There now have been 20 weeks of outflows over the past 22 weeks, for a total outflow of $10.9 billion over that span, which follows a record-shattering 95-week inflow streak that totaled $66.7 billion.
The trailing four-week average narrows to negative $404 million per week, from negative $490 million last week. This measure remains below the recent peak of negative $858 million from the week ended June 11.
The year-to-date fund-flow reading pushes deeper into negative territory, at $3.9 billion, based on a net withdrawal of $4.3 billion from mutual funds against a net inflow of $459 million to ETFs. In the comparable year-ago period, inflows totaled $42 billion, with 11% tied to ETFs.
