MANILA – The rates of treasury bills (T-bills) closed either flat or little changed on Tuesday amid the strong demand for the debt securities.

The average rate of the 91-day T-bill was unchanged at 1.077 percent while it was sideways for the 182-day at 1.405 percent, and the 364-day paper at 1.616 percent.

The rate of the 182-day paper during the T-bill auction last August 23 was at 1.408 percent, and the 364-day’s rate at 1.612 percent.

All tenors were offered for PHP5 billion and the auction committee made full awards across-the-board.

Total tenders for the three-month paper reached PHP15.584 billion while it amounted to PHP22.646 billion for the six-month paper and PHP16.955 billion for the one-year paper.
