* Data are posted after the press release; data are posted in random groups during the next 15 minutes, usually.

 

*** The 2015 release dates for the preliminary and final reports on ​U.S. Portfolio Holdings of Foreign Securities at end-Dec 2014 were originally August 31 and October 30, respectively. The delays to October 30 and January 29, 2016, respectively, are necessary due to the delay in the implementation of an IT system and to resolve associated technical problems.

REVISIONS and RELEASE DATES:

  1. Monthly Press Release of monthly data on Securities & Banking.
    Monthly data on (a) transactions in, and holdings of, long-term securities, and (b) on banking claims and liabilities are updated on the 11th business day of each month. For the transactions and banking data there is a 1.5 month lag between the release date and the as-of date. For the securities holdings data there is a 1.5 month lag for Treasury securities and a 2.5 month lag for all other securities; the first releases were May, July, September and December of 2012 before monthly releases began in March 2013. Beginning September 16, 2014, the monthly Treasury International Capital (TIC) data is released at 4:00 PM Eastern time. Previously, the release time was normally at 09:00 a.m. in Washington D.C. [These series are available on the TIC Homepage from lines 1, 2.a, 2.b, and 3.]

    Notes on Revisions of monthly and quarterly data:
    (c) The January, April, July, and October releases reflect revised data for the past year. For significant revisions, the release will reflect revised data beyond the past year. All other releases reflect revised data for the prior 3 months.
    (d) The monthly table showing Major Foreign Holders of U.S. Treasury Securities is available on the TIC Homepage from line 2.b. Beginning December 2011, the data are based on the monthly Form SLT data, and revised as described in (c) above. Before September 2011, revised data back to the previous June was usually released in March to include preliminary data from the annual survey of foreign holdings of U.S. securities at end-June of the previous year. The May release usually included the final results from that survey.

  2. Annual Securities Holdings Data.
    Two complementary surveys measure cross-border portfolio holdings of securities. The time of release is normally at 04:00 p.m. in Washington D.C. [These series are available on the TIC Homepage from line 2.c.]
    (a) Foreign Portfolio Holdings of U.S. Securities. Annual data are available beginning as of June 30, 2002. Preliminary data for the survey are released on the last business day of February; the final report is released on the last business day of April. Previously, detailed benchmark surveys were conducted approximately every five years, for end-year 1974, 1978, 1984, 1989, and 1994 and for end-March 2000.
    (b) U.S. Portfolio Holdings of Foreign Securities. Annual data are available beginning as of December 31, 2003. Preliminary data from the survey are released on the last business day of August; the final report is released on the last business day of October. Previously, detailed benchmark surveys were conducted as of March 31, 1994, year-end 1997, and year-end 2001.

  3. Quarterly Derivatives data on holdings and cash settlements. The releases are made at the same time as the monthly press releases (see 1 above) in March, June, September, and December. Before September 2012, the releases were made at the same time as the monthly press releases in January, April, July, and October. [These series are available on the TIC Homepage from line 4.]

  4. Quarterly Nonbanking Claims and Liabilities.  The releases are made at the same time as the monthly press releases (see 1 above) in March, June, September, and December. [These series are available on the TIC Homepage from line 5.]

  5. Quarterly U.S. Gross External Debt. The time of release is normally at 4:00 p.m. in Washington D.C. The release dates are the last business day of each quarter (March, June, September, and December). [These series are available on the TIC Homepage from line 6.]

    Notes on Revisions: Revised data for the previous five quarters are normally released on the last business day of June. Revisions include the results of the Survey of Foreign Holdings of U.S. Securities at end-June of the previous year.
