Recently, I began exploring investment opportunities through the US Treasury at www.treasurydirect.gov. This week, I:
- Set up an account at TreasuryDirect
- Scheduled an ACH debit to occur on the May 2 auction
- Ordered a $1000 28-day T-bill
I chose the 28-day term and $1000 amount mainly because I am doing this to "test the waters" and get the hang of how it all works before I commit (if I commit) to a longer term bill. So far, the process has been really smooth.
