first meeting with trump on friday. off withick things trade first of all. what is he hoping to achieve? >> not discussing trade. of thes to keep trade agenda and would prefer to talk about strategic issues such as north korea. he doesn't like that 2012 free-trade pact. >> he has called it a horrible deal, one-way street, a job killer. rishaad: he doesn't like any deal. his leasts is one of favorite, negotiated by the obama administration. rishaad: that will do it, won't it? >> he has said that korea's trade surplus with the u.s. has increased over the years since the trade guilt took effect, and so it is unfair to the u.s., according to him, so he would like to renegotiate and revisit this agreement. rishaad: how does he view it
9:41 pm
though when you look at it through his eyes, moon? >> the weight moon and other koreans look at it is just looking at the trade surplus is not looking at the whole picture. you need to look at the amount of investment koreans have made into the u.s., and that is at a gone upso it has considerably since the trade deal took effect. they could point to samsung electronics announcing they are investing in a factory in south carolina, over $300 million, will create 950 new jobs, those are the sorts of deals that the korean say look, this shows the free-trade deal is working. haidi: what are the chances of moon being successful and persuasive? his chances of keeping trade off the agenda completely are probably not great given the forrtance that trade plays
9:42 pm
president trump and his supporters. it is likely that they will be discussing it. they were not be up to just talk about north korea, i think. haidi: leaving it there, but certainly a highly anticipated visit and huge challenge in particular for the new south korean leader. coming up, is the market too complacent about the possibility of an upside inflation surprise? that is up next. this is bloomberg. ♪

9:45 pm
for two straight quarterly gains. that is what we have at the moment. haidi: all right, rish, watching story.an let's get back to what central banks are doing. felt like a strong signal shipped overnight from the likes of the boe, a decade of easy money and now investors bracing for borrowing costs to head higher. our next guest belize markets are being too complacent about the possibility of an upside inflation surprise. he is the head of dynamic np capital.a banks, #9283, central
9:46 pm
the boe is not on there, but what did you make of the commentary coming through overnight? i thought the weirdest one was from mark carney. >> that's right. if you look at the inflation dynamics, it was a miss on the inflation print, yet mark carney coming out and signaling a rate hike, and that is a message we are getting across the board, ,he ecb obviously, so it inflation is still below target, but that shows the change. about 300 billion dollars a month and asset purchases, and at some point this will have to in. we don't need that extreme monetary policy we needed 5-6 isrs ago, so the question
9:47 pm
how quickly and how much volatility will it create. of your investment themes has been an upside surprise in inflation. i want to bring up this chart #9012, the top segment is weighted annual global cpi, almost wondered 100%. inflation linked bonds rolling over as well. you see what the bond market is doing, second guessing what the fed will do. where does that surprise come from? is it transitory, china, trump coming through? all, it is the role of expectations, so market expectations for inflation is so depressed now that it does not take much improvement in growth to see that expectation being disappointed. runaway need to get
9:48 pm
inflation because expectations are ready so depressed and pessimistic, so a little uptick in activity or inflation, and the u.s., we have had full employment. so a little bit of upside surprises enough to catch the market off guard. when we look at china as well, china and the case for stimulus to be on and off, so they put the brakes on and slowdown commodity prices, but now they are starting to take their foot off the brake again. when you look at headline inflation, it is not a central-bank target, but inflation always lags growth. picks up, real inflation comes through. i think the market is caught up in the oil impact of inflation and ignoring the underlying trend in growth which is on the positive side. rishaad: i want to move on to the markets themselves.
9:49 pm
growth stocks have been a particular favorite, helped to propel markets higher has of late, technology in particular. is this trait done in your view? >> i think so. croke to me looks like one crowded momentum trade. to me looks like one crowded momentum trade. people are just on it and rationalizing their earnings as the case for it, but the growth sector is price for perfection, so it doesn't take much downside surprise to disappoint those long crowds, but if you look at the ratio of growth overvalued and plot that against 10 year bond yields in the u.s., there is a strong correlation. the bond yields have been coming down since 2007 and the value has been under performing growth all the way down. central bankst
9:50 pm
are telling us, we have seen the low end bond yields. it is unlikely bond yields will go to a new low. should quite durable values at the growth. rishaad: if bond yields are up, that will help the banks. you switch to financials? absolutely. financials have been one of the areas of the market that has bondhurt life falling yields and quantitative easing in negative interest rates. from here as the yield kirstie can's -- yield stevens and margins improve, banks and financials are a great place to be. so the rest of the market coming cleaning energy and materials as opposed to just chasing yield are chasing the quality earnings. haidi: we will have to leave it
9:51 pm
there, but it will be very interesting to see and the coming weeks as we lead up to the next round of central-bank meetings if things change substantially for that trajectory to change. thank you so much for that. breaking news crossing the toomberg, vietnam january june gdp numbers coming through, 5.7%. we were looking for five point 5%, building on the previous growth of 5.1%. --are waiting on see quite cpi inflation, a miss, 2.54%, 2.3%, and that slowing from the month of may. getting more on that as it becomes available. coming up, a quick look back at the evolution of the iphone. it has been 10 years since it first hit the shelves. this is bloomberg. ♪
