    [$$] Emerging Market Currencies: Down, but Not Out

    Emerging market currencies are falling back toward earth after an extended run in which they defied gravity—also known as rising U.S. interest rates. U.S. Treasury yields nearly doubled from mid-2016 to the end of 2017, which should have created a great sucking sound among emerging market assets. Instead, the WisdomTree Emerging Currency Strategy exchange-traded fund (CEW) rose 9% over those 18 months, underpinning a 35% surge in emerging market stocks.
