For example, if someone earns 10,000 euros and pays 1,000 euros in income tax, then the tax rate would be 10%. Q153

As you may know, you can make investments whose returns depend directly on the course of the DAX. To do this, you buy shares in a so-called DAX index fund. If the DAX rises, so does the yield of the DAX index fund. When the DAX falls, the yield of the DAX index fund falls. Q490
553 First of all, we are talking about next year, that is, the next 12 months: Suppose that someone would invest EUR 1000 in a DAX index fund tomorrow. Do you expect this investment to yield more profit or loss over the next year, compared to today's value? Q491

558 In terms of numbers, what total value of [profit/loss] in euros do you expect over the next 30 years? As a reminder, we are talking about an initial investment of EUR 1000. Q496
559 How likely do you think is it that this investment will yield a higher profit after 30 years than [XX+20% profit]? / a smaller loss than [YY-20% loss]? Q497
560 How likely do you think is it that this investment will yield a lower profit after 30 years than [XX-20% profit]? / a smaller loss than [YY+20% loss]? Q498
