Trading 07 nov 2018 Donner votre avis

Finishing off this week's series of long-term securities auctions, the Treasury Department sold $19 billion worth of thirty-year bonds on Wednesday, attracting below average demand.

The thirty-year bond auction drew a high yield of 3.418 percent and a bid-to-cover ratio of 2.06.

Last month, the Treasury sold $15 billion worth of thirty-year bonds, drawing a high yield of 3.344 percent and a bid-to-cover ratio of 2.42.

The bid-to-cover ratio is a measure of demand that indicates the amount of bids for each dollar worth of securities being sold.

The ten previous thirty-year bond auctions had an average bid-to-cover ratio of 2.32.

Today's thirty-year bond auction came after the Treasury sold $37 billion worth of three-year notes on Monday and $27 billion worth of ten-year notes on Tuesday.
