7:03 pm
adp report. how that will be reflected in numbers tomorrow. -- a happy day and friday not a happy friday in asia, either. let's see how things are playing out in new zealand. we're down about one third of 1% on the nzx 50. the kiwi, .7275. we do see these underperforming the complex. the aussie, also lower overnight, weighed by the 2% drop in iron ore. we see a drop in the wti prices. $45.35 a barrel right now. japan, futures in the red. lookingown 20 points, to see and 80% drop at the open after we saw that fallout of 0.4% on the nikkei 225. dollar-yen, $113.12.
7:04 pm
looks like this can be continuing negative sentiment, this drought in bonds and stocks. week out offtened france. betty: that triggered it. markets were looking for some reason to start a selloff. that triggered over here, or 'dther soon amin -- tsunami over here. as we mentioned, long-term treasuries selling off. breaking out in germany and france. ramy inocencio has more on the fallout. >> you talk about the 50 day moving average, key for the s&p. but this is the breach we saw on the dow industrials. -- excuse me, the nasdaq. the dow, we are 200 points away from reaching that. not close, but you can see the downward trend headed toward
7:05 pm
that direction. we can imagine what happens if we reach that. breach was thee first in seven weeks. we have to talk about treasuries in the u.s.. those of been on the move, up by four basis points to 2.73%. that had been higher when it spiked up to seven basis points. that is just shy of 2.42%. it has crossed-- its 50 day, 100 day, 200 day moving average. they are saying we have only just begun, and the potential to see something even toward a 3% by the end of this year. he is calling that a definitive bear market, if we get to that number. also, taking a look at the 30 day treasury, hop into the bloomberg terminal. we do not look at the 30 year too much.
7:06 pm
andtalking about dma's breaching that, we have already breached the blue line. we're just -- we are just about to breach the blue line, the 200 day moving average. and the green line, the 100 day dma. open interest in september, long bond futures are falling on the order of 3.7 million dollars. that indicates the bulls are starting to liquidate. the takeaway, we could see these treasury yields go further. maybe even to 3%. yvonne: some liquidation in the tech spaces. tech stocks among the big laggards again. ramy: we saw the fall on the nasdaq. and that technology shares down, also. take a look at what is happening, your today. it looks like a rosier picture.
7:07 pm
looking up to june 9, the nasdaq had already increased i about 18%. if you are an investor, you're probably about -- very happy. they are taking some of their chips off the table. you really can't blame them. who wouldn't like 18%? some are saying, maybe it is too good to be true. apple, microsoft, facebook, intel, were the biggest weights on the nasdaq. microsoft cutting thousands of jobs overseas. intel settling a lawsuit about using the mcafee security name. we are also gearing toward another lawsuit. apple in focus, but also to suem, saying it wants apple for patent infringement on its iphone. on iphone limited and imports into the u.s. can you imagine if that was stopped in the u.s.? they are trying to do that.
7:08 pm
even see the reaction with apple shares, not doing too bad in after hours, but it'd been down 0.2%. years, we haveng been talking about tesla over the past three days because it came in at 22,000 shipments in terms of second quarter. that was less than 25,000 for the second quarter. this is a market cap. ever since may come of the white line, is tesla, the yellow line is gm. back in late may it crossed the market cap of general motors and was the king in terms of the automakers. in the past day, this has lost its crown. -- $8.7 billion lost to gm. yvonne: first word news with

yvonne: this is "daybreak asia," i am yvonne man in hong kong. betty: i am betty liu in new york. leaders at the g20 in hamburg. changing alliances, talks on protectionism. there is violence on the streets. matt miller has the latest. matt: standing here in hamburg meeting.0 there are protests on the streets, thousands and thousands being pushed back by police with water cannons. however, all eyes are on the meeting between the biggest leaders, including u.s. president donald trump and russian president vladimir putin. we will be looking to see what comes out of that meeting. other important bilateral's will
7:14 pm
happen, including president trump meeting with chinese president xi and trying to diffuse the situation in north korea. president erdogan is here and wants to speak at his own demonstrations on the sidelines of the g20 summit. however, germany has forbidden him from doing that. he says if germany holds them back from that, they will be committing suicide. the europeanime, parliament has agreed to freeze the application of turkey to the e.u. there are a lot of geopolitical tensions simmering here as this group tries to work together to changeings like climate and to promote trade and deal with immigration. so many issues to deal with as -- angelalds the g20 merkel plans to push forward the german agenda and the european agenda. matt miller, bloomberg, hamburg. yvonne: to talk more about this is max bergman, senior fellow.
7:15 pm
a former state department senior adviser. great to have you here on the program. we talk about the protests and what happened at g7. willo you think g20 welcome a president trump? will it be 19 versus the one? beenthe welcome has not warm, with the mass protests in hamburg. i think a lot of the leaders are going to try to make nice with president trump. everyone is waiting for his meeting with vladimir putin, and to see what comes out of that. that has everyone on the edge of their seat. what, ifno one knows anything will come out of that. willexpected that not much happen, it will be their first initial meeting, they will talk about various issues, the president says he is going in with no agenda. but we do not really know if there is something more, if
7:16 pm
there will be a deal that comes out of that. betty: i am not trying to make light of this, but these are two big egos meeting tomorrow. who will own who, do you think? max: putin is going to own a president trump. putin is a seasoned, veteran president, who has been around the block a long time, a former kgb official. he prepares for these meetings extensively, and he will have an agenda. the fact that president trump is going without an agenda means they will talk about the issues president putin wants to talk about. that will be about lifting sanctions, may some agreement or deal about syria. the question is whether trump bites on those offers. i think it could have a seismic impact on the u.s.-european relationship. betty: i believe the tillerson
7:17 pm
will also be at this meeting, they will have two translators. it is a big deal for the white house. here in the u.s. it will be as closely watched as the comey hearings. it is made for television. if you think putin will own a, how can trump deflect that? kenny fight back? max: the russians do not offer the united states very much right now. there is nothing to make a deal about. situation with a normal american administration, this would be a very confrontational conversation, similar to the one president obama had with putin over the putinew years, where would be confronted about interference, not just in the u.s. election, but the french and dutch election. and some of their actions in syria and the ukraine.
7:18 pm
the fact that is not going to come up is rather troubling. one thing about the roster of who is attending, is it is really surprising the national security advisor, h.r. mcmaster, who will be there, is not going to be in the meeting. instead, the person with the most government experience on the u.s. side, not the president , but the translator, is really troubling. yvonne: a lot of this could be overshadowed by what is going on in pyongyang an issue of north korea. there is a consensus or opinion, view of the world, the world should accept north korea has nuclear weapons than to stop them from proliferating. do think that is a feasible approach at the moment? max: in some ways, the recent test of an icbm changes everything.
7:19 pm
on the other hand, a changes nothing. it is a matter of how far the trump administration is willing to go. the u.s. has not implemented sanctions with iran. it introduced secondary sanctions, which could have an impact on secondary chinese companies. congress may step up and do what it did on iran. whethera big question, trump and xi, in their bilateral meeting, can come to some understanding. we are trying to manage the and-china relationship, putting extensive pressure on north korea. betty: i want to read two statements from james mattis and donald trump. mattis saying he does not believe it brings us closer to war.
7:20 pm
then, trump said, it is a shame they are behaving this way, a very dangerous matter. something will have to be done about it. he said that in warsaw. who do we believe? max: i would tend to believe james mattis. but the president is commander in chief. if he gives in order, mattis is a duty-bound to honor it or resign. it is a total incoherence within the administration over how to conduct foreign policy. one message comes from one secretary or cabinet official, and then the president says something else. what is clear is that the u.s. has very few options on the military front. there is a limited amount we can do. escalating militarily would be catastrophic, not just for south korea, but potentially for the entire region. this is about containing north korea and potentially engaging in talks down the road. betty: thank you so much for

7:25 pm
-- soundcloud has many regular listeners. asking to ban of imports of iphones. an increasingly bitter fight over patents and technology. matt larson joins us now from san francisco. what has prompted these latest lawsuits? matt: what looks like is going on, apple and qualcomm has been in licensing discussions. there is an escalating legal title that is brought in manufacturers, the ones that build the devices before apple sells them. these talks have gone nowhere. qualcomm is making an effort to get more leverage in those discussions. they did that by filing a lawsuit in the international trade commission, which could threaten to block certain imports and sales of iphone devices in about 21 months. it is basically an aggressive litigation tactic to try to bring in some leverage and
7:26 pm
licensing talks. yvonne: we have seen this further escalate. is a surprise to see these lawsuits filed? matt: it is not a surprise, it is a common litigation tactic in these large-scale disputes. we have seen similar tactics used by ericsson against apple a couple years ago. we saw nokia file similar lawsuits when it was battling apple. both litigations resolved before in ultimate block of any products. it is a common event in patent litigation among tech the giants. the balance being, apple is not going to come to the table and agree to pay a higher loyalty because that affects margins. qualcomm does not want to give away any dollars or leave dollars on the table because it contributes greatly to their bottom line. it is high-margin revenue and qualcomm was to get as much as it can.
7:27 pm
so they escalate the legal battle and try to up the stakes before a deal is reached. betty: what happens next? matt: next in this lawsuit, qualcomm iron two suits. the district court action will be put on hold. the international trade commission will solicit public comments about what would happen if apple's products were blocked from the u.s. other companies may weigh in on how it would affect licensing companies and entities that rely on collecting royalties. c will decide to begin an investigation in august. --rial will not happen in a another year or so, with an ultimate decision in 18 months. yvonne: the saga continues. thank you for your perspective. asia braces for a possible bond selloff after central-bank

tobacco -- debacl e with the phones catching fire. there is been a lot of talk when it comes to the super cycle in shifts for samsung, whether it can knock off intel as being one of the most top global manufacturers of chips. for the first time when it comes to revenue, it looks like these numbers are supporting that case. a sizable beat when it comes to operating profit. you can see how this is benefiting the diversification of samsung's assets. take a look at the bloomberg terminal, you can see however thing breaks down. this recent set of numbers are just the luminary. we are not going to get too much of the units and how they fare. you can see how the growing reliance on chips is slowly growing pace in the orange bars. the green bars or where the smart phone sales go.
7:32 pm

going to impact us here in asia. the first chart was interesting. this is the s&p 500 and the 50 day moving average. you can see how we have been through that key level. not always give us a predictive value of what is going to happen next. us anhey do is give indication of where momentum is in the market. selling is gathering momentum in the u.s. equity market. we will see that it is still over to asia. and this is sitting on that 50 day moving average. pretty tricky times. one upbeat thing we will see today will be those samsung numbers. that is been a very good performing stock in south korean equities. generally doing very well. may be the bright spot in among
7:36 pm
some a gloomy trading during the week. betty: we know that where samsung goes, so goes the south korean markets, right? moving to australia, one stock doing well is not giving any leeway to the short seller. what is going on here? their shares of a great week, they were boosted this week by an increase in their net profit forecast. they have been gathering in this stock, big-time. slightly more than 30% of its free flow. bears have descended on this stock a number of times over the years. it has been a tricky trade to get right on the short side. it is still well down from its all-time high. there is been some money to be made. but it is on a real tear this year, up 40%.
7:37 pm
that is more and more paying into the short side. more strength to the short thesis, around the slowing australian economic picture in the way consumers may be spending less coming back on discretionary spending, taking less holidays. that may put more pressure on flights into shares. they seem to be going from strength to strength. much, adamks so haigh in sydney talking about bears. a lot of that in the bond markets. hawkish rhetoric from central bankers reverberating threat the global bond market. monetary convinced policy drawing to a close. kathleen hays here with more. tell us what happened here. why are we suddenly on this hawkish stance? kathleen: it has been gradually building.
7:38 pm
it kicked off when mario draghi spoke at the ecb forum last week. i want to start off what happened -- with what happened in the european bond market today. the fundamental did not change much. but there is a weak french and spanish bond option. german bund yields jumped. not as far as when mario draghi spoke last week. look at it, you will see the 10-year german bund, the benchmark germany has broken out of a range held since beginning of 2016. pointing reporters out, to really signal there is a new bear market that will go and go, they yields have to double from where it is. still, an interesting move, maybe it portends something else. draghi spoke at the conference, the ecb forum. he said deflation is over, we're looking ahead to reflation.
7:39 pm
said, they will move sooner or later to start removing bonds. buying bonds, remove the stimulus. the ecb minutes were out earlier. they suggested they discussed easing bias, but they were not ready to move. the chief economist for the ecb was speaking after the minutes came out. he talked about patients on policy. that is what mario draghi also said, saying we have to be patient to make sure policy is working, which does not suggest removing the stimulus or changing the bias. they say the exit doors opening and they are concerned the ecb has to move. they do not want to jeopardize price stability. let's look at what he said against where they are on inflation in europe right now.
7:40 pm
you can see that the turquoise line, that is headline inflation, it is well below 2%. 's target as well below 2%. the core rate is a steady. 1.1%, a long way from 2%. bottom line, this selloff in the german bond market has been going on for about a week. it has opened the door for the u.s. bond markets, and even more pressure on the jobs report tomorrow. and on the bank of japan. betty: on a day like today, that is when everyone pays attention. people pay attention to him anyway. but even more today when he is saying, the bond bull market is over. there is a selloff coming. what is interesting, he is not the only one who has said this. there have been many calls like
7:41 pm
that. they just do not get as much attention. -- i want toid play for you what he said a month ago. the most attractive of the developed markets in comparison 25the 10 year bond -- bund, basis points. 190 basis points. [indiscernible] 205 basis points. they are march active on a yield basis. but still, i would suggest that they are overvalued, price-wise. investors should be cautious in terms of how much they want to hone, relative to the cash. betty: the longer way of saying
7:42 pm
what was said today. adam: he said we will see 3% on the 10 year treasury. bill gross said a couple months ago that once you get above 2.6 you are entering -- territory. seen.ains to be one thing i think about, we have a selloff. you go to the top of your range. again, the jobs report, what if it came in weak? that monetary report that will be presented as that big thing they do twice the year, she will testify next week. at that is coming out tomorrow, as well. that report will be so scrutinized. are they going to be more hawkish? in the context of this bond market selloff kamala harris
7:43 pm
focused and more drama, perhaps. yvonne: that drama feeding in japan. 10 year yieldhat at a critical level for the boj? kathleen: it could, the bank of japan is now being watched. will they come in and buy some to bring the yield down? what you're going to see here in this chart, is right over here on the far right, you can see how the 10 year yield has poked its head above 0.1. sinceas not happened february. a look how things were back then. what happened, the bank of japan came in and bought some bonds. the bottom line is very important. not just for the bond market, but for the bank of japan itself. yield curve control is one of the most important part of the bank of japan's policy, keeping that 10 year at zero. the more we have a global bonds market selloff, the more major
7:44 pm
banks signal, we are going to move higher with our policy, the more we see pressure on the bank of japan. the pressure to step up and buy more bonds and explain to the public what they are doing. july 20, 21ing on will be an interesting one, maybe even more interesting than the fed. kathleen hays, joining us from new york. be focusing on this reason rout in the global bonds. 12:00 p.m. eastern time tomorrow. lb midnight tonight. -- that will be midnight tonight. a lot of coverage of their on a very important topic. another important topic, the jobs report.

7:47 pm
yvonne: we're counting you down to asia's major market open this morning. japan futures it down 0.6%. against the$113.14 dollar. betty: we're talking about the jobs report. we are all counting down to the latest payroll numbers. the decision about future rate hikes, the pace of hiring has slowed in recent months and there is a lot of talk about companies's inabilities to find workers with the right skills. that is pressuring wages. let's discuss this with a chief
7:48 pm
economist. first off, the numbers. what do you expect tomorrow? >> they kept solid momentum. it was at 4.3%. they are taking a breather after having dropped a lot in the last couple months. betty: so we are in line with consensus. if there was going to be a surprise, where you think it would go? >> i am below consensus, but just marginally. important -- i think we have to the knowledge that gains have been slowing. that is a slower than what we have seen over the past several years. there is just not enough qualified people in the labor market. that, we are
7:49 pm
wondering where the wage pressure is. i am assuming that will be an important number for us to look at tomorrow. is it going to be enough, if we do not see that wage pressure? for thebe enough naysayers to say, look, there is no evidence. harm: i think the fed can raise rates further. it is all a debate about the phillips curve. the lower unemployment rate puts pressure on wage gains and inflation. my response is, we can look at all core inflation measures and they have all picked up a little bit. not as much as they would have in the past. the phillips curve is slower than it has been carried but the negative correlation is still there. linear.t you see a sharp rise in inflation and wage gains. that is something to worry about. they do not want to hit that point. they want to keep normalizing
7:50 pm
interest rates as the unemployment rate is going down. 4.3% is already a low rate. betty: that acceleration. been talkere has about financial stability. should we expect to the fed to continue to tighten even if the data does not suggest it? harm: it is not tightening, but removing accommodation. i think they are right to do so. suggests that even this inflation rate, below 2%, it should be at least 75 basis points higher than it is right now. financial stability is one of the two major mandates of the two-- is not one of them major mandates of the fed, but
7:51 pm
it is one of them. eased,al conditions have even if the fed starts to raise rates a bit. there was no impact on the financial conditions. there is interest rates on the one side, and the economy on the other. the fed is unhappy about it. they would like to see some tightening and financial conditions. yvonne: everyone says the fed is in the driver's seat when it comes to alleviating accommodation. the we have seen a dramatic rise in yields. i will bring up a chart. some are saying it is more technical and fundamental. ecb, boj, is still far from raising rates. why do we see this dramatic rise in yields? you see it is a game changer? harm: it is tough to talk about the technical component. but i think there is momentum behind it.
7:52 pm
game changer is a strong word, but it is key. been startinghas to withdraw accommodations, several other central banks are talking about it. as you correctly pointed out, they are still far away from pulling the trigger. maybe after the experience the u.s. had in 2013, they just want to be sure they are preparing markets early and sending ,ignals early and stepping back two steps forward and one step back. i would emphasize they want to send the signal very early. betty: i want to pull up a chart, as well. it shows you the correlation between jobless claims and gdp. when it is going up it is showing the job market is improving. what is so interesting is that
7:53 pm
in the early 1990's it was so closely correlated. now, gdp and jobs growth is so widening on the spread. it happens after 20. do you think it will continue? harm: it is another way of showing the low productivity puzzle. we always hope there is a little pickup and productivity, which means job growth and gdp growth will be more aligned. it is not much more than a hope. it would be important for the economy if it picks up. betty: thank you so much. chief u.s. economist on the jobs report. you can get a roundup of that story and more to get your day going in today's edition of daybreak. subscribers can go to dayb on their terminal. you can customize your settings so you only get the news on the

cheaper cars. only sevens year electric car models are available globally. 200 plus ramp up to cars by 2020. consumers will have more choices. the third region is that basically new trends like autonomous driving as well as ridesharing and ride hailing will actually accelerate the change of electric cars used globally. so that is why you should be more bullish this year. betty: where these lithium ion batteries going to come from? is there enough mining capacity for the materials they going to these batteries? or will we see-- a shortage? theurrently china dominates market for the batteries. we expect production to triple and the next fee is led by china but also the u.s. and korea. with regard to the metals,
