Fed fell $3B short of purchasing more USTs than foreigners. Scary stuff.

If I remember correctly, doesn't China purchase USTs through some UK broker so that it looks like the UK was the purchaser when in fact it was China?

Even so, can anyone be sure of the actual numbers?  Any of the foreign purchasers in the Caymans?

Stay tuned, indeed. When this train stops, it will take a long time to get a rollin'. Wasn't $/Y to go to 105 according to the GS folks??

If the Fed doesn't up rates, they will need to use a lot of NYC commercial real estate to store all the bonds that they will be buying.  The fed building will be bursting at the seams.
