The demand during the auction exceeded supply by almost two times – banks submitted applications for 464.83 million manats. The entire amount put up for auction was sold.

The applications were submitted at the price of 99.19 manats (with a yield of 10.14 percent) and 99.2004 manats (10.01 percent).

The deadline for the payment on notes is Jan. 4, 2018.

Short-term notes are a tool of monetary policy to regulate money supply in circulation. Only banks can obtain notes.
