The Treasury Department sold $29 billion worth of seven-year notes on Wednesday on the heels of the sale of $35 billion worth of five-year notes on Tuesday.
The seven-year note auction drew a high yield of 1.233 percent and a bid-to-cover ratio of 2.72.
Last month, the Treasury also sold $29 billion worth of seven-year notes, drawing a high yield of 1.045 percent and a bid-to-cover ratio of 2.81.
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 seven-year note auctions had an average bid-to-cover ratio of 2.75.
