Great. We will see if it works out. Of course insurance companies cannot survive well with negative rates. Hemopefully we are not headed there. One more point, we need to see how derivatives are impacting the repo market going forward.

Trump is interested, but then again a temp deal is off the table. So he must give in. If he does not there will be no deal. China is in the driver's seat.
