re: German bonds paying 'negative' interest? - euphemus
So much for the Zero Lower Bound. Are they in this predicament because the Euro Zone didn't do QE faster? On a related note, if the US Fed followed the so-called Taylor Rule for setting interest rates, at the height of the financial crisis the rule would have told the Fed to set interest rate at lik...

Is the Canon Rebel SL1 (EOS 100D) a good starter DSLR camera? - euphemus
This will be our first DSLR camera purchase. We have only used point-and-shoots and our smartphones as cameras thus far. I like the Canon Rebel SL1 (called EOS 100 in the rest of the world) because of its price and compact size and weight. It is apparently the smallest DSLR in the market. Jus...

re: What kind of assets/securities does the Fed buy/sell to change interest rates? - euphemus
I get that they 'print' money to buy assets. I know while doing QE they bought stuff like MBS among other things to try to change the long-term interest rate, but to affect the short-term federal funds rates, do they mostly just buy and sell US treasuries in the open market, or do they buy other typ...
