A question for Fed experts

August 01, 2012 – Comments (3)

If the Fed wanted to drop the yield on the 10yr to 0.50%, would they be technically able to do that, even if the general population of the U.S. and the rest of the world no longer wanted to hold them? Feel free to pontificate about why they would never choose to do that or whatever, but I'm only interested in whether it's possible for them to exert that level of control over the price of Treasurys.
