Emerging Market Equities - Macro/Sentiment & Valuations

In this video I take you through the outlook for emerging market equities, focusing on the macro drivers, sentiment setup, and valuations picture.  The charts come from a recent edition of the Weekly Macro Themes report, which dealt directly with these issues as well as a couple of key supporting topics (i.e. EMFX, the USDCNY, and the broader global macro pulse).

The main takeaways from the presentation are:

-EM equity breadth has sharply broken down, and the shorter term indicators look oversold.

-EM equity sentiment has fallen after previously reverting to neutral; providing a minor bullish contrarian signal.

-Valuations have improved, and although not as cheap as the late-18 lows, are still compelling on a medium-term timeframe.

-The big risk for emerging markets is that the US dollar has another run, or that other macro drivers such as China and/or commodities roll over again.
