CAPITAL FLOWS IN GLOBAL MARKETS

The capacity of investors to withstand a market surge that most on Wall Street think is doomed is dwindling.

In April so far, investors poured over US$12.6 billion into equities ETFs, the highest monthly inflow since January and double the rate in February and March.

Federal Reserve officials plan to hike interest rates by a quarter of a percentage point next month and signal a potential halt from the biggest hiking campaign in decades on concern that repercussions from recent bank failures could slow the economy.

Bank deposits in the United States fell by US$76.2 billion last week, more evidence that the economy is still vulnerable following a series of bank collapses.
