Japan Not China

"Japan dethroned China as the top foreign holder of U.S. Treasurys for the first time since the financial crisis, following a wave of purchases by buyers shifting money to the U.S. as Japanís economic policies push down interest rates there."

For years some have brandished the specter of scary China being our biggest creditor. Now Japan is. Will this change the way US citizens think of and speak about our debt or will the fact that China is still a major player going to continue to allow it to be our bogeyman?

Great Smiley Things may change. China is going to shut itself down. Japan is for real and found out ww2 helped them and the US.
Bogeyman? For a little while. Its a very stubborn country like Japan once was. It doesn't work
  

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek

There is a global sell off in treasury securities. Russia and China are leading the pack. Japan would be as well but their citizens are chasing yield and in a NIRP world, and US paper looks good in comparison.

There is a mystery buyer in Belgium who is soaking up the excess paper, and helping prices stay bid. Some speculate it is the Fed itself.
