Right here that we spend a lot to say that's I wouldn't have let this the that much concern that he overextended on the down on the there are some signs of over achievements he said pockets and markets if you look at the rotation out of fixed income markets and into equities -- recent weeks I think has kind of show I think if you look at the fundamental Michael outlook. And things haven't improved -- -- in recent weeks to a recent months to five -- Nicholas I who works with fundamental problem remained very challenging. I think there was a danger that some markets are forgetting that our sincerest challenges lying ahead.
