Investors Are Pouring Billions Into Mid Cap Equities Funds

Today’s money flows update from analyst Paul Weisbruch includes continued inflows into equity and technology funds, and a flight away from oil & gas and Treasuries.

Late last week, we saw not only inflows into the Tech-heavy QQQ (Nasdaq 100) but also to Small-Caps (IWM), as we noted, and MidCaps MDY (SPDR S&P Midcap 400) and IJH (iShares Core S&P Mid-Cap). MDY and IJH reeled in about $560 million and $480 million accordingly, which are very substantial flows for both of these ETFs.


MDY and IJH were both trading lower this morning, off around 0.7%, amid a wider equities pullback, but it’ll be interesting to see if these major inflows continue over the next week or so.

Elsewhere, we saw some evident profit taking in XOP (SPDR Oil & Gas Exploration & Production), as the ETF has stalled above $40 after a rally throughout most of November. About $400 million has left XOP due to redemption pressure recently, which is a major exodus from the approximately $2 billion exchange traded fund.

In other action, selling pressure in Bonds amid the spike in interest rates prior to the next FOMC rate decision meeting in December has prompted some to sell TLT (iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond) prior to the end of the month and we have seen over $530 million leave the fund lately.
