I can tell you about I that seal essay and their strategists. Christopher woods says China's Yuan could zip to seven in five minutes and spur a rethink of the basket. So what he's saying is that politics really are playing a more important role now than the central banks. And he said all it would take us for Italy to blow up again, and the euro would get weaker and they'd be at seven in five minutes that was the line about the one hitting seven he said this in Hong Kong at their big conference. And he said that what would happen in the case of this is that it would possibly spur the People's Bank of China to consider removing the euro from the basket used to set the currencies trade.

And it sees halting new purchases by the end of the year. The rates for the moment will stay at present levels at least through the summer of next year.
