Year End Sales

Year end fund flows are in, per Barron's this week:

Stock funds, despite rumors that the public is not in the markets yet, took in a ten-year record $1/4T; Bonds took in $100B at the first of the year, then took it back out, for dead even.
MMFs (money markets) had out flows for the fifth straight year, and commodities had negative flows for the first time on record.
