Fund Flows: Equity, Bond & Money Market Yearly Totals

Equity, Bond & Money Market Fund Flows - Yearly Totals & 2010 YTD

Weekly Data for 12/1/2010 
  • Equity Fund outflows $1.2 Bil
  • Taxable Bond Fund outflows $0.525 Bil
    xETFs:
  • Equity Fund outflows $1.1 Bil
  • Taxable Bond Fund outflows $0.109 Bil
  • See bottom for a table of current US Treasury rates. 
This table shows a summation of the weekly fund flow data.  Money Market funds yield next to nothing so people have taken money out to buy bonds as well as live on during the recession and long recovery period with US unemployment still near 10%. 

I think many will be surprised at how quickly equities go up in value once interest rates start to climb and people dump bond funds that start to lose money.  The money will flow into what is hot, which will be equities and that will probably drive the next bubble.  My explore portfolio gained 33.5% last year with a tiny $6.0B net inflow into equities.  This year the portfolio is up another 13.6% with another tiny net inflow of $7.3B so far.   The returns could spin your head if we see significant fund flows back into equities like we saw between 2003 and 2007.
