Treasury auctions U.S. 3-year note at highest yield since 2007

NEW YORK, Sept 11 (Reuters) - The U.S. Treasury Department on Tuesday sold $35 billion of three-year government notes, the largest offering at this maturity since 2010, at a high yield of 2.821 percent, the highest since May 2007, Treasury data showed.

The ratio of bids to the amount of three-year debt offered was 2.68, higher than 2.65 in August and 2.51 in July which was the lowest reading since April 2009. Indirect bidders, who are used as a proxy for foreign demand, took 46.28 percent of the supply, higher than 42.68 percent in August, but lower than the average of 51.22 percent.
