  • Interesting to see the Energy Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLE) is the top ETF by 1-day fund flow in our Coverage Universe of more than 3,000 ETFs. Perhaps the elevated inflows into the energy ETF suggest that the risk-off sentiment to surround global markets in the last week is dissipating.
  • XLE has a “SELL” trading signal.
     
  • Not surprising to see the Utilities Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLU) as a top ETF by 1-day and 1-week fund flow in our ETF Coverage Universe. As trade uncertainty continues to infect global equity markets, investors are buying utilities stocks that historically prioritize returning yield through dividend payments to investors.
  • XLU has a “SELL” trading signal.
