Is there a way I can get this data to you in a spreadsheet? Otherwise, it's of no use because the numbers get scrambled on here.

You can set up an account at mediafire.com and post a link to your spreadsheet. I believe I can help you with this problem. When do you need the solution?

Thanks for taking a look, and let me know if you need any more information!

I changed the -0.3% to .22% because that is in fact more accurate, like you mentioned. However, the beta of the Tbill still results in a negative number (-.02). Do you think is okay? Also, doesn't the NASD Comp index appear to be overvalued in this graph?
