In the week ended Wednesday, stock funds had net cash inflows of $1.7 billion, according to AMG Data Services. Money-market funds pulled in $7 billion. Taxable bond funds had net outflows of $411 million, but municipal-bond funds gained $42 million. Results include exchange-traded funds.


Note: We’ve looked at Fund Flow several times over the past few years: Earlier this year on January 26 (A Promising Start, But . . .) and in the   beginning of 2004: February 23 (Structural Decay) and February 26 (Reluctant Buyers on Strike at Nasdaq).

Note that at bubble peaks, fund flow gets excessive.

One Response to “Fund Flows”

  1. Tom says:

    Barron’s has an article today (investor’s soapbox) in which the writer says the retail investor is returning to the market, and uses this observation as basis for predicting a 10% rise in ’06. Is it true that fund flows are increasing (and where can I check that)? And does fund flow drive the market up? Thanks.
