Florida coronavirus cases rise 5.6% vs 5.8% seven-day average

Florida coronavirus data published July 3, 2020 (date updated as it's reported): US stock futures dipped on this data and S&P 500 futures are down 20 points. It's slightly below the 7-day average but it's still extreme on its own, at nearly 10000 cases for two days running. Yesterday had looked like a bit of an outlier but if we get another few days near 10K or more, it will look more like a trend.

ECB's Knot: Structures in Europe are not yet ready for euro bonds

Comments from Knot I love the phrasing of this line. It's like the United States of Europe are inevitable in the minds of the elites; it's just a matter of getting the people 'ready' for them. The European leaders are so high-minded about the rest of the world but they would never dream of putting ideas like collective debt to a vote, because they don't really believe in democracy.

UK PM Johnson on Brexit: We need to get a good deal

Comments by UK prime minister, Boris Johnson - We are not remotely being disrespectful to the EU - Don't think it is right to proceed by obeying EU rules - There is a good agreement to be reached Just some token remarks by Johnson as all of this continues to allude to the fact that both sides are still not seeing eye to eye ahead of more negotiations between this month and September. If you need some reminding, September is supposedly the "hot phase" so expect talks between now and then to be rather insignificant - at least in terms of progress.
