Thea vents of the virus is still a very big issue in the United States in Europe, not quite so much in Asia. But the race to the vaccine on the one side and the rap advance of virus on the other definitely has investors a little bit more cautious now than what we saw in the news was first announced he had a very positive day. On Wall Street, the Dow Industrial's up 1.6% of the S and P 500 up 1.2% and the NASDAQ up 8/10 of 1%. So you can kind of see from those numbers that it was basically positive for everyone. It wasn't a big pullback in Tech, a big pull back in the stay at home stocks. Where on Lee Value benefited the all day But now you do see here in Hong Kong. Xing indexes flat to slightly higher and you have tech really taking a beating now down about 2% for the Hang Sang tech index. Stocks like 10 Cent and Ali Baba, you know off the best levels. 10 Cent actually down 1.3%, also in China, the major indices, they're down about 3/10 of a percent still quite positive in Taiwan, the tax up about a half a percent. The big story was the modern, a vaccine and details on that coming up with the guys in a moment. Couple of other quick lines. Airbnb filing for an I P o. The company has outlined a lot of the losses that they've suffered because of the pandemic, but also optimistic about the future. Tessalit join the S and P 500. This sock surge PNC financial services buying bunco Bilbao's US operations, and that's a big deal. $11.6 billion Dolly In one of 4 54. The yield on the 10 year 89 basis points Doug to you. Well, you were right. Brian and Moderna was the primary driver of the price action here in the States, the company reported very encouraging data on its covert 19 vaccine. Found to be 94 a half percent effective Now, this is preliminary analysis of a large late stage clinical trial modern. His vaccine relies on messenger RNA technology. This is basically the same approach being used by Fizer. Donna said First analysis of the data from more than 30,000 volunteers show. Vaccine prevented virtually all symptomatic cases of covert 19. The vaccine also appeared effective in preventing the most serious infections. Moderna CEO Stefan Ban Cell told us The company is working closely with the Trump Administration on distribution. The operation. What speed has been working in the US very closely with the CDC for a long time, and we're in daily discussions with them What we're gonna do. As soon as we got in approval, or anyway by their U. S idea is to ship the product. We are McKesson with the U. S government has selected because we are very active in the seasonal through Process to get the vaccines out Toe hospital and pharmacies. So is Mr Ban Cell suggested there. Moderna is expecting the FDA to grant emergency use authorization based on final analysis that would involve 151 the covert cases now the company did receive as he indicated. Help from the operation Warp Speed program. Moderna received about $955 million Paul. President elect Biden said containing the virus is the key to the nation's economic recovery. He might first remarks on the economy since being elected, and he called food cooperation between business and government. Hadn't made today with CEOs of GM and Microsoft, as well as a key labor leaders, and he said the talks were encouraging. We all agreed that we want to get the economy back on track. We need our workers to be back on the job by getting the virus under control. We're going in a very dark winner things they're going to get much tougher before they get easier. That requires very no effort to fight covert so that we can open. Our business is safely resume our lives and put this pandemic behind us. It's going to be difficult, but it could be done and they all agreed. That means rallying the country behind a national strategy with robust public health measures like mandatory masking widely available testing, with rapid results, scaled up production of life saving treatments and therapeutics and safe, equitable and free distribution of the vaccine. The Biden administration's economic plan is based on the build back and better proposals offered during the campaign that includes not awarding government contracts to companies that don't build their products in the US I'd also laid out of buy American manufacturing plan and plan for federally funded research and development and all the Biden campaign estimates its proposals on manufacturing and buying American will create five million jobs.

"The Bloomberg 9 60 newsroom in San Francisco, it all right, Thank you. Doug. Dr Henry Kissinger on the Bloomberg New Economy Forum, says a Biden administration needs to move quickly to restore Lines of communication with China or risk slipping back into a situation similar to World war One is the way he put it. Meanwhile, former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair and former U. S. President Bill Clinton, who appeared also on the new economy form, agreed that Covert and climate change can bring the globe together and lift the globe because China's integral in both and relations can be restored. President elect Joe Biden says his team needs to start getting information from the Trump administration regarding plans to distribute the vaccine. He says people could needlessly die if Trump continues to delay by and also says he wants people working. But that personal care is required to get on the other side of the pandemic, especially leading up to a vaccine members of the team that helped deliver the presidency to George W. Bush after the 2000 recount. Do not see a path now for Donald Trump to overturn the election in California, seeing a statewide surge and the governor puts 94% of the population in the highest danger. Tear rolling back openings in San Francisco. I'm Ed Baxter, This is Bloomberg. Brian, sir. All right. Thanks very much for that. Let's get to our next guest to get some inside Song. The markets Mark Cranfield, Bloomberg and live reporter. And one of the topics that we might discuss. Marc is a question of the day when will the S and P 500 hit 4000? We've been talking about the modern a vaccine announcement today as a major driver, but Vaccine development has been a driver for a while now, with the fighter announcement last week, and also the stimulus that's there, and so many other factors as well. Uh, you know, no, no sort of major concern about the movement forward for the Biden administration. So what are you hearing? I mean, the major negative is the path of the infections. But on the positive side, there's quite a lot of factors. Yeah, and you haven't mentioned the Fed either. There's certainly been some hints, but because the stimulus has been pushed back so far that the fate now feel more pressure to increase their balance sheet. So Quite a decent chance that in December that they will say that they're going to do more QE, which is obviously also benefit to equities in particular as well. So that certainly Still being affected in to the market as well. But as you say the vaccine news there's been some there was some of the vaccine news was out already. But possibly the Madonna. Development isn't even stronger indication than the one related to fight it because of my Dona vaccine is easy, more easily to be transported around the world on it and the other one. But it's not just that means there are there are a few other vaccines also in development, which could will come close to being released as well. So all of that is certainly beneficial to To equities into the mood as people think about where 2021 is going to go. That's probably going to be the big driver for the next couple of weeks. People maybe now upgrading their outlook, particularly for the 1st and 2nd quarters of 2021. You can't really think of the S and P, though, is as a monolith, can we? I mean, not all stocks on that index is gonna benefit from vaccine that there are probably some there, then the stay at home portfolio that might not do so well. Yes, we've already seen some rotation away this month in particular were seen Some of the tech stocks were doing extremely world during the the most severe stages of the lockdown. They're not doing a swell as people move into other sectors, but there are plenty of other Areas for people to shift money, too. So even though you're gonna have some setbacks in in the tech before you can see the NASDAQ has not bean moving are strongly Over the past couple of weeks, but there are still the textile company. They're still making plenty of money, so they're not gonna retreat too far, but the same time you have a number of beaten down sectors. Travel related would be would be one of them, obviously where they've been. They've been knocked down so far that on a relative basis, they look as though they could do pretty well. So Certainly going to be people scouting around for these people have left behind. It's happened over the past month. As you say, already, the feeling of the S and P equal weight and the Russell 2008 events 16% or so in the last 2 to 3 weeks, which is quite remarkable and and money is also flowed into Tokyo. The Nikkei is one of the best performing index is so My question to you is if Citigroup is right and dollar drops, say 20% over the next year, who emerging markets and non U. S markets really benefit. Yes. I mean, the dollar weakness historically has been very good. All markets outside United States, especially those in the emerging market sector and Asia, especially because in General Asia is seen to be Homes for plenty of will run currency regimes. So generally when the when the dollar is is weak, there are several Asian currencies which are seeing us being reasonably good alternatives even more so these days when you have the Chinese Yuan, a strong as it is, But apart from that, you've got the Singapore dollar. The Korean won. Even the Indian rupee to some extent, but mostly Asian currencies are seen as being pretty good. We got the young as well, obviously, which historically does well when the dollar is weak, apart from The times when it's a scene as I had, even as well. So flows out of the dollar was certainly do very well for Asia..

"Let me catch up on the British election understand that the special relationship matters to us a lot Great Britain has nuclear power. They have gone to war with us everywhere we've ever gone to war, South Korea. Vietnam. Afghanistan iraq. The Brits have been there, right with their nuclear power. They're rebuilding aircraft cares to jump jets. They're buying new thirty five. See, I believe they are important. We want them to leave the European Union. I do. I believe they could be. They could regain their past glory. As a trading company has it trading country opened a deal that everyone unburdened by the bureaucracy out of the European Union? And they put the question to the people three years ago. David Cameron won a majority government on the promise to have a referendum on whether or not to stay in the European Union and the people of Great Britain, voted, very healthy margin four or five percent four percent fifty to forty eight leave leave everyone in the country knew it was being talked about, like the vote for two thousand sixteen Hillary or Trump Trump won the constitutional majority. He didn't win the popular vote. I know that he won the constitutional majority of the way we've elected president since the framing of the constitution, and so Great Britain matters a lot to us. They've had great prime ministers, like Mattie Thatcher. They've had terrible. Prime Minister Gordon Brown. They've had good prime ministers. Tony blair. They've had week prime ministers. Theresa May have had funny prime ministers like the MAC. Mcmillan. They've had Wilson that all sorts of he was terrible. We need a good one right now. Theresa May has been terrible and feckless and they're not out of the peon union yet. So number of conservatives the way that it works over there as prime minister resigns as Theresa May has as the leader of her party. She remains the caretaker, prime minister and the party election, a leader who will in turn be elected that prime minister by the members of parliament. Well, how does a party with one hundred forty thousand card carrying members? I mean, these are the people really work the hustings these central committee people. These are the people who are delegates, you know, the equivalent to delegates at the Republican national convention, the democratic national convention. They are the party. How do those one hundred and forty thousand people pick a party leader interns, becomes the prime minister, will they vote? But there are a dozen. It's like the democratic primary, there it doesn't a fifteen different members of the Tory party who want to be prime minister, and they've all put out their hands. And they've said they wanted to be and they divide into two. Categories beginning, those who were leaving when Brexit was on the ballot and those who were for remaining when breakfast Brexit was on the ballot three years ago. Theresa May was a remainder. Never made a liquor sense to me that she should be the prime minister after David Cameron resigned and he resigned because he said, I was the remainder. I don't think I can leave a government that is committed to leaving and so pick a new prime minister and they did they pick threes. I mean, she she persuaded her colleagues that she ought to be it. She made Boris Johnson or foreign secretary Boris Johnson led the leave campaign with one principal deputy guiding Michael gov. Who doesn't look the part, but he's very smart also believed to be very slippery. So Boris Johnson police to be very Radic and a lot of fun. And former mayor of London, and a powerful personality says, I'm going to become the next prime minister, I'm going to stand, Michael g-o-v, who wants supported Boris Johnson for prime minister then stabbed him in the back fairly famous move and British parliament parliamentary politics and went over to Theresa May wants to be prime minister, one, other major lever wants to be prime minister Dominic Robb, so there are two lever three levers running Boris. G-o-v and Ron. Two of those three say come October thirty one we are leaving deal or no deal. Michael go says we can't leave without a deal. Michael go minute over the weekend based upon reports of a biography about the come out about him. He was something of a cocaine guy back in the day when he was a journalist. I don't know many journalists back in the day, who worked cocaine guys. But then again, I wasn't around London much. I'd have to ask Mark Stein about that. So Mike go by the way, we don't allow admitted cocaine users enter the United States. So it's gonna be tough to become the prime minister if you're we bought Brits before who, don't who had cocaine problems from coming in the United States. We don't want cocaine in the United States. And so he says he's reformed in a lot of time. We'll see how that plays out, but he's daddy that one's done. So from the leave side, there are Dominic Robb, and Boris Johnson. Over on the leave with a deal side, these are the remains who got religion. They stayed in the government. They didn't quit like David Cameron. They didn't fail like Theresa May. They say they can deliver deal to get us out. They want to lead the conservatives into the next election. They want to be the prime minister. There are a lot of the number one is a guy named Jeremy hunt. If you sent out the central casting, and you asked, please send us your very best central casting candidate for prime minister of Great Britain. They would send you back Jeremy hunt. I mean had in the pocket the whole prince of Wales handsome. He's smart. He's articulate president, like him and Boris Joe Boris. Johnson nickname is the rambling wreck from Georgia Tech goodness, the guy hasn't been to Barbara who's competent and a hundred years. And that's part of his charm. It's just kind of disheveled. Birdie Worcester character. And if you don't birdie Worcester is I can't tell you character from fiction. PG Wodehouse anyway. So Joe is going to what the way you get. The two is that all the members of parliament who are conservatives. And I think parliament's three hundred and thirty that got just under half. So what's that add up to one hundred? Seventy one hundred sixty different people hundred sixty members of parliament vote in a series of rounds. They call them crowns and the rounds are where. You've got to get at least fifteen percent of the hundred sixty which would be nine or ten for around one or you don't get to go around to, and then got ten people. They vote again, with one hundred sixty people and the one with the least votes drops off. And so you can give your buddy of I could be nominated for prime minister. So I would encourage if you're listening in Great Britain, I'd like to be on one of those ballots. Throw one my way, members of Parliament, I, I can't serve if nominated I cannot run if elected I cannot serve because I'm a proud American but, you know be fun at any of it. They get down to nine then, again, they get down to eight they get down to seven. They get down to six five four three two and then some people drop out, eventually, they get to, to get to a finalist and a semi-finalist to people, the person with the most votes parliament and the second most votes doesn't matter what order they in. That's the ballot that goes to the hundred and forty thousand. Electors. Hundred and forty thousand members of parliament. So if you get seventy thousand and one year the next prime minister Boris Johnson is heavily favored. I mean I should look up Ladbrokes. There's a. Betting house right in Ladbrokes online betting you can't use it till legal in the United States. But Ladbrokes always has a, a political thing broke prime minister. Let's see where the odds are this morning. I think for Johnson is the prohibitive favorite. But, but you never know until you actually find Ladbrokes in prime minister because they are constantly changing, and there's a big they call them big beasts. Big players. Michael Hesseltine, John Major people have been former prime minister and defence ministers and stuff like that. Right now. Boris Johnson is a five to four favorite. To become the next Tory leader. And that's prime minister Dominic Robb is a four to one favorite. Andrea lead sin is a ten to one favorite Andrea led. Some though, who's a lever remaining, excuse me. She's a remainder. Andrea, led some picks up no. No support this morning. Michael go visit tend to one. Jeremy hunt is at twelve to one and Peggy more. Dan, is it twenty to one saw Javi is at twenty two one. Those are really the only potentials when Jeremy hunt picked up, amber Rudd today, who was herself a sixty six to one player he'll go up. I think when they published the next odds, it'll be Johnson. Rob led some and hunt and it may be Johnson hunt, because the people don't really wanna leave. The people who are really remains at heart who think this is stupid, and I don't think it's stupid. I'm for them people vote. You got to do it people vote, they're all going to rally around someone. The idea is to the final round Dominic Robb just wants to get to the final round because he thinks. That the remains will prefer him to Boris and the contest is underway, and it's going to be wrapped up by July the contest is underway, and the vetting is the market is open, go back. And, you know if you're if it's legal, if you're in Great Britain, you can go bet. But I, I gotta tell you, I do not believe it makes sense to put a nother remainder in his and I'm very impressed with Jeremy hot. So is the president. I just don't think it makes a lick of sense to nominate someone for job when they were opposed to Brexit. I really really don't the timetable, by the way. For the election. I was looking at the guardian new rule one hundred sixty thousand conservative members and they will they will be casting their ballots, the week beginning July twenty second. So we are a good eight weeks away. And I'll bring you up dates on this. But you can get familiar with the names Boris Johnson Jeremy hunt. Dominic Robb Andrea led. Some, those are the ones you need to know. Michael go with the cocaine problem

"Restricts the seven thirty seven max eight and max nine from operating or overflying Canada Boeing is lower. But still in the green up two tenths of one percent. That's a Bloomberg business flash politics policy, power and law continues. Thank you, Greg. We're live from the Bloomberg interactive brokers studio now a look at Brexit with a little more than two weeks before the March twenty ninth deadline, I profoundly the decision that this houses take that was a very horse Prime Minister Theresa may addressing members of parliament after they voted down her Brexit deal for the second time. Joining us from our Bloomberg ninety nine one studios in Washington DC is Kate Greer. She's the former chief communications on Brexit and trade for the British embassy. And now senior director at CLYDE group. Kate parliament overwhelmingly rejected based Brexit deal last night. Is it assured that they'll rule out a no deal exit tonight? It's almost inevitable because the parties so split, and you can see this. Because yesterday, the prime minister announced it's going to be a free vote. Meaning there will be no whipping within the conservative party and honestly the outcome. Still feel very much like we are stuck in a groundhog day. The option of a no deal a hard deal, a soft Brexit or delay are still all on the table to note. None of these votes are legally binding, okay? So what are you watching for? I know that she's got the focus on the amendments that lawmakers are going to try to force these next steps and these amendments I was going through them earlier there's their voluminous, but they're significant. And my question for you is if anyone fails does that wipe out the whole thing or can they pick and choose? I mean, can we do this all a cart? How does that work is going to be a really long night is what it means? And ultimately, no one knows no one knows because it's a free. Vote and and to be cleared. The vote today is on removing the option of a no deal for March twenty ninth that does not preclude the option of they know Dell later this year, and the legal default is if there is no agreement that it would be a no deal. Now, I've read that some members of parliament are suspicious that this has written the way it was written was in order to keep May's deal in play after it was rejected. So soundly is do you think that's the case? Yes. And no, I think in truth. There is no good alternative option on the table. Right. Nothing that the parliamentarians can really vote on. So even if it wasn't for that purpose. Even if the vote Cam comes out with a no option for no deal, you still want to what other alternatives. Do you have is really the prime minister is still and honestly, this is a small hurdle because the big picture is that future arrangement. Right. And today the government announced the new tariff regime in case there is a no to really consolidate people's minds around. What does it mean? If you have no deal come March twenty nine. Okay. Let's talk about that a little bit. How binding is that announcement the new tariff announced that? Well, it depends on what comes out for a no deal right answering anything it's a temporary shift. And I think the sticking point there is that there's an arrangement for the UK and the EU and the special arrangement between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. And that's where the sticking point on the backs up comes in that's been the sticking point since the very beginning has no progress been made there. Well, the prime minister came back from Brussels, which was part of the dill she presented yesterday that there would be a joint instrument, obviously parliaments have not voted in support of that agreement. But it still remains the biggest issue. Okay. What are you watching for over the next couple of days? This is the small speed bump before we get to the brick wall. Right after this vote. There's going to be another vote tomorrow. And there will be multiple amendments tonight as I said tonight smokes will be really long. He'll be interesting amendments actually do pass and how tomorrow's vote while on delaying article fifty deadline, March twenty nine and to note, even if they vote to delay. They could not realistically delay beyond may when the EU elections occurred kick, do you have a sense with this total confusion, how the people in the UK feel about this? It is really confusing. But honestly, most of the polling and take polling as you will most of the sentiment around the EU referendum still remains, right? There's still a large portion of people who would vote leave and I've heard from 'em MP's on the ground who speak in their constituencies, and the people in their constituency tell them that they may have voted for remain before. But they would vote leave. Now, if there was a second, but they never hear constituents say I voted lead before. And now, I would vote remain. Yeah. I want to bring that up because we talked yesterday to former Prime Minister Tony Blair about that very topic. He has been out he's not in public service anymore, but he's been out really pushing for that pushing for a second referendum. But from what you are hearing on the ground a second referendum. We would just start all over again. I say weekday. We're just aren't all over again. It's very possible. Right. That's the rest that you have by asking the question again. And I think what's most important though, is what does it say about the democratic choice. If you have to ask again, I think depending on how turning yesterday's vote today's vote and tomorrow's vote turns out there's been a lot more whispers in parliament about a second referendum. But I don't see because you still have second legislation that you need to put through parliament. That is a time line in itself outside is the much harder time line of Brexit. So it would be tricky to do. All right. Thanks so much for taking us through the many, many possibilities. That's Kate career. She's the former chief of communications on Brexit and trade for the British embassy and senior director at CLYDE group. She comes to us from our ninety nine one studios in Washington DC coming up on Bloomberg politics policy, power and law, new legislation impacting university research, and while way among other Chinese telecommunications.
