Weekly Market Monitor – Week Ending 16 June 2023

  • Geared equity funds (LNAS, GEAR, GGUS) dominated the top performers last week as the Fed paused rate hikes for the month. CPI in the US declined to 4% in May, while economic activity continued to expand, and unemployment rate remained low. Investors have reason to believe that a ‘soft landing’ is within reach, and the Fed may be less aggressive going forward.
  • Crypto ETFs (EBTC, EETH) were among the poorest performers, as fear and doubt continue to spread amongst investors due to constant SEC intervention and an exodus of crypto firms from the US.
  • There were $257.5 million in reported industry inflows for the week, of which bond and income ETFs (AAA, IAF, QPON, SUBD, USTB) took home more than 50%.
  • There were $137.6 million in reported outflows last week, marking a return to net inflows for the Australian ETF industry.
  • Broad-base index tracking funds (A200, IOZ, IVV, NDQ, VAS, VGS) dominated the top trading volumes as usual.
