Foreigners sold U.S. assets in November, reversing a buying binge sparked the prior month by the end of a 16-day U.S. government shutdown, U.S. Treasury data showed on Thursday.

Overseas investors cut their holdings of long-term U.S. securities in November by $29.3 billion, reversing a $28.7 billion increase in October. The October figure was adjusted from an originally reported $35.4 billion.
