Two-Year Note Auction Attracts Average Demand

Kicking off this week’s series of announcements of the results of its long-term securities auctions, the Treasury Department revealed Tuesday that this month’s auction of $60 billion worth of two-year notes attracted average demand.

The two-year note auction drew a high yield of 0.152 percent and a bid-to-cover ratio of 2.54.

Last month, the Treasury also sold $60 billion worth of two-year notes, drawing a high yield of 0.119 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 two-year note auctions had an average bid-to-cover ratio of 2.54.

Looking ahead, the Treasury is due to announce the results of its auction of $61 billion worth of five-year notes on Wednesday and the results of its auction of $62 billion worth of seven-year notes on Thursday.
