: I cannot find the symbol listing for 3 month Treasury bills or 10 year Treasury notes or any treasury yield symbols. I would like to download and track over time in Fund Manager. Can't find the symbols to use. Any Help ???
: Thanks

Hi Jim,

I've been using the Yahoo! symbols as follows:
13 week Bills ^IRX
5 year Notes ^FVX
10 year Notes ^TNX
30 year Bonds ^TYX

One suggestion would be to use the Yahoo!(Historical) quote server because it puts the decimal in the right place eg. 5.781 % whereas the regular Yahoo! server, for whatever reason, moves the decimal place one to the right giving you a quote that would read 57.81 %. Additionally, the yield quotes are to the third decimal place. Good luck and Happy New Year.
