“Regarding the issuance period, 12.3% of the sales in the Direct Treasury in the month corresponded to securities with maturities over 10 years.

The sale of Treasury Direct bonds is one of the ways the government raises funds to pay debts and honor commitments. On the other hand, the National Treasury returns the amount invested with a correction that varies according to the chosen indicator, such as the Selic rate, inflation rates, the exchange rate or a rate defined in advance in the case of pre-fixed papers.
