    Something most people have missed during the recent market downturn is that while the retail mutual fund investor has been fleeing the US stock market, pulling money out at a higher rate than even after Sept 11, the institutional players have been buying hand over fist.

    The retail investors have very, very little at stake here. That, I think explains why we didn't see the panic we usually see in sentiment measures like AAII and the like.
