The worst emerging-market fund performance today isn't that of South Korea after a bomb test there, but the iShares MSCI Turkey exchange-traded fund (TUR), which was down 3% after German politicians spoke against Turkey's possible bid for European Union membership. The fund invested in Turkey, with a market value of $424 million, is up 41% this year as equities recover from a failed coup in July 2016 and a narrowly-won referendum earlier this year gave the president sweeping power through constitutional reform. Now, Turkey's on-again, off-again desire to join the EU is taking center stage in Germany, which had a sizable Turkish immigrant population before the recent surge of Middle East refugees.

As Instinet technical analyst Frank Cappelleri put: "While doldrum-esque, the price action was good enough to stop the bleeding." While the market isn't very far from its highs, it has been lagging lately from a global, multi-asset perspective. The SPDR S&P Retail ETF (XRT) has been dealing with downside pressure for pretty much all of 2017. Cappelleri noted that the ETF made a new low last week and while the S&P has not needed the sector's help to hang near its highs, a more substantive move with staying power by retail stocks could help the broader market secure new highs.

Emerging Markets Emboldened after the failed coup one year ago and a referendum giving the president sweeping power this spring, Turkey’s government is drifting from democracy. Authorities in most cases allege ties to Fethullah Gulen, the former ally of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and imam who denies claims he was the coup mastermind. Turkey calls him and his followers terrorists.
Goldman Sachs Asset Management continues to expect emerging markets to outperform developed markets, even if quantitative easing changes foreshadow a bumpy ride going forward. Ergo "it is "too early to de-risk for the end of a cycle that we expect to last for another couple of years," GSAM concludes, noting the potential for double-digit outperformance relative to developed economies. The risk is that rising interest rates will slow economies globally, but especially that of the United States.
