24th Consecutive Outflow From Domestic Stock Mutual Funds Is In The Books

At this point what is there to say that has not been said already 23 times in a row? ICI reports the latest fund flow data: flows into everything are up... except domestic stocks. The only silver lining: the outflow is declining, and we may just see an inflow next week. Although at $81billion in redemptions YTD, even an uptick eventually would be too little to late. The only marginal buyers continue to be the primary dealers (using POMO cash), desperate pension funds (getting led to the slaughter), and algos which churn stocks a few million times per day, end on a loss, but then collect liquidity rebates from the exchanges and are happy. Aside from these three, there is nobody else.
