U.S. Treasury cuts borrowing estimate for fourth quarter
NEW YORK (Reuters) – The U.S. Treasury said on Monday said it plans to borrow $617 billion in the fourth quarter, lower than the August estimate, with the decline due to the department’s higher cash balance at the beginning of October.
The $617-billion estimate assumes an end-December cash balance of $800 billion, the Treasury said in a statement.
The Treasury also said it issued $454 billion in net debt in the third quarter, ending the three-month period with a cash balance of $1.782 trillion. In the July to September quarter, the Treasury said it issued $454 bln in net debt.
