10:00 am
it is 10:00 a.m. in new york, 3:00 p.m. in london. i am romaine bostick in four vonnie quinn. guy: i am guy johnson. ofaine: it is a big day negotiations with china. president trump tweeting he will meet with the vice premier. stocks were flat and they shot up once that tweet crossed the wire. nine of the 11 s&p sectors up. financials leading the way, up about 1.4%. 10 year treasury yields up five basis points. one point 63, a lot of volatility this morning, overnight during the asia hours, heavy volume in u.s. s&p futures. 1%p sawing back and forth,
10:01 am
gain in both directions, the market clearly banking on a trade deal. whether stocks go up or down will depend on the details. keep an eye on the dollar. the direction will be dictated on whether this is a short-term deal or whether this is a more broad-based deal that resolves lingering trade issues. crude oil, demand, supply issues. more information on the supply side out of opec, demand still a concern, 1.43%. up for a second day. optionere is a third which is no deal, which would imply sanctions going up on the 15th and more on the 15th of december. the market risk on assets liking the idea that liu he will meet the president. the euro has been gaining ground
10:02 am
despite disappointing data. the dollar is down. i want to mention what is happening with turkish assets, stock market trading down by 2%. bond market, the yields moving aggressively, and the lira is under pressure. turkey puts more troops into syria, a tense situation emerging as president erdogan says if europe says it is an invasion, he will send all the refugees europe's way. assets under pressure. trade, everything today, that is the game. he we get a deal or not, do we get sanctions? romaine: we will continue talking about what is going on with trade as u.s. and chinese negotiators behind closed doors in washington right now. joining us on set, tom orlik in and sarahrk fiero,
10:03 am
ponczek here. there is a lot of speculation as to what a deal means at this stage. is it agriculture products, is there a currency factor? have we given up on broader issues like intellectual property and market access? what are you expecting? tom: if we go back to the beginning of the year, the hope form d.c. was for a big comprehensive deal. they wanted intellectual property protection, market access, and a change to china's program of industrial subsidies. fast to where we are now, that big deal is not on the table, but both in china and the u.s. is slowing. it seems there is appetite for a deal, maybe something on
10:04 am
agriculture or transparency, it may be some small details around things like sanctions on chinese shipping firms, and none of these things will fundamentally move the dial in terms of growth . what they could do, which is significant, as prevent additional tariffs going on in october and december, and giving the market a sense of calm and uncertainty, which i think would be significant heading into the end of the year. guy: calm and certainty sounds great. the president will ultimately be the one who makes the decision and the tweet just a few minutes ago highlighting that. they want a deal, do i want a deal? is it all about the president's take? will the tweet be more important? sarah: now we know the president is going to be meeting with the delegation tomorrow.
10:05 am
that is perceivable he what we see stocks rallying off of. that is what it comes down to. yes, president trump has his team. he will listen to them and what they have to say, but if he does not like the deal that china is coming forward with, he has -- he does not have to take it. tariffs are supposed to go into place next week and the next round december 15. case isestors' base that we will have a truce and will not see tariffs go into place october 15. we do have an idea that this will not be a deal that likely touches on intellectual property , things that are more in-depth, but president trump has made it clear that if this is not a true deal he will not sign onto it. people will push back and say you have to contend with weaker economic data, and slower
10:06 am
growth. romaine: let's cut through the fog, because at the end of the day we are talking about a global growth situation that has slowed considerably compared to where most people thought we would be a year or a year and a half photo -- half ago. acceleratee deal that global growth picture? tom: we are looking at a re-acceleration at this point, but there is a couple of things that are significant. those additional tariffs that are slated to come in october and december. those are significant tariffs that would essentially bring all chinese sales to the u.s. under the tariff umbrella. we are talking about laptops, smartphones, tablets. if you thought the previous impact of rounds of tariffs on
10:07 am
textiles and such was significant, the next lot even more significant. if that comes off the table, that removes a significant overhang from the gross outlook. guy andnd point, and sarah are completely right to point to president trump's twitter account and the uncertainty around his view and position as the ultimate decider . it is that uncertainty and pessimism which has been the more significant factor, more significant than tariffs as far as creating a drag on global growth. if the mood music out of this meeting is more positive, if we get a delay on tariffs and the two sides say, we are talking again, some of that uncertainty will come away and it will be positive for markets and business sentiment. guy: do you think the nba dispute makes it harder to get a deal done? at first blush, you would not
10:08 am
think that would be the case, but i imagine a lot more americans are aware these talks are taking place. more americans are aware there is a big dispute between china and the united states. hong kong probably gets thrown into this bucket. presumably, politics is getting more and more part of the equation for president trump. tom: that is a great point. when this was an economic dispute, it looked like there was a win-win solution. then it became an economic dispute and a technology dispute and it looked harder. now it has become economic, technology, politics, and culture. getting to a deal is much harder to do. in the very short-term as we think about the talks taking place now, it is kind of remarkable they are taking place at all. think about what has happened in
10:09 am
the last week. ,e have the nba controversy u.s. sanctions on major chinese technology and surveillance companies, the scoop from bloomberg about the u.s. potentially blocking dollar flows into china. there is a high risk that the vice premier says, this is not a good backdrop for talks. i am not getting on the plane to d.c., and the fact that he is here and these talks are taking place as a suggestion that we should not be ruling a mini deal out. romaine: we will keep an eye on that all day long, tom orlik with bloomberg economics and sarah ponczek. let's check in on the bloomberg first word news. morning,ng this associates of really giuliani have been arrested in virginia. they have been indicted in a new

♪ live from new york, i am romaine bostick. guy: i am guy johnson. looking at what is happening in the markets ahead of the trade talks, abigail doolittle is here with the details. abigail: we have a risk on day around the world, not so much in europe, but in the u.s., look at the s&p 500 up a half a percent. hopes around the trade talks between the u.s. and china that a partial deal will come out of it. oil up, ate tens of 1%. investors moving up -- out of bonds. haven assets doing less well. if we take a look, the s&p 500
10:15 am
is risk on. investors selling the defensive sectors. financials up top at 1%. energy, but that those sectors being driven by rising yields. some of the biggest movers on the s&p 500, take a look at skyworks solutions. shares higher end pieces of that are around trade. delta gave an outlook on the fourth quarter, worse than expected. netapp was downgraded over a possible cell outlook. let's look at the stoxx 600, down 3%, the worst month since may, underperforming in the u.s. guy: it has not been a great month. breaking news of the last couple of minutes.
10:16 am
the irish prime minister departing liverpool back onto dublin. he said he and boris johnson after their meeting, can see a pathway to a possible deal. that is the reaction in sterling , the british pound rising up by 4/10 of 1%, 1.2260. let's talk about the dollar side. robert kaplan released a detailed essay on what is wrong with the u.s. economy and what he thinks the fed's next moves should be. bloomberg spoke with him exclusively about where he sees growth heading. our forecast for this year, for the second half is 1.7%. maybe it will be in that neighborhood for 2020. i am not sure what we see that will make it better.
10:17 am
most businesses i talk to you want to stay nimble and realize there could be new policy pronouncements any time, and with that amount of uncertainty, they are not cutting back their business, but they are putting new projects on hold. the other thing they are doing is watching carefully if there is a broader slowing, and if there is a slowing in the consumer, they are on their toes that they will take further action. that would cause a further slowing. ,e are in a fragile period which is why i am glad the fed has taken some action, but this could go either way. we can avert a more severe slow down, but the jury is out. michael: in the minutes, you got a report on what happened with repo just a day or two before you met and you did not discuss what to do. the chairman said you reached
10:18 am
decisions and would move forward. did you have a conference call in between? mr. kaplan: i will not disclose things that have not been publicly disclosed, other than to say at the time of the fomc meeting in september, we announced these daily repo facilities and for people who were listening, what that does is help distribute a repo across the system. if big banks are not lending their reserves in the overnight funding markets, a standing repo facility has the purpose of getting rid of those frictions. we have been doing that every day. we are having more deliberations. we will be making some announcements in the very near butre, not just about repo about increasing the size of the balance sheet in a way that improves the reserve levels, especially in light of increased
10:19 am
u.s. treasury issuance, tax payments, and other frictions we are seeing. we believe and i believe there is a need to do repo and increase the size of the balance sheet, in order to raise the reserve levels. we have lost reserves since early september mainly because of taxpaying incentives and treasury issuance. michael: jay powell said you are not allowed to finish your interviews without saying, it is not qe. mr. kaplan: it is correct that is not the case, because we are just buying bills. has been buying securities out along the curve in order to lower those term rates in order to incentivize mortgage lending and risk-taking . this will be just related to bills and primarily targeted at overnight funding markets, and
10:20 am
making sure we can appropriately set the fed funds rate in the target range. kaplan, that was robert president of the dallas federal reserve and michael mckee joining us from dallas. a pretty interesting interview. what is your main takeaway with regards to, are we getting a better sense on whether the fed will meet the market's expectations or will the market have to meet the fed's expectations? michael: before the last two fed meetings, the market priced in a rate cut and the fed ratified what they were seeing, but we are seeing a little bit of pushback that even though the markets see an 85% chance of a fed move, he and perhaps some others want to see more evidence the economy needs a rate cut before they go forward. it may be by the end of the year that it does, but it might be
10:21 am
worthwhile, kaplan suggested, sitting back and looking at what previous moves have done to the economy. jobless claims fell to the territory they have been for a long time, no indication in the labor market of weakness. if perhaps the iso numbers were one-off, it might be worthwhile waiting in october and being prepared to move in december. it is still a question. romaine: thanks to michael mckee. trade talksl u.s. kick off today, we will dig in the details with kyle bass. he will talk about china trade, the dollar, and other topics. from new york and london, this is bloomberg. ♪

10:25 am
we have had. there was demand for low vol funds, but the demand is so strong this year compared to last year. that is more than three times any other year, so the demand this year is much stronger than historically. romaine: how big have the low vol funds become? is there concern about performance? >> when you look at global u.s. and europe and put the low-volume etf's together, it starts to bring up interesting questions. i am not saying etf's are not billed to handle that -- built to handle that, but the etf is the tip of the iceberg. there are active funds and want funds beneath these. these funds are getting so much larger than they ever been.

10:32 am
today. he doesn't like the fact that a lot of countries from egypt and saudi arabia, to u.s. and the european powers, are criticizing turkey for what erdogan says is his right to go after terrorist organizations in a neighboring country. i think the word invasion itself has really touched a nerve, and he was very specific. he said if european powers to describe this as an inpatient, he will open the doors and not try to stop 3.6 million refugees, syrian refugees currently in turkey, from seeking shelter in europe in the west. romaine: there's been a lot of criticism already. let's not lose sight of the fact turkey is a nato ally, so a lot of the criticisms are coming from countries that militarily, turkey is supposed to be aligned with. how much pressure do you think some of those allies are going to give on erdogan, presuming
10:33 am
this threat he makes good on? it really is going pathefine what kind of turkey will find itself on, vis-a-vis its nato and european allies. we saw in the west, trump came under severe criticism from people that used to be seen as his strongest allies in the congress, such as senator lindsey graham. in europe, the dynamic is different. the leaders may really not like what turkey is doing in northern syria, no matter how turkey things about the military operation, but when it comes to the refugee issue, things tend to change. sort15 and 2016, it was a of crisis moment between turkey and europe because of all the refugees trying to cross turkish borders, and some of them did. it did result in a transformation of the political
10:34 am
sentiment and fabric in many european countries. people like germany's angela merkel came under a lot of pressure because of her open-door policy. this is a very explosive subject for european states, and erdogan knows he's got good leverage over his european peers when it comes to refugees. guy: the long-term damage could be absolutely enormous. is that why stocks are trading down? is that why bond yields are moving as much as they are today? onur: turkish assets have been hit ready badly. -- hit pretty badly. they may not be as closely linked to the threat about eu and the refugees as much as the threat of punitive action out of washington, as reported earlier. andsenator lindsey graham his allies in the congress co-authored a bill that could result in some sort of sanctions against turkish institutions
10:35 am
should american lawmakers go down that road, and that is really hitting the sentiment in turkey right now. romaine: as far as the fighting going on there right now, some of the images we are seeing, can you give us a sense of how deep into the border, across either border, on the turkish side or the syrian side, we are seeing this type of violence? onur: sure. just to give you a sort of perspective on the size of this operation, turkey wants to create the buffer zone along its northeastern -- it's border with northeastern syria. it's more than 400 kilometers long and about 30 kilometers in depth, about 20 miles. and turkeye area, already made turkish aircraft start hitting points across the border on several locations
10:36 am
across the really long border, so you can imagine this is a very big military deployment that will involve tens of thousands of turkish troops. we estimate the number to be around 55,000, in addition to islamist syrian rebels that are allies with turkeys. guy: we will leave it there. thanks for the update. onur ant joining us out of the stumble. romaine: mean but -- out of istanbul. romaine: meanwhile in washington, president trump facing more heat for persuading rex secretary of state a case tofor dropping help a client of rudy giuliani. there is a sense here that really giuliani has become the focal point of a lot of this impeachment inquiry.
10:37 am
what do we specifically know about what giuliani's response was to that apparent request? reporter: there was a great quote in the story you mentioned where rudy giuliani was basically like, so what? maybe i did bring this up. what's so wrong about that? that seems to really reveal the attitude of not only president trump come but his associates -- president trump, but his associates like rudy giuliani, that they don't understand why this behavior is wrong. that seems to be the crux of the impeachment argument, with the same evidence in regards to the phone call with the ukrainian president in july, and democrats are saying it is very clearly an impeachable offense with the material we have in public, and the president is saying it was a perfect phone call. how could you even criticize that? we see the same dynamic playing out with this rex tillerson conversation, where rudy giuliani is like, what is so wrong about it? guy: where does that leave
10:38 am
republicans? where does that leave the rank-and-file people on the hill? what is their view of all of this? is there any sign at this point that they are starting to maybe have second thoughts? anna: two reasons why it shows r from president and his associates that it was not just an isolated incident with the ukrainian president, where president trump was trying to put pressure for political or personal gain. this could have been a pattern with other leaders and other associates. the other reason is that this story is directly related to turkey because the client that rudy giuliani had was a turkish national, and had relations to president erdogan. so it is very interesting to see how some republicans have shown extreme discomfort with president trump's conversation with erdogan sunday, and which he seemed to allow turkey to begin this invasion into syria. to the extent that we have more
10:39 am
information about president trump's relationship with foreign leaders that is based on business ties or personal affection, and that influences foreign policy, that is something that is going to start making republicans very nervous. romaine: a whole cast of characters in this. two more names i now have to memorize that acted to rudy giuliani. two people arrested this morning. what can you tell us about them? anna: these people were called to testify in congress, and their attorney had said they will not show up for the deposition that was supposed to take behind closed doors this week. the fact that they have now been isested for other crimes definitely a very important development because while they might not be able to show up to congress for their deposition, they are now going to have to answer other questions in a , and that could come to bear on the impeachment investigation in the house of representatives. guy: where does this all leave nancy pelosi? is she going to pull the trigger on the formal investigation?
10:40 am
is she going to take the bait from the president? anna: she has a few different copulations she is trying to figure out. on the one hand, if they did put a formal impeachment inquiry vote on the floor, it would just be a house resolution. it wouldn't have any binding impact on what is happening already. but that would take away one of ste republicans' stronge talking points, that there has not been an open boat on this inquiry. on the other hand, she might be concerned about some moderate democrats that aren't quite ready to take a vote on impeachment and put their name forward as someone who supports at least the inquiry. there aren't actually that many members that are in that position, so politically, i don't think it is as troublesome as republicans seem to think it is, but she is going to have to be careful about the strategy from here on out because that will affect how the eventual results of articles of impeachment in the floor are received by the american public. romaine: our thanks to bloomberg's anna edgerton in washington.

carrier, down over 4% today despite beating third quarter estimates as fourth-quarter guidance left a bit to be desired. this is not a 737 customer, remember. abigail doolittle has all the details. abigail: what makes it so interesting, you were talking about how they cut the outlook because they did beat third quarter estimates. the outlook for earnings for the fourth quarter coming in a little bit short, or possibly a lot short, when you look at the bottom of the range. this has everything to do with rising costs. interestingly, they are not a carrier that uses that 77 max come about the spillover from max, but the7 spillover from that caused seat costs to go up. they are saying it could be a full 1% above their 2% growth. what happened here was, again, planes were grounded for other airlines. that caused other passengers to use their planes. they weren't prepared, so they
10:45 am
