Do they know something we don't know........

......................Apparently our foreign friends from China , Russia, etc. are selling U. S. Treasuries.  Maybe they just need the cash.  Back story here.  It is interesting to read who is buying.  It is also interesting to note that the author doesn't think this will cause interest rates to go up.  Hmmm.   One would assume that since formerly voracious buyers of our debt are now selling the notes they own, they probably will not be buying Treasuries soon.  Are not new notes are also coming on the market as we finance our debt?  Let's see..............more Treasuries available and fewer buyers.  I don't claim to know much, but won't yields have to increase to entice more buyers?  Just wondering.
