A Treasury index is an index that is based on recent auctions of US Treasury notes and is widely used as a benchmark when calculating interest rates, such as mortgage rates. These indexes are created and published by various financial firms like Vanguard, Fidelity, and Northern Trust. They may also serve as the foundation for Treasury mutual funds launched by these firms.
