Answer ( 1 )

  1. Treasury bills (T-bills) are short-term notes issued by the U.S. government. They come in three different lengths to maturity: 90, 180, and 360 days. The two shorter types are auctioned on a weekly basis, while the annual types are auctioned monthly. T-bills can be purchased directly through the auctions or indirectly through the secondary market.
    Commercial bills, commonly referred to as “commercial paper,” are unsecured, short-term debt instruments that a corporation or other private organization uses to ensure it has adequate cash on hand to cover operating costs. Commercial bills are typically sold in denominations of $1 million and up. They usually have very short maturities, often maturing overnight, and are typically issued at market interest rates.
