    June 6 (Reuters) - Investors' aversion to risk-taking
intensified in the latest week, stemming from trade tensions
between the United States and China as well as Mexico, with
U.S.-based domestic equities funds posting $10 billion of cash
withdrawals, according to Refinitiv's Lipper research service on
    It was the group's second consecutive week of cash outflows,
with a four-week moving average now at negative $9 billion,
Lipper data showed. 
    U.S.-based, high-yield junk bond funds, which move in
sympathy with equity markets, posted cash withdrawals of over
$3.2 billion in the week ended Wednesday, their second straight
week of outflows.   
    Investors sought shelter in money market and Treasury funds.
    U.S.-based money-market funds attracted about $5.9 billion
of inflows in the latest week, extending their weekly inflow
streak since the middle of April. U.S.-based government-Treasury
bond funds attracted more than $6.77 billion of inflows in the
week, their fourth straight week of inflows, Lipper said.
    The following is a broad breakdown of the flows for the
week, including mutual funds and exchange-traded funds:
