**economyst**, Thursday, July 30, 2009 at 6:11pmfirst calculate the annual equivalence

(1+.053/2)^2 = 1.0537 ergo, the equivalent annual rate is 5.37%

Let the monthly equivalent rate be x.

So (1+x/12)^12 = 1.0537

12ln(1+x/12) = ln(1.0537) = .0523078

ln(1+x/12) = .00435898

(1+x/12) = e(.00435898) = 1.0043685

x/12 = .0043685

x = .05242

annual rate is 5.242%
