We're not cashing them in, are we?


Some Foreign Investors have recently started selling their treasury holdings - not a massive dump or anything, but they have begun to reduce their positions because of the continued weakening of the dollar. Mostly it is US investors that are the ones buying them up right now as many are looking for safer holdings than the stock market.
