fewl also cover the next hours. for some breaking economic data. let's go to abigail doolittle. aigail: we are looking at pretty nice beat for the month of june, the index came in at 57.8 versus the survey at 55.3. above the month of may at 54.9. anything above 50 tells us the economy is growing, so this is a pretty good print for the month of june. on the average, not too much of an influence. we were looking at gains ahead of that number. the dow and s&p up half a percent. the nasdaq have been up about .6%. the other averages less. now we have the nasdaq trading lower but still we have strength
10:01 am
after weekly declines are all three major averages last week, especially the nasdaq. had been down 2%, the worst week of the year. let's look at some of the more breaking data coming out. june,les for the month of gm, ford, toyota, nice rallies here for the three big carmakers here in the u.s. outside of gm, we had beats with light vehicle sales. general motors missed but it seems the optimism around the second half are helping shares. tesla higher by 2% after elon musk said the company received -- notl for the model 3 approval but regulatory requirements were met for production. they expect the first model three to be produced this friday. worth noting, the stock up 69% , and not a sell the
10:02 am
news event. investors are buying this. now let's take a look at oil, row, it'says in a since last year. the supply glut fears erased right now. perhaps an interesting trading thing going on. if you look at the bloomberg, this is the one-your chart showing the moving range for oil. the blue line in the middle is the 33-day moving average. this comes from a trader who used to trade off of this. after it bounced off of the green line, 10% below the moving average. now we have a oil hitting the 33-day moving average. interesting to see if it will pop higher, or if it goes back lower into that range. mark: what a difference a week
10:03 am
makes, a month makes, and a quarter makes. 600 friday fell. today we are up two new quarter, newmont. rising for the first day in five after the worst week since november. biggest monthly drop since june last year post-brexit. first quarterly dropnewmont in . new quarter, new sense of feeling out there by basic resources, banks, autos. that's what's happening on the headline. from the u.k. showing manufacturing slowing more than forecast in june, uncertainty hitting the man, raising doubts about the outlook for the economy in the second half. fellasing managers index to a three-month low, 54.3, down from a revised 53.6.
10:04 am
adding to evidence of the inconclusive election we had in june, the start of brexit talks weighing on companies, how some could strengthen rates given the comments from mark carney. this is sterling, falling for the first day in nine versus the dollar after the longest winning streak in five years. int enjoyed its best quarter two years, rising 3.8% in the second quarter. strategists are not rushing to revise their forecasts. goldman sachs sticking to its call of sterling. hsbc still sees a depreciation by december. foran year-end forecast is $1.27. the ftse finishing last quarter
10:05 am
weaker after reaching that record on may 26. jpmorgan says investors hung up on brexit may be missing out on a buying opportunity in the stock market, pointing to the ftse looking attractive when you look at the p/e ratio adjusted for inflation over the last 10 years. jpmorgan saying the ftse is attractive. vonnie: certainly is a lot lower than it was. maybe a holiday shortened trading week in the u.s. but we have plenty of events and data to assess. we just had the latest manufacturing data. wednesday, we get the june fomc minutes. friday, nonfarm payroll reports. joining us now is a former u.k. economist and he is part of economists for brexit. we will get to that and a minute, but first i want to ask you about u.s. rates. we had a big move last week, a pivot by major central banks
10:06 am
around the world, in the opinion of strategists. do you see a change in central bank thinking, and if so, work for the 10-year yield treasury end up? >> you are right to draw attention to this because it is a theme for investors. last week, the ecb central banking for him was very much interested, this could be an inflection point in terms of monetary policy going forward. bankw the european central hinting that it may well retreat from its qe program. strategists are talking about that. qe program may come to an end at the end of next year, may start to see further tapering as soon as october. we also saw an interesting u-turn from the bank of england where the governor mark carney rateslking about interest
10:07 am
, did an about-face, allowed for the withdrawal of stimulus. the fed has been on a slight tightening monetary stance but it is now looking like it is no longer data dependent, which is interesting. certainly more focus on the fed looking to unwind its balance sheet before the end of the year. vonnie: i'm going to push you on what you mean by no longer data dependent and with the 10-year at 2.3% today, albeit a letter trading day, could that move higher by years end? the key technical level bond strategist will be looking at is 2.6% on a 10-year yield. you'll recall previously that was regarded as a tipping point, if you like. we got up to take points -- 2.6 and then retreated from that. what will be important if we
10:08 am
break that level, some evidence that market-based inflation expectations are starting to turn around. one of the interesting things is inflation expectations have been declining, we have seen the inflation gauge fall back to 4.4%. that's an important indication. even with the recovery in oil over the reported on last eight sessions, it's not been enough to lift inflation expectations, so the fed is essentially tightening into a situation where the data is mixed, we had some ism data today. the economic surprise index that we all look at on bloomberg is at its lows for the year. inflation expectations are low. fed tousual for the think about tightening policy against that sort of background. the economic surprise index, it gives me the opportunity to look at the equivalent in the u.k..
10:09 am
our down to levels that we saw leading up to the post brexit vote that year. how do you read the economy given these hawkish comments from carney, given this divide we are seeing within the mpc right now? is now the time to raise rates, take back some of that emergency? neil: this is an interesting debate. , in theinteresting aftermath of the recent elections, there is political uncertainty, uncertainty over the future direction of the current government, possibility of a change in tax regime, increases in borrowing. those things are what is very different from what we saw in the aftermath of the brexit referendum. abovek. pmi data is still last year -- it is still above last summer's levels.
10:10 am
i think we have moved on in terms of the u.k. economic outlook. there is no doubt the economy is slowing. the political uncertainty has a lot to do with that. consumer spending slowdown, savings rates at the lowest level in 50 years. evidence in the pmi data. certainly in the months ahead it will be difficult. yet, we are seeing the bank of theand, a minority on committee thinking about withdrawing stimulus. the big difference tween the u.k. and the u.s. is that inflation rates in the u.k. is much higher because of the exchange rates. that is a potential issue. vonnie: you have been listening to neil mackinnon. we will return to him in a moment. first, let's get some first word
10:11 am
news with emma chandra. president trump says he will be making phone calls to the leaders of germany, france, and italy today. yesterday he's book with the chinese president and japan's prime minister. the focus of both of those calls was north korea's nuclear weapons. the administration has said china needs to do more to rein in north korea. in germany, at least 18 people were killed when a bus carrying a senior citizens group rammed into a truck and burst into flames. police say another 30 people were injured. bavariadent happened in there the border with the czech republic. qatar has offered their formal response to saudi arabia cutting off diplomatic links. made 13 demands including cutting back ties with iran and shutting down the al jazeera television network. no word if cut her has agreed. in japan, a setback for shinzo

10:13 am
neil: that's a good question. the program would suggest that the economy is slowing. is the bank of england making a mistake? was it too hasty last summer in trying the kitchen sink? should it have raised interest rates earlier further down the road? one of the things last week that the bank of england announced was measures to control the growth in consumer credit. there are these challenges for the bank of england, high inflation, some indication of us long economy. that makes it very difficult as to how they can tighten policy. that is an issue for all the major central banks. we have talked about the fed, economic picture is mixed. inflation is lower. pulling back a bit. debate amongst investors and economists as to whether the fed is making a

oil is gaining a straight days, the longest streak since december. here to discuss the path of crude and more is a senior strategist with ii trading. bill, you say this short squeeze is not done yet. not done yet. last week we saw a marginal increase in crude oil but we also saw a record short position in all four major petroleum contracts combined. the shorts are still going to get squeezed. think we can think we can run t dollars. aside from that we had some small fundamental [no audio] maybe the tropical storm had something to do with that. we also had rick falloff for the first time in 24 weeks. this will be critical when we get to the oil data. will it stop the rally, kenneth extend the rally?
10:18 am
critical time this week. not as many on the floor of the cme as her typically would be. is there a way to take advantage of that given that rates are moving higher? bill: right now, a lot of data will be coming throughout the week. even though we have a holiday tomorrow, there are holiday hours, and we have to focus on what the week will bring. manufacturing data from ism beat expectations. minutesmployment, fed and then the ism nonmanufacturing, and then payroll next friday. so we have a huge week. last week when we saw with currencies, we are stunned to see a shift in central bank expectations. does that continue? saw i feel a lot of what we in currencies is overdone due to the poor u.s. data we been getting. when it comes to the data this week, do we beat the expectations? before, we started

10:23 am
for the most affordable car yet, the model 3. let's go to jamie butters in detroit. is this a giveback for last months dismal figures? jamie: it still may be a down month over all the declines we are seeing are pretty substantial from gm, ford, fiat chrysler, but not as bad as anticipated. as you see the reaction in the markets, even gm, which had the big mess, their shares are up, too. what investors are liking is a little bit of discipline on incentives, not eating into their margins, and especially the mix shift. the shift of light trucks and suvs, that is where automakers make their money, especially u.s. automakers. that is the overriding theme of the sales, why investors are so bullish today. u.s. hearing from ford's
10:24 am
sales chief, says the industry has he can and it is not likely to top last year. is that a view held by all of their peers? jamie: absolutely. the big issue is are we going to be able to stay at a pretty high level? record, 17.6 million. can we say around 16.5, 17 million, with a heavy truck mix, that will be profitable and healthy. or are we starting toward a traditional cyclical downturn that will take three or 4 million units out of sales and really put everyone's profits under pressure? this year, things look pretty good. the question is what is your view next year and the year after. will we have a recession, will interest rates rise so much it will destroy everyone's profitability and send them into contraction? vonnie: the other thing automakers are watching closely twitter because
10:25 am
he posted that the first model 3's will be available friday. 20,000 by december. is that possible? jamie: we will see. this is great news for investors. when elon musk first-order to talk about the model 3, saying this would be his mass-market car, would be in the second half of 2017, a lot of people thought maybe they will make one in december. then he said july 1 is our goal but it's really a stretch goal. here we are in the first week of july and the start of production is right around the corner. tesla has had a history of products that backs, especially manufacturing. it's very challenging, as he has announced. making cars is really hard. maybe they are learning to do it better. they have prioritized the simpler build, two wheel drive before all-wheel-drive, trying to get production going. sounds like he is making some

optimistic noises, and that has to encourage investors who are long on tesla. mark: how big is this car going to be? 370 5000n, tesla said people have placed a $1000 deposit. any idea of the potential figures? jamie: he is aiming to make 500,000 by next year. if they can do that, even spread over the world, that is progress for the company. vonnie: jamie butters, thank you. ofk: still ahead, the rescue been a tow. looming decisions on monte paschi. withe live in rome next the head of italy's banking association. this is bloomberg. ♪ these days families want to be connected 24/7.

sabatini. he is the chairman of the european banking federation. thank you for joining us. it is been a week or so since the unwind of those two banks. what is your assessment of the deal? giovanni: good afternoon, mark. deal of all, i think the that the italian government was able to reach with the european institution after the -- is marking the a turning point for the entire italian banking sector. coupledrly liquidation with the green light on the paschiion of the monte
10:33 am
will remove the dark clouds hanging over the horizon of the italian banking sector, as it has been a clearly -- as it has been grilli demonstrated by bullish reaction of americans in the recent days. italian banking index is up more than 2.5%. i think this is an important agreement, which is within the new rules. also, i think it is important to european that the military framework is able to deal with complex, and difference situations -- complex and difficult situations. as it has been pointed out by they needhi,
10:34 am
different policy measures to minimize the impact of the real economy. i think in the end -- mark: you say that this deal marks a turning point for the italian banking industry. does that mean there won't be any more banks needing -- in italy? giovanni: this is a question you should ask supervisors, either european our national supervisors. banking industry has not privileged that information. the minister of finance for the bank of italy, i think after the solution of the three troubled banks, there will be no need for additional state intervention. mark: you say it is a turning
10:35 am
point for the industry. let's dig deeper. -- for- is it nonperforming loans. turning point when it comes to eliminating nonperforming loans? that the well, i think solution of the two banks in the monte paschi will remove something like 50 billion euros of gross, nonperforming loans. bringing down the amount, the total amount of nonperforming loans. net,ould focus on nonperforming loans. nominal value netted. this is the real exposure of the
10:36 am
banks. signs ineing positive all,ast years, first of inflowsial -- new net is increasing, going back to precrisis levels. this is implying that the stock of nonperforming loans is decreasing. general economic situation of italy is improving. growing at a lower pace with respect to other european countries, but is growing. for thepositive also credit quality, which is improving. so, according to our estimates, operationsnsidering
10:37 am
is a massive sales for nonperforming loans for the next two or three years, the ratio will return well below 10% and the italian banking sector. this,the criticism of this wind down we will call it, it spreads the cost of failure onto taxpayers rather than the banking system. so, does thatng damage the credibility of the eurozone banking union? well, first of all, about the cost of the deal. the italian government has committed up to 7 billion euros. but this is a commitment, not the costs of the deal. be cost of liquidation will computed at the end of the liquidation process once the
10:38 am
asset management company, owned by the treasury, will complete the work of -- of working out and selling the assets that have not been transferred to the bank. we are confident that, in the end, the cost of the liquidation it ise minimal, and possible that it will turn into a profit. the liquidation is a procedure that is coparent with -- is coherent with the european framework. co-communication has been very clearly stated by the commissioner in his public statement.
10:39 am
i think this measure, on the one hand, is complying with general principles that troubled banks should exit the market. and this is an exit be performed in an orderly manner with the help of the italian state. i think that -- mark: if i can ask you one final question, given your glass half full view of the italian banking industry, do you feel it is ready for further consolidation now? do you think we will see further consolidation now among the popularity banks. giovanni: first of all, you have to consider that complying the s willal loans, the bank merge into major banking groups by the end of the year.
10:40 am
by the end of this year, we will probably end up with less than 140 banks, or banking groups active in italy. in thegress consolidation of the sector is already in place. we cannot exclude additional consolidation, but i think that also, consolidation at the european level could be welcomed. , theeal issue, i think regulatory framework, which is always uncertain and unstable. we have new rules issued almost every day, that is not helping banks in defining their strategy. at the moment where profitability is the major issue, and therefore, both of the banks should focus more on business than compliance. sabatini, thank you so
