U.S. Treasury reported foreign accounts bought $78.2 B in net U.S. assets

U.S. Treasury reported foreign accounts bought $78.2 B in net U.S. assets in December, following purchases of $77.3 B in November (revised from $73.1 B). That brought the 2019 total to $384.8 B, compared to $531.1 B in 2018. Also, overseas players bought $85.6 B in net long term assets in December, after $27.1 B in November (revised from $22.9 B). In fact, it's fourth consecutive monthly increase, with gains in 8 of the last 9 months. It's also the largest since the $98.2 B in June. Total 2019 purchases were $69.9 B, versus $741.8 B in 2018. But, private accounts bought $438.5 B while official accounts sold -$368.6 B. Additionally, foreigners bought $48.7 B in Treasury coupons in December, and $197.6 B in 2019, while official accounts sold -$7.6 B coupons in December and liquidated -$332.2 B last year. The Cayman Islands and Belgium (often custodian accounts) were the largest purchasers of Treasury notes and bonds in December at $8.1 B and $5.1 B, respectively, while China was the largest seller at -$19.3 B, followed by Brazil at -$11.5 B. Treasuries held abroad totaled nearly $6.7 tln at the end of 2019, versus $6.3 tln at the end of 2018. Japan remains the largest holder at $1.15 tln followed by China $1.07 tln.
