The emerging markets have been outperforming, but some prominent Wall Street banks are issuing a word of caution if the risk-on sentiment suddenly sours. Investors who are wary of any potential risks can look to bearish or inverse exchange traded funds to hedge their developing market bets. After the quick rebound to start off the new year, Societe Generale SA, Bank of America Corp. and Wells Fargo & Co. are warning that there might not be much value left in developing nations, pointing toward potential pitfalls ahead, Bloomberg reports.
Thanksgiving week didn't get started with much to be thankful for on Monday as volatility decided to crash the pre-Turkey Day festivities, but with still three market sessions left in this short week, a rally could be brewing. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite didn't fare much better with both falling 45 points and over 200 points, respectively. “People put a lot of faith in tech companies to drive the markets higher, and to the extent that’s not happening, that’s very disappointing,” said Chris Zaccarelli, chief investment officer at the Independent Advisor Alliance.
Last week's sell-off in U.S. equities is spilling over into the emerging markets space, leaving investors to wonder when the strategy for value-hunting in EM turns into outright avoidance. One ETF that has been benefitting from EM's unceremonious fall from its rise in 2017 is the Direxion Daily MSCI Emerging Markets Bear 3X ETF (EDZ) . EDZ seeks daily investment results that equal 300% of the inverse of the daily performance of the MSCI Emerging Markets IndexSM. The index is a free float-adjusted market capitalization weighted index that is designed to represent the performance of large- and mid-capitalizations securities across the 24 emerging market countries.

While emerging markets have been roiled by ongoing trade wars this year, they've only been exacerbated by surging U.S. Treasury yields as of late with the benchmark yields rising beyond the 3% level, taking investor attention away from equities and bonds from abroad. EDZ seeks daily investment results that equal 300% of the inverse of the daily performance of the MSCI Emerging Markets IndexSM. The fund invests in swap agreements, futures contracts, short positions or other financial instruments that provide inverse or short leveraged exposure to the index, which is a free float-adjusted market capitalization weighted index that is designed to represent the performance of large- and mid-capitalizations securities across the 24 emerging market countries.

Amid escalating trade tensions between the U.S. and China, the world's two largest economies, Chinese stocks and the related US-listed ETFs are slumping.
