Must-know: Market demand rises for 6-month Treasury bills
The US Treasury held weekly auctions for three Treasury bill maturities last week—the four-week, 13-week, and 26-week Treasury bills (or T-bills). A total of $52 billion worth of T-bills were auctioned. Treasury bills mature in a year or less. They’re at the very short end of the yield curve. Other Treasury securities like Treasury notes (IEF) and bonds (TBF) are issued for longer maturities.
