US-based bond funds post inflows of $1.42 bln in latest week -ICI – Yahoo Finance

Bond funds had estimated inflows of $1.42 billion in the latest reporting week, compared with estimated outflows of $8.20 billion the previous week.

They had estimated inflows of $224 million for the week ended Aug.13, compared with estimated outflows of $427 million in the previous week.
