Emerging markets got bolstered on Monday as U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese president Xi Jinping ceased fire on their tariff-for-tariff battle, agreeing to a 90-day truce to ameliorate their differences on trade. Emerging markets, in particular, have felt the pangs of the trade wars between the U.S and China, causing a negative ripple effect into EM ETFs, such as the Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets ETF (VWO) --down 15.89% YTD, iShares Core MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (IEMG) --down 16.25% YTD and iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (EEM) --down 16.34% YTD. On Monday, VWO climbed 2%, IEMG rose 2.2%, EEM ticked 2.03% higher, and as such, Direxion Daily MSCI Emerging Markets Bull 3x Shares (EDC) joined the party with a gain of 6.46% as of 2:00 p.m. ET.
The capital markets got a reprieve from the ongoing trade wars between the United States and China as U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese president Xi Jinping agreed to cease fire on their tariff-for-tariff battle, causing the Dow Jones Industrial Average to climb over 300 points on Monday. The two leaders met at the G-20 Summit in Buenos Aires, putting global markets on pause as the two economic superpowers met to hopefully ameliorate their trade differences. "The explicit delay in tariffs is on the positive end of expectations," said Helen Qiao, China and Asia economist with Bank of America Lynch.
You might think there's no such thing as large draw-downs given the extended bull market throughout much of 2018, but as for emerging markets investors, they believe. 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 15.89% YTD, iShares Core MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (IEMG) --down 16.25% YTD and iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (EEM) --down 16.34% YTD.

Progress in U.S.-Sino trade talks and hiking of benchmark rates by two Asian central banks put emerging market ETFs in focus.
Call it investor shrewdness or overexuberant hope, but capital allocators into emerging markets won't budge, according to ETF Trends Publisher Tom Lydon on CNBC's Closing Bell on Friday, who has seen continued flows into the EM space--a sign that EM investors are doubling down on the notion that a U.S.-China trade deal will materialize. While the majority of investors might be driven away by the red prices in emerging markets, Lydon believes they should be looked at as substantial markdowns, especially if trade negotiations between the U.S. and China result into something materially positive--that's what emerging markets bettors are essentially banking on. "The thing that's the most surprising regarding flows is money still coming into emerging markets ETFs," said Lydon.
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.

Broadly speaking, emerging markets funds are getting slammed this year. The widely followed MSCI Emerging Markets Index, which serves as the benchmark for a slew of active and passive emerging markets funds, is down nearly 15% year-to-date.
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 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.
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.
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) .
