Mutual fund flows: This is stock regarding the total amount of money that goes in or out of all functional mutual funds in the country. Termed by a lot of economists as a “false positive” (since investment amounts are usually seen to scale the peak just prior to the market itself), it nevertheless assumes a position of importance on the indicator chart when the economy is in recession.
