we are getting a little bit of breaking news from the norwegian central bank, of course, maintaining the key rate at 1% will have much more on what fed policy actually means for other central banks. first, to your markets, these of the stocks down. a lot of pressure and concern on where the trade conversation go next. vice premier liu he is in washington. because of the back-and-forth saying it was china's fault they had breached the deal, we see movement on the renminbi and on the 10 year yield. we cast ourselves back to what jamie dimon said. fed and,alk about the of course, the impact on treasuries. speak to the leader of the liberal democrats here in the u k. we talk brexit and u.k.

elections. first, let's get straight to first word news. u.s. corporate debt market will suffer massive losses if the economy falls into recession according to steve eisman. he is one of the money managers who famously predicted the collapse of subprime mortgages. i think the financial system of the united states is safe. that does not mean we won't have a recession. in a recession, i think there will be massive losses at the bond market cause of the lack of liquidity. but is a problem for people who invest in the bond market. pompeo has a stinging rebuke against the u.k., demanding they take a far tougher approach when it comes to china and iran. this comes at a sensitive time for the prime minister, who is struggling to deliver brexit under almost daily pressure to resign. uber is said to process its ipo

today. it is unlikely to be as big as initially thought. the company is reportedly considering pricing shares at the midpoint range or slightly below. they would debut with a value around $79 billion, a far cry from the 120 billion some were touting last year south africa has started counting the votes from the election. they suggest outright victory for the national congress, but the scale will be crucial for the president. the final result is expected this weekend. global news, 24 hours a day on air and on twitter, powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. this is bloomberg. francine: thank you so much. let's get straight to our top story. president trump has upped rhetoric, claiming china has broken the deal. the talks were already clouded by imminent tariff increases and
4:04 am
threats of retaliation. >> by the way, see the tariffs we are doing? they broke the deal! so they are flying in the vice premier, good demand. -- good man. francine: there is quite a lot of news going on with trade at the same time. we heard from the fed what they want to do, which could be either a cut or a rise. the philippines central-bank cutting its key rate to 4.5%. we will have a full roundup of em and dollar moves. ,oining us is rob marshall lee and from copenhagen, peter, head of equity strategy at saxo bank. thank you for coming on. let me start with you, robert. are we going to see a lot more cutting from central banks around the world given what we heard on global growth and trade?
4:05 am
robert: last year, we saw banks moving up the -- move up. defending themselves against the rising dollar and u.s. rates. clearly, the situation has eased off, so it is taken the pressure off. the philippines had a credit slowdown, so i think it makes perfect sense to ease off. you look peter, when at global markets, how concerned are they about trade? if we have a deal, the markets go up? where are we in a wait and see situation? now, i think we are in a wait and see decision. the most likely scenario is a delay before any deal, which we think will be a week deal. short-term.ery if you look at global trade, we
4:06 am
have only had two major down periods. the slowdown we are seeing in the past four years is sort of an outlier when you think about how we are not in a war situation. i think it will be wrong to bet against global trade. this is a lot of noise. for markets, it is much more important to get some version of -- of m&t. of i think it is far more important magistrate. -- than this trade. i do not think it will be a catalyst for major declines. ray dalio was talking about m and t saying it was coming closer much sooner than expected. peter: i think we are headed down that road.
4:07 am
we have been on that bandwagon here for the past year and a half. the reason is quite simple. we have maxed out in terms of bid capacity, at least in many sectors. the monetary policy is maxed out as well. so the next downturn in the economy will have to be from the fiscal side when you are at these debt levels, the only sensible conclusion is that there will be a much tighter integration between fiscal and monetary policy. the only way to get out of this debt mountain is by accelerating nominal growth. the big question is the inflation component. that is what i'm saying is far more important if we get to m and t because it will have far more implications. it could really shift the inflation component. mean,ne: what does that robert, for the way you see it?
4:08 am
what is the chance of m and t actually being put in place? robert: for now, is very much a western phenomenon. that is where the concentration of debt is drivers remain slow. i think it is a misguided policy. there are some release valves around this currencies, for example. experiment,a big there are some consequences. bubbles? robert: absolutely, potentially. and big recessions are another potential as well when you have got an asset price and they get driven economy. that can spiral very rapidly. francine: terms of unintended consequences, where would we see bubbles first? peter: right now now, we have
4:09 am
bubbles in financial assets. that has been the effect of quantitative easing. the likely spike in inflation will be in real goods. inflation that is the biggest worry here, because i think inflation is not something that has a linear effect. m antique to work up to a certain point, but how good our policy at guessing when we get to that conditionality point? that would be the biggest worry about unleashing m and t. from a political point of view, we are added -- headed toward some kind of m and t. it is already the longest expansion since we began tracking. of increasest
4:10 am
stimulus. i think they will strike a deal in trade and will be a lot more .timulus coming francine: thank you very much. our guests stay with us. theng up, we speak to leader of a liberal democrats in the u.k.. we talk brexit, election's, and this is bloomberg.

relief for theresa may as lawmakers decide against making it easier to remove her. meanwhile, statements have been put out indicating progress in talks to find a compromise. joining us is the leader of the u.k. liberal democrats. thinkof all, do you jeremy corbyn and theresa may will push the deal over the line? vince: no, i do not. i think the one field -- the one thing that will is if they agree there should be what we call a referendum on the result. certainly, my party and the other remainders would vote for the deal weren't subject to referendum. it is the only way out of the i'm going to see the deputy prime minister in a few minutes time and making that case to them. francine: what do you think is
4:14 am
the chain -- chance of a second referendum? 50-50? vince: it is about that level. the prime minister is deeply opposed and that is the current blockage. but i really don't see these talks with the labour party going anywhere. negative, butuly i don't see how they can possibly sign up to it unless there is a referendum attached. how would they then -- how would it then be deliverable if they had a referendum? i cannot imagine the labour party and its members would accept a deal without a referendum. francine: but do you worry your strategy will alienate the 52% who voted for brexit? vince: we have been clear from the outset, there are people who
4:15 am
take a very strong, passionate view we are unambiguous. -- passionate view. we are unambiguous, not apologetic about it. some may not like it, but i think others admired the clarity of our position. in the local election, we did well in leave and remain areas. francine: you have said he will stand down soon, the local election results make you think again? vince: i don't think you can operate like that if you are a leader. you have got to be decisive. i have been clear for some time we needed to have an orderly succession. i want to the next generation to take over and lead us into the next election. you know, there are people flatteringly telling me i should stay forever, but i do not think that is an intelligent way of doing it.
4:16 am
i have made a commitment, we are now planning the succession process. francine: are you preparing for a general election this year? there is quite a high probability. the scenario people have been described is that there is a change in tory leadership in june. the new leader will want a political mandate and we then get a general election in september/october. that is plausible. i do not think it solves the problem because we may finish with a parliament much like the one we have got. probably less emphasis on reliance on the democratic union and a shuffling of the pack. but the fact is, the country is badly divided on brexit and virtually the only way to resolve it now is through a referendum. a general election will not do that. francine: are you just a protest
4:17 am
party, or would you be willing to enter a government coalition again? vince: we are not entering into a coalition with this present conservative party or with the corbyn led labour party. but as a matter of history and tradition, we are working with other people. we did work in the coalition in the u.k., it was a very good government. were punished politically, but it was a successful government. week ison from last that people reported the liberal democrats because we are good at local government. we run a lot councils, we do it well, and people like that. we are very much a party of doing things and working with others to make it happen, but we're certainly not talking about coalition with the current leadership. francine: have you think the european elections will go? -- how do you think the european elections will go? vince: hard to say.
4:18 am
many are unhappy because they are happening at all. it is clear a lot of support is behind the brexit party. but the question is what happens on the remain side. there are several different parties. i would be happier if we had been working together. i'm currently trying to mobilize people behind the liberal democrats. i expect us to do well and i hope that will be one of the main messages. francine: this is the concern. given the remain votes likely to be three ways, can you realistically change and affect the debate on brexit? vince: we would hope to. what we are sending is a clear, unambiguous message. i think we are the best people to deliver that because we have been campaigning longest.
4:19 am
we have been a european party for half a century. we are the best organize on the ground and we hope people get behind us. but the european elections are not going to be a referendum on brent. that will have to happen subsequently when the arguments will be put on both sides. opportunity to get a substantial number of live id. -- of lib-dem mep's. we hope they will remain to defend britain. we have a clear europe about what we can achieve. issues about climate change, competition policy, trying to have some stability in a world with pugin -- putin and trump. we want strong representation and that will be the main objective of the elections. francine: thank you very much,
4:20 am
vince cable, current leader of the liberal democratic party in the you get. -- in the u.k . these figures illustrate the lack of appetite from investors for current yield. exceeded,ng has been the lowest since 2009 speaking with bloomberg exclusively from beijing yesterday, jamie dimon warned of yields a current levels. 2.4 isink the 10 year at whenordinarily low government has bought $12 trillion of sovereign debt, it has had a habit of affecting the 10 year. i think that 4%, when you're having good growth, is not a bad number. francine: still with us is robert marshall lee and peter from saxo bank.
4:21 am
thank you for being patient. peter, let me start with you. what do you see the yield being at your end? it all depends on the fiscal's from the u.s. and china -- fiscals from the u.s. and china. they need a stable curve, that would be positive in general. a lot of studies and research show they will have to do actual yield control like the bank of japan. maybe a bump up on the long end. the steepness of the if it does not, the markets pricing the yield, i think the fed will be forced to cut the short end. more steepness is needed, i
4:22 am
think, for the overall confidence in the market. francine: and for everyone watching at home and on trading floors, this is a great chart covering the yield, the weakest in a decade. is there an ideal price for where treasuries should be? robert: it is not my area of expertise. there are a lot of disinflationary forces. the year on year oil price remains disinflationary. that may well change, so i would not bank against the bond yields moving up, but for now, it is quite disinflationary. francine: this is the question we are asking all of our guests. how concerned are you buy yesterday's weakest treasury tenure auction. i am not really that nervous. it is one data point, and
4:23 am
luckily, an auction can never fail due to the primary dealer all of the deals are enforced to take whatever is offered. it will eventually be mitigated through the fed. i am not that worried, it is one data point. for me, we got very close to yield inversion. it has previously been a pretty strong signal the bond market is signaling some stress or worries. that is why i'm coming back to the steepness of the yield curve. the market forcing up long ended yields or the fed will be forced to cut the short end. i think the probability is much higher for that scenario then if we just went back three or six months ago. peter, if you look at sectors affected by trade concerns, looking at the terminal and biggest dealmakers,
4:24 am
are there any sectors that you like? peter: sure. where we are in the business cycle, according to the oecd leading indicators, the economy is growing below trend and contracting. , we could beonment into a recession depending on a response from the policymaker. and that type of environment, some of the most defensive characteristics within quantum factors, it is quality, minimum volatility, they will continue to do quite well. but if we get a fallout, we could see a short-term correction. it would come and hit the hardest of amongst some of conductors, automobile wheels -- automobiles, basically every industry that has a deep, long global supply chain.
4:25 am
i think the car industry is a very good example of that it has really been under pressure for more than a year. also with tariffs, but again the slowdown in demand in key markets. francine: what does that mean for emerging markets? would you make a difference between ones with structural reform and the ones that have not? there are some big differences in growth drivers. the likes of brazil, south africa remain more abundant and there is little and insight to the honest there are others with far stronger growth drivers. somewhere like china is multidimensional. if that parts that continue to slow down, bad for long-term , but actually,in the service sector is growing rapidly. the middle class is getting
4:26 am
wealthier and they are stimulating through tax cuts. with think the service sector in china will become much more of a noter going forward do analyze it the way you would have done five or 10 years ago. francine: i will ask you more about consumer inflation coming up. they for joining us peter and robert -- thank you for joining us, peter and robert. next, the new nuclear deal in iran steal the limelight. bloomberg. ♪
