LONDON (Reuters) – Investors pumped $9.7 billion (£7.6 billion) into equity funds in the week to Wednesday, with emerging markets seeing their biggest inflows in 41 weeks, Bank of America Merrill Lynch said on Friday.

With rising hopes of a U.S.-China trade deal, investors were in risk-on mood, redeeming money from gold. The yellow metal funds saw outflows of $1.7 billion, the biggest since December 2016.

BAML said the rotation from U.S. stocks to the rest of the world continued this week with emerging markets sucking in $3.3 billion and Europe $1.5 billion.

Bond funds took in $4.2 billion, BAML added, citing EPFR data.
