U.S. 30-year bond sold at lowest yield in 15 months

NEW YORK, April 11 (Reuters) - The U.S. Treasury Department on Thursday sold $16 billion of 30-year government bonds at a yield of 2.930%, which was the lowest yield for this debt maturity at an auction since January 2018, according to Treasury data.

The ratio of bids to the amount of the reopened 30-year issue was 2.25, unchanged from the prior 30-year bond sale, which was also worth $16 billion, held in March. (Reporting by Richard Leong; Editing by Bernadette Baum)
