Investors pull $33 Billion out of Market

Trim Tabs estimates that investors pulled $33 billion out of the market in February. The Investment Company Institute estimates that investors sold $7.1 billion in stocks during the four week period ending February 16. Amazingly, ICI estimated that investors bought $9 billion more than they bought in January. Nothing like buy high, sell low.

Vanguard reported on Monday that call volume was up considerably and their was movement out of stocks and into money funds. Ditto T. Rowe Price.

It appears that both corporate and institutions are selling.

Selling climax coming soon, most likely.
