Hungary's Government Debt Management Agency (AKK) sold the announced HUF 50 billion twelve-month discount T-bills at an auction on Thursday as oversubscription dropped from two weeks earlier.
Yields declined from the previous auction but were over the respective secondary market benchmark.
AKK sold HUF 50 billion of the bills expiring on December 27, the announced volume. It raised the announced amount to HUF 50 billion for the current auction from HUF 45 billion it auctioned so far this year.

Yields ranged between 7.59% and 7.76%, down from a range of 7.77%-7.89% on February 2.
