MADRID (Reuters) - Spain beat the top end of its targeted amount at a short-term debt auction on Tuesday, though financing costs jumped from previous record lows on investor concerns over global liquidity.
The Treasury sold 5.04 billion euros ($6.73 billion) of 6- and 12-month bills compared to target range of 4 billion to 5 billion euros.
The 6-month bill sold 1.09 billion euros at an average yield of 0.821 percent compared to 0.492 percent last month, at a bid-to-cover ratio of 3.8 after the bill was 4.7 times subscribed in May.
The 12-month bill, which sold 3.95 billion euros, fetched a yield of 1.395 percent after 0.994 percent in May. The bill was 2.1 times subscribed after 2 times last month. ($1 = 0.7492 euros)
