Interest on U.S. government bonds this year will be the second highest in history


According to government statistics remains a demand for U.S. government bonds are still strong. Since the beginning of the end of July, the volume of U.S. Treasury bonds in foreign holdings increased by 10% to 4.07 trillion. This year's purchases should reach over 641 mld.USD mld.USD 614.8 last year.

According to statistics from Bank of America Merrill Lynch this year, although China still holding U.S. bonds fell by 5.4% = 48.1 total 746.7 mld.na mld.USD, but on the other hand, Japan has added to its reserves of 55.3 billion . (+7.2%) to 821 mld.USD. For this Asian country is buying U.S. bonds, one of the ways to combat the growing record yen.
On the part of Japanese investors U.S. bonds remain attractive also because they still offer nearly twice the value compared to Japanese government bonds.

The continuing high interest in U.S. bonds helps keep their average yield of 1,31%. For comparison, in the middle of 2007 at the beginning of the financial crisis, the average yield remained at 5.21% level.
Yields of two and five-year U.S. bonds last week reached a historic low. 10-year bond yield declined in the past week compared to 2.8% from mid-September up to 2.39%.
