francine: selling sterling. continuing to punish japan. a asian markets rebound along with commodities. breaks theancellor three-day in silence and says stay calm but expected volatility. david cameron speaks at later today. and, what is legal, what is possible, and what is desirable. can merkel hold the center and for a hasty divorce.
we need to spend some time on the banks. berkeley, rbs was halted because they fell from 11% to 13 percent. david on put it very simply, what brexit will do is put the spotlight on an already weak dollar. tom: to me it is the idea that 45 minutes ago we were doing what we thought was a fairly stable show in the deterioration of the banks went into debt. it was remarkable. you mentioned the united kingdom tenure going under what was it 10% -- 1%? francine: yes. i have a great chart showing up. this is on brexit. whether there is uncertainty about the world economy.
first let's get straight to the bloomberg press reviews. here's taylor. taylor: british prime minister even cameron addresses parliament today. he says he will leave office in october following the u.k. vote to leave the union. he is leaving details of the british exit to his successor. and boris johnson says consequences are wildly overdone and is being over it ignored. is trying tor reach financial markets in the wake of the brexit vote. he says plans are in place to shore up the economy before the vote. osborne stands by his warning that says the u.k. is an eight position to confront. of coming to the rescue banks. the italian bank has 44 million dollars of capital to put it to some of the banks. a selloff of monetary and
lenders already heard over concerns over bad that lines. and the brexit vote has led to widespread turmoil in the labour party. jeremy corbyn's senior team, seven of them, have quit. the revolt was brought about by corbyn's decision to fire hillary. -- to fireized hillary ben. they criticized him. and prime minister marino rajoy consolidated his appointment in the general election. it surprised the poster with an increasing parliament. it was a present the voters backed away at the last moment. global news 24 hours a day powered by more than 26 hundred journalists, analysts and more than 120 countries. i am taylor >>. this is bloomberg. tom: thank you for all of your comments about the way we are doing our data checks. data check.assic
i know francine really wants to bring it up-to-day. and i walked in the door in washington, lower yields. euro is weaker. oil holding up pretty well. that is the correct banner. by brexit what you need to know. on to the next screen. this is pretty did. 24 point 82. i think that would be a 26 or 27 right now. sterling boyd still trying to find a bid. we have ¥101. francine, what do you have? francine: still trying to figure out the most important snapshot. overall, down 1.8%. i want to show you going because it seems to be rising. . want to show you the banks this is one of the wake spots. the banks were hammered on friday. ugliest down.
you have a lot of the periphery as well. tom: think of the litmus paper of exit trend and date surging remain before the historic moment of a referendum. this is euros sterling. i left where we were. that yellow curved line is sort of before the remain enthusiasm as a euros sterling broke down. strong sterling, weaker yen. then the complete reversal. aviation's.rd that is my thermometer for chancellor osborne and prime minister cameron. francine: i am sure glad we heard from george osborne. he said, i am still here. at least different from him. this is what i chose for my board. i was going to look at currencies but then i decided to go for u.k. tenure yields. u.k.,n see the purple german and blue, and white is japan. yields below 1%
for the first time ever. let's get back to some of the corporate news. british banks being hit hard by exit. the lyrics michael moore is with us. and the head of global and medical smith. with asset management. thank you. michael, i will start with you. it is unfair for the banks to take such a hit. we are worried about brexit? does it have to do with interest rates remaining lower for longer or does it have to do with the recession? >> it is a little of all of the above. they are getting hit on the revenue side. bringing down the revenue estimates both for the lending side as you have rates possibly getting lower for longer and that on the investment, banking, and training side with the turmoil being called off. with fewer ipos. so it is all that and then on top of that, the potential cost for having to restructure set up more things on the continent.
francine: we're looking at some of the trends today. barclays, most of the banks. they lost half of their value. is there anything they need to do either verbally or restructuring that would make their shareholders feel more at ease about what is going on? >> i am not sure there is a whole lot they can say because a lot of it is out of their control. , some of thenomy broader forces here. there is not too much they can't say. they have kind of been saying, we will be patient. not rush to any actions. see how things play out. there is not a lot they can say. tom: michael, i look at the bloomberg and look at book values. as you know, you can do anything you all at the calculation of bayou. and matters to banks. what is our experience of lower and lower and equity prices and eight book value under 30%. 20 some percent. 23% for a
struggling credit. when does somebody say ouch? >> i think they are already saying ouch. these are historically low book to value ratios and so i think, you know, one of the main issues you have with that is if there a -- if there does become capital concern, if there is a need for more capital, it becomes very tough to raise capital at those valuations. unicredit plunging down because of michael moore's comments down to new lows. this is really something. i look and i see you are with j.p. morgan and you have a resurgence on how you can badmouth the banks but this is getting pretty ugly. what is the government solution to assist banks? >> the banks need access to capital. moreng stock prices mean
expensive. people believe they are going to lose capital and trying to raise capital. gets more expensive. that mitigates against the interests of shareholders. the hope is the government will be able to do something. we have a special purpose there. so far, i think it is not big enough to address problems in the italian banking sector. thecine: we understand group saying italy is injecting $44 billion bank injection after brexit. it is a little but soon, isn't it much more to talk about brexit? is this just an excuse overall? we know the banks will be much more in focus. you cannot blame brexit two days afterwards. banking system has been looking at measures for months now. if we look back at the inherent problems there, yes, there are a lot of nonperforming loans on their balance sheets.
pathologically recognized and quantified. the issue that faces the market is a buzz market. so the gap needs to be bridged and that is why we need some injections. francine: i know you can't talk about banks i won asked about banks but we are looking at currencies and whether they can make money at currencies. if there's too much too much volatility there will make your job so much faster. currencye more trading. more volume, more revenue but it equally needs more certainty and less act of trading itself. so although we have seen large currency moves, the actual volumes are much lower the end expected. people are staying on the sidelines. and so at the moment at least, it is not leading much. is a reflection of uncertainty which is necessarily bad for banks.
tom: in washington, we are in the shadow a the andrew mellon museum. in jim millen had to deal with combinations in the late 1930's as secretary of the treasury. when do we begin to see the combination, when do we begin to see forced mergers and acquisitions? government effort to bring banks together? are we near that or do set wait for another month? >> the long-term in europe is to increase. if we come back to take a case in point, the voting structure has been reformed by the government specifically with the intention of facilitating mergers between those entities. if you think longer-term, the intention is to reduce reliance of funding for banks. to this intermediate banks if you like. the intention is to have a europe of banking sector less
important. the issue is timetable because i think the volatility around brexit and the move down in quite book value means the contract was going up the whole time. i do think that what you are saying at the moment as an initial reaction to what happened and markets are not having fundamentals. this vision markdowns taken place of the next 3-6 months, fundamentals will reemerge. tom: thank you. assets manager with j.p. morgan. we will continue. coming up from washington, i'm here with michael mckee. joining us will be alan greenspan, the former chairman of the federal reserve in a conversation, a most timely position with madeleine albright, the nation's former secretary of state. from washington and london, bloomberg surveillance. ♪
♪ are continuing to look at the implications of britain deciding to leave the eu. we are in washington dc with important interviews today. let's now had two downing streets where in a edwards is standing by. the cabinet meeting started about half an hour ago. what are we expecting to come out of the meeting? anna: thank you. in the last half-hour, the meeting started. we saw the members of david cameron's cabinet arriving in the door the high me. this is number 10 downing street, of course. the residents of the prime minister. have you got a plan? are you going to stand for the leadership? the extent of the unknown around
the government at this time. one of the key questions, the fate of george osborne. he spoke earlier on today and said we find out a little bit more about his plan, personal plan, within the dates and ahead. we'll see what comes of that. we know we'll hear from david cameron mid afternoon london time. tom: anna, to me what is most fascinating is what we call in america lame duck. president obama is a lame duck president on his final victory lap after two terms and eight years. tell me about the prime minister. already said he is going to go. he said that on friday. he said he would be gone by october the because that is when we get a pretty conference. he is going to leave all the negotiating to the person who takes over after him. there is a debate going on here over who that will be.
while brussels and voices within europe continued to ask for a plan from the british or they ask for the british to trigger our article 50 to start the process of leaving the european union, it is hard to see how that will happen a times in one we do not have a leader in place, at least not a prominent fixture in place at the top of government. so jeremy corbyn on the labor side under increasing pressure to resign his post as well. everywhere you look right now, we see political vacuums will stop francine: thank you so much. anna edwards there in front of number 10 downing street. direction the pound seems to be heading. which is down. let us get the board up. i think it is at 133. greg's i think the pressure is downwards for sure. i think a move to 115 is unlikely at this time partly because you have to look at the currency. the $. ?ill the u.s. like it so much
with the u.s. rates is still very low although the fed is hiking rates. i think for it to go down towards 115 you really do need the u.s. aside to be much more favorable. most pension to research at no. and i quote, divorce is quicker then remarriage. really? tell me how the divorce and remarriage we will see here works? now that the baby is smarter. [laughter] you have to invoke article 50. once you do that, it takes two years for u.k. to leave the eu. but the process to renegotiate all the new trade agreements within the various countries our most likely take for five years.
so the divorce as two years, the remarriage is five years, and that creates this high time of uncertainty where once the u.k. leaves the year you then have a three-year. of uncertainty about what the new trade agreements are which is a thing really weighing on the market as a whole. tom: and i don't want to give you the drama of sterling being like the bank if not but nevertheless, british pound in search of a bid this morning. we will continue with this important monday for the united kingdom. part of that in the commodities markets. be joined by the energy administration. from london and washington, this is bloomberg surveillance.

this in about 25 different ways. first of all, why does he choose an opinion piece rather than addressing the nation in a more normal weight? what i can ask you if is a british recession unavoidable? >> i think it is unavoidable. there will likely be back to back negative quarters, which is the technical definition of a recession. there will be in effect on housing prices -- all of this a recession. it is very likely we see a recession. tom: we have been moving around on brexit on the themes of politics, investment, economics. what about america? inree joins me
