does that translate into more volatility? guest: what we have seen in the last 12 months is only big events bring volatility into the market. the market is almost getting used, not really translating into anything of any significance. -- we may see more in the markets but not anything significant. what is going to move the needle question mark things really have an translated into market action this week. is it going to be looking at what happens throughout the rest of the year? all of these events are in the news. i guess we have to go back to
valuation and know that valuation, as you say, markets are 20% on assumptions and that's the starting point for investors. they need company to start to increase their revenues and everything we see our companies are still struggling to come out with big news, increasing revenues and increasing growth the market is rising. heidi: how does it make you feel about china? there's a lot of concern about what the balance sheet actually look like. early we have been very and understand there were some problems in china. we are talking more than six years ago. a lot of investments were not bringing any earnings.
this, we see now those challenges are still there and that china story is going to be relevant for the markets generally for the for siebel future. betty: you mentioned there are certain sectors where you see values. defensive.em are idc value in defensive? guest: isn't it funny? last year at this time, all the value was on the cyclical cycles like industrials and technology. now, you are seeing the trump rally in the last two months has taken all the value away. almost like the value is in those sectors. they tend to be a bit more defensive, and yet i'm a value
investor. betty: health care, staples -- that's where you see the values? when i was reading through some of your comments, we have heard this before but i want you to explain it more closely -- some of the lessons we are learning about what's happening in the japanese bond and equity market and how that might mirror what we are seeing in the u.s. this is your chart we have re-created. year jgbs at the 10 yield. you see that divergence happening several years ago. tell me the comparison that you draw here. >> it is a contrary in chart. the theme for 2007.
the journey tends to be quite long and painful. we know that. immediately after the elections in japan, the market went up in a very aggressive way. because, it was strong the starting point was more a tractive. market taken the the contrary and call was everyone wanted to sell bonds and by equities. equities went nowhere and in the monthsr the following 12 jgb.he the story for 2017 is somehow similar. policiest is pricing that trump will implement in the states over the next 12 months.
the contrary and call says that of economicpe growth you are going to see is not going to be phenomenal. as we know, values in the defensive sector. thank you so much. i want to tell you about more breaking news coming out on mark tucker. we just heard he's stepping down as a group chief executive from aia. it has been confirmed he will become the chairman of hsbc holdings. there has been long speculated movement at the top and mark tucker is going to become the hsbc chairman. we have much more ahead as we look at that breaking news. plus trump to temper his criticism of china.
betty: blackstone ceo, steve schwarzman, one of donald trump's top economic advisers says he expects trump to soften his youth on china. we know steve schwarzman has very close ties, said he has some interest here in saying that. what's he saying? he is saying the donald trump in the white house is evolving from the donald trump we have seen on the campaign trail. tradeeals with the imbalance as well. let's take a listen. how things go with the discussions, but it is very measured and not quite as hyperbolic.
i don't think there's going to china as aegarding currency manipulator. ramy: now, mr. trump has the benefit of time on his hands. on beijing's side, they have a called outlook on u.s.-china ties. take a look at this chart on the bloomberg terminal. on the criticism of chinese currency manipulation, look how much the country is earning through its foreign currency reserves. the lowest 2011. callinga case for not china a currency and it later.
indi: it is 9:30 here sydney. a sign we could go a little higher, a .1% gain and a huge event of risk week for investors. the fed might be the least of all of that. can you imagine that? betty: it's just after 6:30 p.m. and you are watching daybreak australia. let's get to first word news. >> the ousted south korean president remaining defiant after being read from office.
she was home sunday after leaving the presidential office and greeted by hundreds of supporters. she said that she was confident the truth would come out. she faces criminal charges for abusing her powers for personal gain. the automaker claimed the airbag maker withheld information about the faulty insulators. carmakers are fighting, alleging they knew about the fraud devices. guilty as part of a $1 billion settlement. iceland is back. eight years after the banking crash, they will list almost all remaining positions allowing pension funds access to global markets. iceland spent eight years trying to clean up the collapse that triggered the country's worst recession in more than six
decades. global news 24 hours a day powered by our 2600 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. heidi: let's get a quick update on the markets -- new zealand, not a lot of action underway. a little bump at the open there, .1%.up hasngth in the dollar rally been curtailed the weakness probably around the region, the japanese yen and bank of japan expected to stand pat when it comes to its control policy, but higher inflation expectations might result in greater talk about when they start to taper.
watching the pounds -- watching the pound and the 10 year rebounding but still over .2%. that was the close on friday, just .3% after a robust heat on eliminatesport which any residual doubt about what the fed would do this week. trading getting underway in asia this warning. what are you watching? >> what is happening in the dollar-yen is interesting. move and iy flat expect a fairly muted start to japanese equity trading. friday.he big move on
not just the fed, it is the boe and swiss national bank. desk andom the macro the dutch election. of traction and that will be interesting going to the polls on wednesday. the move in bonds coming through today, australian bonds selling out to some of that got play ahead of the fed on wednesday. betty: i'm glad you mention the fed, it is a big week for the dollar. looking at our favorite function here, everything still in place to see further gains in the dollar. for now, definitely but a
strong sense of trepidation. if you jump into the bloomberg and look at this chart, it shows you how the dollar bulls are positioning at the moment. there's the sense the market is underpricing. the fed expectation of three moves this year, the language is going to be key coming out of yellen's press conference. the way the market changes its dynamic and catches up to the dot plot or doesn't, they could will see the diversion between where the fed is an bond market is in terms of rate hikes going through the rest of the year. there's also the treasury secretary in germany and the language around what he said not just in terms of the china aspect, but any mention around the u.s. currency will be closely scrutinized.
looks like a 19% chance by fed funds futures for a red hike to share. how far that has gone up. thank you so much. stay on this with abigail doolittle joining me at how the u.s. markets are pricing this in. abigail: it has been a bit unusual for the major averages here. the s&p 500 down for the first time in seven weeks. on a bullish stretch ahead of the fed. some technical analysts say we will see a pullback now. this, right now we see lots of red. katie stockton says she had been
bullish up until then but she expects a bit of a pullback. we will see stocks pullback. groupo had simon property down on the week as well. overall, a bearish week for stocks. those were in the energy sector. abigail: we had oil down for the second week in a row. that's the worst week for oil since the election. maybe it suggests a bit of a reversal. also before that opec supply. reversal, butof a it will be interesting to see what is next.
the pink line is the 50 day moving average. dayyellow line is the 200 moving average. oil hitting down on the 200 day moving average. will the buyers that been and support? it will be interesting to see what happens in the week ahead. when analysts says he does expect the average to support oil trading higher. for the second week in a row, we have had gas trading higher. as betty and kathleen can attest to, it is freezing. [laughter] that was one bullish spot in the energy complex, natural gas. the past two the first
rate rise of the year has become even surer thanks to the jobs report. but brexit is looking a little more rocky. the payrollwith numbers. they were universally strong. >> strong enough for the federal reserve to go through with an interest rate hike when it concludes its meeting. they seem to be firmly going down that path. the consensus was a gain of 200,000 workers, yet the employment rate fell, and that was a plus. it looks like unseasonably warm weather boosted goods hiring in goods producing hiring jobs.
6684 -- you can see it is the biggest gain on construction day mining. plus for the overall number. thewill hear a lot more -- probability at 100%. the question is if it is a two day meeting where the fed unemployment, gdp, inflation, and the number of rate hikes that should be coincident with those kinds of numbers. in 2017 couldes move up to four. members likevish janet yellen may not be willing to go that far. it is a broad measure and is turning down.
higher than the previous month, but still kind of flat. fed wage growth tracker has trend that band is suddenly going down. the labor market is tired. slowly is going to be a big question for the fed when they get that. plot together and release it. heidi: the risk could be outside as theresa may and her team are trying to revert a revolt in her own party. what's the latest? kathleen: it seems the last few weeks are slipping out of theresa may's grasp. the upper house of our moment, the house of lords voted for an amendment that would give them some control over the negotiation if theresa may cannot strike a deal with the eu
. now the house of commons has to vote on this amendment. she is also hoping that she can trigger the march 31 brexit, that is the deadline she set for herself. in the u.k., herb rates it chief spoke on u.k. television. he said it's a small amendment, a simple deal, just don't tie theresa may's hands. would benson said it perfectly ok not to get a deal with the eu. and the dutch election is this week. at the egg deal. is that something that would slow parliament down and give theresa may time to think about it? the eu celebrates the founding treaty on march 25.
you mentioned some big things to watch. more central meetings, but that in perspective for us. kathleen: you have the bank of england, china has big numbers coming out. the national people's congress is wrapping up a change in the gdp target -- wednesday is a big day. retail sales in the u.s. and consumer prices, china wrapping up the all-important meeting from people all over the country and then the dutch election. on friday,eting trump, free trade, protectionism -- do you remember when the g-20 draft suggested they were dropping anti-protectionism from their language? we will see what happens there. says he's notin

election that will let him push and put some a prime position for a second term in 2019. strongs like he's in a to campaign for a second term. >> he has become the most influential man in 30 years. he's in a strong position and he has gained support on the promise to bring back growth. he has ruled out measures like demonetization as a way of rooting out corruption. i want to show you this high chart. they've won the majority in the most populous state. he has been very aggressive pushing forward.
want development. setssement for that so far the tone for politics for the next 24 months. despite the win, isn't it true he has a challenging road ahead? >> he does. tofaces strong opposition reforms in the upper house of element. difficult tobe push through and perhaps out of reach for him. what he is likely to do is push for structural economic reforms and will likely push to revive lending and policy aimed at including india pass formal economy into more formal channels. all of these will be welcomed by
