    Bargain Hunters Should Look to Global ETFs

    Value investors who are looking for a deal should look to international ETFs as global stocks are now trading at their lowest valuations in over two years. Major indices in Europe, Japan, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Argentina and Canada are all trading in correction territory, or off at least 10% from a recent high, while the U.S. is testing that precipice of after a selloff last week wiped out all of the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average’s gains for the year, the Wall Street Journal reports. The selling and pessimism have also pushed the forward price-to-earnings ratio of the MSCI All Country World Index, which follows 23 developed and 24 emerging markets, to around 18, its lowest level since early 2016.

    Leveraged ETF Continues to Benefit as Emerging Markets Sell-Off Deepens

    Last week's sell-off in U.S. equities is spilling over into the emerging markets space, leaving investors to wonder when the strategy for value-hunting in EM turns into outright avoidance. One ETF that has been benefitting from EM's unceremonious fall from its rise in 2017 is the Direxion Daily MSCI Emerging Markets Bear 3X ETF (EDZ) . EDZ seeks daily investment results that equal 300% of the inverse of the daily performance of the MSCI Emerging Markets IndexSM. The index is a free float-adjusted market capitalization weighted index that is designed to represent the performance of large- and mid-capitalizations securities across the 24 emerging market countries.

    Emerging Markets Deeply Discounted, but Investors Must Use Due Diligence

    Emerging markets have been turned inside out this year after a spectacular run in 2017, but before an investor looks to dive into the deeply-discounted EM space after Wednesday’s 800-point drop in the Dow Jones Industrial Average, he or she must be still selective and exercise due diligence. Simply selecting a country-specific ETF in emerging markets without the proper research could be akin to catching a falling knife and as such, investors must use caution. While it may be enticing to see the red and buy into the dip, instabilities in certain countries’ financial systems could still leave these markets depressed, and as such, investors should shy away from these parts of the world.

    IMF Official: India Has Least Debt Among Emerging Markets

    The International Monetary Fund's director of fiscal affairs Vitor Gasper said that global debt reached a new high in 2017, topping the $182 trillion mark, but also said that India's debt, in particular, is much less than global debt as a percentage of the world's gross domestic product (GDP)--a positive economic sign that could benefit the  Direxion Daily MSCI India Bull 3x ETF (INDL) . "So, it is substantially less than the global debt as percentage of world GDP," Gasper said regarding India's debt, which is below the average of developed and emerging market economies.

    International-Focused ETF Delivers Strong Q3 Results with AI Technology

    In the meantime, trade wars have been racking international and emerging market funds, but one in particular, the EquBot AI Powered International Equity ETF (AIIQ) , produced a strong third quarter performance using a proprietary, quantitative model driven by artificial intelligence. Launched in June 2018, AIIQ is the first international-focused ETF that has successfully used AI to construct an international equity portfolio. While its developed market-focused fund peers experienced mixed results due to a choppy international market during Q3, AIIQ was able to buck the trend and deliver a return in excess of 3.4%, which bested its benchmark index--the MSCI ACWI ex-USA Index and the Vanguard FTSE Developed Markets ETF (VEA) .

    Leveraged Emerging Markets ETF Spikes on Rising U.S. Treasury Yields

    While emerging markets have been roiled by ongoing trade wars this year, they've only been exacerbated by surging U.S. Treasury yields as of late with the benchmark yields rising beyond the 3% level, taking investor attention away from equities and bonds from abroad. EDZ seeks daily investment results that equal 300% of the inverse of the daily performance of the MSCI Emerging Markets IndexSM. The fund invests in swap agreements, futures contracts, short positions or other financial instruments that provide inverse or short leveraged exposure to the index, which is a free float-adjusted market capitalization weighted index that is designed to represent the performance of large- and mid-capitalizations securities across the 24 emerging market countries.

    Tom Lydon on Fox: Investors Should Look to Emerging Markets, Small Caps

    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.
