they said selling reebok. -- adidas $73.83. siemens is down, a report they are selling three businesses. and on friday i covered a story in our's sources say according to -- there we go. those disappointing pmi numbers. you can call it a marginal effect. the aussie dollar has had a bit of a flurry. the momentum there through april through may as the recovery.
not very well for rate cut tomorrow from the rba. the market is the least short. aussie dollar down for the fourth day in a row. jonathan: thank you. looking forward to the rba decision. four days of the tens negotiations and no sign the country is any closer to a deal with its creditors as a 200 million euros repayment looms on wednesday. for all of the latest we are joined by marcus. it investors take -- for the investor's take, a strategist at j.p. morgan. marcus, the results for preliminary agreement and it doesn't look like where anywhere near an agreement.
never mind a final agreement. what are your thoughts. marcus: another self-imposed deadline has gone by. they want to some level. both have stressed the progress on the creditors side they talk about the process and perhaps translate that to satisfaction. they are still far apart. and on the greek side as well. a lot of optimism. they are close but at the same time red lines. market reforms.
for the greek government -- jonathan: just to jump in a look at the data. nowhere near a deal. and it has a real impact, do you can dan do you expect it to continue? marcus benasson: absolutely. not just as long as the talks go on but the uncertainty. and also before the talk started. the greek economy starting to the track. probably back in recession now. the lack of funding and the liquidity squeeze on two sides. the lack of money on the government and they have to make the debt payments and the banking system on a tight leash. the government [indiscernible] whether they meet salary and
pension and keep paying. they have to cut back on payments to suppliers. this will not effect in the real economy. the commission will release a forecast which will cut down on the 2.5% growth this year. many economists will say it kind of growth this year is good. unemployment remain more then 25% of the workforce. a lot of people will talk about the market as being frozen. people talking about the uncertainty. jonathan: expecting more of the data. thank you to marcus benasson bloomberg news reported. i want to bring an global strategist at j.p. morgan. great to have you with us. another self-imposed deadline.
political headlines tease you with the prospect of an agreement and then we do not get one. a lot about how a yen is sidelined. it does not seem to mean much. -- a lot about how young is former fox us has been sidelined. guest: at the moment, i can confirm there is no smoker on the eu solution. the clock is ticking like we know and the next 15 days will be the reshuffling of the repayment and it is definitely positioned and we hope the only thing we can do as the investor is common sense will wub, -- win, we have always -- with already lost was valuable time. i see a lot of intention. and we have to acknowledge and
since the beginning of the year and we are nowhere near to the decision time in the next 15 days brief nobility of greece to finance is self through the option will aid over time in the next coming weeks. they will have two have funding to survive -- they will have to fund to survive to be able to pay the imf. very crucial time. jonathan: it is a crucial time. the market reaction in europe seems to become completely distance the ties to these talks as they carry on and on. we told about the self-imposed deadlines. may 11, if we do not get a deal can they pay the imf back through this month? vincent juvyns: the question is if they can reign in cash by
that time? to collect all of the cash from local institutions will be key to a lot of them to pay. a lot of local institutions last week to handover i its cash. it is very hard to have exacted data on the actual cash levels in agrees. we suppose we and up in a worse case -- end up in a worst-case scenario where the greek government is not able to accept what the creditor ask for them and they will be obliged to ask greek citizens whether they accept more austerity, get the cash or being what to survive in the next coming months. there was interesting data that came out of the surveys 2 weeks
ago when greek citizens are asked about their booklet is to accept more austerity measures more sacrifice to send the euro. it is a major difference compared to the beginning of the year when there's report of mr. tsipras was very high. i think the greek it is still a possibility to accept to suffer more austerity measures imposed by creditors and might end up with a positive outcome. jonathan: despite the surveys, i find them quite a fusing for was survey tell me they do not want austerity and another tell me they want to remain in euro and a third they do not want a referendum to decide between the 2. how do you break that deadline -- deadlock? vincent juvyns: coparent to the
beginning of the year when it was a clear-cut no i do say that an open window for at least there seems to be more openness then they were before. the fact you mentioned the conclusion you can draw from that are quite a mixed is a breakthrough compared to the beginning of the year into the question, do you want to send the eurozone? there is a clear answer of, yes. and a measure which agrees has to -- greece has to pick or elsewhere and we have a lot of success. when you look at spain, for example, a good example, we see the unemployment remains high. we had a growth figure last week and they grew by 0.9%. this show to the greek people that reform pays over time. spain, italy portugal are all
examples of that. sometimes painful measures in the short-term can have effects in the long-term. i think on a certain level, the retirement age or median tax rate we can improve a lot in agrees. we have not budge in a higher measure in greece at the moment. with a higher retirement age at the moment. is it such an important measure to take? i do not think so. the greek government should and could implement. i do see out of these surveys, a certain rapport for the measure. jonathan: you will stay with us. coming up up on our show countdown to "the pulse," three days away to the election. and china worsening. will they get below the key 7% target rate?

our reporter joins us with more. talk about the potential coalition again. is this common as a surprise to you? reporter: not at all. we had a nick clegg of this weekend talk about the eu referendum would not be a real red line. coalition talks at this stage until we see the results are very unpredictable and it is really too soon to say what we might the. jonathan: labour has been adamant they will now form a formal coalition with the smp. is that a problem? svenja o'donnell: not really. labour does not need a formal coalition. they already said they would back labour. the problem will calm at the later stage where if you have
minority government voted in by the smp if they yard to negotiate with a party that will be the third-largest a you have sticking part. the snp might be and they can stand up. jonathan: things are getting crazy. when this came across twitter come i asked if it was a joke. craps with the show the picture again. are things -- and perhaps we can show the picture again. how has this been taken? svenja o'donnell: i thought i had seen it all. i expect to wake up tomorrow is the nick clegg tech towing the
manifesto on his chest. -- cap towing -- tattooing on his chest. [indiscernible] jonathan: will it have influence on how you vote? svenja o'donnell: i hope not. perhaps a little bit more profound. it has dominated the newspapers. jonathan: too smart for that. svenja o'donnell. vincent juvyns global strategists is still with us. you are listening to some of the stuff about the election. are you paying much attention to the election at the moment? vincent juvyns: nobody it is not on the front page of every newspaper. you see more on the backside of the newspapers especially the main ones. greece is the biggest concern
for european at the moment. what happens in the u.k., the uk's a big trade partner for europe and a growth engine. really the u.k. from a growth prospect against -- [indiscernible] bring back u.k. on the sustainable growth. still a lot of work to do. we do hope that we do not end up -- there's a lot of work to do. we would like to see improvement there and the u.k. and that is definitely a point of concern at the moment. nothing major for europe at the moment. jonathan: the big surprise has
been the lack off market reaction. foreign investors buying a record amount of u.k. guilds last month. people do not seem to be worried. looking forward, should there be concern about sterling denominations? vincent juvyns: well, at the moment if you look at positioning, we are under waiting sterling assets into the u.k. market. the uncertainty around the election will generate volatility and something we would like to take at this stage. we have higher conviction for other markets at the moment. a zero sum game. we have to put money. we at j.p. morgan, we are short on the sterling and short generally speaking. jonathan: what would make you go
over weight change your mind? vincent juvyns: i would say a clear majority and reducing the difficulty going forward. and also reducing the volatility. but i guess conservatives it is not a political opinion. a clear majority to be able to come to a reform. "reform" is the magical world. -- magical word. to be sure that what we see in the global economy in the u.k., europe is sustainable and blossoms at some point. jonathan: vincent juvyns thank you for joining us. coming up on the show, the slowdown continues. will china ms. of the growth
