China's holdings of U.S. debt have fallen below $1T

Must Read

For the first time since May 2010, China's holdings of U.S. debt have fallen below $1T. 



China began reducing its Treasury position in early 2021, and the trend has continued as rising U.S. interest rates have made U.S. Treasurys less appealing to investors. China now holds $980.8B of U.S. Treasurys, down almost $23B from April and nearly $100B from last May.

Beijing's decision to reduce its Treasury holdings has also been attributed to a desire to diversify its foreign debt portfolio.

Japan, which is also reducing its Treasury positions, owns $1.212T in U.S. Treasurys. Japan is now the country with the largest U.S. debt position.
This is the lowest level of U.S. debt holdings for Japan since January 2020.

U.S. Treasurys saw net foreign inflows of $99.84B in May after April saw outflows of $1.153B
