the tokyo stock exchange where it is trading above 18,000. it is trajectory down as we continue to watch this route $5tinue that has wiped away trillion for investors area commodities are continuing the decline. closing at the lowest level since 1999. us.et tracking this for it is a doozy out there today. : that is the one we look at normally. already. we're seeing a little bit of a pickup in early sessions. hopefully we will get that graph of sand that we are seeing a bit of a game -- a gain coming through in the early session. .ou have these over supplies
let's look at some of the other commodities. copper at 2009 lows. this is regarded as one of the less accrued prices of i .3 of 1% in early trade. a little bit of a redound -- rebound. then copper at 2009 lows. this is the benchmark for commodities because it is one of those widely used metals. we have that at 2009 lows. base metals heavily sold off. zinc was down 3.4%. aluminum was done by 1.8 percent and iron are continuing the slide holding about 53 u.s. dollars a ton. selloff across the commodities board. even the gold price, the safe haven was down by point five of 1%. this will fit some of the prices of the australian stocks that are opening up.

with this route is reflecting his investor concern about global growth, right? when you look at the fundamentals around the globe, the u.s., china. do you see that it is warranted? is mostly the it concern about the chinese economic slowdown. i think all this demand from china in the past three years, we have seen a clear slow down now from everything in the front car to commodities. they are worried about the chinese slowdown and in addition, the policymakers' ability to arrest the slow down and to be used the economy of china's of people are still getting nervous whether the chinese government can boost the economy as in the past. that is really the most important question facing investors these days. mythicalvestors had a
perception of the pboc and china being able to step into provider floor. we saw shanghai composite drop and keep on going. no policymakers stepped up. china did not do anything about this market rout. do you think the global market rout will continue? can china be the only circuit breaker here? down -- think this all there isdown in china, recovery. the u.s. economy is still recovering and the fed is debating whether the u.s. should tighten monetary policy by hiking interest rates. the u.s. economy is important and also seems to be performing much better. thea, the issue is policymakers in china still are not so worried about the
economic slowdown. that is something also very worrisome. postponede ebsa has cutting the reserve and are not cutting interest rates, even though the economy is slowing down, there is bigger turmoil in the stock market. they're thinking where going to implement the fiscal stimulus policy. we can wait. the investors cannot wait. i see the bigger gap and disconnect there. there is a disconnect. the world is waiting for china to do something with its 3.9 trillion dollars are here. cutcut, interest rate silenced. how much silence can this go on? do you think china at some point this week, next week, couple days, maybe the weekend might
have to step in? guest: definitely. as i mentioned even despite the slowdown, despite the weakness of the market, pboc has not yet cut interest rates in the pasture month. developmentsrket will force the pboc to act. i do see some high probability this weekend and because otherwise justify postponing this policy response and waiting for my it is quite dangerous and risky. the chinese reserves as you point out in the beginning of the year is three point 9 trillion but now it is over 3.6 trillion. 300 billion dollars less. that is a sign that the usa is
putting money away from china. i think including the latest market turmoil will put pressure on chinese policymakers to act quickly. i do see some possibility of this weekend, china will do something. angie: that is a prediction right there. we will leave it there. predicting pboc moves this weekend before it is too late. the story asemain asia reacts to the meltdown. these are live pictures we're showing you from tokyo stock exchange where the global rout is going on. markets are sliding fast over 10 minutes in. nikki to 25 right now, 2.7% down. we have got the topics trading in correction territory. if you take a look across the order as well what you are seeing on the nikkei tune -- nikkei to toy five is a reflection of what we are seeing

realizenow people chinese investment has slowed down very severely. that is the one major reason behind this global concern. the also realized government has started a fiscal program. monetary policy was the devaluation of the yuan to get into the fdr basket. it triggered global route. who expected it really area and the one to started the fiscal program but to two weeks ago they started announcing bond issuance by the policy banks [indiscernible]
meant --ts announcement will take one or two months great we are seeing a gap. that think the people see currents in action are pointing out [indiscernible] see --ument from bpo pboc is after four times rate cuts, pboc maintain the position that liquidity is a pretty sufficient in the chinese domestic market so they do not need to rush to rescue the economy. they are waiting for fiscal .olicy to take a role we are seeing the gaps because fiscal policy is still on the planning side that they just announced this money. allowing banks to lend to local
government. we have not seen the money going to the real economy. that is the issue right now. that remains an issue, one way have talked about for a long time. take a look at japanese markets. correctionentered territory yesterday. even shinzo abe said this goal over two years is in jeopardy because of china. it is almost -- it is that china is exporting a monetary policy volatility. two other central bankers as well. the chinese market has been important for many multinational companies. the slowdown will hurt japanese exports.
