maybe that will suggest he is trying to expend his own regime past 2022. is he going to stay on as the head of a military -- the military or in a different capacity? behind himeople will include younger people., potential successors. people -- two people tomorrow, potentially. if he walks out with a smaller standing committee, he could shrink the power base. that would rollout any -- rule out any chance we would see a
successor in that grouping. if shan stays on, that could rip up the age precedent. ramy: what would this mean for president xi? -- tell ustell it how much more power he has added. that is what we are looking at. there is lots of speculation as to who will take over for him. if he comes out with a successor, there is a of speculation as to who they are and what role they could be playing. up, just how much

how much emphasis the president is going to have choosing the fed chair. what is happening in china could be just as dramatic. >> this is what we talk about the issa tarik mechanics of the chinese communist party. ist we're going to get essential and is expected to be unveiled at some point this evening. their first job tomorrow morning beijing time will be to vote, at least in theory. in practice, that decision has probably already been made. of the bureau, there is a standing committee and that is the apex of chinese power that will be unveiled on the red carpet in quite dramatic fashion. the one thing to watch out for is the lineup. just what order they come out in because that will indicate the ranking in terms of the party
leadership. yet the thing to bear in mind is the age requirement. it's not a rule, but a precedent. they can't extend their terms beyond the age of 68. that is something also to remember. the other thing to remember is the party charter. will president xi be enshrined in the party charter? will find out at the end of today as well. if he does and if he's named in the chinese communist party constitution, it puts him on the same level in terms of power and prestige. yvonne: what are some of the different scenarios? we were talking earlier. but doesn't matter that the president has reaffirmed his power in the party congress? >> it matters because we will figure out just how much more power he's going to have.
if what we are expecting, he is going to continue to have significant influence. he is expected to be stepping down. it could be a different role as head of the military or head of the party or create some other role for himself. he never had a big formal title but maintained it. he steps out with six people before 1960. after 2022. the question of who would take over and would throw out a precedent set in 1992 where you get these successes effectively named to put on the top table.
stepping out with a smaller. president xi to set out with a line up of six people that does .nclude guangxi chan it could also rebut the age precedent and potentially mean that president she might look to extend his own time past 2022. that is chinese politics for you. >> thank you very much. >> what does this mean for the next five years. context chinese leaders.

what he may do is cross at a new position and remain ahead of the military. -- the head of the military. it's that kind of thing they could unveil. not just domestically, but foreign policy as well. someone who has been dealing with washington and beijing ties over trade negotiations, the south china morning post reports over the weekend he could be elevated. u.s. china relationship, something that could be a positive. in it is leading up to president trump's visit in november. raimi: terrific reporting a terrific details, as always. tom mackenzie in beijing. looking ahead, too many staff, too many branches. why the boj's warning japanese banks that they need to slim down to survive. yvonne: perhaps too many cooks in the kitchen. plus, betting on the fed raise
yvonne: this is daybreak asia. just as president trump says he is very close to announcing his pick and it is all but assumed, right? there were reports that one of those dark horse candidate has moved up again. our global economic and policy editor kathleen hays is here. who are we talking about? we are talking about five people but the latest is kevin warsh who is a former morgan stanley executive and a former member of the federal reserve's board of governors. let's start by looking at all the people on the list because there are five on the short list interviewed over the week by fox news, donald trump signaling that his favorites are john
taylor, j powell on the board of governors, and spent many years banking, and janet yellen. he said i like janet yellen a lot in that interview. the three. a gary cohn who used to work it goldman sachs, doesn't seems a likely. and kevin warsh was not really high on the list. it turns out kevin met with mike pence on the same day that trump met with yellen, thursday of last week. betting,also apparently and we have been getting an idea that john taylor is favored by conservative republicans that change direction. kevin warsh is also in that can't as someone who would change direction. furthermore, the wall street journal story points out that back in 2012 when j powell was first nominated for board of governors, 21 republicans voted against him, and in 2014 when he
got his own turn to be on the board, 24 voted against him. more of a race to the extent that donald trump will listen to his own vice president and listen to other conservative republicans. one thing we know for sure is he said he would make this pic by november 3 because that's when he's leaving for asia. on high alert waiting to see what happens. like we're like that every single day. there is so much debate about john taylor and how hawkish of the fed chairman he could be. that situationin as well? .athleen: an excellent question he was against fed easing in the financial crisis. he was critical of quantitative easing.
no doubt he has indicated that be flexible.o we know the boj will be more stimulative than ever after abe won. though, not news, only for the boj and the japanese economy, but asian emerging markets, global bond deals, because the fed, no matter how hawkish or not hawkish, a question of how fast the ecb meets on thursday. so the boj can be an offset regardless, very forged aspects globally for the bond market. i think john taylor would be best for the boj. kathleen, thank you. let's talk about the dollar now. g #btv 9627.
it seems like we have found a bit of a bottom here. we are seeing the red bars down there, the dollar short now starting to just shrink a little bit. last week, we saw the biggest shrinkage and more bullish sentiment since march. some of the dollar bears out there seem to be waking up a little bit. a second session touching the highest since the 14th of july. joining ustegist, live from singapore. peter, kevin warsh, and name like that, what does it mean for the dollar bears? peter: i think of kevin warsh were to get through to the fed chair, he is generally perceived to be one of the most hawkish man in terms of nominations. are likely than not, the markets are still favoring powell, but taylor is up there as well. compared to the current fed
chair, janet yellen, who is still also in the mix, they are perceived to be more hawkish. in terms of market reaction to the initial announcement, it will be a dollar positive reaction. word to be reappointed. if we get powell or taylor, it could be differing degrees of probably knee-jerk dollar strengths. yvonne: what does this mean for the whole bank. ,e can continue to make this the ecb makes us as well. they could be extending their qe program. those priced in so far. peter: we had a strong rally
for the euro. a lot of that was the improvement in the economy. if we look ahead to this week's meeting, i think the general consensus is a nine-month extension. purchases around 40 billion euros a month. we are relatively more hawkish than that. already looking for a six-month extension. we try to limit any adverse market reaction whereby financial conditions tied to it too much. criticizing that the program is open-ended. just to cool the heels around going to zero in a straight line. it then again, if we look at more broadly, we have
organization -- yvonne: go ahead because i was going to ask about your forecast. he could be rebounding at the turn of the year. how do we get there? in catalonia as well as italy. >> i think it is generating market headlines and newspaper headlines. but in terms of the actual reaction to the currency, it is not generating too much of a negative impact. you need to remember the ecb and other policymakers put in place a lot of backstops. to prevent politics and any type of political risk driving market direction. driver.t really a big when we look at things going
forward, obviously, the dollar is one side of angst. hasdollar in the u.s. improved and we are starting to get some traction around a tax policy coming through is well. that caught us a little bit by surprise. optimistic, att least in terms of the timing and the scale of any measures that come through. and i think one thing people need to remember is that when the fed announced tapering, it was the return of an human to the market that drove the dollars strength. it wasn't the rate hikes by the fed. once there is tapering of the asset purchases, the euros sensitivity to the dollar will continue to increase. the economy is improving. it continues to surprise for the upside.

six monthly reports that they do , analysis of japanese banks comparing it to european banks. and they found they have too many branches. it is efficiency and low profitability. bank of japan has pointed that out. it is all lost on the banks. they cut the workforce and in japan, you have to do it by attrition. so we can improve the efficiencies by investing. and they are generating positions. yvonne: sure, but what i don't understand is that isn't the boj the one inflicting some of the pain for japanese banks with negative interest rates? what of a saying -- seeing as efficiency that needs to be slimmed down?
>> it is the bank of japan predicament in the first place. it has really squeezed the traditional properly. and the report is that, despite the banks efforts to try to boost the income, it is still comparatively low as the income has those banks around the world. this fear among japanese banks. customers have too many fees. so many banks in japan. they are so competitive. they are reluctant to boost the income. raimi: telik they are we to see
consolidation in the sector? for many years, the regulators in the bank of japan said the community banks had several hundred more. have been trying to encourage them over the years. such as banks, the next 20 years. it needs to be shaken things up. >> interesting stuff. thank you for that insight. the bloomberg banking reporter from tokyo. a quick check of the latest
business flash headlines. the former hsbc mark johnson has been found guilty of fraud for front running a $3.5 billion client order. he was convicted of nine out of 10 counts of fraud and conspiracy. he is the first person tried of the scandal, banks paying more than $10 billion and he plans to appeal. more prominent automakers as part of the brand colluded on technology. ratedre the latest to be after checks last week. they reported that the three men in the 1990's will coordinate tech, cost, flyers, and strategy. raimi: 238 proposals across 54 america.cross north

raimi: this is daybreak asia. i'm in new york. and i'm in hong kong. the commonest party is preparing to reveal its essential committee on tuesday. beijing has offered few clues on the final lineup. observers are wondering if it will include any younger faces. us bring in china's bloomberg asian government reporter. take us through what you'll be expecting over the next two days or so. you talked about the big reveal will be happening on wednesday. and there will be a lot of importance and significance to were the order in which people come out and if they will be standing as well. will allow the new central committee. it made up for members, and 15 important members. and the central committee will elect the party through and the standard committee tomorrow. but from today's central
committee, we can get a few clues about very important ping'sns about whetherpi top anticorruption czar will stay there. he actually comes out of the curtain and really sets the stage for xixi ping, unlikely he will name a successor. >> it is a good indication of ping's own intentions. just like a diplomatic line for tomorrow and the standing committee is to keep the clearest indication yet about ping's succession plans. if we don't see any young officials. i mean any young people that were born after 1960. which should assure them, they are young about 10 years up to 2022.
like maybe he's going to hold onto power. which would be unprecedented of course. how important is it about the clarity of these names and their positions, and whatsit stake over the next five years. >> for the immediate predecessors, both of them have the air powered note either before or during the second term. so if hang is not going to signal -- ping is not going to signal anything clear tomorrow, it will be through what would be placed in 1992. to the destruction of the systems, it is going to reach the question about whether china's elite succession terms have been on place and if it
seek aick around and third term for himself. yvonne: at this level, he's gotten rid of thousands of corrupt officials. whether it is the weight of the references or the staff or whatnot. if he names his successor, it would only dilute his power by about five years. >> it would somehow make him a lame-duck. and by anointing a successor, like doing his second term or during his midterm, it will increase pressures on the successor. predecessor to how has been waiting in the wing for 10 years. and basically, he has been very, very quiet for 10 years, being groomed in the standing committee since 1992. so i think that the party
consensus would like to avoid that kind of scenario from happening. raimi: very quickly here, what could be the appetite for china's masses for its citizens if president xixi ping tries to do a third term? would that be accepted? is hugely ping popular among the, you know, kind of the masses. largely, because of his anticorruption campaign. if there is one thing why he actually set up the succession institutions of 25 years ago is because he wants to maintain the treaty and avoid those sort of like women called of leadership that has been established under chairman mao. maybe china did not want that from happening. you, our asian government reporter. a look ahead to the party conference in the last day. here is today. us look at how markets are trading here. a bit of a pullback after the recent run-up we have seen.
