AbleMarkets has released its latest IIA Index, which shows that institutional investors are highly persistent in their flows. The findings could have implications for quant traders and CFOs alike. Stay tuned for more from AbleMarkets, including analysis of the data and what it means for the markets.

AbleMarkets Institutional Investor Activity (IIA) Index shows that institutional flows are highly persistent. Institutional flows are the trades generated by large professional investing corporations, such as pension funds, mutual funds, hedge funds, etc. Often, trading decisions in such organizations take a long time, and the investment horizons exceed months or even quarters. Most importantly, large institutions when they trade execute very large positions. Such large positions cannot be processed in one go, so we detect highly correlated institutional flows from one day to the next.

For example, the Figure shows top net institutional buy flows recorded at the end of day yesterday, November 28, 2022. The flows shown are the highest net buy and were computed as averages of all the net intraday flows. The highest institutional net buy flow instruments were: Invesco DB US Dollar Index Bullish Fund (NYSEARCA:UUP), eHealth Inc. (NASDAQ: EHTH), Sonic Automotive Inc. (NYSE:SAH), O'Reilly Automotive Inc. (NASDAQ:ORLY), United Natural Foods Inc. (NYSE:UNFI). For all of the stocks shown in the Figure, the net institutional flows this morning also continued to be positive.

To sum it up, the flows of institutional investors are highly persistent and understanding them is essential to predicting future market movements.
