Mexico also sold all 8.5 billion pesos in 175-day bills it auctioned, the bank said.
The yield at auction on the one-month notes fell nine basis points, or 0.09 percentage point, to 4.18 percent from the previous auction on March 6, the bank said.
The nation’s Finance Ministry seeks to sell this quarter an average of 7 billion pesos of one-month notes weekly and an average of 8 billion pesos of those maturing in three months each week, the ministry said Dec. 15. Mexico will sell at least 3.5 billion pesos weekly of the 28-day Cetes and at least 4 billion pesos each week of 91-day bills during this quarter, it said.
