Last week, ETFs pulled in $10 billion in capital. U.S. fixed-income ETFs led the way higher with $4.5 billion in inflows, closely followed by $3.9 billion in international equity ETFs, per etf.com. U.S. equity ETFs saw outflows of $382.4 million.

As such, Schwab Short-Term U.S. Treasury ETF (SCHO - Free Report), iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (EEM - Free Report), Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF (VTI - Free Report), iShares J.P. Morgan USD Emerging Markets Bond ETF (EMB - Free Report) and JPMorgan BetaBuilders Europe ETF (BBEU - Free Report) dominated the top creation list last week.

Wall Street had a volatile week with the S&P 500 dropping 0.7% and the Nasdaq Composite Index rising 0.6%. America hit its $31.4 trillion debt limit last week, prompting the Treasury Department to begin using a series of accounting maneuvers to avoid a government shutdown. The standoff between the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and President Joe Biden's Democrats on lifting the ceiling could lead to a fiscal crisis in a few months.

Both retail sales and wholesale prices data released last week, fell more than expected in December. The former spurs concerns over the health of the economy while the latter indicates a slowdown in price growth. Additionally, another data showed that new home construction fell to a five-month low in December as higher mortgage rates weighed on demand.
