The Public Treasury, a body dependent on the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation, expects to place next week between 8,750 million euros and 11,250 million in two auctions of 6 and 12-month bills and bonds and obligations of the State, thus beginning the emissions corresponding to the month of May.

Specifically, the Treasury expects to place between 4,500 million and 5,500 million euros in 6- and 12-month bills on Tuesday, May 3. In the last issue of these references, the Public Treasury raised 5,100 million, with a marginal interest of -0.542% for 6-month bills and -0.277% for 12-month bills.

For its part, on Thursday, May 5, it expects to raise between 4,250 million euros and 5,750 million with the auction of four references of State bonds and obligations, including one indexed to inflation.

Specifically, the public body will auction 5-year government bonds, with a 0% coupon and maturity on January 31, 2027; State bonds for 7 years, with a coupon of 0.80% and maturity on July 30, 2029; 50-year State bonds, with a 1.45% coupon and maturity on October 31, 2071; and 15-year inflation-indexed government bonds with a 0.7% coupon and maturity on November 30, 2033.
