It is a long one.

Give us the highlights.

The highlights are investors are concerned about qe, when will it stop, be tapered, and they are also concerned about gold.

We saw outflows of nearly 4 billion.

It is the first time we have had outflows in nearly two years.

Etf's have been doing well.

Where we did see money going in was equities.

People are more optimistic on the u.s. market, looking for dividend.

Higher volatility, minimum variance.

Gold has seen that outflows in the month of june oh $4 billion, and year to date, $28 billion has been taken out of gold products.
