"A let's talk a bit about trade in the markets this morning so I've been twenty four hours president Donald Trump is issue to series of trade threats on three continents it's a reminder to financial markets that the president is comfortable heading into an election year using tariffs as his main source of international economic leverage but as our next guest points out without a trade truce and a US China trade deal the global economy is headed for recession will joining us now is in the test saw who is director of research at wisdom tree very good morning to the test that is not the sort of base case for most the the global economy goes into recession next year but it is for you is that right whoa oh base case is that we could could get some trade deal done because of the presidential election but to yesterday's comments and comments we frequently heard of last few months personal risk on to that so we think that the risk of going into a recession is very high and and we believe that we were started slipping into recession we can see that international trade has slipped considerably global patch the minis indices while they may have patted the little last couple of months but they've been heading south in the below the fifty marker of Dimock demarcation between the construction and expansion so we think that you know do the comments made yesterday and and and and in the months before really increase the risk of recession by many fold is it also part of the mold of the global tariff issue because it's not just China those Atari problem with Donald Trump is threatening massive tariffs on France but also because the Harris on Brazil and Argentina I mean it seems to be among the many fronts this trade worn is that part of the engine which is driving what you're talking about absolutely so you know it started off with primarily a US China trade will but if the reason the success in in trump actually of protecting the did you S. from Chinese imports than that blueprint will be deployed elsewhere we've seen a lot of that this week the terrorists on metals from Argentina Brazil because he's unhappy with their currency policies is hope trump tools and hot I'm happy with the tax policies it in in the on the side of it every year end within days within Europe and he may you that increase terrorists here as well so this punitive tariffs applied relive the place ain't on top of sanctions will re knows our players he wrong in Venezuela so they did the number of protectionist policies or increasing by many fold yeah so protectionism is a is a significant concern but did you think the markets have been there for much too complacent overseas becoming now increasingly difficult actually to price trade war especially when he sees you to becoming so widespread possibly so the impact of these trade wars has probably been a manufacturing so many factions being weak globally but the consumer in the labor market been holding up pretty well and on a global basis not just in the US but in Europe as well but that may not last forever as you know that there will come a point where a slowdown in manufacturing could bleed into the rest of the economy if if the presidential election is will the way to the back end of twenty twenty even if there is a last minute Catholics to get something done it may happen too late and that's why I think the risk of a global recession is pretty high at this point what about the European aspect of that because of the low to focus on to the German dates of French staters well and Italian a sense that we need some sure really where this is moving in European terms we have a new head of the C. B. of course is trying to move towards a whole review of that policy in trying to keep things together what's your take on Europe going into twenty twenty yes I think it you your pet will be a particular interesting area because we will return to we know that interest rates or negative in Europe so the ECB's policy space is very limited we have to think a lot more you know creatively in terms of what he does for a in terms of reaching into his toolbox we know the quantitative easing when deployed previously had been criticized heavily for you know being a set price re re re face rather than goods and service press refresh rate so I think could easily be will respond to some of those criticisms at the same time the European Commission is under new leadership as well and DC be under new leadership of the Christine Lagarde who is a politically astute leader I think that that they'll be a time for creative thinking and that could involve money tree in fiscal institutions becoming closer together even in Germany which is being very very against you know anything beyond interest rate policy you know we are seeing political change there as well the eight SPD are pushing for towards abolishing the zero black policy of balanced budgets if we start seeing that those cogs move we could start to see the ECB and Los number fiscal stations across Europe becoming closer together yeah me seventy seven is dedicated in the pipeline at least if not longer so you yeah we'll have to see but you're a fun as Mrs also meeting today to discuss kind of reforming the year every year and and the banking unit of but it just also want to get your take on a pet because thought it was a pop the more immediate issue folk markets and we've had already put mixed signals about whether we get a get further cuts to output say if Iraq's oil minister speaking saying that they would want to diesel cut of four hundred thousand barrels per day to offset slowing Dimond I mean a lot of other say that does not seem likely that sent out live voice you've taken it is yes Sir it's good it's clear that the opac at least need to extend current cuts that that's a baseline to wed at least to the middle of next year until they have the next policy meeting so I think the okay to keep the policy taking over by sort of mid policy even media policy meetings but beyond that I think the reason a strong incentive to cut even further because we'll prices all extremely weak at this point in time and they're not working knowledge in some of the geopolitical risks but that not seen as something that okay call really could control but the it's hard to for these OPEC countries to expand their topics into it in into the oil fields in an environment of low we call prices one of the top of that Saudi Arabia is just about to float it's a it's a another company a Saudi Aramco and it needs a stronger role of prices for the food to meet its valuations I know he's already notes down these valuations of two one point five two will play seven trillion away from to treat him before but is we embarrassing to go for something even lower than that so Saudi Arabia as a de facto head of OPEC will be pushing all members for deeper cuts alright miss ash thanks very much indignities show the director of research and

U. this is obviously going to have an impact he has one one set up for. this question Davis is what's the next move for Lagarde what's the first move really one of the first movies yeah she has nineteen different governments that she has to get the plate nice together I mean that that's really the hard part she's gonna have to get team work across nineteen a different governments and think about you know the Germans and the Italians and the French all trying to agree on site type some type of capital movement it will that's number one the second thing in in what's removed in maybe it's not monetary policy and you saw that happen here in the United States they said maybe the fed has done what they can do now it's time for fiscal stimulus and you saw when trump come in in in we saw a tax cut in some deregulation the market took off from here we'll have to see if maybe that's the movie and maybe it's not for monetary stimulus but its fiscal stimulus in I we are watching this very closely because of negative yields in over in Europe are driving down our yields Dan and I think that is going to continue and in the meantime we're seen C. E. O. confidence go down for a number of reasons including what senator Warren is talking about with more taxes in there's talk right now from C. E. O.'s Dan that if they want to get something done that

The Last ECB Meeting Under the Control Of Mario Draghi

"The ECB to start off with so we've got the last meeting meeting today under the control of Mario Draghi the ECB boss. That's been there during the financial crisis and he is likely because we're seeing Germany many probably tipping into recession other countries in the euro-zone slowing down considerably. He's going to start more monetary stimulus and political. I I mentioned hair because does he want to restart constitute easing where he's buying debt buying government debt in the markets to pull interest rates because that that the problem with that is lois borrowing costs for governments and that means governments are less less likely to reform their economies because it makes it takes the pressure off governments if they face nice very high borrowing costs. They have to be more in control of their budgets. If the borrowing costs rip down by the European Central Bank then go we don't care about budgets you could just spend loads of money which which is kind of the Italian attitude that so so the trouble with this is one. I'm not sure it's actually going to do much good. The official interest rates for banks is already already negative no point four percent if he cuts that further the Nazi just does damage to banks because it costs them therefore to have cash deposited the European Central Bank if he starts Qaeda as a whole Lotta people who don't like you and we're doing this right before his very last moment in the job before Christine Lagarde turns up to be head of the European Central Bank but what it tells us yet again and we've been talking about this for some time is at the world economic the growth is slowing and in some cases really quite rapidly so everyone says the UK how quickly it slates Brexit's or self. It's self imposed but actually ACA said we're doing better than Germany which looks like it's tipping into recession and I mean another issue. Surely got to be that as you say job. He's leaving at the end of October. People are going to not want to make long term commitments because that will tie Lagarde's Hans exactly and Christine Lagarde she she's not like she's stepping up to this job she was former head of the IMF International Monetary Fund so this is kind of a cross move for her and she must be thinking come on with Mario Draghi. Leave me something to do

Saying ix nay on the bank they see a sixty percents upside potential traitors take a second look and Boeing pausing using stress tests on its new triple. Seven after issue is discovered. We've got the details ahead. We begin with the Big Bang breakout on the day. The S. and P. Five hundred ended in the red checkout. He's he's moves from City Bank. America Wells Fargo David Morgan all firmly in the green for wait a minute. It was just a few days ago. The racer plunging yield curves inverting cats and dogs living together together and now look so the banks turned a big corner guy this desk by the way cats and dogs living together guy who's not sorry sorry who had a cat or a dog. I guess well how good question to answer on TV well. Let's go to the marketplace Sultana think they've turned the corner at all but what happened is everything got a little ahead of itself and it's not like we haven't talked about this. We're not saying this in a vacuum. Go back Tuesday. I think before Memorial Day we actually power-pitch some of the banks specifically it was city saying that you know what boring markets slow week into a holiday markets probably GONNA rally the toto's probably gotten and ahead of itself when city trades that discount to tangible book historically over the last couple of years. It's been a buy and that's pretty much what's happening. I mean I don't think again. The landscape has gotten better for the banks. Necessarily just the trading landscape in the short term has so the city have more room yeah probably overshoot seventy two like it undershot to sixty one but I think the the headwinds that they faced still exists today are some rays of sunshine based on what the CFO told the Barclay Financial Services Conference today that they expect growth in the back. AH The year that there are other parts of the business that can offset some of the losses or the softness in sort of the rate sensitive businesses so can you sort of extrapolate that some of the other brings thinking. Maybe things aren't as bad as people thought yeah I think I think that what the price they were trading at before. Two days ago really reflected a lot of things so I don't think I more that a lot of bed extra too much penalties there. I think if you think about where Citibank was trading you know well under ten times earnings a three percent yield. JP Morgan tend to change times earning a three and a half percent yield Bank of America under ten times earnings. I mean that's a lot about news priced in and their business models aren't all interest income right. There's a lot of other income in there as well so I think you know the market just saying Oh the whole book of Big Money Center banks is a giant two year tenure spread it must be going to zero didn't make sense. I'm not selling them here. I think they're still attracted. I'll actually question because we've had one kind of from a market position. Technicals Protective Talk and fundamentals. I'll talk to you the context of the overall market this this could you could make a comparison to the first quarter twenty sixteen when we're worried about global growth and banks essentially got through this period where once we got the sense that recession was off the table banks want on argue a very historic run for them relative to at least the cycle. Citibank's up thirteen percent eight days. It's up close to sixteen percent in sixteen days if you look at the X. L. F. It's basically kept pace with the SNP. Despite all of the things things that have happened to bank so the most important thing that happened today and I hate hyperbole may but I will tell you I think this is one of the most extraordinary trading days of the year that no one's talking about impressive was flat and yet you had banks three percent. You had expertise three and a half percent. You would transfer this is a major day for the march is not about the banks banks right. It's a behavioral thing. Is You look at the one hundred. What was the best performing stock the more beaten down. You were the better your slumber J. Lead. You Got Simon Property. You've got things like I mean in hindsight which is literally down eighty percent. Ge in the top ten so it's it's not a bank story although it is that's part of the story because they matter the most. It's simply dead. Cat bounces and dead cats do bounds but do they really come to life. No they're still dead heartbeat. It was more about deflation isn't as bad as you thought. I'm not going to tell you that deflation because I believe it's there's some stuff as leftover from the crisis but but deflation as it was exemplified and illustrated through bond yields around the world through gold going through the roof through everything else that was related to acid replacing going through the floor. The rally today are asset based their reflationary based and that's very exciting sites the retail these are retails that won't exist at some point in three five seven whether it's an urban outfitters. Tayo Ay and it's again it's it's it wasn't specific the banks the fact that it was craft. Ge tells you it was just an unwinding. If there's two sides here on this side of the desk extraordinary training day or just dead cats that's bouncing to make extraordinary trading day in terms of the move in yield terms everything he pointed out was extraordinary the context of what we've seen but I tend to sort of I I well. It should come as no surprise ten more with Carter Worth. I do think these are bounces within the framework of things that have just been oversold. I mean you mentioned Simon Properties. These go back and look where it bottomed out in April. Two Thousand Eighteen look where recently bought them at so you can understand the bounce slumber. J. has been left for dead. I mean we've talked about it. Seemingly for a year and a half trying at least I have tried to ascertain when the bottom would be unsuccessfully. We've seen moves like this before. This will be so again. I guess the fact that the SNP when he was unchanged today bowls could say what that someone constructive bears could say it should have been up twenty five handles on a day like today the other flipside of what happened today was growth oath at any price which had been where everyone wanted to go no matter what terrible complete reversal names like crowd strike or zoom right just absolutely getting annihilated highlighted today so you're just a rotation is just everything that didn't work now pile into that everything that did work time to bail but the question is exactly. I can't can't be in a crowd strikers in there too expensive. They're expensive. Yes two days ago even down ten percent too expensive for me. I think would momentum goes out. Those kind of names have were down to maybe more it's not. It's not terribly surprising that a crowd strike in company and their ilk are going down. Maybe on a daily today or just not rallying as much what's been interesting. Is that Koogle Amazon anything. That's been defensive relative momentum but actually you know they. They tend to be low momentum. Stocks in in difficult times in the market are under performing to Carter cares rights talk about. I don't know anything changed slumber J. in the last week in fact I think lenders as got some tough times ahead of them but when I look at some of the other parts of the market including the transports that are very real companies that are not going out of business that I don't think they're dead. Cat bounces. I'm not saying the world has gotten better in two days. I'm I'm telling you that it's always about positioning. It's always about where I think. The market momentum is we've got an ECB meeting coming up in a few days it's also going to I think help tell the tale of work. Global yields yields go because I think that the European Union is the one that was dragging global yields down and we know that the machines momentum is on both sides momentum down or some momentum up in if I go and when it flips. It's the you get these levers going on both sides but it doesn't usually last that long. At what point do you think I mean. Would you would take a lot of time and a lot more of this kind of thing. Because we saw the bouncing we saw in the certainly bouncing today. You just need in a lot more than I I agree cars. I don't think anything can you can't say suddenly it's it's all good for all these things that have underperformed for long time but for the last three weeks we've seen the DAX ax outperforming the machine emerging markets outperformed so This isn't a one day phenomenon today. It was a bit of an exclamation point on things that really suffer from deflation all right her neck. Scott says you may WanNa pump the brakes on the banks especially ahead of next week's. Fed Meeting joining us now. Steve chaperone equity strategists portfolio manager at Federated Investors Steve Great Great to see you again. so is it just the banks or is it all of these sectors that were dead cats bouncing Carter. I don't know if I'd do as far as the dead cat I. I'm somewhere in between I think Carter and Tim here and what I mean by that is it's very enticing when you look at the move in the banks today and you put it in the overall context then that context has rate rates bottom two weeks you go and have moved higher. The city surprise index bounced into positive territory week ago and value in general has moved up so there's an inclination to want US okay this is. This is the move in the value cyclicals that we've been waiting for. I think you need a little bit of confirmation on that. I think you need see what the Fed does in a week. I think they need to deliver against market expectations I think. ECB similarly has to at least provide some some delivering. I think this meeting is not as important as the one that comes in November when Christine lagarde takes over but move the ball forward and then I think you need the data that continue to come in strongly. If what we're talking about is a global reflation trade because the stimulus that's been put in the system helps the economy to move in the in the back half of the year. That's incredibly bullish and so I'm enticed by it but I'm not willing to kind of jump all in on it just yet so how are you. How are you positioned in the market right now. It sounds like like your you want to see how the data plays out. It sounds like you think I mean the federal probably cut twenty-five deliver on something that's sort of in the expected realm the the data is a little bit of a question mark at this point. So what do you do you think about the market right now is really a battle between the P and the right the P. should be higher. We've taken the discount outrage for stocks and we've cut it in half the only reason why the market isn't higher is because the market's concerned about recession and so they're worried about that e part so I think what it really comes comes down to is how our earnings gonNA come through and that's why trade matters. That's why Hong Kong brexit matters our view. Is that our base case. Scenarios earnings are going to be okay. They're going to be flat right to slightly up. You're going to get a revaluation higher because of those lower yields and that's where you play out over the next six to twelve months however over the course of the next month or so. I WANNA WANNA see how that goes. I want to see how the Fed goes. I WANNA see how earning season so when we were here earlier in the year we were eight percent overweight.

Please welcome Madam Christine Lagarde. Welcome to the show. Thank you. It is not often that I sit across people who have access to a trillion dollars. Is this a good time to ask for a loan for those who don't know what is the job of the IMF? Do you mind? Teeny tiny bit of history, of course. Okay. We just celebrated the second World War anniversary. Seventy fifth seventy five years ago. Right. We also have breaking seventy fifth anniversary as well. Does what happened at the time countries decided that fighting each other killing each other was probably, not the way to go because toll started with the body comic situation. So they thought rotten do that. Why don't we set up a club give it a lot of money and have competent people number one give some economic advice number to give some loans in case any member of the club is not doing so, well a number three ask them to give technical assistance. That's what we do. We try to help countries with better prosperity, and we try to help with financial stability, so that the world is not going in to buy the direction..

"Markets, grow, I think that'll be something to watch something a monitoring, look, you know, the the regulatory environment has pushed more credit lending in that direction. And so that'll be something that I think we spent unfocussed so what's the better alternative that regulators pay closer attention to the shadow banking market, or they changed the rules to allow more of that credit to go back to regulate institutions like yours. I think I think it's I think it's a balance. I think I think that over time finding ways you have a better understanding and more transparency as those markets grow will be important for the construct of credit markets. And I'm sure you know, business business leaders are part of the business and regulators are thinking about those. Say that Solomon speaking to Bloomberg's Erik shots at the Milken institute global conference again underscores some of the expectations for the fed.

And it's been a theme and some of the conversations we've had on the program over the next few weeks. You've got a market. That's heating up is the fed is signaling stronghold in the period of growth, but the lower rates are driving investors towards higher risk assets. As well. I mean for decades central bankers have pursued price goals while saying financial stability risks are better croup by regulation. This inflation that is stuck is really puzzling.

"Christine Lagarde emphasizes the need to move beyond the conventional wisdom and to void a backward-looking approach. My personal concern is that the next crisis comes from nowhere. In other words, from the place where we have no idea that it will come from from an area that we're regarded as safe and secure at the moment, but which will suddenly and under the radar screen for a period of time, suddenly plume and threaten the stability that we have and that is something which we care about. And we have a lot of. Vulnerabilities alert systems that bring our researchers and members of stuff together in order to try to see on this big economic and global landscape that we look at where something's coming out that is not going to be friendly to all of us. This is the reason Christine Lagarde explained to me what under her watch the funders initiated work in non traditional areas such as inequality gender and climate change. Mix stern was the driving force behind the stern report on climate change. He explains why climate change is now bankers business. The central bankers many of them all of them, but many of them in some of those in leading countries have recognized that climate change is a major potential source of economic and financial instability. If you're battered by storms and hurricanes that's economic instability on a major scale, and we we've seen these very dramatic facts who storms hurricanes causing major economic damage in different parts of the world, and what we've actually seen so far is small very small relative to what we risk for example, a bigger hurricane sandy that almost wreck New York in two thousand twelve cannot be ruled out with most financial centers near coasts, the expected ocean rise in greater storms will be severely destabilizing climate. Change should be a global priority for many reasons, but in the short term, in my view, a pandemic is the most likely cause of the next financial crisis and one that will woefully ill prepared for Peter Piot, the director of the London School of hygiene and Tropical Medicine discovery bowler. And is the leading global expert on pandemics. I asked him about the risks. They pose a condemn it could trigger a global recession. It all depends. How big it is, of course. And where it will hit, and we know that Spanish flu one hundred years ago, reduce global GDP by about five percent speed trillion in these days, we know that in Hong Kong a very short lived up south. Really hit the GDP by closest three percents, but it was also an increased by two hundred baseball in the country risk premium. So that's another problem. So according to the size of the epidemic. We are talking about damage in terms of trillions. Not in billions. The failure to think beyond finance is the first lesson that has yet to be learned the second is that management and regulations focused on what was happening within individual countries. While the bankers were operating system, which transcended national borders. In the UK the forced separation of investment in retail banks has addressed a number but not all the sources of risk. So Jon Vickers, a colleague at Oxford University chaired the independent commission on banking set up by the UK government following the crisis. I asked him whether this has made banking safer one reason why Britain had a particularly bad crisis was that we have these gigantic institutions doing ornery high-street banking, which we all depend on small businesses. Depend on day to day and all sorts of global investment banking, and they got into trouble on all those fronts, then the second heading was how to make the banks more resilient in the sense of being able to absorb losses. If for more likely when the next crisis hits we recommended a kind of separation called ring-fencing. So this is the idea that the ordinary high-street banking the retail banking current accounts overdrafts. Those core things which we all is individuals and small businesses depend on which a government. Can't let fall over without total calamity that those activities in major banks should be a self standing part of the Bank separated from the global investment banking commodities trading, derivatives exposures to other kinds of financial institution. And all those other things it shifts the dial it increases the odds that you wouldn't imperil domestic banking from a global crisis. And if nonetheless there is some jeopardy to that it puts you in a much better position to deal with that crisis in the UK, despite the adoption of a number of sir John's recommendations banking has become concentrated in fewer hands in the UK as in the US taxpayers money was used to bail out the ailing banks and to sweeten the terms of their merger with bigger banks. The result was that the surviving banks could even bigger and competition was reduced. First the big banks are now too big to fail. And if they collapsed, they would bring down the whole system. This implies that governments which means the tax payers have given them an implicit guarantee of survival. Here's at Monte co author of the bankers new clothes the size of the largest banks, certainly grew. There will tell you that they deals the favor of swallowing the weaker institution. But there's really nothing natural and nothing efficient about the size and complexity of these institutions if they lived in market, they couldn't actually live like that at all not one day, it just that they have a privileged existence where they keep getting funding despite being so risky, and Seoul Paik there. Too many privileges and too many subsidies that come along with the status of being sort of that big dominant. And so all the counterparties want to deal with you because they know you can't default on your loan. I asked her with the measures to prevent the next financial crisis had improved matters or made them worse. I think that it has made things worse. And even though it may have been the first response quickest solution it really ended up with a system ten years later. That's pretty scary. And distorts the economy about competition and about just about anything the growing complexity and interdependency of the banking system was facilitated by revolutionary technological changes such as growing computer power which allowed physics and maths graduates to build financial products, which their top bosses, let alone the regulators politicians and customers do not understand far from reducing and offsetting risk. The innovations were raising and spreading it. I think we were told that all these innovations and that word used around Silicon Valley where I am a lot innovation was kind of a great thing that it would allow more efficient funding would spread the risk ever more efficiently around the world. And instead it was. Really a lot of financial innovation is really about clever ways to hide or asks sent clever ways to avoid taxes in clever ways to do things that are not necessarily useful for society. So yeah. At some level, you you want a functioning financial system, and the financial system can do wonderful things but out of control, it's it's really dangerous. And I think that a lot of energy was spent in justifying things that are not that great and in avoiding discussion of all the subtle way. Sometimes in which the public was deceived. Amiss sold and other misconduct that goes on in this industry. As the.
