a very warm welcome to "bloomberg daybreak: europe," our flagship morning show from here in london. i am anna edwards. , that is howel-din much was wiped off global bond markets in the month of november, so no doubt about it. global drought was being felt by investors in november and that continues this morning. the biggest increase in yields since 2009. we have the long-term picture. are we really at the end of this 30 year bond bull market? it was it is simple but a powerful story going back to 1985. you can pull it up on your bloomberg. is this the inflection point? how much further does this bond drought had to go? feeds intoon trade this theme.
1:02 am
we saw that go up by nine basis points. the highest close since july this year. anna: you mentioned the reflation theme. let us bring it up the risk radar and show everyone where we are on that oil story. opec confounding the skeptics. $50 perwti above barrel. brent crude at $52.54. a 10 month low, stronger u.s. , inflation expectations, weighing on gold. yousef: knowing what is theening with dollar-yen, appointed percent. goldman sachs putting out a note saying the u.s. dollar is a to increase next year over d10 peers. oil -- look at that, the equity session in the asia-pacific up 0.7%. anna: let us get an update on
1:03 am
the bloomberg news this hour. here is angie lau. factory's official gates have climbed to match a post-2012 high. pmi rose inuring november, beating estimates. angie: at the same time, input prices jumped to the strongest readings since march 2011, signaling that inflationary factors may be influencing the world's second-largest economy. anven mnuchin has lined economic agenda at doubling the growth rate. he said the new administration will boost jobs by making tax reform and overriding priority. >> our first priority will be the tax plan and the tax plan has both the corporate aspects to it, lowering corporate taxes are so we make the u.s. companies the most competitive
1:04 am
in the world, making sure we repatriate trillions of dollars back to the date, and the personal income taxes. we will have the most significant middle income tax-cut since reagan. the dollar has seen its best month against the yen in more than two decades as writing treasury yields add to the greenback's lure. markets are eyeing the process the president-elect donald trump's policies will fuel inflation. but in the chancellor of the chancellorsiting -- of the exchequer is visiting scotland today. philip hammond will stress the need for the country to remain part of the u.k. he will meet nicola sturgeon and hopes to talk with business leaders in edinburgh. this comes a week after the u.k. government committed 800 million pounds to secure scottish infrastructure.
1:05 am
you can find more stories on the bloomberg at top . i am angie lau. this is bloomberg. yousef: thanks, angie. we spoke about how the energy software driving the rally in asia. juliette saly has all of the details. juliette: it certainly is the opec effects. look at the green coming through on your screen in your index.cific we are seeing the us really in energy sector have its biggest search today since october 2008. speech energy closed higher by over 11% and so did santos. origin energy, very well bed. in hong kong, sinopec, cnooc and petrol china doing it credibly well. they are leading the gains in the energy space.
1:06 am
the downside is the airline stocks have taken quite a bit of a hit. higher oil prices really going to impact their margins in an environment where they are tied to cut costs and be more competitive. you are seeing airlines coming under pressure today. it has been a very positive session for asian equity markets. the nikkei closing higher by over 1%. the other story of the day, with its better than expected u.s. private jobs data, the dollar hit that nine-month high, pushing the end lower, so there is a lot of good movement coming through from export stocks and the shanghai market also rebounding from that pretty terrible day yesterday. a very positive day for asian equities. is bonds sold out. these concerns about spiking. the yield up by six basis points to two point 8% and movement on the 10 year japanese note as
1:07 am
well. bonds with this energy players rallying strongly. anna: thank you, juliette saly in hong kong. one of our top stories around the oil price. oil prices have rallied after opec agreed to it production cuts. output by 1.2ail million barrels a day. jumping to its highest in a year it and a half. yousef: oil prices may break above $60 a barrel. 30% probability of the deal happening? annmarie hordern is in vienna. talk us through the comics of this deal and how it will be implement it. -- the mechanics of this deal and how it will be in the bunch implemented. annmarie: this came down to the saudi's kind of getting into
1:08 am
iran. they will be able to increase pumping at 90,000 barrels per day, so they are going close to pre-sanction levels, just more than 3.7 million barrels a day. the saudi's taking a huge cut there. we spoke to the saudi oil minister as he left the secretariat yesterday. take a listen. >> 1.2 from opec and 600,000 from non-opec. we have a total of 1.8. hopefully, we will have a very high level of compliance. that gives a positive outlook for the market. oil industry has seen a high level of demand over the past years and it will continue over the coming years. it is important for the oil industry to have a healthy level of investments to balance supply and demand. that is what drove saudi arabia
1:09 am
to bridge differences inside and outside of opec. annmarie: he left the opec meeting. interestingly, he said it was about compliance. that is were the market is focusing. how is this going to be monitored to make sure each country is following the quotas of the agreed-upon here in the vienna? are there concerns about the stability of any non-opec cooperation in this deal? cap, this deal was contingent upon non-opec members joining a longtime the cartel to cut russia yesterday. cut 300,000.ing to this is quite a u-turn from russia who said they would only be willing to freeze. mexico, you're looking at 500,000 barrels per day already.
1:10 am
the nigerian oil minister was saying -- talked about how important this non-opec agreement was. take a listen. >> it is key. focus will shift to the next meeting in doha on december 9. that is when opec and non-opec members will meet to discuss exactly how they are going to implement this deal. bloombergs annmarie hordern joining us from vienna. bob, great to have you on the program. let us jump into this deal. we heard from the saudi energy minister that it all comes down to compliance. how likely do you think is it that this deal will hold up given how ambitious it is? bob: it agree of skepticism is required. obviously be track record of opec going back over implementing deals and complying
1:11 am
with agreed crowd of -- quotas, track record is poor. i would not be surprised if we start to see some erosion away from this deal. the second factor is but a focus on the american shale industry. if we go back to the beginning of 2016, when west texas intermediate was trading kevin rudd really less than $25 per barrel, the breakeven point then for the average american shale industry was just around $50 per barrel. that breakeven point is continuously improving and if we are having this conversation, perhaps in a years time, one could easily see the breakeven for shale at around $40 per barrel. one has immediately got a cap on the oil price because the shale crease it'sn in
1:12 am
cap easily. i think the chance of is going back to $40 is very low. by the way, i think saudi arabia and russia would be very comfortable with a price between $50 and six dollars. i don't think there are experts $60. i don't think there are expectations that it will be at $70 or $80. anna: shale could be back in the market making more money than they were and as you suggest, the opec members may be happy with this. the u.s. economy could do with a bit of stability in oil prices. bob: absolutely. if we get a situation where oil prices stabilize between, let us say, $50 and $60, for the next two years, cash flows for the opec producers such as saudi arabia -- is you look at their budget deficit, they need that improved cash flow.
1:13 am
the production cut of 400 86,000 barrels from saudi arabia, frankly, is not that significant 6,000 their -- of 48 barrels from saudi arabia, frankly is not that significant. they move back into good profitability. if weprofitability. if we have a price between $50 and $60, although we have seen things like airline stocks being hit today as a fuel consumer, i don't think there will be that negative an impact on the global economy at that price level. yousef: it is affective capitulation on opec members, scrambling to make that deal happen. you mention the u.s. shale producers. it has been a slow and gradual process and we have not really seen that kind of quick rebound. the other question that pops up is are they going to be able to react that quickly to the shift in oil prices? these are long-term investors,
1:14 am
looking way beyond the horizon of one year, two years, in cases. bob: the difference between the shale industry and more conventional drilling and oil production is the shale industry can move reasonably quickly, so i would not be at all surprised if we get oil prices stabilizing between $50 and $60 in the next two to three months. we built see a sharp jump in the recount. here: i have the sharp your 5170 on the bloomberg. lot going on with the dollar has nothing to do with oil at the moment, so we see a bit of a breakdown in the correlation. if you see stability in oil prices, how'd you invest around that and what relation does that have with the dollar? bob: the underperformance of oil companies over the last three years, obviously, that stabilizes and the relative
1:15 am
expense of the oil sector, i think, starts to improve, and you know, investors have been very concerned about dividend cuts by oil-producing companies and the big majors. i think that concern about dividend cuts will go away. coming back to your observation on the dollar, i would argue that the dollar is going to be driven much more by interest rate differentials and growth differentials than perceptions of policy changes in the states rather than the oil price. i would say this correlation in the graph your showing there is going to remain fairly weak. yousef: which other currencies stand to benefit off the stronger oil? bob: i think what it means is that a number of currencies such as the russian ruble, which are we go backalued, if three years, the russian ruble has gone from $30 to the dollar. we have reached a low point of 84 to the dollar and are now stabilizing at 64, 65 to the
1:16 am
dollar. the oil-producing currencies are going to be much less under stress. the pegs of the middle eastern currencies, which did look stressed, i think those pegs now are going to have much -- be much less under pressure. very much. you bob parker stays with us on bloomberg. the closely watched election takes place at some :00 a.m. london time. london time. italy takes off a slew of pmi data from across europe. yousef: vladimir putin start his annual address to the russian federal assemblage. feds facebook the tells us a positive -- beige book tells us a positive story about the u.s. economy. anna: strength in the chinese economy. we will go live to beijing. yousef: the cash clampdown looks

anna: welcome back, everybody. you are looking at a live shot of hong kong harbor. the hang seng is up. stocks are related to that oil price, which keeps going higher, they are doing pretty well. up 0.2 percent. here is juliette saly. manus: citigroup is set to be considering moving some of its london-based equity and interest rate derivatives and traders to frankfurt after brexit is triggered. according to people with knowledge of the matter, the u.s. firm is in discussions with the german regulator about necessary approvers.

buyers of super luxury vehicles willng 189 dollars or more be hit with the tax. it is their latest bid to combat consumption and promote more fuel-efficient vehicles. yousef: 10% on super luxury. anna: daily. consumption, totally my style. the fed says the u.s. economy has continued to expand across most regions. outlooks were mainly positive. robert kaplan spoke out about the need to normalize policy. >> i believe it is important to strive to take steps to normalize monetary policy because there is a cost to excessive accommodation. in terms of penalizing savers
1:23 am
and creating distortions and imbalances and asset allocation decisions, hiring decisions, business decisions, my own experience has been the imbalances are a easier to see in hindsight and very difficult and painful to address when you address them. yousef: bob parker is still with us. the fed in nature to spot after december as it tries to deal with rising bond yields. oil pricesw rising in the equation and the fiscal with donald trump. how does it navigate all of that? bob: first of all, on the fiscal side, i think as we go into early 2017, we'll get a reasonably clear idea of what the new fiscal initiatives will be in the state. it will be a cutting corporation tax, probably a tax holiday for american companies to bring surface liquidity outside of the states back to the states, and i think we will see some subrogation in income taxes as well. all of that will translate
1:24 am
probably into at least a short-term increase in the therefore, it, and think the important point is we will see a change in that relationship between monetary policy and fiscal policy, and that will support further fed rate increases in 2017. that is despite the argument that perhaps the market is doing the work for the fed itself with the stronger dollar and higher bond yields. it is entirely possible to see fed funds rate of 1.5%, three rate increases in 2017. a fairlyation, 2.5%, robust forecast for next year, we still have got a negative real yield on the fed funds rate. it is a slow move. anna: were kind of inflationary talking about? if you want to put it up on your bloomberg. 1.74 mark. this is the 2% inflation target the fed has. talk us through your forecast.
1:25 am
bob: if you look at the three measuress, the three of inflation, pce, core inflation, and headline inflation. we have seen the emergence between--divergence between those measures over the last year. one theme in 2017 will be as commodity prices stabilize at these levels or slightly higher, so that fits in with my oil forecast now of $50 to $60, i think you will see those measures of inflation probably all converge between 2% to 2.5%. coming that your pce graph, in six months time, i would expect that to be up above 2%. yousef: where does is take us in terms of 10 year bond-year-olds by and -- 10 year bond yields, by and 2017? 3%?re looking to 2.5 to bob: that is not forget, we have
1:26 am
already come a long way. at the low point on the 10 year yield in 2016 was just over 1.2%, so from the low to where we are today, we have already seen 10 year yields up 110 basis at as, i'm not looking further major move, but i do think, you know, by the middle of next year, you know, a tenure tiger yield of the -- target yield is a realistic forecast. anna: the dollar keeps strengthening, then? that is one thing that has been doing some of the work for the fed. bob: absolutely. one has to quantify the extent of the dollar move and realize we have come a long way. 30 dollar on most purchasing analysis is already overbought. it is expensive. yes, the euro could test one. we have come all the way -- yousef: hold that thought.

anna: manufacturing pmi -- the survey showed growth although was fractionally below forecast. for more, let us go now to get more details from bloomberg's china correspondent tom mackenzie. very good to have you on the program. what does the data tell us about the health of china's economy heading into 2017? another forecast beating months for the official pmi data. it is a fourth consecutive month now of expansion. this is the november number we are looking at. there is one caveat. this is a section of the economy, sector of the economy that china is trying to get less reliance on. let me break down the figures. we had the official member and the private number. orders have been picked up, you export orders picking up as well. deflationary pressures at the

1:34 am
they can continue to tackle high property prices. we heard from an economist at hsbc who said this will give toicymakers the confidence keep a tight reign on prices year. the pboc is expected to start to tighten possibly at the end of this year and possibly early 2017 as well. that is what we are expecting. bloomberg intelligence saying this data is a comfort level for policymakers here that they are likely to be relatively relaxed. they are not tackling rebalancing here and to tackle some of that high corporate leverage as well. anna: tom, thank you very much. tom mackenzie for us in beijing. a lot of bring bob parker back in. story the chinese authorities want to be telling at the moment. bob: let us go back to the first half of this year. the first half of this year,
1:35 am
what i call "old china," heavy industry, was probably in recession. what we are seeing is about old part of the economy, whether it engineering, that is no longer in recession. don't expect a major growth acceleration. where we are seeing the drivers in chinese economy in the second half of this year and going into 2017 is basically going to be infrastructure building, a lot of focus on transport, a lot of focus quite rightly on alternative energy, so that hopefully, in a couple years time, you want to be able to show a picture of china chugging along with all of that pollution. consumption, infrastructure, and the sectors of what i call "new china," the health care sector, grossing in excess of 10%. you have to bank economies here. -- you have two economies here. yousef: now, with u.s. yields
1:36 am
moving towards that 3% mark, a lot of anxiety about exposure to e.m. bob: one has got to be very selective. theink going back to beginning of this year, we made a call saying emerging markets for the first time in five years would outperform developed markets, and we have seen some very good rallies this year, most notably in markets like brazil, the russian market has improved also significantly. in 2017, i think emerging markets will continue to outperform, but i think brazil will continue to do well. led by north asia, china, i like the chinese market, it is reasonably undervalued compared to other markets, and i like central and eastern europe. one has to, i think, be cautious about certain emerging markets, which are overpriced, and that is mexico, india, and indonesia, reticular the expensive. anna: india, very topical. fromt to get more thoughts
1:37 am
you on china. chinese authorities are taking various steps to try to stem the weakness in their currency and them outflows from the country capital flows negative, the u.n. weakening -- the yuan weakening. that starts tong destabilize the growth story in china, the fears about the currency is doing? this is the yuan beginning in the white. bob: china has a current account surplus. it's reserves the around 4 trillion u.s. dollars a year and f ago. the first time i ever went to beijing and the early 1980's, exchange reserves were less than 20 billion u.s. dollars. they went to $4 trillion. the reserves are back to 3.1 trillion u.s. dollars. they are concerned about the speed and speculative nature of the capital outflows. i don't think pboc worried about
1:38 am
the chinese renminbi being 690 two the u.s. dollar. i don't think they would worry if in the first half of next year, the chinese remember the went to 710 -- the chinese renminbi went to 710. what they don't like is the speculative rapidity of the capital flows and that is what they are trying to get control of. yousef: britain's chancellor of the exchequer is visiting scotland today to discuss the challenges of brexit. philip hammond will stress the need for the country to remain part of the u.k. and meet with first minister nicola sturgeon and host talks with business leaders in edinburgh. it comes a week after they committed 800 million pounds to boost scottish and the structure. anna: let us get more on the latest from brexit. we have the pound trading -- >> slightly below -- anna: it has sort of paused
1:39 am
after a big fall. we see lots of stories coming out about the long time this is going to take to get a deal done. and in the conversation yesterday around mark carney saying, making the point that we need a very orderly transition to whatever the new regime is. what are your latest thoughts on brexit? how week does the pound go? bob: since the referendum, a lot has happened. the devaluation of the pound from 152 a trading range at the moment of around 120 to perhaps 126, 127. i don't see much upside from these levels against the u.s. dollar given our earlier conversation on dollar strength being maintained. we have the cut in interest rates. qe has restarted. liquidity is pumped into the business system. fiscal targets have been basically forgotten. it have been a number of statements on new infrastructure projects such as the nuclear plants and heathrow expansion, etc..
1:40 am
i think all of that prevents the u.k. going into recession, but i think the forecast growth next year of around 1.5% are realistic. i would be very surprised if we get growth acceleration. we are still dealing with complete uncertainty over the timing of article 50, although large, one said on has to question whether that will happen. the timing of the eventual exit and in that environment, business is uncertain and uncertainty will lead to a downturn in investment spending. yousef: it is all about the uncertainty. mark carney made that clear about the financial stability report, showing some of the risks that, as a result of that uncertainty. how can the boe helped steady the ship little bit? it looks like they are struggling with it because they don't know what to expect. bob: the doe has sort of stabilized the ship in the sense that they have eased monetary
1:41 am
policy. if you look at the monetary and fiscal mix in the u k, you could actually argue that our policy here in the u k is the easiest of any developed economy at the moment. it is not surprising that so far, we have avoided recession, however, the pressure point on the uncertainty of the brexit is not consumption. exports should improve with a weaker pound. imports substitution should take place, but the pressure point is investment spending and investment intentions. it is very clear they are trending down. anna: there is a tussle over the channel over financial services now. mario draghi saying which and is going to feel most of the pain from the brexit process. mark carney making the point interday that it is not european corporate interest to create instability in the city of london because of the role it plays in investment banking. philip hammond has made that point. is that the u.k. overplaying its
1:42 am
hand in financial services or a point well taken on the other side of the channel, do you think? bob: one has to recognize that coming up to these negotiations, in during the negotiations, there is going to be a lot of posturing. i hope a pragmatic solution will be arrived at. however, one has to challenge whether london can stay as the financial hub of europe and the eurozone with the u.k. out of the european union? i think actually, it is to the credit of london that it has aid the financial hub of europe even though u.k. has not been in the eurozone and now obviously, a number of our european partners have not been comfortable -- anna: challenged. bob: precisely. this discussion about london being the continued hub, one has to say, it still remains a key financial center, but there will be some slippage. anna: it is a secret whether the
1:43 am
rest of europe decide on it and alternative location. if they are lobbying in dublin, paris, frankfurt, for pieces of the pie and not heading to one particular destination, the risk is it all goes to new york. bob: there is a strong case that there will be a shift in the financial business away from europe to new york. if one looks at overall levels of financial activity, there will be a win for new york. i think it is wrong to say that there will be a substitute european hub. one cannot say that paris is the new or frankfurt is the new european hub. frankfurt --ly, this has emerged from a lot of our coverage -- frankfurt is in one of the lead spot to replace
1:44 am
or is vying to replace london at the center for financial activity. bob: the keyword is some up. what we're going to see some slippage of business from london to frankfurt and possibly some to paris. let us not forget that the french asset management industry, my industry, is incredibly successful. i would not make that statement about the german asset management industry, so i think you could see some slippage to paris, some to frankfurt, but i don't see, you know, one specific location becoming a new financial hub. i think you'll see this dispersion of business. bob, thank you very much, for spending time with us from credit suisse. yousef: the great meltdown. expectations inflation will rise and the fed will tighten have seen global bonds slump. is it the end of the bond markets finally here? anna: paying dividends. glencore investors have

1:52 am
more realistic. i think it is pretty priced in that we expect the fed will raise rates in december, as you said. data is robust in the u.s.. marilyn: we have a new administration coming in. if you look at the start of this year where treasury yields were, they are not much different. a lot of things happened in between including more easing from the ecb and bank of japan, chinese growth and u.s. growth at the beginning of the year, but we think now, the effect is there value. anna: we have this chart on the bloomberg. the 30 year advanced cut with a record loss. ofs illustrating the size the losses in the bond market for just one month. do we repeat that in december and keep up with this kind of outsized move? marilyn: i would expect that because it's so much has been priced in, unless we have an

outside shock, we would expect it to moderate from there. some of the risks around the ecb, who have yet to inform the markets of what they are planning to do. market expected them to extend their program. that is one of the key risks. especially going into the holiday season, january, i think we would expect to see it moderate slightly from here. it would be a sharp shock in november. yousef: how would you trade the current yield curve as it stands? what are you advising clients? marilyn: currently in the u.s., we are effectively now about mutual, modestly overweight. potentiallym-term, scope for yield to increase slightly. yousef: what is "slightly" in your book? is that the range or looking at? marilyn: it is possible. the one thing in the u.s. treasury curve, the underlying structural demands, means it is going to remain relatively anchored.
