US Stock ETF: Largest One-Day Inflows since January
In recent weeks, the United States market witnessed an increased in trading activities for ETFs. On 13 September 2016, while investors sought to arbitrage price differences between ETFs and equities, the US stock market exchange traded fund experienced its largest cash inflow since January 2016. S&P 500 ETF (SPY) observed inflows of $3.5bn on the same day, recognizing it as the largest one-day inflow of cash since January 21, 2016.
The stock markets went down when S&P 500 plunged by 2.5 percentage points on September 9, 2016, resulting in ETF being priced relatively cheaper. This gave traders the opportunity to increase their purchases of existing SPY shares from the market and shorting the underlying stock, thus, profiting from the price differences.

The US retail sales saw its first decline in 5 months of 0.3% in August 2016. However, ETF gains prevailed. In contrast with the US Equities market, annual returns for ETFs has been constantly positive.
