Three-Year Note Auction Attracts Below Average Demand

(RTTNews) - The Treasury Department announced the results of its auction of $38 billion worth of three-year notes on Tuesday, revealing the auction attracted below average demand.

The three-year note auction drew a high yield of 1.573 percent and a bid-to-cover ratio of 2.42.

Last month, the Treasury also sold $38 billion worth of three-year notes, drawing a high yield of 1.562 percent and a bid-to-cover ratio of 2.41.

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 three-year note auctions had an average bid-to-cover ratio of 2.50.

Looking ahead, the Treasury is due to announce the results of its auctions of $24 billion worth of ten-year notes and $16 billion worth of thirty-year bonds on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively.
