  3. (8-22-2014). Beginning September 16, 2014, the monthly Treasury International Capital (TIC) data release will occur at 4:00 PM Eastern time, aligning the monthly release with other TIC data releases. The scheduled release dates are unchanged.

  5. (8-15-2013) Starting with the 8-15-2013 release, the "Major Foreign Holders of Treasury Securities" (MFH table) uses data from TIC Form SLT, "Aggregate Holdings of Long-Term Securities by U.S. and Foreign Residents," for all months, including preliminary SLT data for the most recent month. Previous MFH tables have used transactions data from the TIC S Form added to the prior month’s SLT data to estimate holdings for the most recent month. This release completes the transition, which began with the release of February 29, 2012, to using monthly SLT data for Treasury bonds and notes instead of using estimates based on the annual surveys of "Foreign Portfolio Holdings of U.S. Securities" plus monthly transactions data.

  6. (8-12-2013) Minor revision of TIC securities webpages. The special transactions data series have been moved from the old securities(b) webpage to the securities (A) webpage; the old securities(d) webpage has been included in the new "securities(B)" webpage covering monthly holdings data. No data series have been discontinued, and the URL addresses of all data series remain the same.
