5:04 am
francine: i think it was great you talk about trump. he is a child of diversity. he seems like someone who is trying to do his best. when you look at his background, it is refreshing, especially at a time where brexit happened, i would argue that this is the person that london needs to lead it, because he shows london is open to endeavors. tom: he throughout the first ball to the mets twins game. done that ball -- he she did better than i would've done. let's do a full battle on the data check to set up monday. equity bonds currencies commodities and nice pop to the market with the euro weaker dollar stronger. it catches a bid after a lovely three days. -- after an ugly three days. sterling with a modest 129 handle early this morning. francine?

5:06 am
1, 2, 3, 4, fed meetings and some of that is due to the economic malaise. tom, i also had something that i had to work on. if you look at the terminal, it was the correlation between vicks and yen. you can see that correlation is not as correlated as used to. that chart very shortly. joining us now for the hour, chiefbevan, he is economist at hsbc. thank you so much for joining us. james, if you look at the boj and the fed, it is an awkward timing. the boj on the morning of wednesday and the fed later on. boj becauseould be if you look at traders, they don't know to think. james: the boj looks limited room for maneuver. he would have to come up with a new storyboard for next march
5:07 am
because the amounts of government bonds that he is going to want to purchase is running dry. yet we don't see -- i am quite bearish. paul: we don't think we are going to see a lot from the bank of japan did there is a lot of expectation around the idea that they might deliver various things to it will be similar to more of the same, that we think more asset purchase expanding the range of which they are preparing to buy. also potentially we think there could be another cut on rates. they could not a little bit off. we don't think there will be a big move. we don't think there is a bazooka coming. that is what the market is looking for. francine: what if they come back and say you know what we have done so far? the negative rates are just not working. step? market a worse
5:08 am
paul: are they going to review and come to the conclusion that what they delivered has not worked? are they going to reassure us that what they have been delivering has gradually been working? they need to do a little bit more the same but it is going to deliver the inflation they are expecting. that is in more likely pat. -- more likely pat. tom: james, i want to talk about sterling with the 129 print for a cup of coffee pit we ended , is thisth saudi oil linked to the two central-bank meetings on wednesday? is there another story? james: i think there is a story about relative weakness of sterling, therefore i would expect sterling dollars to get around to around 120 to 125. continued sterling weakness.
5:09 am
very interesting negative correlation between shifts in the oil price and dollar. i expect their relationship to remain strong. i am expecting in global terms, sideways movement in the oil price and dollar. tom: let's bring up the sterling chart. this is where james bevan is mentioning the yellow circle. that is the migration into the vicinity of 120 out of the middle of next year. hsbc with that i lie or call -- that outlier call 110. what it comes up to is a shock. new york has had a shock with these awnings you wonder -- with these of bombings. james, what do you think? james: i am worried about global markets at the moment. i fear significant gaps between expectations and reality in terms of the numbers that are coming through. negative surprises have
5:10 am
delivered four unpleasant markdowns in the last five years. we are going to have another one at around 10%. tom: what is the shock out of asia? paul: we are not forecasting in a shock out of asia in the scheme of things did we think the asia story is holding together well. we still have birth in china holding up pretty well. the bank of japan is in focus this week. i don't think it is going to be a big deal at i don't think they are going to deliver a big change. francine: let me bring you over to the number of terminal. this is symptomatic of what we are seeing at the boj. the blue line is the volatility index. the white line yen-dollar rate. you can see the currency trading with the volatility index and you can see the correlation. ises, are you concerned this
5:11 am
a symptom of what we are seeing in europe? means that people worry about what central banks can do especially when it comes to negative territory. james: we are increases in savings, both over here but also in japan. we will see more of that and the yen strength is precisely what japan does not want to achieve as a result of this policy. if you said to me what would be better for the global economy, i am not sure i would share the point of view. i think it would be smart for the japan to try negative rates. we have been at this for a long time, it is not working and we need to step back from quantitative easing. they will not do that does they'll be too big of a wrench. i am thrilled to tebow the of you here to get started on this monday. we will continue in our next hour on american capitalism, on

i am taylor breaks. this is bloomberg. francine: thank you so much. more on the markets, more on central banks, more on what is happening on wednesday, probably the most important day of the calendar in a while. let's welcome back james. if you're positioned in the market for nothing much from doj and from the fed, there is still a big risk that you can be taken by surprise. >> i think there is more downside risk than upside. i think there is putting of room for disappointment. what is the one thing you think markets are too complacent about? >> i worry the markets are taking growth for granted and suddenly states are being
5:33 am
supported and we will have sudden t translation of growth. the suggestion there has been an overstatement of the expectation. i worry there will be a markdown of expectation. tom: the world is terrible. you have been brilliant on have encourage to stay in the markets. ftse, it is the extraordinary, the gloom in the chart. can we actually breakout from those recent highs over 15 years on the ftse? we can, and we blow. i worry we have to have a correction first. i worry we have to have a correction first because too much is baked into the cake. i am however confident that, in due course, we will break out.
5:34 am
maybe we will have a correction of a continued full market. tom: it comes from corrections -- which is it? >> i should say that we should expect earnings to remain in line with revenues. certainly there is a political risk. labor is awarded a slightly larger slice of the cake. toget reductions similar revenues. look toould really partial september and the idea .f units in pricing power i think it is fascinating to see what the unit dynamic is an all this disinflation out there in pricing. likeine: i wonder is, just
5:35 am
central banks, everything mirrors itself. when you look at how companies are structured, is it very different because we had a different currency but also we have been through so much more pain in europe? >> when you say we have been through more pain, we have had economic pain. we did not have the corporate restructuring that the u.s. had very early. the u.s. structure was quick to cut cost and make sure they were better positioned. argued earlyanies -- there are relatively easy labor laws now. francine: i want to bring you to one of my morning must reads. this is a beautiful piece. the title really says it all.

5:37 am
greater than the price of bread to just prior than the first world war. that relates to a huge shift in the cost of production, efficiency gains, technology. the problem i have with the current surge of technology is this is an industrial revolution that will risk production. remember, during world war i, we were doing surveillance event, we do not go back to the the pulley on a quarter. ofe us your history productivity. why is our capital labor and productivity dynamics different now? forget about world war i. -- what is the
5:38 am
difference? >> we undoubtedly have better practice to be when it comes to getting in touch with people. home.n't want at information.ss to all of which makes for a more important home life. worry, if you predicate future spending on the premise of 2% real economic , weth plus 2% inflation will not get anything like either of that magnitude. i swear i saw his grandfather dinner with sir

5:43 am
reports from algeria say that if they call a meeting .each a strategy opecwe are hearing is discusses the possibility of a meeting at a later date. what is going on? there seems to be a lot of ins and outs that oil investors are trying to figure out right now. if you take a look at the data that came out for the week before last, you can see that speculators pared back the long and short bets on the movements of oil. that is a relatively unusual occurrence. it suggests that no one knows
5:44 am
what is going on right now. we see it go back and forth, back and forth. tom: i love the idea of a binary that. the binary that on surveillance grinding higher. other bed is collapsed on oil demand dynamics. i don't you are living in the land of oil supply. what do you see in international demand dynamics? is a reallyt excellent points. we have seen a couple of years talking about the supply side of oil. we hear a lot less about the demand side. people talk about still strong demand coming from india, china, but if we see that global economy slowed down and get the emerging market route coming back, the kind we thought the beginning of the year, that could definitely knock demand on
5:45 am
its head. the key would be what happens to the developed market thanks. on that note, we have a doj meeting tomorrow and affect fed meeting. tom: we have shown this many times. we go on down to 29 and this tight range we are in. you are in the middle east. int is the level of sweat september 2016? can tell you, the consultants have been calls in. we're seeing more of a acceptance from government officials now. the major source of controversy is the opec production freeze. there are so quiet opinions that if you have a supply glut, the
5:46 am
thing to do would be forced some higher cost competitors out of business. that is an unpopular opinion, but one that needs to be considered given we have the flattening of the cost curve that has changed the dynamics of the entire industry. francine: thank you so much. james is still with us. when you look at oil and the relation between opec and oil, it seems that for the moment, it is unlikely opec will freeze at this moment. just in case, they will not go below the amount it is at the moment. >> i would say that one needs to look at the issues on board. the producers are producing day.d 190,000 there'll's a
5:47 am
that is a swing factor that is important. there is a bias down within pricing. as far as the investment implications, i see only two that investor should be considering right now. they will find it very hard to .ope on the services sector, i see possible over speculation. francine: if you look at bp, shell, why them? >> because of the cash flow characteristics, the discipline of investing. let me do a data check now.
