/3 The reported division of net purchases of long-term securities between net purchases by foreign official institutions and net purchases  
of other foreign investors is subject to a "transaction bias" described in Frequently Asked Questions 7 and 10.a.4 on the TIC web site.  
/4 Net transactions in foreign securities by U.S. residents.  Foreign purchases of foreign securities = U.S. sales of foreign securities to foreigners.
Thus negative entries indicate net U.S. purchases of foreign securities, or an outflow of capital from the United States; positive entries
indicate net U.S. sales of foreign securities.

quarterly and published in the Treasury Bulletin and the TIC web site.
/7 "Selected Other Liabilities" are primarily the foreign liabilities of U.S. customers that are managed by U.S. banks or broker/dealers.
/8 TIC data cover most components of international financial flows, but do not include data on direct investment flows, which are collected 
and published by the Department of Commerce's Bureau of Economic Analysis.   In addition to the monthly data summarized here, the
TIC collects quarterly data on some banking and nonbanking assets and liabilities.  Frequently Asked Question 1 on the TIC web  
site describes the scope of TIC data collection.
