Nearly $18B flowed into U.S. equity funds (VTI) in the past week, the biggest gusher of money since June 2008, according to EPFR. About $6,5B of that amount went into the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY). The same week saw more than $1B pulled out of investment grade (LQD) debt and Treasury funds, but $4B put to work in high yield (more on high yield's bounce). Emerging market debt funds (EMB) continue to suffer, seeing another $1.3B pulled.

  • It's a wonderful thing. It is called the great rotation (from bonds to stocks).
