Global Funds Cut China Bond Holdings for Eighth Straight Month

  • Bond outflows intensify amid hawkish Fed bets, weak yuan
  • China government bonds end two months of capital inflows

Global investors sold China’s onshore bonds for the eighth straight month, the longest streak on record, as the notes’ appeal was dampened by a surge in Treasury yields and a weaker yuan.

Foreign investor holdings of Chinese bonds in the interbank market fell by about 70.7 billion yuan ($9.7 billion) in September following net sales of 35.4 billion yuan in the previous month, according to data from China Central & Depository Clearing Co. and Shanghai Clearing House.
