2:35 am
successor yesterday at the white house. the meeting came just days after obama warned donald trump -- warned voters that donald trump was dangerously erratic. donald trump tweeted his appraisal of the meeting. d.c. -- a fantastic day in met with president obama for the first time. great chemistry. meanwhile, in europe, details about what a donald trump presidency will look like continues to worry leaders and policymakers across the globe. we hear from bundesbank's president. not only the sentiment and current behind the brexit boat but more recently the results of the presidential election raised the question of how much reductionism and isolationism will determine the future political agenda. caroline: let us get the take from europe on president donald
2:36 am
trump. we are joined on the phone by the eu trade minister. thank you for joining us. how worried are you about the unraveling of trade deals between europe and the u.s. since donald trump's of election? is absolutely essential that the eu has good relations with the u.s., whom ever is the president. the message has to be continued. but i am worried that the new sosident is speaking negatively about free trade. that could be a problem. dead?s ttic >> i do not think it will be dead but there will be ongoing negotiations for years to come. we have to say that it is put on hold. us some: minister, give
2:37 am
information about ttp and nafta. are these deals going to be unwound? see because donald trump has said in the election that he would not go forward with the ratification of tpp and he will try to get a new deal from nafta. he has not spoken to much of ttic but he has been more or less anti-trade in his rhetoric. these will be hard years for trade. i think this will be negative also for the u.s. because i think the u.s. is benefiting from trade. take for example sweden where we have 130,000 jobs in sweden which are actually depending on the exports to the united states but in the u.s., 300,000 jobs
2:38 am
are because of the exports from sweden. guy: a relationship. and you think about what happens next, was the brexit vote against globalization, was the vote for donald trump a vote for globalization? becauseme extent it was so many people feel frustration of globalization, of the widening gaps between people, of and it isf any income not possible to say well, we are going to do something against globalization. what you can do is to stop trade agreements. so it feels like you are doing something if you say no to trade. i think you need structural changes in the countries to be going forward. jobs.nnot save old you have to go forward and -- whate but what has
2:39 am
is not happening so far in the u.s. is they have not taken care of the losers of globalization and free trade. they have to take themselves individually. you have to have a system where you have reeducation, a welfare system so that it is good for many and not paid for by the few. caroline: it is arguable that does just -- that not just the u.s. is guilty of that. can the eu work together, can europe work together to see positive impact on their economies post-brexit and the u.s. -- which is the biggest risk to the eu growth? brexit or donald trump coming to the presidency? the influencet is of both brexit and donald trump. they could both be influential when it comes to the economic
2:40 am
forecast but at the same time, we have to find ways to work. the united states and the eu are the world's biggest trading areas. we have to find a reasonable way to work even if many of the values are not the same. and it has been easier to work with president obama but to find a way to work with donald trump is essential. my government will try to do that. when it comes to brexit, donald yesterday that he wants a special relationship with the u.k. but the fact is, as long as the u.k. is a member of the eu, they cannot have ,rade deals individually bilaterally with other countries. it has to wait until they have actually left the eu. that could be several years. guy: do you seriously think the u.k. will not be negotiating a u.s. until it
2:41 am
leaves the eu? it would be surprising if this relationship did not produce a trade arrangement. that would make brexit a more difficult situation for continental europe. >> the member countries have delegated to the eu. tore is no possibility negotiate a trade deal. of course, you cannot say anything about discussions going on but formal negotiation cannot happen. that would be against the eu relations. -- eu regulations. caroline: thank you very much indeed for your time. coming up on the show, donald trump's wall street policies -- is it the end of dodd-frank? we will discuss his pledge to dismantle the reform. we will be talking trade again. welill ttic be put at risk?

trump asking dimon to serve as treasury secretary. blankfein says he would be a great treasury sector -- treasury secretary. that is your bloomberg business flash. guy: thank you. let us pick up on that last story. sweeping pay limits on wall street. trying to do so by january. we know what happens in january. the government agencies are making last-minute adjustments to the measure to complete it within the next two months. the rule by the finance industry is that it is the last major unfinished piece of the dodd-frank act. we await further updates from the donald trump transition site.
2:47 am
find outiting also to who will be the next treasury secretary. the wall street journal is talking about a republican from texas. he is the chairman of the house financial services committee. he is not a great fan of dodd-frank. is dodd-frank dead, what would replace it? good morning. the banks have had quite a week on the idea that maybe we are going to see the regulatory burden lifted, rolled back, and we have a steeper yield curve. how much further to the banks have to run? >> it depends on how much further we think the yield curve will move. looking at there valuation rally in the european banks, you are some sort of relief rally. they were trading at lowe's. it is important to distinguish between those that have u.s. abroad -- u.s. operations and those that are not affected by

the dodd-frank. the is a big positive for european banks and banks like barclays that have business in america. wilbanksggregate, benefit generally -- will banks benefit generally? it feels like basel cannot go any further. the regulatory run which we have seen since 2008 has hit a high water mark. >> i would broadly agree with that. to be a bank investor at this point, you have reached peak regulation on both side of the the -- on both sides of pond. if you look at places like italy where they are attempting consolidation, that should be a positive for the market as well. caroline: let us draw our attention to what is happening in the u.s. treasuries. a phenomenal spike.
2:49 am
this steepening of the yield curve has been so quick and explicit -- is that what is driving the banks? >> i think you have a number of buyers on the sidelines waiting to see what was going to happen in the elections and what might happen going forward. you have a clearing -- clearer path now on the easing of regulations. i think this will only help the move in the treasuries. the steepness of the curve is a critical point, in particular the 10-to. -- 10-2/ . i think that is very important for banks in the future. they are still trading at all-time low valuations. caroline: sub one. barclays potentially would benefit. thanks with the u.s. operations.
2:50 am
-- banks with u.s. operations. >> the u.s. banks are a few years ahead. you have more confidence in the capital basis of those banks. they have comparable ratios but the assets within the u.s. banking system are of a high quality and that is not that ambiguous compared to the european peers. there is still a need to write down assets across the books. you will not see that coming through in cash. guy: we still want to understand what those assets will mean in terms of unwinding them. stay with us. great start to the conversation. we are minutes away from the european open. we will take a look at the movers in trade today. sincehas its best quarter 2013. those stories and more our next.

2:55 am
they are already yielding negative interest rates. you cannot go a lot further. think we are certainly near to the situation where there is little value in bonds. it is very hard to see the value in the sort of government bond funds in particular. caroline: in terms of use setting up new fund laterals. what our clients feeling? -- what are clients feeling? >> they are cautiously trying to i too much. they are much less cautious on bonds. asset allocation models are broken by the quantitative easing we have had for the last five years. clients do want participation in equity markets. but they want something to hedge

the european open. let us show you what is happening. eight seconds to go. let us show you what is happening. we are not expecting fireworks. but this is what we are looking at this morning. -- i suspect ours are a little bit jaded. london market just dropping a touch at the moment. xd 8.27. -- 6827. looks like we are seeing a more cautious to the start of the day. we are just flirting with a flat line. caroline: i am focusing on how the sectors breakdown this friday morning open. we have seen such a run in metals. and a bull run in china. let us look at the miners. financials currently doing the trade, up 0.2%.

energy up 0.25%. equitiesmoving into cautiously. up 0.3% on the stoxx 600. the yield curve goes steeper. checking in on the gilt yields. picking up --elds clearly, yields picking up a little bit. keep an eye on u.k. gilt. i want to show you the disparity we are starting to see in the u.s. versus europe because u.s. treasuries is where the real run to of the selloff has been. inflation is on the agenda. we see this curve -- a space happening between german and u.s. yields.
3:02 am
yields have. climbed over the course of the week and we are starting to see that disparity grow. is money going to be flowing out of the u.s. more so than in germany? .lipping over to metals what a ramp-up for copper. relative strength index showing we are the most overboard on copper since 1986. usually, the technical signal -- it is time to get out if it comes below the red line. copper is seeing a 16% rally this week. let us look at one of the stocks that has been outperforming on the back of this. look at it outperform. what a ramp-up.

3:04 am
volcker. and then into the greenspan era as well. we see this declining care of lines. are we about here starting to break that trend? and what is the meaning of this for the investment community and for the corporate sector? donald trump's transition team launched a website outlining the president-elect's plans regarding health care, immigration, the financial sector and the energy sector. and what the regulations for those sectors will mean. how does big business feel about what is happening, trumpflation, and the regulatory story? here is what the ceos have to say. >> he will be pretty pragmatic. he is a businessman with a lot of experience in property development. he has run big projects. i think he will surprise on the upside and i think he will be a

good president. >> there is a big opportunity here when the government and the president wants to rebuild the infrastructure. >> the policy of tax reduction and getting rid of dodd-frank and replacing it with something else. fiscala of getting discipline. those are positive. there is a lot to be hopeful about. >> the media played a positive role in this campaign in the sense that it was ever present which media is today. did the media get it right in terms of predicting the outcome? deserves some scrutiny about the media and how they got it wrong. >> maybe it will not be in the u.s. context quite as bad as some people think in the medium term. in the short-term, the immediate impact, many companies will be faced with making some decisions. >> donald trump is pro-business and pro-america and he wants to
3:06 am
see companies grow and do well. and create jobs. caroline: that infrastructure is helping. allianz really surging this morning, trading up more than 3.8%. the reason is that they beat their profitability. this is the biggest move since -- seen it since june 20. market capitalization is up. a big deal. emco getting some inflows after three years. guy: i wonder what the next quarter will look like in terms of what will happen with the bond market going forward. we have sown you some charts about the long-term stories of bond markets. let us talk about inflation and what trumpflation could ultimately mean for the investment community. freddy is still with us on set in london. people are talking about a big
3:07 am
push in terms of infrastructure spending but the u.s. jobs market is already pretty tight. what does that mean for investments? policys an inflationary and you are just about to have a push through from commodity price inflation. wage inflation is coming through in america already which is broadly positive at a low level and in particular to solve the issue of a disgruntled working class in america. you have to be careful that it does not get out of hand. it could lead to the continuation of the fed rate hikes. a december rate hike seems very likely to me and people should be wary about how they are thinking about their asset allocation on the back of inflation. if inflation comes back, bonds are in more trouble than they are already. caroline: we are starting to see yields be more attractive.
3:08 am
what then happens to the stock market amid this inflationary cycle? >> it depends on where you get to. people keep calling for a 4% yield on the 10 year treasury as a normal level because it was like that during the greenspan era. if you look at the 30 year chart, it has been a straight line downwards. to me, 4% seems too high. if the treasury stays around 2.5%, you could still see a lot of attraction in high-yielding equities. i think you have seen a lot of the stables and the utility stocks selling off in europe as well. but ier has been hit hard think that is a temporary setback. it is a twin problem of the emerging market selloff on the donald trump victory. guy: how do we play european industrial? we spoke to siemens yesterday.
3:09 am
european industrials priced in euros --how do they fare in this next phase? >> i am sure he has a lot of kit he is willing to sell to them but looking at the valuation of european industrials, trading at margin, highs on a high you have already placed in all of the good news. and also even from here if donald trump does come out with an infrastructure plan, it would take many years for that number to come through. midtermit is probably bullish for the earnings outlook for the shares you have had all of the good news. -- insurersemens and banks are still leading the charge. freddie will stay with us. up next, we are talking about

than expected. chryslerye on the fiat . 4.8%. donald trump seems to be helping the likes of fiat and gm. allianz up, the leader of the pack. 36% hike in profits. this as we see the belgian rival not offering a enough money they say. rejecting the approach from the belgian rival, not sufficiently compelling. let us get the bloomberg first news word. >> demonstrations against donald trump have a continued -- have continued across the u.s. >> we are all immigrants. hundreds of protesters gathered outside of trump tower
3:15 am
on fifth avenue. they chanted angry slogans. rudy giuliani has called the protesters a bunch of spoiled crybabies. donald trump has told his british counterpart that he wants to rekindle the kind of relationship that margaret and ronald reagan shared in the 1980's and he told prime minister theresa may that the u.k. is a special place. donald trump added that it would be the greatest possible honor to host her in washington as soon as possible. alibaba has broken last year's single day sales record. it wrapped up more than 91 .2 billion yuan in its annual shop at him. it enlisted top celebrities like kobe bryant to promote the spending blitz which dwarfed black friday and cyber monday in the u.s. global news 24 hours a day powered by our 2600 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. this is bloomberg. bankthe federal reserve

president says the election of donald trump should not delay and interest rate increase next month. is voting member of the fmoc trying to assess the impact of the vote. breaks gridlock in washington. which has been a key complaint of how the economy has operated over the last six years when we have had divided government. when you do not have divided government, many are wondering what will happen and markets are taken aback which is natural. guy: we want to take you to what is happening in south africa. the rand is under pressure. appears this may not just be a localized story. i want to take you to my terminal to show you what has been going on with the carry trade over the last few days. the white line is the bloomberg emf carry trade index.
3:17 am
as you can see, the carry trade has been unwinding and unwinding very rapidly on the right-hand side of your screen. appears thislet me assume in se what is happening on the right-hand side. big moves to the downside. freddie is still with us. is the carry trade under real pressure? will the feds have to push rates higher? >> i think that is probably right and i think the currencies are getting hit by a lot of traders who are taking the obvious view that the emerging markets will have a tougher time under a donald trump regime not to mention the underlying weakness to a lot of their economies. this will persist longer and the critical thing is that the government bonds of these countries that have been sawed out as a safe haven for their yields will also be selling off. caroline: looking at some of the selloff happening across the
3:18 am
emerging market fx spectrum. the russian ruble -- russia still seems to be doing rather well. look at the south korean wan. the indonesian currency. if you go across to another key chart, you can see this is an emerging market get out when it comes to exchange traded. look at the amount we are seeing pulled out. the emerging market exposure is not what is wanted. but then you see china entering a bull market. orthat about miners separating china from the rest of the emerging market world? >> i think it is about the commodity rally. and it is being fueled in part by the recent moves of the chinese government to stimulate demand. i don't think it will last. if you look at the long-term correlation -- if you look at
3:19 am
the correlation between the asian currencies and the dollar, it is overvalued. asian do not see currencies reversing the current trend, i would argue that you have a long way to fall in the market. opec has had its largest month of reduction. i think from a supply demand perspective, monetary futures buying versus demand. at one of theok things donald trump might do moneywould be to bring held offshore by u.s. companies and repatriate that. similar to the homeland investment act we saw a post 9/11. i'm interested in the implications of how u.s. equities will perform versus global equities. one of the things that has driven u.s. equities has been by backs. we have seen that clearly and it is related to the credit market. is that plays till going to be
3:20 am
in and could it be exacerbated if we see some of that money rolling back into the u.s.? >> if he does allow companies somegoogle to repatriate of its money. i think you could see either investment with a decent rate of return on the home soil or a return of more cash to shareholders. i think it will be positive for the u.s. market. when he tries to combine it with a lower overall corporate tax rate, don't forget that the u.s. ratese of the highest tax , corporate tax rates in the world, that -- bringing that back down will increase profitability. caroline: we have managed to you thinkof you -- that metals and commodities could see a 25% slump going forward. if you look at the u.s.
3:21 am
potential he picking up, which sectors should we be looking at? >> other than the u.s. banks where i think you should be bullish, i think the u.s. consumer. one of the big threats to the world could be inflation, so you will see a better earning consumer. you have tightness in the labor market. i think wage inflation will increase. the multiples of spending will come through quickly. the consumer stocks tend to sell off when rates go up. the consumer stocks though have held up much better than a lot of the other rate sensitive stocks. believe that big tech like google has a place in someone's profile. the indiscriminate selloff seems to be second-guessing the market.
3:22 am
i think there could be some value in the big tech. guy: putting up this chart to reinforce that point. the selloff that has come through. left out ofe being the recent rally. so great to see you this morning, friday. thank you. up next, eu trade ministers are set to discuss how to handle a donald trump white house. we go to brussels next. this is bloomberg. ♪

future political agenda. caroline: from brexit to a donald trump victory. how are these events being traded? and where is the money going? wonderful to have you on the show. there is anyse if trend. has there been a change in the appetite for risk? >> we are seeing more and more people switching positions to short. people are expecting the markets to go down. people were super surprised in the last 48 hours -- we are seeing volumes the same as what we saw after the brexit.
