Treasury Securities
Interest-bearing obligations of the US government issued by the Treasury as a means of borrowing; money to meet government expenditures not covered by Tax revenues.
    
Marketable Treasury securities fall into three categories- bills, Notes, and bonds. Marketable Treasury obligations are currently issued in book-entry form only; that is, the purchaser receives a Statement, rather than an engraved certificate.

Treasury securities are government bonds issued by the United States Department of the Treasury through the Bureau of the Public Debt. They are the Debt financing instruments of the U.S. Federal government, and they are often referred to simply as Treasuries or Treasurys.

Treasury bills, Treasury Notes, Treasury bonds, and Treasury Inflation Protected Securities (TIPS)are four types of marketable treasury securities. There are several types of non-marketable treasury securities including State and Local Government Series (SLGS), Government Account Series Debt issued to government-managed Trust funds, and Savings bonds. All of the marketable Treasury securities are very liquid and are heavily traded on the Secondary Market. The non-marketable securities (such as savings bonds) are issued to subscribers and cannot be transferred through market sales.
