The Federal Reserve yesterday announced the results of its term-auction facility, selling $12.629 billion of 17-day credits at a 0.528% stop-out rate, the lowest rate at which the offering amount clears, which is the sole rate awarded to all the successful bids.

The bid-to-cover ratio was 0.08. Bids at the stop-out rate were prorated at 100% and resulting awards were rounded to the nearest $10,000, except that all awards below $10,000 are rounded up to $10,000.
