Emerging Markets: Preview of the Week Ahead

June 03, 2018
(from my colleague Dr. Win Thin)

EM FX put in a mixed performance Friday, and capped off an overall mixed week.  Over that week, the best performers were IDR, TRY, and INR while the worst were BRL, MXN, and ARS.  US yields are recovering and likely to put renewed pressure on EM FX.

Ironic Twists to End the Tumultuous Week

June 01, 2018
The week is ending quite a bit different than it began.  The main banking concern is not in Italy but in German, where shares in Deutsche Bank shares fell to a record low yesterday, and S&P Global cut its credit rating one step to BBB+ (third-lowest investment grade). 
The political angst is not focused on Rome but Madrid, where Rajoy lost a vo…
