Mutual Fund Redemptions
Mutual fund redemptions occur when mutual fund investors are selling their mutual funds. This will give you a feel for what investors are thinking. You can find this information on typical financial websites or your daily newspapers business section.
Trying to figure out when investors are selling their mutual funds is actually important for a couple of reason. First it signals a potential bear market because investors are pulling out of the funds. On the flip side though, it can set up new investors to get in when the funds bottom out.
So just take some time to make sure you do not get caught off guard when investors start to bale out of mutual funds.
