4:34 am
much.ne: thank you so a year is a long time. much. a year is a long time. the ecb gives a policy decision today against a very different backdrop. policymakers are faced with an economic expansion losing its luster amid concerns including u.s. concerns, brexit and italy's standoff. joining us now from brussels is and kenctor of bruegel dukes. thank you both for joining us or sticking around. how much do you worry about the standoff between brussels and rome? i am worried by the stance of the italian government.
4:35 am
it is taking a directly confrontational stance against brussels, against the commonly agreed rules of the monetary union. if one ultimately, member doesn't stick to the rules, the collective is in danger. francine: do you agree with that? it has also been in the surplus for so many years that they can try to stimulate the economy. >> i think there is a middle part where clubs have rules. i'm not sure what you do when i club has a role which has no force the hind it. -- behind it. i think a tight fiscal stance from italy now would be economic suicide. i'm not sure that is at anybody wants. there is room for the italian
4:36 am
government to come up with a long-term plan that aims to get things back on track. some plan that is realistic in the longer run. they are reaching for a fight and i think that is the dangerous thing. am: i tend to agree, but i think the roman politicians do exactly the opposite. there is no evidence whatsoever that they have a long-term plan, that they want to put the additional money they want to use to productive use. they don't reform the economy, they don't put up the money for additional investment. i think ultimately, what is at the rules arethat being questions, but fundamentally telling everyone that we don't care about what you are saying, we just do what we want, and what we want is not even going to help our long-term goals prospects, and therefore i
4:37 am
think everybody is nervous. to quote david landau, he says the physical efforts of italy have gone beyond anybody else. do you not need to give politicians a chance? if brussels is always seen as, come up with a different plan, rade it will radicalize the country. kit: i think that is not correct. it exceeds the fiscal efforts of every other country. avoided a financial crisis because they did much more. thatnk you are right ultimately, there is a risk that this will escalate. the question is how do you deal with this politically?
4:38 am
i think politically, if you just ignore them up the romans do, the italians do what they want, a think you run into problems also because the italians will say, you just need to confront brussels and then they given. ultimately, you have to step in with monetary support and so on. rules, andist on the you also risk confrontation. i don't see any sort of easy way out here. i think the commission is trying to stick to the rules on the one hand, but then have my sling was around it. i think it is not going to be enough and ultimately we have a standoff. this is a sovereign country that has subscribed to this set of rules. is that: the concern
4:39 am
you radicalize the country because it can be easily spun as brussels telling it what to do. the solutions are of the kind saying, europe needs a plan for growth and long-term debt reduction across europe. the rules need changing. i agree in the sense that just standing up and saying i want to fight, can we have a quickly and out of the way and then decide we are friends again? here we are with the european central bank set to say, we are on track to stop bond buying by the end of the year. welcome to the next bond market research note from 50 investment banks. francine: thank you most. up next, we will talk a little bit about brexit. in the meantime, we did see an

francine: welcome to our brexit show, live from our london headquarters here in london. i'm francine lacqua. here is desley humphrey. desley: the u.k. environmental secretary unveiled a fishery bill today to take back control of u.k. waters after it leaves the eu michael gross says it will allow britain to decide who fishes and its waters after brexit and on what terms. the law would deliver one of the key planks of the leading campaign and the 2016 referendum. citigroup plans to relocate some of its roles due to brexit. the lender is moving some members of its southern european private banking chain to madrid from london. the choice reflects the fact that many of the executives are famished.
4:44 am
there are signs that brexit is slowing. a labor shortage in eastern europe. the group says since the 2016 referendum, there has been a steady decline in arrivals to britain from the eu's former communist block. even fewer will choose the u.k. over brexit -- after brexit. that is her brexit bulletin. back to you. theresa may survived a showdown with conservative lawmakers yesterday evening. members of her party largely decided to express loyalty, rather than venting private frustrations over her approach to brexit. the prime minister told lawmakers to hold earners as she pursues a deal. can see actually keep her party on side throughout the remaining negotiations? still with us is kit and g
4:45 am
untram? does this hinder her negotiation power in brussels? brussels hasink gotten used to two years of political turmoil in the u.k. the u.k. mostly talking to itself about what kind of brexit it wants, i think the dynamics have changed a little bit and that at least there is a clear and coherent u.k. position. that has so far been rejected by european negotiators. i am still hopeful that at some stage, there will be some sort of a deal. i think ultimately, the u.k. will still have to give in on some of the last remaining red lines because the eu 27
4:46 am
countries continue to be extremely united, than the balance of power is clearly on the side of the eu. francine: what do you see moving next? is it parliament voting on the kind of deal, what is it? kit: the big day is a vote on the deal. off on something, theresa may will accept it. i think it is clear from yesterday that there is a very l of minorities that want to change leadership, but they cannot get it done. i'm not sure there is any deal that could pass through the british parliament at this point in time. if you break down the people who would vote with the conservative party, the labour party, there may be nothing that can get through this parliament at the moment. francine: than we're looking at a constitutional crisis.
4:47 am
is nothing gets past parliament, you looking at a constitutional crisis in the cape in the next four months. -- u.k. in the next four months. guntram: i think it needs to be clear, that means brexit without any deal. there is no option then to go back to the negotiating table or whatever and find a new deal. there is just no time for that. it is basically that or nothing. if it is nothing, i think we are not just talking about constitutional crisis in the u.k., i don't know how the politics will devolve, but we are certainly talking of some very strange and disruptions. border,s at the aviation will have problems, and politically it would be a really
4:48 am
dramatic for the continent because one of the main members be in openill conflict with the rest of the european union. i think that is a very bad scenario. ultimately, if a deal is on the table, people will say, perhaps that is what we have to look for -- vote for. francine: do you believe in this kind of days to scenario? possible.nk it is i think so much is still up in the air. i think the main point would be that the chances of a deal getting to a vote are high. i think what happens on the vote is very unclear, even now given how polarized opinion is. also think if the vote is in january, that period between january and the end of march, all sorts of things will change. you could put higher odds than are currently priced in by a lot of people that the u.k. doesn't leave anything at the end of
4:49 am
march because everyone besides it is in the interest of the european economy on u.k. to push things further. in terms of where we leave with the pound, i think that event and the monstrous uncertainty around it after a deal gets to parliament or around that time, that is going to be the big market focus. francine: thank you both for joining us. up next, the saudi crown prince thomases justice as he addresses the journalist scandal for the first time. this is bloomberg. ♪

4:54 am
diplomatic breach with turkey how does this developing story and response from europe and the u.s. affect markets? on the politics aside, how should europe currently deal with saudi arabia? guntram: i think it's clear that we are all agreeing that this murder is absolutely outrageous. think this feeling is very widely shared throughout europe. germany has already announced, angela merkel has announced that she wants to stop weapons exports to saudi arabia, which is easy for her to say because the numbers are not very big for germany, i think something like 400 million per year. now, the french president has cautious, and didn't really know how to respond to the move.
4:55 am
france is also exporting much more. france is the only country that actually has a trade deficit. it kind of depends on exports. france is taking a more cautious line, but i think in germany, it is extremely popular, what she has said because many people in germany have a very pacifist attitude and are outraged by the murder. if the u.s. imposes sanctions through congress, and that is a massive tbc, would europe follow? guntram: i don't know. i think it is a long way until the u.s. would really do this. there are masses stakes in the weapon industry behind it. i think if anything, trump has been very proud about
4:56 am
selling so many weapons to saudi arabia. europe might, if they were to do it, might follow. francine: what does it mean for markets? time, there longest has been a temptation to make a lot of noise, but do very little when something happens in parts of the world that we depend on for oil. thickt were to change, a markets would be scared of higher oil prices or scared we would get another leg to the global trade war. francine: thank you so much. coming up, tom keene joins me out of new york. this is bloomberg. ♪

ugliness of february. where we are right now is this gap to a correction, which is about 1.7%, 1.8% down further. we are not even to an official correction yet. francine: this is what i am looking at. the mixed feature for european equities. we are trying to figure out what the underlying cause of it is. s&p futures liking positive. joining us now is daniel morris, senior investment strategist and jordan rochester. what is the underlying cause of this decline? is there something ugly we haven't pinpointed? >> think the primary trigger, which is the u.s. interest rates. it is really tech that has led us on the way down.

if you look at the contribution, it is primarily tech. i think you have fantastic gains until the start of this at the beginning of october. perhaps a bit too much. you had a couple of concerns about rates around china and week pmi's in europe. it adds to the negative sentiment. francine: will it continue? daniel: if we step back and look at fundamental growth outlook, it really hasn't changed. u.s.,tes for gdp in the we have to see about europe.is still a positive growth environment .we are not warned about inflation celebration . jordan rochester, is me wisdom on yen. if we were correlated across asset, where would it be? -- should beuls much stronger. we had our risk off moment in q2.

jordan: we can, we just a to be strong about it. what does well in late cycle is value stocks. what does poorly is growth stocks. tech has been a big part of that. this is a pain trade when things are good and everybody is talking about higher growth, that is a trade that does not do well. when it is late cycle, you go along value and short growth. fancyne: the italian coffee place is starbucks. let me show you our chart of the day. this is looking at how much market value has been lost and back to 2013.d when can you call the end of the bull market? daniel: weather late cycle or close to the end, the trigger that will put us in a bear market is the u.s. recession.
5:08 am
we are not even in correction territory yet. fundamentals are good. when we are starting to see signs of a u.s. slowdown, than the gain is completely different . at this point, we think that is premature. francine: volatility in currencies, we have kind of gotten used to. do you think is equity markets start seeing this route, currencies will stabilize? high, dollar-yen falls to pretty much nothing. fx has had its risk off move. one has these hedges in place already. for it to get worse, i think we need a u.s. recession. at least another year before that becomes a realistic story. tom: this is the dow. that is what we watch. dan, it is an elegant chart.

by all accounts, the government seems to be keeping things relatively stable. we had numbers before i came on the banks areat at a high since 2016. it does indicate there is some kind of pressure there. so far, all of the focus has been in the equity market. the government will be happy they are managing that kind of relatively modest, gradual slow decline there doesn't you to spook markets yet. as we did get closer to the level, and if we do go over seven level, that will be a key psychological barrier and a test of sentiment toward both the yuan and china. of theat is the action chinese government in beijing and the communist party to support the chinese economy? enda: it looks like it is about stability rather than stimulus right now. we have had a string of measures
5:15 am
and rhetoric in recent days. we have had promises of personal tax cuts. some of the highest economic officials come out and make statements such as unwavering support for the private sector. they are trying to make financing for the private sector companies cheaper and easier to get. they are taking these steps to shore up confidence to stabilize the wider markets, rather than -- resorting to the bigger stimulus we have seen in previous down terms. the key to remember is that the trade war is only starting in earnest in china. the impact of the tariffs is expected to be felt over the coming months. everybody is watching to see if china will unleash more stimulus are minutes with the measures they are taken so far. francine: the linkage between markets and real economy in china is different to the u.s. and other parts of the world.

is it more likely that if the market falls significantly, it has an impact on the real economy? right.hat is entirely there is a disconnect with what happened in the real economy. share ownership is only a fraction. it does have an impact on sentiment. it does impact the corporate confidence. the bigger picture is that the economy is slowing because of deleveraging. we have the trade were happening. there is downward pressure on the one. that -- yuan. that is expected to continue over the coming months. there is no doubt that all of these factors together point to something of a starker mood towards china's economy. tom: thank you so much. greatly appreciated. renminbi up to 6.95. oh weaker chinese yuan. --ugely emotional

investigating another suspicious package. the package was sent to the home of robert de niro, a prominent critic of president trump. this comes a day after bombs were sent to the former presidents obama, clinton, and to cnn. there is a report chinese spies are listening when trump calls his friends on his iphone. u.s. intelligence reports that spies are getting vital insight on how to affect administration policy. china calls the report fake news. wto.eform agenda for the it is not clear how far the talks will go. the u.s. and china were excluded. it was president trump's economic data with beijing and his criticism of the wto that led to the meeting. the federal reserve is warning banks about the risk from the leveraged loan market.

a closer looking at whether wall street banks are chasing deals without adequately protecting themselves. morgan stanley and goldman sachs have taken part in deals that have exceeded what the fed considers appropriate. global news 24 hours a day on air and on tictoc on twitter powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. this is bloomberg. thank you so much. an extraordinary headline right now. why don't you pick it up, on saudi arabia and turkey. francine: it is extraordinary. the jamaland that khashoggi killing was premeditated. , at the time of when we interviewed the crown prince of saudi arabia, he said he had left the consulate and that he did not know his whereabouts. it is amazing how the last two weeks you have seen a complete
6:32 am
reversal and that with this committee saying the jamal khashoggi killing has been prepped meditated -- been premeditated. bloomberg, the saudi prosecutor continues interrogation of suspects. let us move back to the markets and the single best chart with gary shilling, an important chart about where we are and the sum of all our fiscal fears. thank you michael mckee for this chart. low interest rates in the rising interest rate burden we are beginning to see. many people watching remember 9% cds, double-digit annuities. the fear is higher interest rates. should we fear higher interest rates because of our debt irresponsibility? >> we should if they get near
6:33 am
double digits, but i would suggest that is highly unlikely, unless you are talking about the economy virtually collapsing. if you are talking about confidence fading to the point with today's deflationary pressures in the world, globalization, when you are talking about treasury average cost getting back to double digits, you're talking about a complete loss of faith in the treasury and you better get your ak-47s and gold bars and get into a cave. the thatave a cave for we have fully stocked. --hink this superior type the stereotype is gary shilling does not own stocks. you have owned equities throughout your newsletter. what equities do you own today? >> health care and defense are
6:34 am
two areas that we do own. they are small positions with what has been going on fortunately. i don't think you always want to have your eggs in one basket, but it has been a defensive approach. sum as i said earlier, the of all the fears of people out there, you have pushed against that for years. why should we celebrate where the american economy is right now? >> you should celebrate, but always worth if this is a peak. the celebration is always the greatest and confidence is always greatest at the peak. it does not mean we are at the peak. it can get more extended. the bank of england has already made comments on the fed. is a lot ofre speculation out there and things going on when you are close to yield curve inversion.
6:35 am
consumer confidence is at a high, but that is normally at a peak. higher, butlower or if this turned out to be a peak within the next year, it would not surprise me at all. francine: gary, do you think it is a peak? what are the chances of a worldwide slow down that could lead to a recession in one region? probablyd say they are in the 50-50 range. you look at the signs, the selloff in the stock market, the fed tightening, housing is highly leveraged, inverted yield curve, problems with the emerging markets, all these things say we are at a point where you no longer have the back and the fed
6:36 am
and other central banks flooding the market with money. the ecb is finally ending their quantitative easing, moving towards tightening. all these things suggest you are close to a peak. nobody rings a bell and says you are at it now and it is time to move away. as i say, i think there are enough things there that there is a good chance within the next year we will see a recession. a lot of these things are never clear except in retrospect. it is only after the fact you find out you were at the peak. francine: gary, this is the most important question. if there is a recession, 10 central banks deal with it? >> they can certainly try. one of the reasons the fed is trying to get interest rates up his so they will have something to cut if we do get a recession. they don't want to go with negative rates. do? did negative rates
6:37 am
they encourage people to save more because they figure i'm not getting any return so i should save for retirement and so on. if it does leave the central banks without a lot of ammunition, it doesn't mean they can't go back to quantitative easing, but i think they certainly aren't limited, much more limited than they were earlier. tom: very good. francine, further stories on these bombings and the discovery of pipe bombs, not bombings. from the new york police department in the area of tribeca to the south and west of manhattan, above wall street, and over towards the hudson river as well. is a more serious morning for the new york police department. francine: it is. people say we could see more packages.

6:41 am
, darkeningramucci the door of 1600 pennsylvania. what is important is the president group up on third base, rounding to home, and scaramucci groep somewhere rocketing out of first base. scaramucci on the blue-collar president. you have to be kidding me? this guy is so far from a blue-collar president. why is he a blue-collar president? >> it is more about the people i grew up with an less about the president of the united states. you are thinking of the golden toilet seat and his apartment on fifth avenue looks like louis the 14th smoked crystal meth. what i'm thinking about are the kids i grew up with and my
6:42 am
cousins out on or survey that love the president. i did a lot of research on him and his father and try to explain the neighborhood i grew the people who didn't go to college who are working hourly jobs love the president. you in the white house right now because his tax bill has failed. the fed is the public, including your blue-collar audience figuring out the plutocracy. what does he need to do as an encore? >> there are three things that did not happen. he didn't get the repatriation of capital from outside the united states. , the numbers for those families i am discussing, you're talking to $1000 to $3000. enougheaningful, but not
6:43 am
to get started at those levels. is u.s. thing corporations are still in a defensive position because they are worried about a recession. francine: go ahead, gary. >> i think the numbers are pretty clear. lower 50% of taxpayers only pay 5% of income taxes. if you're going to cut income taxes and you have to cut them on the top. want to go to a negative income tax, you can't do much for these people on the lower end. >> you have the earned income tax credit. >> you are basically writing a check. >> here is the bottom line. that group of people for what ever reason has rejected the establishment. the president saw that. he did something unique in political history. he hijacked the republican
6:44 am
party. he got the nomination, then stole the base of the democratic party and moved it over to his ledger. i described why he was capable of doing that, given his personality and what i saw on the campaign trail. i want to do a little fact checking. scaramucci,thony you know what our managing director want to know is was right? could he shoot someone on fifth avenue and still get away with it? >> pretty close. i think that is clear now. if you go from june 2015 to today, he has ardent support. vacuum whereyour politicians were focused on the very wealthy and the very poor. what they were not focused on is that lower middle income area or
6:45 am
the middle class, so what i am writing about in the book, and if you're a democrat you should read the book because you should understand how donald trump hijacked your base, but yes, he has a group of ardent supporters and they don't care. i was there for the access hollywood moment. many of us thought that was going to be a bad moment in terms of not being able to win. that happened 30 days before the election. lo and behold, he is the 45th president. ,e has a lot of teflon in him and a lot of likability for this people, and i described why in the book. forcine: what would it take the president to lose support from the gop or his base? >> three things would have to happen. number one, something cataclysmic related to the model report. some kind of steep
6:46 am
recession going into 2020. 1880 two today, it is hard to dislodge a sitting president with the rising economy. tom: you were newsday paper boy. i did the same thing in rochester. my mother ran it like a fortune 500 company. the democrats in the neighborhoods where you delivered are screaming for a different democratic party. will the president be a two-term president if the democrats don't move away from the clinton progressivism to form some kind of new democratic party? >> the democrats need a right of center economic person and the socially liberal person to run, but unfortunately, they have a little trump derangement. if you think about what happened to senator warren, he shoots at her and gets inside her melon and she runs out and gets a dna test.
6:47 am
that will not help the democrats. gary is laughing because trump has twitter and he vaporizes everybody. tom: the charm of anthony scaramucci is everybody knows you grow up in a blue-collar environment on long island, and as you say, the president hijacked that ethos. how do democrats get it back? >> they need a different candidate. they don't have the right candidates. you name the candidates. they have 10 bowling pins of candidates, and the president is an orange bowling ball and will bullish strike. tom: will he be too old to run for a second term? >> he looks pretty tireless to me. i've never seen anybody with that level of energy. you saw him the last four nights. he's the only human being i know that can eat anything he wants
6:48 am
and it has no effect on itself -- on his health. francine: if there is any doubt about the fed's independence, what does that mean for treasuries and the dollar? >> the fed is clearly independent. there when we were having the discussion about jerome powell. it was on a wednesday. i was only there for one wednesday, so i do remember it. i like the direction the fed is taking. if the economy starts weakening, in' when areas of the economy will start slowing down, the fed will say we moved to data dependency and you will see them slow down the rates. it is not clear they will get five rate moves in the next 15 months, because things are starting to slow down and people are starting to get defensive. it is being reflected in the market right now. tom: every administration, it is exhausting.
6:49 am
i know you are exhausted by the third or fourth day. >> it was great. i was doing great. tom: every one else was exhausted. it will be a changing of the guard. what do you imagine the president's new people will be within the administration? >> the personnel? tom: yes. >> the president made the decision to go with washington swap monsters. swamp if youin the have a guy pouring sewage into the swamp. the president will switch dynamics and hire some people that may like him and one to help him and create the effective guardrails for the president. the best relationship with president trump is when you are polite and respectful, but telling him what you really thing. is not loyalty.
6:50 am
it is selfishness and a form of self survival. he needs more people to tell him the truth. tom: which caravan did the scaramuccis come in on? >> a boat out of naples, ellis island. my father went to a coal mining town in northeastern pennsylvania. tom: how do you respond to the caravan debate? it is middle easterners and terrorists according to the washington post. did they say that about the caravan? >> if there are women and children in the caravan, which they're obviously are, i want everybody to stop and think about that for a second. there is a mom out there traveling thousands or hundreds of miles to get to the u.s. border, and if you think that is funded by george soros, that mom is making that decision with her children, i think that is a far-fetched thing. we have to dialback some of the rhetoric and get people to
6:51 am
relax. you are not having moms with traveling hundreds of miles to get the u.s. border because george soros is paying them. that is a bunch of malarkey. we know that. francine: you call the president a liar yesterday. >> can i correct the record? francine: do you think he knows what he is doing? correct the record. >> do i think he knows what he is doing? he absolutely knows what he is doing. don't underestimate the president. what i said to the reporter, he , yes, the to push me president is speaking this truth. but doing it intentionally to incite certain people, which would include left-leaning journalists and most left-leaning politicians. they come out like a hall monitor in high school and say
6:52 am
the president is lying, and his base is basically laughing at them. if someone is taking your lunch money in the cafeteria, if you call the whole monitor, it will not help you. you have to defeat the person at the table with your peer group. that was the point i was making yesterday. cnn, butose guys at they were trying to pin me, saying scaramucci calls trump a liar. so what should, the strategy be from democrats in the midterms if you were to advise them? it is a simple strategy. it is a simple strategy. you have to switch what you are doing and stop talking about gender bathrooms and saving dolphins, go back in the neighborhoods and tell those people you will redesign a product to save them, increase their income, and give their
6:53 am
children and aspirational opportunity in america. i lived in and aspirational working family. later, the democrats have to stop the political correctness and micro aggressions and go back and tell those people that were in their base for 60 or 70 years that we are with you, but they are not capable of doing that. that is why he will continue to steamroll. francine: thank you so much for coming on. now we need to change gears and talk tesla after some negative breast in the past couple of months. prophet blowout means they are back on track. joining us for the latest is our guest. has tesla really turned a corner? a great quarter, no doubt about that.
6:54 am
key question is do they need to raise capital? the answer is potentially not. there still remains a lot of questions with respect to demand. one of the key things we are monitoring is demand. in norway, the jack were has outsold tesla and its first full month of being available by over once those cars get to the united states in 2019, what happens to tesla's ability? >> vertical research is known for a acute numbercrunching. tom: does tesla have a cash conversion cycle? do you have transparency as to what they do with their cash? >> we don't. there are some key questions and oddities we need to get answered. their depreciation and amortization was up 5%, despite
6:55 am
they advertise their costs on a per unit basis. storesve opened a ton of , supercharger stations, service centers, so their answers we need that we did not get yesterday. tom: what answers were you get as you wait for the second quarter? >> at the beginning of november and we will get production and sales for october. that is important. it is important also how much backlog they burn through. data suggest they burn through ,heir rearwheel drive backlog and 70% through their long rage drive backlog. we think they pulled some key levers to put a lot of things in q3. we think for numbers are what matters. tom: thank you very much. the vertical group, some great research on industrial america, cautious on tesla.
6:56 am
we need to tell you where the markets are. really better. up 22, dow futures up 180 points. we see some risk on. i don't want to oversell it, but some risk on field across bonds and the foreign exchange complex as well. much more to talk about. ubs saying trview, humbs up on a well-run bank. do stay with us. worldwide, this is bloomberg. ♪
