The Government Debt Management Agency (ÁKK) sold more than planned five- and ten-year bonds and sold the announced volume of three-year bonds at an auction on Thursday. ÁKK sold a combined HUF 61 bln of bonds at the auction, HUF 6 bln more than planned.
Demand was more than double of the offer. Yields fell from the previous auction and were slightly under Wednesday's respective benchmarks.
