7:00 pm
>> good morning. i am haidi stroud-watts in sydney. >> i am shery ahn. >> i am sophie kamaruddin in hong kong. welcome to "daybreak asia." haidi: our top stories this tuesday, shots fired. president trump announces new tariffs on china. they are worth $200 billion and go into effect next week. the news will reverberate markets.lready wary
7:01 pm
the yen gained haven strength. moon heads for north korea. stalledping to revive nuclear talks with washington. shery: let's get started with a quick check of how markets closed in the u.s. monday session. we saw the downside pressure. gainsp 500 reversing 2.6%. weakness,h semiconductor weakness, the nasdaq falling 1.4 percent. amazon, apple, microsoft leading the decline. the markets closed before president trump made the announcement on new tariffs on chinese products. we are anxious to see what they were. we just got the numbers. 10% tariffs on $200 billion worth of chinese imports. implemented, going into effect, september 24. after that, we will see the terror of being raised to 25% -- tariffs being raised to 25%. president trump will implement
7:02 pm
these tariffs. of course, may have warned china haveo retaliate -- they warned china not to retaliate. they could consider additional ones could be targeted. all of this will play into the markets. let's see how things are shaping up. sophie kamaruddin is here. sophie: the tariff plan is being interpreted as more severe than anticipated given the step up to 25%, but at the very least, there were no additions to the earlier draft list. werely 300 tariff lines removed including car seats and highchairs. smart watches will not be included, but when you take a look at what we are looking at for the tuesday session, stock losses at the start of the major market opens for tokyo as well as sydney and seoul, tracking u.s. futures lower. the nzx 50 ticky madoff, falling
7:03 pm
.4% as of now. japanese markets are set to reopen to the downside after the long weekend. up a prolonged traits that between the u.s. and china and that has implications for a global supply chain, so with that at play, let's check in on currency markets. the dollar looking steady. the yen with a second day of gains. the aussie dollar off by .4%. the offshore yuan is back above .688 against the greenback. we can anticipate looking ahead. more pain for chinese stocks potentially after they sank to an unwelcome milestone on monday. pulling up this chart to show you some of those declines, we have the shanghai composite falling to a four-year low. it may start feeling like deja vu for investors as we are at a level that preceded that boom and bust. haidi. certainly, this is not
7:04 pm
good news when it comes to this fragile recovery we have seen when it comes to chinese equities awaiting that open. let's get you the first word news with jessica summers in new york. supreme court nominee brett kavanaugh and the women who accused him of sexual assault when they were teenagers will testify next week before a senate panel. the hearing will be on monday after the judiciary committee to hear pressure evidence. it will delay plans for the senate to vote on kavanaugh's nomination on thursday. of the imf is warning that a new deal brexit would have cleared economic cons -- clear economic consequences. christine lagarde says she remains an optimist that recognizes it is possible that without a new trading relationship in the single market. she added that whatever the deal is, it will not be as good. deal, all likely scenario of any deal, will most
7:05 pm
likely lead to a weaker economy. than the economy as it is now. jessica: southern china clearing up after the passage of a typhoon which killed at least two people as it moved into different provinces after battering the philippines, hong kong, and macau. the system has weakened overland. at least 69 people were killed in the philippines and 40 are still missing. elon musk is being sued for defamation by an english paper involved in -- caver. the man a pedophile. the pr stunt had no chance of working, he said.
7:06 pm
global news, 24 hours a day, on air and at tictoc on twitter, powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in 120 countries. i am jessica summers. this is bloomberg. haidi: president trump ratcheting up the pressure on china. he is threatening even more if beijing retaliates. joe sobczyk has the latest on this out of washington. the pretty fierce statement. he said he has enormous respect for president xi. trying to keep up pressure on president xi with these new tariffs. they are at 10% now. that is designed to give u.s. businesses some time to adjust supply chains and the like. they are scheduled to kick up to 25% next year as part of the whole process to keep up
7:07 pm
pressure on china. they have excluded some items from those tariffs including things like smart watches, bluetooth devices, thatren's car seats, and is designed to at least ease some of the way for u.s. consumers, but nonetheless, those impacts are going to be felt in a broad -- in broad areas of commerce for the u.s. it is now brings about half of all chinese imports under these tariffs and, as i said, they are going to be escalating next year to 25%. if there is no breakthrough on the diplomacy front. haidi: i suppose, if you were an optimist, you could say this is starting off with some exclusions. it does not leave any sort of door ajar for these trade talks we heard were in the making. joe: there have been some formal contacts, but not since last month. secretary mnuchin was trying to
7:08 pm
set something up with the chinese government to have some more trade talks. china has indicated so that if a new round of tariffs kim -- though that if a new round of tears came about, they would retaliate with their own tariffs on u.s. imports, things like liquefied petroleum, liquefied natural gas, and aircraft. so there is not a real clear path towards a diplomatic breakthrough. a chancedent will have to see president xi at the end of november in argentina, so that could possibly offer some potential for a breakthrough, but right now, we are sort of at a standstill. shery: we have heard from ubs group saying that even a 10% tariff would slow it enough for the fed to halt its rate hike in december. what are we expecting to the impact on the u.s. economy,
7:09 pm
whether it is on consumers or just the economy as a whole when/if these tariffs are implemented? joe: it will affect u.s. consumers for a wide variety of articles. it also could have some political impacts for the president and his party. they will be hitting about the electionsu.s. midterm are taking place, and as consumers are sort of prepping for the holiday season, that could cause a slowdown. much, i will leave to economists to assess what the impact would be, but it is certainly going to take some bite out of u.s. spending by consumers and raise some costs as well. shery: tell us exactly what these new tariffs are on. we have the u.s. has been insisting that section 301 on intellectual part need that china's treatment of
7:10 pm
intellectual property has been flawed. the that is one of pressures that the u.s. is trying to put on the chinese. it covers pretty much about half of all chinese imports to the u.s., excluding those items and mentioned earlier. byt was part of an appeal some u.s. manufacturers, particularly apple's ceo, tim cook, who was a consultant with the white house, and had done some lobbying to lessen the impact of tariffs. consumersthings that regularly either want to buy or need to buy, such as infant car seats, things like that, as well as good like an apple watch. so nonetheless, it will have sort of a ripple effect across a wide variety of products that u.s. consumers are spending on. they have become quite accustomed to lower prices on it. shery: joe sobczyk joining us from washington.
7:11 pm
diving back into the u.s. markets, jitters over a trade were already caused tech stocks to take a leg lower. su keenan has a wrapup on what we should be looking at now that the new tariffs have been ordered. now, they are out before the markets close. there was an announcement that there would be an announcement. su: typical on wall street. sell on the rumor, buyback on the news. we saw the bulk of the reaction as the market closed. we are now looking at the futures come on which is giving you your secondary reaction. it is negative, as can be expected. there was -- these tariffs have been well telegraphed. what was not completely assured was the recent adjustments that have been made to that original list that came out in july, which does appear significant. let's go to the upper board. you saw during the regular session a very big decline in apple and some of its suppliers. it is very interesting to note
7:12 pm
that a lot of the apple products, the airbus, the smart -- sir buds, the smart watch, have been removed. apple ceo, tim cook, bloomberg is reported, met with the first lady and the president for dinner in august, and this clearly has been a concern of theirs. we talked about bicycle helmets, seats, and also important industrial chemicals were moved, so you may actually some ofsitive result in those stocks because there were concerns. take a look at the other big movers in the regular markets. some of them tied to the tariffs, some not. amazon, netflix, show you a continued decline. of then we have got a lot the pot stocks that are continuing to move as it looks like coca-cola, some of the other spirits industry, very in givingested
7:13 pm
aligned. let's go to the after-hours real quick. we did have fedex come out with earnings that disappointed. we are going into the bloomberg. gtv is where you can find these charts. this one is called hedging tail risk, which is interesting, and this ties to the tariff announcement. the cost of protecting against large swings has jumped here. and that may very much after do with what was anticipated here. you know, this latest trade war i suppose gives gold or reason to finally rally. su: we definitely saw as it looks like we started the day, this was a big issue and it became a big issue later in the day. gold, which look at has been under 1200. it closed above that very important 1200 mark. we go to oil. the situation there has to do with, again, concern about decline and demand offsetting other issues that it has been
7:14 pm
putting oil above the $70 mark in recent matters. remember, the concern is about the iran sanctions from the trump administration but also the drop in demand because of this conflict with the u.s. and china. >> su keenan, thank you so much for that. south korean president moon jae-in heading for pyongyang today with nuclear talks on the agenda. we will be in seoul. >> plus, how the corporate banking sector is dealing with global challenges including this ongoing trade. our exclusive interview with a jpmorgan representative is next. this is bloomberg. ♪ ext. this is bloomberg. ♪
7:15 pm
7:16 pm
shery: this is "daybreak asia." i am shery on a new york. haidi: i am haidi stroud-watts in sydney. it begins in singapore today. they represent a collective market cap of over three point
7:17 pm
five trillion dollars. let's get over to juliette saly, who is with the firm's global head of corporate banking. juliette:- absolutely. we have just been discussing the latest developments in the tit-for-tat trade spat between the u.s. and china. they give so much for joining us. it is kind of exhausting keeping up-to-date with what is happening in the u.s.-china trade relationship, but we have heard the new round of paris will come into effect on september 20 fourth. how do you invest in an unknown environment like this and what do you tell your clients? >> truly heating up, this whole subject, and if it plays out as people fear, it's going to hurt unemployment, the profitability of u.s. companies, but i also think there is a scenario that we are maybe not giving enough credibility to and that is the de-escalation and that there is a reset of the
7:18 pm
trade relationship but that they can continue to do well. ignoring the emerging markets for a little bit, the overall world has been growing. we get overwhelmed by all the headlines in the china trade -- china-u.s. trade dispute. >> you're looking five years to 10 years ahead in terms of your investment strategy, so what areas are you looking at? >> our business will continue to grow because the world will keep growing, and international flows will keep growing. planes.and commercial 48 thousand in 20 years, just an indication of how the world will continue to become more global. that's what we are doing and corporate banking, serving companies with financial needs around the world. we will keep investing. the areas we are doing that predominantly in is our payments business and china. juliette: how do you get china right in this environment?
7:19 pm
sjoerd: you have to lean forward. it is such a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that i think we have to lean forward in terms of investing, so it's about people, it's about capabilities, and just sticking with it. notwithstanding some of the ups and downs that the market may have. juliette: you're based in dubai and we recently saw jpmorgan among the banks that lunch $11 billion -- lent $11 billion. we have seen quite a lot of interest coming through from the banks. it is becoming more typical, i guess, to start to see syndicated loans to sovereign wealth funds. is that going to be a trend we see continued? sjoerd: i do not think we have seen it that much, but you are raisedo say the bif has 11 billion dollars. a lot of banks see saudi as a tremendous opportunity. you talk about a country that's probably there is example like it. it will come with a lot of opportunities. there are a lot of banks that want to play. the bif has a lot of investments
7:20 pm
internationally. they have a tremendous asset base with domestic assets, $200 billion. it makes perfect sense. juliette: what other areas are you looking at? iserd: i think emerging -- in a growth area for us as well. from russia down to south africa, that is a region that may be not talked as much about as asia, for example, but it does include 2 billion people, 70% of thes, 60% to world's oil reserves, so we see a lot of growth. juliette: how worried are your clients? you sound bullish. you were talking about the global growth. how worried are your clients about the headlines, the day-to-day moves we are seeing not only amongst the china-u.s. trade relationship, but also em as well. sjoerd: in the corporate bank, we talked to cfo's and treasurers, and they have to manage the risks they have
7:21 pm
whether it is fx, rates, funding. that is something they have to keep a close eye on. the one that stands out for me is sort of the funding picture and how the capital markets will stay open or not in the various scenarios we may see in this unfolding of the u.s.-china trade dispute. juliette: are you worried about a liquidity crisis? sjoerd: the bond markets broadly have grown tremendously because of quantitative easing. it has gone to 57 trillion. ofis an enormous amount tradable bonds out there. at the same time, the bank community is probably less incentivized and equipped to take risks due to regulations, so you could indeed see a market where people lose faith in there will not be as much of a floor to buy. you see periods where markets strategists,nd for
7:22 pm
it's important to make sure that they are thinking one ahead and are prepared for markets. juliette: we have seen quite a bit of retrenchment. try and get some market share amongst some of the woes of some of your competitors? sjoerd: global banking -- being present globally is a difficult game, and i think we will be one of the endgame winners, but there would be fewer than we would have thought five years ago or 10 years ago because -- s,nnecting the global dot only a handful will be able to do. as mentioned, the thing we need to get right is china but also the payments business. but it's really the plumbing of the corporate world. as banks, we need to plan important role in that. juliette: what is your strategy? sjoerd: it's all about innovation. we are pretty much a technology
7:23 pm
company. we have 250,000 employees globally. we spent $10 billion per year. that does not necessarily mean you are successful. you need to spend it right way, develop the right tools, working hard on that, seeing what our clients need to become an to stay one of the preeminent -- and to stay one of the preeminent businesses. juliette: we have seen jamie dimon had on president trump a few weeks ago. he walked back those comments. what do you think was going through his mind? sjoerd: i cannot comment on what mind.hrough jamie's he is an amazing boss and he led this company for 16 years. it is a company worth $380 billion. he has been an amazing leader and he has made a series of very good calls on this company. very long-term view. for corporate banks, that's very, very helpful. i don't need to explain to him what we're are doing the next
7:24 pm
three months. much for thanks so joining us at the capello hotel on the sidelines. that was sjoerd leenart. shery: juliette saly, thank you so much for that interview, and of course, be sure to tune in all day on bloomberg television for more interviews from the jpmorgan forum in singapore. we will be speaking with the jpmorgan global head of research and the banks asia-pacific ceo. if you want to get a roundup of the stories you need to know to your day going, daybreak is your function. dayb on the bloomberg. the top story today, more u.s. tariffs on chinese imports. of course, you can find the stories on the bloomberg anywhere app. you can customize your settings you get only the stories you care about. this is bloomberg. ♪

7:34 pm
it looks like the rising risk to growth from u.s. protectionism will loom large. it will offer motivation for the boj to shift its stance with inflation still far off from the 2% target. japanese investors will have that policy meeting as well as a lineup of data do this week to consider -- due this week to consider. it is expected to quicken core cpi and expected to rise by .9%. on wednesday, trade data is due as well. export growth expected to have risen to 5.2% while the trade deficit is widening for august. shipments to china from japan are likely to have softened. you can see the rundown of events for japanese investors on the eco-function on the terminal. ahead of this lineup, we have nikkei futures pointing lower, showing you what going on with nikkei futures come off by .4%. the yen is set for a second day of gains on the back of that

7:44 pm
have the chairman and cofounder of hyperloop transportation .echnologies thank you for joining us here. >> thank you for having me. steve: i have to start with the overall umbrella issues that are affecting everyone. you are a u.s. based company out of los angeles. how does this dampen the mood for investment as you have signed an agreement with a chinese company to build out some of the hyperlink technologies here -- hyperloop technologies here? bibop: our technology is so advantageous in terms of ability, that we can actually navigate along with the problem is that this is leading us. in reality, we are here at the forum to announce the first important move for commercialization. we were the first company to have an insurance on the hyperloop system, and today, we announced that we defined with our global partners the 11 countries that we actually
7:45 pm
signed deals with. the framework for regulation -- right now, we have the days to create regulation on the hyperloop system. steve: you have this partnership an inspection company and also on the insurance side. bibop: exactly. this was very important because these are two of the biggest market leaders in the field, and it demonstrates that all the countries, they are working on it already to actually regulate the hyperloop. they are aware in this meeting there were representatives from the u.s., china, ukraine, europe, uae. so all the stakeholders are finally on the table to discuss regulation. steve: how close are we to having some sort of commercial rollout, in china in particular? you have a most recently a companydeal with
7:46 pm
down in the south, which i assume is part of china's belt and road initiative to get transportation links to one of the poor regions of china. bibop: it is one of the most poor regions, but also one of provinces.-growing it is a province that the majority of the chinese tourists in china -- they are very excited because at this moment, we are passing from a theory to actually implementing the first commercial line. we have a complete prototype, infrastructure in france, and we are ready to develop the technology and rollout several accounts. we have 30 commercial lines coming out. steve: what are the biggest challenges? there have been some naysayers, if you will, because of terrorism threats and the cost. how do you overcome these hurdles? bibop: when you look at the technology, actually, the technologies that allow us to overcome this problem, we are already there. we actually integrated technologies that allow it to
7:47 pm
resist 9.2 on the richter scale. we are the safest thing designed on the ground, and hyperloop is so very efficient in terms of costs. we can be extremely more efficient and cheap than anything else in the markets. that means that we are cheaper to build, but most importantly, we are cheaper to maintain. we can recoup the investment and eight to 11 years. steve: what will be the criteria for the victor in the space? you have elon musk, which floated this idea about six years ago, so there is others. the canadian company, a number of different companies, trying to make the standard. the first and original company that brought this technology to the market. we also own the brand hyperloop in 57 countries. because we own the system that actually allows us to basically
7:48 pm
tosume 1/10 of the energy move our capsule, but the real advantage is our model. the partner locally with the best and the brightest companies in mind locally to actually system.t, maintain our so we are licensing technology to existing partners on the ground, and this gives us a very agile -- steve: how do you license to partners on the ground when the technology is so new that they do not have expertise? bibop: we have the expertise and we put together the partners. we teach them how to build it. steve: how about financing? what stage are you in? i know there was a few years ago, you talked about an ipo, but is that too soon? we realized that actually the moment for the ipo is when we have one system up and running. our crowdsourcing model allowed us to actually raise it
7:49 pm
