The government borrowed ¢11.26 billion through treasury bills in May 2023.
This represents 36.57% increase over the previous month.
The target for the month was estimated at ¢11.33 billion.
According to the trading results, the uptake almost covered the matured bills worth ¢11.42 billion.
The yields on the 91-day and 182-day bills surged 85 basis points and 91 basis points, respectively, to 20.80% and 23.62%.
Analysts believe the elevated yield on Bank of Ghana’s 56-day OMO bill will likely continue to present an upward risk to money market yields in June 2023.
