in three months. it doesn't look like the probability of the fed moving is dissipating at the moment. how does all of this translate? how does the missile launches translate?how did the dollar translate? this is what we have. the msci asia-pacific down .3%. we were celebrating on the upside, topics down, nikkei down. the hang seng is really taking a smack. it was a good story on the back of manufacturing, but there is no doubt about it, geopolitical risk is rife into the g-20. aussie doller down. the rba leads the cash rate unchanged at 1.5%. wage growth remains low. however this is likely to continue, and there is nobody brave enough to take the first step. everybody is talking about the shift in the central bank language, the nuance and
intonation, but nobody has begun power to follow through. -- nymex crudeil down .5%, breaking the longest winning streak this year. includingction itself libya and nigeria is on the up. u.s. inventory data dropped by 2.5 million barrels a day. we have rebounded from one of the biggest declines this year. it is geopolitics most likely sot drives the gold story that's the state of play on the markets. we will talk about what it means for currencies over the next hour. let's get to the first word news with juliette saly. mastece: in the u.s., a computer error caused confusion among traders as wall street closed early.
the operator was conducting a test of its pricing data see that led to third-party providers showing wild moves in shares including google and microsoft that never occurred. nasdaq says it is working with the providers to solve the issue. chinese president xi jingping is in russia for talks with president putin. the foreign affairs adviser described relations as "the best in history." meanwhile, according to the chinese news agency, they oppose the u.s. deployment of missiles in north korea and have agreed to settle the korean peninsula issue through dialogue. the u.s. federal reserve chair janet yellen was hospitalized over the weekend for treatment of a minor infection. she has left hospital and is heading home. she was admitted on friday and released yesterday. she's returning to washington and expects to resume her schedule is claimed this week. global news, 24 hours a day, powered by over 2600 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries.
you can find more stories on the bloomberg at top . oil in late asian trade. we are seeing some pretty good upside coming through from asx 200, led by these energy players. we saw oil in the new york session rise for its eighth consecutive section. a lot of lenders have started to raise rates for interest only loans, despite the rba meeting the official cash rate on hold. the nikkei is losing some of its earlier gain, this as we see the yen rise on report that north korea has armed another missile. we are seeing movement into safe havens like the yen and gold. having a look at the stocks, tech stocks have certainly been the losers in the region, and a wall street journal report says sony shares are better value than nintendo, which is down 4.5% of the tokyo session. petrochina has essential movement in the oil space. australian energy players looking good, petrochina up by
3.4%. mentioned, the rba leaving rates on hold at 1.5%, the 10th month in a row -- the 10th meeting in a row, i should say. move,s why the rba won't a lot of analysts saying the are caught between a rock and a hard place. thatwhite line is australian house price index, home prices have doubled since 2009 and at the same time you are being australian savings ratios fairly stagnant. will the rba follow in the short to near-term? a lot of analysts say it is hard to do when you are seeing the house price index continue to rise. manus: absolutely, that the conundrum, isn't it, from a global perspective. 10 sent is down
over 5%. -- tencent is down over 5%. n that internet giant in asia. let's state of play on the asian markets. andinternet mobile provider advertising e-commerce is technology in asia. let's talk about the politics and the tensions. north korea has fired another ballistic missile, the 11th test this year. the launch comes at a time of renewed tensions between the u.s. and china, about kim jong -un's regime. peter, thank you for joining us. the 11th missile test since he came to power. is this a significant warning shot ahead of g20?
how should we interpret this aggravation? >> first of all, the timing was very intriguing, obviously, because it is right on the eve of july 4, independence day in the u.s., and a few days away from the g-20 conference. this comes right after china's delegation in new york at the united nations basically said that things could get out of control, and there were dangerous consequences as a result of these tensions on the korean peninsula. what's more significant is what we are expecting in about an hour. north korea is apparently going to make some announcement. this is very unusual. they never preannounce anything, but they said they will make a major announcement, and we suspect the missile test this morning is significant. there's speculation that it ,ould have been an icbm, which
if they take it further, could reach the continental u.s., particularly the west coast. depending on the announcement, that could have a significant turn on the tensions here in south korea. manus: interesting, perhaps markets are underestimating the ability of north korea. let's talk about the responses . i am looking at donald trump and what he treated, "perhaps china will put the heavy on north korea and and this nonsense." that is a tweet from him. we've just had this one line coming across the bloomberg terminal, xi and putin opposed deployment in south korea. the chinese president xi jingping and vladimir putin agreed to settle the north
korean issue via dialogue, two very different rhetorics coming, one from the west, one from the east. >> yes. and again, this test today just makes everything so sticky, because as you know, whenever north korea tests missiles, there's further resolved by the u.s. and south korea to have this antimissile system. china flip side of that, and russia feel that this is a security risk, and therefore pushing it. this conflict is not going to go away. -- it'sng to dispute going to get worse, because of the test this morning. manus: peter, thank you so much. a live and breaking story. this missile test is the latest provocation to raise
tensions between the u.s. and china, and in a phone call with president trump yesterday, xi a negativerned of turn in relations
between the countries. of g10 fx at merrill lynch joins me. help me make sense of this. financial market stress. it is at the lowest point since 2014. when i look at the political stress in europe and the west, that is falling. when i look at china, north korea, around the australasian basin, that is rising. are markets mispricing political risk, in terms of their sanguine nature of financial ease? >> it is actually true that this political uncertainty has increased for a number of reasons, but markets are not pricing anything.
is very low,lity equity markets are at an all-time high, risk assets are performing very well. you could say this is a positive, but
if you think about it, if you are an investor, it is difficult to position for such risks. --y would take north korea take north korea as an example. it is a slow-moving accident. how do you trade it? when should you position for it? things can go wrong today, in a year, in a few years. as an investor, you cannot miss the trend. you join the trend, you perform, but increasingly you are taking substantial risks. manus: how do you join that trend? we have a dollar-young board, all yens together. i'll give yen this, it has delivered inrbatim
terms of risk off momentum. is that the vicarious trade that is underpriced in your opinion? >> definitely. if we get some of this political risk, the yen would be the one to strengthen. what's interesting is when you look at market this year, it's the first time we are not in a typical environment. if you look at the rates market it is trading everywhere. , the yen is trading in a risk off environment. there are a lot of inconsistencies in the markets today. manus: there are huge inconsistencies. the latest story we have is, of course, the bank of japan. the reason i am focused on that is because abe had a bit of an upset. stories fromg politicians talking about maybe
it's time to change. unchanged,t rates but as far as japan is concerned, do you think they will be forced into some kind of less easy turn? do you think eroded comes under pressure to keep his job into shift the yield target? >> we believe not. we believe the boj actually would be the exception. the market has been speculating, but the bank of japan has been very clear that until inflation if they to present, give up now, it would be a tremendous shot to the credibility. mistake be another huge to do this now, so we believe this would be the exception
compared to other banks. manus: we will talk more about the central bank and virgin says and who has the ability to move. he stays with us. highlights for your day ahead. china's xi jingping will meet with russia's vladimir putin in moscow. the redrow modi becomes the first indian prime minister to visit israel. and justin trudeau is down in dublin before flying to edinburgh. a celtic theme. coming up, we look ahead to the fed minutes from the last month's meeting. this is bloomberg. ♪
function on your bloomberg. wn 1.6% in financials. look -- inll in nc a and see the biggest issues at play. the banks are down. 1.34%.ff there is this shakedown in terms of technology, banks. juliette saly went through the numbers and she is back with the business flash. juliette: thank you. santander has set a deal to the takeover failing banco popular. -- its it plans a profit also said the price of its 7 billion euro capital raising, saying it will sell 1.60 4
billion shares. former barclays executives have told a london court they will plead not guilty to charges they conspired to commit fraud. are the mostos senior you came banking executives to face criminal charges since the financial crash. it's about fees they made available to qatar. the head of the italian banking association has told bloomberg that the liquidation of lenders in progress to recap was a "turning point" for the financial sector. they also discussed consolidation amongst italy's banks. >> we'd probably end up with less than 100 or the banks or banking groups active in italy.
progress in the consolidation of the sector is already in place. we cannot exclude additional consolidation, but i think that consolidation at a european level could be welcomed. juliette: and that is your bloomberg business flash. manus: thank you very much. tomorrow, we are going to go ingo the first recent think on monetary policy, the minutes from the fed meeting. plus we get a gauge of the strength of the u.s. economy on friday, the all-important jobs report. the analysts say the jobless rate will have held at a 16 year low. the question for markets is, as a translated to a wage hike? is that a fair point? the market needs some validation on wages? it doesn't have it yet. it is the thorn in the global central bank story, but it is a
needle in janet yellen's side. >> that's another positive for the u.s. economy. we're at full employment, but wages are not rising. higher athave been this phase of the cycle. this is why i think the market does not expect that the fed will hike as fast as the dot plot is suggesting. manus: we will pull it up in a moment but look at this, the probability of a rate hike is actually the highest in three months, 42% since september. they do another hike this year? and talk to me about the divorce -- how do you bring those things closer together? >> we expect one more hike this
year and we expect three next year. the market expects a total of about 30 basis points by the end of 2018. not even a full hike this year, and no hikes next year. there is a divergence between the market and what the fed is telling us as we go into next year. i think the main reason -- the market believes that even though the global markets are doing it will not be hiking. that is not what the fed has been doing. i think they are trying to normalize policies. manus: they want something in the tank for when there are bad times around the corner. two-year notes were the highest since 2009.
so square that away for me in terms of the dollar charge we used at the start of the show. since back intion march, 2016, it looks like they have thrown in the towel. do you believe in being short the dollar given that there is a divorce between the dots and the market? point i wouldthis start considering long dollar trades, which i think have gone too far. positioning definitely at this stage is a at historically low levels from th dolla. the dollar is still overvalued but this is because sterling, yen, and euro are historically very weak for different reasons but when you look at the differentials, particularly if it goes at the rate the dot plot
suggests, the dollar should be stronger. manus: where is the biggest return? is it long dollar -- i will talk about the ecb in a moment, but it has more room to move than the bank of japan so where do you want to be long dollar? >> i would go for profits from e.m. trade. concernit's really a and it is very vulnerable to any risk off market move. long dollar-yen because of diverging monetary policies. we believe the boj will stick to the current framework and i believe they will be more than markets expect. manus: frontrunning the schedule, we like that. the head of g10 fx at merrill lynch. there's a new french enlightenment.
matt: 1:30 a.m. in new york. manus: you might be out till rating the fourth of july area -- july. index 9%,erg dollar that is the state of play. happy fourth of july. how are those markets looking? u.s. markets are closed. japan, hong kong, korea higher. here the breakdown of industry groups them a a top -- i.t. and
tech stocks leading. energy stocks gaining. gain in financials but not enough to miss the overall benchmark. -- lift the overall benchmark. the aussie dollar is being watched closely falling now, erasing earlier gains after the rba left its benchmark rate unchanged area that would -- was not the surprise. -- turns a hawkish term that was expected in the markets. perhaps following the global central banks. we did get a statement similar to last time. we are at 70 .06. we have seen it rise to a five-week high versus the kiwi and this is the aussie dollar spot heading toward a resistance level dating back two years. we are off by .61%. same --been seeing the
safe haven trades live some steam, part of that was on a stronger dollar, the dollar jumping the most in two weeks but higher bond yields hurting gold somewhat. we are seeing a revival today. it can see the end of the chart. fired area test ballistic missile. dropping in yesterday's session. oil banks having a turnaround, halting its gains after its longest winning streak am a almost an 11% gain in the past four sessions. we have data showing opec production in june climbed to its highest level this year. we have the u.s. inventory data. at 46 dollars a barrel. manus: this is what is on the front cover. it is philip hammond and this is about the tone, the internation
in terms of the brexit negotiations, the cover story and an amicable divorce. wants a shared solution for its divorce from the eu, chancellor philip hammond has been helping business leaders make the case for us was transitional arrangement. he said that the country must keep spending under control. move in the u.k. to look again at public sector pay in terms of the political losses from the tories and the more recent tragic incident in the west of london. the next-door is about sweden. is yvonneditch the today, that is a question today. 65% in a survey say that will be the case.
chancing -- a scrapping the chance of a rate cut. the central bank is expected to keep the rate on hold at minus 0.5%. , the 11thocuses in camele test since kim jong to power. donald trump has twittered that they might put a heavy move on north korea and end this nonsense once and for all. south korea's of the missile flew 578 miles. jinping and mr. putin saying they would like a discussion for the solution. the president meant well -- emmanuel macron had a major speech. tocalled on proletarians
revive the nation's creativity. macron also remarked that france's role in reviving ambition in the eu. >> it is up to france to take initiative and i want to do it. in the months to come, thanks to the close relationship i have established in particular with the german chancellor, before the end of the year, everywhere in europe, we will launch democratic conventions to reform europe with its core political project, its first ambition to unite people. paris.let's cross to good to see you this morning. what were the highlights of macron's speech, were you in mind? whatine: at least that is macron try to do. the goal was not to give monday of reforms and to make big announcements but to say that his vision, his intellectual and
philosophical view for france. he gathered his 900 mps in versailles to tell them he was going to cut their numbers by ready to and he was use a referendum to do so if needed. he said he wanted to introduce some representation in parliament to give a large -- a louder voice to smaller parties including the far right. he said he would lift the state of emergency that france has been living in since the wave of terrorist attacks in 2015 by the end of this year. manus: we just saw the pictures of macron addressing congress area spectacular elementary building. forit -- put it in context us how special and address like this is and why he chose to do this now area -- now.
is special. the former president holland only did it after the attacks in paris in november 2015. this is very special. macron once again to show that he will -- he has this image of a powerful president. the french press has reacted. he was always -- already nicknamed jupiter. now the press as you can see on this newspaper is calling him the sun king. you see many people in theailles, the first active presidency.
manus: let's stay with europe and talk about the central bank. holocene makers took a more hawkish tone. and the reserve bank of australia left it rates unchanged. unchanged,ves rates we wait for the day for the central bank the ecb seems to be better positioned to catch up with the fed versus the rest of them. is that an overly hawkish take? the ecb will have to in the program next to because of
technical constraints. they're not willing to relax the limit. there is a expiration date. falling, we expect inflation to fall further next year. incentive is to stretch qe as much as possible so we do believe that it will stretch the end of 2018. they can keep policy rates low for as long as it takes. there likely to bring they rates back 20 in 2019. only afterrease inflation is the target of 2%. banks areral different case. there can playing catch-up with the ecb but now there is less incentive area they are moving toward the exit. the data does not justify the
policy stance. we do not expect a hawkish turn but the language is sounding more balanced. the currencies are offering, they are coming out as the winners. as speculation was scaled. i'm thinking the end, the swedish coda -- krone. that is the biggest opportunity, would you want to be long sek in this decision or in the near marketsanos: how the reacted, they are not buying the response. higher in markets where the data has a much better than the central bank will
justify. there is some merit to it. positioning might be a concern. kiwi we like where the market has been short. this is the next step in this hawkish turn. we like it. leading the majors a little bit. thanos: this is where position of -- positioning is less entrenched. manus: taking everything back, if i look at the euro, manufacturing data came out yesterday. strong, if you look at the euro area as a whole, the velocity behind the euro is very strong. positioning is very strong in terms of the euro. momentum fortrong the euro. haveer you suggest we may done the near turn damage.
we were down 10 tips this morning. you have a slightly contrary and view. if all the world is long the euro you're not. thanos: at this point i would be short. i do not expect that they can decouple for so long. when you look at data have been surprising. for these to be we are expecting a march lower -- much lower exit. major policyct any reforms. this debate is going to be difficult. the experience with the euro so far is they respond to the crisis. manus: the chart i have got for you here -- live tv is never kind to you. where is anna edwards when you need her? this is the budn move.
i want to tie back to your thoughts. move.is is the bund do think the market has riced itself to the extreme in terms of the hawkish tone question mark this goes back to the first question. has the market over arched itself in terms of the upside or the damage the ecb could do? thanos: it is not a clear picture. yields might be a better indicator on with the market expect where the ecb. the market might be how long policy rates would remain low. the ecb introduced qe, the selloff would be the trade if the ecb must too fast. given that we expect a slow exit we will still be long that the fact that it is not selling off
as much, the market expects an exit they do not expect a mistake. long: if you want to be the euro and long the euro against the dollar, where's the stuffing off point? whenever the euro approaches 115 you hear some comments from the ecb sources, they try to talk the euro down. this is what happened last week. that is why we are -- we have seen the euro-dollar so it is safer to be short the euro on these levels. stays thanos vamvakidis with the daybreak team. bloomberg 10 tv .you do get it has video streaming, everything, the charts, the functions, everything you see on the screen, you can click on it. you can ask the guest of

, youf: that is why mentioned the key point, there is unlikely to be another extension, we understand that the letter in terms of the formal response has been handed over to kuwait. we did pick up some additional feedback from the saudi foreign minister, he was speaking with the german foreign minister in a press conference. they will read through the letter and they will prepare an answer. the interesting shift in town is important to underscore here. the first time there seem to be a bit more of a reconciliatory stance. -- we see we need qatar as a neighbor, as a friendly country and also pointing out that progress has been made but it is not enough as it stands. they will prepare that response. we did also get a bit of a reaction from turkey. they are saying that they believe dialogue can work it out. in terms of what is happening
with asset classes, we will show you this chart. you can see there has been a lot of selling throughout the month of june but look at what foreign investors have been doing ahead of the deadline. they have been buying on the dip month that is where the money is going at the moment. they see a lot of upside potential or see this as an opportunity. manus: always looking for the opportunity. trying to rebalances market is a bit like the holy grail for opec. in terms of doing that, since november of last year, who is the culprit in terms of this pump if production question mark we are seeing stories this morning, we have libya, nigeria, they are saying they have the exemptions. who is the culprit when it comes to the bump in production? chief: those are the culprits, equatorial guinea helped raise the overall level as well. important underscore that non-opec -- nigeria and libya to

us. looking into the long-term we believe the trend will be lower. china is on a downward growth path. emerging markets are becoming more energy efficient. manus: you have made two key points. the shorts are getting a little bit squeezed. will canada all caps on last moment with -- all caps a last-minute in terms of doing a rate hike and changing rates this summer? thanos: they do have a housing mobile which is difficult to address with monetary policy. you do not want policy to be to lose but you cannot tighten too fast. the fed is tightening so this makes their job easier.

equity exposures of 250, 350, the brexit barometer is something we are keeping an eye on. brexit barometer is moving aggressively. we are almost back where we were, we are back when -- where we were when we voted for brexit. -- cost lances, sterling consequences, sterling people are saying it is overvalued. only the mad would he invested. are those overly aggressive in terms of the call? when: it is difficult to work out on the medium to long-term the positive and metals of why you would want to buy sterling. i would agree and the play that we are trying to get our clients and investors to understand is the short-term equity markets could still push out reasonable good numbers especially from an earnings per spec of based on
export activity. manus: perhaps it is too st ressed to say. non-u.k.,you are a nonsterling investor and your hedging currency it could reduce the earnings potential from the asset class. markets arequity barnstorming, we had a bit of a raffle and technology. the rates market is resetting itself, u.s. government bond yields are rising, bunds are rising. there is a definite shift in the u-curves. what is going on there? one is risk on and the other is risk off which is the bond market. how do you want to be positioned, you sign -- sound moderately bullish, is that
extrapolating too far, are you fully engaged or risk on on?mark wayne: -- or risk wayne: there is a tension with having a will respond position. the geopolitical environment antinues to pop up and become worry for investors but interesting especially in the last six to eight weeks, we have seen a significant risk case we one had around europe based results, that gives us some comfort around globalizing risk around the world versus having it more concentrated where we were in 2016. manus: and when you drive into work and you see another missile launch from north korea, the u.s. response, the chinese response, and the russian portfolioas a

takes, they last for about two years. we are not that far into low-volume. what does it take in your mind to change the perspective on volatility question mark they say it takes a war or a recession. wayne: we have looked at a number of different conditions. to 1941 and looked at various different markets around the world. what is interesting is fuel in a bull market and you have a shock, you get a natural immediate reaction. marketed eight days, the lost 4.5% but within 45 days you were back to where you started and the preceding one to two years you had a very strong equity market reaction as well at 10 to 20% growth. what we are seeing is you can and itis sense of worry
is climbing a wall of worry. you can have a recessional risk, more of a significant event. if you are a long-term investor you need to hold your nerf. it could be the worst time to sell. manus: there is no alternative. tell us that. we were funded, it talking during the break and we were talking about high yields. talk me through the shift in your perspective on high yields. it has shifted and it has consequences for your equity portfolio as well. wayne: if we go back 12 to 18 months we have been underweight investment-grade credit and we felt that by taking risk within markets we are better paid to take that risk in high yields. we had significant over weights in global high-yield markets. we have used the wrist position in the market -- risk position to fund globalization of our

extremely attractive for a range of investors when you get to certain yield points. a u.s.u're talking about dollar, u.s. investor perspective, there is a sense they should retrace higher. the attractive flow mechanism in terms of global governments works. equities, then euro currency had -- was run in done. , fully invested, do you believe in the great european recovering -- recovery? wayne: i think macron is the game changer. theave to break from glassful versus the glass half-empty. so being very realistic. the last two years we have had so many reasons why europe would not grow, would not run and it has disproved that. we are modestly positive. country,ur top germany, france, spain.
