In order to analyse EMG responses according to SMT force events, seven time windows (see figure 2) that spanned across the entire SMT force curve were defined: a "Baseline" of 500ms duration
to observe EMG activity before the SMT, a "Preload phase" of 1000ms, a "Thrust phase" and four phases which successively followed the "Thrust phase" with two windows of 250ms and two windows of 500ms (referred as "Post-SMT1" to "Post-SMT4" in figure 2 and 3).
Because the Treasury did not target a policy rate, our time period is an ideal laboratory to identify the effects of altering the duration
and scarcity of Treasury bonds outstanding without a signaling channel confounding our measurements.
