Four I NT LFC -- he joins us now.
Good to see -- so first -- -- we should mention there there's very light volume it's.
This is not on par -- -- what happened a year ago when there was this huge massive gold rush correct.
Yes I would agree without correct it's we're not seeing got sort of all the cylinders firing in gold there's.
You know they investment demand is still weak jewelry demand is weak so this is kind of very.
You know it's still a significant move but it's not it's not broad based.
Why did it happen at worst sitting here surprising that it was because people believe that the Fed or any Central Bank.

Already know if it's it's sort of a cat is -- -- please make -- -- you could -- -- setback so it's it's kind of a balancing act.
We saw silver -- about 3% which as far as percentages are concerned a bigger than what we saw with -- today but so for well off its highs of the session.
