I’m not sure what the Swiss franc should’ve been, we all should have been short the euro and the Swiss franc. I have been long in the dollar, U.S. dollar . . . which is the other side of that trade, but at the same time, I guess I should’ve shorted the euro. I just went along with the dollar… not because I have a lot of confidence in the dollar.

They [Russia] still have huge foreign currency reserves. This is helping their balance of trade, obviously. They still get paid for oil in dollars. And it’s certainly not – it’s not causing imports to go up in Russia with the currency collapsing. So I don’t see it as a crisis. They have many debts coming due – U.S. dollar debts, which I would suspect they can finance. But, again, I haven’t sat down and put pencil to paper to really determine whether it can be done or not.
