    ETF Scorecard: January 11 Edition

    To help investors keep up with the markets, we present our ETF Scorecard. The Scorecard takes a step back and looks at how various asset classes across the globe are performing. The weekly performance is from last Friday’s open to this week’s Thursday close. Despite worries about trade wars and an economic slowdown across the board, the U.S. job market is making great strides. In the last month of 2018, the U.S. economy added 312,000 jobs, nearly double the figure expected by analysts. The showing for November itself was revised up by 21,000 to 176,000. At the same time, hourly earnings increased by 0.4% in December on average compared with 0.3% expected by pundits. Such a rise in hourly earnings has not been seen since September. Meanwhile, the unemployment rate jumped from 3.7% to 3.9%, a sign the labor market is expanding and more people are joining the labor force. Amid market turbulence, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell attempted to ease market concerns, saying he was aware of the risks stemmed from raising interest rates too quickly and was listening carefully to what the markets had to say. Stocks posted a strong rally this week. On Thursday, Powell spoke again, saying the Fed can be patient on monetary policy given the stable inflation. The Federal Reserve minutes revealed that policymakers have become more dovish, finally acknowledging the risks related to a slowdown in China, trade wars and political turbulence. U.S. non-manufacturing purchasing managers’ index (PMI) dropped dramatically in December, from 60.7 to 57.6, signaling a deteriorating sentiment. U.S. crude oil inventories declined by 1.7 million barrels in the week ended January 4, following two straight weeks of flat gains. Stockpiles have not seen a weekly rise since the end of November when they ended a ten-week streak of gains. U.K. economic output expanded 0.2% in November, beating expectations of 0.1%. The upbeat figure comes as the country still struggles to reach a Brexit solution, with the government and the Parliament at odds. An increasingly likely scenario is to push back the March 29 exit date to avoid chaos.

    Brazil's new president has limited time to pass key reform and keep markets happy, analyst says

    Global investors cheered Brazilian stocks toward the end of last year amid expectations that Jair Bolsonaro will be able to push through changes to help the country's economy recover from a devastating recession. "Sentiment could shift if the administration fails to make headway on pension reform over the next six months, thereby missing this historic opportunity," says one analyst. Jair Bolsonaro's presidential victory in Brazil last year propelled Brazilian stocks to a sharp rally to close out a wild 2018.

    Brazil Stocks Hit Record High Bolsonaro Sweeps To Power Amid Pro-Business Agenda

    Brazilian stocks jumped to the highest level on record Monday following a decisive victory for free-market proponent Jair Bolsonaro in yesterday's Presidential elections that could trigger moves to privatize some of Latin America's biggest companies amid broader economic reforms. Bolsonaro, the first candidate with military experience to lead Brazil since the mid 1980s, has vowed to tackle corruption, crime and 'elitism' in the world's fourth-largest democracy, won 55.2% of Sunday's vote in a run-off against left-wing rival Fernando Haddad. The 64-year old former Army captain has also said he wants broader fiscal reforms in Latin America's biggest economy and will likely appoint the highly-respected Paulo Guedes in the country's top fiance post.

    Brazil ETFs Run Into Resistance as Runoff Looms

    Brazilians head back to the polls for an Oct. 28, 2018, second-round election runoff, where it's likely that they will vote in far-right populist Jair Bolsonaro as their next president. Despite the bravado, Bolsonaro has a significant task ahead of him, if elected. Brazil's gross domestic product (GDP), a measure of a country's economic growth, grew just 1% year over year as of August 2018 – analysts had expected an increase of 1.1%.

    What Brazil’s Election Means For Investors

    Brazilian stocks and the iShares MSCI Brazil Capped ETF (EWZ) retreated Thursday as global markets pulled back, but EWZ has recently been one of the best-performing single-country exchange traded funds.
