Glossary Term: TREASURY BILLS

Definition(s) for TREASURY BILLS:


1. ) Also called T-bill, these are short-term obligations issued by the U.S. Treasury. Treasury bills are issued in 3 month, 6 month and 1 year maturities, and they are sold at a discount to par. They do not pay interest but are issued on a discount basis instead.

2. ) Short-term US Treasury securities issued in minimum denominations of $10,000s and usually having original maturities of 3, 6, or 12 months. Investors Purchase bills at prices lower than the face value of the bills; the return to the investors is the difference between the price paid for the bills and the amount received when the bills are sold or when they mature. Treasury bills are the type of security used most frequently in open market operations.
