saudi arabia says all producers participating in output cuts agreed on prolonging the deal through the first quarter of 2018. speaking to the energy minister, he also said an extension would help producers reach their goal of trimming global stockpiles to a five-year average. i have not gotten or heard any country that is against the extension per se. everybody wants the extension because we realize we have the objective of bringing global inventories to a five-year level. juliette: global news, 24 hours a day, powered by over 2600 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. you can find more stories on the bloomberg at top . that oil story is the theme of the day in asian markets, you are seeing a big bounce in equity markets, the nikkei up by .4%, export data coming through at of japan.

grow around the world and the emerging markets grow twice as fast. >> can you break down the units where you want to defend your market share? >> i want to grow everywhere. we have a high market share, and clients want multiple vendors and suppliers. that's completely understandable. i have publicly said that investment banking may get harder but that doesn't mean you can't gain share in this part of the world. we just know what is going to be harder. >> what about fixed income? a lot of your competitors are trying to beef up that. >> yeah, we have a good share their but when we look at it, if you look at what we can do better in that country, we have plenty of things to do better around the world. we have to maintain the shares. competition is a good thing.
we have never been worried about competition. >> we spoke in paris a couple months ago about regulation. what is the mood now? are you still confident about the future for wall street? >> yeah. the trump administration wants to deregulate, and most of us regulations have been holding that growth. i'm still optimistic that you will have some regulatory reform. after years of regulations, it makes sense to look at what was done, what could be done better, will could simplify the burden of businesses, what could help people expand employment and grow the economy. no one is asking for wholesale throwing out of regulations, just improve what is done. manus: president donald trump is
also in riyadh, where he made his first major address to the muslim world and made a hundred dollars -- made $100 billion worth of business deals. >> yesterday we signed historic agreements with the kingdom that will invest almost $400 billion in our two countries, and created many hundreds of thousands of jobs in america and saudi arabia. anna: joining us now in the the head of investment strategy and research. great to have you on the program. talk about some of the things we have heard about over the weekend. jamie dimon talking about being broadly optimistic about the global economy, next in with what you have been saying, upgrading your growth forecasts for 2017 for some parts of the world. >> indeed.
there's ater, slowdown in momentum, but we were comforted by the fact that investment is finally picking up in the united states. in the eurozone, if anything, numbers have been better than expected, and the emerging markets are just rolling along. altogether we were at the margin where things are a little bit better. manus: it's interesting when you hear jamie dimon talking about regulation, optimistic for wall street and regulation. last week the markets had a shake. we lost a considerable amount of value in a short. it was time. the last time it took us nearly three months to recover. dimon is focusing clearly on deregulation. tax cuts. the great expectation is in that price. is it for you in terms of equities? >> for sure, valuations are not attractive anymore when you
think of a globally, so we think at the moment it is still an opportunity to concentrate on specific themes. they have great opportunities, so we remain interested in the market. anna: one of those things is investing in infrastructure. we see a lot of guests talk about that, and this is one of the big things in saudi arabia, $100 billion ambitions for infrastructure in conjunction in saudi. what are your expectations? >> infrastructure is front and center for us, in terms of the long-term investment theme because there is the possibility for many governments to directly fund infrastructure programs of this extends, so the private sector and private investors are likely to be able to share in something that is absolutely necessary, whether it is
transport, water, energy, infrastructure, but also affordable housing. we think this is going to be long-term. anna: we get enough funding that because of low interest rates -- >> exactly, exactly. most of the pension funds are yielding assets, and infrastructure can offer that. manus: let's talk about the market expectation. we will wait for the minutes of the federal reserve this week -- goldman says they are scaling back expectations. 10 year government bond yields have 3%. consensus,75% is the bloomberg is 2.8% by the end of the year. when you look at the noise, you listen to the lines coming from riyadh, wilbur ross saying he can't imagine another day that has been as good for the united states or the kingdom, high-fiving with jared kushner
-- what does that do to your yield forecast? do you buy into the goldman view that politics might trump the yield hike? >> it's interesting, because at the beginning of the year, we were not expecting yields to shoot up like a rocket. we frankly did not see this fiscal expansion getting growth of those levels in real terms. overtimes leah -- overtime we upgraded our forecast, and we agree in 12 months time it will be around 2.8%. anna: ok. u.s. 10 years. we will talk about commodities and the like. thank you very much. she stays with us. manus: coming up, crude climbs after saudi arabia's energy minister signals output curves will continue into next year. we discuss. this is bloomberg.
anna: welcome back. "bloomberg daybreak: europe." 6:20 in london, each: 20 in jerusalem -- 8:20 in jerusalem. president trump is due to visit israel today, and he spent the weekend -- he will be arriving in israel later today. manus: saudi arabia's energy minister says that oil producers have agreed to extend the cuts by nine months. crude oil climbs to $51 per barrel after extending the cuts through the first quarter of 2018. producers hit that five-year average. i have not heard of any country that is against the extension per se, everyone wants
the extension because we realize it will bring in global inventories to the five-year average. >> are you concerned that the market is already progressing -- already pricing the market cuts in? >> i am not looking for a specific price, what we are looking for is an agreement and clarity for the market, steady as we go, committed to that five-year average, with stewardship of the market by a large group of producers, opec and non-opec, working together. is claritye clearly of where the market is going so that the people invest in this concerned about prices over the when supplies --
are short and demand will be approaching 100 million barrels, we have the annual decline and unless we invest and we overcome this supply with significant capacity coming in, we will face a short. we don't want the basket to be squeezed. >> i understand you are talking about a price, but i have been covering opec for many years and shale producers are now part of the equation. let's say it doesn't have the effect you want longer-term. would you think of overpumping, so the price goes down? >> that has never been -- we have never over pumped to squeeze anybody out. i think supply and demand lead to balance, and we have said saudi arabia has the capacity
and we will do what is necessary. market that the structure was off a few years ago with a divergence between supply and demand. and the opec action in 2014 would not have done the job. with the restructuring of supply and demand trajectories that took place over the last few years, opec is able to calibrate supply with our risk partners from out side to bring the supply-demand balance better, bring inventory down, and get clarity for investments. anna: the saudi oil minister. our guest is still with us. one of my favorite lines from that interview with francine was "we welcome shale." hey welcome shale but they want
it stable. >> yeah. there has always been a swing factor in the oil markets and among oil producers. oil, and that is not something new. market, andf the what's interesting about the technology of shale is that it has relatively quickly adapted. we do think the balance of the market is what oil parties are and the expected demand for oil products was a good economic background. manus: it's interesting how he said we didn't ever squeeze the market. one of the consequences of the oil shift is a high correlation -- you have the aussie, lenny,
and kiwi. this is the bloomberg commodity index. the market has gone aggressively short. we are heading to the steepest three-month shift ever. what does that say to you? is that an opportunity for you >> -- for you? you have a contrarian view. >> we do. we think oil related currencies are undervalued, and therefore we think it's a good entry opportunity for investors to undervalueds currency that would benefit from a rebound. anna: do you like gold? gold likes turmoil, but it also likes inflation. >> for gold, what's really important in our view is real interest rates and the u.s. dollar. we find that at the margin,
i've spent my life planting a size-six, non-slip shoe into that door. on this side, i want my customers to relax and enjoy themselves. but these days it's phones before forks. they want wifi out here. but behind that door, i need a private connection for my business. wifi pro from comcast business. public wifi for your customers. private wifi for your business. strong and secure. good for a door. and a network. comcast business. built for security. built for business.
>> when you regulate smaller banks differently than bigger banks it's understandable. let them sort it out. ceohat was jpmorgan speaking exclusively to france inlet adriatic. , to bloomberg daybreak: europe. >> we have a new addition -- you know to get us wish on your stories about the theater -- the was president saudi arabia over the weekend, dancing with swords. bring to the buildings, this is trump backing his criticism on the islam --
best game in defense contracts -- $110 billion. the president lives today and will arrive in israel later on. >> the next story is eu ministers having a busy day in brussels ahead of them, trying to clinch a deal on a greece bailout, while laying out exit negotiation positions. u.k. threatened to quit talks if they don't drop demands for payment of as much as 100 billion euros. there were numbers of all sizes. >> there was a number of $100 billion, jean-claude juncker talked about $60 billion, others have talked about 40-60. this plenty of numbers out there. -- i wasst daybreak sure you -- we just touched on opec, others agreeing -- potentially to extend cuts for nine months to saudi arabia's energy minister. ins -- this will be made
may. >> we will have full coverage of that. >> we will. >.? think he will be there. >> don't miss your plan. [laughter] social divide after being reelected amid arguments over inequality. >> they won a residing victory in friday -- central pulse. as voters endorsed his efforts to steer the nation out of isolation through his nuclear we've beeno kamal -- -- let's get the politics. -- very good morning. >> good morning. it's a relief for ron a, and resounding endorsement of his policies engaging with the west, trying to bring iran out of isolation. we saw celebrations across around the country -- reality
check. ultimately, that was overshadowed by the latest commentary that came out of riyadh. been anght have acceptance speech on saturday when he said, iran would not succumb to humiliation or threats. i need to run you through these comments just for context. hearing from the saudi king cometh comparing our run to the spearhead of global terrorism and u.s. president donald trump saying, ukrainian -- government gives terrorists states harboring financial backing and social standing needed for recruitment. all nations of conscience quote, must work together to isolate iran and to it funding for terrorism. this is a major setback for the iranian government. , getting the campaign a rate of a solution will help the average iranian in terms of body of life. nightly winds out of the sale of a moderate -- extended to its second term. this is sheer irony. connected anywhere's for him if he tried to charge this -- what
he's going to have to do now is find a way to rely another partners outside of the united states to delay any further isolation. he will have another wave coming, the first was riyadh trade some analysts we've spoken to expect further coming out of the meeting today in israel with the u.s. president >> is this is a many parts of the west coming yousef, will be trying to work out how they are able to do business with iran, it being opened to the west. how is rouhani dealing with the west? does it resent that relationship little bit? many european businesses still want to be there. yousef: right. the best way to compare two is -- the stronger the alliance between saudi arabia and united states, the less advantageous it is for iran. anduld but hassan rouhani
his government and a quarter in terms of having to make more concessions to bring more partners on board. europe has been more open to a conversation with iran. see there were european partners who do a lot of business in iran, a policy chief graduated hassan rouhani on the victory. good sign of modernism and way forward in iran in terms of brother collaboration. the other question becomes, if you look at what kareem scioscia percent from the carnegie -- endowment for international pc he said, there are few major countries who quotes, believe iran is the greatest source of instability in the region three key countries like russia, .urope, china those countries are unlikely to easily to be able to tag on to these plans from the u.s. and tcd to isolate walls around iran. >> yousef, thank you, great reporting from tehran. iranianhave more election coverage -- the
discussion with someone who shares the desk chairs the british board -- iranian chamber of commerce. >> here are some highlights for your week ahead. president trump continues his first overseas trip to israel. then the government budget request sent to april 1 $.7 trillion of cuts as part of plans to balance the budget. >> on wednesday, the fed releases its minutes of its fomc. delegates gather in vienna on thursday. they will also be there with the partners to decide whether to extend their regime supply cuts. >> trump runs of the week by joining chief seven leaders for their annual summit sicily. any comments from that we're keeping an eye on.
so i try to put these things together, we saw a great deal of volatility for change. this was also in emerging markets. what is your attitude towards emerging markets right now? we get volatility even in developed classes because of what we had last week from president trump, where does e.m. had? >> into -- emerging markets surprise us by how strong they have them and the beginning of the year. is sowing the outperformance emerging markets of done. just out of a discipline -- the fact that emerging markets actually are not positively by oil prices specifically, it's a good time to take a bit of profit on that. it's just good discipline. we're waiting emerging markets as a result. i think would call -- this is beginning to take its
own form, in terms of where you work, switzerland -- also in the eurozone, take a look at this. this is the ritz reversal on the euro. it is -- it's positive for the first time since 2009. there seems to be an aggressive shift in terms of the euro. this is a three-month i-5 risk reversal. don't ask me to calculate a but it's on the move. do you join -- had that become consensus, for the field there is more money to come towards europe? >> at the moment, flows are showing that although some inventors -- eurozone equities are still flowing into the market, this is supporting a market that traditionally benefits when the currency is weakening event. we think the giro is too strong at the -- of the euro is too strong at the moment. >> it got through 110 and paused . hasn't stopped out?
>> those fluctuations and the short-term, i tend to never make forecast around those. what i know for sure is that there is a law of gravity. the was dollars one that is valued the moment. that's in terms of what to expect from the federal reserve come and support for this it's an, so we think opportunity to consider eurozone -- expect the euro to weaken. >> which equity would you like -- do you like at the moment? interesting for me, the embassy specifically around europe -- interesting that you think industrial consumer staples will underperform may be. industry is in the context of what you said about infrastructure -- i remember, there used to be a trade where you about those engineering
companies that would do well from emerging markets and also -- not the last markets so few at the moment. >> industrials have benefited already infrastructure expectations are in prices -- in the system as of last year. it has always been interesting to go after the sectors that have been liking -- lagging. pr i od -- period of a long-term trend. we like the energy sector tactically. it's a great opportunity to consider -- if you are expecting -- ways to recover. >> thank you very much for sharing of thoughts with us. >> if you are a bloomberg -- you can watch the show using the tv function as well as video
with the situation, fields will be replaced by jim backus, cubesmart -- of spokesperson says it all comments -- president clary at -- merge to create a chemical company with an enterprise value of about $20 billion. deal stock will see clary at -- 52% of the new entity to be hauled on smith clary. the new company's global headquarters will be in switzerland with operations running out of the u.s.. the film has had seekers -- ceo jan jenness will succeed eric alternate the home of the world's largest cement maker. the appointment take effect on october 16. last month's announcement that ultimately resigned in july following internal probing into operations in syria -- the latest upheaval at lafarge -- creation in 2015 from a merger of french and swiss rivals. blackstone is said to be eyeing more than $100 billion in
infrastructure investments, with a new strategy anchored by saudi arabia's public investment fund. they've agreed -- agreed to commit $20 billion in the pull of blackstone plans to raise the same from other investors. this comes as tech executives defend -- as he was president trump visits the kingdom. that's your bloomberg business flash. >> thank you very much. matt miller joins us from berlin. the dates here. they'reone of josh -- helping to rally troops -- opec and non-opec this year. we focused on? >> oil. it continues its rally again. take a look, dlt out screen up which shows you a great overview of the different commodities. the tapestry nymex crude at tempos -- of a percent -- brent crude getting up 8/10 of a percent as well.
are up thisils morning. that will push through some performance and indexes as well. take a look here at the wb ice cream -- you can see that the asian indexes here -- make a gaining of half a percent, hang seng gaining 1%. the games there at the bottom of your screen that you see are coming through because of gains in energy producers. if i click on the futures tab right here, you can see that we are looking at positive -- positive open here in europe, at least this prices of half a percent right now. the cac, deck look very little changed. let me quick over quickly to the wcrs screen. you can see currencies moving in relation to the dollar. you can see the most asian currencies are putting up gains, not including the yen, which is key. the ecb jan -- one, tied on, you rupee gaining. down on the lost side, japanese yen, losing after big strength
early last week. you also see the pound and euro down against the dollar. >> mavs, thank you very much. european union ministers meeting in brussels later to discuss brexit negotiating position. the u.k. is threatening to quit unless the block drops its demands -- which could be as high as 100 billion euros. how is the likely to respond to the threat? you can see him say he was learning to walk away, or maybe he's just sitting up at that could possibility -- be a possibility in the future. >> it's pretty strong language from the u.k. side. what you see i think it's just more hardening of the position ahead of the start of the negotiations. for the u.k., you have to remember there in the middle of an election campaign here.
lot of this rhetoric is for domestic consumption mostly. i think we will see a muted reaction from the eu on this. no one is scheduled to speak today specifically. we'll see what happens during the meeting went today here in brussels that is supposed to rubber-stamp the mandate for the talks. that's probably going to see tightening of the eu position on that, but not too much. i think the eu at this point is going to just wait and see what happens in the election, then go forward after that. , could to see you this morning. you've got some qualified -- people u.k. zynga could be 5 billion euros, some meta-hundred billion euros, everything else in between. thelikely is it to be at upper and -- where does all this come from, where will be the defining fact of what this deal is? there's a lot of things
are going to this. this is part of the problem in trying to estimated. one of the things theresa may has said recently is that the past payments that the u.k. has bee into the eu should counted in its favor. this goes against what the eu says. the eu says whatever the country supported the eu in the past is technically eu property and is part of the block. this includes buildings and real estate and everything basically. they you a saying they have to settle the accounts, go and look and see exactly what the u.k. has put into it, but the withations of the eu are the u.k., then what the u.k. needs to pay towards those obligations going forward. it's a messy calculation that they have here. eu has eased its stance a little bit, saying that they don't make to have a definitive figure before they move on and
negotiations, they just need to agree on the methodology of getting to that figure. the methodology itself is pretty messy. >> yeah, they just have to agree on that, sounds -- let's talk about something else that should be simple as well but has not proven to be. that's greece. the euro-area finance is gathering in brussels. this is in them -- another part of the agenda brussels then. >> right, a very busy day here in brussels. ministers are going to be meeting, trying to reach a deal in order to give greece the latest tranche of its bailout fund. the chances at this point -- the eu officials are telling us it's 50-50. looks like what we can anticipate at the leases a meeting going listen to the knights again. >> those late letters -- we're good at that. jones hayden joins us from brussels. the next, when you hear what joe
said -- setting up for the stall of the brexit negotiations -- we haven't even begun. , your focus too much on the nuances of movement in currencies. it is going to be a bumpy ride. that has manifested in the currency. 130, wepicked up at have volatility. this is one month volatility, it's rising up the six data row. breaking at the 50 day moving average. when you guys and girls to brexit, how do you look at the prism? the the currency, equity, or through what the prospectus of walking away with no deal? >> for sure, it's a source of volatility. when we tend to think about brexit or anything come as we like to have anchors, the economics, then volatility sources of opportunities to get
to the anchors. with respect to the pound and currency, we think it was a currency that was trading cheap, so we like to being in the long we find that when there is volatility, and this is stalling -- again a good opportunity to consider come in particular against the euro, but frankly also against the u.s. dollar. we are heading towards again 130 or above, for the next few months. >> i know you like to look at investment through long-term trends, super trends as you describe them. do any of your super trends tap into the brexit story? we've heard a lot and the u.k. but what the parties would do with various companies -- the labour party wanting to re-nationalized some assets, conservative party suggesting there might be more protection or scrutiny and foreign takeover, does that -- >> we think the political change
that is happening worldwide, at least in industrialized countries will put emphasis on national champions. with think it's all about reading jobs at home. everybody doing that -- putting more effort into the domestic economy. that puts a number of sectors -- in some countries it will be more on the construction side, industrials. and others like europe, health care, you can think of one of those. so national champions -- defense, we arty have seen a bit . then an emerging markets, they be investing in their own consumers. >> you mentioned defense. think aas back -- i great deal of what happened over the weekend, what would happen with helicopter berlin -- defense contractors in the united states of america. this commitment by nato countries -- 2% of gdp of their defense, this is
boeing, general dynamics -- disposable to look at it. a big focus will defense before you? >> it will be part of the world over the couple of common next years. talking about a nato currency -- countries at the moment -- only three of those nato countries are satisfying the criteria the u.k. -- u.s. and poland, rest is far beyond, below that. so we think even european defense is likely to pick up our contracts. >> and the u.k. were the tech about national champions, does this mean energy companies -- protected from current takeover -- what is this main? >> in the u.k. there certainly part of that defense for sure. then also spent the u.k. are concerned, retail sector -- just having consumers's what are the things that the government will
have to ensure. >> think is so much for joining us this morning. thank you. defense spending was topical saudi arabia. up next, jpmorgan ceo talks regulation under president trump. we will bring you are exclusive interview. >> the trump administration wants to do you regulate certain things. business relations have been holding back -- going by certain polls in these countries, not just jpmorgan. it's important -- i'm still optimistic you'll have regulatory reform. after years of regulations, it makes sense. , it makescratic sense sense. we will look at what was done, what can be done better. ♪
>> the art of the deal, donald trump takes on his inaugural trip abroad, a bonanza of a multibillion dollar contracts and saudi arabia. >> i can't imagine another business -- is good for the united states. >> all aboard. u.s. oil rallies -- a saudi arabia set producers back a nine-month extension for the opec output reduction plan. >> everybody wants an extension. we realize we have a not cheap -- achieved our objective. >> jpmorgan ceo says, he is still optimistic about the global economy. he speaks exclusively to
