scarlet: live from bloomberg's world headquarters in new york, i am scarlet fu. joe: i am joe weisenthal. we are 30 minutes away from the close of trading in the u.s.. scarlet: u.s. stocks declining and the dollar slipped into a one-month low. joe: the question is "what'd you miss?" the president-elect calling the currency to strong. theresa may outlined a plan for a clear break from the block, bowing that u.k. will leave the eu single market and answering "is about her vision for britain's future. global leaders are gathered at the global economic forum in switzerland. we'll hear from brian moynihan, john time, and -- of credit suisse -- john carney and -- ti n of deutsche bank and
3:33 pm
jane thiam. breakinguld have a quote from the deutsche bank ceo. this comes from news earlier that the firm settled a suit with the government. that had been hanging over the firm's hea for a while. d scarlet: as part of the settlement, deutsche bank admitted to misleading investors could it was not a situation where they denied wrongdoing. joe: absolutely. it said the mortgage conduct was unacceptable and they apologize. let's look at where the major averages stand as we head toward the close. abigail doolittle is standing by. abigail: there is certainly a decidedly risk off tone to trading activity in u.s. stocks going into the close. we have three major averages all trading lower, near session lows. this follows the weekly decline from last week.
3:34 pm
so, a continuation of the bearish trend. the nasdaq is on pace for its worst drop of the year. russell 2000. growth index is down nearly 1.5%. its worst drop since october 11. some weakness here for u.s. stocks. i was talking about weekly declines and intraday volatility. plus, a move toward haven assets. it has been happening for quite a bit of time. we had a 10-year yield down seven basis points. this tells us investors are seeking the safety of bonds. yields are falling, weighing on the dollar index. it is on pace for its worst drop since july 29, down 1%. when we have a confirmed risk to see ife, you want something does not confirm it. 1%.ave oil up 2/10 of
3:35 pm
earlier it had been up 1%. beyond the strength, saudi arabia thinking they think -- thinking the oil mounts is -- balance tount is in we have golda trading higher by 1.5%, confirming risk off, and we have the vix off of the ties of the day, but nonetheless telling us investors are a little less complacent. we have increasing volatility. it is easy to think it does have to do with president-elect donald trump, but when we hopped into the bloomberg, this chart may suggested has more to do with the fed. in white, we have the dow industrials, which are still up nicely since the election. you want, we have gold, which is still down since the election, but has required -- recovered, and a key areas the 10-year yield in the blue. it is on pace for its fifth week down. it dropped ever since the fed it
3:36 pm
did reach rates for the second time in a decade. it seems to move toward rates moving lower and the haven bid is throwing asset classes off. we could see volatility ahead certainly for stocks. joe: thanks, abigail. "what'd you miss?" heads of states have been moving currency markets. first president-elect donald trump said the dollar was too strong and said the currency reeling. across the pond, theresa may outlined her brexit plan and the sterling posted its biggest one-digging since 2000 and we are joined by greg anderson from bml capital markets head of global fx strategy. i want to start with the dollar. this idea that 2017 would be a good year for the dollar has been so embedded. people think there will be policy divergence -- this handoff from monetary, fiscal policy. now we have donald trump coming out and saying he thinks the dollar is too much. does he have the ability
3:37 pm
long-term to influence? can he job on the currency -- job bone the currency lower? greg: right now we have the assumption that the u.s. will take policy such as raising rates, altering corporate tax policies that are, you know, pro dollar. that has been the assumption -- the u.s. wants a stronger dollar. for him to come in and say something different -- wow. that is an interesting thing to add to the mix. yes, at this moment, if he says something that is not we want a strong dollar, that is big news. scarlet: i like the way you put that -- an interesting to add to the mix, very politics of you and what is the downside of looking at the dollar from only a trait perspective, which is what donald trump seems to do -- trade perspective, which is what donald trump seems to do? there are multiple phases
3:38 pm
of trade deals, and you can't berdych todd the market is going to respond and maybe how good the market is going to respond to your new policy. corporateis a new text policy, for example, you can predict this is how american multinationals will behave, but you do not know what other countries are going to do with their policies next year, and how that is going to impact the goods market with a foreign-exchange market. joe: you mentioned trump coming out and saying the dollar was too expensive, kind of a new element in the market, but should it really be surprising to people -- first of all, he talked in the past about the dollar hurting us. criticize trading partners for the dollar being too low. let's read this quote -- "our companies cannot compete with the chinese now because our currency is too strong and it is killing us. isn't this just the flip side of when he blasts other countries for having their currencies to week? is that really anything new coming from him?
3:39 pm
greg: greg: greg: it is important to see the context in that quote there -- he was speaking specifically about dollar-china, and mably -- maybe not the dollar against euro, canada, all the major trading partners. but, yes, it is the flipside, and i pointed out we worked long and hard to get to a protocol first in the g7, and then into the g-20 when -- where heads of state, finance ministers, central bankers don't target and specifically mention levels of their currencies, and he just blew that. trump isthing tells me not going to be excited to abide by g-20 protocol. scarlet: i think we will have new protocol. greg: new protocol in march. scarlet: hasn't this been generated by the fact that everyone was crowded in the long-dollar position we came into the year? thinking the dollar was gonna a move higher -- we came into the year thinking the dollar was
3:40 pm
going to move higher. greg: we came on the back of the fed break -- rate hike. we got excited about tax policy changes and other things. , would say that ultimately almost any tax policy change the u.s. banks will be good for the dollar and it will move higher, but people were thinking that is going to happen in the first hundred days, and it is more like july we'll get that bill. let's switch gears and talk about the pound/dollar having a massive day. isolatelittle tricky to because they leaked sunday night as soon huge, hard brexit speech, and they cite the market into thinking there would be something new -- and they were quotes about how they thought the pound was going to take it it ended up surging about 3% -- one of the best days in years. it did not seem like theresa may said anything new here. would we go for the pound here?
3:41 pm
you know, i would be a seller on this little spike that we got here today could you are right to point out your dollar index was up, 1.5% -- today. you are right to point out your dollar index was up, what, 1.5%? this doing was up a little bit, but not a dramatic move here to call it .5%. -- move. call it .5%. i would say the market was short sterling. she came out with a nice, a little bit aggressive approach toward the european union -- we want to be your friend, but don't screw us. i think that might have caught the market by surprise. joe: that only gets us back to january 6 on the sterling. scarlet: nonetheless, you have to remember the data has gotten better -- they upgraded the assessment of u.k. gdp this year. it has been wrong on several
3:42 pm
things in the past, but it is a little more bullish on the u.k.. how do you square that with the idea that inflation is only going to accelerate and we saw that with the data today? inflation does accelerate on pass-through from the exchange rate, but it takes a most a year. we have begun to see stilling dropping from 1.50 to 1.20. joe: greg anderson, thank you. a quick programming note -- fed chair janet yellen speaks on " the goals of monetary policy and how we pursue them" in san francisco at 3:00 p.m. eastern on wednesday. bloomberg will have live coverage of her remarks. scarlet: coming up, bank of america's ceo brian moynihan from the world economic forum in davos. will get his take on president-elect donald trump. this is bloomberg. ♪

3:45 pm
joe: "what'd you miss?" bank of america ceo brian moynihan us from the world economic forum in davos and discussed the regulatory environment under the incoming trump administration and the strategic transformation of the bank's business. brian: there is not really any new news there. we do not lose the key parts of capital liquidity. i think it is more of a dialogue that will emerge about the balances that can be had about -- between safety and soundness and growth. i think they'll be an interesting dialogue. it will still be a lot of work to get all of this done. the campaignd on trail donald trump saying he wanted to roll back dodd-frank. some city legislation that would replace that is not so exciting. what you think is going to happen?
3:46 pm
are we going to see a change in regulation, or is it more going to be the implementation of regulation? i think it will be the implementation of regulation -- there are things we have to fix after the crisis the weather capital markets business works. the way to principal investment, that is not going to change dramatically. i think there is a lot of focus on the word roll back this word or that word. the reality is this is a question of having a new dialogue, a new group of people about what the right balance and answer is. erik: what i am really trying to get at, i suppose, is the assumption that a president trump who talks about deregulation is going to be good for financial services, good for wall street, but maybe not, right? is it possible the trump presidency will not be such a good thing for wall street, and it won't be such a good thing for the biggest banks in the country?
3:47 pm
to what you back up hear from clients and customers, and the confidence levels of consumers and business leaders that come up. i think there is a feeling that people are in for businesses and growing businesses. whenever that happens, that is good for banking and the economy. erik: 20 economy grows, everyone benefits that i got that part. i am saying more along the regulatory side. brian: what i am saying is if the construct around the economy changes, the business we lend to are more aggressive, that helps us grow loans and deposits, and it will be a debate about what the right regulation is and how it will be mitigated over time, there is also a debate across all industry that will be helpful for growth. you think 2017 will be the first year in a long while that your bank and others might actually be able to focus on real strategic priorities
3:48 pm
instead of reacting to the regulatory environment and being forced to cut cost because there has been so much pressure on the top line? brian: let's go back to -- we have been focused on that every day. think about what we did in the consumer business. had 5000came ceo, we 700 branches. we have 4500. -- 57,000 team members. now we have around 25,000. he did not know you could deposit checks -- you did not think about it, and now it is about 20% of all checks deposited there is a massive transformation going on in the business that will go on -- deposited. there is a massive transformation going on. it has changed the way customers interface with institutions. 20% of sales are mobile. 29.6 million banking customers. those are numbers that are not
3:49 pm
going to change. erik: what can you do if the regulatory overhang goes away? brian: i think it is more about capital liquidity, those types of things. we will not change the way we operate the company in terms of doing the right things for commercial clients, our treasury services businesses it it might come easier at times, but what we do has not changed in its basics the last six or seven years, and we focus strategically on driving it or driving it. -- erik: the interest rate environment is getting more positive. can we streamline that out to the end of the year? if rates don't go down, they will be round numbers. they just generally, you can straight line that out. erik: that has more to do with the 10-year, two and a quarter, or the overnight rate?
3:50 pm
it moved up, so it is both of those. after the end of the third rates went up 1%. now we are at $3 billion, and -- difference between that, you have to always look back and say this sounds like a science project at what drives that is the $60 billion in deposits that we grew, the $20 billion in loans. that math is what drives it. caps willise, the move. it takes both to make it work. as -- it is not just the rates rising. erik: after net interest income, will be the second biggest revenue driver in 2017, do you figure? brian: we make half the money on spread net interest income, and half on fees to the drivers of
3:51 pm
these are the wealth management business. the consumer business, card fees, and trading businesses. those of the big drivers. if those go well, we go well. erikthat was bloomberg's schatzker with bank of america ceo brian moynihan in davos. scarlet: it is time for the bloomberg business flash. u.s. regulators have officially filed suit against qualcomm in a san jose court for allegedly using unfair practices to license its technology. the fcc says those prices caused higher cell phone -- ftc says those prices cause higher cell phone prices. qualcomm is the world's largest maker of semi conductors and makes most of its product for technology licensing. try to put an exact figure on how much is owed by the world's largest company -- richest company. eu competition watchdogs ordered island to clawback $14 billion plus in unpaid taxes.

not look to be ending anytime soon. of ai'm looking at how big day the pound is having and i'm looking at the historical return histogram to really get a sense of how big today is. this bell curve distribution here -- the blue line is every pound move, essentially, for the last year. what you can see is this move over 2.9% today is way outside of the normal distribution. most days are between .15% up or down. this bottom part here is another way to look at it. as you can see, the green bar at the end surging past the greater than two standard deviation move. there is a pound game, and dollar weakness, which really amplified the move. still, you can see on the chart how extraordinary the action is. scarlet: all the political risk embedded in currency prices. joe: hubble's people are caught on the wrong side. scarlet: the market close in

that is kind of where it was last week. if we look at a one-month chart, you can see how far we have come, erasing the gains, the 2.56.'s, everyone said this would be the year of higher gains, but for now it has been low. scarlet: the big story in the markets was the dollar, which is heading down, the biggest single day loss since july for the bloomberg dollar index. joe pointed this out earlier, this is wtrs go. the dollar is one of the worst performing currencies this year. if you use the yen as your base case, what is interesting here is the dollar is right down 3.7% where the pace of his 3.7%. that is its own story. the british pound is 2.3%. it is noticeable how much the dollar has fallen off. joe: the pound was weaker this

scarlet: those are the market minutes. joining us now is a multi-asset strategist at blackrock investment institute. i know you want to get high-yield when it comes to raise your -- measuring risk in the market, but i want to know how things are moving in lockstep once again. it is a very risk off scenario. kerry: we are coming back to this environment where it is risk on, risk off. the markets are trying to get some direction from where we are going with the fiscal policy and how it will tie into monetary policy. as we get more clarity, president elect from inaugurated on friday in his first 100 days, we will see what that looks like going forward. joe: the big story domestically, the selloff in the dollar after donald trump expressing his views that the dollar is too high. a key driver you pointed out is yield spreads. ultimately to some extent, or
4:05 pm
yield differentials, u.s. rates and foreign counterparts -- how much can he push the dollar, and how much of it is going to be driven by the yield differentials? terry: today was all about the rhetoric, but the reality is we are still moving into an environment where u.s. economic growth is at a completely different cycle versus the european peers and japanese peers. we have this large fiscal stimulus that actually delivered. even though it is more of a 2018 story, it still beats to a stronger dollar. there will be pullbacks, and markets will trade strongly at first in one line, but as this materializes, fiscal policy will get more direction. we see a stronger dollar, but as we wrote about, we are expecting this to be more modest going forward. scarlet: we started off modest in 2017.
4:06 pm
another chart you brought to us, it shows how high-yield bonds ours -- are paying a premium in the most of two years. what does this say about the markets right now? terry: one of the questions we get a lot is, what do we do with oil at these levels? how do we express trade. we look at energy credit is a good opportunity over the last years, but energy credit spreads and tightened significantly within high-yield, so what we are recommending to clients is to be neutral in energy credit. there is not enough spread being offering compensation to foreign investors. we are recommending neutral and see if there is any more pullback to get back in. joe: what about non-energy portions? terry: we still like credit, but one of the things we are trying
4:07 pm
to do in the multi-asset portfolio is take down the beta risk. we are seeing strong performance in high-yield going back to 2016 versus investment-grade credit. investment-grade credit relative to high-level yield -- scarlet: so that is not just a two inspectors completely. terry: we want to focus on cyclicals at this point. we echo what the imf has talked about, higher global growth going forward in 2017. that should lead to cyclical range of sectors outperforming not only equities but fixed incomes. joe: you see the chart. there is a massive sarge -- surge in high-yield. it looks like the economy was going to horror. oil was crashing. going back to that, how is important -- how important is oil? terry: it is a significant
4:08 pm
macroeconomic variable. you will seegher, some demand. if global growth is moving higher, businesses are investing, people are transporting across not only goods and services across the globe. oil is the basic frontal -- fundamental macroeconomic variable. president-elect donald trump will become the president friday at noon. what is the key thing you are going to be watching for? terry: we have to see what the trade policy is going to be, what the tax reform is going to look like. we may not get a lot from the speech on friday, but the first 100 days, we will see what this kind of tax reform looks like and the trade policy. that is tremendous implications on specific sectors and industries, notably oil. scarlet: what is the risk we
4:09 pm
don't get anything specific? he is very vocal on big policy, but he kind of leaves the details to those he delegates to, and maybe they won't be as transparent. terry: there is a tremendous divide as we look within the republican party. a lot of people said as in his they gain control of the houses of government, it would be automatic fiscal policy. now we are seeing deficit hawks that do not want to continue to balloon the balance sheet. they want this tax reform something that is to -- revenue neutral. i would say the more hawkish members of the publican party work with the conservative members who want the fiscal stimulus to be delivered. joe: terry simpson, from blackrock investment, thank you. scarlet: it has been a busy day, but "what'd you miss?" theresa may outlined her plans to extract britain from the

-- 2019. theresa may's plan for brexit. in a speech, she vowed to seek a smooth and orderly brexit,'s budget remains committed to honoring the voters. theresa may: i want to be clear. what i am proposing cannot mean membership of a single market. european leaders have said many times that membership means accepting the four freedoms of goods, capital services, and people. being out of the e.u., a member of the single market, means complying with the e.u.'s rules and regulations that implement those freedoms without having a vote on what those rules and regulations are. rallied pound also today. theresa may said parliament will get a vote on the final deal.
4:16 pm
joining us now is megan green from manual asset management. welcome back to the show. what is the big take away from theresa may's highly anticipated speech? shen: this is the clearest has been, but there was nothing surprising, or nothing we didn't know already. the markets i have spoken to have been disappointed, but they were really going with hope over experience or logic. there was no way the u.k. could stay in the single market and limit the movement of people. joe: it seems pretty definitional. she said herself, she wants free trade, but the e.u. defines the single market including free flow of labor. she is against that, so by definition they have to exit the single system and find something new. it did not seem like any other way, just like it has to be that way. megan: it was unsurprising.
4:17 pm
what was surprising was the conciliatory vote she adopted towards her country apart. she had things like -- her counterpart. she had things like the defense that was active. not a shot across, but maybe she will bring this out later. she also mentioned parliament will end up voting on the final deal, which we knew we had to if it at some point, but votes against it, the u.k. is not even a member of the wpo. it is only a member of the e.u., so they have to negotiate everything. joe: it looks like hard brexit and harder brexit. over whatr the hope is being done. one thing that is being done, investors and traders have been frustrated about, is the lack of details. she did not want to disclose much, because she did not want to tip off her partners in negotiating, give them advantage
4:18 pm
. we presume we are getting the whole story? she is withholding stuff. megan: there are a lot of details that need to come out, but the thing the rest of the you does not really know, i think it is probably wrong. not really know, i think that is wrong. they have agreed they will have to leave the single market. they would like to maintain part of the union, but not sure how they can do that. all of the details will come out. we know roughly the issue were the u.k. stands, it is a bigger question for the rest of the year. joe: to discourage the e.u. from theng -- she discouraged e.u. from taking a stance against england. there was a lot of cross-border manufacturing flows and changes. it would hurt a lot of european countries if they try to hurt the u.k.
4:19 pm
is she right about that? megan: she is to a certain degree. there is some truth, and trade wars hurt everyone ultimately. but i think also what european leaders have to go up against is how they are going to fair in upcoming elections relative to anti-european factions and their own countries. so it will be primarily domestic, not really thinking about the trade aspect. scarlet: one thing in the u.s. might be a border tax adjustment. donald trump said to the wall street journal over the weekend, anytime i hear border adjustments, i don't love it. usually means we get adjusted into a bad deal. that is what happens. when you did analysis, this is something that was part of paul ryan's proposal. megan: it is supported by a lot of republicans who are not traditional protectionists actually, more moderate. but trump said it was too
4:20 pm
complicated. it is actually not, but it is a bad deal. whether it happens according to theory or not, and there are questions, it will probably push the u.s. into inflation and the rest of the world into debt deflation. those two things are perfectly terrifying. joe: trump obviously would like to move the policy in some way in more favor of domestic companies, even if it does not help them. if the border tax adjustment one approach to doing that? megan: it removes the current institute we have on the tax structure for companies to move profit and production abroad. more companies might be incentivized to say in the u.s.. -- stay in the u.s. ultimately i think in the past we have seen current account adjustments affect the currency
