    Tom Lydon on Fox: Investors Should Look to Emerging Markets, Small Caps

    Emerging markets have been marred by the trade wars between the U.S and China, causing a negative ripple effect into emerging market ETFs, such as the Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets ETF (VWO) --down 7.67% YTD, iShares Core MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (IEMG) --down 7.3% YTD and iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (EEM) --down 7.78% YTD. "It's all been about trade wars," said ETF Trends Publisher Tom Lydon said during "Countdown to the Closing Bell" on Fox Business Network on Friday. While the majority of investors might be driven away by the red prices in emerging markets, they should be looked at as being substantial markdowns, espcially if trade negotiations between the U.S. and China result into something materially positive.

    Contrarian Investors’ Positions after BAML Survey

    A record number of fund managers in the BAML (Bank of America Merrill Lynch) September survey believe that gold (IAU) is undervalued, trading at a 17-year low. The SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD) has fallen ~8.5% year-to-date and ~13% from its April peak. It’s usually considered a safe-haven asset in which investors take refuge in the event of uncertainty and risk. However, gold has not been able to draw safe-haven bids so far in 2018 since the strong US dollar (UUP) keeps weighing it down.

    Tom Lydon on CNBC: Opportunities in Emerging Markets, Fixed Income

    The Nasdaq Composite shed 1.43% at Monday's closing bell, thanks to investors fretting over the additional tariffs U.S. President Donald Trump is set to impose on $200 billion of Chinese goods. Apple lost 2.7% on potential issues looming as the trade war escalation between the U.S. and China could negatively impact computer parts. While the trade wars continue to move and shake the U.S. capital markets, it hasn't deterred investors from deploying capital into exchange-traded funds (ETFs)--$167.9 billion worth of inflows.

    Emerging Markets Could Rise 20% in Fourth Quarter

    The iShares MSCI Emerging Markets Index Fund ( EEM) has been sold aggressively since January 2018, when the Trump administration fired the first shot in a multi-front trade war focused on Chinese goods and north-south commerce. The index has fallen nearly 20% since that time, mired in a bear market that should grow exponentially worse following the impositions of $200 billion in new tariffs.

    Tom Lydon on Fox: Finding Value in Emerging Market ETFs

    The capital markets possibly got an early smoke signal that the current bull run in U.S. equities might be stopping for air as the latest consumer price index numbers showed inflation rose at a slower pace than expected. During this bull run that has seen a heavy emphasis on growth-oriented plays, U.S. equities have been the default maneuver, but that may change with a steady shift to value, which could benefit China and emerging markets. While the stock market has been largely tepid this week, the major indexes returned to their upward trajectory as the Dow, Nasdaq Composite and S&P 500 all saw gains in today's trading session, helped, in part, by renewed trade talks between the U.S. and China.

    Could the US Dollar’s Rally Fizzle to Gold’s Benefit?

    Year-to-date, the UUP ETF (UUP) has risen 5.2%, while the SPDR Gold Shares ETF (GLD) has declined 8.4%. According to a Reuters poll, while the US dollar could hold onto its gains for the rest of this year, it’s unlikely to maintain its ascent after that. Other factors supporting the dollar such as rate hikes and trade tensions have now been priced into the dollar. Morgan Stanley analysts also believe that the US dollar is “topping out,” according to Bloomberg.
