as you can see, this s&p index but no pain decreases. which measures leisure versus just a short cliff. retail at the highest level labor markets do not clear because nobody likes a pay leisure outperforming retail cut. since 2011. essentially, millennials for the if a problem with economics that we have to get used to. big consumers driving more plane tickets -- it turns out that people like to take care of each other. and restaurants and dining and downward nominal wage not so much on things like sweaters and coats. we are 90 minutes into the trading session in the u.s., i rigidity. brendan: i'm going to name that want to head to the markets desk where ramy inocencio has the my garageband. latest.

we are going to stop immigration, we are going to be much tougher on china, other supposedly exporters who are dumping goods. he said to apple, you have to make your devices in the u.s., rip out your supply chain. i hardly see that is positive for markets. he is not a consensus george bush, ronald reagan republican under any circumstance. betty: i think what you said right at the beginning is key, what his he going to be like if he got into office and he has to deal not just with himself but with congress and with the supreme court. we could see a different side, a much tempered side. it seems like a lot of investors are very cautious, particularly given what has gone on in china, the uncertainty around the fed. we have a chart that shows investors are piling up on companies that have a lot of
earnings, essentially a sturdiness with their earnings. earnings are resilient to global headwinds. does that tell you, is that a bearish signal that people are cautious and want to go into more solid companies with good earning momentum, maybe not the high-growth stocks? stephen: defensive strategies are certainly what we have been what you areand mentioning, that will secure the market. i happen to believe we are in a proper bear market. it is a national phenom -- a natural phenomenon, and we should not always be surprised. historically, there markets in the u.s., if you look at the average, have been around 37%. on that basis, we have a long way to go. mark: your calls are looking fairly pressing it that you made in december -- precedent that
you made in december. interest you call 115. 2%.ear u.s. treasury, the market saying later to. #-dollar 150. dollar: the call on the >> it is noon in new york, 5:00 is that the u.s. economy will weaken off quite a lot, and investors are positioned very lightly on the euro so there p.m. in london, and 1:00 a.m. and hong kong. >> welcome to bloomberg markets. would be a tendency to rebalance that trade. toy the s&p, i would like ♪ step back and look at some of the information that came out last week. we had earnings of two great american companies, two companies that lead their industries. >> from bloomberg world there is no question their balance sheets are completely robust. headquarters in new york, good monday afternoon. >> here's what we're watching at they will sell a lot of products and make a lot of money, but in this hour. both of those cases, the earnings were very disappointing. investors want

could a deal look like on the refugee crisis between germany and greece? he put the money on the table and said, if there is a debt write-off perhaps greece will take control and. any more refugees going forward into northern europe. it is an interesting viewpoint and i'm afraid i do share his point, that the politics do affect the monetary side. mark: will the eu acquiesce to david cameron? try and hammer some kind of compromise out? stephen: i think they will have to. the question is, will it be enough for the british voter and will they see through the migration crisis and run scared. that is a substantial risk. say? the fedfed said absolutely nothing and more or less repeated the december statement. some people felt, we need the fed put. the fed will allude to or make
some nuanced, that the game has changed in the sense that the economy has slowed down. they did not do that, and that makes me concerned. has the fed backed themselves into a corner? they raise rates and have to justify that now and say, we are right, the economy is strong enough, and maybe they got that wrong. mark: stephen isaacs, chairman of the investment -- more after the break. ♪
