ABSTRACT
The article reports that on 9 September, 2004 the US government's Treasury Bonds failed to attract investors. It informs that in the past a sell-off of Treasury Bonds has prompted great excitement in the markets, particularly from the Gulf states and the wider Middle East. But this time things did not turn out as planned. It was business as usual, the Treasury offer came up for bid, when heads of Treasury Securities at all major banks optimistically turned their attention as the first offers streamed across. Past auctions had been unable to cope with the huge demands from overseas, foreign banks and investors, particularly from Saudi Arabia(Saudi Arabia) and the wider Middle East, always first in line for the secure investments. INSETS: More investments expected in Dubailand;Inter-Arab investments hit $3.7bn.
