runningand i am oliver -- oliver. all three indexes finishing a new highs. about why the second inning of brexit may be worse than the first. ministerjapan's prime -- japan's emperor may want to retire. we look at how this could affect the prime minister. oliver: and we have the charts you cannot miss. scarlet: all three benchmark indexes closing at record highs yet again. another day, another record. but when you look at the volume, trading on the dow and s&p were a double digit percentages below average. it is mid-august, after all, and earnings season is a sickly
over. everyone is -- is basically over. i will point out that if you look at the value of stocks, there are a lot of ways to look at volume, and the total value is pretty high. safety arease saw of the market lag while some riskier areas are doing pretty well. ander: i'm going to jump in take a deeper dive into some market minutes. s&p is pretty interesting. we have obviously had a big shift in the past couple of weeks. doing well sectors today, materials, industrials, energy. they are on a rebound after not doing so well. strengthen oil after a bear market recently. we are looking at some sectors that have not been doing well. this is year to date for
utilities and telecom. still very far up, but hurting today, hurting recently. we will see how that changes as we go into september. out,ly, as we just pointed this is incredible, the five-year look at the nasdaq. last one to cross the all-time high recently. another day, another high. here is the u.s. 10 year yield, down a little bit today, up on the day, but low in the grand scheme of things. one market we don't talk about often is the chinese sovereign bond market. there is a new low on the 10 year bond there.
of the samea lot reasons people are talking about everywhere, slow growth, inflation, the reach for safety. scarlet: this is slow for china in terms of growth. aussieking a look at currency, rebuilding momentum after highs of last week. is at ae british pound fresh 30 year low. it has dipped below 129. 128.er, it dipped below we will get the first heard data on the economy after the brexit vote -- hard data on the economy after the brexit vote in the coming days. people are bearish. had another nice update today.
it was below $40 a barrel at the beginning of august, around august 2, and everyone was turning negative. it has come back nicely. once again, people are optimistic. has helped the commodity currencies as well. those are today's market minutes. let's take a deep five into bloomberg. investors love affair with emerging-market assets. let's focus on the top panel. line is the forward pe for emerging markets. line is the four p four developed stocks. -- forward pe for developed stocks. we have different axes. the bottom panel is a relative valuation, the spread between
the two. in other words, people are paying the most in three years to own emerging-market stocks. >> people love the emerging markets again. homebuilder confidence today. i always like looking at this report. i looking at the regional breakdown. the top two lines, blue and ,hite, the west and south homebuilders are still pretty optimistic about those areas. the line at the bottom is the northeast. happeningothing here,to build homes. it is either too hot or too cold to move here. the west is doing great, south is doing great, everything else, not so hot. oliver: interesting. i am not sure i would have expected that. i am going to play semantic games for my deep dive.
markets ing at their a bull market. we are looking at s&p -- bear markets inside bull markets. of 2015, we set the high. we set a new high in july. we tipped then went back up, kind of trended sideways, and two 10% corrections. if you try to care arise how how manyharacterize companies went into bear markets, it's a lot. these are companies that lost 20% or more and did not regain it by july. that lookede similar to that is when we did go into a bear market in 2011. scarlet: very cool. david from bank of america
joins us now. thanks for coming onto the show. it's been too long. you said the defining characteristic of the market been the has simultaneous rally of everything, stocks, bonds, it's all up. are an investor and you want a portfolio that has different parts working at different times, what do you do when everything is moving in the same direction? >> it's funny because in the last month, every client i have spoken to, except for the risk parity guys, is telling me this has been a disaster year. investors are having a very difficult year except for risk parity guys. the guys at bridgewater, the guys who are running systematic strategy based on the idea of risk parity. they are killing it this year. joe: this is a chart of bank of
america multi-asset strategy going back five years. you can see that it has been a rocket ship. >> exactly. typically, these portfolios are long treasuries, long stocks. in whichsituation stocks and bonds are going to do during a phase of monetary easing. to removes going accommodation gradually but the u.s. is going to continue to import qe from japan and europe. that is what is so striking. if you look at the basic financial index, we have seen a dramatic easing of the index since brexit. we have started to pick up data in the u.s. that the best way to the second half of the year is more monetary easing. oliver: we talk about the fed model that says that equity and bond yields should be
closer than they are right now. they could both lose value together. have exposure to both. could they get hit harder going into the second half or is there a shift? >> the last time we saw something like this was 2012. 2013, we had the whole thing that really fetching's up -- really shook things up. could sayurse, you that going into jackson hole, right now, the market is pricing in less than a 10% chance of a hike in september. we are starting to see riskier assets doing well.
people are getting more confident about growth outlook. other aspect of this, probably the biggest as far as the market is concerned, is the election. way the markety can be right is if we end up with gridlock. , meaning, ifcome there is a clean sweep, we will probably see a big change in fiscal policy next year. scarlet: we love it when guests mention proprietary indexes. volatility inut the different asset classes and how it has come down quite a bit. we talked earlier about positioning. positioning right now seems to be trumping fundamentals. pronounced this
year than in past years? >> i think the main reason is investors are struggling. are you going to do the same trade as everybody else? keepe trade goes down, you your job. if you are the only person and the trade goes wrong, you will probably lose your job. redeem andave to sell whatever is overweight. whatever is overweight is underperforming. question.o it is almost at the point where investors are reconciled to the idea that fundamentals don't matter anymore. so, what specifically do you recommend they do as opposed to just chasing what is going up? since 1980you and i,
five, going into elections, people worry about uncertainty. right now, the way the market is positioned, very long risk parity, suggests the market thinks this will be a walk in the park for hillary clinton. the market is looking to play forward with that transition, regardless of what your view may be. the market is factoring in a clean sweep. underpricedare very in the market right now. scarlet: thank you. you are staying with us. careg up, does anyone about the yen? the answer coming up. ♪

capital outflows are slow and they are not intervening much. i will tell you why that is important. i had lunch with my real estate agent the other day, and he was telling me that last year, 21 percent of apartments sold in new york city were sold to chinese investors. this year, it is 0%. it is impossible for the chinese to get authorization to make foreign investments. the chinese government has cracked down and closed the borders. tos is why china has not had .ell commodities or stocks depreciation has been fairly limited. right now, you would favor a long u.s. dollar versus the chinese currency. depreciation is happening at a slower rate.
>> for one thing, the less the market cares about the market , the less it going to go. that withstanding the fact that china's stock market has been struggling, they have not cut interest rates. everybody else has cut interest rates except for china. don't want more leverage. they don't want to cut interest rates because they don't want more debt. the only thing left on the table is weaker r&b. so you have to believe r&b has room to fall. let's talk about japan. after recent elections, there was a hope there would be more vigorous stimulus. visit toaid they would their monetary framework. what are the implications for japan and around the world?

nasdaq is rolling out a function called extended light orders to compete with idx. the startup begins trading on friday with a 350 microsecond delay in orders. a speed bump. betty: i like how you are bored with record after record. good to see you. bob: good to be here, betty. betty: how is this different from the idx speedbump? talked tolk -- we everyone interested in one thing we heard loud and clear, especially from a technology focus, is that people like a speedbump where you are delaying the onslaught of technology as progress. whatever it is today from a technology point of view looks archaic from five years from
now. we wanted to do something that was positive and powering. if you want to put an order in od of time, weeri will give you a reward. that is large and important. betty: we are going to bump you up. bob: you will go to the front of the line. you will get earlier execution. if you are a bit slower, you could be a microsecond, a day, a week slower, that if you are willing to make a commitment you will get the reward of going to the front of the line. betty: what happened? you protested, you did not want x and wereapprove ie against the speed bumps. bob: we were against the process. carrynk the sec did not out their responsibilities. the rule of the land says your quote has to be immediately accessible without artificial delay. if the sec wants to change that, commentd have gone to
and review and let the market adjust to that. did not happen. betty: you can't beat them, so join them? bob: no. we are objecting to the process. this order type we have to submit has to go through normal comment and review. in the past, we have tried to present to the commission something like a speed bump and it did not get approval. they did not want us to go through that process. we use that as a way to start thinking about how can we improve the investor experience in we have a lot of issues respect to the artificial delay being put in. what can we do? we want tors said have the ability to be rewarded by the fact that they are long-term investors that don't care about the microsecond differential. greateward as the advantage of being simple. when you think about a speed
bump, as you try to explain that to people, it is very complicated. orderlk about a limited that has a second duration to get to the front of the line. people understand that. betty: who was asking for that? bob: we have not found anybody who does not want this type of capability in the marking -- in the marketplace. the simplicity of it is what is appealing to a large number of people. adoptivethe initial will be the buy side, who does not care about the differential. i will give you two seconds to get to the front of the line. firm's think that the have engaged in high degrees of trading today and will find positive ways of using this. betty: some of the reaction to hearing about this has been, look, nasdaq, increasing it has
been focused on technology. bob: we have to be. betty: speed is everything in this market. at least, that is what it has been up to now. as technology is delivering more speed on that side of your business, why would you want to introduce a product that could slow that process down? bob: i will disagree with the comment that speed has been everything in the market. capital is a dominant factor in the market. if someone wants to commit to a buying or selling commitment, that is a difference there. we cannot be any position where we want to stop technology. technology will advance. the great part of this announcement is that in a simple way, we allow technology to continue. there is no artificial delay. -- youw have a choice now have a choice. it changes market structure where you can have the advantage by going to the front of the
line by making a commitment to the marketplace. betty: haven't you said before that introducing an order will complicate the markets even more? bob: if you have a speedbump microas 350 seconds seconds, someone will come out with 344 330. it simplifies the markets. me, iwas presented to said the genius of this is the simplicity. you make the commitment, you go to the front of the line. hard stop. the first thing we had was the market order. after that, people came up with a limit order. i submit that this advance where we have a limit order that has advantage based upon a commitment to it will represent a fundamental evolution of market structure similar to what we saw with limits coming in. betty: i can't let you go without talking about the ipo
market. we know how difficult it has been in the u.s. some companies on the pipeline are about to go public. i'm talking about asia in particular. they are looking for companies to break out into the public. we have seen asian companies want to stay there because they are getting higher valuation. how do you get them here? bob: i think the ipo market is disappointing but not dismal. betty: what is the difference? going public. are the window is not shut. we have seen a number of companies come public in the last couple of months. with respect to our attraction on a global basis, it comes down we have the depth of the quiddity, we have a strong analyst community, and to have your company fully valued over a long period of time, there is

why does nobody talk about it? the american public does not want to reduce entitlements. the american public still wants more for less. it is not the american way. it is not the system that is failing, it is us that is failing. why? we have built a prison in which we are the prisoners. we talk about the department of interior, department of energy, none of us have any idea what they do. the allocation of revenues to all of these massive departments across government are humongous. it is not just a distribution to us of what we see. somebody has to take accountability. what is that budget? where's the revenues going? eric: which is precisely why i asked. isn't this a clarion call or donald trump to take leadership on entitlement reform? yet there is not a word in his plan about entitlement reform. tom: not yes.
