kind of sending the nod -- the not crazy alarming signal. so far, all that has happened throughout this risk throughout, fed funds are the euro-dollar future. this has been about a deeper fed cutting cycle expected. not necessarily a longer one. it will take a while for that to change or the depth to get so two'sat it also pushes below tens.
