Japan Shed Second Largest Ever Net Amount Of Foreign Equities Last Week

JAPAN

The latest round of weekly international security flow data from the Japanese MoF revealed that Japanese investors were net sellers of both foreign equites and bonds for a second straight week. This came as U.S. yields nudged higher during the week, while U.S. equities softened.

  • Note that the level of net weekly sales of foreign equities has only been surpassed on one occasion on record, the weekly record of net sales observed back in ’20.
  • Meanwhile, international investors were net buyers of both Japanese equities and bonds, although net flows were somewhat limited in size terms.
