savings by the finished network manufacturer to kick in earlier, the forecast signal that the cost savings t ctive is seeking with the purchase of out until lucent may not be boosting earnings as quickly as investors have expected which is why shares are down by almost 4% today. the big piece of macro data in the u.k. today was inflation, cpi and ppi. inflation on the fact that unexpectedly slowed in october, cpi driven down by the price of clothing and university tuition fees. the blue line line is inflation slowing 2.9% versus 1% the previous month. motor fuel prices which jumped 2.2% in october, there is little signs that the account is speeding through the week pound. the pressure on companies to raise prices is building, in put , thes surged by 4.6%

a come up 8% in that time, domestically the smallest domestically oriented companies have done the best followed by the large old economy companies and the s&p and the nasdaq trailing that. banks today and how they are diverging with the five-day performance, they are trading lower today which is a pullback from what may have been doing over the past few days. guggenheim downgrading bank of america and wells fargo, wells fargo going to a cell, the call based largely on dilation, wells fargo is the worst performance of these banks. the five-day chart, it looks quite different with all of the backs higher, citigroup fairy the least best of these. bank of america the best up 17% in that time. that leads you to a violation called by guggenheim on the heels of this outperformance we have seen by the banks.
the outperformance among the banks has to do in part with what we have been seeing in the bond market with yields rising, the 10 year yield has had this monster move, sideways on friday because bond markets were closed for veterans day. the 37 basis point move over the five-day session. today, a positive net upward momentum in yield. that explains part of the reason why we see banks pullback in the session. vonnie: thank you. let's check in on the first word news, taylor riggs has more from our newsroom here >> president obama says austerity moves cannot revive the greek economy by themselves, he is in athens where he met with the greek prime minister, they discuss spending cuts and tax hikes which is been imposed in return for billions in financial aid. president obama: posterity alone cannot deliver prosperity. -- austerity alone cannot deliver prosperity, it important with regard to debt relief and
other accommodative strategies to help the greek people in this adjustment. >> president obama has urged that greece get some sort of relief on its debt which accounts for more than 170% of its economic output. police and germany have rated more than 200 offices and apartment of an desolate to a radical islamist group. the german interior ministry says the group radicalized young people and recorded it to go to syria to take part in the civil war. donald trump's transition team recommended former goldman sachs partner be named treasury secretary according to people familiar with the matter. mnuchin said he is working to get the biggest tax changes since ronald reagan. aaa predicts this will be the biggest thanksgiving holiday for
travel in nine years, they say 49 million americans will travel at least 50 miles from home over the weekend, more than 2% over 2007,year, the most since the year before the global crisis begin. global news 24 hours a day powered by more than 2600 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. this is bloomberg. our next guest says there is more upside to come in bond yields after the president-elect's victory. you have $36 million under management, persuade me that this massive moves and bond yields is not a big overreaction? >> i believe bond yields have more upside, if you look at what is happening in terms of the market, obviously reading from -- donald trump's plan as
positive, hard not to think this is deflationary for the global economy. he is engaging in huge tax reform which the republicans want to do. he has the mandate to do a huge infrastructure spend. he is looking to the big supply-side reforms, the -- this massive stimulus occurring at a time when the u.s. output gap is closing. you have the federal reserve about two hike and now this huge stimulus come on board, suddenly the rate projections do not look correct. points, three 25 point basis hikes. given the developments on the political side, we believe there should be more high prices in the bond yields. mark: how much higher the -- is there a ceiling given higher bond yields tightening finance or conditions, it is
self-defeating eventually come isn't it? where is the ceiling when it comes to yields? a250 -- >> 250 on 10 years is reasonable target. part of the reason they will go up is not because the economy will be able to sustain them, we examined where we came from, we had this very low growth, low easy central-bank environment for a long time and investors have been buying expecting it to never selloff, buying yields down the yield curve and down the credit spectrum. now this big change in markets, moved from pure monetary policy focus to something which is fiscal stimulus focused and protectionism focus which is inflationary. the market is not used to coping with these big changes. liquidity cannot have -- can have a very caps on servicing investors when those occur. selloff toe bond potentially get out of control before it comes back under control as bond yields pressure
to 50 on 10 year treasuries. vonnie: what is leading what, is the dollar leading bonds or vice versa and what happens if we get a wall street treasury secretary as is being rumored? now, the bond market is in control. i also believe that it is for the dollar, if you think about what can happen in the u.s., we will get these rate hikes and date inflation expectations, which will push yields up and it will be supportive for the u.s. dollar as well. if you think about the dollar versus the rest of the world, this is in terms of trade boost for the u.s. they probably will not lose out on exports but they were probably gain on better terms on ,he trade deals that trump gets that is imports which is positive for the u.s. dollar. if you look at the administration so far, this is
also a big argument for not getting too worried about the protectionist policies. all of trump is surrounding himself with deal makers, he says he is a deal maker, surrounding himself with billionaires and businessmen who have done very well, not good business to slap tariffs on key trading partners, i do not believe his campaign threats to put harris on chinese goods -- tariffs on chinese goods will come to fruition. the u.s. will have a strong hand in negotiations to control such a large consumer market, they will be able to get -- benefit themselves. has beenistration chosen with a similar mindset to back this type of deal making donald trump will do. vonnie: town of mine is tax overhaul, steven mnuchin telling reporters they want to make sure they get the biggest tax bill passed before he is even been asked to be treasury secretary.
what would be the difference between a tax reform and fiscal spending? >> this is one reason the markets are pausing. hard to know what he does get. i believe if you look at the things that were already part of the republican agenda like tax gulation, thesere things he can achieve. the things he will find more difficult are the ones that increase the deficit. this will be the fiscal spending plan he has put forward. he has worked with the investor wilbur ross to suggest $1 trillion over 10 years spending program, a public-private partnership which will pay for itself. it is a question whether those numbers actually do add up. if he can convince the did in the increase
will not be too large he can get the fiscal spending through. fiscal spending was a desire for the party prior to the election. increasing his chances of getting be spending through. mark: given you have said we will have a for the backup in yields, what are your preferred picks? preferred >> the french bonds, the politics within france itself, because we have seen this shock outcome from brexit and the surprise outcome in the donald trump bigotry, if we look at france, marine le pen looking like she will certainly be in a second round of runoff within france. her challenger, if in the best case scenario, will be an establishment politician. he is the mayor of bordeaux and was the prime minister of france a long time ago.

is going on in terms of u.s. and uk's bond market. however, a constraining influence on that is the fact that for at least the next couple of years, we see back rates staying at very low levels. any further correction we see in u.k. gilt markets is something we see to be pretty gradual and limited in line with our dovish view of bank of england policy for the next couple of years. vonnie: won't that keep act -- inflation expectations anchored? >> we think so for the time being, for the last year or couple of years, markets and the pricing in a pretty material risk of deflation at a global level including in the u.k. and as a result you can see from break even rates that inflation expectations were depressed and what we have seen recently is an unwinding of that. i do not think yet in any way inflation expectations have the
anchored to the upside. liftinge rising tide boats which has been out there since the donald trump victory come across the world, reflation , is it important to separate the u.s. from the rest, especially the major economies, u.k., ecb, japan? >> to an extent, i wonder why the markets got ahead of themselves. thaticism to the extent the rise in bond yields relates to expectations of a large fiscal boost from a trump presidency. i wonder if that does work to come in, what kind of broader positive effects that would have in terms of reflecting the global economy. to the extent you think those transmission channels will be muted and there is still downside risk to the global economy, particularly if you worry about protectionism that donald trump has been talking about. i wonder whether that rising tide will lift.
