7:06 pm
or using it for transaction. there is a fair amount of symbolism there, directly targeting the leader of iran. another era tent. they have other targets for sanctions with about 80% of the economy coming under sanctions from the u.s. as the administration tries to clamp -- iran's economy. it is another escalation and the fact -- in the fight. it is sure to be another it your intent and whatever relationship there is. if the intention is to force iran to the negotiating table, will this tactic help? some experts think that this
7:07 pm
is not likely to bring the irradiance -- the iranians to the tape. they have been under sanctions for quite some time and have not yet submitted to any negotiations or talks with u.s. said thereative s.uld be no one-on-one talk shery: a trump administration official saying that the art trying to manipulate u.s. public opinion ahead of the 2020 elections. how exactly would they do this question -- do this? >> they use conventional means. inmate --advertising in newspapers.

7:10 pm
7:11 pm
shery: we have an alert on bloomberg. we're hearing from the trade we knowtative office
7:12 pm
that president trump and president xi jinping our meeting on the sideline of the g20. the u.s. and china are discussing arrangements for the meeting. we have not heard of a specific date for when it will take place. markets have been a leading the g20 and what could come out of those negotiations between president trump and president xi jinping. looking for lower interest rates. su keenan is here with more on the latest moves that we saw in today's sessions. su:su: pretty volatile. what was -- su: investors looking ahead to an action-packed week.
7:13 pm
notice the dollar below a key level on friday. you are noticing the treasury almost 58.ropped futures relatively flat going into the tuesday session. let's take a look at some of the big movers. reaction to bernie sanders. a democratic front runner and one of the top contenders on the mechanics side. he wants to make college free for americans. it was not well-received on wall street. merger.ting the getting ready -- getting rid of a key drug.
7:14 pm
notice it getting a boost. beanalyst thought this would helpful for sales. white is shows us, the the broadest measure of the market. since not hit a high august 2018. this normally foretells a negative downturn for the s&p, but not yet. they are monitoring, but it does not necessarily play out poorly, just yet. pretty of action on the commodities front. the relic of gold is having its moment in the sunshine again. realhe gold rush is according to the latest data. let's go back into bloomberg.
7:15 pm
the gold etf with the biggest inflow on record. inflow. is above 1400. it had its biggest close and a lot of funds piling in. oil is also reacting in a different way. it was higher on a lot of the conflict, but brent crude was lower. are concerned about the supply outlook. we might see supplies creeping up. we had one big mover after hours. su: deborah information about its skin treatment. it is a lot better than 14%.
7:16 pm
a lot of anticipation year. now, great to us have you with us. let's talk about what we can expect. investors are pricing in 100% cut when it comes to the july fed meeting. what are year expectations, given that they are pricing in more dovish banks around the world? >> it has been aggressively priced in cuts by the fed. he talked about expectation for july. 85% showed that there will be a second rate cut. there is a chance for a third rate cut in december. they might disappoint some. cuts asviews the rate an insurance against deteriorating situation. inflation gives them the perfect
7:17 pm
out. and declining, as we speak. will wait and watch on the third one. we know how quickly trade issues can change. they can change on a dime or a tweet. shery: not to mention a rocky g20 meeting could also force the fed to move faster. >> but by the same token, i think the market has come to grips with the whole idea that unlike in the first quarter of 2019, they are clear. there will be no magical resolution of the trade war. this will be a long drawn, protracted situation.
7:18 pm
the stakes have changed. this is no longer about trade imbalances. just get used to it. the market is looking for incremental process -- progress. gradually making their way. i do not think we will have resolved the really sticky issues of intellectual property and transfer of technology, but we will wait and see. if it does drag on for years, if not decades, what does that mean for the global economy? seen the yield curve invert a couple times. this chart that we have on small caps and transport proving quite reliable
7:19 pm
in the past and it comes to predicting bad times. what do you see the odds of a recession as? in five or squeezing six questions in that preamble, but let me take them quickly, one at a time. the market will have to get used to these flows. there will be bouts of risk on and risk off. becausepected returns valuations are quite full. this has huge implications. in terms of whether this continued back-and-forth will actually precipitate a recession , i do not think so. let me focus on the u.s. for just a moment. we know that the economy is driven by the consumer. is so much good news on
7:20 pm
this front. all of the vatican ups and downs, the jobs, data notwithstanding, we are averaging over 150,000 new jobs per month in 2019. income is rising. unemployment is at a low. consumer confidence is high. it is so hard to imagine that in the backdrop, there is a recession around the corner. even more comprehensive data of economic activity. i will resort to the purchasing manager index. manufacturing is at 52. healthy -- it is a very 66. the composite is around 54, consistent with the growth rate. hard to see a recession.
7:21 pm
paul: we have seen gold performing well, so why is it catching a bit? because it is anti-? -- willollar will begin be beginning. central-bank has now agreed or indicated that they will do whatever it takes to keep the expansion going. --they get a good result this is a strictly lateral issue. if this somehow gets resolved, you will see a pickup in global growth. gets s where the dollar weak. -- will see more economic
7:22 pm
economically cyclical sectors. emerging markets, value stocks. they will begin to go up and i do not think that is the backdrop that goes very well. issuede remains a chronic , the tariffs will trigger inflation. the trade war will suppress economic activity. with inflation and strong is a veryelays, gold attractive safe haven and that could be the backdrop for gold to continue its line. shery: if that happens and u.s. economy starts weakening, are investors going to be looking to trump constantly
7:23 pm
being focused on the level of the equity market? work here.two that think it came into play. it was about three weeks ago at this point with chairman powell, where he made a statement that he would act to save the economy. the effect on the market is june. it is mainly based on that one statement. tied to the election cycle. president trump needs a strong economy and a continued bull market to enhance his chances of reelection. to let the trade issues linger on may not promote that outcome. he has an incentive to put an end to it. there is a wildcard scenario. if he goes with the trade war
7:24 pm
tend toed, people rally. if you were to ask me a binary yes or no question, i would say yes. notink it does get resolved to everybody's satisfaction, but there will be a trade deal that will be a compromise. it will talk about intellectual property. trade imbalances will get rectified. that seems to be the most likely scenario. shery: we will know where we are headed in a few days. thank you for joining us. we will have an exclusive interview in the early hours of wednesday. we will bring you -- we will

7:34 pm
expectation that they will come at the g20, but what they will probably decide on is a past -- a path forward. shery: remember when the president lifted a ban because of xi jinping's request? could there be a similar move this time around? >> there are a lot of similarities between this meeting and the last, when they agreed on a temporary truce. those talks have broken down and here we find ourselves again. trump is using that maybe he could go easier on huawei as part of a trade deal. the talks are directly part of a negotiation. is a justice department
7:35 pm
issue and an issue of it being added an entity list. trade negotiations are something entirely separate. if presidentto see xi jinping asks for reprieve and whether president trump will grant it. , is the terms of huawei genie out of the battle -- the bottle? some members of congress may not be keen on concessions when it comes to huawei. how can president trump climbed down from that rhetorical position he has built? being assue of huawei security threat has been on the minds of a lot of people for a long time. if president trump asked down, he could get a lot of pushback
7:36 pm
from people in his own party, and from other lawmakers. i think these are long-standing concerns against huawei. invest inw them to our infrastructure in the states, it could be compromised. these are long-standing to learn that have been brought up. there are other restrictions. it would be hard to imagine how donald trump could justify it, but we saw him backing down from sanctions last year in exchange for them shaking up their management and little more management. shery: thank you so much. joining us from l.a. one way to find out where the money is going is to watch etf. rise, large-cap with the

8:06 pm

no decisions have been made before the meeting. i believe that is due to happen in the early part of july or the first week of july. they struggled to reach an agreement about want to have the meeting. until we get it in ink that the production cuts will be extended, i think the market will be uncertain. there can be more volatility. what is clear is that the saudi's will be pushing hard. my guess at the moment will be that they will ultimately succeed in doing that. confirmed, they will be volatility. paul: there are a lot of things driving the oil price at the moment. what else are you watching at the moment? james: that is right. has been discussed, the highlight in japan will be how trump and xi get on. in the immediate term, that will

google get hit? will it be japan -- who will get hit? will it be japan? other markets around asia? jingyi: there are a lot of hopes in the market. the market is seeing a lot of repeats. in may, we had weakness in the market and then after the market, an institute came through from the g20. in a sense, they are trading a little bit more to the favor of the central banks. i think that in the sense, the we are doing a little too much. ones thate are the could actually be the ones that can see a little bit more of the adjustments.

8:20 pm
i think this is something worth watching at this point. the market does seem to see some psychological resistance at this point. i want to get your -- paul: i want to get your opinion on gold. do you see more upside? i'm glad you mentioned this. this is one of the surprises we are seeing. this could be a full on makeup from the trade war. what we have is the expectation for the federal reserve. a formal shipped coming through expecting the u.s. dollar to weaken. the gold price is shooting up.

war were on, this narrative to buy china tech is really escalating. they were trying to revamp these industries and connect them to the internet. when you think about the data that could be involved. that is why all of these companies are thinking about whether they should replace oracle and ibm with this company. >> tell us about this company that has no become the plan be in china. lulu: if you look at their database manager, you might wonder what that actually means. from everything from ride-hailing location to user transaction numbers and user for financial institutions, all of that data can be stored on the database and traditionally, oracle and ibm have rarely dominated the
8:35 pm
space. right now, a cohort of chinese startups, they are all looking at them and saying maybe we should be migrating some of our data to this database. one thing that is going for them specifically, that is traditional database managers. you can think of them like water cap. you would have to replace them with a large container. what pink cap is specializing in his database servers. you can link as many cups as you want together. cost efficient way to save money for startups. that is why they are learning so many chinese startups. paul: how competitive is this industry? lulu: it is really competitive in the sense that open source databases are really trying to

abandon the industry that has been dominated by oracle and ibm. pingcap is trying to compete with many others. their competing with many u.s. founded open source databases. competitive.his is they don't start generating long towardl very establishing themselves in the industry. they will be more prone to work with pingcap as an experiment and helping them establish successful case studies. his would make --
8:37 pm
>> to answer those questions, this is our chief economist, tom. questions, how much has this cost so far? the trade war has been going on for over a year now. how much could it cost if president trump goes ahead and puts 45% tariffs on all of the chinese exports into the u.s.? what have you found? those are indeed the questions. to answer the first one, we look at a very granular and this aggregated data fair on u.s. imports. what we found was that around 26% of chinese sales to the u.s. in the tariff categories have disappeared. there has been a very significant drop in chinese exports to the u.s. in the
8:38 pm
categories where president trump imposed those 25% tariffs. my answer to the second question, what is the outlook? that is more difficult. that involves forecasting. what we have done is plugged the tariff shock into a large scale model of the global economy. if we havels us is an escalation, if we see tariffs go to 25% on all bilateral trade , eventually is a market shock, we would be looking at a blow to global gdp in 2020 and 2021. paul: are there any countries benefiting from all of this? from the we can tell very granular u.s. import data is if there have been any diversions, any revert things of
8:39 pm
supply chains.f made in china is very difficult to replace. china is really big. they are great at producing things with demanding specifications. there is no one that can quickly fill the gap. for some products and countries, there is a slightly more nuanced story. we are seeing exports from taiwan, korea, vietnam in those categories that faced tariffs, they are rising pretty sharply. when we think that suggests is supply chains started to adopt, starting to work around china to keep goods flowing into the u.s. market. year, there was a warning of a economic current coming down. what are your expectations given that we are just ahead of the
8:40 pm
g20 meetings this week? >> a striking phrase. that economic iron curtain fall in between china and the u.s.. if we go back to the buenos aires g20 bank at the end of 2018, president trump and president she sat down -- president xi looked at each other in the eye. tariffs stayed on hold. as we approached the g20 of osaka, that is the best we can hope for. enough theot been negotiation between the two sides. there has been no contact at the official level. trump and she -- xi our meeting. offon't see tariffs coming but we won't see them going up either. shery: thank you so much for joining us. bloombergom,

will the spring iran to the negotiating table #is is it just as likely to have the opposite effect? >> they were the only work if they are multilateral. you need a strong coalition behind you. the u.s. approach has been unilateral. there were lots of people outside of iran. paul: can you explain to us the u.s.m between europe and on the nuclear deal? roblem? the u.s.'s p >> that is what everybody is asking. president trump said it was a bad deal. why is that? i think there are two aspects. president obama had negotiated that and president trump really wants to get rid of any legacy that president obama had and the other issue is i think he is very confident that he can get a better deal. the problem is that iran was
8:45 pm
abiding by this. they do see any need to renegotiate a deal that they were complying with. >> we have been seeing some conflicting signals coming out of the white house. president trump tweeting today questioning america's interest in the region, talking about how china gets 91% of its oil here. many other countries likewise. why are we protecting this region. -- region? time, the president is applying sanctions on iran. what does this tell us about the strategy that the white house is employing here? >> the question of whether there is a strategy seems to be incoherent at the moment. mixed signals are being sent. i think that is a reflection of the lack of good procedures and

positive element in washington. we have theand, president saying that there is no conditions. -- iranyear ago, i ran said no vision change. the john bolton has been heavily forward about that regime change. he has taken money to speak at iranian opposition groups. it is this lack of coherence that makes it difficult for this maximum pressure campaign to work. shery: would it make sense to see what happens in the 2020 elections in the u.s.? rodger: they have a few options at the moment. iny have fired a few shots terms of the attacks on shipping in the strait of hormuz.

8:48 pm
the thresholds they don't want to breach. the one thing that is really in their favor is the lack of coherence or multilateral coalition against them. if they were try to announce it, if they were to try to gain nuclear weapons, i think we would see that coalition coalesce. i think that is too far for the iranians. there is no need for it for them at the moment. they can continue to turn up the temperature in small increments to gain attention and the next political move. in terms of political moves, president trump has offered unconditional talks. why should the iranians be resistance to that? rodger: two aspects. they say that there is nothing to talk about, we have signed the agreement, we have done all the talking that needs to be done. visited ander abe
8:49 pm
said we will not talk to president trump because we don't trust him on -- trust him. on the one hand, he said he wants to talk. just prior to prime minister abe arriving, there was the announcement of sanctions on the petrol industry. it is this notion of mixed messages. the iranians see no incentive. they have nothing to negotiate with. they can't trust washington's ability to deliver. paul: thank you very much for that. don't forget, interactive tv function tv , you can watch us live and catch up on past interviews and dive into any of the securities or bloomberg functions. we can also become -- you can also become part of the conversation. you can check this out at tv , this is bloomberg. ♪
