I do believe that the Philadelphia fed index has been obviously a sharp surprise for many.
What's interest being is that many of the Philadelphia manufactures.
Are even more optimistic this month than they were the prior month suggesting.
That maybe this is going to be short lived.
With regard to the housing market we have seen obviously some softening in the last month.
We still are.
Approximately nine point 6% over last year this time we've seen inventories declined by about 20%.
And worst we're currently sitting in about a six to seven month inventory which is.

But if if some of the major wild cards in the market such as the European crisis.
Some of our own US fiscal.
A policy dysfunction and and may be you know even considering global contraction to remain at bay.
Not saying they will but anything is possible they remain at -- It's possible we remain in this trading range and eventually work our way out of it in the government as you know has taken a very explicit stands.

Well we we we have moved.
From high is in the in in in -- may be having attended five or 10% cash allocation.
To having about a 45%.
Allocation at this time.
