The Direxion Daily MSCI Mexico Bull 3X Shares (NYSEARCA:MEXX) slid 15.40 percent, making it the third-worst performer among Direxion's suite of leveraged bullish ETFs. MEXX looks to deliver triple the daily returns of the MSCI Mexico IMI 25/50 Index (M1MX5IM). Newly elected President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, or AMLO as he is commonly called, was sworn into office last Saturday.
Andrés Manuel López Obrador was recently sworn in as Mexico's 58th president, but will the recent regime change result in a "Feliz Navidad" for the country as a whole and Mexico-focused exchange-traded funds (ETFs)? Early signs point to "yes" as President AMLO, his more familiar moniker, has taken early steps in the right direction. This stymied the momentum of Mexico-focused exchange-traded funds (ETFs) like the iShares MSCI Mexico Capped ETF (EWW) and Direxion Daily MSCI Mexico Bull 3X ShsETF (MEXX) --EWW gained as much as 3% on Monday's trading session, while MEXX rose as high as 9%.
As U.S.-Mexico border tensions escalate, the momentum of Mexico-focused exchange-traded funds (ETFs) like the iShares MSCI Mexico Capped ETF (EWW) and Direxion Daily MSCI Mexico Bull 3X ShsETF (MEXX) have become tenuous the past month as the country's newest president is set to take office. Andrés Manuel López Obrador, typically referred to as AMLO for short, will begin his six-year term as Mexico's new president on Saturday, December 1. AMLO will inherit a host of issues to fix, but as the country faces an influx of migrants from Central America who have congregated near the U.S.-Mexico border in Tijuana, this latest development has come to the forefront of his expansive task list.
Mexico's president-elect has yet to take office, but Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador already caused a stir with his proposals, igniting a sell-off of the iShares MSCI Mexico Capped ETF (EWW) . Obrador sparked controversy when his latest plans for his forthcoming presidency were deemed as damaging to Mexico's economy, causing Thursday's volatility in EWW. The exodus caused EWW to track below its 200-day moving average. Obrador's proposed moves include a push to limit the fees banks can charge customers as well as a decision to end a $13 billion airport project in Mexico City that already raised funds via overseas bonds.
Broadly speaking, emerging markets funds are getting slammed this year. The widely followed MSCI Emerging Markets Index, which serves as the benchmark for a slew of active and passive emerging markets funds, is down nearly 15% year-to-date.
As talks of trade war and other geopolitical factors have dominated headlines over the past several months, it has been natural for most North American investors focus their efforts on allocating capital domestically. In the paragraphs below, we'll take a look at the charts of three international exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that could be worth a closer look as we head into the final quarter of 2018. Despite the recent news that Swiss-based Novartis AG ( NVS) is laying off 2,000 employees, Switzerland is continuing its role as a hotbed for foreign investment, and on the chart of the iShares MSCI Switzerland Capped ETF ( EWL), the price has recently been able to close above the long-term resistance of its 200-day moving average.

In what has been a rough year for broader emerging markets benchmarks, exchange traded funds tracking Latin American markets are being repudiated.

“They (Canada) want to be part of the deal, and we gave until Friday and I think we’re probably on track. "We recognize that there is a possibility of getting there by Friday, but it is only a possibility, because it will hinge on whether or not there is ultimately a good deal for Canada," Trudeau announced in a press conference, according to CNBC.
Following this week's trade pact between the U.S. and Mexico, the Trump Administration is aiming to arm-wrestle Canada to agree to more favorable trade terms in the U.S., particularly in matters of agriculture and dairy. President Trump has gone as far to say that he will drop the "NAFTA" name and name this week's agreement the "United States-Mexico Trade Agreement," potentially leaving Canada out in the cold. However, the deal still faces approval from Congress, which is likely to move forward only if Canada is brought on board as a trilateral agreement is paramount given the relevance across many industries, including agriculture, autos, manufacturing, steel and energy.

Per a Politico report, the United States and Mexico are finalizing a deal on the automotive rules of origin section as part of an effort to revamp the North American Free Trade Agreement. This would mark a significant step forward in renegotiating NAFTA as the autos deal has been one of the primary points of contention in getting a deal done.
