The auction will take place at the top of the hour
the US Treasury will auction 24 billion reopened 30-year bonds at the peak of the hour (29 years and 10 months).
The half-yearly averages of the main components of recent auctions show:
- Bid to cover, 2.31x
- Direct (a measure of domestic demand), 19.1%
- Indirect (a measure of international demand), 62.7%
- Dealers (dealers mop up remaining volume), 18.1%
The yield from the last auction was 1.91%. The current year 30 is trading around 2.05%. That’s down about -5.6 basis points on the day.
Yesterday, the Treasury auctioned 38 billion 10-year reopened notes with decent demand from domestic and international bidders.
