Got -- like this why.
Jerry look I think this is all about commodities not so much the market and listen like everybody else I like the market going -- I'm not a hater.
With regards to equity prices but I'll tell you the story to me -- commodities.
All come -- not just gold and still -- but if you look at lumber steel aluminum.
All -- ahead of the Fed move yesterday in the last couple months are -- big this means higher prices for consumers higher prices for companies I think it's a job killer.
Why -- job killer I don't get that that's exactly what Ben Bernanke is trying to target he says he wants to bring the unemployment rate down.
Yeah and that's why I think -- super dangerous ground because you know what unemployment is only getting a lot that the Fed.
Prints more money because just I was saying commodity prices go up if your company.
And you're buying input your buying things that going to making -- products.
What happens when prices go up Jerry your profitability gets hurt you -- do you do one of two things you raise prices on the consumer or you fire people but it does profitability -- -- have both bad outcomes.

Federal Reserve Chairman says he wants to help the housing market by gonna tell -- I don't see people cry in over their milk about.
Interest rates for mortgages at 3.5 percent.
No he talked about this yesterday I think you're absolutely right that the mortgage rates are low enough as it is the housing market.
Listen why don't think it's getting any better I don't think it's gonna get much worse in keeping rates this low Jerry is completely artificial as you pointed out yesterday and I think that's totally correct.
You -- rates are out there interest rates of people understand are out there.
To basically assess risk right if something has a higher rate that's supposed to tell investors that it's risky if you're artificially pushing rates down people can -- the correct risk.
Wow OK so without -- market go up is gonna continue going up on the basis -- this fed action.
