    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

S&P ETF Outflows Soar To Biggest Since 2008

Tyler Durden's picture


Presented with little comment aside to ask... is it different this time?



and as a reminder, HY outflows are surging... perhaps, just perhaps the taper does matter? Perhaps the 'repo' issue we have been exposing matters?

The language, "weaken" / strengthen", etc. refers to the exchange rate with other currencies. If US entities sell SPDR and buy US Bonds and Notes, it has no effect on the exchange rate.

don't let that dry powder sit on the sidelines too long.  Some, yes...but if you haven't started yet, then if I was you, I'd get to stackin' phyzz silver and gold now.

When everyone else's sideline "money" starts to stampeding for phyzz you aren't going to want to be caught up in that mess.  You'll want to already have your stacks nice and high. 

Maybe even have some "extra" phyzz that you can trade or sell off for other valuable assets that people might want to trade for your "playing around" phyzz, if ya know what I mean?

The article you're commenting on refers to sales of SPDR; an ETF representing a portion of the NYSE; it has nothing to do with bonds.

Considering this is ETF outflows we're talking about, its probably not hedge funds that are selling. Hedge funds tend to pick stocks, rather than invest in an index, so they have a reason to charge huge fees. So you unfortunately can't blame "hedge fund managers" for this one. In fact, it might even be mom and pop investors doing the selling. 

And yes, as several others pointed out, this is stocks, not bonds.

I don't understand how this is measured. If someone is selling the ETF, doesn't that also mean someone else is buying the ETF? How do you determine which one is inflow and which one is outflow?

NO. ETF's don't work like that. The shares are redeemed for cash. the chart shows that persons, entities, have exited the ETF; their accounts are credited with cash. What you're describing is how the Commodities Futures Exchange operates; by creating a contract between a buyer and seller; this is completely different.
