2:34 am
instructive. interesting to see what the central bank is saying right now. let into that brexit story, it is dominating the agenda here. no deal yet. were metas proposals with his -- david cameron's proposals were met with resistance. let's get to brussels where ryan chilcote is standing by. ryan, sleep deprivation probably something of a story overnight. let's talk about why these folks are bothered. there are a few sticking points that remain, the british demand that benefits for eu migrants working in the u k be incurred and specifically how long it would take for eu migrants working in the u.k. to
2:35 am
be eligible for british benefits. remember in the draft agreement pulled outesident that it was going to be a periodear waiting e before they vested in those benefits. migrants we need to wait for seven years but actually we might want three-year extensions in addition to that. that caused eastern european countries -- that caught eastern european countries off guard. they were very negative in general. they suggested five, the talks went on. there is also an argument between the french on the one hand and the brits on the other about mitchell formalization -- about financial formalization. non-euro using banks within the
2:36 am
european union. the belgians and the french said i've had enough. this deal needs to spell out it would be the final agreement. what they want to do is preclude a referendum in any of the other 28 countries. british prime minister was hoping to get home by noon. that looks unlikely good the english brexit has turned into a belgian brunch. he wants to get the deal he wants as opposed to any deal. he will stay as long as he needs to get it. guy: the war of attrition seems to be on. thecan stay in brussels longest. ryan, thank you very much indeed. we are going to bring in new the live shot. there good start fairly soon. maybe a little later. later.arr will be here he is the b ae chairman -- ba chairman.b ae system
2:37 am
let's talk more about the story and the market implications. -- good morning. very nice to see you. i am not going to get to the politics. how much is the market priced in for the risk of this story? how much of a problem is a going to be for assets such as sterling and u.k. equities? >> it is hard to believe price in such uncertainties. such political risks. today, more action in sterling. i would argue that if you have more uncertainty, there is more to come. the way we are looking at the u.k. is you have the commodity witness story. on the other side, dollars which are hardly -- which are hard to
2:38 am
price in. in larger premium over the next few months. i think there is more downside to come in sterling as we head those are two the weekend in terms of negotiation. guy: the pricing looks like this and the pricing market looks at this. -- we look at the u.k. economy because the markets have overlaid the brexit. probably more aggressively than appearing on the surface. thushka: it is hard to see what is priced in. it is such a big unknown. for example the market priced in cuts are later this year are not infeasible if you go down the road of questioning the uk's position. at the states, we are cautious on feeding market pricing. test taking a very
2:39 am
strong view of something that could go against you very quickly. guy: their concern is you get a domino effect. if the u.k. were to leave, you start to ripple affect around europe. to any of the other curves around europe that would suggest that is a reality? thushka: i think there is less risk affect priced in. focus.ll be a big france would be a particular area you would expect weakness. on the other hand, we have the ecb playing a very strong hand, pushing yields lower. starting the way we are pricing in the european curve. i see little risk in those markets. guy: think you very much. we'll talk valuation and what is happening with central banks

2:46 am
that trading business. the boss of easyjet, she mostly penned in one of the sunday papers. how much you pay for your holiday depends on how much influence britain has in europe. would you agree? friedrich: i think in one of the areas is a question of how does a pound actually compared to the euro? if it been down, then definitely compared to the euro, the holiday would be more expensive. as getting such deals done between airports, all of these things, with the friction go up and running a business? friedrich: the risk is there. the proof is in the pudding.
2:47 am
my personal view on this is as a european, many industries and the tourism industry would risk to be a little bit under pressure with the brexit if it happens. i hope that they are convincing arguments that britain stays. as a european but i also know when you have feelings and emotions, arguments are difficult. guy: that is an interesting point. what about singing that's what about schengen -- what about schengen. think we have the refugee situation right now. therefore, you know, you see a lot of fences being put up. i think this is the wrong direction. trading free travel and

what do we need to know? what is behind this mess. hans: the cfo says it has to do with some asian life insurance. that is their line. we saw net income come in lower than expected. at $160 million less than expected. %. is down 2.5 so often we talk about their ability to their make a profit in this low interest rate environment -- with the added side of what is happening at pimco. told manus cranny the outflow is slowing down, but going in the right direction. they are in line with the industry's standards. they are coming in at 7:30, but 0.e estimate was 7:4
3:05 am
cranny was pushing the cfo on that question. guy: what is the deal with negative rates in this business? we live in a world with negative rates now. hans: nothing explicit have they said about that thus far. we will see if this will be blamed on what is happening with goodwill in asia. you have heard and a lot of concern on that point on the german banking regulators. every time i go to frankfurt, they are very concerned, not just about asset bubbles, by about the health of banks an insurance companies as they try to keep their. balance sheets in order. we will see whether or not alilance will be dragged into this. this could create more challenging times ahead for the

entire insurance agency. guy: thank you, hans. our ma keep the focus on rkets. beat 99%l equity fund of peers. turmoil,of the recent douglas says he has no immediate plans to buy shares. he does not say that he thinks china is going to crash. his biggest issue right now is a theseions of this k -- of key stocks. do you agree with that? >> yes, i agree with that. we also think global growth is fine and the u.s. economy is not very close to recession, but valuations are the main factor keeping us in a low risk type environment. i would say, they are valued in
3:07 am
credit markets. being selective within high yields is the key thing. we like european and u.s. high-yield credit markets. environment,growth credits should perform as long as the u.s. interest is low. with the ecb more focused on the credit channel, the negative side effects of cutting rates below zero are becoming more apparent. we expect them to move toward the credit channel, which would be supported. guy: the earnings season. if we are going to improve valuations, you have to get the top line moving. you have to do something with the margin story and you have to get the bottom line moving. we are not there. >> exactly, q4 was a big disappointment. we had sales growth at the worst levels since 2009.
3:08 am
that comes back to valuations. we need to see a turnaround in sales growth. guy: this is interesting. people are positioning themselves for a bounce to a certain extent. take the view of concern surrounding valuations, that will happen overnight. >> it feels like a much more range bound market. we don't have the fundamentals pushing. the parts of the u.s., where we are positive, a lot of that is in the price already. for us to become more positive you need to see a much more clear picture on china, much more transparency there. it is tough to see that in the near term. that is why we are keeping to a low risk range bound -- guy: is this just valuations? >> you need the macro picture.
3:09 am
arnings, ase you point out. guy: are there any areas of the market that are beaten up? >> i agree with that. the recent move as you mentioned, is rotation away from health care. we think the opportunity is there in the near term. the other is tech. we have seen weakness. that is very well-positioned already and that is why we see weakness. we are close to the point where there is value there that will be attractive. guy: a lot of people sit in the chair you are sitting in. definitelys have been falling. i think it is very hard to focus on the stock-bond relationship.
3:10 am
markets no longer reflect fundamentals. it is much more of a liquidity premium thana macro premium. we started the year expecting yields higher. we had to bring out forecast lower. nominal growth environment, it is very hard. guy: i think you are ok on that one. stay with you. we are going to be talking next about china. the central banks there are hiking reserve ratios. some have been lending out money a little bit too quickly. details from beijing, next. ♪

3:15 am
let's get to our beijing chief, nick. a great story, nick. how should we interpret what they are saying? all saw that big spike in credit at the beginning of the week. nick: there is the landing data from january that was up the charts. it showed a huge ramping up in banks. primarily, that lending was done by smaller banks. we learned today is the pboc has fired a warning shot across the bow of those smaller banks. it has been encouraging banks to lend, but to the smaller banks it is saying, you went a bit overboard. we are going to require you to hold more depositor assets in cash to rain in some of that lending after those boisterous january numbers. guy: people are trying to figure out what is going on inside the pboc right now. walk us through the priorities
3:16 am
of how the credit story is interacting with the economic story. nick: i mean, they have a very daunting task to be sure. on the one hand, they want to quiddity, what they don't want to stifle growth. they want to spur further growth. at the same time, the government is confronted with a this debt overhang. a huge amount of debt has built up. they are trying to control these two contradictory priorities. what you can see is a push away from big gun stimulus measures like interest rate cuts. they will lower the cost of banks lending to each other and they will send warnings like this to regional banks. make smaller moves that do less to shake people's confidence
3:17 am
about the direction of the economy./ guy: thank you very much, indeed. let's bring back in jpmorgan global strategist. you said earlier in the program that you are not concerned about china. it is a very difficult balancing act for the chinese authorities to manage at the moment. you wonder what is going on inside the pboc. they are having to deal with some very difficult debt issues. credit stories are having to be finally balanced. it is a difficult task. >> we are concerned about china, especially in terms of their communication. the one focal point we are looking at now. obviously, the currency is fonccus.sly in we are focusing on the march budget. there has been a prioritization of recognizing loan losses. the budget will give us the best signal of how the government is
3:18 am
going to deal with the sort of the low performing assets. i think that is where the market is focused. yes, we're going to take on more of the nonperforming loans. that would be a good sign in terms of reforms. guy: what is your read on that? >> we think this year we will see more reforms from the government. essentially, after their december statement where they prioritized the capacity within the commodity markets, the capacity within certain parts of the banking sector,. that was a big shift some of thato see action and we think we will see some of that in the march budget, but it is not a trigger to get long risk assets. we need to see the actual fruition of the policy. guy: you talk about being near the peak dollar stories. how much easier is it going to be for countries like china as we work our way through this
3:19 am
dollar rollover, test some people are calling it -- as .ome people are calling it >> it is depending on what is driving the dollar weaker. risk of inflation is at risk for the global economy. other economies that are doing better like the euro area can see that rate differential moving. guy: we need the right kind of dollar rollover. reporter: we need the right kind. reporter: which one do you think it is going to be? reporter: it is very hard to call. actions from the ecb will support european assets. camp where it will
3:20 am
be a positive story, but there are many steps before we get there. guy: how much a pricing in right now? >> we have between two and three. that is much more than the market is pricing. was very clear that financial conditions is doing the work for them. when that happens, do you think the markets are already there -- you think the ripple effect is already understood? >> i don't think so. if the fed gets their balancing act right and they are conscious willobal conditions, that be positive for risk assets. it is a very fine balancing act. that is the dilemma that yellen faces. up to now, she has done a regional job keeping that balance. guy: the job gets harder from here it looks like.
3:21 am
>> the does get a lot harder and her speech is going forward will be -- she has to strike that balance. the ecb has the same problem. in their minutes yesterday they said, we can't sound gloomy about the economy. central things globally have a tough task ahead of them. guy: the market surprising there ir ability. thank you for your time howext, we take a look at crude prices are being affected. ♪

currency, negative rates can be a good tool for you. for example, for denmark and for switzerland, the survey gave the danish central bank a 90% approval rating for their negative rate policy. if you are a big central-bank trying to manage reserve currency, you may end up just starting a currency war with your trading partners. guy: what does this mean? if we extend this, can we extrapolate this into a settlement of which central banks are going to go further than others? the outcome of the survey was that the economists assumed that the bank of japan cb are going to have to pursue negative rate policies well into 2018. ont has a knock on effect smaller central banks that surround them. there could be a good bit of skepticism right now as to

position as a country in the context of world security strongly. guy: those all sound like very admirable things, but it is very easy to say we want to stop migration and we want to stop brussels interfering in our day to day operations. very easytwo arguments to make that appeal to a lot of people who are very ticked off about what is happening here on those two fronts. do we need to make the arguments more emotional? the boss of easyjet said the holidays will be more expensive. >> there are things people can connect with easily and i think that was a good example, but for business, it has to make the logical argument, the business argument. that is where does most credible. the emotional piece that goes with that, if we want to participate in a country which is part of a growing economic story, if we want to have people who influence that and therefore, provide a better life and a better future for

ourselves and our children, staying in europe, and improved europe, is from a business point of view, the place to be. guy: one of the other arguments that i am hearing is this idea that the u.k. needs to stay in and europe needs the u.k. because of the defense argument. the defense argument is one that needs to be pushed forward and develop further. we have nato, but still need to be part of the eu. what are your thoughts on that? >> being part of europe is much more than an economic story. we have strong defense relationships with europe. can commitether, we to schemes and developments and very important practical things that make the defense argument a better argument. we also have to recognize that our security is much more than political security. the world of cyber security is one thing we are all under threat for.

guy: does the general public find that easier to understand? a black jet flying across our skeis from russia, that is something we all understand. >> a together group is a stronger group to be in, in an increasingly dangerous world. we also have to respect that if we were to leave europe, there is a possibility that the scottish discussion may reemerge. and of scotland were two separate from the rest of the united kingdom, that would put our submarine position at risk by the possible rejection of scottishs from waters and that would reduce our position in the world, nato, and the security council. this is not something we can ignore. there is a potential domino
3:46 am
effect that would weaken our position in europe and the world and our strength as a peacekeeper as a result of that. guy: what message will you sent to the politicians, who are at this point in time apparently, undecided on which way they are going to lean? to you worry that they are playing politics with such a big issue? clearly, this is a big political issue. it seems very difficult to understand where some of the key players stand. >> politics are part of this but at the heart of this, it is where is the united kingdom going to be in the next decade and beyond? is, if we get a stronger position, we can have a stronger economy, have better security, and create a platform for our generation and the next generation for growth in the

world market. i think that is the place we should be. it is an important decision we all need to make and it needs to be an improved europe, which i think britain can contribute to in a very powerful way. guy: you think the voice is stronger from british business or european business? britain has a current account deficit. we need foreign money to flow into this economy. do you think the foreign business seems to be voicing more loudly than british business? >> i think we have heard those stories. it is very clear that people do regard britain as part of europe, as a very important bridge and that attraction therefore, for inward investment. en, is anhat bridge op encouragement for others to invest in us. we heard the story and i think we can hear from europeans generally, there is a real desire for britain to be part of

this community. there is a recognition that we can be a force for good. we are a constructive advocate for change. we can help everybody be more competitive in a more competitive world. and on your think, h heart, do you think anything really changes? it is so finally balanced that it is hard to make a case either way. >> i have said clearly, i don't think exit is a catastrophe -- i don't think brexit is a catastrophe. i don't think remaining in europe is a permanent passport to prosperity. but only at the margin. i am trying to communicate this to people. -- thatt on the side of

in all seriousness, how much is the market paying attention to this thing? richard: up until now, there has been very little bexit premium primed into u.k. stocks, u.k. bonds, and even into the pound. but have seen elln elevated volatility in the currency. guy: there is no way we are going to get rate cuts. there is no way. you will see maybe, some of that cut in brexit. richard: there was just a massive repricing in the u.s., i would argue very little. those differentials are what has driven the pound. you look at the ftse 100 and it is actually outperforming. it does not look like there is or themium for yields
