5 Hot ETFs of Last Week Amid Market Rout

Asia's Tech News Daily

The broad market rout last week made equity ETFs attractive as investors jumped to buy on the dip. This is especially true as ETFs overall gathered about $19.8 billion capital last week (ending Nov 26-Dec 2), bringing inflows of $799.3 billion year to date. U.S. equity ETFs led the way higher last week with $14 billion inflows, closely followed by $2.5 billion in international equity ETFs and $1.9 billion in U.S. fixed-income ETFs, per etf.com.

SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust SPY, Invesco QQQ Trust QQQ, iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF TLT, iShares Core S&P 500 ETF IVV and Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF VTI dominated the top creation list last week.

Stock Market Synopsys

Wall Street saw a wild swing last week on growth concerns and Fed’s speedy taper talks. The Nasdaq Composite Index underperformed, shedding 2.6% while the S&P 500 and Dow Jones industrial Average lost 1.2% and 0.9%, respectively.

The spread of the new COVID-19 variant, Omicron, has sparked fears of restriction measures and another wave of lockdown. This will likely dampen economic growth, which is recovering from the pandemic lows. Meanwhile, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell signaled that the central bank is planning to accelerate the withdrawal of its bond-buying program at its December meeting to combat a surge in inflation (read: Low-Beta ETFs to Fend Off Market Volatility).

A disappointing November jobs report added to the worries. The U.S. added just 210,000 jobs last month compared to 573,000 jobs predicted by economists polled by Dow Jones. This represents the smallest number of jobs added to the U.S. economy since December 2020, when the economy actually shed jobs amid a surge in COVID cases.

We have detailed the ETFs below:
