The thirty-year bond auction drew a high yield of 2.270 percent and a bid-to-cover ratio of 2.22.
Last month, the Treasury sold $19 billion worth of thirty-year bonds, drawing a high yield of 2.335 percent and a bid-to-cover ratio of 2.24.
The bid-to-cover ratio is a measure of demand that indicates the amount of bids for each dollar worth of securities being sold.

Earlier this week, the Treasury revealed its auction of $38 billion worth of three-year notes attracted below average demand, while its auction of $24 billion worth of ten-year notes attracted slightly above average demand.
