Emerging Markets Stocks’ Months-Long Rally Rolled On Last Week

Jan 13 11:01 2020 Print This Article

Another week, another gain for shares in emerging markets, which posted the strongest increase for the major asset classes over the trading week through January 10, based on a set of exchange traded funds.

Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets (VWO) rose 1.2% last week, marking the sixth straight weekly advance for the fund. Except for a three-week lull in November, VWO has increased in every week since late-September.

The rally continued in overseas trading today, fueled by reports

that the US and China will sign a partial trade deal this week. “With most of

the broad strokes of a rather limited deal already revealed, what markets will

be watching for more closely will be the precise legal wording of the deal,” advises

Vishnu Varathan, a senior economist at Mizuho Bank.
