Treasury Auctions and CD Rates
August 6, 2023 :: A review of the upcoming U.S. Treasury Auctions and some of the best CD rates available nationwide.
Last week Treasury announced its borrowing estimates for the July to September 2023 quarter and the October to December 2023 quarter.
During the July – September 2023 quarter, Treasury expects to borrow $1.007 trillion in privately-held net marketable debt, assuming an end-of-September cash balance of $650 billion. The borrowing estimate is $274 billion higher than announced in May 2023, primarily due to the lower beginning-of-quarter cash balance ($148 billion) and higher end-of-quarter cash balance ($50 billion), as well as projections of lower receipts and higher outlays ($83 billion).
During the October – December 2023 quarter, Treasury expects to borrow $852 billion in privately-held net marketable debt, assuming an end-of-December cash balance of $750 billion.
In the Quarterly Refunding Statement, Treasury outlined the auction sizes for various maturities. “The table below presents, in billions of dollars, the actual auction sizes for the May to July 2023 quarter and the anticipated auction sizes for the August to October 2023 quarter:”
