ETF fund flows
The PowerShares S&P 500 Low Volatility ETF (SPLV) witnessed a robust $310 million net fund outflow in the last month. The significant increase in volatility in SPLV can be due to huge sell-off that resulted from overcrowded positions in the low-volatility funds.
The anticipated views of the Federal Reserve members are expected to make way for utilities (IDU) (VPU) and for low-volatility funds. Until now, one can expect volatility to continue as long as the Fed fuels the uncertainty in the markets.
