3:33 pm
certainly in the u.s., the tech rally. bestasdaq on pace to its days since march of last year. relative to the s&p 500, it's best day since 2009. this on a very strong earnings report from lots of big internet names, but really a huge, huge averages,the major especially the nasdaq. take a look. all of these stocks surging. amazon, microsoft, alphabet hitting the highs of the day and take a look at amazon --above 1100 -- you knew that would happen? yesterday in the premarket, they put up that absolutely amazing quarter. not quite getting to that level. investors and a party mood. all of the growth being reported. those shares having their best day since 2015. a record and a big day for technologies. scarlet: all right, "what'd you
3:34 pm
miss?" spanish prime minister rajoy sacking the catalan parliament and calling for new elections in december. that after catalonia gave itself independence. we have our reporter on the ground in barcelona as well as michael mckee. it's been just over an hour cents mariano rajoy surprised everyone i taking the bold move out firing the entire catalan parliament, the president, the vice president, also calling for elections. what are you seeing? what are you hearing? reporter: hi again. good night from barcelona. madeeople -- again, rajoy it clear yesterday. there will be no backtracking from this government.
3:35 pm
declare this a republic, this is what they call an illegal referendum. that this is going to be a situation where they have to defend this hypothetical republic, and they do expect madrid to come in and sack the present. that is something everyone expected. it is no surprise. what is interesting, rajoy actually opted for an early election. he could rajoy said call for elections within six months. he has called an early election. that is interesting. barcelona -- it will come down to what can the people here in barcelona actually due to disband this republic. see arrestscould we of separatist leaders in the coming days? we could currently see arrests. are serious there charges that they could press. the rebels could go to prison
3:36 pm
for 30 years. i do want to point out, it was another roller coaster day here in barcelona. the head of the parliament said, i do want to say before we vote, there could be legal ramifications. and they actually asked for a secret ballot because they feel that there will be a need for a legal crackdown. obviously, all of this goes against the constitution. a lot of this -- we know the central government in madrid does not want this picture, but theould have where if president locks himself up and does not want to leave, how do you get him out? i guess you could get the police to make him leave. that's an option. abigail: the financial markets affected allo be that much. we had a huge rally in the u.s. on earnings. could there be a contagion situation where investors would fear something would spread
3:37 pm
across europe? michael: there is not any contagion at this point. this is felt to be something that will be disruptive to spain and the spanish economy, although not that much and not that long. there does not seem to be any contagion to any other country at this point. you have all of the eu countries telling the catalan government, we do not recognize your independence. spain is our only partner. you will not stay in the trade union if you were to break away. you would lose your currency. we will not deal with you. they would just let them go. it will be difficult for rajoy to immediately impose his will because the catalan government has so many powers reserved to itself. look at yeah, when you the financial response -- the euro is lower. it has been lower all day. and then what is going on in spanish assets now that the spanish markets are closed -- the white line shows a slight
3:38 pm
increase in volume, but certainly below average volume for what you typically see for this etf. joe: there's no signs of financial contagions. no one recognizing the independence or anything like that. this is a very rich region of spain. from an economic standpoint, do we expect to see a slowdown or other things representing in the data of people being concerned? michael: yes, you have companies that have moved their corporate headquarters out of catalonia since the independence vote. and it has had a very depressing effect on the economy. it is unclear what they will get out of this. barclays is forecasting catalonia will go from plus 3% , swingingegative 2% five percentage points in one quarter. it will not hurt spain all that much.
3:39 pm
it will take about half a percentage point of spanish growth, but it will have a significant affecting catalonia. scarlet: that will take some time to shop in the numbers. eveningt is late friday in barcelona right now. what will you be watching for them barcelona this weekend? a goodexactly, that is question. the ammunition the regional government had, they used it. when it comes to the courts in madrid, the legal system, and the european union, they have clearly sided with the central government. the key here is -- what are barcelona and catalonia going to do and how much resistance are we going to get? the big question is, how long does it take time to answer meant and how efficient is this going to be? remember, this article has never been used at all.
3:40 pm
there are questions about how it will be used. how long does it take to get the government in catalonia out? scarlet: questions i believe we will start to get the answers to next week. maria taddeo joining us from barcelona. thank you. to, the fed's quest get to 2% inflation being spoiled by an unknown agent. we will explain. this is bloomberg. ♪

3:47 pm
nutshell, explaining your argument, how they are preventing the fed from hitting their target? >> sure. increasingnd, the use of computer technology over the entire economy is actually lowering the rate of inflation, has and will continue to by 50 basis points a year. that may not;, but that in a nutshell explains much of the shortfall we have seen in course -- in core inflation, not just over the last year, but the last decade. joe: there is something intuitive about this argument and other people have a similar argument. but i find it interesting that you have attempted to quantify say, byct, as you lowering it 50 basis point. what do you do specifically to lower the impact? >> sure. we have 1000 occupations based industries and we look at what
3:48 pm
products they have. component ishat computers. computer technology services and so forth your it and then you just ask the question -- what if the people did not have them pewter-based technology -- computer-based technology? hypothetical. but if you strip it out, the inflation prices would be higher today, and it's because computer technology is increasing at an increasing pace and the prices of technology are falling at an exponential pace. able to idea you are look across sectors and across goods and assigned them a computer component -- >> yeah, so any industry, whether it is in auto manufacturer or utility firm or law firm, there are certain parts that are paid for by computers and that has risen
3:49 pm
over time. as example, it takes eight cents of technology to produce one dollar of gdp 10 years ago. we now use $.20 of technology -- we know the price of technology, so the share has risen, and i think that has an underappreciated, stunning factor on the prices that companies need to charge. joe: so here is my question. inhave seen the decline prices. in theory, that should mean more money in consumer pocket and, at in theory, war money in consumer pockets should mean more spending. why don't we see that balancing out elsewhere in the economy? >> i think again, this effect is well beyond the things that they do around controlling for computers in certain components of the cpi. this is beyond amazon prime. i think what we are seeing, joe, is an higher elevated profit
3:50 pm
margins. we can see the inflation return. i think it is a little bit lower than what the fed may even think about given this depressing effect on moore's law. joe: so, your assertion is the excess value captured by the ever cheapening technology, where it is showing up as in corporate profits? >> definitely. we certainly are seeing less price pressures on the consumer side. not to say all businesses have powerful pricing power. not many of them do. but in one since it is ironic because computer technology is all around us, and yet i think it has been somewhat overlooked. there is a limit to how much technologies can limit price pressures, but it definitely needs to get below 4% before we see meaningful price -- price joe: pressure.
3:51 pm
interesting -- price pressure. joe: interesting. >> i think it is good. it is less slack in the economy. i would still like to see them a year from now at a higher level. where i think the growing risk is this time next year -- because i think the transitory prices on inflation may moderate. rise on corelittle inflation. if we are right on technology, the risk is a year from now the fed may be a little too aggressive. that sets up at dicey environment for 2019. got it. joseph davis, global chief economist at vanguard. thank you very much. this week has been all about learning spirit we have a chart on how tech products getting upgraded. from new york, this is bloomberg. ♪

4:04 pm
if you look at two-year yields, you can see that drop just before 10:00. right around 10:00 when that news came out. the basic idea is if you thought the alternative was taylor, this dovish futuree policy path. a continuation of the yellen regime. scarlet: some argued that no matter who becomes fed chair would be a continuation of the yellen regime. you have reports that the president favors jerome powell helping the dollar advance. the 3% gdp might be because it --might be the reason they got higher. the euro weakening. not much of a reaction to the breaking news on spain.

4:07 pm
thes almost entirely due to reporting out of tech. a week ago we were lamenting not so great earnings. ge came out not so great results. that is all reversed this week and is largely due to tech. joe: here is a chart showing tech's share of the s&p 500 price versus tech etf contribution relative to the total. you see the good old days in the bubble where the s&p had a share in price but it was not contributing to earning. gina: tech is selling higher because earnings are going higher. this is a different situation than what we saw in 2000 when higher.aere moving

one question is even if they want to make a payment, we don't really know how they go about doing it, do we? >> a managed to make it. actually the money is not in the funds yet. we have been tracking and have not had confirmation of money is -- has been moved. basically this was a deadline so period.e no grace they do not save money so they were able to make the payment today. they have paid -- blame the payments on the u.s. sanctions are slowing the payment stream. maybe that is true.
4:43 pm
maybe the reality is the money is coming from all these random locations some of your client is slowing the process sound or maybe they don't have the money until the last minute. they have been telling investors in the essay today the problem sanctions so -- that should not be the problem. >> do investors care where they get the money? of theydo in a sense are trying to piece together as many clues as possible to figure out their capacity to pay it going forward. they want to know where it is coming from so they know how sustainable it is going forward. it is like living paycheck to paycheck. what about the payment next thursday? >> they definitely have a lot
4:44 pm
more confidence. thereas interesting is really was not a dramatic relief rally. presumably, they still think there's a high probability and just a reminder, venezuela printed a 99% probability of default. i don't think i saw that. they have made a point to say renesola does not default on its bonds. the government has made clear it is not going to do that either so you have a disconnect. they wouldd think prioritize medicine, but they don't.
4:45 pm
is -- is they have to do what they can with it. they are really down to their and they knowoney if they don't pay their bonds, it could imperil future revenue streams. >> it has been a long wait for you next week will probably be busy. for traders, how do they go about it trying to weigh the odds? >> i read a great story yesterday about some traders having the ministry on speed dial and having to learn the names of people and their back-office. withof these institutions

4:50 pm
but i don't think it will be the end of the world in terms of the amount. growth,there is good just inflation is not high enough to say it is going to go out of control. gdp and i said 3% said around 245, 240, i would be shocked. wouldn't you? rates will only rise gradually, maybe two and level -- to a level of 2.1%. we still have to accommodate a monetary policy around the world and people will continue. >> ray dalio was on bloomberg earlier and he talked about the risk in treasuries.

the risk in the bond markets as well. it does to 40 makes sense for you on a 10 year? >> absolutely not. higher andare going are seeing -- when you look at some the actions around the world, if rates go higher come that money can go home and i am specifically thinking about japan. gdp.inking about 3% flattersitioned for a yield curve. can see how much that has spread between the short and long in. that is a big consensus trade right now. is that something you go with or go against? towardsnk we are moving a flatter curve.

banks are being less accommodative and are not tightening. they can be very self in their tapering and that i think is the key, is that it is quietly happening in the market, but when money starts to flow back to home, that is when things can change. the treasury market started to move and then we had a headline that the president was leaning towards jay powell to be the future fed chair and we reverse the move around u.s. gdp . could you make sense of that? puttingss people were probability that taylor would have been less of the status quo
4:53 pm
, so i think that explains the reversal. i agree the numbers were pretty strong and they were something that should have been for higher yields. >> misses is what i see in front of me. regardless of the pharaohs are -- federal reserve, they are hawkish versus the market and you see that there 18 through 2020 as well. jay powell is in the next rate therefore, he will be more hawkish than the market expects anyway. >> think themark probability -- why? -- inhink the probability this respect, powell is getting means there will be
4:54 pm
some continuation and in this it would continue to the run in the middle. if you look at the median, it is 2.2%. that is the policy rate. that is 30 basis points below the 10 year. either we get this flat yield curve or something and not happen. >> we will definitely move towards flattening. i think what the market is saying is we believe -- we prefer howl over taylor.
