week to decide on interest rates. su keenan has what to expect. a busy week on wall street. let's start off with gdp data. >> it is a number widely watched. 2.6% annualized growth rate expected, a pickup from the first half, a lot of that being fueled by consumer spending. that would be an contrast to the beginning of the year. in terms of the big economic reports, durable goods expected to show acceleration. in the middle of the week, economic reports at the end of the week. the fed expected to announce its rate decision wednesday, expected to stand pat. janet yellen caught in a bind with inflation muted in the job market robust, and as a result, expected to make no

driving record levels, especially the s&p. 6164 shows the equity market prices have not: up in a vacuum. fundamentals have played an optimistic role. 12212 month trailing eps at , an all-time high, and 59% above the last cycles peak. a consensus for 12 month eps expectation at 139, also an all-time high. take a look quickly at some of the companies that reported in the past week, a mixed performance. goldman sachs with strong numbers, but the focus was on the weakness in the core unit. ibm the focus was on yet another decline in revenue for the 21st

thank you. investors watching the expected testimony from donald trump junior and jerod kushner this as the whitespeak house says it supports new sanctions on russia for meddling and last year's election. from get the latest washington, d.c. good to see you. we got the fireworks when donald trump junior released those and promisedtings information from the russian government damaging to hillary clinton. are we expecting more surprises this week? >> the only surprise would be if there are not any surprises. this has been an amazing period. one thing we don't expect is to have donald trump jr. or his brother testify publicly at this
stage. it looks like at the very least that jerod kushner is going to key congressional committees behind closed doors, manafort jr. and paul former campaign manager have because theypass are cooperating to talk behind closed doors. they will have to go public at some point. i think we are not quite there yet. trump andis comes as the gop push towards a vote on the health care bill. does it have any chance of success at this point? trump has tweeted numerous times about the need for republicans to get behind the health care plan. he tweeted today that republicans are not helping him enough. senate republicans don't even know which of the two more
versions of the health care plan will be up for a vote this week. it could be a repeal and , certainrepeal only senators on the conservative and moderate and don't like either option. we don't know which day the vote will come, so a lot of uncertainty we have not seen before, and senators such as susan collins saying to her party leader, send this back to committee. let's do this publicly. it is too important to do behind closed doors. yvonne: it certainly is. a shaky time for trump when it comes to the communications department with the promotion of huckabee sanders and anthony scaramucci and the resignation of sean spicer, pretty shocking news on friday. what does this say about the trump administration at this mark? , theis btv 8522
president's job approval falling again. >> think anthony scaramucci is somebody extremely loyal to the president, hasn't always been the case, but coming in as somebody the president thinks can reset the communications office. there has been a lot of debate within the white house about .hould trump continue to tweet how should he operate his communications. i think anthony scaramucci supports what the president is doing, and i'm not sure too much will change. i think we can expect to see the incendiary tweets from the president, so we need to wait and see. yvonne: obviously we will see how he does. thank you. still ahead, st. petersburg
yvonne: we are counting you down to asia's first major market open. look in tokyo, futures as well, down 120 points. 111 territory.nd the fed holds a two day policy meeting this week. no one is expecting any changes. thestors will go over post-meeting statements about reducing the balance sheet, any indication of the timing of that.

far, we haveso seen stocks and bonds rally, which is counter intuitive. can both be right? i think this is a complex situation currently with the markets. there are a lot of expectations on growth and policy, but at the same time uncertainty, but ultimately until the end of the year, we will see more clarity and more certainty and that will change the situation. it is interesting you mentioned the dollar. we see it in a downtrend despite a busy central-bank week. other banks star link back expectations when it comes to reducing stimulus. 5536, even more bearish positions on dollar,
which is interesting. given the weaker greenback story , does this force the fed to raise rates because financial conditions are loose? upcoming fomc the not one ofrtainly those policy meetings where we will see productions -- projections. anymarket does not expect change in interest rates and the focus could be on the balance sheet timing of the one key piece of the puzzle. not thes this week will a significant reversal, especially the backdrop of dovish and has come but sentiment i think will change this week. numbers, but attention is still on inflation rates.
yvonne: does this give further room for the emerging-market rally in asia to catch up? revisions continue to be upgraded, close to 20% for 2017 already. >> right. on the emerging markets side of supported andy there is renewed optimism at the moment. there could be continued momentum, especially for key markets in the region. yvonne: credit suisse came out with a note that said these optimistic forecasts come down to several markets. honed in on south korea in particular. if you exclude that market from april 2 now, we see earnings -japan haven asia ex

part of this year, especially the second half. there could be a bit of reshuffling. you foresee any other sectors that could outperform beyond tech? you been looking at singapore banks recently as well. >> definitely. the markets are still focused on tech in my opinion. move inve shown an up recent sessions, especially the u.s. following stress tests, giving the banking sector a new lease on life. what we should be looking for in the longer term is how the interest rate outlook is going to be. the current dovish outlook, i don't think there will be too much on the upside there. for the singapore market, bank earnings at the end of this week, so investors will be

of singapore, the original head of gas, scott darling. at the meeting, is there anything opec can say to's shock the market at this point? >> we don't think so, and we think the opec becomes less compliant towards the year end, print forecasthe of 2018, around 25% below. bearishthat is pretty indeed. you have seen the likes of libya, nigeria, the output cap being ruled out, the saudi's possibly cutting one billion bottles -- million barrels, do you think that is what the market needs, or is there an appetite for the cartel? scott: if you look at u.s. productivity gains, and the
guidance for some of the companies, your own analysis around lastrowth is year from q4. and you could have this shell throw when million -- one million barrels per day. unless there is actually global crude build for the next year, it is forecasting for the moment. yvonne: i would be curious for the conundrum opec deals with with shale. anytime the cartel cuts u.s. shale,r loses they are willing to come and more, so can the group still persevere, or is there more of a chance that they could abandon this deal and revert to every man for himself? scott: we had j.p. morgan think
the latter, there is risk of a domino effect here. you have oil ministers who have said different things, that they will not adhere to these targets. the oil minister of australia wants one million barrels a day. it will be interesting when they are recovering their outputs. you put all of that together, you can look at the materials, and the other thing in the u.s., you have started to see draws in crude. -- let's nott forget u.s. crude is 10 million barrels ahead of the five-year average, so we are quite -- quite well supplied. mentioned opec will be in compliance. it will be interesting we heard barkindoindo, mohammed , he said it was excellent. who do you think is more likely
to cheat in the second half? scott: we would agree in the first half of this year, compliance was reasonable with opec. i think ecuador stated they would go to these cats. i mentioned iraq, i would put iran on the table as well as i mentioned nigeria, libya and a lot of the heavy lifting. a lot of the first half was done by saudi arabia. it would be interesting to see why they want to sustain further cutting in the first half of this year. yvonne: the change has been dramatic. we were talking about $50 being optimism for wti, now we are seeing analysts bring down their forecast. you think that could change from the upside? scott: it is a good question. demand where we are now in asia,
it has been tracking well. you have had india recover they should demand in the first few months of this year. the other upside risks, let's not forget venezuela. you have seen venezuela still 2% of global supply. you are starting to see that decline in the last few years. that is a risk. yvonne: it is interesting, is that why you have upgraded the reef writers in asia? we heard from the cftc that there would be severe overcapacity issues over in china right now. scott: we have a differentiated view on reform. if you look at net refining additions, the below demand growth, the actual net additions, you also look back in the last couple of years in the developed market countries, we are closing refineries. if you look at asia, until 2020,
you have material specifications especially in china, and india. that grace -- gives greater incidence and prolonging the very good refining margins especially in the next few years. that is hardly why we have been more positive, selective refiners, which have been lacking. the chinese performers have been spared when it comes to dealing with the industries, even though we continue to see the country provide more fuel than it can consume. morehe chinese refiners because of that, we could see more upside? scott: there is still scope or china or the world doing this. it could be next year the utilizations around the world for refineries are at a 10 year
high, but that does not mean they are over 90% or so. i think in china you have asset rationalization to some extent, small refineries being closed. you have not had large-scale refineries going out. but they are ramping up as we speak. apart from that, there is a lot theefineries upgrading for fuel specification changes being rolled out in china. scott darling, always great to have you. life for singapore. look at oil and other commodities through the market. we are joined by wealth management on where they think prices will be posed opec meeting. you can catch any of our interviews and watch us live using the interactive tv function. you can find it at tv and become part of the conversation

yvonne: it brings me back to inflation. we expect the fed to pause on raising rates? >> it depends on which you mean by paulus. at a meeting between the quarterly meetings where we get not just the press conference, but critically the forecast, there is not much going on. let's look for some nuance in the statement, but the fed prefers not to do much between those quarterly forecasts post conference meetings. you mention inflation, a critical theme. the fed has been disappointed and puzzled by the retreat in inflation. hit that 2% target in february, but it has gone the opposite way. when the jobs numbers remain strong, at some point fed officials say we still believe the models will kick in, but why is it receding now? they don't really know. refreshment, not
saying too much super substantial in this statement could be a a way to go. the ecb dampening some expectations as well last week during their meeting. onwill get back to you later to talk a little bit more about the global economy. we stay with the u.s., watching for any move on health care and trade does the trump administration moves paschi personnel changes and the russian investigation moves on with president trump son-in-law set to appear before a congressional committee. jodi schneider joins us now for more on this. let's start off with jared kushner. we are learning these will all be closed door. >> that's right. jared risner is set to testify before the senate and house intelligence committee this week , closed-door hearings. he has said he will tell everything he knows about his
meetings with russian officials and be forthcoming. manafortlso hear paul in the president's son, donald trump jr., but again behind closed doors. obviously this is moving closer to the president, and people are thinking one of the reasons he had the shakeup in his legal and communications team was to prepare for this and get past revelations of leaks and to move forward. yvonne: let's talk about anthony scaramucci for a second. he is known to be a smooth talker known in wall street circles, but do people know about him in washington and what he can bring forward here as we passed the six month term for the president? is goodf the things he at is bringing for the president's message on television. he has been doing that before he got this role. , this weekendg it
he was all over the sunday talk shows in washington from so he is going to be the tv message man for the president. withd a press conference the press last friday, saying i have made comments before and the president teacher mining me, he saidus one where something a president like and then said he reminds me of that every 50 seconds. the question will be how does he do in terms of that message. the president always doesn't stay on message as we know, and rein going to be able to in that tweeting. the president was treating this weekend saying why wasn't the justice department investigating hillary clinton, things that seem to be off message, so he will have an interesting task ahead of him, and sean spicer
resigned when this was announced , so already more changes. we keep seeing more and more changes. yvonne: sarah huckabee sanders replacing him as press secretary. let's talk about the u.k.. there areill be speaking with his counterpart in washington today. they are hoping for some kind of quick post-brexit trade deal, but how quick can it the? be until after brexit, so they are talking about something that will happen years down the road, and the u.s. and u.k. have always had a good trade relationship, so i think a lot of this is going to be about trying to, some will be symbolic, but trying to put a face on this. they want to move forward with trade post-brexit, as well as what they can do now. the other questions are what are trades. and u.k.'s to relat
relationships going to be with other countries. we saw some of that with japan last week did so there is a reemerging trade picture, and the tpp, president trump took that off the table, so the trade picture worldwide is changing. yvonne: thank you. a preview of what to expect. how india is giving china a run for its money when it comes to bad debt. capital economics will join us this hour. up next, are we closer to asia heading down a tightening path or will central banks continue to the verge? that's next. this is bloomberg. ♪
ahead to thising week's fed decision, especially as a tightening path the emerges from the boj. standard chartered joins us live from singapore, and we bring oss..dan m we were just talking about how the imf in april was quite optimistic about the global economy with that 3.5% growth in 2017. do you think that rhetoric or language will change today? >> i don't think it will. i think 3.5% is the same number we are looking at. the positive surprises have come from the west, especially europe . the story in asia is almost dull , growing relatively strong ly, even with all the surprisingly strong tightening
in china's financial sector. that from the q2 data has not been interfering with growth and the rest of the economy. yvonne: that is true. we were talking about inflation. 6022, bond traders calling janet yellen's loft when it comes to inflation. the 10 year auction last week to the weakest demand in nine years, bringing us back to levels we saw in the global financial crisis. ak loudly than what janet yellen is saying about inflation transitory, or do we assume that prices will go up this year? >> i will clear my throat and n say we need to be careful extrapolating what traders are doing to fed intention. if we go back to that first
increase in march, don't forget the headline at the start of the traders call janet yellen's bluff. all it took was three speeches and 72 hours later and it was 100% forecast for a rate increase, and that is what we got, so we need to be careful there. the vulnerability in the fed's ,rgument and the feds forecast inflation instead of picking up and staying at target, which it hit in february, is receding, and they don't know why. when the first couple of months going away from 2% came out, there was some sort of language that this was transitory and discussion of cell phone pricing, prescription drug benefits, but we have had a couple of mrs. now and the pce is drifting further away from 2%. it's not supposed to be doing this at this point in the cycle, and you are starting to see they
don't really know why. what we willing of see when it comes to rate hikes from the fed, it seems like they want one more this year. there yet,e ecb not but on a similar path. the bank of canada raising rates for the first time in seven years recently, so if we see this global synchronized recovery, what does this mean for asia? does it force their hand to begin normalization? >> it is an important message on whether or not we are seeing the fed doing as much as is priced in and whether it makes a difference. thinking back to that hike in march, where in january it was there that was still not disruptive for emerging markets. that is the key channel through which we need to judge whether central banks in the region
fellow blotch because the fed is hiking to be following suit to defend their own currencies or prevent any disruption in their markets. the place where we think the biggest risk of more easing is india, and secondly, indonesia, going in the opposite direction potentially, but critical will be can they do that because the financial backdrop is supportive enough to allow for it. we think it will be, especially if we get only one hike in december this year, a fed that has been priced in by the markets, and let's not forget the disruption caused by fed tightening has been going on since 2013. the peak of it was immediately after the election of donald trump, the peak of the euphoria and reflation trade. you need something like that to come back to for central banks to be changing tack. prices in particular have
been dragging down inflation and countering the initial rise we saw it in energy-let inflation, and there is nowhere this year we expect to see hikes. maybe korea next year. >> david, i want to come back to on those china points. you made the observation that credit tightening underway and china has not hurt growth at all , yet there is a constituency that keeps looking for china to undergo a dramatic slowdown, and he keeps never happening. can you explain that phenomenon, why there is a clash there between expectations and what actually happens? problem is we know china since 2009 when into a credit engine unprecedented historically, and the consequences longer-term through 2020 have meant even weaker growth and a misallocation of
resources into supporting zombie , sostries, excess capacity the drag has come from inefficient allocation of resources rather than collapsing growth. an a situationbe where we were in 2007 and interbank funding costs were soaring, the u.s. in particular, and compare that to china today, the main difference is that at any point the central bank in regulators have the ability to control exactly what happens next. if people are worried about some major systemic risks creeping in , and that is the major difference between this situation of excessive leverage growth running through a modeling people may have thought through, and that is why people keep getting caught out. the asset position is strong. the ability of coordination in the worst case is also strong, but it does not mean the
challenge isn't they are and it will be a drag on growth. heading towards 5% plus growth best through the 20 20's, something that can be dealt with. have a't have to solution forced to buy a crisis first. china in the 1990's found a solution without a financial markets meltdown. yvonne: thank you. you can get a roundup of the stories you need to know to get on your going dayb terminal and on your mobile phone on the bloomberg anywhere app, where you can customize the settings to get the news on the companies and assets you care about. check it out. dayb . this is bloomberg. ♪

yvonne: for more let's bring in ben sharples on set. about peakking optimism and everyone was thinking $60 for the year for wti. it seems we are way below that now. it raises the question whether these production cuts have worked. >> we are marginally above the area where we were before they agreed to the initial cuts. at the moment, the cuts are happening, but slower than what many had expected. a report saying compliance is starting to slip. ,t's adding a lot of pressure but at a slower pace than expected. this to rampnted up quickly so they did not have to cut for too long, but it is a
slower pace than many wanted. yvonne: they are saying nigeria and libya are going to be playing any part in these output caps, pretty central in this meeting as well. you think the saudis will have to offset this? >> they are back on the agenda because their production has been ramping up, adding the most to the output over the past couple of months, so that puts it on the agenda. , theare talking about the nigerian oil minister said they are willing to cap. the be a has considered if they can get to 1.2 5 million that millionl cap -- 1.2 5 that they will cap. they are back on the agenda. come a degree of caution needs to be taken with these two countries given the conflict that happens there on a regular basis. yvonne: what about the demand

we are looking ahead to earnings. week, tech first and foremost this week. will they deliver? , one of the big names, let's go into the bloomberg and take a look at the way the record s&p numbers have been driven by record earnings. what we are seeing is that the earnings are not happening in a vacuum. the fundamental trend has played a role in pushing the s&p higher. this is 12 month trailing eps, now tracking 122, an all-time high, then we have the consensus twelve-month eps expectations for the s&p 500 currently at 139, also all-time highs for companies in the index, so all of that pushing us higher. some of the earnings last week, there was a mix of performance. , the 21st down
quarter in terms of revenue, although they project stronger growth at the end, a story of the cloud disappointing. goldman sachs with strong earnings, but investors folk missed on the weakness in core units. net flicks blew it out in the u.s. butle could be a headline, it will be confusing. they will set aside $2.74 billion for that fine. they are expected to report eight dollars 25 cents a share on revenue of ¥25.60 dollars, but the big focus will be the elephant in the room, that fine. they plan to do fight it. , a lot of the energy companies, exxon among them, so it should be a rock 'n roll earnings session indeed. yvonne: thank you.
one big issue is what can we expect coming from the government. capitalscuss that with economics asia live from singapore. great to talk to you. this is in the midst of what we have learned about the government giving the r.b.i. more power to tackle this bad debt issue and this new bankruptcy law that passed last year. is there a sense now the measures are different than in the past, measures that have largely failed? >> possibly. there has been signs that the rbi and government are realizing the scale of the problem they have. the banks ignores the scale of that bad debt problem. is already 8% of loans in india's banking system, which is incredibly high by emerging-market standards. tests pipeline, stress
another 8%, so it is a real problem. there are a few signs the government, the new powers you mentioned given to the rbi could help at the margin for insolvency proceedings to begin, but this only scratches the surface. the extent of the problems, there is no real indication that banks could even take on the haircuts that might lead to a resolution, so much bigger measures are needed. yvonne: on the fiscal side? what could revive this banking sector? well, one of the biggest measures we need to see, a much larger scale capital injection from the government.
thanks to don't have the requisite capital to deal with taking on major haircuts, if that is what is agreed under these insolvency proceedings, so we need to see larger recapitalization. the issue with that is that the government itself is attempting to tighten fiscal policy, so the capital is not there in terms of the public sector. i think this could be potentially dealt with by the government actually selling off some of its assets in the state owned banks which account for 85% of india's ranking system, so there is scope to lower its stake and increased privatization. that will help to recapitalize the banking sector, but without damaging the government's finances. politically, this is a difficult move in india and does not look
like something the government has the appetite for. yvonne: it raises the question how muchther participation should the private sector have when the system is so broken. could this have a knock on effect on growth if you increase the savings rate or have private banks lend out to some of these corporate firms? >> certainly, so what has happened with state owned banks, eventant to lend, so though the demand for credit is there in india, utilization rates are tight. the time is right for a turn in the investment cycle. demand should be increasing for credit. on the supply side is where the problem is, banks worried about meeting the global capital requirements and not willing to lend to smaller and medium-sized
enterprises, and that has led to a significant slowdown in growth. unless this is resolved, this is a reason to think india is unlikely to meet its growth potential over the coming years, move toif we did greater private participation in banking, we could see lending rates recover. smaller firms would have access to finance, and that could lead to a boost to growth. as i mentioned, these measures remain off the table for now. yvonne: last month, we heard i, identifying the in d falters -- defaulters the country. is this a potential litmus test for india's new banking code or wilbanks just have to provision more? >> i think it is a let us test.
codes,he new bankruptcy the idea is to have bankruptcy proceedings wrapped up within six months, so the 12th biggest lenders account for a big share of these non-performing loans. if progress was to be made with insolvency proceedings and it could have a significant impact on the sheets of commercial banks, however, there isn't really a clear sign of what the consequences would be if these , theuptcy proceedings timelines and deadlines were not met, so it is a litmus test. see some cases wrapped up in six months, that would be taken as a positive sign, but it is still too early to say how things will result themselves. have you.eat to
