After the S&P 500 printed an all-time high of $4545.85 in the first week of September, the subsequent pullback yielded a 5% correction to low $4300s.
According to BofA’s Flow Show, the last week’s selling marked the 1st outflow for global equities in 2021 ($24.2 billion) and the largest since March 2020. As much as $39.6 billion went into cash (the largest in 4 months), and $10 billion into bonds.
Particularly, the US stocks experienced the largest outflow since February 2018, while Europe saw the largest outflow YTD ($1.8 billion). As far as tech funds are concerned, the last week also marked the 1st outflow in three months ($1.2 billion).
