The pricing of 30-day Government of Canada treasury bills will track Bank of Canada rates quite well. But, any yield change only applies to new purchases.

Those who bought 30-day treasury bills last week are stuck with the yield as of a week ago until it matures. They won't see any of the ¼% yield improvement until they reinvest at maturity in 30 days.

Retail investors don't pour into 30-day treasury bills because their yields are not attractive. Earlier this morning, BMO InvestorLine was offering Government of Canada treasury bills with 36 days to maturity, $5,000 minimum, for a yield of 2.928% after commissions. The BMO ISA's were yielding 4.35% with no commission.

Variable-rate GIC's that are based on a bank's prime rate can be used to closely track the Bank of Canada rate.

The tracking is not perfect as each lender doesn't have to transmit Bank of Canada rate changes immediately or entirely in its prime lending rate. TD and Royal Bank, for example, announced that their prime rate will increase ¼% effective tomorrow and not effective today, the day of the Bank of Canada increase.

The RBC one-year Prime-Linked Cashable GIC was still being offered today with a rate of RBC Prime minus 2.45% = 4.25%. Existing holders should earn 4½% starting tomorrow with the RBC Prime increasing to 6.95% then.

To be clear, these are not Scotia iTrade rates. They are Scotia ADS rates available at brokerages including Scotia iTrade. It is a common (and easily committed) error by a great many of us to associate rates on products with the broker/agent rather than the actual issuer.

Yes, took a week for them to move higher after June BOC announcement.

Just curious why the series F not mentioned?

F series ISAs from the various providers are not available to many DIY retail customers so I suspect it would be a waste of time and effort for Norman1 to display both. We should be happy Norman1 does this chart at all.

Every one of us can easily do the math for F series anyway. Use A series data and add 10-15bp, and if anyone wishes to be certain, look up the relevant ISA series on their own.

Scotia F series DYN6004 just increased to 5 per cent available to Scotia itrade account customers.
