Around $12.8 billion flowed into U.S.-listed ETFs last week as markets jumped, pushing the year-to-date total to $324.7 billion.

ETFs registered net inflows despite outflows of $1.2 billion from U.S. equity funds. Most other categories, including U.S. fixed income ETFs, international equity ETFs, currency ETFs, and commodities ETFs pulled in new cash. 

The most popular individual ETFs included the Vanguard 500 Index Fund (VOO) and the iShares S&P 500 Growth ETF (IVW), with weekly inflows of $11.9 billion and $3.1 billion, respectively.

The iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) was the most in-demand fixed income ETF, with inflows of over a billion, while two bitcoin ETFs—the iShares Bitcoin Trust (IBIT) and the Fidelity Wise Origin Bitcoin Fund (FBTC)— were also in the top 10.

On the other side of the ledger were the iShares Core S&P 500 ETF (IVV) and the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY), which shed $12 billion and $6.9 billion in assets, respectively.

A few tech-focused funds, like the Invesco QQQ Trust (QQQ), the ProShares UltraPro QQQ (TQQQ) and the Direxion Daily Semiconductor Bull 3X Shares (SOXL) also had hefty outflows last week.

Record Highs

The S&P 500 hit fresh all-time highs on Wednesday and held near records through the end of the week despite the release of a hotter-than-expected jobs report.

At the same time, bond prices fell, with the benchmark 10-year Treasury yield spiking to nearly 4.5% as traders reasoned that the Fed was less likely to cut rates this year with the jobs market so strong.  

Looking ahead, stocks, bonds and other assets will likely to take their cues from this week’s consumer price index report and Fed rate decision, both due on Wednesday.

Core inflation is expected to have grown by 0.3% month-over-month in May, the same rate as the previous month. Meanwhile, the Fed is widely anticipated to keep rates on hold.
