The Treasury Department auctioned $15 billion in 30-year bonds at a high yield of 2.902 percent Thursday.
The bid-to-cover ratio, an indicator of demand, was 2.11, well below a 10-auction average of 2.30. Indirect bidders, which include major central banks, were awarded 54.5 percent, below a recent average of 62 percent. Direct bidders, which includes domestic money managers, bought 12.5 percent, above an average of 9 percent.
The auction took place following two lackluster sales earlier this week.
The yield on the 30-year Treasury bond traded at 2.917 following the sale and hit its highest level since Jan. 12. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note was also higher, at around 2.106 percent.
