HONG KONG/TOKYO -- Overseas money continues to flow out of Chinese stocks and bonds as a rapidly cooling economy and interest rate shifts drive investment to other destinations.

Foreign investors' holdings of Chinese bonds fell for a seventh straight month in August, dropping by a net total of 594 billion yuan ($83 billion) to 3.48 trillion yuan, according to data from sources including China Central Depository & Clearing. September saw another net outflow from mainland Chinese shares traded through Hong Kong.
