It's good leading indicator when when high yield bond sell off typically -- from 2007 on.
It's a leading indicator for equities so if you look at the crash of -- wait look at the global meltdown of 2011 both times high yield bonds for selling off before those equity melt up.

To have little teeny bit from that chart move down -- it's it's it's a long cycle in them if there are more LBOs.
