Foreign Demand for Long-Term U.S. Securities$6.3 B$5.9 B$53.4 B

Highlights
Foreign investors were solid buyers of long-term U.S. securities in February, at $35.9 billion, while U.S. investors were sellers of foreign long-term securities at $17.5 billion. Together, they make for a net inflow of $53.4 billion in the month. Foreign buying was concentrated in equities for a second straight month and also in corporate bonds which have been in heavy foreign demand. But demand for U.S. Treasuries was once again weak though both China, at $1.12 trillion, and Japan, at $1.06 trillion, increased their Treasury holdings in the month. February's data are a reminder that though the strong dollar hurts exports, it's a plus for investment inflow.

Definition
These Treasury data track the flows of financial instruments into and out of the United States. Instruments tracked include Treasury securities, agency securities, corporate bonds, and corporate equities.  Why Investors Care
