Fund Flows


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.
