U.S. Treasury sells $25 billion of 30 year bonds

The U.S. Treasury sold 25,000,000,030 year bonds at a high yield of 1.94%. That was a whopping 5.2 basis points above the WI level of 1.888% just before the auction:
  • High yield 1.94%
  • WI yield 1.888%
  • Bid to cover 2.2X vs 2.29X six month average
  • Tail 5.2 basis points
  • dealers 25.23% versus 17.3% six month average
  • indirect 59.0% versus 64.3% six month average
  • directs 15.8% versus 18.4% six month average
Auction grade: F
There was nothing good about the new 30 year bond auction as it tailed by 5.2 bps. The average of the last six months was a scant 0.5 basis points.  Bid the cover was low. Dealers are left with a big percentage. International demand was week as was the domestic demand.
