1:10 am
its policies. the estimate for that number come at 0.3 percent. a 10th of a percentage point declining from december. we will be watching that number closely. one of the backdrops of for all of these reports is how many of the other more nontraditional at.ures will we be looking increasingly under the trump administration. trump and his treasury how many have said we need to expand the view of the unemployment rate. look at folks who have stopped looking for jobs because they cannot find one or who are only part-time. we will be bringing you those numbers as well. the labor participation force stands at 62.7%. let us introduce our guest for this morning. david boeing. welcome to the show. president trump's first jobs report today. the focus will be on the headline number, sub 200,000.

that it will be about wages. a lot of states have raised their wages. massachusetts, up 10%. california, up 5%. >> the focus everywhere. all of the central banks what is theth equilibrium unemployment rate. in u.s., a fairly robust recovery. unemployment has fallen and wages are picking up. the fed in that sense is looking to see if it needs to raise rates. your the donald trump affect coming in on the fiscal side accelerating the monetary tightening coming through. inflation report from the bank of england came through yesterday. unemployment and wages, particularly wages. anna: interesting to see how the politics will play out. inhave seen a big uptick what was medium-size business
1:12 am
confidence in the u.s. did that go on to create more hiring. ken donald trump claim responsibility for some of these short-term hirings? he has been very vocal on measures of unemployment and how they underestimate. he wants to reset that conversation. an argument -- underemployment. people who want to work. people who want to be in full-time work. people who have dropped out of the labor market altogether and want to get back in. maybe these numbers are not quite right. the proof in the pudding is wages. the odd thing about january in particular is wages get reset in january in those countries quite significantly. let a minimum wage affect coming
1:13 am
through in some states but january is always a difficult month. it is the year on year comparison that often matters. the central bank is looking particularly at the labor market and wages. manus: eight or 9 million people potentially are out for more jobs. be small business it is going to be the highest since 2006. what he said on the campaign trail was about fiscal stimulus and spending on infrastructure. this is where it could wade through as well. driving the broader context. david: you had these central banks trying to get away from unusual measures in terms of quantitative easing. she is overtime contracting and they want to go back to life as normal so this is a good thing.
1:14 am
the small companies -- that is where all of the action is. companies lead large out of recession. and the equity market has rallied further. you have confidence coming through. but we do not know. at the end of the day, the u.s. was recovering, it was surprisingly on the upside and there was momentum there. anna: i am struck by the number of conversations recently that suggested wages are the key. and it seems to be a case of distinguishing between inflation that is really something the central bank can react to and inflation -- it makes you wonder if wage targeting is on the radar. what they are really saying -- what they are really focused on is inflationary pressure.
1:15 am
covers the fact that wages are a key component. if you go back to 1960's, britain woods, wages were much lower, and inflation was lowered. we do not know if we are going back to this new world. far can unemployment declined before wages take off? in the u.s., getting to that point. the bank of england revised down its view of unemployment rates peoplen so, you have talking about it being below four. anna: i knew i asked the right person. briefly,oductivity -- productivity is coming off a low base. if you want to think of it in those times. how does that play in on the economic level? david: it is true everywhere. look at the eurozone, the u.k.,
1:16 am
the u.s. productivity zone has been disappointing. the bank of england has revised down their view of productivity. but this is simply because they now believe that people want to work more hours per work. there was a view that in some cases, people were working very long hours to make ends meet. the bank has changed its view. overtime, productivity growth will be lower. that is interesting. if we are having the debate here in london, the u.s. is in the lead in is as. what we are seeing there will come through our policy as well. you, t well david -- thank david so much. john williams joins bloomberg later today.

1:21 am
reading since september. what is the pboc trying to do? with this little bit of tightening we are seeing? good morning. a surprise move. the pboc went straight into market this morning with the tightening and it was a wake-up call. they are still looking at a tightening narrative. this is not your typical benchmark. is tightening liquidity. it says that the pboc has reached a point where they are confident enough to start reigning in the credit sloshing around out there. they hit the government globe -- growth target. now they are focusing on political change. the central bank now make have a little bit of room. that is the central message from
1:22 am
today. it is not aggressive tightening but it is a symbolic move by the pboc that they are moving away from easing. manus: some lines coming in. stamping the numbers. the pboc raised the overnight rate to 3.1% from 2.7%. theserming a lot of numbers. i -- pmi data. it was not a roaring success but it was still above 50. the factories shut down for the week for the holiday. people were not necessarily worried about january pmi. the bottom line is that the japanese manufacturing sector has restored.
1:23 am
space than a better they were. it is less about where we are at the moment and what kind of year is the chinese trading community heading into. we know that donald trump has talked about putative tariffs but we do not know how severe or be.spread that will that will be key for chinese manufacturing and its export center. things are broadly stabilized. it is more about the unknown factor which is the donald trump factor. anna: thank you very much for your thoughts. david a win is still with us. -- david o and is still with us. it is gone away kind of quietly.
1:24 am
meanwhile, we wait to see what donald trump has to say and that will be the key factor for china. david: protectionism -- will there be a terrorist war going forwards. -- a tariff war going forwards. what ist quite know going on. and we see these concerns out thee about the liquidity in system and corporate debt being very high and the bank's exposure. ofna has to grapple with all these issues. and then you have donald trump and the fed raising interest rates. will be a very interesting but difficult year for policymakers. it is interesting to see the market reaction in the interest rates. the market reaction to the pboc and what it has done. this is a one-year interest-rate swap.
1:25 am
the world is shifting gears in terms of its rate perspective. does that concern you from a global perspective? the china shift? to a: if it led significant problem in china that would be a problem. to see is theying deflation of any bubbles in china at the same time as the u.s. is having to raise interest rates as its economy is coming out of a long period of hibernation. that is a big issue for many other countries. how much exposure they have to dollar dominated debt. we just do not know. we are walking an interesting tight rope. the bank of japan still wanting to keep rates on the floor. anna: watching the bank of japan. they had the yen and the japanese market this morning. the schedule to operation did
1:26 am
not manage to impress the markets and control yields the way they wanted so they came in with an unscheduled operation suggesting they are more serious than anyone not about controlling the yield curve and not letting the rates get any higher. david: they want to keep the rates down. if the japanese economy was suddenly to reignite to come at the bank of japan would be quite happy with the jgb yield rising overtime. but at the moment, we are not there. a want to ensure that they reach it. years of had many disappointing growth. they want to get out of it. and that is what they are trying to do. manus: escape velocity and animal spirits. anna: honda was basing its numbers on the fx markets. david, thank you very much. to talk tore going

1:43 am
the system are not held by asian investors particularly post the original part of the crisis, 2012. a lot of the behavior in the --ket is driven by what asia asian investors are holding. it is a litmus test. and it is an issue for the ecb. with italy in particular, bond yields have been moving higher. and going through this year, at some point, we will have more discussion in europe about tapering. and the ecb cannot taper because of the pressures. anna: and because of the brexit risks as well. the ecb not tapering for a long time. can imagine the ecb still purchasing bonds in 2019.
1:44 am
that is a perfect world. best case scenario. at the moment, these things are coming together which means the ecb may not even be in position to taper next year. to a certain -- extent, the bank of england is and holding with the european central bank carney cannot raise rates, it has an inflation problem and the ecb cannot raise rates because it has a brexit problem. david: the ecb has been buying aggressively since 2015. if the market in up believe that there was a breakup story out there, we have italy trading at 50 basis points over germany, france 25 basis points below germany. we can see tension coming back into this system and that is even with all of the buying. and we are seeing eurozone recovery. anna: good place to leave it.

number earlier this morning. that is the view in asia today. back to you. manus: thank you for the roundup there. let's turn back to the breaking news we have had in the past 30 minutes. president trump will halt what is called the obama administration regulation that requires advisers to work in the best interest of their clients. a reviewmp will order of dodd-frank, enacted in response to the 2008 financial crisis. joining us on the phone's chris wheeler. on bankingce to have sector. thank you for joining us. what is your initial response to this, ordering a review of dodd-frank? we thought he would take out regulation from the financial services sector. chris: he has talked about this in the past. doesuestion is, what form the reform take? because clearly, one thing we can be sure about is this testing mechanism put in effect by dodd-frank has made the u.s.
2:09 am
banking system extremely strong. with that? tamper what will he do at other factors, the vulcan role is being discussed. the result in the dodd frank act. it is what part they attack. manus: what is going to win him the most amount of votes in america and support in dodd-frank if he goes after. loosening up on trading or do you think regulation has hit its peak in terms of capital requirements? chris: i think a lot of talk -- this goes back a few years ago, talking about nobody is lending money when people didn't want to borrow it after the crisis. it is the same in the u.s.. this concept of stopping people lending. loan closures have been slow. i think it is a sign they want to lighten up the regulation. again, i touched on the falcon role, largely trading has a big impact on the liquidity of day
2:10 am
to day trading. mentioned at the beginning, that is important. you can't sell your clients the best products, you have to seldom the cheap this. -- cheapest. but if they want to do something alongside dodd-frank and there has been talk of upping the capital at the same time as they loosened regulations. this something that increasingly separates the regulatory environment of u.s. banks versus european banks? is this something that like to fire under u.s. banking, equities versus the european peers? stocks have been trading up this afternoon because while we know this is coming, when you have an announcement, people say it is going to be positive for banks. jamie dimon made the point that all of this talk about making the banks less complex in terms of regulation, they have done all that work.
2:11 am
why dismantle that? the most important thing is to stop further facility on what banks can do. capitale dominating markets globally and will continue to do so. there are already in a good position. it is whether they up the ante on capital for lightning regulation. that is what they have been talking about, two prominent republicans. first great to take your take. that is chris wheeler from atlantic equities. now, back to the number of the day. the jobs number. the first under president trump. out a little later this morning. let's bring in stephen mackler -- stephen macro smith from j.p. morgan. great to have you with us. two diverse interests. technology, you are hot to jobs. are fed up with people talking about a trump trade. i am paraphrasing, but you said the ignition for renewed
2:12 am
enthusiasm was already there, so the foundation today will be his first jobs report. what is important to you today and this week? i think the most important release is the pmi in europe. they indicated things are still improving. satisfactory. everything we are seeing in bond markets and inflation swaps, picking up as well. i think that is the most important thing for us. anna: when you look at what is happening in the united states, partshave been upsetting to silicon valley. a lot of fallout between the two. just looking at his plans as we know them so far, what is it that he is doing that is going to have the most impact on the universe that you look at? is it around immigration or other policies? mark: i think the most headline
2:13 am
grabbing policy is around immigration. in terms of these companies getting this how it that they require -- talent they require. when they announced we are not going to see as much of an issue as the market first thought, it is all about deregulation with trump. in the case of technology, people have been talking more about regulation. on some of the -- some of the big tech names last year, amazon, facebook, broke down 10% after trump was elected. i think the regulation will be light touch. manus: from ceo level, the stage is set for -- i am being generous, -- a moderate level of confrontation at this juncture. they are not bedfellows at the moment, are they? there are no bedfellows in trump's process at all.
2:14 am
he is very adversarial. is not going to want to up step back, though. anna: coming back to the s, where side of thing are you focused in europe at the moment in terms of your equity strategy question mark saying europe is undervalued compared to the united states. stephen: europe is trading at a discount. part of the european profitability, it has been unsatisfactory for seven years. fueling earnings reception. financials were under pressure, then you have commodities and energy. at the moment, we see a relatively sustained recovery across the world. you are seeing a pickup in growth in emergency mark -- emerging markets. good background
2:15 am
for profitability. we think profitability can recover and therefore, we are trying to play that to areas of the market we expect economic growth. classically cyclical the quiet you have the cyclicals outperforming relative to defense, down 8%. cyclical on a turn higher. does that perpetuate question mark is not already pricing in -- pmi question mark question mark -- >> if you look at where that came from. whichs the point at cyclicals and financials start to move. shows sustainable pickup in growth. i think trade will have further to run. people will wait. anna: thank you so much. mark will stay with us and we will talk more about the
2:16 am
technology sector in just a moment. we do want to bring some breaking news for viewers. we have news coming out of the french market. this operates at power solutions forpany generating electricity in france. they say france will subscribe to the 2.5 billion euro reserves capital increase. getting more information about the capital increase coming through this morning. manus: let's see what else we have for you in terms of the business flash. sophie is standing by. sophie? president trump a halt and obama administration regulation that requires retirement advisors to work in the best interest of their clients while the new administration reviews the rules. the president will also review dodd-frank rules in response to the 2008 response -- crisis. around noon eastern

2:18 am
biggest markets, the u.s. and china. the company says operating a 6.9it will probably rise to billion dollars in the fiscal year. an increase of 21% from an october forecast. this projection can be clouded if protectionist u.s. trade policies raise costs. uber ceo travis kalanick is stepping down from president afters advisory council criticism from customers and drivers. colonic's participation sparked backlash after the immigration order. isonic says immigration vital to the u.s. and its companies and would get in the way of advocating for just change on immigration. that is your bloomberg business flash. manus: thank you very much, sophie. this snap, the creator of -- the app snapchat lost $550 million last year. that is according to the ipo perspective company.
2:19 am
manus: it is hoping nonvoting members will focus on its division for the future. good to have you with us, mark. here is the latest offering. snapchat, $3 billion. believe in my future and make a half $1 billion loss, but i want your money. would you give? i obviously need to see more of the detail. we have had information over -- out overnight. there are clearly a number of concerns as far as i'm concerned. when you look at it compared to facebook or twitter, it stacks up more like a twitter than a facebook. it is interesting that -- we look at facebook at the same , ite of evolution in 2009 was doing two or three times the growth rate snap is doing and was profitable. one of the biggest concerns is
2:20 am
the lack of profitability. itss almost mirroring revenue and loss. 5 million in revenue, 5 million in losses. at this point in the investment cycle, investors don't like that. snap has been benefiting from a funding environment over profitability. does that change is to mark -- change? very public markets are unforgiving as far as profitability is an can -- is concerned. about a year and half ago, fireeye, similar profile. stock 20%.ed missed the market is not happy with companies that lose money at the moment. overnight,on numbers you see growth, growth, growth. operating income will be quarter
2:21 am
to $900 million less than it was a year ago. he is going after revenue growth and is spending more money on capital expenditure. at the expense of profitability, is that a warning sign to you? what do you make of that last night? mark: i'm less concerned. they are profitable, generating lots of cash. that is key. they don't need to draw on capital markets to grow. they can do it from their own cash resources. for me, amazon is the leading disruptor among tech companies at the moment. a few weeks ago, everyone was talking about alexa, artificial intelligence. that was the product. the box you can talk to. it will solve all your problems, manus. important to examine it in that context and look at not just as a retailer. it is dominated by the web
2:22 am
services business and the third-party retail business. providing a platform for other retailers, not just its own first party business. anna: i am interested in the role of india, because we see amazon talking about india and the opportunities. a continued to push into that frontier for amazon. and we have a story on the bloomberg about apple announcing production facilities in india. market --big frontier this is a big market that they want to get into. apple is not as big player as they want to be and yet, as is a time when politically, these businesses are being encouraged about growth in the united states. how do they manage that temptation of india, with the political reality at home? fine balance. india will be a huge market, but it will take a long time to develop. a lot longer than china. it will be longer before we see indian consumers buying smartphones in the way they do in china. at the same time, have got to balance the requirements and
2:23 am
needs they put on them by the company minister should. amazon announced it would create 100,000 jobs in a mirror -- in america. there balancing both sides. manus: you mentioned china. and .9 billion unique users. 700 million of those happened to be in china. a couple of issues at play. one is the china effect on facebook. two. have we hit peak mobile advertising revenue for facebook? discuss. mark: taking the last point first. absolutely not. the global advertising market is a $600 billion market. if we x out of china, it is about five -- $5 billion. china has almost half of the internet population on its platform. , the is ability to target effect is so strong it can take
2:24 am
a bigger share. it is not about whether facebook and grow by another 50%, it is about how it can grow or three or four times as much as it is. anna: it feels like part of the establishment, you say it is hardly started. mark: the sequential growth in monthly users of facebook is faster than snap stat -- snapchat. passionate is a call. the next thing for facebook is -- if we are going to go three or four times, have we got to be prepared, if you are an ambassador to say, he's going to spend a lot of money on artificial intelligence, growing the next big thing. what is he going to do, what is facebook going to do to become the all-consuming, all content. what is he going to be spendi ng? spending are already
2:25 am
lot of money and still having 64% margins. .hey could probably have 85% it is a balance. i think the respect their investors, they balance the need of growing the company against the needs of the investor base, perhaps more than they give -- get credit for. hugecan afford to spend a amount of money given their size, without necessarily ending profitability too much. anna: has the faith news stories -- fake news stories stuck to them? has that gone away? mark: honestly, i think it is a sideshow. it is impossible to vet every news story. in terms ofk at it the number of stories that get put up or the number of tweets in the case of twitter, you can't vet that. it is just part of doing business. manus: are you is bullish on apple? apple.'m less bullish on
