3:35 pm
weighing on the major averages at this point. and finally, what really stands out. we take a look at the vix. messageng the idea of a -- massive selloff in stocks. the old down two basis points but it is not a huge flight to safety. vix is pretty interesting, spiking 30%, more than 30%. and i examined the technicals in the last segment that suggested there could be more up action which suggests stocks could selloff. thanks to abigail doolittle. at let's bring in our macro man. great to have you with us. these -- you only have me on when it goes horribly wrong. julia: we will try to shift that. some of the trades we have been talking about is the relative safe haven.
3:36 pm
time for technology stocks and the greatest risk paring today? to sayppose it is safe that maybe the market got a little bit complacent. we also made these observations the last couple of. ey seem be raining. discussed a few minutes ago, the internal price action was much more reminiscent of 2017 when we had the slow grind up with no correlation across s&p 500 stocks. week, we is that last actually ground down in relatively low volatility fashion. the individual stocks seemed to be trading on an idiosyncratic acis rather than a systemic basis. and it is much more of a systemic thing. ultimately, sort of putting up and metaphorical wall, as it

were, and say we don't want foreign capital in the market isn't really a good thing. julie: you have a chart of the correlations or the lack thereof. if it is an actual trade war, you have some sort of setting. >> i saw a headline that cte is no longer going to fix one of us urinals will -- at the of and china because it requires them to buy american parts to fix it. i say, it's a trade war. in tech really getting hammered today. and even throughout all of this trade stuff, they have been extraordinarily hot.
3:38 pm
when you look at that, can it be cooling off? julia: i'm watching the price actions we had toward the close. i just want to point it out. >> i think very prosaically, if most of the foreign investment in the u.s., at least from china, tends to be focused on technology, then we don't want that money anymore. >> there, maybe you can talk a little bit about of some euphoria. a couple of weeks away and companies cannot buy their stock back. they have this tailwind for much of the last six weeks or so. it has ground to a halt now. being ahead of

earnings season, is called the future, harley davidson giving investors a little bit of the case of what we might be hearing more of? that is the other thing. to date, the president has been able to control the narrative in terms of trade. but when individual companies say that these policies are hurting us, particularly a beacon of make america great-ism. julie: and when that has appeared at the white house. >> and don't forget the paul ryan's home district, the symbolism is sort of rich and dripping with ironing. -- you might reasonably don't have to be a nobel prize winner in literature to be able to draw the allusion here. and to some degree, it is almost comic. worried about china itself in 2018 with the systems as normal, despite the headlines
3:40 pm
in the risk here. we have the bbo see cutting the reserve requirement and having noise over the weekend as well. , iting to european leaders could be hit as a result of the protectionist terms. and we have the chinese one weakening as well. >> it is one of the great pleasures. we all need to know that the credit growth over the last two years has been unsustainable, a question of when rather than if and it allspinning goes horribly wrong. i think if i were tlook at one thing in china to give a sense , it woulderlying risk be the effect reserves. what we saw from the peak in 2014 was a pretty sharp
3:41 pm
deceleration. currency and the step jump, how that rippled through global markets. what we had seen prior to that, sort of one year plus, a sharp decline. those event going kind of sideways. and they have probably actually gone up a bit. is not facing the sort of capital play that was the case two or three years ago. it would be consistent with real pressure. and in particular, in terms of market sentiment at the move we are seeing. -- >> i think that is think that is absolutely right. if china looks at the policy quiver and what is the most attractive eroded shoot back at the u.s., it will probably be

the currency. particularly because of the reserve dynamic they mentioned, they are not facing this sort of applied pressure at the moment that would ordinarily prohibit sort of a currency depreciation. the backdrop from their perspective is much more favorable. and equalizing the pressure from the u.s.. a lot of back-and-forth. thank you very much. we will have more markets ahead of the report. this is bloomberg. ♪

3:45 pm
chinese investments and says u.s. industry is recording -- according to reporting to the u.s. treasury secretary that has urged a less aggressive approach with china and seems to have lost the fight to some degree. they are insisting all the concerns are fake news. from house editor washington. suggesting thet u.s. is looking to use -- looking to investigate and prevents chinese investment in the u.s. going forward. and the treasury secretary pushed back. >> fake news, finally. i'm very proud today. -- steve mnuchin has kind of lost the internal fight over how aggressively they go after china for their trade practices. that has been a theme in the .eporting for weeks
3:46 pm
they publish the story about a decision the white house has expected. they choose the very aggressive law to curb chinese investment and tech companies. a lot of people think the chinese by u.s. companies in order to obtain intellectual property from the u.s. that they handoff to companies in china to replicate. so the thinking here is that if we curb chinese investment in our company, they won't be able to do that anymore. steve mnuchin has argued for a less aggressive approach. to beef up the community on foreign investment in the u.s. and allow that start moreo aggressively regulating chinese deals. joe: what is the current law? the companies often come under review. what would be the precise change that would be this amped up level to go after china?
3:47 pm
>> i am not an expert in this. but my understanding is that it will invoke this emergency law that dates from the 70's and i think it is really seldom used to declare that chinese companies or entities can no invest innificantly certain kinds of u.s. companies. high-tech companies. they are targeting this china 2025 effort. china wants to be a leader. is trump administration thinking that means america would lose. american companies in those fields would lose to these subsidized finance companies. the trump administration is not the first or only entity to complain about ip issues between the u.s. and china.
3:48 pm
have other administrations addressed this? and if so, how? it has always been low-key with other administrations. there has been a pressure point with the chinese for the last 20 years or longer. it has been brought up in negotiations with chinese trade officials that have been taking a softer approach. they try to gently persuade the chinese to not engage in these practices. it just never worked. guys like chuck schumer in the senate, you would agree with the trump administration that china has not been reined in enough on its acquisition of u.s. intellectual property. julie: i will and where we begin here. let's just say the bloomberg and wall street journal are fake news on this point. what can they announce here that
3:49 pm
isn't directly targeted despite the fact that the investigation was supposed to be about china? what about now that is broad-based but ultimately hits china? >> this week suggests that the fight is not over and we're still trying to win a battle in the administration. is a sanction on china. and the u.s. acronym that they would be felt this committee and allow it to more aggressively block suspect deals between chinese entities and american firms. our bloomberg white house editor, thank you so much. and on another trade front, made in the usa but not for too much longer. trump met with executives from harley davidson at the white house and how to

the company as a symbol of iconic american brands hurt by unfair trade practices. and now the policy weighing on harley is coming straight for the white house. the next guest says that will not be the last company to hit the road. was therley administration used and it shifts some of the manufacturing overseas and will ship even more. would be theat decision to back out of the transpacific partnership. harley davidson they would build a plant in thailand. they were never exactly this perfect american icon. they are specifically blaming the eu tariffs on harley davidson motorcycles which happened in response to the trumpet a minute rations deal on aluminum tariffs for this decision. joe: are we going to see a lot more of these in the coming
3:51 pm
earnings season, companies talking about the specific monetary ramifications of the trade war? >> i think so. it will get more nitty-gritty. there was also reports about general electric and the impact china tariffs may have on that because it makes parts in china and imports them back to the u.s. where it is assembled implants and is constant. to see how interconnected these supply chains are and there are obvious opportunities for disruption. for a company to feel the pinch and rethink some of their logistic. what other company saying about the prospect of the solution being found, having an effect and having a detrimental impact. we are looking at the future here rather than the prospect of some interim solution. >> the vibe is that they hope that it it will get it worked out. they have been reliant on trade
3:52 pm
groups to take the helm of protest and policy. to continue to barrel down the road, i think you will see more put into speak up and monetary terms with the impact of these policies are. julia: they said it would take 18 months to ramp up and to replace the lost production they are talking about being hit by these tariffs. >> it does give them a window. we would see the easing of tensions. we keep operations in the u.s. and have a great pr moment for trump. and harley davidson and ge are to companies that have not exactly been smooth sailing over the last several years. harley has had some ups and downs. these companies that are on more delicate footing despite the much more touted economic recovery that is occurring, that would be the most at risk.
3:53 pm
-- >> there is already significant rusher in the market in facing competition from other motorcycle makers. those are the companies that are most vulnerable and most likely to whether that additional cost impact from the tariffs. julia: exactly why the eu has chosen them. joe: right. cracks it doesn't hurt that harley davidson is based in wisconsin. julie: and quickly, jobs. what is the effect, even though it will take 18 months or more? what will be the impact of jobs shipped overseas? >> harley davidson has closed down a kansas city plants. workers that have started to look at the thailand facility and outsource some of their jobs. i think you are looking at 350 jobs lost from relocation of the kansas city facility.
3:54 pm
eyes something to keep an on as these companies evaluate changes to their supply chain. they rethink where they might want to do business. the whole point of this was to make american business great again and create more jobs and more factories. julie: not happening quite that way. at least not yet. julia: some traders more concerned with the short-term outlook than the long-term. trading higher than those maturing in august. an inverse of the usual spread. let's bring in the bloomberg across asset reporter to tell us what is going on. we have been 2% and we bounce as we had this moment away. six minutes away from the close. luke, talk us through what is going on. luke: the volatility curve like the yield curve slopes upward. the recognition of the historical pattern of volatility's hikes. theodds are, sometime in future, you will get a spike.
3:55 pm
when we are getting it now and , wehe near term contract got all the way up to six bucks for a brief time today. is now,ink the fear this bike is now, and folks are concerned with the very near-term outlook for stocks. joe: and we have a chart of the vix curve inverting. we have seen this a few times before this year. most notably right before that volatility blowup back in february. >> the most recent time we saw this was when caterpillars executives came out and said, we think this is the high water mark. that was concern about the global growth outlook and kind of like more of an androgynous one. we are turning down of our own accord. accompanied by trader stricken's, that is something that can push us toward. of an accelerated
3:56 pm
version on a macro front rather than the last one. and as we keep talking about, there is this threatened back-and-forth and forth but there is no actual effect. most of the trade measures have not been put into effect. when we hear investors and traders talk about what is going today, therelike is pessimism that they will be put into effect. this is a market that hasn't had a hedge a bull event in so long. the last time we had a hedge a bull event was the first round of the french elections worries all the ball really spike ahead of time and the folks prepare for an event. now we are giving the opportunity to finally react to something. and realized volatility is below 10, all of 2017. we got below 10 for today. today was the last day.

4:06 pm
from peter navarro. he was on cnbc, and he said misunderstanding about the administration's trade policies. there were no plans to implement investment restrictions on china and others. could today's market action have dissuaded the administration from putting those curbs in place? peter: first of all, thank you for having me, and i am always so joyful. i seem to be invited on down days. maybe i'm going to have to change my name to peter beraish. joe: i'm guessing you didn't make that one up just now. peter: i've thought about it for a while. markets work, but meaningful change takes place slowly over time. we've seen this situation where markets go down because they've seen a change in policy, and a spokesman who has been a cheerleader for that policy goes out and says, nah, that is not
4:07 pm
what i meant that is not good. it increases uncertainty. you have to take a look at everything across the board, as joe just said. there's no place to hide. there was no movement in gold. of course, my favorite deflationary indicator, which we like to talk about, soybeans -- continues to make a new low. we are approaching five-year that isa market reflective of our export market. i may have to start getting up off the couch and going to the tv and turning the channel. mr. remote, that is going to be gone. joe: i have a chart here on my terminal, and you can see the absolute collapse of soybeans in the last few weeks. pretty dramatic these soybean futures. -- and, these soybean futures. we've been talking about when is inflation going to pick up. is that the wrong story?
4:08 pm
peter: i continue to be on the other side of that trade. why? i try to listen to the evidence from the markets. if you look at caterpillar, we said, there's trade uncertainty. i'm a farmer. i'm going to have less exports. buy that marginal tractor? prices are made at the margin. that is what we are seeing. look at the lows. everybody has discussed the yield curve. let's look at other markets. let's look at jpmorgan. let's look at goldman sachs. one of the things we try to do is say, when there is a big macro low, like february 6, so many stocks made it that day, and then there was a rally. there is an issue within that individual stock. caterpillar led the way. , the financials are approaching that level.
4:09 pm
take caterpillar out. it accelerated. the markets are saying, wait a second. the nasdaq made new highs a couple days ago. you are going to have corrections off that. with the dow closer to the is a real6 low, it tug-of-war. this is a difficult business. it's a difficult time right now. this is clearly a time not to be taking risk. joe: one of the points you made in all of your appearances is that there is no shame in waiting and watching the market. one of the striking things these days is how quickly the narrative changes. in mid-june, it looked like we were off to the races. going to erasee the celebrating -- the selling from february and march, and it turned around. are we still in this situation where the market isn't telling you enough what to do?
4:10 pm
peter: i think the market more and more is telling us, like i said, talking about the interesting names that are starting to take out of their february 6 low, there are definitely more problems lurking. meaningful change takes place slowly. we all think markets should adjust overnight. no. the are changing policy on fly, and we as market participants have to try to adjust to that. it gets exhausting. after a little while, you say, you know what? i'm taking my ball, and i'm going home. next week is july 4. thes take some props off table. it's the end of the quarter. the s&p is kind of flat. the dow is down a couple percent. i'm done. julia: we should point out it's only 72 hours since we were talking about the nasdaq hitting record highs. stay with us for more. boresh ratherth

gw pharma, which makes the drug you just talked about that the fda approved, they see this as a huge step in the direction of showing that a company can take a marijuana-based drug and run it through clinical trials and get the approval that they need to, which takes many, many years to get to market and be safe and effective. medicalt have the marijuana industry, the larger industry that is doing this, that is legal in some states, that will want to be able to use this as a way to say, our stuff is safe, but the fda is not going to allow them to piggyback on this, even though some people may take this as the way it will be. be what some people are going to perceive from this approval. julie: even for this particular drug, as you say, it has fda
4:25 pm
approval, but it is running into the federal interdiction on marijuana. this is not the last approval that this drug is going to have to get. what happens next? anna: even though it's fda-approved, you aren't going to see it on the shelves for epilepsy patients anytime soon. the drug enforcement administration has to come ,hrough and schedule the drugs so they have five different levels of scheduling. that will determine levels of restrictions. the ceo of gw pharma told me he expects that to take about 90 days. at the earliest, this could be something that hits shelves in the fall. joe: the maker of the drug gw pharmaceuticals plc, that is a british company. how does it's a domicile being in britain allow it to race ahead of other pharmaceutical companies in developing marijuana-based drugs?

anna: what helped it here is that the u.s. government has some restrictions on rearch and marijuana. it is very, very tightly capped. there are only -- there is only a certain grower that is able to give out medical marijuana for research, and there are others you are supposed to be able to apply to get that marijuana and research it. researchers say it is really tough to do. pharma is in the u.k., they were able to have an easier time researching at, and they are going to make it there, as well. they are going to import it to the u.s. julie: to be clear, this is a drug approved to treat epilepsy. it will not make patients high or feel the effects they would from smoking marijuana, for example. it's interesting that the dea still has to have that approval process you talked about.

anna: you are right. this drug has cbd in it, so that is a different type of cannabinoid, a different component in the marijuana plant from thc, which is what gets people high. the dea, since it is derived from the marijuana plant, and they schedule marijuana as schedule one, which means there is no medical reason to be taking this, no medical properties trust would help anyone, they need to take a look at it to figure out, if you don't include the thc, just use the cbd, how is that going to be scheduled? julie: thank you so much, anna edney, our bloomberg health care reporter. gw pharma shares are lower today, although they have had a run-up so far this year. check out ouro prognosis page at bloomberg.com/prognosis. it is where we report on the future of health care and the
