That -- that -- earlier the armed talks to form a government in Greece fall apart maybe they're gonna have to have elections again will they be able to.
Get the bailout that the country needs is this selling overblown is that really the reason Anton.
Well I mean half.
Uncertainty continues to breed you know markets that are uneasy.
The one thing that I take some comfort in is there's not a lot of stress and funding -- European banks at this point in time and I think that's important.
And worth watching something through -- -- and I have access to.
But European banks are not stress from a funding perspective.
I think a lot of the actions.
Europeans took last year between December.
Long term funding mechanism is really help the banking system stabilized I think it's very important critical here.
Emotions are on high ME some of the statements.
The other Greek leaders made this -- a -- new government nationalizing banks and not repaying debt.
Sure that's gonna spook people.
You know perhaps they should just let Greece go and let's move on -- ring -- threats to Europe for me I think we're all getting tired of this but.
You know we all -- -- coming in you know his interest -- yesterday we didn't have a terrible market.
All the year was a few comments data you know really pour salt in the -- -- yesterday.

If you think thing is at least when I left my office to head of the studio today a lot of the small cap regional banks were actually flat to I even slightly up.
It's a larger banks are more under assault because these headlines and you know I really you know as have been saying for some time I think emanates gonna bigger driver of the smaller names the larger names -- on headlines for quite some time but.
-- we saw a lot of important things in March we saw the stress tests.
They all pretty much past the ones that failed only failed because they want to return to much cap we're -- -- dividends and buybacks and it -- the -- system is strong and and by the way the weakness in Europe the banks.
