5:09 pm
let's head to one of the topics of the past few years, brexit. theresa may has staked her authority now on getting her deal passed by the u.k. parliament after it was formally approved by eu leaders. warned there could be no renegotiation if british lawmakers voted down. kathleen hays is here. may is determined to fight this bottle and win, but so are her opponents. yvokathleen: don't count her out. this is one tough promised her. there are problems on both sides -- kathleen: this is one tough prime minister. she says she is confident she can get it through and ready to -- >> before christmas mp's will vote on this deal. it will be one of the most significant votes parliament has held for many years. it will depend whether we move
5:10 pm
forward together into a brighter future, or open the deal -- door to more division and uncertainty. kathleen: many on the european side say if there was any better deal, theresa may would have gotten it. she was stubborn, tenacious. many hope the deal can go through, including jean-claude juncker, saying brexit is the only deal for britain. let's listen to what he said, because this does seem to be the sentiment overall. >> those who think that by rejecting the deal that they would have a better deal will be disappointed in the seconds after the rejection of this deal. kathleen: of course head of the ec commission, his voice very important in this debate. conservative eurosceptics in her own party take a deal. the u.k. to stay under it for too long.
5:11 pm
theresa may said she is not sad. however, she did not answer questions asked by reporters if what happens if the deal does not pass. would she consider stepping down? she said she is more focused on getting the deal through. clearly if this is not passed and it has to go further, would there be a general wreck -- election? theresa may is not talking about any of that. she is saying, i'm going to get this done. haidi: we're talking about 524 days of negotiations, a 500 plus page document. theyeen: let's be clear, had to agree on a couple very important issues. you would probably have to be in the eu to understand why they are so important. but the rights of citizens living in the eu, that has to be protected. deal, 39of the brexit billion pounds.
5:12 pm
more than the u.k. wanted to pay but better than some estimates. it is really this irish backstop. let's see why it is so contentious. the debate rests on the question of the backstop, meaning what if the future talks -- assuming they will avoid something that allows northern ireland to have a free flow of goods with ireland, with the eu and remain part of the u.k. but it means the whole u.k. stays in until this is done and northern ireland has to follow single market rules. this is been a big issue. the northern irish mp's oppose this. the leader calling for a third way. she says we have to get rid of the irish backstop. then of course in the last hour, so many, including emmanuel macron, his contingent on the u.k. giving french fishermen

greater access to their waters. now we are seeing all these little deals people are trying to throw in. the chief negotiator tried to fight this back. it will not just be the house of commons and parliament for theresa may, it will be the eu trying to get her 27 members. every vote has to be unanimous. haidi: definitely not exactly smooth sailing for theresa may. we will be watching the next few weeks very keenly. expecting a wild ride. kathleen hays with the latest on brexit. still ahead, a leading democrat says he will investigate'president trumpss business dealings with saudi arabia. ramy: as we approach the end of this year, what should investors be watching in december? the head of investment strategy joins us for that. this is bloomberg. ♪

haidi: a very good morning. we are counting down to the start of trading this week. the open is looking pretty negative. downside of about 1% indicated by futures trading lower. it is a holiday, shortened day on friday. thanksgivingrst decline we have seen since 1939 for that week. ramy, happy thanksgiving, politically. ramy: thank you so much. getting over that coma from the turkey. want to catch you up from that logitech headline we talked of earlier. logitech now saying it is not in an acquisition discussion with plantronics. this is in response to media reports and in accordance with swiss disclosure laws.
5:17 pm
apparently they had been in discussions with plantronics regarding a potential transaction in regards to the peripheral vision space headsets and cameras. those discussions were terminated and logitech says it does not intend to comment further. let's get to our next guest because we are talking about correction territory. u.s. stocks as well as oil plunging. it has traders arming themselves for the next weeks. when of those investors is head of investment strategy at wilson. he joins us from sydney. were's been a lot of red have been seeing across the board. down.p 500 and the dow december,rward to what are you trying to hang your hat on potentially for any positivity? john: good morning. i think this week there is a number of fed speakers which are
5:18 pm
talking in the u.s., including the vice and chairman powell. i think the market is looking for potentially some signs of dovish overtures coming through. wilsons is unlikely. it is more likely to be in 2019. it is backend loaded. two points we are looking for our inflation numbers from the u.s. towards the back end of the week and of course the g20. that i think is the important signal to whether this correction starts to find a fall. backend loaded this week i think. ramy: for sure. looking forward to the g20 most if not all eyes are on trump and xi, where they are scheduled to speak about trade issues. to what degree the think this is a breakthrough, and how often is it that anything could actually
5:19 pm
happen? john: i think markets are looking for a pathway. i am not sure we are actually going to see a detailed agreement this weekend. success, aay to pathway to an outcome would be highly supported for equities globally, provide a potential circuit breaker. haidi: i want to bring out the chart here. this is about 26 years without a recession. country's this fortunes continue to be tied up with china. this is the chart i'm talking about in terms of the growth we are seeing being linked, commodities, exports being a huge part. australia, if you talk about the global and asia supply chain, there are a lot of vulnerable spots. how much does an emerging market rebound on some sort of circuit break or progress being made? or on the other hand, has
5:20 pm
markets already priced in things that will double down in january? john: a lot of bad news is already been priced in. a number of stocks in australia and asia, it is implying a significant fall in earnings. that is not our house view at wilson's. or indo see a pathway outside case of an agreement, i suspect that will be highly supportive to the region and to australia. what else isms of driving this market, we have a lot of fed speak this week. suggesting we will see a number of dovish hikes going into next year and maybe even a fourth. is that becoming a best case scenario? john: look, the fed has always said they will be responsive to data. next year every fed meeting is a live meeting. haidi: communications don't
5:21 pm
change. john: right. communication format changes. our view at wilsons is that view from the fed will not change in december, i think that is a given. evergh 2019 i think there is a chance if the data starts to slow, and there early a few areas in the u.s. where we are seeing higher interest rates impacting real economic activity, housing, auto, you probably need to see that broader for the fed to think about a dovish overture, if you like. ramy: pushing this ahead of little further, the r word, recession. what is wilsons view? do you think it will happen? john: at some point all cycles end but our view is we will not see that next year. even out to 2020 i think that is still nowhere near our best case. you look for signs of excess capacity utilization.
5:22 pm
you look for signs of in be inflationd -- i am not convinced that will feed through to core inflation and force the fed to really jump hard on the brakes. what we are looking for next year is growth still being maintained. you will see a little pickup in inflation. some of the one offs from inflation will start to come out and you will probably start to lated numbersre start to come out of inflation data. and of course health care you will see coming out of the data next year. i'm not convinced this is enough at this point to tip the u.s. into a refresh and -- into a recession. far from it. ramy: what kind of safety do you see? energy was the biggest laggard on friday from oil falling. but utilities have been the only sector that has actually been gaining after, seven, eight,
5:23 pm
nine quarters of continued losses. john: i think that is how we look at the bond markets. look at where 10 year treasuries have gone in the u.s. the scare at the start of october. now we are talking about a three. it is the irony in markets at the moment. markets are worried about these up ticking inflations, but treasury said -- treasuries have come back. toying with a real slowdown in inflation. this makes it a little tricky. the fed probably is not going to communicate that. not just yet, in our view. haidi: thank you so much for joining us. head of investment strategy at wilsons. coming up, just a week after carlos ghosn's arrest, mitsubishi weighs in. this is bloomberg. ♪

let's switch gears and look at washington, dc. president trump could be facing another investigation after the top democrat in the house intelligence committee said he's planning to look into the president's ties to saudimo fro. get us up to speed. the democrats taking control of the house of representatives are going to be looking at president trump and his administration on many schiff,n 2019, and adam the top democrat on house intel, talked today about how he would like to know how and whether president trump financial ties -- trump financial ties or enhancing his policy. he is not the only lawmaker to criticize what president trump has said about saudi arabia. plenty of republicans have
5:37 pm
criticized trump as well. you have bob corker, a segment ,rom michael lee, joni ernst trump has faced bipartisan opposition but the democrats are the ones who will look into it. one of the things you start with is in 2015, candidate trump had boastful remarks about how much he sells to saudi arabia, the quotes are all there, saved for all time on the internet. he said that one campaign rally that saudi buys all kinds of toys from trump. democrats will take a look at the toys that may the at play here. at in terms are we of the mexican trade deal? ros: the migration deal i think you mean. haidi: i beg your pardon. ros: you have that on your mind, we always do. had a pretty
5:38 pm
blockbuster report yesterday from the washington post and others that mexico's incoming government looked at -- has agreed with the u.s. it will hold the central american migrants in mexico before they cross over the u.s. border to possibly seek asylum. that would be a big change in immigration policy between the two countries. after that report, which was based on comments from axa can officials, some of the same officials walked it back and say nothing has been agreed to, and they may have possibly gotten ahead of themselves. the government doesn't come into power in mexico until december 1, so it shouldn't be negotiating any deals based on regular protocol. goings deal really is concern, you would expect for challenges we have seen democrats criticize it. it would be a huge deal i think
5:39 pm
for the government and a big win for some of president trump's advisors hard line on immigration. the imageses against you referenced in the prior across themigrants border, the u.s. border in tijuana being tear gassed today. immigration is suddenly a signature issue and it is coming to a head. haidi: pretty difficult with the left wing government coming to take over the reins of government. the detailsmore as become available. our editor there in washington. let's look at what the market week has in store for us in asia. on a bit of a downer. adam haigh is here with us in sydney. we have the s&p in correction territory. it seems like investors are
5:40 pm
split. is this healthy or portending some doom and gloom? adam: there are a few thingsadam: to note how things have been behaving. volatility is something we haven't been accustomed to over this run, so it is something people are adjusting to. the idea of 10% correction amongst the big cycle of equity gains isn't in and of itself that concerning. it is a calibration of some extended valuations in pockets of the market. that should not worry anyone. the more overarching region -- reason that could worry people is the fact that people are bringing back earnings growth expectations, and a lot of people, investors and strategists who are bringing down global growth expectations for the next couple of years. it is a combination of a couple of things that are coming to force prices down. what you are seeing in the bond
5:41 pm
market is notable the last week. we had a real ratcheting down of fed hike expectations for 2019. that has been marked and pronounced. it is rare that we see a move of that magnitude. we use the euro-dollar spread their between 2018 and 2019 to indicate the market expectations for fed hiking next year. this year will be quite -- has the potential to be key because we will hear comments from powell. he could go somewhere to address those concerns investors have about why that might be brought back. we also have the potential for some kind of agreement with president xi and president trump, so that could provides relief. ramy: shifting to bitcoin, the cryptocurrency has continued its decline ever since the middle of december last year. what are folks saying? has it hit part -- bottom?
5:42 pm
it has come back a little bit. adam: it will be brave to call that one. price indications over the weekend for further falls, the price is under pressure. if you look back a year ago, the backend of after thanksgiving when a lot of people signed up for new coinbase accounts, there is no sign that is really happening this year. the landscape is changing in terms of the appetite for cryptocurrencies, and there is a lot oflying shoretel people had even after the big price declines we have seen. to whatke it is tough has already been a tough year for the cryptocurrency space, no sign of any sustainable relief. my stomach hurts each time we continue to cover this. global markets editor adam haigh . don't forget to check out our library for some of the charts you just saw adam bring up on gtv on your own terminal.

5:46 pm
crowds. if you look at the video that has emerged on the weekend, you see this data we find in gtv clicks versus bricks holds through. mobile e-commerce as a percentage of retail e-commerce is increasing but the healthy crowds were out there taking advantage of discounts, almost 7 billion believed to have been spent. -- $7 billion believed to have been spent. and many of the websites of brick-and-mortar companies -- we have video if we can take a look at it. so many of these companies have invested in it, their websites either crashed or had glitches or were overwhelmed. that is a theme that has emerged that even though there is growing evidence it is moving online, these brick and mortars have been slow to catch up to you where we used to have this frenzy of shop until you drop, it is now spread over many days
5:47 pm
as investors realize there are many bargains to be taken care of. we had an interesting development where there was a strike and protest by some of the amazon workers in europe. we didn't see that in the u.s. in terms of companies that had their websites overwhelmed, these are the lists. kohl's and walmart. you also had companies up and training on friday including l brands, and korea, they got bounceback, but there were many stocks that were down in the red friday. that is underscoring a theme for this week that even if we have a record cyber monday in conjunction with strong black friday, it may not overshadow concerns about interest rates and trade of woes that will impact 2019 spending. haidi: thank you so much for that. the cloudsore on
5:48 pm
looming over the holiday shopping season. we are talking of interest rate hikes but in particularly the terrorists wars. this is thes -- vice president at international trade, the retail industry leader of this association, a group of major retailers including best buy, home depot, lowe's and walmart. on this have you thanksgiving weekend. even if we see robust numbers out of black friday and cyber monday this year, there is this cloud. were you expecting to see inflationary pressure on these goods from china? >> our message has been retailers have had a great year, and these terrorists -- tariffs are putting pressure on the supply chains. what we are held for -- hopeful for is they are thinking about
5:49 pm
the american consumers and what next steps to take in this trade dispute with china and particular. -- in particular. they are thinking of the families paying these tariffs they have imposed. haidi: is this a concern weighing on retailers? >> we have made significant investments in our online presence. it is one of the reasons we have seen such great numbers coming out of black friday and what we are looking forward to on cyber ouray, but the other issue retailers have been able to address is mitigation strategies. they have been able to mitigate the first two parts of the terrace put in place. the next is everyday day items like mattresses, toilet paper. rampe tariffs are going to up, expect 10% to 25% in january, that is the focus of
5:50 pm
retailers, trying to figure out what to do in our supply chain. ramy: i am wondering how long u.s. retailers can actually continue to whether this storm. terminal.he bloomberg i want to show our viewers how this is to verging from what is happening with retail sales and consumer confidence. consumer confidence is in white. it is falling for most of this year. but retail sales are rising. how long can they hold on? >> retailers operate on razor thin margins. when these tariffs are put in place, there is nowhere else for the prices to go except for what american consumers pay. that means higher prices great when you look at 20% tariffs, we are focused on trying to make sure customers are getting the best value and the best prices in our store and online. we are working hard with our supply chain executives and sourcing to make sure we are
5:51 pm
bringing the best products to american families. do you rally with shoppers out there, the folks going to the brick and mortars, ? e clicking onto any website how do you say this matters, because i would like to think folks who did black friday and are going into cyber monday and are -- are not really thinking about the trade war as top of mind. >> we want consumers to be focused on going into our stores this thanksgiving and holiday. the products they are most excited about -- we want to make sure our products are priced at the right price point and ready for holiday all around the country. how we think about consumers are experiencing tariffs right now, we are trying to mitigate that as much as possible so consumers are not feeling it. there are certain places where razor thin margins will cause price increases. we have been able to mitigate
5:52 pm
through most, but our focus is making sure the 25% ramp up that comes in january is delayed as much as possible or forestalled and focused on the fourth bunch of tariffs the president threatened. we are hopeful that when the president sits down with president xi at the g20 meeting that they are able to focus on resolving this issue and keeping american consumers in mind. haidi: are you and your retailers managing expectations, and therefore you would have in your back pocket some sort of strategy for dealing with worst-case scenario? we have been getting lower and lower expectations for the meeting. >> the best outcome is for the two leaders from china and the united states to sit face to face and resolve this. what we have seen this far is a commitment the president had made to sit down with president xi is a great commitment. it is something retailers commended in a letter last
5:53 pm
month. we are hopeful they can sit down face to face and resolve this issue. the best case scenario would be a pathway forward that would allow for the tariffs to be forestalled, and then taking very serious steps to resolve the underlying intellectual property issues. thank you for joining us. coming up, australia's labor party is riding high at the ballot box after a landslide election win. we will look at the state of play ahead of a national vote next year. this is bloomberg. ♪ r. this is bloomberg. ♪

the liberal party which rules nationally but was in opposition in victoria, there had been a terror attack in melbourne, but the labour party campaigning on testing, the energy policy, to have 50% of the electricity generated by renewables by 2030. there was an embrace of that policy and rejection of this campaign that was fought on fear from the liberal party as well. the policy sentiment among voters was interesting as well. game continues. some parties saying it will still blame mark -- malcolm turnbull apparently. paul: still reaching out to the base. ahead looking pretty bad of the federal election next year. that is just about it for daybreak australia, but daybreak asia is next. look at how trading in new zealand is getting underway. we are getting underway when it comes to trading in australia,
