4:00 pm
u.s. stocks closing decidedly higher. the dollar defined and an oil rally. joe: but "what'd you miss?" scarlet: the fed leaves rates unchanged but schedules -- but signals a right that rate hike is likely. joe: and we talked to andrew 11 -- levin. we talk about what is at stake for the u.s. and german elections. ♪ shot up fortraight the market as we begin the market minute and equities certainly credit when you look at the major indexes after the fed press conference began, it was a straight line up and major industries are closing up more than 150 points. and gains for the nasdaq and s&p 500, the highest for them since
4:01 pm
september 8. joe: everything was up. not just equities, this is the mere image of a couple of weeks ago. everything is green pretty much across the board. matt: the majors went up for sure. you can see the gains of more than 1%. we have not seen that for a couple of days. i want to show you what brought up the markets around the world. here in the u.s., energy stocks were the biggest gainers spirit you can see that rose more than -- gainers. he can see that rose more than 2%. orasia, the financials arising up more than 2%. because of what the bank of japan dividend we will talk about that. people are saying they wanted to help the banks and they were up front about it. maybe that is a blueprint for the ecb and maybe the fed, but for europe it seems more important. and winners and losers on the s&p 500. we talked about microsoft and
4:02 pm
fedex yesterday. fedex took some time yesterday, shooting up today. you can see enclosed -- it closed up 7%. and microsoft, cuss -- cost are concerning investors. one stock i want to point out, harley davidson. you will see this on the bloomberg. it was up 60% year-to-date, year to date,16% going back to doing there was a possible buyout conversation. that was pushing the stock more. about 2%-2% higher. action, a lot of starting with the bank of japan early this morning. that is what kicked off the day. this is an interesting chart of the japanese 10 year yield. you can see it shooting up the positive territory briefly right after the announcement, then coming down and ending in
4:03 pm
negative. we are looking at yield curve targeting and the idea that the fed -- excuse me, the boj want to target that end. and that is the japanese 10 year right there. let's look at the japanese spread. a lot of talk about the boj wanting a deeper spread, it has been steepening since july. and that allows the financial systems to make more money. endhe boj want a deep spread, they did not get it today. it is coming back from the last few days. and now the u.s., we had plenty of action. it two-year yields -- the two-year yields unchanged. it seems to be sensitive to fed policy. the 10 year yield declining meaningfully. it was higher earlier in the morning after the boj, at 1.7. a flattening of the curve right
4:04 pm
there. and looking at the spread in the u.s., looking similar to the bank of japan chart. it was steepening in recent weeks, but recently coming back down to flat. that is the big trend, the microtrends of how the government bond markets reacted today. scarlet: and in normal times, we would look at the dollar and yen in reaction to the fed decision. the yen weekend -- weakened and a shift in policy. then you see it rebounded. the dollar was strengthening. declining.dollar and that has been gradual throughout the day. and then again rebounding. looking stronger, moving two big numbers against the dollar to a three-week high. and a couple of standout currencies. do, borrowinghey the dollars cheaply.
4:05 pm
the rand is not a one-month high -- is now at a one-month high. they were using it to pay local shareholders for the acquisition of acb miller. and uber getting a lift from higher oil prices. and a quick look at commodities. everything was green today. and commodities are no exception. crude oil a good day on the news that opec is going to have an official meeting coming up. and the precious metals doing well, silver tends to do well during this risk on exuberance. so silver is outperforming the other metals. scarlet: those are the market minutes. matt: let's get to the fed decision. a divided central-bank holding fire for now, signaling that a rate hike this year is still likely. janet yellen saying that it pick up in growth and labor gains
4:06 pm
have strengthened the case. and, three of the members dissented from the decision, saying that the fed should move now and the dot plot shows officials have scaled back the rate hike expectations for 2017. janet yellen spoke shortly after the decision was announced. janet yellen: economic growth which was subdued during the beginning of the year, has picked up. household spending continues to be the key source for the growth. spending has been supported by solid increases in household income as well as by relatively high levels of consumer sentiment and wealth. matt: joining us is the chief international economist for -- bing. thank you for coming. , do yousk your reaction think we got what we expected? >> i think the breaking news is the dissent.
4:07 pm
we have been interpreting all kinds of things, members moving in one direction, but today was the vote that matter. and the fact that three of the members -- matt: didn't we know that? each of them had given a speech in the past few weeks indicating that that was going to happen. >> previously we had the speeches where they did not decide, so now the voting is making a huge difference. and it shows expectations for the future, because now part of the committee has said i have been loyal, but now i feel like it is time to go. and i think this is in a port development. scarlet: i wonder if we are over interpreting the significance of the dissent? the bank of england, dissents are expected. it does not necessarily change the outcome. do we expect as there are more defense, the chair will be's weighted -- the chair will be swayed? >> there have been few dissents
4:08 pm
over the few years and leadership has been able to defense -- to convince people not to dissent. it just because you feel like a on the day of the meeting. in --u are saying -- see seeing a group of folks and i do not want this anymore and they want the rate hike to go higher. it is not a split as a said, but it shows that anybody that doubts, this is indeed where we are going. joe: the market is generally expect -- skeptical like these meetings are alive. and people are skeptical that the fed does not take politics into account. , politicsair said plays nothing into this, the election does not matter. market pricing is added to a 1% chance -- 21% chance for a november rate hike? should be higher?
4:09 pm
>> the market is underestimating the likelihood. the thing about it, if three members today say they want to hike not, why should they wait one meeting and another? the risk is you will have another member and then a really terrible situation, because we have not seen this. to your question, i think the chances of a november hike are higher. i still think december is likely, but i think she was adamant today about saying that the election does not matter. and that is a very strong signal that she is trying to say, that the meetings are live and she is trying to make sure that -- in that direction. matt: a quick look at the bloomberg, the next meeting is only a couple of days before the election. and everybody is assuming that that is why they are not moving. but why should it make a difference? about got a good question
4:10 pm
that. she basically said, we do not see valuations anywhere really, so her confusion is -- if we continue to see this, the unemployment looking good, more signs of upward trend, those measures and more broadly the inflation is trending up, all of that suggests we can check off the mandates, which means it is time to go. joe: in my of the three dissents, the center of gravity may be moving in the more hawkish direction. listening to janet yellen, she did not sound caucus. as she was talking about the unappointed rate and rarest measures of utilization actually have been approved for a wild, but she said there was more room to go and we are not there for inflation. listening to her thinking about the press conference, where do you think she is? >> i think to try to tiptoe around the different views, but
4:11 pm
if you read the statement, that was read to be hawkish. in that sense, there are different signals the market must interpret. is she trying to say, there were different views on the committee and i mean -- meant to make sure that it represented the different views. i think the statement is sending a strong signal about, we worry about these risks, we worry about every thing from brexit to china, to the referendum in italy and other things could be a risk but generally speaking it sounds like they feel comfortable about the economy. scarlet: one last question on the bank of japan. of course, they are shifting focus from the monetary basis to the yield curve. does this increase the chances of the boj reaching the inflation target? they said they are willing to go past the target, but does that shift do it? >> there are chances it could happen. the most interesting thing, there are a number of papers
4:12 pm
from 10 years ago, were they listed out the different options you have in the situation and one option on the list, targeting long-term interest rates. nobody else has done that. and now the bank of japan has opened that door. you do not want the ages rates to go up too much -- interest rates to go up too much, or down too much. so there are a number of issues that go into it. we have opened a new chapter in monetary policy, mainly the point in terms of what of the options for the central banks that want to try different things. will it work? it remains to be seen. so far the market reaction unfortunately has not been on their side. matt: thank you for joining us. suchpreciate your time on a busy day. scarlet: coming up, it into -- and your love and -- andrew

4:18 pm
andrew levin is the creator of the famed. plot and he joins us from new hampshire. let's talk about the. plot. we know that the fed officials lowered the forecast for where the interest rates are heading and they have lowered the projection for inflation and gdp. what did you make of what they have assessed? is it feasible? they are still looking for inflation to rise and where is the inflation going to come from if growth is coming down? andrew: i would like to think in terms of alternative scenarios, one of them which i think they have in mind for the baseline forecast is the employment rate will come down further, the wage growth will pick up more than has. and that will feed through two core inflation and then it will head closer to the 2% target that the fed wants to achieve. there is an alternative, it is
4:19 pm
important to keep in mind, that inflation has been around 1.5% and core inflation around 1.5% for the last four years in a row. even as an appointment is coming down. so there is a scenario where that is the picture again next year. i think when you look at the market forecast, the markets have been thinking all along that the pace of tightening would be very glacial. and it is increasingly looking like the markets got it right and to the fed was over optimistic. andrew: let me ask about the -- matt: let me ask about the fed and the mechanics of it. the previous guest said he was surprised that there was dissent, even though those members were hawkish in their speeches, even that they there'd that a day or two dissents was surprising. eight out of 12 regional presidents put in for a decrease
4:20 pm
in july, so he -- increase in july, said he takes that as a sign that there are maybe eight hawkish votes, maybe even nine. so do you think it is possible that a lot of members withhold dissent for political reasons, or out of respect to the chair? andrew: keep in mind that the federal reserve act -- the federal reserve has a rotating system for the voters and the board members from d.c. vote at every meeting. the president votes at every meeting and everybody else rotates every 2-3 years. when you are counting the eighth federal reserve bank presidents that recommended the rates, many of those people are not voters. the key today was that there were three dissents, three federal bank presidents that said they thought they should have hiked today. but i think what is notable is
4:21 pm
that terry yellen succeeded -- succeeded in keeping all the board members from d.c. on her side. they are the ones that vote every meeting. and she managed to sustain consensus among those five and the president of the new york fed and one of the other regional fed presidents. she seemed pleased today and i think it is healthy to have a good debate, just like the supreme court there will be times where there is a close outcome that is a good in the sense of demonstrating that there is real debate going on within the federal reserve committee. scarlet: stay with us, because we will have more discussion on the decision. andrew levin, former special advisor to the fed. this is bloomberg. ♪

♪ oe: "what'd you miss?" we are back with andrew levin, a special advisor to the former fed champion -- chair. fedlet: with a more divided , what is data dependent now mean versus last year when there was more consensus with what the fed did? has the definition changed? andrew: i think it is clear from the remarks today that they are heading toward another rate hike. i think if you look at last year, we went through the same sequence. they want to be careful and to deliver, they do not want to
4:25 pm
lurch or move suddenly, they do not want to take the market by surprise. happen this will fall, if there are not dramatic changes in the data, that at the november meeting they will not hike my but they will issue a more clear statement like they did last november saying something like, at a very next meeting we will be carefully considering a rate hike. as they did last year. and that will set up the markets to understand as we get into late november and early december, that the probability of a rate hike moves to 70%, 80%, so that by the time they do the rate hike in december there is no surprise. joe: of course the fed was not the only major central bank to go today, the bank of japan made headlines. wasinnovations, there explicit aiming at the rate for
4:26 pm
the long end and a willingness to let the inflation over should. people talk about how japan's economic situation may be the future for central banks and economies for europe and the u.s. has the boj charted new toolsories and told -- that the fed should consider down the road? andrew: sooner than that, i think exactly the lessons that the governor emphasized in her speech 10 days ago was that the lessons from japan are lessons that are relevant to the fed today. u.s.xtent to which the could get into a situation where they have a 2% target, but it is struggling to push inflation upward and is struggling to gain credibility with markets and wage and price setters, and inflation continues to fall short year after year.
4:27 pm
i think the federal reserve has a clear target of 2%, janet yellen emphasized they are fully committed to achieving that. and i think achieving it could easily mean that they follow a policy where they have some modest overshooting and i do not think they should be scared of that. and again, that would be theainly foreshadowed by boj, which is willing to entertain modest overshooting of the target. , thank youdrew levin very much for coming and giving us insight into this huge day for monetary policy. scarlet: going on right now in washington, being grilled by lawmakers from the house committee on government reform. mylan being criticized for the profit they make after they repeatedly raised prices on the epipen allergy shot.

markets correspondent recording on the insider trading case. thatet: the demographic has historically supported republicans is switching gears. in a two-way contest, hillary clinton beats donald trump 46% to 42%, among voters with $100,000 or more. let's bring in the chief global political analysts at citigroup. when you look at the polls overall, they have tightened, which you noted is typical for this stage of the cycle. yet, you reduced the odds of a clinton victory from 65%, to 60%. reporter: i'm still nervous about that, but it is the part of the curve when political analysts are freaking out about the data. national polls have tightened. it is clear after labor day, the clinton bounce has worn off. the developments in the clinton campaign did not help. on the flipside, donald trump's numbers have not improved. i would be careful about making
4:36 pm
the assumption that the betting market seems to have done, that trump has the momentum here. unusually, a lot will ride on the first debate next monday night, because americans don't intend to start looking closely are actions unless you wonky type, until after labor day. joe: a lot of the divides we are seeing in u.s. politics this year, they are not that new. everyone purchased on working-class -- everyone focused on working-class whites. but people who make a lot of money this year are actually voting for there a public in less than they have in the past. is this the future of politics in the u.s. and europe? essentially, this very stark divide between cosmopolitans doing very well in this economy, who like things like that diversity and immigration and trade, and people who don't like cultural change, and don't want
4:37 pm
to see people from other races in their towns. winners and losers from globalization, right? >> more or less, right. i agree with that characterization. it ends up becoming a question of numbers. one of the things we have to take away from this, is the spike in advanced economy political risk between the uk referendum and the rise of trump, even if he doesn't win, is that election outcomes in democracies feel a lot less likely to be mainstream, politically neutral outcomes, than at maybe a knee other time in our lifetime. markets no longer count on the result that is neutral. when you see landslide victories in history, like do thereagan in 1984, polls forecast that ahead of the election, or is this something that surprises even the wonky types on election night?
4:38 pm
>> what we have seen his margins narrowing over the last couple of decades. [no audio] -- with obama at a slightly but a statistical tie, but people said it was too close to call. in the end, obama came in with 52%. we are not going back to a time of landslide victories. i think the polarization is a feature of the landscape. income is part of it. education is part of it, but also, what i quote from the barometer about the case of team -- change. that is not limited to the have-nots. even what they call opinion leaders and professionals, feel it is a pace of change that is too rapid. they're talking about, maybe it is time for a pause. joe: is this why we see the collapse of centrist parties, even let in countries like germany, where the economy is
4:39 pm
thriving, or austria, where unemployment is like 3%. you can't really cite an economic factor on losing out on globalization, yet we are seeing the collapse of the center. matt: globalization or immigration? >> immigration is a lightning rod, no question about it. the answer to what you said, the advanced economy, collections are won and lost on fringe issues, culture issues, whatever it might be. the other point, how much society has changed. iner the great depression 1929, there were no social safety nets for people, then they need to establish workers rights and all kinds of other programs. unemployment, medicare, medicaid, etc., has helped narrow the divide. we are not talking about left and right anymore. those are meaningless. economic nationalism is something that we see, whether
4:40 pm
platform,mp policy marine le pen, or conservatives and the uk, talking about bailing out industries. scarlet: we may not be talking about left versus right anymore, but we still have two major parties in most countries, with the addition -- exception of third-party candidates. how do you folding candidates stein?ry johnson or jill do they hurt clinton more or trump more? a little bit early to say, but i think that they hurt term.n more in the short what it adds to is the great difficulty in forecasting. if you think back again to the the couple of elections, stats guys were the heroes, but nate silver said in this election that donald trump would never be the nominee. that is why i think a lot about the cultural, social, and economic factors. public health, for example. joe: i'm curious how much you think the internet is a factor.
4:41 pm
gatekeepers.more everyone can live in their own filter bubbles. how much has not caused a splintering of political views and hardening of political views? >> i think it is not causal, but it accelerates. we know the more facebook friends you have, the less happy you are. also, we know that in a time when just about everyone is , and print bloomberg media, you can look at that to show that people get their information from social media and other people, especially people like me. -- theuk, we have country has had enough of experts. scarlet: we have not had enough. thank you. with us. be sticking we will talk about japan's workforce growth and how women will play a huge role in that countries economic prosperity.

she was speaking on the women's panel at the u.n. what is the main message, and what do governments have to do on this front to continue making progress on this huge potential, for the economy? >> getting more women into the economy is a huge driver of the country's growth. we also know that workforce and management structures are good for companies. as a member of this first ever hyatt level panel on u.n. women's economic empowerment, the message is actually simple. removing barriers to entry for women in the labor force, dealing with issues like unpaid care work, and other aspects of then's participation in economy like access to banking is not just the right thing to do, it is the smart thing to do. matt: which cultures are deficient?we talk about the -- japan.

many other ways to come together. joe: how much of these issues come down to laws and regulations, and how much is cultural willingness to accept them? for example, something like paid time off or leave. if people don't take them, because they are still seen as, you shouldn't do that, or it will diminish your career track, then that could set back the law . how much does that set back the law intent? tina: one of the things that was said last night, when ship -- shinzo abe was talking about it, it is not a movement to reduce gender equality, it is a liberation movement for men. i quite liked getting that message across. this should benefit both men and women, in time with their families, and more economic prospects, which eases better outcomes for children and families. there's a real multiplier effect. culture and laws, the chicken first? egg, which comes

the world bank's identified a majority of countries have some number of laws on the books, that either restrict women from maintaining property, owning titles, opening bank accounts, etc. culture is part of that. the g20 member states are getting involved with the w 20, which will require them to agree to targets. it is expensive to maintain these policies. matt: but the payoff is hopefully much bigger than the investment. thank you so much for your time. tina fordham, citigroup chief global political analyst. scarlet: coming up, trump economic advisor weighs in on the wells fargo scandal. this is bloomberg. ♪
