coach teams of kids who compete in these big fed contests, get so into the fed and fed policies. actually, the more i think about not put it past them. it's interesting that she's talking about the mission of the med. fed, theture of the responsibilities of the fed. it's interesting at this is a nationwide, is because it seems to me this is part of an outreach. this is part of the fed saying, here's who we are. what we do. here's why we do it, because right now the fed feels like more than ever, are under attack in congress. donald trump has been critical. some people are talking about changing the structure of the fed. quiet janeter yellen way, she and other officials are saying, hey, wait a minute. this is a way to have an outreach to the public. if you put it in that context, that makes it all the more interesting. i think that janet yellen -- i not quiten she was named fed chair and she was competing with somers, the treasury secretary, people from -- who were there at park were coming up, go,
janet! they were all for her. she really has, i think, some to people. it is a powerful thing that the fed is exercising now. strikes me that that's part of it. >> well, kathleen, we also heard speak this week as well. and the five fed presidents that spoke earlier really carried the when it comes to rate hike messaging. from how i interpret it, it's should weke, why hike, more so than why shouldn't we? about.'s what it's all the fed knows it's going to hike this year. last year, in time, they thought they were going to hike the rates four times. but they know this is what they agenda.the five bank presidents. let's give you some sense of the numberaid about of rate hikes this year. we had patrick harker, he's a voter. three is appropriate. he said that recently. yes, keep thed, policy focus on rate hikes. it's time to do it. at it. even hint
charlie evans has said recently he's also a fed voter. he spoke today. two is possible. didn't really elaborate. if you have a terminal, jump in with me now. thateft-hand side, triangle of dots, the middle row, long one, that's six fed officials saying, given my view hoff the economy, i -- of the economy, i see three rate hikes in 2017. there's about a third that don't see that many. this is what we kind of already knew. jim bowler, president of st. louis fed, at the very says, no, rates should remain exceedingly low right now. stimulus, they talked about fed policy, uncertainty. we're seeing janet yellen talking about fed policies dwarfed by big structural factors like productivity. but this question of stimulus is very important, because if succeeds in cutting taxes, boosting spending, several speakers have said i'm
not counting it into my forecast now but certainly it's an upside risk. think this is another possibility. i'm very interested, because staying on top of current events. this is what they do. they asked her the same difference will donald trump make? do you believe he's on the right track with his policies? looks like we're getting a nice round of applause. now we'll be waiting to hear she gets from her audience at that country in just speaking from washingt, she did mention she will not be speaking about fed policy. forl continue to watch lines coming out. breaking news right now. started trading. take a look at that! we are seeing the shares pop. 6.5% right now. this is surging after third quarter earnings did beat estimates. about the third quarter profit here. 42.1 of, a 3%, about billing and yen. that did beat expectations by billion yen from among

well. he has returned home this and the special prosecutor saying he has denied most of those allegations. we'll continue to watch that one. samsung shares still down 2%. let's check back with the broader markets with c.e.o., george, who joins us live from melbourne. we are seeing here kind of here.- losing steam can we see it's over? are we just seeing a bit of a ahead of inauguration day for trump? >> yeah. of profit hiking. obviously markets rally in anticipation of a number of things. rally.conditions of this fiscal stimulus. landscape, a new given the last five years with the sort of expectation that monetary policy takes. the potential fiscal stimulus, revised activity being hire. most people have global growth at 3.5. of that.he upper end
anticipatione, in of all of that, the market rallied. the profit taking at the moment. the final point is it's truck a good backdrop for risk assets. go lower,markets can on a month to month basis, but thisar end, second half of year, a little more exuberance to those earnings. >> so it's like the animal reawakened, asen some have called this theme, george. been tracking some of the losses we have seen on wall street of late. we're seeing one of the best januaries in three years, i think, as we last checked. tosee yields continuing fall. the dollar kind of in this holding pattern. what are the implications for commodities? are we seeing enough momentum here to continue this rally,
which has been quite remarkable? >> yes. look, it has been a remarkable commodities. let's just exaggerate, go back nine months. extraordinary event. a thing to highlight is this is a new structural framework. so commodities look weaker and they're going to be specific commodity issues. a structural commodity perspective, when you are variousat upgrades and grades of upgrades of economic upgrades,nd earnings it's supported for bulls and -- structurally, still a backdrop. while profit taking at the moment is warranted, the weaknesswe saw, the six months as well, behind us. there's a good backdrop, a good to evenr commodities reengage and rally in the second half of this year. precondition global upgrades come through, economic activity on the back of stimulus.ptom
thethat framework takes expectation of possibly three hikes. of excess economic activity. commodities, high by year end. profit taking at the moment. they are cyclical. it's a good backdrop for '17 and ag activity in '18. depending on what you look at. to what degree is this going to risk, and how high is that threshold for asia pack? >> yeah. question. i mean, obviously energy and oil, many different dynamics and opec and non-opec members, et cetera. but this is the rub of it all. when you've got upgrades of stimulusd.p., fiscal expectations, if you have a spark of energy process in that
framework, that is a true reflection trade. haven't really seen that in the past decade or so. processes spike as you're getting a burst of upward a good that's not scenario. but it's great for high cyclicals and materials and the like. so that is one of the risks. but there are many risks, of course. a separatehy that's factor. but the longevity of high energy process doesn't feel warranted, demand-supply dynamics but that doesn't mean they can't as g.d.p.'s reaccelerate year.me this lar you.ank george, thank you as well. we'll continue on with some of these breaking lines, we are of samsung and the special prosecutor in korea. after that 24-hour questioning vice chairman, lee, he has been sent home. moste has denied
allegations. but the prosecutor now saying a requestare deciding for lee's arrest, either today or tomorrow. also, we have learned that this probe has widened to not just but now also other companies, according to the special prosecutor. so we have continued to watch of this case and how they are handling some of these things. seen a cozy we have relationship between the government as well as some of these conglomerates. seems not to be the case this around. we're going to watch those. here on bloomberg daybreak asia.
