Investors, heartened by an ongoing stream of economic data, plowed $3.6 billion into ETFs in the past week and, combined with a rising market, total U.S.-listed ETF assets rose to a record of almost $1.436 trillion.

The Vanguard Short-Term Bond ETF (NYSEArca:BSV) was the past week's most popular ETF, pulling in $476.9 million. A number of other Vanguard funds littered the Top 10 creations list, including the Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets Index ETF (NYSEArca:VWO), which gathered $177 million.

The 10 least popular funds included the gold bullion ETF, SPDR Gold Shares (NYSEArca:GLD) some of the market's biggest bond funds, including the $21 billion iShares Barclays TIPS Bond Fund (NYSEArca:TIP) and the SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (NYSEArca:JNK). The SPDR Gold (NYSEArca:GLD) lost $368.6 million, while JNK and TIP bled $405.6 million and $144.6 million, respectively.

The presence of gold and junk bonds on the redemptions table was consistent with growing views that the economy is finally on a definitive trajectory of healing, after more than four years of volatile trade and choppy economic data in the aftermath of the market meltdown in September 2008.
