There's a line that I remember from the former East Sea presidente Mario Draghi when he turned around and said rights have to be low now to be higher in the future. It was 2014. They just went negative. They're still there. And that's the outlook for these financials. Were we generate an economic recovery in the continent that actually leads the higher interest rates.

You and I've been saying credit really resilient in the face of attack route in the previous three weeks this week, we had a change later. I think we've had about 40 basis points of spread, widening on high yield. Just some cracks Emerging. Yeah, we've seen some really big outflows from junk bond funds, in particular, the biggest Ohio bonding TF saw $3 billion withdrawn, which is the most Since the February turmoil, raising a question on John about what this signals ahead is it's just sort of the froth getting taken off the top. Or does this indicate that there has been a material shift in the economic outlook based on the fact that we don't have another foot of fiscal support in the offing, and we are getting a resurgence in virus cases, John What are you getting in the Treasury market a bit with a move lower of just a single basis point on a 10 year year. Isn't that a story? Lisa is not much of one in the sulfur in debt market right now.

New York Fed President William speaking, including to a group of younger people in Rochester, about the prospects for them entering the labor market, John at this incredibly tenuous time. This to me is one of the most untold stories of this entire recession, which is if you're a college graduate. If you're graduating from high school, what is your prospects, given the fact that entry level jobs? Have largely been eradicated from a lot of the sectors that were traditional hirers of these new graduates. Couldn't agree more. We'll catch up the economics team at Goldman a little bit later in the next couple of hours on this program, Let's get straight to the price action.

He's a wanna wait handle, which is really profound after the one of 7171 or seven That we've seen John. I do want to point out Turkey got their act together and stunned experts with a substantial interest rate increase yesterday. So Turkish Lira finally stronger. Let's get a conversation started with everyone's Silverman, Obviously capital Markets Equity derivatives strategist joins us right now, Amy, Fantastic Catch up with you. This market not seem concerned about October or November. Very preoccupied with December Why, Amy? Hey, guys. Good morning. Yeah, I mean, December seems to be the focus. You know, Part of it is there is this December 14th deadline when the state electors are supposed to submit their ballots, And obviously the conversation has gone on for quite a while that we're goingto have a contested election election where logistics of mechanics. Matter a lot. You know, one new once I would point to is, this is very true for S and P and fix which has been pricing Ah, higher for longer elevated voluntarily. This is not true in NASDAQ, and it's not true. And Russell. The options term structure that we look at is actually lower, the somber than in November. It's flipped in S and P in Vicks. And so I I actually think that's pretty interesting. Because the market has been so so much driven by this, you know, Tech versus value trade that that is not being reflected in those embassies. Amy what portion of this pull back? His correction is simply due to abet on weaker economic growth. Does that play in big or is it just another small factor? You know, I think that definitely, you know, we sort of saw the market react to some of the data that came out as well as house comments If I put out a third layer to that There have obviously been substantial option dynamics at play ever since August even earlier, you know, referring to the Softbank trades as well as the retail option by So you know, the third factor that I see in play is also that there is this auction sign attic. We refer to as gamma where you know it slices both ways. We saw that exacerbate the move off. And we are seeing an exacerbate the move down in, you know, look in mainly tech names. But as goes text, as goes the market because of the heavy waiting that it has had in the market. In recent times. You talk about Tech and you talk about how 2020 volatilities has largely been focused on what you call the Fang. A man stocks. I call them the fan of Mag Stocks. Pick your poison. How much risk is there, too big tech?.

"Let's begin this morning with thought leader Thursday David Phalaris here senior vice president of capital markets at associated bank David good morning welcome to the opening bell thanks Steve thank you for having me a little bit of things have changed heroes in the brexit conversation since the last time you were here it looks like there might be an extension what's the headline for brexit well it looks like it's the never ending story really we have an extension to January thirty first we have an election coming up in the U. K. which looks very likely it's theoretically if it isn't in stone yet because it has to go to the house of lords of which will go later this week but it's pretty definite that will have an election December twelfth and does the hopefully this will come out with some kind of definitive answer however I think the odds are probably slim that will get anything definitive then we may have a repeat of what we have right now yeah I I remember Boris Johnson prime minister Johnson saying we are leaving October thirty first no matter what do or die yeah right do or die I'd rather be dead in a ditch right of I guess he hasn't found the ditch and I guess the word not not going to do he is you know kind of blaming parliament because in in reality did bring a deal the lab the withdrawal withdrawal agreement bill that was passed to the second stage which is really just something that allows parliament start looking at it the problem that parliament had was that the time period that there was a lot to discuss this bill was actually get day shorter than the time given to the wild animal and circus bill which covered nineteen animals in the U. K. that was given four days of parliamentary reading the web was given three and you know because of time constraints so people are very concerned thought of something of this momentous importance you don't need a little bit longer than you know how do we deal with Tigers in zoos what's the level of uncertainty of not only in the U. K. from a business standpoint but how is it impacting the rest of the world as well well I think in the European Union it's a little less so in that if you look at country clubs the Great Britain and did well the United Kingdom represents about twenty percent of trade flows of the new European Union it's people have become I think much more prepared for no deal breaks it now the last nine months for the European Union has been one where people have been preparing and they're generating kind of alternative plans certainly investments are going to be you know certainly in Ireland for example which will be probably the second most of affected country you can see that those I'm just back from there you can see that there is kind of a general kind of wait and see certain things are slowing a little bit northern Ireland's has seen complete nearly complete stop and overseas investment of because we the people don't know what's going on they've been a couple of large industry sort of actually closed short plus for example of closest last week which the big boss manufacture of in Europe so I think for them you know we're sync issues the car companies for example in Britain both Nissan and Toyota have signaled that they're waiting and seeing before they make any big investments and which is a signal that maybe they're gonna make this investment if brakes it goes the wrong way so I think that's pretty significant so you know when you look at certainly io growth of like GDP is kind of running in this kind of one point three one point five percent you know it's people are kind of just it's motoring along with a very low pace and certainly at a lesser pay some probably would be normally no they're also you know questions about the turf wars between the potential to in the US the U. and that kind of stuff as well floating around so this is more than just breaks up yeah I mean U. S. GDP came in at one point nine percent sort of too far away from the U. K. at all no and that's down you know when you think about like first quarter GDP was look closer three so you know we're seeing kind of I which may be part of the trade war as well you know turf wars generally nobody wins and we're saying I did we could six six we've seen a consistent decline in GDP this year for the last three consumer confidence numbers that came out each one was lower than the next I think you know there is a certain amount of apprehension globally by consumers you know when we look at stock market here it's you know all the main and say it's a done really well but they have with the exception the S. and P. make em up high earlier this week most of the insights haven't really changed much since July and I think there is this kind of general global kind of slowed sing we're on this morning with David Fowler is as VP of capital markets at associated bank our conversation focusing on world markets in

"Ed curry is here, certified mortgage planner construction loan specialists at associated Bank. Ed, good morning. Welcome to the opening bell. Good morning. Thanks for having me. And welcome to our thought leaders chair. I want to start this morning by letting people kind of get to know you a little bit. Tell us a little bit about yourself. I'm residential mortgage lender. I've been at associated Bank for little over ten years in the business over twenty five. In fact, it started things were much different nineteen Ninety-four OJ was riding around and Broncos and no doc loans were considered safe loans. So, but yeah, since then of started in the broker world and round two thousand eight when financial crisis hit wanted to partner with a direct lender. And that's where I've been ever since with associated give us a sense of what you do every day. It's really chatting with clients and speaking with them on things that they want to do with their home. Whether it's purchase refinance construction rehab, maybe a brand new build so most of my day. Hopefully, most my day is chatting with clients and working on solutions form. However is it tends to happen. You tend to get involved with the process, and and managing the process and making sure ultimately the client has. Kind of as easy as processes possible. Well, we call you a thought leader. But it sounds like you're an expert in his field as well. Most days I. What taking a sort of a big picture of this industry right now. What would you if you had to give it a state of the industry report? What would you say about it in terms of the mortgage industry? You know, it's word interesting place. I always think about the average age of alone officer. Yeah. The average age of alone office are various stats is in the mid fifties. If you can believe that so the were really looking for a lot more younger people to get into business. There's a lot of older guys at just been around. And and when you talk about, you know, technology moving forward, I think it'll be really helpful for some younger people to get involved. But but overall, I think be interesting solid. Cfpb made some splashes initially some of the compliance and right with Tori changes as with most things industry's gotten used to those changes. So for the most part, it's it's real good opportunity for clients to jump in and get a good mortgage at a good rate, and and not be as hassle. You mentioned the two thousand eight crisis. Would you think that this industry is safer today than it is than? It was in two thousand eight they tell us it is. Yeah, I I would think so I think, you know, the biggest issue that we had previously was banks taking your brokers taking a lot of risks that they weren't responsible for there's a lot more regulatory requirements involved for banks, for example, I look at associated Bank which were portfolio lender. And you know, it's our money sitting on our balance sheet. It's our risk. But at the same point regulators are going to really dictate what kind of risk that we can take. So so there's a lot more oversights. And ultimately, I think that'd be industry slot. More sound when you have conversations with clients are they still nervous about becoming a home buyer for the first time, what kinds of fears and challenges do they face? Do you talk to them about? I don't think. So I think it's second nature to people. Now, I think about back in nineteen ninety four when I started. I remember some of the first loan application. Nations. I took people, of course in everybody. All loans were face to face your now, I may need one out of four hundred people I'm working with. But it was all face to face. People would come in. They would dress up. The they'd be nervous. They'd be shaking. They handle their documents. It'd be nervous if they're gonna get alone. And and now it, you know, start off with a phone call and maybe at the end of a twenty minute phone. Call people are sending over every personal financial piece of information in their life to to get alone. So no, I don't think people are as nervous anymore. There's a lot more information for people to to feel comfortable with the process at hang on. We're going to continue our conversation this morning. Ed Curry's here in our thought leader chair this morning from associated Bank. We'll have more of our conversation coming up in just a few minutes. But if five nineteen we need to break here for traffic.

"It's a thought leader Thursday here on the opening bell. And we're happy to have Chuck Garcia in the house with us today. Chuck is an executive vice president, and he's also in charge of commercial lending at the associated Bank in our thought later today thought leaders today also in charge of treasury management there as well. And Chuck is with us here in the studio this morning, Chuck good morning. Welcome back to the opening bell grad to be here. Happy new year to you. When it talked about. Couple of things this morning technology and commercial banking. But also new headline that's out just today about whether or not credit standards are going to tighten this year. Investors have had mixed reactions to this over the last week is the banking industry and for tightening of credit this year. Honestly, I think if you were to look back probably six months ago, even you would see a little bit of a different view. Everybody knows a recession will happen someday. Now, when is it it's anybody's guess, I think there were feelings even in the early part of this year that that was looming and right on the cusp. So I think banks took a little have been taking over the last six months, even a different view on credit, and maybe tightening up covenants so on and so forth. It's also forced some companies to look at alternatives for than traditional Bank credit. So the I think that really happened even back into into eighteen it feels like to over the last couple of weeks. There's been a mood shift now that the Federal Reserve has said they're not going to move forward. With quick with rate hikes this year as well. Absolutely. Absolutely. And it depends on which side of the fence you're on. Okay. So we as a Bank that we happen to be more assets sensitive. We would love more increases because those will reprise faster than our deposits. Whereas a borrower says. Wow, okay. I'm more apt to borrow noun believing that we're going to stay stable for the foreseeable future depends on which side of the fence. You're on there. Do you think it was a smart? This smart move quite federal do. I think is I recall our last conversation in late eighteen you know, they were planning. I think the idea was four increases. I said, you know, I I'd see to probably I think it's a wise move. I think I think the way the job market is the the international uncertainty. I think Brexit is a big factor in a lot of things. So there are a lot of multiples that go into this factors that that I think it is a wise decision to slow a bit. We recently at the state of the union address in we've kind of engaging. How CEOs are feeling now about the economy and. Everybody seems still positive moving forward. You hearing anything different again. I think it's a little more cautious. But overall positive yes. Before we've had conversations on the on the thought leader program about how banks like associated want to get better at technology, and you've talked about how that would be acquiring somebody who's doing technology. But there's a report now that women especially technologists are finding jobs in commercial banking for this very reason. I think that's such a great great lead in. It's it's evident everywhere in in our organization, and I think across the industry when I go to trade shows now that that highlight a lot of the technology firms and banks that have technology arms and so forth. I will I will tell you where it was heavily dominated by male save ten fifteen years ago. It's fifty percent plus women. It's great to see I think it's just fantastic. So when technologists come in the do they have to necessarily have banking experience. Or is it like on the job training? It's helpful to have that. But the technology if you ask the, right? Questions of what people want to achieve? And when I when I think of our vendors that we have good relationships with they ask us what we're trying to achieve. What's the what's the end game? What's the outcome? They build the technology around that. So you don't necessarily have to have that. It's certainly is a benefit I believe, but it's not it's not an absolute after and what are some of the things that these technologies would be working on well lending platforms. CRM commercial relationship management types of things. You know, Salesforce is big in the in the banking business. But there are alternatives there. I think of some of the things we're looking at of implementing products implementing lending workflow management things like that are very significant to us, and I think really our competitors. Chuck hang on. We're gonna continue with Chuck Garcia this morning from associated Bank. Chuck is in our thought leader this morning. He's the vice president director of commercial deposits and treasury management associated Bank. And we'll continue in just a moment.

We begin this morning with thought leader Thursday here on the opening bell. Chuck Garcia is the executive vice president and director of commercial deposits and treasury management at associated Bank, and Chuck is back with us this morning in the thought leader chair Chuck good morning. Welcome back to the opening bell. Good morning. Nice to be here. A happy holidays to you as well. Here. We are again in the holiday season lots going on. We're gonna talk a little bit about what's happened in your world this year and other things, but let's get to some news with the fed getting ready to have its December meeting looks like another interest rate going up. How's this going to impact financial services sector? Well, it does look like it. I think there's still a tad of uncertainty. But I think what went from being one hundred percent certain is is still very high. So I think this next one is likely clearly it will have an effect really across the board commercial customers will see their rates rise from a from paying on the interest of loans similarly, consumers housing, it'd be interesting to see what happens with the mortgage industry. I think those are already somewhat built in. But clearly it's going to have a have an impact albeit relatively still historically very, very low. I think there's the mental aspect that. People say oh rates are rising. And obviously rates we pay to clients will will increase as well. Are you? What are your thoughts about whether the fed is going to continue this in twenty nineteen nine? There's been a lot of talk about this in the last couple weeks that may be December is going to be the last one for a while. I see too in the coming year. Okay. I think the uncertainty here in the US alone with the tariffs and the trade wars, you know, looming cetera. But also, there's a lot of uncertainty abroad, you have France. Now, obviously, the Brexit situation. There's a lot of uncertainty abroad, and we're all intertwined any longer. And and so I think that's going to have an impact on their desire to to be probably as aggressive as they might have been they being the fed as aggressive as they might have been previously. Do you think it's actually had an impact on businesses, especially local businesses that are they is this something that's causing them to stop and pause their plans. I think it has you know, depending on the industry you're in to raw-materials are part of your production cycle, and your and your supply chain. There's absolute evidence. Having an impact is slowing some things down. I think the farm industry to you know, living where we do. That's continuing to have a drag on that as well. How does the interest rate going up or going down impact the day to day management of financials? Well, you have to really we have to do is really stay abreast of what are what our competition is doing. So for my pain perspective what we pay and interest rates to clients. You know, be they consumers or or corporates. It's certainly today has far more interest at the individual and company level than than it would have even a year ago. It was just immaterial at that point in time. Now, you know dollars are significant enough where people are paying attention and willing to to change in today's environment. If they don't feel like they're getting a proper rate or attention from their Bank. I heard some experts talking about the interest rate hikes have come so quick and fast that they haven't had. There hasn't been enough time for them to take hold and and people have become comfortable with them. Usually there is a bigger window between interest rates is there some truth to that about it still working its way through the system each one of these hikes. Well, I see both sides. I mean, the savvy investor those with large dollars they move very quickly today. If a rate increase does in fact occur they have they effectively expected to be an instantaneous change by their Bank. You know, the the normal John Q public guy like me doesn't pay. As much attention to it. But if all of a sudden, you look up and see oh my gosh. You know, I'm still backing the point one percent. That's not fair in today's environment. You know, they may they may choose to act on that. But I think I think the the savvy investor the corporate investor in the larger dollar people are absolutely much much quicker to react today. I'm interested in your opinion about the economy as it stands right now. Are there earning warning signs out there that you are hearing about or seeing or feeling? Yeah housing. I mean housing is shown some some slowdown, obviously that's a huge component of of our industry in our economy in so housing and the ripple effect that that in fact has is slowing down, you know, they're building as many apartment buildings people aren't buying single housing contrary to what I'm saying. You're the millennials are now moving to the burbs and buying houses. So I think you have kind of a reverse effect of people that are retiring moving into the rural areas, but it isn't fast enough to keep up in so housing. I think is one of the indicators I see that that could have a drag on the economy and then again as rates rise. It makes the affordability of a house that perhaps you could have afforded two years ago. Much less today. Chuck hang on with us. We're on with Chuck or see this morning executive vice president and director of commercial deposits and treasury management at associated Bank. It's our thought leader conversation. We're going.

"John Horton is here from associated Bank. We talked about mortgages and mortgage rates, John I found a story in Forbes about parents who give their kids the gift of a new home an expert in that story says might get better to actually give them a mortgage. Why is that you know, I'm not a big fan of parents giving their children homes because it really puts me out a business. But if you do have a pair like that we have seen it in it and just called a private mortgage. Everything is recorded. It's on alone. They can actually put it on their credit bureau it protects the parents that if the kids stop paying the home is still in their name. So obviously getting your attorneys and getting everything else involved getting them. A gift of home is great giving them a gift of a down payment. Some people do prefer because the kids really want to have that sense of homeownership. What you're finding is a lot of these kids. Adults wanna live close to their parents. A lot of parents live in neighborhoods that those kids. Is right now cannot afford. So that's the big push. They want the kids close. The grandkids co close kids can't afford that steep of a mortgage payment. So they work with them interest rates entirely up to the parents. So where you're seeing five percent right now, if it's more manageable for the child to pay three and a half percent fit the payment. You're good to go. So it's a little bit easier. Lending terms. What kind of how how do you collect on that credit? If you're the parent, you send somebody over to knock on the door saying there's not a lot of credit reports pulled on your kids. That's a big trust. And foreclosure would happen. It'd be horrible. If you just go to your room. Your mom and dad's sleeping in there. You know, you're kick out of the house. We talked about all the different things you could do you mentioned credit score. How big of a problem is mortgage fraud these people actually lying on their mortgage applications? You know, we always liked to trust everybody. Steve. But it, you know, it's amazing. What the internet that seems to be so popular lately, you can go on the internet now, and you can go to a site, and they will make your pay stub for you. They will give you a phone number. So in the Bank calls to verify your employment. It's going to that company that company will verify your employment, and they just made the Bank statement, it's free. Why the the the what they do is? They say they say, it's for novelty purposes, only, I think that's their way on the other way to do it. If you don't have enough trade lines on your.

Company's secretive plan to build a search engine that would comply with Chinese censorship and we begin. Front and center this morning with a check it on labor union said new research shows that, the decline in labor unions has, cut the pay for all workers across many, industries and, we thought we'd bring in Bob writer this morning he is the president Of the Chicago federation of labor Bob good morning welcome. To the opening bell Morning Steve thanks for having me Labor Day is always an important day to take stock in what the. Labor unions. Have done for our country Without labor unions, we. Wouldn't have a solid. Middle class in the country I wanted to get your thoughts on on the state of of labor these days Well it's interesting all the rhetoric that you heard. Over the years about labor and the quote unquote a decline of labor getting edge Gives. You the right on the head as people have seen the percentage of folks participating in the labor movement go down. Over, the years you also seen gross inequity in our country between what real people make and, what, people at the top, are making What I, would say to you. Though is look at what we have here, in Chicago we have strong labor movement we. Have people that you know folks see out fighting every day and you know the, the popularity of unions especially here in our state I think has never been higher so whether folks are in union or not they believe. In the necessity of labor unions and the study that I was referring to was done by the university of Illinois The professor who led the, research shows show the dirig- wages would have been three to seven percent higher, during their careers for most, workers had, US labor unions still. Been as strong as they were let's say, in the seventies the fifties or sixties or. Seventies three to seven percent that's a huge number when it comes to lost pay What's incredible to me is if you look at the tape of society we live in, we live, in a consumer base -ociety in order for people to be consumers they. Have to make they have to make more money right So if, you want to have a vibrant. Economy not just here but all across this country you know get away from this academy where everybody's living in Bowie. Credit you have to have a strong middle class you have to raise wages? And I think it's gotta be it's gotta be a society where people can actually buy the things that they make utility by, thinks that they, make but what is if you could give us a sense of what happened. Starting I guess most experts say nineteen fifty s when union Memberships started declining is there one or two things that you can point? To that that that have caused this over the years Well you know in terms of the in lemme say when we, talked about this we, have to, make sure. That we put an answer because we're talking about the national numbers of labor movement declining places like Chicago Los Angeles New. York we've always held the line so the the decline of our membership nationally has gone down more dramatically than it has locally and I think that has to. Do with urban economies being different and also the proximity of people to one another and being. Able to hold a strong strong a strong wall is is. More is more apparent, and and, a lot of, what you know the. Question you're asking is starting in the late nineteen forties it started so men you know the labor statutes Ashley In order, to give. The employer rights that were originally intended just before the workers way the National Labor Relations act which is passed nineteen thirty. Six was a lot so that level the playing field to get, people to power to have collective oysters in the workplace and that was because you know the. Robber barons of lady early nineteen hundreds around the table it's crazy things like apply antitrust laws. Against people organizing you know to racer standards and that's just. Not just money right, it's having, a defined work, day Yeah the job, we started, to erode that in the late nineteen forties to, passage? Of this law called Taft Hartley And then from, there, it became more acceptable for. The, employer, put people, in rooms that have what we call captive audience meetings saying oh you don't need a, union oh you you know why would someone in between you and me and people, that? Sat in those meetings interested what they were for the meanings were. Tended to have had that affected the nation right to steer, people away from the ballot box came time to vote you look at what's going on in this. Country, right now. And a lot of these states that are so called right to work states where unions have hands Back with a half to represent people, who are who are not members of the bargaining units which makes it harder to maintain? Memberships racially seeing a rise in union membership because you organizing organizing. In those states is going up and people's people recognition that. That in those states which are generally low wage states having that protection of the union is necessary Bob hang on with us we're going to continue. Our conversation this morning with Bob writer. Who's on with us? Today from. The Chicago, federation of labor he's the president of that organization we're doing a check in on organized labor head. Of the Labor Day holiday and we'll continue with Bob. But first we need, to take a quick break you update traffic.
