exposure of the interest of companies to perhaps some kind of retaliation, not so with the smaller caps, so they are outperforming at the moment. haidi: we clearly see these u.s.-china trade tensions playing out and taking a toll on oil prices. is the concern that that will feed into the demand or hurt demand? what's the latest ahead of that opec meeting? su: it weighs on the concern about the man at the time when the optimism about a possible compromise move is likely to be discussed friday at the opec meeting, is falling apart. opecs to be unanimous that ,nd the move to boost output they're pushing for $1.5 million a day out the gate and it has been hurting the price, as you see there. a lot of u.s. traders are saying in addition to the headline risk they been predicting, this could
6:10 pm
be a very volatile meeting. it's a buckle your seat got kind of countdown to that meeting in the anna. vienna.e anna -- in haidi: probably a messy looking meeting as we get closer to friday and saturday. let's get to the opening shots of this potential trade war between the world's top two economies. president trump is maintaining his hard-line, signaling skepticism that talks with china would actually work. is the administration willing to take this all the way to a trade war? is it seeing this is kind of a negotiating point? >> at this point, they seem to be quite serious about doing this. treasury secretary mnuchin predicted that the trade war would be on hold. it has not been much of a factor
6:11 pm
in talking about this are dealing with this in a public way, suggesting that his view has lost out at the trump white house. the president as you said expressed some skepticism about whether this could be resolved with negotiations with china. in fact, he is not only added tariffs on another $200 billion worth of goods from china, he said that there would be another $200 billion worth of goods that would be tapped with tariffs in the future if china continues to retaliate. china does not seem to be backing off, either. joe, what are the chances that congress could step in and try to resolve this? joe: at this point, it's fairly low. there's an effort by some business groups to lobby congress to increase their oversight on trade and tariffs, but so far, the minor efforts that have been made in congress theoll back, for instance steel tariffs on the e.u.,
6:12 pm
canada, and mexico, have pretty much come to naught. there is a fair amount of sentiment in congress for punishing china. a lot of centers, both republican and democrat, have seen china playing unfairly in the past and are concerned they say about national security productssed by chinese zte, so the company there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of movement in congress that they are going to step in any time soon. toy: when it comes negotiations with china's role in north korea issues, what is the impact here? ostensibly, donald trump has to rely on beijing. joe: that's right, they've gotten a lot of leverage here. there also the major trading partner for north korea. third,isit to china, his shows that china is in fact putting themselves in the middle
6:13 pm
of this and they intend to exert their influence whether or not they choose to use that as leverage in the trade talks, it will be a very delicate balance for the chinese to make, but they could easily make trouble for the president, as his goal is to make this relationship, or this new relationship with the north koreans work and get to a point where they can get rid of nuclear weapons on the peninsula. xi has quite a comfortable seat here on that. ramy: an interesting balancing act for donald trump as well. thank you very much. still ahead on "bloomberg daybreak: australia." u.s.-china into the trade spat with fred hoch work. haidi: up next, investors drop walliskiest assets as

6:17 pm
talking about this rotation into defensive strategy and away from growth and into value. have we actually seen that? >> we haven't really seen it. when i came in this morning, there was no lack of complacency when i saw the screen. when you look at how strong the u.s. market is, i think krugman has a point, and we may indeed see the vix continue to tick up, but the u.s. and credit -- u.s. economy is incredibly strong. that factors into president trump's calculation on the trade war, if you're going to do it, at at do it with nominal gdp 5%, maybe even 6%. it's not a bad time to do it. so a little complacency, maybe, but you have an incredibly strong engine right now in the u.s. and that is what is driving a lot. haidi: is it your assumption
6:18 pm
-- willse tariffs be they create that short-term inflationary impact, or are you more concerned about what policymakers will have to do to navigate the longer-term dragnet seems inevitable? think it's the longer-term dry. there is already inflationary pressures building up globally and were just seen that for the first time. it has been a long time in the developed world that we've seen any inflation. it's kind of conceptually a new concept for us, and by that i mean in the last 10 years. tariffsard to the specifically, we have to remember that in many cases they have to be finalized, then there are 60 days to implement. talking aboutare the midterm elections coming up in the united states, many of hair, whatever the number ins up being, they
6:19 pm
probably would not really be felt for a while. i think it is a longer-term game and folks speculate as to who has the longer time frame, .resident trump or president xi both have the incentive to make this work, so we will see how it plays out. to your point, i think it is longer-term than maybe we saw from today's markets. by the indication of the futures, maybe the markets are already recognizing that. for our investors watching, is this a buying opportunity that the dow has just turned negative just today? but you talk about economic growth in the u.s. approaching 5% or so. john: your correspondent earlier pointed out that the russell 2000 hit an all-time high today, despite the market turmoil. i think that's less related to international sales and is related to the tax cuts and some of the strength of the u.s.

economy. cio on tv a-known few days ago saying that the rusheconomy was on a sugar like a little kid that drank eight soda and was all amped up, but they would trash shortly. i think there is really structural strength in the economy -- they would crash shortly. it's more of a long lead time. buying opportunity, it's tough on days like this. sometimes the best thing to do is sit on your hands and reassess where you have conviction. all those things that we like that are bottom up stock stories that are executing their business without any problem today, they are executing their business, i think we want to rethink where our convictions are. i think e.m.'s are cheap, they look very attractive. but we do have to assess whether in a sense the technical issues start to affect the fundamentals. forou look at flow of funds

6:22 pm
the shanghai composite has been more affected by some of the tightening the last couple of years. this would be a natural time for it to start to breakout. by the saints open, if it stays below that 3000 level, in some ways that's a market saying wait and see. there were two firms that came out today that downgraded china growth for 2018 and 2019. i think we need to give it a few days to settle in, but that is a level i would want to watch and keep an eye on as well as fund flows. haidi: is it fair to think of chinese markets in this environment as almost a bit of a haven? john: yes, i think that is true. which isa name we own down 5% last night, which is crazy because it say domestic market. shift cement. but there is something to that. are there domestic businesses
6:23 pm
that even if china's growth slows to mid six is that are fine? i think it begets a bigger issue which is, should we even think of china as an e.m.. where are you investing, they say china. what games do you like? we like tencent. a notch or that's the same as saying we are going to go into peru or turkey or brazil. i think there is something to may in a way,a there could be some safe haven there and there are some attractive businesses. china is still a very strong economy and there are still some great bottom-up stories there. haidi: think you can order -- you can argue china is like anything else on fundamentals in the story. ,reat to have you with us, john

if you're asking china to change structural reforms and opening up, we know the president likes shorter-term wins. exactly the problem. these have been brewing for over a decade. in terms of having a more level playing field, it's going to require more coordinated action, which may sound boring to the if we aretion, but simply looking to reduce the trade deficit, that isn't going to address the structural problems that we and the entire and theworld development we've had with china and continue to have. we make it a sugar high from reducing the trade deficit, but we cannot solve the fundamental issues with china, which will take some time and have to be a little more nuanced. about who has morgan appetite to with stand the pain coming through, how damaging is it likely to be to

people have not said those three letters, wto. your thoughts? fred: the wto is not as effective as it could be. it needs to move more quickly and more swiftly. it is a somewhat cumbersome process, but it's the only thing we have. there's an old expression, don't throw out the baby with the bathwater. until we get a better process, that's the process the world respects, china respects. we have been successful when we have prosecuted things against china, it's not clear why we would want to abandon that now. it does not make sense to me. fred joiningtuff, us from massachusetts. still ahead, will the philippines raise interest rates on wednesday for a second straight month? the country central bank governors speaks to bloomberg in exclusive interview, next. this is bloomberg. ♪

6:48 pm
increase and it would not happen without batteries. ramy: what is exactly driving down these that are it costs? >> the biggest single driver a better cost reduction has nothing to do with power markets. this is a transport story. we've seen a ramp up in the investment in energy storage for electric vehicles, electric buses, etc. driven down battery pack presses by 79% in 2010, and we expect that to continue to by 2030. further 67% so it's really a transport story at the moment. report also looks at the role of natural gas. how does that play into the power mix? >> globally, there are changes over this period. many natural gas operators are running their plants around the clock and we anticipate they will increasingly be a source of
6:49 pm
flexibility alongside batteries. essentially you still have room for a lot of natural gas over a -- though it may decrease. ramy: really interesting stuff. all of this to the detriment of coal. logan: yes, indeed. natural gas has a clear role in providing flex ability, but cold is not. we see coal being the biggest loser in our outlook here. it ends up being outcompeted on and by wind and solar outcompeted in terms of the value it can provide for flexibility by gas and batteries and demand response. ramy: promising stuff there. thank you very much, logan. to central banks now in the philippines, the central bank governors seems to be making the case for yet another rate hike as consumer prices rise to a five-year high and as the peso vols ahead of the banks

bsp is intent on securing the return to its inflation target and to see more orderly trading in the exchange market. david: are you raising interest rates because the fed is raising interest rates? is that the key consideration? primarily the interest rate tool is focused on securing domestic policy objectives, of keeping inflation low and stable. why we raised interest rates on may 10 is really to manage inflation expectations, to manage the second round consequences from the supply side driven first expand andt does not
