  • Treasury holdings by China remained largely unchanged, while Japan’s holdings decreased by $28.9 billion to $1.15 trillion
  • The US Dollar was mostly unchanged after the report crossed the wires

The US Treasury released Treasury International Capital data this afternoon. TIC flows represent the net purchase and sales of stocks, bonds, and monies between the US and foreign countries. The report showed a Net Long-Term TIC inflow of $49.5 billion for September. The report compares to August’s numbers where outflows of $41.2 billion were recorded.

Although the US Dollar had a muted reaction – likely overshadowed by this morning’s meeting between Powell and Trumpthe TIC report could cap downward short-term pressure on the Greenback as inflows of Treasury International Capital is generally bullish.
