J.P. Morgan's Nicolas Aguzin argued that if you're a long-term, strategic investor, it's worth looking at emerging market returns, pointing to positive fundamentals but adding that valuations could still fall further due to market sentiment and the perception of trouble, CNBC reports.
In the midst of escalating trade war tensions between China and the U.S., the economic health of each country seems to be going in the opposite direction. The U.S. has a robust economy, while China, on the other hand, has been showing signs of an economic slowdown.

Anxiety in the market surrounding the potential of a trade war between the United States and China has sent stocks lower over the last two weeks. The fears all began when the Trump administration took the first shot over the bow, implementing tariffs on $50 billion worth of Chinese goods. The tit-for-tat continued with President Trump announcing on Monday that tariffs on an additional $200 billion worth of Chinese goods could also be implemented.
As the United States imported just $130 billion into China last year, it may be difficult for China to directly counter Donald Trump’s threat of imposing tariffs on $200 billion of US imports from China. However, there are many other ways China could hit back. The simplest measure would be to switch to producers or manufacturers from other countries. China (FXI) could also increase tariffs on US imports, making US imports unmarketable in China.
The latest news of U.S. President Donald Trump imposing a 25 percent charge on up to $50 billion in Chinese goods sank five large China ETFs in the process. At the opening of the U.S. markets, the Dow sank over 200 points, the S&P 500 sank 12 points and the NASDAQ was down 30 points. In turn, China ETFs with the largest total assets responded on the down side-- iShares China Large-Cap ETF (FXI) was down 1.64%, iShares MSCI China ETF (MCHI) was down 1.38%, KraneShares CSI China Internet ETF (KWEB) was down 0.87%, SPDR S&P China ETF (GXC) was down 1.22%, and Xtrackers Harvest CSI 300 China A ETF (ASHR) was down 1.33%.
After breaking the four-week gaining streak last week, China’s Shanghai Composite Index started this week on a weaker note and declined in the first three trading days. However, the Shanghai Composite Index opened higher on May 31 and rebounded from 19-month low price levels reached on Wednesday.
