WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Department of the Treasury today announced its current estimates of net marketable borrowing for the January – March 2017 and April – June 2017 quarters:
- During the January – March 2017 quarter, Treasury expects to borrow $57 billion in net marketable debt, assuming an end-of-March cash balance of $100 billion. The borrowing estimate is $1 billion higher than announced in October 2016.
- During the April – June 2017 quarter, Treasury expects to borrow $1 billion in net marketable debt, assuming an end-of-June cash balance of $200 billion.
During the October – December 2016 quarter, Treasury borrowed $255 billion in net marketable debt and ended the quarter with a cash balance of $399 billion. In October 2016, Treasury estimated net marketable borrowing of $188 billion and assumed an end-of-December cash balance of $390 billion. The increased borrowing was driven primarily by lower receipts and higher outlays.
