go. yvonne: thank you. the international monetary fund says the u.k. decision to leave the eu means no increase in global growth this year. we now see the 3.2% expansion down .1% in the same as 2015. we are taking a look at the new scrappeds if they
8:04 pm
brexit out of the picture. they actually raise the forecast for this year. >> exactly. they said the brexit created an overlay of rest on world growth and that is how they put it. 3.1% is what they want this year. looking a little bit better for next year, but that is still revised down from 3.5%. one of the things they did say was that brexit will play out over time, but it depends on maintaining confidence among investors and businesses and confidence. the forecast assumes the u.k. and that you, with the new trade deals, avoid large increases in economic barriers. the deputy director of research and his essential tech was uncertainty is the key issue. relatively benign outlook ahead with a gradual
8:05 pm
reduction in uncertainty, and less of a hit coming from financial market volatility. having said that, uncertainty is high. >> what they call severe situation, global growth could impact 6.2% this year and we have seen for example, the u.k. falling into recession and investors and confidence fell internationally. before the brexit, the recession was not as expected. that was another factor that led to imf to think they could divide up the forecast, but now it looks like it is down. thene: they really slashed japan forecast to 3%. the yen had a lot to do with this, right? >> the yen is a key part. emphasizes it is not unhelpful. intervention is really in the way, so it helps pull out
8:06 pm
japan's economy. what they want to do is reload the three areas of economics including fiscal policy and they said that they have seen volatility recently but not what they call disorderly moves. the imf chief economist said that the recent call for helicopter money in japan shows the need for fiscal equality. >> it is a very colorful metaphor, but i think it obscures the real problem, which is that conventional monetary policy has been bearing pretty much the entire burden of maintaining price expectations and supporting economic activity. from otherugh health government policies, for example, structural policy or fiscal policies. boj is more limited going forward in terms of what it can do to help speed up the economy. yvonne: the imf siding with the
8:07 pm
u.s. when it comes to intervention. they kiss much. let's get to the first bloomberg news. donald is officially the republican nominee for president. the tycoon home state of new york pushed him over the line for the 1237 delegates he needed at the convention in cleveland. while his domination was almost guaranteed, if you trump protests arrested day one of the protest. the central bank should correct lies at its policymaking next week. they said the boj should add more stimulus and scrap references to unlimited policy space in achieving its 2% inflation target in two years. he says markets will lose trust in the central bank if it continues to remain bullish. a board will meet this week to discuss growing pressure for a high cash unit.

western australia is partly because for this. coproduction down 7% and for your production is off 2% to 227 million tons also missing some revised numbers. not a fantastic picture for them and probably why we are seeing the share price coming under a bit of oprah -- pressure. yvonne: with the exception for iron ore, it was a better picture for bhp? >> petroleum did quite well. 240 million barrels. bhb signaling production will decline in the next fiscal year --ween 200 million between and 210 million. bhp does say it is going to take an impairment of one or $75 billion on the coal business. this ceo says bhp can continue

national gas trading in europe by the end of the year. the commodities trader is said to be downsizing capital intensive units which traders and support staff meeting the company. they have had a turbulent 18 months with a rally in commodity prices and the company's stock falling 45% this year after a 65% drop in 2015. the mobilephone carriers could prove a rare bright spot in this company struggling with a stronger yen in weaker confidence. they are reporting the highest quarterly profits in a decade. analysts expected provided income of $8 billion in the months through july. they are benefiting after the government told them to cut. $55 billion takeover offer was rejected.

8:15 pm
tomorrow. talking about this, the nintendo affect her go because mcdonald's in japan started offering those pokemon toys in those happy meals, so that is certainly lifting sentiment for the stocks once again. mcdonald's japan close to 8% up in tokyo. back to the markets. brexit has definitely chill the imf forecast. the next forecast says the brexit crisis may offer good news as much you performances are met. we have a chief economist joining us now. great to have you in hong kong studio. i am curious why you say brexit to be a good thing. >> first of all, the lesson is clear. in 1992, we saw a dramatic drop in sterling and never sensed in 1992 drop, employment went up, gdp went up and everything was imprisoned. what i am really saying is that is is not that there are negative fallout in consequences from brexit, but the fact that we need to change is so
8:16 pm
implicitly ignored by the market everything will day. the fact that we spoke about this is a clear indication of this. i remember when they were pokemon cards in the 1990's. we are really just repeating the same story over and over and not getting anywhere. yvonne: we see europe divided and a lot of uncertainty coming out of this u.k. referendum, not to mention you have turkey, early -- italy. is there the political will to push for more change? >> no. i think brexit becomes an excuse to actually, how do we redefine the eu? the prime minister is talking about how the eu needs to be redefined. we have a french election in the early parts of next year and the election about the contract. i think what we need to say,
8:17 pm
there are two ways to get to the situation where you implied, but the question deals with the reality, we are just taking the fast-track through the brexit, and to some extent, that is very good. we know if nothing changes, we would get a stronger dollar and that kills the emerging market. it kills the export sections of europe. i think the best sign of that, and what i most nervous about is the credit market. the credit market is showing clear signs of yielding. it almost i dictates you cannot move. the fed, as they go beyond, if they do do what we expect, they will kill the banking sectors. yvonne: talking about the treasury, some calling for 1% on the tenure yield. -- 10 year yield. does that sound like a recession? >> i think the market is
8:18 pm
ignoring this. we have tighter money in the markets. they have been tightening for the last three quarters. the banks have more capital but the return as we have seen through goldman sachs yesterday and others is ready difficult to reach. others are just loss. say the report is as useful as a snowplow in july. [laughter] yvonne: one thing i thought was notable is japan. they are down to 3.3% this year. i thought it was interesting what we can do when they meet with the boj, do you think they can actually add stimulus and in what form? some say they need to correct these two big lies and admit that they can no longer buy bonds in the market anymore. >> i agree with that assumption. read offnternally, i of record with the boj three
8:19 pm
years ago, that they agreed to percent is likely in an environment where you have transfers. the fact is, they can do whatever they want in japan but it will not change their ability because the reforms remain unanswered. the third arrow has never been launched, will never be launched . i have been to japan three times the last six months and it is great country, and we probably underestimate where they are in terms of the credits i. the boj and their ability to save the japanese economy. yvonne: that raises the question, the imf downplaying intervention with the yen. do you see at any point that is warranted, that we do need them to intervene> >> you know, the japanese press is not the most open-minded in the world, so a lot of time, what you need is a strong yen policy because only through strong policy to actually get
8:20 pm
the japanese society to reform because of the electorate process, which we will see in july, because of the roles you have relative to the city, it is almost impossible to implement any political changes into the economic system in japan. the only reason you can enforce that is a stronger yen. i think i'm asking the more important question, where does the change in japan come from? it will have to come from stronger currency. yvonne: stronger currency. interesting take. helicopter money, is that absurd? >> it is another monetary illusion in the world. if i gave you the value of $10,000 hong kong dollars, you would need to get another $10,000 hong kong dollars to maintain the same labor of purchase. as you would expect me to give you next her, you would not spend the money, instead putting have the money in the bank keep the others. of course it does not work. you cannot create something out of nothing.
8:21 pm
the fact remains the same, we are short on reform, politicians with a vision, short on the ability of even having a willingness to change the economic system, but the beauty there with thest ability to change. the coming french election and certainly in the u.k., brexit is a catalyst. it says, we cannot continue to go down the road of not doing anything. yvonne: we have hit that fever pitch. finally, i want to end on china. the forecast of six months and percent. we have seen some stabilization in the figures, but one it comes to how they are reaching these numbers, it is all on credit. >> absolutely. that is not an exclusive chinese story, those are hong kong stories, european stories, global stories. positiveas a very
8:22 pm
response to china was the ability to change. use credits as a short-term mean to create some stability in the economy. i think there is plenty of evidence, if you look at the ability of china to compete. just this morning i read that the financials are up for still companies. we see every single day changes and the chinese story, that it is improving. as you said yourself, i think stimulus from the chinese economy is short-term. we need to change them being export driven to consumer driven. yvonne: great. steve, great to have your input on this. joining us. up next, how microsoft looks at

8:26 pm
customers clearly shifted to the company's internet-based software and services. ceo reorientede the business around the cloud over the past three years and it appears to be more than paying off as we see in this particular court. yvonne: su, it is a sign that pc business is improving now? >> that is difficult to say. the cfo said these are legacy products. it came in better than expected, but i will get to those in a minute, a decline was forecasted and they certainly exceeded the forecast. including some readjustments, if we look at the numbers was 22.6 billion. profit came in at 69 versus 58, so that is certainly something that investors can hang their hats on.
8:27 pm
it acquired a phone business from nokia and also some job shuts were they did some cost-saving there. we did see a slightly positive performance in the pc division as the cfo pointed out. this includes the windows and xbox products. those sales fell but it was slightly better than the estimates, so the net is in the positive. in terms of the takeaway from the major wall street investors, one has this to say after the report came out, it was comforting, he says, the key underlying trends are in place, at least the long-term trajectory is intact. he said there was some concern last quarter but it appears based on the stock performances, though seven delayed and that could translate into a positive for tomorrow's trading.

8:48 pm
way possible. we do know the retail investor in china loves the trade. stephen: they do. you are right. neither of these two companies have forecast during the big run-up any big increase in earnings. it is a mentality. retail players dominate the china market. it is kind of human nature to like cheaper prices. if everyone is piling into it, that is what they are doing. the small companies like a boost in liquidity. they feel confident that the business can grow fast enough, and that will counter the dilution of fact that comes with more shares. because there are risks that one company, the food company i mentioned is down $.15 in the last couple of weeks. they launched a probe because laster, regulators were looking into possible manipulation of shares.
