Treasury Auctions $29 Billion Worth Of Seven-Year Notes

Finishing off this week's series of long-term securities auction, the Treasury Department sold $29 billion worth of seven-year notes on Wednesday.

The seven-year note auction drew a high yield of 1.26 percent and a bid-to-cover ratio of 2.65.

The Treasury also sold $29 billion worth of seven-year notes last month, drawing a high yield of 1.416 percent and a bid-to-cover ratio of 2.60.

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 drew an average yield of 2.70 percent.

The seven-year note auction came after the Treasury sold $35 billion worth of two-year notes on Monday and $35 billion worth of five-year notes on Wednesday.
