Analysts continue to play down any concerns that China might dump its U.S. bondholdings, a move that could potentially expose the U.S. government to an interest-rate shock and dealing a blow to the U.S. economy. [...]

As overseas investors came back into the market in July, U.S. investors continued to pull money out. A total $14.8 billion was yanked from U.S.-listed bond mutual funds and exchange-traded funds in July following a record outflow of $69.1 billion in June, according to TrimTabs Investment Research. In August, there was $42.9 billion net redemption again for the sector.
