By
A A A

Investors pulled $578.2 million out of the SPRD Gold Trust (NYSEArca:GLD) on Thursday while adding $47.0 million to the iShares Gold Trust (NYSEArca:IAU) as the battle for market share between the two gold ETFs continued to rear its head.

Spiking interest in precious metal was also evident in the $66.3 million in creations on the iShares Silver Trust (NYSEArca:SLV), another sign that investors were on tenterhooks as they awaited the next non-farms payrolls report on Friday morning, according to data compiled by IndexUniverse.com.

The long euro-dollar CurrencyShares Euro ETF (NYSEArca:FXE) meanwhile collected $62.5 million in an bet that the dollar would keep losing ground since the Federal Reserve said it was contemplating more "quantitative easing." Quantitative easing, or QE, is an extraordinary measure involving central bank purchases of bonds that are designed to keep yields and borrowing rates lower, thus theoretically spurring borrowing.

Redemptions

GLD topped IndexUniverse.com's redemptions list, and was joined in the top three by two heavily traded U.S. equity ETFs.

The PowerShares QQQ ETF (NYSEArca:QQQQ) of Nasdaq's 100-biggest companies and the SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (NYSEArca:DIA) had outflows of $518.6 million and $317.8 million, respectively.

Overall, $641.6 million flowed out of U.S. ETFs yesterday and, given the market's declines yesterday, total exchange-traded product assets eased to $920.42 billion.

The Dow Jones Industrial average dipped 19.07 points yesterday to 19,948.58.
