remarkably resilient so it is a vote of confidence in the economy. betty: let's talk more about that market reaction in the asian markets and how they are responding. it is a divergent picture. you have ge japa9n outperforming the back to a vote of confidence if the u.s. economy recovers but we are not seeing that confidence when it comes to sentiment on equities. yes, it is the morning after but over the next 24 hours we had something like 50 different points of economic data, central-bank decisions coming through. of course, also, swiss national bank, the bank of england, and mexico deciding on rates. of event risk coming through and we are seeing that risk diversion playing out

gold but that is now pretty much flat. major losses in australia when it comes to gold as the result of not that much money flowing to safe havens. we will be watching the australian dollar, moving up, coming under pressure from that fed meeting. it is shaping up to be a largely negative trading day in asia with the exception of japan. betty: thank you so much. had thethis of course worst kept secret of the year, the rate hike coming in as expected. janet yellen and her colleagues through a curveball by indicating that more rises could come in the coming months. we will have more on that twist. guest: a twist indeed. we knew the rate hike was coming because so many indicated that it was time to do so. every three months, the fed updates their forecast on the
7:05 pm
economy and that potentially changes how many rate hikes and the monthsy see in and years ahead. here's what happened to baby or janet yellen decided a stronger labor market -- he talked about rising inflation, it hour news team -- said that she took a victory lap looking at the economy. here is what she said. 2.25er the past year, million new jobs have been created and unemployment has fallen further and inflation has moved closer toward longer goals. we expect the economy will continue to perform well with the job market strengthening further and inflation rising to 2% over the next couple of years. the fed has a dual mandate, right? to keep stability, they need to see inflation rising.
7:06 pm
unemployment is at a nine year low. the fed thinks they can get it to 4.5. yellen also talked about rising expectations. others found her maybe a little more hawkish but there is certainly optimism about the economy helping the fed give it a tweet but for markets, it is a big deal. succeeds?nald trump i think the door has opened to not as much gradualism, potentially, as markets were expecting. betty: you were saying all along that the markets for this meeting -- that it would be all about the jobs. what you think of this market reaction? guest: i was a little surprised to on the other hand if you think of the implications -- demarcus markets think about where they are going in the next -- where rates are going and the
7:07 pm
dots are what officials are hered -- given your view, do you think interest rates are going to be? look at how the dots change. i am going to show you part of the terminal -- when you look at it, the far left? that is where the dots were in september. a far right, that is where the dots are now. on the far left you see there were seven members who thought they would be two i expect now there are six expecting 3 -- there is still six that only see two. their redline is what the market is looking at so there is still a bit of divergence but that is what people are watching the janet yellen downsized this and saying that some members of the fiscal policy -- she stressed it is some that to me this is a bit of a soft tilt toward three-putted is still going to depend upon the economy and what tow truck can or cannot do and what it means for the economy. betty: a lot of questions about
7:08 pm
fiscal policy and again about her staying on guest: the ash at a shooting those questions? she took them very carefully i think she is being there a clear. she said interestingly left there is not -- it is not obviously necessary to have fiscal stimulus now for the economy unemployment at 4.6 prevent but she simply said of course there is many reasons to take fiscal steps and at the president -- you know -- that is going to have to be a [indiscernible] alsot is too -- he repeated -- as for the fx -- it is to really -- they do not know what they are. asked again about serving at her term, she said she intends to serve out her term and whether not she is going to have to the make a decision about issues -- if she is asked to step down -- it is too early so i think janet yellen is being,, cool, and collected and she is doing everything -- she can, i think, yvonne, just two, not reacted -- not to overreact -- but two, you know, maintainer authority, maintain her role. definitely tomed

global news 24 hours a day powered by more than 2600 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. this is bloomberg. fell after news of another security breach, this one happened before the one announced last september. it involves the theft from one billion users. we have been tracking the latest on this and we are hearing about this because of an internal investigation. reporter: forensic experts have now revealed there was another earlier breach as you can see, the stock tumbled after hours and what is very interesting here is that yahoo! released its a 2014 breachout in september ahead of its and sale of a web portal to verizon that was concerned impact -- the deal -- the 2014 attack was said to be by a state-sponsored individual.
7:12 pm
it was said to impact email and user passwords, phone numbers, and addresses. now they come out and say that it was a thursday -- 2013 attacked i could have impacted twice as many people. half a billion back in 2014, one billion in so how this plays that will be interesting to see but clearly it does not bode well for the reputation of the company and it certainly is just another obstacle for yahoo! and what has been a challenging year. challenging year. what does that risk -- what is that risk vis-a-vis their deal with verizon? reporter: they are hoping to be transparent and disclose all they know. marissa mayer has been really in the middle of this -- it weakening the reputation many observers say and it has been her goal to sell the web porter $4.8 million deal and it is said
7:13 pm
in a most recent announcement that they expected to go forward in the first quarter of next year. now verizon issued a statement saying as always we will evaluate the situation as yahoo! continues its investigation. they understand there is transparency here -- they have also said they will review the impact before reaching any final conclusion to people close to the matter have told bloomberg that verizon has signaled some misgivings back in september when they heard about the other breach and that if care is an indication that this anyway harms the company or their investments they would take possibly two options will be to cut back the size of betty: the deal another might be to walk away. betty:thank you so much. on yahoo! -- and a data breach -- again, still ahead, the fed's surprise and markets are predicting three rate heights next year. we'll speak to a longtime central-bank watcher on whether the trump presidency may have been a factor in this. next, the chief market strategist at accu trader joins

7:16 pm
♪ ability ofdoubt the the central bank and the global central bank, the fed, to raise interest rates three times a year for the next several years because of the global economy -- i mean, even the u.s. economy -- and housing that will begin to reflect that. of the central forecast 2-3 and the fed said three interest rate hikes is on the upside if there is more of this fiscal stimulus, more growth, more inflation then we think, then the fed will be more aggressive. >> they are doing a good job. they did a good job.
7:17 pm
i -- again -- i have full confidence in the open market. >> [indiscernible] the fedlayers there on decision. let's discuss the implications now. craig mckenna is the chief market strategist at accu trader and he joins us live from sydney. great to have you. we heard a slightly more hawkish tone from janet yellen the same unemployment at four point 6% -- we are close to full employment and it seems that the only lacking indicator now is inflation so what do you make of this yet but should the fed be reconsidering raisinre are they still behind the curve? i think they are to a certain extent. i think that what we saw last night and the weight of the reason the market reacted the way that it it is you know it was only a small move to say three rate hikes instead of two but in not referring to the fiscal stimulus of donald trump in its statement in explicitly kind of excluding that that is given the market the sense that if it is the reflationary kind
7:18 pm
of impact on the u.s. economy that stock traders are editing, the fed is going to have to bed for or maybe even more -- i am in the cap this is the proper do four next year. betty: and why though? greg, because it is in a lot of is what we are seeing reef -- euphoria we have seen -- on hope right now? so, yes,, very much but, if i put the reality of what hope is going to come -- so, we have got a strong employment market in the u.s. we have a relatively the participation rates we can still drag people into the market over there. almost the deflationary impact of oil about to wash out in the first quarter of 2017. that is naturally going to lift the inflation, then when we just are to rise, as well, when donald trump starts to spend money, you know, we don't in the infrastructure and those kinds of things i think the net impact on that is faster nominal growth in with faster nominal growth he will then see inflationary
7:19 pm
pressures rise in the economy heat up a little bit so that the fed, you know, hikes four times -- it is still not a lot -- you know? it is on aggressive and it would still be below core inflation this time next year. betty: what does this mean for yields, then, greg, because, if you show the chart, you see the thead -- i mean, this is most since the 1980's when you take a look at that spread -- it is quite remarkable -- only going to see -- continue to see you back up and yields? -- continue to see the backup and yields? so, i think i think that, when we look at the u.s. economy is and where the fed is relatively -- relative to what the bank of japan did yesterday by, you know, going into the market and bidding out to 25 to seents, we are going that spread continue to widen in favor of the united states and that means that, you know, bond rates are probably headed toward 2.8 -- 3% and that is going to continue to underpin the u.s.
7:20 pm
dollar in a medium-term kind of basis. ok, so, do you think -- and i agree with you -- you know -- when you put it that way -- one rate hike a courtesan; up at you think that, you know, a lot of this is placed squarely on donald trump and sort of you know his potential policies and how they are going to pan out that a lot of it can be placed on sodas the uncertainty -- maybe that shift that we have ics? in trumponom guest: yeah, iguest: think that is the right way to characterize it -- instead of having come out and say, we think four rate hikes and we factor in trumponom ics --what they have done is by explicitly not talking about trumpnomics is explicitly said did right --k you there is a lot of expectation, a lot of, you know, credence going
7:21 pm
to need to be put on what does actually -- actual policies are if it turns out that he spends less or he plans less than what the market is currently factoring that you will see bonds reverse and you will see a lot of reversal in the u.s. dollar. at the moment what the fed did by not talking about it was >> increased policy uncertainty. >>the could actually be quite ugly if we unwind those trays because the expectations are a lot -- or the reality is a lot worse than the expectation? >> yes, i think so. it is 2016. purchase weakness and sell strength. it is a question of when you do it. we have overreacted and we have overreacted to the -- i am just saying those reversals -- i think there is still a chance of that. in my be in january sometime after president-elect trump actually takes office or people see a reversal at some point. we do need to see the actual
7:22 pm
data support everybody's expectations and there is probably going to be a lag so my that would be the 2017 at least the first half is going to be a continuation of a kind of volatility that we have seen across global markets and 2016. >> thank you so much, gray mckenna, the chief market strategist at accu trader joining us live from sydney. now, a quick check on the latest business headlines at this hour. australian telco telecom has won the bid to become singapore's first mobile phone licensee. they paid 74 million dollars for the right to the spectrum which is expected to -- in april. singapore has one of the deepest penetration rates for global -- mobile services. the market is currently dominated by three players did a billn has passed legalizing casinos paving the way for billions of dollars of potential investment. more legislation is needed before so-called integrative

that inflation has picked up. we went through this once a year , two years. now people believe we could get rate hikes if not more. janet yellen seemed to downplay there's just a little bit. -- this just a little bit. wasn'ti'm guessing she in the camp looking for three. diane: no, i would agree with you. she did play that down. there was this extent that some participants are factoring in fiscal stimulus. the fed as a whole, she and thets the fed chair fed as a whole, they cannot make policy on a promise. the fiscal policy that has been promised in terms of progrowth more inflationary,
7:47 pm
all those have to materialize. the fed cannot be preemptive. they have to be reacted to the policies once they are passed and have had an impact on the economy to which is all, as she said, a cloud of uncertainty. shiften: you forecast the to three increases, but the markets were not expecting that. because of the uncertainty on p, in your view, why have the markets reacted so dramatically? is this idea, it is moving from once a year, yellen. the fed thought they would get that in. there was a sense it wouldn't get there. the markets have had a major shift in their expectations about inflation and growth. whether that is accurate or not is debatable. it is feeding into one of the fears they had, rather than
7:48 pm
going against, they always had it right and the fed had it wrong. some people think there could be more rate hikes out there, if we see fiscal stimulus. of course, this did not encompass a lot of fiscal stimulus. the reality, we are at a turning point, is a realization for financial markets. kathleen: you always have your ear to the ground in policymaking circles. what are you picking off about janet yellen? i thought she was on top of her game. she answered, very carefully, i'm going to stick to the end of my term as fed chair and i cannot talk about a decision from donald trump that has not been made. but it must be a tough moment for her. diane: even though she was very rehearsed, they clearly prepared her for this, there was nothing easier usually's he with janet

7:50 pm
kathleen: bill gross was on television, the bond king. he said she has to be careful because of the dollar and emerging markets. diane: that is where one of the pressure points is. the spread between the 10 year german bond, it has gone to a wide level. this is the source of instability in financial markets going forward. part of the reason they want to go so gradually, and she pulls is even small changes in interest rates have onoutsized impact currencies. the spillover effect for currencies, given how interlinked the global economy is on financial markets, whatever happens abroad, can wash up back on our own shores. king this fine
