Using Bank CDs in MonteCarlo Portfolio

How can I add Bank CDs in a Monte Carlo Portfolio? I'm thinking of using the intermediate government bonds as a proxy. Most of my CDs are 5 year and I roll them over upon maturity. For a while each rollover resulted in a lower rate of return but that's now changing. Appreciate any suggestions.

That's probably what I would do since the intermediate term bond is about a 5 or 6 year "duration" window. (but I don't use the MC much myself)
