With regard to a bond trade, what is significance of "bid to cover"?

1 Answer

"Bid to cover" compares the number of bids received for a certain bond in a Treasury auction to the number of bids accepted. Amounts can also be compared, but the significance is the same in both cases: they reflect the demand for a particular bond. A high bid to cover ratio shows a high demand.
