Three BRICS members are selling US Treasury bonds for many, many billions of dollars.
CryptoCaster Quick Check:
China’s ownership of Treasury securities fell sharply from $821.5 billion in July to $805.4 billion in August, a drop of nearly $16.4 billion, according to recent data from the U.S. Treasury Department.
In the same period, another BRICS member India reduced its holdings of US Treasury securities by $1.5 billion, from $227.4 billion to $223.2 billion.
Brazil also reduced its holdings of US Treasuries by $600 million, from $233.1 billion in July to $232.5 billion in August.
The three BRICS nations sold US government-backed securities totaling $18.5 billion.
Since it peaked in March at $869.3 billion, China, the second-largest foreign holder of US Treasuries, has regularly sold off its Treasury stockpile this year.
Adam Kobeissi, the founder and editor-in-chief of The Kobeissi Letter, suggested earlier this month that China might be selling off its Treasury holdings because of a probable economic slump.
According to Kobeissi’s analysis from last week, China appears to be “heading for a recession” since the HY (high-yield) real estate index for the nation has fallen by 85% from its peak.
News that China is preparing a stimulus package to assist its economy surfaced this week. China reduced interest rates on mortgages worth close to $6 trillion last month. China is certainly experiencing something.

From Elon Musk, Larry Fink(BlackRock) to Jamie Dimon(JP Morgan Chase) a number of billionaire owners have a powerful hold on so much of the hidden agendas’ which eludes the public concerning the paradigm shift juxtaposed by cryptocurrency and web3 emerging technologies. CryptoCaster is different. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to consider. Our journalistic efforts are produced to serve the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions – not profit motives.
And we avoid the trap that befalls much U.S. and global media – the tendency, born of a desire to please all sides, to engage in false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency dictates everything we do, we know there is a right and a wrong position in the fight against fiat global banking interest and monetary reconstruction precipitated by the emerging crypto ecology.
When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance and Ripple crisis, we’re not afraid to name who or what is uncovered. And as a crypto sentinel, we’re able to provide a fresh, outsider perspective on the global monetary disruption – one so often missing from the insular American and European media bubble.
