In June Foreigners Bought Fewest US Securities Since December 2011; Biggest Corporate Bond Outflow Since January 2010

Tyler Durden's picture

The June TIC data is out, in which we find that June was not a good month for non-US Treasury purchases by foreigners. While foreign private and public sources of buying did splurge on US Treasurys in June, purchasing a total of $32.4 billion of US paper, every other category experienced a sell off, with Agencies down $604MM, Corp Equities down $4.3 billion and Corporate bonds down a whopping $22 billion: this is the second biggest corporate bond outflow on record, topped only by the $25 billion in January 2010. Overall, June saw only $5.5 billion of net inflows into US securities, the lowest of 2012, and higher only than the big December 2011 outflow of ($17.6) billion. Still despite the big repositioning out of corporates and into Treasurys in the month in which the wheels seemed set to fall off the cart, there was little impact on the corporate market. The historical purchases and sales of US securities by foreigners can be found below.

The Fed, is the only buyer.  I wonder what this private banking cartel will want in exchange for debt they know can never be paid off.  Hhmm, what have they extracted from humanity in the past?  Oh crap...

Slowly but surely, they'll take EVERYTHING. This is not just about a few tons of gold, or regional military dominance, or mind control. The War of the Ring is being fought and Sauron is playing for the absolute dominance. Anything short of that doesn't cut it.

Syracuse New York Headed For Bankruptcy, 100% Certain...

Without a doubt Syracuse, New York is headed for bankruptcy. Not only is there an "official denial" but the mayor of Syracuse is seeking legal guidance on municipal bankruptcy. 

Once again, public union wages and benefits, especially police and firefighters' pensions are smack in the midst of it.

Please consider this news headline which I openly mock: Expert says bankruptcy for Syracuse is unlikely, but mayor should explore option

I live near there.. it's got a good zoo but you can tell, the city is shot and especially affordable.  Got an old 1800's Erie Canal boom time built bank that was built with a disgusting Bank of America sign on it.

You are correct....that BoA sign on that beautiful building is fugly/tasteless..

Who knows CD? You might be right, yes, but they might have an ace or two up their sleeves yet. We're like Hobbits, too little to know or matter, and this time there are no Elfs, Aragorn or even Gandolf to help us. And whoever heard of a Hobbit revolution.

China's export trade has weakened so it only makes sense that treasury purchases are down-


China's trade growth has fallen steadily this year as global demand for its exports cooled and efforts to boost domestic consumption have failed to gain traction as fast as the government hoped.

In July, its global trade surplus narrowed by 20.3 per cent from July 2011 to $US25.1 billion ($A23.83 billion) but was this year's second biggest after June's $US31.7 billion

In a rigged/captured market, it becomes increasingly difficult to buy anything.  Nothing is trusted.

Why should a foreign investor want to buy US stocks? If he is unlucky and dies, the heir gonna pay US inheritance tax on it...

Not only was the TIC under 10 billion (when we need at least 12 times that much to finance the twin trade/fiscal gaps) but CNBS hit a new high for misleading headlines:

Foreign Investors Are Pouring Money Into This Country


The headline implies that money is FLOODING into America, until you click on the link and find the story is actually about investment in Turkey.  CNBS has posted some bald faced lies over the years, and some really near comical misleading pieces, but this is so Orwellian it is sinister.
