2:35 am
futures are pricing in 20% of a hike. what more can central banks actually due to boost growth? we asked joseph stigler. >> they are trying hard. the fact is there is only a limit to what monetary policy can do. they understood that from the very beginning, it's the 2008 crisis. fiscal policy has not been there so they have been the only game in town. what we are now seeing, particularly in japan, is not enough. they will have to do something else. guy: they will have to do something else that's exactly what will they do? that question is vexing investors. the boj meeting is somewhat of a sideshow. we are joined on the set this
2:36 am
week by our guest. what we get from the boj this week? willthink the boj meeting be the most important because the yen market has reacted with anticipation to something different or more and investors are trying to figure out what .hat more maybe -- may be/ caroline: are you trying to offset any reaction, volatility? >> we have had two basic positions around the bank of japan. a weaker yen have to be part of the banks policy to help the japanese economy from a fundamental perspective. long-term interest rates, particularly very long rates, 30 year in particular at zero looked full value to us particularly even the extent to which monetary policy has
2:37 am
already been implemented. ratese been short the yen and the japanese yen. the banks meeting this week. some different measures have been priced in. it is hard to say what those measures will be. guy: people are expecting a reserve twist that would steepen the curve up. you think that outcome is likely? >> the markets reaction has been in anticipation of that. it raises long-term lending rate which makes their business model more profitable. some type of steepening yield curve in our mind is one of the possibilities although these things are hard to manufacture. you do not want to get too cute, or to intricate with the policy.
2:38 am
intricate with the policy. guy: you are hinting that the markets are in the dark. there is a whole toolbox of mechanisms that the boj can call out. a risk reversal. the market is getting back to neutral because it simply does not know. if you were to put the distribution of outcomes on a piece of paper and work your way through it, how broad is it? >> the most likely scenario is that they do nothing. middle. the write down the fairway. on the other side, further rate cuts. further stimulus. for the buying of etf's. or, a twist function like trying to steepen the yield curve. or something more extreme, but
2:39 am
it is too early but to incorporate a fiscal package. the most extreme and the markets reaction would be the greatest. because that would have implications for the world when they think about central-bank policy. are we reaching the effective round of central-bank policy and therefore will governments get involved? that will be important because it will change investors minds set not only for the bank of japan but for the ecb. potential he. and the bank of england. that is why this meeting is really important. sensene: i want to get a when you are looking therefore at the depth section. we were looking at the cost of hedging and that making japanese investors potentially going out to italian markets. when you factor in the cost of hedging, you had a positive yield but when you brought in the italian debt, you were at
2:40 am
zero. you are getting zero yield if you are a japanese investor because the cost of hedging. playing in this? think that is right. that last statement is what we are anticipating. as european debt becomes less attractive on a hedge basis for japanese investors and it the bank of japan is successful in steepening out the yield curve then they become back in favor with japanese investors. of thoseurchases securities have fallen off dramatically. markets still offer value from a yield perspective but we have to watch this dynamic that if the bank is it vessel, particularly in making longer maturity jgb's
2:41 am
best 30 year yield are at around 50-70 basis points. that becomes more attractive to japanese investors. that flow of funds will be critical. guy: scott is going to stay with us from black rock throughout the program. up, hothouse issues. the lending curve. we will head to beijing. behind schedule, the u.k. talks about the preview of the auto locate -- automaker. loss is herl opponents gain. we will look at another big loss for the chancellor. this is bloomberg.

2:47 am
prices rose in 64 out of those 70 compared to 51 in july. quite an update. you see if you brought down into the numbers, that cities like beijing where prices rose 3.8% month on month in at bus -- in august. in shanghai, they rose 5.2% in august despite cursed put in place by policymakers -- despite put in place by policymakers. rvescu akers increasing the down payment rate you have to put down before you can get a mortgage. on the flipside, there are still smaller cities, where growth is weaker where there are large inventories of apartments they need to selloff. it is a bifurcated market that
2:48 am
policymakers are looking at but very much of concern are the hot property prices. the people's bank of china say they are concerned about bubbles in china's property market. another key concern for the pboc is not just the property market but their own currency. the exchange rate. a huge surge on the overnight. you have been talking about it all day. this is the cost of borrowing. borrowing costs surging up 50%, the second-most we have seen on record. talk to us through this. pboc sending off bearish bets it seems. tom: that is right. that is what the analysts are saying. 15.7% jump in the overnight. the yuan rate is an indication

2:50 am
maybe in december? >> the important thing to remember is that basket management is an important part of their process. i also think that these spikes in rates can be technical in nature. we need to see how they play out in the next few days. from our perspective, the most interesting investment options in asia are not china but countries like indonesia, india, and even korea. there is good value for the rate. emerging markets are still a buy. think certain markets that are still attractive. especially the higher-yielding local markets are where we are focusing. in terms of monetary policy, expectations are that there will not be an increase in rates in
2:51 am
september and they will evaluate the situation. the u.s. general election is coming up and then in december the fed will move to raise rates. that is consistent with their recent approach. rate increase policy. that should be positive for emerging markets because investors should not be surprised by a hawkish fed. guy: we will not ignore the fed. scott will stick around. caroline: we are now minutes away from the open. we are not going to ignore which particular corporate movers you should have in your eyesight today. including volkswagen. there should -- there could be thousands of lawsuits filed by the end of the day. we check in. this is bloomberg. ♪

there are some problems they are having and they need to get that sorted out. airbus yield to date, down 50%. caroline: looking at -- down 15%. it is also happening with volkswagen. it could be up 0.5%. that is some of the calls i am seeing. this on the back of the provision of software to volkswagen. berlin-based company iav. it prosecutors from the u.s. looking it over. vw has been exposed to a huge number of cases. we see the court cases rushing in.

3:00 am
new york steps up security following saturday's bombing in chelsea. we will bring you the latest. looking at the open. nine seconds away. quite a big selloff on friday in european equity markets. let us see how monday morning will deliver. is the ftse 100. climbing a little. a bit of momentum. the dax and the cac following. london, a little bit better than it was on friday. when we saw the market under severe pressure. cac is up 0.8%. a 1% move going through in london and a near 1% move being delivered. here is the stoxx 600. see that spain and the

united kingdom are both up strongly. france doing well. they'll jump trading -- belgium trading up as well. s function. place your bets, i say bets loosely. whs allows you to put your number in four key things happening this week. -- for key things happening this week. nejra: we have not seen a lot of movement in bond markets generally today. in japanar yields staying unchanged. in europe also, not a huge amount of movement. 87 basis points. that is where we were before the open. we will keep an eye on this but at the moment, this is quiet. moving onto the stoxx 600 and digging into the sex -- into the
3:02 am
sector of health. green across the board. financials are the best performers, up 1%. energy stocks behind come up 1% as well. materials up 0.9%. and now energy leading the game. of the wti and brent today. and starting with airbus. this is called a little higher in line with the call, about 1% after the report that they are a restructuring and cost-cutting plan in october. i also wanted to look at mighty. they are operating at a profit. materially below operating views. down quiteen called significantly at the open. we will see if that matches the
3:03 am
calls when the stock moves. we have reports after the close on friday that u.s. prosecutors are investigating whether bosch was a part of the problem. , nejra.nk you what is the portfolio affect? how does it have a ripple effect ? a reverse twist. everything is correlated right now. >> the most important thing to look at are the returns. 7% in some of the core markets and higher in the emerging markets. that represents the continuation
3:04 am
of monetary policies as we know them. quantitative easing. lower rates. it isy respects, i think a market directional view from a data perspective. the full market. how it will behave if we get a dovish bank of japan and if the fed stays on hold and if the ecb incorporates additional measures. we are back in the same kind of environment where we would see positive returns on fixed income. if we don't get that, we have to deal with interest rate risk. it is a directional view. this week is important. caroline: how much are we seeing at the moment a rotation out of fixed-income? are you starting to hear from your investor based that they are wanting to start to move out of the sovereign area and get into the different pots of credit? >> investors are looking at the positive returns and they would
3:05 am
be surprised at how well the broad market indices have done. looking at not owning the full index of a product. is a moreld say diversified approaches what investors are looking at and less index like moving forward. forcedvestors are being to move into more liquid assets. and that has been a trend going on for a while but it has been gaining momentum. if we get into a world where it is harder to call what central banks are doing, is that an advantage or a disadvantage? >> it depends on how you think central-bank policy will play out for liquid assets. classese only two asset that have yielded more than 4%.
3:06 am
in order to stay invested in those in the same way, you have to believe that central-bank policy will be positive for those asset classes. the concern i have is that if we are shifting from quantitative easing to something different, fiscal spending, that signals rates are going higher and therefore you may want to pots in your investments -- you may want to pause in those investments. caroline: hold that thought in terms of rates going higher. looking at the repercussions of one asset class and particular. nejra: what i have on the chart s&p 500 etf. the three year average. the reason i am showing this is you have goldman sachs saying that with the expectation of highere -- possible
3:07 am
rates in the u.s., investors are not paying enough attention to sums talks that could benefit from that. they are missing a chance in fromnies poised to benefit a rate hike. a group dominated by financial firms such as bank of america and bank of new york. what this chart is basically showing and what goldman sachs is saying is that investors are doing a lot of lumping together of different stocks and they are not getting bullish enough on the groups that are more sensitive to higher rates. the cost to hedge them is no different than the broader s&p 500 index signaling a loss of an opportunity there. caroline: great charge. let us get back to scott from blackrock. get into bank credit? was pounded on their risky credit on friday.
3:08 am
isone of the areas that lagging has been the european arena more generally including banks, bonds, subordinated and senior, and peripheral bond markets. those are areas we are looking ino because they have lagged the rally and they are still attractive. you have to consider idiosyncratic risks as you saw with deutsche bank but more generally the italian banking system and portuguese banking system and in europe in general, and how the banking systems are doing. you have to do the credit work on those individual names and understand the risks you are taking but i would suggest that the financials look attractive to us overall in europe. guy: isn't that what mario draghi really wants? , yes.many respects
3:09 am
q we seems to be working in europe. you could debate if there are other factors which are helping the inflation data. but the data seems to suggest that the ecb's programs are working and they will keep doing that. thatis there an assumption for example henkel -- they can borrow money and then they use that for something useful and productive rather than buying back stock or something else. can we make that assumption? >> we are assuming the wealth affect meaning that by lowering rates you create economic activity driving the inflation rate higher. there are distortions that are a result of that. companies borrowing at negative rates is one of those distortions. many are saying that that is what we have to do to get to our objective. the ecb is different from the
3:10 am
bank of japan in the sense that in the bank of japan's situation, it doesn't look like the policies are working. they have not hit the inflation target forecast by the bank. in europe, you get close to the target. in many respects, the ecb is being encouraged by the economic data it is seeing and companies will take advantage of that issue with negative rates. guy: scott is going to stay with us. thank you. caroline: coming up, looking for alternatives, angela merkel's loss and the afd's gain. in afd performed strongly the regional elections. we look at another big loss for the chancellor. -- weng markets discussed. stiglitz says it is time to give japan a break. what are the expectations for

guy: i am watching the program in new york, i am up early. why would i want to change my habits of recent past and invest in europe? what will it take for u.s. investors to change that mindset? look atinvestors will the political situation and want more clarity and unfortunately they will not get that in the near-term. they will want higher interest rates and they will not get that either. they have to look at the opportunities in the asset class. whole swath of negative yielding bonds across europe in many different countries and it is clear that the ecb policy will be on hold until december and therefore we will not get much clarity. it is hard to make a bullish case except for some pacific cases in specific countries and opportunities for the european market more generally. caroline: i am that new york is envisioninguy
