7:04 pm
days in which we have a little bit of weakness. that was not the case today. they are down. very clear result. the other thing we thought that he is the breakdown in the stocks, and bond correlation. that his been a pretty tight correlation -- that has been a pretty tight correlation recently. stocks sold off, and bonds did pretty well. 10 year is down. you saw what seemed to be the risk off mentality that we usually see manifested with bonds and stocks. recently, they have been doing the same thing together. you cannot look past the financial shares. that was a big part of it. anchor: what is happening with them? you look at what happened before we opened up markets this morning, europe was very weak on the back of deutsche bank hitting new record lows, just going lower on share prices. that is the incredible. one thing we know about investors, they do not like to see financial companies in the
7:05 pm
crosshairs. is the thought that has done a very poorly. this is the record low year-to-date down 50%, and people question what it is going to do to keep up with the fines it has been imposed upon. finding out whether or not there has been systemic risk, which the imf has labeled deutsche bank. wells fargo stuff is still overhanging, so bank of america, wells fargo, deutsche bank, hurting quite a bit today. how do u.s. investors feel about the election? we are hearing more from wall street. alice say we need to -- analyst say we need to start pricing in this financial risk. the easiest case one can make is the market, in the u.s., has not given a clear distinction. oliver: i have got a chart showing, it basically looks at
7:06 pm
the s&p 500. there is a spread between the possibility of hillary clinton becoming president based on politics polls. when this blue line of lower, that indicates trump poll numbers are getting closer to ms. clinton's. what we see on the correlation on the bottom, it goes green, it goes red, it goes green. they have not signaled who they want to be president. perhaps tonight, we will finally get some clarification on that. much.: thank you so as we have been talking about the story that will dominic the news today -- dominate the news today, the debate between hillary clinton and donald trump. a face-off in two hours time, with a bloomberg poll putting neck.eck and good to see. we talk about how tired, how dead heat these two candidates are.
7:07 pm
tell us what has fueled trump's recent return in the polls? >> the room is really filling up tonight. the polls have tightened, not only on a national basis, but on a statewide basis in some of like crucial swing states colorado, which may emerge as a key state in this race. what we are seeing is that particularly among younger voters and more worrisome for young women, margins for donald trump have you eroded since june. this is a big factor. these are people he needs to win over. women traditionally make a decision a little bit later, leaning neither one way or the other. they are not convinced. both candidates have such high unfavorables. we are standing next to several campaign staffers for hillary clinton's campaign, saying she is going to have a great night, she is ready. that is what we are going to be watching to see. who is going to win tonight on the biggest stage yet the 2016
7:08 pm
campaign? debate that is a going to be a test of trustworthiness, credibility, likability. what is the message we are expecting out of the candidates? megan: we're not really sure tonight what donald trump is going to show up, the bombastic one,? ? is it going to be the more measured, somber, serious donald trump was ready to make his message to people that he does have what it takes, the qualifications, and most importantly, the temperament to be president? can hillary clinton make that positive message she has yet to make? can she see people really get behind what she is bringing to the country, not just what donald trump is not, but what she is? anchor: how is each candidate going to win over the undecided vote? that is what really counts right now. megan: it is hard to believe
7:09 pm
there's anyone out there who is undecided with two candidates who really polarized the electorate. they are out there in fact. what they are going to be looking for is two issues, one on the economy, and second, on terrorism. those who come late to donald trump's campaign say they like his message on job creation and growth. they are troubled by some of his rhetoric onreadon the economy , things like the wall. they will be looking at what type of message he gives today. hillary clinton has got to give trustworthiness, that authenticity with voters that she has failed to connect with. that is going to be her biggest challenge tonight. murphy fromn hofstra university, were the first debate of the presidential campaign will be taking place. we are going to have special coverage on the debate, live on bloomberg television starting at 8 a.m. hong kong time, and 8:30 p.m. here in new york. we are going to have special coverage on thewe are going to t live on twitter.

7:51 pm
surprising, given that since august of last year, we have had a sharp move in terms of people moving from perpetually appreciating expectations for the renminbi to more of a depreciation expectation against the u.s. dollar is not necessarily all of their currencies. i think from that perspective, you do see a rise in terms of deposits on shore in china and a decline of renminbi deposits offshore. i think that is to be expected, but policymakers are working very hard to stabilize expectation and demonstrate volatilitye two-way in the renminbi. betty: that of course is happening in just a few days. helen, thank you so much. helen is among the big-name guests who will be visiting the bloomberg markets most
