tv   Bloomberg Markets European Open  Bloomberg  September 23, 2019 2:30am-4:00am EDT

2:30 am
anna: good morning. welcome to bloomberg markets, "the european open." i'm anna edwards live from the labour party conference alongside matt miller in berlin. political risk is overrated. stocks slip as the u.s. and china hold constructive talks ahead of the u.n. general assembly meeting. are the markets still mispricing the risks? cash trade is less than 30 minutes away. anna: thomas cook shuts up shop.
2:31 am
the travel company folds under the weight of its debt, leaving tens of thousands of tourists stranded. brexit goes stateside. boris johnson takes his bid for a deal to the general assembly in new york. labor divisions threaten to undermine its party conference in brighton. brent resumes gains on concerns over aramco's output. iran's foreign minister sounds a tough tone after a u.s. troop deployment to saudi arabia. >> i'm not confident we can avoid a war. we are confident we will not start one, but i'm confident that whoever starts one will not be the one who finishes it. half-hour less than a hour to go until the european open. i'm taking a look at a month-long chart of oil. you can see the break away to the upside when those aramco facilities were attacked.
2:32 am
we then recovered to some extent, but we are coming back up in terms of the group rice. those tensions are building backup. take a look at what we are expecting in terms of the cash equities open. we have the ftse, cac, and dax futures. futuresooking at -- dax looked to be pointing up. i'm not sure how dax futures are trading right now. i might take that with a grain of salt. cac futures are down. ftse futures are up to some extent. those are indeed a live cash trade. i'm not sure if that dax future is a live cash trade. mark cranfield in singapore. the markets in japan are streamg a wrench into my here. overall we saw asian equities down even though we saw the u.s. government assure us that the
2:33 am
cancellation of the chinese farmland tours was at its request and the chinese say talks are constructed. what's going on? >> people are more concerned donald trump is not ready to have a partial deal with china. also, the increase in oil prices. it's going to take saudi aramco a bit longer than expected to get full oil back online. that is slightly disappointing. more trouble in hong kong over the weekend. a week to go until this major chinese holiday. we could get another round of protests just ahead of october the first holiday break. that is pretty important as well. datawe have china pmi coming out in a weeks time. but we saw today was korean export numbers which are pretty horrible, even allowing for a
2:34 am
slightly distorted period with a korean holiday. really simply very bad numbers. that does not bode well for the next bunch of data out of china. a few things which have been coming together here, plus pboc fixing was higher-than-expected. put those together, there is probably more negatives to look at than positives. you have a slightly weaker market in china in particular. more negatives than positives. where does that leave the dollar? we heard from eric rosengren saying he thought fed policy was already accommodative, denying any need for further cuts. he rebelled last time. what is your latest thinking on the dollar? >> if you look at it from the point of view, the fed speakers are going to be important. some people might be saying, the
2:35 am
fed have already moved a few times. there is pricing to suggest another rate cut as well. going to getlar is support here. reallywant to be negative on the dollar based on interest rates. there probably would have done so already. leaders at the major the united nations to discuss climate. there is certainly room for people to come to disagreements here. so many people in the room at the same time. that could also unnerve markets. you have the chinese holidays coming up. there's a number of small things coming together here with my support the dollar on the basis that it is the biggest, most liquid currency. it has a bit of a yield. nothing huge. probably a slight bias towards dollar strength this week.
2:36 am
matt: it does not look like there is a rush to safety in the dollar right now. that ties in nicely to the mliv question of the day. our markets mispricing geopolitical risks? what have you been hearing from clients? >> there is a touch of complacency. if you look around, particularly when you look at performance overall, not too bad. gold has lost some of its gains. the treasury market, most of the yields have gone up. look at the way assets have performed the last few weeks. we have moved well away from the point where we were using havens at their extreme levels. pricing hashat changed. if you look at the rhetoric coming out, we just heard the iranian leader on the news there . it certainly does not sound as though he is ready to have friendly discussions with the
2:37 am
united states. there's plenty of other hotspots as well. until the beginning of october when the chinese delegation goes to washington, we might see improvement then, but there is plenty of room for misjudgment between that time. when china go on holiday, we have a bit of a news vacuum, at least on the chinese side, which will probably be fueled by what we hear out of the united states. a lot of that has not been very constructive recently. there is room over the next couple weeks for markets to get a little bit anxious about what is going on in the world. the easiest thing for them to do would be treasuries, gold, that sort of thing. matt: thanks very much. anna: mark, think spree much for joining us. barry much for joining us. reach out to was in the markets life team. -- markets live team. i'm here at the labour party
2:38 am
annual conference, off to a rough start. jeremy corbyn is struggling to keep his party together. senior members demand an unambiguous brexit stance. joining me now is the director general of the british chambers of commerce. good morning to you. many businesses quite like an unambiguous start. what do you make of the most recent suggestion from jeremy corbyn that the policy is neither leave nor remain at the moment? it is all about getting a labour party brexit deal negotiated with brussels. >> for businesses, this is all about getting an outcome. the process has been going on for three and a half years. we have seen twists and turns from all the main political parties. businesses need clarity. they need certainty over what is coming. they need to know some basic things about the trading conditions. i think they want all the political parties to come together and deliver that.
2:39 am
the last vote, you were neither leave nor remain. you were all about the actual outcome for business. if we see another vote, will you have the same stance? we are facinghat is the potential for a disorderly exit on the 31st of october. that is just weeks away. businesses are sending goods around the world and don't know what trading conditions goods will arrive at port under. we have to get to a conclusion on this. we really don't want to see a messianic disorderly conclusion. -- aat is -- that is what disorderly- messy and conclusion. anna: you have measured brexit and no deal. you found out out of 36 areas,
2:40 am
10 are flashing red on your dashboard. one of the gaps when we prepare for the potential for no deal? >> firms look at the advice governments are publishing. there is lots and lots coming out. they say, is this clear? is it specific? is it actionable? in a lot of areas, that is simply not there. take for example if you are trading across the border between northern ireland and the republic of ireland, there is still no clarity in fall businesses on what would happen in the event of a no deal brexit. the two sides are not putting their positions forward on that in the midst of negotiations. it extends to other things. what staff can you hire? what regulatory approvals do you need? these are basic, everyday business questions. they don't have enough information. >>'s government still listening to the bcc? what is left to be said?
2:41 am
>> they are certainly listening. we have had constructive conversations with the opposition here. oppositionment and are listening to us. they're listening to business. they are hearing the real world concerns. the problem is, they have got that outcome -- they have got to know the outcome. anna: we talked about the branch withn olive business. did you feel welcome at this year's conference? are big concerns still out there for businesses about some of the party's policy platforms. some of the things that are voted on in this conference center that have to do with business, in terms of nationalization of particular businesses, concerns about unprecedented levels of intervention in individual firms
2:42 am
and the way they operate. these are things we are having a constructive conversation with labor leadership on. that conversation has got to continue. at the end of the day, there are points of agreement as well. if you talk about training the workforce, if you talk about fixing infrastructure where we deficits, there are points of agreement. we have got to build on those, but also get to a point where business feels more comfortable than they do today. anna: there are some areas you do agree on. with the news flow in mind, i wanted to ask. thomas cook. boris johnson has said to do more would be to create havoc. can business expect more? 's business resigned to this kind of outcome? >> in every period there are businesses that rise and businesses that fall. it is part of the business cycle. the most important thing is you get economic stability and political stability that firms need. you will see more firms in
2:43 am
difficult situations able to navigate through. what we don't want to see is a continued level of uncertainty, continued messy situation. that is when there is more business failure. anna: thanks for joining us today. up next, ipo mania. ,ompanies set to list this week but after high-profile flaps and poor performances, how will they get on the? more on that ipo frenzy shortly. the annual bloomberg business forum in new york. we will hear from the likes of jamie dimon, and christine lagarde. all of that in new york. the u.s. -- the un's general assembly also meeting. this is bloomberg. ♪

matt: a minute away from the open of cash equities trading across europe and the u.k. let's take a look at what the markets are doing. we go to annmarie hordern in london. annmarie: good morning. asian equities kicked off the week to the downside, msci asia-pacific down under 1/10 of a percent. csi 300 dropped more than 1% this morning. s&p futures in the u.s. are higher this morning. trade is back and focus. richard jones says the bar is high for an agreement. it will be difficult to get a powerful rally in equities. on the british pound, trading around one spot against the u.s. dollar. this is as the labour party
3:00 am
kicks off their conference in brighton. brent crude up about 1%. here's how futures are ahead of the open. a bit of a mixed fixture -- picture. euro stoxx 50 lower, and keck futures lower in france, down nearly 2/10 of a percent. it's now gone just 8:00 in the city of london. let's look at how the markets are opening monday morning. ftse 100 opening up flat, but a bit of an eke to the greenside. we see in foreign exchange the british pound and they are at the labour party conference. we have the euro stock 60 opening to the downside and spain's ibex opening to the downside. in europe, mario draghi speaking this week, not just about trade. we have pmi for france in 15 minutes, germany at 8:30, and eurozone at 9:00. we are seeing a bit of red across markets. germany opening up three per --
3:01 am
3/10 of a percent lower. quickly scanning the grid, i see financials in the red, as well as industrials. interested to see how gas does. ended the week having the best week in more than a year as brent crude rallied from 7% last week. geopolitical risk, questions about when the kingdom will produce the last output arise. also in consumer discretionary's, this is where leader stocks it, what kind of hit thomas cook's will have on that. we're seeing a lot of red across the sector picture. health care firmly in the green. what leasing across individual movers? matt: i see health care doing quite well. look at the stoxx 600 here. we've got 362 stocks down, only 200 up. winnersmore losers than
3:02 am
right now, basically 7-4. astrazeneca, nora nordisk, novartis, diageo all could be considered health care stocks, rising this morning, adding points, keeping the stoxx 600 back from bigger losses. you do see, on the downside, sap fulling -- pulling the stoxx 600 down. some of the tech stocks down this morning, as well as some of the luxury stocks. louis vuitton and caring are both on the downside here among the biggest drags on the stoxx 600. we also see glencore down this morning, fickle bilbao, a lot banco- finkel bilbao -- bilbao down. the ftse is getting slightly as
3:03 am
investors monitor latest elements entry talks -- latest trade talks. you, howart by asking do you think the trade talks are kicking off to start the week? >> well, some noise a bit earlier about cancellation of visits on farms, but it seems like that was part of the scheduling. and so, so far so good. both sides have made good gestures to create a right environment. a massiveexpecting grand bergen here. but so far, so good in terms of getting some agreement not to escalate things further. that's all the market needs at this point. talks andtructive canceled farm visits. we plough on. let me ask you about fed part to
3:04 am
see -- fed policy. what are you expecting from the fed? we've had a little time to reflect on the meeting and press conference. eric says he disagrees with the market that the economy needs a rate cut to continue expansion. what are your thoughts? hani: i think it's clear now, there's some division within the fed. the centers are being quite vocal. but the center ground seems to be on track to doom one more cut this year, perhaps another one next year as well. as an insurance policy. in this midcycle adjustment, although powell didn't use those words, with think that is still the central approach year. and that is going to be sufficient, we feel, to keep -- to put growth back on the right footing. and we're already seeing very good signs that the parts of the
3:05 am
economy that are most industry sensitive are really starting to show signs of life, particularly in housing. aboutare you concerned the repo crisis we watched last week? it seemed the fed has been able to get rates back down to normal, or close to normal. the cut onk they -- excess reserves interest rates, interest on excess reserves -- i'll get it out here -- or intervention into the markets, was sufficient to solve the problem? hani: look, we may need one or two more injections of liquidity on that front, but i think what's clear now, to us at least, we're likely to see the fed resume purchases on the asset side to relieve this liquidity pressure. and that's also another positive for the market. it actually means we've got the
3:06 am
ecb resuming its balance sheet ion, and the fed will be doing that, as well. so the backdrop is now very supportive for growth going forward, and we're coming to the end of this slowdown, very concentrated in the manufacturing parts of the economy. and that puts us in a good position to see resumption of growth going into the end of the year and into early next year. conditionsinancial accomodo. --, save -- ative. we're heading to the u.n. general assembly in new york, were plenty of geopolitics will be on display. do you think markets are underpricing the risks here? hani: well, i think the market where we revealed there was a
3:07 am
mispricing of geopolitical risk was the oil market. obviously, after the events of last week. so we're likely to see upward bias pressure to oil prices, even if saudi arabia manages to bring production capacity fully back on, as expected, by the end of this month or next month. but that vulnerability in the global supply for oil has now been revealed, and is likely to introduce a risk premium into oil prices that has not been there for quite some time now. that's really the market where we say geopolitical risk is underpriced. the other one is clearly u.s.-china, and that really is the wildcard, very difficult to predict what will happen on that front. but even there, we would say there's a risk things breakdown. but at the same time, the window to the u.s. election and the
3:08 am
window in which president trump would look to actually cool things off and create a positive tailwind for growth is narrowing. so it's less and less likely, as time goes by, you'll see further escalation. anna: thanks very much, hani. he stays with us on the program. up next, closing up. the 178-year-old travel company files for bankruptcy as it fails to secure last-minute additional funding. what does this mean for other travel businesses? we'll get the low down next. this is bloomberg. ♪

matt: welcome back to the european open we are 11 minutes into the trading day. the ftse is getting too tense of 1%, but other indexes are down -- 2/10 of 1%, but other indexes are down. i've got the screen up on the bloomberg terminal set of monday. travel and leisure stocks are getting today. -- gaining today. they're the biggest gaining group, perhaps because they can pick up market share on the bankruptcy. utility and food and beverage stocks are gainers, as well as health care. everything else is down. tech,resources, banks,
3:12 am
and automakers the biggest losers on the day. thomas cook one of the biggest market movers, filing for administration, leaving tourists stranded abroad. they failed to complete a last-minute deal for additional funding, collapsing under a mountain of debt. paul thomas cook flights and vacations have been canceled. the british government will bring holidaymakers back,, calling it the largest repatriation in peacetime history. joining us. fail,d the bailout talks first off? >> for some tourism, they offered a $1.4 billion payoff deal and last week, unfortunately, thomas cook said they would need to do $50 $250on of extra funding --
3:13 am
million of extra funding. there's economic concern and they might have thought they are paying way too much and would get a lower return for a big investment. anna: good morning. we heard the government isn't going to step in. other companies affected by this, not necessarily negatively. some companies responding positive to this news of thomas cook. ksenia: that's right. it's amazing, as you say, european travel stocks are the biggest gaining sectors this morning. i agree with matt it's probably on the fact they will win market share from thomas cook because it was a giant presence in the industry. we're also looking on the beach, where they would get a one-off cost related to thomas cook's collapse to evacuate. some other companies we're
3:14 am
watching are rbs and lloyd, because they are big creditors to the company. this is a major part of the revenue. they won't get a huge hit. at the same time, something to watch as brexit continues and more of these midsize to small size companies will have issues. matt: is brexit one of those macro reasons that led to this collapse? what are they key macro economic reasons that led to the thomas cook collapse? ksenia: you're right. brexit is a factor, but it's not the main one. the main one is the online cap edition from -- competition from online resources, like expedia, that most of us use. not many people go to travel agencies to buy their holidays anymore. online retail and economic uncertainty played a big role, and a big speculation about bankruptcy prevent people from going to thomas cook in the first place.
3:15 am
anna: thank you for the update. european stocks reporter is any a glushko giving us the report. boris johnson is taking his bid for a broker-deal to new york. he will meet with key eu leaders on the sideline of the u.n. general assembly. he told reporters not to expect a major breakthrough. try to manage expectations. hani is still with us. your thoughts on u.k. assets as we creep closer to october 31. a lot of talk about what might happen when parliament comes back in the middle october, or, who knows, before then? do you still clear at the moment? -- steer clear at the moment? hani: we are. we are short sterling for quite some time, but we square that out. we think the downside scenario now is a little more balanced
3:16 am
with upside because there is still a chance we see some movement as we've been seeing on the irish backstop issue and some sort of solution on that front. still a lower probability, but sterling priced in there's a chance of that happening. and then there's also an extreme probability, low probability of a forced exit on the 31st of october. more likely scenario now is we get a delay and a general election. that's still the central scenario, which means we're still in limbo and it delays the entry point for u.k. assets for us. we think there will actually be interestingk -- an buying opportunity for assets. we're not there yet. matt: we're getting french pmi numbers out there right now,
3:17 am
falling to 51.6. the forecast was 53.2. pretty poor number, though still an expansion. let me ask you about stocks. if i look at my screen here, i can see the cac around up near 20% date -- to date. that's more than the stocks, the s&p 500. stocks,ou think french european stocks are doing so well? the dac and the ftse mib are also up. why are european stocks doing so well, especially when u.k. stocks have done so poorly? relative. absolutely. obviouslythe u.k. is suffering from brexit. it's less of an issue for europe. that's the relative to the u.k. within europe, you're right, the
3:18 am
cac has outperformed, and there's a couple of factors and that. one -- behind that. one is that it's much less sensitive to the global manufacturing cycle, compared to, for example, germany and the dax. that has been less of it drag -- less of a drag for france. that explains why pmi's have been fairly robust compared to the rest of europe. that's one factor. another factor, a slower moving but very positive factor, is that the reforms that president macron has been pushing through, are actually starting to bear fruit. and we're seeing it through lower unit labor costs in france, as opposed to rising labor costs in germany, for example. that has helped to restore some of france's competitiveness versus its global peers.
3:19 am
and that's part of the reason why we think the data coming out of france has been more robust than others. it's definitely also because of the less cyclical exposure to the part of the global economy weakhave been recently -- recently. hani, we're going to keep you with us. thomas cook revels surge after the company files for bankruptcy. this is bloomberg. ♪

matt: welcome back to bloomberg markets. this is the european market 22 minutes into the trading day. stocks,at a drop in with the exception of the ftse. please add to annmarie hordern. annmarie: thomas cook's pain is the gain for its rival. both are searching on this news. thomas cook collapse after failed talks with creditors. that's giving wafer rivals to have -- giving way for the rivals. the real estate company in germany is buying a massive stake, really taking control of this swedish property
3:23 am
developer. matt, anna? anna: thanks very much. boris johnson added heft behind the claims iran was on the strikes -- behind the strikes on saudi aramco. iran is refusing to rule out a war in the middle east after the u.s. sends additional nilla terry aid to saudi arabia -- military aid to saudi arabia. aboutot optimistic avoiding a conflict. won't not confident we avoid a war. we're confident we won't start one. whoever starts one will finish it. fast tensions grew and how saudi arabia will restore output. a portfolio manager is still with us. we talked about how geopolitical risk is underpricing oil
3:24 am
markets. do we need to add an extra layer of risk premium into oil prices as a result of seeing the vulnerability of the saudi installation? hani: i think some of that has started to happen and there's potential for oil prices to drift a little higher as a result of that. but we don't think there's a conflict ahead. at this stage, it doesn't seem eitherere is appetite on side to escalate anything through direct confrontation. need to price anything that severe at this point, but vulnerabilities revealed are not going away. we're starting to get a sense of how much damage could be done if this broadened to targeting of uae infrastructure, as well. that risk premium does need to come in. we think the market has come some ways to doing that already.
3:25 am
so, $65 for brent looks good, in your opinion? priced correctly? hani: there is risk premium and then there's the supply and demand backdrop. we've been expecting to see continued ramp-up of production from the u.s., for example, to the shale play, as midstream energy firms that have been investing growing that capacity online. those drills and uncompleted wells starting to get connected to the global market. some of those factors will act blipfsets to the incapacity that's been lost in saudi arabia. overall, when you factor in both supply, demand, as well as risk premium that needs to come in,
3:26 am
we think oil prices are still going to be fairly range bound. biasith the potential toward a little higher in the medium-term. in the intermediate term, they go higher. what about the raw -- long-term price of oil? i was reading about betting on $100 oil. we haven't been there since 2014. hs we had back in that direction? hani: for now, we don't think so, unless there's a wildcard of further attacks that really exacerbates things. but absent of that, it seems quite clear that there is the ability for the market to provide the additional supply. the marginal producer is u.s. shale and higher prices does incentivize that additional capacity to come online. it puts a cap on prices. unlikely to stay at 100, even if we get there.

welcome to bloomberg markets. this is the european open. i matt miller in berlin, -- i'm matt miller in berlin, alongside anna edwards, was at the conference in london. anna: at the labour party conference trying to work out what the opposition party thinks about brexit. you might think that's an easy question to answer, three and a bit years after brexit in 2016. is not a clear remain or leave stance we get from the labour party. jeremy corbyn put forth his stance, and he once the party to go with him. he wants a general election and once labour to go to brussels to negotiate their version of a labor deal. and other areas. that's what they want to do. they want to put that to the people in another referendum. that's the stance. we're trying to gauge where the fault lines lie in the party on that front, and get to some of the other breaking news around labour party policy.

3:35 am
i'm joined by the u.k. shallow chancellor. -- shadow chancellor. he said the u.k. could remain. does that strain your relationship with jeremy corbyn? process inink the which we can bring the party together is a logical sequence, about lecture related government, then seeing what deal is available at the time, and then putting it back to the people, both in terms of a sensible deal, and what he says in terms of the party, we can take that decision once we know what the deal is. i can't see we can get a better deal than remain. anna: but that could mean you're arguing for something difficult from john mcdonnell. the leader of united said anybody on the front bench of the labor party, if they don't agree with corbin, they can sit down.
3:36 am
guest: that's a classic statement. i will take it with a pinch of salt. the issue is, how do we bring the party together? it's allowing people to have that logical sequence of seeing what the alternatives are, definitively, and giving people that choice. in that way, the way in which jeremy corbyn is managing it, is i think the only way we can heal divisions in our community. whatever is the outcome of that final referendum, there is healing from it. anna: he sees a remain campaign as the quickest path to power. would you agree? guest: there's issues beyond party advantage. we're talking about national interests. i'm one of the key elements is whatever path we take is the best path, and the country -- the path that brings the country back together. that's why jeremy -- it's his style. is a consensus builder.

they delayed its ipo until october at the earliest. joining us from the deals team is sarah syed. this is a fascinating story, and it's been gripping attention of wall street for many reasons, but mainly because they don't like the governance in place at this company. sarah: there is a lot of pressure on the guy himself. whoever is in power at the business holds a lot of weight when it comes to transactions like this. he has a charismatic personality and i think the personality fits squarely with unicorn capitalism. you have these businesses that are very attractive, have massive growth potentials. behind the, you have a carrot -- behind them, you have a charismatic leader. this is a pure example of his personality dividing investors. matt: seems like investors left

matt: welcome back to bloomberg markets. this is the european open, 53 minutes into the trading day, red arrows every day -- everywhere. a big drop in the dax. the reason for that is the huge disappointment in manufacturing pmi. we've had bad pmi readings from germany from european countries before, but this is, i think, a new level of disappointment. for that, for more on that, let's literature jones on our

mliv team in berlin. richard, we were looking at a 44 even. we got 41.4. it was lower than the previous month, which was 43 and change. why are german pmi's continuing to slump? richard: they make for grim reading. the thing that's worrying about september, the flash readings, is that services is no longer bailing out the german economy. the reading is now below 50. i think for the past three months, we know manufacturing has been weak, but services has been buoyant. the fact it's below 50 because manufacturing is so weak and filtering into services is a big worry and something to watch closely because markets are reacting. this was a surprise, even though the data has been bad for a while. matt: anna? anna: we'll keep an eye on that weak data then, richard.

-- impossible for marcus to price geopolitical risk because it comes out of the blue, it's not predictable, and never the same way twice. markets can't be proactive. they have to be reactive because it's not something to get their hands on. anna: thanks for your time, richard jones, our strategist joining us in berlin. i'm live at the labour party conference, things getting busy in the background behind me. during this week, we'll be looking across the atlantic to new york. coming up, the biggest names will gather for the bloomberg global business forum in new york. we'll be hearing from the biggest nine -- names. all of those and many more will be on the program. matt: we're going to continue to keep an eye on european equities, falling further and harder than they were than the
