Investors pulled back from equity funds again this week. The $2.3 billion outflow of assets seen this week marked the fifth straight week of net selling for U.S. equities even as the S&P 500 index saw a 0.40 percent increase, according to an article published by Reuters.

The largest outflow in equities was due to the $1.12 billion bleed out of State Street Global Advisors’ SPDR S&P 500 ETF (NYSEArca: SPY); however—excluding ETFs—equity funds pulled in a total of $289 million, the article said.
