Light Net Weekly Investment Flows Seen


Weekly international security flow data revealed relatively limited net flows when it comes to Japanese investors' participation in foreign assets, with a flip to light net selling of foreign bonds (for a 4th week in 5, with the one exception in that period seeing marginal net purchases), while there was a return to net buying of foreign equites, also for the 4th time in 5 weeks. Meanwhile, foreign investors flipped to selling of Japanese bonds, while registering the largest round of weekly net sales of Japanese stocks since December.
