Individual investors seem to have a preference for global equity over domestic equity exchange traded funds (ETFs). TrimTabs for Forbes reports U.S. equity mutual funds and ETFs received $14.5 billion this year, compared to $50.5 billion flowing into global funds and ETFs. In the past week there was a large outflow from U.S. based funds. This could be due to raising cash to pay taxes and with global markets outperforming domestic, investors are dumping the lower performers.
