10:00 am
betty: good morning. here is what we are watching at this hour. it is jobs friday and the numbers are good. they are better than good. they are great. unemployment falling to its lowest levels since 2008. is is the number that will get the fed to raise rates finally. the first and 10 years. we will get the answer from mohamed el-erian. us, opening up to bloomberg about he is planning to revive the hardware business. he says more acquisitions are to come. we are about half an hour until the trading session and it would look in the market desk where julie hyman has the latest. we were up and now we've turned quite a bit lower. julie: quite a bit lower.
10:01 am
it seems as though the question of whether the fed will raise rates in december already seems to have been answered by the market, at least for today. when you look at stocks but across the asset classes the interpretation of today's data seems to be that the federal reserve is now more likely than ever to raise rates in december. that is putting pressure to some extent on stocks today. all three major averages are down. look at the bloomberg terminal so he can dig more deeply and with the sectors. financials are in the green because there seems to be this perception, that is cecily -- especially for regional banks, it will not be a bad thing. interest margins improving. utilities as the worst performing groups because higher rates tend to push down utilities. we have energy level along with -- lower along with oil prices. about the rising expectations for the fed we have
10:02 am
to look at fed funds futures. wirp. we are now at 70% in terms of the chances of being priced into the market for december rate increases. the incredible surge we have seen ever since the fed's statement just a week ago. we've seen such a rapid change in expectation. it also is evidenced in the bond market. click at treasuries. the 2-year note is seeing its yielded the highest and -- since 2010. is the highest since july for the 10 year. both of them surging in the wake of this report. off to currencies. the dollar has been strengthening in the wake of this. strengthening person the japanese yen and the euro and the pound falling versus the dollar. gold prices heading sharply as well. down by 1.3%. row weseventh day in a have seen lower gold prices.
10:03 am
betty: thank you so much. juliet the markets desk. let's check in on the news this morning. bonnie has morphed the news desk. bonnie: they want to serve the details. surging by the most this year in october. wage growth accelerated in the jobless rate down to 5%. that could be the senate labor market durability that policy are looking for as they consider a boosted borrowing. -- boost in borrowing. all000 jobs exceeded expectations in the bloomberg survey. more on that jobs report in a moment with betty in michael mckee. russian president putin has agreed to a recommendation to ask that -- stop all russian feisty egypt. the russian intelligence agency said it would be quote reasonable" to in-flight.

10:05 am
today's robust labor report much stronger than expected. pretty much blew past any economist's estimates. a compelling case for the fed you raise rates at the meeting next month. here is how bill gross puts it. bill: i cap related that any jobs never over 150,000 would be sufficient. the fed these the economy and future inflation through the phillips curve that speaks to low unemployment that is somewhere around 525% -- 5.25%. i think they are ready to go. betty: is the fed ready to go? should you cancel your vacation plans to sever 16 because you might have to be at your desk on that day. mike mckee with me. you don't even have to make of these calculations to say what
10:06 am
bill gross is saying. it looks like we're looking for lift off, right? it's not going to be 100% into ligety november jobs report but we should probably wait to see if anything around the rest of the world comes up. nobody anticipated china in august selling off september. if things continue as they are right now, the fed will raise rates on december 16. they have told us they want to and they were watching the data come in as expected. nasa's unemployment but with wages rising it could make a plausible case. betty: double the estimates on wages. how did we all get it so wrong? mike: i don't think it was wrong as much as the economy was giving us mixed signals. there are some good things happening and bad things happening in the us harder to tell, particularly when you have an economy that is not growing very fast. the villas are not as great. if we were at percent growth and had fallen to 1%, you would say the economy was in a real
10:07 am
slowdown and we should watch the that. -two .5% month after month, quarter after quarter, it's not giving us a lot of signals so everybody is parsed from the month-to-month data. the bloomberg terminal function, we look at it time and time again. what traders are pricing in. we don't think too much attention to the actual number but the trend, we were at 56% yesterday and now we are at 70% for the december move? mike: that tells you what you are seeing reflected in the market. the two-year pitted 93 point basis move. that was about 62 weeks ago. -- 60 two weeks ago. the markets have reacted to the data that suggests it is supportive of a move and we are pricing in right now a 25 basis point increase. you will have a 1% to year going
10:08 am
into that meeting and it will go a little bit from there so markets and overreact. is -- interest rates are going up. betty: if this was the greenspan said we would be halfway to 3.5% normal rates right now." mike: maybe. he sat on his hands in the late 1990's and did not do anything because he thought we could get some sort of additional growth without inflation from technology. it's hard to say that is true. what is really interesting is we have gone into a world that maybe does not compare. everybody is trying to say is this like 1994 when the fed started and said it would be very gentle going up? 2004 when we were anticipating 17 straight months of 25 basis point moves? this could be the fed is insisting it will be a much slower or shallower path.
10:09 am
they have some room to do it because inflation is so low. even if they overshoot a little, it will not be a disaster. we are not looking at a 17% inflation rate as were during 6%-7%lcker days or even a inflation rate as it were in 1994. they can afford to the a bit more patient. betty: what about the labor force participation rate? that dropped slightly in this last month. a job and say be you're looking for some sort of an argument about why you might want to hold up a little bit, could you look at that for instance? mike: you would be a dove really, really looking for something. labor force participation is a source of a lot of debate. the consensus is this is the tail end of the baby boom. all these people are setting to retire out of the labor force. it is largely demographics. there is a pool of people out there who have retired they could be lured back into work.
10:10 am
we saw that dynamic in the 1990's. we were down to 3% unemployment rates because a lot of retired people said i can think of a little bit of money at walmart. re: going to see that again? that's an open question. alix said maybe not. where at a point now those people are largely out of the labor force. rising wages won't necessarily lower the backend. -- lure them back in. betty: much more on bloomberg television with this job report. how will that play out in the rest of the world? bloomberg businessweek takes a special in-depth look at the global economic outlook and how the next year shape up. what countries are leading the way in the most important variables in 2016? ♪

10:16 am
it could be the real number was lower than that but you have to take it you get. we don't have better data than this. let's take it for what it is for now. 2016, for next year in did you ask people about what they see for the jobs numbers -- the jobless rate? peter: we looked at bloomberg's survey of economists before the report came out they were looking for average on women rates in 2016 of 4.9%. under 5% already. i would not be surprised after december comes out the further revise and see numbers down in 4.8% or something. a really strong numbers. in 2016? let's start with the country that matters the most. i suspect it will be china. peter: let's start with china because it's always uncertain. it varies more.
10:17 am
it fell below 7% for the first time. people are talking the international monetary fund about 6.3% growth for china next year. you hear people using numbers even lower than that. that will be the big? -- question mark. u.s., germany, china. u.s., were looking for the mid 3's. the world economy as a whole is 3's number.id the u.s. is down in the 2's. -- highs around five 1's or 2. it's growth comes from exporting and therefore kind of using its

it's very different but we are all in the 3's here. peter: the bloomberg survey of economists is where we get that number. betty: 3.8%. the lowest as the world bank at 3.3%. peter: i would make too much of that because these different ways of measuring. the imf number tends to be slightly higher. that is kind of trivia that the wonks talk about. betty: that gets them excited. peter, great to see you and thank you for bringing this to us. just a reminder you have got it here and we haven't there. -- have it there. staying on the global economy, don't forget to tune in tonight for bloomberg's exclusive conversation with bank of england governor mark carney.

it stands for privilege and privacy. the selling point is that you will get more of both using this then you will using an android device or an iphone. business customer still use the blackberry. is he targeting the business user? yes, the person concerned about productivity and they were hoping with the introduction of the most recent smart phones that apps were not going to matter, that security and privacy were enough of a killer app that people would be willing to forgo the functionality on their business phone and keep it on their personal device. they found that's not the case of they had to go into the android world because ios would not let them in. the question is what kind of sales volume they can generate. generate sales via him in this world with apple

from bloomberg world headquarters in new york, good morning, i'm betty liu. this is what we are watching. it is jobs day in america. payroll surged the most this year and wage growth accelerated in the jobless rate stands at 5%. we will talk exclusively to mom and el-erian who is following -- to mohammed el-erian who is following this. this had all the right notes on three factors that matter in this labor report. deutsche bank is shrinking its footprint. is the era of the global bank over? not the way you would think and we will explain. news on theking keystone pipeline. julie hyman has the latest. journal"he wall street
11:01 am
reports that the obama administration will reject a trans canada proposed xl pipeline. set to speakma is at 11:45 a.m. we will presumably get more details if that is the announcement he will make. looking at the markets, we see a mixed picture and have been ever since we got the job or it. toestors seem to be trying figure out if we are seeing a better economy and what that will mean for the fed and what that will mean for stocks. looking at the terminal, you can see how it's playing out with financials the best performers on the perception that if there are higher rates and a yield curve that that will be better for margins but utilities are getting hit sharp late, down 3.7%. they moved down when yields move up and we have a lot of selling elsewhere. the big banks are gaining a lot today.
11:02 am
jpmorgan, bank of america, citigroup are up at least 3% on the latest job numbers. if you look at the other asset classes, you can see how the job report is playing out. we've got oil prices trending lower today. we have then on a recent losing streak for oil. pressureocks are under counterbalancing the gains in big cap banks. betty: it's not just the higher rate pushing down stocks? julie: utility stocks in particular tend to be sensitive to the rates. we have disappointing earnings reports coming from the large utility. duke energy came out and cut its forecast because of flooding in north and south caroline and the effect a had on just that had on earnings. con edison in new york, we did
11:03 am
not have flooding and these which isissed and oge in oklahoma also came out and missed estimates. you have that and what's going on in the bond market. this is a chart we brought up reiterating what we had. , the tenure climbs in particular come utility stocks are moving down and we tend to have this inverse relationship. utility stocks is a group are the second worst-performing group this year following energy shares. just on that breaking news about the keystone pipeline, the low oil prices the obama administration permission to reject the pipeline if that's what we are going to hear. don't forget the president will be holding an announcement at 11:45 a.m. let's start with the first word news. just receiving word from
11:04 am
the white house that the president and secretary of state, john kerry, will make a statement at 11:45 a.m. eastern after mr. obama meets with john kerry in the oval office. the administration will reject the keystone xl oil pipeline. this comes days after the administration rejected a request by transcanada to delay a decision on its application for the pipeline. presumably, both are related and we will have live coverage of the residents statement when it happens right here on bloomberg market. russia is stopping airline service to egypt while the crash of a russian airliner is investigated. president vladimir off on the decision today. the plaintiff crashed saturday in egypt, pieces of wreckage are being checked for traces of explosives. weather may have been a factor in a bus crash killed in arkansas last night.

it was still foggy after a heavy rain. october was the strongest month this year for payroll. 271 thousand jobs were created in the can make the federal reserve lsu makers think the economy is strong enough for an interest rate increase this year. 5% unemployment rate fell to and growth in wages was the best in nearly six years. that's a look at our first word news. you can get more 24 hours per day at the new bloomberg.com. betty: thank you. u.s. employment surged to a high this year, boosting the economy optimism but speculation rises over the december fed hike it what does this mean for the market question mark stocks are sliding today which is putting the brakes on the rally. bring our bloomberg economist and mike reagan.
11:06 am
markettart with the reaction? why are we down? >> there is a lot of yield proxy stocks. you were talking about utilities and even real estate investment trusts and master limited partnerships. not so much the energy limited partnerships but they have been a big driver of the bull market in recent years and months because the hunt for yield was so great. it is coming off a little there is the regional ranks etf exploding today, at the highest and's 2007. the net interest margin is good especially for regional banks. that is their primary business model as opposed to jpmorgan or bank of america. the market seemed comfortable with the prospects of a december increase. quitebviously not
11:07 am
comfortable to get past the 2100 level especially now when you look at the numbers so strong. it seems that we are not just talking about a december rate increase but also pushing the needle on all the forward months , the slope of the projected fed funds rate is now higher not just in december but next year. betty: is that a possibility? i thought it was one and done? >> that it certainly will be that way for 2015. i think we will see a slower fed than what they are signaling. are the markets the markets tend to overshoot. we see that reflected in the fed funds futures market today. clearly, this is a solid report from the unemployment rate. aggregated income through the diffusion of job creation and average earnings, very few pockets of weakness. this is the validation the fed 2015 to declare liftoff in
11:08 am
which has been a long-standing goal. this will be good news for them. betty: we were able to get at least one fed president reaction, jim bullard spoke moments after the job report came out. he has been wanting a rate hike. let's play what he said. >> the unemployment rate has fallen faster than the fomc expected. this morning it's at 5%. the 5% is not very different from what the fomc thinks the longer run value should be. betty: is that true? a it has been falling at surprisingly steady pace come about one percentage point per year which means it's on the cusp of blowing through the feds year-end projections and the fed is expecting the unemployment rate to reach a soft landing, about 4.8%, which is their target for the next three years. it looks like the him employment rate is on a course to move sharply through that which could
11:09 am
mean more wage inflation as a result and could leave the fed to reassess. when you see the increase in hourly earnings like we saw today, that's a boards the notion that they curve is not broken, it's just bent relative to past cycles and we are getting close to full employment. you saw this jobs report cause the dollar to spike. what about that factor for earnings? >> the dollar will be on the front of everyone's mind. also with the ripple effects will be. will china considered the valuing again. ? the best reaction i have seen so was a stake in the heart of the vampire of deflation. i don't know if that's too strong. is that number as important or more important than the headline
11:10 am
jobs number? that was a strong number on wages. that's what everyone is waiting for. >> i would not say it's more important. the payroll number tells us about overall level of activity in the economy and that will tell is what ultimately happens to the inflation trend. there is evidence of a little wage pressure. it's relevant but i would not say it dominates the payroll gain. betty: thank you so much. president obama and secretary of state john kerry are expected to make a statement about the keystone xl oil pipeline at 11:45 a.m. eastern time. they are expected to announce they are rejecting this project. i want to get to phil manning late. you have now confirmed this to be true? >> that's correct, according to edmunds nation officials, president obama will announce

11:12 am
president himself, they have thought this issue was overblown. they thought this turned into two big of a political issue, surrounded by hot rhetoric and not a lot of facts. is president's rationale this will be related to the urgency on climate change. that has always been his bar as to whether he would approve or reject this deal. the state department itself has released a reap or over the last couple of years that said the impact would be somewhat minimal. thatresident has decided the urgency is too great on climate change. that is the issue that will prevail and that's why he will reject the keystone xl pipeline. i am told that secretary john kerry in the rugged meeting will be officially recommending that the president reject this.

11:18 am
that has had an impact on tourism particularly here in the riches of products here. how worried are you about that headwind? >> tourism has become important factor in our business. a lot of the customers by her products by them while traveling. in europe, we have a large influx of asian travelers thanks to the lower euro. we have more and more asian or american tourists in europe. in the u.s., it is less positive because it makes traveling to the u.s. more expensive for most people. it makes tourism more difficult. tourismou spoke about out of asia. we know chinese tourists by a lot of ultra luxury goods and in the last few months or so, we have seen a slowdown in the number of chinese tourists that

11:34 am
aberration is what happened previously. if you look at the path of job creation, they have been really steady. the annual average has come down. you would expect that as we create more and more jobs. it has been steady and consistent healing. that is the constant story. wages are finally moving. wages to movect because slack is being taken out of the labor market. betty: is there some concern that now we have finally seen wages pick up it could get out of control? mohamed: i don't think it gets out of control. i think you get a slight pickup and wages. we are not anywhere near getting out of control. there is too much competition out there for it to get out of control.

11:37 am
?o you see that happening or are most going to miss their inflation targets? mohamed: most will miss their targets. they will succeed in clipping the downside of deflation. are going to be unintended consequences of that. i think that the market is going about significant deflation, but it is going to have to worry a lot more about the unintended consequences of very divergent monetary policy around the world. betty: we will bring you back to talk about what is happening more around the world. keystone pipeline news is happening in just a few moments. u.s. bondon the market, you did see this enormous spike in treasury yields on the shorter end of the curve. is that something the fed is
11:38 am
going to have to worry about? mohamed: no, this is a natural consequence of the fact that it is highly likely that we will have the first rate hike in almost 10 years. what is interesting is if you look at the forward rates, the market is correctly anticipating a very gradual path of rate hikes and a terminal points that can be lower than historical averages. with the fed's seating is consistent with what it is likely to see. what it is going to be worried about is excessive volatility. it will worry about spill back to the united states. el-erian, the former pimco ceo. we are monitoring the presidents upcoming comments on the keystone pipeline. that is a live picture right now

11:42 am
and now that argument got kicked back from under them. what would be the impact of not building this pipeline? mohamed: the macro impact would be limited. the oil markets have changed completely. changes a demand supply that suggest even lower prices, but the producer has shifted. the macro implications of this decision are much less than what they would have been in the past. the company-specific implications are significant. i think the biggest message to investors is that noncommercial and non-economic issues are important, especially in this political environment and it is a reminder to markets that they need to extend beyond the usual economic and commercial analyses to include these other factors. they are going to become more important. is not immune to these noncommercial considerations.
11:43 am
betty: that is absolutely true. the big consideration was higher oil prices. that is now gone. where do you see oil prices? mohamed: they are going to remain volatile because that is one of the two unhinged markets. it is going to take time for the market to reestablish its footing, particularly when it comes to supply responsiveness. , but priceskets will remain low for quite a while. betty: "bloomberg businessweek" is talking to various voices and asking for their predictions and some are predicting oil prices may not go up more than five dollars or seven dollars next year. does that sound right to you? mohamed: i would anticipate that majorg, absent any

economic disaster around the world, we will see oil in the $50 too low $60 range. people should expect a lot of volatility. we are not going back to $100 oil anytime soon. that going to impact oil-dependent countries? in particular china? mohamed: china is a big positive. for countries like china, like india, the fact that they are big oil importers, they are having a very favorable term of trade, so was europe. for the oil exporters, you are going to have two groups. one group of countries is going to be incredibly challenged and will be very close to an accident or a policy mistake. think of venezuela and russia. you have another set of countries that have built up enormous wealth, that are adjusting gradually to the lower

what it actually merited based on the economic and environmental impact it would have had. the president, and about five or 10 minutes, will officially reject the application from transcanada to build the keystone pipeline. delayanada attempted to their application a week ago. the reason expected was that they wanted to wait until 2017, maybe they would get a more friendly administration. the president, after his meeting he currently has with john kerry, will reject that application going forward. a seven-yeard to fight that has been brutal between business interests and environmentalists and it has caught the white house right in the middle, much to their chagrin. mark: justin trudeau has been in office just a minute, but he did

2012, in the midterms in 2014. they made it an issue on jobs and revenue. the attack will be full frontal on the white house, more or less, after this announcement. this was not just a chamber of commerce initiative, the labor unions also supported this. there is a rare combination where to entities that generally hate one another were together on this issue. the white house choosing to go the opposite direction on this issue and this aligns with what you have seen over the last couple months of the obama administration. this is a legacy issue for the president. this is one that he plans on making his last two years in office all about. you see the white house making moves on climate relations. this aligns with that.

the primary reason the president will announce his rejection of this proposal is on climate change grounds. have aause this would massive impact on the climate, but because he wants the urgency he wants people to grasp when it comes to climate change. it is a political issue that will likely not go anywhere anytime soon. this will likely only fuel republican complaints and criticism. it is one of the obama administration feels like they are on the right side of. mark: phil, thank you. let's now get a check of the noon inas we approach the eastern united states. julie hyman is standing by with the details. at whatet's take a look is going on with the major averages. we are still seeing a mixed picture. we have been fluctuating around quite a bit. to remakeare trying their investments based on what the fed may do.

be a silver bullet for the economy, as was promised by some nor the express lane to climate change promised -- climate disaster promised by others. some of thent on reasons why the state department rejected the pipeline. first, the pipeline would not make a meaningful long-term contribution to our economy. congress is serious about wanting to create jobs, this was not the way to do it. if they want to do it, what we should be doing is passing a bipartisan infrastructure plan that could create more than 30 times as many jobs per year as the pipeline would and, in the long run, would benefit our economy and our workers for decades to come. -- business has created businesses created 2.5 million
