Emerging markets are still drawing investor dollars in the wake of the recent sell-off over the crisis in Turkey, according to a UBS report. Turkey, a top pick among investors lately, drew $191 million in inflow last week, its highest weekly inflows in more than five years, according to EPFR data. "Based on our flows-based investor positioning model, Turkey replaced Colombia as the most crowded emerging market, while Brazil replaced India as the second least crowded market after Russia," said a UBS report.

Multiple key Asian economies released their Purchasing Managers' Index data for July this week. Most countries noted diminished production during the month, but why was this the case? Let's take a closer look.
The stock category, one of the strongest of 2017, has seen a dramatic reversal this year, tumbling into correction territory amid a number of high-profile headwinds, with issues ranging from global political uncertainty to currency headwinds. The region, as measured by the Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets ETF (VWO) — an exchange-traded fund that is one of the most popular ways to invest in the region broadly — is down 4.9% so far this year. Much of these losses have come over the past three months, as tensions between the U.S. and its major trading partners — notably China — have increased, clouding the region’s growth outlook.
Emerging markets stocks and emerging markets ETFs, such as the Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets Index ETF (VWO) , have been pinched this year by a stronger U.S. dollar. VWO, the largest emerging markets ETF by assets, is down about 5% year-to-date. Conversely, the PowerShares DB U.S. Dollar Index Bullish Fund (NYSEArca: UUP) , which tracks the USD’s movements against a basket of major developed currencies, is higher by about 4%.

Global markets might seem unusually risky at the moment, with stocks vulnerable to the threat of a trade war and bonds facing rising interest rates, but one investment firm is fairly optimistic about pretty much everything.
It's no question that emerging markets ETFs have taken their fair share of punishment this year with the trade disputes between the United States, China and European Union inflicting the majority of the damage, but they got a reprieve today. The MSCI Emerging Markets Index was up 0.53 percent today, while three of the biggest Emerging Markets ETFs according to total assets also responded in the green-- Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets ETF (VWO) was up 1.62 percent, iShares Core MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (IEMG) was up 1.45 percent and iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (EEM) was up 1.50 percent. A welcome sign to emerging markets ETF investors who have seen all three of these ETFs getting downward pressure year-to-date.

NATALIA GURUSHINA: Welcome, I’m Natalia Gurushina, Chief Emerging Markets Economist at VanEck. With global rates normalizing, geopolitics still posing major risks, and with one of the longest bull runs in U.S. stocks apparently stalling, 2018 might be a year of paradigm shift. I am here today with VanEck CEO, Jan van Eck, to discuss his outlook, macroeconomic outlook, and also to talk about his views on the most appealing opportunities in this challenging environment. So let me ask you a very simple question first: Is there still an investment case for real assets, including commodities?
