Abstract: Shelah proved recently that if $ \kappa>\omega$ and $ S\subseteq\kappa^+$ is a stationary set of ordinals of cofinality different from $ \mathrm{cf}(\kappa)$, then $ 2^\kappa=\kappa^+$ implies $ \Diamond_{\kappa^+}(S)$. We show that for singular $ \kappa$, an elaboration on his argument allows us to derive $ \Diamond_{\kappa^+}(T)$ from $ 2^\kappa=\kappa^+ + \square^*_\kappa$ where $ T=\{\delta<\kappa^+ {\mathop{\vert}} \mathrm{cf}(\delta)=\mathrm{cf}(\kappa)\}$. This gives a strong restriction on the existence of saturated ideals on $ \kappa^+$.
