gura. welcome to "bloomberg markets." we are covering stories from new york, vienna, and -- -- doubt000 watch 20,000 watch is still on today. trump'st-elect donald $6 million cabinet of mostly white men and men without much government experience. we will look at the experience the cabinet will have to policy and to congress. the latest report on why the economy and markets have unmarked -- and bark on a journey he calls "unknown." just: art we all journeying into the unknown. we have the majors higher today and as david said, we are approaching 20,000, but we are further away than we were a
12:01 pm
couple days ago when we were within 50 points out that level. now we are still around 80 points away at this point in time. the s&p and the nasdaq are rallying in the wake of the said most -- in the wake of the fed. we have treasury yields at the highest in about two years. seeps into a lot of strength in financial. that is the best performing group. the telecom stocks are also higher. they have been mostly interest rate sensitive. estatels higher, real often tends to be real estate sensitive, is a little bit lower in the session. not only are financials the best performing group, but this is gm move. financials are accounting for 49% of the gain indy s&p 500 because -- in the s&p 500 because of their waiting.
12:02 pm

12:03 pm
story for this fire. that is julie hyman at the bloomberg markets desk. let's check in on bloomberg first word news. courtney: representative ryan think -- ryan think he -- ryan zinke is the pic for secretary of the interior. confirmed, he would oversee policy on a range of issues including federal land usage, national parks, and fish and wildlife issues. senate democrats have unveiled legislation to require donald trump to sell his businesses and put all of his assets in a blind trust. among the lead sponsors, elizabeth warren who said the public needs assurances that donald trump will "do what is best for the country, not using his office to do what is best for himself and his businesses."

12:05 pm
and stocks rebounding. gold is getting clobbered after a more aggressive path was announced for rate hikes. joining us is david, let's talk sincehe euro, the lowest 2003. what is your reaction to that and how does that change her position? zervos: i think the post trump world has been a sure wrong dollar world and we have been focused more on the dollar-yen more than dollar- euro. we think capping at zero creates feedback from crosscourt -- for cross quarter lows from yen to dollar. we have been focused on the trumper dollar in a post world because of the changes and expected real returns on capital that come from less regulation and lower taxes.
12:06 pm
and a bit of infrastructure spending. really it is higher after-tax earnings and less regulation which is good for capital. 118.20 on thes yen. is koroda rubbing his hands in glee? zervos:rvice: -- david i think he is happy. inis what we saw august and august 2015 15 -- and january 2016. it prompted us to believe there january.cord in with the trump a court -- election, that a court is gone and we see room for the dollar. david: the swiss national bank this morning and us with meeting next week.
12:07 pm
zervos: the boj is pretty happy with what is -- the way things are going. this will get them closer to inflation targets. the dollar swiss i think was above 102 or 103. kindnk it is all systems of stable into the holiday season, no surprises from anybody. is doing heavy lifting for the europeans, the swiss, the japanese and the nerf point nerve pointt -- will be the gm which was protected by the soft the dollar nowement pre-trump, but is uncovered is a flash point in the post trump world. vonnie: you have been an advocate of qe. is the federal reserve doing the right thing haven't risen another 25 basis points and
12:08 pm
signaling almost three increases next year? dump the many to animal spirits that may be awoken? mr. zervos: i think the fed did the right thing. they will have to be clearer in the next quarter what the response is to this fiscal change and that will be tricky piecemealey will get stories coming in of what is going to be done on taxes, what would be done on spending, and what would be done on deregulation. i think they need to present the market with some scenarios if the tax rate goes down to 15%, if income tax rates go down the way the trump team has suggested, if there are border taxes come if there are other changes on the regulatory side. a run the models, tell us what it means. is the interest rate consistent with price stability? 2017it need to go up in
12:09 pm
-2018 more than they are ready have? i think the answer will be yes if the plans go to fruition and that will put political pressure on the fed. they will be a buzz kill on the party the market seems to want to put in place to celebrate higher real returns. david: yesterday i was struck by the fact that janet yellen took the opportunity to talk about how some of her colleagues were taking note of the fact there is this conversation about fiscal policy happening right now. what she didn't discuss is the potential risk of new tariffs from trade and the fact there could be real weight on the economy in 2017. was that a missed opportunity to not big into that more? mr. zervos: potentially because it takes the heat off of them. given the pivot we have seen from the trump administration away from those very aggressive trade stories that were out there pre-election, i think it is fair to really focus on what
12:10 pm
the market is focusing on, which is the incredibly large tax cuts , the large fiscal stimulus on spending, and the deregulation. at a 4.6 unemployment -- 4.6% unemployment is very important for the fed. you were talking about a fed that was running the economy hot and will now see a new punch bowl with maybe a new set of punch and they will have to figure o how to get the punch out of the party without upsetting the party too much and i think that could create a lot of spilled punch before all is said and done. vonnie: this punch analogy is continuing. i love it. the five year yield is that 2.09. tell us what you see. mr. zervos: i think the market reacted pretty well to what janet did. i thought she was hawkish. i thought her disavowing of the
12:11 pm
some like it hot idea that she was pushing in boston was a surprise to many and suggests we have a janet yellin who is concerned about inflation and maybe some of the skewed effects inflation might have on the less educated and the poorer distributions. i think we have to be careful labeling janet a complete dove. the large-scale move we saw in the forecast for the fed funds rate out two or three years is warranted and that is the place where the curve will see the most volatility and the ratcheting higher. my expectation is for a flatten or. i think some of these forces, like the cross-border flow will keep a lid on the long end and it is interesting the 30 year yields did not move much yesterday. i think that bear flattening tow. is intel -- in
12:12 pm

12:16 pm
trump is building a cabinet in his own image. many nominees have little government experience and are worth millions of dollars. joining us from our washington bureau with more on trump's picks is ben brody. we have graphics of the cabinet picks and what they represent in -- s of white male >> rich. vonnie: and so forth. what does that tell us about how they may govern? ben: -- trumpre in the mold of himself. he did not have relationships in washington or know which people you need to court or who has close toicy thing their heart and that may be the case with a lot of these businessmen. they are mostly men. they may be able to go in there and make relationships and they may be able to work as they did
12:17 pm
sort of in their business careers before. congress, at the ian did -- end of the day, works on relationships, the back patting and handshaking goes on here in the sea and they may not be as familiar with the players. david: he picked the number of former military people. what is that say about the leadership here? ben: donald trump has made no secret of the fact that he admires the u.s. military and there are things he wants to do to reform it and he has sort of insulted military leaders. that is trump speak for i respect them and want to bring them in. he likes this toughness and manliness and was not put off by the idea that traditions of american government normally do not put that many people in uniform or recently in uniform at the top of the cabinet. presumably, he is not worried about that and is willing to
12:18 pm
bring them in and continue that style amongst his closest advisers. vonnie: does that kind of appointment speak to your most trusted followers, your voters? ben: certainly a lot of the people who voted for trump definitely view to the military is one of the last sort of u.s. institutions they really trust. certainly the press is out. washington, d.c. is out, congress is out, in some cases even religion is out. military often tends to be the one military -- u.s. institution people hold onto. it appeals to the core, white working-class voters that put trump over the edge. david: we saw donald trump responding on twitter to allegations there was russian hacking. what he have to say? ben: he basically said if the white house. it was real they should have brought it up before the election and -- instead of once quintin -- clinton won.

12:23 pm
the high as they go through first six months. the process beginning from january 1 would be small due to operational and logistical problems, but the high level of commitment and resolve by all 24 participating countries in this agreement, which is historic, is a very incredible agreement and very transparent and with a high level of commitment. 90%, 80%, 100%? can you help me quantify? mr. barkindo: this committee will be meeting regularly. we will probably have an integral meeting this january to work out the modus operandi of

insuring a very high level of compliance and i am very satisfied with what i am getting from all the participating countries, the first of its kind. 24 countries that are presenting almost 60% of global supplies coming of their own volition to enter into this agreement in order to restore stability in the market. alix: two points analysts are highlighting, the first is that the cut wouldrds not even meet the target. in addition, you have more oil from libya and nigeria. how do you manage that in a world of cuts? mr. barkindo: it is a very flexible and realistic agreement. alix: does opec need to cut more to offset nigeria? mr. barkindo: the cut of 1.2

the scope to abigail doolittle. assetl: when we go across class, interesting is the fact there is not truly a risk on or off theme to the trading today. we obviously have strength and we are back on doubt 20,000 watch. commodity is lower. taking a look at the bloomberg dollar index at record highs. some may consider this to be a signal of growth for the u.s., is as may say the strength sign of safety. clear sign is the u.s. 10-year yield up 10 basis point and what is the fact that we had the bloomberg dollar index hit 2.64%, the highest level since 2014. one question could be whether or not that is a knee-jerk reaction
12:33 pm
on the part of investors. we have a terrific chart. probably my favorite chart right now coming from vincent #gtb 2366.be on top in blue we have the 10 year yield. basically inflation expectations for five years after five years. expectations between 2022 and 2027 and vincent cigna wrote us as historically -- vincent cignarella has -- says historically swap leads. we see this as pretty reliable. the 10-year yield is popping up and it could suggest we will see the 10-year yield perhaps move back down closer to 2%. perhaps supporting it is a look at the dollar. we looked at this chart -- g --y g #btb 5340
12:34 pm
btb 5340. we have box to the areas well it -- where it is well be -- above the 200 day moving average telling us investors perhaps are above of -- ahead of themselves. this could suggest we could see the dollar index moved back down to the 200 day moving average, supporting the idea that rates may move back down. we had the good opportunity to host or moderate a panel with three or the best technical out of there. bullish on the dollar. they agreed that in the near-term we could see consolidation. it is sort of interesting to see the big move up with the possibility of a move lower. taking a look at commodities on
12:35 pm
the year, really amazing here. the fact that commodities on the year -- actually the board is not coming up so i will toss back to you. vonnie: thank you for that. david: come with us on a journey into the unknown. our tour guide. on that journey there could be a lot to see, a donald trump presidency, brexit, more trouble for the chinese currency. he even made a mixture -- mix tape from our -- for our trip. great to see you. let's start with the transitions you outlook -- outlined in your outlook for 2017. transitionse sweet are really the drivers of the outlook and we think the outlook is highly uncertain. that is why it is titled into the unknown.
12:36 pm
there are scenarios possible made by how much markets are romancing the outcome. it is important to focus on these three transitions of that will determine the outlook. the first is the transition from military policy is the only game in town to fiscal policy. the question is how much fiscal boost will we get and how will central banks respond and that is pretty uncertain. the second transition is also crucial from globalization, which has been the story for the past few years to de-globalization. there is uncertainty over how much protection people will get and that will determine the theook and that defines left tail of the distribution. then there is a third tricky transition, the one in china regime and will probably move to something like a management or even a
12:37 pm
free-floating and the question is how much devaluation will we get over the next six-12 months and that will depend on the policies that will get enacted by the trump administration. -- on: you made mention my bloomberg you can see the spread has narrowed. something to do with the federal reserve come everything is connected now. why is the treasury market not looking for higher inflation further out in the 30-year area? hasfels: i think the market priced in higher inflation. that was the big move after the election. we are getting now little bit of a relapse in inflation expectations after the big widening in breakeven rates. i think this is a temporary relapse. we still think inflation is
12:38 pm
headed higher. almost any scenario you can imagine for u.s. economic policies going forward, either you get a big fiscal boost or protectionist boosts or a connection of the two, both would tend to raise inflation. i think one of the strongest is that inflation is headed higher and driven by what we expect from economic policy. david: there is a prospect for fiscal stimulus. let's see what janet yellin had to say. >> i would say at this point that fiscal policy is not obviously needed to provide stimulus to help us get back to full employment. you hear her talking about the difficulty of forecasting what the fiscal stimulus would look like. mr. dhillon: i think -- mr. fels: i think the way we look at
12:39 pm
this is to think in different scenarios. in this environment you do not want to make a big bet on one specific assumption about fiscal -- policy. we are assuming something like 1.5 trillion dollar fiscal package, this is less than what the trump administration has been proposing. wherecussed a scenario you get a bigger boost, $2.5 trillion over the boost, $2.5 trillion over the next 10 years. in that scenario, if we would get that boost on top of the situation where the economy is already at full employment as janet yellin was indicating yesterday, in that scenario you could even see inflation going to 3% in the course of next year and you might get far right rate hikes. that is something you have to consider if you think about the range of outcome. vonnie: injure baseline -- in
12:40 pm
your baseline scenario, you title that "staying alive." dark side of the moon" and "here comes the sun." 8 we are positioned -- mr. fels: we are positioned for the left-hand scenario. we have been taking risk off the table in this rally. we think that is a prudent thing to do and we think markets are exuberant at the moment and we would like to build up liquidity that we can the ploy. generally, we think inflation is headed higher. the second strong view we have is that mortgage-backed securities will still be doing well. we have a positive view on the housing market here in the u.s. and on the consumer. that should help mortgages
12:41 pm
further. the credit spectrum, we really want to be in the safer parts of that spectrum. we like the short raided and the higher rated corporate securities and credit. generally, we think this is not a time to take big bets on one or the other outcome, this is the time to be prudent and patient and wait for better opportunities. david: as we look ahead to next year, it is useful to look back to january and february of this year when china was the story and there was concern about the reserves and we saw fluctuation in the chinese currency. do you expect we see that play out more in the new year? how does that affect the u.s. and european market? mr. fels: i think there is a clear risk that we get something like a replay. china reacted in the form of a sharper currency depreciation.
12:42 pm
we already got indications that the currency is depreciating further. news were some noises by agencies out of china probably reflecting official views that china is not happy with a more aggressive fed. policies wetrump can expect. i think this is a key risk for markets and one of the key transitions we are focused on is the transition in china to a new fx regime. that is why i think markets are too exuberant and optimistic at the moment. vonnie: thank you for joining us from newport beach. david: despite being with us for a major impactr, on the gm brand. we will find a what is next for the company. this is bloomberg. ♪ ♪

jobless claims are doing well, below 300,000 but one of the things that is different is the broader measure of unemployment, i looked at the different components and one of the conclusions is that a lot of this rising unemployment is structural rather than cyclical and it's not clear the fed can be do anything about it. vonnie: that's interesting. you are the captain of the group, was it all consensus? 2 dissenters and three people who agreed with the median which was to rate hikes going forward and the dissenters said it would be three. summary of the economic projections say there will probably be three rate hikes next year, we think it should still be to due to low inflationary pressures. innie: did your team factor

1:42 pm
on the 30 year going down by three basis points and this perhaps reflects at least some level about whether the fed will stick to three interest rate increases next year. plot in the past is been revised lower. we have been talking about the treasury selloff that has been occurring. this is the u.s. aggregate index year to date. we are pretty much unchanged, only up 45/10 of 1%. /10 of 1%. strategists including folks at black rock and hsbc and pimco are saying that a demographic shift in the united states could provide a floor under treasuries so we will perhaps not see the selloff continue, at least not with the same velocity and there is a limit to the selling that will happen.
1:43 pm
we are seeing an aging population in the united states. this chart is fascinating. you can see the percentage of u.s. citizens 65 or older. percentage has been climbing, it's about 15% of the population and has gone up about 3% over the past decade. this comes to us from an invested -- from the investment company institute. if you look at the taxable bond funds and that includes those for treasuries and corporate's, we are still seeing a high level of investment. this does not give us granularity into longevity. it shows us that there has been consistent demand for bond funds
1:44 pm
and some of these strategists are saying that will remain at a certain level because of this line. people are looking to the bond market because as you get older, you tend to look to treasuries as a source of income. thank you so much. it's time for the bloomberg business flash. j.p. morgan chase is looking to sell structured notes online in a website that will help retail brokers offer the securities. the bank plans to launch its site is soon as the middle of next year and has hired ibm to help build it. shares of pier 1 imports are surging today. it is raising its annual profit forecast. it rebounded the last two weeks of november suggesting consumers are hitting the malls again after the election ended. delta airlines has the slowest growth level in two years. they want to regain more pricing powers and are curbing the expansion of flights.

1:46 pm
nintendo owned and operated piece of hardware. pokemon go is only in terms of revenue so what will this bring in? >> pokemon go did about 500 million downloads. in theo is a part owner pokemon company so it saw some of the upside. it's fair to assume that they have high hopes for this game of one billion downloads at a premium price of $10 per download. that's $7 billion for nintendo and $3 billion for apple. david: we have seen nintendo have great success. with demandkeep up of the vintage console. so long foraken nintendo to come to the mobile platform? >> having control over its own system is a part of that. understanding the retail

changed our views quite a bit. for the last four years, we've had a bullish move on u.s. equities but with lower earnings growth and a higher price to earnings ratio or higher multiple. we changed that call completely now. we think there will be a lot thatearnings growth but will be partially if not ultimately all upset by price-to-earnings decline. the fed will continue to be a big factor on share prices. a lot of people had noted that the fed was taking a bit of a backseat. my tray policy was no longer the driver and we would be looking to the fiscal side for a catalyst. that's monetary policy was no longer the driver. adam: was a notion for several years where you had bad economic news and was good for the markets because the fed was there and good economic news that was good for the markets because there was that everything is good kind of era we were in.

in his mind, they don't have to have experience in the sector they are leading these departments in, it's about being a problem solver and being a smart person in general. maybe there is not diversity in terms of demographics. what about in terms of ideology? it doesn't make complete sense. the common thread through all of these are the things we been talking about, the business background, strong leader and moneymaking potential in their past careers. ideologically, it's a little scattershot. donald trump is a little scattershot when it comes to ideology, too. he doesn't have a full spread that he has a full spread of ideas that don't quite make

very well, including gary cohen from goldman sachs, rex tillerson from exxon mobil -- when you are looking at that cast of people, what do you think they are going to bring to the administration that is different? what is new? this is a good thing? jamie: obviously i was dead wrong that you will not see a wall street person in washington anytime soon. you had a complete of people. are in charge, and the republicans have not been antibusiness the way you have seen democrats largely be antibusiness for years. if you are going to be president, you should have the best people sitting around the table. i think it is a mistake to constantly be told that if you work for an oil company, a bank, this, that automatically makes you bad. you want the best team. i think a lot of these people are very qualified people who are patriots who will want to help the country. they will not try to help their former company. these are people with deep knowledge that hopefully will do a great job.

megan: do you think that now, when you look at that, sort of, street,n terms of wall that this is a reset moment for the industry more broadly in terms of what the american people are expecting or what they are likely to see? jamie: i think it is a reset moment for how businesses will be treated. 145 million people work in america. 125 million work for private enterprise. 25 million work for government -- we hold them in high regard sanitation, teachers -- but if you did not have the 125, you could not pay for the other 20. it is a huge benefit for society. for years, they have been being down as terrible people. i think it is a good reset. detroit is a perfect example where you see civic society, not for profits here, government, business, working together to improve the lives of american citizens. so, yeah, i think the reset has the chance to do the same thing. if you can do locate what you

rates as was expected yesterday, many are turning their outlooks to 2017. our next guest falls in the bearish camp with earnings growth. he is under what strategists are expecting, which he describes as overly optimistic. david lafferty is here. you help oversee a lot of money -- about $900 billion across quite a few funds. you have insight into how people are reacting after the election. tell us about the earnings expectations -- how come people are getting ahead of themselves? david: i think the trifecta of presents -- official sure, tax cuts, a deregulation program -- the market clearly likes this. it is a pro-growth, pro-business policy. i understand that. i still think we are constrained across the global economy with a lot of supply-site issues. we probably still live in a real global, real gdp world of maybe
3:16 pm
three, 3.5%, and if you throw inflation on that, maybe now little growth -- nominal growth globally is 5%. aretations on the s&p 500 11, 12 -- i think it is hard for companies to grow nominal earnings at 10, 11, 12%, when the world is growing at 5% or 6%. scarlet: the outlook has not changed -- the election has not change your outlook and if anything, the gains have made you less confident about what is going to come. david: that is a great assessment. when we saw the senate was always going to go republican, here comes the pro-business agenda -- that made us optimistic, but in the gains started to come immediately, and i am worried those gains have been siphoned from next year into this year. we were optimistic. i would not say we are pessimistic or irish, but i think we are probably not as
3:17 pm
you've -- bearish, but i think we are probably not as euphoric as what seems to be the general consensus. let's talk about the next year expectation -- i want to jump into the terminal, the earnings estimate overview. here is what you are talking about -- the year plus one growth. we are expecting right now and average 19% growth -- analysts surveyed by bloomberg, to get to where we want to be a year from now, roughly 133 at the end of 2017. massive move. what happens when people think about these double-digit numbers are not realistic? david: i think it will take wind out of people's sales. what i am worried about his valuations in general. our earnings going to move up? but we are already at something like 19 times forward earnings on the s&p 500. we could in for a good bull market if we get the earnings growth people are expecting and multiples keep expanding.
3:18 pm
i do not see how that is likely given two factors that tend to drive multiples are inflation and fed policy. we looking to get more inflation, tighter fed policy. i do not know how multiples keep moving up to the more likely scenario to beat these numbers is we have to grow into these numbers. i do not think we are going to see price expansion on top of earnings growth. we will probably see multiples may be, at least, stay the same, contract a little bit, as these earnings materialize. they will not be that good. scarlet: do have to deal with the effects of a strong dollar as well. what is notable, yesterday at the new stuff is, nobody asked janet yellen about international development. that was the big theme, concern earlier this year, but crickets on that front yesterday. fewow you are looking at a political shocks that could shake up your base scenario. david: two of the ones out there -- the first is china, always a risk, the nonperforming loans, the build up of dead in the banking system -- i do not know if anyone can predict a
3:19 pm
triggering event. scarlet: that has been a concern for a couple of years. david: it continues to build over time. we do not know when that happens, but we have to factor that in. china controls both the borrowers and the lenders -- the borrowers are typically the state-owned enterprises. the lenders are the banks. they can play extend and pretend for longer than most of the pure lending economies could, but they cannot do it forever. meeting infrom a london, meeting with them as a parliament and policymakers. while the tone from the regular citizens around the u.k. is pretty optimistic about brexit, when you meet with policymakers, it was really eye-opening how little of a plan, i think, there is in place, and i think the markets have decided they will figure it out. it will be in the best interest of the eu and the u.k.. i am not sure -- i am a little bit worried that brexit is going
3:20 pm
to work a little bit harder. if there is a plan, they are not talking about it. the more likely scenario is maybe there is not a great plan. oliver: that feels like something that is not really on the forefront of discussion. will that be the biggest unexpected -- we are concentrated on the u.s. markets and trump, as we are talking about. david: i do not know that is the biggest one. i think the one that is more likely to get us in the u.s. is what janet yellen was referring to yesterday -- inflation picking up a little bit. you saw in the forecast estimates that the on implement rate is not excited to go much lower from here, and if you have a lot of stimulus to the economy, you have 5.5 million unfilled jobs. you are already close to where the low in an opponent rates will be according to their estimates. maybe this just becomes more inflationary. you get some growth, but not as much growth, just more inflation. i am worried in a highly levered economy, higher interest rates derail the market.
3:21 pm
it --brexit or china do yes, but closer to home, i am more worried about inflation. oliver: great stuff, david lafferty. down from boston. david: having me. scarlet: a long list of work -- worries. while u.s. stocks are up 8% post the election of donald trump, russian stocks are up almost 20%. we are talking about the russian etf come out for the 11th time in the past 12 sessions. from new york, this is bloomberg. ♪

cle in chicago. a lot to talk about -- we have the federal reserve rate hike in place. we had stocks trade off. now off a little bit from the highs. what is your take here? tim: digesting the selloff post-fed, tried to break above the intraday highs. think we will digest further. i think the fed raising a quarter point was baked in. to euphoria over the fed work three rate cuts next year is misplaced. if you look back to plaster, they basically said the same thing, only delivered on one. i expect the same thing where the fed is boxed in with the strong dollar, a week worldwide economy could i think the market will be muted going forward. at his image standpoint. look at the 10-year yield, it is on pace for its biggest move.
3:25 pm
it suggest we will see consolidation -- maybe investors will reconsider whether that actually happens. what are your thoughts on bonds and rates? bond rate is well above the yield on the s&p 500. not too long ago it was well below the s&p 500 yield. that will be a headwind for stocks. your previous guest talked about valuations. i think i will be a headwind as well. buybacks will be slowing. a lot of stuff to work through even though the rate hike was only 25 basis points. abigail: what about russia -- it sounds like you have thoughts on russia and a trade idea. can you talk about some of your trade? tim: absolutely. our market has had almost an historic rally post-trump, almost up 8%. russia is up almost triple that -- up about 20% from the november election. ran into a little trouble finally yesterday, but on almost every metric, the highest level
