Patience Paying on the Short End

Rates on the short end of the yield curve continue to increase. As 2018 begins, I’m reviewing yields and considering ways to modestly increase returns on patience. Below is a link to U.S. Treasury yields. Treasury bills are now yielding above most online saving accounts and money market funds (3-month 1.4%; 6-month 1.58%; and 12-month 1.80%). The yield on the 12-month Treasury is 98 basis points higher than a year ago.
