China's U.S. Treasury Holdings Continue to Tumble Amid Trade War

(Bloomberg) — China’s holdings of U.S. Treasuries fell to the lowest level in a year and a half amid a bruising trade war with the Trump administration.

China’s pile of notes, bills and bonds dropped to $1.12 trillion in November, from $1.14 trillion in October, according to data from the Treasury Department released Thursday.

Japan is next, with $1.04 trillion, up from $1.02 trillion in October, which was its smallest amount since 2011.
