The key risk that we are concerned about are prepayments and interest rate risk and QE3, certainly is designed to some degree to affect those, so realistically since QE3 could have a very significant impact on both, mortgage prices, valuations return, and can have a significant impact on our cash flow, right? How fast mortgage is prepay, it doesn't make any sense for us not to focus on this issue especially given that it's obviously a real possibility Agency mortgage purchases would be most likely a very large part of the picture, and those purchases have those ramifications. Again, both on pricing and valuation, but importantly also on our cash flows so from our perspective not an option not to pay attention here.
