Join Curt Frye for an in-depth discussion in this video TBILLEQ: Calculating the bond-equivalent yield for a Treasury bill, part of Excel 2010: Financial Functions.
Treasury bills, which are also called T-bills, are popular investments.…If you want to compare T-bill's yield to a bond's yield you can do so using…the TBILLEQ function.…To use that function you need to know the following three things about the…T-bill you're evaluating.…The first is the settlement date and that is the date that you take…possession of the investment.…Then you have the maturity date which is the date that the T-Bill payments come…due, in other words the money due to you is paid to you.…
And then finally you have the discount rate and the discount rate is the…interest rate applied to the investment.…So with that information in place you can click in cell C8 and create the formula.…So I'll type equal tbilleq, left parentheses, and then just fill in the…cell references for the three arguments. So we have our settlement date in C3, comma,…maturity date C4, comma, and the discount rate which is in C5.…Type a right parenthesis just to make sure everything looks right. Everything is good.…
