and a half figures higher from when they moved in march. that is the good. i think the bad is going to be the fed. no one is expecting anything. the risk is to the upside if they come out with a hawkish statement, but given the key event risks around june, july, briggs it being the main one, you can assume it will be a neutral to dovish statement if anything at all. the ugly is the boj. i think the boj is divided where they're going to move are not -- whether they are going to move are not. shery: how much is enough stimulus at this point? it is difficult for the boj at the moment. how do they satisfy the market. this is the key question that not only everyone is asking themselves, but also the boj. as you and your viewers know, when they move for qe3, january 29, dollar-yen was 118 before
they moved. we had that quick spike up, and we are obviously a lot lower. we were won 12 this morning, so significantly lower, and i think it is a sign of qe fatigue that we have been talking about for a while that is showing its phase come so the boj is thinking two things. the first is that qe is the next financial gain. every time you have to come back to the table, it has to be higher and harder. another is what level do we have to come in. i think it is the 100-105 level. the next question is how hard and what else can they do. a have to do something epic to be a real game changer. looking at the oil markets right now. some people are calling 50 the new magic number, where we would see a sustainable recovery in -- industry, but i know that i really thought your analogy was interesting. not spot of their
