Weekly ETF Fund Flows: Investors Add $6.5B

IndexUniverse.com

Investors poured more than $6.5 billion into the ETF market in the past week, with about $3.8 billion of that in U.S. stock funds alone. However, lower equities markets dragged total U.S.-listed ETF assets down to $1.304 trillion from $1.309 trillion in the prior week.

The most popular fund in the five trading days ended Thursday, Sept. 27 was the SPDR S'P 500 ETF (SPY), which added $3.69 billion, according to data compiled by IndexUniverse.

The SPDR Gold Shares (GLD), the bullion ETF and the world’s second-biggest exchange-traded fund after SPY, was No. 2 on the creations list, with inflows of $714.5 million. Gold prices rose in the third quarter to $1,800 a troy ounce from $1,550 at the start of the quarter on views central bank actions aimed at stimulating economic activity would hurt fiat currencies such as the dollar and euro.

Last week’s least popular fund was the Nasdaq 100 ETF, the PowerShares QQQ Trust (QQQ). It had redemptions of just over $1 billion.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 111 57 points, or 0.81 percent, in the Thursday-to-Thursday period.
