Market Moves: Week Ending 17 May 2024

  • Crypto ETFs (CRYP, EBTC, EETH) were the top performers last week as the industry prepared for the SEC’s impending decision of whether spot Ethereum ETFs would be allowed to trade in the US. A Bloomberg Intelligence report estimated there was a 75% chance that spot Ethereum ETFs would be approved, boosting market sentiment.1 The SEC’s decision is due on May 23rd.2
  • Short equity funds (BBOZ, BBUS, SNAS) were the poorest performers as cooling inflation and stalled retail sales growth revived market expectations for multiple rate-cuts before the end of 2024. US CPI for April came in at 0.3%, below analyst expectations, and marking the first time it has cooled in six months.3
  • There were $421.8 million in reported inflows for the week and $169.1 million in outflows, marking a week of net inflow for the Australian ETF industry.
