11:08 am
showing inflation is dropping further and further below the fed 2% target. what will we learn from the minutes? >> they will discuss inflation quite a bit. we do not think it will reach a final conclusion around that. what they have been arguing and highlighting is that there are some components of that which are transitory. that will be a debate and the conclusion is telegraphed. the interesting thing they will decipher will mostly be about the central market debate, which is do they pause in september and discuss -- announced be reduction -- announced be production or hike? you may get some hints. mark: what happens to the dollar? >> that is a difficult question,
11:09 am
the dollar has mainly been weakened. earlier balance sheet and the later the hikes, the steeper the curve. the slightly stronger the dollar. our main forecast is that they probably deliver one more hike. and then they do the balance sheet at the end of the year which we will talk about a roughly stable dollar in the next few months and a flatter curve. vonnie: higher front in rates. what were the conditions have to be to have to change? when what a tapering have to begin, for example? -- when youtions talk about the drivers, together with slightly soft inflation numbers, you are seeing good growth and easing in financial
11:10 am
conditions. that may be driving the decisions from the fed. with respect to the talent sheet, an issue board -- balance sheet, when it comes to actual hikes, we will remain to be seen. an earlier hike around september is more likely. most importantly, regardless of the timing of the hike, the balance sheet unwind issue is to a large extent in the price. what is not in the price is a reasonable basis tightening over the next couple of years. the fed is confident -- the feds confidence may force repricing. 18-24 monthsgher ahead. vonnie: speculation in the market that, given how the chairperson ship of the fed may change i february, along with
11:11 am
composition, the fed is eager to get this policy normalization underway and well underway by february. where may we be by then? >> i think they have telegraphed their intentions. clear.iscussions are we think that they will probably start unwinding. the unwind of the balance sheet will end up with a larger balance sheet than what the market expects and allow 3.3 trillion, that is in a long horizon. after 2020. that is priced on the long end of the curve. in terms of rate hikes, assuming that the conditions are easier, assuming that equity markets do not selloff, you are looking at one more hike this year and three more hikes next year. mark: let's talk about potential

11:19 am
they track the base so they do not undo progress on inflation. they have to adapt to the circumstances which is why they probably need to maintain a label of flexibility. mark: whose job you in the least? yellen, draghi, carney? they all have ethical jobs and are capable people. -- difficult jobs and are capable people. draghi needs to manage the pace in a well-defined direction. in the u.s., still questions as to how far we go. we no longer at a zero balance and we can drop or down from here, the cycle will determine these things. they need to be cautious in a different way. when it comes to japan, an interesting view, our economist
11:20 am
has an interesting view, he sees underlying signs of price pressures. coming up very gradually. the bank of japan will probably come in the face of that, stay dovish to foster further inflation. which probably makes them more comfortable. at least the way they are forecasting. mark: thank you for joining us. conversation. still ahead, u.s. payment processing company vanity has made a play for world bank, shares of the u.k. firm are -- after jpmorgan step aside from a potentially competing bid. not back obligated and we will discuss next. -- not that complicated and we will discuss next. ♪

11:24 am
mark: why the jpmorgan walk away , what is this conflict of interest talk? >> they goes to the heart of how u.k. companies do business, they have corporate brokers, something you do not see in the u.s. a corporate broker is your bank, which advises you, they are on the register. they are typically supposed to defend the company, and now you have the situation are you are supposed to defend the company but also your parent business is making a potential bid for the company. i think the market thought jpmorgan would stay in there and that is why the shares have fallen as much as they did today on the back of a bid. vonnie: it is the perfect beenny for vantiv who has looking for something international and well experienced in making acquisitions. this is perfectly placed and sterling is way cheaper than it was. >> yes, it is a great time to be doing business in the u.k.

11:47 am
shows they are capable of doing something they have never shown they were capable of before which is firing and intercontinental listing missile capable of hitting u.s. territory, alaska or hawaii. they are not at the ability of being able to hit the continental united states. this is a significant step and likely to dominate this meeting. rightly so, because president trump will be meeting with key players, the chinese president and he sees china as the main conduit to exert pressure on north korea. that is likely to be his focus. vonnie: he could not help needle china in a tweet about trade. angela merkel is also meeting with xi jinping, should there be a trilevel agreement between germany and nato countries, china, and the u.s.? >> the question is how much pressure those countries can exert on china.
11:48 am
the issue for decades has been that china is not willing to totally strangle the north korean economy because it fears the repercussions and fears if korean unifies there is a potential u.s. ally on its border with u.s. troops stationed there. that is a concern. if the u.s. does marshall support from other countries such as germany, that could be one way to exert the pressure on china. you have the trump tweets suggesting that the u.s. could go back and pressure china and other ways that he suggested were not going to be so important. for example, on trade or currency manipulation. these things are coming to the table and hamburg and it will be an exciting couple of days. mark: the excitement will culminate on friday. to be a fly on the wall of that vladimir putin-donald trump meeting. says that no formal
