The National Treasury Management Agency said it is planning one bond auction and three Treasury Bill auctions for the first quarter of 2021. 

The bond auction is scheduled for March 11, with Treasury Bill auctions planned for January 21, February 18 and March 18. 

Details of the auctions will be announced on the Monday before each auction.

The NTMA raised €5.5 billion yesterday with an issue of 10-year bonds at a negative yield. 

In December, the agency said it plans to borrow between €16 billion and €20 billion on the bond market in 2021, down from €24 billion borrowed in 2020.
