For Wendy, here's the calculation for treasuries (and any other bond, I think):Return/Price => actual return (lets say 1.025 for our example)To annualize on an APR basis, take the fraction part (i.e. subtract 1) to get 0.025 and multiply by days-in-year/days-for-bond.In the case of 365/182, times 0.025, would be 0.0501... or 5.01%To annualize on an APY basis, take the full return above (1.025) and raise it to the power of days-in-year/days-for-bond.So, 1.025 ^ (365/182) = 1.0508... or 5.08%Thanks! I really like to see how to do the math. And you explain it very well.Vickifool
