Three-Year Note Auction Attracts Below Average Demand

Kicking off this week’s series of long-term securities auctions, the Treasury Department sold $31 billion worth of three-year notes on Tuesday, attracting below average demand.

The three-year note auction drew a high yield of 2.664 percent and a bid-to-cover ratio of 2.76.

Last month, the Treasury sold $30 billion worth of three-year notes, drawing a high yield of 2.450 percent and a bid-to-cover ratio of 2.85.

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 2.94.

Looking ahead, the Treasury is due to sell $25 billion worth of ten-year notes on Wednesday and $17 billion worth of thirty-year bonds on Thursday.
