Obviously, holding on to too huge a bundle of US Treasuries ( as loans to the USA to stage wars abroad ) is becoming a major national risk since the Trump Admin of the USA is NOT treating China as its strategic trading partner; but more so as its "enemy" as stated by Trump's currently selected top team folks : bad blood fellows !!

It is not a grand leveraging tool by holding on to such trillions of US Treasury papers in any dispute with it. The USA Trump's Admin is becoming very cunning and funny with its current team as each day passes by !

I would dump it to ! worth 4 cents to a $

Wellll, bond yield moves in inverse direction to interest rate and the way USofA is and will be borrowing money (by issuing bonds and t-notes ), the bond yield will naturally drop. Japan is clever to slowly dump the USAnian bonds.

What is PBoC doing? We don't know bc PBoC has a direct line to Treasury for trading bonds, it's not on the open market bc of the volume.

There's a trust-relationship established over the years. Maybe Trump should destroy this relationship as well to "punish" China and shoot himself in the foot... again, ad nauseum. He is rather good at that, isn't he?
