6:07 pm
what traders want. they want something more to calm down the tensions. the one is kind of -- president erdogan is kind of lashing out at the u.s.. we saw the iranian foreign minister getting involved, wondering why the u.s. is treating a nato ally in the same way president trump is doing. really nothing out of president erdogan to diffuse the crime out of the u.s.. he said the most recent thing we have heard from president trump kind of going about the situation in -- crowing about the situation in turkey. the turkish lira is falling against the strong u.s. dollar. it is similar to what we have seen trump do in the past couple of weeks. the chinese stock market. coming into the trading week, as you can see, plenty of volatility and concern among investors. haidi: plenty of concern, but ,hat about spillover effect
6:08 pm
contagion? there is a difference between what the markets have said or are saying and what is coming from the trump administration. .os: that is true markets are concerned, and we did see the big jump in volatility in emerging markets, in the emerging markets currency index. piling on thely pressure given the conflict between the u.s., china and the u.s. and russia. of concerns about contagion. the market was down friday. you think president trump, even though he has been enjoying this with u.s. markets competitors are allies or friend amaze, i don't think -- frenem ies, i don't think they want the slump for the election, the

ramy: we are counting down to the sydney open. there is the sydney opera house you are looking at on monday morning in the asia-pacific. futures slightly higher, up .2%, but lying what we saw in the -- belying what we saw in the red. with the geopolitics moving around the world, you look at china, turkey, russia, i am ramy inocencio in new york. haidi: i'm haidi stroud-watts in sydney. we want to get back to the topic of turkey because the question is if it is in the us and credit -- if it is idiosyncratic pace, stop these,oved to stemming the bleeding for now.
6:13 pm
tensions with the u.s. show no signs of abating. they are escalating. joining us is a managing director. happy monday. here is a chart to start our conversation. this is looking at correlation risk between the euro and the lira. as volatility rises, we have seen greater correlation between asset classes. is this something you are watching given the euro is two thirds of the dollar basket? >> it is something you see, big markets selloff. -- sell off. if you look at turkey, the economy is not that big, it is $900 billion. the european is $17 trillion. it is not huge part of the pie, so certainly you want to watch it because [indiscernible] haidi: the problem is it could get quite bad. there is no circuit breaker insights.
6:14 pm
policymakers are not doing anything because whatever they do is likely to be more backward for u.s. sanctions. raymond: i think the problems in turkey are not just a factor of what is happening with u.s. sanctions but more internal. it is mismatched, too much foreign-currency debt, not paring back with the lira. what they will do is put economic policies in place, increase capital controls to stem the losses they are facing in the domestic economy. ramy: if we had had this conversation an hour ago we might have said this line is president erdogan would not be doing that. we saw the headlines about the limits on swaps. hop into the gtv library. i want to show you the lira depreciation. we can see it is that the seven mark. to what degree does this give you optimism there is willingness to act on behalf of the central bank?
6:15 pm
raymond: if we saw the lira fall --er the 10%, they do have the president has been very reluctant to increase interest rates and do what is needed. what they have done is short-term growth through credit growth at the expense of long-term economic stability, so they are forced to act. the first step of mentioning regulation to the bank stock lines is one measure. i don't think it will be enough. they will have to increase interest rates. you have seen in other parts of the world where they say to stem the losses of the currency. they will have to increase substantially for them to stop the bleeding decline of the currency. ramy: let's say there was a lightning -- a lightbulb that went off.
6:16 pm
say, we have to do something. how much will they have to raise interest rates? raymond: it will have to be massive. we saw argentina interest rates at 40% or so. i think they will have to raise at much 5% or 10%. point soon five to maybe 30%, it depends on how much the lira continues to fall. at the moment, not a good start in asian trading. marketssingled to the willing to increase rates and do what is necessary, they might get confidence back. haidi: i want to talk about emerging markets because they are desperate for turnaround with the u.s. dollar. witht to show this chart the needs and we consists. equities close to what 2018 lows were. there is a lot of debate. a trade war, are these really
6:17 pm
difficult relationships with russia, turkey, iran conducive to a stronger dollar? raymond: it depends. with emerging markets you need a distinctive look at what is what is causing the selloff issues like in turkey, if it is domestic or not? haidi: turkey has mostly dealt with internal imbalances. the economics are not awful. raymond: yeah. if you look at the u.s. and asia compared to where they were in the financial crisis, the balance sheet is more strong. current account deficits are stronger. fundamentally they are stronger. the internal factors, the selloff of high-quality external factors, the push and pull whereas the u.s. increases interest rates, money will go out of em back to developed markets.
6:18 pm
[indiscernible] haidi: are you optimistic or opportunistic, or do you think momentum is looking dangerous? raymond: it is hard because you could be catching a falling knife. valuations look cheaper. for anyone looking to get into emerging markets, stick to higher-quality countries are companies in the em spectrum. you don't want to go aggressively too early. just buy a little bit now, see how it goes, then add on. it is hard to get to the bottom come a particularly in a segment of the market where it has been so volatile. ramy: i want to talk about the u.n.. they said -- there might be a shift with the dollar-yuan trade. i want to look at this recap of how far the yuan has fallen for nine straight weeks in a row. it has been falling since the week of june 15 of the summer.
6:19 pm
looking ahead, do you agree with them? they say the history is clear that protectionism has been affected -- we are not really seeing that. raymond: it has traditionally been a safe haven currency. it will do well when markets are experiencing volatility. my view is the yen is going to rally if we see these emerging markets and trade tensions play out. just the yen. the swiss franc, the u.s. dollar, u.s. bonds, they were up. think i misspoke. i said the yuan, not the yen. raymond: sorry. with the chinese yuan, we have found that closely. it is down 8% the last couple months.
6:20 pm
i appreciate in the sense if the trade war gets more, gets more significant or substantial, that will continue to selloff. we heard the pboc is unwilling to intervene at the moment. they need to. it is weakening through forces, and it is good for that given this trade war dispute. it is good for exports. it will decline gradually. i don't think it will go over seven. ramy: we are already at the high sixes. thank you as always. raymond lee, kapstream managing director. you can get a roundup of the stories you need to know to get your day going in daybreak. you can go to dayb on your terminal. it is available on mobile in the anywhere app. you can customize settings so you only get news on industries and assets you care about.

place. haidi: the august 7 tweet was not just provocative and controversial but also potentially triggered lawsuits. su: there are at least two filed on friday, one class action, the other a separate lawsuit. the biggest one alleges the billionaire cofounder and ceo and tesla itself manipulated shares. you can see the big swings in last week. the idea was they would push shares higher and manipulate short-sellers taking bearish bets against the company. there is the tweet. that is what it said, 50 characters, considering taking secured.vate, funding those words are likely legally at issue. we also know that another company is reviewing public statements made by tesla because of that tweet, and all of it

bringing pressure on the stock as we start the trading week. what is interesting as you know, the stoxx had shot -- the stock had shot up 11% when the tweet came out and then lost over the next two days. a lot of questions arose about where this secured funding whereas -- funding was. .here were talks with softbank the talks supposedly fizzled over issues of control. one of the complaints said the funding, the statement was secured is material and moved the market again. that confirms the issue whether or not it was secured will be a legal contention going forward. thank you so much for that. we are watching bluescope steel that has come up with its earnings indicators area of net income beach the highest analyst estimates at bloomberg, $4.157

it is a relatively small economy in the grand scale of things, and once moves start to be made by the authorities, you can get movement towards resolution, and it can be contained. we saw uptick in the lira just now. banking regulations. that might provide some kind of cushion, but this has to be the start of a series of moves the authorities need to do to contain this situation. what we are doing monday morning yen,eing strength in the the s&p 500 futures coming off a little bit on the broader week sentiment set up -- weak sentiment set up. we saw some moves on friday trading. at the moment it is showing it is relatively contained, but clearly, u.s. stocks towards record highs, people are looking

6:44 pm
remains defined in the face of sanctions. in three public addresses he last out at washington, accusing the u.s. of waging war on a long time ally. our next guest says things will get worse for getting better. kierkegaard. jacob thank you for joining us. if you like a roller coaster ride for the lira, you are getting one. not just in the past week or two, but in the past few hours. the latest line was the country was going to limit swaps. what do you think this is as a lightbulb moment for turkey? jacob: i hope it is, but i will also say that judging from the comments over the weekend from president erdogan, i am not quite certain that the top leadership in enter a -- ingres --
6:45 pm
i mean a full-blown financial crisis which as i look given where the lira is, you can impose capital control and the like, but i think all roads need to be met. that will not be pleasant. doesn't wantogan an international bailout. what can change his mind? jacob: you are going to see a cascade of domestic reforms. turkey has 180 billion or so in short-term debt, foreign debt repayment over the next 12 pay -- 12 months. most of it is corporate. , for a country its size, a low exchange reserve. rising -- ate is a
6:46 pm
a time of rising u.s. interest rates. he is living dangerously, and ultimately i think there is going to be a big shift to the domestic economy. when that happens and credibility needs to be reinstated nationally and internationally, he could find the imf is useful. cynical, but sound it feels like policymakers and the central bank are standing by because they could raise interest rates by 1000 basis points but the u.s. could have more sanctions. the efficacy, the efficiency before they do this is limited. there is no doubt if the trump administration was intent on waging all-out economic war on turkey, they could do so. i must say on the other hand, i don't think they are. i think people are reading too much into mr. trump's tweets and
6:47 pm
the increase in steel and aluminum tariffs. they will hurt but turkish -- they will hurt the turkish steel sector. construction will go into a tailspin, but is it all out comic war? no. it reflects the fact that mr. trump is someone who has said it doesn't rates nato highly and then as perception, turkey is somehow protected by being a member of nato is obviously not the case. but i would say that if the central bank in turkey was truly would be raising interest rates now and rapidly. haidi: it feels like this is the summer of discontent. you have u.s. relationships, diplomatic or economic with china to russia to iran, now
6:48 pm
turkey, brexit negotiations going nowhere. does it feel like we are setting up for a ratcheting up of global risk at the moment? jacob: there is certainly that risk. there is a rather unprecedented degree of unpredictability at the core of the global financial system, whether you are talking brexit or the actions of the trump administration. at the same time, we should not get too far ahead of ourselves because we did just have a cease-fire on the trade war between the u.s. and european union. we are hearing warmers -- rumors the nafta the renegotiation at least with mexico is in the cards. i don't think we are at armageddon, but the risk is there, it is clear. ramy: president erdogan has
6:49 pm
threatened to go and make new alliances. which countries and regions could benefit? jacob: i believe it is an empty threat frankly because it is not clear who he would go to and who would afford really helping him out. he could go to russia. there is no doubt vladimir putin would love any opportunity to split nato, but does he have the kind of tens of billions of dollars turkey really needs? i don't think so. he could not really go to the middle east because he has strongly sided with qatar in its struggle with the other gulf nations. i don't think qatar itself can bailout turkey. the u.s. is out of the question, and he has had on and off spat with most of the european leaders as well. while everyone wants immigration deals to stay in place, they
6:50 pm
will not be sending tens of billions of euros to turkey anytime soon. so he should look for friends elsewhere, but do they have deep pockets? i don't think so. ramy: limited options and limited money. senior fellow jacob kierkegaard, thank you. you can always find in-depth analysis and the day's big newsmakers on bloomberg radio. tune into daybreak asia 6:00 a.m. hong kong, 8:00 in sydney. download the app bloomberg radio plus for access via

starbucks always considers its best advantage to be locations. people actually spend money inside the store. so we decided not to compete on their terms but did find our own advantage, delivery service. in 2013 our first attempt was delivering starbucks coffee because back then we did not have our own brand. we wanted to see if there was a market for this. demandlowing year we saw in delivery coffee growing significantly. we saw our first round of funding in 2014, then we could launch our own brand. business has taken off since then. tom: how much of a threat is starbucks and alibaba partnership to your business model? it is good news for us.
6:55 pm
when a giant enters the market, they make the market bigger. our slice of the pie gets bigger. i think this move by alibaba and starbucks will increase the craze for coffee delivery. starbucks entering this space will be a big challenge for us. in the eyes of chinese consumers, their brand represents a setting to drink coffee in while ours is about delivering coffee whenever. we are like pizza hut and dominoes, one you eat in, one away. we are different business models. ramy: interesting interview. that was coffee box ceo speaking to tom mackenzie. let's do a quick check of business flash headlines. indian oil posted a 50% jump in quarterly profit. that is converting crude into fuel. the net income climbed $999
