Yes, sorry that was my attempt to project to the end of the year to get a good idea of end of year percentages. I just straight lined August's numbers. My theory is that the Feds Reverse Repo jujitsu is winding down and Vanguard will be keeping mostly traditional Treasuries in their portfolio going forward. If they start lowering rates, there will be even less likelihood they'll keep the Repos around. This is an estimate/projection that has to have assumptions.mouth wrote: ↑Thu Sep 07, 2023 12:41 pm Also you might have missed in it my update, but Vanguard USGO % Estimate seems to have some extra data at the bottom of VUSXX and I Wasn't sure if that was intentional? It's different than the other funds and different than 14.0 which has zero's on those cells (F42:F45 and K42:K45)
For the other two funds, their relative rate changes have been much narrower so I am just being conservative. I expect they'll keep a significant amount of Repos around since they greatly increase liquidity with minimal downside risk.
