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.
The developing markets have been whipsawed by a mix of a strong dollar, rising interest rates and trade concerns. The Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets ETF (VWO) fell 9.3%, iShares Core MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (IEMG) dropped 8.9% and JPMorgan Diversified Return Emerging Markets Equity ETF (JPEM) declined 6.1% so far this year. 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.

Emerging-market stocks have been one of the most volatile asset categories of 2018, suffering major losses as investors grapple with severe headwinds.
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 stocks and emerging markets ETFs, such as the Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets Index ETF (NYSEArca: VWO), are being crimped by the resurgent dollar and that scenario may not abate anytime ...
Among the emerging market (VEU) currencies, the Argentinian peso, Turkish (TUR) lira, Indonesia rupiah, and Indian rupee are declining to all-time lows. The US dollar is also strengthening against all major currencies, including those of emerging markets. As the US dollar strengthens and interest rates rise, the cost of servicing US debt for other countries goes up.
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.
There is a wildfire blazing across much of the global stock market, and while it has yet to really spread to the U.S., investors are increasingly worried that the positive attributes of the domestic economy will be enough to insulate stocks from the turmoil abroad.
HONG KONG/SHANGHAI (Reuters) - A U.S. police investigation into an allegation of rape against JD.com Inc (JD.O) CEO Richard Liu has hammered the e-commerce giant's shares, with the case laying bare risks posed by his iron grip on management and the lack of other leaders to challenge him. "You see only Richard Liu's footprints all over the company.

Emerging market stocks slumped to a two-week low Wednesday, as pressure continued to mount on curries in developed economies around the world amid a surge in the U.S. dollar and concerns over the impact of trade tensions on global economic growth. Talk that Indonesia will fall into the same fate as other troubled emerging countries like Argentina, Turkey or South Africa has sent Indonesian stocks to its worst intraday drop in three years. The benchmark MSCI International Emerging Markets index was marked 0.66% lower by mid-day in Europe and trading at 1,040.17 points, the lowest level since August 23, while India's Sensex index was seen 0.4% to the downside, extending its five-day slide to 2.3%.
As the U.S. dollar rallies, other nations, especially those with emerging markets, are suffering from weakening currencies against the benchmark. Starting with the crash of the Turkish lira a few weeks ago, the Mexican peso, Argentinean peso, South African rand, and Indonesian rupiah have all crashed in a very short span of time.
MARKET PULSE Major exchange-traded funds that track emerging-market equities tumbled on Tuesday, as turmoil continued to swirl around a number of emerging economies. The Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets ETF (VWO) sank 2.
Emerging market stocks extended their declines Friday as investors continue to pull cash from some of the world's biggest developing economies amid concerns that the greenback's recent rally will pressure the cost of servicing some of the $3.7 trillion in debt taken on in the ten years since the global financial crisis. Argentina has been at the forefront of the recent emerging market pullback this week, with the peso suffering its biggest single-day slump in three years -- including a fifth of its value yesterday -- before the central bank stepped in with a move to lift interest rates to an eye-wattering 60% amid concerns that President Mauricio Macri's efforts to cut spending and stave off a looming recession in South America's third largest economy will ignite social unrest that could toppled his government.
The Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets ETF (VWO) , the largest emerging markets exchange traded fund by assets, is lower by 8% year-to-date. Not surprisingly, some market observers are citing the Federal Reserve's tighter monetary policy as one reason for the slump in developing world equities. The recently resurgent U.S. dollar could be one reason why investors are retreating from emerging markets equities.
Some of the world’s largest money managers are concerned that President Donald Trump could escalate his trade stance and throw the emerging markets into greater turmoil. Nevertheless, investors who concerned ...
Everyone hates emerging markets as the MSCI Emerging Markets Index has fallen 20%, but the decline may soon be over.
The disconnect between U.S. equities and international stocks is growing wider, but this disparity will not last forever. After the recent underperformance in foreign markets, exchange traded fund investors may find an opportune moment to jump into relatively cheap global equities. For instance, if one looks at price momentum – it is positive for US stocks and negative for Europe and Emerging markets across all relevant lookback windows [one month, three months, six months and 12 months].
