Daily ETF Flows: SPY Adds $1.92 Billion

June 11, 2012

SPY gathered $1.92 billion on Friday, June 8, as inflows and rising stocks lifted total U.S.-listed ETF assets to $1.145 trillion.

Investors added $1.92 billion to the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (NYSEArca: SPY) last Friday—another day of rising stocks, as markets hoped European policymakers would offer help to Spain’s creaky banking system.

Net inflows of $2.11 billion and rising stocks helped lift total U.S.-listed ETF assets on Friday to more than $1.145 trillion, from $1.142 trillion on Thursday, June 7, according to data compiled by IndexUniverse.

The Dow Jones industrial average rose 93.24 points, or 0.75 percent, to 12,554.20, as markets buzzed with talk policymakers would come up with a Spanish rescue plan over the weekend. A plan did materialize, but by Monday, investors were openly doubting it and fleeing Spanish debt.

Following SPY on the creations list was the Utilities Select Sector SPDR Fund (NYSEArca: XLU), which pulled in $154.8 million in fresh assets. In the No. 3 spot was the SPDR S&P MidCap 400 ETF (NYSEArca: MDY), which gathered $123.2 million.

U.S. equities, in sum, had inflows of $2.46 billion, while international equities suffered outflows of $107.8 million.

Redemptions

Friday’s least popular exchange-traded fund was the iShares Russell 2000 Index Fund (NYSEArca: IWM). It had outflows of $211.6 million.

The Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund (NYSEArca: XLF) was the No. 2 ETF on IndexUniverse’s outflows list, with redemptions totaling $149.2 million.

The Direxion Daily Small Cap Bull 3x ETF (NYSEArca: TNA) was third on the list for the second straight day, with outflows of $107.0 million.
