10:01 pm
yvonne: let's get to our top story. u.s. prosecutors pursuing a criminal case against xiaomi -- huawei. awaiting huawei cfo possible extradition to the u.s. rishaad: let's get the steve engle. we talked about this earlier. how is this story evolving? steve: it is an intensification of the federal prosecution of what is going to be very likely -- she is on of bail in canada awaiting possible extradition. the initial accusations we were hearing was huawei's efforts to defraud banks, to avoid , theions on iran investigation by federal has increased with
10:02 pm
allegations of huawei stealing trade sick its from its own u.s. business partners. one of them would be t-mobile, which stems from a civil case in a seattle civil court in 2017. they found in 2014 it alleged a visiting huawei engineer into their bellevue, washington lab had tipped a robot which tests smartphones. it simulates users, a robotic device. intoently it was snatched a briefcase. this is all in a civil case on record. the jury sided with t-mobile in this case and said the theft resulted in huawei making hundreds of millions of dollars. this is just one case that is part of this federal prosecutor's case that is now said to be imminent.
10:03 pm
some sort of indictment is imminent and the case is edited them stay. yvonne: once again these trade talks get more complicated. we are hearing the u.s. is making a fight with the wto a little more moving forward. steve: they are intensifying that one as well. house, whether it was donald trump or barack obama or china, have long insisted has used to the wto rules that benefit poorer countries to its advantage. they criticized the wto regulations that permit poorer countries to claim development exemptions include from wto disciplines such as farm subsidies. the white house or the u.s. government, i am not sure which agency, but u.s. trade representative's will be at the davoseconomic forum in
10:04 pm
talking about this latest paper that is pushing the wto to do reforms and not let china get away with calling itself a developing poorer nation. engle, our chief north asia correspondent. let's get more on what is going on. we are joined by macro strategist mark cudmore from singapore. we heard another headline about triggered ass market volatility back in december. why could this time be different? i think the whole narrative around the u.s. china trade war has shifted a bit since then. in early december we were uncertain about whether there on u.s.-chinaess trade talks. it was looking like an escalation. it looks like there were heading to 20% tariffs.
10:05 pm
it was like a new branch. we have admin level talks that seems to have been going well. there are other talks scheduled at the end of this month and a lot more optimism around the trade war. it could lead to a pullback in the broad index because we have gains, it isong more likely to be a story that lasts a couple days rather than a couple weeks. rishaad: beyond huawei, what is the outlook for china stocks? what are people feeling about that? i think the narrative is changing much more positive given the large amount [indiscernible] that continues to come through the chinese government. ever since the statement from xi jinping they would show unwavering support for the private sector, we have seen a drip feed of policies. the point is they have continued to emphasize they will stimulate the economy.
10:06 pm
we saw the chinese balance sheet in december surge is the most percentage since january 2016. that reflects the fact china's lending has increased, their tax cuts, they are doing everything they can to support this economy. since october we have seen chinese stocks as globalized performers. i think it is the start of a multiyear trend of china outperforming the u.s. after several years the other way where u.s. stocks were searching around the world. around the world. yvonne: yet we are seeing the s&p breaking above the 2600 level. it had been resistant for months. the question you're asking today, it is about the dovish pause from the fed making these catch a bid. what level in the s&p should we be looking out for now that would put fed hikes on the table? mark: this question came out of
10:07 pm
the u.s. yesterday. my colleague cameron attempted to answer it. i think many people in the u.s. had seen fed policy has been reactive to the stock market and the slump in december. i come at it from a different angle. i think the fed should emphasize they are data-dependent because inflation data was shifting rapidly. oil markets were collapsing. it is true most of the markets seem. to think it is true as the s&p -- markets will see a reaction to the s&p. i think the fed is less concerned where the s&p is trading. said rate hikes will come back on the table for policymakers' point of view. david: they do so much, mark cudmore from singapore. hereg a look at prospects

10:14 pm
the sentiment has improved in recent weeks. we think there are more gains ahead. there are high-level talks at the end of the month in washington between the u.s. and china which could provide a further catalyst for more gains. i think the stability or strength has other implications. it offers room for policymakers in china to continue to ease policy to support growth here. we were talking to jpmorgan china ceo on this very action, about the pboc's and whether regulators will do enough. he is feeling more confidence. >> this year we definitely see a step up with government and regulators. on the fiscal and monetary fund to provide liquidity. i think the dynamic approach will continue and stabilize the continent. rishaad: is confidence
10:15 pm
returning? that is the question i suppose raised by what mark leung said there. i would agree with that statement. that is what i was referring to earlier. time, say 2015 or 2016, policy makers may have been concerned. they would have seen a risk off year, further easing policy. that might lead to currency weakness on capital outflows, but we're not in that environment anymore. we are seeing [indiscernible] at the start of this month. markets took it in stride. they strengthened after that. that is why we think this in sentiment would give more confidence the
10:16 pm
policymakers to continue to for see growth supportive measures. we are calling for another 200 business points with rrr cuts early this year and calling for more fiscal easing. we believe they will be able to support growth in the coming quarters. they continue to slow down in the short-term, but we see stabilization or small recovery in growth outlook in the quarters ahead. yvonne: it is interesting. it plays into where the dollar goes as well. if you look at the long positions in dollar, there are positions in the market looking for long dollar. i see germany, japan may be at risk for recession. china vying for more stimulus. is the long dollar play such a bad idea right now? there are multiple
10:17 pm
things plaguing the dollar right now. failing u.s.-term, growth exceptionalism and rising u.s. deficit is negative for the dollar. we are looking for a catalyst to be sure dollar. a think we have that in the form of a dovish fed. we are turning more bearish on the west dollar. we think softer u.s. yields should be on the dollar. what about the federal reserve? this will be key to read we still have an interest-rate differential taking place. it should be driving money into u.s. assets at least. we have the ecb or bank of japan in no danger of raising their base rates. you are right.
10:18 pm
i am still in favor of the dollar. markets work on a forward-looking basis. it is important to see, where do markets the interest going? that is where things are looking less constructive for the dollar. the fed is seen as shifting in its policy stance from forward hiking to prevent the hitting of the economy. or maybe another one or two hikes if the economy permits it. the fed is clearly toward the end of the fed height in cycles, which i think suggests u.s. yields may be past their peak. the highest conviction call. we think the highest are not going back to 3% in the cycle. we think 10 year u.s. yields will come around 2.75.
10:19 pm
u.s. yields are still too high, given the weakness and inflation expectations. we think that may lead to further dollar downside ahead. one of the plays we saw in 2018, short duration. is that why we reached an inflection point now where that could reverse? mayank: i think you are absolutely right. i think wetion deal, are looking at an inflection broad shift where people are favoring short duration costs. a longple are embracing duration call. we are bullish on u.s. duration, but also turning bullish on duration elsewhere. it is not just a u.s. phenomenon.
10:20 pm
has been slowing down in the rest of the world and that leads to duration elsewhere, too. in emerging markets, dollar has been stable. em currencies can offer rooms for em and central banks to ease policy. we are looking for a rate cut by the bank of india this year. that rate cut may materialize even earlier. atkets may be looking central-bank easing, which can lead to a positive dynamic for the duration in em broadly, especially in high-yield markets. rishaad: [indiscernible] tell me, what is your feeling on this? bank of talking to an ex- japan official. we will bring you his call now.
10:21 pm
>> with the inflation rate remaining low in japan, the yen is on a course to strengthen further. lower thant is ¥10 indicated by the parity. it could go ¥10 higher. then it could be as high as the 80's. i do not think it will reach the 70's, but the 80's is quite likely. [indiscernible] mayank: i am not forecasting 80 on dollar-yen, but i was on that call for japanese inflation. one of the things we have been focusing on when it comes to dollar-yen, it is not just the dollar at play. there's something happening in japan, too. inflation and -- expectations have collapsed. if you look at 10 year inflation in japan, they are down to 25 basis points right now. that has given the bank of
10:22 pm
japan's yield curve control policies a structure. normally it is anchored. dollar-yen is coming under pressure from declining in u.s. and rising in japan. short dollar-yen is one of our highest connection calls. we are forecasting one of five by the end of the year. i would say it is toward the downside. rishaad: not exactly what you might call sticking your neck out, is it? thank you, great talking to you. 80 by the end of the year? yvonne: making it harder for the boj to watch turns. it is beyond their control. another big interview to tell you about. bloomberg, we have interviews with chicago fed president at 4: 10 new york time on friday. do not want to miss that one. this is bloomberg. ♪

some analysts believe it has worked to stabilize the rupiah. they may be done, having raised policy rates six times last year. rishaad: expected to stay on hold. let's bring in barclays senior economist, rahul bajoria. thank you for joining us. it looks like the heat is on them. the president is not going to do anything. rahul: that the current juncture, i think most of the central banks in the region are likely to change their tune over the course of the next couple months as uncertainty around u.s. fed policies clear out, growth is starting to slow down. indonesia is no different in that particular regard. they have been one of the more aggressive early hiking central banks through 2018. given how high really rates are at the moment and where the currency is, the sense is they are done hiking rates. should we expect them to
10:35 pm
start unwinding those rate hikes this year? i think you need a few signals from the data to a march before i can talk about potential monetary policy easing. their current account looks relatively large. their trade balance data over the last three months has been surprising towards the larger deficit. i think the inflation and growth signals are supporting policy easing, but they have been talking about maintaining civility. they are happy with what has taken place the last couple months. in order to preserve that we think b.i. will start to consider monetary policy easing, but that is not likely in the first half of the year. how is indonesia and its monetary policy atmosphere, for wont of a better way of
10:36 pm
describing it, compared to others in the region? i. was one of the more aggressive banks for preserving currency stability. on the other side you have countries like philippines hiking rates because of an inflation problem. rateense is that teh bsp hiking cycle is done and we will not see any further rate hikes from them. they could be one of the first central banks in the region to consider rolling back rate hikes. thailand and malaysia, our senses that malaysia may be one of the candidates for a rate cut. thailand is likely to broadly remain on hold toward 2019. yvonne: plenty of political risk, too. with elections happening in indonesia we are seeing growth
10:37 pm
at about 5%. we are still far short from what the president joko widodo had aimed for, that 7% target. do you see the election results impacting long-term growth in any way? our sense is that despite the efforts of the government, growth has been somewhat disappointing, but you do see momentum in infrastructure investment. you do see inflation coming down quite aggressively over the last five years in the case of indonesia. these are the policy points on which the incumbent president will run. thinkthe elections we do they will be forcing backward growth. how do you divide that? that could mean easing of fiscal and monetary policy in the second half of the year. i think the economic conditions are probably going to be a key driving factor in the elections themselves. rishaad: i want to have a look
10:38 pm
at what is going on as we look at the philippines. a case of a rate hike diminishing. let's take a look at the philippines, thailand and indonesia with this chart an hour library showing where real rates are. the white in the philippines show it is still negative by -0.3%. and in malaysia, 3% or thereabouts. it is instructive. it is a bit of a conundrum, isn't it? in the case of the philippines, that is the only country running negative real rate so far. inflation pressures are diminishing rapidly. we are likely to see real rates turning positive. we expect inflation will drop closer to 4% probably by and of the first quarter of 2019. that will probably provide relief to the central bank to
10:39 pm
think about supporting growth at the margin. it could potentially take the form of rrr cuts before you think of rate cuts. we agree that the current juncture, real rates look higher across the region. at a time when inflation is dropping and growth is rising, more central banks should start to signal a change through the first quarter of this year. last question -- how concerned should we be about chinese growth? forecasting for the weakest number we have seen since 2009. into how you weigh look at the regional side of andgs in aussie on -- asean southeast asia? rahul: that is one of the biggest headwinds the region is facing. our own expectation is that growth will slow down to 6.2%
10:40 pm
for 2019. overall we were getting more constructive when the trade truce came through in november. the latest round of trade data are not encouraging. this should create some headwinds for growth for the region. anotherin will be factor for central banks to start to think a little more about easing monetary conditions going forward. whether that is done through rate cuts or liquidity management, i think it will come down to individual central-bank preferences. , regionalhul bajoria economist from barclays, joining us from singapore. rishaad: facing turbulence amid uncertainty ahead of the mumbai [indiscernible] what on earth is going on? this is bloomberg. ♪

10:44 pm
he could be replaced by his son. there could be a key structural change in the board of directors, which also means it is likely to infuse additional money and investors who seek a change in management. in simple terms, management will have to step down from the chairman position. options what about the jet airways has in front of it? they must be diminishing, i would have thought. if you were called they were in talks with a group. now they are going back to seek a better value for the airline. he is also talking to liquidity partners which own 20%. additionalo infuse
