Here's what I think you may be missing. Mutual funds have their own year-end which in alot of cases is October and so they may be selling so that when the capital gains distributions are done these may be minimized in some cases. So, for them, they would sell in October to realize the loss and couldn't buy back till a month later assuming they would.Also, the key is to note the selling done and not to look at the buying which can make some sense in actively managed funds as they may choose to dump so-called losers and go hunting for those few great stocks to make their returns look better.JB
