  4. The flows into equity funds peaked in 2007 which was one indicator for me to take profits. In fact, the total fund flows more than doubled their 2007 level of $52.5B to $113.B.

    What we see in late 2010 is money pouring out of money funds as many draw down savings in this recession but we also see money pouring into bond funds, $146.5B so far just this year!

    We see very little money flowing into equities despite good yield, valuation and great gains since March 2009. My "explore portfolio" is up nearly 10% YTD but few are buying equities. When the tide changes when interest rates go up, some of the exodus from bond funds will make its way to equities and we could be surprised by the gains.

    Here are some interesting calculations I did using the weekly data:

    My Calculations (Fund Flows in $B):
    Total Equity Fund Flows for 2010 => 8.5
    Total Taxable Bond Fund Flows for 2010 => 146.5
    Total Money Market Fund Flows for 2010 => (402.0)
    Total Equity Fund Flows for 2008 to 2010 => 18.0
    Total Taxable Bond Fund Flows for 2008 to 2010 => 315.1
    Total Money Market Fund Flows for 2008 to 2010 => (74.3)

    The ratio of money flowing into bond funds vs equity funds is stunning.

    Bond:Equity Ratio for 2008 to 2010 17.6 to 1!!!

    I went against the "flow" and took all money out of bond funds not indexed to inflation for my own portfolio and my newsletter core portfolio. We still have some money in bond funds in "The Retirement Advisor" newsletter portfolios for income (medium and short duration) but we plan to make changes before the Fed finishes with QE2.
