There was a greater than average number of bids, and the domestic buyers were about average. However, the international buyers were less than the six month average. There was a positive tail of 1.4 basis points higher than the six month average of 0.9 basis points, and the dealers were saddled with more of the auction then average.

It is a Fed meeting week. So perhaps there is some apprehension to “getting involved”. Nevertheless, the 3-year note auction was not so great, and the 10-year follows in those sluggish footsteps.
