China increased their holdings of US debt by $1.2 billion. Corporate bonds saw a net inflow of $12.7 billion in May, a significant increase from the previous month which saw $5.5 billion of sales.

US equity outflows continued for the fourth month in a row as selling increased by $8.3 billion. During the May reporting period for this report, the S&P 500 increased by 0.37 percent, the Dow Jones decreased by 0.58 percent and the US Dollar appreciated by 2.44 percent.
