Eike Rathke updated OFFICE-2224:
--------------------------------

Proposal:

TBILLEQ is calculated as
TBILLEQ = (365 * rate) / (360 - (rate * DSM))
where DSM   is the number of days between settlement and maturity computed according to  the 360 days per year basis.

If no one comes up with a clarification for "bond-equivalent yield for a treasury bill", leave it as is.

> Broken out from OFFICE-916
> TBILLEQ
> - Excel gives the formula:
>   "TBILLEQ is calculated as TBILLEQ = (365 x rate)/360-(rate x DSM), where DSM
>   is the number of days between settlement and maturity computed according to
>   the 360 days per year basis."
>   That's wrong - should be (365 x rate)/[360-(rate x DSM)]. Also: using the
>   360 day year is vital information which needs to be included.
> - "bond-equivalent yield for a treasury bill" is probably lifted from Excel's
>   Help, and comes across as jargon; needs more explanation, especially for
>   non-US people.
> [ed:] TODO: any native English speaker knowledgeable in that domain?
