ETF Channel Staff - Monday, May 9, 10:59 AM
This is the ETF Flows Report for 05/09/2016, reflecting new data for ETF units created or destroyed following the prior closing bell. For the total universe of ETFs covered by ETF Channel, there were combined total outflows of $5.1 billion day over day. Of note in today's report, the Metals ETFs category saw inflows of $184.7 million. Among the ETFs in that category, SPDR Gold Shares (GLD) had inflows of $197.0 million, iShares Gold Trust (IAU) had inflows of $43.5 million, and SPDR S&P Metals and Mining ETF (XME) had outflows of $55.9 million.
Although ETFs trade just like stocks, instead of ''shares'' investors are actually buying and selling ''units'' — which are routinely created or destroyed to accommodate investor demand. We monitor these changes, to keep a lookout for ETFs experiencing notable inflows (many new units created) or outflows (many old units destroyed).
