wanted something that could be seen as a slightly softer brexit in terms of keeping open trade relations and keeping open the border between the north and the republic. we will talk all about that. we have a great guest to talk to us about that. theresa may, focusing in on this d.u.p. meeting, after that mea culpa yesterday, where she took responsibility for the mess that was created around the election. manus, we have seen this tech sell off. it sort of came like a -- a little bit from the blue. this is the technology fund. the ticker on it is xlk. what you saw here was the worst week of outflows in 18 months. that is the money coming fast and serious. rattled by the move on friday

signaled she is willing to have a meeting, as far as brexit is concerned. she is set to meet with the as e d.u.p. today to secure the boat votes needed. she will then go difference to meet with president macron. we are now joined by chris wyllie in the studio, with manus on set. i want to ask you a little bit about this rethink on brexit we are reporting today. she is looking for a national consensus, whatever that might be. are you excited by this idea that we could have a slightly softer brexit, or do you think a softer brexit is another name for a have your cake and eat it wish list the u.k. will never say yes to? >> i think they have cast a pretty clear vote that they would like a softer brexit. last week, as we were moving toward the election, we saw this narrowing in the polls. meanuestion, what would it
if there was a hung parliament? it would mean a much weaker pound, but we were not so sure because we thought people would look to the other side and conclude a softer brexit could be in the cards. i think the markets would like to see that and we certainly see it from the business community. we see unity there, pretty much, as far as there is any unity to be found at the moment. and they are beginning to lobby much more strongly and cohesively than they have in recent months because they feel the door is now open, where it was not before. manus: the other phrases used in the story overnight, i speaking with a national consensus, to that end, looking at what a softer brexit is is a discussion on its own, but to seek a national consensus, what does that take to materially shift this above 1.30 or below 1.25? that is what i want to know in
terms of the movement of the market. >> i think what would get the aund above 1.30 would be reasonably stable conservative government committed to a soft brexit. that is what the market would like to see. unfortunately, there is significant doubt. where it gets really complicated is if you start to think of maybe a labour government, which is no longer inconceivable, which would also probably be a soft brexit. it seems to be the policy in the economic area of europe. but the markets would have to grapple with the fiscal side of things, which is a lot less supportive. national unity, sounds great. no doubt over the weekend that that concept has gained grown. i'm not sure where that consensus really is, because the ironing of the referendum is we never really staffed these variables of brexit at all.
i'm not sure where you would find that consensus. anna: on the fiscal side of things, you mentioned a labour party government is no longer inconceivable in the u.k. even if we don't get one, does it seemed that the debates around austerity have changed? overnight have been talking about how inflation is on the rise and because of the voting public seemingly turning against austerity policy, we could see more borrowing, and more gilt issuance from the u.k. government and that could add two reasons not to buy gilts now. what do you make of the austerity debate now, in the context of the vote we saw thursday night? a austerity is probably sound nd back lasted when we initially we the brexit results, felt that at the time, that we had seen the high tide of
austerity and we started to get a movement, in terms of the conservative agenda. now that has been given an almighty shove in the back. now, we are going to see a lot less austerity and more generous fiscal policy. because the conservatives were definitely con off guard during the election campaign by this ve ry ambitious manifesto from the labour party, certainly ambitious in terms of spending. they were not able to neutralize it. conservatives will probably dawn a few of those clothes. manus: the emperor would need to find some clothes, some with a at the moment. the eu has plans to force the relocation of euro clearing. firms that are deemed to be systemically important to the eu
financial system could be required to accept oversight and move. this is the latest european maneuvering. the kite was flown just a month ago. this could raise clearing costs by as much as 20%. this is a strong bargaining chip. it is a very political bargaining chip for the market. >> yes, it is. you mean it is a strong bargaining chip -- manus: it is a bargaining chip for the europeans. >> this has been knocking around, it is one of the first things people thought of when they contemplated brexit. because we are getting close to the actual negotiation's, it is coming to fruition. i think it is highly likely. it will be hard for the u.k. to retain that role in clearing, which we have had up until now. they will be clear employment implications for the city. and yeah, i think there's not
much the u.k. could do about that right now. what they should probably focus on are other issues surrounding the, which could help to sustain the city's preeminence. this is a lost cause, probably. manus: chris wyllie stays with us, the chief investment officer at connor broadley. u.k. prime minister, well, it is a busy day. she meets the du.u.p. in a bid to shore up her government. the new parliament meets with the election of the commons speaker. the fed starts its two day policy meeting and there is also a rate decision out of argentina. coming up on "daybreak." anna and i discussed tech with our guests. was it a blip, for a sign of a bigger problem? we discuss. this is bloomberg.
you are watching "bloomberg daybreak: europe." i'm anna edwards. manus cranny is in london. we have the markets and the politics covered. the mea culpa of theresa may. that will be followed by the d.u.p. meeting, more on that later in the program. lifted up to speed with what is happening in the world of business with juliette saly. reporter: thank you. three former currency traders in britain who were accused by u.s. prosecutors of conspiring to manipulate markets have reached an agreement to surrender this summer to american officials. jpmorgan, citigroup, and barclays employees have agreed to be arraigned this summer in a manhattan court. the irish government plans to sell shares in irish banks were

about the new french president. sydney was beginning exclusively to rachel chang in shanghai. >> the french market is important. we have a new president. be verythis could positive for the economy in france. start some reforms and bring in some working rules, things like that. that is your bloomberg business flash. manus: thank you. let's talk tech. the global selloff in technology stocks, showing signs of easing. samsung shares edged up overnight after leading declines in asia. tencent holdings, which tumbled 2.5%, also managed to gain. the question is whether the sudden slide was a blip, or represents a more
fundamental crack in the u.s. stock market? was it a moment of distress? we look at the etf's and the flow of money at the start of the show. we saw $737 million disappear last week. those are the worst outflows in 18 months. how do you personify the tech moves? >> certainly an important moment. you have nailed it in saying, is it a blip or something more important, i.e. an inflection point? we have seen this extraordinary leadership from the tech sector in the u.s., and extraordinary valuations on tech stocks. that has worried investors latent they have had a concern about the level of valuation int h the u.s. there is a possibility that a correction here could be a good thing. if it's allied with rallies in
other sectors, big sectors of the stock market -- thinking particularly of the banks and energy sectors, and that has happened in the last few days -- i would say that plays into the benign script. when you see these shifts in the sands of the market, you have to think, is this the canary in the coal mine? is this the first one risk aversion is creeping in? right now, we are seeing other sectors rally as these come down. we will certainly be alert to that possibility. manus: anna? anna: chris, do you worry about the size of some of these tech companies? i get concerned when i see descriptions of the tech selloff we have seen going off, when the
selloff in the nasdaq comes down to five names. and it is not just the u.s. we look at asia, and they are beholden to their big tech stocks, like tencent. >> it speaks to that point i made now just about valuations. so, high valuations lead to big market capitalizations. that means these things have become bigger and bigger components of the index and have led the industry. when you look at some of these individual valuations, they give you pause for thought. and we have been here before. dotmber, 1999 to 2000, the com boom. i don't think we are in that territory, but it is reminiscent of that. that set alarm bells ringing in the minds of investors.
the good news, there are other large sectors which are still on low valuations. even these big individual companies -- that is extraordinary about the tech sector. there are big companies, but there are other sectors that also have big companies, like energy and the banks. they are quite lowly valued and they can rally and offset what is going on in tech. then we have what we call a washing machine market, when we rotate from one market to another. as i said, you have got to be careful here because sometimes this is where it starts. i saw this in march of 2000. it was a different landscape then. actually, many investors did not do as badly because you had the whole value sector of the economy that came to life between 2000 and 2002. there is always that silver lining to the cloud. manus: would you spend money on
protections? the touch of the horse, being bolted and it is already gone. this is the option value for anybody out there. that aggressive hiking in protection, buying protection, is that folly or smart? >> protection has been pretty cheap in recent months. volatility has been low. ise problem, if you do that, to spend the money, of course, but you have that window of opportunity, which you have to nail. you have not only to say that volatility is not going to go up, but then you have to buy protection, and it gets more expensive. then you get back to, how long will this low volatility stay?
♪ dollar-yen trying to find a trajectory. there is a new edition of daybreak reedit you have the tv in addition with anna edwards and myself. it is on your mobile call on bloomberg. the u.k. and the eu failed to agree on a start date for the brexit talk at a meeting in brussels. european officials expressed frustration at the delay of amid

focus on reporters. a professor of politics at the university of liverpool joins us on the phone. great to have you on the program. for the market perspective, the key question is what will the du p do around brexit, how much will they soften the on arvative stance you >> pre-brexit party, they want the u.k. to leave the european union. they are allied with the conservatives. because they are based in northern ireland and northern ,reland does a lot of trade they are the single recipient wants a soft brexit. hardthey don't want is a order in which they would have customs checks. a crossd have to have
of the border because the tariffs on the skids. what the du be an conservative government wants is access to amazing ofion, it is the cake and to eat it. they want the benefits of the european market without actually being a member formally of that market because the u.k. government has ruled out membership of the eu market as well as the eu itself. is a great concept of what a soft brexit actually is. what do you think the du p strongest card is when they sit with theresa may today? what do you think their strongest bargaining chip is? thehe dup have got all of bargaining chips. the conservatives are friendless otherwise.
theresa may has only one choice of ally and they know that and will expectthe du p millions of pounds to go to the pounds sterling into islands into the structure projects there. expect the du p to squeeze theresa may in terms of funding northern ireland. it is important to stretch that and that is why this commonality -- you have three decades there. dividing northern ireland and the irish republic would potentially be utterly disastrous to one thing that could endanger northern ireland. all sides, whether it be the irish government, and the european union, will be anxious of thegate the effects
island. anna: what could happen under the belfast agreement, but we stick to the good friday the secretaryn could be from a party that had been in some kind of loose arrangement, one of parties. does this mean they are no longer independent? do we need to see some kind of impartial arbitrator in this measures? impossible tot conceive the government as an honest rubber. the leader of the community in northern ireland, the british government is not neutral. the clue is in the title. that's obviously a worry for
nationalists in northern ireland. ireland ise northern in effect suspended. secondly, brexit undermines aspects of the agreement. predicated upon northern ireland and the irish republican -- republican being in the european union. it was signed way back in 1998. frankly, a du p deal makes things that much more difficult. am not saying it is dead but trouble -- it is in deep trouble. negotiationant since i was the age of one.
do you expect a deal today? it is not the style to pop again, have a chat, and do a deal. they want to squeeze it. this is their political moment in the sun. dup will squeeze and squeeze and squeeze. the conservatives will never have seen anything like this. very very tough negotiators. they know what they want and they are going to get it. fact drinking and eight political free bar. dp was not to give the conservatives their support. and even then, the deal we're
talking about this that the du p will back conservatives only off key votes. it would only need a key conservative rebels to bring the whole show down. a stable minority british government. the gop say they will do something, they tended to deliver you once the deal is done, at least we can reasonably expect it to stick for a wild. we might have to find a nonalcohol based metaphor. what are the demands they are going to make in terms of the investment in ireland? where's that likely to be targeted? is it going to focus on a corporation tax reduction or something? any specifics? >> the du p laid out what it wanted in two dozen 15 with the expectation for a, parliament. 2017 the view be is
already laid out. cuts corporation taxes in ireland to make the economy more competitive. must that is coming anyway. is to getu p want more people to northern ireland for the tourism industry. normally for schools, hospitals, normally to raise education amongst the working class. du p voters who tend to underperform educationally. of this asll resent a huge massive set of economic goodies. the du p place of the economic agenda. that is where it becomes controversial and the shopping list could include amnesty for
british soldiers. that will be massively contentious. could improve operating rights and northern ireland. i don't think that will be anywhere near the shopping list. the primary shopping list will be economic. the economy is still -- a lack of private sector in it northern ireland. this gives the du p the best chance to publicize private sector investments. manus: thank you very much. anddu p will be drinking eight political free bar. -- in a political free bar. jonathan, professor of politics at the university of liverpool. let's talk about the other big agenda which is the federal reserve. consumerork fed's
inflation at a record low in may. 2.47% in threeng years time. this fits above the lowest level ever recorded in the four year and it is on the for your role. it is only four years old. traumatized by 2.46%. the expectation of inflation in two years time. the fed have got to acknowledge that they are on shifty ground in terms of their statement tomorrow. expectations are fading. >> yes, right, ok, that is true. we are in this topsy-turvy world where inflation is good. which is why i paused for a moment there.
you expectations is getting lower. exactly. raises pressure to interest rates as a result of that and by extension also we want slightly higher interest rates as a sign of health and reflation so the economy is finding its true footing. absolutely. i think we are still -- the economic statistics of the moment, in a reasonably good place. when we were a few years ago when we were in qfii, i will never get out of that. that has not happened. we have to raise interest rates when they have. they're going to have more trouble to reduce the balance sheet. it -- we will see. we have got if you rises in the bag. i think they're getting close to a point where he could see quite a loft -- a lot.
one or two to sustain credibility. 2.5% i think. it reads really well right now. it is almost there, goldilocks. you want a bit of inflation but it is not a snowball effect. i think the fed are going to be pretty happy. where does that leave the further out expectations? is one of them a rate rise and one a conversation about the balance sheet? >> the market is expected a progression in interest rates going into next year. them, the sport that script. my suspicion is i think they are getting to a midterm votto.
to raise interest rates. i think this is really about all the way through monetary policy. i think at this point, these are not normal interest rates. they are feeling a little bit more normal. they will want to turn some attention to moderating the fed balance sheet. there will be a subtle shift in terms of the emphasis of monetary policy. i don't think they will be to worried from here. manus: 10 year is 2.21%. i love this line from bank of america. the bond market has a moment -- manic depressive view of policy after june. that is more or less what you see and then you have september
and december. what do think of 2.21% is manically depressed in terms of yield and where that could go to on the trajectory you have just outlined? >> it is an interesting situation and a bit of a conundrum in this. there are they are raising short-term interest rates. you would expect the markets to set higher long-term interest rates. it is not really happening. something investors do not like to see, a yield curve to the policy mistake. i wonder whether or not bond markets are really pricing u.s. growth or whether what is happening is that we have continuing globally to anchor because the european central bank is buying european bunds. less distorting the price of bond yields. if and when we need the ecb
ringing in a qe -- reigning in qe. i think you will see market price more realistically. manus: begin to deliver differences. thank you so much. qe. if you are a bloomberg customer you can watch the show on tv ,go. there is a producer done . thanks anna. i think she has taken very well to westminster. i miss her in the studio. ecb thinks thee euro inflation is becoming less reliant on tv. qe. this is bloomberg. ♪
anna: welcome back. this is "bloomberg daybreak: europe" theresa may meets the du p a later after the miracle -- it is up to her to get the conservative party out of the mess she created yesterday. that is the politics. let me talk about the markets. in business flash with juliette saly former currency traders in britain were accused by u.s. prosecutors have conspiring to manipulate markets have reached an agreement to surrender the sum of two american officials. the irish government plans to sell shares in nationalized --sh francs for between 3.49
a market capitalization of london's largest ipo this year. the final price will be announced around june 23, with h-shares starting unconditional trading on the allotted and irish talk exchanges around four days later. manus -- let's talk about what is going on in the ecb. let's get to that. european central bank stimulus according to the ecb executive board member. he spoke exclusively to francine to an exiting slowly from the bond buying program. >> the discussion was very about the rise in the economy, the stock of the progress that will , and that is a
discussion that will happen again and again. that is going to continue. anna: speaking to francine chris miley still with with manus.udio what is your timeline for the ecb and how it exits its stimulus. chris: probably next year sometime we are going to start to see some action. it is quite interesting to see that report. it sounds to me as if the ecb is flying a bit of a kite. on the one hand they are saying the academy is less dependent on the ecb buying bonds, but on the other we are saying it is too early to discuss. i think that means they are flying a kite to they want to
see how markets respond. bestme point in the civil 6-12 months, the ecb will have to get off events and start to frame something in terms of policy and the markets are awaiting to hear. when we going to get that tapering? you stabilize interest rates and you start to address qe and and then and only then you start to take about raising interest rates. it feels to me they are inching towards that point. get out of europe at the moment, there is a much stronger case to be made on steadier ground but not necessarily study ground just yet. if you take the yellow line on this chart it is the bloomberg intelligence super court.
that is highlighted in the yellow. that has not budged a square inch. to europeanrush equities, the money flowing into european equities, the ability to reduce prices is not translated yes. how did that translate into the equity story? >> the markets have been looking at a lot of the ghetto. he surveyed data out of europe has been very good. record ofery good seeing through to the hard data. a bigs certainly been thing fueling the stock market. particularly the fast the that the oil prices have come off the
boil. right now the ecb once to see a reasonably firm foundation. feedt necessarily inflation, that is a good thing. we don't want to the other headache which is how you put the inflation genie back in the bottle. just like in the states it will not stop them moving toward a some normalization of policy. anna: are you still worried about italy? over the weekend they had a disappointing local election performance from their perspective. the imf has raised its forecast. does this worry you? is a wildcard and that has been the case throw the last 6-12 months. we try to stay out of this because theysses are only guesses. think there would be that big shocks aside from potentially an italian election.

theresa may has to go through and we do think that the coalition will he reached. is that thison there is aficult and sweeping mandate that theresa may was looking for. and ais the momentum's stark contrast and it is a pretty safe that. pound we think that the would go lower. this is a buying opportunity. >> we will see what comes.
conversationt the and theresa may is going to have a rethink and a national consensus on brexit. excite you? does it feel like having your cake and eating it? what are your thoughts on this idea? >> there is a party negotiating is amazing to talk about the politics in a stable and positive force that had three regional elections going on and september looks like she will be voted back in. in president was put it back and they suggested a sweeping
change, should the next weekend go according to plan. offelection will be put until next year. the relative strengthening of eurozone withe politics, it misses the fact that this is a strong position in these negotiations. >> that was assisting fleet summed up. andext, getting loose sliding over the coming months. we are looking at the rates next. this is bloomberg.
the international equipment has beaten estimates on the revenue. i am being join now for an exclusive interview on the performance. in of the business is done fits. talk me through the recovery in the united states of america. >> the market is strong and has been for a number of years. they are predominantly operating at full employment. the u.s. economy remains very strong. >> what is the challenge? is it managing the pace of growth? >> the pace of growth is strong and there is over a billion
pounds on capital. issue is getting around the operational challenges of the employment environment and retaining staff and finding high-quality step is a major challenge. you have the wage pressure. you are being squeezed to pay higher wages. >> we are generating good profits and we are rewarding our staff. this is a way to differentiate ourselves and i think this is a great up to. drivenmuch are you being by cyclical factors and how much is this cyclical? this factor.
