where's the terminal rate? that is going to be well below historical averages. finally, our other policy instruments going to be helping? that is going to determine where equity markets, the bond markets, and currency markets end up. >> he oversees 1.7 trillion dollars total. i think the home it is not alone in his fatigue. but the markets are reactive to that kind of speculation. how do you keep nine on what is important? >> i am definitely sympathetic to the fact that markets have been keying off of policy. bond yields rising, we have seen economic data. it has generally been risk off.
the question is where is that coming from. is that coming from the ecb and the bank of japan? i think it is probably the latter. we see a pretty drastic change in the propensity of the committee to raise rates. they said it themselves they went down to probably one hike. we think it is probably going to be in december. we see it has been very persistent. we are seeing a u.s. economy growing at a slower trend rate. they want to be accommodated for a little bit longer. we have been sort of convinced and we think that narrative gained traction on the committee, that will keep them pretty accommodative. now shifting focus to the boj
and the ecb, i think there is a sense of the credibility and them pushing harder on the accelerator. maybe they are being more complacent these a fee inflation relative to target. markets are reacting to that. it is massive and we are speaking to a lot of our colleagues this week who have the boa atssentially the center of things and the global bonds market. whatsoever sort of actions do you expect next week and house the global bond market going to react? is not a lowk it bar for the bank of japan. i think they need to do something. think would has also thrown a wrench and how markets interpret the bank of japan is the fact , they have policy been pulling that lever.
they deferred the tax hike into the future. , to the form.s monetary policies, i think they need to do something. how much they need to do to satisfy markets becomes more speculative. you had a speech two weeks ago feel confident in our tools and bond yields rose on that comment. there's clearly an air of skepticism. >> we have seen a shift over the past several weeks globally among bond investors into shorter duration. is that something jpmorgan is doing as well? >> i think it is fair to say we are bit more circumspect about the long end of the yield curve. we have this view that has been fairly finely balanced.
economic growth is accelerating, inflation is picking up. going to move. all those things push bond yields up. led by aggressive policy and the rest of the world pushing it down. that balance is starting to come under a bit of pressure and maybe we start favoring the domestic hackers argument a bit more in that debate. >> you said it is going to be key to our asset allocation. you also say that i've urgent story, which fades, it has already been priced in. what does that mean for now for equities versus the about -- versus developed equities and emerging-market equities? >> we are leaning a bit more
giving aging markets, fundamental story. it is a bit of a momentum trade. it is true neither the u.s. or equity market or a emerging markets do well. implicit view of equity markets is the idea that the dollar is not going to rise from here. think we are happy so far as the for story isn't what it used to be. the u.s. is accelerating in gdp terms. even risk on and risk off events. you have had pretty significant risk sentiment. .nd the dollar is up when you put all those together a dollar that is not

find an edge for investors. it is not easy. the markets background. he understands a lot of the market better than the scientists out there. >> he certainly says so. time, is the pressure on more for somebody who is acting he sensually as a consultant, versus somebody in-house. isn't he auditioning every time he is consulting with these various banks? >> a lot of us have talked to him so he has developed a network of high-value clients. the family officers, the big names. now he's going would you pay me,

goldman is basically betting that these institutions would like to use it. boring, but it has $100 billion. this is big business. goldman did their homework on it. goldman, this will be part of them now. they have smart beta products, which collectively have over 2 billion. >> is this unique in that feature you talked about? the midday settlement? >> every other etf takes three days to settle. this is a unique feature. >> jpmorgan has a different one. >> jpmorgan came in and they want to diversify the alternatives fund. this essentially is a hedge fund for half the cost.
this is an actively managed hedge fund strategy. all kinds of strategies out there. this is part of a move by a lot of issuers. they are looking to poach some of the hedge fund assets. liquid all scum a means it's an , jpmorgan looks to democratize hedge fund investing. this is a another space that is intriguing. up till now they have only had smaller players. now you have jpmorgan looking at it. goldman has some products in this space as well. it has yet to be seen if etf's can replace hedge funds. goldmanorgan and getting involved it may make it more attractive to certain investors. the wallnot as though street players are sitting on their laurels.

you are watching bloomberg markets. let's check in on first word news. more from our newsroom in new york. >> hillary clinton says donald trump does president barack obama and the american people an apology for his role in the so-called further movement that questioned the president's american citizenship. hillary clinton: 45 years he has led the -- four five years he has led the birther movement to delegitimize the first black president. >> clinton says donald trump is feeding into the worst impulses that lurks in the country. a judge now says a british man accused of hacking into the u.s. government computer systems should be extradited to the u.s. to face trial. officials say lori love attacked nasa, the federal

i am looking on my bloomberg, we have had a comment from francois hollande, he says europe seems to be in a permanent crisis. it is not the ideal backdrop to this meeting. >> you heard it from angela merkel herself, this is critical . yesterday, she talked about this being a question of war and peas. we heard from the belgian leader saying that this is the moment of truth. do not expect any significant breakthroughs today. this is a movement toward an end goal in march, the treaty of rome, the 60 the anniversary, this is about a roadmap to say the grievances that remain within the eu that have been shown a light on since the u.k. decided to exit the eu.
you have immigration, a key concern for poland, the checks, in slovakia, worried about how you reset the one million people that came to the eu last year. you havethe likes of the terrorm threat affecting those in belgium and france. then there is the opportunity for the spanish, italians, to convince the youth that remaining in the eu is a way to promote growth and jobs. so many critical issues at the heart of the eu even before the united kingdom decided to leave, they want to show unity, the question is whether they can propose anything of unity today when it seems as though there were three very significant i did to five all camps. -- identify camps. mark: how do you revive confidence in the eu -- we have lost her.
hopefully we will get back to her momentarily, caroline hyde. you are there, i will try again. how do we get this significant for confidence in the eu when you have significant elections taking place next year in holland and france and germany? caroline: this is why many people feel we are not getting any concrete decisions, particularly on changes in the eu makeup in terms of the rules that it was founded upon. you will not get that when you mentioned political players with such political risks next year and the key question is how do you get such stability in the eu and go forward when you cannot negotiate with the united kingdom, still waiting on article 50. it seems as though behind the scenes, not on the original agenda to discuss negotiations with the united kingdom it is clear that they understand it
will start the article 50 will be triggered in the first quarter of 2017. that is apparently what was said to the italians. all of this brewing, still key questions ahead but still they need to first negotiate with the u.k. at camp or the political risks. in those elections, the french, the dutch, and the germans are fighting a rise in a wave of populism. how do you fight that back, you have to tackle the question of immigration. julie: it sounds like there is not much progress on anything, is there any area where you have seen fruitful discussions or there is a little more optimism on having fruitful discussions? eu, when can you expect anything to be made in terms of a quick decision.
it seems as though defense and security are becoming very much the forefront of the political debate. the united kingdom stop that, with germany and france that wanted to push through a joined up eu approach to defense policy, foreign policy, now with the u.k. out of the way that can be made progress on. it is convincing the rest of the 27 countries but a much easier task. they are making some clear moves forward in the agenda, its growth, immigration, security but now they need to outline that and decide how they move forward, particularly when it comes to the brexit debate. mark: great is eu. further comments from francois hollande, he says he will insist on a european defense plan and says the eu needs to focus on growth, security, and youth. julie: coming up, blackstone chairman and ceo stephen schwarzman was a big donor to george w. bush and mitt romney

miss, betty liu asked him if he thought the plan was achievable. stephen: all of that sounds wonderful if you could do that. the economy is a complicated thing. there are other parts of his plan. i do not know how immigration really fits with that. if you were removing large numbers of people, that has to adversely affect the economy. i believe that reducing the number of brackets to as few as possible and getting rid of virtually all tax preferences in favor of very low rates is the right way to go. betty: you are in flavor of a flat tax? stephen: it is hard to just have one bracket, that is not fair to
everybody at the more you go to huge numbers of brackets, then you have done nothing but state where you are. simplicity is a good thing. people. sense to it makes fairness. it makes it transparent. that is a good thing and countries that have adopted that type of policy have done quite well over time. i think that is fundamentally a good idea. forget how one person's plan speaks to that. betty: that framework is the right plan? stephen: it is important to do something about the regulatory burden on the u.s. economy. i think that feeds into productivity. because the regulatory structure
tax onlike a major economic growth. without economic growth and the regular people in america, the numbers will suffer. that: regardless of all of , or taking all of that into consideration, who are you going to vote for? stephen: i am watching this pretty closely. we have gone from just throwing actuallych other to venturing into policy. undecided?you stephen: i am an undecided. betty: if you had to vote today? stephen: fortunately i do not have to. i think there will be changes that occur over the next seven weeks as the candidates realize
that just throwing mud at each other is sort of boring. that was an interesting show. it was an interesting show to do that. saying,ink people are either i am turned off to vote or maybe i will not vote, or i will vote for one i do not want to. make pretend you were those two candidates. you would not be doing these accent thing. betty -- exact same thing. betty: would you abstain from voting? stephen: i have not figured it out, i have a sick sense that things will clarify. usually i do not make decisions in business or any other time until i see the pattern form. we have not gotten there yet and there will be i think change coming up.

barton. big night for twitter, it jumped into the live streaming game, kicking off with the new york jets battling the buffalo bills, part of their $10 million deal with the nfl. its first major foray into the potential lucrative sports broadcasting world, some might call it a hail mary way that twitter hopes will -- get more users and improve the stock price. a hold rating on twitter with an $18 price target, thank you for joining us. excuse the pun, is this a game changer for twitter? >> the jury is still out on this. yesterday's game was a success for twitter. we did not know what to think of it going in. we did not have president other
than what yahoo! did in london several months back and that was not a success. from a technological standpoint, it was a flawless execution. the stream was excellent, hd, not much buffering, a lot of ads. for us to change our mind and go to a buy, we would need to see a lot more of these and the impact of these on user growth, user how advertisers are spending their money on this medium. julie: that is always the question with twitter. the user growth and engagement as well and good but you have to turn it into dollars and cents to advertising use. if you look at the best case and worst-case a narrow, best case scenario for these kinds of partnerships, what kind of contribution could it make to twitter's bottom line? >> it depends on how many they make, today the nfl deal is only
10 games. it is one shot, hopefully if successful the nfl will come back and will do a multitier deal. later in the year, and next year, the national hockey league, baseball, etc., we understand they're trying to get right for soccer or european football. as they do more, they can start moving the needle. if you look at it on an individual basis, yesterday's game, even if they are successful, super-successful and they have a complete sellthrough of advertising inventory, we think it will generate between $2 million and $4 million last night. on a base of 500 main dollars, 600 day dollars of quarterly revenues come it does not movie needle -- $500 million, $600 billion of quarterly revenues, it does not move the needle. you have to have both overtime to drive the stock, more users coming to the platform and more
advertiser spending more on the platform. pitchwhat else would you for twitter to maximize value now? if this is not the answer? >> i think this is part of the answer. the other part is to dumb down the user experience. we still think that even with 300 million users, there are still potentially scratching the surface when you look at facebook at 1.7 billion. the big difference is twitter is too difficult to use for the average user. they need to give the average american and international user a reason to use the platform if ory are not used -- junkies sports fans. facebook has found a dumbed down version to start out, with a very easy to understand offering.
i think twitter needs to work on that. that is the $64,000 question they need to answer and we are not expecting an answer anytime soon. it is a long-term project. julie: thank you so much. the managing director and global head of internet and media equity research at cantor fitzgerald. twitter shares up 4% today, up 17% year to date. look atming up, have a stocks, 30 minutes away from the friday session, it looks like they will fall for the war the day in five. -- for the fourth day in five. the european closes next. ♪
