Vague as to exactly what's going on in China us could -- have a negative impact as well we don't see the kind of numbers out of the back country that we practicing.
It could the oil demand estimates for China coming out.
Are about 300000.
Barrels a day incrementally and money thirteen which only offsets the decline from US and Europe so.
Many are watching the emerging markets Latin America Africa Middle East where collectively they're looking at 800000.
Barrels a day being and it.
Whereas the non OPEC supplies only 700000 barrels of those areas will be driving demand do you think tests what does that do to the price of below.

Call because inflation has been an issue right and and inflation has not ever historically been that.
In the price of gold whereas for some other metals like copper the returns are explained by inflation so generally.
Why baskets of commodities in the Dow Jones UBS at some PGA CI that have the same food and energy and CPI -- -- you move with inflation whereas.
