Saving log - $2 tip box
Spending log - $10 lunch + $1.85 Financial Times + $3 apple, bagette

Its the collection of the small today.

Well this week my little T-bill will generate $1.09 in interest, a slight improvement over last.

I got a .35 check from Capital One. Better than a .35 charge.

$2 in the tip box, along with 2 cents I found on the sidewalk.

During this financial, now economic, crisis, I've been picking up the Financial Times, as sort of a European version of the Wall Street Journal. Its perspective seems somehow more objective. At least it is from a distance.

    Didn't the 3 months dip to like 7 bp last week? I was doing some work on bootstrapping a zero treasury curve using constant 1/2 maturity of treasuries priced at a zero OAS and I thought I saw a yield of 0.07% on the 3 month.

    A lot of volatility on the short end of the curve. I know it got real step last week.

    I'm at 4 weeks, instead of 3 months. Smile So we even have a little inverted curve on top of the volatility.
