BTr rejects offers for 3-year T-bonds and T-bills.
Investors demanded greater yields for government assets due to expectations of more increases in the Federal Reserve’s main interest rates, which led to a complete rejection of all bids during an auction on Wednesday.
The average rate for the 91-day Treasury bill (T-bill) would have increased to 4.768 percent from 4.220 percent during the auction last October 24 if the Bureau of the Treasury (BTr) had completely accepted offers.
The 181-day paper’s rates would have increased as well, to 5.284 percent, and the 362-day paper’s to 5.798 percent.
During the auction last October 24, they were at 4.650 percent for the 182-day and 4.875 percent for the 364-day period.
All tenors were made available by the BTr for PHP5 billion apiece, however only the three-month paper attracted bids that exceeded the volume of the offer.
There were PHP8.485 billion in tenders for the 91-day period, PHP4.930 billion for the 181-day period, and PHP2.67 billion for the 362-day period.
If the auction committee had chosen to award the debt paper, the rate on the three-year Treasury bond (T-bond) would have increased from 4.210 percent to 6.763 percent.
Bids reached PHP36.336 billion when it was auctioned for PHP35 billion.
