Is now the time to get into Emerging Markets?


Recommended Posts

The whole trump trade war has been crazy, and whilst there was a bit of vol around the announcements, it seems only now are we seeing all these linked companies and indices react and sell off a little. EM have been absolutely hammered and there is a huge huge disparity between the EM and rest of the world. This could means it's an opportunity to load up on some broad based EM ETF's...

reading an article in the FT today it was saying the price to book ratio on EM's is discounted by 36% to other developed countries (which is pretty evident if you look at some of those charts!). The primary issue for me now is deciding if this is the best place to put a few grand which I have in the bank. For example, maybe 2 to 5 which may do better to sit in some sort of low cost ETF with all the div reinvestment malarkey as well.

so is the trade war likely to be a kick off to global recession... or are we good for a bit of a rally over the next 12 months. I'm looking for signs to get in and "fill my boots" as the article says, but something is holding me back.

would be interested to hear thoughts as I can't quite make up my mind.

@cryptotraderIf there is to be a major global market meltdown, which maybe we have already seen the beginning of, EMs with get absolutely hammered because they are considered more risky.  There is a reason they are discounted.  I'd wait a while and see how the next few months play out.  To be completely transparent my bias is for a major crash across the board and I am all in cash, only trading on my SB accounts.  The only investment worth considering, in my view, is Gold, but be careful you do so in physical gold not ETF as these are typically not 100% physically gold backed.  Also use a reputable dealer.  Frankly for a few grand I'd just use IG SB.

Yes, whilst I do agree we're going to be looking at a major sell off and correction at some point, I don't feel like it can be as soon as people expect. I would doubt the recent trade wars would be enough to kick it off as it's so apparent that all the financial institutions and monetary funds, including those central government and international monetary committees would have a close eye on it and provide assistance as and when required.

I think the effect of the trade war will have is exhaust the options of these bodies and then we're going to be in a massive pile of ...

There is just too much debt, and as soon as that cracks you're going to be a wee boy stood below hoover dam, looking up and seeing the turmoil unfold in slow motion. We're certainly on path for a significant correction but where it comes from Is likely to be unknown. That's why it happens IMO - because we don't have an understanding of it and then it too late.

    • In the wake of a brewing conflict between the Nigerian government and Binance, cryptocurrency enthusiasts find themselves on edge, uncertain about the future of their digital investments. Rumors abound that Binance, along with other platforms, might be exacerbating the Naira's devaluation against the dollar, prompting the government to take a hard stance against the exchange. Despite longstanding allegations of wrongdoing, recent events have propelled the government to escalate its actions. The situation has escalated dramatically, with Binance's P2P platform disabled and a staggering $10 billion fine imposed for alleged illegal activities. This punitive measure, coupled with last year's $4.3 billion fine by the SEC, underscores the gravity of the situation. However, skepticism lingers regarding the astronomical sum demanded by the Nigerian government. While Binance has faced regulatory challenges in other jurisdictions, its resilience and market dominance have largely endured. Yet, the potential ramifications of losing access to a key crypto market like Nigeria cannot be ignored. Complicating matters further, the Nigerian House of Representatives has summoned Binance CEO Richard Teng, issuing a seven-day ultimatum for him to address allegations of terrorist financing and money laundering, among other charges. This development casts a shadow over the future prospects of Binance in the country. Amidst the uncertainty surrounding Binance's operations in Nigeria, users are scrambling to identify alternative platforms. While other centralized exchanges (CEX) remain operational within the country, the pressing question remains: which platform will emerge as the most dependable alternative should the situation worsen? https://punchng.com/reps-summon-binance-boss-over-alleged-terrorism-financing/
    • 2024 has been a good year for crypto traders with signs of a bullish market prevailing. For the first time in 3 years, we are witnessing BTC set a new ATH repeatedly. If you endured the prolonged bear market of the previous years, you deserve these gigantic green candles! In addition to BTC's incredible run, several alts have broken out nicely; Ai, memecoin, GameFi projects and so on have spiked. Most notably in the month of February is the run of CEX tokens. According to Foresight News, centralized exchange tokens boast of a widespread price spike in February, based on data from ICO Analytics. Standing tall amongst many is BGB with 62% increase, while ASD, BNB, and KCS witnessed gains of 45%, 33%, and 22% respectively. As a BGB holder myself who’s been holding since June 2023 at an average price of $0.45, it’s been an incredible journey. I’ve witnessed it smash its ATH over again, the latest coming in February when BGB set a new ATH of $1.15. Aside the juicy ROI, BGB usecases have been a flex for me, granting me access to exclusive events, like Launchpads where I’ve also managed mouth-watering gains from my participations. BNB had a remarkable run in the last bull cycle, sadly I missed out having sold mine for peanuts. If you said I’m stoked to right my wrong with BGB this time, you wouldn’t be far from the truth!  Which CEX token(s) are you keenly observing?
    • Look at the transaction log to see why, Most of the time it's because your stop loss is set too close.
