Quarterly financing

Definition:

February 15, May 15, August 15 and November 15, or next working day offerings of several "coupon" security issues. Quarterly issues currently consist of a 3-year note, a 10-year note, and a 30-year bond. The Treasury sometimes offers additional amounts of outstanding long-term notes or bonds, rather than selling new security issues. See: Reopening.
