“The U.S. Department of the Treasury released Treasury International Capital (TIC) data for June 2013. The next release, which will report on data for July 2013, is scheduled for September 17, 2013. The sum total in June of all net foreign acquisitions of long-term securities, short-term U.S. securities, and banking flows was a monthly net TIC outflow of $19.0 billion.  Of this, net foreign private outflows were $4.6 billion, and net foreign official outflows were $14.3 billion. Foreign residents reduced their holdings of long-term U.S. securities in June; net sales were $77.8 billion.  Net sales by private foreign investors were $81.6 billion, and net purchases by foreign official institutions were $3.8 billion. At the same time, U.S. residents decreased their holdings of long-term foreign securities, with net sales of $11.0 billion. Taking into account transactions in both foreign and U.S. securities, the net foreign purchases of long-term securities were negative $66.9 billion.  After including adjustments, such as estimates of unrecorded principal payments to foreigners on U.S. asset-backed securities, the overall net foreign acquisition of long-term securities is estimated to have been negative $85.4 billion in June. Foreign residents increased their holdings of U.S. Treasury bills by $8.8 billion.  Foreign resident holdings of all dollar-denominated short-term U.S. securities and other custody liabilities decreased by $4.4 billion. Banks’ own net dollar-denominated liabilities to foreign residents increased by $70.8 billion.”
