  • The flows into SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) continues with nearly $500 million of inflows yesterday.  Is there a rotation into US large-cap?  $154 million flowed into the Vanguard S&P 500 (VOO) yesterday.  $7 billion has flowed into iShares Core S&P 500 (IVV) over the past month.  Feels like we are finally seeing some real strength into US large-caps. 
  • $220 million flowed into Invesco DWA Momentum ETF (PDP) yesterday, roughly 13% of total assets under management.  PDP has a “POOR” Smart Beta Rating with a “BUY” trading signal according to our Quantamize models. 
  • Continuing our theme of a rotation into tech, nearly $500 million has flowed into the SPDR Technology Select Sector ETF (XLK) over the past week.  That translates to slightly more than 2.5% of total assets under management.  XLK has a Smart Beta Rating of “POOR” with a “BUY” trading signal according to our Quantamize models
