>> ok. let's take a look at how tokyo is trading just ahead of the open. opene nikkei, a lower their in japan. down 1/10 of 1%. no supplies given the softer close we had. this is daybreak asia. made headlines at the annual developer conference. there was plenty of talk about augmented reality or ar. they rolled out a kit for augmented reality in its apps. let's bring in sergon. he joins us live from tokyo. great to see you.
talk to me about the significance of apple joining the ar industry. surged to the top? has a big apple advantage over the other companies out there. apple controls the camera, they control the operating system. the control the distribution. they have control over the entire stack. this is a level of control the other companies don't have when it comes to ar. apple really changed the game overnight. a bit of ancome overnight success. so far it is still quite new. we have only been familiar with things like pokémon go.
is there a broader use of this technology? is it going to be different than the vr path that we have seen? , for gamesook at vr and other applications, it's been a disappointment at this time. everybody is looking at the next big thing. a lot of people are betting on ar to be that next thing. you talk i think about two main segments, games and non-games. you mentioned pokémon go. that was the first time for many consumers they realized the devices they were having in their pockets for a long time now are capable of this technology. with apple rolling out ar kits a few days ago this adoption will only accelerate. the ar kit appears to be very developer friendly.
it is already out of beta. apple baked into other software. so far at this early point in time they have done a good job in positioning themselves in the ar field for the next month and maybe even years. >> what has the response been for these developers? we saw the capabilities of what it can do. what are they saying now as a potential market opportunity? japan, they have one of the biggest gaming markets on the planet especially when it comes to mobile games. interestingly japan has always been on the forefront of virtual-reality. for the last two or three years. there's a good chance that this
might repeat itself with ar because the competition and mobile game front etc. has also been japan. a lot of game developers are looking at ar to be the next platform in japan but also outside of japan because it levels the playing field for many game developers. 50 mobile games. we have a bunch of scale developers in the country that could and will make use of apple's ar tech going forward. >> what do you think took apple so long? it's been around for a wild. google is a big competitor here. why did it take so long? neededbig reason was ar the pokémon go moment. map ande put ar on the
in the minds of many consumers. it was a wake-up call for companies, for the business side. ar as a technology is not simple. it is complex. this is the reason why apple is trying to make it as easy as possible for developers to create an ar experience. >> we know what pokémon go was. we know the potential of that. what is most exciting to you that we could apply ar into our practical lives? >> so i think we will see more games that utilize ar. games, that ar people were expecting to come after pokémon go, it didn't really come. applek that ar kit from
is going to pave the way for more ar-based games. i think that you will see much .ore experiences using ar people are talking things like coming out of the train station, you don't know which buildings you have a meeting at, instead of looking at the map and trying to see where you are you hold of the camera and the camera shows you which building you have to go to. i think you will see more applications like this going forward. >> all of this stuff takes a while. then suddenly everyone adopts it. earlier ased google the biggest competitor here. what are we likely to see from them? >> google has already its own augmented reality platform called tango. the problem is that tango is
rangenabled for a limited of android devices. apple did one big thing with their ar kit platform. they enabled it for pretty much all of the ios devices out there. it is a completely different approach. iphones going after the out there, where google has a limited approach to ar so far. i think that google is a competitor. another is snapchat. ar.her big company using the most recent is probably instagram and facebook is preparing a push into alternate reality. they have a studio they make available -- available. it is a big rush at the moment.
that could soon change at any time. >> one of the interesting things, china was the bogeyman in 2016 in the campaign. following one visit to mar-a-lago the president and xi jinping seem to be best buddies. this is i think one of the things that has caused geopolitics. people,ot macro disclosure and caviar as i always do -- this policy could change tomorrow. that has a lot of people uncertain. you had this currency manipulator. you had trade problems. the administration is focused on trade. now china is our best friend in the western pacific. so, i don't know.
clearly people are focused on north korea. the south china sea is still being developed by china. you have the chinese currency stabilizing. which probably is a good thing. we will have to see. this is an administration that seems to make it up as they go along. what the policy is going to be six months or a year from now, i have no idea. >> i don't know that a trade war with china -- anything that will bring tariffs is a dumb idea. , thatfree trade guy but will extend beyond china. that will extend to our partners in north america, europe, we seem to be picking lots of fights these days. china seems to be, we seem to be
concerning a lot of trade partners. tariffsal, a rise in would have to be bad news i think. >> that was scarlet fu and joe with jiml's interview chanos. certainly a wide-ranging one. he says he has plenty of their shorts in the u.s.. he's finding a lot of opportunities. i don't know how good it is for the bulls here. >> given where the equity markets have been there is an opportunity for short-sellers to china wave. not just in but across the world. let's get to sophie to see -- let's -- the market opens in tokyo and sydney. we have seen caution leading up to the big thursday events. well as. election as
what happened with inflation? where is it? live are coming to you from headquarters. here and wer 8:00 inflation andr are not finding it here in the united states. you see the treasury rally and the dollar falling. ande is firmer footing nobody is talk about a major correction of the market. ecb was not expecting too much, what they think that this will take a position. we do not know what will come out of the james comey testimony
and we could see some potential fireworks. that around the corner, we see the risk assessment. way to see this at the gate and the pressure with the relief drop oner the big tuesday and investors are playing catch-up and the cost is falling. the aussie dollar breaks and it stood pat and we are waiting on rbiupdate and we have the to announce here.
here and it is water with the oversupply concerns and we are andng the stockpile decline i will show you this trend we and i will pull up this with gold at a seven-month high and thisd break out of a slump and and gold is climbing china is ramping up gold. rally andd up the the is as they are set for
stabilization and we will get the latest on the reserve and census uptick. thisdeclined and there is end we are waiting to hear about and we are putting hedge fund managers on notice. >> thank you for letting us know about how things are shaping up. increasing the holding of government debt and they say treasuries are becoming more
the president faces court debates on whether he took illegal financing in the campaign and could lose the mandate. he has been under rising pressure after the corruption allegations of last month. more economists unexpected raising and the benchmark kobe cap steady. joinedoday, we will be after the r.b.i. decision. news 24 hours a day in
more than 120 countries. >> thank you. is pouringed source fuel into the bond market rally. to get more ready treasuries? china and you for remember that they were doing this to boost the currency. and you see athis white line that is the chinese right,s and, at the far the chinese were selling bonds
and you can see that there are holding a little less and you can see how it shifted. we know what they were buying as part of their operation and they are now saying it is time to get some of the bonds back. thisct, you can see reflected with the chinese you talk about this more globalized currents see this is the 10 year to thend you get down it is no wonder
the chinese say they should get sovereign debt. we learned that china increased the holdings and that is the shiftnd is definitely a from one side to another. >> there is a big treasure rally -- treasury rally and there was and thenflation numbers is quickly back breakdownn see the and, if you are a tech nation,
i've assure you are watching that closely. put upance sheet could >>pressure and -- and one that is a great way to ask our next guest about the situation. -- is a non-executive think that china may get more treasuries? >> sure. if you purchase treasuries, you and there isrket another buyer in the market and i think that an amp orton point here is that china must feel
more comfortable about the economy and the support needed and i think there is a number out to confirm that and that is a very different story with the economy in china than what we is abeen reading and there fair amount of support that says that this will happen in the economic growth in china. >> it is great to have you. this all theith the and they engineer what is the chance misstep?icy
>> they don't want that to change. and therecrucial time dynamics that of and thereally relate situation in the south china sea with north korea, china has inherited or assumes the dominant position in asia and situation in north say, what does that have to do with the chinese on market and it is a whole lot. the currency is declining.
have tracked each other. and theree yield rise but the dollar is following along with the yield. what do you make of this? dollarar as that falling is not a sign of ofength and it is a sign perception of weakness. if you put it into what happened , you can legitimately say that this is a technical correction
doubt that and the dollar seems to be taking a lead from the treasury market. and thehike in june inflation is still soft. >> could there be something else involved? which is the chicken and which is the edge? either directly or thee international confidence in the dollar and i realized what people are expressing and the u.s. dollar should be strong with the strength of the u.s. economy and nation.ed states as a
different tune coming out of washington and their andd be less of an interest you come back to the earlier perceptionhere is a of currencies across asia. dotsu are connecting the on the budget with so many things and there are a lot of people who will pull back on their sense of what the fed is at least there one more increase and you say that the economy is strong enough that the federal reserve needs to move on that path.
more freedom and rates and, to raise people feel of the government is not print it will, should the central bank be? way need signs of strength and the fed could shake in and do that. this will have more after commercial break. we would like to bring to your seention this and you can dives into this and you can become part of the conversation. this is bloomberg.
>> this is daybreak. the final thoughts from new york. thank you for sticking around. you mentioned the fed as a beacon of hope and i guess that a lot of this depends on china and we see the input and the out put dropping sharply and do you this getting pronounced later in the year? critical year and this is going to be good.
it has to be a good environment for the committee and the structure there. i think that there will be a time where this follows and i anticipate the good news on china, to the degree that you thinkntrol that and i most people understand that and they want that. there is the treasury line and the yen is strengthening. does that make the chinese bond market more attractive? risk,you can handle that and itnds on the mandate
has to be very specific. you have the emerging markets mandate. couple of days a trips. expensive and we have mandates for that part of the world and we were getting the japanese treasuries relative to the u.s. and the japanese people are getting treasuries and hedging, depending on the cost. >> thank you for joining us. also, thank you to kathleen hays for joining us. towards thursday with much more ahead and a
