Economica/Chris Hamilton/2-21-2016

“What I’m even more confused about is who, exactly, is buying all the Treasury debt while simultaneously buying all the equity’s (and real estate, and and and)?. . . I’m astounded that somehow the domestic public is able to push equity prices up by over $16 trillion from there ’09 lows while simultaneously buying record quantities of Treasury debt.  The TIC data (Treasury International Capital system) combined with Fed data and further Treasury data show the public is presently purchasing nearly $70 billion a month (average) of still near record low yielding debt?!?  The only previous period that the domestic public bought even 2/3rds the present amount, asset valuations were in free fall from 2008 to 2010 as money rotated from risk to perceived safety.”

MK note:  Confused?  So are we. . . . .

Why biggest U.S. creditors are selling Treasuries/Bloomberg/2-22-2017

“It’s the biggest pile of debt in the world — the $13.9 trillion U.S. Treasuries market. It’s been built with the help of foreign central banks and investors, who have clamored to buy U.S. government debt through good times and bad. But what happens if they lose their taste for Treasuries? With creditors from Tokyo to Beijing to London having second thoughts, we may be about to find out.”

MK note:  Based on the data, they have already lost their taste for U.S. government debt.  The real question reverts back to the previous article:  Why would anyone buy U.S. government paper in this rising interest rate environment?
