The US Treasury is set to sell a combined $190 billion in bills this week, marking the biggest weekly T-bill issuance in nearly nine months as it has ramped up short-term borrowing to finance a growing federal deficit.
The Treasury said on Monday it will sell $50 billion in four-week, or one-month bills, up from $45 billion the week before.
It will auction $30 billion in eight-week, or two-month bills, more than the $25 billion sold last week.
It will also sell $26 billion in 52-week, or one-year, T-bills on Tuesday.
On Monday, it auctioned $45 billion in three-month bills and $39 billion in six-month bills, the same amounts as a week earlier.
The ratio of bids to the amount of latest three-month bills offered was 3.07, the highest reading since June 18.
