Outflows from U.S. stock funds accelerated mid-August after hopeful signs that they might be slowing down, according to the latest statistics from the Investment Company Institute.

Since the beginning of the year, investors have pulled more than $75 billion from U.S. funds.

Non-U.S. equity funds also took a beating, losing an estimated $1.40 billion in outflows for the week, almost three times the $557 million withdrawn a week earlier.
