iShares ETF flow data reveals orderly trading post US election result

RELATED TOPICS​

Wei Li, Head of Investment Strategy, iShares EMEA, reports that trading volumes of iShares European ETFs stood at USD3.15 billion at market close, shy of the USD5 billion volume traded on June 24 2016 after the Brexit vote. 

Li writes that trading on the European primary and secondary markets was orderly as investors adjusted portfolio allocations quickly and cost-effectively using ETFs, allowing additional liquidity and price discovery.
 
Equity markets initially sold-off in the immediate reaction to the election result. However, within the European trading session risk sentiment improved and this was evidenced by inflows into equity exposures.
 
The firm writes that European investors appear to have learned from the Brexit vote experience, with speculative buying to search for relative value occurring earlier in the day – there were inflows into iShares EURO STOXX 50 [USD223 million], iShares Core S&P 500 [USD141 million], and iShares S&P 500 Financials [USD73 million].
 
 ETFs with exposure to traditional ‘safe haven’ assets such as gold – which gathered assets in the run up to the election – continued to see elevated trading volumes.
 
iShares lists the top 10 most traded iShares ETFs on the major European exchanges as: iShares Core DAX; iShares EURO STOXX 50; iShares Core S&P 500; iShares S&P 500; iShares Physical Gold ETC; iShares MSCI EM Latin America; iShares S&P 500 EUR; iShares EURO STOXX 50; iShares Core FTSE 100 and iShares MSCI World.
