Yields Spike After Ugly 10Y Auction Sees Biggest Tail Since April;

• by Tyler Durden

It wasn't quite as ugly as yesterday's 3Y auction, but it certainly wasn't pretty: moments ago the Treasury sold $35BN in a 10Y reopening (9Y-10M technically), which priced at another cycle high of 4.61%, above last month's 4.289%, and the highest since August 2007. The auction also tailed then 4.592% When Issued by 1.8bps, which was not only the biggest 10Y auction tail since April, but was the 8th consecutive auction without a stop through (last month's was on the screws).

The bid to cover printed at 2.50, down from 2.52 last month and the lowest since June.
