5:05 am
tom: let's go to the bloomberg here. they dissented for different reasons. here is the optimism chart for america. these are claims employments -- employment adjusted, the nirvana before that big recession. there is the nirvana over on the right before the financial crisis. we are doing better than nirvana. we are nirvana squared. awfully good. let's go, let's raise rates. interestingly for different reasons yesterday, i cannot convey enough how interesting yellen's struggle was. francine: you look at the boj and governor kuroda scuttling -- governor kuroda struggling. we are at 108. a rowthe fifth time in that the boj announced something in the day after yen is stronger.
5:06 am
tom: what is the blue up top? francine: the one we are watching his 100. the problem is yesterday, we were talking about the tweaks and the markets are interpreting for hours afterwards that the --aks means that he is whatever he has done, the markets feel like yeah, you cannot do it. tom: the trend is your yen. francine: the yen is your trend. chief for ubs w -- the deputy chief for ubs. didgeridoo -- did through -- did drew yesterday? statement they said
5:07 am
they should've gone and yet they did not and she had to figure out a reason to justify it. it was the first time we saw her having to justify a decision that clearly did not match everything else that was going on. francine: why is she doing this? her: i think she has it in mind that if they make a mistake, they cannot recover. i think she is the missing the thoughts that williams and rosen brand have put out there that there is just that many risk that if you wait too long, we cannot move as quickly that we would need to -- as quickly as we would new to. -- we would need to. pattern thatial dates back to bernanke whereby yellen also decides to air on the side of -- if there is any incremental. tom: the two of you with ubs with economics and equities and derivatives, hopefully can
5:08 am
synthesize the optimistic view of the american economy. what was fascinating yesterday, drew, where this word evidence came up and there would be a three minute space where she would take two different opposing directions on whatever the theme was. it was out of body how she was struggling. is there a theory underneath all of this? or are they -- or are they flying as blind as it appears? drew: one of them was optimal control. you can minimize the loss in the theomy -- this is where williams in rosenberg piece have been so important because they leaned against that idea that we would be up to go faster when we need to. tom: we have optimal control and a choice out in front of us. -- you cannotthat
5:09 am
convince me that negative rates are a normal environment. is it ultimately because the markets are the financial -- the financial markets are distorted? drew: i think she is paying attention to foreign central banks. she is taking the wrong message from foreign central banks. the reason they seem to be in such a bind and unable to get anything done is because everyone is trying to maintain a differential to the u.s., and if the u.s. is too low for too long, what we are doing is pushing everyone else into very awkward positions. we are creating some of the instability on our own. then we are saying the markets are too unstable for us to move. francine: we risk a significant higher dollar if the rest of the world's easing and governor tweak -- governor orroded tweaks --
5:10 am
drew: i think there is no difference between the fed hiking and everyone else using. the only question we end up with is -- and everyone else easing. the only question is wind-up -- everyone else goes negative, it still makes the currency move to this is something where the fed should stop focusing on that and focus on where they think rates should be for the american economy. the dollar will go with it -- the dollar will go where it is. julian: the overriding issue and the challenge in financial markets in 2016 is that the -- if you told -- five drew: that is a dirty word. julian: if you told me the yen was going to depreciate by 20% since the time that negative interest rates were first
5:11 am
unveiled in january, i think almost anyone would say you are wrong. francine: i am not sure what governor kuroda could do to try and weaken yen. this would be a fair question. tom: i think the system we observed yesterday is broken. drew's point as an optimist, we're looking for central-bank leadership. there was that moment in a press conference where she says here is the distinction of our dissent which is tiny. julian, your world, this counts -- discount dramatic system world, what do you observe? are they discounting sanity to prevail in december? julian: it is not a bubble. the markets are going to be pleased when and if the fed hikes in december. when you have a 10 year yield in
5:12 am
and around 150 like we have had for most of the year, the multiples should be higher. there are risks out there. francine: you wonder there is not leadership and politicians, so it is unfair from central banks. tom: we have had such a great series of guests. francine: coming up a little bit -- chair of multi-exit investment. this is bloomberg. ♪

5:17 am
parts of trading are clearing backoff -- to places like amsterdam, frankfurt. francine: what are people saying? this is not an easy process. it is not like you scoop it up and move it. john: it is a big, difficult thing to move. it does seem like the people who are making these decisions, they are expecting it to happen. there are people say it is not an easy thing to move. there is a lot of technology that would have to change it now are contracts -- have to change. there are contracts. people look at it and say if the ecb wants this to change, there this.oot -- a route to do if you are a bank, the top 1% are saying we have to the plan -- we have to prepare for this to happen. tom: why are we surprised?

5:25 am
to get a great show. the shift is going to be more pronounced. it will be more uncertain and the market is not quite reflecting that. tom: if i'm institutional manager, do i use it derivatives to hedge my gains in the market? do you hedge derivatives to get past november? julian: we think you do. the upside is limited through november. the other issue is europe has political uncertainty. francine: no. julian: people have forgotten that. as we have seen over the last 24 hours, you get to these uncertainty times, it gets cleared up. the market moves on. this presidential election -- francine: this presidential election, if you look at europe as a benchmark, take a bet on it?

5:32 am
this is something that is been invading for a long time. in terms of the things in this part of the world, it is one of the biggest companies in denmark. it is a big deal. francine: there was a goldman sachs -- they said this was unlocked value because it enabled maersk to put capital and refocus asset management potential. they are talking about execution. was this really where it was lagging? the transport business was trailing about 10 years ago. bettere performing much than the rest of the industry. they are not making asthma money as they used to, but they are doing better than hydrogen -- then hanjin.
5:33 am
what has been -- it has been sort of like they have been struggling to allocate the whethernt attention to to develop the transport division or the oil business. in the past, the oil business was just tagging along, generating a solid profit because prices were going up. that has a suddenly stopped and forces them to reconsider the whole thing. francine: peter, thank you so much for the update. tom, we have to focus on central bank's again. it has to go back to global trade. we will get policy decisions from south africa later. i was counting a lot of central banks, seven of them came out with reviews today. tom: i think they are as confused as anybody else. -- what we are

done with the janet yellen. francine: janet yellen -- policy tweaking or originality with what is going on in yen. again strengthening today. let's look at the possible fallout. dehn.get more from jan what will the fallout be? is she concerned of a temper tantrum? yellender why janet really doesn't want to hike yet? i think the problem is not the 25 basis points is that much . the fed is raising rates at a speed of 25 basis points a year. this is not really a problem. the problem is the conditions into which these rate hikes potentially take place. we are hiking rates into the economies that have not achieved exit velocity and have low
5:35 am
volatility. financial markets where valuations are are out of line with fundamentals. it is that condition, the effect that party five basis points in itself is not a lot, but it can really affect economy if the markets, given what conditions are like. tom: i want to go back to what mentioned yesterday, the idea of original sin. is it janet yellen so screwed up central bank's credibility that we are at the point that em bonds issued by em governments are going to have the dollar denominated because they cannot work in their own currency? jan: this is a misrepresentation of the facts. it is a view that a quarter of a century out of date. local currency bonds are owned by local pension funds and em's. the original sin argument applied to a time many years ago, decades ago by emerging
5:36 am
markets. did not have institutional investors in their own market. they do now. there is always a buyout last resort. tom: i am going to still that phrase. reflexivity." you are going to see currency readjustment of what markets are doing. jan: we have to watch japan carefully at what japan has done by targeting a low yield is given license. this intro bank has to buy every bond that is issued by the authority. that is a green light to a return to fiscal policy. if you force yields down at a time when you are building up debt and increasing time -- and increasing --
5:37 am
matus, you are looking at international economics as well. for exchange has a new quality to being the litmus paper versus what it was five years ago, the crisis. it is amazing -- precrisis. it is amazing what we can see here. drew: one of the most interesting things is whenever we get asked questions about our thoughts on the fed, it comes back to jan. we have a lot of people who push back and say emerging markets and i take it if the fed hikes and it has a currency impact. my thought is we have to worry about the u.s., first and foremost. deal with the fallout as it comes. francine: jan, on this point, this is one of the main concerns . the conversation has moved on to a lot of people are saying if
5:38 am
defaults need to be had in emerging markets, then let's do it, let's clear it and let's move on. jan: with had the sum of all peers. we had a -- we had the sum of all peers. we had the beginning of the fed hike cycle. throughout that period, the high-yield corporate and em have remained at or below the average of 4%. the high-yield bonds and emerging markets are lower -- an emerging markets are lower. -- in emerging markets are lower. francine: you don't see it as a problem? jan: i don't see it as a problem. if there was a huge problem, we would've seen it over the last four years. what is likely to happen is em currencies are appreciating, and people like to have money investigated and currencies that go up. that means capital is going to move back to em.
5:39 am
that eases financial conditions and eases the probability of default for corporate in the em. us. julian emanuel is with it is not ready for surveillance prime time, julian, that is the nigerian currency. they have a few select problems. let's not bundle the sin. when you see these little moves of massively weaker em currencies, whether it is oil, civil unrest or whatever, there is a comfort to going to yen, going to dollar, going to euro. is that going to be janet yellen's salvation? julian: when you look at equity markets, that is a good reason why multiples have ended has they have. we are on the precipice of the next hike. we think there will be two more next year. the fact is, that is
5:40 am

5:45 am
other than intervention? richard: i think it is difficult for them to arrest the yen strength do intervention. it needs to be something that is collaborative. i think that is not something that is on the cards. it is a problem in many ways for the boj. it is something they have to deal with. tom: thank you so much, richard jones. two worlds of ubs, two different worlds. this idea of what central banks can or cannot do. help me here on the bank of japan. they are working into time continuums. they are moving out the yield curves, they are out to the joy of moving 10 year yields. i get that. they've got his word chronic which i would use mathematically, short-term, medium-term and long-term impact. d.c. any evidence a central bank

5:47 am
needed from the fed and that is what they did not get. not that they were exchanging what each other was going to do, but you would have a good sense of what you thought the other player was going to do. now we are getting into game theory. francine: you think there was also the shanghai with china. would go test would governor kuroda gone in made the decision ? quips yellen's has come to us -- >> yellen's press comes is 10 to be disconnected from the statement in the way the fed tries to maneuver the press conference after the fact. they always seem to get the tone wrong. it would not surprise me if the tone was wrong. tom: i'm trying to get off the chart here for julian for you. tokyo inflation.

there is abenomics in the states. what we saw yesterday was remarkable. abenomics is the green. we need to invent inflation. drew and julian, the politics and the economy of japan working in the short-term space. they are using short-term yield curve effects. they get their inflation pop. then ejected away. it just -- then it just drifted away. it even for it. >> it is the demographic wall. the japanese issue in total. you are going to have a draft after the initial impetus peter the problem here is when you draw lines in the sand the way the bank of japan did in regards to the tenure rate. there comes a time that line is going to be challenged, whether it is the swiss franc a year-and-a-half ago. or putting price cap's on lumber in the 1970's.

6:10 am
they do not want the fed to raise, not just because of what they see in terms of the economy developing, but because they like the free money. they're never really gonna say, rates. you to raise on have never seen anyone the trading floor say raise rates on me. they may be able to position for it, but don't surprise me. >> it's not about the markets. about the real economy. hold that thought. we'll get back to you very shortly. mike, thank you very much. michael mckee. john is coming up next. is bloomberg.

6:38 am
people go to the high wages. wages.the high when the policy squashes everything so the market stables are not there, that's where the of resources takes place and that's adding to the low points of the issue. >> aren't you going to just get of this by increasing rates aggressively? there will be a period of shock. banks will start lending to middle market companies again? first thing you learn is market policy doesn't create growth. it on moves it around. it takes it from the future to buy you time. orst of all world, it takes it from your neighbor. allen touched upon debate in your world. he wants to set up a trend of vector of higher rate. it guy says let's go get done. bill lee, would you explain to our global audience why wouldn't she just say one and done? >> what we need to do is show if wethe markets would be

6:44 am
>> please don't. let's move on to brexit. it's been just three months to leave the voted eu. there are still many, many uestions on what the relationship between the uk and the eu will look like. the commission said the uk must single market or immigration control. by re joined on the phone miliband. ave, great to have you on the phone. what would you say at the moment? morning. think the great convulsion of july, the government is getting its feet under the table. minister. little clarityry from the government ab how brexit is going to play out, means, and how they will manage the tradeoffs that you've rightly highlighted to access market and control
6:45 am
immigration on the other, europian immigration. the third thing is obviously the government is in a strong position relative to the which has got its own trouble. >> what does that mean going forward? brexit playing out, especially with an almost, said, labournd have leader unlikable and undesirable. >> i think the current situation is one that will play much people realize. i was in brussels and berlin it's clear ago and that the europian union are waiting for the british to negotiating position. but it's also clear that there are a lot of open questions europe will negotiate this. a although people talk of two-year window, that is all that has provided for in the lisbon treaty of 2008, that would be finished.
6:46 am
danger for the uk and europe as triggers the uk negotiating process, which people expect next year, there finishing bility of it within the two years. that creates market uncertainty. would create real economic risk for the uk. >> we know the risk, but will we hard exit and what does that mean for the city of london? >> i think that the dynamics the government give the upper hand at the moment to the brexit supporters. and it's also possible that the you're seeingthat also opian politics will push towards a hard brexit. great see much room for compromise on the europian side. see the political pressures rising in france, germany, with elections next year. chances of a brexit have risen over the last four to six
6:47 am
weeks. i will also say prime minister was pragmatic and she's alert to the ry economic dangers that are contained in that. you mention hard brexit which is an interesting concept. if we get sterling adjusted to a weaker sterling, 120 or even to here hsbc is, at a 110 sterling, does that make london trophy asset? is what's really coming down the ike, hard brexit, whatever the politics is, do we come down the on to the idea of london sale? >> i don't think that it's a question of on sale. question of what london will be for and how is it maintain a strong europian base which many of us believe is going to finish off global position. and the dynamics within london i think are obviously not just economic. global, about the
6:48 am
quality of life. and the fears i think were overdone that the position of london would be undermined in a matter of weeks after the referendum. that was never any real danger. the real danger for london is four, six, eight, ten years down the track when a series of micro decisions, hundreds of thousands little decisions can spiral out. that's the great danger. >> right. studzinski is the american london.n what is the action that the prime minister needs to do to get tows a better brexit, a united kingdom for four, years out? >> i think as i said earlier, i think she's going to spend a making period of time sure she understands what the different heads of state in about. think >> what about in domestic united kingdom politics, david miliband's world? >> this is a negotiation that has to take place between london
6:49 am
and 27 other countries. we remember that. to agree, all ve 27 have to agree and ratify this negotiation. this is from that.on view unprecedented. so there's going to be a period i call asimulation politics where her and her team will have to understand what is doable.what's not >> right. >> then there's going to have to e a clear view to develop what i think will remain in all but name on certain elements of high quality movement of certain restriction on immigration. that's going to come at a cost. that's part of the realization countries like norway and denmark have encountered. your id miliband, from time as foreign secretary, few country or friendly leader in the euro zone or e.u. towards the u.k.? > actually, the ultimate
6:50 am
pragmatist -- not a matter of friendly or not friendly. britain's allies in northern europe, sweden, allies, many traditional czechtern europe, poland, republic. many of those supporters are by the brexit decision. they see a loss in the those who position, stand for a more open europe. it's not a that question of friends or lack of friends. huge amount of distress after the british decision. out of fear that it means that europian union is weakened s well as britain being weakened. you will see people with the fter shock of what they've seen. >> david, thank you very much. david miliband this morning here united t and his kingdom. don't forget, all of our to tical coverage moving

the greater good? me, john.ce worries >> how does what you just said about putin and trump have to do with the greater good? > i mean, you could argue if you're a more moderate politician, then you put policies in place that help more people. >> their egos. what k what donald trump, putin and trump are talking about is more cultivation of the in >> right. >> which you've seen in austria, recently germany, the first type of world war ii. the fact that putin is actively funding the emergence of the far in these six countries shows that he not only wants the politics the future of in western europe, but he's also influence politics in north america with his link to donald trump.
