Federal government to sell $67B in Treasury securities next week

ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — The government says it will sell $67 billion in Treasury securities next week as part of its regular quarterly refunding auctions.

The Treasury Department also announced today that it will buy back a small amount of securities from market dealers in the fourth quarter to test the computer systems for such transactions.

Treasury said it will sell $27 billion in 3-year notes, $24 billion in 10-year notes and $16 billion in 30-year bonds in the auctions next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

The money raised would be part of the $192 billion that Treasury expects to borrow in the July-September quarter to keep the government operating. That amount is $22 billion higher than previous estimates.
