"Pool guy. We have the whole specialist on the phone. There you go. He's on the phone right now. Oh, that's awesome. That's right. Robert is in Hattiesburg. He's a pool specialist. What were you mentioning, Robert? Well, I was just curious if I could help with the problem. I hear that you got some cloudy water, I guess. Oh gosh. Is this a sales pitch, Robert? Well, tell me, Robert, my pool folks are telling me it's all this rain and for whatever reason it's creating the phosphates in the water. Yeah, phosphates and water. I mean, we're in south Mississippi. So in the water is a never ending battle. And generally speaking, the PH and the alkalinity are going to be in control of how much total dissolved solid the water can hold. So usually when you've got cloudy water, good chlorine, no allergy, you've just got a situation where you literally have total dissolved solids hanging out in the water and if you adjust the PH in the right direction, you can usually get that to precipitate out for get caught in the filter. All right, I need like 11th grade chemistry to hang out with you guys. Well, I understand what he's saying. And that's what they had me do. They had me put some baking soda. And they tested it. And I tested it weekly myself. But sometimes these the alkalinity and there are things that my pool testing equipment is not going to tell me. So what you're saying Robert is basically what they told me. But do you agree that it's The Rain that's causing a lot of these problems in these swimming pools? It can. I mean, we get a lot of rain. A lot of it's not all in. You hear it? This isn't the first time it rained on the pool. Well, but this is the first time I've been having phosphate problems. I've had this pool for 20 years, and all of a sudden, I'm having problems that I've never had before. Never. You had never tested for phosphates in the past. Well, I've never had to my water's always been crystal clear. My PH is always been good. My chlorine's always been good. Now I got a theory. I got a conspiracy theory. I have a theory. I think your pool is too high maintenance. It's too big. Right, right. You need to be done. I got a question. I have one question. It's never been that. Go for it, Robert. Do you have well water? No. I'm in the same city. And that's what I'm just scratching my head because I've had this pool 20 years and never had a problem with it. Is it salt or chlorine? I've got a chlorine here, and then we got a side pull down in the country. And that one's not even happening. Welcome to the pool show. Well, tell you what. Let's have a let's move on from that. And thank you for the call, Robert. I'm tired of talking about my pool. I did want to talk about it. I did want to talk to Francis in natchez, what's going on, Francis? Thanks for having me on. Yeah. Two questions for you this morning. My first question is, a friend of mine found some snakes in a garage. And she seemed to think that the snake came in through the weep holes. And I told her no way possible. With the back end on the outside of the stood, the two top place double plates played at the bottom and even if they did get down in between that you had to insulation. And if it had got down in between that, they had the sheet rock to deal with. She saw how we pose, I told her she made it. Oh no, that's not good. So okay, before we mention this during the beginning of the show that we'd be talking about some terms today. And it's kind of funny because I said we pull, right? And you hear what you hear. The person who answers the phones today wrote down wheat hole. As if it were like a place for wheat to go. I do want to that's why I didn't say the name. I do want I do want to explain the term. So what do you guys explain to me, what is a weep WEP whole? What is that? Well, okay, we poll is at the bottom of your brick ledge. It's in your first or second row, but below your slab and in the second first or second, third row course of brick. Right. There are 33 inches apart. And all it is is a space between the two bricks, where there's no mortar. A hole. We don't put mortar there. Now there's a reason for that. Your brick is spaced away from your structure. The air goes up through your soffit vent, down the back side of the brick and on the front side of the sheeting, and any moisture that was to get between the sheathing and the brick would weep out of that we pull. So it actually serves two purpose. It weeps moisture or wicks the Birmingham area. They actually put a cotton rope in there. Yeah, I see it. I see it. When I go there. So I wish we would do that here, but we don't. So weeps the water out, but it also lets air circulate between the brick and the sheet. It's like a ventilator. And also brick is porous. So your brick is really not designed to keep the water off. It's your pretty. Well, the folks, the thing. Yeah, the thing that you guys have told me over the years is that I always thought houses were made of brick. I didn't realize they just looked like bricks. Well, they used to be. I mean, you go into these hundred year old and you can't solid. Or cinder block building. That structure is built cinder block. But typically when you see a brick home, the brick is a veneer outside of the actual structure. Doesn't even touch. Did you hear that folks? That's right. So think about this. When you go home and you look at the brick and you count on that brick to keep you safe, right? There's nothing behind that. Well, I don't think that we're going to keep you real safe. And another thing you want to think about too, since we're talking about that, is that because the brick is the veneer, a lot of times people will freak out if they're cracks in that veneer. Well, and you've got to understand that that brick, brick doesn't have you ever tried to break a bridge, or move a brick when brick moves against brick. If there is a little give in there at all, just let's say a quarter of an inch. You'll end up with a hairline crack. A lot of times that happens on the back side where it will see it where the garage meets the house because the garage slab is not as thick as the house lab. And a lot of times they're poured separately, or they'll be a joint. And when those start moving, if they don't put what we call an expansion joint on the backside and that I've had people freak out over and expansion joint. And all that is is a straight line that's cut between the brick on the garage and the brick on the house, or what's the length on brick wall that has to have an expansion charge. 30 some odd feet, I think.

"And I started talking to a guy named amateur traveler, so I was trying to think of something that kind of summarized my travels into date. I had been known for this photo that was widely used at my university, which was university of Tennessee, and it was me on a camel, and when you win a photo contest and you don't realize you're signing away your rights for life, that happened to me, this photo of me from 2005 still circulates on the study abroad brochure was in the alumni magazine. It was in the annual calendar, and university of Tennessee is a large university. When it first started coming out, I would get just an influx of calls or texts to me and my mom saying, oh, we saw Kristen that Kim will girl again. This month she's miss may. The calendar, and it goes like that photo that haunted me. And from the beginning of my journalism career, I've always written a lot about food and everywhere I went, I would seek out chocolate, like the best chocolate in the country. There's no reason to explain that, yes. Possibly now that would be like beer and bourbon back then it needs to camels and chocolate, but so yeah, it's just stuck with me and there are a lot of blogs out there, but I don't have to compete for compete with my name for any of them. So I can say that. Excellent. And I'll put links to Kristen's posts about the natchez trace to all of them. I think actually in the show notes for this article so you can find them more easily. Kristen, thank you so much for coming on amateur traveler and talking about your love for the south and your love for the natchez trace Parkway. Yeah, thank you for having me.

"Off and you go straight to the Mississippi River and natchez and it's just like the sunsets are unreal. So that is my favorite spot for a view along the trace. One thing that makes you laugh and say only on the natchez trace per queen. I will say the most surprising thing to me is when we went to this town of Clinton Mississippi because everyone, including the mayor, just travels around by golf cart. So you're in this community off the trace, which you are looking at some of the most historically significant lands for the choctaw chip that saw and natchez Indians and then you're driving through this town of Clinton, Mississippi, and everyone is riding around in golf cart waving at you. And it seems like everyone there knows when you're from out of town because they stop and talk to you. And I'm like, I'm from Tennessee. I'm not even from that far away, but it's like you're walking around with a big signpost on you saying, I'm a traveler in the not just trace and they want you to have the best time ever there. I wasn't expecting to go to this cute little Main Street area and have everyone driving around the cobblestone ways by golf cart so that did make me laugh. Excellent. And if you had to summarize the experience of driving the matches trace in three words, what three words would you use? I had to summarize the trace in three words. I would say it is expansive. Surprising and transformative. Excellent. Our guest again has been Kristen Luna from camels and chocolate dot com. I have to ask, why camels and chocolate? I like camels and I like chocolate, but why camels and chocolate dot com? I don't know that I've ever asked you this. Yeah, so I started my blog in 2007 before there was a concept of SEO. And I started talking to a guy named amateur traveler, so I was trying to think of something that kind of summarized my travels into date.

"I did document it mile by mile, only because I couldn't find a lot of sites that just listed the highlights when I was doing it. There are a ton of places you can stop over on the trace, but not necessarily all of them are going to be interesting to travelers because it is a very storied by way that has been around long before modern day travelers. So there's so much history there, but not everything is going to be something you want to stop and see. So if you do want the mile marker itinerary, I do have it on my blog. Also, the natchez trace Parkway, there's a great website for that. It's scenic trace dot com. And then the National Park Service has a ton of information on their website, which I used when creating my itineraries. Excellent. Anything else we want to say before we get to some of our wrap up questions. I guess there didn't really talk about the food. Okay. I just made note of the questions that you normally ask. And what should you eat along the trace? This part of the south is very heavy in meat and three culture, which is usually a meat and three sides. So you'll find that and you'll find soul food at a lot of the stops along the way. If you're vegetarian, you might want to bring snacks 'cause we are very heavy in the meat and breeze here in the south. Same if you have any dietary restrictions, you are going to have to do a little bit more advanced planning because not so many vegetarian and gluten free options as you might be used to if you're coming from a coastal area. You could just eat the N three. You can just eat the even just live on a diet of macaroni and cheese. I won't judge. I think I just had that for dinner, so I'm glad you're not touching on that. It was good macaroni and cheese. Homemade stuff, not the box stuff, just so for the record. If you're standing in the prettiest spot in the natural trace Parkway, where are you standing at? What are you looking at, Kristen?

"Sure. And you're doing the full trace. You're looking at 444 miles. So depending on what kind of car you have, you're looking at like a tank and a half of gas if you're just doing that one way. So still more affordable than flying overseas, which is just ridiculous right now. And then when you're leaving Jackson, you have a couple different options. You could pop into the town of Clinton, which is not far at all from Jackson. It's probably about 20 minutes outside of Jackson. It's where the Clinton riots took place, which kind of started reconstruction in the state. It has a lot of historical markers that also tell that story in the downtown in the Main Street community. They're really reviving that area to make sure that they tell the story. The thing about traveling the notch is to spark while you're anywhere in the south is that it's fraught with all this history of the enslaved people and then the civil rights movement. I do think there are a lot of communities like Clinton that are making an effort to make sure that all of those stories are told and that they're not buried and that's why I do like the idea of this trip right now. Because I feel like we're at a time in history where there's so much division and people don't really understand where it all stems from. This trace is a really great kind of teaching moment for people who know nothing about the plantation era of the south. Yeah, we're Deep South now. We're Deep South and it's not none of this is really glorifying that plantation era at all. What I really love about going to nachos, Mississippi is that it is one of the areas in the south that kind of remained untouched during the Civil War. So a lot of other towns and regions were decimated, whereas nachos buildings and its old historic homes are relatively preserved. So if you really want to see what life was like before all of this happened during the Civil War, it's almost frozen in time in a way, but the town is very progressive and it's a very welcoming to LGBTQ travelers. It's like a little mini New Orleans, but a 15,000 person town in Mississippi, of all the places along the natchez trace, that in Jackson felt like the most progressive destinations to me. I think it's important that you see both sides of traveling in the south, obviously because it's not all like that, but when we were there one night, for example, we went to this really cool drag bingo show downtown and we really got to see how big the gay community is in nachos, which I loved to see as a southerner, I will say that there's just a ton to do in nachos that for anyone who likes to go out and do the nightlife side of things. It is like a miniature New Orleans without the crowds. And you can walk around to easily, it feels very safe. It's all situated along the Mississippi River, and there's these traumatic fluffs that just cascade over into the river, so you can stay at one of the historic bed and breakfasts down by the river and kind of ditch your car and walk around for the majority of your time there. They do have an open cup policy like New Orleans does where when you're in a certain part of town. You can walk around with your beer and hand or whatever. So if that's your vibe, it's a good place to do that. Excellent. It sounds like that kind of wrapped up our itinerary from north to south here. Anything else you want to fill in?

"Crafts or wants to learn more about that, that influence on the area, it's a great stock to make. And so it's also a reason to stop over from French camp to Jackson because I do think a lot of people probably just hit the main cities on the drive to natchez trace, but there are over two dozen communities along the way and everything has at least an afternoon's worth of things to do. Okay. Interesting. And then we're in Jackson. So then from ridgeland, you are not far at all from Jackson maybe 20 or 30 minutes. Okay. Jackson is I think maybe the next hunt spill. It's this Gritty southern city that has a big creative entrepreneur vibe and a lot of kind of startups that are happening in the food and beverage space. A lot of street art, a lot of cool museums, and then of course one of the main things that people go to Jackson for is Mississippi civil rights museum if you're a tourist. And that just absolutely blew me away. It's actually two museums and one. And it is a must stop for any traveler, whether you've studied the civil rights movement or you're an absolute Newbie when it comes to learning about that period of history. I've been to the national civil rights museum in Memphis, this was that caliber and just continued the story. Okay. It was so well done. I couldn't believe I didn't know about it until I went there. So definitely a mess do for anyone who is traveling the trace. That is something if you only had like a weekend and you're trying to cram all the trace into it. That is one thing I would say to prioritize getting off of the Parkway for. Okay. What else are we gonna do in Jackson? So Jackson also has a lot of art museums like the Mississippi Museum of Art.

"The tupelo visitor center is located on the former site of the shake rab neighborhood where Elvis would go to that Pentecostal church and kind of feel the music and really get into singing and they have really cool stations where you can listen to music and see the Elvis tupelo story. If you've seen the movie or read anything about him, he was really inspired by superheroes. Captain Marvel junior was his icon and that's why he wore the capes and everything. And I learned all this through my time at tupelo, was not an Elvis historian prior to my visit, but the visitor center is really cool because they have all of this history that you can go and visit for free and you can see this through graphic, almost like graphic novel interpretations they've done and listened to the music and then there's all sorts of an Elvis guitar trail and Elvis driving tour. You can pick up maps to do all of this on your own. So definitely the Elvis fan needs to go, but I think any one driving the trace should at least stop over for a night in tupelo. And I found a very interesting blog post on this site. I'm not sure if you're familiar with the camels and chocolate about tupelo that has a lot of very colorful things, including a meteorite and places like that in tupelo. Yes, I love a colorful town. I love myself a mural, and there's quite a few murals in tupelo, but yes, the meteor queens reward meadery into blue was the state's first meadery, and anyone who likes adult beverages should stop by there and try it because it's only been open for a few years and I think that they've had a pretty big impact on that area. Excellent. We're too next. Leaving tupelo you're going to be headed south toward Jackson. There are a few places you can stop along the way like French camp, which is an old historic village, and it has cabins, a small bed and breakfast, and other places you can visit there. Did you happen to stay there when you were driving the trace at all? No, we really did it as day trip. We were in Huntsville after the T bex Huntsville, my wife flew in and I showed her all around that fun city. And then we were heading down to vicksburg. And just happens to be that the a lot of the drive in between can be done on the natchez race. So we were really just driving the trace for a day. Got it. French camp is this old timey feeling like historic village that you there's like kind of a dining hall you can eat in and you can stay in this little log cabin that has a dozen or so rooms and you eat breakfast all in kind of this common area. It feels a little bit like summer camp and my husband and I stayed there for a night when we were transiting between tupelo and Jackson and

"So that's a good site for reference if you want to just if there's something you're interested in like Indian mounts and you want to find them all in one place and know where to go. You can look at their site for that. And we should say if people haven't visited in the amounts, they're obviously very culturally and historically significant, but on the other hand, their amounts of dirt. So don't set your expectations really high in terms of what it will look like. It's not that it's a stunning site so much as an important historical site. Exactly. That's like my guess is people won't stop at every one. Yeah, so that's the thing is there are 6 along the way and if you just want to see one and see what it's all about, there are a few different options for that. The emerald mound down near nachos toward the end of the trace is probably one of the better ones to visit in my opinion because it does have some good historical signage for people who haven't visited this type of thing before and really want to get more of that background. Yeah, and that would be the why they built it how they built it sort of thing. Correct, yes. Got it. Okay. Excellent. Where to next. Next, we are going to tuple, which is home to a little known artist named Elvis Presley. You may have seen the new movie about him. Have you seen it? Actually. I have not seen a new movie about almost wrestling. It is fantastic. It has done very well at the box office, and I think it's filled this hole in what people knew about his life from the time he was born in tupelo until he obviously moved to Memphis and became a global name, but two blows were he was born. You can still see the house where he and his twin, who passed away at birth, were born, and there's all sorts of Elvis tours and trail markers and murals. There's everything you can imagine around the town of tupelo. Even if you're not an Elvis fan, it's just really cool to see because they've got a great Main Street a downtown area that just has so many historical sites like an old hardware store where Elvis is first. Guitar was purchased an old department store that still functioning, even if you're sitting there rolling your eyes, okay, I've had enough Elvis. I think it's still a cool town to at least drive through, but I personally love it. And I've been wanting to go back because there is a brand new. There's a brand new boutique hotel in tupelo called hotel tupelo, and I've been wanting to go back just to check it out. And I'm sure it has plenty of Elvis memorabilia infused in it, but very neat town in Mississippi that's going to be different than the vibe you're getting elsewhere on the trace. Got it. Anything else we're doing in tupelo? You can't go to tupelo and not catch that vibe and get really interested in what he did for music. One thing to note is that his inspiration was the black community and tupelo. His roots were in the gospel church. And so you can still kind of experience that in your visit to tupelo.

"And then you can continue on into Mississippi, hit up tupelo, Elvis's birthplace, continue on to Jackson, and then you end in nachos, Mississippi, which is the oldest settlement on the Mississippi River, and it's also where the southern terminus of the natchez trace Parkway is. So it goes all the way from nachos, Mississippi, and then winds its way up through three states and ends in Nashville, Tennessee. Okay. And you're recommending we go from north to south because we'll be going down the map and therefore better gas mileage right. Exactly. I think you could do it either way that makes sense for you, depending on if you're flying in and starting in either direction, flights to Nashville from a lot of the U.S. are very cheap usually. So it's a good airport to use as your hub. And then when you end in Nashville, Mississippi, it is a smaller area for getting flights out. But if you wanted to continue on, you could go another two and a half, three hours to New Orleans and injure trip there. Although the natchez trace does terminate in at just Mississippi. So if we do from north to south, the first place you would recommend we stop is where. So I would actually skip Nashville altogether for this trip. I love Nashville and from the air. Just covered it recently. That's okay. Yes. So you can go. Yes, there's many reasons to go to Nashville, but I think it's like a separate long weekend trip when you're doing the natural trace. I think you start and leapers fork, which is just outside of Franklin. And it's probably only 45 minutes from the Nashville airport. So you can pick up a car if you're flying in, go there, stay in a cute little cottage right off the trace. Enjoy the artisan community there explore Franklin, see the Civil War history, because there's a lot of battlefields, the battle of Franklin was one of the bloodiest battles in the Civil War.

"For the opportunity to learn our craft through formal education. But these were people who did this extraordinary work. I want to raise this question to each of you. Why do you feel it is important to preserve and restore historical sites that speak to the black experience and history. Even when the history that they are centered on, isn't necessarily uplifting and at times some of it is frankly quite painful. If you don't tell your history yourself, it will be lost. And so this is not only a pilgrimage for people all over the world, but it's a way to learn about the legacy and the contributions of African American people and how they made this country this great experience and experiment greater and better for all citizens. So history has to be taught. And if it's not going to be taught to young people in the schools the way it should be taught, then who will do it if we want. As preservations, we preserve stories of a painful past, as well as stories about prosperity within the black community. And we are intentional about balancing public memory because the black experiences more than racial violence and injustice. A family in Mississippi, the Williams family. That is working to preserve the Duma, pharmacy building in natchez, Mississippi. This place tells the story of two black a doctor and a dentist early entrepreneur is helping to build a thriving black commercial district in that city and Mississippi. Their story matters. Their contribution matters, and we are delighted to invest funding for capital and improvements of this vacant building. And I know we have all heard that if the history is buried, but she's also, then trying to the figure out tragedy how to be a teen repeats living with itself her immigrant. parents I mean, you would be surprised at how easily history important history is lost when you don't have someone in those congregations searching and researching to tell the

"Me to some version of childhood trauma. But this isn't that. Dismembered, hoggy and tomahawked bodies, man, of relatives and stuff. On both sides of this, let's call it a war. Just mass, I mean, ruthless, inhumane, atrocities, right? And it's like, to what degree was all that just fueling itself? Like to what degree were all these people or many of these people just kind of suffering from these things that it's unimaginable to us now? Yeah. Had to have scrambled their brains up. Had to have. They were tougher than us, but how tough can you be, man? Yeah. Humans weren't supposed to live that way. Well, that's the thing. That's the part is I think about all the time. Lewis wetzel, the death wind himself, ended up near natchez Mississippi and died at his cousin's House in 1808 at the age of 45, probably from yellow fever. He was buried in Mississippi, but in 1942, a 134 years after his death, they exhumed his grave and moved his remains back to mccreary cemetery in Marshall county, West Virginia. That's a bold move. They claimed his calf length hair was still visible, and that there was a musket line beside him in the coffin. This grave move in was likely connected to the author saying gray reigniting an interest in the old frontiersman and then a bunch of these other guys writing about him. Man, we're going to have to start talking about some lighthearted stuff on the bear grease podcast to pull ourselves out of the dark ditch that we found ourselves in. As a matter of fact, the next episode is gonna be a deep dive into the life of Mr. Rogers. Or I guess we could just move on and know that we've all come from a dark and bloody past as full of some wild stuff. The wild nature, physical hardship, and brutality of the lives of those on the American frontier continue to put my life in modern times into perspective. Thanks so much for listening to bear grease. I feel like a giant monkey is off my back now that Steve has his podcast on the death win.

Travel to Zagreb

"Let's start with a look at a European capital that's often overlooked by the beach crowd who enjoy Croatia's crystal clear coastline. But miss out on the scene in its capital city. It has a distinctively modern take on old world charm and it's just a few hours inland. To tell us about saga we're joined now by local guide Darya goateed. She's joined by Ben Curtis who writes about the Balkan regions elaborate history and thinks that Croatia's best period may be now Darya in Ben Welcome my pleasure. Same. Thank you for having. US Doria. You're from Zagreb your guide in Zagreb, a lot of Americans no Dubrovnik. Venice and a lot of Americans know the Anna Zagreb is right there in the middle. What should we know about Zagreb? Nanna. Saga is I would say the mix of. All these big capitals around and all these much better known cities around from historical perspective It was influenced by different cities and countries. So we have a little bit of all of that. What's an example? How is it a little bit of? How is it a little bit of Italy says it a little bit of the Slavic World So? obas part of the hops Burke monarchy later austro-hungary for few hundred. Years. And then architecture in town is very much what we would call out through nor Central European. So the mixture of Hungarian hungarian-austrian. We don't have much Dubrovnik textures that. Is Zog. Is completely different about the cuisine that scene is also very influenced by Austria but not only that we do eat struggles and. A lot of meat and potatoes and then on the other hand we also eat. A lot of Pasta beat some. We are very sensitive on coughing, and then we also have the Turkish influence because arguable also for few centuries, just about forty, five, fifty miles Sir north from the Ottoman Empire boarder okay. It's a crossroads release across through the s the Ben Curtis here in American who has a fascination and a deep interest in this part of Europe how would you say Zagreb is unique Zagreb is unique for being this gem of a central European capital. So everybody can measure saying they know Budapest, Vienna, they know Prague, but here's this. Gym of a historical city that hardly any American visits right and even though Zagreb stars rising on the Tourism Front these days but you can go there and it's not gonna be jammed with busloads of tourists from all over the place you're not gonNA hear a lot of other North American accents and you're going to be able to experience the city where the fabric of locals you're going to be sitting in a cafe with mostly other people from Zagreb, and that's great and it's hard to find that in Dubrovnik are in Vienna these days a year. Exactly. So if you had two nights in in one Danes, is there enough to keep you busy. Yeah. For sure I think, what would you do if you're gonNA show me around for a day the it's a great kind of one day stop if you're coming in and out for some of the coast. So Zagreb surprisingly has some of I think are the best museums of its kind in Europe now they're quirky right? You don't. Go desire grab for the Louvre or something like that. But you go to Zagreb for these unusual small museums like the Museum of naive art, which is great sort of not formally trained perhaps painters but really characteristic art with peasant themes. The famous one which is kind of made headlines around the world is a museum of broken relationships which is filled with these stories of couples who have broken up the objects that they have Meant something to them and they've given it this museum and so it's just a really interesting kind of poignant sometimes hilarious trip through people's relationships. So when we think of this naive art, I love this idea because you go to most art galleries in Europe Bennett, the opposite of naive arted this refined fully embraced high-society art but naive art is by definition just unschooled hasn't Sir Working People that just had a passion for painting. Exactly but are often very, very talented even if they didn't train at the academy or something like that but they're expressing the lives and cultures and artistic visions of people from the rural areas and it's genius really an undiscovered genius that happen to come out of the farm community or something absolutely. I love that museum by the way that that's really one of the unique things in Europe and it is in the capital of Croatia Zagreb.

Contagion of fear, uncertainty infect financial markets

"Ask when the bond market rarely rarely fall that's how the last couple of weeks today down seven basis points and it feels like nothing on a ten year one point one two percent is your guild and phone exchange dollar strength through yesterday brutal in the phone exchange market today no different the taller stronger against pretty much everything can G. ten once again makes a promise and that's been the story of the last week or so it's a confluence of all these shocks people just looking to hide cash park it at while they get through this volatility but also all of the companies in it that are not the U. S. who have found themselves in dollars set of currency hedges I mean there's so many factors that are playing into this the result as you said yesterday two levels even matter anymore I'm not sure what they do at the moment SO you wanna pick an example take sterling technically and politically when cable drops below one twenty decent entry point but a lot of support that over the last four years since the brexit vote right now looking gay I was looking at the chart yes that you and I were talking about and I just thought I wonder the flash crash log of twenty sixteen and October actually matters here does that level actually matter in any way shape or form we went through that like an I. three Bucks up with a one fourteen handle cable two Mondays ago yeah the one thirty two handle on cable it is moved so quickly so fast yeah and and that's supposedly a developed market right we we talk about what these are trading like emerging market currencies if you take a look at true emerging market currencies take a look at the Mexican peso it is just absolutely plunged versus the dollar it's now trading twenty four more than twenty four per dollar right now and that the weak as it's ever been in history what if I send my fears such films in capital D. to decapitate the boss of all bosses and the dollar feels like the possible asset classes and like it we think it's how you need to do the proper thing to do the African on this product I like S. Tom Kean comes back well I think he may want to kind of come back what you've told him he wasn't allowed to come back until at last come back next week but I think I'm gonna tell him he has to stay home and do it from his apartment but maybe we'll still hear you speak Italian and maybe or maybe not let's forget Jordan righteous they shall enumerate G. ten FX strategist used to be a neighbor of mine a long long time ago really don't try to catch up these through these things you said to me last week when I change the link and I was like okay Jordan when I take that sounds punchy we went through that like it was nothing the rating was John I mean could sell things fast enough we've we've sold two weeks ago three weeks ago we sold again yesterday and it fell to an office and within ten minutes it was pretty pretty often our clients and the question keeping will make its stock and will make a stop or wait pulled down the virus the incomes of the stunning Pacific angle it's when we get to a level whereas the flows stop comes what islands in the U. K. is actually built seventy years of leverage years of external vulnerabilities that its current account that say you know that balance of U. K. economic trade flows financial Clayton circle from government spending it's been a deficit anywhere between three to six percent of GDP not yet so that builds up and builds and builds up and you got all this external imbalances sensually coming out and and you got U. K. corporate meeting dollars you've got a lot of external investors needing back cash so that selling on the U. K. well and so we ask the question I mean I said one eighteen G. last week because that would be easy answer one other question if it's bigger level where is that where the current account goes into problems when the market will calm down and from all of our not to the point across the street as well as you will recall their fundamental equity in exchange right at the level and the current account goes into a pond and you stop having those that deficit problems you get level such as one to one eight five against the dollar against the euro at five one three one six of the novels so these are pretty scary levels we haven't seen those levels ninety eight people that's all that would be extremely strong for the plaza accord but given what's going on in markets this is a very completely different shock complied two thousand eight we just have to keep our minds open and like you said you said white in a few weeks ago I'm not a big deal while we're now looking at one o'clock the one I five hundred another mistake why keep making increasingly is drawing the line back to fundamentals in a market like the one run right now it's for exchange isn't this for just about illiquidity and technicals and a massive massive demand for U. S. dollar yeah I mean you know one night the man will run out will be at a stage where everyone has what they need and I don't think that's why now live because you just go years of the a leveraged position building up and it's also a function of investors wanting to get cash and so even provisions are making money such as the long gold trade that was made by the old old long fixed income money traded I was making money what happened is asset managers are having them vested pullout it makes sense given that the risk off environment so even good trade underperforming Sir is a nightmare there's a question where where is all this money going what are people doing with these dollars since you just need it in your bank account if your if your example someone has to pay the bills this month your record you're gonna call my healthy level could make their eyes that's what you need to call and see just seeing a lot of people draw down the savings and so when we look at different economies who had very low savings right shares are high thank right shares yeah we are starting to see a class in the country hi savings ratios under a little less stress I mean everybody's on the strap of the stage the U. K. did stand out of the country that has a very low savings rate shock brexit by another part of why we've seen this price action there's a concern here that we're getting close to something akin to if not I'm certainly not a run on the banks because the banks are flush with capital and they also have the backs up of central banks but a run on markets and and and there's sort of a question about the circuit breaker you talk about the virus but in terms of the technical selling pressure that you talk about in terms of margin coals or redemptions or foreign companies with swaps how far into what sort of ironing that out our way I do very hard question to answer photo on the bank you're right much more secure in two thousand eight hello a lot of the investment banks have got to have hands to transfiguration hold one years waffle overnight funding requirements so you don't have a similar situation my soul of RBS guns bust back in the heyday of the night's coming issues such as banks on a much better place is not a rush and is that unlike a bank runs let's just say that on the second part of your question I think it does boil down to what will make you stop and it's taking away from the U. K. and making more specific virus if women ruled in fact the hunt for at least two weeks from the county and the lockdown one government stock loosen them so take China for example that might be our best indicator of how this might play out we have two weeks three weeks four weeks of what damages government container Natchez well sometimes you can pop in central workers and then when we get signs that the vice it contains I think that might be the might of the market South Boston because we might get a sense of how deep the pain is and then we can stop twice in recovery because like now we have almost took my V. shaped recovery short shop had been something spectacle god it's now more like usual L. shaped stories but essentially if you think about you I think we have a weak Q. two now and that's when the bank the rolling into at the end of this month will be about pricing that recovery in Q. three and Q. all they could be W. shakes his number one we could see what happens two thousand eight we have the global financial crisis and then if you'd like to order barring that the euro crisis so we could see a couple of tricky is that this is like a very very long I any other letters Justin just with now bottom savings lake that's what it feels like Jordan for many people right now and at risk of getting a few steps ahead of us out to do it once you have some icons of thinking about some of these big issues at the moment because there is a worry and we poured up repeatedly on this program the even after this health crisis fades this particular episode will Spock appeared of defaults and de leveraging this stays with us for quite a while what are people saying to you about that Jordan everyone pretty much agree with the assessment that John in terms of how this plays out we have the recovery by W. SZCZEG W. credit he felt the B. Adeline the we are failed out essentially we have governments that have been very tough it's quite some time as such in America looking a bit more socialist I'm take equity stakes comply without him being out yesterday several companies that they deem worthwhile and if it means they'll be a pair of uncertainty knowing last year thanks that I noted that already single stop nines have shown signs of being resilient buses others using telecoms and other factor I think I'm about the president a global page recent differentiation going on that but essentially what is corruption credit spreads for the next year I think because don't be a fundamental driver of equity especially and for example if there is a long and politically you have a counterparty risk and you'll be dealing with clients being with crackle pets wondering what the level of default with care on this option so could be a lot more talk about even externally devices be contained within the next two weeks outside it will still have repercussions in the months
