seeing fiscal year operating income at ¥520 billion which is actually higher than the initial guidance of 500 billion in the stockman on the pressure throughout 2021 Okay you said what's your favorite game then You know what I like racing simulations Anything that puts me in a car and gets me up to speed I'm on board with that I learned something new about you this morning excellent Okay let's go on to our top stories then shall we Stick with earnings Credit Suisse posted lower profit in the third quarter and signaled that it expects a net loss in the last three months of the year So the Swiss

and advisory and lower provisions This is important for bad loans The one source a fixed income trading performance that was worse than peers Okay and turning to the fed once more so as we expected the Central Bank will begin trimming its asset purchases by $15 billion this month Policymakers also voiced more concern about inflation at their meeting so Cher Jay Powell warned that supply chain imbalances have meant sizable price increases in some U.S. sectors Supply constraints have been larger and longer lasting than anticipated Nonetheless it remains the case that the drivers of higher inflation have been predominantly connected to the dislocations caused by the pandemic Specifically the effects on supply and demand from the shutdown the uneven reopening and the ongoing effects of the virus itself Well the fed held the benchmark interest rate target near zero and Powell did his best to dealing tapering from the outlook for rates lift off Our decision today to begin our tapering our asset purchases does not imply any direct signal regarding our interest rate policy We continue to articulate a different and more stringent test for the economic conditions that would need to be met before raising the federal funds rate While Powell also said that maximum employment may be reached next year in America And after the fact delivered its latest interest rate decision Guggenheim CIO Scott minor joined Bloomberg surveillance He said the Central Bank is setting itself up for a policy error There is no way that we have engaged in the scale of asset purchases in the pandemic where there is going to be a policy which ultimately is going to be perfect and not cause some sort of interruption to asset prices or something else that would be destabilizing As the Guggenheim CIO Scott minor speaking to Bloomberg Okay well let's get more market reaction Then to the fed decision bring in our markets live editor Heather Burke Heather good morning markets look a lot calmer after that fed announcement on tapering But what are the risks ahead Good morning There's definitely the biggest risk is that the global bull market is still impatient And our worried that central bankers might be too complacent about inflation being out of control So that is going to be a big risk The market is currently pricing June 2022 as a live meeting for a quarter point fed rate hike But the fear is that if inflation is not so transitory that they could have to move that forward along with a lot of other G ten central banks And then here in the UK central bankers are singing a different tune the Bank of England could become the world's first major Central Bank to high grade since the pandemic when it meets today But expectations are split aren't they Yes So markets are positioned for a 15 basis point increase and we've seen that kind of with the big sell off and build so we've seen in the last couple of weeks economists are split for a decision So what happens is a lot is going to depend on for guilt on eco forecast and what that says on a future rate hike path But one of the problems is is that some on the BE might want to wait for the latest jobs data and see how that the impact of the furlough program But that data is not going to be available to later in the month Okay Yes exactly So that's a big question isn't it about what the furlough scheme did to employment Thanks so much Heather for joining us Heather Burke for a show market commentary and analysis Check out markets live On your Bloomberg terminal In Europe the ECB president Christine Lagarde renewed her pushback against market bets for an interest rate increase in 2022 In our forward guidance on interest rates we have clearly articulated the three conditions that need to be satisfied before rates
