David let me talk a bit about the Fed one -- one interesting thing is that if folks think that the Fed and the ECB are likely to print more money.
Usually gold goes up a -- as a place to put your money if you think your dollars are heroes are going to be devalued that hasn't been happening why not.
What has -- happening eight except that if you look on Friday.
We had gold up nearly 4% -- I was I was different but not so it hasn't hasn't -- in fact today was down a little bit.
