Record-Setting Treasury Securities Auction Data


05/28/2024 — 05/28/2024Released As NeededLast Updated 05/28/2024
Record-Setting Treasury Securities Auction Data provides record highs and lows from U.S. Treasury auctions. This includes lowest and highest rates/yields, highest offering amount, and highest bid-to-cover ratios as well as the dates for these record-setting auctions. The data also indicates the security type and term. Security types include Treasury Bills, Treasury Notes, Treasury Bonds, Cash Management Bills (CMBs), Floating Rate Notes (FRNs), and Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS). Security terms range from a few days for CMBs to 30-year securities. The U.S. Treasury uses an auction process to sell these marketable securities and determine their rate or yield. Marketable securities can be bought, sold, or transferred after they are originally issued.
