NYSE Current U.S. Treasury Indexes:

The four NYSE Current U.S. Treasury Indexes (AXTWO, AXFIV, AXTEN, AXTHR) are one-security fixed income indexes that consist of the most recently issued respective 2-year, 5-year, 10-year, and 30-year U.S. Treasury notes. The indexes intend to track the performance of current on-the-run U.S. government bonds. The indexes are rebalanced monthly effective after the close of trading of the last business day of the month. At that time, each index’s bond along with any relevant accrued interest and coupon payments received will be rolled into a new U.S. Treasury security if one was more recently issued during the month.

The indexes are published each day that the U.S. bond markets are open for trading from approximately 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM EST. The divisor for each index was determined to yield a benchmark value of 1000.00 at the close of trading on February 27, 2009
