a record shattering rally on wall street where the dow jones gained over a thousand points on wednesday that's a five percent and one of the strongest days for u.s. stocks in history. as european markets were closed for christmas of course they're back in action now our financial market correspondent ali bads joins us in frankfurt now and only from what i hear the dock certainly started to the day in negative territory not looking very good what's holding it back. you know you used the word action i wouldn't describe it that way here and i think the traders are also complaining a little bit about the kind of in between holidays and trading here but what's really gotten them worried and concerned is that roller coaster ride on wednesday this week it didn't just go up wednesday but it went down on monday and what's filtering through is the upsetting impression that pressure on the fed on the
independence of the u.s. central bank is for the moment perhaps a little bit less than it was but if the president continues that way it's going to be a major concern for the market considering the federal reserve's role in the markets and the economy worldwide and that's what's concerning people here ok a lot of concern your mentioning zaf just briefly any chance there for a year end rally. i wouldn't rule it out you can never rule it out especially with what went on in the past days but talking to people here no it's not going to come it was a bad year two thousand and eighteen it still is a traitor says and looking at two thousand one thousand it's not going to be better and i think he's speaking for a lot of people here in the market actually bought in frankfurt thank you so much. well german companies have mixed feelings about business prospects in twenty
nineteen their biggest concern is the export sector which could be impacted by the ongoing trade spat between the u.s. and china and of course the upcoming brics it's a survey by the german economic institution which i dealt with shows that many of the country straight associations lowered their expectations for twenty nine thousand on the upside to germany's domestic economy is robust and the construction industry has benefited from it more on the economic outlook and to the drivers behind it i'm joined now by mr in hutto director of the cologne based institute for the german economy good to have you with us professor we do according to the federal ministry of economics the german economy will grow only moderately in the coming year the forecast says one point three percent you have a similar view. i share this view of our forecast as one point two that's nearly the same that means that the high dynamic we realized in the last few years is fading out and we see this also in the mirror of the business climate the business
climate came down during the year two thousand and eighteen or so ray on economic runs which makes clear this is all to chew for two thousand and nineteen so the climate is more depressed than twelve months before what's the reason for this is a geo political or other problems homemade i think the most important to reasons behind the rising uncertainty in the international market on international trade policy and the future of the multilateral order for these world economy and this has a lot to do with the conflict between the u.s. and china are the trump administration is still a risk and we also see a lot of uncertain risk of risk in europe the brics we don't know what will happen in january we have new discussions between the european commission and italy and also some problems in front so that the the risk from international scene are rising and there's a most. porton for the press climate whenever our own economic situation is and
certain we tend to invest less what what state german companies and when it comes to investment this is an interesting point when we look in our server to see that despite of the fact of the depressed climate we see a strong and stable investment activity for the next year as well as in ploy and decide something to do with the fact that there are some decoupling between the investment activity and the promise of one hand and the business climate on the other hand why it's huge is a fact that you have to invest if you have to invest over time to stay in a way to have to be in line with a digital transformation so there's an ongoing need to spite of the business climate to invest and this is what quite is nearly the same result in twelve months ago investment will stay strong what drives the investment is it perhaps digitalisation yes it's true you have to you have to invest in as and the company level in different ways for the digital transformation of your business model industry few people know less and as you know the german brand you have to invest
in the interaction in the networks and the platforms you will use and you will end on so it's an ongoing challenge and nobody knows exactly what will be the future on digitization but everybody knows that he has to in west in the infrastructure in the human capital you need for the do the transformation all right miss and here to there from the german economic institute thank you so much. venezuela's government has been trying to solve the country's beleaguered economy from printing more money to creating its own crypto currency but with little to no effect and now the government plans to tamper with the country's cocoa business cocoa trade us are a lot. of trade or freddie padrón has had his share of challenges in venezuela has had to deal with highway robberies and kidnapping but now he has another headache the government. the governor says he wants to create a company to export. if he's the only one buying it creates
a monopoly it would mean a fixed price and that would be devastating for growers there has to be supply and demand where everyone buys and you sell to the one with the best products. in the drones as truckloads of his cocoa were held by the government and when they were released some eighty seven tons of cocoa worth around one hundred thirty thousand dollars were missing other traders in his region have reportedly had similar experiences in recent months but the government says it only wants to catch the fish at the checkpoint. our aim is to break up the gangs and when we speak with producers they realize that we are speaking the truth a lot of it is just about building trust they were used to a different government but did not get involved that didn't do anything. but the traders are skeptical and some of them now prefer to hold on to the harvest rather
