Foreign Demand for Long-Term U.S. Securities$61.8 B$93.9 B

Highlights
Heavy selling of foreign stocks and bonds by U.S. accounts inflated headline net inflow of long-term securities, at $93.9 billion in April. U.S. accounts sold a net $71.4 billion of foreign securities, split roughly evenly between stocks and bonds, while foreign accounts bought a net $22.5 billion of U.S. securities which is a moderate total. Foreign buying was centered in U.S. government agency bonds and also equities where net inflow was a solid $4.9 billion in the month. Private foreign accounts were unusually large buyers of U.S. Treasuries, at $43.5 billion, which was offset however by $48.3 billion of selling by foreign central banks. There's no evidence of Chinese trade retaliation in April's data as the country's holdings of U.S. Treasuries held steady at $1.182 trillion.
