6:00 pm
shery: welcome to daybreak asia. i'm shery ahn in new york. sophie: we are counting down to asia's major market opens. haidi: our top stories this hour -- asian investment -- investors look ahead -- evergrande possible against payment in months as -- bitcoin and either
6:01 pm
hit all-time highs, tim cook says he's a crypto investor and apple is looking into digital currency features. shery: we are getting the jobless rate out of south korea coming in at 3.2%, edging higher from the previous month of 3%. also coming in slightly higher than expectations, as we see more people getting back into the labor force. we are talking about a high vaccination rate in korea, the loosening of social distancing measures, and more people getting back into the workforce, so that is potentially helping the unemployment rate edged up. this is coming at a time when we've seen the most jobs added since 2014 already. south korea's adjusted jobless rate coming in at three point 2% -- slightly higher than estimates and slightly higher
6:02 pm
than the previous month. we have the australian market opening right now. sophie: downside moves in the aussie sector. a soft start here. beach energy that stock gaining ground. tracking the jobs we are seeing in oil with the u.s. releasing emergency reserves. also keeping an eye on iron ore miners in sydney. we see shares losing ground after a five day advance. you see aussie bonds resume gains, keeping low that 74 handle and goldman shorting the aussie dollar against the loonie. that's one of the top trades in light of their bullish view on oil and the aussie dollar exposure to metals.
6:03 pm
goldman's revised forecast for the expansion of china's economy has been lowered to 4.8 percent from the initial forecast of 5.2% amid housing, and deleveraging. it is an improvement but it does reflect the lower growth for -- lower growth for longer than tolerated in china. today, we will watch reaction to reports for the rule of bond shorts being relaxed. haidi: a look at what we are watching today. you were talking about the unemployment rate and labor market in south korea starting to see these changes as covid restrictions start to ease. we are expecting to see that play out in australia as well. that's going to have an impact on the unemployment rate. this has really angered the rba
6:04 pm
stance. they don't expect to see the inflation target to return to that level for at least two years. they are expecting tightening as early as next year. shery: not only restricted to australia but all over the world. we've seen in the u.s., we are expecting those cpi numbers and we already saw cpi numbers in the u.s. accelerating the month of october. as we continue to see this monetary debate, we have this wildcard with news we had president biden interviewing fed governor brenner as he is contemplating whether to give chair powell another term. his term ends in february and brenner is generally seen as more dovish, so what does it really mean for monetary policy
6:05 pm
will be a key issue. haidi: a key issue will be looking at policy reaction ahead of the u.s. cpi numbers. factory inflation in particular. we have seen runaway levels, expected to come in at a 26 year high. all of this, while not having a huge impact on global inflation, that is likely to worsen for domestic chinese businesses. a lot of smaller players struggling with domestic demand and the energy crunch on their production ability as well. we will continue to watch that and look at the widening gap that is expected in china today. shery: let's delve into those inflation numbers, not to mention the much anticipated fed decision. let me start with what is happening at the fed.
6:06 pm
what would a new chief at the federal reserve mean in terms of monetary policy here and perhaps the broader impact around the world as well? >> lower for longer seems to be the interpretation for investors. if the white house was to change course as the thinking is, the lift off or interest rates would come later. that is important for emerging economies around the world. you couldn't say jerome powell was in a hawkish stance and some economists say regardless of who is running the fed next year, inflation will set the course and that narrative for u.s. policymakers and no matter how dovish she want to become a curious fed chief would hold the rate steady in the face of quickening inflation. if there is change, it looks
6:07 pm
like it will be taking more force. haidi: key to all of that is what we see out of china. it has been a one-way track. enda: this has been a fascinating number all year. the highest since 1995. most reflecting a big jump in prices. of course, it will stoke debate over will producer prices start trickling down? and heading overseas, there's some evidence the price heading overseas because the scale and breadth of price pressures chinese producers are facing, they are increasing prices for
6:08 pm
overseas customers. it's expected to be a more sanguine picture compared to the global one. certainly not on the scale we are seeing in western europe or the u.s. haidi: our chief asia economics correspondent there, thank you. evergrande have another $148 million interest payments due following the end of a 30 day grace time. let's bring in our chief correspondent in hong kong and start off with what's likely to happen today with evergrande. what we likely to see if anything? >> it is the end of the 30 day grace. and as we saw with the dollar bond coupon payment due at the end of september, they paid in the 11th hour.
6:09 pm
on your screen coming up on the left -- saturday, they had the coupons due from the unit that dollar bond holders were not paid. this payment of $148.1 million is due today. we don't have any indication whether they will or won't pay it, but if they don't, they could face defaults on billions of dollars of outstanding payments that are due and as you rightfully said, some of these credit jitters are spreading beyond the junk rated borrowers. they did avoid a default but they have two more coupons due thursday and friday totaling
6:10 pm
more than $88 million. so there's tons of stress built up in the property space, but we are already starting to see the credit jitters spread to investment grade developers. shery: tell us more about the impact we are seeing in the investment grade chinese bond so far. >> that is what is interesting. authorities saying they are confident, but the credit market jitters and look what the fed says in their stability report. they are referring to the property market as a risk and i will read one statement from that stability report saying financial stresses in china could strain financial markets through the deterioration of risk sentiment. that is why we've seen china's higher quality bonds suffering their worst selloff in months.
6:11 pm
the investment grade notes count for the bulk of offshore dollars and they have widened eight to 10 basis points after widening about seven basis points on monday. so it is definitely spreading to investment grade borrowers. one of their notes had spreads widened by 12 basis points. on tuesday, banks not surprisingly, and let me read this quote from mark reed, head of fixed income in asia -- in that short term, he said we believe some form of government policy or intervention is ultimately inevitable. at which time, chinese dollar bond should rebound at the path of least resistance for chinese credit spreads is wider.
6:12 pm
that is where we stand right now. haidi: let's get you to vonnie quinn who has our first tort headlines. vonnie: president biden and is chinese counterparts are scheduled to hold a virtual summit next week, though no specific data has been set. it comes as the two nations spar over taiwan and beijing's expanding nuclear arsenal. we are told the session will not address the issue. a visit to taiwan by a group of u.s. lawmakers is likely to further inflame tensions between washington and beijing over the status of the self-governing island. the pentagon confirms -- they defense ministry strongly condemned the business which says it interferes in chinese affairs. john kerry says he sees the cop
6:13 pm
26 producing an agreement on trading rules. a complex set of technical rules still needs to be hashed out. carrie played down expectations for a grand statement on climate and bashan but says he remains optimistic terms can be met. >> i am making sure we are continuing with fusion and pouring are efforts into research across international lines and i am confident we can get there. human beings created this problem. human beings can solve it. vonnie: global news 24 hours a day on air and on bloomberg quicktake, powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. i'm vonnie quinn. this is bloomberg. shery: still ahead, we assess the outlook for cryptocurrencies with bitcoin and ether hitting an all-time high. plus china inflation could hit a
6:14 pm
20 year high as we assess the outlook for chinese economy with that he said. this is bloomberg. ♪
6:15 pm
6:16 pm
haidi: let's check in on the crypto space. the biggest names coming off their record highs we saw earlier this week. we heard from tim cook weighing in on crypto, saying the company is looking at cryptocurrency features without elaborating on what that might entail. for more on this, katie stockton is the founder of their leave strategies. when you look at some high-profile names in the business community weighing in, is this the kind of positivity required to take crypto to the next step of mainstream
6:17 pm
acceptance? >> i don't think it's required, but i certainly think it helps. bitcoin and altcoins seem to have momentum and that can't stay there -- that can stay there but when you see the headlines and still see a positive reaction, that tends to be a positive. we have new all-time highs by both bitcoin and ether and there's not much you can imagine better from a technical perspective. haidi: take a look at this chart that looks at market capitalization. $3 trillion when they talk about bitcoin and a theory them. what we tend to see is the fallback multiple times in the past. what's next driver for the next consolidation level forward?
6:18 pm
katie: the charts don't answer what the driver will be, but it can help you scan the prevailing trends. we did see bitcoin pause around it's springtime high. that was a resistance level just shy of 55,000. now there is a break we call pending confirmation. when we see rake out on charts, we like to see them confirm not just in price but we like to get a couple of solid closes above certain levels. that confirmed breakout for ether would say the current trend will maintain itself close to $6,000 and for bitcoin, you can see that same confirmation next week and that would yield a long-term measured projection.
6:19 pm
it doesn't mean we won't see short term on the way there. shery: how is bitcoins rally compared to ether in the long run? katie: ether is seen as the long-term runner. we look at relative rotation grabs that we get in the bloomberg terminal and that helps us identify shifts in market leadership. we've seen some outperformance from bitcoin but it tends to be the more defensive or defensively acting cryptocurrency, largely because it's the first to the market and has the biggest following. it's seen as may be a little more boring. consolidating forward the cryptocurrency broadly, that's when you tend to see bitcoin outperform, it seen as a bit of a safe haven but it does suggest
6:20 pm
ether is the winner. shery: there seems to be a broader fear of missing out in this rally but this is coming at a time when you see china's blanket ban on transactions and mining, focusing on developing their digital currency. once we have more central banks coming forward with their own digital currencies, what will the market dynamics be? katie: it is high-risk, high reward at this stage in this marketplace which is relatively new and that is where the fear of missing out comes from. it feels like we are on the cusp of something big and people want to take advantage of that, naturally, that they are more willing to chase that uptrend that as the momentum already fueling it. we can't really predict using the charts, especially how any of this will impact a market -- i think the markets have shown to be resilient.
6:21 pm
it cracked a stage that was significant in percentage terms and more than a full recovery of the losses once the market absorbed the news that drove it. i think the resilient market, a very early stage market and folks are willing to take the risk. it's going to be a matter of finding the right altcoin for those looking beyond bitcoin and finding the winners among the large swath in the sector. shery: always great having you on. thank you. let's turn to oil -- prices jumping in new york after the white house said it would not be announcing the release of strategic oil reserves but at least not yet. su keenan joins us with the latest and there's growing speculation that biden has taken this option off the table. su: a view that he has taken
6:22 pm
that top off the strategic reserves. they had been warned the upside and oil had been limited by the fact that u.s. might cap these reserves and put more oil on the market, so news this is may be off the table has oil on the run once again. nymex crude up almost 3%, almost another percent in the asia trading section -- trading session. a big move as west texas intermediate and brent approach the mark. the catalyst for the white house decision, also a forecast that oil prices would be moderating, so the white house said it would not be announcing an oil release at this time. analysts confirm the report is dovish and does not support an spr release.
6:23 pm
so that is where we stand right now with that option. meanwhile, the market looking ahead to the weekly inventory report. people say it shows u.s. crude supplies l last week by 2.5 million barrels, so that is another bullish factor we could see going into the wednesday trading session. prices have been skyrocketing with a global economic recovery boosting demand. opec-plus was deciding on its monthly output -- they are holding two very modest outputs and some analysts say we could see oil spike to $100 in 2022. that slight possibility. haidi: in the meantime, a drop in prices? su: we are seeing prices down --
6:24 pm
this as we have had a moderate forecast for the fall weather. that is mainly used in fuel burning scenarios and factories, so bottom line, what we have is lower demand for natural gas and a big focus on that inventory report. traders, analysts and brokers are betting that report will show a big build up and supply as well. that is a bearish factor. haidi: su keenan late -- with the latest on the oil patch. we have more to come on daybreak asia. this is bloomberg. ♪

7:36 pm
sector. for example, online gaming. i think you will see reducing of the regulation but the online advertising, you will see the policies have impacts coming to you and it's mainly happening in the third quarter. you will see impacts from the third quarter earnings. shery: what are you expecting in terms of the share price? it shows how much they have been under pressure given the ongoing regulatory crackdown. >> our price is 440 six, very close to current half price. -- current price. the price is just one fact but the other fact is whether

7:42 pm
past -- different kind of path, and at least something we can measure against which is comparable and we are comparing oranges with oranges and apples with apples rather than right now it is a whole basket. >> the polluters are the activists -- do we need to do something to discourage listings that go into polluting industries and fossil fuels? >> the first is we can see some financial institutions withdrawing financing for polluters and fossil fuel companies. that would make raising capital not an easy one. at the end of the day, companies would need to have good financials in order to lift so it would reflect on their financial. it is not just the exchange row
7:43 pm
to stop these polluting companies but to encourage renewables and innovative technologies that come to the market to help -- for example, the solar. and wind turbines. >> would you loosen are lower the standards for listing these companies? a lot of these technologies are either very expensive or very experimental. there is the profitability that may not even be there. >> we already have a chance on biotech companies and that is a start. perhaps we could consider in the future about other innovative companies as well.

tranches on wednesday. it will be the first sale since november and it comes weeks after evergrande narrowly avoided default. we are looking to see the size of this order book -- that would extend what has been a strong run of robust demand and show the global hunt for yield as outweighing any concern of the property sector in china. the dollar bond yield is more than 5.8 times the deal for the dollar offering seem last year. a lot of money managers saying they do expect that demand to be there. we will continue to watch as we

haidi: for chair of the cb supervisory board says -- speaking exclusively with bloomberg, they said the pandemic has spurred lenders into refocusing their business models. >> we should be glad that for the sixth quarter in a row, profits have exceeded expectations, which is good. only at the beginning of this year, banks were thinking they would have achieved the pre-pandemic levels in 2023, so very positive news. the regulation and supervision which has constrained profits, i don't think this is that case but we are applying the same
7:50 pm
international standards as the u.s. the implementation in europe has been softer than in the u.s. we speak with our colleagues frequent leanne we came to the shared conclusion that supervisor requirements are in the same book as well. the main driver of the profitability is structural weaknesses -- investments in digitalization, banks should focus on these measures to address these issues rather than complain about regulation. >> and you are saying don't blame us, you should get more lean, get more out there when it comes to digital investment. that is something you would argue european banks are behind? >> to be honest, the pandemic has been a turning point.
7:51 pm
there's been a long time in which european banks seem to be waiting and they are rebuilding their margins. i think that they need to take action and we are seeing consolidation, we are seeing in their digital daily lives that they have been able to increase a lot in terms of cost efficiency. not all the banks but some are moving and it could trigger the banking sector. >> the market is pricing in -- the ecb will -- is pushing hard against this idea, saying the conditions are not there yet. at least for the time being. how does that factor in?
7:52 pm
the environment is changing. how do you see that in a regulatory perspective? >> the low interest rate environment that has been until the middle of 2020, the positive effect on volumes is more than compensated for the negative affect. it is true that the margin affect that has been prevailing has a negative effect and it is likely to persist for a while. the banks should focus on customization, may be considering consolidation and rather than waiting for something from the space that could help them out.

shery: we will be watching the taipei opening meeting with fei company planning to build a plant in japan. it's a subsidiary of sony. peter elstrom joins us with the latest. how much will this help the global chip shortage peter? peter: this is driven by the history we've seen with these shortages that have hit a bunch of companies, particularly the automakers. that includes toyota and honda in japan where they've had shortages and had to close down their factories or suspend production. japan has been pushing hard to build a more advanced chip plant in the country. they do have a lot of customers
7:54 pm
that want to have closer access to chip manufacturing. and to be clear, the plant they are going to build in japan is not going to be the most advanced technology they have. they are going to build a slightly older chip factory with older technology that builds chips but it is very good for the auto industry and other partners, including sony, as you mentioned. haidi: is it a big benefit? the stock has not reacted very positively. peter: one analyst called it a slight positive for sony. sony has to put somebody in to the project. there are additional costs and risks. semiconductor manufacturing has typically been centralized in one location because it adds
7:55 pm
efficiency that is why tsmc has always made their chips in taiwan. so for sony, they are getting more security in their supply chain, a plant in their own country and that is closer but there will probably be some additional costs that come along with that. in this time of extreme stress over shortages, this is the trade-off that companies like sony are willing to make. they are willing to pay more to make sure they have more dependable access to some of these chips. shery: we do have an alert on the bloomberg -- an ev maker set to price it ipo at $73 a share, above their raised target range already after having expanded their sales of 153 million shares. sophie, what are you watching? sophie: the ev space, keeping an
