looked like to return to volatility was going to be a multi-day event that is no longer the case. you can see it has turned a little bit lower. it is still above 17. it is above the very low level for that index lately. i am going to call in audible up here. we will take a look at the sectors that are leading in the gains we see. it's pretty broad-based, even if it's not a big game. financials are the only group in the red at this point. many of the groups beat up friday are coming back today. telecom and utilities, consumer staples are leading some of the declines. some of these groups have flip-flopped. if you take a look at oil prices today, they have been declining. this is the 10 year yield that has been bouncing around. oil prices are down about one third of 1%. they were down much more.
they have been climbing back along with stocks. marathon and occidental are still trading lower. we had occidental being downgraded to underweight by jpmorgan. quickly, if we can talk about a couple of big retailers, callan is upgrading walmart and downgrading target. walmart will increase and continue its positive u.s. traffic. target is going to take some time to improve its grocery store presentation. all of this is playing into what is now a turnaround in the u.s. stocks. mark: you are helping us. we were down 2%. the biggest fall since june. we are now down 1.2%. personal household goals -- goods are flat on the day. the gauge is down by 3.1%.
that's the most since july 6. the stoxx 600 is the lowest since august. how are things turning around in the last week or so? you were talking about technical analysis, which brings me to this wonderful chart. this is the stoxx 600 over the last year. the blue line is the 200 day moving average. was aappened on friday golden crossing. this happen for the first time in 20 months. the last time that happened, the stoxx 600 rose 20% and reached a record high. that is significant if you are a technical analyst. let's look at the volatility gauge. chart. a 12 month we rose for a second day. we rose 20%. rise sincebiggest
january last year. we are at the highest level since july. we are nowhere near the level we .aw pretty -- pre-brexit we saw the depreciation, but we are nowhere near those levels. in auguste disruption in the financial market. the bond market seems to be at the core of the movement we witnessed across all offset -- asset classes. this brings me to france and germany. germany is creeping above zero. they moved to zero for the first time since july. we're back to 0.02. germany went as low as 18 basis points in july. france saw a record low yields. the yields are creeping up the 10the eurozone in
year portion of the yield curve. vonnie: let's check in on the first word news. we have more from new york. trump says the health of the candidates is now an issue in the race. hillary clinton has been diagnosed with pneumonia. she appeared to stumble as she was helped into a van. this was after a 9/11 anniversary ceremony. donald trump says he will release more health records. the president of the philippine says the u.s. special forces in that country must go. he says he will review the policy of letting u.s. troops fight muslim terrorist groups on the island. he says their presence makes matters worse. americans have been on that island since 2002. china is saying don't blame us for north korea's nuclear ambitions. a spokeswoman said the korean nuclear issue is all about the con put between north korea and
the united states. question the value of economic sanctions on north korea and if the problem can be solved through consultation. rebel groups in syria are skeptical of a cease-fire. the truce was announced on friday. it takes effect today. one group aligned with al qaeda is not signing on. part of the truce cause -- calls russia and the u.s. to attack al qaeda in syria. brazil.arched in the rally was organized by the leftist party, some are linked to the him preached -- impeached former president. global news 24 hours a day powered by more than 2600 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries, this is bloomberg. mark: thanks.
on fridaye jolted with more willingness to raise rates. made itfed president clear he does not want to make any waves in advance of the meeting later this month. he offered up this assessment. >> notwithstanding a few monthly reports, from the institute for supply management for example, i am satisfied at this point the conditions warrant that serious discussion. are countingrs down to 1:15 p.m. in new york. let's sort things out. specialistto the fed paul donovan at ubs wealth management. is a lot of tantrum talk around, whether it's the tantrum 2016, is it right to compare
the backup in on deals we have seen across the globe in recent days to those two key events in recent years? ofl: it is a dizzying height 0.03%. 1994 styledly the selloff when the bond market actually had applications. i don't think we can claim what we see today has any meaningful economic implications. i think a lot of the problem that we have at the moment is central-bank policy has become a lot more complex than it used to be, it's a blend of monetary policy and regulatory policy. tokets find it difficult confirm how policy will impact the economy and the economic outlook. mark: there was a wonderful piece saying how the boj is leading global bond markets.
is that how you view the global macro standpoint right now? is the boj leading things or not? things, howing important is the 20th and the 21st when we get the unveiling? paul: i would be concerned if they were leading central-bank policy. independence has been compromised. i think that's extremely dangerous in this environment. is -- awhat we have is divergence. the federal reserve has been fight -- tightening quantitative policy. a sharen a following as of gdp. that is tightening policy. they have tightened on terri policy and i think they will do so again. frankly given their in placement -- inflation position, they are behind the curve.
the u.k. has special circumstances, they have been fairly cautious. i think they are stacking the bond market. mark: when it comes to the bond market, japan is leading. u.k. i would say it's the its leading. if you look at the gilt market, regulationulated by and the pension fund industry in particular. with a combination of regulation and central-bank hikes, every market is trading below their value yield. that is going to continue to be the case. with the 10 year at 1.67% now, is there a disconnect between the u.s. curve and the fundamentals of the u.s. economy? got in think what we've the united states at the moment is an inflation problem. there is a disconnect, yields
are too low. i think that will remain. virtually every inflation measure in the united states is running at or above its 20 year average. the sole exception is a couple of headline numbers that have the lingering after affects of low oil. core cpi, not the matter which one you look at, they are running at or above their 20 year average. the bond market and the monetary policy is very far from its average. that is the real disconnect. vonnie: do we get an increase next week? paul: if i were running the fed yes, but unfortunately i've got the wrong accent. i think they are going to pause. i think the factions of the fed have not been pulled together closely enough yet. i think they probably raise in december. i would not rule out september entirely.
there is an attempt to try to move things along. i think what we get is a signal in september and a decision in december. mark: what's the signal from the bank of england this week? we heard a lot of comments from mark carney. what can we add to what the governor told us last week? paul: i think it's unlikely we would get further rate moves. the effects hit the economy. a lot of the banks were very slow to pass on to mortgage players. it hasn't hit consumer spending. to try to move on rates now would be too soon. i think the bank is reluctant to take rates lower anyway. we could see some quantitative policy. i would question whether that is going to achieve very much in the current environment where we've got uncertainty over the referendum, implications still , thehe labor market
inflation story has yet to fully hit. i think caution from the central clearly signaling they are ready to act in the future. mark: thank you, paul. it's good to see you. state payment to bloomberg. the chicago council of global affairs. coming up, we look at the stocks moving in the early u.s. session, including transportation stocks. in case you missed it, we are barely in the green for the u.s. majors. the dow is up 6%. the s&p is up 1/10 of 1%. even the nasdaq is up about 3/10 of 1% higher. equity markets around the world stay in the red. this is bloomberg. ♪

two big canadian fertilizer groups to merge. is this good for the industry? does that mean we are facing more years of down trodden crop prices? >> it's good for the companies. that's a difficult industry. they will be able to cut out cost and get more purchasing power and impact prices. it's good for them and that's why investors like the deal. when we broke it, both stocks jump in we see positive reaction. they talked about shaving -- saving $5 million year. that's why people like the deal. other any kind of estimate about how many? quotes i have not seen any figures on job cuts. if you're looking to cut out that much in costs, it could cost jobs. they are going to merge into one head office. they will look everywhere to try and trim the fat. mark: it would not be right up
we had you on set and did not talk about our favorite deal. ayer and monsanto. they are in the in game. when do we think the in game will actually be? >> we think it's coming soon. it could happen this week and that would end over three months of back and forth and they are not quite there in terms of price. it looks like they are on track. as we see, it's not done until it's done. mark: you will be here to tell us all about it. thanks. david cameron, the former uk prime minister is to stand down as an mp. he is and him p in a district. we hear the press association tells us that he will stand down. that will trigger an election in that district. referendum.brexit

where health has emerged as a top issue in the presidential campaign. hillary clinton's undisclosed bout of pneumonia threatens to turn into a political crisis. as she was leaving, she was caught on camera stumbling into her van. for more on all this, let's who was kevin cirilli at that ceremony. does clinton need to be a lot more open about health issues? is it becoming something that will darker for the rest of campaign? kevin: there is no question that she is facing several weston's yesterdayhandling of in new york city. for about 20 or 30 minutes, there were a lot of questions. number one, where was she? would she be coming back to the surface -- service?
it leads to questions of how the campaign is communicating with reporters. donald trump has also not released his health records -- full health records. a campaign aide telling me he would make a physical report available that he took last week. facing questions on their transparency regarding health. that video of hillary clinton leading -- leaving the 9/11 memorial service truly shaking this race. vonnie: there is no absolute mandate to release your records. why don't they both just do it? are they trying to hide something? kevin: i have been all over the country covering donald trump's campaign. when i talked to undecided voters, they tell me that they think that having access to health records is part of their decision-making process. as we have seen, bloomberg had a
report over the weekend, wall street has taken concern with regards to not having transparency with the health records of the two candidates. tradition anda there are new questions for hillary clinton to answer. schedule forer monday and tuesday to get back on track from this illness. very rare is a instance where donald trump has kept his mouth shut. i know that those close to him think this could be a defining moment in the campaign. definitely, they feel, a defining moment. the health episode coming less than 24 hours after the fallout of another clinton gaff when she told private donors that half of trump supporters are a basket of deplorable's.
-- deplorables. he is going to take her on head on for that comment at a speech in baltimore. a colleague of mine and i spoke with multiple campaign aides. -- they took a look at that video and i think that the response that everyone had when they watch that video was what is going on with hillary clinton? this is someone who was clearly sick and needs to get better. -- the obvious worst case is that she drops out of the race. no one is beginning to discuss that, are they? kevin: nobody is discussing matt. -- that. mark: what is the worst-case scenario? kevin: i think the worst-case scenario for the clinton
campaign is that this is a larger trend of the lack of transparency. there have been questions that democrats tried to display as merely conspiracy theories. concerns onushes hillary's health. the democrats already pushing that and saying donald trump should also be held to that standard and also have to release his health records. when you take a step back and you look at the past weekend for the hillary clinton campaign. when you take the health episode and you added in addition to what happened with her comment in which she called essentially half of donald trump supporters that gets. that puts them on defense. we are ancient closer to that first presidential debate. you can bet that donald trump and his campaign will be pushing that in the debate. mark: great to see you, kevin. let's move on and talk about
politics markets. volatility resurfacing after cruising's murphy -- cruising smoothly. one of the reasons we have seen this new volatility is the expectation that hillary clinton will win the election. thet time to recalculate risk reward of a regime change in the white house? it might be. it is hard to suss out any kind of market view. it is a discussion that is important. you have to be careful on how you look at it. there has been no discernible outcome on how markets are viewing any kind of preference on whether markets have a preference. if you look at trump's rise
through the republican debates and getting the nomination, there was no clear reaction positive or negative from markets. is really hard to interpret the news over the weekend. it is difficult to figure out what markets view in terms of either candidate. we do know that a clinton -- it'scy would largely the same party as the incumbent president. a lot of policies will probably overlap. i think you can objectively say there is less unknowns involved with this president's -- that presidency. assume thatets there will be a transition with trump ar. mark: there is still an element of complacency. expectations, she will prevail in november have been a
factor in the markets. markets are beginning to wake up and think about a donald trump victory. are you saying there is still an element of complacency? perhaps it will be at -- it will be a debate. will donald trump's silent debate work on hillary clinton? perhaps i could put it in perspective. , we despite the 2.5% drop are still pretty low in general. there is still a complacency within the market to a certain degree. how much of that tied to -- is tied to politics, we will find out. we are also in an election year. vonnie: what's fascinating's this -- this year's we are
seeing a reaction outside of the u.s. you see a reactionary mexican peso. that is a country that will probably be very affected by a trump presidency. oliver: the rhetoric would point that way. two things i want to point out. the first thing is the caveat. you are looking at financial market versus news market. they are two very different frequencies and two very different data sets. that being said, we can obviously see that this is not a coincidence. popular hasg more not been so great for the pay so given all of his -- peso. it tells us that markets do react to politics. in terms of what each politician will do.
trump has talked about his spending plans. that would be for infrastructure. very eatingot of viewpoints on what each candidate would do. varying viewpoints on what each candidate would do. vonnie: we also don't know a lot about their fiscal plans. the great unknown is whether those plans will be implementable because we don't know what happened with the house or senate. i wish it were something more discernible and more exciting to speculate on. at the end of the day, i think that is why that until there is a very clear shift towards trump inconsistent polling or a major news that puts him front and center, we will assume a clinton premises -- presidency. would that means is a
continuation of many policies that are there and also this gridlock. gridlock means things don't get done, which means things don't change. vonnie: oliver renick, thank you. vw hasn'tng up, turned a corner completely on the emissions scandal. tomorrow, bloomberg will have -- will be live from buenos aires. we will have exclusive interviews from the president and bp ceo bob dudley. -- the argentinian president and bp ceo bob dudley.
