Who's Abandoning The Big, Bad Dollar·

So who is cashing out on the dollar· Looks like China and Japan. According to the article Asian investors dumped $52bn worth of US Treasury bonds alone, led by Japan ($23bn), China ($14.2bn) and Taiwan ($5bn). It is the first time since 1998 that foreigners have, on balance, sold Treasuries.

Wow. That is a ton of money. I knew it was just a matter of time before China started bailing out but I figured Japan would wait a little bit longer since the Yen isn't exactly burning up the charts. Shows what I know (very little).
