that creates incentive for japanese investors to send money to the u.s. for higher-yielding assets. that brightens the prospect for japanese export earnings, and it also puts easing pressure on inflation. the downward spiral and prices have seen over the last few months think of easing, and that will create more of a polish environment for japanese companies -- bullish environment for companies at home. betty: it is funny to see that most analysts were concerned the trump victory would hurt equities and make the yen stronger. how likely will this be sustained? guy: it really is -- ryan: it really is quite surprising. this is the fifth best of about 100 we have tracked since november 9, definitely not had -- if anything, the opposite effect of what we expected.

barrels a day, but there are disagreements with both camps. let's look at opec member nations and hop into the bloomberg, a cool chart you will want to see. you can see on the left side of the screen, iran, 3.6 8 million a day. of oil iran says it should not have to cut because it is recovering from sanctions. is the opec side of things. the non-opec side, that has to deal with russia. of 11 point 2 million barrels a day, near its post-soviet record high. opec, butt part of relative to saudi arabia, pumping 10 million barrels a day, the u.s. pumping 8.7 million barrels a day, you cannot discount what is happening with russia. no surprise that energy
ministers are traveling to moscow to convince them to cut something, but so far, russia continues to say it will not cut, but could freeze production at its current level. opec member countries are not happy about that. >> because of that this agreement, we are seeing oil prices hit, but what happens to prices if opec manages to pull a rabbit out of its hat? that, we couldo see oil prices rise. according to the iea, they think it could rise on something like $50 to 60 girls -- $60 a barrel. i want to show you what is happening in terms of opec oil production as well as the oil price. the white line is total opec production, near a record, 34 million barrels a day on the top right of your screen. the oil price has been falling.

in balance during the first quarter of next year. on that basis, we are looking for a higher oil price. there is no doubt that the price given u.s. shale producers, so we are watching closely. onrall, we remain positive fundamentals, and the icing on the cake would be a production cut or cap. ishow much of a threat higher oil prices for opec and that there are surviving upstart companies out there that made try to squeeze out of the market by lowering prices? >> we have seen right through this year, high-cost producers taken off the grid in terms of production. that is where of the supply side has started to improve. it's more around what the long-term prospect is.
we are clearly not talking about $100 a barrel, more likely likely to see oil prices around that $55 level through 2017 and into 2018. those with a cost basis at reasonable levels can make money below $55 a barrel. you might see some peripheral production coming on stream. notes, soking at the you say by hong kong shares, buy china, why? >> we are certainly positive on china, some momentum gaining on the reflation story. we need to see more detail out of the trump administration and of tax cuts,e infrastructure spend, will start to see and be implemented. china will get some advantage

inflationary expectations are going forward in 2017. we think it will be a measured approach by the federal reserve them up forecasting two additional rate rises next year, but there could be a third if inflationary expectations start to pick up from here. >> thank you so much. good to talk with you. division director at macquarie wealth management on the markets. much more ahead, the black friday weekend reveals a lot about holiday shopping. we look at the affect on cyber monday. we are getting initial numbers on how big that can be. that is next. this is bloomberg. ♪
