Three-Year Note Auction Attracts Average Demand

Kicking off this week's announcements of the results of its long-term securities auctions, the Treasury Department revealed Tuesday that its auction of $48 billion worth of three-year notes attracted average demand.

The three-year note auction drew a high yield of 0.179 percent and a bid-to-cover ratio of 2.44.

Last month, the Treasury sold $46 billion worth three-year notes, drawing a high yield of 0.190 percent and a bid-to-cover ratio of 2.44.

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 2.46.

The Treasury is due to announce the results of its auction of $38 billion worth of ten-year notes on Wednesday and the results of its auction of $26 billion worth of thirty-year bonds on Thursday.
