This important shift in U.S. bond market ownership ‘may surprise many people,’ says Jefferies

“An important change in the underlying ownership of the U.S. bond market has so far gotten short shrift” writes Sunny Oh for marketwatch.com. Europe isn’t the only one imperiled by the buildup of U.S. debt among European investors.In other words, Europeans bought more U.S. debt when yields on the benchmark 10-year Treasury were falling.Consequently, the current outsize ownership of U.S. debt could make the European financial sector more vulnerable to a selloff in Treasurys and U.S. corporate bonds.
