The Treasury Department finished off this week’s announcements of the results of its long-term securities auctions on Thursday, revealing that its auction of $16 billion worth of thirty-year bonds attracted modestly above average demand.

The thirty-year bond auction drew a high yield of 1.320 percent and a bid-to-cover ratio of 2.36.

Last month, the Treasury sold $19 billion worth of thirty-year bonds, drawing a high yield of 2.061 percent and a bid-to-cover ratio of 2.43

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 thirty-year bond auctions had an average bid-to-cover ratio of 2.30.

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