betty: we are counting down to asia upon first major market this morning. trading in sydney underway. markets of just a touch higher despite concerns australia may lose its aaa rating. this is daybreak asia. more on that story in a moment. thene: a quick check on latest business flash -- german prosecutor said to be investigating the chairman of volkswagen over the emissions scandal. the second board member to be investigated over alleged market manipulation. relates to inquiry the time when he was the chief financial officer. ae automaker is facing potential $15 billion settlement in the u.s. over its so-called defeat devices. betty: the agricultural bank of 215a has been hit with a million dollar fine for hiding transactions. the new york banking regulator says deals by newly served

we find out who will be the next president of the united states. clintonl a trump or presidency mean for other countries around the world. my guest joins me now to talk about that. the chart and talk about volatility and the stress we see in the markets. we're talking what the implied correlation which does breach the brexit levels. we see things at a fever pitch. this latest development from the fbi clearing hillary of any charges? does this bring meaningful relief to the market? actually, i don't. i think what we have seen in the strength of the dollar is a bit of a misread in politics. i think this last-minute announcement, the number of people in the u.s. are reviewing it pretty skeptically. what i'm seeing on social media and personal comments is a lot
of a skeptical read of it, so i don't think it is the relief any i don'think, and necessarily think it presents a clear runway for hillary clinton to go into the presidency. we still see polls tightening, suggesting it's not a done deal. we have had some economists speak about a trump presidency. could it take us back to the days of the great depression or are these concerns over done? guest: i think they are way over done. we are expected to have between now and january 5. a trump presidency, because of the uncertainty, would create a higher amplitude and that volatility, but over the medium-term, that would subside a bit. would happen is when he announces his cabinet and his
department heads, i think there around how clarity people can position portfolios and how businesses can position themselves. there are a number of impact on asia. the china relationship becomes a different. you saw the philippines and malaysia government swings over the past couple of weeks and with a clinton presidency, i think that trend continues because the much lauded and to asia has been really hollow. with trump comes a chance to recalibrate some of those relationships and they may not have the same form and may not i the same expectations, but think a number of asian countries are looking for a recalibration of their relationship with the u.s. and a different political regime brings that opportunity. earlier, you were seeing
some video, to show you how high-stakes this election has been, we were showing you video from a rally in reno what he was rushed off the stage when it seemed like someone was coming to rush him at the podium and someone allegedly shouted gun in the audience. i want to explain that video to our viewers who had not been up dated on that. but you mention the recalibration, so let's get more specific stop what are you speaking of when you say a recalibration if we were to see a president trump? present amay requirement for japan to amend its constitution and provide more defense and military activity. tomay require china reevaluate its position in different parts of the region. china, you say is prepared for clinton, not trump? yes.:
and they are prepared to continue in the same manner which they have with the philippines, and malaysia and gradually taking over those traditional u.s. allies. same team clinton had when she was secretary of state would take over, largely the same team, with the asia policy, so there would be zero change from the status quo in asia and i think many asians role of the u.s. and asia and they need to see a redefinition. look where korea is. remittanceskorea's to china are in the chinese currency and they are very deeply entrenched into china's supply chain. aes korea want to come to point where it has to choose between the economics in china and politics in the u.s.?
if we continue down the current path, korea have to -- korea may have to make that choice. quo is what the status political and economic relationships in asia mean and quite frankly, i don't think it's a good status quo for the u.s. and asia. asians are more educated, they are wealthier, and they have much more autonomy that may have had in the past stop the old u.s. model and view of asia really has to change. thank you so much for joining us. we will be talking much more about this in the next 48 hours. downgrade down under. why blackrock says australia could use it -- could lose its aaa rating as early as next month. we will go live to sydney for why that is. this is bloomberg. ♪

the markets were looking for an excuse to take some profit. that was the reason used. it will be volatile until we know who the president is. >> you are saying we could be returning back to a post-november eighth. something hillary clinton could be risky for assets. how easy it playing out in the region? >> if clinton gets in, markets will rally because of the relief , and also probably rally further because they sold off. if donald trump gets income there will be a selloff. i think it will hit the region relatively well. you have seen that recently. i expect the region, particular china, will hold up better than global markets. >> why is that? because it is less exposed to
what's happening in the presidential election. why we are taking profits -- >> you're talking about tpp, trained -- >> you're talking about longer-term factors, which is not in the stock market. the stock market has not gone up because of tpp. ultimately, these things are not factored into earnings and growth and monetary policy. they are long-term theoretical economic plans, and the stock markets are much more short-term. why we are taking profits in china, the banks, and properties is because it has had a good run. we have talked about the discount between the a share and the h share. in the bigger stocks, was about 30% to 40%.
that discount of a month ago had been narrowed to 50%, but the banks, property companies, which has been helped by money flowing into china, there was no discount. some stocks were at a premium, so it was natural to take profits. given that, you rightly point out that a lot of this will be more about the long-term and the markets will be reacting aret-term, but in the end we breathlessly talking about reactions in the markets when maybe six months from now, there will not be that much of a change? not sure that is the case. going into this event, we have had a good run since the brexit worries. markets have done well, bond yields have come down,
currencies have been stable, and commodities have been stable, and equities have had a good run. there is not much juice left in either bonds or equities. things selloff, and that would change our investment philosophy. ultimately we have to see who gets in. what will change is that we are in a low growth environment and rates will go up in the u.s. at some point, but the world economies are not strong enough not to need central bank or physical health, so the search for yield will still be there. i think that is the most important point from an investment point of view. >> thank you for joining us. gaming out what happens in the markets after tuesday. black rock gives a gloomy warning on australia's credit
