7:07 pm
the activity data side is expected to show a little but up in weakness. -- let up in weakness. let's look at the data that has been released to show why this weakness is expected. showeds trade data imports and exports very weak. there were also slow readings on fixed asset investment in industrial production for the first two months of the second quarter. supply and demand indicators were wobbling and they get worse in may. we saw the producer price index falling as well. a not very pretty picture leading up to these gdp numbers. tohis might open the door some more easing. what kind of measures might we see? selina: the chinese government is trying to walk a fine line here. they are trying to manage this
7:08 pm
downward slowdown for the double-digit growth days while keeping the debt level stable and fending off changes in unemployment. when it comes to the monetary side, i want to bring up this chart. it shows an array of tools at their disposal. cuts rates, it will take a targeted approach and not touch the benchmark lending rate as you can see in the white line that has remained steady. the fed cutting rates, this would give the pboc more wiggle room. in addition to the monetary side, economists are expecting significant stimulus from infrastructure spending and to boost consumer spending with other taxes. remember there is an existing fiscal stimulus plan. economists are watching to see how those play out in addition

7:10 pm
purchases. i don't think we can read too much into it yet. we don't know if huawei is still on that blacklist or if it is being removed. the china side is crafting up its own blacklist. these -- thisf re-engagement of sales will be a long-term shift or if huawei remains on the blacklist and this is temporary relief. it is a good sign regardless. we shery: will ultimately have to see how congress reacts. selina wang in china. the other big story we are tracking, it ab inbev has listed its asian unit, citing prevailing market conditions. we will send it back to sophie. it seems a valuations were too rich. sophie: too rich for investors. plenty of signals they believe the ipo was too lofty and

7:16 pm
to expect 50 basis points to be cut. there is no reason for the fed to do that instead -- unless we are in a new situation. that is where you get to the dynamic that bad news can be good news. we are going to cut rates, it will be 25 pips. markets are accepting that is the reality. shery:shery: especially for the banks. citibank kicking off the earnings season. when it comes to a fed cut expectation, this gtv chart showing that the one rate cut has been placed in for july. 2.5 cuts for the full year. still expecting hikes or a pause in the cycle. need to bring down their expectations for profit? max: they probably will.
7:17 pm
banks can function with a flat yield curve. they are at a real danger. the curve may steepen. banks will likely need to taper back profit forecast. in terms of equities, i know you like what you called the goldilocks stocks, the mid-cap stocks, not to big, not too small. explain your reasoning. max: mid-caps are not so large they had this complex overwrought supply chains where them.on't reposition the flipside, they are not so small they are beholden to one or to suppliers who are in china and therefore, any tariffs can in termsat a huge loss

7:20 pm
some of that gets. back. when we look at brazil, relay brazilian sovereign, because of the pension reform that bolsonaro looks be able to pass looks bigger than what the market expected. that should be another boost for brazilian debt. if the fede broadly, does ease more aggressively, we can use -- it should create a tailwind for em debt. that is why we like it more than emerging-market equities. debttoday, we have seen em outperforming equities by 1%. --shery: howry: much do you like the domestic story in china? max: i think there is a decent chance we will touch 6% this year.

china, which is such a big play within asia is not looking so hot. this will help to offset indonesia. it may look like a relative value case for some people in asia. in terms of the absolute direction, china really is the key for everybody, including, even if indonesia doesn't interest rate cut. they will still have to put that into line with what is going on in the rest of the economy, the rest of the region, and the world, from that point of view. right, strategist mark cranfield. can follow more on that story and all of today's trading on our markets live a blog. and you can go to mliv on the bluebird terminal. there you can get a market run down -- bloomberg terminal. you get a market run down and commentary by expert editors to find out what is affecting your investments right now. let's check in with first news with sue kanaan. hong kong protest continue

8:11 pm
i want you to take a look at this bloomberg terminal chart which shows the composition of that slowing chinese economy. you will see fluctuating raw materials and the services sector have been on the downward trend. and the activity data we are expecting is likely to show weakness with policy support taking time to kick in. the data leading up to this point points to that weakness with the friday trade data showing imports and exports much weaker than expected. ony're also poor ratings fixed asset industrial production in the first quarter. that was showing wobbly signs in april and got worse in may went around of $200 billion iteris kicked in. of $200 billion of tariffs kicked in. the chinese government has a fine line to walk when it comes to easing. they are trying to manage this economy which is slowing from double-digit growth.

actually moving ahead quickly. this bodes well for the trade negotiations. it is been reported that it is a precondition for beijing that this issue needs to be resolved for there to be a deal. this could also be a reflection of chip industry lobbying combined with political pressure from china. this does not mean that huawei is being removed from the blacklist. we heard a spokesperson say that they would prefer the company be removed from the entity list entirely, instead of individually having these temporary licenses apply to u.s. mentors. we talked about this earlier, -- u.s. vendors. there's going to be significant backlash from congress. we have heard from lawmakers that they do not want this national security issue at the trade negotiations to be mixed together. and they do not want trump letting up on huawei , regardless of what it means for trade. shery: especially being used as a bargaining chip. thank you, selina wang, air
8:14 pm
china correspondent in beijing. fromre correspondent merrill lynch. she joins us from hong kong. let's talk about monetary policy. on the bloomberg showing what the pboc has been doing. you see that rrr cuts, the targets of lending facilities, medium-term or long-term, but one of these tools, the one-year benchmark lending rates, where they have not moved since 2015. will they have to touch that, given that we are expect a potential continuation of the slowdown? >> sure. fund the pboc will introduce more policy easing as the growth weakness, as more sides of growth weakness emerged
8:15 pm
in the coming months. the pboc will likely keep the interbank liquidity to boost credit growth, and partly we think that pboc is likely to cut its benchmark interest rate in september and december, after the u.s. fed starts a new rate cut cycle. viewsf the popular currently are that once the fed starts to cut rates, the pboc does not have to follow, because the pboc can cut or introduced interest rate reforms. it is important for the pboc to send a clear policy easing signals by cutting interest rates. we had talked about that extensively come about the pboc going its own way, right? what is it mean if, as you say, they actually move on the
8:16 pm
benchmark interest rate. what is it mean for other policy tools, like the fiscal side of things, were we have seen extensive tax cuts, and other support for the economy? >> right. so, for example, the fiscal policy easing measures like the vat cut which came into effect in april, is supposed to help costorporate to lower burdens and to regain margin growth. however, the data it has yet to be quite notable. for sample, manufacturing and investment -- for example manufacturing and investment growth has lowered from 12% last year to now just 3%. so the data on growth continue to weaken. government and policymakers probably need new tools to put sediments and -- to move sediment sentiment and cushion the growth slowdown.
8:17 pm
one consideration behind a potential pboc interest rate cut is that the global easing cycle has already started. we are going to be likely to see july.d to cut rates in and more central banks are going to cut our bank of america merrill lynch expects 26 out of 33 central banks would have , and haverest rates lowered policy rate forecasts for them by the year 2020. the pboc may not want to be perceived as the last man standing. enoughbeing proactive amid the current world slowdown. paul: i want to return to the number of the second-quarter gdp. we are expecting a 6.2% but if
8:18 pm
we jump into the bloomberg terminal and take a look at this chart, the variance between the estimates and the actual number we get is zero. so, something that often comes up with the gdp numbers, doesn't really give us a true picture? are the forecast are super accurate? or is this number predetermined? or is it better to look to other data to get a true idea of the state of the chinese economy? growth does look a little bit smooth in the past few quarters. down majorbreak trends coming from industrial sector growth, it is showing weakness especially manufacturing amid current u.s. china trade tensions. in the services sector, you will probably see a mixed picture, for example an i.t. services which has been going as a very fast-paced -- at a fast pace and the fat past quarters they show
8:19 pm
signs of moderation in the current u.s. china trade tensions. sectors likec financial may be holding up and doing ok. i think the details will give us more hint of how the current economy is being affected by various factors. paul: i just want to care thoughts as well on how the yuan fits into all of this. we have seen a strengthening recently. tochina's data continues decline, how long do you think policymakers would tolerate this strengthened you on? summit sent g20 more positive signals on the progress of the current u.s. china trade negotiations, the iss for very short-term probably going on the appreciation side. forecasting dcny
8:20 pm
7% by the third quarter and 6% by the end of the year. would have to introduce more of the easing measures on multiple fronts in order to drive the can -- the financial conditions more favorable when the chinese economy continues to slow. so, for example, cutting interest rates will be very important signal for them to do that. because when the other central banks globally are cutting rates, then cutting interest rates by the pboc would win some strengthen -- for the want not to strengthen too much against other national currencies -- for that yuan not to strengthen too much against other national currencies. shery: how healthy is a chinese

the u.s. dollar continues to weaken the expectation that the fed will start to cut interest rates at its next meeting at the end of the month. now. look at currency let's start off on the u.s. dollar. you have a chart on the u.s. terminal that shows these short positions continuing to build. how much more downside you see for the greenback? >> quite a lot. the key driver of the weakness we have seen in the past couple of months, partially reversed in the course of june, has been led by the precipitous decline if you like that we have seen in u.s. yields and differentials between the u.s. and the rest of the world. historically, those things clout with a bit of a lag. the onset -- those things play out with a lag. also the onset of every easing cycle, the u.s. dollar has always fallen initially. so it is expected unless the fed surprises the world by doing nothing. that means that by the end of
8:47 pm
the month there is scope for the u.s. dollar to weaken further from here. paul: let's talk about that fed easing cycle. we might get 25 basis points in june, -- in july, possibly 25 more before the end of the air. is there more to come? >> that is the question. the chicago fed head was out on friday talking about how 50 basis points should help get inflation expectations up. i'm not convinced, looking at the fed's preferred target of inflation. it still looks to us as though it is stuck around 1.5%. though we saw those slight upside surprises and producer prices on friday and consumer prices earlier last week, the readthrough from ppi and cpi to that deflator measure is almost nonexistent. we do not think that there is any evidence as yet that inflation is starting to track higher. so even if we get 50 basis points between now and year end, which is what we expect, and it is a consensus, we are far from
8:48 pm
convinced that it will be the end of the cycle. so if the economy looks like it is benefiting from that, the key will be whether we see any signs of inflation picking up. at the moment, inflation is hard-to-find. shery: what is it mean for the u.s. dollar long term. you see some weakening. the initial fed rate cuts. what happens afterwards and it seems as if the rest of the world is also weakening acke? >> the rest of the world has far less scope. of the world, there are scope for the nominal raised come close to zero. in mont terry -- and monetary theory it is hard to see how the bank of japan and the main -- the bank of england and the ecb can come close to what the fed can do. differentials will continue to play out negatively for the u.s. dollar. we also look at the dollar structurally and from a
8:49 pm
long-term cyclical perspective. there is no denying that the u.s. dollar is significant he overvalued. that figures more into our longer-term or medium-term forecast. foot -- if the fed ends up only needing to do 50 basis points, and we see easing elsewhere, the u.s. dollar will stay strong for longer. shery: we continue to hear chatter about the u.s. potentially getting into the fx markets, with the president being so focused on the strength of the dollar. to give toedibility those people? >> not very much. except we have a trump presidency. and the fickleness with which he has tended to operate. this obviously means we cannot dismiss out of hand the risk that he does actually instruct the treasury that he wants the fed to intervene. the history of intervention is only effective when it is
8:50 pm
correlated with oh g10 partners. it has to work with monetary policy, and if the fed's easing that would be supportive. but the risks of this sort of threat, and a lot of banks are talking about the risk. we hear that president trump when he was interviewing his perspective fed nominees was sounding them out about the strength of the dollar. so it is a threat we cannot dismiss out of hand. but i still think the chances of that threat turning to reality anytime soon are still pretty slim. i would put them at no more than 10%. the big theme of the day paul: . paul: we are going to be getting out of china gdp, industrial production, retail sales. in the face of a weakening chinese economy, we had seen the yuan strengthening. how long do you see that trend persisting? >> for as long as there is not a breakdown in the resumption of talks between the u.s. and china. i think while those talks are seem ongoing, they do not to be hopping face-to-face or
