The final project involves applications in personal finance.

Customer Question

The final project involves applications in personal finance. The project starts in Week 2 and ends in Week 6. Each week, starting in Week 2, you will need to submit a deliverable that will be graded during that week. All deliverables are Dropbox assignments.

Go to a financial Web site, such as finance.yahoo.com, http://www.google.com/finance, or moneycentral.msn.com. Obtain information on the yields and maturity for:

U.S. treasuries
Municipal bonds
Corporate bonds

Discuss what the pure expectations theory would imply about the yield curve. Compare and contrast the yields and maturities for each of the securities. Discuss which you would hold and why relative to interest rate risk. You must submit your backup in Excel or other supporting documentation showing how answers were reached.

On Saturday, September 1, 2012, place this assignment in the W5: Assignment 3 Dropbox.

This was not really helpful. You used Bloomberg instead of one of the three asked for and the grammar is terrible. Interest rate risk was not explained very well and there was no mention of yield spread. Thanks anyway but for $59 I expect more than what you provided.
