Abstract: We show that Treasury security prices in the secondary market decrease significantly before auctions and recover shortly after. Hence, Treasury security prices tend to be lower on auction days, implying a large issuance cost for the Treasury Department, which is estimated to be 9-18 basis points of the auction size (amounts to over half a billion dollars for issuing Treasury notes in 2007). These results appear to be consistent with the hypothesis of dealers’ limited risk-bearing capacity and the imperfect capital mobility of Treasury investors, highlighting the important role of capital mobility even in the most liquid financial markets.
