Weekly ETF Inflows Of $11B Despite ‘GLD’

April 05, 2019

Investors began April in a bullish mood, lifting the S&P 500 to a six-month high. That bullishness filtered into ETFs, which picked up $11.1 billion in fresh assets, including $6 billion for U.S. equity ETFs, during the week ending Thursday, April 4.

A slew of better-than-expected economic data and rising hopes for a trade deal between the U.S. and China encouraged investors, who also added $1.8 billion to international equity ETFs and $4.5 billion to U.S. fixed-income ETFs.

Corporate bond prices edged up, while Treasuries sagged as worries about the economy abated.

After the latest weekly haul, year-to-date net inflows for all U.S.-listed ETFs now stand at $59.3 billion.

‘GLD’ Loses Its Luster

Taking the No. 1 spot on this week’s inflows list is the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY). That fund is followed by the iShares Core S&P 500 ETF (IVV), the iShares iBoxx USD High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) and the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT).

On the outflows side, the SPDR Gold Trust (GLD), the Health Care Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLV) and the iShares Russell 2000 ETF (IWM) top the list.
