The U.S. stock market might have rallied more than 2 percent in the week ended Thursday, Sept. 6, but investors still weren't eager to jump into U.S. equities funds. On the contrary, they took out a net of $4.63 billion from U.S. equities ETFs in the five-day period.

The SPDR S&P 500 ETF (NYSEArca:SPY) lost some $5.64 billion in the past week, while the iShares S&P 500 Index Fund (NYSEArca:IVV) bled $835 million, making the two funds some of the least popular ETFs of the week. The S&P 500 Index, meanwhile, rallied 2.3 percent in the same period, while the Dow Jones industrial average hit its highest mark since late 2007.

All told, total U.S.-listed ETF assets were still up on the week, at $1.249 trillion, thanks in part to the strong market price action. International equity strategies attracted a net of $666 million, and commodities funds snagged nearly $500 million in the week.

The single most popular ETF, on the other hand, was the iShares S&P 400 MidCap Index Fund (NYSEArca:IJH), which gathered $972 million in assets.

The SPDR Gold ETF (NYSEArca:GLD), the world's largest bullion fund, was also among the week's top creations, as it raked in $197 million in assets.
