    • According to Bloomberg, investors yesterday pulled another $490M out of U.S. ETFs that invest globally (presumably emerging markets hardest hit). That brings the total pulled in the past five days to nearly $1B.
    • This as U.S. equity ETFs overall see a continuing rush of money - about $25B in the first full week following the election.
    • No bull run here: The EEM is down 7% since the election, and VWO off 6%.

    • The ETF theme for 2016 has been hunkering down, with gold and low volatility funds dominating flow trends in the space - the SPDR Gold ETF (NYSEARCA:GLD) garnered $12B in new funds, while the iShares Edge MSCI Min Vol USA ETF (NYSEARCA:USMV) has pulled down $6.2B.
    • That all changed in August, as USMV saw $455M in outflows, and GLD lost $353M, according to XTF.com. "Risk-on" was most definitely on, with the iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (NYSEARCA:EEM) and the Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets ETF (NYSEARCA:VWO) combining to grab a whopping $3.4B in fresh money.

    • Some estimates put the amount of global bonds trading with negative yields as high as $10T, so who could fault an investor for turning to emerging market paper as a way to eke out some income, says Brown Brothers Harriman.
    • The team notes portfolio investment flows into EM have been positive in four of the last five months, with the early signs pointing to a continuation of the trend in August.
    • While Brown Brothers sees more gains for EM credit, it waves the yellow flag: "A purely liquidity driven model of investing will work ... until it doesn't. We caution investors against getting too optimistic about EM, as fundamentals are lagging the price action."
    • The iShares JPMorgan USD Emerging Market Bond Fund (NYSEARCA:EEM) is higher by 10.7% YTD, while yielding north of 4%.

    • Chinese stocks rose the most in two weeks today as investors shrugged off MSCI's decision not to add mainland shares to its key Emerging Markets Index (ETF: EEM).
    • This is the third year running it has given Chinese A-shares the thumbs-down, given lingering concerns about market accessibility.
    • MSCI noted that it would consider including the equities as part of its 2017 review, but did not rule out a potential off-cycle announcement.
    • Shanghai +1.6% to 2,887.

    • "International institutional investors clearly indicated that they would like to see further improvements in the accessibility of the China A shares market before its inclusion in the MSCI Emerging Markets Index (ETF: EEM)," says Remy Briand, global head of research at MSCI.
    • The decision is a surprise to most and a blow to Beijing which is eager to attract more foreign capital to the Chinese stock market. The MSCI Emerging Markets Index is tracked by money managers with about $1.5T in assets.
    • Chinese regulators had recently stepped up reform efforts in hopes of winning inclusion by MSCI, and while MSCI acknowledged those moves, it says a "period of observation" is necessary to assess effectiveness.
    • The Shanghai Composite is up 0.35% in early Wednesday action.

    • ETF creations of $49B this year through the end of May are only about half that for the same period in 2015, according to ETF.com.
    • Despite a swoon in the price of gold during May, most of the $12B that rolled into commodity funds went to gold ETFs, with GLD alone bringing in $8.8B.
    • Fixed-income ETFs had net inflows of $37.6B, led by TIPS and Treasury-focused funds. The iShares Core U.S. Aggregate Bond ETF (NYSEARCA:AGG) pulled in more than $5B.
    • Equity funds accounted for nearly all of  the largest asset losers, the SPDR S&P 500 ETF seeing $4.4B in net outflows, and the iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (NYSEARCA:EEM) $3.18B.

    • The Nasdaq has more than halved its 1% decline and the S&P 500 and Dow have moved nicely into the green as markets digest the FOMC policy statement. The consensus thinking at the moment holds that the committee gave little indication it's currently inclined to hike rates at the June meeting.
    • The 10-year Treasury yield is off a full seven basis points to 1.86%, and Fed Funds futures are pricing in about a one-in-four chance of a 25 basis point move in June.
    • There's particular strength being seen in emerging markets ETFs, with EEM now higher by 0.75% on the session

    • MSCI is resuming discussions on including Chinese mainland-listed shares in its Emerging Markets Index (ETF: EEM), though it expressed concern about barriers to investment.
    • The move would be a coup for the country, and potentially bring billions of dollars into Chinese shares from funds that passively track the index.
    • Chinese markets rallied around 50% in the first half of 2015, but slumped over 30% from mid-June after MSCI decided not to include A-shares in its benchmark.
    • Previously: MSCI paves road for A-share inclusion through ADRs (Nov. 02 2015)
    • Previously: MSCI: China A-shares still on track to join benchmark (Sep. 02 2015)

    • Led by chief economist Willem Buiter, Citi Research sees global growth of 2.5% this year - the same as 2015, but down 20 basis points from a forecast one month ago and 90 bps from a few months back. Factoring in "mismeasurement" in Chinese GDP, "genuine" global growth will barely clock in above 2%.
    • The risks to this forecast, however, are likely to the downside, says Buiter, meaning a growing chance of sub-2% growth, which could be termed a recession, or at least a growth recession.
    • How to play? The team no longer expects a significant rate hike cycle from the Fed, meaning the strong dollar (UUP, UDN) trade is done for.
    • Dollar weakness, however, makes emerging markets (EEM, VWO) look more attractive, and Citi raises EM to Overweight.
    • A weaker dollar also means yen (NYSEARCA:FXY) strength, so Citi cuts Japan (EWJ, DXJ) to Neutral.

    • Investors pulled a record $72.6B, or 8% of AUM, from emerging market funds last year, according to EPFR, well more than the $39B pulled amid the global financial crisis in 2008.
    • 2015 was the third consecutive year of outflows, with $23B exiting in 2014 and $16B in 2013.
    • Since July, emerging market funds have seen outflows in 22 of 25 weeks.
    • Capitulation? Not yet, says Morgan Stanley's Jonathan Garner. In the current streak of nine straight weeks of outflows, $12.5B, or 1.7% of AUM has exited. It's typically taken outflows of more than 4% of AUM over a 10-week stretch to create a strong tactical buy signal for EM.

    • There have been emerging market equity fund outflows for 16 of the past 19 weeks, and debt fund outflows in 23 of the past 26, according to the latest fund flow data from BAML. Year-to-date fund outflows of $86B is tops since 2008.
    • For perspective, European equity funds have seen inflows for 25 of the past 27 weeks.
    • While China's devaluation complicates things, "humiliated emerging markets are ripe for a bounce as Fed expectations peak," says the team.
