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 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.
