Investors find buying opportunities after stock market volatility


Investors have been selling their protective and bearish exchange-traded funds throughout June in order to buy equity, according to Hargreaves Lansdown.

There has been a movement away from defensive holdings and gold, which was once perceived as a safe asset. At the same time traditional UK Equity products such as FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 trackers have been popular in June on the Hargreaves Lansdown Vantage platform.   
Adam Laird (pictured), passive investment manager at Hargreaves Lansdown, says: “We see some investors who are quick to pick up on market trends like to use ETFs for short term investments. ETFs are liquid and easily traded which allows investors to take tactical positions. Clients have taken advantage of the selloff in May and June and have found a buying opportunity to top up their exposure to shares- in particular the FTSE 100.  In order to do this they have been selling inverse products (which should rise when the market falls) and gold ETFs. This is a positive sign for the market and suggests that there is belief that the correction is not the start of something more severe.”
