"Horrible" 30 Year Bond Auction Prices With Unprecedented 11 bps Tail

Tyler Durden's picture


The just completed auction of $16 billion in 30 Year bonds, was, as Rick Santelli said, "a failure". And while this may be a little dramatic, this was without doubt one of the ugliest 30 Year auctions ever seen. The 30 year priced at 3.75%, a huge 11 bps tail to the When Issued which was trading at 3.64%, the Bid To Cover plunging from 2.80 to 2.05, the lowest since February 2009, and, most shockingly, the Indirect Bidders Imploded to a paltry 12.2%! Those wondering if Chinese posturing would led to anything more than just jawboning have their answer. The Indirect tendered bids were just $3 billion or about 20% of the total auction size, which resulted in a $2 billion take down. It was so bad that the Directs were for the first time in 30 Year history greater than the Indirects. And yes, while the yield was close to record low it won't stay there especially if as is now expected, August 26 will see the BEA report a second GDP revision of ~0.6% at 8:30 am, which will be promptly followed by Bernanke's 2011 Jackson Hole address. And so the yoyo continues: what today's auction has proven is that going forward the Fed will be forced to crash the market every day that there is a Treasury auction, while ramping stocks on days when Treasury does not need to fund its borrowing binge.

And what happened to the UST curve post the auction:

And a quick recap from Bloomberg: "Horrible auction,” RBS strategist Bill O’Donnell writes in client note. Dealers take 68.3%, “largest share of the auction since the unhinged markets of Nov, 2008. It may be a while before the markets get 30yrs priced on the curve appropriate to the Fed’s actions earlier this week"

It was released on 8 May 2009 by Gold Typhoon.As soon as released in its first week, it started at the third on local music charts in Taiwan, but then rose to the first. This album was released after 10 months Jing Chang getting the champion of Super Idol. Thanks.

Antiques are usually objects which show some degree of craftsmanship, or a certain attention to design such as a desk or an early automobile. They are most often bought at antique shops, or passed down as an estate. Some valuable antiques can be bought from antique dealers and auction services or purchased online through websites and online auctions. Thanks.

Study each pitcher's particular pitching tendencies. Pitchers usually have one or two pitches that they favor over their other pitches. Therefore, if a player understands what the pitcher likes to throw and in what situations he prefers to throw them, this can help the batter be a more disciplined hitter at home plate. Thanks for sharing.

Absolutely.  The FED will do this until the swings become too great that people leave the markets (the ones left) for good.  
Then QE3 will be cemented.  Just too much debt has to be sold at too low of rates.  That has to come from somewhere.

If you abide by the theory that QE3 will be announce on Aug 26 at Jackson Hole, then the sell off in stocks will probably continue until then and therefore force yields lower.  My guess on the best time to refi will be Aug. 25, right before QE3.

I took it out in like 2005 I think, at 3.5%.  It has moved up and down a bit, adjusts yearly, 1 point max per year, 7.5% up limit, no down limit.  It is impaired, as WF just registered it earlier this year.  They wanted to refi me. I said no thanks, then they registered it with the registrar of deeds.

It has a max rate of 7.5%, so it cannot break me from interest rate alone.  Only can go up 1 point per year as well, so it would be 5+ years before I hit the top rate again.  If (when) TSHTF, I got a bug out spot and could really just up an leave with the door locked and the power off. Pretty stable area, but always have backup.

During a recession, rates stay low. The Fed's "2013" promise is leading to expectations that the economy will stay bad and ZIRP will stay in place for a long time--so long that 2% looks like a reasonable yield to enough people at 10Y.

Not at 30, evidently. Would be interesting to look at TIPS (no time at the moment) to see how the moves at the long end there compare.

    Do the new owners of the 10's and 30's (whomever they might be) think they can put on a realistic hedge against decline in value? One that will actually pay-off in the event of unforeseen abnormalities?


    Maybe they think their hedge against the 10's is more secure and has a certainty of paying-off, where as the 30's are so far away, even they don't have certainty of it working.

That doesn't include the supply / demand equation. It's basic economics. The transactions are being swamped by supply. There isn't enough free cash floating around to handle this supply hitting the market.

Thu, 08/11/2011 - 14:02 | 1551523 Greater Fool
Greater Fool's picture

Of course it includes a supply / demand consideration. There is no cash shortage; the most recent 10Y came in with record bids and was well inside the WI.

Real-money folks want more yield at that point in the term structure. Asset managers who care about their VaR are looking to shorten their duration, so more yield is needed to entice investors to take on the risk. The action of supply and demand tells you about expectations of where the interest rate / inflation risks are.

Yields on the 30 year UST rose because demand (especially from indirect bidders), or the "takedown," was unusually weak.

At the beginning of the auction (actually, technically, prior to), the 30 year U.S. Treasury was only offering 3.64% yield on these notes, but that yield rose 11 basis points (just over one tenth of one percent) because no one, not even direct bidders, apparently were interested in it at the "when issued" price.

"When Issued" =

Securities term for when and if issued, referring most often to conditional trading in bonds or other securities in the interval between the announcement date and the actual date of issue. Securities dealers trade offerings of new securities, stock splits, and government securities, among others, in the period before the effective listing date. Although the U.S. Treasury Department tries to discourage trading in Treasury securities on a when issued basis, government securities dealers frequently can arrange preauction bond swaps (yield swaps) for the issue to be offered for sale.

wasn't this auction swimming against the flow back into equities? which was caused in large part by the Feds announcement of ZIRP forever? and so isn't the Fed the victim of its own success, AND the yield curve steepens which is good the financials? all i see is win win, rates are still historically low, and the Fed promises to keep them that way. the only part that seems questionable in their goal of market stability, is this -can they keep both the bond and stock market on a upward trajectory. the problem in the private sector is the banks can't or won't lend the money the Fed places on their balance sheets, thus pushing the string, but if Fiscal Spending craps out, its the same problem.

If you create money out of thin air, and you create bonds out of thin air, and you use one to buy the other, do they really exist?

Only if they fall in value because then they are a liability and you must cover that liability.  If they ever fall in value, they will fall apart in value.  Now look at a chart of the long term yields on the 30 year and consider whether a break of trend there will be incremental or drastic .

The market has been churning the last few days, down, up, down, up and there's been an auction on each of the days. And today, the 30 year auction, is an up day. So obviously, the market was not force crashed today....

Computers are replacing the latter, by assigning each a number and performing algebraic reduction with positive feedback on compliant behavior, locking them into the black hole. Unless you write the code, you can only see the process by filtering out the misdirection in time delay mechanisms, through a necessary vortex, the abutment, which gives you the necessary lift-off.

Where you want to go is up to you, and depends entirely upon acute democratic participation at the threshold, as is who you decide to take along for the ride. We just provide the technology. Each gravitational orbit perceives it as digital, good and evil, right and wrong. The Corporation – public, private, and non-profit, along with its denizens, cannot think, consider, or love. All it can do is negotiate maximum current revenue at longest term cost, passing the genetic code from government to parent to child, to be reinforced by government again.

Only you as a unique individual seeking liberty have the ability to love, and it may only be passed on in person, by example. The choice is raising intelligent children or becoming part of the herd to be culled. Building a heart is much easier than changing a heart. You must be smarter than the new computer. The old system passed its tipping point yesterday. Systems are systems; people are people. Artificial deadlines/crises make time the enemy. What numbers control your life, replacing effectiveness on the event horizon with speed into the black hole? Are you training your brain or is the nexus programming you?

Under the new system, gravity is finely and roughly adjustable in gradients, but the AI will adapt very quickly. Only those capable of maintaining the necessary gap to deliver economic profit will escape the resulting highly efficient black hole. If you think about it, only the effective adjustment has changed, so you now have the entire algorithm. The global IC chip is pulling global capital into US Treasuries for slaughter, promising to prime the artificial demand pump again at any cost, and the Fed is splitting the feed to the stock market and agency, creating all the symptoms.

Inflation and deflation feed each other through the layers, creating all the misdirection in time delays, forming the shape of the black hole. California, for example, came up ½ billion short in July, requiring liquidation acceleration. Mark to market, for example, would be a spring release, and the result would depend upon timing of direction and force, how you deployed the profit in a resulting feedback loop to balance the reactor. Consider the position of Bank of America.

Why would anyone expect Americans to revolt when the rest of the world is being dragged into famine to give them so much free food that they can “afford” to throw it away? Of course BofA recommends Monsanto, stimulus dollars are flying everywhere, and the Fed is defending the oil economy with everything it has left.

Expect those who have not chosen love by now to play out the survivor game, as they watch their distribution crash. Do not go in for any reason; stay away from the famine. Focus on finding your niche in the new distribution. Expect the old system to desperately hunt you down. Give it the cattle numbers it wants when you travel “through” the herd, as you gauge the new “intelligent” computer. Remember to compensate for yourself as an instrument. Create the virtual observer, the heartless bastard, to balance your logic/emotion fulcrum and deliver the desired results in the feedback loop of feedback loops.

By all means, they must buy BMWs. Let those who believe in an infinite number of do-overs, family or no, to fall into the black hole. You may rely upon the Fourth Reich to assume that everyone is stupid, because it is stupid; it cannot think. It is ruled by and rules by emotional passion. The response is intelligent passion, which it cannot perceive, AI or no, which is why its algorithm seeks to destroy anything it does not understand.

Family Law is simply a catch-all to deprive the individual of liberty, ensured by common law, in violation of the US Constitution. Because it is the first layer in the divide and conquer system, enabling the rest, and it is locked, the Fed may only address symptoms, creating more symptoms, accelerating the black hole.

"There will be another crash, because there are too many players looking for the trillion dollar score."

"Only Germany can reverse the dynamic of a European decay,” billionaire investor George Soros wrote in today’s Handelsblatt, the Dusseldorf-based newspaper. “Germany and other countries with a AAA rating have to approve some sort of euro-bond regime. Otherwise, the euro will implode.”

Today, Gold, the 30 year treasury, and the CHF are all getting hit hard.

All Europen exchanges getting ready to ban equity short selling in unison, European banks facing deposit runs and on the verge of collapse, London landmarks being treated like kindling on a nightly basis… and the DOW rallying 400 points.

I guess US stocks are finally taking their rightful throne as the last, and most stable Safe Haven…

This liquidity driven slosh of hot money all over the world is pure insanity incarnate…

Pure insanity.

Starting to think some of the same thoughts

.gov or .euro debt all suck- the real bubble is DEBT!

Equities with strong earnings and Gold are the only alternatives to fiat and debt.

So, markets dont tank...... Perhaps?

For this reason, it is important to have the support of friends and family when you end your relationship in order to reduce the likelihood of returning. Once you leave your abusive boyfriend, it is also important to avoid isolation and to consider psychological counseling. Thanks a lot.

Big deal... The treasury will just roll short-dated TBills at zero percent since the Fed promised to peg short rates at 0% until a specific date in 2013 that just happens to be well past the next presidential election.
