US ANAList humor: Papa John's Pizza Inc
"After speaking with several large operators and industry contacts, we believe the recent decline in casual dining restaurant segment fundamentals—traffic down 3% to 5% the past several weeks—may be the result of consumers eating more at home amid the current political/social backdrop, which we believe could last through the November election,” KeyBanc analysts wrote in a note published Tuesday, cited by MarketWatch. Diners’ shift to a preference for convenience will benefit pizza delivery businesses like Papa John’s, according to KeyBanc.
“We believe investors’ near-term neutral sentiment towards Papa John’s reflects a ‘missed it’ mentality following a meaningful recovery in its share price since reporting first-quarter results on May 3,” the note said.

mkt seems to think brexit can pass over quickly just because it wants to. it will takes months to work itself into hard data. but for now there is a nasty overhang of short positions that is stopping the pound moving lower and staying lower. once it is worked out and the data starts coming through cable will move lower.

First, no beer and NOW no Big Macs for lack of bread -- "Venezuela’s economy is expected to contract by 10 percent this year according to an estimate by the International Monetary Fund. Inflation could rise as high as 700 percent in 2016. The country’s foreign reserves have fallen to less than $12 billion as it tries to pay down debts."

looser policy will certainly be called for in the monthing months are it will be needed, but think mpc will be looking at markets, seeing relative calm and assuming they can afford to sit tight and hope maybe data catches up to the markets optimist views. thats probably why they may wait. but data is certain to get worse over the coming months. current projects are being rushed through to completion but other than that everything is at a standstill waiting for some indication on how the government is to proceed. so we will go lower over time. id fancy a long ft100/short ft250 even here and short cable 135-138 stop a little abv that range for 120 and poss towards parity.

london red 09:20:11 GMT - 08/03/2016
pull backs are always seen. mkt is well short gbp in any case. once they clear the specs and hard data comes thru it will go on its famed run. may take 6 months to crack 125 but shud see at least 120 but we turn up. brexit will take years. certainly longer than the 2 year timeframe after article 50. thats why they are censored themselves and dont want to trigger early.

what do you think all?
london red 11:54:35 GMT - 08/03/2016
adp tends to be quite stable, doesnt have the swings shown in nfp, so would expect number to be as f/c or slightly firmer. might give a boost for usd to test res vs gbp and euro. but as long as 11318 and 11170 hold then expect status quo range trading.
db would be possible if we dont go up to 135/138. all db will serve is to squeeze specs and allow rm to sell at better levels. so if those better levels already seen, i doubt it will happen, as in, a fully played out db. youd expect some natural sup at those lows so you wouldnt rule out a bounce of some kind. but highs should get lower and lower.

FED’S KASHKARI: I DON’T SEE MUCH INFLATIONARY PRESSURE
then again he couldn't
Unbiased private-sector efforts to calculate the real rate of inflation have yielded a rate of around 7% to 13% per year, depending on the locale--many multiples of the official rate of around 1% per year.
The Social Security system would be revealed as unsustainable if real inflation (7+% annually) were made public.
Global investors might start demanding yields on Treasury bonds that are above the real rate of inflation. If inflation is running at 7%, then bond buyers would need to earn 8% per year just to earn a real return of 1%.
