Equity markets rose last week on strong US corporate earnings, particularly across technology, communication and consumer sectors.
BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF (HACK) was the top performing fund last week, with ETFS Morningstar Global Technology ETF (TECH) among the top performers, which had posted a 26.9 per cent total return since the start of 2019 and is 10 per cent above its previous highs in September 2018.
Healthcare and biotechnology funds had also performed well, while China ETFs declined after economic stimulus expectations declined.
Precious metals rose last week with ETFS Physical Palladium ETF (EPTMPD) up 4.2 per cent, but the broader commodity universe fell.
Total flows into domestic ETFs were $108 million for the week, while outflows totalled $93 million. The biggest inflows were into Australian fixed-income funds.
SPDR S&P/ASX 200 Fund (STW) and SPDR S&P/ASX Australian Bond Fund (BOND) were the most traded out funds.
