But speaking in Havana yesterday during a two day visit to Cuba, IOC president Thomas Bach said, while they're seeking solutions for Russian and Belarusian athletes, there's still no decision on the matter.

IOC's Bach says Olympics on history's side in Russia issue
"Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky says Russian athletes have no place in Olympic competition, but they would win top prize elsewhere. If the Olympic spores were killings and missiles strikes. But the head of the International Olympic Committee, Thomas Bach says. They've been advised by the UN, they can't discriminate against athletes from Russia and Belarus.

"And I'm Paul Allen in Sydney where we are expecting the ASX to open lower when trading gets underway at the top of the hour futures currently weaker by 8 tenths of 1% Nike futures weaker by about 1% and this is after we saw equity markets in the U.S. posting their third consecutive day of declines. Not that the fed particularly cares we heard from Neil kashkari yesterday, saying he was happy to see some selling going on in the stock market. We've heard from three other fed speakers as well on the 24 hours since we'll talk a little bit more about what they had to say in a moment, but Richmond fed president Thomas Bach and summing up the sentiment nicely saying the fed's going to do whatever it takes to get to that 2% inflation target. We saw some better than expected numbers for U.S. consumer confidence and job openings as well, so there's plenty of room for the fed to tighten going ahead, although perhaps we're yet to see some of the impact of the tightening that's taken place already as suggested by one of our guests earlier. Let's take a look at what else is going on. We've got the oil price easing off a little, stress on a little was still about $90 a barrel 91 94 for a barrel of West Texas right now. We've got natural gas prices just ease off slightly as well and again emphasis on the slightly we did get news from the EU today saying that it will intervene in energy markets if necessary mechanism not in place for it to do that yet, but the sentiment is clearly there. The EU though has reached guest storage goals two months ahead of schedule, so these two factors combine to push natural gas prices just a little lower. We've got the U.S. ten year last traded at three ten to two year three 44, the yen sil week against the greenback one 38 74 as is the yuan the offshore offshore yuan continuing to depreciate against the dollar 6 92 32 and as always the onshore fixing going to be very closely watched later on as are China's PMIs for the month of August 3rd you have later on as well. Manufacturing PMI likely to improve but still a negative territory while more manufacturing PMI likely to see a bit of easing in August as well. That is your market update.

"It is 9 30 a.m. in Hong Kong and here in Singapore, I'm Juliette Sully. And I'm Doug Krishna at the Bloomberg interactive broker studio in New York, fair amount of positivity and equities across the apac region, particularly in Hong Kong where the hang sang in the opening moments is up more than 1.3%. What the heck is going on will check in with Brian Curtis momentarily for a closer look at the market action. Right now, a few of the sours top business stories. Well, fed laid as pledging an aggressive fight to cool inflation on CNBC said Louis fed president Jim bullard said he favors front loading big rate hikes. He said this could help the booster fed's inflation credibility. Meanwhile, fed presidents Thomas Bach and of Richmond and Neil kashkari of Minneapolis both said the fed is far from done, and they warned a recession could be the outcome. Kashkari also throwing cold water on the notion of rate cuts next year. Some financial markets are indicating that they expect us to cut interest rates next year. I don't want to say it's impossible, but it seems like that's a very unlikely scenario right now. Given what I know about the underlying inflation dynamics are more likely scenario is we would continue raising and then we would sit there. And kashkari said it is still possible for the fed to achieve a so called soft landing. Meanwhile, San Francisco's Mary Daly said the fed can counter inflation without triggering mass unemployment and an economic downturn. Well, after the bell we learned that Walmart is cutting about 200 corporate jobs, the retail giant cited rising cost bloated inventories and weakening demand for general merchandise. It was only last week. Walmart slashed its annual profit forecast for the second time in less than three months. Meantime, we are told Walmart will be adding some jobs in certain areas that will include ecommerce health and wellness, add sales and, of course, the supply chain, you know, so far this year, Walmart shares are down nearly 10%. Self bank has raised as much as $22 billion in cash through the sale of pre played forward contracts using Alibaba shares. This reported by the Financial Times, the report saying SoftBank has executed the sale of about a third of its Alibaba mistake through these contracts so far this year. SoftBank has used its Alibaba shares to engage in complex derivatives transactions for purposes which include hedging exposure. So bank shares up by 2% in early trade and of course we're looking at Alibaba to opening up by 5.4% in Hong Kong. Uber has sold its minority stake in the Indian food delivery company's ometo, data from India's BSC stock exchange show. The deal was valued at around $390 million. Now, this sale does represent Uber's exit from the Indian food delivery market, and now Bloomberg intelligence is saying offloading the stake may be a precursor to Uber exiting from more unprofitable delivery markets. Well, we saw a gain on the hang scene on the open as you mentioned, but Macau stocks under pressure. Let's get all the latest with Bloomberg's Brian Kurt as Brian. Right, Asian stocks are higher, Jules, the rally is being stoked by earnings and strong economic data. And that suggests that talk of recession is probably a little out of step with the magnitude of the current slowdown. A bet's on further fed rate hikes pushed up shorter maturity treasury yields. We've got the yield on the two year at 3.06% and the yield on the ten year all the way down at 2.69%. So we just mentioned some of the rallies Hangzhou index up more than 1.6% now and the CSI 300 in China is up half a percent. The tech index powered by those numbers that Jules just gave you on Alibaba and saying tech index is up to and a half percent, Tencent is rallied as well up 1.6%. But there's a very interesting story I wanted to tell you about. So I use some time on this AMT digital. Ever heard of it? Well, it's a Hong Kong based company that's listed in New York and listed just around three weeks ago. Its share price has surged so much that its market cap is more than $200 billion now. And it means that it's worth more than Wells Fargo, Morgan Stanley, and Goldman Sachs. And it only reported $25 million in revenue for the year ending in April of 2021. At least on paper, that makes it the 5th biggest financial company in the world after Berkshire Hathaway, JPMorgan, Bank of America, and ICBC. What does it do? AMT the digital develops digital businesses, including financial services. Briefly, looking at some other numbers for you this morning, we're looking at the ten year while I mentioned the ten year yield slipping a little bit this morning oil is now trading at 91 32 and right now that is a little bit of a bounce off levels of around 90 that we saw. U.S. inventories up there and being blamed for that. Gold $1785 and 60 cents a Troy ounce. And just briefly looking here at some of the leading share prices in the hang seng index because that is really the biggest mover today. Right now we've got wuxi biologics up more than 5% this morning along with gigli automobile and as Juliet mentioned, we're seeing some selling in some of them account named sans China down 1.6%. Juliet back to you. Thank you, Brian. It is 35 minutes pass the out time for global

Tokyo and after a holiday yesterday we've got the market in Australia pushing higher with the ASX 200 better by about 6 tenths of 1% We'll take another look at market action in 15 minutes Let's get global news at Baxter is in the Bloomberg 9 16 newsroom in San Francisco Eddie All right we're just in the past few minutes Douglas Yonhap is a reporting out as up on the Bloomberg terminal that North Korea has fired another projectile toward the east sea We will get you a more details on that NATO secretary general is suggested meetings with Russia to talk about its concerns Meanwhile direct talks between Russia and Ukraine today both sides saying small improvement to new talk schedule in two weeks U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken says the U.S. has delivered a letter to Russia to see whether Russia is serious about talking and resolving the issues U.S. meanwhile is urging Americans in Ukraine to consider departing now China is saying that a U.S. bid to let us diplomats exit the

says he is not resigning and will fight on And IOC president Thomas Bach says he will meet with tennis player During the Beijing games In San Francisco I'm at Baxter this is Bloomberg art rich All right and getting back to our guests with a half hour James about it managing director and chief investment officer at a center asset management So James I mean there were a lot of let's say an answer questions from Jay Powell earlier of course when he back to march liftoff and didn't rule out a lot of things and didn't really in a lot of things as well So how much of this is also I was giving him as much wiggle room as possible Well I think one of the things that's happened is the failure of build back better not passing and being maybe on permanent hold is that deficits are going to be more friendly And that's going to give the fed the ability to actually be more aggressive in tapering its purchases of bonds and ending QE sooner I think that's one key thing to take out of the flexibility argument that he has I think one thing that we have to always go back to however is the fact that we've turned the treasury market from the risk free rate of return into the return free risk environment And one of the great underreported stories last year which came out of CalPERS which is the largest pension fund is that they codified permanent use of leverage to meet their return targets Why Because the returns that they were able to generate off of fixed income investments and there are other investments in your portfolio It was just simply too low to meet their environment And what that really does is expose them a level of low interest rates where convexity leads to potentially higher drawdowns Let's not forget counters is the same pension plan that took its S&P puts off in February 2020 So maybe that's an indication for people to be aware of risk in the bond market Back to companies you mentioned the importance for them to manage their profit margins well And does that mean that for the companies that actually went on a spending spree anticipating really strong growth this year companies like Intel that this is now going to become a tough year and can that guide our investing It's potentially correct in the sense that what we're looking at and the point that you raised about Kimberly Clark before the break was spot on is that you have to remember is that return on capital which is what really drives stock prices And I would like to get back to the basics Is profit margin times asset efficiency So companies that are unable to basically offset the decline in profit margin with better asset efficiency I think are going to struggle this year Now one company that reported today was Archer Daniels Midland the big grain processor It came in with flat profit margins because of pricing pressure on its input costs and labor and so forth However it's return on assets return on capital was higher because of better asset efficiency So I think those are the names that you want to gravitate towards as well as companies that have the ability to capture nominal sales growth from inflation Absolutely It's just a pivot to defensive in some ways Is what you're saying here in essence Yes I think this is going to be a year And I don't think this is a great analog to the year 2000 but as the last time I was on a month ago we were talking about a potential collapse in the NASDAQ Now it's actually happened And it's very much akin to what happened in April 2000 in the NASDAQ but people forget that the real peak in the market for the S&P anyhow wasn't until late August early September So I think the vix reaching over 35 on Monday was kind of the crashes over for now And I don't think we're at a point now where we're going to see the same type of movement I think we go sideways and maybe I think our desire is to make money when we can and preserve capital when it's most needed So flat might be the new up for at least the time being here So what about supply constraints Is that something that does get sorted sometime in the middle of this year or does it last until next year No I think it keeps going for a long time and this is really a point that I think people have misunderstood in terms of the supply constraints in basic industry infrastructure energy and other places And whether it's Omni krom or other variants coming up growth scares.

"The big money issues in the world of sports I'm Michael Barnes And I'm Mike lynch Coming up today we go to the brand spanking new UBS arena the new home of the New York islanders for a conversation with majority owner John ledecky and Shaq I said Shaq That's with a cue That's right Stay tuned for that moment with Shaquille O'Neal coming up Straight ahead on the Bloomberg business of sports show But first let's look at some of the top stories of the week And let's begin with a story that had a lot of people concerned and still has a lot of people concerned and it involves Chinese tennis star ping schwa She had been missing for many days several days at least in November because she had put out on her post on social media that she had been sexually abused by a high ranking member of the Chinese government And right after that they shut down her post and you didn't hear from her for several days Well just recently the IOC conducted an interview with ping she says that she's fine and she's grateful for all of the well wishes she would like people to respect her privacy But here there are a lot of questions about this because one it was supposed to that interview put to rest many things about concern about her but it kind of did the opposite because many people are now wondering why can't we get a hold of her Why can't we talk to her When she independent news organizations are not allowed to talk with her and really it's very concerning Well the number one question is she safe right now She claims she said home but no one's been able to see her and verify that The interview was a video conference by the IOC president Thomas Bach and many including me see it as a propaganda move So that sponsors will not pull out of the games which are only three months away by the way and the games will go on The Chinese government always suppresses dissent and we've seen several examples of that most recently especially with canter of the Celtics and he spoke out against the government and they pulled salt exchanges off their streaming services So there's a lot of unanswered questions in this story and I think if I'm a big sponsor of the games in Beijing in February I'm looking very very carefully at this Well somebody else is looking very very carefully at this and that's a lot of sponsors There's a lot of money involved with this The IOC honest They don't want to disturb the sponsors in there about more than a dozen major league sponsors including Coca-Cola you're talking billions of dollars here so they're hoping to put the sponsors minds at ease The question is have they done it lynching I don't know I don't think they have That's why I think a lot of these big sponsors are just they've hit the pause button right now on commitment and I would not be surprised if the story is not more clarity to this story There's going to be some real threats and it could come from government President Biden even hinted last week that there's a chance that the United States may boycott the games Let's talk about something maybe a little more happier Odell Beckham junior he signed with the rams Now let's take it back to the story in case you don't know He was with the browns earlier this season only a few weeks ago and let's say the marriage didn't quite work So OBJ is set free and then the ram said hey you want to come on over here Sure Now the irony of the whole thing is well we were all thinking at the time well where is OBJ going to go Because you have Robert Woods Nope you don't have Robert Woods now because he suffered a season ending injury and now that opened up the lane for OBJ what do you think about all this Well he's signed a deal with cash app as did Aaron Rodgers and he wants to have all his 100% of his pay this year now the piece of the season's more than half over right now So he sold about $4 million And he wants it all In Bitcoin all of it and he has pledged a $1 million to be slipped between some of his followers on Twitter And I did go on Twitter I love you o-b-gyn You always met my man My favorite guy I was curious to see how it worked But it's.

for her safety In San Francisco I'm at Baxter this is Bloomberg Paul All right thanks very much I guess for the half hour is Paul Merkel global FX research hit at HSBC And Paul we saw a pretty decent jump in the Bloomberg dollar spot index following pals reappointment as the fed chair You tell us what signal you see this sanding to the markets Well I think this idea about consistency is it's just reaffirming that the fed is still going to be pivoting to more hawkish hawkish stance Now the language has already been increasingly evident whether from Powell or other members over the last the last few months But the way that we view it is it's clearly dollar positive Yes bitch stacking up now that we're going to see one maybe two rate hikes next year What are your expectations around this And where do you see the dollar ending at 2021 Well I mean our view on the dollar has been very much a positive one for a number of months now And I think that that's going to remain the case since the end of this year but as you continuing next year And I think that I think the market is probably going to have to recalibrate its expectations possibly even further come to December fed meeting because that's when we're going to get new growth and inflation forecasts from the fed new signals in terms of what the dots could be suggesting So the market clearly has expectations about how many rate hikes could be coming through in 2022 But still there's more room for things to be heating up even further on that front Second I put you on the spot to you in the zero one two more than two rate hikes next year I think right now that the market pricing are looking for potentially two maybe even three is where rational thought is centering on And I think that that makes sense that this juncture But for people still thinking it's going to be some point in late 2023 or something like that That's what the increasingly increasing shaky A little bit closer to this part of the world in the Asia Pacific We've got an Abbey and Z statement tomorrow The consensus is for a 50 basis point hike 25 might be a dovish possibility What do you sit on this And what's the risk of a downside surprise and an impact on the kiwi dollar Well our house used that we're thinking that they're only going to raise rates by 25 basis points So it does seem that the hawks are very much circulating in many different central banks these days around them that is and I think we need to be a little bit careful here because yes I mean the outlook for New Zealand and our BMS policy that is is that inflation expectations have indeed been rising but a lot is actually already been factored into the rate curve in terms of how much heightened there could be over the next one to two years So we think it's going to be more of a slower start for them rather than jumping the gun and starting with something like 50 basis points If you're looking for carry options how appealing is the key at the moment It's not one of our preferred currencies I mean look in the context of so called G ten currencies Yes it may be flashing from a level perspective higher than some others That's obvious But I think where there's a potential for some catch up in terms of rate repricing to support the respective currency could be the Aussie dollars So we're more the other way of the outlook for antipathy and currencies you like yogi dollar more than the kiwi dollar And this is something where I'm not in a short term basis.

her 1500 character essay accusing former vice premier Zhang Ali of pressuring her for sex To unpack this saga we are joined by Bloomberg China government reporter Colin Murphy column thank you for joining us What do we know about this call between punctual and the IOC And to what extent does it alleviate some of these concerns about her well-being Right so we know that it was about a 30 minute conversation and that there were two IOC officials there including Thomas Bach And on the other side there was of course punk and she was also accompanied by a friend So it does allay some of the fears that about her physical safety But the big issue here of course is whether she's free and whether she can continue to speak or have a chance even to speak about what's happened to her and try to find some sort of solution in a resolution to that situation that she's found herself in And people are column suspicious of the recent videos of WeChat posts Yes I mean it's not help that the degree of amateurish sort of approach to the different messaging that's come out over the past week Last week of course we had a letter that come from the women's tennis association But over the weekend we had some more items We had a WeChat post so we had a video at a restaurant et cetera and so forth and her appearance at a tournament on Sunday morning All of which were not sufficiently convincing frankly speaking because she didn't really speak on her own accord It wasn't posted to her own WeChat moments For example so the question is why is everything being expressed through other people or other sort of organizations Why can't she just speak for herself Column is it your sense that the authorities think they've done enough to kind of put this story to bed or was there more they're more steps that Beijing and the propaganda ministry officials they could take Well the foreign ministry has been typically sort of sidestepping questions all of last week And from what I hear today I wasn't there myself but my colleague was you know there's been no major advancement on that So there's still definitely trying to keep a tight lid on this I mean what the world really needs is for to be able to reach out to her association which is the WTA and speak to them frankly they're the ones that have said quite clearly what they need to be reassured and instead she's reaching out to the IOC So that's quite confusing Of course an interview with foreign media would do a lot to LA concerns but you know the question is that going to happen and not as obviously not very clear whether that's going to happen But yeah even more discussion on social media by Chinese people themselves who we saw a little bit more of that You know these all of these things together would help to sort of reassure people that she's okay Connor thank you so much for being with us That is a bit of a China government report of Colin Murphy Yes and still the question really about whether this threatens

Canada, Australia will not send athletes to Olympics because of coronavirus
"If there are Olympic games this summer if Canada will be there the Canadiens grabbing headlines Sunday evening when their Olympic committee announced that they would not be sending athletes to any Olympics in the summer of twenty twenty Australia hasn't gone as far as Canada well the Australian athletes have been advised to prepare for the Tokyo Olympics to be in the summer of twenty twenty one because an Australian team quote could not be assembled in the changing circumstances at home and abroad the IOC's Sunday saying they will be exploring their options for the Tokyo games over the course of the next four weeks a worldwide group representing Olympic hopefuls and their supporters has been pushing the IOC to officially postponed the IOC's been steadfast in the past week plus saying the intention has been to hold the games are scheduled but there's been quite a bit of push back Sunday the IOC making its announcement that it would take a month to examine things Christine Brennan from USA today earlier on ESPN radio they had to do that by the international committee president Thomas Bach a former athlete himself actually with boy cut it out in the nineteen eighty Olympics so he he understands the plight of athletes including opportunities and and how difficult that can be now the president of the international Olympic committee and he has really lost the athletes shockingly as a former athlete himself he hasn't been responsive kind of Nero fiddling while Rome burns and he had to do this today and what what happened was that he thought a letter statement from the international Olympic committee basically saying that they will now be here the athletes to hear their concerns I think that the driving real difficulty training they're concerned about their health they're concerned about the well being of their family members and friends that they might be training with if if they're going for the Olympic Games what is the status of Olympic trials around the world a venue that the ability to even find a swimming pool to swim and that really came to time Olympic gold medalist kicked out of the Indiana University poll because they closed then kicked out of the YMCA three time Olympic gold medalist kicked out of the Y. is living in Indiana that's the plight of these athletes right now in the midst of all of our restrictions and understandable concerns about the pandemic and so Thomas Bach the IOC president finally got it and having lost the athletes you trying to win them back by saying he hears their voices he hears their concerns that it will be for weeks now that they will spend looking at the options the weather all the games this is another July twenty fourth August ninth in Tokyo which seems unlikely or postpone them which is kind of like turning a battleship not like postponing the NBA or the NHL or moving the masters and the British and the Boston Marathon guys this is a whole different thing to move an Olympics would be extraordinary and unprecedented but that's what they're looking at right now and look at themselves for weeks that decision do you think you made the right call Christine because I know that he use the word premature in terms of making a decision on whether the Tokyo games will be played but given the uncertainty around the corona virus and the number of leagues worldwide that have either postpone their seasons canceled their season said you know we're gonna put a pause on this and come back in twenty twenty one and we think this will be gone do you think that the Olympics should have taken that same approach are you where do you stand on the side of what Thomas Bach said today right Cordero I think I think that's the only decision you could make because they're trying to kick the can down the road a little bit and you're actually right other athletes who are endangering their health by continuing to train we don't know the answer to that will know if and when someone had positive for coronavirus and and that will probably be the definitive answer to your question that would be unfortunate to get to that point but you have to be NBA shut down when they had back with her to go there I think we may well see if that be the case even though it's a very different scenario because athletes are training all over the country all over the world and often they're by themselves or with just one or two people drive like they're in arenas that are full of fans it's it's a different scenario but I do think we cover the Olympics since nineteen eighty four our coverage you know never intern summer nothing surprises me about with the international Olympic committee will do and how to lead and to stand out of it they are and so with that in mind I think this is probably the only decision they were going to make because they want to take a little more time but my sense is postponement is on the horizon even though that is incredibly difficult for a city like Tokyo that they're preparing for what seven eight years for the moment obviously this is so much different than just moving a tournament a few months or even a year because of course as we know the Olympics are once every four years Summer Games once every four years later and often for those athletes at the once in a lifetime experience which I think is one of the positive body image on the committee might be trying to save the game even if it can be seen at that so negative in so many ways I understand those who defame postpone right now but we'll get there give you that answer very soon and hopefully all athletes will remain safe while they're continuing to train professionals say they'll take the next month and figure things out the Olympics if delayed for twelve months wouldn't be the first event pushed to twenty twenty one the Dubai World Cup is off until
