30 Year Auction Prices At Highest Yield Since July 2011

The 10 Year may so far be contained below its multi-year high of 3.00% hit in September just before Bernanke’s “no taper” announcement, but the ultra long end, or the 30 Year, keeps dropping. Sure enough, moments ago the latest 30 Year reopening of 29 Year-11 Month CUSIP RD2 priced at a high yield of 3.900%. This may have been half a bp through the 3.905% When Issued, it still was the highest pricing yield on the 30 Year since July 2011, right before the US downgrade and the 20% S&P plunge resulting from the near debt ceiling breach. The Bid To Cover of 2.35 was modestly higher than last month’s 2.16 but had a ways to go to catch up to the TTM average of 2.48. In terms of allotment, Indirects got the bulk of the auction, with 46% or the highest take down since April 2011. Directs were allotted 12.5%, or the lowest since June, which meant Dealers would have to “sell” back to the Fed 41.4% of the auction. So while not as immediately stirring as yesterday’s very weak 10 Year, the sentiment toward the long end continues to deteriorate.
