Investors sold commodity-focused exchange traded funds (ETFs) in the third quarter of 2018, as trade tensions between the US and China geared up, according to Morningstar Direct data.

ETFs that invest in a broad basket of commodities saw net outflows of €1.8 billion in Q3, while those that track the price of individual precious metals, like gold, saw €524 million withdrawn.
