Foreign Demand for Long-Term U.S. Securities$80.9 B$23.2 B

Highlights
Foreign buying of U.S. long-term securities was flat in October limiting the month's net inflow to only $23.2 billion. Foreign accounts, both private and especially official, were sellers of Treasuries though private accounts did show some appetite for corporate bonds and government agencies. But, for a second month in a row, it was the stock market that caught foreign interest as private accounts were net buyers to the tune of $13.4 billion following September's $23.2 billion inflow. These are very large readings for U.S. equities which helped offset selling in Treasuries and made for $7.5 billion of net inflow from foreign accounts. Adding to the headline inflow was selling of foreign securities by U.S. accounts, at a net $15.7 billion. U.S. accounts were sellers of foreign bonds but buyers of foreign equities.
