Most sources, including FINSUM, have been concluding that the emerging markets flare up centered on Turkey, would not develop into a correction or financial crisis for developed markets. Today that position is looking weaker, as stocks fell sharply across the world yesterday, and commodity markets got routed. Emerging market stock indices have fallen back into a bear market. While EMs fell big, global markets saw share plunges exacerbated by a dismal earnings report for one of China’s big tech companies, which then seeped into tech shares globally.
FINSUM: The narrative here is that Turkey sparked a big selloff and now fears over China will continue to drag EMs down. This could be the start of a global recession, but perhaps it will not be accompanied by huge losses in developed markets.
