By
A A A

Investors poured nearly $3 billion into U.S.-listed ETFs in the past week, led by quite sizable creations in the iShares Silver Trust (NYSEArca:SLV), which helped lift total U.S.-listed ETF assets to a new record of more than $1.4 trillion.

SLV added $603 million, all of it more or less on Wednesday, Jan. 16 in an asset haul that amounted to 18.4 million ounces, or just slightly less than the entire amount of net inflows in the preceding 12 months, according to a story on Hard Assets Investor.

The rise in assets to a record $1.403 trillion was aided by a stock market that rose. The  Dow Jones industrial average tagged on 124 points, or just under 1 percent, to end Thursday at 13,596.02.

The least-popular fund in the past week was the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (NYSEArca:SPY), which suffered outflows of $4.36 billion, according to data compiled by IndexUniverse. SPY, which celebrates its 20 th anniversary this month, is the biggest ETF in the world. It ended the week with assets of $124.36 billion.
