The government overturned its recent under-subscription of treasury bills sales to record about 15% oversubscription of its targeted amount of ¢2.08 billion.
However, that was primarily due to a reduction in the targeted amount.
According to figures from the Bank of Ghana, the government got about ¢2.4 billion from the T-bills auction across the 91-day and 182-day.
Once again, the chunk of the bids came from the 91-day bill.
A little over ¢1.59 billion were tendered by the investors for the 3-month financial instrument.
The government accepted over 99% of the bids.
For the 182-day T-bill, about ¢816 million were tendered by the investors, largely the banks. All the bids were subsequently accepted.
Meanwhile, interest rates continued to surge on the money market.
The 91-day T-bill shot up by 0.36% to 21.15%, whilst the 182-day T-bill also went up to 23.93%, from 23.62% the previous week.
Again, analysts and market watchers are worried about the rising cost of T-bills, as government still restructure its debt.
|Securities||Bids Tendered (GH¢)||Bids Accepted (GH¢)|
|91 Day Bill||1.593 billion||1.593 billion|
|182 Day Bill||816.42 million||816.42 million|
