We are going to have to re-check our formulas – this is the biggest gap that we have had between the estimated rate and the actual rate in a long time. Our formulas haven’t changed, maybe they changed theirs.2010-11-18 21:52, By: Gfw, IP: [24.148.10.164]

L3: December Interest RateI am puzzled by your post Gordon. You estimated 1.85% and it came in 1.83% for December. There are older months with .03% and .04% variances between estimated and actual. December’s estimate looks pretty good to me. Ken2010-12-15 05:07, By: Ken, IP: [71.192.121.212]

L4: December Interest RateAt the end of last month, the original variance was much greater – somewhere around 5 to 6 basis points.
The variance numbers that that you are looking at are from the new formula – we did backwards adjustments to previous calculations so that we could see how the new formula stacks up.
While we are getting closer, we are also still playing with the formula.2010-12-15 11:14, By: Gfw, IP: [24.148.10.164]
