March ended a few days ago, and investors are already worried about new BOT and BTP auctions. Here is the April calendar.
It begins on April 5 with the announcement of the auction of BOTs, Treasury bills.
Then the next day, April 6, the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF) will publish a press release with auctions of BTPs and medium-term securities. Due to the Easter holidays, the BOT auction will be held on April 12, 2023, while the medium/long-term securities auction will be held on April 13.

However, the details of the auctions along with the characteristics of the government bonds and the relative calendar of the subscription operations will be published via a press release issued by the Ministry of Economy and Finance.

Considerations for April 2023 Auctions
After a very quiet first 15 days of April in terms of placement auctions for BOTs and BTPs, the second half of the month will be much more “roaring”.
Among other things, as can be seen from the calendar, the second two weeks of April are marked by successive placement auctions and overlapping dates.
Indeed, unusually on April 21 there will be two important dates: the call BOT auction and the short-term BTP auction.
