T-bills auction sees a 26.7% drop in interest rates as govt secures GHS4.83Bbn

Interest rates have seen a consistent decline over the past ten weeks, with demand for treasury bills remaining robust despite potential risks.

As anticipated by analysts, interest rates have decreased to reflect the downward trend in inflation rates.

Sharp Decline in Yields in February 2024

Yields experienced a significant decrease in February 2024, driven by strong liquidity in the money market, which outweighed any potential risks from the unexpected increase in January 2024 inflation.

The yield on the 91-day bill decreased by 131 basis points month-on-month to 27.3%, while the 182-day bill saw a decline of 135 basis points to 29.8%. Similarly, the yield on the 364-day bill fell by 150 basis points to 30.3%.
